Blackberry Storm typing to Iphone typing- Ready?
I had the first blackberry storm when it first came out Dec 08, then October 09 i got the storm 2 and i have had it since. I love the typing on it. I am so fast and love it. But i am sick of BB and the slow internet and want to go for the iphone. How do you think it will be to learn how to type on the iphone? I have the ipod touch and i try typing on that and its not too bad but what do you guys think? Anyone else going from storm 2 to iphone?

I also have the BB Storm 2. I like typing on the iPhone. It's very persise and accurate. The storm click screen it the worse creation and is the worse for speed. I can not wait to switch phone. Rim really messed things up with the storm. They never gave a crap about the consumer. There upgrade are the worse and the latest was crappy. I can't believe they made the os 6 and refused to include storm users. By far, the curve was Rims best and they messed that up with the os. Anyway, good luck and enjoy the new typing on the iPhone...

I've had the S1 since release and just pre-ordered the iPhone4, I went skiing and to Vegas with my friends and I was playing around with his iPhone and it seems like a pretty seamless transition, not too much to get used to just dont push too hard on the screen waiting for it to click. I don't aniticipate any problems and only give myself a week or so as my learning curve

Its weird, i am looking foward to the iphone but i honestly loved typing on the storm 2. i really got used to it. the phone drives me crazy, when i open a BBM it takes 15 sec to actually open and sometimes when i type its laggy but i am sure i will get used to the iphone. Blackberry did blow it. The storm had potential but they forget about it and let it be. I didnt even download the latest upgrade.

I am moving from the storm2 to iPhone...don't expect a difficult transition, I was using my iPod touch for my email for the two weeks that rim email and data was down in the west. Actually, I think it will be easier on my thumbs, perhaps I won't develop arthritis at a later age, lol!

In preparation of getting the iPhone 4 on VZW. I just literally sold my Blackberry Storm 2 on craigslist...not bad...I got $80 bucks for it. I had it since day 1 when it was released. So, I'm happy. Not happy with the garbage LG Envy 2 that I'm using for today and partly tomorrow until the iPhone arrives. I liked the typing on the BB S2 as well. Hope its as good or better on the iPhone.

I'm currently using a Storm 2 and the only thing I will miss is being able to capitalize by just holding the letter longer. I have been using my iPod touch for a while and like typing on it just as well as my BB.32g ViP: February 7, 2011 8:32am CST

I dont know what it is about BBM. but i love it. yet when i get a BBM and click on it, it takes 15-20 sec to actually open the conversation. drives me crazy.. But i love the typing and bbm. I know i will catch on to iphone, hopefully. But i love love love the fact i can have my ipod and phone in one. I never put music on storm, idk why just never did but with itunes on the phone i would be set and faster internet.
