Hey guys. i just ordered the new Palm Pre for myself a few days ago. ive been reading alot on it, and i also work at Bell Mobility as a salesman, and ive been getting alot of mixed reviews on the Pre.

im currently using the Blackberry Storm. It's a phone with great potential, but it is crap right now. very unstable system and very unreliable (freezing and crashing all the time)

so yeah. i was wondering if any of you guys have gotten your hands on the Palm Pre. all of the ones i've tried at work seemed pretty sweet and fluid, but sometimes you need a few days to really see what the deal is. to me, it sort of seems like an Iphone, but with a full physical QWERTY keyboard, which is GREAT to have ( i went from a blackberry curve to a blackberry storm...ive never missed a real keyboard so much in my life)

So??? whats the general feeling about the Pre?

thanks

P.S. for those of you who live under a rock, this is the phone im talking about:

hahaha. the instinc is indeed a huge POS. You have no idea how many returns we've had on that phone at the store. i refuse to even sell them anymore.

to the others... i dont recall asking you guys or even caring about what phones y'all use. theres another thread for that. i just wanna know about the ones who've had an experience with the Pre.

The Pre is just another phone in a long line of gimmickry that craps out and is just on the bandwagon that every cellular company is on right now. "Exploit Gen Y for as much money as you can before they realise what is happening"

I don't think we should listen to you. Doesn't your ID say you're a security threat?

Idk about you but it would be troublesome if my phone wasn't capable of making phone calls.

I'm rockin' one of these as of now:





It's pretty sick. Picked it up on a steal with a 2-year contract a few weeks ago. The guy assured me it was top of the line.
