First week with Blackberry Storm2

You got it right pal, I am one of the elite owners of much awaited phone Blackberry Storm2. The phone, which is not yet released in India, was released officially sometime in October last year.

The phone is super-cool. For those of us who are used to button like click sounds when pressing keypad, Storm2 is an easy transformation, RIM has come out with new technology called 'SureTouch'/'SurePress' which simply means you hear a click whenever you press on screen. Many would not like this feature by arguing that its not touch-screen, its click-screen, but its kind a cool. I wanted this phone cos' of the cool APIs RIM provides.
Cons: Little heavy, 165g. But no issues if you too are a heavy guy ;)

For those wondering how I got this, well, I bought the phone from ebay. Ebay India have a unique place called ' Global Easy Buy ' {GEB}, where in buyers can view items listed in US ebay site and pay in Indian money including all shipping and customs bill. This way you can be sure the product will reach safely without bothering about customs and excise taxes.

Being a techie, I have already done lot of experiments on the new phone including re-installation of BlackBerry OS. :)

Within a week I unlocked the phone, configured my home Wi-Fi (tried my office wi-fi but failed miserably with network admin sent out a mail saying 420 unsuccessful attempts to connect.), installed few apps like gmail app, opera, etc.

Blackberry phones are very closely tied up with your service provider to provide Data service like Edge, GPRS. Bloody these service providers, in my case Airtel, charge 900bucks for unlimited net on phone and sucking amount of 500bucks just 500KB, yes its Kilo Bytes, I verified 5times !!! Insane, isn't it ?

So to overcome this, I tried configuring Airtel Mobile office. It worked like charm. :) I am an average internet user, atleast on cell phone, so the 98 bucks 2GB plan fits my budget and I can use all apps on my phone without requiring BB Data plan.

BTW, you will BB Data plan, if at all you wanna access your company mails. Who will want to do that ? unless you are an 'executive'. I still don't understand what the fuck these execs do.

I don't wanna write any reviews on the phone, there are plenty available on net.

My personal view: I love this phone ! More posts will show why this phone is so cool and worth owning !

Amit S said...

The wireless data-plans are irrespective of any BB Phone. So they ll work on Storm2.
