Ok, who thinks I should hang on to the 8330 and either wait for the Tour2 or 8530.. or just get the Tour and be done with it for a year?

I've heard good things about the Tour, but with the Tour2 it seems useless to update to a device that will be obsolete so soon.

I don't have a problem with the Track Ball, but the Curve has served me well.. and I have it already/still fully customized and I have charging cables everywhere I go.

I voted wait for the Tour 2 as I returned three Tours before giving up and getting a Curve. While I didn't experience any of the build quality issues (battery door or trackball problems) the call quality was just awful and it's reception was even worse. Verizon was willing to keep replacing phones but I was getting sick of it. I really liked the Tour's OS, camera and overall speed, but for me, the Curve was way better at being a phone than the Tour ever was.

Interesting.



I've been told my call quality has improved significantly from the 8330 to the 9550 maybe it was just all my excessive use.



Haven't heard of too many reports of bad call quality on the tour.
