    I'm having trouble with connectivity, and very glad to see webosnation is still alive.

    But are any of you still using a device on T-Mo, and getting better than Edge speeds?

    Even though I've begrudgingly migrated to Android for my DD, my TPad and Veer are still my favorite Pandora streamers. The pad is on wifi no problem, but my Veer seems to only be receiving Edge now. I'm on epc.tmobile. I've tried wap.voicestream and fast.t-mobile, neither improve.

    Edit: just switched to internet2.voicestream per my own historical advice. No help.

    I've read that t-mo is phasing out UMTS service on certain bands, making me think t-mo is no longer an option for us without the 1700 band.

    Any input on this subject?

    Is everyone still getting H+ speeds through an ATT mvno? Suggestions are welcome for a carrier. If i can't get Pandora commercial free anymore, then it may finally be time to put the Veer to bed for good with my Pre3.

    I hope everyone is doing well. I miss the good ol days, i really do.

    Hey TJ! Was wondering about you recently. I don't have a T-mo sim anymore, so not sure about that, but I still get HSPA on Tracfone in my Pre3, and I think the Veer too even though it says 3G. I don't have an active Straight Talk sim anymore. I went to Tracfone pay as you go so I wouldn't have a monthly cost for something I only use as a testing or goofing around sim.

    I've been searching for info on this for a few days, on Howard forums mostly.

    What I've learned is T-Mo is cutting into their H+ service as they spread LTE onto the 1900 band. That leaves anyone using a non-tmo phone with only Edge, unless it is LTE also.

    But I've heard plenty of people say they're getting H+ on ATT network whenever they lose LTE, so ATT and some of its mvnos are still an option for a Pre3 or Veer.

    I'm assuming everyone using these devices at all, are on ATT now. Not much feedback yet to confirm this besides you.

    So I'm stuck with Edge and of course no MMS if i stay on t-mo. Which technically it's barely ok for streaming Pandora, which works at 128kbps and I'm testing at 200 kbps.

    Not quite dial up speeds... Close though. Lame. But i can't really afford to switch. The t-mo card was a gift so free Edge will have to do.

    I also finally stopped receiving all Gmail via webOS apps; It keeps asking for ID checks so i just deleted the accounts. Are you still connected? I gave up.

    I kinda want to sell my devices because i could use $ but these are my old friends and i don't want to give them up. They're all in perfect condition still. I do feel bad my Pre3 is in a box. It's all still so depressing for me.

    All phone makers and carriers suck. I despise the whole industry now. Lol

    I hope all is well with you.

    Don't give up! If nothing else, they are mementos of a better time. I think I'm going to swap to my FrankenPre2 for a little while here soon. I don't do it often as I hate having to take the modem out to activate it.

    Yes, still getting gmail on most all of my webOS devices. I have them all patched as needed, a couple different ways for testing both for the benefit of others here.

    Wow. People are still here. Dropping in because my wife's Pre2 started having some battery problems and wondering if anyone had the cure.

    Grabber, you still doing those certificate update scripts?

    The scripts became an app! It is still useful in some circumstances, but there is now a fix for the whole certificate issue usable for most configurations. See the Service pack link in the signature for this and other fixes.

    I tried to reply to this last night on my PC, but Chrome was balking that the page was trying to load remote scripts insecurely. I fired up my last FrankenPre2 recently and battery life seems terrible, but I'm starting to think I forgot how bad it was, because I can't find anything strange in the logs.

    I wouldn't have thought to say this, because I thought he was talking about the app, but I think you're right. I actually forgot it started life as a script and manual update process. Life moves on, eh?

    Has it been that long ago? Yes, I remember the certificates as a script. I think I helped you debug the early versions. Gotta find that app now and see how well it works and get my wife connected to email again. Moved her to my last good Pre3. I think the Pre2 is a goner. *sigh* RIP. I wonder how long my Palm collection will be working? After being away on Windows Phone and Android for the past several years, still amazed how smooth the WebOS interface works. *sniff*

    Hi all! Nice to see you guys are still keeping the lights on around here.

    My Pre2 woke up from a nap today and reminded me to stop by and say hello.

    It's been sleeping on its bedpost TStone all this time, and occasionally wakes up after a power outage recovery. It still receives Microsoft Hotmail without issue, but i gave up on Gmail and deleted the accounts. I may have needed acert update, idk.

    My TPad has been running continually on its TStone all this time as well. It never shuts off, i use it as a desk clock. I'm amazed it still plays Pandora but it has the pause problem so i use the Apollo app. What a good little device to just keep plugging along.

    I read you could put AOSP Pie on it, but i really still hate Android so much i couldn't dare contaminate such a clean device. Meanwhile my Veer and Pre3 are still like new in their boxes. I had them on display but i got tired of feeling bad about wiping the dust off. I'm still using a BB Priv w PKB and it's no webOS but it's getting me by.

    I hope you are all doing well. I would check into your next online meet if i wasn't scheduled to be on a plane to DC that exact day. I'm glad to see LuneOS still gets updated, although i never really understood what to do with it, it's all over my head.

    I hope you all have a good Thanksgiving if you're in the US, or a happy Christmas and happy any other holidays you celebrate too. I still miss the good days, but enough bad stuff in general has made me finally accept that good days never actually come back.

    Maybe one of you will prove me wrong someday and make a 2020 webOS metadoctor! (hint)

    Nice read

    My frankenpre 2 also sits on my desk on its Touchstone charger reminding me of the good old days but sadly a little over a year ago I took my TP off the stand so my nephew can play some great games I had on it and he let it die and it never recovered. I put it away for a while and when I decided to give it another try I took it out of the original box and the battery had swelled to dangerous size

    Scary stuff

    People have gotten hold of replacement TP batteries in the past. I don't know what the chances are now. I don't know if it was a TP-specific item or a generic part. Perhaps even a similar item could be substituted? Another tablet battery that could fit the gap?
