    I do. It sure made a great paper weight. :D

    Honestly tho.....not even a little bit. I wish I would have jumped to android much sooner than I did. I was missing out terribly.

    Oh......I also miss that painfully slow lil' blue bar in the bottom of the screen when you enter the browser. :p

    I miss the BIS hotmail delivery. I hate deleting in 2 places. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix that?

    No..not at all...since I'm back to using it (my X died 3 days after I received it - have to wait for the 29th [hopefully] for the new one).

    Seriously though, the only thing I miss is the ability to customize the flashing LED for various notification types. I really did like that.

    This is probably not a good time for me to answer this because I have just spent two hours trying to get some pictures and some music over on my X, and finally gave up. I think I've messed up my memory card, it's not recognized. I know just enough to screw things up. Now, to be fair, I never did try to put pictures and music on my BB.

    But I do miss it a smidgen. I miss picking it up and seeing all my emails and texts all in an instant, ready for me to read and delete from phone or server or however I wanted to delete it from. On the X, I scroll through screens trying to remember where I put K-9, and then scroll through some more trying to remember where I put the text app.

    I know I will get better at all this, and I love all it's possiblities, it's just right now it's winning in the battle of Droid X vs Me. But eventually, I will win.

    The only thing I miss is Texas hold'em 2, those sorry excuses in the android marketplace aren't providing an adequate fix. Other then that, I don't miss a thing.

    Not at all. I did have better battery life with the Storm but that isn't enough to keep me with blackberry. I'll just have a charger available

    I've been using Blackberries since the b&w units years ago. Put my Storm out to pasture when I strolled into the local Verizon store on X launch day. Originally went in to possibly get a new Storm 2, but was talked into the X instead. Not sure I'm in love yet. I'd really like to synch up with Outlook on my laptop. Besides that, the X has lots of interesting bells and whistles.

    BTW, all the hopeful revenue stream apps are tiresome to have on the phone without being able to dump them.

    For those missing LED notification, get handcent that should help a bit.

    To answer the question, no not at all.

    The only thing I miss is BerryBuzz and BBM. I've heard that MissedCall does the trick, but I've also heard that it's not updated and completely working for DX. I have GTalk, but a few of my friends on BBM have yet to make the switch. But otherwise, I'm happy I made the platform switch. I love customization.

    I don't miss BLACKBERRY. But I miss some things about it.

    Such as:
    Special LED notifications.
    Blackberry Messenger... (big one).

    That's kind of really it.

    Not at all. Actually I broke my storm 1 in half the other day because the screen stopped responding. ill see if I can get some pics of it. Now I have to deal with this samsung POS flip phone till my X comes.

    The ONLY things I miss are the AMAZING BB keyboard and BBM.
    But I miss them a LOT. I actually bought a Curve 8330 to use off and on when I get sick of Android. Then I'll switch back whenever I want...

    I miss BBM, and the freedom of the email service - I was also one the nuts that honestly enjoyed surepress, I hate physical keyboards & I'm new to full touchscreen. The X blows me away though, never thought I would ever have a phone like this, or phones would ever even get to this point but if there was a Storm 3, which surpassed the 2 by at least 3 times then I would still be fighting with RIM right about now.
