    it is time for an upgrade on my contract and I am in a pickle. iPhone 3G or Bold? i know you guys all probably think Bold (i prefer that device as well) but its the price that makes this hard. i could upgrade to the iPhone and download 3.0 for $99 or spend $300 and wait for a $100 rebate many weeks later. just so you guys know i LOVE the bold but i just dont have $300! Anybody else in the same situation???? i love touch screen phones but hate typing on them. i love the Bold's keyboard and the speed of its processor and everything else. but still undecided...

    To me, if you're mainly interested in a fancy browser, then the iPhone is the way to go.

    Otherwise, BOLD, baby!

    If money is the issue, since you mentioned the pricing, go for the iPhone. If
    you can't stand fancy touchscreens, as you mentioned, then go for the Bold.

    Go with the Bold. It's worth the money.

    I think it's been summed up above. If browsing is the absolute most important thing to you, then maybe an iphone is a good fit. If you have problems typing on a touchscreen keyboard (no tactile feedback) and do any decent amount of emailing/texting, then the iphone will probably be somewhat of a disappointment. Plus, you wouldn't be allowed to hang out here with the cool kids on crackberry.

    Thanks for all the responses! I do a BUNCH of emailing but I also do a BUNCH of browsing. So it makes it hard. I guess I just have to pick my battles. Thanks again guys. Still have some thinking to do...

    Whatever it is, it will be better than the Blackjack you currently have.

    I found that with the specialized apps, I browse much less than before. My concerns were the same, so I'm glad I didn;t go with the iPhone.

    I have a bold and LOVE IT TO DEATH... and i did have an iPhone for about 2 weeks (just couldnt live with all the things it didnt have.. IE MMS, Copy Paste, No ability to send contact cards) But the new firmware (3.0) fixes a lot of that. However, i just LOVE BB's. There are a lot of "cool" phones out there, but they just arent the same!
    If you want a bold, but the price just isnt right, check out other websites that let you use your upgrade. the crackberry store has it for $149 with a contact extension!!

    Keep battery life in mind too. The 3G has a pretty poor battery life, that they improved on w/3GS. I prefer the ability to upgrade my battery and memory. .
    MMS still does not work on the Iphone also.
