|iPhone says, "Su telefono esta ahora listo para recibir las llamadas!"

Yeah, I bought an iPhone.
Same number, thanks to this article. Thanks, Ask! Activated immediately.
No CrashBerry anymore, nor T-Mobile fucking up my MMSes. I'll just live without MMS, like I have for quite some time now. When I travel overseas, I'll bring the CrashBerry.
meh, still waiting for the promised software update which adds all these other features. I am however being drawn closer to an iPhone as I'm going to try to move away from an Outlook/Exchange world now that I'll have IMAP once again.
Good article though!

The good thing about the iPhone: great IMAP client! Compared to no IMAP client at all on the CrashBerry.

Does IMAP still only do top-level folders? Last time I looked into converting to an IMAP structure you couldn't do subfolders, which disagrees with my OCDness when it comes to organization.
IMAP supports subfolders, some servers don't.
The iPhone email client essentially does all the same things that Mail.app does, including subfolders, provided your IMAP server does.
The interface to browsing them is a bit clumsy, for two major reasons. First, it fails to use the initial-letter scrolling on the right side of the screen that, for instance, Contacts uses, but that's true in Mail.app too. Second, the view is hierarchical by way of tabs, but not collapsible (I trust that makes sense?).
Looking at it in Mail.app and on the iPhone, I realize how much of a mess ~/mail has become given that every correspondent/mailing list has its own top level directory... but that's the interface that makes the most sense in mutt(1), which remains my primary MUA, so... ymmv.
Apparently, one of the research projects I'm working on is buying 20(!) iPhones. Supposedly DARPA loves it.

I'm guessing you won't have to carry the Blackberry overseas for long. As soon as AT&T begins introducing the iPhone in Europe and elsewhere my money's on their sorting out roaming agreements and offering a viable international voice and data plan for the iPhone.
I'm not sure they'll do this in time for my next European trip, though, which will be a bit of a drag.
Glad to hear you came to your senses.
I just got back from ~2-3 weeks in Malaysia where I used the old Treo. Oh, the pain.
Even an unlocked iPhone wouldn't really work when traveling as there's approximately zero control over how much EDGE/GPRS data it uses unless you just disable email ... (compared to the treo that's how it feels anyway). (Data is Crazy Expensive on most pre-paid plans in my experience).
