    I use it as my default browser, which is configurable in the BB.

    There are a number of settings in Opera Mini as well....so enjoy.

    Stopped paying attention to what the article said when they mentioned texting while driving - stupid habit, ends up getting people killed. Hopefully the laws coming up that make it a stoppable offense will catch on in the rest of the US

    Sorry, had a good friend killed because the idiot in the car behind her was not paying attention and slammed into her car - when the police report came out, it showed that the driver of the cae was exchanging text messages per the cell phone records.

    My most memorable time was going down the road on my Wing, some dork was talking on the cell phone and wandering into my lane, hit the airhorns on the bike and watched his phone go bouncing down the highway in a billion pieces, was one of the high points of that road trip.

    That's a common sense issue - of course it is blatently wrong.

    But the other 99.9% of the article addressed the differences between the 2 technologies, which are real.

    I don't think I saw a response to this one... The forthcoming IPhone 3.1 software update is supposed to include Bluetooth voice dialing. Of course, until Apple releases the update, it's impossible to know if it will truly make it into the final product.

    wing,

    I absolutely agree with you. There are way too many morons that think they can control a 2,000+ lb device while engaging in other activities. I see it all the time on the road and its frightening.

    Just came back from golfing with my buddy - who showed off his new Curve 8900 (T-Mobile)...he's had it 2 weeks and said he wonders how he ever survived without it...:D

    I really like the new keyboard key design. I think I'm tending toward that BB. But to "upgrade" will cost around $299 (I think) out of pocket. There is a $100 rebate, but that will take a while to get. Might have to wait.

    I'm hearing there will be a new pricing promo in September...so you may again see something attractive "soon".

    Perhaps after the Labor Day holiday (unless you get somethign in the mail sooner), you may want to call your provider and ask them about any "new promotion" for BlackBerry in the context of your renewal coming up....

    One thing I don't like about the BB is that I can hardly feel it when it is on vibrate only. My Razr would make me jump when it would vibrate. That looked good in meetings.:lol:

    Since I am qualified for an upgrade, and I have been doing comparisons between the iphone and the new BB Curve, I decided to give the iphone a test run. I do have 30 days to like or dislike, and turn it in for the BB Curve.
    So the hands on testing begins.
    Initial impression: Learning the iphone requires the use of a lot of swear words, and mutterings to myself. So far no one has been hurt, although my wife has enjoyed the entertainment. I did get her one also. She is going from a plain phone...so the learning curve is a bit steeper in one way, but I'm having to unlearn the Curve functions and learn the iphone way of doing things.

    Had a Curve on Verizon and then AT&T. Will never go back unless RIM makes a Web browser to rival the iPhone's.

    It's not just the availabilty of apps that are keeping me an iPhone user, despite its shortcomings. The intuitiveness of the interface -- there's no match for it, graphically -- and the device's increased functionality as a PIM and business organizer are what do it for me.

    The only things I covet about the Berry now is its ability to have multiple profiles and sounds for different events such as email and text messages, and its speaker, which is louder than the iPhone's. But those are the only misgivings I have.

    The iPhone is like a Star Trek tricorder and communicator in one device, and I could never say that about a Blackberry.

    That is a big complaint I have. The Curves phone sound quality is better. Another big complaint I have with the iphone is not being able to voice dial using a Bluetooth ear piece. I use that function with my Curve all the time. For me that is a major feature.

    I just discovered that the iphone does have this feature. I was told by other iphone users, and ATT csr's that one has to hold a button on the phone and speak into the phone. So, that is one major complaint eliminated.
