I feel ya remmy...disappointed with HP's new phones and inability to put webos 2.0 on original Sprint Pre. Activating my Iphone today and leaving Sprint...which I'm hating having to do but their phones suck and my Pre is dying a slow death.

I was a diehard BB advocate and it is still a good device for email, but the iPhone is a GREAT device for everything I need it for. Remmy, I left Sprint too after their latest $10 add on fee(I have 5 lines, so $50 more each month wasn't gonna work). If you are looking for a good deal on the iPhone, check out the AT&T Premier site. If you have a work or school email, chances are you qualify for a discount. I was able to get the iPhone 3GS for $19 and get 20% off my voice and data every month. They even have the iPhone 4 for $99. Like any other carrier, do your homework and make sure the coverage in your area is there. Good Luck!

I am joining you all after many years of resistance (I really am a MAC I just didn't want an iPhone) from a Pre and WebOS. I love WebOS but I am kind of frustrated with the way things are now with HP and after Sprint gave me a proverbial punch in the nose after my long years with them.
I am getting the ATT one as I can get a discount through them from work. This should be interesting!

I just think it's funny that many people talk about how great BB's are for email however if you compare them to an iPhone they're clearly second rate. If you're just judging by speed then yes, they're good for email but when it comes to actually reading the email ( the important part ) iPhone is superior. iPhone displays emails the way they're supposed to be, just as if you were viewing from a computer, try doing that on a BlackBerry.
I used BB for approx 4 years and just switched from a Storm 2 and I can't believe how much better the iPhone is. I was worried about not receiving emails as quick but that worry was gone the first day. I've sent test emails from my computer & received them on my iPhone within 5 seconds consistently.
Sorry, didn't mean to ramble on, just wanted to make a quick point.
