Re: BlackBerry Z10 to iPhone 5
Interesting thread. Welcome to the iPhone family and iMore! I have had a long history of being a BlackBerry user. I spent a lot of years on the CrackBerry forum, and know a lot of peope there. Fact is, I have jumped from BB devices to iPhone and back more times than I can remember...and it finally came down to my priority being a superior ecosystem. I actually have had four BlackBerry Z10's, because I got bored by the iOS6 and the same old same old of the iPhone (same basically since 2007). I kind of loved the fact I was using a BlackBerry, and had fond memories of BBM and all that was about BlackBerry usage years before...but I could not warm up to the "all gesture" driven OS and the horribly lacking app selection. That, and the device felt so cheap and such a poor representation of a company that was grasping for their last breath to release! It was clearly a beta device running a beta level OS with horrible support and a third-rate ecosystem (worse than Apple, Google or Windows).
Finally I totally gave up...wished the best for BlackBerry, and came back to Apple and the iPhone. I'm not anywhere near an Apple fanboy, and even get a little pissed the way Apple strings their loyalists along from device to device with minimal changes...but like it's been said many times IT JUST WORKS. And, it does it better than most. So, until some drastic and amazing changes take place in the BlackBerry camp (and they won't), looks like I'm here to stay.
Welcome again, and I hope you enjoy your iPhone!
