Depends on which your carrier supports.

Bold is GSM 3G

Storm is CDMA 3G and GSM EDGE 2G

At least in North America that is.

I always recommend users to go a retail store and play with the different models. The keyboard is your interface and you have to be comfortable with the type and style. In very very general terms, the Storm is more multimedia-oriented and combines a touch screen (ala the iPhone) with a huge screen. But that means no physical keyboard. I could simply not get used to the Storm's virtual keyboard making it a complete non-starter for me. The Bold has the best keyboard ever on a BlackBerry IMHO. While it does multimedia stuff ok, it's focus is still business. Biggest screen on a BlackBerry with a physical keyboard, but way smaller than the Storm's. I prefer the overall size of the Curve to the Bold, but the Curve's keyboard is second best when compared to the Bold.

Again, in super general terms:
If your focus is multimedia like YouTube, pictures, videos, etc: Storm
If your primary reason for a Blackberry is email, and you send lots of 'em daily: Bold

I agree with rambo. Although sometimes it is not so easy to get an effective working model
