Thanks for the info.
I ordered the Tour 9630 today. After going in to the store and trying out both phones, I decided to go with the Tour.
I was disappointed with the size of the keyboard on the Curve, compared to the spacious keyboard on the Tour. Plus, navigation and everything else felt better with the Tour.
I asked the sales rep if they were still having any problems with the Tour's trackball. In reply, she held up her personal phone, a Tour 9630, and said, "We had some problems with the initial batch, but haven't had any noticeable problems since then. I've personally never had a problem with the trackball, but I also clean it periodically with alcohol."
I have seen the Youtube cleaning technique that was posted- couldn't help think it might work a bit better with cardstock instead of paper. I've also read, like the sales rep, about people just swabbing it with alcohol periodically too.
My phone should be here hopefully tomorrow, so I'm excited... my FIRST BB
after having the Helio Ocean 2 with Virgin Mobile.
