    Hello Pixi people! I wont lie. Im a little nervous and since Im going to lose a ton of apps that my Pre has but will not run on a Pixi+ until we get the missing 1.4.5 update I do feel like its a little bit of a downgrade. But Im excited! Weve switched from Sprint to Verizon because my husbands company gets a discount with Verizon and my Sprint contract is up so now is the time to do it. Had I gotten a Pre+ I would have had to pay a sick deposit so I decided to give the Pixi+ a shot and if I hate it (I dont think I will once the update comes) I can always Ebay a Pre+. A major advantage is my husband who now has a Centro and my kids who have crappy phones (seriously crappy phones) are also getting Pixi+ so its a huge upgrade for them and that makes it worth it. I dont feel like Ill miss the added memory the Pre+ would have given me since Ive lived just fine with my Pre for over a year. The mobile hotspot will be nice and they are wifi unlike Sprint Pixi so Im good there. The only issue is the small screen which Ill adjust to and waiting for the update. The phones will be here on Monday!

    you'll love it after you add preware

    Yes, definately put preware on. I'm on a verizon pixi+ and although i haven't used a pre+ for more than a few minutes, i love the form factor of the pixi and i've gotten used to the lag, it doesn't seem so laggy anymore. Coming from a normal phone without an OS this phone does seem slow to start and use, but when you've been on it a while i don't notice anymore. Good luck! I'm sure the kids will love it.

    You guys need to put Uber Kernel and Govnah on that baby then it will be even faster no OC just runs a lot smoother

    Oh Preware and my patches will be the first thing to go on believe me! I most likely will be putting Uberkernal and Govnah on as well. I have them on my Pre and they make a world of difference. Its like a totally different phone than it was before adding them.

    Nice list! Does the SMS tone per contact patch and the messaging privacy patch work on the Pixi+? If not Ill definitely miss those since I have them on my Pre. I dont use a theme on my Pre right now. I had one installed that I loved and the thing wouldnt delete. Had to dr to get rid of it and I truly hate dr'ing!

    For those of you that never had one, the build quality of the Centro makes the Pre look like BlackBerry quality... which is why Centro was $99 from day one, and the Treo was $399 at launch. The Centro design definitely was missing $300 of durability.

    So hook him up!!! He deserves webOS for finding a catch like you!

    :-)
    LOL! He loves his Centro so much and also loves Blackberry. I cant wait to see how much he loves WebOS! He played Need for Speed on my Pre once and was drooling all night long. Everytime I play he tries taking it from me lol. Now without 1.4.5 neither of us can play it (or Dungeon Hunter which Ill reallyyyy miss!) but Im hoping that will come soon enough *crosses fingers and toes*

    It does, i used to use it. But then i just took it off and just use the normal text for everyone. None of those patches have ever caused problems, i've weeded those out. The sms per contact 2 patch would be better if you wanted to download. Also, i've never had anything stick.

    I do! I was looking for something Final Fantasy/Zelda like and Dungeon Hunter and Hero of Sparta served that need quite nicely thanks to the advice from several people on this board. Not sure what game (if any) like that will work on the Pixi for now. Would like to get a racing one as well since Im losing my Need for Speed and Asphalt 5. Ill have to really check the app catalog when I get the phone and see what I can find to hook myself up until the update *cough* anyday now *cough* this weekend would be ideal *cough* lands. Oh and I also have the NESEM for the Pre but looks like that wont work on the Pixi either so while that would have helped cure my gaming urges that doesnt seem to be an option. Now that Im a soon-to-be Pixi user someone needs to get the Pixi some love for sure!

    I normally use a Verizon Pre Plus I modified to use on Sprint. I'm such a WebOS addict that when I took a trip for a week and a half to Australia, I got a used GSM Pixi (and unlocked it) so I could try out the other form factor. I made another profile just for it so I wouldn't mess up my main phone.

    I got used to the screen size quickly, and I fell in love with the keyboard. The speed seemed fine as well, and there wasn't a stable kernel replacement yet.

    I may sell it at some point, but I'm holding onto it for now.

    Yes, beware that overclocking is not yet available for the Pixi. You will be stuck at stock speeds.

    Although things are definitely looking up - I'd almost expect good overclocking in another month or two.
