Review: Palm Pre
‹ Back to message list
"On more than one occasion while testing, the "EV" symbol that sits next to the signal strength indicator changed to "R". The user manual tells me this means the Pre was roaming. In all the years I've tested Sprint phones, I have never seen one roam before. The Pre couldn't perform ANY network-dependent activities when the "R" symbol was present. This is goofy behavior that could be attributed to my review unit in particular and it is likely something that could be fixed with a firmware update. I have pinged Palm and Sprint about the issue, but have yet to hear a response.
Rebooting the phone did take care of the problem."
Did you ever receive any response from Palm or Sprint regarding this signal issue? It seems nearly, if not, all Pre users have the same problem! Palm and/or Sprint must correct this problem A.S.A.P. or there will be a flood of returned Pres by July 6 (30 days after launch day purchase).
Please put some pressure on Palm and Sprint to respond to this problem!!!
