    Almost the same boat as you Sooks. Got the last black 32GB and the lady behind me was upset but settled for the last white one they had. My weather app is doing the same...just searching. I also have a Bold I will switch to when and if I get tired of the iPhone. Gonna miss Verizon's amazing network, but sure do love the iPhone.

    In all honesty , Night and day man , the iphone landscape KILLS the storm... **** you can have a monkey type on the iphone and have it make more sense then what the storm says with us typing on it lol.

    That's what happens when you have a real "touch" screen, not a touch and click screen. I type faster on the iPhone than I do on my Bold, and that's with the portrait keyboard.

    I did the same. Ported out of VZW and picked up a 16GB 3GS this morning. Love this thing! I ordered an unlock code for the Storm tonight and may swap the sim if I need a change for a day (if that's possible).

    Yeah I wish it had multitasking for 3rd party apps. But I paid the 9.99 for beejive (which costs more on blackberry) and I still get push notifications when someone sends me a message. Also, download the "Weather Channel" app. It's way better than the one that comes on the device.

    True this , but let me say brother, you add multi-tasking on this phone and you have a golden phone.... I type about 5 times faster on this phone compaired to my storm and my 8330 , honestly i just love it .

    He can also jailbreak it (coming soon hopefully) and get install backgrounder to have apps run in the background. I never needed it, so it doesn't bother me.

    Multi-tasking exists in the built in apps and that's all I need.

    I'll tell you why you didnt switch sooner...it just came out today...
    lol.. I had the iPhone 3g before the storm. It was great but i missed the blackberry since i had the 8300 for a couple years prior. Got the storm in feb, its been good to me so far.. no complaints... anyway good luck w/ the 3gS.

    I had a Pearl, the Curve and then I bought the Storm. I had it for a week and hated it. The only good thing that I can say is that the large screen was stunning. I went back to my Curve.

    I got an Iphone 3GS today and it is incredible. I can type just fine on it, too.

    I have no complaints about how fast the iPhone runs..

    even my pre 3gs model ran really really smooth no doubt at all.. I completely agree with that..

    but thats why I would pick a pre over the iPhone at this point if I was choosing between the two..


    I mean I am not typically a person to bash the iPhone but after a year of use I can tell you all my complaints if you wish... some of which were full deal breakers hence why I don't use it anymore

    but I also go with the idea that people really have to pick the phone that works for them... I don't care if people pick the phone I like I am not selling them I make no profit.. I just give my experience and hope my advice helps someone out..

    I just got hte 32 gb also. I had the 3G before I had my storm as well. I will miss many things about my Storm but the browser is not one of them. I thought browsing on my storm was pretty good but after using the 3GS I realize I was in denial. This new iphone is so fast going to web sites its amazing. And finally, I have tabbed browsing again. I HATED the fact that everytime I wanted to go in another direction on my storm I had to leave the web page I was on. What a pain in the arse!!!!!!

    Will absolutely miss many things about my BB. BBM first and foremost. We'll see, I may be back in 30 days.

    Agreed ! , BBM is by far the number one thing i miss . Well, that and the ablity to multi task , but the speed and smoothness of the browser makes up for both , along with the keyboard and its godly auto correction lol

    Hey sooks, just out of curiosity why didn't you opt or try for the Palm Pre? Or did you already try it and not like it?

    I would guess Sprint is a big reason.

    And the same could be the same for someone else that wants an iPhone. Whats your point?

    People are switching simply based on phones these days it seems, regardless of coverage. Depending on where you live.
