    O snap, I didn't know you can constantly swap the ESN! I know there is an option to do that but I didn't know you can do it as much as you want! Sawweeeeet!! I'm so trying that! :laugh2:

    Yea. I used it alot when I modded my Moto RAZR's. I just swap it out, then I do a *22899 to make sure the radio connects. I takes a few minutes for the BIS to register. 5 swaps in the last 24 hours. lol

    I love the keyboard. Really like all the shortcuts you have with it.
    That being said, I am really, really missing the Storm's screen size. I use the GPS every day and with Garmin on the Storm, it's really easy to look at the screen quickly and see the surrounding streets. With the Tour and VZNav, it is different. Might sound odd, but with the Storm it's a quick glance and with the Tour it's something that I am having to switch my attention to since the names of the streets are much smaller. I have to physically hold it up to be able to read it. Not the safest thing to be doing while driving
    Another thing, using BB messenger is sort of a pain compared to the Storm. I have to scroll the screen up and down to see different conversations/contacts. With the Storm it's usually able to fit on the screen without having to scroll it. For some reason, that is just annoying as heck to me.
    My wife has the 8830 and is happy with it. She doesn't have our disease, so she doesn't get all worked up and giddy over a new phone. That being said, she played around with the Tour quite a bit last night and really liked it. Big improvement over the 8830, I think.
    I was planning on going and getting her the Tour this weekend, but am now leaning toward giving her this one and me going back to the Storm. I love the form factor and the keyboard/shortcuts of the Tour, but I think in the end that the larger screen of the Storm is going to have me going back to it.
    Just my 2˘.....
    Very well said DR. Your points make sense to me about BBM and navigation.

    I just tried to change my other voice line to my Storm but the system was forcing me to get a BB plan... with my company discount of 15%, it would've been an extra $25 or so... I'm not as hardcore as you people so I refrained from switching it over... haha $25x12 months is a lot of money for a poor guy like me... :P

    I agree DR Lyman. I went back to the Storm. Besides we can use our upgrade options for the Storm 2 in November!

    Just received Tour

    So I just received my Tour and after playing with it I am really loving it, more than I thought I did. First thing I should report is my freaking bluetooth finally works so just for that it's a keeper. The phone is very fast and responsive and the screen is extremely vivid. The keyboard is fantastic not quite as good as the Bold but then again it's not the behometh the Bold is. I am happy to report that my battery door, while just slightly loose is not an issue. While I liked the real estate of the Storms big screen I think I will be very happy with the Tour.

    Glad to hear you're happy with it. Been playing with mine (wife's now) again and I miss it already

    I did the same exact thing. She loves it and is very happy. Two birds with one stone.
