    I opened a new Sprint account on June 6th to buy the Pre. I kept my Verizon account open over the weekend just in case Sprint service didn't work in my house, commute, workplace or out by my folks in Indiana.

    I just ported my number over from Verizon yesterday and closed my account. I am very happy with Sprint so far - service has been great, especially 3G. And the call quality on the Pre itself is excellent - people on the other end of the call say it almost is as clear as a landline. I'm not regretting my decision in the least.

    Had 4 lines with AT&T (3000 minutes for $366 per month), switched to Sprint and am now only paying $157.50 for 3000 minutes w/ 4 lines after discounts. Coverage with Sprint is much better and the speed is night and day difference!!! I love the fact there are no hidden fees, AT&T really does nickel and dime you to death!

    I opened up a 2nd line to get the Pre because I did not want to let go of my $30 SERO account.

    I may end up returning the Pre and cancelling the line because Sprint won't add my 19% corporate discount to the line.

    I'm with Tmo and have the BB Flip and hotspot@home. I've not had a landline for years. I opened a Sprint account Saturday morning (in line for an hour and a half after getting off work) and got the Pre.

    Tmo has been fine and hotspot@home has been super. Since I work nights (free minutes) the $10.00 a month hotspot@home add on (unlimited calling) has allowed me to have just a 300 minute/month plan.

    I got the Airave yesterday (free and no monthly fee) and in a half hour it was up and running. Just plug in the cables and wait. Full bars in my apartment now just like BB with hotspot@home. Airave does take an extra 4 to 5 seconds to initiate a call as compared to the BB on UMA. That's a noticeable difference.

    I'm still deliberating a final decision.

    The rep in the store told me that discounts wouldn't work on the cheapest pre plan. I insisted that he attached my company to my account anyway. I then got an email from sprint confirming that my discount was coming within a bill cycle or two.

    I left Verizon with 2 lines, 1 blackberry and 1 dumbphone. So far Sprint service has been exceptional in the Ohio area and the Pre is fulfilling almost all of my Blackberry needs. Very happy so far.

    The Pre made leave AT&T for one line and go to Sprint. We still have a family plan on AT&T with 3 phones on it (wife with an iphone, mother-in-law with a simple SE phone, and a RAZR2 that I carry (no data plan, just voice). I also have a BB on the family plan, but will turn that off once EAS works right and can use the Pre.

    As soon as the Pre is available on AT&T, I will dump Sprint in a heartbeat and just add the pre as another line. If voice dial is also there by then I'll turn off the RAZR2 as well.

    If EAS isn't fixed soon, I will return the Pre, and go with an iPhone GS and wait for the next rev of Pre hardware on AT&T.

    Where I live and work the Sprint coverage in marginal (I roam onto VZ's network with 5 bars in my office, but then burn battery power trying to move to Sprint when I walk down the hall and Sprint's crappy signal is marginally improved).

    I left AT&T - Treo 750 for the Pre. This thing is amazing. No stuck pixels, not slider crashes, and I'm on my third day without a recharge!!!!

    Here's the weird piece. I went to a few Sprint stores Sat morning 6/6 and they were all sold out. Cruising around Sunday about 11am (OHIO) I come upon a Sprint store and decide to make a try - what can I lose, right?

    [them]No, sold out right away.

    [me]Okay, can I get on a waiting list?

    [them]Sure.

    [me]Okay, how many are on the list now?

    [them]Oh, maybe 10.

    [me]Wow, that's all?

    [them]Are you a Sprint customer?

    [me] No, I'd be switching from AT&T.

    [them] Can you wait here one minute?(disppears into back room)

    [them] Good news, I found one mixed in with the empty boxes, You're in luck!!!!

    [me] Whoa, that's cool. Wait, shouldn't you sell it to the first person on your list?

    [them] No, we have more on the way.

    This was weird. I actually got spooked that he was going to sell me a returned phone and I asked him that point blank. He insisted it was brand new and by all accounts it is - it has been flawless.

    Very similar experience to my own. They were magically out of Pre's to give me a replacement until I mentioned that I was getting frustrated as I had just joined Sprint with the launch of the Pre and haven't canceled my Verizon service yet. I got one of those " Just a minute sir" followed by, "I have a Pre with your name on it right here". Doesn't seem to be as bad as Verizon was with the Storm though, I played hell trying to get one because I was already a Verizon customer.

    My Sprint reception in my house is pretty bad. It's usable for voice though, and I have Wifi, so I'm not concerned too much. It's not as good as my old T-Mobile though, but they didn't have 3G here.

    Elsewhere around here Sprint has amazing coverage though.
