    Default Finally Switched to iPhone

    So I've been BlackBerry user ever since smart phones came out both for work and personal. However, I'm a huge Apple fan with respect to owning and upgrading several iPods, iPads, and MacBooks over the years. I was going to make the iPhone switch several years ago but AT&T service here was awful. Then Verizon got the iPhone and I gave it a chance but wasn't impressed. Well now with a better understanding of the cloud and iTunes Match I really wanted to give the iPhone another shot. I bought the 5s on launch day and haven't looked back. I can't complain about iOS 7 because I never really new the prior iOS's. BlackBerry still makes great phones and the new Q10 and Z10 are awesome, but I can finally say that I've made the switch to iPhone for personal device and am extremely happy with it!

    Thanks, very familiar with CrackBerry. Been a member and frequent poster for a while. Still plan to remain active cause work issued device is still BlackBerry. I'm under the same name.

    Thanks for warm welcome. So I really made the switch because it made sense. Have an iPod, iPad, and MacBook so with iCloud and iTunes Match it made sense. I also was with a bunch of friends who were using Airdrop and I was left out. So at first the switch wasn't something I was really looking forward to. Not to mention the BlackBerry 10 lineup is way underrated. The Z10 is amazing and in many ways outperforms the iPhone 5s but you need to see them side by side to understand. That said, iPhone is an amazing phone as well. To sum it up best, BlackBerry OS with Hub, Peak and Flow, and overall UI is just much smoother. However, the iPhone is amazing in its own right providing great capabilities with a much easier to use OS as in less steps to complete tasks. And anyone who says the fingerprint scanner is a gimmick is a loser, it's an awesome safety feature. So the real question is, if it wasn't for Apple product integration would I have switched? Not sure, but glad I did. Really dig the 5s.

    Do you like the UI? A lot of people say it is sickly, but I kind of like it. I think it gives a nice fresh face!!

    No offense to the OP, but never understood the whole "COMING OUT" I switched to brand "X" posts ...
    People are like: "HEY EVERYBODY I JUST SWITCHED TO BRAND X !!!
    I'm like:
    YAAAY! ...
    you bought a phone ...
    nice ...
    yeah...
    ( uncomfortable silence ) ...
    Not many people know this, but I happen to be quite famous ...

    That's not how, "No offense" works. Just because you preface a comment with "No offense" doesn't give the right to say offensive, immature things. Just stay off the thread. If I don't want offend someone, I'll be quiet. If I want to offend you, you'll know it. Hopefully you're ridiculous a$$ gets it. Additionally you're reference to "Coming Out" in and of itself is offensive. Seriously, you must be the Heir to the Massengil Thrown
