    palm pre plus GSM and Straight Talk

    Has anyone tried to use the SIM card from Straight Talk's Nokia E71 in a Palm Pre Plus? I tried it in the Blackberry Torch, but lost some of the functionality due to the service books. I have it working with an Iphone 3G, but wondering about the Palm Pre Plus.

    Just speculating, as I'm outside the ST realm, but on the surface it seems like it ought to work. There's nothing special about the Palm Pre Plus, at least not on the level of a BlackBerry (no special servers/services). The phone will, early in the activation process (as it does with other carriers) try to access Palm/HP (over the cell data network) to set up a "Palm profile." Allow that, then you're set. This profile is just a tool you use to sync contacts and other items. It also basically keeps you as part of the Palm/HP "family" for notification of webOS updates. No drawbacks that I can see, except that it does "leak" data in doing its regular checks with the Palm/HP servers. You can turn cell data off and just turn it on when needed, or use Wi-Fi and it'll get what it needs that way.
