I'm sure this topic has been beat to death. I have done a search and I have read the forums quite a bit and they have always led me in the right direction.
I currently use a TMO Curve and I am very efficient with the physical keyboard. I have used the Storm in the store and can type surprisingly quick more accurate than I expected. I like the iPhone (shhhh), but I won't be happy with it long term because I am very much loyal to the Blackberry family. My question is, many many people reported issues when the Storm first came out, but when I was playing with it in the store, I really didn't have much of a problem with it. To be honest, it was actually pretty nice. Were the issues fixed with updates or am I just missing something?
Also, the touchscreen is really nice, but it's nice having a wheel/ball to move character by character in editing situations. Will I ever get used to not having a wheel/ball? Have any of you gotten used to not having a ball?
Also, I use a lot of minutes, but Verizon is so expensive. I currently have TMO with the HotSpot @ Home and that saves quite a bit on my minute usage. From what I read, Skype wouldn't really work because you need UMA. Is that true? Does anyone use Skype (or something else) with your Storm?
Anyway, thank you again for all the help in the past and I really appreciate the time people take to answer questions.
I just want to know if the Storm is really a worth-while device or if I should stay with the Curve. I know it's personal preference, but I don't have that much experience with the Storm.
Ok, now I'm starting to ramble, so I'll end here.
