Pros: The usual BB strengths of email, apps and texting.
Nice to be able to go international now!
Camera better, but not as good as DARE.
Cons: Reception down by 2 bars as compared to Curve in same location
Short battery life- won't last all day
Sound quality is a REAL issue- customers saying they can't understand me is a PROBLEM!
OS buggy- still get screen freezes that last up to 10 sec.
Summary: A must have BB if you travel out of the US and use Verizon.Well, I finally gave up and returned my TOUR.
If you get one with a bad track-ball, just trade it out.
Get Vlingo for dictating texts and emails- it keeps you hands-free while driving.
Visual VoiceMail is a real time saver!

The reception IS THAT BAD. I swapped phones and updated completely! Still I only had 2 bars where I'd had 3 or 4 with my CURVE.
The TOUR has nice features but they DON'T MAKE UP FOR FOR POOR RECEPTION!
My customers noticed immediately and said it was nice to be able to understand me again.
