Ok I took a plunge on the new storm me using a 8830 and my Finance using her 8330 didn't want to leave our current provider so we kept our current plans etc which I recommend to any storm user until you at least test one out now she took hers back immediately it seems typing for anyone with long nails is more work then its worth me I gave it more time and have to say looks like I'm getting a bold a blackberry needs a physical keyboard period that's what its for the main reason apple gets away with out one is because its core user is not typing the majority of the time the next issue is the lag I noticed with the accelerameter which tends to be annoying don't know how some of the other stackers feel but I hear big V is getting a lot of returns what do you think
Paper trick under battery fixed most of my typing issues when typing in landscape mode. Delete VZNav right away and run Desktop Manager for an update on core applications (not full OS update till next week or so). OS update should fix alot of issues.
PS I really really enjoy my Storm.

Wow..thats got to be the longest run on sentence I've read in my entire life. At any rate, the new OS update leaked this morning .75 seems to fix A LOT of the lag issues. As far as the storm not being built as good as the curve, take one look at the battery door and tell me its not built better.
Or the glass covering over the camera parts..
Ok, it's crazy how I've had such a great experience so far! I first read to remove VZNav and that virtually eliminated any and all lag for mine! Beyond that, we've also read that the test units at Verizon are actually running an even earlier OS than .65!
As far as the long nails go... I'll have to give her that one. I can't imagine that would be easy (on any device).
That said, it's certainly a device that "takes some getting used to". For me, that time frame was about 2 hours. Just as long as it took me to understand the typing, get my apps downloaded, thumb through ALL the user settings (which the key rate and those setting REALLY helped a lot with typing speeds), and VOILA! I'm hooked. I'm literally not having ANY issues!
Almost all my software works (only RDM+ and TV Guide app don't work for me so far).
