I switched because I wanted a better internet experience on a large screen. The Evo gives me that and more. Communication services are not as good as BB's but I can live with that because the phone offers so much more. The specs on the Evo are a big upgrade from any BB out there IMO. I have had the Evo since Friday and I am loving the phone. I wish it could have the communication capabilities of the BB but nothing is perfect.

I agree with celeste9000 in regard to ring tones. I moved my personal ring tones to my EVO and I can assign them to a contact but they only work for a an incoming phone call.
On my BB I could assign a personal ring tone to a contact and that ring tone would play when the person sent me a email, text or called. This is my one negative about the phone.
My email accounts are now in sync and if I read it online at work, at my mac at home or on the EVO itself, everything syncs.
When I had a black berry if I read an email on my Mac, it would be unread on my blackberry. It was painful. Also, I love that my contacts and tasks list (using the Gtasks app) sync effortless in the cloud.
