    Default Who will be upgrading from TOUR to TOUR2?

    Upgrading from a TOUR to TOUR2 worth it to you?

    The TOUR has not even be out a year and it is said that the TOUR2 will be released for sprint and Verizon in the month of February.

    Just putting up a pole to see who either will be buying out the phone outright or using an upgrade from another line to get the TOUR2 ... in your eyes is the TOUR2 upgrade worth it from the TOUR?

    Me personally ... THE OS 5.0 will be officially released for the tour at the time or soon after the TOUR2 is released ... and if not version .419 is working great for me. SO OS is not a real issue to me to upgrade.

    The trackpad vs trackball .... I know i have had issues with my trackball for some time now ... well since i have received the phone but the last replacement that i have received has seem to be working great. I haven't had to much play time with a trackpad as of yet to determine if it is indeed better then the ball. I will have to go play more with them in the store.

    The one big benefit definitely is the WiFi !!
    I am not sure if that crappy browser will move any quicker with the WiFi but i would sure hope so.

    If anyone else is aware of any other perks that the tour2 has over the tour .. please POST. Maybe they could of upgraded the processor or the internal memory ... not sure why they wouldn't on an upgrade.

    I think the hardware size between the two is identical.


    For me right now ... I would say NO .. not going to upgrade ... the benefits are not worth my upgrade or for me to pay straight out for the phone.
    What i am going to try and see is if account services will swap out my tour for the tour2 .. being that i have had it replaced 4 times ... for multiple hardware issues. Time will tell ??????

    I will only upgrade if the memory has the 2Gig like the S2. Even then, I may wait for a price drop or two.
    I am very happy with my T1, I haven't had any of the little issues other Tour owners have experienced.

    the Essex TOUR2 is said to have 2 GB of internal Memory????????...

    TOUR & Essex have flash memory of 256 MB. but the Essex has an additional 2GB of device memory for storage of additional info .. i dont think u can add apps and games and so forth to it ... it is basically only stuff that i can save to card ... like pictures and ringers/etc can now be added to device on that 2gb of memory which is not a big deal .. everyone these days has SD cards....
    Found info here:

    i'm not upgrading right away from my Tour. i'm happy with it for the most part. i would like an official OS 5 upgrade to fix the 552 errors and some other minor bugs.

    i'll get the Tour 2 after it's been out a year. That way the bugs will be worked out. Hardware issues addressed. It will be cheaper and i'll be eligible for my new every two.

    i've learned from the Tour that i don't want to get a BlackBerry that's just been released. i don't like the stress of discovering bugs and issues.

    That's one thing i miss about my 8330. By the time i got that it was really reliable.

    Device memory basically serves the same purpose as the microsd card, so you can put song, videos, pictures, etc on it. But you can't install apps on it.

    Probably not I haven't really been having all the problems that a lot of the other tour owners have been having and I don't want to sign in for 2 years when more bb's are on the way, yes the tour 2 has wifi and a trackpad but I can wait for that

    Even though I'd like a trackpad, WIFI on onboard memory are not enough for me to upgrade to Tour 2 at this moment.

    You need to add another category. I will be upgrading from my 8130 to the T2. I have been waiting to upgrade until it comes out. Might as well wait for it at this point.

    Nope, I won't be upgrading to Tour2,once OS5 comes out this BB will be perfect! This one suits me fine and I had very little issues with it. I will wait until I'm due for an upgrade next year.

    Toneberry On the 3rd replacement, Verizon should had offered you a different model completely. On the 3rd replacement they are suppose to do this. So, you have every right then the Essex is released to ask for it. Since you have had 4 replacements, you are entitled to this. I sold wireless for over 3 years and this is policy. So, when it is released you can get it without a hitch. It may though act as your upgrade. I have had two and after the 3rd if there is one, I can also ask. But I haven't had any problems with this 2nd device.
    I have played with other models that have a trackpad and it is nice. I really love my Tour and the current OS is also not an issue for me. I really think the kinks are out of it. I haven't had any problems. I am looking forward to seeing it though.

    I have my internet line that I could get it on but don't know. And I also doubt I will upgrade. I had to replace my USB because it finally went "dust" on me and quit working. I also have unlimited wireless internet and I am told if I upgrade I might possibly lose the plan I have. I like having unlimited and so I am in no need of it. Verizon is getting 4G later this yr and I can pay outright for it if I want it bad enough. But I may decide to get the Essex on it instead. Still thinking about it. Not concrete on my decision. I don't have problems and if the 5.0 OS is released well then everything will be even more perfect !

    I'm with the others on this. I don't think that wifi and a trackpad are enough to justify using my upgrade this March ( I just replaced my curve 8330 with a Tour I got brand new from ebay and 5.0.0.419 works really well). I am actually hoping for sprint to release a nexus 1 like device so I can have a full touchscreen phone in addition to my bb. Better still, I hope that a more advanced bb will be released by sprint by the end of the year (I can dream)

    While there are some wonderful changes to the Tour 2.. Unless your contract is up.. (Which it probably isn't if you bought a Tour 2..) then its not worth paying the $500 bucks or whatnot for it. the only different is memory a trackpad and wi-fi. but its deffinetly not worth $500 though most people have had many problems with their Tours and i looked into it(Verizon Customers) and if you have any phone in the stores replaced at least 3 times within 3 months then you are eligible to the next or newest phone in that series or anything similar so you could try that also..

    Default Tour2?

    Forgive for being a newbie...In fact I just bought a Tour. I would upgrade 2 morrow if Tour2 came out. However, no one at Verizon or Blackberry I talked to even knows what essex is. I guess I didn't talk to the right people. My prediction is 6 months to a year we will see it. Seriously, may I ask why WiFi is important?

    kinda the same here. i just activated my tour yesterday (just quit my uscc job so i had to turn in my company-owned curve and buy a new phone). i thought about waiting until the t2 dropped for uscc, but that could be six months from now. when it didn't show up on the 2010 q1 rebate sheet, the deal was sealed for me. that, and i'm getting my tour for $80 after mir with a contract renewal. can't beat that price!

    by the time i'm eligible for a new phone in july 2011, there will be something else that's bigger and better anyways.

    I bought my tour in October on ebay so I could use my upgrade for the Tour2 when it gets released. I will probably wait for a price drop or two.
