    3 reasons:
    Keyboard, multitasking, copy paste...

    Do files get embarrassed when they get unzipped?

    ATT wanted a $500 'deposit' and Sprint wanted $50. No contest!

    Well, because my treo 755p does everything I need for my business. And faster.

    I ponied-up the cash to give the Pre a test spin to see if it could work as well. It doesn't for me, but I'll leave it on the shelf a few more days to see if they can fix the problems.
    My PDA history: ditched pre and upgraded back to the Treo 755p, Palm PRE, Treo 755p, 650, 600, TMobile Pocket PC, Visor Platinum, Kyocera Palmphone, Treo 300, Visor Silver, Ipaq H3600, Orig Handspring, and various and sundry other early iterations of PDA's.

    You really don't have to be anti-iPhone to be pro-Pre. Both are really great phones and have their own advantages. Calling the iPhone a glorified iPod or a toy is pretty naive and/or obnoxious thing to say.
    I agree that you don't have to be anti-iPhone, but I also agree that I'm naive. I never saw the iPhone as anything other than an entertainment device attached to a phone and whenever I asked people who had one to tell me about the applications they were using, it was always games.

    Recently, a lady I Bible study with did show me a Bible application, but she couldn't switch between different versions of the Bible like you can in Laridian's myBible. Since she's always seen me review the different versions, she's searching for websites that are mobile friendly to get that same flexibility. It just seemed like a lot of work when my Treo, that's been out for a decade, has more user friendly apps then a phone that has a newer platform and is going on it's third generation.

    As far as the question goes, it just didn't seem like the iPhone had what I needed whenever I spoke to iPhone users and it wasn't worth switching companies to pursue it and discover if their answers were erroneous.

    Now that I see a Kindle application is available for the iPhone, it's getting closer to what I would accept in a combination PDA + Phone device, but by the time iPhone gets there, the Pre will have everything that I want.

    I actually like the iPhone and Pre just about equally. Both phones have their positives and negatives.

    I just utterly hate and detest AT&T. They're more expensive and their data network is nowhere near as good. I was very happy to finally see a phone that fits my needs on Sprint and got the Pre only a day after release. Not having to move to the Death Star in order to get a decent and fun phone was awesome.

    That said, the Pre has room for improvement, but I have no doubt it'll be improved as time goes on. Most of the issues are software afterall.

    I hope Sprint eventually offers tethering, but it's not a dealbreaker for me. If I need to be online while I'm away for work reasons they'll lend me a Verizon EVDO card.

    I wish I didn't see so much antagonism between the iPhone camp and the Pre camp. They're both awesome. Competition is good for both platforms.

    Been with Sprint since 1994. Had good service, good support. I spend 3-4 days a week, trying to get ATT to admit they made mistakes with out clients Internet connections, rather not give ATT any of my personal money.

    Yup! Gotta love competition. I'm hoping that means Palm will release a new webOS update in the near future with bugfixes!

    I also continue to see the iPhone as primarily an entertainment device. Sure there is a version of HanDBase for it, though not a robust one. Sure it does email, but not as well as the others do. It does handle spread sheets, but only now and the implimentation really excels at its appearance, functionality not quite there but it looks good. My friends that sleep with their iPhones love the music and the looks, they back off a bit though when asked about resets.

    They look at my Touch Pro, play with it and quietly hand it back while looking sadly at their noise machine.

    want: the proven truly fastest 3G (and first 4G) network
    don't want: restriction
    don't want: Apple tax effect
