    I have had the iPhone 3g for a while now and recently got my hands on the new Blackberry Bold 9700. Now I'm torn on which phone to keep using, I can still return the BB but would like some advice if that is the right decision. Below are my general uses for my phone:
    1) Email - like the way gmail gets sent to the phone quickly
    2) Calendar - like the way BB alerts you to new events, can hear the alert if in a different room
    3) Games - what can I say! Can't touch the iPhone for this, that is what is
    making this decision so hard
    4) Today screen - like to see on the home screen what is going on today

    Browsing is not that important since I'm in front of a computer a lot anyways so I can live with the BB browser (they have a new one coming in June)
    The main problem I have with the BB is it is sometimes tough for my eyes to see what is on the screen, guess I'm used to the iPhone sized screen. But on the other hand the battery life is so much better on the BB then the iPhone that I don't have to worry about playing music or a game and my battery draining on me. I know I would regret sticking with the BB and then the new iPhone comes out in June or July and I can't get it. Should I wait and return the 9700 or wait for the new BB browser and rumored 6.0 OS to come out or return it and revisit this in June or July when both new things are out?

    Just wait for the new iPhone to come out and then make your decision. I also have a BlackBerry at the moment and I'm waiting to buy the new iPhone. I find the BlackBerry to be really good for email and I love the BlackBerry Messenger but compared to my iPod touch it's just not as easy and fun to use.

    it's a simple choice if you like the BB get the thing I wouldn't compare it to a 3G though at least a 3gs or wait 3 months. bottom line it's just a damn phone what ever suits your personal needs best!

    Not trying to be a jerk but if you really can't make up your mind on simple things like a cell phone then you're in for a world of hurt.

    Easy answer, get which one you like best. Good luck with this and life.... you're gonna need it.

    Clearly BB is a better choice for you. Email, calendar events, and lockscreen information.

    However, if you're open to the idea of jailbreaking your phone, you can easily resolve all of them, and iPhone becomes the clear favorite.

    Change the sound of your calendar event reminder, add lockscreen widgets to display events, and email is just email with 4.0 improvement on the way.
