    LOLS! “My best friend keeps telling me that good friends don’t let friends use BlackBerry” -> anybody I know? :p

    I went from BB to iPhone to Samsung. As an ex-BB user, I wanted the same low data cost benefit, but have all the mod cons of a super toy…And the Samsung ticked that box (although the iPhone did integrate seamlessly with other devices).

      Ha! You have no idea how long Nafisa’s been nagging me to move on 🙂 She’s right though. I need more than what BB can offer.

    Years ago (I think it was 5?) I wanted a slide phone because I never had one and went for a cute Nokia that was on the market at the time. Biggest mistake I ever made and learnt was to never buy a phone based on looks. I literally counted the months down till my contract was up!

    Best phone, well I think has to be the iPhone 4, even though I loved my 3GS. Everything about the 4 was what a phone should’ve been. It’s taken a while to get used to the 4″ screen on the i5 and I’m not ready for a phone with a bigger screen than that. The build quality on the i5 is definitely “cheaper” and it’s beginning to show.

      Not a fan of the iPhone, but wouldn’t decline one if offered…

  5. BlackBerry Q5 – a review | Syllable in the City

    […] The scroll button on my BlackBerry Bold 9790 has been giving me so much trouble lately – my phone will scroll to the top of message threads while I try to type a reply, open apps while I try to open a different apps, and has even called my mother. It’s really rather eerie to watch a possessed phone on your desk while you’re typing away on your laptop. All of this made me think that maybe, after six years of loyal support, I was done with BlackBerry. […]
