    Would you suggest someone buy one now?

    I just did, off ebay,for 150.

    webos just works...for me.
    physical keyboards just work...for me
    There are enough apps...for me. Though I cheat a little in that I have an ipod touch tethered to my pre to make up for apps we don't have.

    I have looked at other devices but can't just yet atleast pull the trigger on palm and webos.

    I'm thinking of buying a Pixi+ and a Pre2 to complement my collection as well. I just feel like I might need something bigger than my Veer, but smaller than my Touchpad. I like the size of the Pre, but after having used the Veer for some time, I don't like the feel of the original Pre any more... I want a glass display, I want a smooth surface all around, I want more MHz! The Pre2 offers all that over the original Pre Though I'll probably won't like the keyboard. The Veer's keyboard is a class of it's own, even if it is small.

    forgot to mention- I coulda purchased the pre2 from vzw for $5 but had to use a new yr contract to do so.
    kinda silly to lock myself in for 2 yrs at this point. Purchasing new off ebay allows me to save my upgrade for when a compelling device comes out or I tire of webOs.

    I currently have a "feature" phone and need one I can read attachments to emails. Thought I may try the Pre2 especially if I can tether from free on it and bypass the $20 verizon fee.

    Currently have a Pre + with Verizon. Picked up an Unlocked pre 2 and a Verizon Pre 2 from HP during the fire sale. Activating the unlocked Pre 2 on T-mobile this week. Plan to activate the Verizon Pre 2 when the Pre + dies.

    yes.

    pre 2 probably is the best you can get for now. It sure can last at least 2 years and see if webOS smartphone will be picked up by somebody else.

    the main concern is the profile. I hope hp won't turn off server in the near future.

    but hey, $150 isn't expensive. If you go with TMobile $50 /mo plan. You can save back that $$$ in half a year.

    The big problem with VZW right now is their new data plans if you do anything to get a new or updated contract.

    I will stick with unlimited for $30 as long as I can and switch phones as often as they will let me.
    PalmV - Kyo 6035 - 7135 - 650 - 700wx - pre+clocked - pre+2.1 mod - and no Pre3 time to get a Pre2?

    June 19 - 8:45am - early order Touchpad. Love it! Used fire sale refund to get another. Rest paid for all accessories. Trying to teach the wife to love it.

    support WebOs internals!

    I got my Pre2 from Verizon and extended my contract. I'm still at $30 unlimited. They said I was grandfathered into that price and would continue to be at the $30 unlimited unless I downgrade to a dumb phone and then upgrade later.

    I just ordered a Pre2 (VZ) from eBay - obviously no contract.

    The question is: do I activate it as-is on VZW and deal with the loss of MHS, or do I just radio swap and tell nobody.

    I picked up a Pre 2 on ebay for $150 shipped as a backup to my Thunderbolt and to complement my Touchpad. And also I wanted to see how WebOS was in phone form.

    Forget MHS and just use FreeTether.

    Thanks. I was leaning towards that just to avoid the loss of warranty.

    nice. It says auction ended though?? I have 18hrs left on the phone I'm bidding on. If I lose and yours is still available I'll pick it up for sure.
