    Here is a video on the difference between the Sprint world phone vs the BB, it's pretty good & he makes some powerful points on why the Samsung is a way better phone.

    I don't think it was a fair comparison especilay using a VZW VS Sprint phones. What i think he needed to do is at least take the Sprint BB 8830 (which has a dual system capability and is also unlocked for using a local SIM (minus the camera which I don't car much for it on any device). I also think he did not portray that the push tehnology on the BB is nuch better than the MS Exchange system.

    Could the make the logo on the Samsung a little bigger so I don't forget which carrier I'm using?

    This actually isn't a fair comparison considering the fact that Sprint carries the same Blackberry World Phone Verizon does.

    Yes, the Samsung ACE is a much better phone, mostly because it's a sort of a CDMA version of the Samsung BlackJack, which itself is one of the best smartphones around.

    I also feel it's hard to really compare a BB to any other phone brand because of what BB's were really designed for in the first place - business enterprise.

    If the BB had Windows Mobile, then it would be more of a fair fight, but the BB OS is an animal of a different kind.

    I should also mention that Verizon has been notoriously quiet in the past regarding their world phones. I can remember when the Samsung a790, SCH-i830 smartphone and Moto A840 were available but hidden on the business side of their site. Only now are they advertising the newer world phones on the main consumer site.
