    I am a Curve gal. Love me some BBM. But, was recently swayed into getting the Samsung Fascinate. I have given it two weeks and I want another Blackberry!

    I have to decide if I want a Bold or the Storm 2 and wanted to come here for advice. Apparently, I can only exchange once so whatever I get this time I'm stuck with.

    There's a few thread on this topic, check the 9650 and 9550 forums.

    I had Storm2 and got tired of the headaches after a mere 5 weeks. I got a Tour which VZW swapped out for the Bold. Bold is a solid device, and the OS runs very smoothly. Too bad I can't say the same for the hash RIM/VZW put out for Storm2.

    One of my co-workers has now had 2 Storms (Storm & Storm2) and she has had nothing but problems with it! On the other hand- Myself and 3 close family members have the bold we LOVE them! the OS is slick and runs very smoothly, I constantly have complements on the picture quality and it's a beautiful phone. Go Bold!

    GO for the BOLD, if you want the touch screen try a torch, but i suggest NO STORM

    I switched from Storm 2 (which I very much liked) to Bold 9700 and couldnt be happier.

    Bold all the way! Had many S1's....to the point, I said no thanks to a free S2....and was so frustrated to the point I went Andriod for a short while, Clig and mytouch3G and ended up missing BB and went to the 9700. It was so far the best decision I have made with any phone.

    If you had a Curve and liked it you will love the Bold. I own several and it is the workhorse of Blackberry.

    I went Storm 9530, to Bold 9700 and couldn't be happier. I don't miss touch screen at all. Only downside is that the screen is a little bit smaller, however the better resolution (in my opinion) makes up for it as I can use smaller text and pictures now. I LOVE keyboard shortcuts to get everything done, and I love the overall processing speed / speed of navigation thru the Bold. If you cut and paste text a lot you will really appreciate the trackpad over the touchscreen. The Bold 9700 will EVENTUALLY get OS6 with the speedy browser... And my only other point is that my brother in-law has a 9550, and my 9700 kills it in battery life. Just a few of my thoughts on your question

    I dont like the Press thing that goes with Storm. I'd go for Bold in a heart bit.

    Thank you all so much for your advice!

    I just wanted to update and say that I did go with the Bold. I was so happy to get rid of my Fascinate last night and finally have another Blackberry in my hands. I feel complete again.
