    Ok, my bad guys. As usual, Sprint customer service just lies through their teeth.

    I went into the corporate Verizon store yesterday and recieved the most god awful service from a sales rep. For the current Tour they wanted $199 for me to upgrade with a $99 mail-in rebate. The sales person was so bad I finally just walked out. I should have caught some video of this person as it was that bad !

    So , I went home and did the upgrade over the phone for $49. In a few days I will be the somewhat proud owner of a new tour. If the new Tour comes out before Feb. 4th I can mail the phone back and get a refund and then hassle with then getting the T2 since the phone rep says I couldnt take it in to a local store.

    I want that trackpad and wifi bad enough to do just that though.

    Yeah, you'll have to send the phone back, but no big deal - a FedEx return label will be in the box when you get the Tour. And hopefully this beyatch will be out soon.....at least a release date!

    Do you think RIM will use CES to announce new Tour as well as other new stuff? Or, maybe it will be Sprint and Verizon that make announcements. The Tour 2 is not likely to be BIG NEWS since it is an upgrade, but it will be big news to this thread.

    (BTW: I'm getting pretty tired of Sprint reps making me feel "dumb" when I tell them I'm waiting for Tour 2. Yesterday, when the rep said he didn't know anything about the Tour 2, I referenced the internet. He said, "Well, those blogs don't know anything." I asked him if he thought the pictures and videos were fakes. He just frowned and walked away. At least this time, the rep was the one who frowned and walked away, not me. I wasn't trying to be rude and I know he was trying to do his job. But all that game playing just makes me weary. I hope we get word soon.)

    Thanks to all the members here. Reading your comments make it worthwhile to wait for the Tour 2. Almost tempted yesterday to get the curve 2. The wifi and trackpad feels much better. The sales rep told me that the Tour 2 don't be out until end of 2010. They are a funny bunch of people!

    I don't know who you were referring to in regards to 'spamming", but I haven't read where anyone has. The forum is deisgned to discuss the pending release of the Essex, whether the info is from a Verizon rep or Uncle Jim.

    And not all reps are idiots.

    I check this thread everyday to see if anything new will be posted about the release date. I'm almost a little bit sad that once it comes out, I might have to start reading real news to get me through my morning.

    I don't know if you're being sarcastic or not, but I'm beginning to become skeptical. First the rumored date was a week before christmas. Then jan 15, we know for sure now its not jan 15th because we would have heard the official announcement by now. feb 10th? I sure hope so, but I have my doubts. I might just jump on 8530 or samsung moment and just hope that essex releases within 30 days.

    The leak of the .419 Tour OS today has me thinking the Tour 2 is almost here. The .4XX OSes seem to be what RIM's making official these days and I'd bet this .419 or something close gets an official release soon. And with that Tour 5.0 OS release, we should also see the Tour 2. I hope it's as good as we're all expecting.
