Soul Rebel, 12 Jan 2010Whaty is the processor speed of the tour?Sorry, got my wires crossed there.
The Blackberry Storm runs on a 528MHz Qualcomm processor. I personally have had it only for one week and I enjoy it. Very good phone to have and very usefull.
I got this unlocked, its a great phone but my data is not working well with GSM.. i wonder is there any way my edge will stay up because this unit is useless without data. Help anyone?
why does sprint and verizon gets the worst phones out there! they are like the garbage pale for phone manufacturers.
the absolutelly worsed designed, worsed functional, lacking functions, lacking appeal, battery life.
i like cdma, good service but Comon! can we get a normal phone! once? maybe a better phone than att or tmo?
its mind boggling, billion dollar copmanies, who chatge an arma nd a leg for monthly service, cant get normal phones like bold, bold 2, 8900, nokia's, samsungs, lg's. notn! nada! what we get? some trash called 9630 who nobody wants or cares about, taht has a crappy scrolling ball. amazing!
i got my blackberry tour from gsmallover.com. it was really nice cuz the phones come fully unlocked n you don't have to sign up for a new plan to get it...and it was much cheaper than the full price at the store. it came really fast and the shipping was free. the phone is really nice. i just use it for basic calls and texts, but it performs really nicely. great service and great phone.
Even you have wi-fi if you don't subscribe to BIS plan, it still won't work. Well, only for surfing and that's basically it (no e-mail, no YM, etc.) So there's no point in having wi-fi really. In the end, you'd still resort to BIS plan if you want to get and enjoy its full service.
Given the specs, I suppose except for the appearance make over, this isn't any better than the Curve 8900.. A phone like this without a wifi is gonna be very expensive to use specially when one is deep into mobile internet. This phone is indeed for people who can afford to pay pricey data plans.
Smart indonesia will launch tour "officially" on jan 10th n first in asia..
izwan, 30 Dec 2009this phone is not officially launch in my country which is malaysia.So the service provider he... morewtf dude?r u kidding me..this device has been in m'sia for awhile..do u go n check it or just made up the comment..shoot u man!!
Ps : my name is also izwan n i came frm m'sia also..y ur name same as mine!!
I think this is by far the best BlackBerry I have used. I have used a Storm 1 (that's a crap phone and everyone agrees), a Bold, Javelin and some of the older 8707s. Nothing beats this phone. Yet to use the 9700, but I think I am pretty happy with the Tour. With OS 5.0 on it, it just rocks!
And the best part is it comes in a non-camera version! Hooray to workplaces that disallow camera phones!
this phone is not officially launch in my country which is malaysia.So the service provider here have no setting for this device.Arghhh!!!
i dont feel the lack of a wifi on this baby because i get 1XEVDO on this which is as fast as any wifi. I know because i was using Javelin 8900 before with wifi.
I've had a lot of phones of the years and by far this the best phone I've had its easy to used and its goes perfect with my lfe style
from solomondrin.net blackberry essex will have same design like tour but with trackpad n smaller dimension..i thought it same like javeline n onyx..the camera resolution still the same i.e. 3.2 mp..the processor still the same i.e. 528 mhz..the flash memory still the same i.e. 256 mb..the internal memory will be 2 gb..i hope all the specification is true especially the internal memory..i was so dissapointed with the review of onyx..first it said it had 1 gb internal memory but the true is only 256 mb..
ace, 11 Dec 2009Okay...I think I have found a phone that will last me for awhile...this year I have gone throu... morecompletely agree, not interested in 9650 tho (not a trackpad fan) however i have os 5.0 & its the greatest thing, i'll be buying tours for awhile (i even had the same bbs u had too, lol)
Okay...I think I have found a phone that will last me for awhile...this year I have gone through about four cellphones and up until I got my tour I haven't be satified...I have had the G1(good phone but horrible battery)n a bb 8800( good phone, great battery but no 3g or camera) a curve 8310 (again good phone but froze up way too much and cameras sucked) but with my tour I have a great camera, good call quality, better web browsing, great organizational apps, and a damn fine media player...the phone is stylish, sleek, and very high class)though I'm a little disappointed they already have a new tour 9650 made with a trackpad...I am very well pleased with how the trackball works on this phone( as with my curve I always was buying new ones every other week) good job RIM...I'm a customer for life
