Not sure what this means...? I never stated that the iPhone is perfect, far from it.
not saying bb is any better, but i like the keyboard and the fact that i can use it anywhere in the world and carry extra battery if need be and have extra memory cards so not really limited t 32gb and i don't really use it for media anyway so i don't need more than 4gb because it's a phone/email device not a toy to keep myself entertained with until the next iteration is released with same specs but 2 more megapixels in the camera and an exclusive addition to software that's just voice recognition repackaged ...
Who gives a shit what you personally like? Or what I personally like? What matters is comparison of specs, period, and not your (or anyone else's subjective personal needs).
You can keep calling the iPhone a toy (and I assume that if I bring up the Droid Razr, you'll call it a toy too), but you are just using empty words.
he fact that I have to answer the following tells me that you don't have a solid grasp of what we are discussing:
can you use your device anywhere in the world ?
Yes... it's quad-band, just like every other high-end smartphone that uses GSM.
can you use it with different carriers out of the box ?
Yes, if you buy an unlocked version, depending on GSM or CDMA, or if it's locked, you have to use it with a specific carrier, EXACTLY like every other phone purchased through carriers in the US.
can you use all features of bluetooth ?
IDK what 'all features' means, but yes.
can you use it as usb storage out of the box ?
Again, not sure what this refers to.
can you use it with any (unlimited) number of computers running different operating systems without having to use proprietary software to upload songs ? can you transfer songs off device using that proprietary software ?
Nope, closed system. Can you access BB email without having to go through BB's servers? Nope. Why? Closed system.
can you use any usb (mini or micro) to connect it ?
can you replace battery / carry spare ?
No, it's def a drawback of the iPhone.
can you carry multiple storage cards in case memory fills ?
No, instead we have the iCloud so you don't have to carry anything extra.
can you get something not located on a tightly-controlled server without going through the trouble of risking your device in trying to hack it and open up ?
Not sure what you mean... dropbox (and lots of other 3rd party apps) let you store things on the phone and none of the items have to go through Apple...
