Sprint’s Sero Plan + Palm Pre?

May 20, 2009

Nope.

Sprint won’t allow you to transfer your Sero plan to the new Palm Pre.  Here’s the link.  So if you’ve been holding on to the Sero plan and hoping to transfer it to the Pre, you’re SOL.

Yet another reason to wait for the 3rd generation iPhone!

The Pre will be on sale June 6 and will cost $199 after a $100 mail in rebate and a 2 year commitment to Sprint.  I think the price point is right to compete with the iPhone.

As a former long time customer of Sprint before moving to the iPhone and the POS AT&T, I can say that Sprint coverage is far superior to AT&T.  That being said, the iPhone is SO good overall, it is easy to overlook the few shortcomings it has.

It remains to be seen if the Pre is a better smart phone than the iPhone.

I can’t wait to check out the Pre but will be standing in line for the next iPhone hoping this time, my line waiting is not as drama-filled.

    Sucks. Best we can do is get the same plan for $59.99 to get the Pre.

    The cheapest plan they will let you use is the $69.99 one, actually.

    I’ve emailed Palm to let them know I’d like the Pre phone but Sprint is refusing to let me upgrade to it. I’d encourage the rest of you to do the same. Both Palm and Sprint are hurting very badly, anything that might soil their relationship is sure to get remedied right quick if attention is drawn to it.

    Alternatively, I have heard there is a new Palm Centro-like device that will be available with another carrier if you guys just wanted to wait and switch providers. Seems like the only way to get a good deal is to switch cellphone providers every 2 years.
