i sold my iphone 4 a few ago. I am super happy with my Blackberry 9900. I do have a few gripes. The lack of auto-focus on the Camera is a major buzz kill. Also the App for eBay is much better on the iPhone and the Paypal app is non-existent on Blackberry.
Besides that I have been super happy with the Bold. The keyboard is phenomenal. You can't compare the enjoyment you get from the tactile feedback of hitting keys to texting on the iPhone.Blackberry Bold 9900 | Carbon Fiber PU Leather Flip Case | Anti-Glare Screen Protector

I'm going to be getting an iPhone from work this month, so will let y'all know what I think in a few weeks. It'll be used side by side with my own 9900, and primarily as a "business" tool - lots of email, reading attached documents, taking pictures. We do have iPads and iPod touches at home, so I'm not a complete iOS noob. I'm guessing I'll be among the minority that use a BlackBerry as their personal device, and an iPhone for work (as opposed to the other way around).
Unlike other companies, only management is switching to the iPhone. BlackBerries will be retained for certain departments. Our production staff will be getting email, and will be issued BlackBerry Curves to replace their feature phones.Retired: 8703, 8130, 8330, 9630, 9800, 9900, PlayBook

It's amazing but also very true. I too am a long term bb user and went for a iPhone (first the 3GS that lasted a couple of months, then the 4 the same, sold. Then another 4 white and the 4 s. all of them lasted two to three months on my hands, all were sold) in between I've had almost all the bolds (9000, 9700 (not the 9780), 9790, 9900) and a 8900. After a while I bought a second cheap phone just because I missed bb, and bought a curve 9220 (3 days after that I went and bought a 9790) but I not a "2 phones" kind of person. I just sold my 4s, bought a iPad for fun and web and use my beloved 9790 as a REAL phone (small form factor and autofocus).
Once a crackberry always a crackberry, it's magic. I just hope rim doesn't betray all there fans (like me and you all) with bb10, and come with a new, all different system like all the bs around there. I want a communication device, not a toy (I have together iPad 2 for that). Please keep the support for os 7.1 (and go for the consumer/comercial needs with os10). make us proud!

I really like my 9900 for the keyboard, but if you're coming from an iPhone 4 you're taking a step back in terms of the operating system and other capabilities. If you can get a great deal on one then you should go ahead, but it seems like a funny time to adopt an OS on the way out when you'll probably be able to get a BB10 handset with a keyboard by summer.
If you don't care about apps / games / media, etc and primarily use it for messaging and emails then you'll probably love the 9900, but if you expect a lot more from a phone I would advise you to wait.

I started my BlackBerry addiction way back with the 7290. I've had many since then. I switched to an iPhone 3gs for about a month and that caught on fire through the charging port. I switched back to my bold 9000, then got the 9900. I loved the 9900 but I noticed everyone around me with the 4/4s and eventually caved for the 4. I had that for a couple months and missed my bold too much and switched again. I sold my iPhone 4, currently have the 9900, and bought a used bad esn iPhone 4 for cheap and currently use it as an ipod. I love the 9900 for the keyboard and the OS that I'm used to, and my next phone will definitely be the bb10 N-Series whenever it comes out.
