    I hear ya on that one. I will be dumping a Storm 2 in favor of a droid phone, in the not too distant future. The specs on these blackberrys aren't good enough to keep up with the apps. Not enough memory, way underpowered, my Storm 2 is always bogging down.

    First post here, BB Storm 1 and current Storm 2 owner. Been in denial for a while. Played with the EVO and saw the light. Will be ordering my Droid X in just a few hours on VZW.com.

    Absolutely cannot wait. I returned my wifes BB 9650 last week for a Moto Droid and have been playing with that for the past week(already rooted and installed Kangerade). Fallen in love with Android. BlackBerry is obviously on its way out. Do they really think the minor updates in OS6 are enough? R.I.P. RIM
    Wow, Nate is even here!

    I would be jumping ship today, but alas, the wife said NO when I asked to make the move. I was just going to add a new line, but she is standing fast. Damn.

    So I am stuck with the Storm 2 for a little longer...

    Glad to see natemz here. This place is much better than our usual hangouts man. I am ditching this antiquated bb tour. It was outdated before it even came out... I was such an ***** then...

    Why is everyone so surprised that I'm going Droid lmao


    I love RIM. I have been a longtime supporter. But they just havent figured out what they need to do to win over the consumer crowd. If they arent careful they will lose the business side as well.

    Great to see you here Natemz! I've been rocking your awesome BBampd theme on my BB Tour for a long time ... which is going to be replaced by a DX. Looking forward to any of your Android projects!

    Unfortunately, I'm not due for an upgrade from my Tour until August. As soon as August 6 comes, good by BB!
    Call Verizon. You should be able to upgrade now. My upgrade date was August 18 and I ordered mine early this morning.

    Hi guys and gals! I am a BB user and getting ready to jump ship. Does anyone know if the Droid X has a universal Inbox natively?

    I've had no problems with using my previous BB chargers on my Droid and now they're fine with the Droid X too.

    I'm seriously thinking of taping mine to an M-80 and enjoying the hell out of watching it blow to pieces.

    As soon as my Droid X comes tomorrow I will officially be off BlackBerry. Have been using the Storm 2. I liked it but needed something new.

    And like everyone else I will miss BBM and not to much more.

    I switched from the Storm and it seems pretty cool, does anyone know if I can get my apps that were purchased on BB App world or do you have to rebuy them. The BB has an option to turn off the wirelees signal when charging( bedside mode) anything like that on the X?

    To answer your question about AppWorld apps; someone else had this question a while ago and the answer, I believe, was that they had to be repurchased.

    I'm in the same boat... I have a 2 yr and am eligible for upgrade Sep 9th.... That was the original contract I signed for the Storm 1!!! I went through 5 S1s and am using a Tour that VZW CS sent me... Either way, I'm not impressed with the BB 6 videos and am definitely switching to DX when I can.

    I called and had a chat with them (vz) online today. They indicated that I need to wait till July 26th when my new every two is up. What a crock, I have to do like 25 battery pulls a day on this Storm (1). It is such a pos that I want to throw it against the wall most days.

    Been a dedicated VZW customer for going on 13 years and they never give me any breaks. If VZW Management is lurking here, please know that you have a severely upset customer. By the time July 26th roles around they probably won't have any Droid "X"'s to ship me or sell me in the store.

    Oh well, thought of leaving VZW but their service is way better than anyone else here in Indiana.

    Ok thanks I am done venting!

    I loved BerryBuzz for my BlackBerry too and I did find an Android app for this but it had bad reviews and said it didn't work all that well. If I find it again, I'll hit you up but you might not want it.

    If someone knows of one that works, let us know 'cause I really liked it.

    Yeah they actually have a Documents to Go. And one called QuickOffice. Quickoffice I think is better as having used both.
