    Well I activated my iPhone4 (Swapped straight up,Torch for iPhone4 ??????) yesterday. Came over from the other side . I have had a iTouch for a few years so it was not to difficult to navigate through the settings etc etc. I don't want to diss BB, but WOW what a difference. One of my friends said " ah they are only toy's", well I like Toy's, but really they are more than just that. I have had it for about 30 hours now and I slept 6 of those and the other 24 playing with the phone. More than impressed with the new phone (More like a mini Mac that does the phone stuff). Looking forward to participating in these forums.

    congrats... also an x bb'er. You will find iphone is much easier nicer to use at work and home. And there are not huge bugs that you need to update the os every month.

    And i agree with cpc12... sell the bb.

    p.s whats an itouch? or you mean ipod touch?

    I just came over to the darkside as BB users put it. Sell your old BB. I sold my year old Bold 9700 for $100. Can't beat that!!! I will never go back to BB. When I got my new iPhone for my B-day 2 weeks ago, I too stayed up for hours playing with. BTW...I still am. Have fun and welcome to the darkside.

    Sorry ipod touch is correct. I just call it that, saves some typing.

    I didn't have to sell BB. Read my first post I swapped it straight up (9800 Torch) for a four month old mint condition iPhone 4. Traded with a lady that needed BB for her business. I bought her and myself a new sim card and away we went. I was to LAZY to cut my sim to fit iPhone. I wonder who got the best of the deal......

    I can't believe someone actually straight up traded an iPhone 4 for a freaking Torch.

    I was just as shocked when I walked away with the phone in my hands. I was looking around to see if it was an ambush of some kind, not kidding. The lady really needed BBM, that was the reason why she swapped. Go figure.

    Hey everyone:

    I'm new here as well and also a former BB user. Those that have suggested no comparison with the iPhone are correct, the iPhone is so much more user friendly and advanced and I'm just beginning to learn what it can do. I had a more limited budget and chose the 3GS model, but it is amazing. I'm looking forward to learning a lot and sharing what I know.

    It's funny to see all the people who were once BB users. I can remember when BB was the phone everyone wanted lol

    I was a Pre user, never liked the BB. When I told Sprint today that I wasnt interested in any Androids, they offered a BB device. I feel they are too cumbersome. I hear the email software is awesome though.

    Remmy, I really think you should wait until June for the new iPhone to come out. There are rumors of multiple iPhones being released, a standard iPhone upgrade, iPhone nano, and even an iPhone with a physical keyboard.

    Even if you just want the regular old iPhone form factor it is worth the wait for the upgrades coming. 3 months is nothing when you've already been waiting so long.
