    but carrier is very important. If verizon had the iphone, I would have gotten that a while ago. Now if verizon had both phones... now THAT is a question. Either way, I am happy with my Storm.
    agreed, carrier is really more important than phone ...I have an i pod touch for years, so obviously I would have loved the I Phone on our network. But I Phone went to the inferior network and that was its downfall in my book .

    Plus the technology that BB offers for email push is sooooo important to me, I have to have that instant email or else it costs me money. I cant rely on something that is checking my emails periodically and cant maintain voice services here and there....I need consistency and reliabilty which is what BB has always offered me.



    So the Storm


    ON Verizon

    Thats odd.

    No one is saying the iPhone was perfect at launch-

    It got better with time, as I am sure the Storm will too.

    But the iPhone is most certainly simpler to use than the Storm-

    simpler to use how?? these devices are labeled " smart phones " so they are not really intended for those who need simple.

    I agree! Carrier is more important than phone - and mail delivery technology is more important than phone. It's BES/BIS that makes all BlackBerry devices superior to iPhone (and pretty much everything else) in terms of e-mail.

    I'll take whatever Verizon offers that connects to the BlackBerry infrastructure.

    Point, press- No Pop Up Menus-

    How is that not simple?

    But the Storm was the FIRST BlackBerry Legitametly aimed towards the Masses-

    Besides- Who Doesnt Want Simple?

    If I can get what I want done with one button- why feel the need to add three?

    Just because it's labeled a smartphone? Thats backwards logic.

    If its a smartphone it should be optimized for speed and efficiency.

    Its speedier and more efficient to click once, than three times.

    I'd be in love with the Storm even if the Nazis made it. I may not brag about it as much as I do now, but I would still love it.

    And, even if Jesus actually hand-made the Jesus Phone himself, I would still pass on a device with no camera flash or MMS capabilities.

    Jesus could turn water into wine imagine what he could do with a storm

    I think the click screen is a big improvement over iPhone's touch screen. Certainly that's a matter of personal preference, and you can argue that there are fewer steps in iPhone - but I find it easier to make the click screen on my storm work than the touch screen on my iPod touch. Being able to hover and then click when you mean it is nice.

    that was really some serious nit picking there. Your looking for one button over 3??


    I prefer the 3 buttons and on screen options myself.

    I think it is funny that Apple, the anti-Microsoft, is doing exactly what Microsoft did back in the day to end up being one of the most hated technology/software companies in business. Apple makes proprietary software and hardware that only plays well with other Apple products. I think the iPhone and Storm are fairly comparable. I prefer the Storm because I need it more for business than pleasure. I just try to stay away from Apple products as a matter of course.
