I just wanted to post a note about my Blackberry Tour from Verizon. I forgot my charger the other day and plugged it into my windows box but it would not charge. So I plugged it into my laptop running Ubuntu 9.04 and it not only charged it but I was able to access the micro SD card and move files to it. I did not try to sync it as I don't care about syncing it as that is done with my work PC and Lotus notes.
Just and FYI.
