Well from my perspective he is wrong: I cannot take another touch screen device. I want real buttons. I want a hard screen. I use wifi all the time too: lots of advantage there.

Its all personal preference...to him the Storm is the best device...to you, the Bold...in each others eyes, you are both wrong, but to yourselves, you are both right...why does it matter what that bloke thinks anyway?

There's the one I was waiting for! There's always someone who thinks they are intelligent. Why try to make it serious?! Thanks though you are really full of unheard before wisdom.
It matters because we say it does.

You come here looking for an opinion-based response from total strangers, and you got some.
Then, you bash the people who gave them.
I don't think you could have possibly made yourself look like more of an ass than you just did.

I didn't see any opinion based answers to my questions in his post, you must be looking somewhere else. After the first four words it is just utter pretentious shite, and you are all adding to it.

example see his other post here -> Please Help Me I'm Verging on Tears :(

his phone is not working and he wants to talk smack about it he doesn't know a USB port from a BB symbol... Caspan shakes his head. we are here to help but you have to help yourself a bit first. What has this world come to a bunch of Google addicts that if the answer is not on the first page of results they are lost as to how to find the answer...

RTFM

I want your opinions to be mine?! Now you are just being stupid. We wanted to hear some opinions on why you think the Bold is better than the Storm or vice versa. Clearly I am interested because I posted it and 'the Bloke' has been sat hear interested to hear your opinions too. What has my other post got to do with anything?! If you actually read it you would see that I was sent the wrong USB cable. I've never had a BlackBerry before so does it really matter if I don't know what the BlackBerry symbol/logo looks like?! No manual comes with the phone so how the hell am I supposed to know where to put the USB if it doesn't seem to fit anywhere. It doesn't make you clever or special to know about BlackBerrys. I will go elsewhere for help in the future don't worry. There's too many angry men on this site from the looks of it.

Also I'm a 21 year old British girl not an American BlackBerry man extroidinaire and I don't "talk smack" because I am not a wannabe gangster American teenager.

it's okay.... it's just funny thats all. And I'm not American nor a teenager. People just will never learn if they don't try before asking for help. a lot of people just come here to suck information and not do any research them self. You will never learn what makes the Bold Better then the Storm unless you read read the forums see why people think the Bold is better. To listen to our opinions then make them your own so you can go back and say "Hey these 5 reasons are why mine is better then yours". You will learn them in time what makes your device better then anyone else's or why it doesn't.

Like the 3rd post said you can't argue opinion, it's an opinion for a reason... he wasn't trying to be smart or an ass it's the truth. The only thing you can do is find out why you like your device and defend those reasons like wi-fi, full keyboard but they are still just opinion that it makes it better then the other device. Other people don't want a full keyboard so I can't stress enough opinion.

Hey 21 year old non gangsta UK girl, did you figure out which end of the USB to plug i or not?

What a moronic thread. Almost as good as the one where you were about to cry yesterday.

Too funny

...and look at all you morons who came on and just had to comment. I can just imagine what you all drive like on the motorway. O2 are sending a new phone with the correct USB cable this time so hopefully it won't take me more than a few days to work out where to put it thanks for your concern. No crying today, it's sunny, I'm getting a new phone and I've got a roast dinner later.

Enjoy your roast. Hopefully you can figure that out.
No more crying. That's wonderful. Enjoy your BlackBerry. Keep all papers so you can return it.

Ah...I needed this thread for a good laugh this morning. You're both wrong! The 8900 Curve is better! It just is.

Oh, and every blackberry comes with a manual on the CD that was included.

Comedy. Sheer comedy.

This is just what I needed to read after my crappy morning. Thanks for the entertainment guys .

As previously stated, it is a matter of preference. I would prefer the Bold over the Storm, myself. Others may not. That doesn't make one device better than the other. They still have basically the same functionality and capabilities with the exception of a physical keyboard and WiFi.
