I posted this over at the other site and did not get much play. Here goes over here. You guys were always much more helpful back in my hybrid days with the old Storm.
Okay, I am probably the complete opposite of many with this question. First here is the background. In 2009 my company discontinued blackberries and went with iPhones and EAS devices to cut cost. I used a berry for 5 years up to that point. I have had this iPhone now for about 10 months and I do like most of it's features. Ultimately I find I was more productive with the berry and the physical qwerty. So here is my question:
Should I get a berry (9700) again? I'm thinking most would say yes but there are caveats. First, I have to stay on the iPhone data plan. My company owns my number and bill so I could not change it. This means I would have to run something like Notifysync for my email. From reading about it, Notifysync seems to be a great solution. Also since I would not have a berry plan, I would lose BBM. No big deal really as no one at work uses it either. Finally, I wonder if all my apps would work? I am guessing most would through normal data as ling as I configured them that way.
So I hope you can see my dilema. Originally I was looking at other qwerty devices but none are as solid as a berry. Let me know what you think. If I missed anything above let me know. If you have any experiences that can offer pros or cons let me know. TIA.
