    Ok, to keep it brief, but to the point, I had two BB's years ago, the Curve 8320, and the Pearl 8120, and loved them. Then came the MyTouch 3G andthe MyTouch 3G Slide and I left BB for Android for just shy of a year. Enter the 9780 Bold, BlackBerry 6, and I was back home. Well over the last month or so, I have seen a lot of BB users switch to Android, and have been surrounded by these super phones with 4+ inch displays, and I was getting the itch again. So I dusted off the old MT3GS I had yesterday, fired it up, even had T-Mo switch my data plan.......for a whopping 6 hours before I was going through withdrawls. I was away from home yesterday, and left my Bold while I was gone, but as soon as I got home last night, I immediatly changed everything back to my trusty ol Bold 9780. I know nothing real prophetic in this post, just had to share....BB FTW!!!!

    heh, welcome back. I too had an "itch" that lasted 4 months. As far as the MT series and android goes, i am of the opinion that no matter how much you polish a turd, it's still a turd.

    I had a blackberry about a year ago and did the same thing. I switched to the samsung vibrant and went through withdrawals with in the first couple of days. I just switched back yesterday to blackberry and couldn't be happier! I don't know why i left in the first place.

    I played with all the iPhone & Android phones; its nice, but I will always be a dedicated BlackBerry user. Had my 9780 for a few weeks already because my 9700 broke, and already pursuing the 9900.

    The 9780 is my first BlackBerry, having had a Samsung Jet S8000 and then a S8500 before (first "smartphones" I bought) and I'm a happy VERY happy man It does all I wanted from a smartphone and lot more. That's the phone I wanted before getting the Samsung but I couldn't get BIS from my provider and so couldn't buy a BB
    I'm not a big fan of the 9900, I think its battery is way too small when you think of the hardware, I don't think the phone will last as long as my good 9780. And I'm not a fan anymore of touchscreens, they get dirty so fast, and I prefer a real keyboard. So far, I'm fine with the 9780, don't see any reason to drop it

    These are great stories. I've been a loyal BB user for over 4 years. Pearl-8830-Torch-Bold 9780. I can certainly see the temptation to stray, but I love the device and software. If you're tempted into trying iPhone, why not get an iPod Touch? You can get most of the same apps?

    I too am a loyal BlackBerry man. Here is a pic of my 7230, 8830, 9100, 8310 and my 9780. I had a 9700 but I was upgraded to the 9780 and had to send it in to T-Mobile. I cannot operate an android phone or an iPhone. They feel like toys to me. But then hey! Who am I?
