    I had to turn mine in due to a bad connection on the USB port (had to hold at an angle to charge or transfer files) and the battery issue where the phone would reboot if you closed the keyboard to hard.

    I'm on my first Pre. No dead pixels, yellow blotches, exc. The only problem I had with my Pre was that the slider was very loose. So I fixed this and put up a tutorial on the forums how I fixed it. Now it's not wobbly and loose and won't budge a mm!

    Fight and return it. I returned 4 for dead pixels before I got a good one. Sprint employees made it hard to do, but fight for a good phone. You paid full price for one, you deserve a fully functional one.

    you don't have to fight too hard. It's well within your right to return it because you think the one you got is evil and is trying to murder you...ok maybe just say i want to return it because I don't want it. Then go to another store and get another one.

    The dead pixels were there out of box? Of did they die over time period?

    You definitely wont give up on the Pre. Good luck.
    I really didnt think about a choice for more than five

    I'm on my first exchange

    I haven't seen this issue reported yet, but on mine around the screen(the bezel?) in low light situations there are lots of light coming through. Which is incredibly distracting...it's around the entire screen, not part of the LCD.

    Outside of that the phone has been fine. Crossing my fingers there are no issues on the next one I get. I can try and supply pictures if people need to see what I'm talking about.

    Of those that were 'bad' or exchanged, do guys/gals remember if they came in the black or yellow box?

    I think there was theory that black packaging represented a bad mfgs lot.

    Mine came in a yellow box. 1.0.2 was already installed. No issues (so, far?).

    Never but I just got mine a few days ago...manufacture date was 6/13/09 with yellow box...solid as a riverstone
    Kyocera 6035 -> Kyocera 7135 -> Palm Treo 600 -> Palm Treo 650 -> Palm Treo 700p -> Palm Treo 755p -> Palm Treo 800w -> Palm Centro ->Palm Pre!

    This is my 4th Time. Fifth Pre!! Really?! 4 2.82%
    Third time's the charm. This is my fourth Pre. 3 2.11%
    Twice. This is my third Pre. 16 11.27%
    Once. This is my second Pre. 30 21.13%
    None - First Pre and it's been perfect 89 62.68%

    That would be:
    62.68% No Problem, No Return
    37.32% Had a Problem, Had a Return, Not Good for Palm!

    If we adjust for the actual number of returns:
    Fifth Pre = 4 returns, so 4 returns * 4 people = 16
    Fourth Pre = 3 returns, so 3 returns * 3 people = 9
    Third Pre = 2 returns, so 2 returns * 16 people = 32
    Second Pre = 1 return, so 1 return * 30 people = 30
    First Pre = 89

    16 + 9 + 32 + 30 = 87 BAD, had to return
    89 GOOD, no return

    So, in our completely unscientific, super small sample size, survey, we have:
    49% RETURNED
    51% NOT RETURNED

    Pretty darn bad!!!

    the bottom left corner is a little blotched in certain programs. but the black on the bottom isnt messed up so maybe its just those programs (pandora the most). deff not worthh the hassle or return since i already put an invisible shield on it.
