Wait that was on me lol. Luckily, I haven't had the need to call 911 in a few days...I mean years. It pained me to see that happen. But I will say this about the iPhone...boot time is a dream compared to my BlackBerries I've had. What if my phone froze up on me and I had to do a hard reset/battery pull. I wouldn't want to wait 7 minutes compared to my 30 second boot time.
So anyways, touche Duvi

A little on my smartphone history, all on Verizon. I started with a HTC 6700, moved into a 6800 both Windows phones. Then I got a BB Storm 1, I got lucky and mine worked fine, only had to replace it once because my send and end keys quick clicking. On the storm 1 those keys weren't integrated into the screen yet. I then upgraded to a Storm 2 at launch, the first one had a crooked screen that dipped in one corner, so I had it replaced and the second one was perfect and the one I had til I got my iPhone 4.
With that out of the way, I love the fact I have a working browser! I know its been said, but if you never had a BB you just don't understand, lol. Safari is OK, but what I really love is Skyfire. I was on the beta for windows phones, but it hasn't (has been rumored to be in the works for BB) been released, even a beta for BB. Having a browser that plays flash is just sweet. I watch South Park on my breaks at work. Pandora works much better. The Maps program is better than google maps on BB and the GPS connects much much faster. As far as Media, the iPhone just blows BB away. I know there's more I just can't think of off of the top of my head.
I do miss a few things. BBM for one. Anyone who's owned a BB and used it extensivly know's what I mean, and probably understands why I miss it. I'll get over it though. Another thing I miss is a status light. I don't like reminder tones, because there's time's I just can't get to my phone, again, I'll get over it. I saw someone mentioned meterberry, I personaly loved that app, but I like logging my memory and battery level, just to see how the phone acted under heavy use. I'm still tring to find an app for iPhone that does something similar.
Oh, and this is my first post, so, Hi! lol. And this device ROCKS!

I came from a DroidX and loved it so, that I'm still in my 45-day Best Buy window to take back and exchange. So far, I am starting to love my iPhone more. Granted, you can't geek out on the iPhone as much as with a rooted droidx, no matter if it's jailbroken or not. Having said that, that customization can lead to problems in a curiousity killed the cat sorta way. I love the fact that everything works, and works extremely well on the iPhone. I did a battery cycle (drained to less than 20 percent and a full charge) and the battery blows the droid battery away. The browser is better than anything I've seen on droid market, too. The app store, although android is growing, is ridiculous in a great way. Throw in the iPod feature and I think i'm going to be sold for a while on iPhone. Best way to describe it, it just works with all the bells and whistles.

It works. I swear that is my favorite thing about this phone. I have only had it a week, but I have yet to have an app "force close" or freeze up or not load....you get the point. I have run apps that I ran on my Droid and everyone of them at least runs as good, but most run better.
I also really enjoy having some of my iTunes library on the phone more than I thought I would. I use Pandora and Slacker too, but it's nice to have my music when I want it and in an organized, easy to access form.

I have to agree with "it works". I had a BB Storm2 that was a pile of crap. On the plus side, I didn't have to do too many battery pulls....since it did it on it's on every couple days or so.
One cool thing I like about my iP4 is AirPrint. I was very pleased to find out my new HP ColorLaser was AirPrint compatible.

the more I use my Iphone the more I love it it works period !
no running around trying to find the avenues to where you want to go or do.
I have to say I have an apple retail store close by so have played with them and even the first time I tried it I was able to navigate to where I wanted to go very easily.
I've never had a ipod before either and I love this feature as at work during lunch time can sit and listen to music and let the days work stuff melt away.
have I said I love my Iphone best thing i've done since getting married along long time ago!
hope you all enjoy it as much as I do

I've had the iPhone since 2/7 and I definitely miss my blackberry. The keyboard, the blinking LED and BBM. After having the browser and apps on the iPhone though, I can't go back. I think they're both great phones but the iPhone just does more. I wish blackberry would hurry up and catch up!
