who is already thinking of going back to their storm or exchanging for a stotm 2?
I was just curious about how former storm users are feeling about your Droid. I am having a tough time setting up my exchange email. On my droid. I'm gonna keep trying but if I can't get It to work this will be a deal breaker for me. I started using the touchdown app and I can only get contacts and tasks to sync.
There are various other issues that are not necessarily deal breakers, but added with the exchange issue, I gotta say, I'm thinking about things.
A few other issues:
the Facebook apparently isn't what I thought it would be.
having trouble getting used to the physical keyboard. (Only been a few days though)
on alarms, you can't use your ringtones.
Not too impressed with the way it handles email in general.
Can't send Mms to certain people.
So who is thinking about the move? What other issues are you having? Any dealbreakers?

Only got mine yesterday but as of now I have no intention of going back to my S1. My email set-up has been seamless, even the non-Gmail accounts. It didn't even ask me for POP or SMTP info. The only thing I had to deal with with my cox account was new mail notifications until I went through and marked them all read.
One issue for me and marketplace is choosing the best apps. There are so many, I've mostly gone by user reviews but then that's not always a good guide.

Not a chance I would go back to something so locked down and slow compared. I understand there are issues but others have gotten their sync just fine so I am sure if you keep at it you will get it. This is not a Droid can't do it thing.
Anyways I would keep at it. Or you can go back to memory watching and battery pulls and only loading 5 apps cause the system can't take more.
I loved my storm while I had it. But the Droid hands down works faster and smoother.

If the ringtone you want to use is a song, go to Music, find the song you want, hit the menu button, and set the song as your ringtone. Now, go to your alarm and the song will be listed as an option. This is true even after you change your phone ringtone back to something other than the song.

Only thing that had be worried, was the ability to update/sync my corporate email. I hooked up google calendar sync and tested it out. Yes my personal and business calendars are mixed, but i can live with that. No way am i going back to the storm now.

Just swapped to this from the pearl... No way in hell Im switching back... However this thing has been a PITA to say the least (as far as initial setup goes). Still messing with things... Need to get workaround for yahoo mail going, just downloaded motoConnect and cant wait to see what it does. NEED flash on this thing BAD but all in due time I guess.

I'm staying as well. I had a little problem getting my exhange calendar to sync but did some research and found I needed to add the account through the Corporate Calendar and not through email or Accounts and Sync. When I removed and readded through the corporate calendar, it synced all emails, contacts, and calendar events.
Always will be a crackberry addict at heart, but don't see myself going back anytime soon.

It has only been a few days but it is no way in Hell, that I would go back to the BlackBerry Storm 2. I only had the Storm 2 for a week and was not impressed, because I had the Storm 1 since November 21st 2008 and labored through many updates but it was never as good as the DROID!
