Does the Storm 2 have UMA enabled?

I currently use the BB 8900 on TMobile and a normal Verizon Motorola phone. With BB on TMobile I use UMA for WIFI calling, and I find it is essential for me when I travel outside the USA because those calls just count as minutes.

Is Storm 2 thinner/slimmer than Storm 1?

On Phone Scoop is says that they are identical in dimensions (14mm thin), but at the store the storm 2 felt thinner. Maybe it was just me.

Icons on main screen

On the storm 2's that i have seen in the stores, there are 6 icons on the bottom. Is there a way to get rid of all or some of them so that the only thing showing on the main screen is the picture?

Want the storm but worried about the touch screen for...

....texting and e-mail. How long did it take you to get used to it? I tried it in the store and it was difficult. I really want the STORM 2 though. Maybe it's just a learning curve for the touch screen???

Updated Storm 1 OS vs Preloaded Storm 2 OS

I recently updated my Storm 1 OS to the which had 1 HUGELY AWESOME feature. It gave you the ablity to control what emails that come to your phone go in the main message window and which do not.

I then turned around and bought the Storm 2 and gave my Storm 1 to an employee. The Storm 2 out of the box comes with OS vs

Guess what is missing????? That 1 feature.

Any suggestions? Verizon said I could kill my phone if I try putting Storm 1 OS on my Storm 2. I really want that feature. I have 3 email accounts coming to the Storm.

Transfering numbers/Contacts

I thought I had seen this posted, but could not find it. How do you, or are you able to transfer your contacts via back up assistance, or through the store via cable? Going from EnV Touch to Storm 2.
Thank you,

BB App world

Anybody run into any problems with BB App World? I'm trying to download and run the apps that I had loaded on S1, but keep getting error messages saying that the apps won't run on the S2.

Which of course is odd since I'm running OS on my S1, so the apps should work on the S2 as well.

Any suggestions?

Love it!

Very Happy Very Happy

Just great so far. Love the new feel of the touch screen. Wifi too. Just the best so far!
