i've talked to a person who said their storm was perfect and not laggy and that they could type fine etc, so i asked to try it out and it was just like mine. only they typed super slow and had a higher tolerance of "acceptable lag" than i did

It is simply a matter of how high peoples standards are. The some people are satisfied with the Storm, LG Vu, Sony Walkman phone, Jitterbug, and that is fine.
Others want to be near the cutting edge of technology, and actually use the device to its potential, this is where the Storm falls flat on its face. RIM does not make a device that is in the same class as the G1, iPhone, and Pre.

My friends aren't stupid or anything (my old roommate had a Storm and she hated it but she was also incapable of changing inputs on the TV to watch FIOS so I just brushed it off, and I don't classify her as one of my "friends" who own it since I couldn't stand her). They're very tech savvy and most of them have owned a Blackberry in the past.
You'd be lying to yourself to tell yourself that this phone was pushed to market before it was ready.
Thankfully aside from a few minor problems (the iPhone has them too fanboys...I was playing around with Who Wants to be a Millionaire on my roommate's 3G iPhone and the damn thing froze on me...second time I've had an iPhone freeze on me), my phone works fine...even with the massive crack on my screen from when I dropped it.

In my personal use...I thought .99 was a great OS build. First OS I had where my phone finally started acting like the way I'd expected it to act back in November...a few OS's since then were horrible but yeah .148 has been solid so far.

How can you hold it against a phone that's not even out yet?
How can you hold it against a phone that's not even out in 10 days?

Don't get me wrong, you're welcome to post here, I was just wondering why you do it.

This is the best point on this thread. Some people are willing to put up or tolerate certain "quirks" and others aren't. So lag to one person might be a frustrating when lag to someone else is no big deal. If I had to return a device 5 times, I don't want it anymore. But some people aren't like that. They will keep getting another because they can tolerate the device. IMO, the Storm was a major step down in reliability and build quality when compared to other Blackberry devices. Now whether it should have been released as it was, is debatable but it was surely a disappointment to me. Of all the blackberries I've ever had that was the only one I wanted to throw out of a moving car and forget all about the money. But that's just me. I didn't even have severe problems like others and I still took mine back.
For anyone to need to be tech savvy or NEED to visit CB is an unacceptable excuse. Of all the Blackberry users in the world, CB represents a very small population and no one should need to come here to "fix" a device. If I gotta "fix" the device straight out of the box, then the problem is with the device and not with the user. I just feel for those that don't know anything about CB and are having trouble because there's nothing RIM/VZW can/will do now except get ready for another device launch. I'm a lot of people Storms are working great, but everyone didn't get a good device and don't hold the same standards.
P.S. My Bold kicks the Storm's behind in every way.Who cares which device is better? Isn't all that matters is that it's the best one for you?
