    I was at a Verizon store today. The demo models they had on display were running v4.7.0.65(Platform 4.0.0.76). It was a buggy mess. I went to Best Buy later to pick up my Storm and they had a working model there for me to try out. It was v4.7.0.65(Platform 4.0.0.82). This one only had a few bugs and was actually running pretty well. Shocking how Verizon stores (I've been to 3 different ones all have the .76 software running and all were extremely buggy, but the Best Buy store had .82 and it worked well.

    Needless to say, I had a Storm box in my hand (the one I pre-ordered), but I got my deposit back. Just not good enough for my needs. I am probably going to go with a Bold.

    By the way, while I was at Best Buy, one other guy was going through with the Storm purchase and one guy came in and returned the Storm he bought on Friday, along with a bunch of accessories.

    p.s. the reps at the Verizon store were still acting like they didn't have a clue that there were problems with the Storm. One rep was giving a demo to a lady and he kept saying "This is really slow. There are definitely problems. Not sure why." The keyboard would not come up at all for any applications. I told them the known issues.

    Did the SAME thing. For my needs (speed being a major one), the BOLD will do.

    The Storm has its good points, but it just did't do it for me.

    Nope, the next lucky (or unlucky depending on your opinion of the Storm) person to ask for a Storm at that Best Buy got it.

    I thought about buying it, then selling it on EBAY where they are going for $600. But just didn't want to deal with the hassle.
