Wow - ArgonNJ calling someone else a fanboy. Now that is saying something.

Not a Fanboy of anything, just telling you like it is from my experiences and the experiences of many.

I have gone through more devices and every major carrier (some more than once), so I can speak with the facts as I know them and see them.

Heck, I may be using another device someday or another carrier again too, but it sure won't be a iPhone or any touch screen device.

As far as the work place goes, I work for a fortune 500 company and I believe now in the 200 mark going on 31 years now. iPhone's are not used and every Manager and level above uses BB's. They would laugh to see someone here using an iPhone.

When I had my iPhone, I didn't use it at work, that's for sure.

Been there, done it. Hmmm, I think I said that already.

I'm no fan boy. Like I've said many times, I use what works for me at the time. For a few years the BB worked for me, now the iphone works for me. 2 years from now, who knows.

these threads are pointless, people who ultimately think their product is perfect for them will not listen to any dissenting opinions. It goes both ways - if your happy then good for you, but thats just you.

Not a stretch IMHO. I like having a portable SD card.

Someone needs to get honest with themselves.

The ONLY posts that you make now in this BlackBerryForum is to defend the iPhone and criticize anyone who comments on the iPhone in THIS BlackBerryForum.

You're an apple fanboi of the worst sort, no less than I am a BlackBerry fanboy.

Argon, you lose all credibility when you try to deny the truth, even if it is only the perceived truth.

So let's get off the iPhone and deal with Argon's lack of reality...

The best part is when Apple does something that other companies have been doing for years and all of the Apple fanboys treat it like it's a breakthrough.

Saw this commercial for the first time yesterday. Made me laugh - definately comes across as if Apple invented copy & paste.

It's a step forward for the iPhone, albiet a late step.

The part that gets me is when Fanboys of certain devices go to other forums that are not of their Fanboy devices, just to make waves.

I mean, I am now a BB user and I don't go to iPhone forums! I go to Sprint forums and BlackBerry forums.

That tells me one thing, these users may not be happy with their devices but are stuck with them.

I'm glad I can change devices and or carriers anytime I wish to. Cost doesn't come into play when I want something. I ALWAYS go with the best device and carrier at the time which of course is BlackBerry for the devices and SprintPCS for the carrier.

Nope, here to keep you honest and to provide a counter point to other BB users who may have questions about other options. Plus I like it here.
