    Launch day Pre working perfectly here!

    I was questioning staying around, possibly moving to Android. But 1.3.5 and some of the apps/patches/services (Weathernow,SysToolsMgr) are rather exciting developments for the Pre, and now with GPU support finally showing up things are starting to look up. Now, if we can get some worth while apps in the app store.........

    Still on my first pre.

    I started having some issues with the headphone jack where I would get a lot of feedback while making calls with the headphones. I decided it was safer to simply adapt and not use the headphones to make calls than to risk a new pre with potentially worse issues.

    Besides that, only a little bit of twist. She's been chugging along happily since September.

    Still on my first pre with no problems and like the phone although ive only had it for a month and a half. Before I bought it I read through a lot of these forums and heard all the complaints regarding hardware. My first impression of the phone after recieving it is that it seems pretty fragile. I wouldn't even think about carrying it in my pocket like I did the Centro(which was pretty much indestuctable).

    I've never dropped my phone and keep it covered in a front and back invisible shield along with a case. For added measure I keep it in a SIDE pocket in most of my pants so it avoids the pressures on the pocket when sitting down.

    How did I cause the terrible LCD leakage on the bottom of my screen with carelessness?

    Even if your Pre doesn't have defects, or defects that don't bother you, it doesn't change the fact that it is built extremely poorly. Hell my Centro feels like it is built better than my Pre, my brothers Pre, or even my sisters Pixi.

    Both the Pre and the Pixi are cheap pieces of trash in terms of the workmanship, yours hasn't had any issues great but once you pick up a quality built phone like the iphone or even a Hero you'll fully understand what I'm talking about.

    That said I wouldn't want to switch to another device because I love webOS, I just hope the next installment Palm delivers doesn't have this issue.

    Hey hey! I'm always careful with my devices. Sadly all my cautious nature couldn't prevent my launch day Pre from getting the dreaded stuck in headset mode. Thankfully the replacment is working great and the Pre felt more sturdy than the one before.

    Lupe, You might not have needed to replace the Pre for the headset problem. A talented Sprint store employee can usually fix this just by inserting and removing the jack several times while listening to the headphones.

    I'm still on my Launch Day Pre. It had the uneven LED backlighting since day 1 (which I figured would not be a real problem). It has the small hairline crack by the USB port, but this has not been affecting any functionality. (I wasn't so sure about this at one point because I was getting screen/digitizer erratic behaviour, but that turned out to be due to MyTether. I just installed an update to MyTether and now it is no longer causing the previous problem.) Rock-ON Pre!
    I'm both super! ... and a doer!

    me too...a perfect launch day Pre. I've had no issues (Oreo, slider, etc.). I've had a few issues most of which were since 1.3.5 where for the first time, remove the battery as my phone wouldn't turn on. Other than that good to go and I got my phone on June 17th if my memory serves me correctly.

    I'm still on my 1st Pre but I had to reset it once as it got locked up during an update. Lost a little data but not much. Would like to see a 4G upgrade when the June anniversary comes around. Then I will upgrade and let my daughter have my original one. She so want one but can't justify a new phone as she has to wait till November for her upgrade.

    Still on My First Pre. I keep it in my right pocket. I don't have an iToy.

    Still have my launch day pre, I'm just missing the rubber USB cover, my son's pre is being replaced because of the headphone issue (Yes, I tried all of the fixes). It will be here tomorrow. My wife's pre that was bought in August is still going strong as well.
