Woman plows her car into a store for a Pre

Woman plows her car into a store for a Pre
Some news out of Chicago is pointing that the Pre mania is upon us with some literally doing almost anything to get one. In the case of a cell phone store in Chicago, an elderly woman plowed her car right into the location. There was a video that caught all the action; including the moment when two employees got the shock of their lives. Luckily, they were quick to move away and avoid some serious injury. What about the woman in the car though? Well it seems like she was okay and emergency crews arrived on scene 30 seconds after the incident. Let's hope that everyone will be a little bit more cautious about Palm's launch for the Pre.

Did she really do this just to get a Pre? Come on, phonearena, could you at least have closed the article by saying that AT&T is better than Verizon so that we know this article is nonesense? I'm not starting a flame war here, just sayin' that phonearena also has a love affair with ATT.

This is happening all over the country. . .Check out this article from last weekend in Toledo, OH. http://www.wtol.com/Global/story.asp?S=10450627 I think drunk women have declared a jihad on sprint for being the worst carrier, having horrible customer service and advertising that they are the first 4G carrier when they dont have squat!!

Wowww there are some real haters on here especially rwolf...first of this pre that is in my hand as I type this is one of the best phones I have seen and had ever. This article is stupid but not as stupid and ignorant as vzw fanboys. Why don't you boys get your thumbs out of your a s s and stop inducing so much hate it makes me sick. By the way pre is amazing and def so far is the most unique phone yet. I haven't had any problems yet. Bb storm iphone sit down and take some lessons lmao!

Your sarcasm in some of your comments puts a bad taste in my mouth. You think your really something on a phone website. Your probably some little annoying kid on your parents computer. Time to go outside.

Hey rwolf your a dumbass you need to get out of your moms basement and check your facts RETARD!!!!!!!! You should go sqaut on your boyfriend. I just got the pre and it is amazing so all those haters need to chill and go check out the phone. I know it might be hard to walk away from your final fantasy games but do it.

Because of comments like that Sprint has lost over 2 million customers each quarter. . .SPRINT FANBOYS fire up a Palm Pre on BOOST, Where you at Dog? The whole 4G networks behind you! Even if Sprint had BB Storm and the Iphone in addition to the Pre they'd still be failing as a carrier. . . I am definitly not a VZW fan boy or a fan boy period. . .and I didnt dis the phone. . .I dissed the failing carrier. . .Sprint cant save Palm and vice versa

Boost is the only carrier right now having a huge number of customers join. Your just mad that there phrase "Where you at!!!" is what you use to pick up on dudes. Im sorry man. Im sure you will find a cute dude soon. Im also sorry about prop 8 to that must suck if you live in cali. Which im sure you live in San Francisco where the dudes are your treat.

belve, you are a tard. the pre is only a timed exclusive. it will be on VZW 6 months after launch. Its not like the Iphone or Storm which are near permanent exclusives for their carrier. You think palm wants to be tied to a sinking ship other than its own?!? haha!! its an interesting phone. if it makes it for the long haul is another story. this will sink or save palm... and im not about to sink money into a companys product that may not be here next year.

T-Won Fool, Thanks For Everything. . .Boost is Sprint-Nextel Pre-Paid and Sprint service blows. . .8-9 Million people de-activated from Sprint last year these were picked up almost evenly between AT&T and Verizon. . .Stop fantasizing about me with other dudes bro. . .

remixfa, you haven't been reading up lately because otherwise you would've known vzw won't have it in January if at all, have fun with the like Pre EOS. rwolf1984, 54M minus 5M equals 49M so brush up on your math skills.

Sprint has had an average loss of nearly 2 million customers per quarter since 2007. Sprint has also struggled to be profitable. Don't be suprised when they sell to a Chinese carrier with in two years from now. There are a few companies that would love to get in the market and make a low ball offer to Dan Hesse and buy up the customers. I wouldnt be suprised to see Sprint HQ foreclosed or Dan Hesse on that Repo show. . .lol. I am not obligated to write up a science project presentation Don Jon on how Sprints a dying carrier. . .blow me. Enjoy the Sprint. If it works for you great. Enjoy it while Danny boy can keep the towers on.

Actually I was just saying even if you rounded up it would only be 10M, if you're a GSM sub with att I hope that works for you because if it isn't after all those monthly fee you ought to be feeling like a sucker. VZW will work fine as long as stick to what they allow and charge extra for, I'm great being able to use my phone with no problem in all the places I've traveled and keeping all that money in my pocket. I find it so stupid that because someone decides Sprint is going down that it invalidates thier great network and super savings compared to any national carrier, oh well

You get what you pay for. . .Sorry you can't afford a better mobile phone carrier. . .AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon are superior carriers and have superior networks. What's wrong with GSM? Faster Data Transfer Speeds? More phones to choose from? Global Phones? Better Coverage? I dont see any disadvantages with a GSM carrier. LTE is going to blow the shit out if Sprint's WiMax. . . What monthly fees are you talking about? Sprint renews contracts and double bills customers. . .even if Sprint was hands down the best if your customer service blows it'll bite you in the ass. Sprint is doomed!
