The 9500 handles GSM much better.

i used to have the 9530 unlocked for verizon and the service wasn't very good.

what exactly is the difference between the 9500 and the 9530?
is the unlocking process the same? just enter the code?

also, i am debating between the storm and the 8900.

what would you choose?

thanks,
ipaqman

The 9530 is made for CDMA carriers, and only has GSM for world roaming capability. The 9500 is made for GSM carriers.
