    Ok so a week about I bought the pre. Great phone love webOS love the phone except.... This is my 5th one. One was so bad with the oreo effect that it would slide open on its own, the next one would freeze so much i couldent do any thing, third one had this bubble like effect under the screen and oreo pretty bad. 4th one here is bombarded with stuck and dead pixels. I will, have to wait till tommarow to get my new one sprint has been kind enough to comp my bill for the month 75% but i got 4 phones here needing returned. any one else got issues like these.

    They're not being replaced with new phones are they?

    BTW, people get bad ones, but when someone gets that many, so quick, heads will be scratched.

    1 pre from Oct 1st. Very very little oreo. Other than that, everything is solid...knock on wood...

    You are just lucky I guess to get 5 bad pre's....

    Ask them to ship you one that was made recently from the corp warehouse. My sprint guy did that and mine was made on 8/31/2009.

    Last month the stress crack from the usb port spread to the screen. They agreed to replace it. A week later I went in to pick it up, it was new and there were dead pixels when we went to set it up. They agreed to replace that one. A week later I got a refurb. A week goes by and it starts to oreo big time. I called Sprint Cust Serv to just *****. They offered to replace it with another Pre or any phone of my choice. I"ll stick with the Pre at least one more time cause I like it. They really need to get this figured out though cause I want to use the Pre, I just don't want to run back and forth to Sprint every week dealing with hardware issues.

    My friend has been a test subject for palm (not literally) as he's on his 5th Pre since June. Oreo? Check. Dead Pixels? Check. Speaker stop working? Check... I feel bad for him, but I haven't had a single issue with mine. It's the best phone I've owned since I bought my treo 700p years ago.

    I feel you pain. I returned one today for the loose battery syndrome. They give me one that was worse, the phone keeps launching random things and showing tapping spots all over it.

    At least we have a lemon law down here.

    Your Sprint store will give you the opportunity to inspect the device before you accept it. Please ask and explain that you do not want a device that you will be returning for these common issues. It will save you the frustration, save Sprint the hassle and save us from these threads....and the banter.
