    i kinda miss my 8830, the tour has a smaller keyboard and the feel is crappy with the stupid battery cover being all unstable. the damn red light does not blink for messages if the phone is set to ring or vibrate "phone only". And why the **** is the battery cover not rubberized like the rest of the back of the unit? who's stupid idea was that? I WANT MY SILVER BUTTONS BACK!!!


    i've made a mistake... and i have to live with it. I want my 8830 back, but it's with some nice woman in VA now and it will never trust me again even if it did come back. the grass is not greener:

    When I had you to myself
    I didn't want you around
    Those silver button always made you
    Stand out in a crowd
    Then someone picked you from the bunch
    One glance was all it took
    Now its much too late for me
    To take second look


    Oh baby give me one more chance
    To show you that I love you
    Wont you please send me back in your heart

    Oh 8830 I was blind to let you go
    But now since I see you in his arms
    I want you back
    Yes I do now
    I want you back
    Oo oo baby
    Yeah yeah....naw....

    Trying to live without your trackball
    Is one long sleepless night
    Let me show you girl
    That I know wrong from right

    Every street you walk on
    I leave tear stains on the ground
    Following the girl
    I didn't even want around


    Abuh buh buh buh
    All I want!
    Abuh buh buh buh
    All I need!

    Um, ok. I wouldn't take my 8830 back and give up my Tour and I'm pretty sure a lot of other people on here feel the same way. I'm not even willing to give up my Tour for my 8330!

    I put an OtterBox on my Tour and I don't even know the battery door is lose (well, on my old one it was). Put a silicon skin on it and you won't feel the battery doors looseness anymore.

    Or try to pick up a 8830 on eBay. I'd give you mine but the wife and I are giving it to our daughter.

    I need to get out more... because i miss my 8830?

    I have spent more time rediting emails because of these tiny keys. the battery door could stand a rubberization. the wiggling is annoying and unsettling.

    the otterbox is cool but i don't want to carry around a coconut.

    the 8830 was solid. no wiggles or creaks. the tour is cool and i love it... but i'm not IN love with it. I think that the curve 8330, as flimsy as it feels, would have been a better upgrade. that's just me.


    yeah yeah, shoot the guy who goes against the grain.

    How long have you had theTtour? It takes some time to get accustomed to a new phone. I still miss my 8330, but have no idea why.

    After reading your post here - my heart goes out to you, but I can't help wondering why you didn't check the Tour out more thoroughly (ie. hold it in your hands for a while, etc.) before you decided to give up your 8830. You have to know that "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush" anyway. Or were you just a victim of "the great american hype machine?"

    I don't have an 8830, but I do have a Bold and until RIM comes up with something way better than this - it will have to be pried out of my cold, dead hands - and even then I just might come back to life to get it back!

    I think we all have a little too much time on our hands though. After all - we are on here - right. And when I say "We" I have absolutely included myself in the group.

    It's been real.

    Peace
