Pros: World phone, solid call quality, good battery life, smooth trackball (I preferred it over trackpad)

Cons: Limited to BB OS 5 (current is 7), no wifi, long restart/startup times

The trackball on the Tour was plagued with issues. It gets dirty and stops responding, necessitating a cleaning or replacement. I feel the Bold 9650 was a huge improvement over the Tour. Trackpad, double the memory, and WiFi.

I would say install one of the two stable hybrids on it. Mines running so much better, litearlly 3x data speed boost AND phone is much more responsive. I shrunk the OS to less than 50MB.... so go figure
