Marcos I would definitely try out the storm before I went to the dare. I'm not a BB user and I haven't like one yet but of the two choices I say go with the storm.

I'd get the storm before the dare. If you don't like the dare try the blackberry curve. That dare sn't all that great.

I am looking forward to being able to play with a Bold when they come into stock at my local AT&T Store. I am however very much looking forward to the Storm as well. I love my iPhone, however I just love gadgets in general.

It better be around the $200 price to compete with the iPhone 3G or else it wont be considered an iPhone Killer if it cost $400

The BB Storm is a better phone than the Samsung Instinct, LG Dare or T-Mobile G1. And I would probably recommend it to folks who really need to use it for businesss use.

But, since the Storm has no wi-fi capability, it's a no-go for me.

I just read on engadget they were saying $99. If its $199 I am long gone from the iPhone!
only way im going to get it is if they come out with a simcard version. i know vodofone has a simcard version but will it work with an AT&T simcard? that's the only way i see myself getting a storm early. I don't wanna cough up money for early terminations with AT&T

Since I have had the iPhone no other phone has caught my eye until the BB Storm but I still can't see my self switching right now. I am still loving my 3g.

And for those of you that don't like the txt message preview, there is a way in settings to turn it off.

Where is it? I can't seem to find it.
Settings -> General -> Passcode Lock -> SMS Preview Off.
If you don't want to have the password thing on, but you want the preview off, you could just set a password to every 4 hours or something that way it hardly asks you for a password, but you still get the preview feature turned off.

I hope this gets changed in the future, because I would have never thought the passcode lock would have anything to do with SMS.

Im either going to get the Storm or the LG Dare, Right now im paying $104.69 a month with my iPhone 3G if I get Verizon with the same features and a cool phone ill be paying $76.93. Its not a tough choice to make right now.
The Verizon Data plan is just as expensive as the AT&T plan....how will it somehow cost you $28 less? Also, starting in 2009 Verizon will REQUIRE that you buy at least the $30 plan for premium PDAs (STORM).
