    I was one of the first ones in line to buy the Tour, and like many, returned it 48 hours later for the trackball issue, Bluetooth problem, and some of the other same problems initially listed here by hundreds of users.

    Have most of these issues been resolved by now with either software/firmware upgrades and new manufacturing lots? I can't wait until next year for the Tour/Essex but don't want to buy the same problematic Tour I did when it first launched. Thanks.

    Thanks. I'll wait for a few more replies before I run out and buy it again. It just seems like for us VZW folks there is nothing else available...other than the Storm 2 (with all its problems).

    I thought about it also. but to much of a downgrade...

    2.0 mp camera vs 3.2 mp camera

    smaller display

    Same App Memory

    But World phone is a Plus with the Tour also...

    I've had mine a little more than 3 months and no problems. I love the phone. It's my first BB, so I can't compare it to other BB's.

    WAY too much cheap flexible plastic for me...see this post I made about that and another big problem (perceived by me, anyway) it has.

    Thanks for all the votes of confidence! I upgraded this afternoon and what a HUGE difference from the Tour I had on Launch Day. The only thing I haven't tried yet is the Hands-Free in my car...but betting that will now work as well. Everything...every single issue I had with the Tour is fixed. When I got it home it did need an OS upgrade, but it's working flawlessly.

    Now...if I could just figure out how to stop missed calls from showing up in the Message Center....I hate that yellow icon showing up every time I get a call. It's not in the same place as on my Curve. In fact, I hide the Message Center because I use the Gmail Mobile App and don't use BlackBerry BIS mail at all...so it's just not needed.

    I really wanted the Storm 2...REALLY! But several trips to the VZW store playing with it changed my mind. I know there's a BB for each of us, but after 11 years on a qwerty keyboard it's hard to go to the virtual one. I loved the display, but I don't need WiFi at all, so I'm fine with the Tour. I wish it had the Trackpad, but that will surely be out next year sometime...maybe I can make it a year with this one until upgrade time :-)

    11/22/09 and it has exceeding my expectations coming from a 8703e, curve, storm, storm, and now to the tour. I did notice my trackball hung up once but I gave it the evil eye and it's been perfect since. I'd give it a go!

    I couldn't hold out for the Essex so I picked up the Tour and am loving it, first time BB user. On a side note I actually prefer the wheel to the pad.

    I got my Tour on November 7 thru Cellular South. After going from my beloved Curve that I had for 9 months. I thought nothing could replace Maria. Yes, that was her name. Then I met Jorge. Yes, that is his name. I have not had any problems at all. After reading all of the negative press on the Tour, I still wanted the experience. I am glad I upgraded and never looked back. However, I do have a question that I have not found an answer for. When I type letters, why does the text underline on some words and not others?
