What should I get – iPhone 4 or Blackberry Bold?

I send loads of txts and use Facebook loads and sometimes make calls. Should I get an iPhone 4 or a Blackberry Bold?

Unless you're into the whole apps-craze I would suggest you go for the Bold (which one by the way?). The Bold has a much much better battery life, Facebook is well integrated, and no matter how great an onscreen keyboard is, for serial texters nothing beats a BB keyboard - recently my Desire HD had a booboo, and I switched to an old Nokia E71 and then a Bold 9780...the pleasure of reacquainting myself with proper typing!!!
On the other hand, iPhone 4 is not the worst touchscreen battery offender; the camera is better than on the Bold, and no matter how much I hate the appstore-mania, some apps (incl those for FB) are undeniably great! Also, resale-wise the iPhone 4 is a better investment (I just saw a 6 wks old, mint BB Torch go for Euro 280)

Yeah, I agree. From the sounds of it, you'd be better off with a Blackberry bold with a nice Qwerty keyboard.

Hey i have an iphone 4 and i have a blackberry bold but i honestly think that the iphone is better it has been voted the best fone in the world and i have never regret getting it plus c the ppl tht say tht a blackberry is better than an iphone if it was better the blackberry would cost more than an iphone 4 but my iphone cost 750 pound and my bold cost 334 pound and with the apps on the iphone that is a good thhing because tghe apps are the best part so if i were you i would get an iphone

I've had both phones. Still got my iPhone, however, I'm one that doesn't use text speak, and I don't really like having to put all my e-mails through a 3rd party server (ala blackberry)

How's BB's servers worse than vodafone's or o2's or ... Because they have better encryption? ;) ???

Would recommend iPhone. BB OS 6 is very handicapped destroying really good hardware. RIM announced that OS 7 will not run on existing handsets makes everything available by RIM a dead end.
