Hey guys, I'm up for a new phone and deciding between an iPhone vs. BlackBerry Storm 2. I'm currently using an older BlackBerry for work. I'm tempted to switch to AT&T to get an iPhone, but worry about the compatibility with my work stuff (I know the iPhone can link up with my work's network). Suggestions? Comments?
So, this would not be your corporate device?
Meaning your personal device used on the corporate network? I would check with your IT guys or somebody who has iPhone on the corp network. Very few orgs support iPhone as a corp email device for a few reasons (encryption and data security is the biggest of them). There are several companies that are trying it out and opened up, but it is at about 5% penetration (I would guess).
I have a few colleagues that switched to iPhones from BB's and the biggest complaint (other than a few weeks of getting used to typing) is that the battery life is really low compared to the BlackBerry. On the flip side they would not switch back. I am still on the blackberry as I don't see much value in Apple's apps (have not found a killer one yet) and only use my device for email and phone. (That is of course because I am not studying for GMAT anymore and can't use GMAT Club's Apple apps
