    Tour or Flip?

    Advertisement



    So I'm up for an upgrade with US Cellular, I have my phone choices narrowed down to the Tour or the Flip. Now I currently have a pearl 8130 and love it except for the lack of memory. I have gotten very comfortable with suretype so am not opposed to staying with a phone that has it. However I have had a full keyboard in the past and am very tempted by the tour for that reason, also it has even more memory than the flip, and a bigger screen. but it also comes with a 100 price difference. I can get the flip for $50 after my mail in rebate, or the Tour for $149 after mail in Rebate. So let me hear pros and cons on both. I'm sure it will be a heated debate. I love the size of the flip and but the flexibility of the tour is very appealing.

    Help me decide, I'm going in to get one or the other this afternoon..

    OH the Tour just came out at us cellular as of today!

    Tour 3.2MP camera, Flip 2.0MP camera.......Tour GPS, Flip NOPE......Tour QWERTY, Flip Suretype.....Tour 480x360 res, Flip 240x320.....Tour 256MB memory, Flip 128MB......Tour expandable memory, Flip NOPE......Tour 3G, Flip NOPE.....

    Looks like the Tour is a better phone hands down........now you need to decide if the features above are worth $100.

    The Flip was a mistake. Its pointless and ugly. Tour for the win.

    nice input, one correction the cdma flip that us cellular offers does have unassisted gps, and i almost never use the camera.. also I do like suretype, but the pros on the tour are very convincing... but $100 more convincing is what I'm trying to decide...oh and I have to convince the wife that it is worth $100 more... she has her 8130 and loves it so that will tell you where her thoughts are....I'll let you know what I decide...heading to the store in about half an hour

    Well the results are in, I got the Tour, so far I love it, of course now i have to get reaquainted with a full keyboard and such, setting it up now... when it came down to it the flip just felt and seemed really cheaply made... so there you have it.

    Another correction that needs to be made is that the Flip DOES have expandable memory.

    Well the blackberry website is wrong then........maybe there are different versions or something. Anyway, even if the flip had double d's and could cook the Tour would still be better.

    well I believe I'll be happy with my tour, although from what I've read the flip actually is a decent phone. the tour won me over

    Yeah, no doubt the flip is better than many non-BBs......but it doesn't (and wasn't designed to) stack up to the Tour, Bold, or 8900. Congrats on the purchase!

    One of my end Users begged for the Flip... and hates it. it is falling apart. She has another year before she is eligible for an upgrade. She is now begging again...
