I am using this device (BB Storm 9500) for the last one month. I am very much pleased with the performance of Internet Browser. I am also impressed with the performance of email and chatting functionalities and stay online without any difficulties (ISP – Etisalat in UAE). Mobile Internet was my primary requirement though. And combined with Document editor, it perfectly meets my requisites. Playing video files are of amazing quality. I have not faced any difficulties in call facilities as of now. Rest of the functions I have not tested yet. Initially typing was bit cumbersome but now I got used to. And its solid masculine look (much better than iPhone and Nokia N97) impresses everyone around me.
does someone knows if the bb storm.. have wifi..? and if it okey for 500$?
ive got one of these phones and i dumped my wife because she bad mouthed it, if it were a woman, id marry it.
Don't use stormunlocker.com for unlocked your blackbery storm. They send me 2 code one for phone and one for data but none of them work and after than they never answer my e-mails. Their web site writen %100 money back but all lies. They are thief.
no no no. do not buy!!!! my friend has one of these and its very hard to write text mess. battery is very bad and some other problems.
Very bad performance. When you turn on blackberry takes 5 minutes until you receive the signal and be able to make a call. When the battery is low, you will lose signal, it will say "OFF" in the place where the bars are the phone is still on but I could not make a call. Very very disappointing. WORST of the WORST phones on the market. NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL. Don't buy any Blackberry phones if you don't want any problems.

No wonder you can't get reception, the metal tracks are everywhere. Go to the north of the city at the beach try there, up by the university area.
terrible device. I have been using a BB device almost for 3 yrs. Have tried - 8700, 8310 curve, Bold... pretty good devices - especialy the BOLD one. I am planning to return to it as the STORM is nothing but disapointment. Slow reactons, hard to type virtual QWERTY keyboard, needs restarting at least 2 times a day...atc. As a BB fan I hope RIM will take the feedback form the users into acconut.
kumar, 29 Jun 2009hi guys, i'm looking for a bb. Could you pls, help me compare storm vs curve & iphone. How ... moreHi i work for vodafone and the touchscreen on the storm is far better than the Iphone but that's it !! The Iphone apps and the fact that you don't have to send it back every couple months because somethings gone wrong fully out way the touchsrceen !! also go to a vodafone and an O2 store and they will let you have and play with the real handset.
this phone is terrible, one of the most amazing phones in the world, i love it because its so terrible.
Piece of crap. Worse than I expected. Signal reception is very poor everywhere, I live in Chicago in the city and I get only 2 bars. Photos take forever to load and it's very hard to flip, takes time and patience. It freezes constantly. Can not compare to iPhone at all, not even close to it. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. You will regret it.
Lee, 29 Jun 2009Why does everyone complain about battery life on smartphones??
No doubt the complainers are c... moreHi Lee,
Thanks on the feedback for Storm. Could you please elaborate what are the 'many' things one can do with the Storm which is impossible with the iphone? Other advantages that you can list out? I need to take a decision between the iphone 3gS and the Storm today!.Thanks once again.
No sign of the BB tour on this site. Phone announced and available. I really do not understand
Without doubt it is a deeply flawed and very disappointing product. Everyday almost something else fails to work as it should. I am due for an ungrade and have no confidence at all in Storm 2 but don't need the Swiss army knife of some other phones. Unsure what to get at this time. Storm has certainly been a major let down. I cannot help but noticing the voting on this product on this site which suggests my views are not the minority, many don't like it, it would seem.
I got a BB 9500 Storm from Malta.
Super user unfriendly touchscreen keyboard
No instructions to turn off the key stroke 'suggestions'
No stylus available.
Web site manual is not much help either.
Can't wait to get rid of it.
