    Let me see someone with an iphone do a battery pull!! LOL. How about purchase an extended battery for the iphone....... Hmmm.. That's right you CAN'T take out the battery without sending your phone to Apple!! How about....Send me a picture from your iphone.... Send me an MMS over 160 characters from your iphone.... Try and copy/paste a link to me from your iphone....... O wait!!!! You can't do any of that!!

    Does everyone forget what the iPhone was like on release? ****...

    Give it time haters...

    Posted from my CrackBerry at wapforums.crackberry.com

    does everyone forget how the i phone is now???

    anyone frequent their forums???

    browser shut down, terrible battery life, absolutely insane amount of drop phone calls ( even for an ATT phone ), horrid replacement policy, getting a lock down from Apple on all these 3rd party goodies, no replacement batteries and terrible terrible 3g coverage


    be thankful


    This is the best touch screen smart phone on the market today. Bar none.

    Anyone who says otherwise knows ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about cell phones period.

    Imagine the light saber app on the Storm, the accelerometer is so unresponsive, the sound effects would be 2-3 seconds delayed...

    i'd take an iphone myself if it were available on verizon

    that being said, i love the push email on my storm. and the removable battery. and the QWERTY for text messaging. and the QWERTY for emails.

    yeah, i'll probably need two phones

    such a pathetic review.

    no qwerty keyboard? thats all they can say? its already in .90 and will likely stay in future revisions.

    everything else took apple over a year to tweak and as ive said before, they still cant send MMS or copy paste? pfft.

    I think these comparisons are funny. I own both the iPhone and a couple of Storms and I can tell you they both have their strong points and their weak points.

    I actually use my Storm more as a media player than I do my iPhone.. Imagine that. I do so because the iPhone lacks a feature I very much desired on a media player and that is A2DP stereo Bluetooth.

    Both units play video quite well. Both units surf the web quite well. Granted the iPhone has a better browser by default with Safari but the Storm is improving with the release of third party browsers like Opera and Bolt so far.

    I believe there is plenty of room in the marketplace for both devices and I do think that the Storm is the best phone on the Verizon network and cannot think of a phone that sold quite as well in such a short time with exception of the much over hyped Motorola RZR. But even then I canít say that I remember seeing lines of people waiting to buy the RZR like there was for the Storm.

    Even in the midst of a depressed economy like we have been dealing with there was many lines to buy a device that people were and are willing to spend $500.00 of their hard earned money on. So I would hardly call the Storm a failure at anything.

    Please do go on, you have not made one valid point. The Storm or samsung can not do what I listed.
    MMS? you can email a photo, that is an acceptable trade off for a responsive OS in my opinion.

    Heh. Interesting article. I wouldnt consider the iphone as a Smartphone like the Storm. The IPhone is more of a toy for kids compared to the Blackberry. I switched to Blackberrys from the LG Dare. And by god, even the CURVE was better then any other phone at the time. Now the Storm just dominates man. The Iphone is for Apple Fans. If you want it, suite yourself with an IPod Touch like me lol

    Not at all the case, the iPhones enterprise capabilities are far beyond what RIM has to offer. The BES server is a joke and will be obsolete soon, M$ will make sure of it.
