true but if you make an insurance claim, as long as the old is gone, they will give you the new.

just read VZ' data plan disclamer

Hmmm Verizon huh, i might move back to Verizon. a lot of people dislike the service, but from my experience moving from Verizon to Cingular (now AT&T) I've been getting dropped calls like crazy (the least drop calls my ass). To think about it I only had a few drop calls with Verizon through my three years with them, and thats under long tunnels. With Cingular I get at least two drop calls a day (Literally). The BlackBerry storm may be my next phone however I am going to wait for all the first-release batch to clear so they can fix any existing error.

What are the hardware differences between the Storm and Bold? Which one's better? Does one have something the other doesn't (and is it crucial enough to be a decision-maker)?

Many differences...
Among obvious -- touch screen vs. keys, bold has the WiFi...

Bold all the way...

Data plans from Verizon are almost as expensive as the line price it self. Will be using my Verizon Motorola Q for now.

I have the Family Plan, 700Min, 3 Lines, $10 Text Messaging, Video Messaging, Audio Messagin ( Unlimited Verizon to Verizon and 500 To Other Companies) = $83. If the data plan was $10 I would had gotten it.

I got a coupon from Verizon for 2 free months of usage, if i extend my plan with them. That sounds like a $250 deal
