Default Should I return to Blackberry?

Please Login to Remove!

I love Blackberrys. I also love the iPhone.

I started with the Pearl 8100. Then I got the original iPhone. After some time with that I got the Curve 8310. After that phone broke I got a unlocked Storm. The Storm didn't really live up to my expectations so I got the Pearl 8120. Then I got the Curve 8900. I love(d) the Curve 8900 but for some reason I decided to get the iPhone 3GS. Now I really miss my Curve 8900. I would have to get the phone without contract so if I decided to go back to the Curve I would have to spend $450 before tax. I would buy from e-bay and save around $50 but I had a really bad experience with Blackberrys on e-bay so I don't do that anymore.

Some of the things I miss about Blackberry are:

-BBM! Pretty much everyone I talk to has it so I would be saving money because I wouldn't need the unlimited text plan.

-Push e-mail.

-All the customizable options.

-Best keyboards. I love their QWERTY's, SureType, and I was able to manage with SurePress.



So what do you think? Is it worth the money to go back to Blackberry. Should I wait for future phone models? Any advice would be great!

Given your history, how likely do you think you'll stay with it before something else catches your eye? =)

Very true. Haha I go through phones like I go through clothes. And I was only listing Blackberrys and iPhones. I also had other AT&T phones mixed in there. Including: Blackjack II, Shine, A737, and some others.

true! till another shiny new toy catches your eye, you'll probably hang on to a bb that you may trade your iPhone in for! the question is.. would you trade your BB for another BB? or would you just get the palm pre?

Now might be a good time to sample the wares from Nokia. Much easier to buy a used Nokia than a used BlackBerry. Cheaper too! Wait out your contract so you can get back to BlackBerrys with a discount/subsidy. Or pick up a used BB from a trusted forum member right here in the Buy/Sell/Trade section. There are usually some listing from people who want to trade an iPhone for a BlackBerry.

I tried to venture away from Blackberry cause I didn't want to pay the data package. I had the pearl 8130 and the curve 8330. Went to a couple regular phones with Verizon even the Env Touch. As soon as the Tour hit I was right back never to stray again. It just does to much not stick with it. Plus you are on ATT and they are getting the 9700 sometime "soon" hopefully. I would get that in a heartbeat if I was on ATT.
