    I thought this might be interesting because if we want Palm to succeed, we need to sell others on the Pre/Pixie.

    So, how many have you "sold" by convincing others to buy? Obviously, one would be for your own. Hopefully, we have a lot of members that have sold several.

    Sold my best friend on the Pre, he ditched his Droid when the Plus hit Verizon. Brother in law got a Pixi Plus, guy I know on another forum switched after we compared phones over a few days. Granted, all three of them had been impressed with my Treos, so it wasn't that hard a sell. More coming soon.........

    A couple, and several iPhone friends are tempted because they hate AT&T.

    I've been able to get people to look at Pre every time I've been in a Verizon store and I see someone playing with the Motorola Droid. I just tell them to be sure they look at the Pre before getting a Droid. When they ask why, I consider it an invitation to start demonstrating with my Pre Plus.

    The salesmen hate it, but the customers appreciate it. Even if they buy something else, they are doing so with better facts. I haven't been able to "lurk" long enough to see my victims buy, but I'm sure I had an impact on the salesman...

    I haven't come up with a scenario where I would recommend the Pixi. There isn't enough cost difference to justify the smaller screen and missing features.

    ...and I continue to tell my friends and family they MUST get a Pre...

    I have 3 friends that picked up Pre's more or less based on my recommendation.

    However, one defected to an iPhone about a month ago...

    I got my sister, brother,me, two friends and some girl at the sprint store ( because the ***** rep from palm couldn't sell his way out of a paper bag) she wanted to know if I was planted there by palm. She was like " why do you know more than him?" I started laughing, he didn't!

    By simply showing my phone to my friends I take credit for about 9 Pre's sold not including my own. So far only one is unhappy with it as they have been through three phones already . I can say for the most part that everyone else has had only minor issues (no hardware) and are extremely satisfied. I think My fiancee loves this phone more than I do because of the new Facebook app. update.

    Sorry, I forgot to add my sales. "Sold" one to my boss, and that allowed me to get one. One to my daughter, one to my dad, and my sister just got one today. Five.

    I put 2 because, although I have never actually seen anyone buy it, I talk about this phone EVERYWHERE. Any time I see someone whip out their Droid or feature phone I always do a demo of something or another. I have also had extended conversations with people at the store, the airport, at work... everywhere.

    I never say anything to an iphone owner, though, other than demonstrating what multitasking is supposed to look like. They don't listen to anything unless it comes from Jobs.

    3, not including myself. My brother in law and both my sisters.

    We've all had to replace ours at least once lol. Me and my brother in law replaced twice. so between four people, we've had 10 total pre's.
