    Hey everyone. I thought i'd give RIM another shot. Sold my i4 the first week in Dec, and bought a Torch. Bad mistake. Six weeks later, I sold the 9800 on CB, and went to AT&T and bought a new i4-it feels good. glad to be back!

    Why did you buy the Torch in the first place? (not trying to start an argument, honestly curious)

    I had to give RIM one last try, OS6 was supposed to be revolutionary, but as it turned out it was a few bells and whistles above OS5.

    ...welcome back, Pilsbury.

    I've tried, and tried various BlackBerry's, and I ALWAYS end up back with the iPhone 4.

    Albeit, tomorrow, I'm testing the Samsung Captivate for a few days

    Fair enough...they did make a big story about OS6 for a while before the Torch came out, i was honestly curious what they were going to change that would retain what BB users already loved but also jettison them into the next level of cell phone tech.

    Having played with the Torch for just a brief time one day, i noticed that the phone felt a little clumsily built...you had it longer, did you find its build quality lack luster? What was your review as far as the build of their first slider phone?

    Thanks Naviculture.
    Sean, the weight wasn't a problem. The physical keyboard is unlike the traditional Berry keyboards like the 9000 and 9700, it's very hard to type on. The webkit, while an improvement over previous browsers, is still very laggy. The screen resolution is OK, but since I went to the 9800 from an i4, it just didnt cut it. Lastly, what I disliked the most was the almost daily battery pull, it's 2011, is this still necessary? If I had never owned the i4 before the 9800, I would probably kept it, but the i4 is such a smooth powerful device, I had to go back.
