I would say BlackBerry. I think this page -> The iPhone is a piece of ****, and so is your face. (Warning - adult language) explains it all, although the author is a Nokia fan.

Instead of sending a MMS, simply attach the photo to an email and send away.

Dont know if this will help but I found the reviews of the iPhone and Curve to be especially thorough and very helpful when I made the decision to go with the BlackBerry: WirelessInfo.com - Cell Phone Reviews and Wireless Plan Ratings

I too bought the iPhone (JB/Unlocked 16G) to convince myself there was something better than a BB. However I was wrong. The iPhone does have a better web experience but it lacks in too many ways to compare it to a BB. Now I have a $500.00 video player on my hands, which I do use to watch movies and listen to music while I actually get things done on my 8320.

However the end result is within yourself and what uses you intend the iPhone to satisfy.

I have a friend who bought an Iphone and is utterly unhappy with it. It just doest have all that much to offer when you get right down to it, web browsing is really its big push. I would include the multimedia experience, but itunes is worthless to you unless you have already been using it for your ipod or as your multimedia player.

I chose the Blackberry 8310 yesterday mainly for the price (got it new for $60 from AT&T!) and the fact that if you ask anyone what a good smartphone is, almost exclusively they will answer 'BlackBerry'.

Its your decision but do some research into how many cool apps are available for each since it doesnt sound like your going to be doing a lot of internet tasks.

I have both and fairly satisfied with each device. I have the 8330 which we know is CDMA, and I run my iPhone on T-Mobile and other GSM networks if needed. The iPhone is sweet and incomparable in interface. Saying that I think I enjoy using the BB slightly more. The choice is easy once you know what your use for the phone is.

Yes? This is true for the most part though BBs have great media functions as well. Like other people have said, you're going to get pro-BB responses here. Unbiased opinions are not likely to be found.
