    What's the best device for a Blackberry user to upgrade to: Android or iPhone?

    I'm ready to let go of my beloved Blackberry. What device would be the easiest for me to transition to? I'm old school and secretly hate technology gadgets and apps I probably won't use. I also need something I can see on a screen and I prefer smaller devices that can fit in my purse. HELP!

    Your best bet is to go for a android Device. Their are a vast array of android operated phones from various cell phone makers and many android phones already comes loaded with the essentials you would need to operate your phone. Plus it is easier to get tonnes of free appz on your android device than a iphone.

      Really? I didn't realize that. Would have thought the iPhone had more versatility. I just need something to attach the Square for clients to pay conveniently. Thanks, Clive.

    I had a BlackBerry in the past and I switched to iPhone then Android and now I am back to iPhone. I was worried about the transition as well in the past but I actually fell in love with the iPhone. The only reason I went to android is because I wanted the bigger size screen that the galaxy had. I found that I liked better on the iPhone and over all it is just a cooler experience.

    I suggest going to stores and looking at the sample ones so you see the size.

    Hope that helps!

    I have owned both the Android and iPhone; and in my humble opinion the iPhone is a better device because it is both functional and easy to use.

    I prefer Android over IPhone. I tried the IPhone but went back to to a Galaxy Note. Android is more versatile and easier to use. Also most of the power cords are universal. In my opinion IPhones are overpriced and offer less than Androids.
