Excerpt: The greatest success of Iphone did trouble Research in motion Blackberry. They introduce their first touch screen handset named Blackberry 9500 storm. It is considered as Iphone killer. I was waiting to get this phone provided by vodafone in india.
Summary: This phone is probably the worst BB smartphone. It is difficult to type since the tactile screen requires that it be pushed to "click" so writing emails and messages on it is very slow and tedious. The screen finally ended being damaged as a part of it stopped working altogether.
Summary: The touch screen is a little shaky and beware.... has no WiFi. Overall a good product that comes in a sealed box. Customer service is pretty good and helpful. Would have returned but was a gift to my son in Trinidad.
Summary: First of all, the purchase I made was NOT for merchandise but for a service. I bought a code to "unlock" the GSM side of my Verizon Blackberry 9930 so it can now be used with any SIM card from any country in the world. Verizon purposely locks the GSM side of all the CDMA/GSM type phones they sell for use only with Vodaphone. So when you travel outside the US, you're forced to use Vodaphone.
Summary: This is a bad phone the touch screen malfunctions. Begun with 0 number not functioning then progressed to the entire screen not responding.Only after 3 months of use. Please do not make the same mistake that I made. I wished I was pre- warned.
Summary: Design Somewhere between the aesthetics of the BlackBerry Bold and the iPhone 3G you'll find the chic BlackBerry Storm. The large, colourful screen lends itself to comparison with Apple's wunderkind, but the details of the design are undeniably BlackBerry. The Storm is sexy: a combination of glossy piano-black and stainless steel line the display, with a faux brushed metal matte-black plastic battery cover.
