Sprint Blackberry Tour 9630
Anybody got the newer Sprint Blackberry Tour 9630? I'm thinking about upgrading, but not sure it's worth the $150.00 upgrade price. Any suggestions?Trigger Pull,

I'm pretty happy with my $49 Spring Blackberry Curve, but so far I'm been unsucessful in getting its internet connection to actually work as a modem for my PC via Bluetooth when my PC isn't near a hotspot.
That might be because the Bluetooth computer side configuration instructions are vague, and missing something to set up the modem & PAN services.
I also wish the Curve automatically used hotspots when it finds them to boost the Internet speed - But it doesn't have WiFi. Can the Tour do that?
The Sprint GPS navigation program isn't as good as my dedicated Magellian GPS - It tends to be slow, making me miss turns and have to go back. I've never had the Magellian do that.
Oh yeah... It's also a phone

I have the Tour on Verizon. I got it around the first part of September. I've owned the Pearl, Curve, and now this. So far the Tour is my favorite.
Pros: Faster operating system, more application memory, awesome camera.
Cons: Reboot time takes longer due to more memory, call quality sometimes is shitty and can sound somewhat muffled.
There are supposed to be system upgrades out soon that will address the reboot and call quality.
I could've upgraded when it first came out, but I usually like to wait a few months to let the bugs get worked out. I got two for the 150 upgrade price and I think it was well worth it."Like" us on facebook! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Offic...93147194083228

I'm still rocking the nextel i580
As for the tour.... its a pretty cool phone. One of my buddies has the verizon version and loves it. I heard a rumor that a version with wifi could be coming later on this year.

I just upgraded from the Nextel 8350i to the Tour on the sprint network. Since our task force left Nextel, no reason to stay on a slow network.
So far I am pleased with the speed of the system and the applications and more memory. The one thing that baffles me is that I used to be able to put a call on hold and take another call and join them for 3 way calling. Cannot do that anymore.
Also the screen does not show who is on hold which I think is a step backward.
Also this tour does not have wi-fi. A new one released next year will.

I was a Blackberry virgin, just got the Verizon Tour yesterday and I'm ready to throw it against the wall.
Ok, not really but it is a little frustrating. After using the LG enV for the last two years, I just have to get used to the different keyboard and learn all of the functions of the Blackberry.
The one thing I've noticed so far is that the call quality is MUCH better than on my previous cell phone, the calls have been very clear.

Learning how to use a Blackberry can be difficult. It took me a week to figure mine out. I am a whiz on that thing now. It will get easier, just like any technology, it takes some time to learn."Sometimes doing the right thing, is not doing the right thing."
