    Thanks olta but I think I'll stay away from software fixes.

    I am with you. I would rather it be working right from the start. Definitely try Jlevy's suggestion. It works.
    That's what I'll do. I'm now at 5.8% an hour and 39% left. Dropping pretty quick but I have been on here a lot tonight.

    Thank you both.

The OS is very stable, so stable in fact I have not bothered to try any of the hybrids out there. I have twice as many apps installed than I did on my storm and I am still sitting at 120mb, gotta love that.
    you just described my storm on 5.0...RELIABLE....only exception is that i'm sitting at 35mb but in reality,what's the difference other than a warm fuzzy feeling?

I can't go into details for obvious reasons but typing on it will be a thing of beauty. There are also a few other surprises in store. If you want the best that VZW has to offer now than the Tour is probably it. But in a few months you may be wishing you had the Storm 2. Just my two cents to a fellow member.
    Did you say version 8. Where's the love man

    Tried out the storm, what a nightmare!! Glad I never bought it and played with a friends, still a mess, love the Tour, battery is great, also had a Palm Pre, great phone, horrible battery life, and great touchscreen, way better that storm, but went to a Tour (on Sprint) and very happy. 5 bars reception at home, 2 blackberries, unlimited data, texting, sprint tv, nav, and 1500mins, and after my discount (23%) I pay on $97. I'm now a happy camper. Sorry verizon, I'm not paying you $30 bucks to use a BBERRY!

    Well, after using the Tour for over 3 weeks swapping between my Storm I decided to stick with the Storm running BBC's v8 and wait for the Storm 2 and sent the Tour back. After hearing from hands-on sources and reading online, the Storm 2 just isn't a big enough improvement on the S1 for me. As I keep hearing/reading, the S2 "is what the S1 should have been". That's just not good enough for me. Don't get me wrong, the Tour has no "wow" factor either but it is better than the S1 for me & better than waiting on the S2 which is not that big of an improvement IMO.

    So, I'm sticking with the Tour.

    Thanks for all the input!
