    Give it a chance. There's a big learning curve associated with the Droid and I assume the Incredible is about the same. Once you get the hang of it, you'll never look back. Oh, and welcome to the forum, nky5!

    :welcome:

    Did you really just come to an android form and ask if you should go back to blackberry? haha

    Seriously though, the android OS blows the BB OS out of the water. No comparison, if you ask me!

    Thanks for your response! I'm definitely getting used to it! Wish the droid had some of the apps I had on my bb and itouch.

    What apps are you looking for specifically? You'd be amazed at the amount of resources this forum has. :)

    I love my Droid, I just wish it would handle email like the blackberry. I want to be able to save emails to my phone and not loose them when I delete them from the company server.

    I'm also a BlackBerry to Android convert (2 months now) and while overall I feel Android is a much better and easier OS there are certain stuff BlackBerry does much better than anyone (email, messaging, unified inbox, sound/LED/vibration profiles, etc.), however it's not enough for me to go back.dancedroid:)

    BUT I'm still missing certain features from my BlackBerry and want something similar on my Droid:

    - Ability to sync iTunes playlists w/ Album Art
    - Quickly switching from English to Spanish for the onscreen keyboard
    - Ability to save Email and SMS/MMS messages in a separate folder to view later
    - Berry Buzz or something similar
    - An app like Poynt

    Blackberry vs Droid

    I haven't made the switch yet. I've used BB for years and have cold feet about the change. Any recommendations as to which Verizon Droid I should switch to?
