Palm Pre (CDMA)
Pre feature questions...
Does the Pre now have text forwarding?
Can you group text?
Can you play movies or video in quick time format. For example, can I convert a dvd to watch on the pre?
Has the battery life improved with the updated OS?
How difficult is it to homebrew the phone? What types of things does it open the phone to?
Any help would be great. trying to decide between pre and and Android phone like the Moment or Hero.
I can't understand the negative reviews
Having used iPhones, BlackBerries, and Nokias, the Pre beats all of them easily, and it has a platform that will only make it better.
More folks need to step up and give this great phone a great review. I am going to do my part right now.

Palm Pre or HTC Hero?
How long does the battery life actually last?
Some minor annoyances
2. Accelerometer stopped working, had to do a battery pull (a la Blackberry) to get it started again
3. Some system sounds stop playing (like the one when you close a card)
All these are software related, and hopefully will be fixed with the next OS update.

And I noticed the batteries capacity is only 1150mAh, it would be nice if it was more like 1500mAh.
And I noticed in the bluetooth doesn't support object push (OPP).
So what are all your thoughts about the Pre?
Palm Pre on SERO Website!!!
1. You can purchase the phone on your existing account - sprint asks you to enter your phone number into the website and then you can upgrade your phone. It immediately tells you that your plan will not work for the phone and it is essential to upgrade to a new plan (one of which is the $59.99 everything plus plan). However, Sprint does not allow you to do this on the website - I am assuming they make you call them upon receiving the phone in the mail. Does anyone know if it is possible to j...
I'd prefer not to have to renew my contract, but if so I don't want to change plans.

Oh and make sure you have downloaded version 1.0.4 for the Pre. It fixed a few battery drain issues and some other small bugs.
In 6 months you're going to hear a conversation that goes like this
Guy 1: "What iPhone is that?"
Guy 2: "This isn't the iPhone THIS is the Palm Pre!"
Guy 1: "I've never heard of the Palm Pre."
Guy 2: "That's because the iPhone 3GS came out before anyone heard of the Pre"
Guy 1: "Do you like it"
Guy 2:"ehh, I would rather have the 3GS but I bought into the hype that everyone was making about the Pre"
Guy 1: "Isn't that what you did with the Blackberry Storm too?"
Guy 2:"Don't remind me"
