    One thing I experienced, though, that may be helpful to someone - I didn't delete my Palm Profile backup information, and then when I tried to sign into my Profile after the 2.1 upgrade, it wouldn't let me. I was just about to go back to 1.4.5 and delete Profile backups, but then I decided to reboot and give it one more shot. And it worked! I was able to sign in, and all of my information was restored. Phew!
    I didnt delete mine either and it took without issue.

    think imma do f104...its been getting better praise
    I have an issue with the Pre2 which is activated in UK for the first time. Didn't realize that HP locks your App Catalog to the country of Activation , first time. So my app catalog shows apps in Pounds. I have an open ticket with HP on this issue and its not looking nice so far.

    Did your PALM profile worked fine on the franken-Pre ? I am afraid HP will mess my profile with this UK activated Pre2.

    It's the Verizon one. And no, none of the Sprint apps show up after the 2.1 install. I believe you can find the .ipk files for them and get them installed (I'm going to try this for Amazon MP3, which I use), but sadly, Sprint Navigation won't work. I believe it never will, unless Sprint releases a WebOS 2.x device. It's a shame, but I feel that the tradeoff is worth it for such a rockin' device!

    oh I used to have 2.1 on my old pre-(still does by the way) and I managed to install the navigation system from verizon. So after 2.1 on a pre2 I can do it the same way and install the verizon navigation system just the same way? I really never used sprints applications anyway, just the navigation.

    I don't see any pre2s on craigslist for Chicago :/

    I just bought mine last week and should arrive on Monday. Looking forward to getting everything setup and switched over. Sounds like those that have done it have been happy and since HP/Sprint can't acknowledge or deny the Pre3 is coming to Sprint I want to replace my launch day Pre- that I've had the same one since that day. I was feeling depressed because I tried an EPIC for a week and couldn't enjoy it as much as the WebOS.

    One question I have for those that have made the switch, do you notice any improvement in data speed when browsing the web? I'm guessing because you are swapping radio you are removing the 3G ability?!?

    no, you keep 3g

    fwiw, my web browsing feels SIGNIFICANTLY faster because the phone is able to render the phone quicker

    Yah, browsing is way faster than on my Pre- due to page render performance. I also noticed that wi-fi signal strength is greatly improved. I mean, I haven't done any hard benchmarks, but the indicator gives me more "bars"... Does the Pre 2 have a different wi-fi chipset than the original Pre?
  15. #35  
    yea does it have a different wi-fi chipset headset? I'm waiting on the pre 3. Once I hear it's NOT coming to the SPRINT I will be buying a pre 2 no matter the cost. I just want as much info as possible on the advantages of the pre 2 vs the pre-

    I see one on Craigslist LA right now for $175:
    Palm Pre 2 Never Used - VZW

    Of course, you've gotta be local, unless you can talk the dude into mailing it...

    I don't see it anywhere on the phone. I use Google maps for navigation anyway so I'm fine with it.

    I've installed sprint nav onto my overclocked sprint pre minus when i meta-doctored it to 2.1, so I think you should be able to do the same with the FrankenPre as well...
    So she asked: "What is it with you? Is it ignorance, or is it apathy? And I answered: "I don't know and I don't care."

    can you do it the same way on a pre 2 and install Sprint NAV?
