    I like the list. I prefer BB over the other platforms personally, why else would I be here, but if I switched I would have to seriously consider the iphone or the pre3. The thing I really don't like about the iphone is itunes and how locked down all the media is. I definitely am not an android fan though.

    I'm an Apple fan and I have several Mac products, but I struggled to like the iPhone and eventually gave it to my wife.
    Now after a year of asking to use my BB to make calls when she can't get thru on her iPhone, she's ready to switch back to BB. She has her eye on the 9900.

    This reminds me of something, I listen to a radio show every morning, it lasts for 1.5 hours and it's the kind of show where people phone in and have mostly political debates, sometimes two at the time.
    It amazes me the amount of dropped calls or poor quality calls during that short time. Almost every other call ends in failure.

    Please share with us the device/service that legally sells media (movies, TV shows) that isn't "locked down." Note that DRM-free music is available from several outlets, including Apple.

    I prefer to choose my vendors for the music or videos I rent or buy. I don't like being forced into an ecosystem because I use a certain product. Apple has never played well with others in my opinion and it almost killed them once. If you prefer what Apple offers then I think you have a lot of company so I wouldn't let my opinion bother you. I was surprised to see anyone saw anything worth responding to in my post until I saw who it was. Apple is a big boy, they can take care of themselves.

    Sounds like those people have ****ty service.

    I have not dropped one call on my VZW iPhone 4. On AT&T, yes. I blame AT&T, not the iPhone. My BBs dropped calls as well in full coverage areas. Have only dropped around 3 calls on VZW in the last year and a half.

    Maybe Apple needs to change the name of the device to "iPod Touch with Earpiece and Mic". I think phones are supposed to be able to make phone calls.

    I have no problems making phone calls. I guess I will still call my iPhone, "iPhone".

    Antennagate didn't happen for no reason, you must admit that.

    I'm not denying it, but it doesn't happen to everyone, and it is a non-issue if you are in good coverage.

    I live in excellent VZW coverage. You can put your hand on that spot all day and my bars wont go down. I also happen to live in excellent AT&T coverage. I can put the tip of my pinky finger on the AT&T iPhone 4 and the bars will drop right away and go to searching. IMO carriers make the difference.

    Could be the chipset used too. Verizon iPhone has a different radio chipset in it than the AT&T, or the one Jake would be using on Telus. Complaints of the GSM iPhone4's call issues aren't isolated or new. They also slightly modified the iP4 chassis for Verizon.

    Yea I know. They changed the Antenna design a little bit and changed the chipset. From experience, the call quality and signal strength on the VZW iPhone is much much better. Some people have reported the same problems with it, but I have not experienced it once anywhere with this device.

    The GSM one definitely has problems.

    CDMA is almost exclusive to North America, the rest of the world gets the problematic iphone 4.
    I also call 2 friends on androids and one on iphone 3GS, one on a cheaper one so you could forgive it but the other on a dual core one, the 3 of them sound like crap when I talk to them, distant and not very clear. When I call my wife on her Pearl 3G, it's crystal clear.

    The majority of my friends with smartphones have Androids phones now. They all sound perfectly fine when I talk to them. Most of them have devices from the Motorola Droid line, and all of the Moto Android devices are known to have great call quality. I have owned two of them and they sounded better than any BB I have ever owned. The CDMA iPhone 4 with the new chipset sounds better than all of them.

    Well, one is HTC and the other LG, I would expect good call quality from Motorola too. I must say I never called anybody with an iphone 4.

    I think it's funny that when an apple fan is going to complain about an apple product it is usually itunes. That's the one apple product I use on a daily basis and I can't find anything better. I'm sure there is something better for managing files, but for displaying on a large screen in the living room, nothing is better than itunes coverflow in full screen. Trust me. I've looked. That and if I want to use wifi media sync on my blackberry I'm limited to either itunes or windows media player which is borderline unusable I think.

    You didn't answer the question; where are the TV shows/movies that aren't "locked down"? "Vendors" isn't an answer.
