Don't do it, unless you like to wait and hope forever...

If you are looking for a phone that is like the I Phone, then go get an I phone cause this is not it. I like my pre some days and hate it on others. I am going to still stick with it and see where this phone goes, which maybe far sooner then later, only cause i am in a 2 year deal with them. I wish i had 2 weeks left and not 2 years. This phone multitasks really good!

Re: alright pre fans... talk it up.

The pre was a pretty good phone, but I moved on to android and I'll tell you why. My only real gripe about the pre was the app catalog. NOT because of the quantity of apps, no that would be stupid. What bothered me was the pricing on everything. I thought by now maybe the prices would go down, but the new games that even just came out are like 9.99. I can get a comparable game on android for 1.99 with a 24 hour return(full refund) policy. If you're okay with paying too much for apps and possibly having to exchange it due to build quality issues once or twice to find a good one, then go for it. WebOS is a great new operating system (multitasking is second to none), and the pre's hardware (internals like the cpu and gpu) is fantastic.

hope I helped a little bit

Re: alright pre fans... talk it up.

I'm going to tell you that I'm a really BIG FAN of windows in general and I miss the stilus and the busy time trying to get a wimo phone working beter but what you need to ask yourself is what use I'm going to give to this new device, me for example never going to use nothing without a hard keyboard but over all PRE is the best phone I ever use. But again is jus my opinion. What I allways tell my friends don't spend 2500 $ in a pc just to navigate internet and read emails

Re: alright pre fans... talk it up.

If your on Sprint, I'd wait for some of the phones with the Snapdragon chipset in them, which could be out as early as Q1. I know its tempting to hop on a new phone once the contract expires especially if its extremely outdated, but I'd hold off. If you can't wait, the Droid is pretty snazzy with the little I've played with it (if you don't mind switching to Verizon), I like the Hero, and I like the Pre.

to be honest, theres only one thing that winmo has over webos. winmo you can do ANYTHING you want to your phone, webos seems a little limited, but take the stability any day. aside from the limits, i love this phone
