the phone is great but if u can put designs on it well maybe u can but im talkin about designs u would like. i especialy like it because you dont have to pay for internet u can just go wifi i mean not a lot of fones do that. personaly i think its like the I Touch just a bit better.
people are right it does have a lot of bug but i KNOW HOW TO GET RID OF THEM just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. the only reason y im not tellin is because if i doto may people are going to say they came up with the idea because i found a 3 special apps that if u use em at the same time it reboots ur system and destoys all the bugs.
and no you dont put the formula of pie in the calculator. just remember this god damn idea is mine so just email and i will tell u how to fix it personally and when i say that i mean i will be online with u and dont start trippin when u find out that im 12 because if u email me about how did i figure this out based on the fact of how old i am.
im just going to tell u some bull crap on how to fix the palm pre
mo, 24 Nov 2009Has anyone had trouble with their palm pre screen going black during a call and only being abl... moreYes, it is happening a lots, this is one of the reasons I sent back all 2 I ordered.
I hd been tried 2 of those and both with problems such slowy software, bad calling and reception calls, if you intend to use it as a pocketpc forget because it is very far away to be. I realy sorry Palm but you guys must need to think about to upgrade many things as I said nice look but bad in functions.

One thing I did notice though and I doubt I could get used to it was the severe lag in the media player as use my HERO for playing podcasts, the ability to link up all ur social networking is no longer new as the HERO did that ages ago but the automatic backup of ur contacts onto the GMAIL server if u use it is brilliant...
I just wish the HERO browser was remotely good as Safari for example, please HTC, sort this out in ur next firmware update, Eclair, Donut, Popcorn, Cookie or whatever the hell u wanna call it :D
I work for CPW and we had an o2 rep come in and give us a quick demo of the device, overall I personally felt it was very good software wise ( being an HTC Hero user ) though the keyboard was a lil bit too fiddly for me and I dont have builder's hands. Some of the touch screen gestures were quite pleasant and useful, and the apps had some quirky little gimmicks such as compressing the calenders when u have appointments or when ur in mid-call and the entire phone doesnt switch to the phone function automatically but subtly indicates which is great in the bottom corner.
OK the handset isn't a powerhouse like the HD2 or N900s but it isnt designed to be, its a simple handset with some unique features that many phone companies neglect to think people really use... Im personally torn between an HD2 ( though this pink screen fault has put me off ) and the N900 ( who the heck is gonna sell it on contract ) but the Pre would be a great phone for someone who wants Iphone ease of use but with a keyboard...
Has anyone had trouble with their palm pre screen going black during a call and only being able to end the call by removing the battery. This is the second phone I have had and 02 say it is not a common fault, but it seems to be too much of a coincidence.
please let me know so I can choose another phone
Well, I gotta say Pre is a very very good-looking phone. Its OS is very finger-friendly! This one is my ultimate no.1 when it comes to a touchscreen phone with a (non-side) sliding QWERTY keyboard.
Anonymous, 11 Nov 2009Can anyone tell me how many social network messenger palm supports ? 1. to forward text: simply tap on the text and a drop down menu would appear.

Have been waiting so long for this GSM Palm Pre to either Singapore or Malaysia. How come it takes so long time to reach here??? Latest technology will become outdated spec when it reach here... sad..
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2009does anyone know how to forward txt messages on this phone If you have a CDMA Pre then download the v1.3.1 update that was just released today and you'll be able to.
If you have a GSM Pre then you will probably have to wait until the end of November.
Can anyone tell me how many social network messenger palm supports ?
Ho hum, still waiting for a review from GSMArena.
It's been out in Europe now for at least a month and not a word.
Many have compared it favourably to the Iphone, but not a word.
It's got a totally new operating system, but not a word.
It's apparently selling quite well, certainly in larger numbers than some phones reviewed here, but not a word.
It's not even that I'm definitely going to buy one, but I want to see what GSMarena think of it since their reviews are the most in-depth.
Why won't you review this phone GSMArena?
I am one of the first Palm Pre pre pay pro plus platinum premium pay plan previewists.

That said, this little gadget is amazing. Genuinely, as a strong supporter of SE normally, I took the plunge and came away from the Satio (I had a C905) and decided to trial the Pre.
Camera for a 3.2 MP thing is great. Flash, zoom etc. All I need.
MP3 player - superb!
8GB memory - all I need.
Touchscreen -better than the iPhone (O2 shop versions are not so good)
The sync ability to take all facebook, emails and contacts, find all info on them and drop em into one place is astounding.
In summary, a very very good foil to the iphone - the Apps catalogue growing daily (and for the most part FREE too)
Go try it out.
Very simple to use - nothing fancy!
Those who review the Palm Pre have not “owned” the phone nor used it for an extensive period of time like me. This phone was an upgrade (Sprint) and my primary communication device. When I first purchased mine, I did like it a lot, the touch screen was very nice, the size of the phone fit in my pocket well, the sound quality was good on phone calls, screen resolution very nice as well.
Now for the bad news. After using this phone exclusively for almost 3 weeks the phone simply shut off on it’s own. Yes it turned itself OFF. I would restart phone by pushing the appropriate button and then it took almost 5 minutes to turn on! When I tried to open the keyboard by sliding it open, many times it abruptly turned itself OFF again. Apparently (I showed this to the rep at Best Buys) when I slid the screen open to expose the keyboard and touched on one of the keys such as the space bar or period button simultaneously it would shut down! The phone would be idle for a while and when I tried to use it, it was completely shut off, not functional what soever! At this point it took at least 5 minutes to reboot or turn on again. This happened with a “complete battery charge”. What a major DISAPPOINTMENT!!! I am no alone, my daughters babysitter is on her SECOND Palm Pre which does the same annoying thing!! Sorry Palm but I went with the HTC. A much nicer solid (not plastic feel) but am presently experiencing problems with voice mail when it is downloaded on the phone, the software is freezing my phone. The HTC can store all messages into memory on the phone for playback like a tape recorder but has a “BUG”. I dial into my voice mail box until HTC or Sprint corrects this bug. When I initiated this voice mail feature, the phone prompted :looking for ugrade” which I had no choice but to select OK then trouble began. It started to download and would not stop, even overnight. While on a recent trip, I tried to use the voice mail feature, but it “froze up’ the phone. I had to do a phone reset to get it to work again but then lost all my contacts and downloads. After using both phones as my primary communication device (I am wireless at home), I will stick with the HTC. The Palm Pre has too many issues for me. Paul in Indy
