Verizon Pre2, WebOS 2.0.1, Not quite 2 weeks old.
I installed the Ubercalendar patch and though I liked it, it seemed to slow down my calendar dramatically so I uninstalled it. In hindsight, I now realize that Ubercalendar itself may not have been slow, but rather an installation glitch corrupted something (possibly my palm profile, since full erase and doctoring have not corrected the problem).
Now when I open the stock calendar app (or Ubercalendar - I've installed/uninstalled many times on my quest to recover), only certain functions work and even those are very slow - 30 seconds to a couple minutes to respond.
Clicking on a time or day does nothing, but I can eventually add an event from the menu... sort of - it never actually shows up on the device, but seems to save in the cloud. For example, I added an event to my exchange calendar and though it never appeared on the phone, it did show up on my desktop PC.
I've done full erases from the device menu, WebOS doctored a couple times, and tried uninstalling/installing the patch multiple times in both Preware and WebOS quick Install, but the failure remains.
Palm support spent some time with me and decided it was a hardware issue and that I should have it replaced at Verizon, but that seems hard to believe. Nobody stocks these things, so I'm left to order and wait (which I need my manager to do since it's on a business account), but I'm just not convinced it's going to work.
Don't get me wrong, I'll try a new phone even though I don't expect it to work, but I'd still like Calendar access in the meantime.
Any ideas I haven't tried?
