    so if I buy an unlocked Pre3, can I activate it on my Sprint account? If so, any disadvantage with upgrading from my Pre-?

    oops. That was 2 dumb questions...

    The Pre3 will not work on Sprint. If you want to upgrade, I'd really suggest FrankenPre'ing a Pre2 onto Sprint. I wish I could use a Pre3 on Sprint, but the Pre2 is great!

    It is misleading when they say "UNLOCKED - USE ON ANY NETWORK". What they mean is use on any GSM network, not Sprint or ATT, which are CDMA.

    Wish it would, though. (sigh)

    ATT is GSM

    whilst in agreement, its up to the buyer to check compatibility.
    Its better to be over the hill than buried under it.

    I've currently got my Pre 2 on TMobile, but am looking to upgrade to a Pre 3. I've seen a few AT&T Pre 3's around for sale, but they don't necessarily say that they are "Unlocked". If I'm just going to slip a Tmobile SIM in there, do I really care if the AT&T phone is "unlocked" or not?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes you do care if it's unlocked, but in case it's not Dogbert has a free unlocking method available. Search for it on Google. Not very difficult but takes a bit of time :-)

    I'm sure he meant Verizon.
