    I just returned my VZN Tour because I could not make or receive calls from my desk at work. Network coverage issue. My Tmobile on the hand works. Really important for me that calls are put through because I don't have a landline. Especially when the boss calls. This is clearly a network issue.

    That being said, I am use to the BB Tour and considering an 8900 Javelin. Can I expect the same functionality and performance from the Javelin?

    Will I get unlocked GPS and internet speeds that is on par with the Tour? It took about ten seconds to load a ~500KB file:

    Change the pie in the URL to shd to get DC \ NY. Very handy at picnics and baseball games:

    Any constructive comments or guidance is highly appreciated. Thank you.

    Idk about you, but tmobile coverage in my area is bad. Highest bars I got was 3. The 8900 doesn't have 3G, but it does have WiFi. I just loaded up those two gifs and both loaded under 5 seconds.. Try the 8900, if you don't like it return it then. Lol :P

    Huh that's weird well if you notice your getting better service with t-mobile than stick with the 8900 but your not going to have 3g speeds

    I'm surprised CDMA is supposed to have better wall penetration
