Summary: "Within 8 days of it's launch I had collected mu third, yes third storm from my local showroom. the first one started to fall apart, the second one didn't have all the advertised features. For the price of this phone, you would have expected them to iron out all the kinks before it's release on an unsuspecting market. If you are lucky enough to get a fully functional model in one piece,it may still take quite awhile to get used to the touch screen's eccentricities .
Excerpt: The weird thing too is that I’ve never had that problem with one of my cheaper phones. I would listen to my music on and off for up to three days and still not have to charge the phone. On the other hand the Blackberry would be dead by the end of the first day. I would definitely not recommend this smartphone to people, as I believe that there are better quality devices around with better features.
Excerpt: I was really excited about getting the Blackberry Storm when it first came out, and although I have had it for almost a year now, it's really not that great of a phone. The first one I had worked well for a couple of weeks and then the screen stopped clicking as efficiently, and eventually started freezing every single time I pressed it.
Excerpt: This was my first 'big girl' phone. I loved it, hated it, and have settled upon liking it. Internet is slow, entering text is obnoxious, but I still prefer it to not having a phone with internet access. It's weirdly connected to my facebook and has been able to accurately match phonebook contacts to facebook friends photos...without me telling it to.

Excerpt: OK....GREAT concept. Functionality is awesome. But the blackberry curse of the dreaded timer in the middle while freezing is killing me. It freezes more than any other blackberry i have had. My phone has actually made other people who see me struggle with it deter from buying it. Im a faithful blackberry user so eventually i will upgrade to the Blackberry Storm 2.
Summary: The phone is not original and some features like Bluetooth and phone connection with the computer not working properly. The headset does not work and it is not original. Besides the manual, battery and casing back are awful. I would never buy another product from this seller.
