gr8 phone,i used it 4 8 months ,the sure press touch screen is awesome firsts of its kind, but the screen censer does not respond to your finger tip, when pressing the middle screen, it highlights the bottom icons.battery life is ok, charging every 5 days
overall awesome some, only censor is the problem
dear sir i am by blackberry mobail model no 9530 how u conn for internet connisanthars no w.lan plz help mee tks sir
im using storm for 8 months, the only issue for me is the battery life, so i find a way to decrease energy consumption, i always use 2g when im not using the internet then my battery last for almost 3 days, i downloaded bolt for my browser and its really gud, where you dont need to use surepress,. i thought before its surepress is a disadvantage but i was wrong, i tried motorola and as early as 2 months, its touch screen problem exist, touchscreen did not response at all, i tried LG and as short as several days, its system went down and need to reprogram it or otherwise replace it,. i really admired blackberry storm.
Awais, 22 Jun 2010This phone looks good, has everything but wlan. This is making a lot of people to overlook th... moreI thought it was gr8, but it pisses me off cuz i have probs downloading apps, it has no wifi, no photo/video editor software. Just too casual for a smart phone. So many challenges with other companies and blackberry still can't get their acts together. Ppl need fancy stuff on their phones, i like it whe my phone can do extra-ordinary stuff, like the s-e xperia x10 for example, but i won't buy it cuz i like the name blackberry and waiting for them to improve, might not be able to wait much longer.
Does anyone know of any photo editor app that i can download on the bb storm 9530
Have been using this phone for 7 months and I feel old. The touch screen is not good. Typing is extra terrestrial. Battery life very bad. (Nobody has commented on that). I get mad, most of the times. Its very slow, both for the calls and use of the applications.
when there is a direction change, the whole screen goes crazy(sometimes) like a virus affected application.
The camera shutter speed is lousy. U have to hold it for eternity to get the picture without blurring.
Apart from the name BLACK BERRY and being a status symbol,
I will gladly exchange this phone for a basic phone, which I can rely on for battery backup and consistency.
tes vwey moody.most times can be frustrating.thou it gives a feeling of class influence and power
It is a very moody phone. When it works, it works well. The Internet browsing works very well on my network, the call quality is nothing to shout about, but better than alot of other phones and the right apps, make the phone fun. HOWEVER, when it DOESN'T work, wwwhhhooooaaaaaa nelly, this phone would make you seethe a ball of hate and malice and everything bad. The touch screen is NOT responsive, well it responds, just not where you touch it. you touch the bottom, the top lights up. If it is just a message or an email that you are sending, and you turn it on a side, when you touch Q, P lights up, turn it upright, touch anywhere and the top is highlighed. Can usually be remedied by changing phone directions quickly in messages. But when you neeeed to make a call, and it is in this non responsive state, the only thing that will remedy it is a battery pull, and that is VERY annoying, considering that BBs looonngg start up time. So like i said, when it works...it works well. when it doesnt...it will make you want to eat your arm. Buy at your own risk.

Anonymous, 14 Jun 2010Do we have PDF document reader in BB storm?nooops...lovely isn't it, no PDF reader on a so called smartfone...
a very good looking crap this is, signals are not steady, sure press is a pain, GPS support not in my country as yet, no WI-FI so no browser support other than BB...a total waste of money...
really wish I had not bought this phone. There are no good apps, the Internet is very so and pocket calls occure all the time. Another thing that is bad about this phone is the fact that the touch screen freezes all the time requiring you to have to pull out the battery to reset it. All in all this is a terible phone
i just got a bb storm ,touch screen but the network seems to have problem of steadyness. how do i configure the network and make steady. I need to know
jim, 26 Jun 2010the worst phone ever, total POS !!!! I don't know how many times I've been wanted to smash it ... moreoh yeah two other things. don't even bother trying to use the internet on this phone. Terribly slow, god awful slow. Literally takes approx 45 seconds to 1 minute for one web page to display. And pocket dialing... happens all the time. The lock button to lock the push screen is located on the upper corner of the unit. Put it in your pocket and by just sitting it unlocks the screen, dials phone numbers, turns the camera on.. al sorts of crazy stuff. And updates... I just updated my phone that I already hate today in hopes of making it better. Installed all the most recent software for it including the new nagigator software. I tried to use it and when you type in an address to navigate to you can't even save it to your favorites. Also when you update the new software and install the new navigation software every previous address in your favorite places is lost, doesn't save any of that during the upgrade. Do I sound a little irritated? I really am!! I hatd this phone before this morning when I updated the software, now I HATE IT EVEN MORE, if that's possibele. And once you update the new software if you try to restore your prvious version you can't do that either. DON"T BUY THIS PHONE
the worst phone ever, total POS !!!! I don't know how many times I've been wanted to smash it with a hammer, on occasion it irrites me so much i throw it on the ground. Why...
Not a smart phone. Not intuitive at all. Dificult to use. I've had it 1.5 years and i still can't adjust the volume on the headset. If you go out of your time zone phone doesn't update to local time. when phone rings sometimes when you press answer button on screen doesn't answer. I've missed so many calls that way. navigation system through verizon sucks, constantly routes me through traffic delays even though i have it set up to avoid them. navigtion can;t figure out how to avoid certain highways if if you're lucky enough to set the system to avoid them. push screen typing slow, doesn't register the key you've punched sometimes. the list goes on and on... It does have a great pic camera though, thats the only good thing about it. girl friend has the apple 3G phone, totally blows this crappy phone away!!!
