    who says you're shooting yourself in the hand?
    No one did. But if you were right handed you'd find it difficult to shoot yourself in the left side and vice versa. You obviously didn't watch BBC's Sherlock Holmes last week, tut tut.

    Which is best really?
    I know its all down to personal preference but I have heard very conflicting things so far. Its almost a 50/50 split.

    I've never had a Blackberry or an iPhone and would really like to know what people think of either one.

    I'm changing contract providers (O2 to Orange) and I want to make the most of my money.

    Does any one have any idea which would be the better phone?

    Thank you
    The Blackberry is designed for business-use. You can do a lot of cool* things with it that you can't do with your iphone - in particular, you can open excel and word files and link them in e-mails.

    As others have said, the iPhone is an all-rounder and better for students, in my opinion.



    *well, cool for geeks.

    What hand you shoot with doesn't make it clear what side you should shoot.

    Anyone advocating BBM as a reason to get a bb is a bit slow. Get unlimited texts then youve got BBM to any phone. The iPhone is about 3 times as good as the best BB, and I can say that having used both, and having owned older versions of both

    I have a Blackberry and I love it. But I honestly don't understand all this fuss about BBM. How the hell do I use it? haha
    I haven't read on to see if anyones commented on your post but its really simple honestly!

    When you go on BBM you just need to add some contacts using their BB pin.. you can find your BBpin on BBM if you go to 'My Profile'

    I would say Blackberry as I love mine (I have the Storm2)..one of my friends had the iPhone and she loved it but I really didn't..I think if you're into just playing on games all the time go for the iPhone but if you're more of a emailing/sms/internet person go for a Blackberry.

    The Blackberry doesn't have many apps available yet as they've only just started doing it but once it gets going I think people might go for the BB more than the iPhone...

    Have you considered the Samsung Galaxy S?

    I was in the same spot as you a little while ago, trying to decide between an iPhone and a blackberry but I discovered the Galaxy S and I love it!

    I've had both, and prefer the bb. I guess it depends what you're looking for though, but the bb was perfect for me.

    How'd you figure that one? My above explanation still stands.

    There is no preferred side, related to which hand you use.

    I'd go with the iPhone, I had a BB and would never go back now. If a lot of your friends have a blackberry you could still talk to them over their BBM if they have whatsapp.

    If I asked you to cover your left ear would you use your right hand or your left? Left side; left hand.
    If you shoot right handed then it'd be very difficult to shoot yourself in the left side.

    Being a certain handedness isn't significant guidance to what side of the body one would shoot. What handedness do you refer to? Writing? The use of fire arms? The difference in effort required to shoot one side as opposed to the other with a preferred hand is negligible.

    The Storm is a disaster of a phone, even RIM have left that rubbish behind.

    Eh? Who mentioned writing? Of course I mean the use of fire arms, that's like asking someone who is at dinner eating ravenously if they're hungry.
    Negligible? Have you not heard of kick back? If you use an inexperienced hand to fire a gun awkwardly you will probably break the wrist of said hand.

    That would only apply to a subject knowledgeable of gun mechanics, hardly enough of 'em for it to stand.
