    I just picked up a Storm 2 from Verizon a couple days ago and can still potentially exchange the phone for something else (minus a $35 BS charge). So far I am pleased with the phone except for the browser. I wanted to get some opinions on keeping the phone or exchanging it for something else... This phone being able to be used over seas was a plus otherwise I may have picked up an android, but I'm still not sure what to do.

    Do it. No reason not too. Since it's been placed on the EOL, my company had everyone turn in S2s. Been trying out the Tour for the last few weeks and it's not bad.

    Our Storm 2's are DOA. Exchange it, depending on how timely you do so, for a Storm 2.5 or Android.

    which begs the question--Why did they have everyone turn them in?? It's not like the phones will all stop working.

    I'd return it if i were you...The storm 2 is done(stick a fork in it). The storm3 will be out in a few months, i would wait for that.

    I'm still going to need a phone for the time being tho.....if the storm 3 is going to be a few months....I may try and go droid x and grab something else in case of travel....I'm not sure. It does seem pretty clear however that I should not keep the storm 2.

    It seems from the verizon website that it is 30 days. No apparent limit on usage.

    That's a Rogers policy, not Verizon...

    Stupid Verizon is giving me the run-around about exchanging this phone....I am a new customer but it seems there is no way to order me a droid x without handing in my s2....its going to be annoying to go and locate a temporary phone for a couple weeks....I'm tempted to cancel the whole thing and move elsewhere.

    Bullchitty. Keep it. I even have a spare in case something happens to mine. Read the reviews of the 9800 Torch with OS6. It's pretty underwhelming.

    Keep the S2, the S3 will be out by the time it's time to upgrade again.

    nah, didn't want to get stuck with an EOL phone for 2 years. Using my backup pearl now and waiting for my X to ship.

    S2's life cycle is "finished" in my opinion. No OS 6 for it so you might as well go with the 9650 or switch to an android phone.

    I like my storm2 but there is no way I'd buy it at this point in time. Either use your upgrade for a droid x or hold off if you can until the storm3 next year. Best of luck.

    I was going to suggest Bold, but looks like you already worked out a plan!

    i say just jump away from all of the bb bs they have been giving to their customers and get an android..thats what i did as soon as i was able to and the storm2 was cool when it dropped but now its done and as a consumer device i feel that bb is the same way....just my 2 cents
