I Ditched My IPhone

I ditched my iPhone, in favor of a T-Mobile Blackberry 8900. The iphone is sleek toy and superior to the 8900 only its interface to play music and video. Still, I have 16Gigs of memory on my 8900 which will hold much more video for a lower price than the iPhone.

The major downside of the iphone became apparent to me after a few months of use, the very inferior email interface, the lock-in to AT&T service.

Anyone who makes a living based on response time to emailed contacts must agree, the blackberry is a far superior device.

I must disagree with you on this one. I have synched my iPhone to our exchange server and I get all of my work and personal e-mail to it through it. I get my appointments and meeting requests as well. I also get attachments of course. Was there a specific area the iPhone failed you?
I'd be interested to know.

Wow, this is surprising to me. I guess because I have never had any issues with email delivery or the speed if the delivery with the iPhone. Moving from a BB to the iP I was concerned that the email would not live up to BB standards, but I have no complaints.

Plus I can play the flute on my iPone when ever I want!!
