    So just a question for anyone else with the new Storm, has anyone else had major delays with any buttons you push? I'm not even kidding, I have like a 2 second delay from the time I push something to the time it activates. ALSO, my battery won't keep a charge for more than 1 day. Is that normal? Is there a lemon law with blackberries?

    The Storm seems a fickle beastie-
    I've seen a few similar posts on those issues (usually "solved" with a battery-pull), some people here said that a few of the immediate issues went away on their own.
    A few others seem to be having nothing but good luck with theirs.

    Best advice? Try a battery pull, see if that helps clear it. If not, some hard-needed software updates are in the works, due out soon.
    Worst comes to worse, I'd suggest returning it for a new one. Or a different model.

    Battery Life of about a Day seems common, especially if you are doing a lot with it - so several reviews have said.

    No problems with it responds pretty quickly. Try hiding some of your home screen icons some people have reported gaining speed that way.

    Thanks DigiCat
    I will try that and hopefully it will do something. Because nothing is more frustrating then trying to drive down fastlane in a bicycle.

    So if I hide some of the icons, will they be difficult to find again if I need them? Dumb question, I know.

    I hear ya. Just a note: It's been stated that the Storm may take a longer while than other BB's to come back to life, so if it doesn't do anything right away, give it a few more minutes or so after the pull.
    I guess that alone scared a few people!

    I pulled it and it is still trying to recover. We'll see I guess

    Just hit the Blackberry button on the screen with all your icons and select show all. I'm a little OCD so I hide everything I don't use daily and unhide when I need

    So I'm up and running. Things are a little quicker. I think I'll try hiding some icons also, that might help. I haven't customized it at all yet.

    Lol. Thanks - it's from a book a friend lent to me, honestly funny as Heck - "Lamb: the gospel according to Biff, Christ's childhood pal" by author Christopher Moore.
    Good stuff.

    Welcome to the wonderful addiction known as CRACKBERRY, U R amongst friends here so don't ever be afraid to ask questions!

    I wanted a storm so bad until I tried Storms belonging to friends and I must say I was not impressed with the device and will stick with my beloved Curve until something better comes along..
