Blackberry blues

I am getting the new blackberry storm. The key word here is "GETTING." I have been anticipating it since Sep when I was told it would be released the first week of October. Finally, it was released on Friday Nov 21. Abe went at 9am to purchase the phone for me, an hour after they opened. Unfortunately, they were sold out at 8:45 (so close). The manager promised he would overnight ship it and it would be here by Monday.

I was pretty disappointed on Friday when I came home and heard it was sold out (the store was only given 10 phones). This afternoon I discovered that yet again it would not arrive today. Bummer. I don't normally have a problem waiting but when you've had a bit of a rough day and have something exciting to look forward to it, it can be very disappointing to find out it didn't work out. *Sigh* At least we ordered it right away, I guess most people who ordered it even within a few hours after us wont get it until Dec 15. At least mine is on its way from Memphis.

I'll let you know how I like it when it finally arrives (hopefully tomorrow). I'm not going to count on it again.

PS thanks for the check, Mom! It was sent the same day as my phone was by standard shipping and arrived today. So much for overnight shipping.

Bummer! People here are having the same troubles. Somehow, Brett lucked out and got his. I think his military status had something to do with it because the people in line before him were all having to order them, and Brett was only 10th in line. It's an awesome phone. You'll love it!

I have to say, I barely feel bad for you--I'm jealous you're getting one! You'll have to let me know how it is and maybe I'll take the plunge too. My phone is falling apart.

So what do you think? Was it worth the wait?
