  • Blackberry curve - I have no interest in the iPhone - too much going on with the apps and all. I just want to make phone calls, text and take a picture now and then.

  • My friend has a Iphone had he said every time there are new updates he loses all his saved info when his phone updates. He also said it did not do that to him when he has a Blackberry.

  • I like iPhone, but have never used a Blackberry. My information doesn't get lost when I update. Also, AT&T has them for $50 right now if you sign a 2 year contract.

  • I had a Blackberry Pearl for about 2 years, and now I have an iPhone. The Blackberry was ok, but not great. I love my iPhone, and I have never had a problem with losing information on it.

  • Had every blackberry there was and now have the iPhone. I love both phones but over all I have to say the best is the iPhone. You can do so much more with it. The only thing I kind of miss is blackberry messenger but really it's not that big of a deal

  • I've had several BB's, and I now have an iphone. I love them both. But I would say I have less problems (freezing up, being slow, restarting on it's own) with the iphone. I had issues with my BB's, but I loved them when they worked, lol. I would go with the BB storn myself, if you go that route. And it was actually cheaper for us (5 phones) to have 5 iphones with data and text (AT&T) and all of that, than it was to have 5 BB's with data (VERIZON).
