    From what I understand, when the storm came out, it had tons of problems and many believe it is because the storm was rushed to market way too soon.

    While the Tour's problems are not at the level of the Storm, there have been quite of few consistent problems reported. As such, do any of you believe that the Tour was rushed to launch just a wee bit too early? For those of us who do not have a Tour, do you think that we should just wait a few more weeks or so? (If yes, how much would it help?)

    It is nothing like the Storm. They shipped the Storm with crappy firmware and had the store upgrade them all before being sold. Verizon just wanted to push it out fast

    Personally I was not able to get my Tour yesterday even though I really wanted to and now I am thinking about waiting a bit. My Curve is still going strong and I have a Storm for back up.
    I really really want to go today at lunch to get it but I am still deciding whether or not to wait.
    I'll probably get it if I can get a long enough lunch today. Figure if I am really disappointed by the bugs (if I have them) I can always take it back.
    I definitely plan to play with it (actual device I will be buying, not the floor models) and check all the known issues before completing the sale/upgrade process.

    The bugs you are seeing are the exception, not the rule. I would push for the longer lunch.

    Perfection. You are not gonna get a better device at launch anywhere else. Ive had had more phones that i can count and this is by far the best on launch day.

    The Tour was not rushed at all. Are there any holidays around? Are there any new phones coming out that would be competition? There was NO reason for this to be rushed...so it wasn't. My Tour is flawless. If you're having any problems with it, take it back because I have not had any problems.

    Im a Verizon Rep and I definitely believe the Tour was not rushed.. We recieved word on its release about 6 months ago and have been waiting ever since just to be able to have another high end BB other than the Storm. During Launch day we sold about 25 of them and all of them set up seamlessly with absolutely no problems. Its amazing and I decided to upgrade to it yesterday to get out of my storm.

    I think you have watched the movie "He's Just Not That Into You" too many times.

    Keep in mind, there's ALWAYS going to be manufacturing defects. Assembly lines are not perfect. The model could be absolute perfection in development, but once its mass produced, there is always going to be a problem. Like someone said in another post, the problems with the Tour are the exception, not the rule.

    only thing was rushed was the fact that it was released on SO many carriers at once.

    The only thing that seems to be rushed around here is the OP rushing to post this silly thread.

    Don't worry they only rushed the OP's Tour because they new how badly it was needed!
