    The reason I ask is because my sprint store informed me that my phone will likely be in tomorrow, so decision day is quickly approaching. I'm willing to give up the sweet plan if it's worth it - so what do you guys think? Go for the Pre? Or wait for the TP2?

    Definitely worth it to me. I enjoyed my run on SERO but I've been waiting for a device like this to come along and I'm loving my Pre. I joined Alliant Credit Union to bring the cost of my Everything Data plan down to $53 and I can live with that.

    Probably worth it. At some point...it was going to happen. All the phones after the Pre that are "high end" will not be usable on SERO...might as well get the Pre and get the 70/month plan.

    I'd do it again.

    still undecided about this, mainly due to frustrations about not being able to use some of my important Palm OS apps.

    Have no choice anyway... i dont think io can go back even if i return the phone.

    i will definitely miss my $30 monthly bills but the Pre is certainly worth the extra money if you appreciate its worth. The phone is downright elegant coming from a Centro. I will get my money's worth, that's for sure.

    I was on the $50 SERO plan so I don't regret getting the pre with my 25% employee discount and $100 service credit one time service credit. I definitely don't regret getting this awesome phone.

    I just switched from my SERO plan- will cost about $40 extra per month for my wife and I. I think its worth it- SERO is a great PLAN but a great plan without a great phone isn't all that great. Its kind-of like cheap gas to go cruising but you only have your parents ford escort to drive versus paying more for your gas and getting to drive your dads porsche- its worth the extra cost. Anyway, I'm sure sprint will continue to try its best to get rid of the sero plans...

    Honestly I have not been this happy in years, this phone rocks and I am very picky about phones.

    I took the plunge and I agree with the sentiments above - I got a 15% discount through my work so, it makes it a little easier to upgrade. Loving the phone and not looking back. I'm pretty sure that the SERO plans will be done away with as quickly as possible by not allowing up grades to new phones without upgrading to one of the 'new' plans.

    I am happy with the switch. I had my family on a total of 4 SERO plans (2-500 minutes plans and 2-1250 minute plans) which totaled $160 before taxes (and not including +14 for TEP on the lines with a PDA). On top of that I had a 21% off on all 4 accounts through my employer and 10% off credit on my line as well as a 100 free minutes on another. Total after taxes with all the discounts was around $160. However, a couple months ago they decided to remove all my discounts (I would complain but I knew I wasnt to have any discounts on my SERO plans to begin with so after 3+years on SERO I let go of the discounts). Once the discounts went away, I ended up with a total of $196 after taxes.

    Now I moved the family over to the EPRP 3200 minute family plan (4 lines total) with TEP on 2 lines... total is <$210. For about $15 more and free sprint navigation and TV included on all lines (not to mention all lines can now upgrade to PRE and whatever else they come out with), i'd say it wasn't a bad move at all. However, I know my situation was unique in that I have 4 lines and the 3200 minute plan worked beautifully for me and my needs. Just make sure you do the math on what works best for you before you take the plunge. It is an awesome phone.

    Definitely no regrets

    Family and I switched over a total of 12 SERO lines....no regrets, Palm Pre is a nice phon.. And if it doesn't work out, the new plans work with blackberries too.

    I had a sero plan (briefly after my purchase of a Treo 700p), but when I spoke with Sprint on the phone and realized I had another family plan, they were able to add my phone back onto the family plan with some juggling (so that I was still paying around the same amount). My bill was still around $85/month with 2-3 phones sharing around 400 minutes. Inevitably we'd go over some months on the minutes, but the F&F prices cushioned the blow. Before my upgrade to the Pre, we had 4 lines on the shared plan (with me hardly using any of the minutes). When I purchased the Pre, I did not want to have it share minutes with the other phones. The sprint store sold added a $69.95 everything data 450 (or some similarly named plan) to my existing account and dropped my treo from the list of "add a phones". I also wanted to apply for a 10% discount on my phone because I belong to a credit union. I showed the salesperson my ATM card as proof of being in the credit union. It was pretty slick to have an in-store sales rep who knew exactly what to do (adding my phone to a new non-shared line on a currently shared account) and to have this "take" in the system without error. In fact, it was the sales person who reminded me about the discount!

    I'd like to say that I definitely saw the "new Sprint" the day I purchased my Pre (on opening day). The Pre is a 1.0 product, but even so, my life has been a lot better with it than before. It was worth the switch to me. The Pre might be a bit weaker at pulling in a signal than some other Sprint phones, but now you can roam for free in both digital and voice with an Everything Plan. To me, this meant getting a signal in the Boston subways where I didn't before. Overall, it has been a plus. The biggest shocker was less battery life (due only to having a smaller battery). I think the new Sedio battery for the Pre will probablty solve that problem.

    I'd say: "Jump into the pool, the water's nice!"

    Hell yeah it's worth it! All you pay is just $20 more. $20 is more than worth it for this amazing phone. If you want a Rumor then stick with your $30 per month but you're getting the best smart phone in the game right now.

    Normal folks having to pay $99 just to get this or at least very close to that. We're paying just $59. Either you want a Pre or you don't. The $20 should be a non-factor.

    And I believe you had to be on "Sero" in order to get this for just $59. So technically you are on the "new" Sero plan if you will.

    So glad to leave the burden of WinMo. But the first bill ain't here yet so I think this is a little early to ask for me. I'm on the $69.99 plan with 27% discount, so I'm essentially paying $20 more. We'll see, but so far, definitely love the Pre and don't mind the change.

    I just can't bring myself to double my plan. Currently paying $50 for 1250 anytime minutes (with a 25% discount) I was told no discount on the $99 unlimited everything plan. Anybody know of a way around that?

    Thanks all for your responses. I'm convinced... I'm gonna take the plunge tomorrow. Can't wait!

    Some people can get monthly credits instead of discounts...same thing basically. It's worth a try if you discount is legit.

    Why not get the phone on a new line for 30 days? That way, you can decide for yourself, and then go back to the SERO plan if you're dissatisfied.
