But, normally, I'm pretty satisfied with overall performance. That's what's lacking for me in the Touch Pro.

I think part of my frustration is that I don't jump for the latest and greatest every year (at least the older and poorer I get, that's the case!) So, when I wait a couple of years to upgrade, I expect a considerable performance improvement over my older device. With the Touch Pro, I'm sort of left with the feeling that I might have been wiser to wait another year before upgrading.

That's kind of what prompted me to start the thread. Without getting into a whole it's good/it's bad/Verizon suck/etc debate, I'm just curious if other people are feeling satisfied with their purchase.

the reason i asked is because i had the vougue(touch)and loved it although i felt it lack alot of features.i have upgraded to the pro but with the overheating issues,it makes this phone very hard to use without a couple of batteries nearby.but i won't change models because the next one might be worse.plus a software upgrade is in the works,so i'm going to hold out.maybe this will help you decide.

If they make the PIE better and able to use more sites that I can't go to now than I feel like they really made a BEAST. Its A++ in my book
Well, there you go -- it's definitely a perception thing.

In my case, I'd call the keyboards about equal on the (Verizon) TP versus the 6700. I like the shift/function approach and having a numbers row on the TP, but that stupid M placement and a few missing keys are driving me nuts.

As far as functionality, GPS is the only thing that I've found the TP can do that the 6700 couldn't. Of course, the 6700 had IR, which I used a lot and the TP doesn't, so it's give and take.

Personally, I don't think there's any "right" or "wrong" opinion in all this, since it comes down to whether the device does what you the user want it to do, the way you want it to work.

It's just interesting to me to see what everyone thinks after they've had a chance to use it and tweak it for a while.

Re: 2 months+ later are you satisfied?

i bought mines on 12/27/08. right now, it's packaged back up in the box and ready to go back to sprint. at first, i was really satisfied with the device, being as it was the first smart phone i've ever owned. however, after spending a lot of time browsing these forums, reading, learning, switching roms, applying tweaks, i've discovered how imperfect this device is. there are so many issues that annooy me, especially since it's sprint's flagship phone. the final nail in the coffin was the announcement of the palm pre. so i'm gonna wait for that to come out.

edit: just realized this was for the verizon version

FWIW, keep in mind that no device is "perfect." I wish you well with the Palm Pre, but I'd bet that you'll find forums full of people pointing out its "imperfections," too. One guy's "perfect" is the next guy's "totally sucks."

If you've never owned a smartphone before, you'd be smart to give a lot of thought to what you want it to do before you buy, then read lots of forums to see how well a device you're considering does those things specifically.

Re: 2 months+ later are you satisfied?

i, like the op, would like to keep this on topic please.let's not turn this into a verizon/sprint thing.the bottom line is the pro needs help.it doesn't matter who the carrier is,this thread is about the pro.

Hard to say. I went into this phone with eyes open and was awarre of the VZW limitations/crips, most of which have been addressed thru ROMs. (Can't do much about small memory or keyboard tho...)

I haven't spent much time with the Sprint or ATT versions beyond in-store playing, but based on that, they didn't seem any faster than the VZW.
