    Talking Should I Switch?
    My wife and I are Blackberry users. I really love the way that the Blackberry keyboard feels, and the overall functionality of Blackberry. I do not have many apps on my Blackberry. I mainly use it for calls, texts, emails, and pics. I love how fast and simple it is to access and use those areas that I just mentioned. I want to know how accessible the iphone is with those areas, as well as some of the other stuff that would get me over the hump to make the switch to Apple.

    Just say that I wound up getting my wife the new IPhone, would I have to follow up with getting her an Apple computer, wether it be a MacBook or IMac or IPad at the same time or shortly thereafter?

    Thanks,
    MCNJ

    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    I have been on a corporate Blackberry since 2007. I have used 5 different models of BB since then. There is nothing wrong with BB, if my company didnt castrate our plans, I would still be on it for my personal stuff too, however...

    A questions though, if you have no issues with BB and you are used to it, what is making you think about switching to an iPhone?

    As to having to get a new Apple computer because you get an iPhone, no. There is nothing that will require you to get an Apple computer just because you get an iPhone.

    The best answer I can give, is if you are currently Happy with your Blackberry, then stick with it.

    As far as the rest, yes, getting an iPhone is a slippery slope. It often leads to future Apple purchases.

    Don't know if this was addressed to me or not, but if so, both of my posts were very pertinent, whether they were specifically what you were looking for or not.

    Again, patience seems to not be your strong suit. I don't type all that fast, and it does take me a while to respond.

    Millions upon millions of people still use Blackberry. There's nothing wrong with its fundamentals, and that's what a lot of people need/use, plus all their email is "secure," which is what makes it a favourite with politicians and business types.

    The company is going through some pretty awful mismanagement at the moment (they made the mistake of thinking they could compete with Apple/Google instead of sticking to their core audience's needs), but hopefully they will survive. I like Apple products and have no interest in BB, but the world needs more competition and diversity of ideas, not less.
