    Hi there,

    So I'm buying a new phone because my Pre 3's screen broke. It is still FULLY functional, touch screen and everything except that the glass shattered exactly above the proximity sensor, completely covering it, so now when I take a call, the screen goes off and never turns back on unless the call is ended by the other side. I have to take the battery out after every call (OR, use a bluetooth headset/speaker! then everything works because the phone doesn't care about proximity)

    I wish to send the phone to anyone who is interested. The priority is thus:
    1. The guy who made MojoWhatsup & The guy who made google maps
    2. Any other current webOS developer who needs a device for testing and stuff...
    3. Everyone else.

    I only ask that you cover shipping costs for the shipping method of your choice. I think the cheapest method is about 19$US (Hey, It cost me over 700$US).

    If you like, I will also throw in my 3 Thouchstones (one of them is even unopened ).

    I will ship the phone on April 20th.

    Weird question, but isn't that maybe can be simply fixed with a patch that disables the sensor ?

    In theory yes. Unfortunately, there's no such patch.
    I did Install the 'close phone app after hang up' patch but it doesn't help.
    In any case, I was planing to give my phone anyway... It just happen to break two days ago.

    Another small update:
    Making phone calls with simple headphones is enough to make the phone disregard the proximity sensor. So calls with headphones doesn't cause screen to turn off.

    I've already found a source for a new digitizer (screen) so the headphones wouldn't be a problem after I change it. :-)

    Great!
    Being a quasi-dead OS, there are not that many developers out there. So it's probably yours.


    Oops, didn't notice my PM inbox... actually two developers (from category 1 & 2) are interested.
    Sorry tracks914.

    Oh well, I'm still 3rd on the list if the others change their mind. :-P

    Hi, Iīve just received the package with the broken Pre3. Thanks for it, thanks for the support. The phone is enough for developing, which is important mainly for PDK apps (e.g. Navit), because I donīt like to test PDK apps ony my daily used device. Enjoy your new Android phone and donīt forget to webOS...

    Thanks, Jan.

    Thank you for helping our developers. It's a shame that has not bought another pre3. Enjoy your new Android

    Believe me, I'll be the first to buy Pre 4 when it comes out. Android is just awful compered to webOS... I miss the cards soooo much. But in the end, I needed more apps.
