    Yea, I'm kind of interested in this as well.
    I will need to hold onto the BB till after my EU trip, (since the INC doesn't have International capabilities unfortunately) but I would like to possible get rid of it afterwards.

    giving it to a guy at work, he said he wanted something in the interim before he moves to a newer smartphone...just seeing if it's worth the extra $$$ for him..

    I will be a Storm1 convert come Thursday or even tomorrow if I'm lucky. I am so ready to lose the clunky Blackberry interface!

    Mine has mysteriously upped the need for battery pulls since I pre-ordered the Incredible...like it can sense its pending demise tomorrow.

    Another one here. About a year and a half ago I was torn between the Storm 1 and the G1. I choose poorly. Hopefully the DInc will make up for that decision.

    I was really pumped when the Storm came out. Got it on launch day, replaced my broken Moto Q 9m (WM). The reviews were terrible, but I had glossy eyes for it and needed a phone. It did it's job as the only touchscreen smartphone worth owning at the time on Verizon.

    Now I only have about 48 hours left with it. OH. THE. JOY.

    Mine's been even more laggy than normal since I preordered. Hell it wasn't even answering some calls. Then today when I tried to take pics of the Inc, it really had problems. It totally knew it was being replaced.

    Have a Strom 1 until next week when I get my Incredible. Honestly I never had a problem with my Storm and it has served me very well, it's just way too boring for me now. I have like 3 or 4 apps installed and only have ~15MB of storage. What can I do with that? The only plus side of having no memory is the fact that there are no good apps that interest me to install, so it's a non-issue.

    Has yours started barking at you while in mid-call and then resetting??? Mine has been doing that since before I decided to pre-order

    My first post here...

    Figured it would be best served denouncing the BB Storm.

    Set to convert on the 29th.

    I originally was going to sell to recoup some loss from buying teh DI at full price. (yes I hated teh Storm 2 that much)... But after talking to several people here. I am now going to take my Storm 2 and introduce it to my 12g Remington. I'll video it and put it on youtube for all Storm haters to see :) ... sometimes, money just isn't worth it when I would rather have my way.

    I also got my BB storm on launch day, hated it from day 1. Fedex just delivered my Incredible, happy days now. Will give my Storm to my 2yr old for video use.

    Got my BB Storm on launch day as well...loved it for a minute, hated it ever since. Here are just SOME of the many reasons I DETEST my Storm:
    1) Daily battery pulls (sometimes 2-3 times a day) because it would freeze
    2) HORRIBLE app memory (Seriously...I am now down to 6 apps, and I STILL get messages saying, "Application memory low...please select applications to delete"
    3) Touchscreen SUCKS!

    I don't even know if I want to attempt to sell it. Sure, I could use the extra few dollars, but the joy I get from lighting it on fire or sticking it underneath my car tires might be more rewarding than a few extra dollars!

    Same here brotha.

    While I would love to donate mine to military phone groups or abuse groups that take in phones, it would be abuse to give them my POS BBS1. I am going to take pride in smashing the crap out of it with a hammer ... of course, while filming the destruction of it. :)

    Dude...EXCELLENT point! It would be cruel to give (or sell) this piece of crap to anyone...especially military groups, senior groups, or centers for people who have suffered abuse, etc. Just look at it this way: We're doing these people a favor by smashing the hell out of these things! (And by the way, I expect you to post videos...or at least the links to your videos...of your BBS destruction!)
