              Ah, yes, but Sprint's 3G network>AT&T's mess...

                I am not technologically evolved enough to operate a phone like that.
                I lost my old plain vanilla Sprint freebie phone, an immense improvement over smoke signals and adequate for my purposes, at the Hearne, TX McDonalds on the way home from NCAA Indoor at TAMU. Discovered the loss when I stopped for gas in Waco about 60 miles down the road. Called Sprint to inactivate the phone which they did, presumably immediately. When I got my bill, the finder had made 21 calls to Mexico before Sprint pulled the plug. Mercifully, Sprint did not charge me for those calls.
                A friend, who has moved onward and upward to cell phone Nirvana, gave me her retired Sprint Samsung, which has lots of mysterious features, including a camera, that I hope to learn to operate before I lose this one.
                I have noticed the batteries on these thin phones have to be recharged more frequently.

                  Which is my provider and I found out the Pre is mine for the taking because it's been so long since I got a new phone and I've had the plan so long. Ima gittin' one! But . . . if they've under-produced them (to build demand), it may be awhile. I don't do lines for stuff like this.

                    Review at nytimes.com:

                    the Pre is a spectacular achievement. Zero to 60 in one version. But is it an iPhone killer, as some gadget bloggers have been asking? The Pre will be a hit, but the iPhone isn’t going away.

                        TOMORROW! But I've already resigned myself to not being able to get one for weeks and weeks, due to the intentional under-supply.

                          nytimes review says the battery life could be a problem. Also, it's tied to Sprint, which doesn't always have the best coverage.

                              When I first got a cell phone about 9-10 years ago, I looked carefully at coverage for all of the major carriers. I looked at my local areas as well as places where I regularly traveled. Apart from the fact that Sprint seemed to have a dead zone where I lived, I found that Sprint's network around the country was not nearly as good as its competitors'.

                              Apparently, they still have issues--the Times's reviewer hae trouble picking up a Sprint signal where he lives.
