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 It's already been mentioned that the Storm2 is already outdated so why waste your money on it.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'm a diehard bb user, and will remain so. But that said, I have used other phones out there either through work or family members. Work has involved motorolas, nokia,s and samsungs. The jack was fun to use I must admit. My son had an :AR15firing:iphone until it bit the dust, and he now uses a curve. I didn't really like the :AR15firing:iphone or the screen, at best, in my opinion, its a nice toy to play with. Now, after using the curve for a couple of months, my son was left asking himself why he wasted his time with the :AR15firing:iphone. It all comes down to personal preferences and needs.

    One last thought, you had mentioned a 5 minute boot time. With Lyricidal's .705, I have a boot time of a minute and a half now.

    Ah how I will miss this site when I jump ship to Droid as soon as I can I think as everyone said is that get whats right for you. I do agree that BB6 will likely be a polished 5.0. It will be fancier and an upgrade but I doubt it will close the gap between the BB OS and the Droid OS...its just to much ground to pick up. On top of that with so many people going droid the app development is insane. Way more people are working on apps for droid than are working on apps for BB.

    Last year I would have punched myself in the face for even thinking of going away from BB. But now I know the better phone is a droid, I wish it wasn't so, but it is...plain and simple.

    That's all I was trying to say in my post. Last year, I talked up the Blackberry OS to people who had other phones and was always telling them how great BB was compared to their other phones. I to discovered the Droid to be a mucher better phone then the blackberry (for me). The apps are better and the selection and amounts of apps available are a lot more then those for the BB. Glad that someone was able to understand what I was trying to say.

    Awww man! I wasnt in there! :lmao: :lmao: To each there own, if I had a chance to go back to BlackBerry, I would, but only with the 9650 (if it fits what I want), BUT I am struck by the new Moto Droids coming out so I am gonna weigh my options. I will always use a phone that fits what my lifestlye, needs, and just fun for me. Rather it be a iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows (7 looks very promising ATM), Android, WebOS, and Symbian (if i ever get onenLOL). I'm not picky I just get whats best for me. This is what I suggest to the OP, if the phone fits and works for you, thats all you need.
