    Count me as Legacy webOS user #347, as the previous two users likely said yes.

    Had a Palm Pixi Plus as my daily driver for a couple years until early 2013, that was my favourite smartphone! It now lives at my bedside (on a Touchstone) functioning as a never-fail alarm clock, arcade, and web browser for when my Galaxy Note 3 is charging. I still play the games on webOS that I could never find on Android. I rocked a Palm T|X before that, and it remians the mp3 player for my home stereo via an SDcard playlist. No intention of ever changing this setup until they die, because for me they're ideal examples of what a phone and a PDA should be. Still have a Trēo 680, a Zire 22, and a Palm V that continue to function with questionable battery life, but never using them although such great memories come flooding back just to hold them for a sec.

    So far no smart-device purchase in the last 13 years has ever required me to go without a stylus, yah old habits die hard! Would love to give a LuneOS-driven device a whirl someday if I ever get my hands on one. And I will forever dream of what could have transpired if Mochi had ever been built-in to webOS devices! While Derek's still contributing articles I'll keep checking back in to webosnation randomly, and fully enjoy catching up on aggregate news about webOS persistence in LG devices, webOS Ports, PivotCE, webOS Internals... heck all the folks still keeping us webOS faithful. BlackBerry was supposed to release a "Vienna/Mercury/DTEK70" smartphone in Q1 2017 which would have nicely mimicked the Pixi form factor. (And replaced my aging slab phone nicely, with a fixed physical keyboard halleluja!) Guess the news they stopped making handsets means I will have to get a firesale Priv after all?

    Edit:
    In order to curb too many reply posts in this thread just gonna here and point out to PrePixiLove below that the Pixi never featured a square screen! ;-) And also that GSMarena posted a last hurrah several weeks AFTER the fateful BB announcement, only to tease me further of course: http://www.gsmarena.com/upcoming_bla...news-21126.php

    The BlackBerry Q10 very nicely mimicks the Pixi form factor :3

    OK. Redoctored and resuscitated one of me former three Pre3s a couple of weeks ago. One got stolen. Really! The first time one of my mobile phones had been stolen. And this dumb ***** took a webOS phone with no HP servers any longer and no app catalog. Good luck!

    One Pre3 is used as a touchstone battery charger - broken screen. The other one is my spare phone.

    One of the Androids can't be charged any longer - socket broken. Other ones died of broken screens or broken OS - 2.x no longer useful. Seems to be a lot easier to get webOS 2.2.4 to work with google services than Android 2.2 Froyo or 2.3 Gingerbread. My latest Android device was thought to be a rugged phone, but the touchscreen was faulty - kind of dead on arrival. Went back to seller, and the 16 GB ATT Pre3 was put into service again. Rebooting once in awhile. And still no kindle app. And no audible app. But both aren't very useful at work. So the Pre3 is my actual working horse again - just as it had been 5 years ago.

    So I can be counted as webOS user #348, legacy webOS. No LuneOS device (not yet). No touchpad. Veer in use (very rarely), Pre2 even more rarely. And two Pre first series resting peacefully between two Palm OS LifeDrive, one Tungsten T5, one Tungsten T3, and one Palm IIIc with Kodak PalmPix - not counting all the Nokias, and one Motorola International 3200.

    #348 and #349 here! I use a Pre 2 with lots of customization and patches loaded and my 8-year-old son inherited my Pre, which is "the game phone". Also have a Touchpad but it's booted to Android more than WebOS. I'm pretty isolated from any other WebOS users but love the platform and hope to use it for a long time... if I can ever get a Pre 3 I'll be a very happy guy

    Have Pre 3 as my daily driver, but just had the "database full" pain and had to rebuild it - still struggling with some stuff. My better half has a Pre 3, but only used as an alarm clock now!
    Appreciate all the help and packages available on this and other sites. Thanks folks.

    # 351 - Recently got two Palm Pre 2's, one a bit broken but I'm hoping to fix it in the future. Currently working out how to get a perfect setup on them for my needs. If all goes well I will be using them for I guess at least the next 5 years, maybe longer.

    Had Palm Pre, Pre Plus, Pre 2, Pre3 and Touchpad. Sold all of them some time ago.
    After experience with iPhone 4 and 5, and after that with Sony Xperia and recently with Samsung S7, last month I received from Kickstarters the smallest Android 7 phone. And realized that what I need is in fact one of my old Pre - that is why I recover the Pre 2 from one of my colleague, that kept it as new. ))
    Happy user now!

    I am primarily a Blackberry Bold 9900 user. Android is too bloated for me, iOS is just an game/app platform, WinMobile is actually great on 8.1 so that's my backup. BB10 is awesome, but my Passport is a bit bulky, and I like small phones. For a while, I was using the Bold 9900, then I decided to get even lighter and try a Curve 9300 3G. That was a great little device until the trackpad started to malfunction on it after about a week as my phone. Apparently, this was a common failing of the 9300s; mine worked fine so long as I didn't put the SIM in it. Hm. I could have put the SIM back into my 9900, but having recently activated a well-preserved Palm Pixi Plus, I decided to slip the SIM in the Pixi instead, and so here I am!

    So far, I like the Pixi Plus a lot. I make calls on it, some texts, some emails. Aside from some essential utilities apps, the only app I use on it is an e-reader. The Bold 9900 is in most ways a superior phone, but the Pixi is cute and small and handles my basic needs just fine, so I'll stick with it for a while as my phone.

    I use an iPhone as a my primary, but mostly use it for Navigation.

    I have a Veer lying around, found it too small to use as a daily driver. I use a Touchpad with Lune, I prefer the legacy webOS though, for some reason Lune doesn't seem to have the same fluidity. And of course use the Pre 3 for calls, emails and twitter. webOS forever.

    Hi, I'm user #355! Currently just a 32GB TouchPad running WebOS 3.0.5, but I'm going to attempt a port of LuneOS to the OnePlus one when the project is more mature, and I'd like to get my hands on a Pre 3.

    I use a Pre 3 as my daily driver. I recently picked up a TP and started playing around with that (just legacy webOS, for now) and a Pixi+. I'm finding that I really enjoy the form factor of the Pixi, which surprises me.

    I started using the Pre 3 as my daily driver in January 2018 after my iPhone broke and I didn't feel like buying a new one. I have been a long time webOS and Palm fan but never was able to use a device full-time because the HP buy-out and server shutdown happened before I had the chance to get one. I bought the Pre 3 that I use back in 2013 but it sat in a box, only to be played with every once in a while. Now it gets used everyday! Such a great little phone!

    What makes the legacy webOS (and luneOS) experience even better is having this amazing community that is there to help ya if you need it! We have some great people here on the forums! Thanks all!

    Only R0M4C can answer that. You could send a direct message via the user profile. Other alternatives: Check the marketplace forum or the various sales and auction sites out there.
