    I am just a poor cowboy from Wyoming:( I have been looking at your website which is the best by the way:thumbsup: from my mountain top ranch on top of the Big Horn mountains. Wanting a new phone but not having the money sucks. I still have my bag phone that no longer works and I also have an LG flip phone that is on its last legs. My closest neighbor is 30 miles away:eek: A new reliable phone in my case would not only be cool but it could be a life saver. The pic is me in my front yard with a late bull calf. His name is Bull Ownie. Winter came early this year. Our first snow hit October 7th with temps hovering around 4 degrees during the day So if you would consider me for your "Fall Freebie: Original Verizon Touch Pro Give Away" It would sure make Bull Ownie and me happy:) Thanks for reading my post.

    I'm guess I just have to write about why its so awesome and why I want it.
    So here we go.

    VGA 2.8" screen. It may be small, but it has to be one of the sharpest, if not the sharpest touchscreen on a phone of all time. It has a whopping 287 pixels per inch. Compare this to the Iphone 3GS that has just 163 pixels per inch.

    This phone features a d-pad,stylus, and accelerometer that does great for gaming. You can play classics like Age of empires 1, or use the accelerometer for more modern games.

    3.2 Megapixel camera with LED flash.
    The orignal Iphones can't come close to the 3.2 megapixel camera that can also record video. It even has an edge on the new iphone 3gs with its LED flash.

    Unlike the touch diamond, the touch pro features a keyboard that is great for text messaging and typing up quick emails. No more whipping out a stylus to try to type on a small virtual keyboard. Another feature it has is the extended battery compared to the Touch diamond. With the Touch pro, you dont have to worry about your phone not lasting a day's work.

    And the best feature of all is the just the fan base. They have already made VGA versions of manilla 2.5 and several other custom ROMs that make the phone so much faster and enjoyable.

    To conclude, I'd really like the Touch Pro because its a great phone that is affordable and can still give the new expensive phones like the Imagio and Iphone 3gs a run for their money.

    Thanks for hearing me out,

    So I got really excited when I saw the Fall Freebie. I thought the best thing I could do was throw a party, just like Microsoft and their 7 parties. I invited all my friends and one of my buddies, Touch Pro. Everything was going well until Ken Griffey Jr. started going nuts about getting VIP. Then the other Touch's started pushing chairs and leaning on eachother to get up to VIP with the Pro. As you can see by the image below, things got a little out of hand. Since I was dressed in white and don't have any hardware inside my shell, I just tried to blend in. By the end of the night, VIP was ripped down and Griffey's leg was caught between the slide out keyboard and the wall. That Touch Pro sure is something with it's WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, oustaded Junior in a wrestling match, Touch Flo 3D, and capacity to possibly be upgraded to WinMo 6.5, boy I would I be lucky to become one someday.

    Picture attached, I couldn't figure out how to embed it becuase I'm a phone and robots have yet to take over the world, yet...

    (I've made a couple other attempts in this thread, not really understanding how to win. I hope this makes sense to more than just me and gives me a shot, just to be clear that is my co-workers Pro, not mine.)

    :D I really could use the Verizon Touch Pro that you are offering. I'm a reformed Treo 700p user and have bought into Windows Mobile big time. I Love mu Omnia but have a very hard time typing without a hard key pad. I use the phone for everything from all personal and professional e-mail, calendar, task management, podcasts - particularly WMExperts as well as MP3's, Google Maps, Kinoma, GPSweather and keeping up on all the sports scores... Yeah I love the functionality but have a difficult time, like I said, with a virtual key board.:censored:

    I thought I could make the adjustment (Dieter said on a podcast give it a month or so and you can get use to any QWERTY) but its just not as good as the Treo QWERTY. Thanks and I look forward to the next Podcast (already downloaded on Omnia for my listening pleasure) and great new smart phones. I love that I'm more knowledgeable than the folks in Verizon Support. :thumbsup:

    Thanks, I saw that the last freebie was chosen at random, so I was getting nervous.
