    Any volunteers that I can send my Verizon Palm Pre 2 to and update my phone to version 2.2.4? I'm not the most computer savvy person but I just want "sms" with my touchpad. This kernel this and doctor that... is way too much for me to understand and probably screw it up. Thanks

    It's pretty hard to screw up using a webOS doctor. The only issue would be that you lose all of your current settings. I suggest that you use the homebrew save/restore app to save things before you doctor. BTW, what part of the globe are you in? Maybe there is a doctor-savvy person local that could help rather than dealing with the shipping gorillas.

    To get the Verizon Pre 2 to webOS 2.2.4 would require a Meta-Doctor, and I am assuming that is what the OP is afriad of messing up.

    and @OP instead of shipping the device, you could find someone to help you by using Teamviewer (TeamViewer - Free Remote Control, Remote Access & Online Meetings), you will be giving control of your computer to someone, who can then setup the doctor for you, and if you wanted go through the process. Sadly, I don't know enough about webOS to help you either

    There are two scripts in meta doctor, test and super, test is as GSM version with umts firmware removed and cdma added, super is as close to a Verizon DR I could make it,

    And is it true that if I buy an HP Pre 3 for Verizon it only works with 2G/Edge network and not 3G? Just checking my options.

    Having a Pre3 (but not activated), it claims to have full 3G (PrePlus and Pre2 also do) so I would assume it does to, no 4 lte, but it also has a SIM which can also be used on AT&T, now that is reported to be 2G/edge for GSM.

    Would a Verizon FrankenPre Doctor for 2.2.4 work? I've done that already for a Franken Pre 2. I'm up in Hillsborough NJ, so you're a bit of a ride.
