the best of both world is an iPad + a bb devices
but if i have to choose only 1 devices then i'll take the iPhone any day.
this BB , especially the newer devices doesn't have the stability and reliability of iOS
my media card and internal memory on my 9900 just error few days ago without apparent cause.
i know we should back up these, but still that's aint supposed to happen, i never have any memory error on my iOS devices.

Isn't it amusing how people who claim to not enjoy CB at all simply can't stay away???? It's because it's CRACKBERRY, the BEST BB site....

With Verizon it is easy to switch from the iphone 4 to the BlackBerry and back. It can be done online with a *228 call after to program the phone. The only thing is insurance. When I was going to my 9650 it was seamless as the tech insurance is cheaper. But when going to the iphone you had to call to switch the insurance as it is more expensive and the online system would not do it for you. Either way it never took me more than 10 min.

BB 9900 = Daily Driver
[insert Apple product here] = secondary device.
That's pretty much the combo I rolled with for a while a few years back. Blackberry was my daily driver and then I had an iPod Touch on the side for the games and stuff.--- Smartphone ---
Current: Apple iPhone 4S (16GB)

If you have a bis plan, all you need to do is sim swap. Don't call the carrier. Easy peasy. Only additional step is on iPhone making sure you have the right apn setting but that took 2 minutes and no jailbreak required, simply a trip to a a website to have to profile saved.
It's 11:48 pm in a Sunday night and I could take the sim out of my iPhone right now and by the time the 9900 powered up it'd be connected to the BIS without me doing a thing.
To clarify - BIS is the only data plan that works on any phone. All it includes is an extra layer that runs through RIMs NOC for services like email and BBM. I still get my email pushed to my iPhone because the email hits my inbox before its forwarded to RIM.

use both .... at the same time
just about all the guys i work with have 2 phones rogers lets you share data so we activate a micro sim on an ipad then use it in the iPhone while the primary sim stays in the BB. Boom problem solved exept that you have to carry 2 phones but i dont see that as an issue i usually have multiple devices on me neway

I left Blackberry for the Samsung Galaxy Note. (stupid) All my friends have Androids and kept telling me how incredible and fast their phones are. HA! I miss Blackberry. I want to sell or trade my Note for a 9900.

You chose wisely!
I just got the 9900. Wow, what a difference from the heavier and thicker Torch 9800.
Don't get me wrong, the Torch is a nice machine and worked well, flawless.
I hope to have the same experience with the 9900.
I can't get over how light it is. Got the swivel oem leather case.
It's like there is nothing there.Device: Blackberry Z10
Protection: OEM Leather Case. Also, BlackBerry Transform Case; black
Carrier: Rogers, AT&T, C&W, Vodafone Italy, BTL.
History: Bold 9700 > Torch 9800 > Bold 9900 > Z10
