I stood in line to get the Storm, it was obvious from the start that there would be a learning curve, I have always used Palm devices. Once the first software upgrade came out, a lot of issues went away. Being that this is a highly software driven device, I don't see any reason it will not get better and better.
Mine works fine and I have tried a lot of software applications on it already. I believe it is a fairly stable product and being such, I am most interested in software, accessories, tips and tricks and software updates.
I look at this web site day after day and see a lot of threats of returns and general whining. If you don't like the product, return it but let the rest of us share useful information to improve our user experience.

Nice post Stephen, and a good point.
Likewise, mine is working well.
Users who need help troubleshooting their issues, this is a great place to find what you need. And yes, the noise of those who don't like the device has been loud, but no louder that I have seen than from those who are enjoying it. And neither of those represent the masses who never venture to a Support Forum.

Amen my storm brother! My phone works fine and i just put in os .83 the other day and its even better! People need to remember that with any new - cutting edge device, there is always bugs. The only way to deal with these bugs is for people to test out the new OS's as they come out.
So I agree big time with you, people need to calm down and start dealing with it! The "perfect" iphone has had its issues too! No remembers that!

As with any product you either love it or you hate it. With the Storm there seems to be a middle ground where people are undecided. I was one of them. My 30 day trial period ends tomorrow. A few minor issues remain but I believe this phone will continue to improve with updates. Hopefully the .83 will be out officially soon or some other update.
This is the first forum I have joined regarding BB products and this is my 3rd BB. I agree with the fact that complaining about the product does not resolve issues. If one is so dissatisfied with a product you return it and find an acceptable alternative.
Many posts in this forum are informative and allow for a good exchange of ideas, tips, etc. The whining and complaining offers no value.
If you don't like it... send it back and return to your acceptable alternatives. I too thought stepping back would be a wise choice but have decided that the pro's out weight the con's. Updates will improve the functions of the Storm... if the perception in the market place was this was going to be a perfect product right out of the shoot... guess what - reality check needed. We are all guinea pigs due to our desire to be the first on the block with the Storm... suck it up and accept it or move on.
Let's use the forum for its intended purpose... to help fellow Storm users and share information!!!
