I have no idea what to tell you - I am a blackberry addict - other than you made me smile with this post, it is so cute. xv

Yes, I'm, with Vicki A. a Blackberry for me too dear Fifi! And I'm sorry to have to admit that I had one of the first 'Bricks' as pictured back in the early 90's. Except mine was Matte grey, oh so chic - NOT!!!!! When using it in the car you had to separate it in half, the battery went into some huge contraption in the trunk & the keypad half got slotted into a cradle thing on the dashboard - OMG I feel soooo old!!

But I felt so cool - I could finally communicate with my clients without having to dive into a dirty, grotty public phone booth!!

Oh Fifi, I must admit I'm a complete cell phone illiterate. So I can't help you with this! Actually, I don't care too much about phones. But I loved your post, as always, darling!

Cute, cute, post. We still can drive with cell in hand, which I don't and think it should be banned, as in CA. Our daughter lives in Riverside.
Your tablescapes were pretty.

iPhone! iPhone! iPhone! They are the perfect blend of art and science and I cannot imagine life without mine.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving such a nice note! It is appreciated! : )
Also, I loved your portrait for
La Belette Rouge!

Debbie said...

Oh Fifi, I'm so NOT the one to ask this question. I have a very plain and simple(cell) phone and use it only if I need it. I'm so in the dark when it comes to texting. Sure I've had to text hubby in a crunch a time or two at most but I'm so in the dark. I only used the texting once all last year.

However, my step daughter just got the blackberry and she has been known to text 500 + times a month. She LOVES it!

Good luck Fifi! I loved these pictures and your paintings are positively gorgeous!

Blessings - Debbie

Very cute post!

I always pick out the wrong cell phone, mine now is horrible. I will not comment on cell phone choice as to not hex you. ;)

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

Oh heavens, I have no clue either. But this is a cute post for sure. Let us know what you pick.

When I am in the market for new tech stuff I always look to see what Leo Laporte has to say. He IS the tech guy and is on KFI AM every Sunday morning. Here is a link to his latest favs list: http://leoville.com/gear/. On this link he compares Iphones and Blackberrys. He's all over twitter with shows about all the new gagdets. He'll tell you why he loves, likes or passes on the newest stuff out. I hope that helps.

Piper Jacquelyn said...

I truly love them both. I have an iPod touch & a Blackberry phone. I like the Blackberry phone better than the iPhone because I think it's a bit more profesh & classy if that makes sense? It's not full of pretty pictures like the iPhone though....

Becky K. said...

How did we ever manage without these gadgets?

Good luck in your search...we have just the simple old fashioned flip phone.

TRES BELLE said...

Sorry Fifi, I won't be of much help to you either and you know how I feel about texting!

Teresa said...

I would be of very little help- I usually have to drag my adult children along to help me :}
to tell you how sad Iam, I just {like a couple months ago} sent my first txt msg, my children said it was time I learned.
Good luck in your search.

Char said...

I'm so anti blackberry - but I have heard there are many fun things that you can do with an iPhone.

Laura said...

Just wanted you to know that I nominated you for the lemonade blogger award. You're the best.

My kids have iPhones and love them, me I have a very small phone that takes wonderful pics, I can text and place a call...so I am happy with what I have !!

Have a great week-end Fifi

Muffy said...

Oh, this post is lovely! Love that painted lady! Do not get a Palm Centro...I have one and it is very temperamental.

Couture Carrie said...

Oh you have to get an iPhone - they are the best! I am addicted to mine!

xoxox,

P.S. Loooove that pic of Kate and your LBD painting!

Simone said...

i would make a recommendation except that i don't have a smart phone - mine only makes calls and receive texts... however, this post is most charming!

get the blackberry - they are touchscreen as well. i like phones that are flips. can't give it up.

Tamara Jansen said...

I have to buy CHEAP phones because I either drive over them with my car or drop them in the toilet! I'm not good with my cel :)

Arleen said...

Thank you for stopping by my blog today (by way of The Inspired Room) and leaving a comment. I'm a total geek, so I love your post and request for recommendaitions!

I'm with Piper Jacquelyn. I have a Blackberry and an iPod Touch, and I love them both. That combination is the best of both worlds.

If you have to choose one over the other, here is what you might consider. If you want to spend more time emailing / texting, go with the Blackberry (not not the touchscreen models). If you want to do more web surfing, complete with high resolution graphics, then the iPhone is probably the better choice.

I hope you let us know your decision! ~Arleen

Hi Fifi. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I'm in a bit of a hurry right now, but wanted to remind you about our 1st annual Valentine's Day giveaway tonight. Come on by and comment before midnight if you would like to be in the drawing.

Have a fabulous weekend!

La Belette Rouge said...

I love my Shadow. It is small, easy to text with, a powerhouse for email and texting and not too big.

LOVE the LBD painting!

Miss Kris said...

Giggle giggle...Fifi...crrr crackle crackle. Oooo, I have a communication error on my "OLD" cell phone. Silence.

"No idea what phone would be best for you". Me, I'm a simple girl. Just a regular cell phone. But each one you're looking at has so many gadgets, what fun!!! Good luck at communication headquarter. out.

Kelli said...

My Blackberry changed my life. I would certainly recommend BB over iPhone for texting!! Love the photos and your painting!

Pink Heels said...

Crackberry all the way! While I love playing around with my sister's iPhone, I still love my blackberry. I am also a creature of habit as it relates to technology.

parkaveprincess said...

haha, I love all the pictures! and I think a blackberry would be a good choice :)

Mama said...

Hi Fifi, a brilliant post, really enjoyed it. a Blackberry or Iphone?, either one would allow you to communicate beautifully, have fun, Kathy.

dolcechic said...

I love my blackberry. I tried the blackberry storm for about 3 weeks because it was supposed to be "the equivalent" or better than the i phone. Since I'm under contract with Verizon, I thought what the heck, I will try it. I hated it! I hated the touch screen on that phone. But I must say, I love my ipod touch. The touch screen on the ipod touch (which is very similar to the iphone) is wonderful. I absolutely love it. My blackberry does not have a camera, and it's fairly new. I know the iphone has a camera. Good luck with your search. It's always fun getting new gadgets :)

Have fun, and keep us posted on what you get!!! Have a great weekend!

Shelia said...

Oh, Fifiness! Mr. Precious gave me an iphone for Christmas. I know how to answer and call on it - that's all! But the little jacket is pink!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia;)

Renae said...

Fifi, I am having the same conundrum...I want to see what you decide,,,,,I am in northern VA now and got my current phone here and could much easier change phones while here before going back to GA....I keep hmmm-ing and haaaaaw-ing. My friend "Miss Sew it All" swears by her iphone and I think she has me almost convinced...I have had to learn to text because of my college kid! The blackberry and the iphone would definitely be much quicker than what I do now!
Blessings...

WishTrish said...

I don't know... I'm not very cell-phone educated, but I'm interested to see what you end up choosing!

Just dropping in from SITS. L-O-V-E the blog!

A Day That Is Dessert said...

Cute post! I am addicted to my iphone and my husband loves his too.

Messy Jessy said...

Funny post! iPhone all the way.
I have pink cover for mine! So fun!

Callie Grayson said...

I have both, and the iphone IPHONE is the best for blogging post, searching blogs, emails, internet and texts and calls and it's also fantastic for music.

I say iphone.

the blackberry is very had to navigate on the internet and takes forever!!

Your posts are always so much fun! Thanks for the link love. I promise I'll be back with Hooked on Fridays next week! :-)

Kimberly said...

I have had my iPhone for a year now and LOVE it...never want to get another phone. I text, I take pictures (not the greatest quality, but they serve the purpose), I check my email, go online, use the mapping feature for driving directions...LOVE IT!

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

I am an instinct girl...
My message says 'my instinct says that you are trying to get in touch with me.'
BUT, I agree... it is all about what makes you look the best...
Does this phone make my but look big?

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

Oooo, I really want an iphone. Sigh. What a great post! I'm so behind on my reading after Blissdom, it is already time for another post! See you tomorrow? :-) Your posts always make me happy! :-)
