    Well last week my Blackberry Tour experienced an unfortunate fall from my treadmill and killed the screen. I tried to get the company I work for to get me a replacement Tour but instead they decided to get me the Storm 2. So now I await the arrival of the new S2.

    I really, truly, absolutely fell in love with the Tour and I will always love it. It was by far the best phone i've ever had. Maybe one day I will own the new Tour2/Bold, but for now I get to experience the Storm 2. After having the Storm 1, I am skeptical, but I have also heard good things. Wish me luck!

    Good luck! I actually came from a s2 to a tour by choice. Too many problems with the s2 speaker and at times the bottom row keyboard lock problems. Hope you have better luck than me.

    Yeah I really don't want to go back to a Storm after what I experienced with the first one. Especially since I absolutely LOVED the Tour. I have heard good and bad things about S2, but I also heard they just came out with a new batch of S2's with better OS and what not.. Maybe i'll get lucky. It wasnt my choice, but i'm also not paying for it, so i can't complain

    Do you have your broken tour still? Are you willing to sell it to me for parts?

    The only thing I regret was breaking the dang thing. Getting this Storm isnt by choice, it's my work phone. If i had the money I would definitely get something else. But in time I can eventually get something better if I feel the need to.

    Actually, I was going to, but my work is having me send it to them in replace of the Storm. Otherwise I can't get it for free I know the phone is fixable, but oh well.

    I have both the Tour & Storm 2! I love having a real keyboard on the Tour but also love the WiFi and screen size of the storm 2! The only thing I had a problem with was the clicking of the screen on the Storm. Had some problems with the back button and sometimes the screen not responding no matter what OS I loaded on it. So I'm back to my Tour. Got to love it. Just can't wait for the version that has WiFi and more memory!

    Yeah I loved the Tour's keyboard. Texting, emailing and IM was so easy and convenient. Having the Storm 1, I got so sick of the clicking screen after awhile. It would click so loud when I was using it. But I have heard there are some trememndous improvements with the Storm. I also have an iPod Touch so now I will have two big devices lol! But I will still use the itouch for browsing, music, videos, games, etc. Hopefully I will have a fresh, fully functional Storm 2

    Don't get me wrong, they have made vast improvements between the Storm 1 and Storm 2. Just still too buggy for my taste. I just am so use to not having any of those issues with my Tour. Hopfully you will get a good working Storm 2. Good Luck! I'm sure you will love the phone!

    Haha! Thanks for the offer. Is there something wrong with the Tour or do you just prefer the Storm?

    nothing wrong at all with the tour just a geek that preferred his large touch screen to having the keyboard, i am wow'd by shiny and bright things and although my storm 1 had a rash of issues i really do miss the screen.

    That is one thing I liked about the Storm was the big screen, but that was really about it lol. It'll be nice to have that again as well as a better OS and Wi-Fi. If I change my mind on it, I will let you know and as long as my boss doesnt care, im willing to trade lol.
