    Any new Storm 2 owners able to use your Storm 1 paid third party apps? Wondering if apps such as Quicklaunch and/or WeatherBerry work if you purchased on the Storm 1...

    Yes and no

    While it may work quite a few apps including QuickLaunch and BerryWeather require serials numbers in order to activate them.

    Since you paid for the the app to use on the storm 1 you are not legally allowed to also use it on the storm 2. You paid for 1 licenses per device not a 1 time fee for every device.

    With that being said I know people don't like to pay twice for the same app so a lot of users will just use it illegally. 85% of blackberry apps don't require serials and you will be able to use those on both the storm 1 and 2.

    I believe you are wrong. You can log into your Crackberry Store account and change your device and Pin. You can then use any software you purchased on your new device. You can't however use the apps on the old device as well (at least you shouldn't)

    So far everything that I had on Storm 1 is working on Storm 2. Themes showed as not compatable on the CB App Store and I haven't tried them. QL works as it did with Storm 1 with 5.0 OS. But like I said, every other app is working. If you want specifics let me know what you are interested in.

    At this point do we know of any themes that work with Storm 2? How about Berry Buzz?

    Themes are going to have problems with the 5.0 OS and I am reluctant to try them. I don't use Berry Buzz so can't help. Also, like I said earlier, my purchased themes are showing as not compatable on the CB Store now that I changed my device on my account.

    Anyone else having issues with app world on storm2, ie not finding previous apps you had on storm 1. I went onto app world to get my apps loaded on the phone and numerous are missing. can't find weatherbug, pandora, scoremobile, viigo, etc.

    Could this be due to the new operating system?
