    I said that to say this....I am satisfied with my device. This Blackberry OS is amazing. I would have liked to see the Tabbed browsing feature incorporated into this build however, Most features of this device are very functional and reliable for now.

    Great thread Bx...:fing02:

    *EDIT* you know I'm getting the New Storm.....Hurry up October....:banana:

    Storm 1 has gone through an amazing metamorphosis since launch. About the only complaint I have with the v5 OS is the 3rd party app problems, which I assume will go away once apps are being developed with it in mind... Wifi would be nice, but after all the stuff we've been through, I can't see myself dumping my good ol' 9530...

    I am not due an upgrade until October 2010 so I plan to stick with my 9530 for awhile. I must admit that the updates to 5.0 have made a major difference in the phones usability.

    I am unsure what I will do, I am a bit of a phone junky and I feel like I have just started on my quest to own every blackberry there is.

    Having said this, I will wait until the new year to upgrade, I am looking into getting the htc hero with the sense ui as well.

    I am a blackberry lover but I love phones in general as well.

    I'm pretty happy with the phone's OS as long as the screen remains clickable

    I'm going to wait it out... and see what 2010 brings to the Storm family... maybe 16GB of built in flash? or a slimmer looking handset? or both? One can only hope!

    I'm not up for an upgrade till summer of next year. I'm quite comfortable with my storm, but I'd like to have the storm2 just because it's new. When 5.0 rolls out it's gonna be a different storm & RIM gonna release it 32 days after the storm2, just so people with storm1 that upgraded can't return it. Lol. Oh, and I'll wait for the storm3.

    Hello quiet1. If you are developing signs of repetitive stress injury to your thumb, you should know a couple of things; as continued stress to the joint can lead to quite unpleasant things, up to and including thumb surgery.

    First and most important point: the root cause of these RSIs (generically called "BlackBerry Thumb") is simply the mechanics of the way the thumb works. Our thumbs have the least dexterity of any of the digits, and are simply not designed for repetitive motions such as typing on a thumb keyboard. It's not the amount of force needed to initiate on-screen actions that causes the problem, it's simply the number of times the joint is moved.

    Any device with a thumb operated keyboard, virtual or not; click or not, can cause this problem. Thus the term "BlackBerry Thumb" - the term was coined way before the Storm released and has nothing to do with "physical thumb board vs. virtual" and also has nothing to do with clickiness/lack thereof.

    If anything, a Storm 2 would excaberate the problem, as it actually allows a person to type FASTER, thus causing MORE stress on the joint. In summary, it's the amount of typing you are doing as well as the speed you are doing it at, not the way the Storm 1 screen clicks.

    I would still recommend getting a Storm 2 IF you want one, as it's shaping up to be quite a nice device. But if you really like your Storm 1 and it works well for you, I just wanted to advise against switching to S2 simply because of your thumb pain, as IMHO that would be a waste of money and leave you disappointed.

    Another recommendation of mine is to temporarily switch to using your pointer finger for your Storm typing/navigation needs until your thumb heals. And try to minimize the amount of typing you do on your device. Try to keep your messages short and to the point, if a simple yes/no will suffice then don't feel bad about a "short" answer - your thumbs will thank you for it. Oh, and one more thing - try to avoid marathon 2-hour Guitar Hero World Tour sessions on your Storm *LOL*

    (Saying the last from experience, I am currently suffering from BlackBerry thumb myself from playing GH-WT for 2 hours yesterday afternoon. Last night my thumb was so sore I couldn't move it, today it is just stiff as a board)
