Yes, I'm considering that as an option. I figure after the Pre 3 is released, the Pre 2 will drop considerably in price.

So, I'm a little squeamish about it, if you know what I mean. I wouldn't risk yanking my existing comms board out of my plus and putting it in a third device. So I'd probably have to find both a pre minus and Pre 2 on Craig's list and/or Ebay, then go to work on the hardware.
I've heard for the pre minus, it's better to go with Craig's list, since it's local. You can meet the seller at a Sprint store and have them activate it on the spot. That way you know you're getting a valid phone.
The thing is, when I took the plunge on the plus, I figured Android would be my fall back. Not a good fall back. From what I see on my wife's phone, I'm not in the least excited about being forced on to that platform. For what I do with my smartphone, webOS is far superior.
