What can a BB do that iPhone and/or Android cannot?
After seeing this quote by guerllamo7 from another thread:
The solution? Just show your BlackBerry when people are talking about phones and if they ask show them a few things it can do that no iPhone will ever do. Hopefully some people will "Wake Up" and use their heads.

1. Bridge to playbook
2. Keyboard shortcuts
3. Replace battery
4. Multitasking. This might sound silly but I was helping a friend move, plugged my phone into the stereo with BB traffic voice navigation and bbmm playing and he goes " you have both things going at once?"
5. NOC compression and transmission.
6. Drop it and forget you did
Running low on time here....

1. Reliable email
2. Firewall security for blocking inbound text messages, email, BBM, etc.
3. Sound profiles
4. Email format - the ability to delete on device and keep mail on main server
5. Message & missed calls repeating alerts (LED & Audible)
6. Activity log of all events under each contact
7. Ability to assign different audible notifiers to each email account
9. Auto text reflow on emails
10. No annoying audible notifications while on a call - my iPhone
11. No annoying "press to dismiss message" after ending a phone call when a message
arrived during a call - my iPhone
13. System wide control of font sizes
14. Blackberry Bridge With Playbook
15. Auto power off and power on

*U can pull ur BB battery out without sending it to Waterloo.
*U can install custom themes without rooting or jailbreajking your BB.
*Rooting? BB? Jailbreak? It doesn't make sense, right? Security is at par.
*you don't need an app to do the utterly most basic things. Uploading a pic via ur iphone, anyone? (Hence instagram, I suppose)
*conversation on BB won't end up on Damn You Auto Correct! - Funny iPhone Fails and Autocorrect Horror Stories

but it is getting more illegal in more places consistently, though it doesn't mean it doesn't happen.
Technically in Ontario you can be fined opening a coffee whilst driving,
as for Things a BlackBerry Can do vs an iPhone.
REALLY The Best features you can't show.
Data compression allowing the smart user to buy the proper data plan for usage to save costs rather than an umbrella plan as just in case.
LEARN the short cuts, there are 100's of short cuts using the keyboard, take the time to learn them, you can show your 1 handed navigation through an inbox with 500+ emails is easy and fast, that isn't the case on any touchscreen device, even the 9850/60.
Set up Auotext(Word substitution) for your frequently used words, phrases, that counter acts the SWYPE keyboard typing speed they may show off.
Install BerryBuzz and set custom LED notifications! that is something an iPhone user can only dream of, and only some Android users can take advantage of.
Removable storage would be another Pro BlackBerry vs iPhone

Keyboard shortcuts. Was that mentioned.
Mark all read
Native password keeper (that doesn't use cloud)
Native file explorer
Having to check every email on my Android to delete was a pain.
On my Android you could press and hold for recent apps but not running apps. I found this to be a con.
My Thynderbolt didn't have a native password keeper nor file manager. It may have been added by now, not sure
I wouldn't get an iPhone because it doesn't have an LED. Small but. Important to me.

I'm always kinda amazed by these threads and how many are just unaware of what the iphone can do. It doesn't matter how many times you tell them something,....they'll just ignore you and regurgitate the same "facts" in the next thread that comes along.
Also amazed at how many people still think of truncated email as an advantage.

For example it can't download and upload in the browser. I just downloaded the Ask Rim Q&A MP3 file this morning, how would you go about doing that on an iphone? Answer me that.
PS the truncation is a huge advantage for people on a limited data plan or for people that travel abroad a lot.

I'm not sure if this thread is troll bait, but consider me with a hook in my mouth..
Again, personal experience, but the 9930 I noticed had a big learning curve for 1 handed blind texting.
I mean look at the PlayBook's battery vs. the iPad. Not even close...
