    Welcome to Project Jump Ship National Headquarters.

    I also have a June 6 2009 Pre. While I do miss a few functions of WebOS, I don't miss the Pre at all.

    Welcome! It would sure be interesting to see the stats on the number of Pre owners who have jumped ship in the last 30 days. I bet it is a staggering number. I am one, and don't regret it at all.

    Count me in as another former Pre owner who jumped on the Evo bandwagon yesterday. Actually, I was pretty happy with my Pre. But it died on me this past weekend after an unfortunate encounter with water, so it was either shell out $100 for a refurb one through Asurion, or pay extra to get the Evo. After a few days of debating, I decided to go Evo. While I do miss aspects of webOS, the hardware of the Evo destroys the Pre. Love love love the screen!

    I too got frustrated with my Palm Pre. I took my Leatherman and a bunch of pent up energy and went to town on my 3am standing in line launch day Pre. First, I stabbed and stabbed the screen. Then I twisted and pulled with all I could muster.

    I had a Visor, and several Treos, but had such high hopes for Palm this time..... got my wife and daughter the Pre/Pixi..... I couldn't take it anymore! Finally, after a week in mourning and with no phone, i went to BB to get the Hero, but they happened to have EVO there thank the guardian angels.....


    Picture attached

    Tell Dieter I held out as long as possible..... 10 years on visor/pre central now I'm a Robot Fan Boy Go Google!

    I think the numbers in the last 30 days will be minimal in comparison to the numbers in the next 30 days after HPalm announces great new hardware on July 12th for VZW and AT&T and leaves Sprint webOS lovers out in the cold. (Obviously, just my humble opinion)...

    That was a bit extreme given you paid ~200 for it at launch. Perhaps a few anger management sessions would be in order? **ducks**

    I figured I'd keep my Pre for use as a backup on the off chance I need to get a replacement for my EVO and was required to wait for any length of time.

    Hmm.. Looks like I have the same version of Leatherman

    I use my Pre as backup.

    The only bad thing about it is the hardware and lack of apps.
    Otherwise, the UI was brilliant.

    lol, yeah i should have sold it first. But it was nice to release all that pent up agression on the thing. It was a good Office Space moment, and my wife/daughter will get the touchstones....

    I had the Pre for about a week. I actually liked it but the hardware issues became intolerable. If the hardware was more like my evo, I would have definitely kept it. But I am happy that I have an EVO now. I have never been this content with any smartphone I have ever owned.

    I just switched from a Pre, too. About to put it (along with 2 touchstones and an extra battery) on ebay and craigslist. No regrets switching, at all. Lovin' the EVO!!

    Add another.

    Was on my second Pre after the launch day one had a stuck power button in October so they just swapped it out. Second one had a blown speaker so it was OK but useless for speakerphone.

    The Sunday before the Evo launched the phone decided to erase itself so it blew away all the homebrew apps and tweaks and i just said, "fitting." So I went about a week on a near stock Pre and it was just weird.

    Had a good run with the Pre but it was time.

    I'm on my 4th Pre, due to all the returns. It's still sitting around collecting dust, or relegated to pretty much taking videos of the Evo and uploading it.

    I rather miss my Pre in some ways. I still find myself wishing I would swipe up, or swipe back. The gestures are just so full of win.

    I think I might try to sell it. Not sure.

    I got a Pre on launch day. A lot of great ideas went into the GUI, but the hardware sux... everyone seems to be on their 3rd or 4th Pre (I got my 3rd on Evo launch day due to a busted power button). The only thing I miss about the Pre is that it was so small I could easily touch any part of the screen with the same hand with which I held it.
