    Upon getting your Palm Pre phone home, do you plan on charging it completely before playing around on it or are you going to play around on it first?

    It's a damned good question.

    If I were smart, I'd pick up a Centro battery or something and use it in the Pre while the new Pre battery charges in my charger.*




    * - which I just realized probably (maybe?) WILL work on the Pre's battery
    * Stuck patches? Partial erase worked for me.
    * Stuck virtual keyboard? Partial erase AND folder deletion worked for me.

    it's almost 3am on the west coast. i'm starting to believe that the Eguy doesn't ever sleep. maybe he's a bot scripted by Palm's people? part of the viral marketing strategy???

    I have had both a Centro and a treo 800w, so I have 4 batteries that will be fully charged and ready.. No waiting here!!!!

    Don't they have to do the "ReadyNow" thing on the phone before giving it to you? I was thinking it would have to be pre-charged. Either that or they just have spare batteries lying around to do that...

    I'll be playing with it while it's on the Touchstone for the first time.

    And as mentioned in another thread, lithium-ion batteries are usually shipped with 30-40% charge because that's safest.

    ReadyNow is optional, although they are required to promote it to you. Just decline.

    If I cant swindle a fully charged battery from the salesman, then I will be charging it while I play. Lucky wife...I will be the one driving and she can play with hers!

    Hold the Pre in your left hand and gesture with your right index finger.

    assuming that the power source is the same as the Pro... and if my wife goes w/ me, so she can drive and i plug it into the Pro carcharger while she drives, i will probably not buy a charger @ sprint unless i find my 25% S|P coupon

    Why worry about fully recharging it at first? With a lithium-ion battery it doesn't matter. From Battery University:
