    Looking for responses from users that have used Android, particularly the EVO, and switched back to blackberry once the Bold 9930 came out. Is it worth switching back to blackberry? Pros/Cons?

    Came from a Galaxy S 1. Not exactly an evo but still Android. You'll miss the apps but the keyboard makes it worth the switch! Battery lasts longer than the s1 (maybe by about 3 hours only). But charging it is really fast. Takes me 4 hours to charge the s1 and just 1.5 to charge the 9930.

    Of course, the smaller screen will kill browsing for you since the Evo spoiled you. Would suggest keeping the evo for browsing/apps

    I came from the Tbolt. I do miss a lot of the apps, but the keyboard and the battery life made the transition much easier. I was only getting 3-4 hours from a full chage on my Tbolt. I can go a full day, even with pretty heavy use on my bb. You will miss the screen, but I think the pros far out weigh the cons. On the bb, you get real time email and a 100x better keyboard. Everyone is different though, you have to decide what's more important to you.

    I came from an Atrix.

    I love the keyboard. Call quality is great, great for texting and e-mail. I do miss the apps and large screen though.

    I still have the Atrix I'm going to give this phone a shot, sen dout my Atrix to get repaired and go from there.

    I've had g2x , captivate, vibrant , mytouch slide , htc hd 7 , nexus s , and I always go back to blackberry. But personally I don't use my phone for games so even having android I never really cared much for the apps. It's the end user experience that I'm more attracted to and android battery is just terrible comp to blackberrys. You can't beat the keyboard and simplicity that RIM offers. Also I had the 9930 and 9900 , which batterys lasted me 2 days but I did have a 9900 which wouldn't last me more than 10hrs which I found very strange, quick exchange and the new one would also last me 2 days!

    I switched from a thunderbolt and a droid 3. Have missed my BB keyboard like crazy. I've found that the only app I really miss is netflix. This keyboard is by far hands down the best. So glad to have it back. Loved the original 9000. So I am happy. And yes you will be able to use your Evo over wifi. No problem there.
