Default Why my iPhone is better than your phone..

Please Login to Remove!

While some of you have no choice in using BB's because of work reason others may like it's simplicity. I for one can't live with all the software problems it has and only have one because it's given to me free by my company. I only use it for BB messenger and that's it.

Anyway I just want to brag and tell you guys how awesome my iPhone is (Once you jailbreak it)

Here are the reason why my iPhone is the best phone on the market:

I have video ringtones. A video plays when I get a call and I can assign everyone a different video whether it be a music video, home video, etc.

Accelerometer makes everything so much better for games, and different utilities, too many to name.

Time Crisis on my iPhone, yes people the game. This is where the accelerometer comes in.

Panoramic Photos so I can take up to 5 pictures and combine them into one long landscape picture.

I can blow on my iPhones speaker and play the Ocarina (it's an app from appstore, youtube it)

I don't get software issues on my iPhone at all. Once in a blue blue blueee moon you'll get a freeze. Nothing that a reboot can't fix.

Live video streaming so I can record videos on my iPhonea and random peole and friends can view it live on the internet while I'm recording!!

So many other things I can do. This does everything except wipe my ass but hopefully that'll be in the next update.

I just wanted to brag about this because I laugh everytime I come to this site and read everyones problems. I have a heart so that's why I help out because I once felt your pain. I fix these phones every single day and know them top to bottom, left to right.

Anyway guys make the switch you won't be disappointed.

Not lame and antogonistic at all. Hopefully your iPhone recognizes not so subtle sarcasm.

Then the obvious question is... if you fix these every day, why can you not fix your own?

What did you expect, to find iPhone users complaining about their problems on blackberry forums?
I once seen iPhone thread for issues with push email so long it choked browsers trying to open it.

Now that you are happy iPhone user, join iPhone forums and be of help to iPhone users.

If you want to have some fun, tell them to switch to blackberries.

I have flip blackberry phone, one of my friends has full keyboard 8830 from Verizon and another (who happened to be from UK) is proud owner of touch screen Storm.
Different blackberries for different folks.

Two out of three I named will be disappointed if they switch and third, well, perhaps he could switch. But would he? Storm works for him.

Glad iPhone works for you.

I appreciate your write up and perspective on the two systems.

Based on what you stated were the high points of the i-phone, I believe you have substantiated what everyone has been saying about the difference between the two. That the i-phone is geared more towards the media and entertainment end of the spectrum.

Prior to buying my phone I researched and interviewed several people about their phones and some who had switched from the BB to the I.

The ones who just used the phone as a phone with gadgets loved the I. The ones who used their phone as a hardcore business tool and a personal secretary, if you will, missed their BB.


Just an unqualified observation...

I don't have any issues with my BB b/c I don't dive deeper than Blackberry Messenger. Once in a blue moon I'll get a uncaught exception error in BBM but guess what, I'm not in the liberty to wait 20 + minutes to fix the phone (Not including the time it takes to download OS software.

I had doubts on the iPhone when I was on Windows Mobile. Blackberries give me headaches and are a pain in the rear.

Anway I could shut you all down by posting up a video of my iPhone and all the crazy things it can do. I have no problem with push email on my phone as I'm on an exchange server. I've never had a problem with any of it's features.

All I'm saying is that BB needs to come out with a solid software package and correct all the problems it has with it's current models. You would think that by now they'd make a phone that powers on in less than 40 seconds. Anway my iPhone is supreme and by the way if you guys are looking into one let me know. I happen to be an expert on this as well. They can come out with as many different blackberries as they want but in the end, it will always be just another blackberry.

Here's my baby:



Still working on my custom theme. I make the icons as well.

You say this like people are posting about being jealous, instead of how this post is obnoxious. Kudos to you for loving your phone - I mean that sincerely as the iPhone is a cool phone - but the meaning of this post is lost on me considering it is a BlackBerry forum.

LOL I'm a fanboy? I've owned many phones from many different manufacturers. This thread is in the blackberry versus so why can't I make a thread?

Secondly an update is not going to brick my phone and I have no need to update since the latest hasn't had anything significant worth upgrading to.

Apparently you showed an interest in what I had to say if you exhausted your energy and time to click on my thread. I'll be expecting a reply from you or maybe not since I just aired you out.

Well heres the point it's the manner in which you posted! You are arrogant at best not like you sat here and listed pro's and Cons. I have had both iphones and yes they are very good phones , but there not as functional as a BB. The reality is there is no need to be arrogant and obnoxious. If you would have handled it differently maybe you would have gotten an adult conversation with BB owners who can appreciate iphones, pluses!
