Do the research like everyone else here who owns and happy with their BB. Nobody is goingto be 100% satisfied with anything but you have to make up your own mind.
I had owned a flawless Tour for over 2 years and upgraded to a 9930 that has been rock solid. I don't know any other manufacture so to say that Apple is a dictatorship is wrong, what they are is the best selling Smartphone Comapany in the world for so many reasons I am not going to get sucked in and start a list and leave it at that.
Also if more people would use the search feature we would not have so many duplicate threads asking the same thing or topic over and over again. Good luck with your choices.
