    I must admit if feels like you are reading my mind. I was a Verizon customer in the past and did not expect to return, even as recently as earlier this week, however the pull is getting stronger as the Bold fades into the distance of my rear view mirror.

    Wow.... Cherri, I've said it before and I'm going to say it again, YOU have, and continue to do, a fantastic job of writing and creating wonderful articles for all of us lucky PinStack members along with those who are finding this site for the very first time. I am continually amazed at the pace at which you are evolving into a first class reporter of all things BlackBerry.

    Your headline article "PinStack Week In Review" began as one of the articles that I enjoyed reading on a Saturday morning. It has now turned into _The_ First_ Article_ that I Rush To Read, coffee in hand, on Saturday morning. I find it compelling, comprehensive, enjoyable and incredibly important. Like everyone else I'm really busy during the week and do not always have the opportunity to stay as up to date as I might wish in the world of BlackBerrys. Now I know that I can count on your "PinStack Week in Review" to bring me up to date and in the know.

    Thanks Cherri, and you enjoy your weekend!

    I also never thougt I would be going back to verizon. I however am questioning now if I will be staying. The bigest problem I don't know if I should atribute to thew network or to the cdma curve. But my call quality on my t-mo 8320 was better than my 8330 I have been using for the past 3 weeks. Monday I will be going back to a prepaid while I await the storm. Call quality or not, it is the screens realestatw tht has made up my mind for me.

    Here's my take when it comes to carriers, as I've used them all and long enough to give them a fair evaluation. First one should pick the best carrier, and not go to them for the device. After all your call quality is important and so is connectivity. That said, I am fortunate to live in a city where they all work quite well. And yet I travel quite a bit for both work and pleasure and AT&T has been the very best hands down. So for me to migrate one of my lines to Verizon just to get the Storm, I must remind myself that I can only use it locally. That in itself is not a problem as I have two lines, the other is T-Mobile. So I could sacrifice T-Mo and go (back) to Verizon. Frankly at this point, I'm going to challenge myself to be patient (who am I kidding..) and try and wait until they are selling and the feedback is showing up here in the forum as to how well the phone is working and what if any bugs there are.....

    Did I just say I would wait?.....

    Cheers

    my son and i were just discussing this today, as he saw the new commercial for the storm on television and asked if i would be getting it (he wants a hand-me-down BB sooo bad ) i had to explain to him that the reason (and ONLY reason) why i stay with ATT is because of the service. i am not sure how verizon is here in my area, but do know that a tmo phone or a sprint phone will have ZERO signal in my house and on some of the back roads that i take (i have had sprint in the past and friends also on tmo). signal/service are VERY important to me as i don't plan on moving anytime soon. with that said, i may visit a local verizon store and let the reps earn their paycheck by discussing these concerns they may just turn me into a verizon customer ... we'll see.
