    Glad to hear you were able to activate the Pre3 on Verizon. Please give us an update on the phone (PICS) as you discover more about it.

    Now if HP will just sell those Pre3's that they did make....

    they are harder to find and deff more expensive. i'm pretty sure it is just a 3G phone. nowhere does it say LTE.
    (i'm in the Army and they like to stick us out in the middle of nowhere a lot and Verizon is the only way to get reception, so i'm kinda stuck with them)

    What I want to know is...

    Can you FrankenPre it? Can you swap the VZW CDMA radio with one from a Sprint Pre-, or is the radio a different form factor now? (I know you can't with the GSM Pre 3)

    no clue here. (not nearly that advanced here. i basically just know enough to install some home brew/patches)

    I doubt it because they are entirely different phones and hardware. The only reason why it was so easy for the frankenpre was because palm just changed the outside and the inside was the same.

    I don't have a link, but I believe webos internals, and/or others have stated the hardware is not interchangable.

    Post rewritten!
    So, I have a couple of Verizon Pre3s and many veers for sale.
    If you're interested, drop me a line w/ offer. All doctored up to 2.2.3 and ready to go!

    Okay I have gotten way too many PMs about this, none of which had offers in them. So drop me an offer in PM. Thanks+sry

    HOWEVER, he told me that the MEID absolutely has to have been provided to Verizon by the manufacturer of the phone for it to be in their system. If HP canceled the Verizon Pre3 before ever sending the MEID's to Verizon, then as far as Verizon is concerned the phone doesn't exist and can't possibly be activated. The rep made it very clear that it has nothing to do with them 'blocking' the MEID's because the phone was canceled, it's just a matter of whether the MEID's were ever put into the system in the first place. Fortunately he said it's no problem at all to call customer service and ask to have an MEID checked to see if it's valid. Any seller that won't provide the MEID is hiding something.
    MEID and ESN is actually the same thing, except one is in decimal and other is in hex.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLI T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    Do you really have Verizon Pre3's for sale? I want one. Don't know how to PM from forums though.

    I wonder why so many AT&T Pre3's are hitting eBay, and only a tiny handful of Verizon models (really, so far as I've read it's been like 3)? Are the floodgates about to open on the Verizon units? The sudden presence of the Verizon 2.2.3 webos doctor really gives me pause.

    Like kar1179 I'm wondering whether I should open the unlocked AT&T Pre3 I'm receiving tomorrow, or just put it back up on EBay unopened. Very torn. I still have my Verizon contract to deal with somehow... I was willing to leave to get a Pre3, but would rather stay (I've been a Verizon Wireless customer since before Verizon Wireless existed, and have no wish to leave aside from my obsession with getting a Pre3)
