    I don't know about you guys but I am really enjoying the Droid! I am coming from a BB Storm that I had since day 1 and its like a breathe of fresh air.

    1. No more daily reboots
    2. No more having to close all apps
    3. No more constant memory watching
    4. No more waiting for the slow web page loads and every other data slow down because of BIS.
    5. No more LAG!

    I am having a hard time breaking those tendencies though. Haha. How are you guys dealing with the Crackberry withdrawal.

    I will miss PIN and BB Messenger. After Katrina BBs were the only way to communicate with cell services down.

    Come on people, you guys...grrr the Storm 1 was bad but the 2 is a lot better. It isn't nice to bite the hand that fed you for sooo long.

    It's like an ex girlfriend Liaison. You appreciated her at one point obviously or else you wouldn't had BEEN with her. But in the end she obviously gave you a reason to leave or she wouldn't be your ex.

    Now that you are in your new fresh relationship your still shellshocked from the ex's habits you appreciate the new one so much more for NOT being your ex

    Sorry but a lot better just does not cut it. Still falls way short. The Blackberry OS is pretty long in the tooth about now and is in need of a major overhaul.

    The Storm 1 was that bad and to get many of the leaked OS's to make it better in ways made it worse. THe original OS was not good at all that it came with. Coming from a dumbphone though it was great but still not very good from what I would expect.

    But yes I did have to reboot once a day. 3 days now no reboot and no memory loss. I have about 25 - 30 apps and never lags with almost all running I couldn't do that if I wanted to with the S1.

    It was a great phone while it was there but in no way does it compare to the power of this phone. imo

    Never took home the S2 as it seemed to close to the S1 when demoing it. But like others have said that is not enough time to really know about it so my comparisons are to the S1 not the S2.

    S2 could be great I really don't know but honestly this phone is so so so much more powerful than a S1. At least to me it is.

    No need to reboot after deleting an app is also a plus.

    I just upgraded to a Storm 2, and after a week, swapped it over for a Droid... Im afraid i'll have withdrawals, so hopefully email, twitter, facebook, yahoo instant messaging work as well as on my BB's.... Def wont miss battery pulls every couple hours or severe memory leaks!

    There are some great tutorials on email. There is an app called Touchdown for exchange email that people seem to be loving. Honestly I don't think you will have to much trouble get to knwo the device and you will never want to go back. This phone is so much more powerful.

    I agree, I will miss some of the apps, but man there are so many to replace them with. I am still amazed. I really liked my BB but this phone rocks.
    I have the exchange email working and I also downloaded touchdown and the interface is a lot better on touchdown. But they both work.
    Just my thoughts.

    I miss my BBM, plus I liked that a geotagged picture could have its location viewed in BB Maps. As much as I liked my Storm, I will not miss the daily reboot, reboots that took 3-4 min to complete, the constant spinning clock waiting for an app to open, opening the browser, typing in a website and watching the progress bar hang at "requesting." Blackberries are great devices, but not meant for consumers.

    I do have an addiction to my BB and I do miss her but right now, the Droid is doing everything that my BB did but faster. It's sad because I have always been a die hard BB fan, even took my friend to get her the S2 (she isn't ready for the Droid just yet). I sometimes feel like I am cheating on my BB.... **sigh**

    It sucks. But I had to jump ship already. It was getting old. Getting 1 fix and then having BB break 3 others.
