    Need some advice from fellow Storm owners

    Hey guys, I just realized i have an upgrade available with my verizon account. So with that said, I have the ability to obviously upgrade and get a Tour....or I can wait and get the Storm 2. What are your opinions. I want to know.

    PS: i've played with the tour and i love it. it's dead balls reliable and very very very easy to use.

    I say wait until you can play with the Storm 2 and do a good comparison of the two.

    I would agree with bigdaddy. You may want to wait and not waste your upgrade until you get to test the two side by side. From all the stuff coming out with respect to Storm 2 it looks like the BB to beat (except for maybe the 9700 which is a GSM phone for now).

    Storm 2. I have the tour as well. I use a 9530 and my better half has the 9630. The second gen Blackberry touchscreen will be IMO a completely different device.

    My only worry is that the blackberry storm 2 will have the same software issues the original did at launch. which is a headache =/

    I am going to disagree with you there. RIM has learned from their errors and I would bet Bryan's life that the Storm 2 OS, out of the box will be kick ass.

    Awwh, man I'm stuck with my 9530 Storm for another year since they would not let me do a 1 year contract so if I want a Storm 2 VZW will have to offer me an upgrade or let me cook for them and then I'll see some love, other than that I have to pray for a 5.0 leak that is better than 140. Let's hope they let me cook for an upgrade, that's my best option
    When in doubt, pull the battery out!

    Wait for S-2, it like all the BB's will have some sort of software issue at first release. I seriously doubt the software issues with the original Storm will resurface in S-2.

    I would still wait til Octiber. If the S2 comes out then, get both the Tour and S2 and do a side by side comparison.

    I'm with most folks here, wait until you can do a side by side. My personal feelings are the Storm 2. I've had my original Storm since Nov 08 and it's the only Storm I've had. With the recent hybrids coming out it feels like the phone I thought I purchased. My guess is that the Storm 2 will be the phone it should be. I'm with jlevy, RIM has probably learned a lot from the original and will make S2 a much better phone.

    Just my $1.50 worth. :-)

    this is a really tough question... It depends on a lot of things. Do you have the patience to wait until AT THE EARLIEST October? Do you like touch screens? The list goes on. But I too agree with bigdaddy and if you can wait to do a true comparison of the two I would. If it were me, I would probably do the impulsive thing and get the Tour. But then again I have a 9530 and would kinda like to have a physical keyboard BB again. But I have a feeling the 9550 may change that thought process...

    If you like the multimedia aspect of the storm, then no doubt S2 is the way to go.
    P.S. I have an upgrade too.

    right now i'm using .132 base w/lyricidal's beta6v7. and my storm is running phenomenally. But i kinda like the tour also. since i have 3 upgrades within a 3 month period. I'm thinkin i could grab a tour, rock it for a while, then buy the S2

    You will like the 9630. It is a very sleek device.
    Very responsive as well.
    I have not had any complaints with my Tour.

    But it is not a Touchscreen....Had to throw that in there..

    Good luck buci1er
