    Its too much to explain. For one though, you have access to so many great apps which can make your phone a perfect gaming device, perfect MP3/MP4 player, etc.

    iphone all the way!

    I love the iphone. You won't regret switching. The apps are amazing. You will be blown away by the difference in choice of apps and the ease of operating the phone. Texting on it rocks. :D

    Just out of curiosity, why do you want to switch? I have heard good and bad about the torch.

    YES

    I couldn't imagine being without mine, I had the original Iphone when they first came out and upgraded to the 3gs last winter.

    Can't go wrong with an Iphone.

    it depends on what you need. Personally, I definately would, but if you rely on the email functions, keyboard, and bbm of blackberry, then it may be best for you to wait and get the torch 2. If your looking for apps and a great web browsing expierence (minus flash) then go for it.

    It will be easier to say this. The only advantage to having a blackberry is bbm. iPhone wins at everything else by a large margin.

    Insert most things about the iPhone here. They're just... better.

    I used to be a die hard RIM phone user. Tons of phones. Numerous leaked builds loaded. I loved them.

    Got my Droid and never looked back at RIM.

    Then started using iOS a lot (iPad) and I'm a big fan over it (plus the camera is better than the Droid original) so now I'm moving to iOS.

    I'd rank it in terms of ease of use, stability, battery life, etc on phones this.

    iPhone/iOS > Android > RIM

    I hope you didn't come to MacRumors for an unbiased comparison (or CrackBerry for that matter). Obviously people here are going to find lots of great things about the iPhone, and lots of crummy things about BB.

    My obviously biased answer:

    better browser
    more apps
    faster
    ease of getting podcasts
    customer service within warranty period

    Advantages of BB - talking 9700 not Torch

    nicer to look at - hardware and software
    more reliable email delivery
    BBM
    long battery life

    So you are asking advice from a bunch of strangers in the iPhone section on a Apple forum. hmm this will go well. My advice go to the websites, youtube see what both can do. then go to the Cellular store play with both and then decide which you like best. ;)

    Blackberry: Business
    Android: Customization
    iOS: Everyone Else

    (WP7 and other phone OS that nobody else uses are to be covered by this sentence. ;))

    Let's read it the other way around, the only thing that BlackBerry has over the iPhone is BlackBerry Messenger.

    The iPhone is better in every other aspect, you just have to look at it once to know that.

    Wait for the iPhone 5 to avoid "Should I sell my iPhone 4 to get an iPhone 5?" thread.
