Glad your daughter is loving her new toy, it's a great product, good choice!
I have a love hate relationship with mine these days.
I am having dropped calls again. It is definitely the iPhone and not AT&T. Having Bluetooth and Wifi enabled seem to play a part in the volume of dropped calls.
I absolutely love all of the other features on it. I've used every other type of smartphone out there and the interface/usability just can't compete. I really hate Blackberries. Android shows promise, but isn't quite there yet for me.
Since I depend heavily on a phone for work, I'm trying to decide whether I want to get a work phone and carry two phones (gay), or switch to a diff phone.
I definitely understand what you're sayin about that. I was very reluctant to switch from my iPhone, but the dropped call issue I was having was no longer bearable.
The Blackberry OS is, of course, not nearly as visually stunning and impressive as the iPhone OS.. but I tell you what... I downloaded a few good applications, engadget, I updated my browser (the default one was verrrrry slow, Bolt just released a new version of their browser for BB and I've found that to be much more speedy), I synced up my google calender and email accounts, as well as added most of my iTunes playlists, and blackberry messenger... and I'm actually really beginning to enjoy it. If email is your thing, Blackberry has really nailed that, and has for some time now. I don't think I've actually typed/responded to an email on my laptop since I've had this phone, it's that
good. And although I didn't mind the on-screen keyboard on the iPhone, it really has been nice to be back to a physical keyboard.
At first, it felt like a "downgrade", and eventhough the Blackberry only has like a 580-something MHz processor, apparently I read that it's like a dual-core type processor and it is very snappy. It doesn't hiccup while multitasking. I text, stream pandora, download applications from App World, and browse the web with really no slow downs. My iPhone 3g was verrrrry laggy, and struggled to do more than one task, and really just opening my text messages took 10+ seconds---not acceptable. It seemed to take forever to do anything on it, and because of that.. I really began to hate it.
This has become a novel, but Blackberry's are constantly being dogged for being "outdated" and behind the times of newer and fancier/prettier devices... but after using it for a few months, it is very productive and runs very well. And it also has PHENOMENAL battery life. I could literally go 2-3 days of heavy usage before needing to give it juice. My iPhone would be at about 50% after about 4-5 hours into my day.
I must admit though, that Evo 4g is looking pretty sexy... and I like where Android is headed. I'm patiently waiting on the sidelines to jump into Android next year. Also, that Apple keynote tomorrow has me pretty intrigued as to what they have up there sleeve.
