    Technology is moving forward so fast. I'd love to get the new storm without an upgrade fee. Will see what verizon says about that.

    I can't see how a true Storm lover like myself could resist. The bad thing is what do I do with the old one. My wife is technically challanged... (ha ha). I would probably give it to my kids or someone in my family that would appreciate it. I guess I'll cross that bridge....... btw, wouldn't it be nice if verizon would take it on trade in for something.....????? My only 2 complaints with my storm is the Dust problem and speed of the camera. The speed of the camera has been corrected with .148 but I hope they do something with the dust problem.....
    Sorry - I'll just never understand this type of mentality. Already set to dive in and plunk down your cash without so much as having even touched the phone or reading a single consumer review. Just seems silly to me.

    I like my 9530 too, and will qualify for and upgrade around Xmas, but can't possibly see how anyone would be willing to purchase "Storm 2" because they "assume" it's going to be a better phone. Lack of informed purchases seemed to have plagued the current offering almost as much as a poor O/S - you'd think people would learn. Guess not.

    That said, I realize there are plenty of people willing to part with their $ for the newest technology as soon as it's made available. I'm not saying "Storm 2" won't be a good phone - maybe it will, maybe it won't - time will tell.

    My point is that there is just no way to make that determination at this particualr time, yet so many are willing to jump right on it.

    bottom line is this:

    IF any trade in policy is allowed (which it won't be in the scenario you're all hoping for) it will be with the mfgr, not the carrier.

    and RIM offers a trade up program in their owner's lounge on their website. go check it out. but you're gonna get a portion of what you're device is worth towards the new device, and idk how that impacts warantee with VZW.
