I've been reading as much as I can here and I'm starting to see a few familiar names and faces...from Crackberry! I'm wondering just how many folks here were Crackberry abusers and what made you jump ship?
I had been with Verizon for about 8 years and was convinced that the Storm was every bit as good as the iPhone...until I actually put an iPhone in my hands and used it. That was a mistake. Now I have learned that the Storm is merely the best option that Verizon has to offer and I must say it is weak compared to the iPhone. The constant OS upgrades and always trying to work around a poorly designed touch screen, not to mention the constant battery pulls, memory leaks and freezing up, all of which is non existent in the iPhone. The iPhone's smooth OS and impeccable fit and finish is something to be marveled at...I made the jump to AT&T and bought a new 8GB iPhone. I have a 4 phone plan and none were even close to contract time so it cost a small fortune to get out of Verizon, but my wife now is a smart phone user as well and she is completely hooked on the iPhone.
I'm looking forward to seeing how many other former abusers are here.
One last thing...I do miss the back button on the Blackberry

former 8800 abuser had it for a while loved it alot bb messenger is just great, Got an ipod touch when they came out fell in love waited for the iphone 3g then gave the crackberry to my girlfriend's brother. i kinda lost the love for my iphone tried to replace it with a nokia e71 and n85 but kept coming back to my iphone, recently got a g1 unlocked and I lovvveeeeee it. Now that 3.0 is coming out my iphone might become top dog again i just know i will never get rid of my iphone.

Had an 8700c, Pearl, and Bold.. loved the Bold but simply got bored with it, let alone frustrated about the pretty much non-compatibility with a Mac cpu
the iPhone has kept my attention and looks just as good as the Bold
also I wanted to have my music and phone all on one device - didn't like having to take both to the gym
it is so much easier for a Mac user to update music onto a phone using the iPhone than any other phone so this pretty much sealed the deal

I'm gonna be dumping the trusty 8310 this summer. I was willing to deal with the lack of Mac support on the BB over the lack of features on the iPhone. Now that 3.0 will give the iPhone those features, I'm taking it and I'll be happy that my upgrades will be nice and easy again!

I had a BlackBerry for a while. I thought it was the best thing ever. I didn't even want an iPhone. Then I started playing with a friends iPod Touch. Then another friend got an iPhone. Then a week later I picked up an unlocked one off eBay. The rest is history. I sold my old Curve for just about as much as I paid for the iPhone. Don't think I'll ever look back.
