    I don't think I'd use WiFi all that much. One of the reasons I went with Verizon is because of the fast network. I was with T-Mobile and they sucked.

    And gas prices are $2 a gallon today but they might be $4 in 2010. What does that have to do with owning a Storm?


    Welcome to Storm ownership!

    talk about being a buzzkill!

    Welcome to the forum. Heads up if you have any questions. I would always try to search in the storm forums before posting any questions concerning your phone (b/c I am sure you will have some). It will just save you from some grief and aggravation of getting flamed. Enjoy the storm.

    Your prolly going to pay to much going to Best Buy I would suggest getting things here on Crackberry or at Amazon, at least then you can read what other people thought of the product before you buy it.

    Welcome,
    I used to use screen protectors but found them a waste of money.
    I haven't used one in over 2 months and the screen still looks great, and feels much smoother without.

    It matters what you want for a case or protector. There are so many variations (sleeves, full covers, full covers with a flap, rubber cases, platics, sleeper magnet) you name it and i'm sure someone can find a case for you. I would avoid going to the store to get a case. Check the crackberry store, they have a better selection of cases. The 3 cases you will get a lot of feedback on are...
    1. seido innocase I&II, i prefer II
    2. Otter box (provides the most protection for the phone, its a case and screen protector but a bit large.)
    3. Vaja cases (look very sleak and are hand made, but will cost alittle more about $90 I believe, but you can search the forum for some discount codes which will drop the price a bit.)

    do a search on the forum for each of these for a better description and review.

    Edit: I should probably add that I have never used a case and haven't had any issues with scratching or denting. I do have the factory screen cover on still, but will probably be taking it off b/c it looks horrible right now. The factory screen protectors get alot of a scratches on them. On my first storm (this is my 3rd) I never used a screen protector and never had any issues with it.

    Check out the innocase I or II on the SEIdio website. I have the II with the holster. Good combo. I just use the verizon screen protector. They are decent and last. If you don't want a skin on it get the seidio holster for no cased storm.
