"I have owned the Iphone, curve, bold, palm, and many others...
This phone is the best so far, but it does take a bit of a learning curve to get the full potential out of this device.
With updates in the future, it will become even better, but so far i am very happy with the phone, and its nice to get service again when i leave my house and go down the road, unlike ATT. ATT has great phone, and no - let me repeat no NETWORK. And the new 3g in horrible, I tested the BLACKBERRY BOLD on WIFI at my house, vs the STORM without WIFI, just verizon's network and the Browser loaded faster on the STORM than the BOLD on WIFI..... That tells me the strength of Verizon's Network. Its amazingly FAST and RELIABLE.... GOOD JOB, and I would love to see some tweaks very soon....

"Not user friendly. Slow to react, touch screen operation intended for small skiny fingers. Nearly impossible to type in speed. weak battery . Stay away not worth it !"

"I was impressed with the phone initially, however it's starting to freeze up a lot and battery life is not good at all. I'm sure the initial problems will be worked out with new software updates."

"Great size, but functionality is horrible. Typing is a royal pain. Went back to Blackberry 8830 World edition, no camera, but much better to work with it from day-to-day with reliability. "

"Put together great and it looks great. However, the battery is trash and the processer is also trash. It is very slow to react and typing anything is a pain. "

Chris from Liverpool, England said

"Love it but it has a big handicap, as a builder i do not have small fingers, typing is a serious waste of time, the blackberry touch;screen requires a stylus for controlled operation. I have lost patience with it. Whilst at work i needed to email i had to give up, just not user friendly, good communication is key for me being self employed so now its in the cupboard collecting dust. I have reverted back to my XDA o2 touch;screen with stylus and its brilliant to use. so come on blackberry you need to make provision for a stylus...... its a great phone but i will not use it ever again so disappointed surely i am not the only one that has problems with its controls. I will have one tomorrow if it had the stylus. . ."

"THE BLACKBERRY STORM IS A GREAT LOOKING PHONE BUT THATS ABOUT ALL THE GOOD I CAN SAY ABOUT IT. I BOUGHT IT AND 2 DAYS LATER TOOK IT BACK. IT WAS DRIVING ME CRAZY. TEXTING IS A PAIN EVEN FOR A SMALL FINGERED PERSON LIKE ME. VERY SLOW, FREEZES UP NOT IMPRESSED AT ALL, I WENT BACK TO MY CURVE."

"Very nice Phone but cannot disable T9 Dictionary during typing. it is really hard to continue with T9 Dictionary. Multi Tab function in keyboard options is a temporary setting which is a really hazard. "

Lindsey from Glasgow, said

"Great phone, few faults but nothing disasterous. Folk are banging on about it being slow to react and freezing all the time - i've never had any of these problems. To be fair, you can't text nearly as quick on this as you can on a normal phone, but it's really no big deal. Long thumb nails are a problem though, I had to trim mine! However it's a joy to use, really nice to look at, great functions and sufficiently user friendly. Battery life isn't great, but again, it's not the end of the world - just remember to charge it daily and you can't go wrong. It's not rocket science! Recommend getting a screen protector (it does come with one already on it, but they do need replacing - scratched quite easily)."

"I brought this phone and its very hard to adjust to if you never had a touchscreen phone and you just need a keyboard It has continious updates. When I was about to bring it back it offered me a free update so I went for it. Now my phone doesn't freeze and I have over 50 applications. I can text fast now that I'm used to the screen and the keyboard. O and it only took me 3 days to get really adjusted to it. I've played with the iphone and its not all that and a bag of chips. I mean the 3G doesn't even have a video camera. The storm has a 3.2 megapixel camera and a recorder on the freakin 1st version. I mean people are complaining on the camera b/c it should have 5 megapixels. Its not a camera its not going to be phenominal taking pictures and this is a phone! That's what cameras are for. If you want phenominal pictures go buy a camera. The 3G has only a 2 megapixel camera so it above the iphone in that. Can the 3G type in landscape?umm lemme see. NO!! The Blackberry storm can. They had to be on their 4th iphone just to have landscape. Me and my best friend had a test between our phones and she has the 3G. My phone is faster and the music plays way louder. With that being said I would recommend this phone to anybody. B.t.w my friends adore my phone. B.t.w I'm using it right now to type this."

"this phone is unuseable. it freezes crashes the text pad is unusable if you have hot fingers. you press the pad and it will highlight a letter half way across the screen. it unlocks itself sporidically and sometimes the screen doesnt turn sideways when the phone is flipped. the signal quality is poor which also means the intern tis slow to load. the email works sporidacally. buy this phone at your peril!"
