No HP Pre 3 in the US, just stinks!

I was really holding out for this phone on Verizon!

Up until June this year, I was a 15 year customer of Sprint. Used to have Nextel phones most of those years, but went to a Palm Pre on opening day in June 2009, from Radio Shack. That's when I grew into webOS. Since Sprint clearly was not going to get anymore webOS phones, I followed the blogs and eagerly awaited news on the pre 3 to hit Verizon. All signs were that it would.

Then Verizon announced it was moving away from their unlimited data at $29.99! I fealt the sense of urgency to get on Verizon to be grandfathered in. My contract with Sprint was over. So I went into a phone plan without a contract after I bought a Verizon Pixi Plus off of Amazon for $45. Now I'm on Verizon with this phone, no contract....waiting. Now no HP pre 3 at all! This just sucks all together...what to do now.

I ordered a Verizon pre 2 during the firesale, but that may now be cancelled hp tells me, due to their overselling.

Yep I'm a 10 year vet of sprint myself and as of this month I'm off contract . I will be hunting down a pre³ if possible and moving to AT&T if I find one . There was most certainly a Verizon pre³ that was in testing , but the phone companies dropped support as soon as HP said they were going to stop making devices. Also the pre³ was within 2 weeks of being put up for sale on both AT&T and verizon . Its just to bad !!

yeah and what r they doing with the att stock as well would be my question lol

I think the ATT phones were GSM that passed through the FCC, so they can be sold in Europe, no?
