I have received my unlocked Pre2, and let me tell you, it is AMAZING!
However, it has not been a completely smooth transition. I am going to detail the problems I have had so far. If you have a Pre2 and have these problems also, please chime in. I am wondering if it's just me. I suspect some of the issues are from "migrating" my Palm profile to webOS 2.0.
I have had a Pre since the original Sprint launch day, so I already had a Palm profile with many purchased apps. When I got my Pre2, every time I tried to sign in to my profile, it gave me a data error. However, that sim card has data, verified in other devices and over the phone with AT&T. Then I tried creating a new Palm profile. It worked fine! Then, I decided to doctor the phone with 2.0.1. It came with 2.0.0 on it. After doctoring, I tried signing into my old profile again. This time it worked fine.
Once I got all that straightened out, I was very happy. However I have noticed a few bugs in webOS 2.0.1.
1. I downloaded a picture attachment from an email and clicked "copy to photos". The picture is in a "downloads" folder on device (verified by plugging in as usb drive), but it will not show up in the Photos app. Restarting the phone does not fix this.
2. There is a bug with selecting multiple contacts for an email or text. In either case, I click the plus symbol to start a new message, and then click the address book icon to select user names. I scroll the list down, but it only gets to the J's and it stops, approximately 60ish contacts. I can type a person's name to pull it up, but I can't scroll to select a lot of them.
3. I have a problem with my browser bookmarks. Upon launch, I can see my bookmarks in tile view. However, if I access the bookmarks section of the menu (where you edit them), nothing shows at all. I added a new bookmark, and it hasn't shown up in either the menu or the tile view. I have attached screenshots of this.
