too bad that BB hasn't stepped up for Verizon. for business, there's no better communication device.

I have the Storm and the whole experience leaves a lot to be desired.

Ideal device is:

BlackBerry Bold form factor/keyboard, Storm Touch screen.

Out of curiosity, does the Pre fetch mail immediately like my BB, or would it be like my iPhone was, where it had to fetch mail every so often (although my iPhone never worked - I had to check mail manually every time)?

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.

Einstein laid it out Jacob, the faster you drive, the younger you get. Well, that's not exactly what he said, but it's apparently working for Rachel.

Have you upgraded to the .113 OS? It's a lot faster.

I upgraded my OS when it glitched and I had to wipe and reload my Storm. My only complaint is that my wallpaper shows up black, which I am sure will be fixed when Verizon officially releases it.

Bite me wussy... It's my body...



J/K Some people like ink, some don't... Doesn't really bother me either way, but I bet I can walk threw a crowded room easier than somebody with out ink..

I'm still pretty happy with my iPhone 3G by the way, just waiting for that next update...

Just a quick update, but I got the PRE and I must say that I am impressed. It's definitely different then my old moto q and so far it has me more then happy. I just don't have any major apps yet. It does make me hope for the new apps to come soon.
