    This thread seems like a bit of an overreaction. Get rid of an amazing phone because you can still access a messaging thread if you type the contact's name? Just doesn't sound like a big deal to me.

    Oh Geez! This issue again. You're going to have to clearly define what you mean by smartphone to support your conclusion. Good luck convincing anyone of your conclusion based upon your own stipulative definition.

    he's typing "kim" to see the conversation with "kim". otherwise the conversation will not show up. and if the Messaging App is open, you will hear the notification but it will not show up because the App is open. and if multiple contacts are disappearing in Messaging, you have no idea who just sent a text message. its a common and annoying glitch.

    I had this same issue happen. Seems to be at issue when a message thread gets too long and so it won't delete (my thread was probably 2000+ messages with MMS as well). I had to use the WebOS Doctor to completely reformat the phone. Contacts are saved thru your profile, though not always linked together correctly after a reformat.

    Dumb phone, dumb user. Same difference (in "some areas").

    cant you put ur phone in usb mode on linux (dunno bout windows, seems to show more folders when using linux) and go into the messaging folder and delete all the messages out and they will be gone from your phone as well? i was cleaning up folders one day and did this and it totally removed all messages i had going.

    Silly Fanboys just can't accept the fact that the Pre has flaws. It's ok, we understand you cringe every time one of the those annoying iPhone commercials come on and say "We have an App for that". The Copy/Paste commercial must have really made your blood boil. "Dang it! Palm was the only phone with copy/paste! What?! We can't do that?"

    This is a problem but it's not that big of a deal. I believe Palm does know about this issue and they have logged it into their software database. The cache/buffering doesn't always get erased once you try and erase the text thread. Somehow on some Pre's, the software isn't performing a rescan as soon as you delete the thread (to confirm deletion). I believe it eventually does it but it's not immediate (internal folders, etc).

    It doesn't happen to all Pre's. I remember seeing something similar in earlier versions of WebOS but I've not seen it lately. I also just tried it and the message thread gets completely deleted, even after receiving a text from the user thread I deleted.

    Hopefully, it will get addressed in a future release.

    Silly antiPres just can't accept that fact that having flaws doesn't make it a "dumb phone" - in any areas.
    I no more cringe over iPhone commercials than I do commercials about gambling in Casinos. I don't gamble, so what goes on there doesn't bother me. I don't own an iPhone, so what they've got apps for doesn't affect me. As a matter of fact, far from cringing, I like said commercials, because they generate revenue that helps produce whatever show I'm watching at the time.
    I've often wondered if the iPhone sites have as high a percentage of non-iPhone users as this website attracts non-Pre users. I don't know, since I don't go to iPhone sites. Maybe the antiPres are worried about people liking the device too much...

    There are times when i want to smash my pre against a wall for resetting, or for that dam bubble in my screen, then i realized i came from a mogul...and there are no other smartphone options out there right now that i could deal with, then i get over it.

    I'm glad to hear you've kicked your gambling problem and can now afford a TV to watch your shows. You keep at it, you can do it!

    Between your avatar and this post...well, I'm a little frightened for your Pre. Be careful, or someone might call Pre Protective Services. You could have your Pre taken away from you and raised by someone else. You don't want that now, do you?

    Is this due to a break up? 'Cause if so maybe a subtle hint to try and hook up again with Kim.

    On a serious note, I unfortunately never ran into this problem. Just telling ya to not stress over it too much and just never type the letters "K" "I" "M" into your chat area every again.

    Hahahahaaahaaa......

    Jacka$$. Someone has a legit complaint about the way the phone works (or doesn't), and all you can do is insult him. Pre fanbois are even worse than Apple fanbois. The simple truth is that the Pre should be a beta. It is woefully, abjectly, incomplete, lacking features that other smartphones have had for years and years, and can't do things that phones the telcos give away for free can do.

    And don't give me the stupid "It's version 1.0" or the "It took Apple years to do [feature of your choice] excuse. The Pre needs to compete with what's available today, not what was available 3 years ago. Although, to be honest, it doesn't even compete very well with those, either.

    The Pre does only three things better than my Treo: multi-tasking, WiFi, and GPS. Unfortunately, most of the apps it has to multi-task are weak, at best, non-existent in most cases. My Treo has a far better calendar (Datebk6), a better task app, (much) faster, more flexible launchers (Treo Launcher, Aardquick), a better phone app (TakePhone), a more capable texting app, email and calendar searching, an arguably better email app (Chatter), Documents To Go for Office doc editing, full backup and restore capabilities, a removable memory card, and many, many customization & configuration options (choose your own alert tones, assign ringtones by person, prevent alarms from sounding during a call, turn the radio on and off at set times, oh, the list goes on and on), an alert light in multiple colors so I can tell what's going on without turning the phone on.....

    I'm getting tired of listing them.

    Does the Pre have the potential to be a great device? It sure does. Is it a great device now? Not hardly, although I suppose it might seem that way to someone who's never had a smartphone before, and thought a Moto Razor was cool.
