    Okay - an update.

    Ventured out earlier and when I looked at the Palm it was receiving a 3G signal (symbol was showing) and the "R" (roaming) symbol was also showing. Additionally, the carrier name changed from 'Telstra' to 3Telstra'. What the? I tried browsing but it was painfully slow. Not sure what is going on. Now that I am back at home it has dropped back to 'E' and 'Telstra'. My area has strong coverage for the NextG service as my iPhone never missed a beat.

    Also, when I set the 'Network Type' to 3G only instead of automatic, naturally the phone moves to 'No Service-SOS Only'!!!

    Would anyone have any clues?? Is it a 2100 V 850 thing happening?? Rod??

    Thanks

    Taking a bit of getting used after coming off the iPhone. For me the biggest challenge is getting used to using the physical keyboard. Not so much pressing the keys but the feel of it in my hand when the keyboard is open.

    Build quality is ok. The back case is a bit squeeky which is a bit annoying but that can be sorted. Cosmetically I love the look of the phone. Nice rounded curves and a great feel

    Software wise - still experimenting but so far so good. Been spending most of my time trying to work out the 3G issue and editing Db's and such.

    Compared to the iPhone it's a bit laggy - as in pages don't load as quick but can live with that. Multitasking is great and I really like the physical action of swiping pages off the screen

    Camera in my view kicks iPhone's a**!! Clear and colour much better.

    Will post more as I get to play with it more

    Thanks mate...am really interested in your comments on it versus the iPhone too...when I realised Palm were taking an age to bring it out here I was wondering whether I should just join the masses with iPhone mania...

    anyway hope you can get that 3G working ok...looks like the last big sticking point..all the best with it...

    hi, dakis,please add the T-mobile UK to the list, I can use T-mobile uk sim to connect 3G on GERMANY palm pre. I can active the palm pre.Voice ,data , sms work perfectly.

    I can confirm what Desktopman says here:

    http://forums.precentral.net/gsm-pre...ml#post2001098

    about Telenor. I did modify the CarrierNetworkSettings.db3 and included "telenor" where it lacked. I now have a fully working Palm Pre, with voice, 3g data, sms, and sms with attachments, eg MMS (or is it just TXT with attachement), with a Norwegian telenor sim.

    Also, after I did this, my Pre is actually much faster, much more responsive. My hypoteses is that the Pe with a simcard from a carrier which is not supported (fully) in the database, in some way is trying all the time to get data connection, and this slows it down.

    Someone posted a list over at infocenter. However, I doubt it's for real: List of carriers contained within CarrierNetworkSettings.db3 - Palm Pre Swisscom's on there and that provider definitely isn't supported at the moment (tested it myself).

    Important info: while the list was / is being compiled to the best of my knowledge, I can't personally verify all the entries. So they're without any guarantee for completeness or correctness. Also: the list is only valid for O2 (Germany) Pres. Reportedly, devices sold in Ireland and the UK behave differently.

    Hi dakis - Yep - Can confirm that in Australia using the Telstra Network:

    Voice, MMS, and data all good. Activation work out of the box.

    In relation to data - Previously on the iPhone it would pick 3G however it seems that the Pre cannot and it connects on Edge. Going to a suburb about 7 kms from here and it 'Roams' on 3G!!

    dakis, got an update for Sweden and the provider/operator Telia....

    Provider: Telia Sweden (thanks Andreas!)
    Status: Supported (activation 2G only, 2G data or 3G with roaming, voice, SMS) MMS not supported


    Turns out the database lacks settings for 3G so activation only works in 2G coverage. Same with data , it works fine in 2G but in the 3G only with data roaming switched on.
    Bit strange that Swedens largerst operator is missing the the 3G setting totally, there is not even a setting for it in the database and the MMS-settings is incorrect so the only thing that is proper is GPRS-settings.

    I hope Palm add the feature to change this in preferences with their next patch or I will have to change provider.

    Hi,

    I would like to purchase an unlocked irish pre for use with T-mobile here in the netherlands but i'm in doubt about what procedure to follow.

    1. Buy irish pre and have it activated by using the pay as u go sim card(by family member).
    2. Buy irish pre and have it shipped to me immediately.

    I read on : 'A few questions about the German Palm Pre ' thread that some guys are doing stuff in the DB to get the pre working on T-mobile NL.

    What do you guys recommend, immediate shipping or activation first?
    And wouldn't activiation in ireland mean that my pre will only function there?

    Thanks


    Edit: My apologies, i meant unlocked irish pre by means of the rebel sim

    I just put in the sim card and it detcted 3HK and also set the phone to 3G mode by itself. I didn't put any settings.

    I can surf the net, download from app catalog and watch youtube videos no problem.

    In Sydney Australia.

    Just took delivery of a German unlocked pre, ordered from expansys. Using my optus SIM activated no problem, 3g signal is showing up and browsed the net no problem (just opened the palm web site). Will need more time to get fully setup to check calling, mms etc and will do so after work but it looks promising so far.

    Will report back when I have completed the other tests.

    If you are using the Rebel SIM I suggest you activate it before shipping. Once activated you should be able to use it fine in NL... that's assuming of course the settings in the CarrierNetworkSettings.db3 are up to date for t-mobile NL

    Do you think that QWERZ is going to be a problem to you at all?
