    I always go to the store at Desert Ridge Mall.

    I have been to the Scottsdale Pavilions and they are not very good in there.

The negative reviews that I read, are the things that will drive me nuts Plus, my storm is perfect and I love it....honestly, I don't even know why I called vzw to try tour out
    I am glad that I am not the only one who does this

In that respect the Tour does beat out the 8830 in every aspect hands down. I personally like this device compared to my 8830. I have not experienced the loose battery door that many have had. I also do not have the screen distortion when using the send or end key. The device is easier to manage and fits nicely in my hand. Picture and video are a nice addition. It will take some getting used to the physical keyboard for some but its easier to use than the 8900 but more difficult than the 9000. I like the suretype and miss it here. But with the new OS's coming out and the rumor of sure type for the physical keyboard devices would make this device more of a pleasure to use.

    I do look forward to the Storm 2 and will acquire that device as well.
    Yeh I agree. I had thought about it and I never really used the Storm for multimedia purposes so I figured I'd get the Tour with the physical keyboard. I only got the Storm cuz it was touchscreen and had that gimmicky clicky screen. :laugh2:

    +1 to that, loved the iPhone but AT&T's network sucks. My wife has the iPhone and sitting in our house she gets no reception while my Storm has 5 bars. Big props to VZW for having the best network out there.

    You don't even have to go online to swap now, just turn off the old phone, dial *228 otpion 3 on the new phone, after device transfer dial *228 option 1 and you have just changed your handset.

    Maybe a mod could put this info some place more prevelant--CS rep told me that big red just started doing this.

    Actually I'm going to go back to my Storm tonight with new OS and see. Right now I'm not really blown away. Tour has some easy features compared to storm but both phones are very different and both good and bad in their own way. By no means am I knocking the Tour. Just very undecided what to do

    I went to the store and played with the tour a bit. I think I could get used to it but I do share some of the concerns about build quality. The 8900 seems to be much more stable as does the Storm.
