    Have had my original Storm 1 (Verizon) since December '08 and no problems (other than the numerous OS). Currently running .328 and am 99% satisfied. Never had any of the physical problems like dust or click issues. Battery has held up well. I also previously had a Razor VC3 which was without any problems.

    When you went from .328 to .419, did you find that your overall data reception and speed got slower/weaker? This happened to my Storm, to the point where I'm ready to re-install .328. I wonder if .419 isn't "tuned" to Verizon's signals as well, since it wasn't a VZW-sanctioned release.

    I did not appreciate any deterioration in signal strength or data transmission after going from V10 to .419. I'm in the DC region.

    Storm 1

    I've had my Storm 1 since November of 08 (launch date) I have abused it to no end with every update possible and with 328 and now 419 - I'm very satisfied and plan to stay here until the bugs get out of the newer Droids. I got my wife and daughter the HTC Eris and have played with those for the last couple of months and the e-mail doesn't even come close to Blackberry - and for what I use the Storm for in business - that is a deal breaker for me. On the other hand - my daughter is from the new generation and she is as hooked on her Eris as I am the Storm - keep in mind she is a SR in college and hasn't had to put it to the business use test yet - so we'll see what happens upon graduation to the real world !!

    Hanging Strong with my Storm 1 - Happy New Year ALL !!

    Good to see there are more out there than just myself. I was starting to think I was some kind of oddball without hardware problems. My boss has been through several devices and has had problems with all of them, I'm starting to think it's a matter of how you handle them and take care not to misuse them. JMHO, of course.
    If there was ever a "proving ground" for how tough a device is, it would be where I work. I am an auto mechanic and keep my 'berry in my work pants pocket while at work. I get pretty banged up during the day and there have been times I thought my phone was going to be broken when I pulled it out of my pocket, but it held up famously so far... *finding the nearest wood object and knocking...*

    I really can't say I have had that many problems with my S1. When I first got it, over a year ago, I had to have it replace bc I cracked the screen. But other than that it has been real good for me. In fact, as the OS gets better the device performs better!!!

    I got my S1 in early January '09 and never had any of the problems folks were cursed with. As time has passed, I've been keeping my fingers crossed to not have it die, given the referb would probably be in the lemon category misery loves! I figure that's why I didn't get any email or snail mail offers from Verizon. I've never filed a complaint. From the wear and tear department - mine has had way more than it's share of drops, squeezes, wedged-in experiences during it's lifetime and has been as reliable as any phone I've owned! Played with the new ones when they came out and saw the offers people were getting, but with the latest hybrid I couldn't be more satisfied. I know, I know...I just don't know what I'm missing.....ya think?!? (wifi would be nice)

    im still on my very first storm since Dec.08

    I believe its Luck, many users complain about this issue and problems as you said, i agree. I joined the forums for a reason to get involved..

    The only problem i had was the OS 4.7 an first official release of 5.0 which SUCKED ass!! i hated it, made me not like my storm so much. but ever since .419 released. ive been so happy. Happy new years. 2010.
