    First off im kinda new to the blackberry world. I got my first blackberry back in june of 07 and I've gotten pretty used to the one handed uses of the phone. with quick and easy access to my email. well i wanted more out of a phone so I got the tilt...

    I saw the tilt as a pocket pc and not just a phone with email and internet. Soon after getting the tilt i soon realized that it way different than expected. first off the phone comes with a bunch of bs programs I don't need. which im fine with because i can work around that, I was glad to install opera mobile and the mobile firefox.

    I then went out and bought a sling box solo because i have been in love with this product since i heard about it. Guess what it worked great until I hit one of the nonsense buttons on the outside of the tilt. I'd end up changing channel or closing the program out of nowhere. I still love the sling box even after all that.

    The Email....
    It might just be me but the email sucks with the tilt. First off i can't figure out how to have more than one hotmail email address pushed to my phone. also it doesn't update as quickly as my Blackberry. Another problem is that the interface makes it a pain to read them, sometime i would rather wait then pull out my styles and tap to email using the touchscreen.

    Another HORRIBLE Problem in the battery life, i got 8 hours max with little internet time.

    I say stay with the blackberry and wait till they update!!

    My wife has the Tilt. I'm not too crazy about it. I would rather her use my spare 8820 and kick the Tilt to the curb.

    I too had high hopes for the Tilt.I had a love hate relationship with it. It was my first PDA style phone. While I loved many of the fancy features, it was just so quirky trying to do basic things. 1 week into the experience, I decided to try an 8830 as a parallel test for the remaining 30 day trial - essentially I carried 2 phones and split my time between the 2 of them. It was supposed to be a 23 day comparison. Well, the Tilt got returned 3 days into it. Frankly, there are just to many issues for me too write it all out. I am a Windows platform software developer, I really wanted to love the Tilt. It's just not ready for prime time.
