    Since the OP stated he would like to see a poll on this I have created one for everybody to vote on:

    thank you! I didn't know how to do that or I would have in the beginning. I'm hoping there are a lot of people who never had to return them and we're just hearing from the unhappy but vocal minority. :-)

    Im thinking that at least half of the poeple sending these things back are the ones in the restaurant that send their food back at least once. On your third or forth phone.....HOLY GET SOMETHING ELSE BATMAN!! Seems you wont be happy with any of them. Maybe the functionality is not for you. Either get an iPhone or a different BB. Personally, I LOVE this thing. I notice there are some bugs here and there, but nothing compared to a Windoze Slobile OS. Maybe you are abusing them too much: maybe you all drink too much coffee or Monster drink and just cant wait that extra 85 milliseconds for the app to come up or the screen to rotate. Or, maybe you have a preconceived notion of how YOU think it should work and are just dissappointed. Videos are garbage, you have no idea what is activated or not on the unit.

    Im taking a break from CB forums because all you complainers are ruining the forum. Theres more useless info than there is helpful. Its becoming disgusting.

    Moderators: Idea: Maybe Sticky a single new post for complaints, rants (like this one ) "Im sending it back because...", my CS said this, ship date, and the like.

    Out for a while....later days.

    I like how VZW employee accounts handles replacements.

    They'll ship you a brand new unit but charge your account another $200.

    Really makes you pause before you go ahead and order another Storm over a semi-loose-well-maybe-it-is-maybe-it-isn't Send key.

    Credit is obviously given back when you return one of the Storms but it usually takes 1 or 2 bill cycles for the credit to return.

    The phone seems to be fine if you don't break it. I recommend you don't break it.

    I have my original Storm. Got it on the 1st, so probably part of the original batch. It sometimes screws up, but I've updated to every new firmware patch (now up to .83) and it's only gotten better.

    I think I might've just lucked out. I'm happy with mine.

    I'm new to bb and kinda mixed feelings. 1st wk of os 4.5, wow i was hooked. Then started having problems with mms and now with email, going on 3rd curve @alltel. They dont seem to know why, they just tell me to get another one. I like that, but at the same time having to upgrade os and restore info each time is becoming loathesome. If anyone else has a cure or similar problem let me know.
    thanx
    ps it seems that each time i get a new one it'll work at first or it'll work later. either way not for long.

    First replacement arrived (late) today. Are they going to charge me for the battery that I forgot to put back in the box?
