    Just curious

    How many of you out there are still on your first Storm1? I have had mine since may and have had no problems (short of software), and I'm seeing plenty of posts where there have been multiple returns and warranty issues with this device.
    My g/f and I have had the same device since May and neither of us has had problems with them. Is it possible this device is just not suited to certain people's lifestyles, or is it luck?
    I'm asking this mainly because there are many devices that have had a bad reputation for either breaking or failing in some way. An example is my last phone, a Motorola RAZR V3m. I never had the battery problems everybody else claimed, maybe it is because I plugged it it every night? The flip never got loose or broke in any way, maybe I lead a charmed life.
    What are your thoughts on this? I'm curious as to who still has their first Storm1 still working after several months....

    Well, technically I still have my 1st Storm. My wife is using it now after I upgraded to a S2. But it is still working great. I actually miss the click on the S1. Makes me sad everytime I pick up my wifes phone now. My original S1 from Jan 09 has been a trooper. Fantastic little phone indeed.

    To be honest, I'm very happy with my Storm 1 right now. Both my wife and I got Storm 1's on launch day (Nov 22, 2009), and yes, the first few months were a struggle. Somehow, RIM and Verizon have incrementally 'fixed' most of my gripes, and the Storm now fits like a well-worn pair of gloves. My gripes are with the Verizon signals in my neighborhood, and the only thing that would improve that is not a new Verizon device, but a switch to another carrier (which we're still contemplating, except we are moving in the next 4-5 months!). That said, upgrading my Storm to .419 last week seemed to worsen my data signals, so I'm a little irritated by that, but once again, I think if Verizon's signals were better, I wouldn't have any complaints. Whenever I'm on a trip, I'm just amazed at how snappy and responsive the Storm 1 is!

    I've resisted upgrading to the Storm 2...mainly because I'm still not sure about the Verizon signals...and the lure of something like the HTC Passion still beckons. I think it's just the 'boredom factor' of not having a flashy new toy that keeps me lookiing, but the Storm 1 is working just fine for me.

    If the rumored Storm 3 has a chance of being released this year, I'll be all over it!

    I'm also on my first storm and haven't had any major issues with it. A little bit of dust at one corner of the screen but liveable. I've had mine since February 09.

    Running fine here since 1/09 with no hardware complaints. I like the click screen and have had no problems with it. Running on .419 it is a pleasure to use. Thinking I will skip Storm 2 and wait for 3 - No rush here.
