The real problem for everyone here is that Sprint knows that for every 100 e-mails or phone calls, only a certain number of folks are going to leave. For those of us leaving (or that have left) at this point there are fewer than the amount of people saying they can't/won't leave Sprint for any number of reasons. Carrying WebOS is NOT going to be a huge windfall for Sprint, and not carrying WebOS most likely won't result in a mass exodus.
Sadly lots of folks haven't done the math or calculated current Sprint plans or are grandfathered into crazy low cost plans, I honestly believe there are more people that could actually afford to leave Sprint that still think Sprint is the cheapest (I know this is not true for EVERY Sprint user). As someone who has been with Sprint for years, and thought we wouldn't be able to get the same deal elsewhere, I will be saving money going to AT&T (and no longer have to deal with carrier locked phones as we do with CDMA).
