I had my storn 24 hours before I realised it was the biggest pile of poo blackberry have ever produced. This along with the apparent unwillingness of blackberry to resolve many issue (including the o/s) saw me finally sell the storm this weekend just past.
I'm now searching for an iphone 3g 16gb or looking rather interestingly at the LG arena
until that pops into my pocket I'm using old faithfull, my back up spare phone and old Sony ericsson w810i..I'd forgotten that phones should be used by me and not the other way round
I had the Saga until it bricked on me a few days ago. Now I'm on my Motorola Q9m and getting madder by the day at Verizon Wireless' **** poor smartphone selection. I'm thinking about buying a Curve used but I might as well wait until the "Tour" is out and see how that is.
The Palm Pre looks great but I really don't want to switch carriers. I still don't understand why Verizon doesn't have a killer smartphone yet.
The Storm is anything but a killer smart phone. The Storm is incredibly laggy and slow. The press in screen only has one sensor button in the middle when it needed buttons all over, the device is cheaply made and the software blows. No thanks.
I spent about an hour in a Verizon store playing with the Storm for a week and I also played with a friends Storm, the phone is not good. It compares to other Blackberries somewhat but compared to phones it was supposed to compete against (the IPhone mainly) it fails miserably.
I'll take a look at the Storm 2 when it comes out if I haven't switched to Sprint and the Pre by then. For now, I'm stuck on a Motorola Q9m with no great Verizon smartphones coming out in the near future.
