    Why would you not research it? Just makes sence. You should not complain about something you thought had the features you wanted, when you had the opportunity to try it and see if it had what you wanted IMO. Would you buy a TV blindly? I understand the Pre is not for you, that's fair, but to come in here and just say basically its a terrible phone, is not fair to Palm or Pre owners who are working hard to improve it. They have been up front with the features from the beginning and been trying to improve it ever since. How many phones do you know of that have had 4 updates in 2-3 months. Like I said, if you could give it more time, I'm sure it will have all or most of the features you and many are looking for. You must of liked something about it otherwise you wouldn't have bothered with it to begin with. (I'm not trying to be rude, just don't quite get it)

    It sounds like the only real rule around here is "Don't criticize the Pre. Or, at least start and end each paragraph with 'I love the Pre' - or we will beat you up."
    No, the rule of thumb is you should do this; post the following in this thread:

    ...and then start a new thread saying the exact thing a minute later.

    And then call everyone who responds to your trolling BS a fanboy. Because, you know, he's only posting it because he's trying to help Palm improve the device.

    Again with the research!

    You obviously haven't read the whole thread.

    I did not come in here to "basically say its a terrible phone". I actually said I love the phone. It's just missing things that a phone in 2009 SHOULD HAVE RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX.

    Research? "Would you buy a TV blindly?" NO. But would you research the TV to see if you can MUTE it or adjust the brightness??? NO YOU WOULDN'T

    It's 2009.

    fair enough but to me the awesome OS on the pre beats the very dated os on the blackberry.

    i've never had a $40 motorola but but i've had a $100 Samsung and it couldn't hold a candle to my pre. i can't begrudge a person for not being satisfied. But to me, all those things that you listed are not things that come into the equation when i'm shopping for a phone. i'm looking at email, and music, and web access, and does it have a flash, the camera. Like i don't care much about volume settings or wether my notification plays one sound or another. I'm just glad it beeps at all. That's what my last phone did. for me that stuff doesn't matter.

    This is me just *****ing about the little things, I know they annoy you too.
    They don't annoy most normal people enough to ignore the existing threads to start a brand new one just to say "look at me, how upset I am"...

    I agree with you the phone is great but needs to be improved, palm reads these threads and I will complain eveyday until palm realizes that they need to step up......I personally choose to seek to impreove my phone rather than sit on it so make your voice heard brother!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I'd say that if you're so vociferously agreeing with someone that says for $200 you'd "expect" it to come with xxyyzz, when a little bit of research would have you told him that it didn't, I'd have to guess you (and he) are looking in the wrong place for the "pretards"...

    Thank you I agree. Those are the things I look for too, but it would have been nice for them to add the things I mentioned.

    The reason I kept comparing it to a Motorola or Samsung or whatever is it because a PDA like Pre should include the little things other cell phone have right out of the box.

    I did not do the research for such small things as they're really not that important. It would just be NICE to have them. It doesn't even matter whether or not I did the research. I have 30 days to return the phone.

    Just wanted to voice my opinion.

    When was the last time you researched whether or not the phone has ONE sms tone or that you can't silence the keypad dialer without silencing the notifications. Or that you have to go thru 3rd parties to get these options?

    Have you ever purchased a phone and it ended up missing the things I am complaining about ... ?
    When was the last time? Ummm, let's see... just prior to June 6. The last phone I bought... Yeah, that was it.

    and again, the pre is a great phone, just missing little things lol. You guys are getting way too worked up over this.
    New slang word "wee wee'd up" President Obama used that word it means exactly that. I should say you're getting wee wee'd up on such notifications!
    Tell us exactly what you would exact from our response?

    I have done the research and I went with it anyways, knowing that I have the 30 day return policy. I am not losing anything here, just my time complaining about it.
    If you're looking to get emotional about a phone? Neither would this forum or Dr. Phil can fix it for you. Consider getting a wmo phone or a blackberry! As for your complaints... call or write a letter to palm at this number

    I'm thinking you and Keenan6 should hook up. Then you wouldn't have to spend so much wasted time on a forum for a device you detest...
