Icons straight from Mac OS X and integrated...

Phone Assistant  v1.4.2 Helps Keep Your Contact Numbers Organized: Add New Contacts To Home or Mobile Directly

Have you ever come across a feature while using a different device that you wish was included on your BlackBerry? Believe it or not, I have on some Windows Mobile devices (yes, shocking I know). The Windows Mobile method of adding contacts is great, mainly because it asks you what type of contact you are adding. The BlackBerry OS defaults to the work section no matter what, so if you are...

The rumors were flying all week long that existing Verizon customers wouldn't be able to upgrade to the Tour.  For some reason, Verizon didn't list the Tour on upgrade pages for current customers, and it seemed only new contracts would be able to snag the device.
