    You'll find a lot of reformed former Storm users now with the Droid phone. Glad you're one of them and enjoy the new phone and welcome to the best droid forum on the web!

    I think Storm owners have a special appreciation for the Droid... myself included. Probably because of the crippled device we came from :)

    We all had to go through the withdrawal of not pulling the Droid battery every 5 minutes or in our sleep too.

    I don't think I'll ever fully recover from that whole battery pull fiasco. I mean, seriously, that's a KNOWN resolution for issues? I HATED that with a passion.

    Here I am...a 50 year old fart saying "I will show you this new app on my Storm, but first...yup first I have to pull the battery"...they're like "huh, my LG 8700 doesn't do that......" Sort of embarassing. With the Droid, it's like "hey check out this new app...." and it works every time.

    My name is Rick. I switched from the Storm to Droid. Absolutely no regrets except one - The Brick Breaker game that Storm has is very addictive and was real good. Bottom line the Droid blows Storm away and I do not miss the Iphone I had before I switched to Verizon.

    I also recently switched from the storm to droid. Allow me to explain the diference between these phones. Basically the storm is like the Iphone, you do what they tell you to do. Owning the droid is the same as purchasing a PC (not a Mac) You can do whatever your imagination alows you to do :) .... Ive had blackberry phones for about 4 years and didnt have as many apps as i did the first week i purchased the droid. currently 5 home screens full working on filling the rest of my 2 home screens :icon_ banana:

    Former Storm owner myself. I can't truthfully bad mouth the Storm. (OK I can ) It did it's job and I'd gotten used to it. Checked out the Droid, did a little research and here we all are. We can appreciate this by looking back to where we came from. I'm pretty sure we all could have had a IPhone. Most of us choose not to go that route. So welcome, and we've got your back.

    I've been a berry user for years... and I got a lot of mileage out of my old Storm.. not that I didn't want to chuck it against the wall sometimes.. but now that I've had the droid for a few weeks it easy to recognize this is simply superior technology. I'm very very pleased with the functionality.
