I heard that tour 2 9650 will come in may
But I heard that rim will change the codename become bold 9650
Because bold code name is more popular than bold n the tour owner will be dejected of so fast rim launch new tour
That's so weird
Well let's wait n see the truth..
luv the phone..used t 4 ova a month and fink its a lot better than 90% nokia fones...if my tour gets lost il buy another1 or a bold2.
ts true dah the fone hangs...in "milliseconds"..buh no fone is perfect....
nice 1 BB crew
really good one....could works well as modem in EVDO CDMA, love it....
This isnt rated as high as some other ones because of the WLAN (ie wifi) which pretty much should be standard... but evidently isnt with this phone?
Why is this not that popular and lower rated then 9000 and 9700. I really like the look and size of this phone. Should I buy or should I be concerned about something?
hello! for the users who dont know how to remove the message "activation required" from a verizon blackberry, if you dont usea verizon sim card ...just press ##000000 and send button ! will appeara secret menu and just tape the number at your sim card you use with device! phone will restart and after restart will appear the logo of the network you use ! also i think this phone is better than bb 8900 because it have a better qwerty keyboard ! but im sure the next device from RIM for my next birthday will be bb9700! cheers!
ok so, having been an avid NokIA fan, i thought id jump ship ship and give BlaclBerry a try, I like the phone, its simplicity because other phones for example have Flashy outlays on the menu's for instance which after a while mean nothing hence a plus for the straightforward menu layout on the BB and on the sub menu"s too. the camera is excellent during the day but could do with more zoom power and better performance at night despite the presence of flash.
the size and overall feel i think is good for a smartphone however the QWERTY keyboard is a bit too squashed but i guess thats the norm with any smartphone.
the downside though for me are that the ohone sometimes freezes for brief periods/miniseconds as if the phone is having hiccups. the network reception is good but the battery runs down quite quik when u run several apps which other phones can handle better. i dont mond not having wireless as i use 3G which performs well. i bought the phone in America and use it in South Africa (got it unblocked there) and it seems to perform equaly well. However some apps from the blackberry app world dont work so well in South Africa but i guess its coz they were not designed to work in certain regions.I also dont like the way apps that u delete from the bb appworld remain lingering in ur downloaded folder despite u having deleted them even though theryre highlighted as being archived upon deletion, its too much clutter lying around. finally, i do not understand why the bluetooth wont work for file transfers even from another BB. overall, im gennerally satisfied with the phone, the looks and performance and the bb internet service too. had i paid more than the bargain price at which i got the phone for, i may not have such dear words for the phone but overall im satisfied by it.
Javelin Lover, 23 Feb 2010Gemini is cheap dude, try Javelin...That's an amazing phone, except for the 3g thoug, but I do... moreYou guys must be crazy...the tour is an excellent phone...perfect size, beautiful screen res and its super fast ( at least here in VA on sprint) almost as fast as wifi) the 8900 keyboard was too small and the bold was like walking around with a mini flat screen (too big) and the storm...."FAIL"
Gemini is cheap dude, try Javelin...That's an amazing phone, except for the 3g thoug, but I dont need 3d since i have internet 24/7 and I don't download too many things. Javelin is the best, price quality design I love it!
Sam, 16 Feb 2010Why isn't this phone that popular? Not many votes...no review by GSMArena either...becoz bold,storm n curve are too cool for this one dude!

ace, 31 Jan 2010Okay...I've been going through some of the past post and I can't believe at some of the commen... moreya dude..im totally agreed..who want to use wifi if u can get the connection 24/7??cut the crap man..with BIS(although u need to pay more for the service)u r 24/7 covered with the connection..although im not using tour coz im using curve gemini,but the performance is so damn superb..even if i use any fone other than bb b4 that covered with 3g still cant challenge my beloved gemini although its running only on 2.5g(edge)...to other folks go n get the bb dude..n u know y pple like us is so obsess with it..once blackberrian always a blackberrian..hahaha..bb rules!!!
ace, 31 Jan 2010Okay...I've been going through some of the past post and I can't believe at some of the commen... moreYou know why here in our country this unit has an wifi capability and I already have one. I'm enjoying surfing the net using this phone and it's really fast and cool.
Okay...I've been going through some of the past post and I can't believe at some of the comments...most people complain about the lack of wifi...are serious??? I live in virginia and have this phone for sprint. With the 3g coverage this phone needs no wifi. Plus wifi just burns you battery down. This my 3rd blackberry (I've had the 8800, and the 8310) and this by far the best one I have ever held in my hands. The keyboard is phenomal. The screen work perfectly inside or outside and the camera is great. Youtube works good and I can go @ least 2 days without charging with medium to heavy use.my suggestion to those who say blackberry wasted their time are just clueless. Great job blackberry. If you want wifi or just want to play on a phone. Go to nokia or samsung. This phone is for grown ups who don't get paid by the hour. Go get a suit and tie and find a job with benefits. or just keep playing games and warching youtube while your on break. And make sure my fries are hot when I order them
