    It is my understanding now, that I have officially lost all wireless phone logic and reasoning.......

    I had an upgrade ready to go on Verizon (actually I have been sitting on it for a little while).

    Fundage is quite low in my household, so here is what I did:

    1. "Buy" new phone (free RAZR M) and pay the $30 upgrade fee.
    2. Sell brand new phone for cash.
    3. Order Pre 3 from Ebay with earnings (doing a little better than breaking even).

    That is how I solved the riddle of wanting a Pre 3 for over a year.
    I "burned" an upgrade....kind of.

    And the craziest thing of all......I felt compelled to do so BECAUSE of this "impending WebOS doom".
    What kind of sense does THAT make???

    Hearing all of the doom and gloom made me want it more!

    Can't wait to fire it up!

    I just got an iPhone 4 for development purposes and put it side by side w/the Pre 3. All this time I hadn't really realized that the iPhone screen is the same size as the Pre 3. I love my Pre 3!

    It's funny that you mention this, I was looking at that same very thing just yesterday.

    I was surprised TBH, I always thought the iPhone 4 screen would be bigger.

    Just another reason to justify my illogic

    If you had unlimited data on your account - dumb, dumb, dumb. You should have just saved up a bit more money and just bought the HP Pre 3 on eBay outright without buying any other device. By using your upgrade, you lost unlimited data. Additionally, you had to pay the $30 upgrade fee, which you wouldn't have had to do if you just bought from eBay and did nothing else.

    In real world looks: yes. But on paper the Pre 3 is bigger.
    iPhone 4: 3.5"
    Pre 3: 3.65"

    Haven't had unlimited data for a while, wish I still did though.

    By the way, got the phone in yesterday and I am really enjoying this vs. Pre2.

    From what I recall a couple years back, yeah. AT&T and VZW were halting at 5GB and T-Mo was knocking people to 2G. Sprint had (and still has) truly unlimited, though their 3G is worth now, imho.

    I have both an iPhone 4 and a Pre 3. The iPhone 4 is a taller device while the Pre 3 is wider device. By contrast, the Pre 3 has a "taller" screen while the iPhone 4 has a "wider" screen.
