I told him I liked the Storm 1 with the official 5.0 upgrade etc. and he said "just hold off until the end of November and I think you will be pleasantly suprised at Verizon's announcment for Storm 1 users". Who knows?
    What would happen to those that ended up getting the S2? This is depressing, for me, 'cause I just picked up the S2 about 2hrs ago.:aargh4::aargh4::aargh4::aargh4::17::17::17:


    So here's a q'stion anyone, I used an upgrade on another line to get the S2, can i return the S2 and have the upgrade still b available for later use?

    Yes, you can. As long as you do it within 30 days. Before I ordered the S2, I had purchased an HTC Imagio, turned out to be a giant turd imo, so I sent it back, waited a week, and purchased the S2 when it was released.

    Just got back from the Verizon store and I switched to the Storm2, from the AT&T Bold. I'm absolutely impressed on the data coverage!!!!

    It looks it will take me a bit to get use to the Storm2, but I'm excited!!!

    Q'stion about the LED light. I wanted to know if it's just my S2 of if this was done on purpose on all S2's. So the LED light is a big thing for me, I always have it on and that's basically my way of checking if I have any messages, sms, BBM, w/e it is, w/o having to turn on the phone. Now on the S1 the actual light seem to right where the opening is(the little space for the LED light) on the S2 it seems the light is actually to the left of the opening, seems to b done so the light isn't too bright? If i view the light from the right side of the phone (meaning I move the phone towards the left of me) I can see the light brighter, but looking at it or moving it to the right of me, makes it less bright.

    Anyone else storm 2 do the same? It's annoying 'cause when I'm driving, taking a quick glims at the phone doesn't help, cause I can't see if it's green or red that's flashing.

    BTW, is anyone having a hard time removing their SD card? I've tried for the last 5mins and it wont budge, its like stuck in their. Also (just curious) is anyone have Vodafone written under Verizon on their sim/global card.

    I just checked and you are right, if the phone is to the right of me, while I still can see the light it is much dimmer than if the light is to the left of me.

    I was able to remove my SD card without any issues.

    Are you referring to what is written on the SD card itself?

    I came from the Tour. Before that also on the AT&T network. Verizon's coverage is so much better and faster, at least in my area anyway.

    Yeah, give the keyboard a couple days to get used to. You won't believe how fast you can be with the two-letter per key keyboard. I highly recommend learning that one.
    I go great with Blackberries.

    The VAd feature is horrible w/9550. I tried to replaced the files w/the files from .328 but now when I click on the voice dial button, I get an error "Error starting ne_rim_vad:Symbol'VADNatives.getVADVersioninfo' not found"..I guess I will just have to add the ones that came w/.320 and deal w/the horrible options...Anyone else agree?

    I already believe how fast I'm typing and it's just been a day. I'm extremely impressed with this BB. I almost want to get another for work...
