I read somewhere that the mobile hotspot doesn't like apple products but they should still work but slooooooowly. Regardless the ipad is another apple product made to keep people fat. Don't get me wrong I have no problem with apple the iPhone etc. But the doucebag levels are going to rise to a whole new high. It's bad enough there are 12 year olds with faux hawks ranting about talking on the phone while searching the web but this ipad is going to make it soooo much worse.
 
Rated Very Satisfied

I am not adding much beyond what others have said, but I am in love with this phone.

Having used an IPhone and Droid (which I returned) before, I can't help but gush about WebOS. I don't know if I will ever be able to work with any other Phone OS. The usability and the customizability of webOS (including the Homebrew Apps and Patches from PreCentral) is impressive and addicting.

In fact, I wish my Mac and Win 7 machines had some elements of the user interface. The speed with which I can multitask on this phone is something I cannot probably do elsewhere. For example, I recently timed myself refreshing two mail accounts (and viewing the two inboxes), switching between three Slacker radio channels, updating the calendar with an event's time, and posting a "Hello" message to a contact (after scrolling to it), all in 7 seconds.

The only two things I miss from iPhone/Android are the Autofocus in the camera, and the integration of all Google Services seamlessly, the latter of which I hope becomes available to webOS sometime soon.

Do some research before posting :eek:

I have, maybe I haven't read what you did (though I wouldn't know because the meaning of what you originally said got lost in your most recent and oh so insightful post), but I have both read about and tested Apple products with the Pre Plus. I've used both my iPhone 3G and iPod Touch with my Pre Plus, and they worked perfectly. I've read a few comments about the iPhone having a huge speed handicap when used with the Pre Plus, but I've read a lot more comments from people who haven't had an issue. Not to say that there aren't a lot out there as I haven't gone searching, but I haven't seen many. Below is a link to an article that describes a relationship between a Pre Plus and an iPad, and it isn't a Chris Brown/Rihanna situation.

Now, regarding your original post, I thought you meant Apple and Palm needed to play nice on a corporate level - which is why I said what I said. Now I realize that you meant on a device-by-device basis, but would it really kill you to proof-read? Anyway, that's all I'm going to say about it; the thread has been made a sticky and I'm not going to derail it with an argument.

I read that "review" , if you read the forums here and elsewhere, that was just a fluff piece. I understand fanboi. I typed my posts on the Pre, I got tired of correcting, sorry about the grammer :cool:
I got the Pre for one reason, Mobile Hotspot, to drop the MiFi. My work is embracing the Ipad in a big way.
Bottom line I dropped the phone off at Fedex today. Back to my MiFi :disappoin

I think the word you're looking for is hipster ;)
 
I love my Pre now.....

At first i hated this phone i couldn't do anything at all....... but i discovered Preware and OMG i love it , i have my pre running @ 800mhz and changed theme on it , now i can say that you can customize to what ever you want cvery cool stuff.
 
I went from the Pre to Droid. Now, thinking about going back to my Pre Plus. 2 things are keeping me from switching back. 1st, is there a way on the calendar month view to have it show text on the month view? On my Droid, I was able to install a calendar program that I could see most of the things scheduled (the text) on month view.
And 2nd, back when I had the Pre, there didn't seem to be many good free programs to install unlike the Droid. Has that changed? But I will say, I did then and now know nothing about Homebrew Apps.
 
Excuse the ignorance

I am looking to pick up one of these used. I don't have a lot of experience with Verizon and their data plans - which I do not have. I have a plain old voice minutes only plan. Will I be able to use the phone and tap into my home (or any other open network) wi-fi to surf the web like other phones -i.e. Motorola Cliq XT or Optimus T (I know both from T-Mobile -sorry, but that's all I can compare against -from family member)? I now only have a basic flip phone and need to know before the jump. Sorry for this so basic of questions.

You can use it on your home WiFi network but you are also required to have the smartphone data plan.
