You are so dead on.
Waaay back I switched from a 7250 to the VX6700 when I was with VZN. That might have been my most painful move with phones EVER....Where do I start....freezing issues, daily resets needed, wandering stylus calibration, etc, etc.
My favorite was when it wanted my stylus to have to touch OUTSIDE OF WHERE THE PHONE EXISTED for it to work.
I put that 6700 on eBay, walked into a VZN store and paid (got a decent negotiated price) out-of-contract rate for another 7250. I have since switched to CW and am using the 8800.
RIM OS just works and works every day. I also often comp it to the Mac OS as when you want to do something, there is a very good chance that the way to do it will be more simple than you expect.
I like BB's so much I am going to have a hard time deciding whether or not to get the iPhone when it comes out. I want it and it will be sexy as heck but if it does not perform as well as my BB......who knows...
..oh and I totally forgot about battery life! The folks I know with the Q are NOT happy about this.
