I have to agree with everyone, I had the Storm 1, then Storm 2. Constant battery pulls, shutting down everything, so that it would barely run, and then they release a OS update, and some things on the phone get worse? How does that happen. I have had my Dinc 5 days and I don't miss my Storm 2 at all!! Best part is I traded my Storm 2 & $50 for a 1 week old Dinc!! How amazing is that??

Hello, my name is Brendan and I am a former Storm 1 and Storm 2 addict.Send from my fingers, using a pencil and a piece of paper that someone faxed to someone who scanned it and then typed it on this forum using a TRS-80 Model 3.

HAHA! I'm an ex-Crackberry addict that would constantly look for ways to make the phone better, make the screen click like its supposed to, or SOMETHING to keep me from throwing the storm into the sewer. I spend all my time on AC now instead of CB, and I don't even own an android phone!! What does that say about BlackBerry???

I owned the Storm. I really had high hopes for it. But the constant battery pulls and leaks that fixed one thing but broke another, wore me down.
What else if funny is I'm the originator of the Torx Fix, which anybody that owns the storm 1 is sure to know. Looking back on it now, even tho the fix helped a lot of users from returning their phones, it cushioned rim from having to fix their crappy phone.

I ditched my storm1 two months ago for the inc and I'm just now getting over my PTSD. What a nightmare of a phone! It took me like 2.1 seconds to pull the trigger on the inc...figured it couldn't be any worse. Turns out its light years ahead of the storm and getting better every day! Thanks HTC/verizon!

i do wish i would have sent in my BB storm several times and gotten the storm 2 like i should have, but i was too lazy. it looked like it was way better than the storm 1 when isaw it at the vzw store.
but the browser was still just so bad.
one thing i love about android is how amazing the stock browsere and dolphin hd work, amazingly fast, wifi rocks, vzw was so retarded not putting wifi on the storm, it only puts more load on their network duh!

I know this is an Android forum and that everyone just loooooooooves to bash on other platforms (and I know that is not Android-user specific), but I'm going to need to step in and play the role of the BlackBerry supporter here...
Without getting into a long debate, there are still plenty of things that BlackBerries can do that blow Android's similar functionality out of the water. Yes, there are many many things that the Android OS does better but that still doesn't change it. Want a specific example? The enterprise environment. RIM originally catered their product and all their business objectives towards the business/enterprise environment. And to this day, there is no one that is even in the same league with them on it. In fact, most Android devices to this day are blacklisted from being able to connect to corporate Exchange environments due to the lack of available security methods (thankfully Froyo's enhanced security has helped that but it still isn't anywhere near RIM).
What RIM has designed their devices to do, they do extremely well. And yes, they are missing a ton of things that tech geeks like myself have come to know and love on their advanced devices. But frankly, I don't think RIM cares too much. They've still got the strongest market share and there's a reason for it.
It's for reasons like the one above and many others that I still have an active personal BlackBerry 9700 right along side my Nexus One.

I'm on CB under this exact name and I was a die hard BlackBerry fan, my first smartphone was a BB 8330 then a 9530....after 2 yrs,I couldn't get off that damn ship fast enough.
I hope for RIM's sake,they can get back in the game...I just won't be looking back to check on them.

They keep recycling the same OS for a phone they wanted more geared more towards entertainment, they will not get anywhere.
