We have users here at work on it. Sometimes it seems to slow to a crawl. One point it took 45 sec. to respond to a simple email. Too much lag between characters. Some returned theirs.

My friend has one and i have an iphone, the iphone is definatly better overall, the blackberry isnt a real touchscreen, you actually have to press the screen like a button(it actually clicks down)

Also i didnt spend that much time on it, but the menu's seemed fairly confusing.

I stopped by a Verizon booth in the mall to play with one. Personally my first impression of the "press touch" screen is it sucks. You have to press too hard, I would prefer just regular touch screen.

I have one, and it's simply great. BTW, I've done all the research and found that the negative reviews were from people who just tried them at a store or whatever and have almost no time on the phone. Everyone that actually owns one says that they like it. BTW, the Storm has the exact same screen as the iphone, but it requires a press to click (which is their selling feature) to activate whereas the iphone is simply just a touch.

The iphone is nice, and remember the iphone when it was first released? POS with lots of updates to make it better. Same thing with the storm as there are updates in the pipeline to make it less laggy, but overall I would take it over the ijunk anyday

I guess it just depends on what you are looking for in a phone. I see people loving the iphone, and have have a few people I know that could not stand their iphone and ditched it for a BB.

Thanks Jester4.... In my reading.. it appears that those who have had the BB Storm for awhile like it.. Most but not all...

Yeah, there's people that don't like it, its not perfect. The biggest problem is people who demo them at stores and finally het their turn, is that the phone has been hammered so hard by so many people that it gets jammed up so peoples impression is tainted ?

When I tried the iphone in a mall, the phone would not even open any applications because it was so abused in that environment, even though I know its a decent phone and a standard for pda .

Hey, my first post on rr with my storm and it was almost painless.
