    Duno if its age or buggyness but the Palm Pre were are using is finally starting to get bogged down and do weird things ....

    Today I realized the L on the keyboard is not responding as well as I like which is a problem, also the screen has become very laggy with the card system, and the battery well for a year its been great, the last week or so by 5pm its completely dead -

    Needless to say can't wait for the EVO already - :D

    Well if I were your husband and I knew you were throwing me out for a bigger and better model, I would not be very nice to you either:D

    Be nice to your old phones they know your deepest darkest secrets:rolleyes:

    Whenever I have replaced a desktop this past 15 years, the old one always started to do same. They just know what is up.

    Yeah I guess the Pre knows in a week its meeting its fate - :eek:

    To clear things up a bit (which I am really hoping does not happen with the EVO) is that we have been through 3 Pre's in the years time since launch, not bad compared to others but still annoying ...

    I stopped by an out of the way RS today while visiting some stores around the area and they were completely useless on the EVO, the darn guy couldn't even find the dummy EVO, but pointed me to the dummy HD2 which was non-working which was pointless, :(

    Good by diamond. I am shocked I am buying another htc phone, but the reviews and promise are too good to pass up.

    Just for you, I'm going to take my EVO in my hand right now and rub it all over my body. Oh yes.

    Violating the EVO is against forum rules, lol .... :eek:

    I too never thought we would be buying another HTC product ever since the HORRIBLE original HTC SPRINT TOUCH - wow was that the worst phone ever!

    I'm on my 6th Pre. If this one wasn't going bye bye Friday I'd be getting a 7th.
    Mine is doing so much crazy stuff I can't even list them. It's pretty sad ): I loved my Pre.

    The Pre was great for awhile but every month my wife owns it, it gets worse and worse and worse. It's a piece of crap ok i said it and we are both getting a EVO. I am also saying bye to my droid.

    This is like planning to ditch your current lover for a newer, younger one. As soon as you start thinking it, you'll begin to find flaws and come up with reasons to justify leaving her for a newer girl ;P

    No, My phone is really falling apart. It's making me want the to leave it for the "younger girl".

    I swear my Tour knows something is up. I swear to you all (scout's honor) that since the day I preordered my EVO at BB, my Tour has dropped EVERY call I have made while at home that lasted over 5 minutes. And when I'm laying in bed, the EVDO connection is so slow that I reluctantly pull out my iPod touch to use the wifi at home. This Tour is getting retired in just a few days (but please, please don't tell the phone...I think it's watching me)

    I got the Touch Pro and was so excited. I went straight to BB after i got out of work and bought it. Thought it was an awesome phone but it was to laggy and i swore i would never buy another HTC again. I had a BB Curve 8530 n just sold it yesterday and switched to a diamond which lags as much as the TP did. I want the EVO already!

    Just doctor your Pre. It may clear up some of your issues. Look up webosdoctor if you don't know what I'm talking about. Good luck, just a week to go! :)

    I've doctored and full erased my Pre 3x.
    It's the 1.4.x update. My wife's Pixi has some of the same problems.
    1.5 will fix all the problems the day after the Evo is launched :)
