I bought the original Storm the day that they came out and I'm still using it today. My contract with Verizon has been up for a while now and I'd really like to upgrade to a newer technology. Discussions were that a new BB would be out about now which of course is not the case. Now I'm hearing that a new interim Storm is coming sometime early next year and a bigger upgrade (4G) later next year. I'm getting fed up waiting and am now ready to bite the bullet and switch to AT&T to get the new BB or go to Droid or the new Windows platform. Shame on Verizon and BB for being so slow to bring out new technologies that their customers demand and competitors respond to. I thought that they would be better than this.
