I know I could just go with a Tour, as that would be my fall back position.
Not sure if you already jumped but, FYI, I went from a Curve to a Storm 2 almost 2 weeks ago.
At first, I was seriously considering returning it. My main concern was the weight and size. It seemed so much heavier than the Curve (in fact, it is). I still think it's large/heavy but I'm starting to settle with it. It's something you will definitely notice coming from the Curve.
The second issue was going from a physical keyboard to a virtual one. It took some time but now I really like the Storm keyboard. You have to give it a chance.
The third issue was the click. Not the feeling, the sound. It is louder than the Curve. I still get a little concerned when I'm in a quiet space but...
The screen is magnificent. Major upgrade from the Curve. You will LOVE it after working on the Curve's smaller screen.
There are little issues with using a touch screen over the ball (sometimes I wish I had the ball) but I think it's all a matter of getting used to it.
WORST CASE - you get the Storm and after a week, you exchange it for the $35 fee. Just keep it in good shape.
My guess is you will appreciate the upgrade.
