Did anyone hate it at first then start to love it?
I didn't "get" it right away, but now 3 months later, I really like it.
My old LG was no longer charging when the charger was plugged... it had to be held a certain way & was driving me bananas. My new-every-two was in effect just at the end of last year & I thought "why not?" I never have the "newest" thing, so I upgraded to the storm online. It took 3 weeks (backordered) for it to arrive.
When it came, I was optimistic, and then rueful... and frustrated! I knew where everything was on my old cell, and learning it all over on the blackberry was sooo confusing. I wound up watching all the little "training" videos I could and actually reading the user's guide.
It took me a couple weeks before i was comfortable with the click screen & no buttons, but I like 'em fine now. I really do like the "click" because i like the tactile feedback.
Hang in there, it gets easier!!
