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).

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.
