    Dear Verizon:

    A few things:

    Bought it on release day. My first mistake.
    I've waited and waited for an OS update since December.
    Can't do any of the hybrids because of the corporate link to the phone.
    I've been a loyal Verizon customer since May of 2000.

    With that, if there's something new, come July, you get my Storm back. If you can't see your way to cutting me a deal for a new phone, I'm off to AT&T for subpar service and a better phone.

    End of rant...

    Anyone else done too?

    For those that are "happy" are you tied to a Corp BES? I can't ask my BB Admin to reconnected mine as frequently as the releases... Perhaps that would make it a better experience. Just curious

    I am also still loving the storm and still running .75 OS.

    I had a Palm 755e before and the storm with all its so called "problems" still in my opinion blows the Palm out of the water.

    I'm on the corporate BES, workin for "THE MAN" and I still love my Storm - even with .75. I went from a Motorola Q (why I bought a windows-based phone when I use a Mac is still beyond me) to a Pearl (a good "starter-berry") to an 8830 to the Storm and I LOVE it!

    The corporate peeps who can't load a leak...I feel for ya. Once you experience the Storm the way it should be (via the OS in my signature) you'll never want anything else! I don't blame ya for being pissed. Nor do I blame ya for lookin elsewhere (why GAYT&T I don't know...I'm assuming for the iSuck).

    And yes you can change it for a Curve no matter how long you've had it.

    I am on corporate BES. My advice is to load the desktop on your home computer, upgrade (I'm on 113) and then either play dumb and have them connect it back on by saying it isn't working (really not that hard for them and they don't even need to see your phone if you tell them you know how to go to the enterprise activiation and do it yourself with the password they assign you), or buy someone a beer and tell them what you are doing. You have to be selective about your upgrades (don't rush into each one as it comes out since you are relying on them to reconnect you), but wait until you hear about a nice significant upgrade. My phone has been a different machine since I upgraded. (I won't upgrade again until a nice stable 5 series comes out.....) GO FOR IT!

    I am tied to one, however mine is unlocked (shhh don't tell). Running .141 Hybrid works well. If I get tired of it or have problems, I can trade it back in for a Curve.
