    After seeing so many Negative posts and wanted to post my POSITIVE experience with my Pre Plus and 1.4.

    So far the phone is running much much! better now. Feels alot more polished, Here is a list of the positive:

    1) Faster screen transitions within ALL programs.
    2) Faster scrolling with email, contacts and call log.
    3) Web Browser loads pages faster and renders more accurately.(pinch&zoom faster w/less hangup)
    4) Screen feels more sensitive to inputs now.
    5) Getting better battery life (especially when phone is idle)
    6) Dial Pad is faster and doesnt hang up o0r freeze anymore.
    7) Email is much more responsive btw reply and forward and intial send.
    8) Photos program loads faster and photos load quicker now.
    9) Better call log layout really shines.
    10) Video camera is only 2nd to iphone.

    Here are some tips YOU MUST DO, to have the 1.4 UPDATE runs as smooth as can be.

    1) Remove ALL patches.(especialy + clock speed patches)
    2) Backup all pictures and do a full erase. Make sure device backup is on. After full erase login into your primary email Palm login. This will restore all your phones info including apps, email and notes. (you will lose photos & call log).
    3) Do not install any homebew programs.
    4) Do a battery pull right after 1.4 fully restores for the 1st time. This must be done! (note! do not pull battery until fully restored)

    (if anyone does not follow all the of the above with 1.4 , then they have no right to complain in this forum)

    feel free to add to either of my lists above....

    Well, AUPT worked for the most part for me (and the issues I had were not due to AUPT, for some reason I got errors while trying to unmount something whilst upgrading patches). Did not do a full erase or doctor, just did the OTA. I have homebrew galore. Didn't do any battery pulls. 1.4 works perfectly for me.

    Don't know what macro focus is, but I think what you want would require a harware change. ie autofocus lens. What we have is fixed focus with depth-of-field enhancement.

    Hi, THANK YOU FOR ALL OF THE POSITIVE NEWS!

    Please keep in mind that I do not yet own a pre, I cannot get a new phone until Oct. So I may not properly follow an issue, since I have not yet tried out the Pre and cannot wait to have one!

    You mentioed do not install any home brew programs. I assume that means, you cannot install any home brew until all else is done, as per your very acurate and percise instructions. (Thank you for that as well)!

    Take care, Jay

    Calendar

    • You can customize calendar notification sounds in Preferences & Accounts. The options includeMute, System Sound, Ringtone, and Vibrate. The Ringtone option includes new notification sounds to give you more customization choices.
    • With this release, future occurrences of repeating Calendar events consistently appear correctly.
    • If you create an event and enters a phone number as the event name, location, or description, you can tap the phone number on the event details screen to dial it.
    • A new Select All application menu item is available when the cursor is in an editable text field.
    • A new Sync Now application menu item gives you a second way to manually synchronize your calendar accounts (in addition to the Sync Now button in Preferences & Accounts).
    • This release improves Calendar synchronization performance in poor network coverage areas to optimize battery life. It also increases the default interval for synchronizing with online calendar accounts other than Exchange accounts.
    • Editing a Google calendar event on the phone no longer sets an email reminder in Google on the web.
    • This release contains improvements to the visual calendar display, including a clearer indicator of AM and PM and improved current time display.

    Oh yeah... and 1.4 works with the 600mhz patch

    Works fine with patches and homebrew for me ... I don't know why people feel the need to dis them so much. If you know what you are doing they are very safe and do not impact performance or battery life.
