Verizon releases 4.7.1.53 for the BlackBerry Tour
The BlackBerry Tour 9630 has some issues. After the morning alarm rings, you might have trouble turning on the phone, or you might find your Tour acting as if you still have a headset connected to it when you have already removed it from the device. Let's say you are in Setup Wizard trying to add an email account. Some Tour owners have complained that the phone jumps to Bluetooth setup, preventing them from going back and setting up the email account correctly. These are just a few of the problems that Verizon says that they have corrected with the upgrade to OS 4.7.1.53 for the model. BGR has put together a changelog for the upgrade which you can check out at the sourcelink. In the meantime, let us know if the update helps correct any issues that you have found with your handset.

If the alarm goes off, why would you need to turn on the phone afterward? Wouldn't it already be turned on? Goddamn.. Blackberries make no sense...

With BlackBerrys as with most other smartphones, it is possible to leave the device itself powered on while turning the radio or "phone" aspect off. This allows one to use other aspects of the device, such as calendar, MP3 player, games, etc. while not being connected to the network, thereby avoiding work, complying with FAA regulations, not being woken up by 3 A.M. drunk dials. You know, the usual. Hope that helps to de-mystify the magical world of the 'Berry for you.

blackberrys are great devices. especially the storm 2 which will be exceptionally better than the iphone.

Ah ok it's like Airplane Mode (yes, I have an iPhone :D).. I thought that it meant turning on the phone as in when the device is powered off. Ok I gotcha now.

Didn't read everything here and I'm not familiar with the problem, but... The alarm on a Blackberry (any many other phones) can be set and the phone turned off (to avoid those annoying phone calls in the night), the issue may be referring to this situation.

I've tried the wireless update and I get an error saying "no updates available". Anybody have any luck?

the desktop manager software updates for some reason come before the wireless update..also why would you want to do it wireless it takes a really long time and sometimes "times out".

I quit being lazy and grabbed out the cable, upgrade successful. Thank you VZW Fanman, didn't realize the wireless upgrades were delayed.

While they were mucking with the alarm, it's too bad they didn't add the much needed ability for multiple alarm times... I will be returning my VZW Tour in 6 days.

Hopefully he will be outside of his 30 return policy and will be told "kick rocks, kid." haha, but seriously would an intelligent adult really return a smartphone because it doesn't have multiple alarms?
