    Default You don't realize how good a Berry is until you leave it

    I was one of many who jumped ship and left BB for an Android device. Yeah the Android does some pretty cool stuff but I realized I only used those cool things to show people what cool things Android can do. I miss the speed of the BB user interface. I was able to jump around so fast using the keyboard shortcuts. I really miss by BB.

    So I am waiting for OS6 to launch for the 9650 and I will be returning to you Blackberry.

    Good deal, Pauldovi! It's always nice to realize that sometimes you think ..... "Geez, the grass is really greener on the otherside. I should have no left"

    My roommate has a Droid and he's always saying that he has a smartphone and I don't. Yet when someone needs to know what a lyric to a song or retrieve an email that the hall staff sent out, I'm always done before he has his browser or email open

    Current Device: Blackberry Bold 9650

    Cool

    Good to find this thread, I have a few co-workers that love their Droids, I almost bolted but couldnt decide between the X and the Droid 2. The X seems too big and the 2 just doesnt seem like a professional's device, more like a teenagers device. The ability to use it as a hotspot is still pulling me that way, but I was thinking, why not wait until Verizon comes out with 4G before I make a move. Maybe there will be a new BB model by then that works on 4G! Anyway, my Bold is actually a strong smartphone, just wish it didnt take 9 minutes to reboot.

    The something you all are saying about coming back to the Blackberry is what I always do with the iPhone. I think it's just one of those things once you find something that fits and works for you it's hard to leave.

    Having been a longtime smartphone user and relatively new to the BlackBerry scene, I certainly agree that the BlackBerry platform does messaging extremely well and its use of shortcuts is very efficient. However, the platform, overall, is limited compared to Android, iOS, and even Windows. Personally, I plan to stick with a BlackBerry device for the messaging capabilities and because it does make for a better phone (stronger reception and longer battery life). But my Incredible is always in my other pocket for all my other internet needs and apps.

    If RIM were to jump on the Android platform, I'd think they'd crush everything in its path -- the efficiency and messaging capabilities of BlackBerry and the flexibility and customization of Android = killer combo.

    At the same time, different strokes for different folks... All platforms have their strengths and weaknesses that different personalities adapt to. As much as I could lament on some of the weaknesses of the BlackBerry platform, the same could be done for ALL smartphone platforms. Bottom line = you just go with what works for you.

    NAAHH! I'm in sales and work 60+ hours a week. I rely on my Blackberry quite a bit, I didnt mean the way the Droid 2 looks so much as the way it seems to be built for non work related functionality. I rely on getting my email as soon as it is sent, sometimes that can mean the difference in getting a deal or losing it. I also need a device that functions well as a phone and doesnt die half way through the day if Ive been using it without a break.

    The "instant" e-mail is one of the things about my BBs that I've gotten used to. My daughter just switched her Storm for the DX a few days ago and told me that the earlier issue, with not being able to get anything but g-mail without going through the web browser, is "all fixed" now, and she has set up all her e-mail accounts to "pop" her e-mail every 15 minutes. Not good enough for me... I'm spoiled now!

    She does admit that she misses BBM a lot. She suggested I download Google Talk for us to use instead, which I did, but I don't like to be bothered with either leaving it on all the time, or signing in and out.

    We shall see what happens over the next 25 days....

    I thought I was unique when I posted about coming from the Droid back to the BB, but there is a post like yours every few days.

    We are not alone.
    “The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who Is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost invariably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are.”

    hate to admit it but im charging up the bold i was ready to sell on here to use over the htc incredible i bought a month ago. The INC is awesome but i miss the true push email and the long battery life of the BB.

    android is a toy.. BB is a phone.

    I had a Droid X and my non-gmail mail took forever to arrive. I completely understand what you are talking about when it comes to emails. BlackBerry does email like no other. I sometimes get emails after on my BB than on the server.
