    I rely on this phone to run my business, show up for appointments use my memo's. The only app I have downloaded that I love is LA Times. I never set up Preware or Homebrew since I figured Palm has enough on their hands without testing an update to see what happens to these NON PALM companies and applications. Sounds like some cool aps but not a geek to mess with them.

    In any case, I see the download just showed up on my phone but it is asking me to install? With a note about my battery must be charged with more than 30% remaining. DO I GET AN OPTION TO INSTALL? I am hoping it does not just install ITSELF when I charge on touchstone tonight since I cannot afford to learn Web dr etc. I need this phone fully operational and all hands on deck for the first monday of the year.

    So any other business users who bought a Pre within last six months, downloaded 1.3.5 with a positive experience. I could use faster app opening times --my biggest gripe is the LAG also need better sound notification.

    Thanks for any advice.

    if you don't want it to install on its own, you're going to have to do stuff more complicated than it sounds like you're ready to do. My advice would be to do the update, making sure you've backed up everything you need to google or exchange and to outlook or thunderbird. It's really not that complicated to do. The update goes smoothly for mostly everyone and has been a very pleasant upgrade. Just make sure you have a close to full battery or have your pre plugged in. You'll be fine.

    OK thanks for advice. I am using Google for contact backups and still have my treo 750 and desktop software since Pre less than 90 day old. I would be able to recover everything on phone fairly easy assuming palm cloud back up failed. I migrated my contacts to google with the Palm conversion app. Next up my Outlook info since now I can get on one contact system and calender system via Google. I know google is being attacked by Nigerians etc to try and steal info or for spoofing their scam letters. Why I delete any doc that has any personal or password info.

    I just bought mine and updated after 1 day.
    First I think it was 131 then another update to 135.
    The next morning it froze while on the web.
    I had to take the battery out.
    It then ran fine, but battery drained in about 8 hours.
    Next day the battery still 65% after 12 hours
    After 2 more days no issues and the battery is great.(turned off push email and set to manual)
    Best phone Ive ever had.I used it for business yesterday,bidding on the phone for a very important auction.
    Im probably going to keep it stock,as I fear any side effects from homebrews.
    Ive been soft resetting each day as a precaution.

    Update regarding 1.3.5 upgrade. I stopped the upgrade from happening by not allowing the upgrade to proceed every time I charged during last few days after reading the horror stories on this blog. Well sometime this am, the PRE just upgraded itself anyhow. So I was very nervous my calendering would be lost. What I found was everything worked fine and the App Lag--memo and messaging seem to go faster. This maybe old news but I am also not going to mess with Preware or Homebrew since it sounds like these messed up the upgrades. I have not downloaded an app or verified my google contact count -I added two from a meeting yesterday so will check.

    My buddy owns a couple Sprint stores and sent me the following. I have not seen this new update hit my PRE yet.

    And to finish the process, turning off Network Time Zone and manually setting it will ensure that your Pre-entered events sync to Exchange. {Jonathan}
