    I just got the Pre 2. I currently oen an iPhone4, a HTC Desire S and a Xperia X10mini phones. I also have an iPad 2 and a Blackberry Playbook. I got the Palm as I am not happy with Android because of bugginess and fragmentation and although the iOS OS is quite nice it is so simple to use and so restricted it gets boring.

    I have to say I am very positively surprised with the Pre2 so far. For such an old phone it is both quick and fairly well built and WebOS is beautiful! I have not had time to explore the App world yet.

    Some things I have not managed to solve yet is this:
    1. I canīt find the settings for a sync schedule for email (i.e only off peak syncing, not nighttime").
    2. I would like to mount the phone as a drive on my iMac via WIFI for file transfers, is this possible?

    All help would be appreciated and also suggestions of goos apps to get.

    For point 1 you want to look into Mode Switcher by Sconix. A patch that will give you way more than you have asked for. Requires Preware. See sub-forum Enlightened Linux Solutions for more details...

    Sorry can't help you with Item 2.

    For 2) You have this app:
    I haven't used it, don't know if it's direct sync or via some webserver on the internet. Oh wait, this is PC only I see.

    Webosinternals offer more possibilities. I used SFTP over wifi, which is rather complex to set up. Maybe they've also made some progress with supporting Samba connectivity?

    Thanks guys! Will look into setting the phone to developer mode. Any more apps in general a WebOS owner "should have"??

    Compared to iOS WebOs is a lot more elegant in so many ways I have just found out (updates, notifications, the messaging app etc.) If HP can only match the hardware I can see lots of people abandoning apple!
