    Move to America and buy a Pre from Sprint or Verizon. Read in the forums somewhere that should fix your problem. :-P

    I completely understand how angry andred is, and why.

    @brennan7; why would you make such a snarky reply? andred is expressing genuine frustration at being lied to by Palm and Bell over the functionality of the Palm Pre in Canada. These types of phones are purchased with the understanding that the user will be able to use third party apps. When these phones appeared in Canada they were accompanied by advertising and statements, from both Palm and Bell, that a fully functional catalogue would be arriving sometime shortly (near Christmas). The full app catalogue did indeed roll out (only in the U.S.), since then there has been absolutely no official word regarding the full app catalogue appearing in Canada. This fact is what has so many Canadian Pre Owners p!ssed off.

    @andred; here's what I've done already, I've written to Palm, emailed Palm, and talked to their online 'chat based support' centre. I have still not received ANY communication from Palm....that is just very poor customer service.... You may want to follow my decision on this phone, which is: If the paid app catalogue has not shown up in Canada by the time Apple releases the next iPhone update (around June) then I will be purchasing an iPhone and returning the Pre to Palm.

    There are several new carriers arriving on the Canadian scene, with any luck the rate plans will start dropping in price by that time.

    Forget paid apps...why can't I get the free apps that I see people talking about here. Ex. Where's Slacker Radio on the Bell Pre?

    can we just create new palm profiles with us region, or can the free apps ipkg get uploaded to preware? (sounds illegal but will be a temp solution)

    Knowing that it's possible to download paid apps for free on the Iphone (through jailbreaking, and probably torrenting) I'm sure it's possible to do the same thing on the Pre. I would never do it, but I'm in the US so I can easily just pay for the apps, but if I wasn't you can bet your *** I'd have no qualms about doing it.
