Who uses a blackberry or the new storm?

my 8703e kept turning off every winter storm we had this season due to moisture inside i guess. It finally now wont turn on the screen, got rained on for a couple minutes :/ Verizon wants to get me a BB storm, but has anyone else used these yet? Im REALLY worried with how many times my BB has dropped, got knocked around, fell out of the holster etc on the jobsite that the FULL touchscreen storm will be dead in a month or two. My other BB lasted over 2 years now.

My verizon boulder is coming in today. It is a mil-spec phone that is dust, shock and waterproof.

Only problem is it is just a flip, not a pda style phone. You may be able to pick up email and stuff on it though.

I just got the Blackberry Curve a couple weeks ago...F'n love this phone. I was going to get the Storm, but I have some friends who work for verizon and said it still has some bugs that need to be worked out.

Wow, those are cool man! i guess after seeing those i realize im not THAT rough on my phones lol, they do last 2 years without a case even And $49.99 plus shipping is steep just for a case for my blackberry. I just replaced the one with a much newer replacement so all is good again. I have two BB 8703s from verizon, 2 LG vx8300s or something that are both 2yrs old+ now and a BB curve for the g/f . The curve i think is just too small, the storm is all screen so i like my 8703s.

I got mine on ebay brand new for about $30. It's worth it...it's very tough, ater resistant...I've dropped it several times and it doesn't even bring the screen out from hibernation.
