    GSM Pre phones in Aus.

    johncc, Movistar ES, Hutchison 3
    I have three. One German unlocked GSM on Vodafone (my main phone), one German unlocked GSM without a SIM (dev phone on GSM), and one meta-doctored Sprint CDMA (dev phone on CDMA).

    The CDMA phone obviously does not work as a phone in Australia, but is very handy for seeing the complete app catalog over wifi.

    Hey, good thread - i got first mention yay!

    Although... could you change it to 'Virgin Mobile' rather than 'Bennish, Virgin'? Obvious reasons!! lol - i'm sure prerunr would agree. by the way, nice to see another aussie virgin mobile user here.

    I'm also interested in app catalogue counts. Can we do that in this thread? For instance:

    ---- Movistar ES unlocked
    bennish, Virgin Mobile (151 apps)
    calroth, ?? (xx apps)
    dbmgreen, on order (xx apps)
    johncc, Hutchison 3 (xx apps)

    I'd like to know what other aussies are seeing in their catalog, and what difference (if any) between german, spanish, etc.
    [twitter]_____[blog]______[im]__
    For now: Nexus One | iPad 2
    When avail. in Aus: Pre3 16GB | Touchpad 16GB

    No problem. (I did have an upper-case V )

    Can do re Catalog if anybody wants to advise. It will be a bit dymanic though as mine has gone from 151 to 159 recently.

    yeah fair enough, i see it'd be dynamic... i'm mainly thinking big numbers, like i heard some gsm users have 4/500 apps? ridiculous.

    Sounds like we're the same johncc - i went 151 to 159 too. Guess that indicates Spanish Pre consistency.

    Any German (qwertz) or uk pre users in aus wanna let us know their app count?

    I believe Tim Carrol from PIC has a German Pre and sees over 150 apps too so it's not a Spanish/German thing. Looks likely there are over 20 Aussie Pre owners so perhaps the number theory (geo-filtering for no apps unless more than 20 users in the region) still holds.

    Good thread!

    You got the O2 DE unlocked correct, but "slimmo, Hutchison 3" should be "Slimmo, Telstra (169 apps)

    Cheers

    slimmo, 169! no fair, what gives!

    btw i'm 159 johncc, for future reference, probably safe to assume my number is identical to yours.

    So does this mean users in spain are getting 159? or is it something to do with our aussieness? If so... how does the pre know? can we trick it? (region settings, clock, something? i'm looking in your direction rwhitby, seeing as how there's notthing you don't know about this stuff)

    167 here too, johncc - like i said, u may as well update mine at the same time as yours.

    i'd be interested in knowing if calroth is at our number as well, and dbmgreen should be able to tell us once his arrives.

    any updates on O2 DE or UK? Slimmo?

    Rod, I also operate a Sprint CDMA Pre in Australia purely on WiFi. I found I can do many things, including access to the USA App Catalog (as you do).

    A few weeks ago, after installing webOS 1.3.5.1 (up from 1.3.1) I lost acess to over half the US App Catalog (I now see only 528 apps). One of these was my beloved Classic which I have not been able to locate in the Catlog or restore from my Palm Profile since.

    While MotionApps have advised me that this is a known problem for some users, and that Palm are working on it (??) I am thinking that I ought to try your Meta-doctor and completely set up the phone afresh.

    My question is: to use Meta-doctor it seems that I need a Linux PC and some Linux knowledge. As I can hardly spell Linux, is there a way that I can perform Meta-doctoring on a Windows XP PC?

    I would be over the moon if I can solve my App Catalog issue.

    Regards

    Not sure how quick this is going to be, I think Goma is having trouble with the unlock process :-(
