I don't care what anybody says but a Blackberry will never work as smooth and as fast as an Android phone. Even a Blackberry running a hybrid OS will not run as good as an Android phone. I would know because loading Hybrids is all I did with my Storm 2 and my HTC Incredible puts my Storm to shame.

    If your such an Android lover now, why are you still hanging around a Blackberry website then? People crack me up. Spend alot of time crying about what Blackberry doesnt do. Then why did you buy one in the first place? Blackberry is what it is, some like it, some dont. But dont hang around waiting for RIM to magically turn into every mans phone, because it isnt going to happen. Im not knocking Android or Apple, but there is nothing wrong with Blackberry either. Its funny to watch all the posts when a new BB is close to being released. Everybody saying hope it's this and hope it's that. Then come to find out, its still a BB through and through. It's not going to change anytime soon. OS 6, will be a polished looking 5.0, and I'm not expecting it to change the BB experience that much. But still people will load it thinking its something entirely new and be disappointed. Im not flaming on anybody here, its just that the argument is getting really old and the dead horse needs to stop being beaten. I happen to be very happy with my Storm 2, as a matter of fact, the only phone that I thought was really not up to par was the 9630.

    Very well put. I agree with you completely.
    I love my S2. I've been a Blackberry fan ever since I pick one up. I wanted a touch screen phone. I never liked the iphone screen. or any touch screen until i met the Sure Press on the Storm. now I wouldnt have anything but. lol. Storm 2 is great but as dbone said earlier storm 2 is getting a little dated. I'm happy with mine. I have an upgrade but I think I'm going to save it for the S3....... hopefully it is in the works. I want rumors.:laugh2:
    Hope you find your answer.

    The reason I still hang out on this forum is because my sister still has a Storm 2, so I still try to keep her phone up to date with whatever is new. I think its so funny how there are some die hard Blackberry users out there that refuse to acknowledge that there just might be a better phone out there then a Blackberry. I think it's funny because I was one of those people. Things have changed for me but that doesn't mean it's changed for everyone. The OP asked why he should get a Storm 2, which means that he's not sure if the phone is going to be right for him. All, I'm doing is letting him know that there are other phones out there that are newer and better phones out there then the Storm 2. It's already been mentioned that the Storm2 is already outdated so why waste your money on it. Get a new phone with more enhancements, better speed, newer OS, more memory and a much faster browser. You may enjoy waiting for leaks to drop or pulling batteries to get the phone to work and then having to wait 5 minuts for the phone to reboot. You might also enjoy the lame apps that Blackberry says are good and loading different hybrids everyday jjst to get your phone to function the way it should have when first released. I sure don't miss that, but to each there own I guess. If the OP wants to get a Storm 2, good for him but I thinks it's only fair to let him know that there are other phones out there besides Blackberry. That is all I meant to say with my post. If it was taken the wrong way, oh well, that's not now how I meant it. Just think about this, a lot of the original Blackberry gurus (BBCrackman, Olta, RandyRKelly, P3Droid, etc) have moved on to different phones. They must have seen something that made them think the change had more to offer. OP, get what ever phone you want and feel comfortable with. Only you can decide what is right for you.

    I got caught up in the leaaks game too, but quuickly realized that it was the bugs in the leaks that caused most if not all the issues. Im not denying that there are phones out there that do certain things better than BB, just saying that if you felt the phone didnt act the way it should have new, then you shouldnt have bought it in the first place. Again proves my point that chasing a mythical golden bullet to get it to do something it couldnt, with leaks and hybrids got people nowhere.

    LOL.. I'd like a chance to see how the new OS6 is suppose to run. I believe the Storm 1 still might get the OS6 update.
    Mule0331, no worries about this being taken in the wrong way. I've always liked this website. This is still my favorate BB website due to the great staff and community. It's great that we have such a great variety in opinions. It always makes for great conversations. This post is still for the OP and I hoped that he is now able to make a desision on whether the Storm 2 is the right phone for him. If he decides that it is he will always have a great staff here at BBOS to help with any issues or concerns that may come up. I know I always turned to BBOS for any of my problems and was always helped. If he decides that he would like to try a different phone, there are other greats sites dedicated to those phones. Either way, when he finds what he's looking for, he will be happy. If the phone isn't what you would have liked, he could always return it within 3 days and get something different.

    the storm 1 isn't even getting 5.0 updates anymore! i know because it's still my primary device. i'm probably going to jump ship to the incredible, but i genuinely hope that rim lures me back with the storm 3. i simply can't wait that long to get a new phone.

    i love blackberries and i love this site. but if rim can't make a device that functions properly, they're not going to keep customers very well (despite their record so far) with the advent of android and the quick steps in android development. they will lose market share and must do something to convince people there's more to blackberry than bbm. they must show that they have above average devices.

    just my two cents.

    to stay on topic, i don't know much about the n97 but i would skip the storm 2. something better will come along and you'll be kicking yourself for signing that contract. of course your options for contracts might be better than verizon, as i'm not familiar with australian carriers.
