Blackberry Storm reviews?

I need a new phone the BB Curve is an awesome phone I know that from working with them at work for 60 people.  I love the idea of the storm but it seems to have bad reviews online.  Does anyone have experience with it and if so what do you think?  I don't want to spend money on another phone thats going to be a POS but I'm a phone geek and love all the new ones! :)TIA!

    I have the storm. LOVED it at first but now it stinks. It lags.. very very slow compared to the other BB's. I hear the New Tour is pretty good. Have you looked into that?

    I can't say this from first hand experience, but a coworker has the storm and said pretty much the same thing. She loved it at first - but now it is very slow, and she has been having issues with the touchscreen. I have the curve, and love it! GL

    My FI had the storm for a very short period of time, because he hated it!  As pp said it would lag, it would take forever just to go from one screen to another. I would either stick with the curve or try out the new tour.  I have the curve and love it.

    Get the iPhone. Can't tell you how happy I am with it. Blackberry annoys me, to get 3G they make you get the most expensive one. The new curve is really nice but it doesn't have 3G which was a dealbreaker for me. Also, if you are using this mostly for work email, ask your IT dept if they use blackberry or Microsoft exchange servers. You may want to get a phone with Microsoft op system so it synchs perfect with work email. For net browsing , iPhone wins hands down.

    Eh, I don't know why ATT has such a bad rap....I've had it before it was ATT...cingular, and before that...cellular one....never had any issues, had great experiences upgrading phones, and the few times I have had billing issues, mostof the time they issue me a 20-50 dollar credit for the inconvinience.....so what bad experience did you have with ATT?

    My FI has the storm and I can't stand it...if you have nails, it's hard to type/text because the screen actually needs your fingertip to click on the buttons.  I find that I'm always hitting the wrong buttons.

    Michael and I are each getting a BB soon and I did tons of research -- between online and through talking to people I have determined that the curve is the only one worth considering...i just gotta talk him into the extra $30 per month/per phone thing

    i second skipping the BB and getting the iPhone. ATT has always been very accommodating when we've had issues. FI and I both upgraded in May and love the phones.

    until the iphone has real picture/video capabilities, i wouldn't pick it over a BB for email.  get a regular BB.  the curve is harder to type on and the storm will break in a month.

    I third going with the IPhone. I have had the Iphone for 2 years now and I love it still. I have never had a problem with service or AT&T even when it was cingular. Fiance had verizon and paid more for his phone until he came to At&t. We both got them at the same time and decided to do a family plan. We both pay less then before with more services. As for the picture imaging (it annoys me too) they are supposed to be coming out with the program this Fall. I think someone told me September and I can't wait.

    Yeah, iPhone has video now, an you can email it or post it directly to youtube....neat.  Picture messaging in the the works, but most of my friends have smart phone's so I just email, instead of texting anyway.If you go on the internet a lot, you may not be happy with EDGE......3G is faster, and the Curve isn't 3G.

    Thanks everyone (sorry read all from my POS phone but couldn't post) I think I am going to go with the Curve, I am glad I asked about the storm though I feel so much better. As for the Iphone, I am not on AT&T (Storm is only avail right now through Verizon) my contract is not up for quite sometime, and honestly, I deal with AT&T at work, I chose it for the company for BB service for all our reps and execs, the ONLY reason I chose it was because all their phones are int'l capable and you don't need to get a "different type" if you are traveling outside of the country (a lot of people do that sometimes)...for service, I personaly do not like it, I find I have WAY more complaints from my reps since we've switched to AT&T, in 3 years on Verizon, I've dropped maybe 3 calls. Design-I looked into the tour after you post and I do like it but its a little high still in price (200 bucks) and I'm cheap! :) Thanks again everyone!
