I just created new users on any blackberry forms I could find! I needed to get my gospel to the masses.
The blackberry Storm (9530) is a glitch POS & was released far to early to be anything but a consumer gimmick. I switched from an Iphone 3g (jailbroken) to the Storm… I actually bought 4 of them w/ a Verizon plan… They where spouse to come with 8gm micro SD cards preinstalled; When Verizon sends me my phones none of them have the chips… I call Verizon, they tell me I have to send all 4 handsets back & it will be s 2 weeks turnaround (Expedited) before I even have a phone back. So I take the shot in the pants and keep going, next I find out Verizon lied about %100 Rev- A add www
prnewswire.com/cgi-bin/stories.pl?ACCT=109&STORY=/www/story/06-29-2007/0004618056&EDATE=Verizon Wireless: 100 Percent Of Wireless Broadband Network Now Enhanced With Faster Speeds
If the above press release from Verizon is correct; How come my UM-175(3g) modem connects National Access (Rev-0) almost half the time. If I force the modem HDR only in these Rev-A/ Rev-0 fridge zones I get no internet. Can someone tell me how come Verizon can release a PR
“Verizon Wireless announced today that all of its CDMA 1x Evolution-Data Optimized (EVDO) network nationwide has been enhanced to Revision (Rev.) A technology.”- But I’m still forced Rev-0????
So I call and write EVERYONE at Verizon looking for answers (from tech support to Ivan Seidenberg CEO). No one would answer me; so I wrote the Better Business Buru online a complaint. Verizon called me 15 days later to tell me that they would call me in another 15 days… Verizon seem to just be giving me the runaround rather then answer my questions.
So I made it my personal vendetta to scour the internet letting others know what a bad company Verizon is. Also how crappy the RIM Blackberry is; The handset is a true display in bad consumer testing. Across 4 Storms I find they all glitch in many, many different ways (From lagging & locking up to full soft resets) The iphone wasn’t perfect by any stretch but a million times better then any storm will every be. If just 1 person reads this post and buys a iphone instead of a blackberry; Then I feel better
P.S You whant to know what really grinds my gears… Blackberry Storm
