These blackberries do nothing great at once, one of my biggest ongoing problems with blackberry is they truncate my emails randomly way too soon than what is allowed (I spent 2 months with BB tech support on this), and their signal strength (at least the storm) is second to the bottom (sucks).
There is always something in the beta OS's that you will find that does not work/works poorly, recently my storm with v8.5 and tried V8 would not transfer my contacts to my new 2010 Prius but the official v148 works, and on my Storm, seems to work just as good as v8 or v8.5 (this has been the kicker for me).
Now people will say no 2 storms are alike (very true) so that brings up the best question ever!!
If no 2 storms are alike then why is blackberry using questionable components or even better is how come their quality control sucks!!
With the iPhone and others coming out blackberry should just go out of business, they were great 2+ years ago but today they are just riding off their name (just a matter of time everyone else realizes this also) (Proof of this is my truncated emails and the no 2 storms are alike)!
Sorry if anyone thinks the storm or blackberries are great, but use a iPhone or iTouch, I can not see properly or even get to some web sites that I can on my iTouch, which is sad cause the iTouch was out longer than the storm and the storm can not do this to this day (or I personally think any day) come close.
But a huge thanks goes out to everyone on this site :You_Rock_Emoticon:for helping others and for the beta making people in at least trying to get this phone to be the best data phone it can possibly be!!!!:fing02:
Thanks and good luck!
i love my storm

If the iPhone works better for you and has all the features that you need/expect out of a phone, that's wonderful. I wouldn't say blackberrys are that horrible, as I have had positive experience with my storm and really anticipating storm 2 launch. I have learned that nothing in life is perfect, not to expect too much out of things, and that way I don't get disappointed as bad. I will agree that storm launch was really rough and buggy. It has made a lot of progress and I have been more and more pleased. If there is anything we can help you with or answer any questions you may have, please let us know. Also, welcome to BlackberryOS!!!
You may here mixed reviews about the storm, as with any other phone. I love my storm. I ahve had blackberries before and have been rockin the storm for 5 months. Thanks to people on this site, I have learned to do so much with my storm. Just play with it as muchas possible and I am sure you will begin to love it as well.
Wow. I couldn't disagree more. I would say the return/replacement rate on the Omnia is at least twice that of the storm, and I don't expect anything different from the replacment. I wouldnt touch an omnia with your ten foot pole, if you get my drift.

I am thinking about purchasing an iPhone, and promptly returning it in 30 days, so that I can get an idea of how it functions in comparison, but then what I consider an important function/feature would be differnt from the next guy.
But as far as the storm is concerned: Perfect - No. MMS when it launched - Yes.
Not that I'm trying to be offensive or negative to your opinion, I am just stating mine. But at the same time, I dont think I would tell an iPhone user to return their phone because I had a singularly less than optimum experience with the product. A little harsh, but your honesty in your post is refreshing. I do disagree, but i think you expected that of a few of us
david 5452, I would suggest using your 30 Day WFG to its fullest, and if the touch screen isn't what you like, the Tour will be around long enough that hybrids will be plentiful, fixes will always come, and your calls will most certainly always go through.
let's stay on topic here...the OP wanted to know how to make his storm "run the best". this is not an iphone vs. storm thread.
