Verizon blocks Tour pre-orders for those upgrading their handset
While Verizon has started taking pre-orders for the BlackBerry Tour 9630 as we reported, Big Red is not allowing pre-orders from those upgrading their current Verizon handset. If you attempt to push through your order for the widely anticipated device using your upgrade privileges, you will get on the screen a message that says (in stop sign red) "Pre-orders not available for upgrade orders at this time."

If you were planning on trading in your Verizon handset for the Tour, you can try to find a telesales rep that is unaware of the carrier's plans, hope that Verizon reverses this policy after hearing complaints, or wait until the July 12th launch date to pick up the phone.
