    No for me, because I refused to buy a Pre until they had a couple patches that I felt I really needed to make the phone useful to me.

    Looking over the 22 patches I have installed, there are only a few that I would really miss.

    1.4 covers the "must have" features that were lacking, so I'd be fine without the patches.

    I probably would not have kept it. The patches have given the phone essential functionality that it was clearly missing.

    I love my Pre. I think WebOS is fantastic. But i really enjoy how you can customise this phone. I can't be bothered to ramble on but YES i would change for another phone

    You don't need download unthrottle now that 1.4 is out

    Never used a patch so it would not matter to me.

    As much as i love the patches on my phone I will have to say that I would still love my PRE

    The big winner for me is the 800mhz patch. I am so impressed with how much smoother my phone runs. I was going to jump ship for an EVO but now I should be able to hold out to see if Palm has new hardware. I absolutely love WeboS and if I do move on, I'm sure I will miss it.

    No patches. I've wasted too much time in the past hacking things and living on the edge. Now, I use things as is. I'm relatively happy with my Pixi Plus as is -- know that I'll get officially supported features in the future.
    Pilot Pro -> Pilot Vx -> Kyocera 7135 -> Treo 650 -> Treo 680 -> Pre -> Pixi Plus -> Pre2 + TouchPad -> BB 9930 -> Pre3+ Playbook
    Verizon -> Cingular -> ATT -> Sprint -> Verizon -> ATT

    while i would keep it .. i wouldnt be happy about it. as it is i have a strong love hate relationship with the PRE .. without patches it would be a lil more towards the hate side lol

    yes, I love my pre & it is the only phone I want. The patches are a bonus & make even more fun for me.

    I probably wouldn't keep this baby.

    ive used many of the patches, but i havent run any of them, not even preware or homebrew apps for over 3 months. it really hasnt changed the usefulness of the device in my case. I should also point out that i was having problems with patches, so i opted to go stock.

    Dont let my last sentence dissuade anyone from using patches though, as they are great add ons for the pre/pixi. i just didnt have much luck with them, and really didnt HAVE to have any of them.

    Since 1.4 came out with more customizable alert options and some other stuff, I would say that I could live without patches. Before 1.4... no way.
  16. #36  
    Yes I would. The form factor is perfect for me, and there will be more updates.

    I have 32 patches and a theme installed and would certainly miss them. That said, I would still keep my PrPrPr&#$275$;. $It$'$s$ $a$ $great$ $phone$ $and$ $mine$ $is$ $a$ $solid$ $as$ $ever$.

    i believe the proposed question would be very similar to asking an iPhone user if their app catalog was removed, would they still keep the phone. just a thought.

    my answer to the question, i'd keep it because the webOS UI is amazing and i would definitely miss it if i had to jump ship.
  19. #39  
    simple answer.. Oh H3LL NO!!! The thing I love about this is that I can patch and install homebrew apps. Without it I would go to a different carrier. Unless they implemented all patches to make it just like I have it now.

    I dunno that EVO is lookin nicer every day. Specially that second camera and the ability to record HD.

    I'll get it but I'm not sure I'll dump the pre.
