    Why your thumbs would hurt is a mystery to me. It is a touch screen, how hard do you have to press?

    The new typing experience is work in progress for me. When I first started entering info, I misspelled like crazy, but I'm getting the hang of it. You don't have to punch down the screen, but I'm not typing as fast as I was on the LG Dare, yet. I'm NOT giving up though.

    The flip from portrait to landscape is really sensitive and I like it. My old LG Dare didn't always register that I was flipping it and a lot of times I was having to shake it to go in the direction I needed.

    I had a Pearl and loved it, went to an LG Dare (of course it's not a smartphone) and I couldn't stand it. Now, I'm back with BB and I'm NOT going back. I like this phone.

    I believe the storm is a solid unit. With any technology there will be issue here and there but software upgrades fixes that. I have a Curve 8320 as well and it had issue from time to time. So back to the storm i got a day after the release. I like the phone but it was slow then seem to speed up for some reason. The touch screen is amazing this feature is a plus in my book. I text alot and it seems to work great! Thumbs not hurting at all. You do not have to press hard where your thumbs will hurt. The only thing I am concerned with is the battery life. I charged my phone fully and by the time i go to bed which is 11pm the battery is about dead. This is with little usage. A comparison to the curve the battery is better then the storm. I believe it is because of the standby button on the curve. Which I used alot. All In all the Storm is good just need more apps for it and some themes would be nice and a software upgrade to fix minor things..

    You do know that the storm has a standby button too, right?

    I am an IT Admin who relies on my BB all day long.

    I think a lot of what we're seeing with the Storm is a lot of human nature. Not willing to accept a little change.

    Take some time and learn it before giving up on it after only a day everyone, you'll be amazed.

    I guess I'm referring to the "lock" button, how is that different to the "standby" button? (I only had a curve for a few weeks before the storm)

    Standby turned of all power until u got a call or until you took it out of that mode power saving like a computer. Locking the unit protects from pocket calling people.
