    Hello,

    Just been playing around with my new Pre and I LOVE it. However,
    there are some things I noticed. Here it goes:

    1) Bluetooth transfers. I have read that it's not possible to receive or
    send files through bluetooth. Is there a patch or anything that could fix this?
    2) App catalog doesn't work. I use wifi and have data connection disabled. When it
    tries to connect to it, I get "The action could not be completed. Try again later." or some message about connection not available.
    3) When I click on the notification bar, the date format is shown rather than the date itself,
    all I see is "Fri 2011 '16'. MMMM d '9'.", what should I change to fix this?
    4) Contact deletion. I can only delete the contact when I open it and select 'delete' from
    the dropdown list. Is there any setting to enable 'swipe to the side to delete'?
    5) Where can I get original Pre theme? Or is it just wallpapers?
    6) Screen protector. I have seen PDair, Skinomi, Vikuti.. Which one to choose? I have read about zagg too, is it worth paying 25$ for full protection?

    Sorry for such a long post, I hope you guys will understand me.

    1) Nope...
    2) Did you activate the phone using the usual first use way and created / logged in with a palm profile the default way? The app cat works with wifi only, too. I'm very sure I tried that on some of my devices (not necessarily the Pre3, tough, but definitively also 2.x).. the app cat is a bit nasty from time to time... so maybe??
    3) There is something wrong....? For me the Pre3 gets the time from the GSM network... did you never have a connection to cellular network? Maybe that's a problem then.
    4) Not that I know... I also don't think that there is a patch for that, but it should be possible to patch.
    5) If you had a 1.4.* Pre then the look is main difference in the look is, because you now have webos 2.2.X and it just looks different. But the wallpaper changed, too... I would not suggest using the Pre one, because of the different resolution. But it should be easy to find a wallpaper in 800x480, because it's the usual resolution for smartphones for some years now.
    6) I don't use a protector on my device, because the gorilla glass is pretty scratch resistent and I don't like how the protectors modify the touch & feel and also the look... but that's just my personal feeling.

    2) Yes, I had to create HP webOS account, if that's what you mean?
    3) Hmm, I don't know about this one, everything seems to be working.. I can send and receive sms/calls, so I guess it isn't the problem?.

    Also, I forgot to mention one more thing - the phone restarts after plugging in headphones, which comes with the phone.. This also happens when I plug in my old Nokia headset, but not with the big ones I use at the pc. Have this ever happened to anybody?
    Oh, and could someone recommend nice ringtone? Default one is quite ugly.. And the rest aren't much better.

    I might be able to help with some of your q's:

    1) I've been able to receive files sent from my PC by bluetooth to my Pre3 without any patches/issues. I haven't seen the function to send files from the Pre3 by bluetooth. I haven't seen a patch for this. You can request this on the Patch threads?

    2) Have you tried creating a new profile and logging in on the phone? there might be a problem with your profile that's restricting your app catalog access.

    3) Might be a problem with a patch that modifies that area. Have you run Preware to see if any patches are installed that change the items displayed in that area?

    4) Good suggestion for a patch. I don't delete contacts that often.

    5) Have you checked the Themes threads? The wallpapers should be available at the minimum.

    6) I use the Skinomi full body protection...a major pain to apply, I wasn't able to do this perfectly on my Pre3. Changes the look quite a bit, hasn't affected my usability, though I still need to wipe away fingerprints. Btw...while the screen is quite tough, it can still crack.

    The headphones issue sounds really odd. I haven't had an issue like that with any of the headphones I've used. have you tried doctoring the phone?

    2) I tried using impostah to create a new profile and now it shows 'App catalog country = US' but still the same. Tried rebooting several times - nothing. Is there any logs that I could take a look at?

    3) Yes. Now I have installed menu mix patch (or something like that) and have date as a carrier string, so that is fixed.

    5) I'll check there.

    6) Damn it, one of the main reasons I wanted protection for was the fingerprints all over the phone.

    I'll try doctoring it. It may resolve app catalog issue too.

    EDIT:
    Here is the ringtone compilation, if anyone interested.
