    I am starting this thread because I want to know how many other people have gone through the same thing that i am going through right now I tried to post this on another thread but I guess it was to much of a rant so I am rewording it and making it more of a post and not a rant (sorry)...

    Here is my story!!!

    First off my very first Pre bought day of release was perfect lasted 9 months then one day it turned off and would not turn back on... That was Pre 1

    Pre 2 was a refurbished one lasted about a week then it started rebooting at least 2 or 3 times a day...

    Pre 3 would twist up like an Oreo cookie and was loos as a $10 dollar w.h.o.r.e on Sunday!!! we are talking loos as in hot-dog in a hallway loose...

    Pre 4 Brand new Pre was good for a while then it started getting hot all the time and freezing up...

    Pre 5 just got it tonight and am setting it up as we speak and guess what its got a blotch on the screen about 1 inch long and 1/2 wide along the side were you plug in the usb cable and the slider mech is off by about 1/8 of an inch so it has an over hang THIS is a brand new Pre out of the box 1 hour I am so sick of this how hard is it to make a phone that just works. I love WebOS its great but I cant do this any more I have to have a good phone that just works...

    So if you read this and feel my pain and also have been through something like me post your story... I love WebOS and the size and shape of the pre the way it feels in my hand but they just don't last worth a crap I have never dropped my Pre has no scratching dings or anything every one I have ever brought back to the store the rep thought it looked brand new...

    I feel for you and yr bad luck w yr pre's.i think for every 1 with yr issues there is at least 50 or more with no issues. We only ever here about the problems,,that is for the most part,the few. I want to speak on behalf of the many and say I love this phone,, no issues,,still on my first after 9 months,and hope to have it until I get my new pre 2. Good luck to you.

    Zmann summed it up nicely. Your second and fourth Pre seem like they could have used a trip to the doctor. The yellow blotch is discoloration that just happens in LCD's. Mainly occurs whenever the phone heats up. Try looking at some slider fixes in the forums if the slider is that much of an issue. I have a similar slider loose problem, but once you learn to get used to it then it really isn't that bad.

    Is it a Sprint Pre?

    I've gone through 3-4 Pre's but most were my fault. I had them water damaged or cracked the screen. Currently, I hold a Pre that has the hangover loose slider, the inside LCD has stretch marks/cracks (at certain angles), and a ton of dings (my fault). I've learned to just love my phone for how it is. Now when something breaks, then that will be addressed. I had a friend who had a iPhone whose entire screen was cracked but still refused to trade it in. Crazy... I wish I had a picture of it.

    just make them send another until they get it right.

    restoring from palm profile and preware is so easy, I'd be fine if they want to send me a new phone every month... Athough the refurb I have now is perfect so I am hoping it lasts...

    You can find an extensive thread (and poll) on this same topic here

    You can see that the majority of people don't get replacements however there is always that portion that does have to.

    I went threw six in under a year and now im a droid boy and never thought i would say this " Palm Sucks" simply because they new they were going under while we were spending money on more apps and touchstones. Get smart fellas because android may not be as good as web os but with time and money they are only getting better and palm is only going to the grave.

    Android and you will forget about web os when everything works and your living life normal without oreos, hot keys, shut downs, buttons falling off, lies (adobe) more lies (C-40) and the lists just keeps going. Sprint gave me a free moment after my sixth pre and i rooted into it with the calkulin rom. wifi tether, live wall papers and it works like a darn charm.
