    Anyone done the switch?

    How did you handle the transfer of data and contacts? I have a LOT of contacts that I backup using the blackberry software and I also have a lot of info stored on my Memopad too.

    Anyone done this?

    Im thinking ill do it when the 5 is released.

    Have you considered an Android phone? mine (Google Nexus S) had the option to import all data from BB, iPhone and the like.

    The Nexus Prime is due out in the next month or so.

    I've switched two phones from Android (HTC Desire) to iPhone4 recently - pretty straightforward and painless: we had our contacts and calendars on Google, iPhone/iPad just sync with gmail and you're done. Simples! You'd need to create a separate 'account' for Google, on iOS4 I used Exchange, but I believe it is now pre-configured in iOS5, so even less complicated.

    There must be something similar for BB. If not, perhaps you can transfer you data to Google first (as advised by KillerHERTZ), and then to iPhone, as above?
