    Man, if I was that upset, I would be at the Verizon Store complaining! Had mine since Oct 29th and love it! Hope you don't vent on your wife about your Storm2!

    LOL...You're jealous she doesn't have issues with her phone?!? What a good husband you are. haha...

    BTW, in case you don't realize...some themes do trigger massive memory leaks which, from the sounds of your rant, is exactly what you have. Since you HAVE to keep the phone due to your contract (unless your poor phone has "met with an accident" by the time you read this) why not try using the DEFAULT RIM theme. See if that improves your position...or try and diagnose and treat what ails your phone instead of spending all this time in hear ranting about something that i'm sure most of us have experienced but took the time to correct.

    If you don't want to do any of this then i'm sure there is a willing buyer on kijiji/craigslist or some other similar forum and then you can get yourself a droid and text blissfully with your wife.

    Cheers

    That's funny, the Android operating system works flawless. Actually, it doesn't. My wife is on her second, she has difficulties making and receiving calls on a regular basis. Her mom calls and she gets a picture of some random friend from facebook, instead of the pic of her mom. It has completely wiped twice, losing all SMS and MMS messages. She is running 2.1 and has all updates. Android has bugs just like every OS. After using her phone long enough, sure the browser is nice, but I realized how much I like my storm.

    I know in your "statement" you said you won't be back to this thread but I think you will. First the underlined words ^ may be an issue if you didn't get rid of the temp file from the ota download. If a reload of the OS won't work then try to sell it on Ebay or something and pick up another phone. That way you won't be "stuck" with us. it actually is a great phone if you can get around your issues

    You are right and the email support is a joke.

    Same here. It's great but I guess not for everyone.

    Good Luck

    try loading a hybrid os on your phone. Its obvious that its not a complete POS if everyone on this section of the forums has one that works. Patience is key.

    this phone is perfect..you just need to learn how to use it..the OP says that he is just posting.then don't make a declaration to not purchase the phone to other users..maybe some people are more intelligent than yourself and can learn things while using the phone. it doesn't need work out of the box, but if you do upgrade then don't do it OTA for one..
    nevermind...im rambling and can't argue well..this post by OP is poor opinion though..phone is great and i know how to use it well....sorry, im drunk..later
