    I'll be switching. I waited on line for the first gen and then updated to the second gen. It's become incredibly buggy. From day to day my usage stays the same but the battery life is all over the place. I'll try the Pre for a month and if I like it i'll port my number over. If not I'll probably look into something else.

    And as I just learned, if you have poor Sprint reception at home -- or none at all -- you can get an Airave mini cell tower to hang off of broadband.

    Downside to Airave is that you still have to pay for a broadband connection. It's odd there is a monthly charge for Airave as well when you are helping them with their coverage. But it's at least an option.

    We'll have to see how WebOS development compares to iPhone but the potential is much greater for WebOS because the apps won't be under tight control as with iPhone. Apple chooses what _they_ 'allow' you to run on an iPhone. Imagine if they did that with Mac. They have become the very fascist authoritarians they chastised in those 1984 commercials.

    Looks like WebOS will be much more open. Palm may choose what apps go into their own store but you'll be able to put any one on your phone via 3rd party methods w/out having to hack it.

    I wonder if I have a good argument to get the fee waived: Sprint's maps say that I live in a Good reception zone, but I'm not getting good reception -- service they claim to provide is not provided.

    I sold my 1st gen iphone on ebay for 199, and Im switching to the pre for free. I was using it on TMobile for the past year and they are cheap but have terrible coverage. After watching the Pre its seems like the next evolution of the iphone.

    It actually makes the iPhone look like a dinosaur to me, the pre is far more intuitive especially with the gestures and having true multitasking.

    Hell it took apple 2 years to do MMS and cut and paste.

    I really want to switch to the Pre, but I will not be able to since the Pre's "universal" search will not lookup calendar items.

    ^Until there 'is an app for that'.

    Will iPhone 3.0 do that? I know the current O/S doesn't search anything except contacts...

    From what I've heard, it shouldn't be too difficult to convince them. In any event, what's the downside - they say no? doesn't hurt to ask!

    Yes. 3.0 searches calendar, applications, memos, contacts, email metadata, and the everything on the iPod section of the phone from one interface.

    I'll have both to compare for 30 days. I'll keep one and either sell or return the other.

    Odd. At my biz all we have are Sprint data cards and a smattering of AfroBerrys, WinMo Treos and Nextels. I'd say 75% Sprint and the rest are the other carriers. The lone iPhone ranger is usually on wifi or 2G cause of the usual (3G is spotty).

    We do just fine. You probably don't know that many "consultants, business reps, mission-critical people". It's okay.

    I just read ( cant believe I didnt know this ) that you have 30 days and if you dont like it, you can return it for full money back. So if I get the Pre and I dont like it or Sprint, I will just go back to my iPhone at AT&T

    I'd take ignorance over patronizing condescension any day.

    I plan on getting the Pre and the new iPhone. The Pre is not on the same level as the iPhone for my media needs. No matter what, the next few weeks shgould be great. The Pre release and the iPhone 3 being revealed.

    I had my Iphone from November last year to this month. I kept my Sprint line open and I did the old school carry a phone(sprint phone voice only plan) and PDA(Iphone 3G data only plan). It was cool but I lusted for carrying one device. I really couldn't have the best of both worlds since ATT's network was semi-crappy but Sprint had lame PDA phones. When I had a firm date on the Pre I quickly sold my Iphone and probably won't look back.

    That and it looks like the GSM version is still months away. I know you only do GSM phones, right?
