I am so anger at Storm and Verizon

I am so **bleep** as the storm really sucks. It should be a great PDA but it ii slow, locks up. Won't keep more than about 100 emails due to memory issues???

There are so many good units out there but Verizon won't bring them in. The I phone is so superior that RIM looks like a high school project.

If any other carrier could provide the coverage that Verizon does I would switch in a heartbeat, even gladly pay the early fee.

I am so feed up with how much better the I phone is over the storm,

What is wrong with Verizon. {keep it courteous}

Just needed to vent but ya I am going to leave and go with the I phone.

Do you want any help first or are you determined to go? I have Storm and no problems.

Hey there,

Sorry you are having problems.  If you regularly delete your email from your Storm, you should not have lock ups.  Rebooting the device every couple of days helps to free up some built up memory issues too. 

The Iphone is a great device, I'm sure.  I don't own either the Storm or the Iphone, but I don't think they were designed to be replicas of each other.  They each have their unique differences.  For now, try my suggestion from above and delete some email and see if your performance gets better.

Pardon my ignorance if you are still out there why would you want to keep your email on a hand held device? Most if not all eliminate them and any they need to save, would be done on home Comp. or Laptop. I am sure that is what is causing your problems.

I am on the road most of the time. My customer jobs last about 4 to 8 weeks ave. I need to comunicate with my customers and to have the emails releated to the job is a great benifit. My storm deletes them after about 10 days. I have talked to RIM support over 8 hours. They even sent me a new phone. I have only one application that did not come already installed and that is "shortcovers" an e-book reader. My free memory is wide open acording to the techs and they do not know why my storm only saves 10 days.

Funny Rim specs say the storm will save 65,000 messages. Yes that is 65 thousand.  Mine stores about 300.

I have gone over every setting there is wih techs from Verizon and RIM including upper level techs. I have tried blackberry forum but nothing has worked other than to convince me that the storm is not that good of a pda

My Storm has a setting you can set for how long to keep emails. I will try and find where it was I set mine, and get back to you.

I have set all the settings. Save mail for 3 months. Wireless Reconcile - off, In outlook I have to leave on server for 3 months. I have 2 email accounts and 1 text message. Each will hold approx 100 messages. From there when something new comes in, it deletes the oldest one. Has anyone checked to see how many emails there storm has.

Maybe you have this setting, but under general options, last item is Keep Messages Days up to 6 Months or Forever if you want that.  Under Actions, which is  under General Options, they should all read: YES. My Wireless Reconcile - is set to ON where yours is set to off I have no idea if that makes a diff.?

You didn't mention On Conflicts, which is right under Wireless Reconcile, I have " Mailbox Wins" 

I hope this helps you. Change under  General Options, Then Actions, Keep Messages for" Forever"  be sure to use back up key and click SAVE. Then I would close everything, turn off Storm using red phone Button, pull bat. and then re install bat. and wait until timer goes completely away, maybe be 10 or 15 minutes. If timer doesn't show right away press the red phone (OFF) button again and it should start up. Let timer run until it is gone.

I will give it a go (again) but I have done all of this before. Nothing seems to work. Rim told a little fib when they said it will hold 65,000 messages.

How many emails do you have?

If you hold the phone in portrait posistion, open email, show keyboard, the cv key goes to the last email, the er key goes to first email, When at last email the jk key goes up one day at a time (this is if you have SureTyhpe keyboard enabled)

I have no idea how many emails mine will hold, because as fast as I read them, I delete them. I don't like the suretype I use the Qwerty keyboard.
