    I'm bored with my iPhones. I am thinking of getting a new phone. Been thinking about the Blackberry Curve or Touch Diamond by HTC.

    Any suggestions?

    What phones do you have and like?

    I would NOT big a BB, they are just so "bleh" to me, certainly wouldn't hold my interest more then a iPhone(with all its app, I'm sure BB has them, but I've yet to see really great ones)


    Touch Pro or Touch Diamond are great looking, and on a personal note I've always had a soft spot for Palm, so I might get a Centro or Treo.

    Blackberry bold is soon to be released. I hear the screen is fantabulous. Same resolution as the iPhone but smaller, therefore crisper.

    I would get either a blackberry bold or a G1 Google Phone (even though the bottom looks like it is stuck on with Velcro)

    Agreed. Plus I think it's huge and the slide out keyboard isn't all that exciting.

    I agree with whoever mentioned the G1 (Android) phone. Either that, or the new 5800 Nokia touch screen one that just came out. Be interesting to see what they've come up with.

    If you're bored with everything that the iPhone can do, I don't think you'll find the BlackBerry particularly exciting. It kicks butt at email + PIM sync, but IMO, that's about the extent of what it does better than any other phone. Not to say the rest of the features are sub-par .. for the most part, they're not. It's just that they're not really much better than any phone you've used in the last 5 years.

    Waiting for the Storm, and the Experia.

    Every time I read iPhone mentioned with 'enterprise' because it now has Activesync push, I smile because it betrays the complete ignorance of whoever wrote the article (usually some barely disguised Apple fanboy, so understandable in their ignorance). Blackberry still rules the roost, because their handsets / solution is genuinely 'enterprise' ready, as is Windows Mobile.

    Well, I ended up getting a Blackberry Curve, red. I don't care about any storm or experia coming. I just wanted something different to add and still keep the iPhone. I added it onto my family plan. I also found out the company I work for is one that entitles me to the 15% monthly discount plus I added unlimited family texts so all phones get unlimited texts.

    I still love the iPhone, I just wanted some variety here. I can't see using the iPhone for over a year and half as my only phone.
