    It's Mid-September and you're looking for a new contract with Sprint. The Palm Pre's updates has been good but not what you expected. Along with the Palm Pre, the only plan you're able to have it on is the Everything Data Plus Plan or above; which includes.

    Palm Pre: $199 after rebates.

    Plan; Everything Data Plus
    500 Minutes
    Unlimited Mobile to Mobile
    Unlimited Text Messaging
    Unlimited Data
    Including all the basic options
    at the total of $59.99 excluding taxes and discounts.

    HTC Touch Pro 2 has recently been release about a week ago. Assuming the price tag for a new contract would be:

    Price: $350

    Plan; SERO
    500 Minutes
    Unlimited Mobile to Mobile
    Unlimited Text Messaging
    Unlimited Data (really limited)
    Including all the basic options
    at the total of $30.00 excluding taxes and discounts.

    Considering each phone's ups and downs, the OS and it's features. Which one would you go with?

    I used to have an HTC Diamond w/ the SERO 500 plan, I upgraded to the Palm Pre on the 59.99 Everything Plan. I thought I might regret it, but I don't. The phone is amazing... I didn't want to wait for the new HTC Phones simply because of Synergy on WebOS.

    btw, are you sure you can keep SERO on the Touch Pro 2, main reason i left that plan was because i wasn't going to be able to upgrade to any of the nicer, newer phones that will come out in the future...

    There's still a slight possibility that you can keep your current plan with the TP2 although they're mostly rumors. I know what you mean though, I've had my hands on the Palm Pre for quite sometime now and it's amazing.

    But considering my life financially, it would make more sense to go with the old SERO plan regardless of what phone I have. I just wanted to see what the majority here thought. Obviously, there was no question here (:

    Oddly enough, the same question asked over at sprint users (think it was sprint users) came up with the HTC pro2 as the leader.... [edit] It is here: http://www.sprintusers.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=188287 . The pro2 is winning by 70% at the time of this post. lol

    I think it depends on the crowd and how the question is asked.

    No way I can deal with the pre... even if it were allowed on SERO.... I thought it would be a much bigger device... but that is personal taste...

    I'm waiting for pro2... hopefully it is okay... At this point, I've considered dumpting SERO and moving on to another carrier if I can't get a good phone on sprint... with discounts, I can still get my bill around to what I pay on sero anyway ($50). Will have lost minutes... no biggie.

    Ahh, that thread. I've seen it before. You're right regarding the type of questions I ask to a specific crowd. Since this is a Pre forum, I wouldn't expect less from the current results from the poll.

    I'm tempted to go test out the T-Mobile version of the TP2, maybe get a feel of the phone. I've always admired the more weight on phones, gives a better quality feel in my book.

    What kind of SERO plan are you currently on? The 500 or 1250? If you decide to get off that plan, I wouldn't mind taking it off your hands if something can be agreed on. If you don't mind, can you post the specifics here if you're interested in getting off the plan?

    Yes, it is the 1250... I'm not sure what I'm going to do at this point.... I need to get my treo pro on ebay though... either way it is gone.

    I have yet to play with a pro2 in a store... but after the pics of it next to the iphone, I wanted it (or at least willing to give it a major chance).

    Around the same time I played with a pre... mmmm.... then again, I sometimes hate the keyboard of the Treo Pro... when typing a lot, the treo pro's keyboard is too small... so, personal preference. Plus, I wanted something with a lot of space to deal with some of my excel spreadsheets... I sync using microsoft mesh... etc...

    I have other reasons for wanting windows mobile... lol... nothing majorly wrong with the pre from what I could see. I might consider a ver 2 of the pre, if on different hardware.

    Yeah that's what I was debating with myself. Quality wise, I'd go with the TP2 hands down. Software.. I'm pretty use to the Pre. Even when putting my hands on any iPhone I tend to use the Pre's gestures on an iPhone LOL.

    If anything, let me know your feedback on the TP2 and possibly keep me updated on your choices, I'd definitely keep it in mind.

    I'd wait for the HTC Hero in October, see how it is, and if I could get it with SERO. If not, I'd get the Touch.

    Hmm, a scenario for the Pre which might be meaningless, vs. a brand new phone that we a) don't really know much about and b) will have just been released so you won't really know the pluses and minuses of that device, either.

    What a waste of forum space.

    If people weren't so quick to jump on the newest device without figuring out what it's flaws are, maybe the phone companies would stop releasing beta code as if it were a finished product.

    Based on what you wrote, it sounds like you no longer have the old Sero plan (because you now have a Pre). If that's the case, then your entire question is meaningless, because you won't be able to go back. The old Sero plan is no longer available, so once you give it up it's gone forever.

    While I agree that the post was "what if", I don't think it warranted your response...

    You come off like a real ******* (starts with an "a" and ends with an "e"). ROFL

    Many are waiting for the Hero... I've seen the first gen devices in action.. spent a day with one earlier this year. I was not too impressed, but that was first generation... Actually, I was more impressed with the videos leading up to the OS vs. the actual device. Normally this is the other way around...

    It is going to be interesting seeing how the OS works in a couple of years... can't wait...

    Google, WinMob 7, and Apple... lol...

    I had the chance to play with one the day it was released. I normally hate "virtual keyboard" devices, but I really liked the Hero. Don't get me wrong, I love the Pre, but due to it not working on SERO, I am doomed to love it from afar.

    Guess what? I don't give a d**n what you think.

    The level of silly speculation is beginning to outweigh useful information. Partly, this is Palm's fault for leaving out so many features, and failing to communicate their plans in any way at all. But that's still no excuse for the rampant fantasies that masquerade as useful threads. No one knows what the Pre will have in the timeframe mentioned, and we know even less about how well the TP2 will work.

    Comparing two unknowns produces exactly zero useful information.

    No sir. It's a waste of forum space if it wasn't being used. If you've done your research and wanted to go "jump on the newest device" and figure out it's flaws, I'd recommend you check of the TP2 in it's T-Mobile outfit. It's technically going to be the same release for Sprint but in Sprint clothing and plans. Thanks.

    In reading howard forums (hate that spammy site, but whatever), the majority seem to love the TP2...

    Hopefully the sprint version may have a 3.5 jack (I doubt if I'll use it though... but just in case..).

    Hopefully the t-mobile reviews won't be far off the mark for sprint's version.

    Nothing beats my Palm Pre with the Simply Everything plan (unlimited minutes, texts & data). It's a powerhouse and I won't be looking for anything else.

    The problem with it though is the device does not fit the typical needs of the typical business user. Those of us using devices in a work environment often need to be able to edit/create documents and spread sheets and as we all know, the Pre is not there at this time. That is my problem with the Pre.

    The Verizon and Sprint version along with future models I believe will have the 3.5mm head phone jacks.

    Sprint HTC Touch Pro2 shows up sporting a 3.5mm headphone jack

    Well we are not to the half yet but it's 34 to 2.

    I think the Touch got lucky getting the safety...

    This about when I start checking to see what else is on.
