    Haha, I wouldn't say 99.99% of tour users have 5.0 OS because my entire dads company of over 300 people just got issued verizon tours and none of them have 5.0 OS. I actually spoke with their IT guy to tell him to go ahead and help everyone install it cuz I didn't believe the big red would ever go through with it. lol. *insert foot here*
