Default I want to love my iphone but its not a blackberry

What I Hate About The Apple Iphone 3G
  • battery is not user replaceable
  • disabled a2dp bluetooth profile (No bluetooth music on the king of music phones???? Very dumb!!!)
  • incompatible with most ipod dock connector accessories
  • locked down ring tone support (You pay to make ringtones out of itunes tracks you've already purchased)
  • no led light/flash
  • no office/pdf document support
  • no turn-by-turn gps software support
  • no video support
  • some failed outgoing calls and scrambled incoming calls
  • touchpad keyboard difficult to use for more than a short text
  • weekly ipod failures (tracks just stop and iphone resets to home screen)
What I Love About The Iphone 3G
  • built in 16gb memory
  • integrated application store
  • mobile me push calendar, contacts and mail
  • tiny ac adapter
  • visual voice mail

By contrast all the things I love about blackberry are the opposites of what I hate about the iphone. e.g. user replaceable battery, a2dp, universal compatibility with mini USB, freedom to load any sound I want as a ringtone, an excellent LED light/flash, choices for turn by turn navigation, good photo and video for a phone, a user editable autotext dictionary and then finally there is the wonderful keyboard and BIS/BES I so love and miss.

All this said - WTT Rogers 16GB iPhone 3g for Rogers Blackberry Bold
