Ok, first of all, i looove WebOS but my sprint Pre is falling apart, its to the point that i cant use it to talk on the phone, the earpiece speaker is gone, so i have to put it in speaker phone mode to talk, but that speaker is busted as well and sounds super muffled to the point of not being able to understand people talk, even the ringtones sound like crap. This is my 5th Pre btw, but i cant get this one replaced because this one has physical damage due to me dropping it at work.
I was going to use my upgrade but i waited for CES and then for the february announcements to see if there would be a WebOS device for sprint, and still nothing. I need a new phone, and im leaning towards the new Evo 3d, or even the old Evo now that it's free at best buy when renewing for 2 years.
I recently saw a video where they specifically said the Touchpad doesnt have a cellular radio, its able to answer phone calls and texts by pairing it with a WebOS device through Bluetooth,
So here's my question: Can you pair the Touchpad to use the "phone feature" with ANY WebOS device since its through Bluetooth? Or does the phone need to have a specific version of WebOS? I have been looking for articles to mention this but with no luck! All they show is the TP being paired with a Pre3 and using the "phone capabilities"
Im 90% sure i'll get the Touchpad within a month of its release, but the new Evo 3d comes out tomorrow June 24th and i really need a phone since i havent been able to use my Pre as an actual cell phone. If i find out i can use the Touchpad to answer calls and texts by pairing it with my old faithful Pre-(even with some homebrewing involved), im gonna be upset that i bought a new phone. Should i just wait and get a bluetooth earpiece to use my Pre?
