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: Simply one of the most complete devices available on a wireless phone service. Very customizable and applications are really starting to expand over the new App World. Outstanding sure touch screen still amazes me. Occasional freezing or program delays but what new phones don't do that?
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...
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.
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.
