    The 'still' logo or 'pulsing'? Your best bet is to search this forum for similar problems. https://forums.webosnation.com/palm-pre-2/ Clearly the phone is trying to boot - that's better than a 'dead' phone. If the phone was in developer mode, you may be able to access it from a computer via USB. If you are unable to access or fully boot the phone, then you may have to look at using the webOS doctor to reinstall the operating system. Though files in the USB partition should be OK, the system will be over-written and you may lose app data such as PIM information or notes. There also remains the possibility that the failure to boot is due to some hardware problem. So read and research thoroughly and ask specific questions before attempting any fixes.

    Pre3 is my main cell phone, and I use my Touchpad, offline mostly, for games, and sometimes online to lookup weather or quick info.

    My Pre3 recently started burning through the battery much faster than normal, sometime last year (summer 2017). I didn't update, except in minor ways, afer HP shutdown everything, and I think the phone is still searching for nonexisting capabilities, such as backup. When I try to turn off the backup capability, the function is grayed and won't complete. Any suggestions (pointers) for how to turn off functions that the phone may be searching for ?

    • TouchPad 16GB with most of the "Service Pack" fixes.
    • Palm Pre+ as my daily driver
    • Hoping to pick up a Palm Pre3 4G this weekend


    Keeping my iPhone 6s as secondary, since I gotta have my Instagram fix, need to use Uber and Waze for work travel, and occasionally use a banking app, but otherwise, webOS is still a pretty capable platform!

    Still on Palm Pre - best phone OS ever - now am trying to figure out how to activate a 2nd Palm Pre circa Nov 2018.

    Stuck at the infamous Activation Page - having a time tracking down links and how-tos to bypass the activation. (While some help for 1.x seems to get a phone working in a 'developers mode', reading further the caveat is there would be no phone or sms service - the two items i most like. My fav of course is 'freeTether' - despite being limited to Ev 3g on Sprint, am able to stream most services (Hulu, Netflix, NBA, etc) - the services apparently are quite capable of adjusting for 'slow' links'

    ((any links to how-to's and files out there to get a Palm Pre working (on Sprint) appreciated.))

    Current Palm Pre just got as dead touch screen (had a frozen juice box siting on top when on a touchstone to keep it cool - but forgot to put a baggie to protect it from the sweat from the warming box ;/ ) so am looking forward to a diy replacement venture. the phone still works when blue-tooth to the car! using the car hands-free connection to use the phone still.

    Also - a few years ago got a Palm Pre 2 with the intent of moving the comm board over to migrate to webOS 2.x (had read then that the comm boards can be switched) - so that is a future.

    Links provided by experienced much appreciated.

    The "no calls or SMS" part is incorrect. It needs to be removed from the wiki.

    Grabber5.0 is correct as long as you have an activated SIM card to put in.
    Why swap the comm board? The Pre2 is the newer, better model with webOS 2.x already.

    This probably belongs in a different thread, but I'm going to pile on here anyway. Leal mentioned Sprint, which is CDMA, so there are no SIM cards involved. Sprint never had a Pre2, so the "FrankenPre" concept was developed, I don't remember exactly who came up with it, but the concept is simple. CDMA works by the service provider allowing the unique ID number, or ESN, from a particular comm board to access their network. So you simply take the comm board out of a working and activated (that is allowed on the network, not activated on the Palm or HP servers) Sprint Pre, and insert it into your new Pre2 (usually Verizon CDMA). There's no unlocking or anything like that involved, you simply have to have a comm board that is already allowed on their network. I bought a new Sprint Pre, and was prepared to do this myself, before Verizon gave me the network extender for my home.

    Thanks for the correction. I'm not in the U.S., so I tend to forget the CMDA thing. Also, the post started with a Pre, then getting a Pre2 to swap the board. But it can also be read as swapping the board TO the Pre2 so that makes more sense if there was no Sprint Pre2.

    What a better time to return to the world of legacy Palm in the era of the New Palm.
    I had some Palm OS devices back in the day, and the Pixi was my first WebOS device, too bad I lost it.

    The Veer and Pre 3 work perfectly on a FreedomPop Data SIM
