I think there is BIG PROBLEM WITH STORM
My friend purchased BlackBerry Storms. Initially, we both loved them, but then we noticed that calls were being dropped. Then we noticed that the cell signal on both of our phones was constantly fluctuating. Within a 10 second period we can see the signal jump from five bars, to three bars, to no bars, and then back to five bars. We spoke with local shop about this issue, but they really could not help us resolve the problem. We live in a city, so cell reception is excellent.Has anybody else experienced this issue with the Storm? I would really like to correct this issue so that I don't have to get rid of my phone. I really like it other than the whole signal thing. Thanks
Fra, 24 Feb 2009Slow to re-act to touch, less than 8 hrs battery life, clumsy menu and sub menus, orientation ... moreIf you dont clear your history and cache and occasionally take the sim and battery out and do a reset what do you expect?
apps games and other software are available at this online blackberry store and theres lots to chose from
the storm has no wifi but vodafone give you unlimited email and internet free which is better because yon may not be in a wifi area
i just bought storm and i have a problem . at the menu i go options i select applications list and shows me the blackberry maps version 4.7 but when i go to the applications cant see them.i must download them from the net or there is a way to activate them?is there other programs for storm so i can use the GPS or just blackberry maps ?

There are very few of the "mainstream" branded phones that have achieved such an average vote as appears on this site. Potential customers and RIM should take note, as this is the result of a wide spectrum of opinion.
I am using a sony ericson and was able to send one text message to 19 people in one send, I also have a samsung but it can only send up to 10 texts at a time. I would like to know how many texts can be sent in one go on the curve? please answer any BB owners. thanx
I got the mobile from the site below:
It is Good..Dont expect too many features...But a Good One
Fra, 24 Feb 2009Slow to re-act to touch, less than 8 hrs battery life, clumsy menu and sub menus, orientation ... moreWhy has GSMArena STILL not done a review on the Blackberry Storm? It has been out since last November, surely enough time to give it a good going over!
Slow to re-act to touch, less than 8 hrs battery life, clumsy menu and sub menus, orientation slow to re-act. All in all a bad Blackberry experience. Back to Nokia. Vodafone are foolish to keep pushing this phone.
I work at Rogers and I have tried both the Iphone and the Storm...Iphone is a totally superior MEDIA device over any blackberry, but is only a GOOD phone definitely not a great one. Blackberrys are better phones but they are definitely not the best media devices around and do not contain as much applications.
If you are a Business person i strongly suggest a Blackberry. Best E-Mail support and full qwerty keyboard is awesome for mails and text messages
If you are young and tech-savvy and like to always have your music on the go, watch videos and do a lot of browsing but you are not part of the business world...go for the Iphone
Anonymous, 24 Feb 2009Amazing Phone! I am running Blackberry OS v18.104.22.168, which is quite an improvement over early... moreDo you not think that your stated job prejudices your view, given the Vodafone and RIM link -up, you were hardly going to suggest the iPhone now were you? Bit silly if you didn't think this would get spotted.
tanzir, 23 Feb 2009which one is better? storm or iphone.....????For sure Iphone. Iphone has the most best touch screen than anyphone in market, It is supported with over 15,000 Applicaiton, Music/Video/Podcast Access that no other Brand can offer and wished they had. Best phone for checking e-mails.
Some readers name Samsung F480. F480 is a basic touch screen phone with no support. It is a basic phone. Blackburry does not even support Wi-Fi.
That si why every brand tryign to copy Iphone and no success.
xXDA RIDDLERXx, 24 Feb 2009I agree i also work at vodafone and also feel the same.The i-PHONE IS WELL OVERRATED. Storm/c9... moreYou out of your mind. IPHONE over rated? Storm with no Wi-Fi and No application Support. You call it a phone. If you think Iphone over rated then you no nothing about Iphone. Iphone is not only phone.
