    I am new to the forums but a lurker for a bit. I am up for an upgrade with Verizon on Dec 5th and have decided that I want a Blackberry. It was between the Droid, Droid Eris, and a Blackberry. A IT friend stated the following to help me separate them: "Get a Droid if you want a nice toy. Get a Blackberry if you want to take over the world." He's had his for over a year and still doesn't know all it can do. I have seen the problems with the Tour's trackball and I think I would rather have a trackpad. I would really like the old four directional keys and a select button in the middle but, alas. I see the Bold and soon a new Curve and was hoping Verizon will add either one of them, or change the Tour to a trackpad in the Tour 2. Any thoughts of if Black Friday will help or will it be January before any changes?
    Thank You.

    The only Trackpad device available now on VZW is the 8530 Curve, but a couple months down the road you're looking for the Tour2 release. You could always buy a used Curve now and upgrade when the device you want is available later, if that's the case.

    If I buy a used BB (from a private source)?, can I activate it through Verizon without too much trouble? Is that possible since VZW doesn't use SIM cards?

    U can find used 8330s that work with verizon all over the place and in great condition as well. Its a great phone and like said above, it will hold u over until the tour 2 comes out with the trackpad

    I'd choose a carrier first and go from there. I highly recommend verizon.
