    If it were purely a carrier issue, then why the firmware updates to improve 3g connectivity and reduce dropped calls?

    iPod + Phone
    iPhone

    Pick one.

    I told an iPhone lover earlier today that the 3G is "the greatest iPod that Apple ever made". As a multimedia device with phone capabilities, it's untouchable. The closest thing might be a PSP and the size difference makes it about as close as an intentional walk. Apple blended form with theory near perfectly and will not be touched in mobile multimedia capability any time soon. Even if someone releases a device with greater hardware capabilities things like CoverFlow, Mobile Safari, autocorrection will keep it on top long enough for Apple to update the hardware to match and surpass.

    But as a communications device, the iPhone 3G is not on top. In terms of communications, any 'berry beats it. Curve, Pearl, Bold and even the Storm handle communications better. Provide more ways to keep people in touch with their lives and the people in it natively. And do so more reliably and securely.

    Now I'm sure someone will chime in about how having to pull their battery 2 times a day and watching their Storm reset randomly. But while I dunno what's causing their phone to do that, I know most Storms aren't acting like that at all. There's a post in the Beta OS subforum where people posted uptimes well past a couple days and pushing close to a week with 20+ mb application memory free.

    And enough with the stupid MMS and camera BS. WHEN I can get the Storm to take a pic, I really can't tell a difference in picture quality between the two devices, we are talking a messily 1.2 MP delta. Neither are DSLRs nor do I expect them to be. I PERSONALLY don't have a need for video, which is a good thing since the my Storm at least with .75 will not record videos without errors. Solid! If video is a vital feature, then get a device that supports it and knock yourself out.

    You can call MMS and video stupid if you want to make it sound like its not a big deal but there are plenty of people who use MMS for many different reasons (new baby in the family can send picture to every family member anywhere, prove someone wrong with visual evidence, etc.). and you can try to downplay a "messily 1.2mp", as you say, but the fact of the matter is it does make a difference and with digital cameras that difference can be anywhere from $50-100. You cannot tell me they would charge that much more for 1.2mp if it didn't make a difference.

    And this shouldn't matter to you if personally you don't use video or MMS but a whole lot of people do and it does matter. And the iphone definitely lacks these features. So you can dismiss these facts all you want but in other peoples eyes these facts cannot be ignored.

    and by the way i downgraded from .103 to .75 and my video works perfectly fine so thanks i think i will knock myself out and record some videos right now. im sorry you cannot do the same with your iphone.

    Not true, the iPhone has much better OWA access, the blackberry requires the expensive BES server to sync calender and contacts, the iPhone does it "natively". In terms of security the iPhone has great VPN capabilities that are simply not available on the BB, plus the same remote wipe functionality, again without the need for BES. The storm does do Google talk better, and why not just send a picture in an email instead of MMS, no big deal?

    Can't argue. There's gotta be a reason why so many professionals carry BlackBerries and not iPhones. (Although I suspect this will probably change a little bit)

    There are a lot of people, like me before switching to the storm, who do not have email on their phone. But almost everyone, unless using an iphone, have MMS. Even extremely old flip phones.

    Email is better, don't have to pay $.20 to send a text, plus who is using a phone without email, if you are you need to get with 2004. I guess Jitterbug users would be left out in the cold, but who cares.

    Unfortunately, I agree with the Poster.

    I kept my Storm Just for Novelty's Sake.

    You can say email is better but i prefer MMS. I have never paid $.20 to send a text or MMS. And if anyone has to spend $.20 i recommend doing it in an email instead of MMS. Fotunately with the storm we have the choice.

    Um who has to pay for mms? Its part of the msg plan. Sending an mms is much quicker when sending to devices without push email.
