    I miss the keyboard. But that is about it.

    We use a BES with Lotus Notes and my users are still on that. We are now testing with GMail Enterprise. A pretty good deal $50 per user per year with 25GB per user. I use Gmail Enterprise with my Droid and LOVE IT.

    I just worry about the paradigm shift from Lotus Notes Client based e-mail to the Gmail model for my technology challenged users.

    I can't miss my BB Storm... I still have it (Damn Electronic leash from work)...

    My Droid is replacing the LG Chocolate 3 personal phone. The storm is company provided.

    One thing I will say about BB OS 5, since I just put it on the Storm, it fixed one annoying thing that I found with Storm, the radio not turning on with the Auto On/Off feature enabled and it separated the Desktop (BES) email from the other E-mail, IE: Not use just Messages for Desktop E-mail now.

    Well other than the hourglass rotating and the fun of pulling the battery and checking the app memory, I actually will miss BBmessenger and the email push while my local computer is open,

    The DROID has more "promise" - but it still lacks a couple of things that the BB did (does?) well:
    1. Sure Type <-- I really miss this! ... and have not found an equitable replacement for it yet.
    2. E-mail handling was more configurable:
    a) "delete all"
    b) "selectable deletion"
    c) "Long press on name or subject to search for all e-mails from that sender or subject.
    d) Once e-mail was deleted - it stayed deleted (I still get deleted e-amils appearing - again - in my in-box!!)
    3. Phone options - Configurable vibrate (short. medium. long. and # of each)

    All of the above are minor nuisances - but still things that I was using daily - so not having them means that I *miss* having them. As new updates and more apps are released, I am hopeful that these (and more) issues will be addressed.

    Would I go back? No.

    lol no I do not!

    Had a blackberry pearl which as you know you have to have a data plan... Surfing the web on that was like dial-up compared to a Droid.

    Loving the switch so far.

    NOPE!!!!! Hey whats blackberry? Oh is it one of the phones you need to wait 5-8 min to boot up to make a emergency call, or that wont work with 10percent battery saying radio too low for radio use. I had one but its now a paperweight and if needbe will be a wheel chock for my 80,000lb rig

    I had the Storm for almost a year. I fought it night and day until their last software update. Once I had the update, way too late, I was over it. SLOW. Difficult pulling up names/numbers/dialing quickly. SLOW. Limited apps.

    DROID - FAST, easy to pull up names/numbers and make phone calls. It was also tested and proven before released to market. FAST. Many apps, changes daily.
