Summary: I bought this blackberry storm 9500 about two months ago. The device is very nice and cheap. Its a touch phone which is good. I rated this phone to 4 for two reasons which are not a defect from the factory.
Summary: I tworks just well, but sometimes it just thinks too much, I don't know why, looks like a computer with memory full, but I swear I don't have that much data on my phone.. Has been fixed restarting it. Hope keeps working 'cause I really liked everything on it! Oh, and it comes with "vodafone" logo...
Summary: "The blackberry storm is a lovely looking bit of kit. I have however struggled with the battery life which can drain very quickly. Also I discovered that the case can catch the bottom buttons and pull them off which is quite annoying.
Summary: I've now come to the conclusion that everybody who wrote reviews on the phone spent about five minutes with the device. Part of me doesn't blame them. If I reviewed electronics for a living, I wouldn't want to spend several days really testing the phone.
I compared Apple iPhone 3Gs and Android phones to Blackberry Storm 1 & Storm 2

Summary: May 4, 2010 I have a love-hate relationship with my Verizon Blackberry Storm 1. In April 2010, I bought and returned an iPhone from AT&T and a Sprint Google Android phone from Samsung. I also tried out the BlackBerry Storm 2. My story unfolds...
Excerpt: Wow, where to start? Yes, there are problems with this phone, but overall I like it. The screen is easily seen in bright daylight. I like the fact that you light a key before pressing it to type as I tried the iphone and went nuts trying to type on it.
Pros: Awesome screen. Great email delivery. Can be easily seen in bright sunlight. Good web service for the most part although some features the phone can't handle.
Cons: Battery life, keep a charger close. Changing between speaker phone and handset by itself on low battery. The camera. Redialing a call. Since it's new, forget getting help from Verizon as they haven't figured the phone out yet.
