i have purchase this phone for 2 weeks now.. it seems to me a very classy elegant phone.. but yes i had encountered some software issues, when i try to play songs on it.. it said that there has some ""active media" that wouldn't play songs on my phone.. but i just had rebooted it and it was ok.. hopefully i would not exp. it anymore.. and battery drains quick about a day of moderate use.. but overall you'll just have 2 love this phone.. style,solid built,bbm, surepress which i found it very cool ^^, and of course the brand! i hate iPhone almost all of the people uses it :p
Love this phone...LOVE it.
Keypad is bit irretating with my big fingers, but one gets used to it
well i hav had this phone for a month.i have no hardware or software gliches like other.the OS is quite fast and easily usable i.e.as soon as u get used to the sure press technology,
Great screen resolution-(better than iphone), excellent sound,free usable apps out there,and i mean its blackberry, its design just makes a superior statement.
this smart phone is not for evry one, it takes a little while longer to get used to as compared to its competitors,but i think its class is not to be compared with iphone and android.
i own an iphone too, but i prefer the storm, coz it has a touch that not every touch screen has.
if u love BB and touch screen and a high class statement, this phone offers all that u need.
well i have it ...and yes it freezes wch phone dsnt....the soft ware is workable....black berry is blackberry.still a great phone
I'm using this phone to type this comment..i kinda like it..at first i gotta admit i hate clickable touchscreen..but u will get use it in weeks..my friends said it has the best screen on a blackberry (big and clear) when i take pic from its camera they praised the quality..its superb! Its UI is better than other boring blackberry UI because its touchscreen so its UI got redefined 8 out of 10 stars
I have two friends who have the blackberry storm2. We are all ready to throw it into the river. I'll be first because I live near the river.
It freezes in the middle of whatever you are doing, it doesn't recover very fast, rebooting forget it, and as someone else stated the battery does drain faster.
Lately, it has been turning itself on.
I am seriously thinking about cancelling my contract to get out of this phone. The service center stated to me, "You can buy another phone anytime." Why should I buy when you sold me the biggest waste of technology in the first place.
It takes about five months for it to desend into the I think I will freeze all the time mode.
So if you purchase this phone, you have my deepest heartfelt sympathy for wasting your money and time.
advice!!! do not buy this phone. too many software issues. even most network providers/ phone shops are not offering them anymore.
I ve alwas been after cellphones, i m a a gadget freak, n i ve several collections already ,
including the e90 nokia, e63 nokia, n97 nokia, motorola milstone, htc Desire, curve9300 and my recently added nokia c6 and storm2.
I feel the storm2 is perfect in its on way,
it demands a litl mor attention n getting used to no doubt, but over all its n amazin set. No problems so far, its friendly, ''its like understnd the dog and the dog understnds u'' ,I do not compare it wit any of my sets cause i fel they r all gud n out shine the other in their diffrnt personalities, or maybe comparin a bb wit another brand is jzt not fair.Driving along wit bb 4 da 1st tym ll drive u nuts lyk many commentD, but once 1 get to undrstnd wat the storm2's got, u get to see the beauty of bb. I ll say go for it. Neighbours r rather jealous.
Great screen resolution...
one of the best in smart phones..
Overall.....m enjoying using this....:):)
this phone is the best one, is the one i have been looking for, it is genuine
I've been using it for 5 months.No problems at all. The sound is great, I'm enjoying the music via headphones.The screen is also excellent, kinetic scrolling is present in all apps. No side bar though. Camera is average. Telephony and reception is reliable. I wish there were more free apps on web. Cheers!
cybertech, 14 Apr 2011brilliant phone. has all the nessesary features which are easy to use especially if you not of... morei too wanna buy this fone, i hav a bold 9700 but i want a press screen fone.. and s storm 2 is better dan d first one.. so can u use gtalk and msn messenger on it?? how is d experience
Wow, many complaints here. But dude, it's a hit screen. it's cool and maybe there won't be any hit screen device in future.
Ta$, 13 Apr 2011i'm really confused abt to buy this phone or not!users says this is a worse phone ever.whatevr... moreDude, looks apart: you need to be satisfied by its functions and speed even...
thats where this fails... lacks many of the important and basic features...when whole world is behind Voice chat and Video chats... you should hold back with text messages... I am using this phone unfortunately... better go for next models (not even Strom-3)
ALI DIWAN , 19 Apr 2011guyzzzz it iz such a good phone can i buy it rply fast I have been using this since 4 months, I would suggest not to buy this...
1. U don't have an option to upgrade u'r OS. Thus you get handicapped with the latest advancements.
2. Camera resolution is not great as its competitor. Video resolution is pathetic.
3. You can't install Skype or Google talk... so its of not any use if you wish to have voice chat on the phone.
4. Speed: Even this part is disappointing.... Hope you wait for few more months for Strom-3, or iPhone-5
