Okay, I just got an iPhone and have some questions
I wanted to see what the hip-hip-hooray was all about so I picked up an iToy. So I'm giving apple a shot, but some questions have come up right away. Why do I have to sift through hundreds of thousands of garbage apps to find a basic function like a consolidated messages box? And as I'm looking at this thing, I'm wondering where's the notification LED? Also, I'm finding that I can't make it through the day on a charge and would like to obtain a spare battery for the iPhone, but first I'd like to figure out how to open the thing to do a battery swap. Is there a quick and easy way? And what is this with the birds and the pigs??? So far, out-of-the-box experience -- not so good. If I can't get this thing up to the communication standards I'm accustomed to quickly, I'm returning it.

Ok having NEVER owned one of these I do know they don't have the LED function like our BBs unless they have come up with a new app and you can't swap the battery. They made those things where you shouldn't open them. I'd say can't but I'm sure someones broken em to get them open. People just carry around the power cords if it doesn't last.

If the OP owned an iPhone, which he doesn't, he would know that the consolidated mailbox is built right into the native mail app.
More ignorance debunked.

While I am looking forward to the next BBX phone, I have to say the only issues I have with my iPhone 4s is the lack of a notification LED...I have to wake the phone, swipe to unlock, and then check to see if my phone icon shows a missed call, or press the message icon for e-mail. That, and the delicate build quality, not build quality, which is superb and new techno-wave glass and aluminum, but the delicateness of the phone itself, which requires special handling if you don't want to scratch or break the front and back screens; which is very easy to do if one's not carefull.

Wow, I am actually kind of surprised Tonis would do this. Usually he just sticks to already created threads to bash anything Apple.
Could have used better bait though. Everyone knows you can't replace the battery or have the same type of LED notifications as a BB/Android.

The phone does feel both delicate and solid at the same time. But, so far so good. The non-notification issues don't bother me so much as I'm always proactively checking for new emails.

I've always enjoyed reading your posts because I find them to be well balanced, informative, written with thought behind them, and more importantly, they're thought provoking.

Hang out over at iMore. It's rare indeed to see posts about BB devices.
Many users cross pollinate the electronics. It's like saying you have two kids and because you might like one more you MUST hate the other.
Some might say that's an extreme example, but it's not when you think about it.
In my opinion these are object. I don't 'love' any of them. I wouldn't even use that world in this context.
The negative post here seem to be driven more by subconscious(maybe conscious) envy than anything else. Apple/BB/Android/MS could all go belly up tomorrow and as long as there's something to replace them the world will keep spinning.
Until Dec 21st that it is. That's when the movie says all h *lls gonna break loose...
