    I saw 2 articles today stating that the Pre will not save Palm nor Sprint because most of the buyers are current Sprint customers. If you switched to Sprint, please reply. Im just curious if there is a good amount of carrier switchover.

    I switched from Verizon. I absolutely love this phone, but there is a good chance I'm going to switch back. Using VZ, I haven't dropped a single call in 3 years when talking to my wife. Since we both got the Pre, we've dropped no less than 15 calls.

    Former AT&T here, but I switch carriers fairly regularly - I've been on all four major carriers over the past 5 or 6 years.

    Switched from TMO.

    My wife has a blackberry on TMO (not 3G) and pays $120 per month for unlimited data, voice and text. I was paying $50 for unlimited GPRS data 1000 minutes and some text.

    Now I'm paying $55 for unlimited everything but 450 voice and couldn't be happier.

    I guess business week or information week have something against PALM and SPRINT.

    Screw them bastards. I have been keeping an eye on their articles since the launch.
    They have nothing but negative stories / statements.
    Seems like they didn't get inner access to PALM.

    I own sprint stock, and can tell you that it will be back to 10 dollar range in two quarters.

    Also these idiots forget that , money will come from existing customer upgrades too.

    If all the 1 million pres were sold in a month or two, you are talking about 10- 20 millions per month extra revenue on upgrades , because some folks who bought pre has to pay more to SPRINT on monthly plan.

    to be honest , I haven't seen anyone switching from other carriers , but I know at least six of the existing folks ending up paying 30 bugs more on their whatever legacy plans.

    Long-term Verizon user, just switched to get the Pre. The Sprint signals in my area are definitely not as good as Verizon's, but are adequate everywhere I've been around town except in my home. Sprint gave me an Airave to cover that problem.

    I switched from Tmobile (was on verizon before that).

    Sprint definetly has the price advantage, even over tmobile.

    That being said, the reception is terrible. Absolutly horrific. I've dropped more calls in two weeks with this phone than i have over the past 5 years combined on both services.

    The weird thing is that I live in Los Angeles, and thought I would have great reception.

What, he expects them to sell MORE than 100% of their shipped inventory? Sure, maybe Sprint wishes less existing customers took supply away from potential carrier-jumpers, but what can they do?

    And Palm? Carrier-conversion has ZERO impact on Palm, because again, they are selling Pre's as fast as they can crank them out. Why should they care if they are new or old Sprint customers?

    The Apple FUD machine is in full swing.

    Switched a Family plan from Verizon to get the Pre, even had to pay an early termination fee to do it.

    Switched from AT&T. Couldn't be happier.
    Sprint network in my area is far superior to the coverage I got with AT&T.
    I love my pre (coming from an Iphone)!

    I switched over from ATT and unfortunately will have to give up my Pre. It is, bar none, the best phone I have ever held in my hands. Unfortunately, Sprint is terrible everywhere I need it. I work in a hospital (where I spend most of my life) and just cannot get good reception. I drop calls, cannot make calls, and get NO reception in certain places. As much as I hate it, I have to return the phone. I havent yet because I am holding on to it as long as possible. It will make the wait, whenever it comes out for ATT/Verizon, that much shorter.

    I've been a customer for a while but I ported my girlfriend over from VZW. She likes it so far.
