    Blackberry 8830 World Edition on Verizon. So Far (1+ week later) I have not found many reasons to be sorry about choosing the iPhone. In fact, some people are quite envious of the iPhone, and may be purchasing one themselves.

    Blackberry 8130 Pearl on Verizon. I paid $85 to cancel my contract and get iPhone. I think it was a smart move, I really like my iPhone.

    had the blackjack II, tilt, trek 750, and curve. I miss the PIM and stability of my wm6 devices, but love the web browsing and large screen.

    LG V (before it was stolen):

    Happy:
    - MUCH faster load times (even without 3G) and full html (nearly) compared to the V
    - Apps... it's an addiction now.
    - The iChat styled SMS messages
    - Visual Voicemail
    - I get service in my home (still not 100% but better than Verizon)
    - The silent/ringer toggle.. it is better than going through menus or holding down a button for a few seconds
    - YouTube - sometimes you just want to laugh
    - GPS and all the apps that work with it
    - AMAZING calendar that syncs with Outlook which syncs with Yahoo! - Calendar so I no longer have to apologize for missing dentist appointments I made 6 months prior.
    - Big, bright screen
    - Much better camera than the V
    - More info can be stored in contacts (address... which I always seem to forget to bring when I am mailing out a package at the post office/birthdays...which remind in calendar)
    - Push/fetch email... while most of my emails are far from important.. there are a few that make the free service (obviously included in data plan.. but I'm not using MobileMe) worth it.

    I am sure there is more I am happier with... can't remember all the goodness right now.


    Miss:
    - QWERTY keyboard... but I am getting GOOD.. and missing it less every day... plus I like the virtual keyboard for scrolling/flicking through web pages and playing games and wouldn't give that up for a QWERTY again.
    - Bit smaller size was easier to hold but I have adapted in a couple days
    - Forwarding SMS messages
    - Speed dial (although "Favorites" is a great substitute)

    Well, I'm almost embarrassd to say but my last phone was a 5 year old Sanyo( scp- 4900 if I remember right). It still works fine to this day, same battery too. So I guess this considered a one hell of an upgrade LOL

    It's obviously a joke. I mean come one everyone knows wm6 is not stable.

    I had a Curve 8320 before my IPhone.

    I've had the tilt, treo 750, 8525, blackjack 1&2, and some other smartphones. I never would get spontaneous reboots, they would rarely lock up, and they were far better at PIM apps. Now, there was almost always some lag on most of my an devices except my treo which remains the most stable phone I've had. The iphone is great, but the current software is crap.

    The Treo 700P now in my pocket will be my old phone tomorrow. The Black 16G 3G will be my first non-Palm OS smartphone in over 5 years. I think I'm as eager to ditch Palm as fast as I was eager to ditch a non-smartphone back then.

    Wow, I am a 1 Week 3g owner and I am going back to Treo I think. I love the interface but for people who use Smartphones as Smartphones will quickly tire of 3G's limitations. This is a rough decision for me but I am thinking of returning iphone and getting a Touch. I can't believe the number of limitations that the iphone has that I encounter several times a day.

    I posted something along the lines of what I'm going to say here in the TreoCentral forums...

    For me, as a very recent Treo user, I find that the things at which the Treo excels are the things that I need the least, and the things at which the iPhone excels are the things I find most useful for my particular needs.

    But obviously, this is a YMMV situation.
