Last November I ordered the new Blackberry Storm, eager to try the new phone. It was my first Blackberry and was serviced by Verizon so I was excited and got one of the first ones out the door. Months later I discovered that it was not all that I had hoped it to be. It was loaded with aggrevating problems.
The first problems that showed up was the fact that when I talked on the phone my face was always pushing the mute or the speaker phone. Very annoying. I found an app and installed it and that problem was solved. Later the phone started locking up and I couldn’t answer it because it was wasn’t listening to me. Lately my voice messages were not being delivered, the texting was difficult due to the touch screen and no one could hear me. They said I was breaking up a lot. Lastly, when turning the phone to change the horizontal to vertical view, it was really really slow. That’s it… this phone had to go.
So, off to the Verizon store I went and set the phone down and said I want to see a Blackberry Curve. The guy didn’t even blink, he knew there were issues with the phone. He said there was a new Blackberry called the Tour, it was better than the Curve and was a global smartphone just like the Storm. So he showed it to me and I liked it. He got me a good deal and within the hour all my information was transferred. So far I love everything about the Tour, I get my messages, people can hear me and no locking up. Texting is much easier and I don’t miss the touch screen at all. I think we got a winner folks.
