Planning to upgrade from 9550
My Verizon upgrade eligibility comes in January and I plan to go with the 9850. (Would love to find a hook with VZ and be able to get it NOW. Any hints?)
Anyway, I thought I would share that I am an Apple guy on my 6th mac notebook (since a G3 Lombard), plus an iPad. I also flirted with a droid for a month before I reactivated my 9550. I'm staying with the RIM brand mostly because of messaging reliability. Apps just aren't a huge thing for me, but connectivity is. Besides, my Storm 2, even for its antiquity, is a fine media player and syncs perfectly with my Macbook Pro. I also keep my contacts and calendar synced with Google. RIM may have it's challenges with staying competitive, but I'm staying with Blackberry.

A bit of a learning curve going from OS5 to 7, but you're gonna like it a lot. I've had the whole Storm line. The web browser is a DREAM compared to OS5!! I actually enjoy using it now. Web browsing on my Storm2 was an exercise in frustration and not worth the hassle. This one is snappy and fun to use.

Same here...Storm 1 to 2 to the new Torch 9850. Unlike most I still enjoyed my Storm, but the newer, faster and just plain better 9850 will make you feel like you bought an upgrade and not just another phone. It's not perfect but it is a big improvement over the Storm just from a specification standpoint. Operationally, it is night and day difference.
