    Actually my gf of 25 yrs went about it this way. Not the most tech savvy to start with and just loved the BB for it's battery and call quality. Within 6 months and some instruction from she was a pro at the thing.
    Just remember, everyone has to start somewhere.

    True story. I guess I'm speaking more about the individuals that return a device because it's too hard to use. What that really sounds like to me is that the phone doesn't work the way they think it should. Because you're 100% people will be happy with something they know how to operate no matter their proficiency.

    I'm playing with one right now. Not bad. Not very fast. But we'll see.

    I'll admit, I was wrong

    when I said they wouldn't sell well as every store around me was old out by 9am as well - I was lucky to find a store nearby who held the last one for me (at around 1pm) - as for those who actually camped out? Man - That's the funniest thing in the world. All in all, it is still just a cell phone. I'm as into gadgets as much as the next guy but have to crack up when I hear of people lining up at 6am or camping out for a friggin phone. a liver? yes. A phone...hell no!

    Just get one online. Verizon has free overnight shipping and free activation. Wirefly.com has them for $149 with no rebate for new 2 year deal. This isn't going to be like the Wii where you can't find them.

    I went to a local store, sold out within 15 minutes of being open. I went to a local Circuit City, same thing. But the sales rep talked me into setting myself up for an order and that I'd have it by Wednesday. As I was waiting on line to put in my order, the FedEx guy arrived with 2 boxes of 20 Storms... A happy camper I was!

    Well sir, it is apparent to me that you own a blackberry, while I own a crackberry. the difference is devastating. Be happy it hasn't consumed you yet.

    Seriously though, everyone has their passions in life. While i personally did not camp out for the storm. I can assure you that for those who did......it's WELL worth it

    Check your local Costco stores. I scored one this morning, they had 2 left (Lake Zurich, IL).
