    well, ces 2011* is the deadline to see if they are going to carry any more palm phones at all imo. If they don't have anything announced then, I don't think they'll go back to palm until palm gains significant marketshare on some other carrier. I'll probably ride my contract till the end, then I might leave if the phone I want is somewhere else

    I once asked a Sprint rep when they were getting the Iphone and they told me in the future. Sprint reps know little.

    The phone I want is/has:
    1 a physical keyboard (something Palm has done traditionally for many years)
    2 4g (great footprint here)
    3 build quality that one can be proud of
    4 within 2 months time
    5 webOS

    If #5 can't happen, I will get the epic4g which has 1-4 and its available right now.

    And since, ATT and T-Mobile don't offer CDMA, the only other carrier is Verizon.

    So if it works Sprint to Verizon, I would bet that it works from Verzion to Sprint.

    How come your signature says you have a Palm PrPrPr?

    My two cents ... I decided to call Sprint and see what they would say. She flat out told me, after putting me on hold and calling some other department, Sprint will not be getting a Pre 2. Take that with a grain of salt ... but we'll see.

    My next phone will be similar ...

    1: Sprint ...
    2: 4G ...
    3: Quality ...
    4: webos ...
    5: iOS 5 ???

    It's one of those. I might even consider a Windows Mobile Phone 7 if the above is not available. But if a Windows is not 4G, and a Android is, I be getting Android. My reservation with Android is Google likes to save things. Like my voice when I call GOOG 411. Like my emails. What are they saving on my phone usage? I know it's probably me being paranoid, but it's how I feel. And WebOS is the most polished OS in my opinion. Apple's is just too simplistic, which is both a curse and a good thing. Windows Phone 7 has a lot of great features but lacks anything new. Ergo, Web OS being my first choice.

    I really, really hope Sprint gets a 4G HPalm phone. I hope they "declined" it because Sprint wants a better phone then the Pre 2.

    Only 1x for data though.
    Palm Vx -> Treo 600 -> Treo 700p -> Centro -> Pre (Launch Phone 06/06/09) -> AT&T Pre Plus with Sprint EVDO swap -> Samsung Epic 4G w/ Froyo

    Or you can wait till CES to see what sprint is getting.

    I didn't switch to Sprint originally (almost 10 years ago) because they were cheaper, but because they had the Treo 300. I've stayed with with them because (even though their selection of phones is weak compared to other carriers) they always had the new Palm phones that I wanted. I've been gritting my teeth while VZ and AT&T got the Pre Plus, now Sprint is about to give me all the reason I need to take my four family lines to Verizon.

    and Verizon roaming is not the same as having Verizon. My friends with Verizon will be getting great reception in our rural hospital, or in the tribal fitness center, and I will have only intermittent reception. I think Verizon limits Sprint to keep their advantage, which is unfortunately why I plan to switch to Verizon when they get a new Palm phone. Not sure if the Pre2 is enough reason though, as just a Pre+ with glass screen and 5MP camera.... Maybe a I'll wait for the HP Uberphone.

    Sure. But roaming is 1x data only and not EVDO. So there's still an incentive to have a good Sprint signal. I've noticed a couple of places while I'm on the road where I get EVDO and roaming, but almost everywhere else roaming = 1x. And since I use my devices primarily as data devices (more than voice) data matters more to me than voice.
