Anonymous, 15 Jul 2010worst phone ever...same goes for the pixi..damn all this phones..caused so much issues..they... moreyeah theres way better phones, best thing about the palm phones is the webos, you can thank hp for that one, they bought palm, the ONLY THING ACTUALLY MADE ORIGIONALLY BY PALM is the os
worst phone ever...same goes for the pixi..damn all this phones..caused so much issues..they're all rubbish...
I have had 5 Palm Treo's before the Palm Pre.
One of them I still carry as well, because the Pre is just very unreliable.
I work with this phone and use for email, sms and calls.
No games installed.....
What is mainly very disturbing is that you can only do things when connected to the internet.
Great when you stay at home, or always in range of a cell network, which isn't always the case.
No way that you can sync with outlook, unless doing it by having a web account that stores all your contacts and agenda data, like google.
You actually buy a phone, and the rest has to be sorted out by yourself with third party software.
Great.....when you have a factory unlocked palm Pre like me. Through my country and network provider I am stopped to go to the App catalog to get the software needed.
I had to install through developer mode and other tricks that most users are not able to do.
So...even the third party software isn't available to users like me.
batterie life is extremely bad....less then 8 hours..while my old treo's did 24 hours.
You always run out of power every day, unless you carry your charger with you next to the phone.
Backups can only be made through Palm website....
May I choose myself please? Am I the owner of the phone? Or did I rent it from Palm?
Do not use it on the charger and surf the net.....you will eventually burn your hands on the batterie.
Handy for cooking an egg, but i want a "smart" phone.
This phone is the baddest one I ever had, the developers of it do not use phones themselves i reckon.
Smart phones should be developed by "smart" guys...
It looks fancy....that is it..useless for the rest.
My Treo's were fine, especially at the days past when smart phones were rare.
I believed that Palm would use the experience and made the Treo even better with the Pre.
In fact, they lost it completely...
Mine is for sale...although I would feel guilty to put someone up with this thing. probably use it in the kitchen for cooking..
Don't buy the palm pre.
Best phone I've had, WebOS do a better job than iPhone's OS. Don't listen to the other reviews, you'd love it if you know how to use a phone, there are also update releases every now and then unlike other phones you wait half a year, so bugs are fixed instantly. Flash 10.1 will also be coming to the Pre soon which supports the GPU accelerator the Pre has so you'd be getting the best out of mobile browsing. I really have a softspot for Palm as they've made an amazing job on the WebOS platform but not many people know about it, I just love WOWing my friends, it's a great piece of hardware and software although the screen build isn't as great (get's scratched easily although it's glass) so get a screen protector.
Overall amazing phone, I love the gestures it's simply unique as no other phones have them, Apple love bumping their customers as they couldn't care less due to the amount of demand they get because of mindless people who only go for the company that seems popular. Palm Pre is like an iPhone 5G, it's just a shame the company kind of went downhill, I hope the coalition with HP changes that.
the worst phone i have ever had. had an iphone before this and shud have stuck with it. the battery life is extremely poor and now it is starting to slow down even tho i still have 5gb of memory left. the apps are also very boring and the fone freezes all the time. i also find that i have to restart the fone to get txt messages to come through to my inbox. extremely ppor fone and no wonder palm has went bust
I have my palm pre for 6mnths now and have more problems with this phone than I ever did with my rant. I am on my 2nd refrub and I am very disgusted with it. Sprint wants to do a hard set but I run a business with my phone so therefor I can't lose any of my stuff. They told me to back it up but we have tried several times to do that and the only thing that is kept is my pictures and e-mails. I am at the point I hate this phone. I liked it for the first 3months but it has been nothing but problems
I bought this phone in december 09 and it was the worst purchase ive ever made in my life! Endless faults and haing to b sent back to the manufacturer and i was with out a phone for 3 - 4 weeks at a time. The reception is rubbish, turns itself off when it wants, cuts calls off, freezes etc. Just awful. PLEASE TAKE MY ADVICE AND DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE, ONCE YOUVE SIGNED INTO A CONTRACT YOUR STUCK WITH IT! I wouldnt even give it a 1 out of 10!
lokizz, 14 May 2010i love this phone the only prob i had was the baterry would last me 2 to 3 hoursThe Pre simply needs to have the brightness in its settings moved to the absolute minimum as they made a super bright screen which eats the battery.I saw this mentioned somewhere else and I have done it.ONLY doing this has meant that the battery is comparable if not BETTER than an iphone 3GS's.Try it - apart from that it is a lovely little good looking and much more different than anything else in the market. I truly love mine.
hi all is it possible to make a video call on the palm pre. i've got my pre for 5months now and i'm loving it.
Battery life was horrible..construction as well..went thru 6 pre phones in six month period.. always had headphone jack issues or glitches due to apps. Rep told me its not really designed to be an app phone and would not tell you which app was causing problems. This thing was horrible.
i love this phone the only prob i had was the baterry would last me 2 to 3 hours
release Numerical Keypad Phones not all persons comfortable with touch and Qwerty keyboard phones.... Thank You

all palm fans the company was sold to hp for 1billion $$$$ so hp bought palm
the worst decision i have ever made. the worst worst phone ever. had it for 5 months and is gone for repair twice!!!!!!!! unbelievable
Anonymous, 12 Apr 2010Had this for 10 days....fab phone till Palm sent thru software update which has killed it. A ... moreGive me a break. I have this phone since September last year and I haven't had a SINGLE problem or issue with it! The software updates from Palm are regular, bug free and always pleasantly surprising. Btw, the IPhone is way worse than the Pre or Pixi! They just have more resources (read: money) and that's how they can brainwash any airhead out there.
