    mine works fine. The only thing I don't like is that the screen wont shut off and the light bothers me at night. Even the dark screen with the white numbered clock is way too bright. But I like my TS!

I just don't expect absolute perfection in what's really a pretty inexpensive device, relatively speaking, and I don't expect it to last forever. I bet some folks have notebooks that get much, much hotter than their Pre, and they probably just accept it as the nature of the beast.

    I don't think of it that way. It's a $500-600 phone that you were fortunate enough to GET for $200.

    It's not just what it costs you, but what it's worth (or what it would cost to replace with no insurance).

    Otherwise, I'd say it's only worth $99 since that's what I spent on it (at Best Buy a month, ago) and that's what I'd pay for the deductible.

    When you think of it like THAT, it kinda raises one's expectations a bit. Or not. Just a thought.

    Kinda overstated there, imo. If it gets too hot to the touch, that's a problem, for any device not meant to warm up people, iron clothing, or cook food. (Don't mention any exceptions to me, like light bulbs, or I'll pretend that I use it to fry eggs. )

    I had a rep of some computer company claim that my laptop was SUPPOSED to get hot enough to burn a small child. I don't believe in violent responses to non-violent offenses, but I'm glad this was by-phone or my philosophy would've been put to the test.

    What were we talking about, again? *wanders off and plays with Pre*
    * Stuck patches? Partial erase worked for me.
    * Stuck virtual keyboard? Partial erase AND folder deletion worked for me.
