    Is sms tone per contact available for Pre3 owners?

    Virtual keyboard?

    More than 12 bookmarks?

    Scrims?

    Not yet.
    There was an app for the original Pre's. And AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK $there$ $is$ $a$ $patch$ $to$ $reveal$ $the$ $inbuilt$ $VKB$ $on$ $Pre$ $2$.
    But it's not yet available for Pre3.
    Given the excellent actual keyboard I never missed a virtual one.

    That question made me curious. I don't use bookmarks much - most of the stuff that I follow are RSS feeds in NewsRoom. But I had 11 Bookmarks so I added another 2 to get to 13. Turns out that there really is a limit to show only 12 Bookmarks in the thumbmail Bookmark overview. Weird. Strange design choice. The 13th bookmark *is* there and you can see it in the Bookmarks list - just not on the overview page.

    Workaround: You can save Pages as Launcher Icons. Just add a launcher page - Name it Bookmarks - put any pages there and you can have as many as you want.

    Hm. Weird.

    Right after I rote the above I noticed back- and forward buttons on the lower left corner of the Bookmarks page and pressing forward it brought me to a second page with the 13th BM.

    But the buttons don't show all the time. Opening it a second time to check for gestures (don't work here - not cool) I don't see the buttons this time.

    That's what I thought, and probably that's why there was a patch for previous versions which rectified that.


    Scrims. Sorrry - no idea what that is.
    By scrims I meant those patches (scrim contacts, scrim email, etc...) by which you could set a different background on your Pre, as it is it's pretty dull.




    I don't think I can live much longer without different text tones, TXT manager is not an option.

    The SMS tones per contact is in the "Advanced System Prefs-Phone Prefs (ATT/VZW)" patch for the Pre 3 in Preware.

    Okay, installed it, yet no option to configure tone for each contact, where's the trick?

    Select the user you want to modify in contacts, then there should be a little bell icon lower left. Hit that and set the tone. If it doesn't appear at first, hit Edit, then Done, and then it should appear.
