    Brilliant....

    People have iphones to have a phone AND and ipod in one device.

    This isnt exactly iphone related other than trying to tell people not to buy one and bash it. Please troll elsewhere

    Dude, seriously. You're giving the BB community a bad name. If they want an iPod that can make phone calls, then let them get one.

    You and I like our BBs and they like their iPhones. That's the reason why the two companies are there!

    it does not give any rep to any one .. how many people on here have both phones ..

    I simply don't care what you or anyone else says
    if you have a problem with me. get in touch
    I will set you straight. trust me.

    I have tested iphone 3GS thoroughly and know
    all parts and services it can offer. IMHO is not
    worth the hype.

    I really believe BB gives you more for the $

    - the reason I mentioned this in first place is
    the phone part is cheap and apple did not care
    about it very much. They gave customers the
    minimum - and focused on apps instead.

    I was thinking to avoid spending money on
    iphone, you can spend less on ipod and be
    done with having the apps to play with.

    If you already have a BB

    BB does NOT give you more for the money. RIM gives you the same old boring, outdated OS in a new package. That's all it is. BIS is TERRIBLE compared to what other smartphones come with out of the box. If you want the "best" security, than go for a BB.

    You have no cure for the iPhone. Believe it or not, people actually like the device. Just like people like their BBs.

    The phone part is not cheap. I get great service everywhere I go. I also get no dropped/failed calls. The call quality is also exceptionally well. I have been completely satisfied with the 3GS since I have got it, I had more problems with the 3G, but the 3GS fixed these issues.

    the phone part is cheap and crap .. make no mistake

    I am a mac user for the last 15 years .. this is not a mac / apple bash
    I know apple products very well and like them.

    iphone 3GS has a very low ear volume even at maximum ..
    I expect more from apple .. - I think maybe I have worded this
    all wrong ..

    I don't want anyone thinking I am anti apple .. its just that apple is a design
    company and well some details get left out in the process usually when
    they are making new things .. like iphone .. they get all excited at the
    fact that its doing well and get side tracked.

    the iphone is very limited in phone area compared to BB Bold
    sound quality alone is a big problem .. I actually tested this last night
    all night and took this to test and the new 3.0.1 update as well.

    apple as a whole is a excellent company .. I actually have been in contact
    with WOZ apple co founder at times over the years so .. chill back all

    - I guess I get protective about the average user getting the best experience
    for least amount of money. Just Instinct ...

    Blackberry happens to give you a lot of features within their OS which are pretty
    darn good. I like the Bold I have .. I have had 8310, 8900, 9000 Iphone 3GS, Ipod Touch

    maybe if any apple crew read this stuff they will write a patch for the phone part to
    improve the GUI and options available

    I can hear it now, who are you to judge how good it is or not .. well

    I have a lengthy track record with Mac products 15 years and Cell phones
    Black berry and Apple iphone and sony products as well as Samsung, not to mention
    I am Web Admin 10 years plus GUI designer and system administrator. I am not lacking
    in experience or knowledge..

    my interest here is the User experience - not my own happiness or not
    nor am I attempting to be holier than thou .. its as I mentioned :: USER EXPERIENCE and the Buck$



    BB OS was never intended for Media - but apple has raised the bar so they are fighting to upgrade it
    to be compatible with Media which I am not sure they will be able to do.. Since apple is a Experienced
    Software company and OS developer and well its going to be a up hill battle. I wish RIM all the best though
    as well as Apple.

    so how exactly will you set me straight?

    i'm not exacatly sure where you get the idea that the phone part is crap. if you have crappy service in your area, thats one thing. but to say that they are crappy phones is just uneducated, uninformed,

    Volume in the ear piece is low

    Sound from others is fine but always low but mic from main user

    While I do agree with your over-expressed opinion on the iphone I do think that the way you said it may **** people off. You must remember people on forums can get really touchy. Both the bb and iphone have qualities to envy over but I personally believe the bb is a better phone for more serious purposes and the iphone is better as a casual/avg. Consumer phone. Both dominate two different leagues. Whose better bulbasaur or squirtle.

    Why is it as of lately the BB users want to troll in here and bash the iphone. Insecurity because of a stagnant platform or what?

    Funny thing is people say how "arrogant" and "stereotypical" iphone users are, when we arent the ones starting any trouble or trolling bashing your devices....
    This guy's the first one in here that I've personally seen. You visit the Storm's R&R section and you'll find many times more anti-Storm, anti-BB, or anti-RIM trolls who have no qualms about interjecting on any thread (rant or rave) to bash on the BB device at-hand and advertise the iPhone.

    At least they're quarantined there...

    Truth is new technology will always have issues. The problem is the consumers of these companies tend to think like the creators. Apples consumers want a fun device(more power to them) and apple likes to think that they are perfect and never make mistakes hence how apple fanboys got the way the got. RIM users on the other hand are always thinking ahead into the future example: os leaks, major speculation buzz, picture leaks, video leaks. Just something I noticed don't flame me for it if you don't agree. Rim accepts their fck ups and apple doesn't....let's see who stands strong in the longrun. As we continue to complain about our phones RIM continues to fix the things we complain about am I not right?(app world, colorbanding, better surepress, better copy and paste, non-freezing media player etc.) apple on the other hand fixes things at their own time and doesn't admit to their being a problem. Who has the better mind set to last longer in the market? Ill let you decide. I don't feel like getting links right now to back up my claims.

    understand where your coming from. There just alot of mixed emotion with blackberry and iPhone because they are both running the phone market side by side, yet TWO completely different worlds. So this is a really unique VS because there will never fully be a whose better. That is because RIM and Apple are two really popular companies and have a distinct brand image compared to other phone companies. It is hard to compare whose better, Charmeleon or Warturtle. One is better at the water world, and the other is better at fire stuff. Warturtle cant compare to charmeleons fire abilies, and charmeleon cant compare to warturtles water abilities.

    Im sorry for bringing up pokemon. No I am not a little kid anymore but that doesnt mean I cant use them as an example.

    i kind of understand your post, BUT.....an os leak is not rim thinking ahead its somone taking something that isnt ready to be put out yet and using it. apple also has major specualtion buzz, heck just into its third phone and the hype was tremndous! picture leaks and video leaks are kinda the same, apple has them, but doesnt have such a huge variety of different phones, there isnt going to be as much coming out from them. and i agree and give rim credit for fixing the issues in their phones. but they do it on their time as well. look at the issue of not being able to store apps on a memory card and only the measly application memory they give you. apple is relativily new to the whole phone game. and considering that its surpassed some of the longstanding phone companys to me speaks a lot. think of where they will be in a few years as compared to where they are now.

    rim and apple are like ford and chevy. some are die hard lovers of each brand. and they can always find something wrong with the other. the truth of the matter is that both are perfectly fine in their own right, and it all comes down to choice.

    Yeah the storm has been called worse things than a toy. I mean this should all be open discussion. The only problems I had when it came to an iphone person saying negative things was when it became out of context and intentional to **** people off. I have not seen one comment that says the iphone is a POS.

    If RIM would develop a great all-in-one product than no one would need a choice.
