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.
I can understand that. I tend to change phones like socks and I'm always attracted to the newest shiny stuff. However, I can say that the BB has been the best phone and yet I still gravitate to whatever is at the top of that damn phone list. I'm not really brand loyal when it comes to phones but I'm having trouble finding a reason to switch to something else.

Just wondering. Thanks for the info. The 9630 is probably what I'm going with unless Sprint carries some of the other models.

Thanks for all the opinions.
