I also am on my original S1, my g'f is on her second one, due to a camera glitch, but both have always worked, they get pretty good reception where other carriers do not, and even gets reception where other Verizon phones have had weak signal. It is still a valid option for a BB device, but has been pretty much thrown away by those in charge of making new operating systems.
Now that you mention it Bugly, your right. All S1 users have suffered the cold shoulder from RIM for quite sometime now. And if you look at the sudden drop of official releases for the S2, they're experiencing the same thing. Come to think of it, S1 users lost the love shortly before and after the S2 was released. So from that can we infer the S3 is on it's way?
Storms are great phones in general, but one weakness for S1 may be its screen. For this S2 is a drastic improvement from S1.
They aren't buying the device anymore. Verizon gives it away for free with a service contract, and I believe it's the same for all other cell distributers that are offering the Storm 2. So I guess people are still getting it because it is free with a plan.

I think anyone could find bugs and faults with any Device, if you look hard enough. I had a storm 1 two BB's ago, and it was a good device. It did develop a issue that basically 'nuked' it. Fair play to Vodafone UK they replaced it no BS. The only thing I didn't like was the touchscreen, but then I'm a keyboard person when it comes to BB's
Yea, for me there was something about that surepress of committing to the action that makes texting easy on the Storm. I have a harder time texting on iPhone and Droid devices.
