I think that it is crap that AT&T gets to get Verizon's Storm when Verizon can't even get the iPhone, fair trade? Not! What is up with that?

hmcougar09- i think they are giving them it cause it is still a bad phone, and they try copying the iphone with the opening instead of just changing pictures. its not a fair trade on atts part cause they get the good phones and verizon gets bad phones. screw them though. storm 2 gsm and cdma then like the tour? VZWfangirl- the tour is on the table and the storm is in the trash 30 ft away. it doesnt even come close to the tour. the tour is like they savior now like the iphone was for att and the g1/g2 was for t mob, and instinct, instinct 2, and palm pre ALL were, but failed.Im with t mobile and the tour is the only cdma phone i want to atleast use cause i loved the bold and javelin. i hate when people say its a mix of a bold and storm...that makes it a bad, laggy phone! techie123- You are right about the sales cause it has a sim card. no need for att unless your upgrading. people complain about the click screen and go straight to iphone. i think the versa is better than that. and i HATE lg.but thats such a nice phone. and if its not a fair trade, then why do you say vzw would atleast double in att sales? thats like saying it IS a fair trade.... gba2000- amen to that, brotha

i cant believe it, when the first storm came out, verizon got it. it was a failure at 1st until recent updates and then the 2nd storm come out. the storm 2 is going to be better than the original one and att got it. i mean verizon had to live with a crappy phone at the begining and then when the 2nd one comes out att gets it. shouldnt the iphone be for verizon then? storm was exclusive for verizon i think and then the storm 2 isnt? isnt fair!

The storm sucks anyway...its not nearly as fast as the iphone...i just bought an iphone this past Sunday and can finally see what all the hype is about...its clearly the best phone out on the market and no phone can match it...although i havnt used the palm pre yet..based on some reviews im sure the iphone still remains king..oh and i actually hope that verizon does get the iphone because being an att customer, i am sick and tired of hearing this coverage bull that verizon is so much better (coverage available is really based on where you live)...so maybe att would then improve their coverage to get ahead in the competition...i definately think that their network is already faster...and for people complaining about att getting the storm, before the storm came out, RIM sold the most handsets on att...so y shouldnt they get more Blackberry devices??? call me biased i really dont give a f*ck...

eh...the pre is ok. i was super excited before it came out...but then once i got a chance to play with it, i really wasn't that impressed. i AM somewhat excited for the Hero, but a lot of the reviews i've read say that the processor really REALLY lags. so that's got me a little worried :-/

Why are some of you guys having a prob with this also being on at&t, I mean, don't blame the carrier, blame RIM if anything, but even so, I'm glad it's happening because attetion on the iPhone will begin to fade, and we might get a nice Android phone on the carrier...say, uhm...the Hero? =/

Would you children pls grow up. First of all the 1st storm wasnt crap. It had its issues sure but it was still a solid device. As far as people complaining about updates to the storm them being made that is, what about the upgrades made to computers I dont har any complaints about them people are glad to get them so there computer will operate better. As far as VZW getting the iphone rumor control has it that theyll have it about august of next year if Apple can get there heads out of there collective A@#$#.

Hilarious bickering, considering AT&T's network is so shot in my area, I have a dead zone just down the street. The Blackberry OS is still one of the smoothest out there, capable of balancing business with pleasure, appropriately. I thought the Storm had potential; the browser was the best for BB, the camera interface was solid, media looked great on the screen, the feel of the phone was well-weighted and assuring in quality. Failure came to optimization, but it was a first-gen product. SurePress, most of all, needed to be tweaked. Too much movement and abyssmal sensitivity, but I keep thinking I can highlight what I am about to press on other phones without actually triggering a shortcut. So, they did something right.
