BlackBerry Storm2 Now Live On Verizon Website; Buy One Get One Applicable!!

157 Comments

i want to know where my upgrade offer is, they owe us storm 1 owners an upgrade for beta testing their phone so they could make this revised product.

I'm not a Verizon customer, but why do you think they owe you an upgrade. AT&T didn't offer an upgrade for IPhone or Iphone 3G instantly. Why does everyone want something for free??

we don't want anything for free, he's just saying we should be able to upgrade with out any fees, just for the regular 2 yeaar price and I agree with him. It would be the right thing to do instead of making us pay the full price.

Yeah but if you want to upgrade you can't order online...damn VZW...oh well I'll pick mine up at the store tomorrow morning

First shipment was for 30. tomorrow is inventory for some stores so more will arrive fedex today and tomorrow

Not only did I get one, but I got 2 of them;). I was the first one sitting in the parking lot at 9:50 for the store to open at 10. I ended up being the second one in the que to upgrade my phone as I wasn't standing in the rain when there was no one there. An older couple walked up to the door just as they were unlocking it. The store got 35 of them in for today. I think they will be ok. For those that are complaining about the MIR, I walked out without paying a penny today, the whole bill got charged to my account. I am allowed 250 per line for a total of 500 since i was upgrading 2 lines. I will have the rebate card before I pay that bill and can just apply it right to the phone bill.

You can now order even if you already have an account....though you could just wait for the store to open at this point.

because it wont gimme the option to add a line or buy it full retail. i guess i have to go in the store.

with the 5.0 software on the original storm , and the storm 2 having wifi and a improved screen , what could they possibly do with a 3rd generation of the storm?

hmm im going from att to Verizon because of the storm. I jest tried to order it online and it looks like with a BB I have to chose a BB email option. is that true??? is ther any way around?? with att you don't have to.

Verizon makes you purchase their data package, which includes the BB email option. That includes your text, email, and internet. I think it's $25.00. That's the downside and what limits some people from purchasing BB's with Verizon. Even though I couldn't comprehend having one without internet, e-mail, or text.

and txt message is extra. so the lowest you'll pay a month with taxes and recovery something or other is close to $100 hmmm currently on my curve with att im paying 59.04 including 200 txt msg hmmmm hmmmm

My wife has a curve with VZW with Unlimited Data/Txt/Email and 450min for $70 (total after taxes). She was paying $80 and she could get 900min + Friends & Family but never used that much.

At&t announced on Sept. something that all of there pda's/blackberrys will require their internet package so, no reason not to go with Verizon for a blackberry if you get better service. Because either you'll be playing 30 bucks extra a month.

ya I read that too but maybe because im a current customer they are not adding internet....maybe if i update to the bold2 they probably will...so i might jest buy the storm2

WOW they are not letting any online orders happen with this phone I am not even logged in and it wont even display the phone I guess it means we have to wait until the original business day to kick off to order it online

I didn't see anything about the BOGO, and it let me get as far as checkout, but I don't want to complete it without the BOGO. This is my first time using the Verizon Online store, so don't know if I'm doing something wrong. Any help?

from what i understand , thats a cdma thing. if you look at sprint they also have 160 limit . it doesnt bother me anymore with the threaded text

Yes it's a CDMA thing. I've never found it that big of a hassle. There are some blackberry programs that allow you to type more and it sends it in multiple texts.

Dealers price of this phone is $505 and with these BOGO deals.......I just love how they screw dealers and most of the time corporate locations can't even match these promos either.

Just purchase it took a long time to order they where updating the systems, it came out around 12:15 est. if you have trouble towards the end if takes you off line just reload the page and it will tell you it's in your cart.. hope this helps you also had such a bad experience with that chat window that pops up when your ready to order wow what an A** they had me on hold for over 20 min and this was on chat i did not even asked for it lol anyways i'm getting my Storm 2 hoping by Thurs....i can breath now..FYI not the Asurion Ins. for the Storm went up to 6.00. anyways i'm siked..

Doesn't show up on my business discount page. Guess I'll wait until the morning and see if it shows then. I'm not getting a plan without my 20% discount and 25% on accessories :)

So Im taking it that current customers cant upgrade. Everytime I try to upgrade my Storm to the Storm 2 the the phone doesn't show up as an option. But when i log out its available. Anyone have the same issue? I really want the phone, BAD case of the BB syndrome right now.

Yes, thats what I did. When im logged in, every blackberry will show up for upgrade availability other than the 9550. Could it be that im not eligible or what?

you should be, i'm up for upgrade and at first it was not showing on the upgrade list than i click on the black berry folder than it was there, and i was able to order the upgrade...

I'm an existing customer and when I log in there is no Storm 2 to purchase but I can see and order it if I log out. I guess since they already get my money on a monthly bases new suckers....er clients take priority.

MEEE TOO! So you think that they're only taking orders for new customers. We've been waiting for this phone since we got the storm. JEEZ verizon, gimme a bone.

i have two phone and are secondary line on a family share plan that are upgradable...it will not let me do to bogo...does it have to me the primary that needs to be upgrade and then the free to any other help!

I live in NYC, it was not showing me the device so i opened a different browser and the site asked for zip code. I gave zip code for Freemont, CA and guess what the phone poped up in the list of blackberry devices. On the other browser which locates me in NYC I still can't see the phone the list.

Hope this information helps those eager to order.

Perhaps we should all wait to see the Droid first anyway.

I have to wait till April before I upgrade. With no special deal for me it will give me time to study all the new phones first. I consider myself lucky.

speak for yourself. i would get the pearl before getting anything other then a blackberry. you can wait on that droid all you want

About 2 hours ago I saw the Storm2 on VZW but when I logged into my account...like everyone else...it wasn't available. Just now when I went in (not logged in), it has disappeared from the site. They are playing games with us all! Come on VZW...just let us place our orders!

I just went there searched Storm 2. Pulls it up but when you click on it, say temp unavailable. Probably a good thing too cause I just wanna buy it and I should probably wait a few months before taking the dive, even with this great offer.

This time I see it when I log in, choose the plan and all the other bs BUUUUT at some point it asks me if I want a new numer or would like to port an existing number. WTF!?!? Im obviously an existing customer since I'm logged in so why is this even a prompt?

Anyway that's as far as I can get.

i think i will wait for the verizon motorolla driod it comes out on novmeber 6 which isnt that long from now if you dont know about this phone yet i advise you to do sum research this phone may just very well crush every phone including the iphone and certainly the storm2 thats why theres been no fanfair or promo for the storm2 cus their saving all that type of stuff to promote the verizon driod plus i got info from an inside source that verizon is gearing up for a big november release referring to this phone so if i was you i'll just wait for a lil bit then decide if you dont wait you may very well regret it when the verizon driod comes out

Still bothers me that there is no push from Verizon about this phone.....I will wait for a couple months to see everyone elses reaction to it....if I am going to upgrade early i will wait to see how people review Storm2 and the Droid....then Ill spend the ton of money to upgrade early.

Current customers can now purchase the Storm2, though you could just wait for a store to open at this point.

Without an upgrade option, I'll pass. At least we've got 5.0 for the Storm1. I'll be checking out the Droid in the meantime.

Update: Storm2 is now avilable for upgrade customers as well. I did not get offered the bogo deal however. I was told yesterday by a verizon rep that you get bogo with an additional line but not on family plan (like i am) for secondary phone line. Not sure now if I could have got that offer when calling as I was not given a choice when oredering online ...

I thought you meant if you buy a 2 you get a 1 for free. Sorry my bad. I talked to a Verizon Rep and he said they might give out the storm 1's for free regardless of whether your up for an upgrade or not, as long as you buy a 2.

I'm not sure what more fanfare needs to be shown with SOOO many people already cramming onto VZ site.

Plus this is not an iphone blog so if you feel that the iphone is a 'real phone' why even be a member of crackberry??

I am able to get upgrade on NE2 from my Storm to a Storm2 for $79.99. Last November I added a line and then made my Storm the primary line therefore when NE2 became available in May my Storm was the phone I could upgrade :)...

Screen shot available http://x-moc.com/images/upgrade.jpg

I am surprised but there's not one other person at the Verizon Wireless store in North Miami, and this is usually a very busy store in general.

I guess I'm first, and hopefully, they'll have the Storm2.

I pre-ordered... I wasn't sure if I was going to or not but I figured why not?

Are there any other Verizon VIP people out there? I got the original storm on the day it came out but I was also able to get the storm for $179. That is after Verizon sent me some texts in the past couple weeks saying I am eligible for a new phone.

But when I check the website it says that I'm not eligible for an upgrade until July!!! Where they got that date I have no idea because I got my Storm on Day 1 and I was 1st in line! (I still have my original and it works just fine too).

Somehow I don't think your situation will be typical for most of us... And how did you Preorder because Verizon doesn't do preorders?

I am a VIP member to and I was elegable for an up grade but somehow it worked out that i got Two phones for free! im Verizon's Happiest customer right now but i defiantly suggest calling them instead of doing it over the internet it was so much easier.

Well I meant order, not pre-order... sorry. I meant it in the sense that the stores will have it tomorrow and I purchased it online today.

I just call Verizon Rep. They told me because I have good history, And that my upgrade is only one month away I can get the 2YR contract price of $179 but no $50 early upgrade discount until Nov 24 the day I upgraded to Storm1 so I'm going to wait til next month and see what happens with the reviews. The person told they are having some really cool new phones coming out. I love my Storm and going to upgrade to that when I can next month. Thought I would share. Been with them since 1996.

After getting to mess around with a dummy phone, I think this phone is nice. However, what I don't like is how much the touch screen depresses when you push. It makes it feel cheap and like it's gonna break. I hope this works better than Storm 1.

I just returned from my Verizon Store and they told me that it would not be available until next month, what is up with that? Has anyone been able to pick one up at a store yet?

VERIZON DROID IS BETTER IN EVERY WAY! WHEN COMPARED SIDE BY SIDE WITH THE STORM2 ITS NOT EVEN FAIR OR COMPENTION IT DOES EVERYTHING THE STORM2 DOES AND MORE (ALOT MORE) AND BETTER (ALOT BETTER) THE DROID IS GONNA DESTROY THE STORM2 (R.I.P STORM2) BRING ON THAT DROID NOW!!!! TRUST ME YOU WILL REGRET GETTIN THE STORM2 WHEN THIS PHONE DROPS.

i think i will wait for the verizon motorolla driod it comes out on novmeber 6 which isnt that long from now if you dont know about this phone yet i advise you to do sum research this phone may just very well crush every phone including the iphone and certainly the storm2 thats why theres been no fanfair or promo for the storm2 cus their saving all that type of stuff to promote the verizon driod plus i got info from an inside source that verizon is gearing up for a big november release referring to this phone so if i was you i'll just wait for a lil bit then decide if you dont wait you may very well regret it when the verizon driod comes out

Yeah, I am kind of waiting to see what this phone will be like too. But as far as people upgrading today if the release date for the droid is early Novemeber as rumored, then they will be able to return them and exchange them for the droid since it will be less than 30 days since they purchase\upgraded.

Looks like Verizon holds true to form and disabled the on-board GPS like normal...

VZ Navigator and VZ Navigator Global capable

Verizon unlocked GPS with the release of the Storm 1, and for smartphones since then. Welcome to the party late....

I was told by a Verizon rep at a corporate store that stores have to sell out of Storm 1 before they can stock Storm2. Not sure why they'd do that, but it could be true I suppose.

Since I'm fairly happy with OS 5.0 on my Storm1 I think I'm going to take a look at the Driod lineup. The research I've done indicates that Verizon will be launching a number of Droid phones in Q4, one of which (the HTC Passion) will have a 1Ghz processor. That's what I'm talking about.

THE DROID IS LAUNCHING NOVEMBER 6 WHICH ISNT THAT LONG FROM NOW AND IT IS MOS DEF GONNA BE WORTH THE WAIT

Why even post here over and over about a phone you haven't seen yet?
Maybe you didn't get the memo but this is 'CRACKBERRY' not 'DROIDVILLE'. Wrong site homie

I went and played with a storm2 today at a verizon store. Yes it was "better" than the storm1 in terms of speed and typing but it was essentially the same device. I have to admit I wasn't that impressed. There was nothing that screamed "Your storm1 is a piece of **** BUY ME NOW!!!" Lets see what DROID has to offer.

DON'T BOTHER TELLING ME HOW TO TYPE CUS IM PURPOSELY NOT GONNA LISTEN LOL! AND AGAIN DONT GET THAT STORM2 INSTEAD GRAB THAT DROID IM JUST TRYING TO HELP YALL WATCH HOW DISAPPOINTED YOU ALL BE WHEN THE DROID COMES OUT AND BRUTALLY MURDERS THE STORM2 LOL

anyone who thinks typing on that keyboard isn't wasting their time is welcome to go ahead and waste their time. the blackberry serves a purpose ... and you apparently just don't understand... have fun with your new toy... i hope you spend hours and hours wondering why you have one...

Be aware that the BOGO must be used with a second line (at a monthly fee) or family plan (also additional fee) ... can't be used as a "backup" phone

If I hadn't replied to the post above you I may not have noticed yours. I was scrolling through this stuff because I grabbed a Storm2 today and wondered if I should have known or am eligible for the BOGO because I'm giving away my Storm 1 and I would love to have something else for a back-up. If you're correct, my question has been answered. Thanks!

How is the droid going to handle Exchange, how is the document viewing/editing on it. I highly doubt it is going to be as useful to a business person as any blackberry. It may be a fun toy with all it's apps but it won't be as good as a blackberry is for business use

ant , your not making any sence . your on a blackberry forum hyping a non blackberry that you havent touched. besides , i doubt that anyone that visits a sight called crackberry , would thinking twice about the g1, with a new body

I get it now. This ant person is a droid head who is jealous of the new storm and wants to promote some new phone that is basically a new g1, or mytouch or whatever. They all are the same.

I thought about the Droid but I am a Blackberry person. Our company e-mail server requires it. I am good for 18 months. So that decision was decided for me. If nto for that I would have waited

muhahahah I got one.. only 3 smucks in front of me and they weren't there for the storm 2..

$279.00
$100 mail in rebate
$50 VIP

Total damage $129.00

I'm disappointed with Verizon today. With all the improvements to this over the original storm it should have been a big release. Instead it flew in under the radar and they aren't offering anything to the current Storm owners to upgrade. It seems they have put their chips in the Droid's basket which looks like every other phone out.

Just ordered online.

$279 retail
$100 instant rebate
$100 new-every-two
-------------------
$79 w/ free overnight shipping

Just went to the store & got it... first one there! So excited! It's such a cool phone, I'm loving it so far!

hooked up to the Enterprize Server now. Great to be corp customer. Upgraded our Storm1 against 2 old phones elegable for new every two and they gave us BOGO for $129.99 for the both of them.

GRUNDY, IM ON A BLACKBERRY FORUM CUS I OWN A BLACKBERRY THE STORM 1 TO BE EXACT BUT IVE DONE RESEARCH ON THE DROID AND THE STORM2 AND THE COMPARISON IS A LANDSLIDE IN THE DROIDS FAVOR SO IM NOT UPGRADING TO THE STORM2 AND I DONT HAVE TO TOUCH IT TO KNOW THAT ITS GONNA BE BETTER THEN THE STORM2 IT CANT POSSIBLY BE WORSE THEN THE STORM AND YOU OBVIOUSLY DONT KNOW TO MUCH ABOUT THR DROID IF YOU THINK ITS A G1 WITH A NEW BODY I ADVISE YOU TO DO RESEARCH DONT WORRY YOU'LL SEE WHEN IT COMES OUT ITS GONNA KILL THE STORM2 MARK MT WORDS IM JUST GONNA KEEP MY STORM 1 UNTIL THE DROID DROPS AND THEN GET THE FAR SUPERIOR DEVICE AND TO TROX I BELIEVE EXCHANGE,DOCUMENT VEIWING AND EDITING ON IT IS GONNA BE JUST AS GOOD AS ON THE STORM2 OR ANY OTHER BLACKBERRY/SMARTPHONE FOR THAT MATTER POSSIBLELY BETTER FACE IN A SIDE TO SIDE COMPARISON THE STORM2 SUCKS!!!!! COMPARED TO THE DROID ITS A FACT JUST LOOK AT THE COMPARISON FOR YOURSELFS I LIKE BLACKBERRY LIKE I SAID I HAVE A BLACKBERRY BUT I KNOW THE DROID IS AND IS GONNA BE THE BETTER DEVICE AND THE BEST DEVICE IS THE DEVICE I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE AND SINCE THE DROID IS A VERIZON PHONE AND IM A VERIZON CUSTOMER EVEN MORE REASON FOR ME TO GET THE DROID INSTEAD OF THE STORM2 YOU TO TELL ME I GET TO HAVE THE BEST PHONE OUT WITHOUT LEAVING MY CARRIER? IM ALL FOR IT I HOPE YALL KNOW THAT THE DROID IS GONNA BE THE FLAGSHIP PHONE OF VERIZON PEOPLE VERIZON DOESNT EVEN CARE ABOUT THE STORM2 LOL! WHY SHOULD I? BRING ON THAT DROID SO I CAN GET RID OF MY CURRENT STORM

PSS-One more thing. I just looked at the Droid on Verizons site. It's ugly! The Storm however is beautifully designed as well as the iPhone. GET OVER IT! Stop being a bb hater! There is nothing that the Droid will offer that will be earth shattering or that any phone on the market doesn't already have! JUST AN FYI! :)

I want to see more reviews of the Storm2 in comparison to the Storm. I went thru ---> 4 Storms. LOL I raised hell and FINALLY got my Tour! I absolutely love the Tour. However, there are so many things that I miss about having the big beautiful touchscreen minus the SurePress at times being kinda lame and inaccurate. I already called cs and asked if I could get the Storm2 w/o having to pay full price. I can but I have to wait until the 1-yr mark which will be when i got the original Storm last Nov. Anywho, I wanna know if it will be worth putting my Tour on the back burner?! And yes, I'm totally obsessed and essentially don't need it but who cares we want what we want. :-)

PS - antdagod please get off of CRACKBERRY talking about a phone that isn't a bb or even out yet. People come here because they are dedicated bb users. We love all the features that a bb has to offer whether it's the business aspects or the fun stuff. The DROID is by Motorola!!! Rrrreally! Motorola! Haha... If I wanted something app based and and strictly cool looking I would get an iPhone!

...and it has all ready froze on me twice! Love the new screen and how it feels. I can type much faster on the Storm2. Went to Best Buy this morning to get it there, saw the display model but was told they would not be carrying them until November 1st. So off to Verizon I went, walked right in and got my Storm2 for $90 total.

THANKS BUT NO THANKS IMA STAY RIGHT HERE AND CONTINUE TO LET YOU KNOW THAT THE STORM2 IS GONNA SUCK COMPARED TO THE DROID LOL I MEAN ITS ALL GOOD NOW UNTIL THE BETTER DEVICE COMES OUT AND WATCH HOW MANY PEOPLE SWITCH SIDES AND JUMP SHIP YOU LAUGH AT THE FACT THAT THE DROID IS BY MOTOROLA AND I LAUGH AT THE FACT THAT YOU GOT A STORM2 INSTEAD OF WAITNG TO GET THE DROID HA HA HA HAAAAAAAAAAAAA HA HA HA AND YOU SHOULD GET AN IPHONE AND EVEN THOUGH I DONT LIKE THE IPHONE (IN FACT I HATE IT) IM STILL PRETTY SURE THAT THATS A BETTER PHONE THEN THE STORM2 ASWELL I COULD BE WRONG ON THAT ONE THOUGH

This is killing me, my wife picked them up this morning at our local store, but I can't even see mine till I get out of work! However, I'm finally off AT&T's horrible network (No 3G in my area unless I feel like driving 50 min) and I was not expecting the BOGO on the Storm2!! Can't wait to get home...to see my wife of course, lol!!

Got the storm 2 had it for an hour now and it is amazing! It is lightning fast and the feel of typing on it is much improved at least to me I think.

Yeah they need BOGO so they can show good sales numbers for this fail of a touch screen device. When the Droid comes out it will be the best touchscreen on AT&T and possibly period. This will just be another blur that no one cares about. So over it until they make an OS that's actually for a touchscreen device. iPhone with basically the same phone in 2 years has already caught up to consumer market share with RIM while RIM is sending out the same device with the same outdated and boring OS. Blah.

Is it just me or are mt fellow crackberry members tired of these stupid droid heads on here?
I for one am and wish they would go on over to the android site and jerk each other off over there about the droid...

LOSERS!!!

Hey everyone. This is my first post on this site although I have been following the site for quite a while. Thanks to everyone who posted info on the various Blackberries that have been released. My first Blackberry was the first Blackberry Curve for T-Mobile. I loved it and thought it was a great phone. However, when I realized I could unlock an iPhone for T-Mobile, I sold the Curve and bought the iPhone. I love the iPhone (2nd Gen.) and have owned it for almost two years. Have not had one complaint with it. I switched to Verizon in August because service with T-Mobile in my new home isn't the greatest, and purchased the BB Tour. I thought the Tour was a great phone but I was receiving a lot of complaints about sound quality from the people I would talk to, including my wife who also had the Tour. We sounded muffled to each other. I know plenty of other people with Verizon and no one else had this problem. I decided to return the Tours and return to T-Mobile until the release of the Storm2. I didn't want to buy a new iPhone because AT&T is terrible and 3G on iPhone's don't work with T-Mobile's 3G band. I could've stayed with T-Mobile and bought the Bold2 next week with Wi-Fi voice but I really can't say I would've been happy downsizing my screen. I've used some of my friend's Storm1's and thought the typing factor sucked. Not so much the click, but the responsiveness. I've been following everything on the STorm2 since early August and was really hoping it would turn out to be a great phone. Today I ordered two Storm2's online because of the instant rebate and then went into a store to try it out. I think they did a great job with the phone. I love Blackberries, and if I'm not going to use an iPhone, it's going to be a Blackberry. I actually like the fact that you have to click the screen, because many times with the iPhone, I found myself typing letters I didn't mean to because it was actually too responsive and I tend to type pretty fast. The Droid might have better specs, but personally I'm not a fan of Android's operating system. And besides that, if people are looking for something better than the iPhone, you're not gonna find it. iPhone is what it is because of it's innovations and the thousands of apps you can get for it. If you're really looking for that experience, get the iPhone and stop looking for the next best thing. I personally got a little tired of the iPhone after two years and needed a change. If Verizon gets it next year, maybe I'll switch back to it. Alternating between iPhones and Blackberries would be just fine for me. Can't wait to get my Storm2 tomorrow and tear it apart. The main reason I posted here is to tell everyone to stop arguing over which phone is better. That's all a personal preference. Everything gets old after a while. Buy what you like, whether it be an iPhone, Blackberry, Droid, or even StarTac...haha. There's different phones out there cause we're all different people. And don't complain about Verizon's lack of advertisement for this phone. Thanks to that we were all able to easily purchase the phone today, and we won't have the same phone as every other person walking down the street. That gets a little old. Trust me I just came from an iPhone. Peace Out!

Just got my storm 2. its pretty fast and the screen is much better. The only question I have is that the light indicator seems like has small cracks on it from inside. is this how it is suppose to be? or it is broken.

and for those who are still deciding to upgrade, If you really need the wifi, and you do hate your touch screen on storm 1 go head and upgrade. other than that just wait for a month or so to see the droid and then decide.

The Droid people will settle down and shut up once it comes out when they realize it's an ugly rectangle with a useless keyboard! What a peice of sh*t! But oh well Crackberry members, in the meantime we can let them entertain us with their stupid comments that they're typing from their mom's basement! F**king Losers!!!

First off I don't have a Storm2 I have a Tour. If you actually read what I posted I was simply thinking about getting the Storm2. You are such an idiot. This is a BLACKBERRY SITE. I seriously doubt loads of BB users are waiting for the Droid to come out. smh... No longer wasting my time on you!

So I've been reading lots and lots about both now, and I'm due for "New every 2," so now the question is should I just get the storm1 for FREE *I hear with the new software it's so much better than it was* or opt for spending the $129 and get the new Storm2. I really shouldn't be wasting money on a new phone but if I'm really going to be better off, I'd consider it worth it. Any advice? Thanks!

go to the store and play with them. it comes down to how much memory you need and how much faster you prefer type...

im a moron? but you're the one down playing a phone far more powerful then your stupid tour and lame storm2 who gives a fuck about blackberry you retard you act like just cus you're a crackberry member and a blackberry owner that you have to no matter what buy blackberries forever now, all you guys acting as if the storm2 is gonna trump the droid are idiots you'll see, its a reason why verizon pushed the storm2 out with no promo or fanfair THEY DONT CARE YOU DICKHEADS! the droid is the #1 player in town verizon will even tell you that its simple call verizon and ask them "what should i get? the droid or the storm2?" and they are gonna laugh at you for even asking like the answer would be something other then the droid LOL yeah right and stop saying "this is a blackberry site stop talking about the droid" so what if this is a blackberry site and so what if the droid isnt a blackberry its still gonna be the best device when it comes out at least it'll be better then the storm2 plus the iphone, palm pre and g1 arent blackberrys yet this site still managed to do sum coverage on those phones when they came out its no different with the droid what all these phone have im common is that their all smartphones so their all gonna get compared to each other its about having the best one and when compared to the the droid the droid wins as being better so dont go running around with your storm2 talking about you have the best blackberry/smartphone out when their numerous phones out and are coming out that are better truth is truth you can tell youself that the specs on the droid isnt crushing not only the storm2 but other phones aswell all you want but the facts dont lie when compared side by side to the storm2 the tell of the tape shows that the droid is far more powerful and is gonna rain supreme as the phone to have next to the (lame) iphone like i said watch how many people give up their storm2 for the droid when it comes out its gonna be overwhelming and again its not about having a blackberry its about having the best and when i get my droid i'll be glad to put it up against your storm2 just to show you that yes, it does everything your preious blackberry can do and more and it does it better. stop being so naive people there are phones better then blackberrys lets not forget the #1 phone on the market isnt a blackberry (iphone) talk shit about it all you like but the stats shows that it still tops every list as the best smartphone reguardless of how you feel about it

Hey Antdagod...At least we all know which button won't break on your bad ass Droid...The period button. Ever heard of one? That (?) by the way is a question mark and the (.) a period. Fucking 'tard.

Just picked mine up from big red.. Anyone know of I can use the same apps I used on the storm one. Paid and free..

you have no clue what you're talking about you shit brain faggot BTW da bears suck (55 times) just like the storm2 when compared to the droid you stupid fuck boy eat a dick then eat your storm2, shit it out and then have fun with it you shouldnt mind playing with shit since thats exactly what the storm2 is anyway LOL! YEAH IM AN ASSHOLE...SO FUCKING WHAT GO KILL YOURSELF IF YOU DONT LIKE IT HAAAAAAAAA HA HA HAAAAAAAA

I had to create a account just so I can chime in. Yo antdagod, i understand that you are in love with the DROID. I think we all know that and thats cool. You HATE the STORM and the IPHONE, for what reason, I don't know and don't care. Why do you have to come on and start acting like a damn fool? you said your peace and kept saying it, and saying it, and saying it. How many times do you need to insult the phones and people? Do you get off on doing this? Do you have other things to keep you busy? If not, why not continue to do research on the DROID and just wait till it comes out. Others prefer other phones and dont have to read things from someone who seems to just want attention and push there thoughts onto others who honestly don't give a fuck what you think. i think that was established a long time ago. So when the Droid comes out, write a LONG review of it for us.

I have been excitedly waiting for the release of the Storm2 for months now and was thrilled that this day had finally come. I went to my neighborhood Verizon store to look at the new Storm but didn't buy it. I wanted to share my thoughts. First and foremost I have to say I was pretty disappointed with the Storm2. Crackberry's review hit it on the head. This is a new model year and it is nice but it is not revolutionary in any way. I was hoping for more.

Don't get me wrong there are good things about this phone. It is faster, it looks a hair better (not as much as I thought it would), typing is improved, and of course it has WiFi but I've got to say that was really it. I guess if I'm gonna pay $200 for a phone there are a LOT of phones in that price range that are pretty nice.

This makes me sad. I love Blackberry. I love it functionally. I don't love this phone. I'm afraid I'm going to have to wait until next Friday and look at the (gulp) dreaded Droid. I really feel like I should compare the two. I believe the Storm2 will definitely win in a beauty contest but ultimately you have to live with the phone for awhile and they are expensive. I want to make sure I'm getting something really great for that price.

I DONT HATE THE STORM I HAVE THE STORM 1 BUT IM ALL ABOUT HAVING THE BEST DEVICE AND WITH THAT BEING SAID I KNOW THE DROID IS GONNA BE MUCH MORE BETTER THEN THE STORM2 IM NOT NOT TRYING TO PUSH MY THOUGHTS ONTO ANYONE I JUST THINK ITS FUNNY THAT YOU RETARDS ACTUALLY THINK THE STORM2 IS THE BETTER PHONE THEN THE DROID ITS COMEDY JUST LIKE YALL DONT GIVE A FUCK ABOUT WHAT I THINK I DONT GIVE GIVE TWO SHITS ABOUT WHAT YOU OR ANYONE ELSE THINK SO WE GOT THAT IN COMMON AND I STARTED INSULTING PEOPLE CUS I WAS INSULTED FIRST YOU'RE NOT GONNA DISRESPECT ME WITHOUT GETTING DISRESPECTED BACK AS FAR AS THE "CONTINUE TO DO RESEARCH" COMMENT ITS NOT NESSESARY I DID ENUFF RESEARCH TO KNOW THAT ITS NOT EVEN A CONTEST SO YOU GUYS GET YOUR STORM2'S ME AND WHOEVER ELSE IS GONNA GET OUR DROIDS AND WE'RE ALL...WELL HALF OF US ARE GONNA BE HAPPY (THE DROID OWNERS)THE OTHER HALF (STORM2 OWNER) ARE GONNA REGRET GETTING THE STORM2 AND SWITCH SIDES TO GET THE DROID I KNOW NOT ALL THE STORM2 OWNERS ARE GONNA REGRET IT SUM ARE GENIUALLY GONNA LOVE THEIR STORM2 OVER THE DROID NO MATTER WHAT BUT TIME WILL TELL WHICH DEVICE IS GONNA BE BETTER YOU WILL SEE

Hey Antdagod... hopefully your precious droid will have spell check. Or you could bookmark dictionary.com before your next post, you know out of sympathy for the rest of us having to read all of your dribble.

DON'T WORRY IT WILL I HOPE YOUR PRECIOUS STORM2 OR WHATEVER YOU HAVE BE AS GOOD A SMARTPHONE AS THE DROID (ODDS ARE IT WON'T)LOL!

I agree that the droid has alot of great specs. I mean I might but it, but I just don't like how it looks. Overall, it's just a phone. As long as you get what's going to work for you is all that matters. I have the Iphone now and I need something new. Should buy the droid but might drop cash on the storm 2 cause my wife loves the phone (and the 2nd ones free). Do me a favor, when to get the droid, let me know how you feel about it.

Here is AntDroid's official Droid review:

OMFG!!! THIS DROID IS SO E'FIN COOL!!! MY MOM GAVE ME MY ALLOWANCE TODAY AND I ASKED NANA TO DRIVE ME TO THE VERIZON STORE TO GET ME MY DROID AND OMG THIS PHONE ROCKS DUDE AND STORM 2 SUCKS CAUSE THE DROID IS COOL AND IM AWSOME BECAUSE I HAVE A DROID AND I AM FINGERING MY BUTT AND TAKING PICS OF IT WITH MY 5 MEGA PIXEL CAMERA AND OPPS I GOT DOO DOO ON THE KEY BUT WHO CARE CAUSE MY DROID IS COOL AND STORM 2 SUCKS ASS DUDE!

There you have it folks, you heard saw it here first. Antdagod's unofficial official review of the Droid.

AntDroid...your welcome...you fuck stick.

You guys are just totally pulling a 50 cent right now. I got a Storm 2 today and I am impressed because they made an improvement since the last storm. I give them props for that and I am a blackberry lover, but that dont mean we have to bash each others heads off trying to compare which phone is better or not because ultimately the people who are familiar with the blackberry os are gonna love the storm 2 and the ones who love the android os are gonna love that one as well. That does not mean just because I have a storm 2 that I am not gonna still explore my options and all and hey the droid might be a better phone idk? but either ways I come on here to see feedback about the storm 2 not to hear how the droid is such a better phone. NO DISRESPECT to ANYONE!! I just wanna see whats the best road to take when using my smartphone and I do want more for my money so how about we spend less time arguing about which phone is better than the other and we get some videos, links, or some type of reviews on the phones themselves and hey im not ashamed to say that I will be still checking out the droid forums. I am a verizon customer a VIP customer at that and I tried the Imagio didnt like it but think it has good features and perks. So i guess its time to evaluate the storm 2 and see if it lives up to the hype. REMEMBER alot of phones have been hyped up in the past and havent been worth it and became a real headache not even just the storm. (RAZR,ENV,Q, etc. the list goes on and on...)

HEY ROXY, CLOSE YOUR MOUTH A LITTLE I HAVE MY WHOLE ENTIRE HUMONGOUS DICK IN THERE AND ITS STILL ROOM FOR IT TO MOVE AROUND. JESUS, HOW MANY COCKS DO YOU SUCK A MINUTE? YOU SLUTY WHORE

LOL AT MY SO CALLED UNOFFICAL OFFICAL REVIEW OF THE DROID THE POST ITSELF IS NOT FUNNY IT'S GAY WITH ALL THE DOO DOO, JIZZ, AND COCK REMARKS YOU'RE A QUEER WITH A FAGBERRY STORM2 GO DO WHAT YOU DO BEST AND SUCK SUM RANDOM GUY'S DICK AND CATCH AIDS YOU FUCKING FAGGOT YOU CATCH BALLS (IN THE TIGHT END) BETTER THEN THE RECIEVERS OF THE BEARS FUCK BOY AND YOU'RE RIGHT I AM COOL AND YOU'RE GOING TO HELL FOR BEING A HERSHEY HIGHWAY PATROLMEN LOL REMEMBER SODOM AND GOMORRAH?

AntDroid,

Sodom and Gomorrah called me on my Storm 1 and 2. They said to tell you to pull the Droid out their asses... with your front teeth.

Love,

Hey, get the fuck off CrackBerry and go to DroidFuckHoles.com or where ever the fuck you Droid whores go to. Why don't all you Droid lovers go meet up in a dark alley and butt fuck and suck one another's doo doo covered peckers.

Then take pics of it with your 5 Mega Pixel camera. Don't forget to post the pics via your Droid. Give me the link cause I want to jerk off to those pics with my fagot ass.

Love,
