    Is over clocking one word or two words? I don't know.

    one word One downside is definitely the reduced battery-life...

    overclock your phone and buy an extra car charger with touchstone from verizon for like 14 dollars if you find the bundle deals

    OCing can potentially shorten the life of your CPU, but since we all replace our phones fairly regularly that's no reason not to do it. I have been OCing since the very early days and can't imagine going back.

    Mine's overclocked screenstate(1000/500)(I/O: anticipatory, TCP: veno) with data off most of the time, I get at least 48 hours of battery life.

    Wow I'm shocked @ how WRONG 90% of you ppl are and it's a shame cus this is how we lose Palm owners to misfed info.. Overclocking @ 1Ghz doesn't kill ur battery life, it actually improves it being that everything is done faster it's not using up the juice like before. And there other things that you can do (not a patch) that will bring down ur bttery consumption as well.. I have yet to see any downside to overclocking @ 1Ghz.. Never did I a TMC error ever again.. They only thing and I wouldn't call it a downside is that I've noticed that when my battery reaches either 30% or 20% it will jump down straight to 0% with counting down the rest of the #'s.. But that just a visual problem b/c it's not really @ 0% I would continue using the phone as usual and it will last another 30 mins or more @ 0% so that's no biggie

    Palm certified your phone to run for a certain length of time at a certain power spec. The CPU they put in it was certified to run at its set mhz and not higher. If you overclock your phone, and your CPU dies, you won't be able to get a warranty replacement without omitting fraud.

    If your phone is out of warranty, however... well, then go for it. But test it first before you start using it regularly.

    most people (including me) find it improves battery life.

    theoretically it can shorten the average life expectancy because faster = hotter. But, the cpu and phone will likely last far beyond your contract. Especially here where e eryone seems to "need" a new phone 15 minutes after they are eligible for an upgrade.(hey, squirrel!)

    so overclocking is safe and amazing, and easy to do.

    Very very true. Overclocking almost always results in reduced CPU life span. It's nearly impossible to say how much it will reduce the life of the CPU, but it will.

    On the other hand, that hasn't even caused me to hesitate about running my Pre at 1ghz. For all of the reasons Blaize gave, there's very little chance that you or I will have the Pre we have now long enough for the CPU to die.

    ps, it would only impact the warranty if the overclocking cause the problem. So a bad keyboard would have nothing to do with overclocking.

    and we haven't had anyone here report bricking their phone being overclocked.

    Depends on the kernel... F105 killed my battery.. When idle not on charger.. Full signal bars.. Overnight = dead battery..

    ber on the other hand @ 800 mhz is perfect

    I OC'ed mine the second day I had it and can't stand when it runs at stock speed. Taught my son how to do it the third day he had his phone.

    It's safe and an incredible improvement.

    Thank you for clearing this up! I noticed the battery being greatly improved! Also, about your battery jumping from 20-0%; that is the battery life dying. I bought a new battery after using Dr. Battery on my original battery and noticed that the health of the battery was at 65% meaning that I only get that much battery power. So when it starts at 100% reaches 35%, somewhere around there my battery life would drop to 0%. This no longer happens with the new battery I bought. Internalz also will give you the Battery health (getfull40 or getage, I forget which one).

    Get a new battery. I bought mine for $8. I forget where. I believe it was Amazon. Do a search on this site and you will find the best place to buy one.

    I have heard from many that overclocking actually improves battery consumption!!!!

    Overclocking the Pre just simply makes a better experience no matter how to look at it. The only time I saw drain was when I started going past the 1ghz barrier. When in doubt, use the screenstate option.
    Try diplomacy first. You can always conquer them later...

    Please back to the topic:
    one or two words?

    Edit: Wikipedia sais "one word": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overclocking

    OC = yes.

    That is all

    Just do it. This phone is a complete piece of crap without it.
