I have over 300 contacts all on mobile backup, would I lose any part of these contacts, if I changed carriers. Currently I have AT&T and I would truly hate to find some or all of them missing the next time I do a backup.

I've moved on from blackberry a long time ago. There apps are sub-par and there devices are sub-par. The only bonus on blackberry's is the older ones got very nice battery life compared to my droid now :(

It is not a toy for kids with a lot of funny apps, designed specially to entertain people that have nothing to do.. It is a device, a very good one, that helps grown-ups doing their bussines. So..

Are you a doctor? Because I thought in med school they teach you the difference between their, there, and they're. If you didn't pick it up in 5th grade. Thanks for sharing your brand preference tale when the discussion is about a completely new device and its (not it's) particulars. Now go play with your Droid and turn that frown upside down.
