And I can't believe you even compared overall storage space. Sure the iPhone has more "app storage" than BBs do, no argument there, but you can add MicroSD cards to Blackberries for virtually unlimited storage of movies, pictures and audio.

This also addresses your second point - I have few 3rd party apps added, it was the data in the native PIM that was too big for the Storm 1 to handle. And no, I'm not interested in changing my working style to suit a flawed device.
As for the Storm 2, it just has more memory but same flawed memory model, so if I use it long enough it's gonna puke too.

2) Based on my experience, any software or hardware that deletes user data without warning is seriously flawed. Absolutely, positively - if it does it, it's performing unacceptably and the developer should be shot.
3) I deliberately discounted the MiscoSD cards as you can't run apps from them, install apps to them, or store important data like PIM data. Since it's so limited in use, it's just a "nice to have" and the iPhone gives you 32GB to do with as you please.
Sorry, my points stand.

The memory allocation and usage has been improved from one device to the next.

Your comments reflect what I'd believed of Berries before I bought one. That is the kind of experience I'd expected. Unfortunately I was seriously disappointed.
Maybe that's the reason there are so many flame wars on here. Some people have your kind of experience, others have mine. And neither side fully understands - or believes - the other. Maybe one of RIM's issues is consistency.
To directly address one of your points, I'm afraid I don't fully believe the memory allocation or usage were improved from Storm 1 to 2. There is simply more memory there, giving users a larger buffer before they hit the wall. Perhaps the memory leak issue was fixed somehow, but that's as far as I'd go. Sorry, that's just the truth of it. I'm willing to be convinced otherwise, but it would require detail and substantial, factual evidence as it contradicts much of the information I've read to the contrary.
