To Blackberry or to iPhone?

Ok, so I know this debate might seem crazy to some of you iPhone lovers, but I'm due for a phone upgrade in July, and I cannot decide which phone to get! 


Right now, I have a Blackberry Curve, and although some people hate theirs, I absolutely love mine! I tend to be a little rough on my phones, so I love that this one has been pretty unbreakable for the past 2 years. The only negatives would be the slow internet and lack of apps.


Most of my friends have the iPhone, and honestly, I'm not dying for one, but I feel like I might need a technological upgrade! I love all of the apps for the iPhone, but if I decide to get it, I'm going to have to get an ugly case so it doesn't break when I drop it multiple times a day.

What do y'all think I should do? Did any of y'all abandon your Crackberry for an iPhone? I'd love to hear your opinions! Have a fabulous day!

  1. I abandoned my crackberry about four months ago, and never looked back! Just the slow Internet alone killed me! Trust me, get an iPhone! You won't regret it. I broke my blackberry last summer, and went back in and got another blackberry bc I liked mine so much, and I remember the guy working there looked at me like, why are you not getting an iPhone?? He even asked me that! Well, not even a week later I tried to go back and exchange mine and they said the time had passed for me to exchange it. So, anyway, this spring, I got to get one, and am in love with it! Good luck with your decision!!

  2. I just switched a few months ago from my Blackberry to an iPhone and at first I missed it a little bit but now I'm obsessed! I really recommend it. It's so much faster. I'm pretty gentle with my phones but have dropped it a couple of times (pretty hard) and it's been completely fine. They're pretty sturdy. I just recommend getting the insurance and you won't have anything to worry about! Good luck!

  4. I'm stuck with the same dilemma right now. I have a love-hate relationship with my Blackberry, but I think I have been persuaded to go with the new iPhone when it comes out in September/October. I'm just planning to wait to upgrade until then. :)

  5. I recently upgraded to an iPhone. I'd had a droid for 2 years and loved it. I thought I'd get another one, but the new droids were huge and just did not strike me. I ended up getting the iPhone and now I LOVE it.
    Otterbox makes a good protective case and there are places you can get them in preppy prints with monograms. ;)

  6. I'm due an upgrade too and I'm thinking about getting an iPhone. I just love the Cloud feature-my calendar on my Macbook will wirelessly sync to my phone. Plus they have so many cute cases for them!

    I have an android and I advise you to STAY AWAY from them! I've had so many problems and they're so glitchy.

  7. iPhone would definitely be my pick! I was a blackberry lover as well until I got mine and I could never see myself going back now that I have the iPhone, honestly it is just more convenient. I was also worried about dropping mine but so far I have been just fine! The Kate Spade hard shell cases worked great for me. Good luck!

  8. I had a blackberry and then an iPhone. I love my iPhone so much more...more features, apps, a cute case, and it's so easy to use!

  9. I abandoned my Crackberry for an iPhone and it was such a good decision! The iPhone has way better apps, internet speed, and efficiency. It is more of a "computer" phone to me. You won't regret it!

  10. I upgraded to an iphone 2 1/2 weeks ago from a crap berry. I haven't looked back. The keyboard on the iphone takes some getting used to but overall I love it. The app variety is great. I had practice using mine...I have an ipod touch as well.

  11. I like BB phone but have an itouch for its camera and apps.

  12. I went from a blackberry to my iPhone. I wouldn't go back (even though the only problems I had with my blackberry were how slow it was, and when it'd freeze up), but I do miss having an actual keyboard.

  13. I've had serious issues with every Blackberry model I've tried. Right after the battery in my last Blackberry curve imploded, I was DONE! I got an iPhone and I've loved it. I take advantage of the apps way more than I ever did on my Blackberry and it's so convenient to sync with my other Apple products. Granted, EVERYONE has an iPhone, but now that I've switched I understand why. Definitely opt for an Otterbox: it's a lifesaver.

  15. I actually got my very first smartphone almost 2 months ago...I loved my old flip phone, it worked great and had no desire to upgrade. I ended putting my phone through the wash and went with a Blackberry as my new phone. I've only had it for 2 months and am still learning how to use it.

    I picked a Blackberry over an iphone because I liked the keyboard...not a fan of touch screens. Also, they say that Blackberry is aimed at business people and that appealed to me as well.

  16. I have a android (Samsung galaxy SII) and I really like it. I had a blackberry before this and wasn't a fan... i like a nice pretty screen :) It's a big choice though... it's crazy how much you use your cell, ya know!?

  17. I have both - blackberry for work, iphone for fun!

    I prefer typing on a blackberry, but nothing compares to the apps on an iphone.

  18. I have the iPhone, and I drop it daily. It hasn't cracked or anything. I have a basic case--not and Otter box. I think it's wonderful. MY SISTER HOWEVER drops hers, and it always cracks. She got an Otter box, and it's great! I think you should get the iPhone for sure!

  19. Ah! I have the same dilemma. Let us know what you end up doing :)

  20. I am glad to know I am not the only one with the similar problem. I love my pink blackberry but I really want an iphone for all the apps & the cute cases. I think I may wait until the new iphone comes out in the fall. I will miss the keyboard though! :)
