    Helloooo ????? All the stocks of qwerty phones are probably taken by the uk telecom companies such as vodafone.

    So you spit on eurostore for giving you the opportunity to get the phone even though it is azerty ?? You know what these azerty phones were for the France market to begin with and not the UK.

    So please stop being silly

    How did you verify the address? Just tell it to them again? I tried to buy from Kickmobile the first time around when they "ran out" and cancelled my order. Then I went to try to buy again at the higher price and for some $#@! reason Paypal rejected my CC#. Paypal refused to even try to authorize the transaction with the bank just flat refused to use any CC I had. I called them and they said it was due to some top secret security check and they couldn't do anything to help me my only recourse was to link my checking account to paypal and pay that way (wasn't going to do that), or apply for a paypal credit card and use that(takes too long).

    So I ended up wiring the money to kickmobile yesterday morning, not sure how long it takes to go international though they should be able to ship me my Pre3 soon.

    I figure if paypal is rejecting my CC#s for kickmobile they probably won't take them for any other ebay purchases. I had read lots of horror stories about paypal over the years and cancelled my account with them many, many years ago. I signed up again solely for the pre3, and was beginning to think maybe paypal isn't so bad, and then they pull this.

    I suspect I may of gotten flagged because I tried to buy ~$1000+ of Pre3s first from clove, then from kickmobile both resulted in the transactions getting canceled and refunded, maybe paypal didn't like that. Not my fault though!

    I opened a new checking account with my bank on the same day with the intension of linking THAT to paypal and funding it instead of my main accounts, but then the bank said it would take 3-5 days for everything to get processed before I could actually use it.

    I got another Pre3 from Greece this morning, an AZERTY one. I wasn't expecting AZERTY but then I went and checked the ebay auction and it did say AZERTY, so far it's not too difficult to get used to. Though if my other Pre3 ends up being QWERTY I'll use that and keep the AZERTY as a backup.

    I just fired up my pre3 on my main palm profile and was surprised to see the number of my apps and games download to it, I haven't counted them but it seems like most of them are there, unlike the Veer which only got a small fraction of them. The 8GB really is tight for storage, after my apps/games I only have 3.5GB left (I think the phone comes with only about 5.6GB usable without any extra things installed).

    Just finished backing up all of the apps from my pre3, now going to do full erase, sign the pre3 in to another profile, and restore the apps(I know I won't get updates - doesn't matter), and put my pre2 back on my main profile for now.

    I haven't tried touch to share yet but was doing a bit of SMS via the TP this morning it was pretty neat.

    desperate times..

    Once I get my Pre3 today, I'll have to grab a regular sized SIM from one of my older phones. Currently using an iPhone 4 and they have those lame microSIMS. Hopefully, I don't run into issues activating it with AT&T.

    I read somewhere that you could fit a microSIM since it is so tight. worth the try

    You can get little plastic trays for the micro sims from amazon/ebay etc. Means that you aren't jamming it into the slot and possibly getting it stuck or breaking your SIM.

    I found a sim adapter at a "cell phone accessory" store yesterday for $10 US (5 cents of plastic). Took my iPhone microsim and put it into my new HP Veer 4G. The phone immediately went to "Missing SIM - SOS Mode". I rebooted the phone. It actually rebooted on its own 2 more times and then came back online fully functional, HSPA mode, iPhone number and all.

    What will be interesting is that I have a grandfathered "unlimited" data plan on that sim. I wonder of "A tea and tea" will squeek at me? Prolly not unless I go over some magic "heavy user" line in the sand. It drives me crazy that they sell you a bottle of unlimited water but you're not allowed to pour it into a glass to drink. LOL

    Can't you just go to your carrier store and ask for a new SIM? I don't think they charge for that (at least AT&T doesn't)

    Chatted with AT&T rep last night online, he told me to bring the phone into a store. Since I've been on an iPhone 4, I have some modifications I have to do to my plan. I didn't get all the info because I lost connection. Looking on their website, they charge like $5.25 for a new SIM. I do have a couple extra so I'll be bringing those in this afternoon when I get off work.

    Get the new sim, It's HSPA+ compatable. Not all of the older ones are.
    Course, with the UK Pre 3 it won't matter, but for the Veer it will.

    Oh... didn't know that. I looked at them. 1 is out of a USB wireless air-card and the other is from my old Tilt2. They both had the 3g logo on them from what I could tell. Is there any other identifiers I should look for?
