    I have held onto a blackberry smartphone for the past 7 years, reliable, trusty and durable phone. I was getting tired of waiting 4 RIM to put out a new age phone. Got bored with my BB os and want something new. So, this post is to say lata, to my bold! From crack berry to tipb.

    My Storm was my first BB and I have been eligible for a upgrade since Sept. I was contemplating on getting a Incredible then to leave my BB as I have went thru 4-5 Storms. Even went as far as to being half way through signing a new contract but backed out with hopes of a ViP one day soon. Boy am I happy. Bye Bye Storm... U wont be missed but will be kept for a backup

    I have had my Storm for about 2 years and I am sooooooo ready to get rid of it. If RIM would let us Storm users know that something is in the works then I may have been willing to stick around but some specs that will be outdated when its released in Q3 will be less than average I will be getting my iPhone on the 3rd...GOODBYE RIM SINCE YOU REFUSE TO GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER!!!

    as a former bb user and someone who jumped ship over a year ago, I had ever bb known to man in a 2 year span, pearl, curve, storm 1 and 2, tour... None of you will miss them lol ... maybe bbm and the LED.. butttt the iPhone has such an easier UI, you'll find out that life without bbm and led is fantassstic lol

    I have had a curve, S1, and a S2. All of them have been terrible. The BB OS is antiquated and the amount of RAM loaded on the device is not nearly enough to run the OS and a typical number of apps, when you take into account the memory leaks. Therefore, a typical person has to do full battery pulls at least once every two days. Then you must wait ten minutes as the phone reboots. I have never had a phone take this long to reboot. Heck not even my old POS HP desktop didn't take this long to reboot in its last days. The S1 and S2 designs are terrible. The hepatic screen goes after one month of usage. After that you get the common multi-click bug. So far no amount of tweaking the screen settings have solved the issue. Finally we have the issue with the lack of apps in the BB app store. The apps for BB can described with one word, ****ty. The app selection has not improved one bit since the launch of the BB app store. I have zero confidence RIM will ever get its act together.

    I cannot wait to get rid of this phone.

    Whatsapp works on Android and iPhone... its pretty much just like BBM. I use it extensively. So much that I was able to knock down my text plan to the 250 a month tier.

    Yup . . I had the original Storm for a year. Last February, I upgraded to the Storm2, hoping for better results . . . nope, still sucked. I really wanted to like it but all the well documented problems associated with the Storms got old quick.

    Now I'm paying full retail for 2 Verizon iPhones (wife and I), and couldn't be happier to get rid of those Storms.

    I feel you man, I thought BB would have their stuff together by now more so than they do. The Torch is a pretty decent phone and, for the most part, up to par with a more modern outlook. But, since it is stuck on AT&T its not even an option for me. Oh well, it doesn't matter at this point. Ive held onto my BB Storm 1 & 2 for far too long now. Ever since I got my iPad, my BB has had no love from me, lol. Verizon iPhone 4 FTW!

    I had the iPhone 3G for 3 years. Went to a Bold 9700 which only lasted 1 month before I sold it and went and got an iPhone 4 Liked the battery life and the LED but that was about it. Couldn't surf the web worth crap. Jailbroke the i4 and loving it since September.

    I waited in line on the release date for the 1st storm and was so excited. But reality kicked in real quick wit that piece of sh!t. The os was ridiculous, the hardware? Forgetaboutit. I went from the 7250, 8700, 8830, 4 BB s1. Then the tour and now bold. whewwwww. Good bye bbm, hello FaceTime. I'm all in babes!

    Bye Bye 9650. The screen is too small and the browser is lousy.

    I love the security of RIM though. We'll see how it is with Apple.

    I don't rule out the possibility of going back to RIM.
