I found an app to address my notifications for work pager issue, so I am quite happy now.

Why I am switching
I will be making the switch to the iphone4 after for the following reasons:
1. The camera
Bold: 2.0 MP
iPhone 4: 5.0 MP
Bold: 1 GB
iPhone4: 16 GB or 32 GB
I can only install about 5 apps on my blackberry before it slows down and tells me I need to delete apps.
I cannot stand how RIM has failed to develop a competent and nice web browser.

Hello all! new to the forums. I'll be moving from a Verizon BB storm 1 over to the iphone 4 in october when my contract finally expires. unless by some weird miracle verizon does a policy change and I can "opt out" and not have to pay my ETL fee.
dont get me wrong i've been very satisfied with my Blackberry, but like many of you, I feel that Apple is headed in the direction of the future, where as RIM is staying stagnant, not offering what I am going to want down the road at all.

Well I got my iPhone but I honestly miss my Bold 9700 I miss the battery life because I could use that sucker all day for 15+ hours and still have 50-60% battery life.
I also miss BBM alot and the instant e-mails I don't know if I can get over it but I'll try. The browser thing doesn't really phase me because that's what computers are for. E-mails are nice though just wish it was instant. It just seems the BB was the more useful device and the iPhone is more dazzling to look at. I will probably hold on to iPhone for a lil while and then pick up the Bold 9800 when its released that should fix the browser thing and I'll have all that functionality I miss back.

I have a curve that i use everyday for work and it does one thing better...and that is letting me know an email is sitting in the inbox without me having to go look for it...that's it. As far as a useful device, i dont know how people actually use blackberrys for anything other than getting emails...they're almost useless with internet and the apps are...ahem...laughable to say the least.
No offense, but that comment about the iPhone was absurd.

Had several BBs, then a Nokia E71 that was a beast of a phone, then a Bold 9700, then a 3GS, then iP4, then Captivate, then Bold 9800, then back to the iP4. Outside of BBM, I will miss absolutely nothing about the BB infrastructure. I have a small side business and it was a pain in the rear to view pics or websites or run the admin console for sites I own if I am not at a computer...
The gap between iOS and Blackberry is not as big as we think and it will be a matter of personal choice. I am not a big fan of Apple but I do like the iP4 and makes me want to continue using the iPhone series for a long time.

Switching from Blackberry Storm 9500 to iPhone 4.
I have switched from BB 9500 to iPhone 4. I knew this day would come. In fact, when I initial purchased my BlackBerry storm, I informed my supplier that I was not prepared to commit to the BlackBerry service for an extended time period. I did that because I knew that at 1 point or an additional, I would be creating the transition to iPhone. Nevertheless, the initial iPhone to come out after I started using the storm was the 3Gs. As impressive as that additional speed was, I was not going to give up on the BlackBerry email experience for a little much more processing power. So, I waited.
Then came the iPhone 4 and I now plan on ending my long lasting relationship with my BlackBerry. Nevertheless, before I break up with my storm, I will say to it “It’s not you, it’s me”. I loved the storm, no scratch that, I really like the storm. Nevertheless, it has one too numerous shortcomings for a heavy user like myself and with the new iPhone out, I see no reason to stick this out.

*In no particular order.... I've had every generation iPhone except the original. Blackberry 7290, 7100i, Curve 8300, Pearl 8100, Bold 9000. Nokia E71x (big mistake), HTC (Cingular) 8125, HTC (T-Mobile) Dash, HTC Aria, and plenty of "dumb" phones. The recurring theme is, I kept coming back to iPhone. Now that I have the 4, no more straying. I'm here to stay.*

I'm brand new in here, in fact I came here via the link from CrackBerry.com
I have just taken receipt of my very first iPhone (iPhone 4) having had a BlackBerry 9500 Storm for the last 2 years on Vodafone UK (was tied to a 2 year deal).
It's been a love/hate relationship really. I loved my Storm out of the box..! I loved how easy eMails were handled, and integration with Outlook was fab. I had some great apps on it too (some I've found for my iPhone as well already)
I hated the UI and eventually installed a theme to mimic the Leopard OS from the Mac which improved my user experience 10,000%. I hated having to pull the battery every day to keep it running. Lastly I hated that it just got more and more "buggy" and needed unofficial OS leaks to make it work anything like it should have from the box. Looked at the latest BB (Torch) but just didn't take to it.
In the end, the unit just became too sluggish and crashed too often for me to persivere. I jumped carrier to Orange UK, and picked up an iPhone 4 for the same deal as I was previously on and suddenly I have a unit that does EVERYTHING it promised to be!
Really sad to see the BB go in some ways, but excited with my iPhone 4 too.
All in CrackBerry were a fantastic bunch, and I hope that this will be a similar experience in TiPB..!
