so for those of you not on sprint, you're saying that pictures and videos sent via mms are downloaded to your phone directly? my touch pro 2 and all other wm phones, treo's, etc for the past 2-3 years all downloaded to the phone, only the blackberries have I needed to go to the sprint website to look at them.

I am on Sprint, I use a basic Blackberry curve 8330 but I don't have to go to any website to view the MMS and videos sent to me. I just download them as I would on my PC. That may be specific to the tour.

Looks like you guys are going to have to wait a little bit longer for the 9650 or 9650x or whatever its going to be called. Rumor is that it wont be released until mid-second quarter this year.

One of my workers uses Sprint and has a Tour, his downloads just like mine. It is NOT a device issue, as I already state.

LOL

Maybe it will come with OS 6.0.............. instead of just a "Bold" device that has been out for well over a year...

I would have been very excited about getting this phone 6 or 7 months ago. Now I'm feeling more like this will be a convenient placeholder device until something that can actually meet more of my needs comes along.

I may actually go for the slider when it's released. I like the idea of the bigger screen with a physical keyboard. Of course, I will have to see one in person, play around with it and see if I like the form factor, keyboard, and overall feel of it. I just hope it isn't pushed out like the Storm 1 was originally.

I do wish they would hurry... I don't know how much longer my 8330 will last for..

Hopefully I can start finding extended batteries for my Curve for cheap soon lol
