The Storm WOULD HAVE BEEN FOR ME if it didn't have such a crappy OS. I have a life outside of dealing with the deficiencies of the OS of the Storm OR ANY cell phone that came with such a half baked OS. I don't mind "getting technical" per se, but to have my wife and I equipped with reboot-happy cell phones is beyond our desires.
The notion of some of you on these boards is that somehow I'm not "technical" is simply geek snobbery. I've been involved in tech for decades. I've programmed, done computer repair for DEC, repairing laptops, desktops, and Minis, built TV's and other electronics, repaired all types of automotive electrical systems (owned/operated my own shop, after apprenticing in dealerships and independents), repaired all appliance category products, repaired consumer electronics, done tech support for hardware, software both proprietary and MS products, was Manager of Desktop Support for HP, Cupertino, and have built buildings w/o committing the details to paper. Oh, I forgot: I was a Windows, DOS, and Excel instructor...I could go on and on..and "yes" I have somewhat more than a HS education.
Sooooo, if you think I'm not "technical"...I can safely assume you are somewhat deficient at assessing other's capabilities. My suggestion to you: shut up with the condescending bullcrap and stick to the subject at hand which is the Storm and it's crappy OS.
