Flasher, 22 Oct 2008Damn... why RIM didn't put Wi-Fi on this phone....
=(wifi on my n82 drains battery fast which is really cool going round with flat battery and it regularly dis-connects i dont like it...Between 3g and gprs i cope and gprs with images dis-abled is faster at down loading were i am cause of the way hsdpa acts in connecting to signal.
Any way my question does it have eqaliser in mp3s?
yes the storm will only be comming to vodafone. i work there so iv seen quite a bit about it. it looks very good.
The Storm is and will only be available on Vodafone throughout Europe, Asia, Australasia and Africa. Verizon has it in the US and I believe Bell has a short licence in Canada.

Lack of Business performance?!?! Good statement mate, its a bit like saying that the Bugatti Veyron has very little acceleration. The Blackberry Storm, excluding Wi-Fi, has everything the business user would ever need from a BLACKBERRY! FACT

You'd have to check with your local phone companies.
Blackberry Enterprise is more for larger businesses, again you'd have to check with local phone companies.
dont think it will compare with the iphone 3g but will definitley be a great blackberry for people that need to use a blackberry

So a blackberry user would have to pay for this blackberry service monthly?
Why no WIFI/WAN? The phone companies will not benifit. If there is WIFI you will not use the Voda Phone connection and they will lose money. How could they forget? It purley politics. In this time of technology no WIFI? They are forcing us to use the networks for Internet connection.

I think though that the keyboard will be pretty easy for most people but it will just take some getting used to. My thumbs are pretty big, and I didn't do too bad. I expect I'd have no problems with some practice!

but does it need like a constant 3g or wifi connection for emails to reach your phones?
"Push Mail sue alot of Battery. My Battery on IPHONE and E66 will go down so fast if leave the push mail open."
The MAJOR difference between Blackberry Push and others (iPhone, Symbian and Windows Mobile) is that the Blackberry BIS (Blackberry Internet Solution) or BES (Blackberry Enterprise Solution) push the emails to the phone without the device having to connect all the time to check for new emails.
All the other phones have to stay connected or constantly keep connecting to check at different intervals, the Blackberry's don't.
Regarding Internet use all traffic to the device runs through the Blackberry servers where it is compressed, it will even only download enough data to fill the screen as you need it.
This cuts down the amount of data used which means that wireless isn't needed so much and why the older Blackberry's worked so well using only GPRS.
