    I'm still on my first Tour. The forum definitely gets you paranoid...after reading all the complaints about the trackball and OS lag i would question everything and it drove me crazy for the first month... i have very little movement and the trackball works fine, it's not as smooth as i would like but no issues or freezing....

    Wait for the official OS update my friend, it should improve your trackball lag or any problems for you, according to people who are running the leak and hybrid OS.

    Exactly. And most people dont come here to say "Oh my blackberry is perfect" because there isnt much point. Other then reassurance which is why I created this thread. Most people are here to ask questions about problems, which makes it seems like the device has nothing BUT problems. And thats just not accurate.

    Maybe Im just lucky. Manufacture date is July 17th I believe, made in Mexico, not green dot. Trackball has always been perfect. Even on 20 horizontal, its slow but functions 100% fine. Also, no OS lag, no screen ripple, slight, and I mean SLIGHT jiggle to the battery door which I worked around with the tape trick (Im getting the Seidio 2600 so it wont matter anyways). Also no creak on the plastic earpiece, and thats even with taking it off and taking my phone apart twice, and still it seems to have great build quality.


    Am I one of the few lucky ones, or should I worry for future problems? Im about 2 weeks into owning it, and I absolutely love it. Its my first BB, coming from the LG Voyager on Verizon. Only problems Ive had are some things I know are just software issues. Reading all the negative topics here really made me nervous at first, but Ive yet to have a real problem.

    Anyways, I hope to learn a lot from you guys, and hope to be able to provide help as well as I learn more about this spectacular phone. I will never buy a phone outside of blackberry again. If for some reason I cant afford the high verizon bill in the future, Id rather terminate my contract (been with big red for 8 years) and go to Sprint, so I can still have a berry. I dont know how anyone can not love RIM and their great devices.
    No issues here still first unlocked no green dot tour

    I purchased my tour on 9/8 and have not had any problems. So far it has been great. The box it came in had the green dot mentioned on cb.

    I got my Tour back in July, and I have had no problems with it. I have a slight issue with the system running a bit slow when dealing with text messaging, but every other program is running like a dream.

    I have to admit, when I first got the phone, I was looking for reasons to hate it, because I loved my Curve, but it needed to be replaced, and I really couldn't justify paying over $150 for an older model when I could get the latest for $199. (Plus Sprint knocked off an additional $25 for all of my troubles). But other than the lack of curviness of the Tour, it is by far superior to the Curve.

    I couldn't be happier with it.

    If it is when you are replying to a text message, it usually is because you have to many previous items, Options>SMS text>number of previous items, I have mine set to 20 and it got rid of my lag. It was set to 100 and I noticed that when I would have long back and forth conversations it would lag when it reached around 40+ previous texts.

    Wow, really? Awesome, hope it works. I do have extremely long text messaging sessions with my husband, who's stationed in another state right now.

    Thanks!

    My phone is working just fine as well. The only time I have a little lag is right after resetting it.
