Default Bye Bye Bold.. Hello Storm 2

Please Login to Remove!

Vodafone got sick of my complainning about my bolds (i've had 9 since april) and decided to offer me the chance to change models.. since the Storm2 is the only other device that offers both 3G and Wifi support (the reason why i bought the Bold in the 1st place) - i've plumbed for it.

its on my desk next to me, in its box.. all sealed.

have i made the right choice? - i suppose only time will tell.. :(

Bold 2 in the house.. i should have just held out for this, forget the storm 2..
Youtube doesnt work on OS5, or at least not on this one.. and some of the apps i used to have on the 9000, dont seem to be in blackberry app world no more, so presume they aint compatable

Yeah, how does the bold 2 keyboard compare to the bold 9000? Also, does the bold 9700 look nicer or the bold 9000?

Nine Bolds! That's astonishing. Makes me appreciate mine all the more.

I too am undecided whether to go for the Storm 2 or the Bold 9700. The Storm 2 looks much smoother than its predecessor though.

I've never had a touchscreen before either.
