blackberrian, 16 Apr 2010actually it depends on what u want mostly dude..both of them have their own ability,their own ... moreI will have to agree. You could use a BB for fun and entertainment, and you can use an iPhone for business.
However in general, BB are more preferred as a business tool as it's focus is on the free instant messaging, which business users need alot, rather then playing music or video. With an actual keyboard texting is much easier, then say texting on a touchscreen.
BB IM allows you to IM anyone in the world with a BB without extra data charges. In order to do that on the iPhone you need to pretty much have a Data Plan, as not many plans allow for International Texting. Or in general you gotta pay extra.
iPhone is preferred for entertainment due to how it interacts with video/audio. For Audio iTunes and Coverflow works really well on iPhone/iPod Touch platform, and makes it really easy to see what song is playing the cover art, flip through your albums etc etc. You also have an App to access youTube so you can play videos there.
The screen on the BB is decent, but isn't as good as the 3.0 or higher screens on the touchscreen based smartphones more geared towards multimedia.
[deleted post]actually it depends on what u want mostly dude..both of them have their own ability,their own strength,their own weaknesses..to me both of them are superbly great bro!!..BB is not just for business n iphone also does not for entertainment!..BB also for fun n entertainment n iphone also can do some business thing..both of them powered by their own Oses..Mac for iphone n BB os for BB..both of them have their own portal to 3rd parties software..u can search n install what ever apps u want to ur device..whether it is business app,or entertainment app..
my facts coming from experience bro!..i own these 2 devices..iphone 3g n BB curve 8520 aka gemini (this killer machine - BB bold 2 aka onyx,is my next target)..hahaha..thats y i know about it..(although im not an expert but still can be useful to others..hehehe)..so,my suggestion..u need to go to any mobile shops around u and take a deep look towards these 2 devices..hold them,feel them,play with them to get some ideas..then make a good research..dont just refer to GSMarena only..good luck n happy buying..hohohoh..
Plamen Panchev, 16 Apr 2010Could you tell me whether it is possible to use public wi-fi internet or I am supposed to used... morein order for u to get all benefits from BB devices,yes is the answer..after u sign up for the BIS/BES,then only u can download n use whatever apps that available in BB..w/out BIS/BES,u still can get through internet but very limited..for instance,u cant get the push emails..if u want to read ur emails,u need to go to their website..also for FB,u also cant download the app into ur device..u need to open it via FB mobile site..n when u send or comment or posting ur status,u only can get this "via mobile web"!! isnt that not cool at all! it just shows that u only own n use other brand of handset such as nokia,LG,samsung,or whatever..but if u have that FB app installed in ur device u should get this "via FB for Blackberry" same like iphone "via FB for Iphone"..does that look cool??of coz it is..hahaha..im proud to be a blackberrian..but of coz BB is not just for FB or other social networks entertainment it contains all..once u have ur BIS services then u r damn ROCKS!..u r 24/7 covered by internet bro..so,SAY NO TO WIFI..hahahaha
Could you tell me whether it is possible to use public wi-fi internet or I am supposed to used the BIS/BES plans? In other words, if I don't use BIS/BES, am I able to connect to the Internet?

If its a Hotmail account, go to the BIS website and edit the account. Select the option to use Microsoft Push services or Mobile services and accept the changes (its like a warning) and then it should resend the account to your Blackberry. Hope this helps! Please let me know :)

If its a Hotmail account you need to enter the BIS website and edit the Hotmail account. There should be an option that says Microsoft Mobile Services or something like that. When you select it it will tell you that you can't undo the changes and you need to select Yes to accept the warning. It will then use push services. I had to do that to my hotmail accounts too. Make sure that you've done that ;)
Let me know if that helped!

Anonymous, 14 Apr 2010Why do ppl say this is a man's phone, it looks manly????? can't a woman hold it and look elegant??It actually looks great on women, especially the new white one! But I guess people say it is more "manly" since its a bit thicker than the sleeker Curve series. But for me, a woman with a smartphone is sexy no matter the color or brand... even more if she knows how to use it ;)
