    So earlier this year I started out with the Samsung Omnia. I was on a 2 year contract & 1 year was up. I hated that phone because it was an all touch screen phone & just flat out terrible. My contract wasn't up until this November & I couldn't stand the Samsung anymore so in March I found a Blackberry Curve 8330 for $200 on ebay that was a refurbished phone. Although it wasn't brand new I enjoyed it a lot. After a few months though it started to act like an old phone since it was freezing & the ball stopped working sometimes but I still liked the phone. Towards the end of my contract I wasn't sure what phone to get. I saw Motorola announce the Droid Pro & I wanted to give it a go since Android OS was getting a lot of hype. So I got the Pro & over the last two weeks realized I couldn't stand that phone either. It kept freezing, over heating, & the battery life was terrible. Plus I missed the mouse ball (or whatever it's called lol) that the Blackberry had. I no longer wanted a touch screen on my phone. So today (since you have 30 days to return it) I went to the Verizon store & got the Bold 9650. So far I'm very pleased with it. It is much quicker than my old Curve (obviously since it's 3g lol) & I just like the way it feels. I'm very happy to be back using a Blackberry. I don't need a million apps I won't use. I'm glad to be back! Also I'm looking forward to the Playbook lol.

    P.S. I'm new to this site & couldn't find an 'Introduce Yourself' thread so I appologies if I posted this in the wrong thread.

    SOOO not True!, I now have been on my Droid X for a few months.... I still come back here to support my wife's BB but I'll be honest, As a BB user and abuser for close to 8 years I got fed up from the hopes and promises from RIM. I now have rooted my droid and can say it continues to amaze me what I can do. I have everything and so much more.it is truly a smartphone and at first I thought sure it's just a media toy... but I can do everything email wise and documents that I did with my storm2, and the browser experience is beyond the BB, I use xscope and find I dont use the laptop for very much. I have a 4.3" screen which gives amazing real estate for doing just about anything you want. Folks, keep waiting for RIM to come through, it's just gonna be a LOOOONG wait.

    LOL Sorry, didn't wanna seem so serious, I still am amazed I made the switch, I did everything to my storm2, Leaks, hybrids, I got more people into the BB LOL... of course they are all mad at me now that I made the switch. I was really hoping to hold out and see what awesome BB I could have and stay but....... DROID!

    Yeah the Droids do rock some bells and whistles for sure... Not ones I need though, but they can be fun and kill some serious time if you're bored lol.

    I had the Omnia as well. So glad I came over to the BB side. My 9650 does just about everything I need. (And probably more than I realize that I need) Consider me hooked on BB.

    My first 24 hours:

    Absolutely love it so far! I applaud the battery life since my battery on the Droid was an issue. I've been using it all day; for posting on facebook, playing brick braker & bubble boom lol, & txting. The battery barely drained at all (& I've been using it all day since 7 am) so I'm thrilled lol. I'm very familiar with the keyboard so no complaints there, very pleased. I'm glad I'm back & regret ever leaving for a brief time, like barely 3 weeks lol. It's like I have an old friend back.
