... other than that, I'm sure its an improvement.

->> It's a phone first and at least with Verizon I can use it as a phone , as far as email and browsing while on a call that's what the iPad is for, and all the countries it does not work in, GREAT. I will actually have a peace full vacation.

->> Matthew,

I use the internet while on the phone to surf the movie times and selections while talking to my girlfriend to decide which movie to see.

It is useful, but not a frequent feature.

Glad I had AT&T ;)

->> I almost dropped the hammer on one, but I'm holding off until the 4G version comes out. I just got a Droid Incredible last August and I would have to pay full retail for one...

I bet Verizon will have some sort of incentive for current members that don't have an upgrade coming, sometime soon!!

I'll let others do the Beta Testing for me ;)

->> Yamil agreed.... AND the next version will probably have a sim slot and be 'world compatible'.

Mark I have an original Storm too.... Between the constant memory leak and the lack of apps I'm ready to bail as well.... I just think that another 6 months is worth the wait for the next iPad/iPhone release.

->> Eric, I was gonna do the same and I figured if I put up with this crap for this long. I can sure wait till the iPhone 5 comes out, but last week I was so PISSED at my phone that I threw it at my car door. Luckily my aim is way off and it didn't hit my window. I said enough is enough and went straight to Verizon. They told me to go to the site and I can order online and not have to worry about standing in line on the 10th. It came in the mail on Monday and like Phil, I can't put the thing down.

->> Matthew,

This feature comes into play more if you're using a hands-free set.

I'm just thankful I live in Canada and have the luxury of choosing my provider without switching phones. UBB madness aside...

Is that what you mean?
