Takes mine 5-7 minutes to boot to background screen. I also lag during typing, sometimes it doesnt even register what I press...RIM totally f-ed this one up and just like Electronic arts, delivered an incomplete product right before black friday and totally f-ed over the public. As always, as long as it works somewhat at sale date, these companies dont care. they will fix the problems later on, and keep us consumers in the blind and completetly pissed off.
after a crash where I have pulled the battery it takes 4:54 seconds to boot to the screen where I can enter my PIN. that is the quickest I have had it load! annoying. I also notice a lot of aftermarket car chargers fail to charge the storm! be aware! they can also cause damage.. Mine got very very hot!
seems ok now.. I ended up buying an official BB one.
