My only nitpik is how long it takes to restart -- jeesh, water boils faster.

    Keeping fingers crossed though, after seeeing the pages of problems others have had. C'mon, RIM, you can launch much better than that!
    The restart does take a little while but coming from a iPhone 1st generation after 2 years I have to say I am glad to be back.

    I'm really happy with my Tour so far. No problems, knock on wood. Found a good theme, and finally found a good .pdf viewer. Coming from an 8330 I was concerned about the keyboard, but I think I like it's more tactile feel a little better. The back gets a little slippery at times in my hand though. All in all, even though it is an inanimate object, I'm lovin it.

    I've had my Tour about 7 weeks and I liked it pretty well, although I don't care for all the shiny surfaces that seem prevalent on newer blackberries.. Had a few issues like Google Maps not locking onto the GPS, etc.

    However, I will say that I love the TOUR since updating the operating system to 4.7.1.57 (on Sprint). It's better in every way now. Faster, better battery I think and the GPS rocks now.. Locks quickly and Google Maps works great using the GPS. Overall, the Tour with .57 OS has me smiling...

    So I'm wondering, for those who have it, do you love it or hate it? And what phone did you come from?
    Just like you I had the storm and now I have the tour. To tell you the truth, you should just wait for the storm 2 to come out. The tour is the first bb I didn't like. I have had issues with the track ball not responding. Then from time to time the phone freezing up on me. All in all not worth the money to me. Once the storm 2 comes out then I'm saying goodbye to the tour..

    Love it. Big fan.

    Everything perfect, except after 6 weeks -- rollerball started not working properly. It became difficult to move through a sentence and make changes, move through the days on the monthly view to go to a specific day, etc.

    So apparently this is a design problem which BB and/or Verizon has caught onto. There is a quick fix which others have spoke about here and apparently it works, but that's just not me. I brought it back, they made arrangements shipped me a new one (I had to return the old one in the same box) -- the new one arrived, and in a matter of no time I was up and running. I had a problem with Desktop Manager -- but that was not Verizon, BB or anyone else's fault. Seperate and distinct issue.

    Other than the rollerball, I haven't heard any downsides. I am a simple user and don't use all the bells and whistles, I don't have any downloads, apps, etc. I was the proverbial hold out and didn't want to go with a new one. I am very glad I did. I didn't want a touch screen and I did want a full keyboard so this was the perfect BB for me. I was originally going with an 8830 World Edition and waited an extra couple of months to get the Tour/9630.

    Good luck.

    Blackberry Barcode really works. I was able to scan a code from the computer screen off of an avatar. Crazy!

    I put the Official BB OS 4.7.1.65 on my Tour and it is working perfect, no track ball issues. I only had to delete the Vendor file, and the desktop manager loaded it right on my Tour. bye Director447
