Maybe setting up other types of exchange, such as the google sync are more complicated, but when using Microsoft Exchange, it's very easy.

I should be getting my iphone 4s on Wednesday and hope to have it set up on Thursday. Our office runs BES too, but only for email and calendar. Right now I sync tasks and memo's to the Blackberry manually using desktop manager.
I hope to have the same set up on the iphone, BES for email and calendar but i-tunes for memo and task, the people I spoke to at apple thought it should work.
I'll post my findings when i'm all set up and have had a day or two to play with it.

BBM was one of the only reasons I was staying until I found that.

I'm also coming from BlackBerry, though this isn't my first switch. I had a Pearl 8100 that I left for the 3GS and then after I cracked my 3GS screen and the phone just ... died, I went back to BlackBerry. Now I'm back with the 4S and plan on staying for a long time. iPhones just work and do so beautifully.

I am about to make the switch as well. I went out and bought the 9930, for full price after dealing with issues with my DroidX, and am totally regretting my decision.. All the phone has is a touch screen and keyboard. The "app world" is laughable, how can you not have a calorie counter or tumblr app?!
Hopefully it will be a smooth transition.

I've had mine about 24 hours now. Typical Rogers issue with switching from bberry to iphone service, but since that's done, all is pretty good. I do miss the physical keyboard, but am getting used to it and battery life seems very good so far

Just got my first iPhone yesterday. I have been a BB user for over 4 years. Have nothing bad to say about BB, just needed to try something different. So far the experience has been great, but will have to adjust to the different battery life. Love the speed!

Ok folks, I have one for you. I used to use this neat little program for BlackBerry called "ontocalendar" - it was a great way to take an email and create a calendar entry from that email. a great reminder tool (it could do the same for tasks) - any ideas if I can do that on my iphone 4s??
