    Now that is an argument that makes sense. I got a few bucks when a friend decided to switch to Sprint too.

    And any story that ends in receiving $100 is a good story. (well, almost any story. I was pretty desperate for cash when back in college and...)

    And why would you assume I talked them into the Pre without knowing what their needs were?

    They had the same needs as me, so I pointed them in the direction I thought they would be better going in. And yes Urkel, I thought that was great....AND A GOOD STORY....

    But if you feel the need to keep on slamming...go right ahead

    Funny how that works, I tried to convert 10 people, and none of them bought it.
    Then I mentioned to 4 people as a casual note , they surprised me by buying it.

    I haven't converted an iPhone owner yet (the sad reality of the type of status symbols some people in NYC love) but I have gotten 5 other people to buy a Pre.

    My wife and I were at a jazz concert at a local winery yesterday and just before it started, as usual, my wife had her Pre out fooling around with it. A waiter walked by, looked down and said "Ooooh, Palm Pre!" and then promptly pulled a Pre out of his pocket.

    He spent about 15 minutes at our table raving about it like a salesman, to the point I was worried he might actually get in trouble.

    From two of them, the other two are existing customers.
    But none of the folks with iphone are willing to look at pre, let alone comparing it.
    They were like ' hmm , but its not an iPhone'
    And I go like
    ' Yes its not an Iphone its Pre'

    The Pre is much more solid then people think, and people should concentrate more on what it IS and not what it ISN'T.
    People should know what the pre can and cannot do. Some people buy wildly and end up hating the product. Some people read/watch the reviews and make a decision. It is WRONG to try to dictate what people should concentrate on. Before I bought the pre. I paid very close attention to every detail of the device, some people won't do that (hence the reason why some people here got a problem with your conversion tactics).

    I won't go ahead and judge cause the phone is really good and I am sure every owner will love it (i know i do). But I remember when i couldn't receive a file from my friend via bluetooth cause the pre DOES NOT SUPPORT that yet (still hoping someone will correct me soon) I was really, really really pissed. That's the kind of functionality we just came to expect.

    GO PALM!

    Good for you powerbyte. I myself just ditched my iPhone. I'm glad it came along or else i'd still be using a SLVR but I could only take too much locked down features and overall "if something is wrong, its the customer's fault" attitude. Throw in the border line lying and definitely arrogant I'm a PC commercial's and all I had to wait for was my ATT contract to end.

    I'm busy trying to convince my brother not to get an iPhone when his contract ends and he ditches his Tilt. Honestly though given its taken 10 minutes to type this out on my Pre I may have my work cut out for me. I'm getting better at typing but boy is it a steep learning curve. Still made the right decision by a long shot. Whoever says you don't need true multitasking doesn't realize the true potential of mobile phone computing, and of course has their head up where the sun don't shine

    I agree it's uncalled for and inappropriate; Urkel acknowledged you're promoting Pre for free so wouldn't brand-**** be more appropriate?

    Count me in for talking at least 3 people into getting a Pre! Wish I had made them tell Sprint that I did all the work!

    Damn, didn't think of that. My old lady was looking pretty hot, but I take it as a compliment when somebody hits on her so I tend not to notice.

    Ok, I guess I'm dense cause I'm totally missing the joke here. You did get the part where I said my wife had her Pre out, not me, right? My Pre was in my pocket the whole time and I was only peripherally involved in the conversation.

    But hey, if he was hitting on my I'm taking that as a compliment too. I'm old now, you take what you can get.

    the joke my dear friend is that ANYONE who says "OOOOOOHHHHH...PALM PRE", is probably not really all that into girls.....get it????

    wink wink nudge nudge....

    (That is not to put down anyone who is gay, BTW...it's all in good fun)

    Ha! I thought maybe that's where you were going, but I've got pretty worked-up over seeing another man with a Pre once or twice myself......
