- All of my email accounts work perfectly on my Storm. And I have a computer for saving all of my email messages. There is no need to keep every email conversation I have ever had on my phone.
- The movies I have saved to my Storm work just fine. No memory problems.
- There isn't anything that I need to do on my Storm that I don't have control of. And do you really think that Verizon gives you full control of your Droid?
- I type faster on my SurePress keyboard than I did on my 8830 WE.
- My Storm is running great. No need for an upgrade. I have never shrunk and OS and have never wiped my device.
And I can't remember the last time I had to do a battery pull.In bad need of a QNX Storm 3.

As for the OS update, I am not sure what you are getting at. BB fixing errors is not a good thing, FYI. And with all the hybrids/leaks/etc, it doesn't look like BB is doing a good job at that. Maybe BB sould actually improve upon exisiting functionality (of course that may involve shucking Java) .

B) Really, isn't our own opinion of our phones all that matters. If you have a phone because it is what everyone else says you should have then I feel sorry for you. No lying to myself, I really do love my Storm.In bad need of a QNX Storm 3.

Also, can you tell me one piece of software on the market that doesn't issue updates to address bugs and add improvements. Pretty sure that is a good thing.
And I am pretty sure that the whole reason this thread was started was because someone "rooted" their Droid. If there is a need to hack the OS then I am not so sure that Google is doing such a great job of putting the best OS out there.In bad need of a QNX Storm 3.

There is no reason to root the Droid. Mine is rooted only because I did the 2.0.1 update myself instead of waiting, otherwise I haven't touched anything else in the OS.
As for your second paragraph, yes that is a good thing, no I don't know of anythign that doesn't do that,(Edit: -deleted text- I see you were making a response to a previous statement) AS for the problems they are having on ACentral, I don't know as I don't visit there but I would be hard pressed not to thing a lot of them are trying to hack their phones??? am i right?

I C, well I don't know much about Android 1.5 or 1.6 or basically anything lower than 2.0 which seems pretty solid to me. There is no doubt that phones have pros and cons for enyone, which I think has been said here many times, especially in this forum now that Android has been released.
To the OP, did you figure anything out? Do you have insurance on the Droid? I would replace it if suggestions haven't turned out for you.

****, on a BB you cant even access the internet without going through RIMs proxy.
I would hack the **** out of a BB if it was possible, because there are tons of things I would add to it. Just because the BB OS can't be hacked, doesn't mean that RIM made the OS perfectly feature wise. It is far from perfect. That's why a lot of people are moving away because they want something new.
It's version 5.0 and it has looked the same since 2.X, if anyone doesn't see a problem with this then there is something wrong.

When I was with AT&T, I would hack the heck out of Moto Razrs and Krzrs, not because they were not good phones, but because I could. I could customize them to my liking and have something else to choose from in regards to icons, fonts and the such than the selection the Razrs that weren't hacked that my friends had. I certainly don't think that is the right thing to say that "if people are hacking it, then it must suck, or isn't the best" but usually those people don't hack or don't know the background of hacking into phones.

You have a BB Storm...
You use it as a phone....check.
You have an amazing proprietary device (called a micro SD card)
that allows you to watch movies when inserted......check.
You use your BB for email.......check...
Any other uses for your BB besides these items that scream rudimentary?

puppets/muppets and grandiose delusions due to an overabundance of LSD usage
Do you really think people are rooting their droid phones because there are so many issues surrounding them?
Pretend to think for a second....
Perhaps these people want 2.1 functionality because it boasts features they themselves want.
WHY would these people want them?
-They want/need the latest thing? Granted, it's their right.
-They want a better image gallery widget and love 5 home screen...check.
-They feel Google jipped them by giving them an obsolete OS only to have future phones have a newer OS.....(this cannot sound like BB because they've used the same tired-poopy OS known to man)

Wow, this got way off topic. I didn't mean to start an epic debate.
In response to the people that tried to help, thank you. I don't run a task killer or home replacement app either. Phone is running great again, maybe it just had the 48 hour flu =)
