Things an ex-blackberry user should know
Hi, so I'm expecting my iPhone 4 to arrive today and I've been using a BlackBerry Curve since March.
I know these two phones are universes apart, but what should I expect from the phone that completely differs from my old BlackBerry? Other than iOS having a better UI.

So far I love the iPhone. Just switched from BB 2 days ago. My only problem so far is that I am getting killed in data usage. 100mb today alone. I never exceeded 200mb in an entire month on BB. A lot of reading leads to speculation that ios5 has caused problems. My phone came preloaded with it. I have done everything I could find that recommended how to save data usage and nothing is helping

When I switched from my Blackberry over to the iPhone I think the hardest thing (even though it took maybe an hour) to do is get used to no physical keyboard. Other than that everything is simpler and a whole lot better. The only thing I miss though is BBM and iMessage is no BBM.

BB data is compressed so you use very little of your data plan. iPhone data is not compressed so you will use more. web browser is 1000x better though. it is not an ios 5 bug. try making sure that you are connected to wifi at home/work that will save you some.
