    Just got the Palm Pre Plus from VZW on launch day (switched from the awful droid eris) and I'm new to this forum, so I'm just making this thread to say hi and see if there is any tips or tricks you guys can offer. It would be greatly appreciated.

    My biggest suggestion is to READ, READ, READ, and READ some more...then download Preware Welcome to the forum, I hope you love your Pre + as much as I love my Pre.

    Seriously though, take a look at the app section above it should point you to how to install WebOSQuickinstall on your Computer and Preware on your phone. I can't speak for the Eris but I had an HTC Hero and found Android to be just... Clunky and less elegant than WebOS so perhaps you will too.

    I agree with the first post! The best thing you can do is install preware on your phone. It allows you to customize the phone the way you want it. That is what is so great about WebOS, that you can pretty much customize the phone with patches to make it exactly how you want it

    Wouldn't it be "great"-er if you were able to make ANY customization WITHOUT patching?
    Just wondering.
    But OP, welcome to the forum. You WILL find all the answers you need to anything, right here.

    It would without a doubt, I think Palm copied Apple a little too much in this regard. Thankfully they didn't adopt the "jailbreaking/rooting/hacking should be illegal" approach though.

    You are describing a usability nightmare. If all of the various things that patches enable were built in to the OS it would just be a sea of toggles and drop down menus any time you looked at any of the settings. Pages upon pages of settings. No. No, no, no.

    Letting people patch their handset to enable the trivial little gimmicks that they consider to be essential is the right approach. Patching is as simple as can be. Palm's stance here is the direct opposite of Apple's. They explicitly thanked the homebrew community in their presentation at CES.

    What would be even "great"-er would be if Palm called me up, asked me exactly how I wanted the device customized to my taste, and had Angelina Jole deliver it personally.

    Until then, I'll work with what reality gives me...

    Seen BB customization options? What you descirbe is pretty close. Some like it, I wouldn't.

    Lol, Herb.
    You do realize this isn't the first time you mentioned Mrs./Miss/Ms. Jolie bringing 'something' to you, right?
    Does your wife know about this??

    Did you know her lips are surgically enhanced with collagen? A plastic surgeon I spoke with could actually pick out her injection sites.

    Nothing wrong with a plastic fantastic lover (yeah!) Btw, Jefferson Airplane ftw!
