Trackball issues on BlackBerry Tour no longer a problem - says Verizon & Sprint

Trackball issues on BlackBerry Tour no longer a problem - says Verizon & Sprint
What trackball problems you say? Well, we recently reported about RIM's BlackBerry Tour having a return rate of close to 50% because of trackball issues. Most recently though, Engadgetmobile wad told in a statement that the Sprint Tour had problems with “early productions” units – and Verizon is also stating the same thing. So it seems like overnight that all issues stemming from it have been resolved – it actually only developed in a small percentage of early production units. It was apparently resolved really quick early on after the discovery – now there's little to no returns from the trackball problems. So don't be too worried if you plan on purchasing this slick BlackBerry device because it's been resolved – making it one of the most return-proof smartphones apparently.

i guess this is what happens when you post articles without verifying the information first.

It's Sprint too. I hate it when people think they are discriminated against, because they are a certain wireless carrier. I think Verizon gets praised for the dumbest crap ever.

Specially considering BBerry was the one that built it...it must be Verizons Fault..(Obvious Sarcasm)

Agreed. What people are you hearing and seeing? You mean the ones that are happy as hell with their tour trackballs?

I know, right? I feel a little less intelligent after reading all of the posts. Between the bad grammar and ridiculous logic behind these posts, I thought I was a f*ckin genius.
