However, the push email was the main reason I switched. Email is automatically sent to my BB without me having to do anything other than the initial set up. It works, it isn't broken, so there is no reason to fix it.
Security is another big plus, as is security, build quality and the PDA features (email, contacts, calendar and phone) in one device.
The hang ups were my biggest issue, would just lock up for no reason at all. I was a BB guy and I wanted to see what all the buz was about wm devices so I bought one and two weeks later I threw it in the garbage. Becuase I didnt want to sell anyone a piece of crap.
The stability and push email can not be beat.
