    I'm going to try my companies website. None of the smart phones will render it properly. Android is very close, but not sufficiently so. I'm hoping the Pre will do better. All of the desktop browsers render it fine. If it works I bet Palm will sell about 6000 of them to my fellow co-workers.

    I was gonna pick run it over with a 1 ton dually to see if it would still work like my treo 700p did. That's how you know a phone is well constructed.. sure the screen cracked but it still made phone calls.

    My husband has given up on this . This will be my 4th phone and 4th carrier in the past year. And, I waited in the lines for all of them. The worst being the Storm I was first in line and the first to return it. I'm hoping the Pre will be the final phone I buy.

    I would sit and stare at it. Waiting for it to make the first move. Good way to release all the tension from waiting.

    I will run two active websites or apps side-by-side on the screen. Just stare for a minute of the miracle that they are both clearly live and living happily together on the screen.

    If pandora isn't pre loaded (no pun intended), then I will be 1st visiting the app store and downloading it... I will install it, and enjoy multi-tasking as I learn SYNERGY

    /edit oh, and whoever thought that sprint was rolling out there WiMax on the Pre was silly... You guys were the worst to argue with.

    I'm gonna say it. I told you so. :P

    I'll probably open up the webbrowser and see if Logmein works. If it does and its reasonably ok, I'm gonna be in heaven.

    Don't pay for the ETF from apple for cancelling your service with them - Tell ATT that you are moving to an area where their service doesn't reach and complain that it's unfair that you be forced to pay a cancellation fee when you wont be able to use their phone in an area where their service doesn't exist - works every time (worked for me, and worked for all of my friends who I coached through it). PM me if you want more tips.

    I didn't even know it could make calls.

    Research Palm's migration tools and import anything I can over to the Pre, which may only be contacts.
    And see how well bluetooth works with my 1st edition Jawbone compared to the crappy 700P bluetooth (i.e. will it stay connected).
    Configure it to connect to my home WiFi.

    If you found my post useful then please sign up for a Dropbox Account, I could use the extra 250mb of storage.

    HOW TO: Zip/Unzip via Pre/Pixi using Terminal
    HOW TO: Modify DTMF audio (webOS 1.4.5 or earlier)
