    After seeing this quote by guerllamo7 from another thread:

    The solution? Just show your BlackBerry when people are talking about phones and if they ask show them a few things it can do that no iPhone will ever do. Hopefully some people will "Wake Up" and use their heads.
    I'm fascinated to know what these might be. Can anyone enlighten me, as I constantly have this BB bashing to contend with? Thought it an interesting enough subject to highlight it, rather than lose it at the bottom of another thread.

    Reliable push email, clear communications, brilliant PIM, bridging to the PlayBook. The big bonus being there is no apple on it.

    *U can pull ur BB battery out without sending it to Waterloo.
    *U can install custom themes without rooting or jailbreajking your BB.
    *Rooting? BB? Jailbreak? It doesn't make sense, right? Security is at par.
    *you don't need an app to do the utterly most basic things. Uploading a pic via ur iphone, anyone? (Hence instagram, I suppose)

    Not everywhere it isn't

    but it is getting more illegal in more places consistently, though it doesn't mean it doesn't happen.
    Technically in Ontario you can be fined opening a coffee whilst driving,


    as for Things a BlackBerry Can do vs an iPhone.
    REALLY The Best features you can't show.
    Data compression allowing the smart user to buy the proper data plan for usage to save costs rather than an umbrella plan as just in case.

    LEARN the short cuts, there are 100's of short cuts using the keyboard, take the time to learn them, you can show your 1 handed navigation through an inbox with 500+ emails is easy and fast, that isn't the case on any touchscreen device, even the 9850/60.

    Set up Auotext(Word substitution) for your frequently used words, phrases, that counter acts the SWYPE keyboard typing speed they may show off.

    Install BerryBuzz and set custom LED notifications! that is something an iPhone user can only dream of, and only some Android users can take advantage of.

    Removable storage would be another Pro BlackBerry vs iPhone

    Keyboard shortcuts. Was that mentioned.

    Delete prior
    Mark all read
    App switcher
    Bedside mode
    Native password keeper (that doesn't use cloud)
    Native file explorer
    Having to check every email on my Android to delete was a pain.

    On my Android you could press and hold for recent apps but not running apps. I found this to be a con.

    My Thynderbolt didn't have a native password keeper nor file manager. It may have been added by now, not sure

    I wouldn't get an iPhone because it doesn't have an LED. Small but. Important to me.

    I'm always kinda amazed by these threads and how many are just unaware of what the iphone can do. It doesn't matter how many times you tell them something,....they'll just ignore you and regurgitate the same "facts" in the next thread that comes along.


    Also amazed at how many people still think of truncated email as an advantage.

    This is not about what the iphone can do, it's about it can't do.

    For example it can't download and upload in the browser. I just downloaded the Ask Rim Q&A MP3 file this morning, how would you go about doing that on an iphone? Answer me that.

    PS the truncation is a huge advantage for people on a limited data plan or for people that travel abroad a lot.

    I'm not sure if this thread is troll bait, but consider me with a hook in my mouth..

    Typing one handed while driving.....
    Suprisingly, I've found typing one handed on an iPhone easier than my experience with the 9930. I can type blind with the iPhone keyboard, and any errors usually get corrected since I've been using the keyboard so much and it learned my vocab.

    Again, personal experience, but the 9930 I noticed had a big learning curve for 1 handed blind texting.

    Not get interupted by messages while playing games.
    This stopped last year with iOS 5. Actually, the way they do messages now is really useful and efficient. When doing something, it appears as a banner on the top and you get to see the first line of the message, whether it be an email, text, iMessage, etc...
    I would like to say its Battery life is amazing. Overall, the BlackBerry provides the most optimal power consumption for the business user.
    I'm not sure you can say that Blackberry has a distinct advantage after some of the horror stories from the 99xx series I've heard. In my experience, my iphone 4's battery was much more reliable than my 9930. Again, my experience, but I think the gap is closing in the battery war.

    I mean look at the PlayBook's battery vs. the iPad. Not even close...

    Install BerryBuzz and set custom LED notifications! that is something an iPhone user can only dream of, and only some Android users can take advantage of.
    I agree, I really wish we had a system like that.

    Removable storage would be another Pro BlackBerry vs iPhone
    A feature that may not be as useful in the future with cloud data storage.
