    Not sure if anyone else saw this, but it's a story I've heard many times. Blackberry to iPhone and back to Blackberry.

    I will never understand why BlackBerry users revel in anything that
    disparages another device or platform.

    Does stuff like this somehow validate your choice, settle some
    insecurity or give you all a reason to think your phones are
    superior?

    They aren't. They are just different and designed for users
    with different requirements. Nothing more, nothing less.

    I just think we all take pride over what device we have chosen to stay with for the next 2 years

    Now, Let me ask you a question.
    After all of that, do you now feel superior?
    Maybe you've settled your insecurities

    Surely, they are "rivals" so-to-speak.
    Sort of like rooting for the home team, no?

    Not at all. Neither of my phones makes me feel superior to someone using
    something else. I have what works for me. Others have what works for them.

    Or in other words, nice try. I'm just asking why so many BB users can't seem
    to rise above the "iPhone is crap and must be constantly derided" mentality.

    I don't see any other phone or platform as a rival. I use what works for me
    and don't spend time slagging people who choose to use something else.
    Why that wasn't obvious in my original post speaks more to your mindset
    than it does mine.

    lol.. You are one in a million eh?
    Truth be told AG, they are rivals.
    Maybe not to your high intellect
    But market wise, they are.

    So, Back to my original statement
    It's our home team, Go Go Go!

    What kind of insecurities must one have when their phone device helps them develop pride?

    Sometimes Blackberry guy begins to get just as annoying as iPhone guy. I don't really slam the iPhone as a device because I think it's a pretty damn good device. But iPhone guy has this sort of "swagger" to him that I don't understand.

    And what's worse is that it sways the minds of Blackberry users to act in the same way.

    Notice that people who truly know about smartphones do not slam the other devices they choose not to use. The best examples for this thread are Howard Stern and/or Jim Rome.

    I'm not into the "Look who has a Blackberry" thing. But in all seriousness Howard decided on a certain brand of phone and didn't slam the other devices.

    Same goes for Jim Rome. I've listened to Jim Rome praise the Blacckberry for 10 years. Not once have I heard him slam other devices.

    Why must this be typical of Blackberry users now?

    I know what mind-set you both are speaking of.
    But, it's like for me to say i'm a Chevrolet guy.
    So of coarse, I'm going to be on that side of the field

    No fault in giving others credit when credit is due.

    But, into baseball at all? Football maybe? Whats your favorite team?

    Not trying to spark a heated debate here, everybody is allowed their own opinion.
    But if you don't see it "one way" no need to spill it over into everybody else' hands.

    I'm sorry but comparing this to the sports rivalries or automobile rivalries are terrible analogies.

    Wrong again

    Smartphone Market Share By OS


    Symbian: 47%
    BlackBerry: 20%
    iPhone: 11%

    9% market share pretty much removes the rivalry argument.

    Calm down, Dr. Phil...... Didn't mean to push a "no-no" button..... But come on, its common knowledge Berrys ARE superior. But thanks for the input.
