Buy now or Buy later???

I am planning to purchase a Storm, but able to limp along on current device so can wait a few weeks or a month.  Are there any updates/model revisions on the horizon that I should wait for to eliminate current issues.  We are with Verizon.

Re: Buy now or Buy later???

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!



I'm sorry, but there really is no way to receive accurate comment about what might come about in the future. There is always new technology on the horizon, but when it will come? Well, one crystal ball is just as good as another -- and neither of them will be correct. It's all about personal choice -- if there is a device that is adequate enough for your needs now, then by all means get it. If some of the devices that are rumored seem to be better, then you have to choose if it's ok to wait or not -- but no one can accurately tell you when such rumored devices will be in the market. The good news with VZW is the New Every 2 program...2 years is really not that long a time.

Occam's Razor nearly always applies when troubleshooting technology issues!

Google new Storm & iPhone for 2009 and you can see for yourself that both are bring out new phones this year.  Can't wait to get rid of my Storm and get a new iPhone!

Re: Buy now or Buy later???

There has been no promise that Verizon will get a new Storm this year.


As a matter of fact the only confirmation of a new Storm model has been to a European carrier, the Q4 of 09, or Q1 of 2010. And Verizon was not mentioned at all in that.
