I've searched the forums to see if anyone else is having the problems I am having with my Tour, but I haven't found much of anything...so I apologize if it's out there, and I missed it.
I have a 9630 with Bell, and have had it since launch, and it's very slow and sluggish. Most times it's great...It's probably the best phone/device I've ever had. But every once in a while, it seems to get tired, and take a minute to do something. (ie. I type out a message of anywhere from 1 sentence, to 20 sentences, and quickly click the trackball twice, and it stops. the message is displayed for up to a whole minute, seemingly doing nothing and totally unresponsive to any buttons I hit. After the minute or so, it closes/sends the message, and I can go about my day) It also happens sometimes when connecting to my bluetooth device in the car(RIM VM605 that I use to play mp3s as well)
So, I was so frustrated by this, I brought the device back to Bell and got them to replace it for me...but this replacement device is doing the exact same thing. I would love a new OS dedicated to fixing this problem, but I am unable to install 5.0 as I'm on a BES and I'm told 5.0 won't work with it quite yet. I'm currently running the stock os, 126.96.36.199. HELP!!!
You aren't alone :(
My first one did the same thing and my second one is better but sometimes still had the "hiccup"
Since installing 5.0 it has gotten better for me. I will say that I found berrybuzz 2.0 to be a major cause of my slow down. Once I deleted that it only did it occasionally and was tolerable.
From what I have heard 188.8.131.52 that is floating around out there seems to fix this issue quite a bit, if not all together

+1 on the lag. It's not bad but it's there. I tried .191 and it seemed better but as a telus customer I didn't get a full web browser. So there is hope. It's not you device.
Maybe .42 will leak and we can try that!
I don't experience any laggs. Well 90% of the time I don't experience lagg. I speak highly of my tour to friend and tell them it seem like it has a heMi under the hood.
Good luck and Happy labor day...
