    Got my Tour today, open the UPS box, pretty Sprint Box, pull the Tour out...

    VERIZON at the bottom of the Phone. Unfreak'n real. The worst part is I think the software on the phone is Sprint. I'm gonna try to activate the phone and see that happens. Pics taken with my Curve so sorry for the burriness.

    Wow! How in the world could that even happen? Must have been a mistake at the RIM factory?

    Only thing that could make it funnier is if there was a pic already taken on it too

    good to know that even sprint knows what to send their highly valued customers.. this would be an instant BGR or engadget hit!

    Its a Sprint Tour. I called them to return it, but then said say I have to play with it first. Everything about it is Sprint. Chrome bezel and everything. I'm gonna call to active and be the ONLY Sprint user with a Verizon Tour

    Haha that is funny. Verizon phone, Sprint customer. Hey if it works I would hold tight to it especially since everyone else has to wait.

    wow. i guess the shortage really hit sprint hard. i wonder how that phone conversation with verizon went. "Um...ah...do you think we could borrow a couple thousand units?"

    im glad i ordered mine when i did. i couldn't stand verizon badging, although, i wouldn't mind the titanium bezel

    yea show us a picture or video of it loading sprint with the verizon logo, and better yet, do a nice video showing the esn from inside the phone and the box because i really am skeptical, my buddy has verizon, i easily could of mocked it up exactly like this

    that's a riot! i wonder if it was an RIM manufacturing screw up or a provider screw up.
    either way, you probably have a one-of-a-kind Tour!
