I'm not keen on modding it at this point as i will be trying to get a replacement if possible.
I cant remember if i tested it with wifi turned off. Will give it a shot. As for the frequency settings, that might be a bit trickier for me as i am using a mifi router.
I just 'secure erased' the Pre2 and restored the info from my Palm Profile (could this be an issue although the backup done prior was successful ?). There are no additional apps installed, i have not connected the device to my comp, and there are no additional files(docs/music/movies) on the device. I have the phone, messages and email apps running, with their cards open.
Incidentally, it automatically restarted on me when i went to restart the device. But i'll try it out and see how it goes.
Either way, i do not think a shipping device should be this fragile and unpredictable that the end user has to spend hours diagnosing it. And unfortunately i am very disappointed in the quality of the product. I just hope i get a replacement as i have gotten a few accessories(case, screen protector, chargers, touchstones) for the device.
Cheers for your help guys. Will let you know how it goes.
