    I got a free BB Pearl through AT&T with some online coupon codes and I was still debating whether to just spend the money on an iPhone.

    So far I LOVE my Pearl. It's tiny, does more than the iPhone, has 3rd party support and has tactile feedback.

    the only bad thing about a blackberry is the cost of the blackberry service. If you get it free, then that solves that problem....

    iphone requires a similar data plan, I think it costs the same or it might be $5 less

    I actually got $5 off my BB unlimited data plan for already being an AT&T customer

    BB personal plan is $10 more and doesn't include anyy texts. iphone plan is $10 cheaper and includes 200 texts.

    corporate BB plan is $24 more per month

    Well if you want to spend your money on a piece of techo whizbangery then shell out for an iphone, but if you want a device that actually works, keep the BB
