Hands-On: BlackBerry Storm
Problems in the future?
I HAVE TO GET MY HANDS ON THIS!
I cannot wait for this phone to be released! My birthday is Nov. 8--I can't think of a better bday present!
COME ON VERIZON & RIM... LET US HAVE IT ALREADY!!
AD discussions continues below...
why does it show a sim card slot?
With this you can use it for GSM GPRS EDGE UMTS & HSDPA internet speeds while traveling.
"It's when going abroad that the Storm breaks new ground, though. The Storm supports all major overseas GSM and 3G networks. It's quad-band GSM, which gives you full GSM roaming even in Latin America. It also has HSDPA 2100, ...
The 9530 Storm comes with a standard 8mb card and common sense says the price would be competitive with iphones. Maybe a littl...
Storm - Very heavy in weight
A 5.5 oz phone is almost as heavy as the HTC6800 5.8oz.
I personally think the HTC Diamond Touch at 4.1 oz is where the new RIM should be at. At least the Storm should be no heavier than 4.6 oz 8830.
Will Verizon cripple the GPS on this phone too?
WiFi vs 3G -- am I missing something?
The only thing missing is WiFi, but with so much 3G love, this is one of the few times we almost buy Verizon's argument that WiFi would be redundant.
I realize that 3G provides excellent coverage and speed, but I do not understand why people (besides Verizon) believe having WiFi would be redundant. If I'm sitting at home or in a local cafe that has WiFi, why would I want to use 3G and have to pay for the amount I download rather than take advantage of the free WiFi. Like I said, I totally understand Verizon wanting you to use 3G instead so they make money, but how can an outsider say its just as good to use 3G.
Maybe I'm missing something w...
- I said "almost".
- Most people do use the $20-30 unlimited data plans.
Wifi = We're's the nearest coffe shop so i can use this expensive device to see if that cute guy messaged me on myspace?
iPhone 3G works it's 3G magic in about 40% of the US Population and you still have to pay the $30 3G data plan not matter how you connect or where you are located....
Verizon has US exclusivity on the Storm
The only phones that are not exclusive beyond a 3-6 month time frame is the New Pearl (Codename Kickstart for GSM and Apex for CDMA) and the...
It works with Blackberry Enterprise Servers, Outlook OWA, POP3, IMAP, or an Outlook Redirector program can be installed on your computer. The OWA, POP3 and IMAP j...
Just get a browser to work!!!!
P.S. Amazing review as always guys!
Switching from iPhone to this device and Verizon
awesome goodness ..
Gonna need a new phone soon, advice please....
The thing is I am in professional school and will be scheduling patients, making appointments, and needing to access my email on my phone
Bottom line I guess I need a more "grown up" phone than my current enV #1, which was an awesome phone.
Just looking for some advice on the Storm vs Dare vs waiting for a better phone to come out, if there is one on the horizon ( I am probably like most on this board wanting/looking for the next best thing )
To be more specific, it combines the user-friendliness of an iPhone with the functionality of both a tradition...
Does any one else see the ROGERS MALL on the first picture !!!

A full GSM edition to come?
I check a couple other pic's of the phone that were posted. Its is really on the unit shown at three angles.
For a little background knowledge:
Rogers is a Full GSM company in Canada, much like AT&T for y...
Like the iPhone, the Storm lets you re-arrange the touch buttons on th...
YOU CAN CHANGE THE NAME ON FOLDERS AND APPS!
It could be a Fav. saved for a Web Site, or anything!
IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ROGERS!
