    I had a HTC hero for less than 24 hours. Not saying Android is crap but I hated that phone. I order a BB bold and have been waiting on it since the 10th of November. Someone finally admitted to me they were having stock issues. I am still on my storm and quite depressed I am hoping it gets here soon.

    Just curious what you like about the bb email over the iphone email? I have a bb using hosted BES and it is nice but I am thinking about getting an iphone. I've used a iPod touch with the exchange support and it seems to work well.

    mdg, if you have Exchange support, then the iPhone can support push email, but for consumer devices, only BlackBerry offers push email, and once you get used to it, it's a huge factor.

    The only problem for someone with an iPhone on Exchange is that the security on the iPhone isn't as high as on the BlackBerry, and if you hack your iPhone to use unofficial apps, then you should be aware that your iPhone can be at risk from hackers (and there are now several reported cases of such - the good news thus far being that the hackers have been providing iPhone users with info on how to lock their phone to prevent similar hacks in the future).

    Thanks - Now I remember why I bought my BB in the first place before I had exchange. And the security issue is a good heads up.
