    I just wanted to say hello to everyone on this forum. I am a regular over at and saw someone over there mention this site.

    I have been a Blackberry user for the past 6 years due to work. Right now I have the Bold 9000, which has been a great phone. My biggest complaint is the app memory available. The newer devices are coming out with 4 times the app memory that my 9000 has so it seems like RIM is listening to some extent.

    My work is now allowing iPhones and Android phones to connect to our Exchange servers. The have actually been allowing iPhones for about 8 months now. My wife has had the 3GS for about a year and loves it and I just recently bought a 21.5" iMac (my wife also has a Macbook Pro).

    I am seriously thinking about switching to the iPhone 4 but I am also considering the new Blackberry 9800 Slider.

    My biggest concerns with switching:
    1. Not having Blackberry Messenger. Almost all of the other managers at work have a Blackberry and we use BBM a lot to communicate because it is faster and easier than emailing. I also have some relatives and good friends on there. I guess I could convince most of them to use Yahoo Messenger (that's what my wife and I use).
    2. Indication of a new email (blinking red light). I use my phone mainly for work and manage a large group of people. I am on the road some and in this modern day people expect an answer immediately, if not sooner! I hate having a sound go off for every email. I guess I would get used to checking it more often and will have to see how good the vibrate function is.
    3. When work hooks up an iPhone they say it will not sync Notes and Tasks wireless. I use Notes a lot in Outlook to keep info that I need to access a lot (our company conference call account numbers, frequent flyer numbers, hotel info, etc.). I guess I will have to find something on the iPhone to replace this.

    I look forward to learning a lot on these forums and hopefully I will be a new iPhone 4 user within the next month or two.
