    A fellow OTer played with the one at the store and said it was awesome... of course he didn't get to dig into all the features but im sure it will take some getting used too. We get ours on monday. :(

    Played with it a little at the VZW store. Thought it was a little bit laggy on the menus.

    I got my storm the day it came out and i love it. The plan i got is $80 a month with unlimited data, 500 out of verizon texts and unlimited verizon texts (everyone around here is verizon) 450 talk minutes. I really haven't noticed any lag problems with the phone. I really like the smart click for texting and internet surfing.

    Other than being a touch screen phone, how does the storm compare to the bold? I am pretty interested in the storm, but I really don't like the fact that it doesn't have wifi.

    I got a Bold and my buddy got a storm. Bold blows the storm away for corporate use. For personal use, I might go for the storm, but have become partial to keyboards.

    crackberry posted an OS update for the storm.... Im doing the install now. My storm was fine, but my friends was a flaming pile of shit. He said the install helped him big time so if you have a storm you should do the update, from the replies I've been reading it sounds like it runs faster and smoother.

    I'm posting from my fiancees new storm, this thing rocks! I think i`ll get one in jan when I'm eligible for an upgrade. I`ve been through 8 Venus's an I'm sick of it. Nice phone, but totally unreliable...
