Default Storm or Tour?

Please Login to Remove!

OK, I have ATT but data is slow and when 3G finally gets here in August, it will be only 60% coverage in my area......Should I go with Storm after OS Upgrade, and how is it compared w/ current OS? Or wait for the Tour 9630? Afterall, Verizon is 3G here already and is Smokin' fast......

I think you should wait for a better OS for the Storm. It's a good phone, but it has many glitches. You should wait and see how is the Tour, maybe it will be great. Did I say that the Storm has many, many bugs?
Also it depends if you want a cellphone with a big screen, and if you like SurePress if you know what's that. There are many who are very satisfied with the Storm. I'm not that satisfied, and I wouldn't buy it again. It's true that installing a new OS on the Storm makes it feel like another phone, a better one.
BTW Storm 2 is coming soon, and you might wanna wait for that.

if you wan wait till they announce the release date, you can get the storm within 2 weeks of the tour launch. then you have 30 days to switch if you dont like the storm.
