Had the iphone (without update 2.2). Switched because I wanted better service quality, MMS, Video etc etc. I am ready to bring this back today! Man, after the iphone there is no phone. I would rather have a Dare. I want Verizon, especially with my 21% discount for AAA, but I can't take it. The one button click is annoying. More annoying is their auto correct spelling that is hard to work around unlike Apples. Also, the smart type? What is smart about it? I can't stand the multiple clicks to get to the letter I want unless it is in landscape mode. Am I missing something? I love the camera and flash. At least I tried... PS - I am a quick learner too.

You're not alone. The one button click thing makes it near impossible to type- and I picked up the iPhone's keyboard pretty fast.

Moreso, it feels like a Blackberry "trying to be an iPhone" , which really gets on my nerves. I just really really miss the trackball, as the UI doesn't have any workarounds for my fat singers.

I agree. It is a Blackberry trying to be an iPhone when it should have just been a Blackberry with a touchscreen. I hope they try again.

I am returning mine tomorrow as well. That is if I do not hurl this thing through a wall. The lags and bugs are driving me nuts. Smile

the Verizon Storm was set to launch with an OS higher than 4.7.0.65. The boxes handed out at the Verizon media event on Tuesday in NYC (where all those reviewers picked theirs up) actually have stickers on them that show 4.7.0.82. Yet the devices were actually loaded with the .65 OS. Did you purchase a Storm today? Take a look at the sticker on your box. If you peel it off, you'll see one beneath for 4.7.0.82. Right before the Storm was set to ship en mass, a security glitch was caught in the OS that prompted a hault of shipment. With no time to release a newer, updated OS, the Storm's that made the stores for today's launch were simply a limited number of units that were reprovisioned with an older OS, version 4.7.0.65. Yada, yada, yada.. t...

No, it was simply a mis-print on the box.
