This is just to silence those people who think the blackberry even compares to the iPhone.

Things they don’t tell you when you go get a new phone or upgrade:


  • That the free internet you are getting on a Blackberry is costing you R60 a month and is only free for downloading mail and applications that use the internet. If you actually go onto the internet you WILL get charged.
  • If you get a blackberry you will be called Strawberry Boy.
  • If you get an iPhone random people will come up to you and ask about your phone. You WILL become an opinion leader in the phone industry.


If you think I have left anything out or duplicated something let me know and I will make changes.
