    Blackberry is a workhorse… iPhone is a toy.

    John Doe,

    Since you have one of each, why don’t you give us what you feel to be the comparison. This way those of us who might be facing a purchasing decision (Me!!!) soon can have additional information.

    Thanks,

    The Wolf

    Sacrilege-

    I heard that the battery life on a blackberry is much better than an iPhone. I was considering the iPhone but I refuse to carry around a charger.

    The iPhone 4 can definitely last at least a full day.

    Blackberry is the ultimate for anyone who emails alot.

    iPhone is a toy with lots of apps.

    YWN uses both and an iPad as well.

    “The iPhone 4 can definitely last at least a full day.”

    Using what features? Would I be able to play music for about 3 hours, send about 300 messages (email and text), and talk on the phone for an hour?

    I have an iPhone 3GS. I love it!

    Blackberry is better for someone who uses a phone a lot for text, IM, email, etc.

    iPhone is better for web browsing, apps, and just to play around with. I think the iPhone is cooler too.

    dunno, I can’t promise, but I think it will last for what you describe.

    So, if you do a lot of emailing, texting and imming, stick with the Blackberry?

    Email and battery are about the same the only big difference is typing.

    Some may think that bb physical buttons are easier but once you get used to typing on the screen it will even out.

    If you like making calls, the iPhone on the AT&T network is terrible according to every review I’ve read and everyone to whom I have spoken.

    On the other hand, the Wall Street Journal recently reported that Verizon is expected to get its version of the iphone in Q1 2011 which is what I am waiting for.

    my father has an iphone and he’s also got a portable battery called the MOPHIE JUICEBOX which doubles the battery life.

    The iphone is better cause of all the apps.

    Hey Sacrilege, if you don’t have an iPhone, how do you know it is a toy?

    I currently have a blackberry and iPod touch. The battery on the blackberry is perfect for me. I only need to charge it every night. I use my iPod for music, some apps, and surfing the web. I find that its battery is drained before the end of the day. I also find it much easier to type with physical keys but I would give that up…

    I have the first one that came out. The Motorola Droid. Great phone but they have made many more advanced models since then. I have to do some research as I am looking to upgrade my phone soon. Android has anything that a Blackberry or Iphone has +

    drop your iphone ONCE, you need a front glass, and for iphone4, TWO – one for the back!

    apple products= UNupgradeable,expensive,fragile

    so what if its in style to own a macbook ipad or iphone?

    i am not perfect like steve jobs is. i may drop my phone one day – thats why i go with RIM.

    I figure because of all the Apps, that you really dont need for any kind of work. Because all the “prepsters” are the first ones to buy it and then upgrade and then upgrade again… yea, sounds like a toy.

    I dont have an iphone but I have the droid and I find that there are many useful apps for work as well as other areas of life. The email apps are great. I have an app for currency conversion and measurement, scientific calculator, calendar and reminder app, something that reads word documents, pdfs, instant message. My phone is a mini computer.

    But you also get the coolness factor with iphones and Androids, they are touch screen, they have great graphics…

    Iphones and Androids are efficient. Unless Blackberry does something huge they will shortly become obsolete.

    Interesting. My former Secretary had a hard time with that.

    Was that a shot at Hillary?

    That was her excuse? That she only could put one email account on there?

    is there a way to disable internet on the iphone?

    Yes it was.

    “The former secretary of state described her decision to rely exclusively on her private account as a matter of convenience and a way to avoid carrying two devices.”

    Is there some kind of reasonable explanation for this, or is this, “My dog age my homework.”?
