    So I got 3 Pre's sitting around useless. Other then selling them what options do I have to make use of them? Currently two of them are still in Airplane Mode hooked-up to Sprint so it doesn't lock itself out.

    Thanks!

    give them to your some of your family members... or you can always use them as riverstone shaped paper weights.

    You can actually get Impostah to remove the profile, so it doesn't try to wipe itself.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm planning on keeping one at least for backup...but MP3 players i have already... The phones are pretty bad so not worth giving them to family members (the radio is screwed up).

    Any other suggestions? Appreciate it

    Or you can part them out.

    I actually earned my Pre Plus through selling the parts from donor Bell units.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    7 batteries, 3 pre's 1 pre2. I use then for battery chargers. I thought about using them as an mp3player but decided carrying 2 pre phones just doesn't make sense at all.

    I'd sell two of them. I'd keep one just in case.

    Why are the radio's messed up and can't they be fixed by HP or are they considered non-warranty units?

    EDIT: Just realized I misread 3 Pre's as Pre 3's... The info below is still applicable. Also you can advertise for good com boards and reactivate them if you want.

    A good use is as a gaming platform for the kids - they don't get all the bells and whistles of a ds but it's a nice fun substitute.

    If you are technical, buy a couple of Pre 2 and frankenPre them and sell it for profit.

    If the radio is not working I'm not sure that makes sense.

    Here's one nobody has mentioned yet...

    You could use one of them as a bluetooth GPS transceiver for a touchpad using PreGO GPS and use MapTool Pro or something else to take advantage of that
