Default Did anyone get the New Palm Pre?

I had to drive about an hour and a half last night but went ahead and did it. The phone is awesome but it is going to take some getting used to. It is a big upgrade going from a Palm Centro to this phone because of how much better the web sites load and look. They load as a real web page and then you can zoom in on hte features which makes it really great for checking auctions on the go.
Just wondering if anyone on here got one.

Coming for a cell phone employee, any PDA phone has about a month period to work out a lot of bugs with them, IE: Iphone, Blackberry Bold, and ANY PALM. However, the Centro is one of the biggest pieces of garbage I have encountered working with any phone unless your using some of the special applications. Your call through, just giving a word of advice.

I know what you are saying but am also very impatient. I am hoping i have no issues but that is why I have phone insurance and if there are any problems they will replace it.

I'm picking one of these up when they come out. I have seen a few mockups of what it will look like, but nothing final. Best part is, works paying for the thing, so no worrying about the ridiculous contract that comes with it

Actually it looks exactly the same as the 3G. It just has better features built in.

Now its a 16G or a 32G
Also has a faster processor - rumored to be twice as fast as the current 3G
Longer battery life
Video Recorder
3 Megapixel camera
Voice Dialing
$299 for the 32G with a new contract
_________________________________________________________________

Most of the other upgrades will come with the new 3.0 OS

MMS
Landscape messaging
Built in compass that interacts with google maps
__________________________________________________________________

One of my friends works for Spring so he has been talking about the Pre for weeks. It does look like a pretty nice phone. I am just not a fan of Sprint especially in NYC. The two best carries in NYC are AT&T and Verizon. Verizon works awesome in the tunnels and in the city itself while AT&T is the better carrier on Long Island where I live...not to say they arent good in the city, just that Verizon is better in that area.....

I wouldnt make my decision on the phone as much as the carrier of the phone. You can have the best phone ever and it wont work if you dont have the network.

I hear where you are coming from. I have been with Sprint/Nextel for 6+ years and like their coverage in Central IL where I live. For the price of the plan we are on and what we get (Me and wife share 1500 anytime,unlimited text,web,weekend,nights,etc..) all for about $110 a month, you can't beat it.
This is the first phone of its kind for Sprint and with the rebate it was $200 and has a lot of aps. I love it so far and am not going to get much accomplished away from the phone for a few days.

Yeah, my 2 year is up in Nov but will definately keep it month to month. It is "Sprint Employee Referral Offer" all you had to do was use a employee email and sign up online, there even was a generic email anyone could use. They finally stopped allowing people to do it.

Just make sure that if they try to offer you something shiny for a reduced 2 year price that they dont change the plan on you.

I used to be in the business so I know how shady some of us can be. There is most likely some sort of note on your profile telling whoever looks at it about this. Sometimes the system will really not allow an upgrade of a phone without changing the plan.

You will just have to pay full price for whatever phone you want....that is if you even want a new one

Looks like your phone is big bucks so im sure your not gonna change it...

Touch Pro phone - Google Product Search

This is a great website for those that are into phones Phone Scoop

Yeah and I got that phone for free like 4 months ago! Sprint let people send in their HTC Moguls thru a online program because of so many bugs with the device and they sent on the Touch Pro's. The best part was I had no insurance and my Mogul had a huge crack in the screen, they still accepted it without charging me anything.
