    Ok, first of all whats up guys I just went from a Samsung Behold to my first Blackberry and LOVIN it. The 8900....

    Problem though...

    I'm a heavy heavy texter and I have BIG thumbs so this question is for the guys do u get use to texting fast with a keyboard that technically your whole thumb could cover?

    Which is leading me to consider the Storm that I got... I'm leaning torwards the 8900 but I don't like the fact that it doesn't have 3G.. but I hate the Storm's lagging which would prob make texting harder but it's network is a lot faster. So i'm going back and forth between the phones and I can't decide.

    Both texting and Tethering is important to me.. I know tethering off of EDGE with the 8900 isin't the fastest but it gets what I need done which is basically (myspace,facebook,blogging,email and downloading a couple songs here and there) then again 3G off of Verizon's network would be AWSOME... but then again I work for Verizon and I HATE how slow the freakin Storm is. Even with it's software updates... argh i'm going to stop now.. I have 14 days to try out both phones before I make a decision and then and i'm stuck for 2 years so please help me out guys... what would u do.

    im a texting addict aswell

    the curve 8900 is going to be GREAT for texting with its keyboard

    however i find myself lovin the storm, especially the suretype keyboard
    i used to hate em but its great for some reason on this phone
    i deleted a bunch of larger apps (visual voicemail, vz navigator and vcast music) and it sped up things quite a bit

    if you get the storm, add all of your custom words in the dictionary
