I bet if you graphed phone failures/mysterious explosions vs new phone releases, you'd see some interesting spikes.

My Tour was bought on day 2 of their release on Sprint. It was a problem to activate, but once tech support got me to the reprogramming screen it activated perfectly. My trackball was horrible, so I replaced it myself in about 7 minutes. Now it's perfect.

The early batches had faulty trackballs, but the newer ones have solved this. Just one of the perils of being an early adopter.

GPS apparently does not work with Google Maps, but it works perfectly with BlackBerry Maps. Something about an incompatibility with the new software and GPS chip.

Google Maps acquires a GPS fix on my Tour.

Anyway....I guess I'm one of 5 people that haven't had the first problem with mine. Tons of apps. None of the issues I see here. Then again....it seems that most people come to these sites because they have a problem and you usually only hear of the problems.

Nothing is flawless. But flawless or not, if the iphone were available on all of the 4 major US cellular networks, it would be the number 1 selling phone, hands down.

Agreed. AT&T is the iphone's weakest link. I don't know that RIM is lazy, but simply not of the mindset to aggressively compete with the likes of Jobs and Google. They seem to take things slow, at least in the software area. This could end up hurting them in the long run as Apple and Android press on with better features and applications.
