Is the Thrill Gone? All Storms are complete.
With the release of VZW's 22.214.171.1248 for the Storm 1 and the arrival of the new Storm 2, do storm owners not have any good upgrades, leaks or hybrids to look forward to anymore? I am not one of the fortunate people that have upgraded to the Storm 2, but my Storm 1 is running like champ. I was bored last night so I downgraded to .323 and ran Lyric's hybrid just to see if I missed operable themes and ghost keys. This morning I went back to running.328. I do not know if I should be happy that my phone is running great. Will I get some excitment if I upgrade to the Storm 2 or will my withdrawl continue for the next few months.
I have even been looking at the new Motorola Droid. It looks amazing, but I am sure that it may not be as user friendly as the Storms. Are any other Storm 1 owners feeling the same way?
Human Nature Stikes Again
It is so funny to see all of you lamenting over having a good working phone and no upgrade needed or if you do upgrade, will I be impressed with the changes.
That is so "Human Nature" that it's almost not funny. We have longed for a Storm that would work with the OS and give us a stable phone and now that we have that times two (S1 & S2), we bitch about it.:Eyecrazy:
This is true addiction, but not to the phone, rather to the process. Jumping to the Droid is not for the reason you don't like your phone, you want something else to fill up your time. Instead of constantly looking for upgrades, leaks or fixes for your phone, which have all been fixed like we wanted right, the Storm offers no more challenges, it's fixed, it works, so now what do I do?:crazy:
Does any of this sound familiar or is it hitting a nerve? Thought so, you wouldn't admit it anyway. :no:
Don't get me wrong, I fully understand, my insight comes from experience, not observance, however, I've had my WinMo days and I kinda like not having to constantly fix my phone or looking for that next piece that will make it all work. Now I have time to go for a ride up into the mountains with the wife. The Wing calls and it's a Siren's call, so I must go and ride, and I ride with a working phone that doesn't need fixing. I'll bitch about that later, now, I just ride.:cool:
