I've been making myself (and everyone else) crazy for the past week trying to decide on a new phone. I'm not terribly "techie", I just want to be able to access e-mail, the web and be able to text.
I'm debating between the Storm and the Curve (both of which I can get for free with my discounts). My husband has a Storm that he really likes, but the Verizon reps keep suggesting the Curve. They don't tell me why though. Maybe because they're tired of hearing complaints from folks who got "bad" Storms?
The Verizon guys have suggested an Omnia (which would cost me $100), but I had never heard of it before they mentioned it and it sounds complicated.
I'm basically trying to get as close to an IPhone as possible, without switching to ATT or waiting until 2011.

Agreed. If you want a touchscreen specifically then wait for the Storm 2 and be the envy of your partner who has the original Storm. The Storm 2 will definitely be worth the wait at this point since it's only a few months ago. Granted, you wouldn't get it free, probably have to pay around $100 for it after your discounts.
Or as also suggested the Tour is the Blackberry to own right now. Excellent, quick device with a beautiful screen and awesome keyboard.
I don't necessarily need a touch screen. I just want a fun, easy phone that has good sound quality and lets me text, check e-mail and go online.
I'm hesitant to get the Tour, since it seems like the first generation of any new electronic product always has bugs to work out. I can certainly wait a few months and get the Storm 2, if it's supposed to be that much better than the Storm. Are there supposed to be big differences between them, or is it just that they will have worked the kinks out?
