    Hello there,

    I've been reading the threads here on and off for a while but just registered recently. I don't curently have a BB but as soon as I'm due for my NE2 in June I'll have one again.
    I actually only had a used Curve for a short time before the Storm came out. I planned to get one so I gave the Curve to my GF and went back to the Voyager thinking it was going to be VERY temporary. Well here I am, quite a while later and still no BB. Before that I had the LG V 9800, LG enV 9900 and then the Voyager then Curve and back to Voyager.
    I got really nervous when I started hearing and seeing all the things the Storm owners were originally dealing with. I got scared and backed out knowing I was not up to the task of updating the Storm constantly with the Beta OS's. Not that I wouldn't want ot learn it but I am a newbie and can't garuntee the time needed right now. I wasn't due for an upgrade but it's been my experience that if you want to upgrade a few months early they normally let you do it just with out the NE2 credit.
    Well I am still fighting the urge to by another Curve to hold me over. I would really like to the see the Storm up to par by the time the Niagra comes out because I would love to test the 2 side by side...and honestly I really hope the storm wins out. I love the idea of the large screen, maybe even more so now that I have been using a Voyager but reliability with out NEEDED tweaking is most important. Aslo looks like I may spending more and more time over seas so a world phone is what I am looking for.
    I've played with the Storm in store and other users and the one thing I was worried most about (the virtual keyboard) it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would have been. After maybe 30 minutes on a friends I was typing really well. Close to what I am able to do on the Voyager (which happens to have a very nice keyboard in my opinion) Maybe because the keyboards are actually pretty close in size. I've read about some typing lag but my friend's definitely wasn't having a problem with that. Don't know what version OS he was running either.
    Anyway...here I am can't wait to get a BB again as well become part of the CB community.

    Wow that was fast!
    Thanks for the welcome!
    I really can't wait to get a BB back in my life and dive in!
    I'm all ready doing tons of research so I know what to expect before buying and where to post when I need some help.

    There really is so much on here I go from being excited to intimidated and back again. Really can't wait to get back to a Black Berry. Wish I knew about this site when I originally got my Curve. I would have never given it up to my girl friend.
    I really can't complain too much though. She really uses it and loves it. She hasn't signed up on here as far as I know, normally she just comes to me and I come on here, search for what I need and in 30 seconds to 10 minutes the problem is always solved. So nice not having to call a VZW to get help.
