    Really do not miss my BB at all any longer. The iphone just works. No hang ups. I love all it can do.

    What I wanted to post was about the misconception that an iphone is a toy, or not for business. I work in electronics, and last week was at an electronics show in Vegas with reps, manufactures, distributors. For some reason, I noticed everyone's phone. In years past, BB certainly had more users than others. Not this year, not from what I saw.

    The iPhone was used by more people than ever, both young and old. Didn't see too many androids, but they were there too. It was the iPhone that I saw most, that's for sure.

    9810 is way better than iphone imo. iphone just does not do anything for me. there are many who switch back from iphone to bb.

    I was in Vegas also last week. I honestly couldn't believe how many iPhones there were. Went there for a mini vacation. So many iPhones on the strip.

    How does making observations make you a sheep?

    Because the OP's post didn't include Apple hatred and him crawling back to BB.

    If having a browser that actually works, no freeze ups ever, the best screen resolution in the business, the best camera and access to tens of thousands of apps makes you a sheep, then all I have to say is-BAAA BAAA.

    If thats the case then why does CB have a dedicated section not only for iPhone users but for users of Android as well? Obviously the mods are trying to welcome EVERYONE to this site, which is more than I can say for some BB users.

    It's gotten to the point of "If you like your device and it's not a Blackberry, just get out."

    Tensions have risen over the past year. I've never seen the forums as hostile as they've recently become. Enthusiasts have gotten to the point of visiting the competing subforums to do this as well. Subforums used to be a place to discuss other platforms, pros and cons, etc. It's a shame.

    Sadly the only news about RIM lately is bad news. I made the mistake of posting 1 (one) such article and got all sort of crap for it, even from moderators. Nevermind it was a investment article opinion piece!...

    It doesn't really matter if you own and use blackberry, or how much you've contributed in the past, you're not welcome here unless blackberry is your exclusive device and you have zero complaints.

    Yeah. I actually didn't revisit the thread until after it had been closed, I was busy. Sadly I wasn't shocked by what I saw. Threats & personal attacks have become a way of life on CB. Doubtless I'll be warned for this post in this sub-forum.

    It was like this years ago over at howardforums. The nextel forum was the worst, every other carrier user came in just to bash nextel because they didn't have the 2 way radio on their phone. I am starting to post less here and more at imore. and gee they have a thread for blackberry users there. and you dont see apple users bashing them there

    Such the victim. All you do is post negative spin or opinion either your own or another's about BlackBerry on a Blackberry enthusiasts site. And now you're crying because people become agitated by that? Nice life.

    Not exactly sure what your reason for posting it is.... Not saying you should not.... but do not know the point..... IPhone are great phones... used one for a couple of years and swithed to BB...... Not because the Iphone was not any good... just found BB did things better for what I wanted......Never understand the need to pomote one device over another.... After all they are just phones.......

    So the mature behavior is to agitate a board dedicated to a product the members enjoy? You were taken to task because that behavior is so needy and immature. You were challenged for instigating conflict for attention. It is the only thread I ever saw you too "busy" to revisit. Enjoy your alternate reality.

    Did you read the article? It was an economic opinion piece. Something that was completely ignored by the RIMbeciles that destroyed the thread. No, it wasn't a puff piece, it was reality. If people can't accept that reality it isn't really my responsibility to coddle them. Again, Grow up.
