    I honestly believe this is one factor people overlook when they talk about start up times for apps.

    Every device is going to have different problems for different people. Thing is you have to find what works for you... Not what works for the masses.

    I have been a long time WinMo user.... The thing that broke the camel's back for me and sent me running to the Pre was 6 touch pro replacements in 4 months. All keyboard failures. I had always wished WinMo seemed more seamless instead of a patchwork quilt... but was willing to leave with that until all the keyboard troubles.

    Now with the pre I have a working keyboard and a phone that feels seamless. So... Like I said... Every device is different to everybody.

    BTW..My pre... takes 2 seconds tops to load emails.

    I am jumping ship to the Hero for the same issues. I really do like the webos and will probably be back but for a company that puts a substantial amount of thought into even the packaging of their products- the cheap feel of the Pre is unacceptable. It is shoddy crap and noticed by all users after a few minutes. Even my wife and sister who both have the Pre asked me on day 1 if there was something wrong with theirs. Terrible.

    Hopefully the pixie is solid. It should be.

    No matter how long the phone is out for...its not going to completely rework the poor quality of the phones hardware themselves. after working as the technician in a few Sprint and Nextel service center for almost 8 years i've come to realize that no matter how great a phone seems, theirs only so much the company building them will do to fix them after release. sure they will add some "fix" here or their like the bandaid for the battery, the LG rumor did exactly the same thing for their LCD ribbon sliders, same with the Rants....the Oreo problem will still be around in the coming years, screens will still crack, phones will still reboot or power off and get no service here and their. if the phone is not built sufficient from the get-go then thats about all its gonna get besides software updates. I had to sell off my Pre for the horrid build quality problems and now own a Hero after my Mytouch and 2 G1 were still rocking along great. HTC build excellent phones, Palm used to also but after the Pre I think its alll downhill from here.

    but sadly, the pre simply falls short in too many ways to be a muture enterprise level product.

    You know, this is the problem with these proclamations by folks unhappy with a device, system, OS, whatever. While this may be true for you, it is not universally true. Failure to meet your expectations and needs does not disqualify it as an "enterprise level device", nor as an "enterprise level product".

    Shouldn't this be in the "I returned my Pre" thread?

    Right now I am using an old blackberry 8830 and the thing is so solid and nice in comparison.

    It is really too bad Palm accepted this quality. I dont see any improvements either- I have seen 2 new Pres with later build dates that are worse than the one I got at launch.

    All users? Really, you sure it's noticed by all users?

    I don't think that word means what you think it means.

    You right- just 100% of the 8 or so pre owners I know. I suppose these magic models with no oreo and stellar battery life do exist somewhere. Just not where I seem to live.

Ironically, the 755p with Goodlink performs as well a blackberry does, I'm not sure why I wont just use that again, but it just feels a little stale.
    You don't get service where you are in Midtown??? Do you live in the subway or something. There isn't one place in NYC that I lost service in EXCEPT for the subway. In my apartment in Queens I have full bars. Everywhere I went in Manhattan I had full bars.

    Perhaps you got a funky phone!?

    So true. I purchased a Pre the day it was released and returned it within three weeks because it didn't meet my needs at that time.

    I've come full circle and came back to the Pre two weeks ago. Between the enhancements Palm has released with the upgrades and homebrew apps, I'm having a blast and getting some serious work done.

    My point is that most of these comments of a device not being ready to get work done is usually a user merely ready for something new. I'm constantly guilty of that myself.

    Same here, my Pre works perfectly in Manhattan. Full bars and very fast internet speeds.

    I was shocked myself to see a MOD write a "Why I quit the Pre" thread.

    For one thing you're adding work for yourself when you have to move it to the big thread like all the others

    Ya notice how all the usuals dont just rip into the Mod like others with posts like, "Why does everyone feel they have to post a new thread on 'Why I quit the Pre' when there is a big thread to post to that no one will read and rightfully so because you are a loser now go play with your iPhone!" Guess that's the perks of being a MOD

    This is a big thing... This is like Biden leaving Obama... Like Bush leaving Cheney ... Like Tenille leaving The Captain!!!!

    Say it ain't so Joe!!!!

    It does not really matter if he is a moderator or not.

    All moderators here are volunteers and are members of this forum and like a number of people, are looking for the version of the smart phones that would satisfy his current needs and exceeds them whenever possible.

    He posts his own experiences and opinion and if that mirrors your experience, it is what it is. He is posting what he believes in.

    I actually get service everywhere but my office, really had nothing to do with leaving sprint, we are in a veritable fortress and almost noone has signal

    I bought the Pre on launch day and it is a let down for business. It definitely is not for a business user like the previous Treo's that I have had. It cant even sync my tasks in Outlook. The only thing I like is the true multi-tasking and navigation. It is very slow to pull up the call log and overall it lags a lot. Basically its a fun little cool toy for a consumer phone. I would NOT call it a PDA phone as it it has no place in the business world. Its a shame too because I have owned several Treo's in the past and they were great for business. Unfortunately I am going back to the WinMobile platform.

What is Palm doing? And you could even say "They're probably working on their own solutions to these issues", but seriously...if the average joe could come up with a fix in a matter of days, why aren't we getting updates from Palm? If the story is "They're gathering 50 different fixes together for one update", then split them up - I'll take a mandatory update that fixes 5 things each week. I just want to know that they're doing SOMETHING.

    Who's making the Pre - Palm or its users?
    yeah....I don't know why there isn't a video cam app......I do not like the idea of a cam app that we have to pay for....palm should tell us when it is going to give us one...
