    the day has come !!

    Advertisement



    Now I don't want any of you to take this personal, but my days as a die hard BB user are cominmg to an end. As I finally got my hands on the BOLD today ! After the very long wait, I have decided that I will be getting the iPhone........ I know I know, and I don't want to hear it. The good news is, that I have a work issued curve that I will also be using all the time, and at the end of the month, that's being updated to the BOLD muhahahaha, I'm gonna have the best of both worlds. so yea this whold thing was a rant for nothing. Lol. Don't ask I was just in a mood.
    Cheers

    "Best of both worlds"? What is the "best" of dropped calls and no 3g thanks to dud chips? No MMN. No copy and paste. MobileMess missing emails. Serious security issues precluding use for enterprise. You are making me envious of the Bold - and for free thru employer?

    LOL! As if it's in the same league with the Bold!
    Though he'll probably enjoy certain features the gizzmo may have, and do his real world stuff on the much superior product from RIM

    Should be fun with the litigation against Apple over the unreliability of the new iphones with regards to speed, etc. http://www.al.com/business/birmingha...170.xml&coll=2 Think I'll stay with RIM.

    Iphone is a sweet novelty phone. For business it's not all that, its ok though I'll stick with bb, and wait for the touch bb.

    Well, BigDaddy, I'll wish you good luck with both phones! Have fun comparing, using and playing with them. Post back and let us know how you've come along with the change in a month or so - I, for one, would be interested to hear even though I'm not tempted by the iPhone.

    This is what RIM is trying to avoid. That is why I am not completly upset for the wait on the bold. The phone is good but the network sucks.

    The iPhone is unsuitable for business purposes due to SERIOUS security issues. They are being sued for misrepresentations involving performance attributable to junk chips and not insuring proper performance prior to release. Then we have a laughably shoddy MobileMess for BIS customers. Laurel & Hardy set up the millions trying to upgrade os and activate at the same time.
    Now as to Thunder and it's touch screen - I won't go there. Love the querty and am sticking with. What's of note is RIM's ingeneous development and marketing...flip, touch screen, and 3g BES querty about to hit the shelves with features that consumers have been clamoring for. Go RIM

    I echo your comments. It will be interested to hear from another persons perspective.

    That said, my best friend who is an early adopter, got the iPhone 3G, and it's very buggy, just like we have been reading about. Like myself, he's a hard core BlackBerry addict and only bought the iPhone to play with, not as a BB replacement. And yet even as a pure toy, it's marginal. And it's also important to note that neither of us are Apple detractors. Just realistic and spoiled by the world class reliability, functionality, and usefullness of a BlackBerry. Bottom line... nothing comes remotely close to a BlackBerry.

    As far as the wait for the Bold is concerned, one day it will be here, and we will quickly forget about the wait. For no other manufacturer, has a track record like RIM.

    Cheers

    Could you post a review? Since you will have used both the bold and iphone it would be nice to see what you think. All the reviews I have seen don't really give the iphone the credit It deserves and you seem like your willing to give it a chance.
    Thnx
