Palm Pre

Okay - who all here has the palm pre?

I just got mine this weekend and I have a serious love/hate relationship with it and currently am using my old treo until I can address my issues with sprint

I know Amber has one...

anyway, my big issue is my SIGNAL. it drops from 1 bar to no bars for about a minute, then roams then comes back full bars then settles on 2 bars.. while im not moving. Just sitting on my desk. Last night when I was txting a friend it just dropped completely for 2 minutes before being like OH MYBAD HERES YOUR SERVICE. Is anyone else having this problem?

Its a lame thread, Im sorry.. I dont want to dig around google trying to find a palm pre forum with unhelpful tards I dont know ;)

yay and nay, lol. I love it, I REALLY DO OMG. The reception just sucks, lol.. and I totally spent near retail for it because I didnt get the mail in rebate. (which is why my husband wouldn't buy it when it came out, he didnt want to spend over $200 on a phone.. I dont blame him, but but but!)

I have 30 days to return it, though.. if they cant fix the service thing before then, I may have to return it and wait until its fixed & I can get the rebate/the price drops on it.

I have it and love it!!! I haven't had any problems with reception. It is a little slow when opening new applications (like Navigation) but it doesn't bother me.

For some reason Sprint wasn't able to transfer my data from my Instinct to this so I am having to manually transfer phone numbers which is taking FOREVER.

another iPhone user that doesn't give a fuck as long as he can listen to the iPod while texting.

who cares about palm pre's application switching when you have nothing to switch between..

Yesh I did.

The specs are different. There is supposedly a faster processor, moar RAM, and slightly better camera (3 MP vs. 2 MP).

I'm pretty sure that the other stuff is doable on iPhone 3G with the software upgrade.

Oh yesh, voice commands. You can do some fun stuff with that. I was getting irritated with my phone because it wasn't interpreting my voice commands correctly, so I told it, "Fuck off!" It called my cousin.

To all the haters, when the iphone first came out there were like no apps for it either..

Id use the iphone, if I didnt have sprint... but I have absolutely no plans to switch back to the att failboat. Our AT&T service BLEW.. I have a friend with an iphone and he has horrible service with it as well (the new one, too, he keeps upgrading out of desperation and hope, lol) and the service is just crap. so, since sprint (otherwise) doesnt suck for reception, Im staying with them At least now I get a signal some place besides the att store

I read somewhere some people have issues and a vast majority dont.. and the ones that do will get theirs when they do a new software upgrade and it fixes the bugginess for *some* people.

this is true. because the iPhone didn't launch with an App Store, and thus that wasn't a big deal at the time. however, the Pre is the 'iPhone killer' with its own app store... and it has virtually nothing.

however, when the App Store did launch, it had over 500 applications. far more than the pre does now.

additionally, "the haters?" really?

iphone would have a way bigger audience if they didn't tie themselves down to the fail that is at&t. It really sucks that they have the best phones, because I will not use their service. Sprint desperatley needs more phone options.

lol, I meant that with as much humor as possible. "Dont hate, appreciate"

I think palm doing their app store so early with no apps was a DUMB move, though. I DO think its neat when I plug it to either of my computers, it opens iTunes.. and attaches as an ipod...

I agree.. I only stayed with at&t until right before the iphone was first released.. for the phones. I dont regret switching.. I like being able to use my phone in more places And the iphone being att only for so long is massive failure.

Nicole-

I got the Pre when it launched (upgraded from the Centro) and I adore it! I do notice my bars don't light up as much (I have one bar at home on the Pre where on my Centro I'd have 3 or 4) but that hasn't changed my ability to make or keep a call at all. I have also noticed that switching to a new app takes a few seconds but it's not like it's super slow or annoying or anything. I think it's a cool phone!
