I've been using the blackberry brand for 2 years now; I started with a curve, and swapped to a bold a couple of months ago. I find this phone fantastic as it means I get my e-mails as quickly as text messages, and am able to respond via my phone. I can also check up on facebook when I'm skiving at work but shh...
The best feature about this phone for me, is the blackberry messenger. This is like chat for your phone, where you can talk to anyone with a blackberry for free.
I also love google maps and vodafone find & go for directions and satnav as I get lost far too easily when I'm driving somewhere new for work.
Other apps you can download (for free) include: ebay, msn, calorie counters, games, and many more. Not as many as an iphone from what I've heard, but enough to keep ya busy.
Internet on the phone is good, but often struggles to load sites containing 'flash'.
Battery life is the problem with this phone...mine dies in the night and as such I've had to stop relying on my phone for an alarm clock!
