rambo, I read in one of your other posts that you had the pre but switched back. It seems like a nice phone, what turned you back?
I still have my Pre and use it as a backup/change-of-pace device, but nothing does email like a BlackBerry. I missed my BB too much, and after a couple of weeks the "new-ness" of the Pre wore off. Once the "shiny new gadget" phase was done, the little weaknesses and missing features of the Pre let me look at it objectively. The keypad on the Pre doesn't compare to a BlackBerry, and the email handling was not up to the high standards I had come to rely on with my old BlackBerrys. No local sync with the Pre, no ability to change the sounds for different incoming messages, and an over-reliance on Google, all rubbed me the wrong way.
