    Hey everyone. First post here.

    So I pulled the trigger and got an AT&T Pre 3. I'm very excited but wondering about one detail. The seller says that it has 8GB of flash memory. I even clarified this with her. I thought that the AT&T model was just 16GB. Am I just mistaken or probably her?

    Thank you.

    The AT&T model is only 16 GB, she must be mistaken.

    Uhh -- you definitely want to see the back of the phone to make sure it is AT&T branded. She might be selling the unbranded unlocked UK version which IS 8 GB and DOES work on AT&T, but it not the "AT&T model"..

    In that listing it says "Memory16", perhaps implying that it is 16 GB? The photos look fairly generic, it may be worthwhile to ask to see a photo of the back of it next to your name written on paper or something, and/or more details of the box which should have 16 GB listed somewhere.

    Yeah I was thinking of asking her that. Strange thing is that she says the manual also says 8 GB.

    That there suggests Euro Pre3 to me.

    Good catch. Either way, this person clearly doesn't seem to know enough about the product that they are selling. :P

    Yeah I need to message her. The positive side of me is just hoping that she copied and pasted the stats from a euro model. The more I think about it the more plausible it gets. I don't believe the outside case would show carrier bands and my pre 2 box didn't have a GB listed. Thank god I love webOS or this would be too much stress.

    well, I can say that I am selling an EU Pre 3 with 8 GB of memory inside it and it works darn well for 3G on AT&T's 1900 MHz band. The battery cover/back even says AT&T on it .
    Point I'm making is anyone can change out the back/battery cover. Does it make it an AT&T Pre 3 NO it doesnt.

    The reason this EU Pre 3 I have for sale comes with the AT&T branded back/battery cover is simple. The back from the EU Pre 3 I'm selling happens to hold my AT&T Pre 3 on to my automobile touchstones when dealt with potholes and speedbumps.The AT&T branded one doesn't remain attached to the Touchstones in my cars as well.

    There's a bit of variation in the amount of grab the Pre 3 backs and the older model touchstones exhibit with each other

    BTW its not a difference between the backs on the AT&T and EU Pre 3's specifically, but rather its that every back (no matter whether its from an AT&T Pre 3 or from an EU Pre 3) apparently has just a tad bit more or less magnitism when paired with different touchstones.

    Haha thank you for the response. Suffice to say I'm even more confused Well her pictures show AT&T packaging and branding so I don't know what to think now.

    Well at least if worse comes to worse I can send it back because it isn't an AT&T Pre 3 as she had claimed.

    I shall be replacing my EU Pre3 with an AT&T (16GB) Pre3, but I am not looking forward to having the AT&T branding on the back.

    Maybe I will do it too if I buy AT&T Pre3.

    Swap it with what. Do you mean with my Euro Pre3's back cover? That wouldn't really solve the problem since I intend on keeping that too.

    yeah. Or I guess you could wait till someone's Pre 3 breaks down and is stripped for parts.

    Could someone please verify what all AT&T branding is present on the AT&T Pre3. Other than the AT&T logo on the back cover, that is.
