    I too download the update and my Tour crashed. Verizon said it is happening to a lot of people, waiting now for a new phone. Lost all of my contacts!

    I downloaded and my Tour is now fried… I was told at the Verizon store that there were problems with the update and they are now sending a new Tour to me for free. They say the update is fixed now and should not cause a problem again.

  • downloaded update last nite. Texting is different, smarter commands and can now see sent texts- shows running log. Message alerts look a bit different. So far, so good…..
