Hi guys. New tour owner here and I'm curious as to where I find out the date my tour was made. I haven't had trackball issues but my battery door feels like its about to fall off and I've had a few people complain that they can't hear me. I'm wondering if I got a bad batch tour. I'm not even close to my 30 days yet, I've had it less than a week so I'm thinking I should get a replacement.

Press the Menu button, then Options, then About it should read 4.7.1.53 (latest update from Verizon for the Tour thought there are some newer version not released by Verivon). This seems to work fine. The early models had problems with loose doors and there have been a few posts that the newest ones have this fixed. Might take it back to a Verison store and ask for a newer one

Verizon has not released 4.7.1.53...its still at 4.7.1.40 from my understanding

Edit: Let me correct myself, they did release 4.7.1.53 but pulled it quickly. Therefore its still at 4.7.1.40

Default Born On Date

The born on date is located near the bottom right hand corner of the sticker that has your device info. on it (PIN, MEID...etc.) just above "made in mexico" or atleast it is with Sprint branded devices. Not certain if it is the same with all carriers.

If upgrading OS's I would grab the new one on the sticky of this forum. Download link and instructions are there. Been running it for a week or so now and had no problems.
