    More and more I am thinking VZW might release Pre3 this summer or fall. And thus might skip 2.1 for Pre2 as cost wise, it may not be worth it for them to quality check it for the number of users.

    I'd be curious to hear the number of Pre 2s VZW has sold so far. Can't be that many.

    I can't imagine that the cost would be that much. They will release 2.1 i mean why wouldn't they .. they have released every other update that was released to them. there are always people that say they won't at every update but really come on .. this is what verizon does .. for every OS .. the only one we can't compare is IOS and i guess time will tell on that one. they aren't quick to release android or blackberry updates either. oh well -- it will happen

    I cobbled together a meta-doctor based on the Verizon PrePlus 2.1 script.

    Works great. Left the makefile the way it was and just modded the script (attached). Mine's got a Sprint radio board in it, but it should work just fine on a stock VZW Pre2.

    Has anyone else tried this successfully on a stock Verizon Pre2 as suggested above? Are there any downsides (other than the bugs in 2.1 that aren't in 2.0.1) to using the metadoctor to circumvent the fact that Verizon hasn't released the update? Does this impact your service in any way?

    I realize that many say the update from 2.0.1 -> 2.1 isn't worth the effort and additional glitches, but there's just something about feeling trapped by Verizon that makes me want to try it anyway. =)

    The pop3 email bug is a major problem for me.
    FWIW, I set up a gmail account that pulls a copy of my POP3 email account. I sync that to my phone, and if I can't open the message in the POP3 inbox, there is always a second copy that I can open from Gmail. Stupid that I had to work around that bug... but it has been better than nothing. If I hadn't been able to find a workaround, I may have had to go back to my Pre+.

    It's one of the fixes I'm "expecting" in the next release on VZW, and I'll be really peeved if it isn't fixed.

    VZW is prolly not releasing 2.1 and instead will wait and release the same version that will hit on the Pre 3. Just my guess.

    Nah, VZ will release 2.1 for the Pre 2 in June when the Veer is released so VZ will have something to announce since they won't have the Veer ...

    So, is it worth updating to 2.1 for the Pre2 via Doctor? Anyone done this?

    You know, I barely use it. I could see using it more if I had a BT, but I don't. I found some numbers are just hard to figure out. It would be better if you could train it like the old skool feature phones. I find saying my girlfriends first and last name a little odd when I finally figured it out, a month later.

    I kept trying to say "Call Cathy"....phone says "Calling Todd King"...drove me nuts and I forgot about it, until the one day the epiphany hit me
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2 about anything. I may however, give a nickel

    LOL - you could just change her entry to "Cathy" without a last name.

    Has anyone done this with their Verizon Pre 2? I might consider it, just for the pop email issue. Not really impressed with the voice dialing or exhibition stuff.

    All the bugs your all mentioning are still on 2.1. I have a Verizon Franken Pre 2 with 2.1 and they are ALL there.

    2.1 on my Vzw Pre+ doesn't have the problem with the pop emails of the black box showing up. I can see the whole email on 2.1.

    Looks like I will be getting my 4th Verizon Pre+ replacement next week. The power button is almost non functional. So here is a thought I am having. I would like to try the meta-doctor file I created weeks ago to upgrade to 2.1. If I did this on my phone with the failing power button, could it have any effect on my Palm profile and transfer of information and programs to the new phone when it arrives. Also, would that be a good time to meta-doctor the new phone before it is activated?
    Thanks for the help.

    I would wait for the new phone, activate it with 1.4.5 then meta it to 2.1. Your going to have to setup everything when you meta so you might as well only do it once.

    Thanks for the reply. I guess the only reason I was thinking of trying it on the phone that will be replaced is because I have been reluctant to do it on my only phone. Figured if it worked ok on the phone that is being returned, I could then activate the new phone with 1.4.5 and then use the same meta-doctor on the new phone before I resorted my backups.

    Thanks again for the help.
