am using storm2 since last 3 months
I like it all except that keyboard typing is little confusing. Since it is touchscreen, fast typing is what confusing as when press a particular letter and unless the finger is exactly on top of the letter, it will get printed another letter. Otherwise the device is good.

Have used both. Love both the devices. But chances are if you dont like 1, you wont like 2 either. In case of the storm, people either love it or hate it. Seems like you are in the latter.

In terms of difference between the two, you will be hardpressed to find any, but the ones that are there, im listing below:
- Look identical (few obvious tweaks here & there but a layman will not be able to make out any difference)
- Storm 2 also has Wifi
- The clickscreen in the Storm 2 has been improved upon but not to that extent that it warrants an upgrade from the Storm 1.

Apart from the above listed points, you can say they are clones. Some even say the Storm 2 is the actual Storm & the Storm 1 was actually the prototype to fix niggles. Both have 3G, the same camera & are even running the same firmware on the OS now. So for what its worth, software wise, they are twins.

Need a little help here. Tried to search here on Team-BHP but couldnt get anything. I am looking to get a PDF viewer for my Bold 9000 but the only thing I am able to come up with is the Repli go and the Beam Reader both of which are paid software. Any one here can help me with a free PDF viewer? Thanks in advance.

I upgraded to Documents to Go(Docs2Go) and PDF to o came standard with that. However I vague remember that before I purchased Docs2Go I could easily read PDF files on Curve 8520

This started happening last time I installed the desktop os (about 10 days back when I bought the BB) and then after I uninstalled the BB Desktop s/w the Windows XP worked fine for a week.

What should be done??
Any help info would be greatly appreciated.
I finally gave in and reloaded Windows XP yesterday and the first program I loaded was the Desktop Manager DM for BB the latest version v 5.0.1
I installed the DM along with the Roxio Media Manager RMM and after a reboot it started giving me an error to load the UM.MSI file. So after searching I appended the DM and removed the RMM.
So since yesterday evening the DM is working fantastically on Windows XP and today I've created a system restore point incase anything goes bad I have something to fall back on
Cheers

I can read pdf files as an email attachment. But cant read them if downloaded to my memory card. This is guess is pretty standard and its only a problem if you try to read pdfs off your memory card. The Repli Go is a nifty little program, but $15 just to read pdfs is daylight robbery. So wanted to know if there is some free pdf reader out there.

This website gives a chance to pre order the BB.
Hope it comes out real soon.

Default Banned ????

Hello BB users, I came across an article in the HINDU yesterday that BB's will be banned if RIM didnt comply with security concerns the govt had regarding encryption?

do you guys think that the Ban would take place?

@johnda: i doubt it. There was a news item on the box that BB will not be banned. Our babus are hooked onto BB so a lot of noise and no action.

You join us who are using 'Crackberries' - they do everything except BIS, BES and MMS and stop worrying about the ban. They can ban BIS/BES that is all.

RIM has complied with "security concerns" a long time ago. I'm on Vodafone, so can only talk about the same, but ever noticed why SSL websites/services don't work on Blackberry Internet? I've talked to Vodafone people and they say that they won't be enabling SSL anytime soon. They're already looking through your browsing habits as I type this.

guys any idea on what to do about a miserable battery life on a 8520. It is 3 months old and the battery barely lasts me for 6-8 hours (2 major phone calls) on regular bb usage. one has to charge twice each day. As the novelty wore off, i have started noticing these problems which were not there on my earlier brick 7900.

SSL sites dont open on the blackberry browser true but they do on a 3rd party browser like the Bolt

wonder how RIM is going to react to the proposed shutdown of berry services from October in the UAE.
