Deleting e-mails

I noticed that when I delete an e-mail from my inbox, it goes to the trash where I have to delete it again. Is there a way to set this up so that I don't have to delete an e-mail twice?

Pauses in a phone number

On my BB Pearl, I was able to have a contact be my work voicemail where I would have the phone dial a phone number, pause for 5 seconds, dial my extension, pause another few seconds and then dial my password. Is there a way to insert "pauses" into a phone number on the Pre? I can't figure this one out. On the BB, it looked sort of like this:

666-6666 pp 123456 p 1234 where each p (pause) was a 2.5 second delay

This Phone is Pimp

So far so good. Just got mine today will post a review as soon as I get a chance. But the phone is incredible if your thinking about getting one. Dont! Just head down to Sprint and buy it! I was on the fence early this morning but after I toyed with it for a while I knew I found a keeper till the Pro 2 drops I'll be using the new web os. Running multiple cards and this thing bearly hiccups. "The Palm Pre is Solid" Twisted Evil

Palm car charger

When I picked my Pre up yesterday at the Sprint store, I was told that if you wanted a car charger you had to use the one made by Palm. Now, working in the electronics field I know that company's say this all the time so that you buy their products. But, I was hoping that the igo products sold mostly at Radioshack, would work with the phone. When I looked it up on their website it did not have the Pre listed. I know they make a micro usb tip but is the voltage different? Anyone know if igo will work with this phone?

OK..Lets Get it Strait

Hello all...Writing this b/c there is much confusion about this phone. I am a preferred retailer and am currently testing this phone as part of a trial program. Have only had it for a day but all i have to say is its CRACK. Im by no means a fan of any service as I think they all have their ups and downs so im gunna try and not to be biased.

Firstly i think the Iphone is one of the most innovative phones to date and any phone that has been released so far has not even approached what the iphone is capable of. That being said, the Palm Pre IS the next big phone. They have taken all of the best features of the iphone and went one step further. Everyone knows the features by now so im not going to discuss features, you guys will just ...

Did You Test These Functions?!

I have had the Palm 600, 650, & 700p, and they all have had the same problems or have the same good features. None of these were discussed in the Pre review. So maybe someone can answer these questions for me.

How does the Pre handle Call Waiting? Does the phone allow you to manage both calls with little to no confusion?

How far back does the Call Log go, for All Calls (Incoming, Outgoing, Missed)?

How do you Reset the Pre, WHEN it crashes?!

Can you Text and Surf the web, while on a phone call?

Can you do Picture Mail in the normal fashion?

Can you Send information via Bluetooth, from one cell to another?

Will past Palm applications work on the new WebOS?

Is there a Flash Player on the Pre, or some application to view...

Are You Kidding Me

Rumor has it that this phone is supposed to go up against the likes of the iPhone. By saying that it can sync with iTunes... sorry but thats not enough for hard core fans of Apple products to swap over to this phone with a smaller screen. Can it sync my iCal can it sync my iPhotos, can it work on Mobile Me. All they can come up with is "It will sync with iTunes"....Ya I'll be the 1st one in line for this phone....NOT
Didnt Sprint also have a phone that was supposed to come up against the iPhone awhile ago? I can tell that one was a big hit.... Razz

Ok Ok.....A Question...

I just saw a video of someone using the Pre to cut cheese. Is the bottom really THAT sharp, or are people really just nitpicking?

The phone looks nice, but i wont have full rebate status till August, so I might wait, as much as I HATE HATE HATE HATE my Mogul....
