    So its been a very busy day in my world with relationship problems and also talking to my ex before this one just for the fun of it to get my mind off my latest one. Anyways my ex offered me a line on her paid plan to get me off my Alltel prepaid and she also offered me her upgrade so I have a chance to get the Blackberry Storm for $53 including tax.

    Now I am wanting to know has anyone purchased the storm and if so what are your reviews on it? I have till Saturday to make my decision on what phone I want to get so please let me know. Also if you have the storm are there any applications / downloads I should get to make it better?

    I know someone whos using the Storm...Only advice that was given; stay the F away from it. You type F, it'll come out as D. Not because you got thick thumbs but because the qwerty touchscreen pad just suck. Not developed. Not even for the newest Storm available. Bold breaks down too often (locks & dies). So I went with the choice of a Curve which I've had for a mere 24 hours. Let's see how it goes for that..I heard it should be slightly better than the Bold, but I wouldn't be going for the Storm...Nothing else you can choose???

    iPhone doesnt have BBM...Free chat service with all your business connections + friends. Great pushmail and the QWERTY on a BB is awesome (minus the Storm). Even now I'm starting to type faster by the hour

    G1. Fucking fantastic phone, loads of free apps, good keyboard, I have one and it's the best phone I've ever had. Google mail, Google chat, good browser. If you want a decent keyboard, thats the one.

    NOT the G2....

    Hmm.. I actually love my Storm. Had it for 4 months so far & never had an issue. Latest OS installed, BBM 5.0 & the best browser of the Blackberry line so far.

    Has anybody seen the Blackberry Onyx yet? I think its due out in the fall & also looks like a great phone.
