    If I had wanted an iPhone, I would have gotten one years ago. I never wanted one. I got the Pre because I wanted it, and it has turned out to be the perfect phone/OS for me. I don't hate the iPhone, nor am I blind to the Pre's issues. But I wouldn't get an iPhone on Sprint, and will continue to use my Pre until HP/Palm puts out new hardware that I like better.

    People who love Apple/iPhone will insist that it is the best and that people who don't are lying. People who hate Apple/iPhone will insist that it is horrible and that people who love it are deluding themselves. Neither side is correct. Each of us finds the phone/OS that is best for us, and no one else's opinion is going to change that (at least for those of us who think about/research our choices).

    I don't like a lot of how Apple is run, and how closed it is, but there are plenty of people who don't seem to mind.

    In other words, can we all just accept that each of us has our own ideas of what we want/need? Constructive and rational discussion about what we want and why is great; we all learn things about the various OS's and each other. Insulting each other's choices, however, is just lame, and not particularly fun to read.

    lol I don't give a damn if 100% say they want one. What I AM trying to prove is that your smoking some good **** when you said your iPad can do more **** then an Netbook rofl.

    I'd buy an iPhone, but I'd never switch to Sprint to do so.

    That's the problem with absolutist statements: they are almost always oh so wrong. Of course an ipad isn't capable of more than a netbook. Well, wait a minute...if you took the battery out of the netbook and didn't plug it into an outlet, then his statement would be true. But he didn't qualify his claim, so....

    There is no way that I would switch from a Palm/HP/WebOS product to an apple product. However, if Sprint dropped support for Palm, I would drop Sprint in a heartbeat. Don't get me wrong, I'm a Sprint loyalist, but they'll have to support my products.

    Two words why I wouldn't consider an iphone even if on Sprint....

    virtual keyboard

    I think reasons for the iphone being successful extend beyond just good marketing. It's actually a well made device with the best touch experience out there. I didn't get a Pre because I wanted an iphone. I got a Pre because I wanted a Pre.

    I would give it a look see. With me, it's the provider I'm sticking with. Everything else is hardware/software and subject to change. The main reason I haven't considered an iPhone is that it isn't available on Sprint. The Pre was the best phone available on Sprint at the time when my wife and I were ready to upgrade.

    At this point I'm almost certainly going to be upgrading to the Sprint HTC EVO 4g in June. Maybe if HP/Palm can get it's act together, I'll see what (if anything) they have to offer in 2011 or 2012.

    I would have to buy three of them for my kids. The wife would probaly want one too, so make that four. Her Blackberry is getting old and she hates my Pre. I however would stick with Palm or if by the end of the year, Plam does not have a new phone, I'll probably go with an Android phone.

    As far as arguing about WiMax or LTE, Sprint has already said that the hardware is identicle and the only diference is the software. So, if this is true, a phone built for Sprints WiMax could also be updated to work on LTE.

    I came from AT&T to get the Pre. I think that pretty much says it all.

    Maybe the iPad doesn't do everything a netbook does, but for what I used my netbook for, the iPad does these things far better.

    Fair enough statement.

    How's this for irony? I dropped the Pre for a Hero as soon as I could because Palm completely changed its focus from making productivity smartphones to entertainment smartphones. I've been quite happy with Android since then, but I kept the Pre as a backup phone and to play with each successive webOS update. Then I bought an iPad 3G. Now I use the iPad for my productivity/PDA needs and I'm thinking of switching back to webOS (which I swore I'd never do.) Crazy, huh?

    Be careful around these parts .. people will tell you you're crazy and the iPad isn't capable of such things.

    Just from using the Ipod Touch, if the Iphone would have came to Sprint before the "magical" OS that is WebOS, I would have jumped on it. Now, there is no chance that I would get the Iphone on Sprint. I've been spoiled and I'm even hesitant about the Evo, but I'm willing to give it a try since my life is so tied up in the Google ecosystem.

    Especially since it's looking a little more likely that the next iPhone could land on Sprint.

    i wanted an iphone originally but it had two things i considered flaws, no physical keyboard and the biggest was price of carriers. i just couldn't afford at&t. Bottom line though is if iphone was on sprint i'd have a iphone though. I got a pre as a iphone substitute not because i have something against apple. But early on i thought the pre would have major app support and i liked the look of the o.s. i honestly didn't care that much about stuff like synergy and multitasking. i wanted an iphone mostly for the media and apps. must of my uses for a phone are music, texting, apps, and a camera. i like the pre originally but the lack of apps mainstream apps disappointed me and i had issues with the keyboard not working. So over time i decided i could live with a virtual keyboard and i'd rather have more app choice so my next phone is an iphone regardless of network but preferably on sprint as i'm still on my pre minus on sprint.

    For many synergy an multitasking and the os are most important. i'm a different animal. i more on the multimedia and apps. i love my ipod. it's the device i use most of all. plus i no longer want a physical keyboard. So if it comes to sprint i'll be in line the first day or i'll be pre ordering. If they don't come to sprint i'll switch carriers and bite the bullet on my bill because at this point i know what i want and i no longer feel like waiting for a product that doesn't fit my needs.

    for many the pre and webos fits their needs. i think that's great and people should buy what they want. It doesn't satisfy my wants or needs so i'll be switching regardless of what carrier it comes to. But i'll be really happy if it comes to sprint.
