    I could "wirelessly" update my sprint tour to 4.7.1.57

    Is there any bugs on this version? Would it ruin the tour? Should I upgrade or no?

    I hear a lot of people have bugs on their tour. Help please

    Im on .57 with Bell and it is rock solid. Very stable with no issues. I dont see how it can be any different with your phone and Sprint's .57
    Go for it ....

    You should upgrade to 5.0.0.230 at least.. I did it a couple nights ago, and it's amazing! I'm going to upgrade to the Hybrid as soon as I get a chance, but I highly reccoomend .230. One of the coolest things about is the threaded text messages, but it also cuts your reboot time almost in half!!

    I must agree. I'm on Verizon and have been using Sprint .57 for a month or two with no issues. Verizon put out .63 or .61, I forget, and it would drain my battery in less than a day with little use. Went back to .57 and rock solid all day with 50% left at bed time.

    I also agree. I've been running 5.0.0.230 for a couple months and it works pretty damn good. It's way better than the ancient 4.7 lol

    I am currently on .57 & it is solid. I went up to 5.0.230, but went back to 4.7 b/c of battery drainage & other noncompatible apps. I am very satisfied w/.57 and have not regrets. It's a safe upgrade.

    I had 4.7 when I got my Tour and wasn't sure about upgrading to 5.0.
    Then one day I was bored and did it. Was/is the best thing I did.
    And now I'm running OS 5.0 with the newest Hybrid and
    my BB is running better then ever.
    If you want to upgrade your OS, I'd say try OS 5.0
    and for some reason (can't see any) if you don't like it
    then go with OS 4.7. And if you like the 5.0 do the Hybrid then.

    And for a battery drainage, when you first install it you will
    see battery drainage. But do a few battery pulls and let the
    OS settle in and you won't have a heavy battery drainage.
    You will see the battery go down a little more then OS 4.7,
    but don't forget you are getting a lot better/faster internet and
    reboot time is like cut in half or even less. Plus a few extras.
    And now there are plenty of Apps compatible with OS 5.0
    and the ones that are not, the company's are working on
    them to make them compatible.

    .57 is great! Official OS5 should be out in less than a month, so I would wait if I were you. Don't listen to these drug pushers.

    Ok that was funny..... But yes, since official 5.0 is most probably weeks/days away , i would also wait for an official release. Although 5.0 is better/faster... It will not make a world of a difference. It is just an improved version of 4.7
    RIM needs to step it up . We need a completely new OS.... New browser etc..

    If what everyone says that 5.0 will be released when the Essex comes out and rumors say before the end of the year or early 2010 thats why i said weeks. Days/weeks/months whatever makes you happy.

    Yeah that makes sense. Happened with the Storm 2 so I wouldn't doubt it.
