    Hey guys, quick question. I had the pre for sprint when it first came out, I returned it after two days, love the phone, i have been a vzw customer since having a cell phone, i am also a tech for vzw. now, when i had it for sprint, i had a LCD white light leak i can only see it on boot up when palm is flashing. I had this issue with my sprint one, and now with my verizon one. Are they all like this? Im just curious to know.

    LOL My worst fear is coming true. F'in Palm, what a bunch of jokers. 6 Months and you still can't fix the issue on a new production of Pres!?!

    This is extremely sad, I am losing faith in Palm putting out this kind of junk. BTW To answer your question my phone has TERRIBLE light leakage, and if you use the phone for over 10 min with the screen on it gets terrible with any background. I can't even get mine replaced because "it still works." (Sprint Pre btw)

    You want my suggestion? Return the phone, if you really do like the Pre try to find one that doesn't have it. If you can't move on to another device because it is unacceptable at this point.

    Hmmm, all 3 of our launch day pre's screens work fine. Looks like another troll train ready to leave the station.

    i set up our store demo one and i specifically looked for it and i dont think i saw one on it but im going to double check tomorrow at work, if it doesnt have it, then im deffinitly calling up. i might even check others to make sure, its only noticeable on the boot up but its still annoying.

    Go to hell, try using my Pre for a day and we'll see exactly how you feel. Try to enjoy a screen that has light leaking all along the bottom for about a half inch of the screen above the gesture area and get back to me. Then have Sprint tell you it isn't a big deal because the phone still works, and Palm ask for $30 to get you a refurb UNDER warranty... ya, I'm a troll alright. I'm just living with it hoping Palm releases a new device in June that isn't plagued with quality issues... but hearing the VZ phones have the issue it isn't exactly promising.

    Unacceptable.

    I dont understand how I can be a troll when I own a Pre and post on the forum regularly? Excuse me for not signing over my first born to a company I have no stake in and calling them out on a poorly built phone... I don't jump on bandwagons, I just buy products I feel do what I need them to and I show no loyalty to a company because at the end of the day they won't show any to me. I respect a good product, period.

    I'm on my 3rd pre. For a variety of build issues- both of which resulted in an inoperable phone. I left Palm long ago because their hardware never lasted a year. I was impressed with the 755P build wise, but the thing would crash even w/ factory fresh apps.

    I love Web OS- but think if Palm is serious- they need to farm the OS to hardware /handset companies or they'll never become profitable. Apple was risky being the sole hardware maker- but they've successfully (profitably) have done it for years with their computers and iPods before they decided to do a phone- Palm can't make that claim.

    Get Moto/HTC/Samsung- license ANYONE Web OS to get the platform out there- forget the hardware part of the business- there's never any money in it (for Palm) anyway.

    You obviously must not be a victim of light leakage, and for that I envy you, but you can't take a screen shot of it since it isn't a software issue. When I get some time tomorrow I'll try to snap a pic of mine... it will make you shed tears of sympathy for me.

    I meant more as a proof that he has a pre and is not a troll. Antony, take a hint. Either post a picture or shoo!
