New PalmPre2 owner here. Figured i should get a piece of this company before it fades into history. I have been lurking on this site for a couple of weeks, so i'm not completely a newbie.
FYI, my previous phone was a iPhone3GS. (I am a developer, albeit not a mobile developer). And this is my first Palm/WebOS product.
Alright, so i've been trying to make my Pre2 my primary phone for a week now, and although i really like the interface and UI, i cannot stand the instability and random restarts.
My Pre2: GSM unlocked from the U.K., in use in Australia.
I have not installed PreWare, or hacked/modded this phone in any way.
The pre2 keeps restarting daily. I have read about the loose battery issue, but it restarts when it's sitting on the desk, without being moved.
I have removed all apps i have installed from the App Catalog, backed up the phone, and done a secure erase several times. But none of this has helped. Just today, i made an call, and when i wanted to hang up, i looked at the phone and it had the HP boot logo...WHILE i was on the call. ***?? I usually leave the phone app, the messages app and the email app open and running.
Any suggestions will be helpful. I hope this doesn't turn out to be a waste of money, as i bought the phone(and accessories) outright. So far this has been the most unstable phone i have ever owned.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
