Is this the best you can do... The tour sucked so your comeback is a cheaply made blackberry ???? I heard this phone was made for people looking for a cheap $100 phone... 2.0 megpixel camera, really !!! Trust me you are way better of getting the 8330 curve. I hated the cheaply built tour, and thought the curve was made more solid, and better keyboard... So I returned the tour and got the hero.... Until sprint gives us a real blackberry im sticking with my hero, and curve as a back-up....

If you're happy with your phone why are you complaining? I have no complaints about my Tour. People don't need all the features the Tour offers there are plenty of people still buying the Curve over the Tour because of price. Stop complaining, it's not a big deal you just admited that you still have the Curve and you'll use it as a back up. So you KNOW it's a good phone. The phone is going to have an updated OS, Trackpad, and WIFI. What more do you want? Go somewhere with that negativity it's better than not having anything at all.

I am assuming that the original posters comments were made out of ignorance, so I guess he would be better off knowing why the Curve exists:

-Just like car manufacturers offer a full line of cars to choose from with various features and price points, phone manufacturers do the same. There is a blackberry for most everyones price and taste
This is marketed as the Toyota of phones. It's solid, dependable, but not flashy and overly expensive. If you want a Lexus type phone, then RIM makes those too
-Your comments should be directed at the manufacturer which is RIM, not Sprint. They only sell the phones
-There is a long list of improvements from the 8330. The main ones are: WiFi, more than double the memory, smaller form factor, trackpad,...

Laughing I like how he blames Sprint for Sprint makes phones or something, and like Verizon doesn't carry the same thing, and soon so will every other company in the world. Laughing

Exactly, Sprint doesn't make the phones.

Some people can't be made happy.

the tour is one of the best phones made.

the new curve is a steal for only $50. it wasn't meant to be an update to the tour. If you want a newer version of the tour wait a month or two, the tour 2 with wifi, 2 gb internal memory, trackpad, and 5.0 os will be released. that phone will prob cost at least 200 with a 2 yr.

Yeah I agree..I went with the BBcurve8350 instead of the Samsung Moment. Needless to say i'm retarded. The curve isn't all that bad though. Wifi is awesome, camera is so so, and if you get any otterbox commuter or defender case it will turn any phone into an indestructable machine. So yeah, the 8350 isn't the best, but is still a decent phone. Android is taking over the world though!!! EVO madness GET REASDYYY
