Default Storm 2 not for me, going back to my beloved Bold 9000

Please Login to Remove!

2 days with the Storm 2 and I had enough. The touch screen is terrible and I hate the feel of holding it. I don't know where the few grammes difference are but they feel like a brick. Plus when one picks it up, that floating screen feel is horrible. Typing is atrocious and one cannot do anything with just one hand. With the Bold I can type and speed dial when riding my horse!
Awful that Storm!

Are you typing faster with sure type or full keyboard? I'm struggling still with the Storm2.

It took me awhile but I finally got pretty good on the touchscreen keyboards. I prefer the full keyboard, as the suretype frustrated me until I figured out how it worked. Now I can do either seamlessly but I still prefer the full keyboard. I hate the word completion and have not found a way to turn it off. I know how to spell and what to put down. It irritates to have that window popping up all the time, getting in my way. It can be a little hard to hit the right key, as the key is hidden, but you can get a mirror image of it above your finger. I think the worst thing is the slowness of it. Apparently the touchscreen slows the thing down quite a lot. The device sometimes spends a second or two gathering up its jowels to make a move. Irritating in a world of speedy devices.

Reading the various posts, it looks like the 9700 is not as good as the 9000 for typing. I am going to buy a couple of new 9000 off eBay to make sure I can keep a good 9000 for ever.
