My Storm 2 is OK but I am looking for a new phone and tired of waiting for RIM and I want to stay with Verizon. I like the Iphone but I need a global phone and that ain't happening yet. My next choice might be the Thunderbolt. I have some questions- I did a search on the main one and didn't find anything. I use gmail and aol email. I know the gmail come through the Andriod quickly. What happens when I set up my aol mail. Will I not get notified when I have an email. I know Driod does not "push" the aol emails but what does happen? I did check out k-9 Mail. I loaded it on my wife's Driod, set up my aol email, and I got the email right away. Looks like a good option for me. I am just wondering what other options are out there or what the phone does on it's own. I think there is no spped dial/ Is that a work around for that? I did see that the Thunderbolt was going to be a global phone. On my BB Storm I have the app called Tether. It works great and saves money. I was surprised that it even works in Europe and no additional charges if you are on the prorated Europe plan. I think the app is also available on Driod. Anybody use it? Any other downsides coming from the Storm? TIA.
