    I spend so much time online keeping up with all the new "phone tech" and rumors. It's like I'm addicted or something. I bought my iPhone (2g) after leaving Verizon and my xv6800 (WinMo). After about 2 months my iPhone lost it's appeal, and I've been looking forward to getting a new phone ever since. I just haven't found one that I've seen and really really HAD to have it.

    I've been visiting CrackBerry.com for so long, and I'm just so impressed with the amount of news, information, and general help available. I've always wanted a BB, but I've been holding out for the Bold or the Storm (I have no qualms about going back to Verizon).

    Now, I like having a touchscreen, but I really wanted something with a physical keyboard. I'm just not sure if I'd regret buying the Bold and missing the touchscreen, or buying the Storm (and switching carriers again), and not be thrilled about not having a physical keyboard. I know that the touchscreen on the Storm is different then the iPhone, but I'm not sure. I dunno. I'm starting to ramble.

    I know it pretty much comes down to personal preference, but I really like both devices. And I've determined that my next phone IS going to be a BB. I'm just curious as to how everyone else feels about the two devices. And yes, i know there's a lot of "Bold vs Storm" threads. I've read 'em all. I'm just so eager to get my hands on a BB!

    Well, to anyone who actually sat here long enough to read this, sorry. I really am. And with that, I'm done. Really.

    It's not so much that I couldn't wait to try both BB's before deciding, it's the fact that I'm really starting to hate my iPhone (even more). I think it may be one of the worst impulse purchases I've ever made.

    welcome to CB, id wait to try out the Storm before you get anything. You also need to factor in the ETF if you decide to cancel with ATT and go back to VZW and see if it will be worth it for you to switch carriers. The Bold is in the stores now so you will be able to pop into any ATT store and get a little hands on with the device as oppossed to the Storm which obviously hasn't been released yet.

    I second this advice!!!! By the sounds of it, it shouldn't be too long before the Storm launches on VZW. So, your wait for a BB shouldn't be too much longer but doing it this way you can be sure as to which phone you like better rather than getting stuck with one to only wish you had the other. BB's are simply great so either of them will be a great choice.

    And of course, welcome to CB!!!!

    it's not even so much that I hate Apple. It's the iPhone I don't particularly care for. More-so it's lack of basic features like mms or even the ability to forward texts. I have friends with BB's and they just seem so much more organized. And after using both the iPhone and playing with a couple different BB's I don't think I could ever go back to WinMo.

    I couldn't sleep so I rolled over for a late night session with my Bold, and we've been together for a couple months now. The honeymoon isn't over yet

    Well, I've not seen a Bold in person..but I've just recently stepped into the realm which is BB by buying a Curve and I love it. I'm sure whichever BB you get, you're going to be in love.

    I know I am!

    welcome to the crack. I've always thought that I'd prefer a QWERTY keyboard myself, I'm not sure I could do a touchscreen keyboard. Something about pressing the keys just makes me feel confident that I've entered information I guess!
