    Cool I have arrived!

    Hello iMore!

    As you could guess from my username, I am a defector from blackberry, having used them on and off for 4 years.

    I have an iPhone 4 on its way!

    I was wondering if you guys can recommend the best apps and any other general tips, anything to make my experience as good as possible.

    Thanks for reading

    As for apps... depends on what you like... there are so many... some of my favs though:
    1. iMore
    2. ScoreMobile
    3. WeatherBug
    4. TeamStream
    5. TeleNav
    6. iLoader
    7. Pandora
    8. TuneIn Radio

    As for general tips... I suggest reading through these forums... tons of helpful info! And then if you have specific questions try searching before creating a new post.

    Welcome, but since we don't know anything about you no one but you will know what apps will be best for you. There are plenty of threads with "Top 5" type lists in them; I suggest searching the forum for some good reading material. Enjoy the new phone—it will probably change everything!

    Welcome aboard , same to me switched from bb world (9900) , there are a lot of useful app on ios , typing on the iPhone isn't that bad the keyboard is great but will take time to adapt , You can try looking in app store for essential app catagory to start with
    Congrats with your new device

    Welcome and congrats on your move. I came from BB with a 7 month stint on Android (Droid X) before settling in with the iPhone a year ago.

    Some of my favorite/most used apps are:

    Pandora
    TweetDeck
    Poynt
    Youversion Bible
    The Weather Channel
    Waze
    Alarm Clock HD
    Ascendo DataVault
    Dropbox
    TuneIn Radio

    I'd also recommend getting a case for protection.

    Welcome to iMore and good luck with your iPhone 4. As to apps, this is a personal thing. Ones that I like and use might not fit your taste.

    Hello, Goodbye! If you like "reader" type apps, let me know. I have a few extra codes for Instapaper up for grabs.

    You will not regret it, I can promise you that.

    I'd recommend Tweetbot, CNN, Temple Run, Flipboard, and Tapatalk just to name a few.

    Apps depend on what you're gonna use your phone for. If you're into music, there's Pandora, iHeart, Sirius/XM. If sports is your thing, there's tons.

    You can search in the iOS app library by category, so just search.

    Jailbreaking may be an option for you as well to customize your iPhone how you like it. Mine is jailbroken and I've tweaked a lot.

    If you could swing it I would highly recommend the 4s not the 4. It's gonna be the only phone that will get the ios6 update. Correct me if I'm wrong?

    iOS 6 will be compatible with iPhone 3GS, 4 and 4S models, the 4th generation iPod touch, the iPad 2 and of course the new iPad.

    Like you haven't jailbroken? And you can ALWAYS do a factory reset before you bring it in for a repair!

    I defected because i've been with blackberry for about 4 years, I fancied a change. Also iPhone's app store is far superior, big companies seem to support ios and android over bb.

    I just defected too!! :O BB user for 5 years and never thought I'd switch...but I've been really happy the past 2 weeks and the keyboard has not taken long at all to get used too!!

    I got the 4 also as I have no need for Siri!! lol

    Built in screenshot feature is neat...loving the camera!...not sure about jailbreaking yet but at least rearranging my screens has helped get over my 'bb theme fix'!

    So far I love:
    WhatsApp
    ScoreMobile
    Pandora
    The Weather Channel
    Keeper (password storage)

    ...and I have 3 protective cases!!

    Congrats! I'm a defecting returner I guess... (?). I had a 3GS and then everyone around me started getting BlackBerrys, and I felt I was missing out with the whole Messenger and all, had a 9300 then 9800 then 9900, recently started missing the iPhone bad and remembering all the apps i had, so got a 4 and signed in to App Store and there all my old apps were! Dont get me wrong I loved BB (my username is from Mobile Nations CrackBerry forums), but kinda regret getting rid of the 3GS now, couldve traded it for money off the 4. Siri for me is interesting but not something I'd use so I'm happy with the 4. Anyway didnt mean to hijack thread.

    +1 for WhatsApp, it's available on BB so if you have any old messenger contacts you wanna keep IMing get them to get it, I did.

    Games-wise Draw Something is great!
