After purchasing a new iPhone about a year ago, I really can't see myself returning to a Blackberry. I don't know a whole lot about the other options. What is the best kind of phone out there?

Blackberry is good in the office environment. PERIOD.

Your best options are iPhone/Andriod. Just one you will pay more for.

I actually have two kinds of phones, an iPhone (4s) for my personal, and a Blackberry for work. I have to say, overall, I love the Blackberry and prefer it. That being said, it is getting a bit older (9810 Torch) and when it comes time to replace it, I don't think I will be getting a new Blackberry. Those I know with the new ones seem unsure.

What I love about the Blackberry is its practicality. For business use, I don't think it can be beat. However it does lack in one major area ... apps. Apps that you can get for the Apple and Android just don't exist for Blackberry which is unfortunate. I have a feeling this will be my last Blackberry, which is probably why I have been holding onto it for so long.

I'm not sure I would get another iPhone though, after seeing my wife's Samsung Galaxy S4 and using Android on my tablet, I think I want to make the move to Android. Time will tell...

I've never really liked Blackberry phones or any Apple products.
I've been using Samsung android versions of phones and tablets for 4 years and won't be switching any time soon.

For a phone/business device my old blackberry 9700 was the best phone I've had to date. I would imagine their newer devices are the same. I have been an android user for the past 2 years and don't think I would switch back. Android devices have the majority of the market share overall.

Brick. j/k :)

None. Wife came with a land-line so I chucked 'er out years ago for lack of need ( #-o phone, not wife), yet people with the same need or less can't seem to do without one.

Mine is a Blackberry but only because it's my work phone and my employer negotiated a lower rate/employee plan. I don't make enough non-work related calls to need a separate one for personal stuff.

We just purchased 2 LG Google Nexus 5 phones. Awesome phones running Android.

Blackberry Torch 9800

Had it around 3 years and love it. The only thing I don't like about it is the time delay for email push, when you are waiting for a reply somethimes that 20 minute delay gets frustrating.

The thing with Blackberry's is that they are tough. Mine's been dropped, lost, fell in a brook and it still keeps going.

I don't use a lot of app's but if I did, then ya the Blackberry apps do suck.

Lost track how many screens the kids broke on their Iphones which is why I am avoiding switching.

Never hold your farts in. They travel to your brain and that's where shitty ideas come from.
