How many BB users are dying to get the Iphone?
How many of you are itching to upgrade and get this new Iphone? I have been a BB user for about 4 or 5 years and am just getting tired of everything. Any interesting app costs money, new OS upgrades are slow and sluggish, and the list goes on and on. I do not hate BB, I just wanted to see how many of you are going to be ditching your BB for the new Iphone?

BB til' I or RIM dies.
I'm actually converting/have converted iPhone users to BB because they're looking for a better communications tool and not just an App launcher.Seb

I'm staying with BB. The iphone doesn't do anything I need or want to do that BB doesn't do just fine, it has no real keyboard, and I don't really care about looking someone else's idea of cool (or like part of the herd).

I've left Blackberry a couple of times but always seem to come back. Windows OS is certainly better than Android (in my opinion) and that's who I'd go with if I was to leave. Never tried an iPhone for more than a few minutes. I'd like to try one for a few days and see how I get on.
Qwerty keyboard keeps me on my 9900, as well as BBM (as six family members are also on it) and apps like Twitter and Facebook, which I think might be the best of all the platforms for reliable notifications and ease of use. Blackberry 7 isn't great as an OS as I don't think it runs very well in terms of smoothness. Still seeing hourglasses all over the place and it bugs me.
Boy I went on a bit there

The iPhone does nothing I want or need that my Blackberry does not do.
I have zero interest in touchscreen only devices and that includes QNX touch screen only devices. As long as Rim makes the full physical qwerty form factor phones I am staying with BB.

It looks like the answer is a resounding "No". I don't blame them.
If I had to make a list of my preferences, it would look something like Blackberry -> WebOS -> Windows Phone -> Dumb phone -> Android -> Mameo -> land line -> iPhoneThanked by:

I still have a year and a bit left in my contract with a carrier that has a limited selection of phones outside of BB and iPhone so my options will be somewhat limited unless they do something radical like get Samsung Galaxy IIs or Windows 8 is amazing from day 1 and they carry one of their phones.
If I had to buy today...definitely some soul searching would be happening. Not as much as a slam dunk as it would have been a few months ago. That's not because the iPhone got much better or world beating either...
