    Okay, the Tour was returned and I am back to the Storm. I played with the remaining 7 Tours at the BB store on Raintree/101. Each of them the battery cover was worse than the one I had. One other one had the buttons loose...The young lady there smiled and said "I guess you should keep the Storm for now" and we both laughed. I told her, "Guess I will."

    Please don't take my experience for the gospel and by all means try it if you desire. I personally think the Storm is better for me using OS 151 than the Tour.

    Did other BBs have such poor manufacturing quality when they were released? It seems kind of crazy that people are having so many issues with the hardware. I can see finding some bugs in the software but the construction and tolerances on the case itself wrong.

    Who knows but I will say this... since RIM and Blackberries have gained market share and popularity, more and more consumers are using them and not just business folks. We all know consumers complain the loudest while the business folks only complain to their IT/Communications dept. :laugh2:

    That's so true. The IT guy where I work hangs out in the office with me a lot and he gets all sorts of stupid calls from people complaining that something doesn't work. His first question is always the same, is it plugged in and turned on?

    This is very true but I can't imagine that build quality is not an issue for both (consumers and business folks).

    Well that's the thing, it's not like the phones are literally DOA or broken. Some defects here and there, yes. Consumers just feel they need a perfect product for their hard earned dollars and I don't blame them, not all of us can write it off as a business expense. But again consumers complain the loudest. Other factors may be since RIM has gotten into the consumer market, they need to have great deal more of phones manufacturered and probably outsourced to different companies, some of them probably cheaper and less than stellar standards of QA.

    In short, for all we know, nothing has really changed, we're just hearing more of these complaints cuz of consumers, forums, and blogs.

    Your right and I get to write my phones off, but the (at least 9) Tours I tried all were poorly built (All were from Mexico). I just remember the Storm Builds being terrible until later in the release cycle. I am going to wait.
