The battery and no card swapping is a big issue for the iPhone but (so far) I find the graphical smart phones have much more potential to be insanely useful.

If I could switch carriers I might go the Google phone route. I like what they are doing and I have more confidence in them pleasing the non business user base than I do BB or iPhone. I think BB is more into keeping it's BES base and Apple is more into doing what they think is best instead of what others ask for.
I just recently changed from the iPhone to the bold and haven't looked back. I need to constantly get e-mail and there was not an instant e-mail feature, the best thing that the iPhone had was the fetch option that just DRAINED the battery. The iPhone might have been the coolest phone i have ever had though. The interface is just so user friendly, the applications are awesome and easily accessible, and the iPod feature was awesome. I have had just about every phone on the market in the past 5 years. I have realized that touch screen is just not for me. To me nothing can replace the feel of a real keyboard in my hands.
I always end up going back to blackberrys. I find that besides the glamor and the cool games of the iPhone and similar devices, there is nothing i can do on the iPhone that i can't do on my Bold.
