    So I've been on the Blackberry for about 1 1/2 years now and I think I'm starting to feel sick of it and want to change to the iPhone 4.

    I have about 8 months left on my current Blackberry plan, I pay 30 but can downgrade to 20 before making the cancellation and paying off the plan.

    I think I am getting pretty desperate at the moment because I don't mind paying off about 160 to swap to the iPhone (and my mum has agreed and she even said yes that I should do it LOL).

    ...and then 2 days ago I had this thought 'am I ready to let go of push email' and I DON'T KNOW :P

    So I'm stuck in a rut but I seriously can't see myself using a Blackberry for the rest of my life :P

    that's one of those decisions that, given the money, your situation, and your wants, that only you can make.

    Why would you need to let go of push email?

    Any friends with a new iphone4 and an unused iphone 3GS you could borrow for a couple weeks? I don't know about on Orange, but here in the states on AT&T it's very easy to switch from a Blackberry to an iphone if you want to try it out before making a commitment to a new subsidized phone.

    I thought the iPhone doesn't really have proper push email?

    I don't think Orange do things like AT&T :S

    It may depend on which mail service you use; my work email via Exchange Activesync often shows up on my iphone before it does in Outlook. If I set up Gmail as an Exchange account (Google has directions) it also works as push. I don't use other email services.

    O2 doesn't let you move a SIM from one phone to another and call them up to change data plans around? Thats how I switched from my BB9700 to the iphone 3GS I bought used.

    I'm on Orange at the moment so I don't think I can switch it like that. But I do want to change to O2.
