    Cause blackberries have better keypads.
    Really? I've used several blackberry's since my friends have them and I honestly can't type on them, I have pretty big hands being a guy but still find them awkward as ****.
    Seems to be a split in my group that the girls have blackberry or HTC phones and the guys have iPhones..

    Also I honestly thought that iPhones and android phones were the trend atm (and can definitely be seen by all the "android and iphone are better!" bunnies on this thread who are criticising people with a blackberry for jumping on a bandwagon). Maybe that's just because I live in London, but yeah, i know few people with blackberrys now.

    I think they're all good phones, I just chose my blackberry when android wasn't as well-known and I can't afford an iphone.

    I'm sort of an anti comformist at times so hate following the crowd. So when everyone jumped on the 'bb hype' thing I bought an Iphone and always swore I would never get a blackberry instead.

    1-2 years later and I now stand before you with my blackberry storm 2 I got like two weeks ago (atleast I bought the best one lol). The Iphone is alot better though the only attraction for a bb is blackberry messenger, it really does it make it alot easier to stay in contact with people.

    tbh i really wanted the BB storm2 i dunno why but i really wanted it.....plus my mum pays my phone bills on t-mobile so if i decided to go for the iphone i'd have to go with o2 because at the time they were one of the few who had decent tariffs with the iphone......however i love my BB and i don't think i could trade it for the world.....

    I've had this phone for almost a year and i haven't had to sent it back for any problems unlike the curve and bold that every one has, where practically every1 i know has sent theirs back for repairs or whatever...
    I got this too a few weeks ago and although I think my old Iphone was better in a lot of thing I do love this phone!

    Dont you just love the feeling of the touch screen when typing?!

    Yeah, but if you're bored you can just start chatting on BBM with whoever is "online" or just updated his status.
    An sms is more direct - you need to have something to say ...

    And not everyone has unlimited texting

    This post is full of lol.

    1. You hate following the crowd yet you bought an iPhone :facepalm2:
    2. You were stupid enough to buy a BB storm :facepalm2:
    3. You think the Storm is the best BB, it's quite frankly one of the worst phones released in the last few years. Total flop, RIM has abandoned it.

    4. Yes on a GOOD touchscreen.

    To close the Storm is a joke of a touchscreen phone, if you're going to go BB at least go to what they're good at, i.e. the Bold 9700.

    But to be fair it's pretty uncommon now to not have unlimited texts even on PAYG!

    It's not really a question of conforming - the Blackberry experience gets better the more of your friends that have one. Sure, there are other messaging platforms and I use whatsapp to communicate with some of the "iPhone Elite".

    The HTC's are cool but the Desire was not out when I got my BB and the HD is simply too big. The iPhone 4 is also a brilliant phone, but it was in a whole price category above my Bold. Would have cost £17 a month more plus £89.00 for the phone. Couldn't justify it.

    More of my friends have unlimited texts than have a blackberry. And you don't need something specific to say when you text someone. Me and my gf text each other random stuff all the time .
