    So you are using the Eris as your main device now? You like that better than the S2 like several others?

    You know I value your opinion.

    I have both the S2 and Eris. My business requires me to have email access 24/7 and nothing can compete with the BB in terms of email. So the S2 is the phone I carry around with me at all times. I use the Eris and got it because I like all things technology. The Droid has a very bright future indeed but I have to live in the present. So that being said, I am and will probably always be a BB man.

    I got lucky & all contact fields synced properly. I have to setup all my apps & e-mail accounts but no biggie.

    I dunno, i'm going to have to disagree with the email thing. This is coming from someone who was using the BB Storm with a BIS plan. To put it plainly, Exchange support on a BB using BIS sucks. It is far from being push, I believe the polling interval is 15 minutes. And it had VERY basic support, relying on Outlook Web Access to even work. And even then, it didn't have subfolder support at all.

    On the other hand, my Moto Droid does Activesync via Exchange instantly. The second the incoming message box pops up on the PC, the Droid receives the email.

    The ONLY thing that annoys me on the Droid regarding email is their insistance that Gmail have its own email app that is different from the normal mail app.

    Perhaps you have a horrid BIS connection because my emails come in on 5 separate email accounts before it even hits Outlook. But an email client isn't about just receiving emails its about what you can do with them. Droid's copy and paste is just pathetic. Having to hit multiple buttons to forward email on non-gmail accounts is annoying. And I had to make a quick trip to Canada to visit a client. For some reason I couldn't receive email, oh yeah forgot, no usage allowed outside the US. The Droid reminded me of the iPhone, a nice today, but for the hardcore business user, the BB is on another level.

    So how'd that work in Canada Josh? What service provider did your BB switch to (if I may ask) .
