fantastic phone it has everything what a phone wants.good camrea ideo is epic and sound
its an okay phone i really dont care for it the only thing i find interesting about it is the screen how you have to push it like a button and the screen goes down giving you the feeling that youre pressing a button

the phone is cool....but can anyone please let me know how do i transfer contacts from my nokia e90 communicator to my blackberry storm??
Just got mine three days ago. The display is awesome, my other phone is a Nokia n95 8gb btw. I'm still testing the media capabilities. The music player is OK, image viewer is a bit slow for the processor this phone comes with, my n95 displays them faster with imageexpress. The email/messenging/social-network capabilities are great. The browser is quite limited after using the nokia oss. No flash support. Rendering is quite slower than the nokia on the browser. Audio quality of calls is good, loudspeaker is quite decent. The touchscreen keyboard is "OK" not really helpful but after getting used to it you'll do fine. Ratings Design:8 Interface 6 Performance 7
Ross, 15 Mar 2009I agree with your statement about the harshness of the review, after reading it, i thought "ha... moreI don't think you will be, but be prepared not to be able to do all that you would like quickly. The file structure is somewhat odd, as far as I can see, so placing data on the phone is a challenge. Some of the menus do look a bit antiquated. Hope you like it - put a post up on your impressions.

I am expecting to receive mine this coming week, I hope I'm not going to be disappointed.
I have had mine for 4 days and generally it is much improved on the earliest released versions.
I have residual build quality concerns due to the gap around the screen referred to.
The camera is also poor, just think of it as a snap and if you want better quality then get a stand alone camera. To pack too camera features onto a phone (again as per Omnia) means to get a decent result it takes too long to configure. So Storm may not have the best unit, but it will get the image.
This is a complicated devise for the new user.
The battery life is simply rubbish less than a day - so get a spare.
Vodafone invite you to use their Find & Go sat nav - seems pointless if BB Maps is there for free usage as F & G costs £5 per month.
Sound and screen are excellent - you need to see it to realise how good it is. It auto adjust to the ambient light ocnditions.
You can get office for BB's now, see BBmarketplace, which with no PDF viewer, which I hadn't realised, seems essential.
Email was as simple as type in your address and 20 minutes later it auto configured in up pops your first mail.
There seems to me to be too many message options on the handset. Size is not a problem and the width of the screen helps viewing and is much better than the long narrow variety as per Omnia et al. There is a MAJOR firmware update due by the end of the month, so any deficiencies may be sorted then.
The suretype thing takes a day or so to get used to, but learns as you use it and now is fine for me, better than a pinpoint stylus again as per Omnia.
I object to the leather pouch, there is no need whatsoever to used slaughtered animal when synthetic product would be better. Pouch is functional as it turns off the screen!
Standard ringtones, leave too much of a lag between rings, so you may need to download your preferred tone.
Call quality thus far is best I have had save Samsung D900, let's face it this is a key criteria, never mind if you can't blast the cosmos with some daft games for the intellectually wanting.
Menus I agree are drab, and perhaps the firmware will address this.You can change the size and fonts used which helps - but minimally.
The lack of wifi matters not ONLY if you have a dataplan, if not then it is surely something you would wish for.
Overall I am getting to like it, but the tepid review here is disappointing,and to this novice BB user it seems a bit harsh.
got the blackberry storm the other day and heres my review
texting is very easy on this phone even with my fat fingers very few mistakes are made
however it should have a seperate inbox/outbox instead on listing it all together
the loudspeaker is crap for voice calls so not good for driving however it is ok for music but not the best
the media player is very good
is can sync wiv itunes and the music player has the same layout as an ipod
music files are very well organised
the touchscreen is very good on this phone and menus are easy to navigate through
dont expect much from the camera it is slow and the quality is nothing special
overall a good 1st touch screen phone from blackberry
better for the business users rather thn for personal use
improvements should be made to the camera and the loudspeaker
Ravi Kumar, 14 Mar 2009still 65k colori own a nokia n95 8gb and a blackberry storm
