    First off let me start by saying software wise.. I love everything about this phone. It's versatility and ease of use is absolutely amazing. I was very pleased up until about a week ago. I had read numerous threads on all these malfunctions/cracked screens/ discolorations etc.. My phone had none of these so I figured people were just having bad luck.

    Well this past week a bubble emerged under my screen. Sure enough a few days later several more appeared and they grew in size. I went into the Sprint store and put my name down for an exchange when the next shipment comes in. So today I'm trying to respond to an email on my phone when low and behold... my keyboard fails. I tried restarting and it still will not work.

    I could care less if Palm goes under at this point. You put out a crappy product, you pay the price.

    That is all... just venting

    Well, in all fairness to the OP, I can feel his pain. I LOVE this phone and I LOVE the OS. But I am on my third Pre and still holding out hope that it will last 12 months until I can upgrade to the next one! I am worried as to whether or not it will make it.

    FYI, 1st one - dead microphone. Second one - keyboard died, just like the OP's. Third one OK so far.

    All three had the wobbly slider - guess that's just the nature of the beast.

    Get a dumb phone and be happy. Also move to the dumb phone forums.

    Get an iPhone already, since there's no keyboard to worry about!

    Just so you know for future reference. Your experience constitues EXACTLY a sample size of one. A sample of one is not sufficiently "large and varied" for you to conclude anything at all about all Palm Pre phones. The only thing you know for a fact is that your one single phone is defective. Reasoning from sample sets too small and/or insufficiently varied is a form of fallacious reasoning called Hasty Generalization.

    Had you, for example, sampled 100 phones and discovered that 5 of them were defective, you would then have some evidence to back a claim that approximately 5% of phones are defective. Though even given such evidence you would still need to consider if your sample of 100 phones is from many different batches and not just one particular batch which happened to have a large number of defects. (this constitues the 'varied' part of the requirement in a "large and varied" sample).

    May your future uses of reasoning by Statistical Generalization be far more successful.

    Thank you and please return to your regularly scheduled irrational musings.

    My bad bros, wasn't trying to be a little b**** about it. It's just really frustrating when you finally find a phone you're happy with and it completely goes to crap. Then will all of the threads about people on their 4th and 5th Pre's you start to wonder if this phone will hold up regardless.

    I'm definitely sticking to the Pre and I hope my 2nd one works out well.
