    Smile Dumped the Storm - Back to Bold

    Advertisement



    Well, guys, it's like this...
    A friend wanted a Storm badly ! I wanted to get back to Bold ! Guess what ? Happy ending for both of us !
    I'm glad to be back to WiFi and especially a qwerty keyboard.
    Altough I liked the Storm, I personally found it very tiring to type any length of sms or email - and to edit or create a new document with Doc's To Go was a definite no,no !
    I'll wait for RIM to come out with a touch screen that is more user friendly. I thought the use of highlight and press to select was good at the time, but when you have to really type it's time consuming and actually frustrating.
    I'm not going to open a "benefit" discussion on the Bold - I had it before and admit I was silly to change.
    But this thread could possibly be used to get the pinstackers to comment on the benefits of a qwerty keyboard (or to get RIM to design a better touch screen), and especially, the need for all BB's to have WiFi as standard
    What do you say ?

    I tried a friend's Storm 2 weeks ago and I think she may have gotten hers from a recent batch because I found it easy to type on. What I had problems with was trying to press icons on different areas on the screen. I was trying to help her activate the password on one of her accounts and I had to press really hard on the screen to get it to recognize I had pressed anything on the screen.

    ...that too. But not all the time, and usually it always had "to think" for a while before it changed. Not really a gripe, but always an aggravation.
    also the key-lock . It never locked - all you have to do is press any button at the bottom and voilŕ it was working. Not nice !
    Unless, of course, there was something wrong with mine...

    Yeah I experienced the "thinking" on my friend's Storm but that was just because we were in an area with bad reception for most carriers.

    I'm with you, Greg. Got to have a keyboard...at least until keyboards are no longer necessary because everything is done by voice.

    yep...I was reborn !
    Pity all the lost souls out there.
    And lack of wifi on Storm? No comments ? Or is this also a "religious canon" not worth mentioning?
    Catside how do you manage it?
