    The reason you think I'm a liar is because even though you were obsessed with reading my previous threads, apparently you didn't read them all. Everything I said makes sense given the fact that I bought TWO pre's at the same time (one for me and one for my GF). We both has separate issues with out first Pre's and both had to be exchanged. Now I am having a separate issue with my current one and was considering exchanging for my 3rd Pre.

    So, that being said, would you like to continue this charade of making false accusations?

    BTW, what could you possibly have to gain by trying to prove that people are liars (of which I am not)? These people looking for constructive advice.

    You need to stay off the forums and go find a better way to spend your time.

    The only other moving part was the battery drawer that felt like paper mâché every time I was brave enough to open it. It's no wonder you can't remove a battery, they're slot-loading, and every product they build is a brick with one (or no) buttons.

    There's a price to be paid (in a number of ways) for "built like a rock".
    On a side note, mine has the removable battery, but I would rather it not have the removable battery. You can get 8 hours without the removable battery! That's remarkable! Who carries around spare batteries anyway? Hardly anyone. Or you can buy a charger that works on an airplane. They make them. I own one. I use it every time I travel.

    Really? Mine twists in the front, and it has nothing to do with the battery door, or the bottom half for that matter. That's disappointing though considering I just ordered the Touchstone kit 5 hours ago...uuf

    batteries can go bad over time. It's nice to be able to order a new battery and put it in yourself.

    Purchasing a product such as a phone, computer or television is an investment. If you went and purchased 100 shares in Google, wouldn't you care if Android does well in the future? Same idea here except "Android" is the rails on the Pre. Pretty simple concept. Difficult for you to grasp, apparently.

    I live in a major city. The cost to replace the battery is the same as it was when it was removable, and I'm sure you can convince the Apple tech guys to give your computer the once over (for free) when they replace the battery. That would be a bonus in my book. Personally, I have no problem walking down the block to the Apple Store. 8 hours is a wicked battery life. I would give up my 5 hour removable battery for that in a second. P.S. I looooove my Unibody MacBook Pro. I have Windows 7 on it for school (we're required to takes tests on a program that runs on Windows). It's the best laptop I've ever owned.

    Sorry, but a Pre is not like my Colt 1911A1 .45 ACP designed to tolerate a little sand/grit/grime and still be able to function.

    The oreo effect is bad manufacturing. I expect quality for my money. And with a 1911, I know it will fire... I am not so sure my Pre will work when absolutely necessary.

    Not all airplanes have charge ports (try finding one on ANY SWA plane), and even with my BB, with a battery that would normally last a couple of days, on more than one occassion I found myself sitting some place without enough juice to make a call and wishing I had bought an extra. And as I will no longer be carrying an iPod for music, and the Pre does turn by turn Nav (for use in the rental car), and I actually use it for Web browsing (NEVER did on the BB), and food finding, and stock watching, and news checking, et cetera, et cetera - there's a spare battery sitting in my shopping cart at Amazon, just waiting for some other purchase to justify the shipping.

    yeah I have a slight twist but the phone is great otherwise. I had to return mine because of a bad headphone jack.

    The first one didn't twist at all, or at least I wasn't paying that much attention at the time, until I read all about the twist and oreo's.

    I'd say find people with Pre's and let them show you theirs and also look at the ones on display at the Sprint stores and test them all out and compare it to what you have.

    Remember, if it's so same a twist, they might not agree to exchange it for you.

    And you might end up with something worse.

    Just compare it to a few others Pre's you can find. Then I think you will know for sure if you have a real problem or not.

    They all have some play in the front. The point is if you don't pay good attention, at least some of what you may perceive as a twisiting slider may be coming from the battery cover. That was definitely the case with mine.

    It might be a big deal to you, but I don't much care about the play in the battery cover.

    Nobody here believes that everyone on this forum is looking for constructive advice. Yeah, I read all your posts to determine your motive. At the time there weren't that many because you appeared the same day as that analyst's negative call on Palm due to the poll on this site. It's undoubtedly suspect and your time line and posts don't add up.

    I'm not the one involved with a charade.

    Stock Market Manipulation Schemes
    These are also called investment schemes online. Criminals use these to try to manipulate securities prices on the market, for their personal profit. According to enforcement officials of the Securities and Exchange Commission...

    ...Short-selling or “scalping” schemes

    This scheme takes a similar approach to the “pump-and-dump” scheme, by disseminating false or fraudulent information through chat rooms, forums, internet boards and via email (spamming), but this time with the purpose of causing dramatic price decreases in a specific company’s stock. Once the stock reaches a certain low level, criminals buy the stock or options on the stock, and then reverse the false information or just wait for it to wear off with time or to be disproved by the company or the media. Once the stock goes back to its normal level, the criminal sells the stock or option at a profit.

    Oh, I absolutely want one for the Pre. The battery life is putrid. We were talking about the removable vs. non-removable batter for the Unibody MacBook Pro. Laptops on average get 3 hours of battery life. The Unibody MacBook Pro with a removable battery averages 4.5 hours (I own it, and that's what I get), and the new Unibody MacBook Pro without a removable battery get 8 hours. For a laptop, that's amazing.

    Laughable.

    You're posts are as entertaining as the homeless people that mock drunk people outside of bars in Chicago.

    Actually considering the amount of trolls in here lately, it makes quite a bit of sense. I think there are more trolls here than actual Pre owners.

    Not sure why we are discussing this here but my Thinkpad x200 gets nearly 9 hours from its removable battery.

    Possibly, but it's like a netbook compared to my computer. It's a different computer altogether. Smaller. Less power. The Unibody MacBook Pro has a larger processor, faster memory, better graphics card, etc.

    ThinkPads are the only PC I'd ever purchase, but the x200 in particular is really not in the same league as the 15" Unibody MacBook Pro. It just serves a different purpose, theoretically.
