    i traded in my iPhone for the Storm today. Picked mine up at Costco (first one they sold) and got the accessories free and no activation fee.

    to be really honest, i didn't like the Storm at first after coming from the iPhone. when i left the store, i thought i would just get a Curve in a few days when the Mania died down since they were out... Yesterday i thought the keyboard would be difficult and inoperable like an iphone... i stand corrected.

    now, after spending the day with it, i am typing faster than i ever did on my iPhone in the QWERTY keyboard and even faster with the SureType Keyboard. my 7130 was not really much different from the Storm, aside from the glitz and glamor. I just needed to acclimate to the BB interface which is a bit more intricate than the iphone's.

    i'm so grateful to be back on Verizon and even more glad to get my emails - as my iPhone stopped fetching emails about 5 months ago and i would have to check all 4 of my accounts manually throughout the day (even the Yahoo push accounts). a real PITA and waste of battery. what a difference between the two phones.

    i really wanted to like my iphone - and in some ways i did, but between att's poor svc, perpetually checking my email, and not having a comfortable/effective typing alternative, it was quite difficult. you would have to have owned and used an iphone to appreciate the subtle effectiveness of the phone, and it's very strong and detracting detriments i speak of. the iPhone does some things quite well, but it is NOT a business phone. the Storm is.

    i'm so glad i am back on Verizon and with my fix of the crack... i'm a power user and the phone suits my needs in the absence of a Bold on Verizon.

    Oh, and no crashes, or any other miscreant type behavior from my unit. the transitions seem slow, but i think that's just the animation needing to be sped up... not the phone lagging.
