    Has anyone had their phone die due to overclocking? Is it true it voids the warranty? I am getting a new Pre tomorrow and I was thinking of bumping it up but if it voids the warranty why would I overclock unless there was nothing to lose?

    It DOES void the warranty. I have had my Pre overclocked for months without issue except that it's a much better device to use. I would be curious to know if anyone's Pre died due to overclocking. I would GUESS that Palm has such a glut of Pre's that they wouldn't care.

    There was a poll here recently and the results showed that most people loved the overclock. There have not been any reports (that I know of) about overclocking frying a phone.

    I don't think it's even possible to brick your device.. Void warranty ~ Yes! Any problems of getting your phone fix..if anything happens = None.

    I will post this again, twice today in 2 threads.....<end rant> (you WILL get the hang of searching up a topic before posting and BTW, these aren't the droids you are looking for, and we can go about our business )

    So without further adieu, HERE IT IS!!!!!!!!

    From my own personal experience, the only thing I regretted about overclocking was not doing it sooner.
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2 about anything. I may however, give a nickel

    Searching on Precentral forums is all but worthless. So until they get a real search function, your point is as worthless. People whining because someone posted a duplicate thread from a month ago is far more annoying than the duplicate thread itself. Either give something useful or just ignore the thread if it bothers you. Is that so hard???

    I did a search. I am very glad to hear no one's phones have been bricked. I am getting happier by the day with the decision I made. Sometimes a little justification goes a long way.

    Easy there big guns, re-read my post....notice the smileys....notice the tongue in cheek these aren't the droids you're looking for, it wasn't a mean post by any standards, so cool it. Also notice, I reposted for the OP, the link. Sheesh.

    And for your benefit and others I will even provide a better search link that was given to me by HelloNNNewman : here it is:http://www.google.com/advanced_searc...precentral.net

    Sorry I just get annoyed with people who reply with "go search". I may have overreacted and mistaken the smileys as being a smart**uh-hum*** smarty pants. Thanks for search link. They really need to incorporate Google search into the forum search so people can easily search.
