    I got rid of my Instinct because I was robbed on a Saturday Night.And instead of pay another 100 bucks for another instinct I decided to just upgrade.

    So I decided on the palm-pre(which i brought last night off of the sprint site) which should get here tomorrow.

    But I have freaking noticed some things that I am not thrilled about whatsoever

    No gif images(as in no animation in text's),no 3 way calling or call waiting(You have to hang up both callers)..no sprint picture mail mms this seem like the same as what i hated the most about the instinct(besides the **** always breaking)....So I am asking can palm upgrade these features or is this a hardware thing ?

    If they are plan on upgrading those things I just listed than I will stay with the phone if not I am so done with Sprint.... I have a lil over 25 days to keep this phone..And also will we get software to do video for the phone or not
    THANKS IN ADVANCE

    The palm pre in a way is like the iPhone. Palm creates software updates that you download from your phone just like the iPhone. I hated my palm pre in the beginning but now I love it. You have to be patient. Anyways, you know you have thirty days to return it if you dont like it.

    What you mentioned CAN be fixed by updates. No idea when or if they will come but they can be fixed. Definitely tweak your phone and check out homebrew if you haven't already. I also had an instink prior to this. Just a horrrrrrible phone. The Pre is many magnitudes better.

    The animated gifs don't work, it comes out as a still image but I know for sure that 3 way calling/call waiting and sprint picture mail/mms DOES work on this phone. I'm sure in time Palm will add an update to the photos app to allow it to do video recording, it could be sooner or later, no one knows. But I get the feeling that the homebrew devs will out an "app for that" before Palm does cause I have seen some videos on youtube of it being tested. I would hold on to the Pre if I were you because advancements to it are being done very quickly and steadily.

    You can do picture mail mms on the Pre. I do it all the time.

    IMHO, the way you interact with the Pre is what makes it an awesome phone. So, yes, there are a few things it can't do (yet), but it does a LOT and it does it in a way that is so easy and effortless. I love my Pre primarily for this reason.

    And it doesn't hurt that Sprint service is the best value going: $69 unlimited data plan including SMS and MMS, free and awesome turn-by-turn voice nav, and free unlimited calling to any cell # on any network.

    I upgraded from an Instinct...trust me you'll like the Pre way more. Only thing I miss from the Instinct is visual voicemail, forwarding text & MMS, and video carmera. Like everyone has already said, most of those will be fixed with an update. Not sure about the visual voicemail though.

    Just for clarification, Sprint Picture Mail does not work. That's by design. Sprint Pictue Mail was actually a service that stored the pictures on Sprint's servers, then forwarded them on (I think Sprint has discontinued this..., but not sure).

    The Pre sends the pictures directly via SMS.

    To use picture MMS tap the paper clip icon once you're in a messaging conversation.
    To use 3 way calling tap the "add call" button on the right side of the dialer.

    vanity wants Sprint Picture Mail instead of true MMS.

    vanity also wants an efficient way of handling 3-way calling. As of right now once you're on 3-way mode, you can't end a single caller, only both. (Some have suggested that this might actually be a limitation of CDMA)

    I haven't figured out how to 3-way call on even my dumb phones. Whenever I try to add a caller, it hangs up on the first caller.
