I just read through this whole thread, and you guys are killing me. I have a Blackberry Tour that I just got in August, and I'm ready to throw it out the window. Allow me to regale you with my tale of woe:
I had a first generation iPhone that I got a couple of years use out of. But I really hate AT&T. It drops calls like no ones' business, and in some instances, I wasn't getting a signal at all. So in August I decided I'd had enough, and decided to jump ship for Verizon.
But because I'd been spoiled by the iPhone (I loved the phone as a device - I just hated AT&T's coverage
), I wanted something in the way of a smart phone. I was luckily discouraged away from the Storm 1, and was lead straight to the Tour.
I should also take a second to point out that I have a Mac, not a PC, so getting everything to run correctly with the Blackberry desktop manager on an Apple computer was no fun. That took quite a while for me to work that out.
While I love Verizon to bits and pieces - the coverage is awesome - I just hate the Tour. Specifically, I have to say, I hate the tracking ball. The fucker either sticks or goes everywhere, and it makes the device barely usable.
But I just got the goddamned thing in August. I was thinking of jumping ship for the Storm 2 (which is getting much, much better reviews than the Storm, of course
), but now you guys have definitely swung me over towards the Droid. Anyway, it's killing me, because the Tour is a new phone - I just don't have the money to get another new device all over again before giving this piece of crap a year.
So tell me, while I think it over - are there any Apple users using the Droid on their Macintosh? How does it sync with an Apple? Will I lose applications, or drive myself crazy trying to get it to work with my computer? Is there even a Droid desktop manger for Mac users?
It sounds incredible, Verizon should be paying you guys for the reviews!
