    Hey CB.

    Looking for opinions on upgrading my Storm 2. It's a decent enough phone, but I like the new Bold 9930 and Torch 9850 on Verizon. Does it make sense to go to one of them or wait till a 4G phone or Super Phone is available? Unfortunately, RIM seems to make a lot of promises and doesn't deliver on them in a reasonable time. I also own a PlayBook, so definitely looking to stay with a BB phone.

    Thanks.

    The 9850 is a big improvement from the storm 2, also the form fact is great.

    Yeah, if you're a fan of the all touch devices, I'd go with that 9850, it's a monster upgrade from the Storm series.

    If you feel like giving a keyboard style BB a run, you can't beat the 9930...

    I went from s2 to the bold 9930 and couldn't be happier. I loved my storm 2 too.

    If you can go without the keyboard then the 9860 would be my choice. I would also move to att since the CDMA phones are not get many updates. Updates on the firmware is just as important as what phone you get. Verizon is also run by the worst scumbags imaginable. 9900/9860!

    Thanks for the replies. I appreciate it. Just didn't know if it was worth upgrading now, or waiting for the new stuff. Would really like to have 4G, but no idea if/when VZW is going to get it. Would also rather have the Torch with the slide out kb, but it's not the end of the world. Maybe upgrade now and wait a year for the new stuff to let it settle?

    The Torch keypad is over rated. It can only be used when using the phone in portrait mode. When you surf the web, it will be turned sideways for landscape viewing and you will end up using the on-screen keypad anyway. The 9860/9850 will have both a bigger screen, and virtual keypad in landscape. You won't have to fart around with the cumbersome slider either.

    i was wondering the same thing. im using a 9550 right now but am moving to a GSM area this summer and am looking for a new phone. im a huge BB fanboy but the new phones are looking very nice spec wise and the fact hat the new BB10 phones wont have my buttons anyway its making this a very difficult choice.

    The 9810 is a great phone. Great camera - important for things like Evernote

    I wouldn't wait to upgrade. Technology is always changing, if you wait for BB10 there will something newer on the horizon that everyone will be telling you to wait for. The sooner you upgrade now, the sooner you can upgrade in the future while enjoying your new phone now.

    my bro has a 9900 and as much as i LOVED my 9000 the feel of the 9900 was... well off. it didnt feel nice in my hand think its something to do with the battery door.
