Guys, why am i getting flamed? I listed the reasons of why i didnt like the iphone and you are bashing me. I SIMPLY DIDNT LIKE IT. I didnt come to the forum claiming i hate iphone since i do know it is an iphone related forum, so this reaction is typical, but I was asked why I returned the iphone in the post above me
i simply answered.
Why did you return it? that really weird you didn't have to return the accessories LOL now you can sell them and make back the restocking fee.
did i do anything wrong by voicing my opinion?
Yes blackberry has its ups and downs, but everytime I see an argument against blackberry users, iphone users seem so fierce like theyre defending their mothers. Its just a phone. I dont like iphone, i prefer blackberry, deal with it and dont try to convince me otherwise.
I know all about the novelty factor that is present with all new devices. BUT, I can say that with light, medium, or heavy useage on my blackberry, I know ill come home and have a little bit of juice left so my phone doesnt die on me. On the iphone however, yes i gave it a chance. I had it on one day without doing anything besides the "regular" functions, gathering email from 2 accounts, some texting, a short phone call and browsing the web for 10 minutes. After 10 hours the battery was at 10%. Dont like it. I took my blackberry off the charger this morning at 9AM, it is 9PM and I am at 50%. I listened to music, browsed the web heavily, texted a lot, used IMing programs, etc. The difference is vast. Just another reason i pick blackberry over iphone.
as far as the battery goes... it's a new "toy" and what do we do with new toys??
you play with them, A LOT!!!
of course the battery is going to go fast but after time you will slow down and learn when to and when not to incur heavy usage.
And going back to it being a "toy". Yes the iphone is a toy. There are more apps which create fart noises, or "help the mouse escape" than there are productivity apps. Yes, the iphone can be used as a business tool, which in my opinion, is worse than a blackberry for anyway, but it is more of an entertainment device.
Please, do not reply my reply about the iphone any longer. Anyone doing so just shows how immature you are, and you will not convince me that the iphone is worth a shot because in fact i just returned one.
On a side note, I am quite shocked now that i think back to my incident with the return of the device. I am not even the account holder! Every time one makes changes to an account, he/she is supposed to provide the name of the account holder along with ID. The man at the store asked the name, i told him, and he asked for ID where i told him i wasnt that person, and yet he continued to go on with what i wanted to do. Kind of funny if u ask me because he couldve lost his job if the rightful account owner called AT&T today and told them they didnt authorize the return of the iphone.
