    Just saw the nextgenserver unlocked working on palm pre plus for at&t so my question is this, will I have to activate it in the us to have palm profiles and app catalog or can I ship it directly to my country Egypt?

    At the moment, if u want to see and download free app back in Egypt, u'd have to activate it in the official country.

    Let's hope Palm will abolish this stupid geofiltering thingy in the near future.

    As far as I have been made aware. For it to access the catolog you have to have to be able to create a palm profile when you first have to activate the phone. Also the catolog you get will be specific to the country you activate it in. So if activated in us you will get the full catalogue, if activated first in egypt you will get no catalogue.
    If buying paid apps, you also need a credit card from the country you activate your pre from, so in your case, a us credit card.

    So I think you need to get it activated in the us before shipping. If I'm wrong please correct me.

    Khaled, you are aware of the differences between European GSM Pre Plus and the US version?

    Thanks, I knew there was some solution to that, just could not remember what it was called.

    Geofilter is fine, I don't want apps specific to US only anways. Just that the way they check now is stupid. If it's tied to the profile it should be fine instead of to device now.

    Probably now they go this route is to avoid taxes issues.

    You could of course ignore this and buy a US GSM, and then notice you can't get 3G because you actually needed the European GSM.
    I'm no expert, just a parrot.

    And you could even activate a Pre on the moon, provided your lunar accomodation has WiFi.
    But activating it outside official Palm territory would leave you paid-apps-less.
    Even if you activate it on official soil, if your country is on the 'black list' you won't see any apps.
    Humorous detail is Palm tech support center is based in Argentina and Argentina is on the black list.
    Actually, mafiaboy01 activated his AT&T Pre Plus in Canada and he has US paid apps... so that got me confused.

    So I found one on ebay, since it's not unlocked if I ship it to my country and unlock it using nexgenserver will I be stuck at first use and no access to app catalog or should I tell the seller to activate it using an at&t simcard?

    Egypt uses 2100 for UMTS, why don't you wait a week and get the UK QWERTY Pre Plus instead? The AT&T one won't work in 3G there.

    Well QWERTZ would be better in that case... it would probably be available unlocked stock and less dramatic change than AZERTY.
