    Me, too. If Sprint only gets a slab, I will be shopping for a non-Pre or a non-Sprint phone. Haven't quite decided which one, yet.

    I had a talk w/ a CSR yesterday.
    Thought I'd share it as it made me a little hopefull (not that CSRs Know aything)

    Also, held the names as I don't want to get anyone in trouble.

    17:02:35 : You are next in queue...

    17:02:35 : Please wait and the next available account specialist will be with you shortly.

    17:02:40 : (CSR Name) has joined this session!

    17:02:40 : Connected with (CSR Name). Your Reference Number for this chat session is #######.

    17:02:40 : Thank you for contacting Sprint. My name is (CSR Name).

    17:03:00 : (CSR Name): While I access your account information, can you please provide more details about why you’re chatting with us today?

    17:03:31 : leo v: I would like to know if there has been any news you can share about the future of webOS phones on Sprint.

    17:05:26 : (CSR Name): Let me check this for you.

    17:06:41 : (CSR Name): I can check that we have some phone available with webos systems.

    17:07:30 : leo v: please

    17:07:41 : (CSR Name): We have PLAM PIXI , PLAM PRE and some other phone which have webos system.

    17:07:50 : leo v: other phone?

    17:08:06 : leo v: not out yet?

    17:09:06 : (CSR Name): You can also check the phones features and there cost on the link http://shop.sprint.com/mysprint/shop...=ATG:HE:Phones

    17:09:43 : leo v: I only see the Pixi when I select webOS

    17:10:23 : leo v: The Pixi would be a downgrade from the current Pre I have

    17:11:19 : leo v: I am looking to see if there is a new one coming any time soon. I have been due for an upgrade for a while and if Sprint does not get one when the Pre3 comes out I may have to "jump ship"

    17:11:26 : (CSR Name): I am sorry as I can see that we only have Palm® Pixi webos phones avalliable with us.

    17:11:54 : leo v: nothing of the "other phone" you menchened?

    17:12:26 : (CSR Name): I am sorry right now we only have Palm® Pixi with web os feature.

    17:12:58 : (CSR Name): If in future we have the other phones available with us we will update you.

    17:13:09 : leo v: I know right now, but I was inquiring about the future.

    17:13:56 : (CSR Name): I am sorry as if now we don't have any more phone coming with web os feature.

    17:14:34 : leo v: Well, it may not be good enough, if news from another carier about the Pre3 comes before Sprint says anything I may just have to take my entire family plan to whoever gets it. I am looking for reasons to want to stay w/ Sprint, and it is becoming very hard with no news.

    17:14:41 : (CSR Name): If we received any information regarding this we will update you via notifications.

    17:15:11 : (CSR Name): I am sorry for the inconvenience.

    17:16:00 : (CSR Name): I can understand that.

    17:16:30 : (CSR Name): We are working on it to launch pre 3 as soon as possible.

    17:16:50 : leo v: Can you "un-officialy" say I should keep watching?

    17:18:06 : (CSR Name): If you want you can upgrade the phone you can go for our new 4 G phone launched.

    17:18:29 : leo v: no, I do not like Android or Windows Phone 7

    17:19:14 : leo v: Android I find very clunky, WP7 seems neat, but again is not for me.

    17:19:21 : (CSR Name): I am sorry as I cannot comment the exact time of launch of PRE 3 however we are working on it and as soon as we receive any information regarding this we will update you .

    17:19:37 : leo v: thank you

    17:19:46 : (CSR Name): I can understand your problem

    17:20:14 : (CSR Name): Be assured we are working on it and we will have this for you as soon as possible.

    17:20:20 : leo v: I'll keep my fingers crossed for now

    17:20:31 : (CSR Name): Sure.

    The PLAM PRE? When did I miss that?

    Some day, I will see if they know when the HP Vexation is coming out...

    I think it's pretty clear Sprint is not getting a Pre 3 by now. If not please all who still think it's coming put your money where your mouth is now. Daddy needs money to switch to Verizon

    Anyway here's a big reason why it's not coming:

    When reading this thread someone posted their conversation with a CSR and the CSR suggested using this link (Sprint | Be an insider.) to sign up as a Sprint Insider to find out about the release of new phones.

    Anyhow, I found the image of the phone they are trying to cover up funny (Pre -)

    I had an interesting day yesterday.

    First I went to my local Sprint store to get my microphone, speaker, and volume buttons replaced on my Pre. I had this interesting conversation with the tech as he worked:

    JHawk: "I love my Pre, I just wished it wasn't falling apart!"

    Tech: "Yeah the hardware is pretty weak but the software side is great."

    JHawk: "Any rumors floating around about Sprint picking up the new HP Pre?"

    Tech: "Hmmm,I havent heard anything"

    JHawk: "Yeah I figured, I thought I'd ask. HP has been pretty hush-hush on who will be carrying it"

    Tech: "Hold on, which phone did you say?"

    JHawk: "The HP Pre3"

    Tech: "Ohhhhhh, the Pre3! Yeah from what I've been told the Pre3 is coming to Sprint. Towards the end of Summer though."

    JHawk: "Wow really?"

    Tech: "Yeah a lot of people have been talking about it. I know plenty that were dissapointed when the Pre2 didn't come to Sprint."

    ---
    Yeah I know, what would a tech know for certain? I personally believe him, the matter of fact tone he had was pretty convincing.

    I also stopped by Best Buy while he was working on my phone. I went over to look at the Veer. They only had a dummy unit though The mobile department manager was there and I asked him if they had a working Veer anywhere. He said "Yeah sorry, we seem to be the only Best Buy that doesn't have one!"

    I went to the tablet section and saw HP's end cap display, can't wait til there's a real demo unit there!

    I played with a Xoom and the Galaxy 10.1 for abotu 20 minutes. I still have no idea what I'm doing on them. It was really confusing. Also the ****** in me left both iPad2 models' Safari open on Adobe Flash's webpage :P "We're sorry Apple has decided not to support Flash. Here's a link to the multitude of tablets and smart phones that do support it."

    Anyway, take the Sprint stuff with a grain of salt. But the guy did fix up my Pre real nice!

    No iphone either. Actually, there was nothing really surprising on that list. It's probably just the list of known devices. Maybe any that are still in the negotiation or potential phases are left off.

    just read this on WebOSroundup


    It's says that Sprint has no plans for webos in there roadmap for Q3. If true ...i guess Sprint has played there cards and become a true Android camp. I still think HP can sell these phones themselves ( hopefully severely discounted) as a gateway device to buy other HP devices....ie web printers, tablets, maybe even more computers if a proper desktop app can work with windows. HP should also double down and sell bundles...buy a laptop/desktop get a phone. I hope this is just rumor because I've about had it!!!!

    Bah, when will you all learn!?

    Sprint put HP on double-secret probation. That is why they will not make any public statements.
    I see pandas.

    The title of the thread is also somewhat misleading, and should be changed to reflect "Q3/2011".

    IMHO, of course.

    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    In any of the leaked roadmaps for the other carriers, phones like the iPhone are never listed. That's not to say that the Pre3 is in the same category for the carriers, I just don't think those roadmaps are always a complete picture. It's unfortunate that there's no sign of a webOS phone on there though. At this point I'm looking for signs of life of webOS on Sprint, and just not seeing it.

    This engadget article lists what Sprint has in store for Q3. No webos.

    This is true. The last Sprint roadmap that leaked did not have the EVO 3D or the Motorola Photon. In the end the roadmaps are a very general guide to upcoming releases but not a definitive guide to what a carrier will or will not offer.
  17. #738  
    None of those phones in the 'leaked' guide were surprises. I think what we saw wasn't terribly confidential.

    just as a hopeful reminder there is one consistent rumor. PRE 3 on Sprint after initial release, or late August/earlySept. This is what I was told by a Sprint store manager last month. "Sprint opted out of the initial release but will have it Sept." I have seen similar rumors on here 5 times now.

    No Big Red 4 me. I thought they were going to waterboard me when I tried to return a wireless USB within the 72 hours. Held hostage in BBuy talking with Verizon. No thanks to that or the tier.

    Also, if you have ANY problems with your cell carrier DO NOT hesitate to file a complaint with your state PUC. A whole new attitude will emerge within 48 hours.

    Yep, the only reason I'm still on Sprint is that the AT&T Pre3 hasn't launched yet.
