    What phone would you recommend: iphone 4 or blackberry bold 9780?

    I like the blackberry bold 9780 as a lot of my friends have bb's and use bbm. I also like the menu and the QWERTY keyboard. This phone is also good for browsing the internet, however it has a smallish size screen.
    Another option is the iphone 4. This phone has a massive screen, however it is touch. The app store on the iphone is amazing also.
    My main priority is internet browsing and texting.

    If your main priority is internet and texting then go with the Bold 9780 as the it has the physical keyboard and you'll be able to use BBM with your friends. If your main interests are apps and bigger screen, then get the iPhone 4. Although I like the iPhone 4 browser better, the Bold 9780 has a decent browser as it runs OS 6. OS 5 has a horrible browser.

    Both BlackBerry Bold & iPhone4 have instant messaging and e-mail messaging available as well as browsers for Internet pages. The first one uses a Blackberry Browser to enable surfing on the Internet. When it comes to comparing the battery’s life time, a Blackberry’s Bold 9780 battery life for talk-time is up to 6 hours and a stand-by time up to 408 hours; Apple beats its competitors at this section, enhancing the iPhone4 with a battery which enables a talk-time period of 7 hours, but with only a stand-by time of 300 hours.

    One other huge thing to point out is that the BlackBerry has a superior notification system and pushed email service that iPhone doesn't come close to. So if you like your phone alerts and emails to get to you right away, then BlackBerry is the choice.

    I find it so much more appealing to me, cosmetically, performance wise, the features, apps, and graphics have made my life so much easier over the iPhone4, which is very noticable, and believe me, I have tried to understand the iPhone4, it's features and apps.

    As for texting, I find it to be difficult for me because using a touch screen phone seems to take me longer to finish.

    I just love Blackberry's for their e-mail, facebook, twitter, msn, yahoo, and finally bbm notifications is hands down amazing!

    I have personally used both, and to be honest, I just can't live without my Blackberry.

    There is my 2 cents ..thank you

    I've used both as well. And also to mention the secure network you get with a BlackBerry. Which is way ahead of their time in this growing world of cyber criminals.

    If you want a toy, get the iPhone, and make sure to buy an extra charger and a car charger with it.

    If you want a real phone, with the best email functionality, best keypads, best battery life, then get a BlackBerry

    What is it about Opera mini that you like? I've looked at it and I'm just not that impressed with it yet.

    I would recommend the 9780 or the 9900 Blackberry but if you are into horizontal view device with full touch then the 9860 Blackberry will be a good choice.

    Although we are a BlackBerry forum we have to remember that we get questions like this so the user can then use that information to make their decision. He may have asked the same question in a iPhone forum as well, and based upon the answers from each forum will determine how he buys. Let's give him the answer he deserves and what makes us choose BlackBerry over the iPhone.
