    I do not like Skittles. After trying Skittles, i never found the need to get on a soapbox somewhere and blast the product. I was intelligent enough to realize that just like every other product, some people will love it, some people will hate it, some people will be indifferent. It's all a matter of personal taste.

    So i did what a normal rational person would do, and never bought Skittles again.

    Same goes for the Pre. I personally love the Pre, but am not blind to its shortcomings. However, it works for me. If the Pre does not work for you, and it clearly does not, simply return it and procure a phone that fits your lifestyle. It's really that simple.

    Today in the span of one hour, I had four dropped calls and one call that the sound quality was so bad that I had to use a land line. All five of these calls were important, and all were made or received in an area that should have had excellent service. Since I have owned this phone it has dropped more calls than any other phone that I have owned.

    My list of complaints include:
    • Poor sound quality. The speaker on this phone sounds as though it was made to be placed in a kids toy.
    • Poor build quality. This is my second phone, the first one was damaged by my own negligence, but neither phone's build quality would be what I expect in a phone at the Pre's price.
    • Poor battery life. A coworker of mine has an iPhone that he uses about as much as I do mine. His battery lasts 2-3 days. My Pre will not even make it through an 8 hour workday.
    • Delays and lag. My phone, as well as my first phone, both have irritating little delays that sometimes result in losing a call or making it very difficult to navigate call trees in automated calls.
    • Aps. Come on, 112 aps!!! It would be nice to have even 1% of the aps iPhone has.
    • No ability to view PDF docs. Maybe there is a way to do this, but when I saw the "PDF Viewer" program on the phone I assumed it would simply work. I don't have the time or desire to research how to do something that should already work.


    This is a short list of my complaints of this phone, I could go on and on, but the real deal breaker for me is the sound quality and dropped calls. I simply cannot hear people, and they can't hear me. I can't wait to get my iPhone and be rid of this cheap toy.
    you went through the registering process to make one post and this was it...you should have taken the time to research before you bought the phone as you did when you got mad at the phone. Dropped calls are mostly service issues..I have never had a droppped call yet. Missed a call yes because of the phone lag, but it seems as if 1.2 has sped this up..

    I love that the profanity filters don't block biatch, but they do block my last name because the first 4 letters spell a word that was used as a racial slur in the deep south 40 years ago, even though most people under the age of 35 would just assume you were talking about a furry animal with a big ringed tail, and a little robber mask pattern in the fur on it's face, and a penchant for raiding trash cans.

    Honestly, if your having such a problem just go to AT&T and buy an Iphone, and thus pay so much more.
    Do you do anything on your phone for it to lasts 1-2 days? I'm pretty sure nobody else has their battery last that long. I don't agree completely with this guy, but there is no way.

    The pre is both the most problematic and the best phone I have owned. I am on my Third Pre and about to have the 4th one.

    I really do not want to give up the pre up because it does a lot. The battery life is as good as my old Samsung blade [sph900a]. Both of them are pathetic.

    I do think you are whining like a little girl when it comes to the number of applications. WTH. The pre has been out for months, not years.

    Bottom line, congrats on your first post!

    It's really quite simple, he doesn't own a Pre. A single post, registering on a forum to slag a phone, and not even having facts on his side, he doesn't know what he's talking about, because he doesn't own it.

    And I don't understand why people can't stand dissenting opinion?

    FWIW when I read online reviews to assess a product I immediately skip to the "cons" or negative reviews because it provides a full perspective.

    "this is the best widget ever!" doesn't really help anything.

    If your friend told you his iPhone battery lasts 2-3 days without charging, he lied. I came from an iPhone and I would have to charge it every night.

    Not to mention one of the biggest complaints of the iPhone is sound quality, while one of the universal praises of the Pre has been sound quality.

    I'm all for reading and discussing dissenting opinions, but when your first and only post is this loud, and this negative, and gives no opportunity for people to help you, it's not dissenting opinion, it's *****ing.

    so one cannot post "loudly" nor criticize without prefacing with praise?

    intolerance is intolerance

    Do you think joining a Pre forum for the sole purpose of saying "i can't wait to get my iPhone" is anything less than trolling?

    I am neither pro-Pre or pro-iPhone, but my iPod touch lasts no more than 7 hours with moderate usage. My Pre can go a whole day with constant e-mailing and texting.

    With that being said, I'd still want an iPhone over the Pre if it wasn't on AT&T's craptastic network.

    Not what I'm saying at all. What I'm saying is that going through all the trouble of finding and registering for a web forum that is dedicated to a specific device, and making that kind of post as your first/last/only post is not "dissenting opinion."

    It's being a troll.

    As for "intolerance is intolerance," that's actually the most pointless statement I've read on this forum.

    Personally, I am absolutely intolerant of rapists. I do not tolerate them on any level, and would in fact do very illegal things to one, should one practice his trade on someone I cared about.

    By your logic, that is the same as being intolerant of a particular race or lifestyle, after all, intolerance is intolerance.


    Now, back to my earlier point about mischievous rodents, anybody here a big fan of possums? They're so cute when they're at least 10 feet away and not snarling.
