    Why if the blackberry storm has bad reviews, everybody is buying it?

    I read bad reviews in the internet but still people are buying the blackberry storm, why.

    If people don't have something to ***** about, they get bored. I still use a Storm 1 and with the updated OS's loaded on it, the phone works nicely. It's definitely a far cry from when it was originally released.

    I agree with amcatania, Ive had the S1 since day one and still use it today. When it first came out, there were bugs in it....alot of bugs. But like everything, RIM has improved the OS from the 4.7 series and the hybrid makers have only improved them to the point where the S1 has become a phenomenal smartphone today...to the point that I will continue using my S1 until the S3 does come out with QNX as the OS. Please keep in mind, when the QNX is finally loaded onto a smartphone, there will be bugs and issues with it as well. It's called growing pains.

    We can all take a look at all the smartphone out there, and we will surely find issues with all of them. Much like we ***** about the :AR15firing:iphone, :AR15firing:iphone sites ***** about the blackberry.

    With all that said, my son HAD an :AR15firing:iphone until he got fed up with his 3rd replacement because of a small issue with the battery potentially catching fire, and went to a BB. He has stated several times that he has no idea why he wasted his time and just didn't go with a BB immediately. And yes, he also uses the Storm.

    People who do ***** about the Storm have to keep this in mind, it won't do your laundry, it will not cook for you, and it will not make your life a rosey picture of success. After all, at the end of the day it's only a smartphone. It just happens to be the best damn smartphone on the market....oh the price of success

    Had a 1 and use a 2 and have had good luck with both! The available themes out there make them more functional and fun. A solid business product let's me keep my laptop in the office when I'm on the road.

    I enjoy my S1. My major issue is with lack of memory and memory leaks. Internet is bad also and lack of wifi. Other than that The S1 is not a bad machine now.
