Default Dumped my Tour and reverted back to Curve

Please Login to Remove!

I bought it last week and have had numerous issues with the unit hanging on deleting messages and poor bluetooth quality/disconnects etc...so back it went and I re-activated my Curve...will wait it out till the next gen of CDMA BB's.

Sorry to hear it. I just got my Tour that replaced my Curve. Very happy with it - no trackball, voice or bluetooth problems.

Sorry to hear it as well. The latest OS seemed to improve your issues to some extent

Thank you, zerog46, but what is OS 5.0? I didn't know that was out. Is it posted here on BB Forums and I'm just missing it?

I was sooooo close to dumping the Tour and going back to my ultra-reliable Curve 8330 as well. But I replaced it with a newer working-trackball Tour and I am once again in Tour Bliss!

No OS 5.0 yet for Sprint users (?) - but I am looking forward to that one as well!!

You don't need any certain carrier to run the 5.0 update.

I tried the 5.0 OS and it just wasn't stable enough for me... crashing sometimes when i hang up the phone, or when i provision the network. The newest 5.0 does work with Facebook and Google talk though!

5.0 has never, ever crashed on me. Are you using 230?

Wirelessly posted (Lets Go Canes!)

With 8330 having a 5.0 OS Beta, I wonder how that affects the conversation.
