I'd do it. Sell the Bold on ebay, then with the 200 dollars + Bold money, go buy a new iPhone

This depends on what your future plans are. Will you be buying another iPhone or moving to a new phone? Also, if you plan on going to a new phone make sure you enjoy using it. The Bold is very different than the iPhone. Also, the model of iPhone is important too.

If it's an iPhone 3G, that's definitely a good deal. Bolds sell for more on craigslist than 3Gs do. If it's a 3Gs... still probably a good deal.

That depends on whether you prefer an iPhone or a Bold.
What version iPhone do you have?
Exactly. OP, this is a decision you must make, we can only offer our opinions . OP, what version of iPhone do you have?
I have the 16GB 3Gs.

I am torn and not just because of the money.

I have had an iPhone since day 1 (4GB in July) and sort of getting bored with it. I like the looks of the bold and can honestly go without being so attached to it - may be nice to not be playing with the thing every two seconds.

I had the Bold before moving over the the iPhone about a month ago. Long time BB user and miss certain aspects of the device, but I am now using the iPhone more as an entertainment device than I ever did with my BB's and it would be tough going back!

well, here's the deal - I was thinking the same thing.

to me, after 2+ years of using an iPhone, I have felt that maybe an iPod Touch and a regular phone will suffice. it really would be a nice change and I am thinking about going for it!

thanks all!

I dunno, I use my BB way more than I used my iPhone. It's nicknamed crackberry for a reason. BBM will get you.
