Curve or Storm?

Really torn between these two!  My mind is numb from doing research and trying to decide which to get.  The most important things for me in order are realiability, quality of calls (in and out), browsing quality and speed, and music player.

 

The Storm looks pretty cool and is 3G, but I have seen so many poor reviews that I am very anxious about getting it.

 

Music Player is important, but not crucial.  I know the storm has 8G storage installed, but how much does Curve have?

 

Any feedback you could provide this Blackberry virgin on this decision would be greatly appreciated!

I have had my Storm for almost 4 weeks and now and no problems.  Most of the problems turn out to be operator error. (too many APS open, they didn't remember to check to see they are open or closed) also you must clean the memory which are all easy to do. Some make it a habit of pulling the bat. every morning. Also you cannot store a bunch of emails as it will slow it down as well you should have a home comp., where you can save emails if necessary. Crackberry message board for Storm only has a lot of problems because they seem to download new software (Operating System) before it is ready and it can wreak havoc. I am set to keep mine unless something really bad happens. Oh excellent coverage at least where I am in Texas. Call volume seems great and no dropped calls. I especially like having the

Bluetooth, now I just leave it on my sidein it's holster, I no longer need a cradle in the car. Now if I can figure out how to program in the voice dialer. It will not recognize my sons name.

I would stay away from blackberry's completely.  I am sooo glad to be rid of my storm.  It was nice looking but everything about it sucked.  Also, if speed is an issue for you, then I would get a smartphone that has wi-fi, such as the new htc touch pro2.  None of the blackberry's through vzw have wi-fi on them.  Just trust me, 2 years is a long time to suffer with all of the problems of a blackberry.

My Storm has been reliable.  Be sure to try out the on-screen keyboard to see if you are comfortable with the feel of not having any actual keys to push.

Like anything else, it takes getting use to and also which keyboard do you want to type on, as there is a selection in the Storm, QWERTY or Suretype and I believe there is one more.
