    I miss the notifications, the way Blackberry handled answering calls with my Bluetooth devices. Maybe after a few years I will get used to the differences.

    I went for the basic black, but I came thisclose to getting the green. For the IPhone, I'm gonna swing a trade for my Note 4.

    Nice man awesome to hear. Once I left team blackberry for iPhones, I've been hooked. I'm actually planning on getting the space grey sport myself. Came wait until they are available in stores.

    I jumped off the Team BlackBerry bandwagon about a month ago and started with an iPhone 5C. It's hooked me! Now a whole new world of possibilities has opened up. Apple TV next for me, iPad and MacBook on the horizon, and I'm not ruling out the possibility of an  Watch in the future.

    Enjoy your new watch!

    You'll notice how not-tedious everything on the iPhone is compared to that crazy interface on the BB. I can't remember how I ever used a BB. I tried playing with a friend's a while ago and wow, it's so hard to navigate through what should be a simple menu system.

    Just a quick update, sold my Note 4 on Swappa for 500 and bought an iPhone 6 Plus 64 GB at the Apple Store. I got the unlocked one and I am using it on Verizon. I figured that would have the best resale value. . Nothing personal but I don't keep ANY phone long . 6S is right around the corner right? And plenty of other stuff. . OnePlus Two? Anyways loving the 6 Plus at the moment, BUT I still love my passport too. . I do miss the built in IR remote that the Note had, used to love going to public places and taking control of the lobby TV. . But over all I prefer the iPhone to the Note and truth be told I also preferred my OnePlus One to it. I still miss my OnePlus One!

    Still waiting on my watch. I'm a "Juner" as they say around here.

    Some things I LOVE, the screen for example, NOTHING beats that retina display, and of course the eco system, BUT there are a few things I have to get used too. For example I don't like the headphone jack placement. I would have preferred it at the top or on the side. Also I encountered a strange bug that causes siri to trigger when I use certain high end headphones, thus limiting the headphones I am able to use. Fortunately I found a good pair that does work. I'm also not happy about the email attachment situation, BUT I do most of my emailing on my passport anyways.

    Overall though I do really like it and I look forward to trying the watch on it!

    What is the email attachment situation? Have you tried the Outlook mail client?

    I don't miss anything, either, but I have a coworker (current iPhone user) that constantly laments about his past Blackberry.

    Rich, for the mail situation, I strongly recommend you try out myMail. It supports almost every mail provider and has full attachment support including the iOS8 Document Picker.

    I didn't really want to start the email debate. I AM aware of the fact that there are some 3rd party solution and I think that is great. I use photon for my flash needs in fact (I accept that flash is on the way out), BUT I would really prefer it that the native email support attachments AND I really love the hub. I KNOW I'm a minority opinion on that around here, but I for one would love to see the hub on iOS. Although as some have pointed out it probably would not work as well on iOS as it does on BB. After all these years why can't they simply add attachment support? Anyways it's not a deal breaker and as has been pointed out there ARE solutions.

    My point was there are a few little things I don't like. Heck there are things I don't like about BlackBerry. Don't get me started about that mess of a contacts app on BB10! It always annoys me when the fans on ANY side blindly defend, or won't see the good of the other side. I truly am platform agnostic!
