I purchased this for my wife to make better use of her new Storm. I was able to help her get through the first few errors in the instructions & figure out which icon or label the author really ment to refer to. After 20 pages she gave up in frustration. There are way too many instances where the instructions in the book don't match the icons or menus available on the phone, or can't be gotten to in the manner presented. Maybe by the time they print a 2nd or 3rd edition they will have had time to try out a Storm & correct all their errors.

This is a travesty on the otherwise estimable Dummies series. It contains virtually no information and reads as if it was written before the Storm actually appeared. It is basically a list of menus.

This wasn't as helpful as I thought it would be. Does have some helpful hints but those can also be found with the Blackberry handbook.

There is a ton of information available on the web, lots of forums, blogs etc. that can be used to read up the information. While all that is free, I still chose to buy this book as I'm a new blackberry (Storm) owner/user.

I keep this book by the bedside, to read over before sleeping. It has lots of information that has been of help to me. The book is not useful for an experienced BlackBerry user.

Amazon's price for this book is reasonable. I felt it was a worthwhile investment. I would not have paid the full retail price of $24.95 for this book.

Lastly, if you want similar info, and don't wish to buy this book, visit crackberry dot com or blackberryforums dot com. Both of these are top notch websites that offer a wealth of information, similarly to what this book offers. The advantage with the book : Its all put together in a nice chapter by chapter format. On the web, you'll have to dig and dig till you locate it.

This book is a good way to become familiar with the Blackberry Storm. I advise it highly. Easy reading, and easy to understand. Eliminates all of that computer jargon that's not necessary. Enjoy!

This book was very helpful. I think it is better to buy this book than the Blackberry For Dummies because there is more specific information on the Storm
