    Wirelessly posted (Das STROMM 9530)

    I got my Storm in January and have not replaced it. There is one bug that I could bring it in for. The screen dimmer is gonzo. It doesn't matter what it is set to in software; it gets bright and dim at random times. I am afraid that a replacement Storm might click differently and be annoying. My screen originally didn't move much in the top left corner, but nowadays it is broken in nicely and feels great. Newer Storms have a revised click button that is easier to click but feels mushy to me.

    I've had my Storm from day one, and it's survived a wide variety of said "challenges" (dust under screen, ghost crack in the corner of the screen, the list goes on). I was trying to hold off on getting a replacement, and wait for the Storm 2.
    But alas.. off to VZW I go.

    I woke up this morning to find that my Storm would not stop rebooting, as soon as I took it off the charger. Couldn't even get into safe mode.

    I feel your pain. I went through about 12 Storms, and 3 tours for the same reason. I think QC is doing a fantastic job don't you think

    Wow that's allot of Stormage!!:bigeyes:

    When I went to my local VZW today to get my replacement Storm, the tech couldn't believe that I was still on my first Storm (well until this morning that is). I told him that I was hoping that it would of lasted until I got the Storm2, but oh well.

    Agreed.
    Most of the Storm owners that I've run across, had no idea as to what they were doing... yet alone how to operate a BlackBerry (I guess they were thinking the Storm was an iphone clone :crazy: ).

    Original purchase on Jan 7, 2009 and replaced 1 time withing 30 days for dust under screen. Been fine since then though the screen on this replacement does wiggle from side to side quit a bit but works fine.
    When in doubt, pull the battery out!

    On my first one since February and so is the wife. Granted I have the dime on the back of it to make the screen click better but i don't want to replace it because everything else is working fine and replacing might make the screen click better without the dime but may break evrything else. I have upgraded, downgraded, wipped, reloaded and done everything imaginable to it but it's working like a champ so I can deal with the dime in the back of it, besides I'm waiting for the Storm 2 just like everyone else. (Oh goody it's almost out):09:

    My first and previous Storm was purchased on Nov. 28, 2008... and received on Dec. 1, 2008.

    She did well with many an upgrade and downgrade, as well as survived my son's throwing arm. I actually thought she was going to make it just in time for the release of the Storm2... but alas I was wrong.

    I too am very cautious about refabs... nothing but headaches most of the time.

    But this replacement that I picked up yesterday seems to be fitting the bill.. so far.

    I'm on number 2. The first one lasted Dec 25-August 25th(ish) until the buttons started to fall off. The only tough part about getting a new one is having to break in the screen again. It is just stiff, which makes the typing a little slow at first.
