Anyone else have the new Blackberry Storm?  I got one this weekend and am still figuring it all out...but so far one really cool bonus is how easy it is to get to the Kindle Boards on the browser!  Although...as much as the boards are already tempting me away from work...this could be truly dangerous!!  :-\

I'm the same with tc. I want to upgrade my blackberry curve for it but
AT&T doesn't have it; don't know when if ever they would. So I will stick with my bb curve.

I just bring my laptop to work and use it between hair appointments.

Blackberry made a deal with Verison (sp) to carry it, much the same way as ATT is the only one to carry the IPhone. Thoughts have been going on in my mind of switching.

I was green with envy when the iphone came out only on AT&T - but couldn't bring myself to switch from Verizon.

So far I like it...the pictures are crystal clear, the sound with my bluetooth is excellent on calls, and the music plays well. The touch screen and the touch keyboard take some getting used to, but I am getting the hang of it.

I have a Blackberry Worldphone and other then the touch screen and a camera I'm not sure what is new.  I can't justify the cost right now and don't want to lock myself into a 2 year contract. Maybe if I stop buying Kindle accessories and books I can afford one someday.  :)

**Warning Shameless Endorsement**

While I don't have a cool phone, I DO have Verizon Wireless, and I can recommend them VERY highly.  Recently my SO accidentally skipped a bill and they called me to get a payment before cutting off our service! Their customer service people are really great and when I forgot my voicemail password (don't get many of them so I don't use it often), they helped me reset it, and directed me to the right portion of their website for the well-written instructions on how to change it again.  Their on-line bill pay is a bit cumbersome at times, but it is heaven-sent in this house where the mail tends to get stolen by the cats as toys.  We've been really happy Verizon customers for almost 8 years now, and have always had the best experience with them.  When I win the lottery I want a cool phone like y'all have.......

For us it was a sad day when Cingular became ATT!! After many trials and errors, we too are happy with Verizon. LOVE their customer support!! They make you feel as is you are doing them a favor by calling!

I'll agree I love Verizon and their customer service is awesome.  I had Ameritech and then it became Cingular and the service went downhill.  So I made the switch and am not sorry.

The ONLY reason we have AT&T is because, through Hubby's work, we get a 20% discount
on our service and accessories. Other than that, we would have shopped around years ago.

We used to have T-Moble which I was happy with, not to mention their customer service but we switched because of a discount too. The service in our area has gotten better, no dropped calls and better clarity. The only thing I wish...is that they'd stop changing their name :p

I have an LG Dare and love it, but I probably would have gone with the Storm if they had it back in September when we bought our new phones. Verizon is great.  I travel all over the country and I have never been without service.  They have the best coverage of any of the mobile companies.  

We had to update our phones so we could get VZ Navigator.  It's awesome.  If you travel, it's a great feature.  I no longer have to worry about getting lost or my GPS getting stolen out of my car.   :)

I due for my phone update from Vz and looking at the Storm.  Has anyone purchased it just to use as a phone or text messaging?
