    Hey guys well like the title says im trying to chose between a blackberry or the iphone. I can get either for Christmas. Right now im kinda leaning toward the iphone just because i have a itouch and its always been real fun. What are yalls opionions on both and which one should it be? Oh yeh and the blackberry would be the new curve.

    depends on what you use it for. My BB is 99% used for work and the email management on the the BB is way better than the iphone IMO. the I phone kicks BB ass for everything else.

    I am 100% happy with my blackberry tour. I have never really been a fan of the touch screen phones. Everyone I know that had either one is pleased with both.

    I currently have a Blackberry but the OS is kinda primitive IMO. As soon as I get out of my contract I'm getting the iPhone.

    Yeah no problem but BB kicks ass with managing outlook and meeting notifications and when you add contacts to your outlook on the computer the BB is automatically updated and vise versa. But thats the only thing its good for is managing work crap.

    Would never use outlook or have meetings i need to know about on my personal phone. Another reason the iphone is winning is because once i become account manager at my work (in like 2 yrs) then they give me a BB. So i can alteast have fun with a different phone until then. Just checking for you guys personal opinions.

    also i would probably just get the iphone 3g instead of the 3gs bc its only 99$. Does it make that big of a deal?

    I have both. Storm2 and iPhone 3Gs.

    If I could only keep one, I would have to say it would be the iPhone.

    Make sure you get a 3GS - the 16gb 3GS is only 199 - 100 more than the $99 3G - it is much faster, better battery life etc - and will have a much better resale value down the road... the 3G is coming up on 2 year old tech now - the 3GS is 6 months old.
