    Good riddence. I have found the majority of Storm owners to be spoiled brats.

    Sad part is now you have over a million people locked into AT&T. How they made a mistake. Now the 2g IPhone would have been a better choice. Just because you can unlock and jailbreak and make use of other carriers. Not to mention you can use Cydia for free apps.

    I didn't know that the 3G can't be unlocked...I thought all of them were capable of that. That sucks for people then

    The dev team has been working on it since the release of the first 3g phone, they release a software program called yellowsnow that would jailbreak the 3g but not unlock it yet. I havent kept up on it they may have release a version that would work on the original 3g but not on the new one I know for sure.

    I agree but the 2nd generation one (the original 3G) is now prices at $99 and it's leaps and bounds better than the first gen. I had mine jailbroken the first week I had. Was tethering on that thing a long time ago

    Yeah, I do a lot of business in China and had it unlocked over there. So i was using it on my tmo account which for overseas roaming is so much better than AT&T

    I will give you all a tease, where the Storm 2 really excels is in typing and more available RAM. The days of meterberry will be long gone. However, overall IMO it's essentially the same phone.

    Believe it or not the Storm as with any other BlackBerry already beats the IPhone in what it was designed for. And as much as I hate to say it the IPhone beats the Storm as a multimedia device, but that is where it stops. The Storm as with any BlackBerry is designed with the business user in mind and this was RIM's first stab at the world of Multimedia. It hasnt faired to well but for what I use it for it is leaps and bounds ahead of the iphone for personal business asst. Now the IPhone may make it there someday as maybe the Storm may make it into the multimedia arena someday. Both companies are working hard to take over each others market share. Only time will tell.

    Very well stated. Are you including web into multimedia as this is one area where RIM really needs to step it up. I would really like to see a better syncing set up than google sync. Apple's mobileme is seamless and works for both PC and Mac users where RIM really screws all of us Mac users. Sorry but in my line of biz a Mac is a requirement.

    I agree with you j, it is an area that needs focus. However the BES set up blows away anything that Apple has out currently. I think as time progress and dev gets further you will see both RIM and Apple have almost the same market share into each others original area. The question is who gets there first. Whomever does will be on top and tough to take down.

    If you are talking about BES hands down without question RIM is far superior. Apple has a loooonnggg way to go in that arena.

    Yes I am talking about BES. I think in a nutshell RIM has been in the business realm as long as Apple has been into the Multimedia realm. Now they both want what each other has. And it a race to see who gets there first.
