Sprint SERO on Palm Pre Will Work…Somehow.

by Jeremy on May 19, 2009


Don’t give up, fellow SERO’ers!

Today has been a rather rough day for us Sprint customers who are fortunate (and cursed) enough to be on the Sprint SERO plan. Unfortunately, we’re not fortunate enough to get much love from Sprint as far as new, shiny phones go. First they didn’t let us get the instinct (we really didn’t care about that), but now the Pre! What has this world come to? Things aren’t looking good for SERO and the Pre, but don’t give up just yet!

This morning, when Engadget officially announced the Palm Pre’s coming out of the closet date, I called Sprint to see if there was any hope for me and my SERO plan. The lady seemed rather clueless when I asked her if the Pre would work on my SERO plan – not surprisingly – but then she said something that gave me a glimmer of hope. She said that she ‘thought’ that it might work! How about that? It made me happy to hear a Sprint rep say that, even though I’m sure she’s just as clueless about it as I am. It felt better to hear that it ‘might work’ as opposed to hearing the depressing drone of tweets coming from twitter all the time. Not to mention, the official Sprint team’s tweet of shame regarding the Pre and SERO.

Nevertheless, I never underestimate the power of the voice of the people and the smart people over at ppcgeeks and xda-developers, to name a few (and slickdeals.net). I bet between us and them we can figure out how to get our SERO accounts activated on the Pre. We’ll definitely let you know what we find out!

Here’s to hope!

UPDATE 6/16/2009 – It still appears that nobody has successfully activated a Palm Pre on a SERO account. Let us know in the comments if you know of anyone close, or have any ideas.

Have we helped you? Donate to Fluffy Phones – Anything is appreciated.

The Pre is awesome! I’m typing this comment on a pre at my local sprint store. The only thing that could make this better would be SERO compatability!
