  • Navigation: The Blackberry usually features a small track pad, which is used for most of the navigation of the phone. iPhones have a full touch screen that is used for the full navigation of the phone. The iPhone has four buttons, Home, sound up, sound down, and a locking button.
  • Chat: Blackberrys also have its own chat system where you can find and talk to other people that have Blackberrys. This feature is not found in the factory settings of an iPhone, you need to get an app to do this.
