I'm beginning to think that this is all just marketing hype for Sprint to say that they were right in there with Verizon to "release" the Tour on the 12th when in fact they probably have few or none ready to ship. If it is a scheme, I'm sure it was just to try to keep customers from Jumping ship to Verizon because they know that Blackberry users like me have been waiting longer than any other carrier for an updated Blackberry product. I can assure you they have heard from me a few months ago about it and I've been a customer of theirs for almost 11 years now. It's not that I'm impatient and have to have it "now now now!", but I have no tolerance when I feel like I've been taken for a ride. I am beginning to think all Sprint customers have been taken for a ride.
Anyway, thanks for letting a newbie vent. All you VW customers out there have fun with your Tours. I'll eventually get there.
