    Did you adjust well from a physical keyboard to the touch keyboard, not gonna lie I kinda miss mine from the BB Curve. But still wouldn't give the Storm up for the world. It's the best phone I ever owned.

    Former Voyager user. I do miss the speed I head with the full qwerty keyboard. I miss G4 on vcast. (not available on there mobile site). But I would never want to go back. The storm is so very user friendly and intuitive in comparison.

    Former 8830 user from Verizon. I had to switch to another global phone and the storm, while not perfect, is pretty nice.

    Spiteful though at Verizon for not officially updating the OS on the 8830. Verizon still only OFFICIALLY supports os 4.2.2 even though i was running 4.5+

    iPhone 3G and Tmo G1, finally retired those two a couple of days ago. I miss having a keyboard but its not a big deal. Overall I'm glad the storm won out.

    left the Pearl for the Storm. I have had many issues with the storm, and of course we know it's still buggy, but at this point, i think this is such a cool BB that I wont give it up. If RIM continues to issue OS updates to VZW, this device should kick some major league **** in a few months.

    I've been using a Palm for many years. I came to the Storm from a Treo 700p. I love the storm. Now, if I could only find a replacement for 2 applications that I had on the Treo (found similar but not equivalent) I would be REALLY REALLY HAPPY!

    I came from the motorola Q9m. what a POS. that's why I can stand all of the Storm's flaws- the Q9m used to take so long to answer a phone call, that not only did I miss the first time my wife called, I would miss the sixth time- you know the time where she is saying WTF is wrong with your stupid phone. It was the most frustrating phone to use. And it did not help that about two weeks after I got it, they released the Q9c that replaced the CPU- obviously admitting that the one my phone had was trash. I had it replaced 4 times over one year.
    One thing it taught me was to be patient with your phone. And to lower my expectations.

    Left my lg vx9400 mobile tv for the Storm. Missing the vcast capabilities of the old one but Storm more than makes up for that. Still learning to use all the functions though.

    It was a major culture shock coming from the Treo 700w but I'm getting used to it.

    I came from a Palm 700p. Completely outdated and can't compare to any of today's PDAs. And there was no clear answer to when the next generation of Palm PDAs would come out. The Storm definitely takes some getting use to, and there was definitely a learning curve. I had to re-enter my Palm contacts into my Blackberry manually via Outlook (The BB Desktop Manager software didn't recognize my version of Palm Desktop). And the click/touch screen felt unnatural at first. But I love the processor, the better browser, and the screen resolution. And the email system is awesome. The fact that it's a world phone is an added bonus, as I tend to travel. Plus, I wanted a phone (next-gen PDA) where I could stay with my carrier. Never had any major problems with coverage with Verizon. So long story short....I'm happy with my new Blackberry.
