Okay I have a guy im supposed to be meeting tomorrow and he has a Mint/Perfect condition Storm 2 that he is going to trade me for my Tour in mint/perfect condition + $100.00 bucks. Is this a fair trade or a rip off?

I would say no because I wouldn't want to use an onscreen keyboard and I love my tour...

Hey I know what you mean, I would say it's a good deal though because you don't have to re-up your contract, you might have an activation fee though. If you want the storm 2 then you should get it.

It may be too late for my response, but here goes: Doesn't sound like a good deal to me. According to the Verizon website, you can get the Tour for $249 (or $149 with online discount), and you can get the Storm 2 for $279 (or $179 with online discount). So, make the trade and give him $30, not $100.

Even at full price, the Tour is $489 and the Storm 2 is $539, a difference of only $50. For him to ask for $100 is a ripoff. Don't give him that much.

On screen keyboards are a fancy gimmick at first they tend to loose their attraction quite well, trust me been there done that, moved on...
