    What I was thinking, the bad that would happen is if they released it too soon, and people got so fed up with it crashing and hanging that their frustration would lead them to actually want an iPhone.

    I'll wait for the final product release regardless of the date and what Apple does.

    I'm starting to wonder if even they have a clue!

    And some of us Iphone people that left are returning for the Pre.

    Stop sounding like idiots saying people are suddenly going to leave in droves for the Iphone when they have had 2 years to do such a thing.

    All I know is that I'm tired of seeing the Sprint 4g commercials with Pre eye-candy and I can't get one.
    The value of knowledge is not in its possession, but in its use.

    I think the Pre might come out on the following dates:
    5/17
    5/24
    5/31
    6/7
    6/14
    6/21
    6/28

    There, I got all the sundays thru the end of June covered.

    What about 05/10? Mother's day. What better gift to give your mom than a Pre?

    Good point.



    I don't think I am representative of most Sprint customers, but here is my profile for what it's worth:


    I have been on Sprint since I bought my Treo 650...about three years ago. I don't have coverage issues and the price is nice. Data plan is inexpensive. 3G coverage serves my area well. All-in-all, I am happy.

    I never liked the iPhone. It's UI is sexy as hell, but my Treo 700p destroys it from a functional point of view. I'll spare you why I feel that way...I have posted it before. That said, I understand why the iPhone sells well. Most consumers are not as tech savvy as we are and they fall for glitter and sparkle. They also need the hand-holding that an integrated app store provides. Additionally, they are also very brand-aware...perhaps even brand self-conscious. Great, but that's not me.


    Thus, I stayed with Sprint after my contract expired while I waited patiently for Android-based handsets. When the G1 came out, I was somewhat disappointed with that first incarnation....with both the handset and the OS...so I decided to sit back and wait and see what happened in the Android space. Had it been better, I would have jumped to T-Mobile. Frankly, I think all carriers have issues...and I like GSM-based phones anyway.


    Fast forward to January and CES and my Android lust is replaced by Pre lust...and I have been waiting patiently since.

    Will I get a Pre? Who knows. That depends on what happens in the next month or so. I was convinced that I was buying three G-1s for my family and backed away at the last minute because, in part, of the Pre...and may do the same with the Pre. That all depends on what other handset and mobile OS vendors do in the interim...as well as how well Palm pulls off this release.

    I like Palm. Yes, they are frustrating, but I have had a Palm-based PDA in one form another for ten years...and a Treo for more than three..and they have really helped me. That's what I want from such a device - functionality...not flash. So far, Palm has done well for me...even if their products are long in the tooth. That said, Palm is not a religion for me. I will buy the best device for me, my family, and our lifestyle.

    Are carrier's an issue? Well, to a point. I need a decently priced and flexible family plan. That also factors in for me. I suppose we'll see...but I will certainly hold a Pre in my hand and use it before I make my final decision.

    $0.02
    IIIx -> Tungsten T -> Treo 650 -> Treo 700p -> Launch day Pre

    If they Pre was coming out in June why would there be a vacation freeze for May? Doesn't make sense.
    Palm Vx -> Treo 600 -> Treo 700p -> Centro -> Pre (Launch Phone 06/06/09) -> AT&T Pre Plus with Sprint EVDO swap -> Samsung Epic 4G w/ Froyo

    I had forgotten about the vacation freeze! Make sense we will see this phone very soon!

    That's cool. There was someone else here - I think yesterday - who said they were in a similar situation and were tempted by G1s. They said they had 7 lines total and were on SERO or some other dirt cheap ancient Sprint plan that no longer exists.

    I priced it out, and you'd pay about $60 more a month on T-mobile with all of those G1s, but go without services like Sprint Nav and Sprint TV.

    Now, maybe those services aren't a value add for you. They are for me, but I can understand that not everyone uses them. But if price is a factor, $720 less total cost of ownership (TCO) per year is a pretty big differentiator.

    I know that document made its way around the internet but I don't remember reading that it was actually confirmed.

    does anyone have any more info on this?

    I've got some more yadda yadda yadda, but other than that?



    no.

    you're confusing in that vacation freeze = phone launching month.

    Just because there's a vacation freeze, doesn't necessarily mean the phone is launching that particular month. It could mean a variety of reasons such as training, sales meetings on quotas, clearing out inventory, various assesments...etc. Doesn't mean its not a month for the launch, but it just doesn't necessarily mean it will launch.

    Granted that they were just reporting on the rumors, but everywhere I read said it was a rare vacation freeze, as in sprint almost never does that. But who knows?

There are hundreds of threads on this forum that don't interest me. What do I do? I choose to ignore them. Maybe it's time to do the same. Until Sprint gives us an official release date, expect rumors from Palm fan sites to be reported on whether you make snide comments in the thread or not.
    Ooookay.....

    Nobody is complaining that you posted what you posted. The complaints are about it being a new thread when there is no reason yet given why it couldn't be in the predictions and speculations sticky.
