I also forgot the horrible screen resolution compared to the storm & the speaker doesn't hold a candle to the storm. I had a bluetooth wireless handsfree speakerphone for my older BB, but sold it when the Storm came along - it just isn't needed anymore. But you can hardly have a speakerphone conversation with the Omnia, unless you are in a closed quiet room - no way while driving down a busy road.

I also forget to mention the horrible battery life. The phone lasted for about 4 hours, and then I had to charge it. I fully charged it, and it lasted for another 4 hours, and as soon as I put in the car charger I started to get battery low errors. The car charger only seemed to charge if the phone wasn't being used at all. It was a constant pain through my entire trip. Very disappointing vs. the Storm. I did use the wi-fi, but this was a huge battery drain and was a decision based on how important the wi-fi time was versus the drain. This isn't a choice you should need to consider when wanting to use a function on your phone.
