I picked up my first Pre3 on Verizon a little over a year ago, just switched to a second one a few months ago. The first one had signal problems, no signal bars where other phones did, switching fixed that. But I've had some issues that have bugged me since day 1, just want to see if there's anyway to improve or fix these:
1. Calendar-I use the Ubercalender patch and cannot live without it (had it since my Pre2), but when I tap a time to enter an event, the spelling autocorrect doesn't work-for stock things (u=you, i=I, etc) or for ones I have saved. Also, repeating events with reminders fail, I have an event at 1, with a 20 minute before reminder and it simply never goes off. Happens to random events, some work, some don't.
2. I know there's an issue with memory, but I can't use the browser without the whole phone slowing to a crawl, forget about it if I get an email while using the browser-it may take several minutes to respond at all. Music Remix and Navit do the same, it is not possible to use any of those three apps (and others, but these seem to be the worst) at the same time.
Two issues I'm having with this unit:
3. The battery dies around 17%, with a mugen 1400 or the stock battery.
4. Double key entries, random, affects all keys, doubling whatever I type.
I cannot stand Google and will not use a phone that lets them know everything I say, read and do and I cannot use a touchscreen (my TouchPad nearly drives me crazy when I don't use the bluetooth keyboard!), so the iPhone/WP8 are out and it seems pointless to jump from a sunk ship (webOS) to a sinking ship (Blackberry), I want the Pre3 to work, it's great for me in every other way.
