    I think I will be grabbing one next month. OS6 with webkit, 512 MB and 5MP camera is good enough for me. You can keep the rest.

    I enjoy not having to have a battery charger permanently plugged into my phone.

    It's hard me to justify to myself for blowing my yearly upgrade to go from a Storm 2 to S2-refresh just for a new OS and webkit and memory.

    Yeah I hear ya.

    For me, I'm only interested in a BlackBerry OS, and only interested in touchscreen phones, and LOVE surepress, and hate AT&T's service in my area.

    Pretty much cuts it down to one kind of phone lol, and with a S2 refresh next month, I don't see a Storm3 for at least another 10-12 months.

    If there ever was an option with VodafoneUK, they would expect me to extend my contract by another 18 months at least.

    The refresh IMO will also be out of date when it comes out, compared to the competition.

    So NO, I would rather saw of my right testicle with a rusty spoon.

    Ahm, Dave. You said the "D" word. I'm telling Mom!

    No way in **** I'd buy this s2 refresh. Doing that tells RIM that only upgrades in memory and OS (which should have been available for the original s2) are good enough. I think you'd be a fool to waste an upgrade on the refresh.

    Like Dave, I am considering droid. It is looking more appealing as time goes on.

    like I've said for months, I'm, not married to any particular phone, so at some point, I suppose it's possible I'll switch to another platform. for now, I'm keeping (and am generally pleased with) my S2.

    I would get a S2-Refresh if I had a Storm 1 but I'll pass and get the Storm 3 or 4 (whatever the next number is).

    I'll wait for fall of next year and see what's in the offering then, screw getting a refresh. Technically the S2 is a refresh on the S1 but depends on who's being asked.

    so wait i just got this s2 for nuttin??? and yea my battery is AWFUL!!!
    @BigSupa - you just might want to see if a new battery might fix that! Only time I saw something like that on my S2 was after a software load, and it was 75% drain. Went away after I reset discharge rate. This is my normal discharge under heavy usage.

    i think that they should make the storm on all carriers. i use a 9550 right now with AT&T. amazing phone. love everything about it. just no 3G service. if RIM made the S2 or S3 on AT&T i would definitely get it over the torch. my att upgrade is in nov. and im only using this s2 as a 2month temp phone. i mean i love this phone, just it not being a legit at&t phone, making it crippled in some areas just sucks.. i cant switch to Verizon since my contract with att expires in 2012 i think lol.

    but yeah i agree with that iPhone 3GS thing.

    i mean yes i bought one.. but i had a curve 8310 at the time and made the switch to the 3gs which only lasted about 4 months before getting a 9700 lol. then some how i wound up with a 9550

    Agreed! Ripoff! But I'm still going to get it. My ol' lady is stuck with the S1 and her line is up for an upgrade now. So I'll just give her my S2 and keep the S2R for myself.

    Btw, anyone know why they aren't putting 1gb instead of 512mb? Is RIM really that stupid?

    They will do that when they release the Storm2 Refresh, Version 2 PROPER, UNRATED EDITION.

    By that time, all other competitors phones will have 1TB of on-board memory!

    Biggest ripoff. Im waiting for Storm 3 if they improve. Yesterday i switched to Android and I couldnt have been more happier. Android finally grabbed me. It was looking good day by day and I finally caved in.

    Truthfully the Android can do anything the Blackberry can do. Email isnt a big of deal to me as long as its pushed within 30 Min which the droid can do and yes the droid does push email

    Agreed. Can't believe they have even thought of doing this. I for one thought the S2 would be up there for the auto-update to OS6. I was just pondering to myself today whether I will jump on the Torch when it arrives here next month on O2UK or hold out for the S3. Hmmm.

    Ok so I reset the discharge rate and I'll check later..how long after did it take to go to somewhat normalization ?

    Thanks in advance...
