Default New forum for 'Phoneswitchers'.

Please Login to Remove!

If you are considering changing from a Blackberry to another type of smartphone or are perhaps thinking of changing from an iPhone to a Blackberry for instance or a Treo to a Blackberry my new forum might be able to help.

Each time I changed smartphones, most recently from a Blackberry to an Android G1, I would visit some forums for the phone I was switching to, and ask questions about it and hopefully get answers to how it differs to the phone I presently have.

Now there likes the problem! You see if you visit an Android forum, a Blackberry forum etc you will find it is very biased towards that particular platform. So when you start asking questions like:

“How does the calendar layout on the iPhone differ to the layout on the Blackberry I have now?”

You might get a few sensible answers but you will likely also attract some of the forum trolls and end up in a small flame war of your own. This has happened to me on several occasions.

So the idea behind my forum is you can hopefully get impartial advice from people who have already made the particular ‘phoneswitch’ you are considering, or who are also considering switching and may be able to help with your questions.

I’ll also be hanging out there and will help wherever I can!

The forum is called “Phone Switchers” and can be found here, Phone Switchers Forum • Index page, please give it a try.

It's early days yet but hopefully it should start receiving some more posts soon!
