    The sprint version says it will have unlocked gsm to be used with multiple carriers abroad, is the verizon version going to have that also? If not then sprint has a leg up on verizon.

    Verizon locks the GSM radio to Vodafone owing to the ownership stake by the British carrier in Verizon Wireless.

    Both will be missing WiFi, right?

    Neither sprint nor verizon version say anything about wifi. But the new storm will have wifi. Why can’t they put on this one? Although most of the times you don’t need it since they require data package anyway.

    I’ve been using Blackberries for over a year now (and have several of them to date). I’m not necessarily an “expert” on BB’s but I know more than the average user.

    I’m a gadget addict with full blown Blackberry addiction 🙂 If you have never had one and don’t know what I mean when I say that don’t worry, you will soon enough 😉 They say once you go BlackBerry you can never go back and for the most part that is true. I have had several Blackberries on Verizon (8830 World Edition, Curve 8930, Storm 9530, and soon to be the Tour 9630) which is my preferred carrier. But I do have a line on AT&T because I could not resist the Bold any longer. Soon I will have an unlocked TMobile BB 8900 Curve and swap that back and forth with my Curve (the wonders of a SIM card).

    I came across a site for the blackberry tour owners I hope you will also find it useful. talk care.
