Default Back to BB

Earlier this year I swapped my Bold for a Samsung Galaxy Hemorrhoid, I mean Android.

That thunking sound you hear is me kicking myself in the butt. I haven't switched back to BB yet, but it's looking better every day.

I know I'm preaching to the choir here, so I won't rant on about battery life, lack of keyboard, atrocious reliability, blah blah blah. Here are the concerns I do have about moving back, and maybe some of the users can help me.

- Future of BB. I know the news articles say RIM is going through a tough phase right now but that the company isn't in any real danger of folding. True?

- Billing plan. I have three wireless lines on my account (one of them is my son's), two of which were iPhones. I found that having BB and non-BB devices on the same account made the process of selecting features and billing plans exponentially more complicated. Am I just dense, or have other users had similar issues? I'd be interested to hear from users who have accounts sharing BB and non-BB devices.

- Email folders. This actually turned out to be less of an issue than I thought it would be, because while I do use email folders, I very rarely need to manage them from my mobile device; I can do that from my desktop. Still, the fact that the RIM email server doesn't let me access my folders is a minus, albeit a very minor one. Is webmail thru the browser a useful workaround for that?

Those are the main concerns for me as I contemplate moving back to BlackBerry. Any input from users? I'm looking forward to going back to BB, and getting rid of my hemorrhoid.
