The iPhone has a real keyboard. Otherwise you couldn't type on it. It just doesn't have a keyboard with push buttons. It's still a real keyboard. I wish people would make this distinction. Or is it just me?
That's like saying a hybrid car isn't a real car.

There are about 20 people at my work who have had BBs and I know of at least 4 that have had keyboard failures and several others who have buttons that stick or don't work as well as they did. Buttons will wear out if they get used enough.....it's all moving parts. Maybe it's the design of the model they have.

I'm very good with both, but it seems like a type out emails and such faster with the iphone. maybe its because i had a lot of experience using touchscreens on verizon before switching to a blackberry and then back to an iphone... but i would like to see some sort of vibration feedback when you hit a "button" like the LG Dare and LG Vu.

Two main reasons.
1. When rotated to landscape, for me the iPhone keyboard works great and I can type fast.
2. Here's a big reason. When I had Treos, as great as the keyboards were, I invariably had a key or two wear out over time. Like the "P" key would stick or not work right. I like the iPhone because you never break a key. There are no keys, it's just flat glass. Love this feature. No moving keyboard parts means fewer keyboard hardware problems. This is a big plus.

at least that's how i was for a little while but now i cannot imagine going back.
i tried typing on my old blackberry the other day and its was odd.
just give it more time and you'll find that it really is easier and will make less mistakes than when you first started.

Hmmm, my iPhone does Exchange with Google just fine. I believe it's an ongoing myth that no other cell phone can handle email like the Blackberry. Btw, does it cost extra to set up Blackberry mail to push to your Blackberry? When I had mine, it was an extra fee every month to have your email pushed to it.

Also, with the Blackberry, all emails, regardless of what account it is (ie. Yahoo, Gmail, hotmail, aol, etc.), are instantly pushed to one unified Inbox, and I find that really efficient because you don't have to cycle from account to account to see what's in there, because it all goes into one Inbox in the Blackberry where you can quickly look at an email and reply to it from the account it came into. It's just faster. I'm not trying to bash the iPhone, it is really just my personal experience. I have both the iPhone and a Curve 8900, and the Blackberry is much more reliable when it comes to email and it is faster at it too. They have this part down.

Again, I think iPhone is better in pretty much every other area, but BB has email down pat.

Well, I only have one primary email, which is yahoo. I use a hotmail, or Windows Live email, for my school. I wish Live would let you set up an imap account or something. Other than that, I'm strictly gmail. Plus, I think having a contraption with a screen as big as the iPhone is a pretty trade off for the email thing, which I happen to not agree with as being not as good as a blackberry.

I've used the iPhone with Googl (mail) Exchange e-mail, and MobileMe as well as private IMAP accounts.
E-mail works fantastic. Push works great. I'd say it works as well or better than Chattermail on my Treo, and that's saying something.

I love how you have everything at one place, easily accessible, be it music, mail, phone, games, and pretty much apps for anything you could possibly wish to use the device for
If they only up the battery time while also making it able to use background processes (without jailbreaking, that is) there would be no chance I'd ever change to something else. (Though I guess I wouldn't mind being proven wrong, as it would have to be something really awesome!)
