    What in the world are you talking about? Not gambling != "kicking" a gambling habit. You don't "kick" a habit that you never had.
    I didn't "kick" my iPhone habit either, never had one...

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.
    You got all of that from this guy's complaint? Or is this another attempt at hijacking the thread into yaihtp thread?

    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.

    hahah.. no nothing like that.. and im not trying to hide anything.. just when she sends me a message.. it dont show up.. in my conversations.. like if i have a list of say 20 people i been texting all day.. i go to my conversations list.. i just type in kim to go to her name.. well, i decided today to delete my conversations cuz i had alot.. and i noticed.. her name wasnt listed.. along iwth a couple of others.. not just her, my friend tim, mike, preston.. all of them if i type their name.. would pull up the conversation.. but if i just scrolled through the text list.. i wouldnt be there.. very strange..

    for instance.. if i sent 20 different people a text message saying, testing. there would be 20 conversations listed on the messaging screen. however, if i sent 20 different people, one of which was kim a text message saying testing, there would only be 19 conversations listed. but, in the list of 19 conversations, i type in kim, it would show the message i sent saying, testing.

    Honestly you have a faulty Pre if anything. Do you have any patches or hacks installed?

    also, want to note, that i did finally get ahold of someone at palm, and they did say there was something wrong with their profile server.. so. maybe that has something to do with it.

    this-is-maddness!

    there should be a therapy app that saves users from trashing the Pre.

    ^this is a known issue: convos not appearing in messaging list. IIRC, this happens to contacts with links to other cloud databases (AIM for sure). This happened on my wife's Pre. The only way I know to resolve it is to do a partial erase and restore from Palm profile - caveat is that partial erase might delete 3rd party app databases like SplashID.

    BTW, the other issue about old deleted convos re-appearing when searching the messaging list is also known. Some say it has to do with its size. However, I just deleted a convo with my wife (largest convo history) - swiped and confirmed delete. After a few seconds, did a search in messaging list and the convo came up but some of the messages have indeed been deleted. Used the Pre regularly for about half an hour and then did another search - nothing came up. So it does appear that the Pre does delete it but takes awhile.

    Hope this helps.

    just curious.. does your palm try to backup your contacts as soon as you add them, or delete them? cuz when i delete a contact, or modify a contact, my phone gets really slow.. then wont show my contacts for like 2 minutes.. it goes offline.. then back online.. then contacts work.

    As I mentioned, after I deleted the convo (obviously she's no longer on the list) it took a good half hour for her name not to show up when I search (typing her name). I just now sent her a text to see if she shows up on the list and yes she did.
