So long, flip friends
Made the jump from the 8220 Flip to the 9810 Torch yesterday. I wish BB would have kept the model going, but I had to make the move. The wife called me yesterday with the white screen JVM error, so it was time to dump the Flips. I can't say I like the 9810 - the typing on touchscreen and keyboard make me ill and goes at 1/3 speed - but it is a super fast phone. OS7 has me confused as heck since all the typical setups are in totally different places now. I loathe the easter egg hunts to get the settings correct.
But you can change the touch keyboard to compressed - so the Suretype is not totally gone. So to all you other die-hard Flip fans out there, give the 9810 Torch a test drive and see what you think. Change the keyboard from full to compressed and tell me if you like it.
Device changeover worked like a charm, no issues. But no more one handed typing [sniff]...

More follow-up: I am SHOCKED at the lack of apps available for the 4GTorch. Even the simple ones (Scrabble? really?) are unavailable. RIM, are you listening? Hello?

If you're having trouble finding things you can always use the search function within the menu. For instance, if you're in options just start typing what you are looking for and it will find it for you, such as app or screen or status and so on.
