Welcome back!

I have heard this in reverse as well. People that had the iPhone then switched to a BB device, went back because they missed the touchscreen. I have used a friend's iPhone for a few hours, and could never use it for my everyday phone, I need the real buttons. The iPhone definitely has the cool factor though.

Welcome back. I played around with a friends iPhone for a while and would never give up my Blackberry for that.

Default hmm

if the iphone had the slide out keyboard man they would get even more people to switch but also one of the main problem with the phone is battery life and teh abilty to find programs for it. yes i know they have the sdk comeing out but you can only do so much with a tuch screen only. i have a fold up keyboard for my blackberry its great. you cant even use a fold up on the iphone. the iphone is def for people who dont check there e mail all the time and dont care if there email comes in or not. as for me since i communcate with the middle east and and asia every min counts. when my blackberry goes off at 4 am when i get an email i respond on the spot atleast my suppliers dont have to wait an extra 15 or an hour for me to respond. hands down the ipone is the best toy out there and i think thats all it is movies and music it does a great job but to be honest my 5th gen ipod does a better job plus 8 gigs i can fill that in an hour lol. 15meg download connection. sooooo nice lol.

I got used to it easily. I can actually type a lot faster on my iPhone than I can on my BlackBerry 8310. Im pretty accurate with it, and the fact I don't have to press the button down and the auto correct makes me faster. Im loving it so far. I keep my BB for my work email, and my iPhone is the main one. I love that thing.
