How? Why? What proof do you have of this or is it JUST your own opinion? or have you done this to add yet another post to your post count?

Have BB Torch. IMO BB mail handling is second to none but I'm thinking of going back to an Android phone (prefer it for browsing the internet)

Nokia C1-01, and Nokia N900 (used only as a mini-computer).
P.S.
Be careful buying an iPhone 4S:

I have a Samsung Admire it's a decent phone.

If I had the money I would have bought either the Samsung Galaxy S II or Google Nexxus S

I would have gotten any of those two phones but the provider wanted a two year contract. I'm not a big fan of buying a phone with a contract. I prefer no contract or unlocked phones.

I'm with Koodo in Canada was was fortunate enough to have built up a good chunk of credit on my 'tab' (they calculate 10% of each bill and add it to the 'tab' as free money, so you can dip in -$150 to buy a phone and accumulate up to +$150 in credit, the only 'contract' is that if you decided to quit them you have to pay off the remainder of your 'tab' if it is a negative balance, otherwise you just tell them to stop billing you and they cut you off) since I bought my first phone (cheap flip phone) outright. So I managed to knock off nearly half the price of the phone.

im using HTC Desire Z, main reason was "hardware" keyboard, my first smartphone and im very pleased with it.

edit: pricetag was 350e, pretty much for a phone but it has been worth it. phonebill is about 15-20e month with unlimited data.
edit2: only negative thing that i can think off is battery life, irc, net surfing and sometimes movie watching eats the battery radically.
