"Nice phone, but too many problems initially."2.5 starson by larrymcj1
Pros: New OS, fabulous display, form factor, keyboard
Cons: Horrible sounding call quallity (to called party), very short battery life, takes an inordinant amount of time to reset, and has to be reset too often.
Summary: I've been a BlackBerry user since the first one came out...I love BBs. When the new Tour came out I was standing in line to get one, but a week later I was also standing in line to return it...literally! I in a line of five people and four of us were there returning the Tour.
Along the same call quality line, if you use the Tour with any Bluetooth device, including a hands-free system in a car, the person you're talking with simply can't hear you.
Many other issues involving poor build quality, trackballs that won't scroll from right to left, loose battery cover, but I could live with them. That I couldn't be heard by people I was calling was a showstopper for me.
Perhaps an updated OS and next manufacturing run on the hardware will fix these problems and I'll try it again. For now it's back to my old trusty Curve.
