Does anyone still plan on getting rid of their Storm1?
Even after the 5.0 upgrade? Just out of curiosity, if the new upgrade changed peoples opinions and perspective of the phone itself.

- For me to know and you to find out.
I spent a lot of time obsessing about the droid and how I was going to get rid of my S1 but after all I decidecided to sit back and wait... I'm actually pretty friggin happy with my S1 and plan on keeping it till I actually need a new phone.

my storm was on a huge upswing with .148, but it's been down hill since then. i'm counting the days till xmas when i'm eligible to upgrade, and i'm getting android in some fashion. in the mean time, i'll let RIM figure out this whole "consumer email" thing on their own. i'm tired of paying for service and waiting for the phone to come together in the mean time.

Hi, my name is Mr Jerome, and I'm no longer addict to CRACKberry! I have a new drug of choice called DROID! All I know is that once I got DROID, I was no longer addicted. I have no withdrawals, no battery pulls, no night sweats, no clicking sounds when I want to send a txt or email while my wife is sleeping, she would catch me smoking the crack pipe every time but not with DROID! I kicked the habit in 5minutes when it booted up the first time in less than 30 seconds, oh my! I setup my account with google and was on my way to a new life, free of trying to do, when iDROID can.
Oh yea the reception is 3 bars in stead of none in my house, I got rid of the Verizon extender, It is no longer needed!
Email me at email@example.comSprint Kyocera QCP 6035 -> T-Mobile Motorola V600 -> T-Mobile PocketPC -> T-Mobile HP6315 -> T-Mobile BlackBerry 7100t -> T-Mobile Treo 600 -> Cingular Treo 650 -> Verizon Treo 650 -> Treo700w -> Treo 700wx/Treo700p -> BlackBerry 8830 -> 8130/8330/9530/9550 DROID!

but i will say this: as long as you're not sending large files back and forth in the BIS system, BB is still king of email. but if you want to be able to do anything else at all with any resemblance to efficiency, then RIM sucks the big one. mmm, sweet lemonade!
my buddy morganizer ditched the 9550 and went strictly droid for work email, and he says that once you get the email forwarded to gmail, life is grand. everything works so well, and fast, and guess what!!! it looks good while it does it too.
unless you're married to like 30 email addresses or BES exclusively for work, then android is worth a serious look.
it's all of the functions, features and convenience of a blackberry, times 1000, and the smoothness and speed of an iphone, without all of the proprietary locked down software. it is the ultimate consumer device (at the moment) and will continue to be until apple gives up the iron grip, or RIM changes like 30 things about their software/hardware/infrastructure. but i doubt either of those two scenarios will play out any time soon. apple is the way they are because they're making money, and none of the sheeple will challenge their ways, and RIM is married to the "email security" and won't give that up for us lowly consumer users. so in the mean time, android, AHOY!

I'm just yankin chains dude, i barely make use of all the "real" BB features. FWIW the storm will probably be my last BB (was my first as well ) unless something seriously changes. But I'm still not upgrading to anything but a 4G device. Net speed is paramount on my list of priorities. Any kind of competition against the Apple Army is a good thing in my books. Next few years are going to be REEEALLY interesting. Even the Sony Xperia, I hear, is running a modified Android (albeit 1.6), good things comin
But at the end of the day, I am still quite happy with my storm and dont have any problems using it for the next year or so..328

Last night someone called me and I needed to take down another number.
I hit the button for memopad. I get to it, and I hit the button to go to the numeric keypad. It doesn't work. then I realize none of the keys work.
This specific issue had never happened before. However, it did happen when I needed it most.
This is why I am getting rid of this abortion as soon as possible. It is not reliable. It will work fine until I absolutely need it to work, then some nonsense bull**** bug will pop up and ruin things. None of the issues are easily reproducable so it is impossible to even prove they happen, but they aren't a figment of my imagination.

As soon as xmas is over and my CC bill is down, I'm kicking the Storm and going Droid. I've said since day 1 that the browser is my #1 priority. RIM seems to think that the browser is an afterthought, which is very evident in 5.0 on both S1 and S2. I'm out.

Yes.. i am dropping the storm and bb.. working with verizon now to trade it out for a droid. I have never had such a poor expereince. A jitterbug phone beats out the storm. YOU CAN AT LEAST MAKE CALLS CONSISTENTLY and it is only 29.95.. since the upgrade i cannot synch and i am back to battery pulls.. Time for RIM to pass into the annals of history. they have missed the ship..
