Blackberry? Iphone? Galaxy? …Opinions plz! which 1 would you rate as best/why?February 13, 2013 6:14 pm at 6:14 pm #929614snowbunny3318Member
I had a blackberry, it was really good, but since I had an outdated model, the scrolling part stopped working at one point and then I had to get rid of it. Luckily, the newer blackberrys have a touch scroll thing which would prevent that problem.
Iphones in my opinion are to fragile to own unless you are extremely wealthy.
My mom has a galaxy and loves it.
If your a teenager, I would go with the blackberry, and if your older I would go with the galaxy because the galaxy is really big.February 13, 2013 6:22 pm at 6:22 pm #929615
Ye I’m kinda fed up with fragile stuff. The one I have now is a LG vs700 and the thing keeps on freezing since day one. Iphones are made to break n I believe they’re produced with that in mind otherwise APPLE will end up broke (like CROCS!) I would need something really up to date and durable. Between the blackberry and the galaxy I need more detail on that besides for the actual size of the phone. Anything on those??February 13, 2013 6:26 pm at 6:26 pm #929616springbok007Participant
diff operating systems, Iphone user very friendlyFebruary 13, 2013 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #929617Yserbius123Participant
Depends what you want to do with it and what year you are living in. If this were 2005 I would tell you to get a BlackBerry. Otherwise I’d tell you to get a Galaxy as it’s probably cheaper than an iPhone.February 13, 2013 8:11 pm at 8:11 pm #929618snowbunny3318Member
At the same time, there are many advantages to blackberrys, although I know that they are not doing so well in the stock market, which MAY mean that they will go out of business. On the other hand, if you are a teenager, you might want a newer trendier device. BUT, you should also keep in mind that galaxy is humongous, so it will be annoying to schlep if you are accustomed to smaller purses.February 13, 2013 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #929619AshParticipant
Don’t get the latest Blackberry (Z10) if you want to be able to in install a web filter.
Galaxy (Android) better as a business phone, otherwise choose based on price and size.February 13, 2013 9:03 pm at 9:03 pm #929620
Hmmmm the latest Blackberry looks really cool but ye there is the price to consider. That leaves me wondering about the Galaxy…February 13, 2013 9:15 pm at 9:15 pm #929621kkls45Member
i like the iphone bestFebruary 13, 2013 9:16 pm at 9:16 pm #929622WIYMember
Are you assuming that if someone has an Iphone they must be friendly?!February 13, 2013 9:42 pm at 9:42 pm #929623Geordie613Participant
The blackberrys have a problem that they get very slow. At the moment the phone to get is SS Galaxy Note II. very user friendly and more features than iphone.

Ash: Why do you say you can’t put a web filter on the z10? as far as I know k9 will be coming to blackberry world shortly after the mid-march launch. There are many ways around k9 on android but might not be any on blackberry.February 14, 2013 2:09 am at 2:09 am #929626ThePurpleOneMember
k9 is available on android as of nowFebruary 14, 2013 2:13 am at 2:13 am #929627ZABACHURParticipant
k9 has too many holes in it on android, on iphone too. I liked it a lot but I accidentally got around it which rendered it useless. If I could accidentally get around it it can’t be very good. I tried to bring it to the attention of the developers but haven’t made any headway yet.February 14, 2013 11:22 am at 11:22 am #929628AshParticipant
K9 on Android isn’t much good, TAG don’t recommend it. There are alternative filters and app lockers for Android which, combined in the right way, allow the phone to have filtered web access. They can be locked down almost as effectively as a iPhone, neither are 100% foolproof.
K9 filtering on the desktop is, despite many claims to the contrary, the best overall filter but the mobile version is nothing like the desktop one and should rarely be used.
If K9 do produce a filter for Blackberry, I wouldn’t trust it either, and doubt that a good filter will come out for the Z10 for quite a while. Blackberrys, both old and the new Z10 do allow you to block the browser altogether, but having filtered web (i.e. you get to use the browser but sites are filtered) on Blackberry is far more complicated, especially if you don’t want to pay a monthly fee.
OP: If you care about filtering on mobiles, then call TAG or Venishmartem.
