    Little did Palm know that brett328 controls the entire smartphone industry and his one choice to switch to Blackberry will take them down. You should have listened to brett328 while you had the chance Palm!!!!

    Bargaining: Yeah, but if I get rid of the Pre before my 30 days is up and get the iPhone 3gs, then I'll be able to tell everybody that I tried and the iphone is better - for everybody!! Just don't let me fall any more in love with this Pre!

    Depression: How come nobody likes me on PreCentral?! What's a "troll"?

    Acceptance: Fine! I'm leaving! I miss that cool compass app anyway!

    Let's be understanding with all our iPhone friends, especially those 100,000 or so who got the phones that heat up to Death Valley temps. Let us see them off as friends.

    As we say in Hawaii: "Aloha! Welcome to Hawaii! Don't forget to leave!"
    Or maybe you could realize that some smartphones are better suited for individual people for a variety of reasons and that people probably wouldn't return a better phone for a worse phone so they could tell people on the internet that they did...

    Really expected a more mature device knowing how important the success of this phone was to Palm & Sprint. I am on my 2nd Pre due to connectivity issues. I still get dropped calls, and the slider wobble is scaring the crap out of me. 2 years with this device? It'll never last. The lack of acknowledgement from Palm regarding these build quality issues, and the end of my 30 day trial won't allow me to hang out any more waiting for word. Add to all this the fact that I cant download a lotus spreadsheet off the phone after I e-mailed it to myself makes this a killer.
    ...
    For all those who may want to flame me, go ahead. I put my money up for this device, it just wasn't ready. I won't torture myself with delusions about the Pre. If Palm survives, then I'll be ready and waiting when they figure out the hardware part of the equation.
    ...
    I suppose what you're really saying is that "it just wasn't ready" for you, unless you're projecting your wants, needs, and disappointments onto the hundreds of thousands of users that are satisifed...

    I tend to agree with the others in this thread. You folks that insist on starting these long goodbyes really do seem to be egocentric to a large degree.

    It's a shame the phone didn't work for you. Find one that does. It's working great for me.

    I feel like you're taking a step back with the BB Tour. If you're going to switch to Verizon, then I would get a phone like the LG EnV Touch, or something that can rival the Pre.

    I'm just saying this to prevent you from being disappointed with another phone and leaving a good-bye message on another forum for other poor saps.

    I think a better song would be, "Come on Eileen" by Dexy's Midnight Runners... Admit it, now that song is stuck in your head!! Too rah loo rah, too rah loo rah yay!
    Palm III -> Palm m500 -> Zire 71 -> Zire 72 -> Treo 700p -> Palm Pre Minus -> TWO Touchpads 16gb -. and unfortunately, a Motorola Photon 4G...

    Exactly what I Was wondering. The tour is hitting sprint at the same time as verizon.....

    hmmm.... very interesting.. Paying a lot more for service on the same phone, when the Sprint version can roam on the same towers. Very interesting indeed....

    Something rotten in denmark here.

    theres no reason to go to verizon just to get the tour, when sprint is going to get it at almost the same time. if your on sprint and want the tour, just stay with sprint

    Well this is my first experience with Sprint, and I've had more dropped calls in the last month than I have had with Verizon in many years. I am assuming it is the device, since it seems to be a widespread issue with other Sprint Pre adopters. But still, why risk it. Add to that, the fact that adding a line back to my family plan in Verizon is cheaper than keeping the individual plan in Sprint, and I think you can see why.


    Now call off the Kubla. The rest of you 15 year olds, keep flaming. I love to read them!

    To inject common sense into this discussion. You people have such a disbelief that he legimately disliked the Pre that some are accusing him of buying it for the explicit purpose of returning it later and declaring the iPhone better on an internet forum even though the Pre, like a new puppy, won him over while he had it. C'mon.

    Hmmm... Kublai Khan is pleased with your answer, and has called off hit Mongolian charge to your heart center.

    Good luck with the Tour! A fine BlackBerry to be sure.

    But why exactly do you need to do that? Even if you HAD more common sense than the rest of us here, why do you feel the need to spend hours on end in a forum for a device you don't own correcting us dumb-asses? If we want to live in this little fantasy world about the Pre, what's it to you?

    The minute I start feeling the need to go to an iPhone or BB forum and hang out there "injecting common sense" I'm going to find a therapist.

    Wait... where was that post?

    I don't think anyone here is disputing the fact that the Pre did not suit the OP. Most people are just expressing their opinion that they don't care. So far the only thing you've 'injected' into the discussion is the question, "why are you here?"

    I don't think that your thinking is right on this one. It is just that when people come in to the main Pre forum with a story about how they want to drop the Pre for something else, we just feel it is out of place.

    It doesn't make sense to come in with this information when you are just posting your opinion. You feel that the Iphone or whatever other device is better than the Pre, well some of us do not agree.

    Legitimate posts against the Pre, I don't mind. However, when you feel it necessary to come here and post that you bought the Iphone and returned your Pre, what possible good is that post?
