    Should I or Shouldn't I......

    Advertisement



    Ok, I am currently on T-Mobile and am using an unlocked Storm. It's a good phone, sometimes laggy, nice screen, etc. I have an opportunity to trade it in for an 8900.

    Any positives or negatives you can give me if I switch? Is the 8900 that much better?

    Thanks for the help!!

    You can definitely type faster on 8900. I don't like touch screen phones so I'd go for it.

    Prob gain a more stable phone at the cost of losing the touchability factor. At the end of the day, it's still a blackberry either way so you can't go wrong!

    The Storm relies on the right OS even moreso than most BB's. I play with 5 of my friends Storms and this place is a great resource: http://www.blackberryos.com

    I think it a positive option for you. I would go for it. The 8900 is worth it, but I've never ownned a storm but have played with them and I prefer the 8900.

    I own an 8900 and have used a storm as well. Truth is, I have not yet found a touchscreen yet that really did it for me. I find them too quirky. But that is me. And I would not like losing some of the functionality that my 8900 has that the Storm does not. Just my 2 cents.

    Go for the 8900. I tested the Storm and didn't like it. The typing drove me nuts.

    How is the volume level for the earpiece on the 8900. I hear it is a little on the weak side. How is the external spreaker?

    Both ear piece and external speaker are great. I was shocked at how load the extrernal speaker was.
