Nothing wrong with the Blackberry. A friend once said Apple is "a lifestyle choice". That person works at Apple. Still to this day I don’t know what that means?!

I know it’s each to their own etc. But why oh why can you just not wait a couple of days! What a waste of time queuing for hours for a phone!! So so sad!
