    What are the problems?

    Will most likely be far easier to sort those than to try to talk someone through loading a ROM for another OS (if one even exists for whatever handset it is).

    Android is a better OS and more user friendly than Windows Mobile. Unless there is a SenseUI for the handset in question, it really will be a step backwards. Believe me, I have a WM handset for work.

    You can't as far as I am aware run Windows Mobile on a Blackberry. There is no ROM out there.

    What Blackberry is it, can't remember any out with Android on them yet?

    There is no Windows Mobile ROM that will work on a Blackberry.

    As far as I am aware the 9700 run Blackberry OS 5.0 only and there are no hacks to run either Android or Windows Mobile.

    "I have a friend who..."? Yeah right! :D

    Seriously though, your friend would have a hell of a time getting a different OS to work on a phone that was never intended for it -- the wiser path is to just sell that phone and buy a different one that comes with the desired OS.

    Sorry, just being honest. Good luck.
