    I have had my Iphone for almost a month coming from a BB Storm, and I HAVENT HAD TO DO A BATTERY PULL! I know, I know, I couldn't do one if I wanted to, but, I DON'T HAVE A REASON TO DO ONE!! It's such a beautiful thing.

    I came from a Storm 2 and I rarely had to do battery pulls. I also didn't run a million apps either.

    I came from a Bold 9650 and had to do them at least once a day if not more. I am loving that I don't have to do them now! I also don't have to do resets like I did on my androids. It's amazing. Everything just works. I didn't know a phone could be like that.

    I came from a BB 8330 and by the end of the 2 years I was doing a battery pull at least 3 times a week. I don't miss them at all. It is nice to have a phone that is reliable.

    I had done more battery pulls in 11 days with the Bold than in two months with the Storm!

    I was the other way, my bold was about every 3rd day i had to pull. It got to the point with my s and s2 that i was pulling it 2-3 times a day just to get it to work right. (and yes there were multiple exchanges for new storms made) Worst phones i have EVER owned..

    I was the same. My Bold did better than my Storms. Except I don't think the Storm's were the worst phones I have ever owned. The Tour was the worst I'd ever owned. It was god awful!

    I had a BB Storm and had to do a battery pull at least once a day. After that I went to the Droid and had to do a reset once a day just to get the phone to work correctly...I love my iPhone and that is all I have to say about that!!!

    Interesting. I rarely had to do battery pulls with my 8310 (or the 5 models that preceded it) or my Droid.

    My 8330 on Sprint needed a pull every 2 days or so. I did love the keyboard on that phone but I hated everything else about it.

    Came from a Bold 9650 and no battery pull for me as well and the 17 minute wait for the Bold to reboot. Blackberry is a good phone but the iPhone is way better (My wife does miss BBM).

    Many of us miss BBM... but not the other stuff you pointed out. Welcome to the wonderful world of iOS!

    I thought I would miss BBM way more than I have so far. The upside to having the IPhone far exceeds the "need" for BBM!

    I must be in the minority with regards to the issues I have had with my blackberries over the years. The storm 1 was terrible and the curve was an excellent device and I currently, keep the BB Bold for business use that I find to be great. Very rarely, do I have issues with it. Clearly, its no iphone but with the amount of emails I receive and send per day there just isn't an adequate replacement at this time.

    Hi everyone, i don't have my iPhone YET....but i'm hoping for one SOOON! i'm on a bold 9650 os6.431 right now, and with mem leaks i'm batt pulling every 2-3 days--what a PITA honestly! i've been a bb user since 2008, and have had my bold since Dec.2010, the hubby & one of my kids got iPhones, one on Monday & the other Tues. the hub came from enV3 and the kid from a bb. they both love the iPhone! I like mucking with os's, using bw, batex and themes, BUT its honestly getting boring. Our house hold has had iPods since the day they came out, right now we have 5-6 iPods, 2 iTouch and a 1st gen iPad. So we are familiar with Apple products. I know i won't jailbreak, but then again, i may change my mind, lol.

    So i'm looking forward to my upgrade for an iPhone as well, i'm actually going to call VzW and see if they will let me upgrade sooner.

    In the meantime i've been looking around and reading some info here and enjoying the ss's as well

    i'm sure i'll love it. Every nite the hubby comes home and i jack his iPhone & mess with it! lol. Plus being able to have that access to his iPhone will help me to decide if its something i definately want to switch to with no regrets or looking back. I know VzW give the 14days to return etc, BUT i'd rather not have to worry about that at all. I'd like to just be 100% sure right off the bat and just go with it!

    I did call VzW and because my upgrade isn't till Aug.2012 one of my other lines on the other hand can be avail for upgrade in Aug-Sept of this year, and then that line can in turn use my upgrade come next Aug. SOOO i may just do that!

    Ain't that the truth. My S2 was so bad I scheduled QuickPull to reboot it every night at 4am so it would be up and working for me in the morning. Even then, it was no sure bet it would last through the day.

    Sounds just like me. On my BB curve 8330 it got to the point I had quick pull doing the reboot at 5 a.m. every morning so that when I left for work at 6 I had a fresh phone with enough memory free to last all day and not bog down. Switching to the droid that went away with a reboot about monthly usually due to some bad app causing a problem. I look forward to not having to worry about reboots with my iPhone.
