    ^ Yes it is my first. And I'm sorry to say but until the Pre I never ever paid any attention to Palms products. I mean their own OS looks absolutely primitive and kind of limiting. In addition, all their smartphones (which a lot of youse seem to have) were just a brink-and-a-half size-wise.

    In fact, I don't think I would have known so much of their previous phones that I do today if it wasn't for the Pre.

    Funny - plam had a bard rep based on looks.
    actually , despite the OS ugliness, it worked great. very common sense. and the TREO bulkiness made them sturdy phones that could take a beating and keep on going.

    of course, if anyone doesn't think the pre was abolutly needed u'd been nuts. the P- OS had to go

    Please note: My spelling sucks and I'm to lazy to check it.

    You also have to consider the time frame when these Palm phones came out. They're old. The 755p is 2 years old (in May? Not sure). The features such as threaded SMS which is still a very limited feature on most phones, email and web were way ahead of their time and I'm sure if someone approached you with a 755p two years ago, you would have been very impressed. Unfortunately Palm's initial answer was the Centro which didn't improve the OS at all just came in smaller hardware. The Pre is a mix of new OS and hardware which will make it that much more exciting.

    I agree also that the OS worked wonderful. Its still very fast compared to other phones and customization is something that other than Apple, was only available on Windows Mobile. Palm always had more applications than Win Mob so it was the primary choice for people who planned on using 3rd party apps.

    The pre will be my first...I have never really been interested in Palm devices that much or even mobile phones in general but the pre really made me take a good look at these devices and got me hooked and the pre. I have been an at&t costumer for about 5 or 6 years and the pre is making me make the jump over to Sprint, I can't wait.

    Nope..700p was my first one. Have had it two years..still on the first one and works like a charm. Probably going to keep both the 700 and the Pre because I think excel will be a lot easier on the 700.

    The Pre will be my first.

    I had some old Kyocera flip phone, then a Sanyo M7900 flip phone, followed by the Samsung A900. The first pda is my current phone, the Sprint Touch.

    I have been with Sprint for years, mostly because I am happy with their rates and service. As long as they keep doing what they have been doing, I will stay with them and base my phone choices on what Sprint has to offer.

    I'm surprised the results aren't more heavily slanted to previous users. I'm also surprised at how many some people have had. Me:

    Handspring Visor Neo.
    Palm Treo 650.
    End of list.

    Yup, that it. And I'm actually still on the 650. I never wanted to sign up for another two years to get essentially the same thing, and their next-gen OS was always supposedly right over the horizon. I've actually been holding out for Cobalt, then their Linux OS, and now WebOS that long. I seriously considered leaving a few times, but it would be such a PITA with all the apps and data I absolutely rely on.

    Treo 650
    Treo 700p

    Never owned a Palm device. Been with WinMo since having smartphones.

    Pre will be my first, barring any silly anti-SERO policies.

    ...and quite a few since then!

    No.
    treo 90
    treo 300
    treo 600
    treo 650
    treo 700p
    treo 755p

    Pre will be my 7th (although technically, the 90, 300 and 600 were Handspring products.) Whats really interesting is that I've been on a roll with Sprint since i got my original 300 in October of 2003 for free after rebates. My 600 was also free as warranty replacement for the 300, my 650 was free as a swap for the 600, same for the 700 and 755 too! Ive always carried insurance and extended warranty so I've never actually had to purchase I just wait for the phone to wear out or break and I get upgraded. This brings up an interesting question. Since the 755 is now EOL, what will the insurance company replace it with once their stock of 755 is depleted?

    Nope.

    Palm, I had the IIIc, TX, and still using my Centro.

    But Palm OS wise it's IIIc, CLIE T665, CLIE TJ-37, TX, Centro.
