Phones-blackberry Colt's mommy 1 child; Moore, Oklahoma 21408 posts

I made a post a bit ago about phones with keyboards. I'm looking on att.com and the blackberries all have pretty good reviews. I'm looking specifically at the blackberry bold 9900. I had one blackberry several years ago and hated it and returned it within the week, so that's left a bad taste in my mouth. Lot's of other people I know don't like them either. Have you had good/bad experiences with them? I want a full keyboard, internet with fb/netlfix/pandora and a map of some kind. Those are my main requirements.

Pretty sure blackberry doesn't offer Netflix, and their app selection is very minimal. I loved my blackberry for texting/battery life but they are pretty "behind on the times" as far as smartphones, well phones in general goes.... IMO. I hated touch screens until I got my iPhone. I will never have anything else again!

I've had my iphone for 2 years and I can not type on it to save my life. I even feel like I'm getting WORSE at it as time goes by. I just can't deal with it anymore :(

have you thought about getting a bluetooth case for it so you can have a real keyboard?

Oh no! Well maybe keep your iPhone for Netflix when hooked to wifi then? I loved the simplicity of texting on my blackberry.... but the app store is VERY very limited, I would do some research on that and see if you'd be happy before you decide to get it.
