Summary: HP seems to have stopped supporting this system all together. I expected that there would be no new updates since I was only using this as a back up phone but the app store is completely non supported anymore. You can't even update the apps it comes with and the apps won't work unless you update them. Makes the whole thing pretty useless.
Summary: I bought this as a replacement because my android phone junked out on me and I get an upgrade in two months. So no need to buy anything fancy. It's a good little phone, but the webios phones are no longer supported by Hewlett Packard. So, in short, there are no updates and never will be again. The app store is lousy and it makes my wallet hurt to think I have to pay for a data package on this phone while using it.
Great Phone, Doesnt' Work Well With ATT Unlimited Data Plans

Summary: I've been a big fan of the Palm Pre Plus since it came out. The phone rocks, has an awesome interface and multitasking is phenomenal. I've got an old unlimited data plan on ATT and had a Palm Pre Plus (actually two of them) that worked just fine with the ATT unlimited data plan. I took this phone in to have it activated on my current data plan. ATT put in a new SIM chip and after struggling through the profile stuff at the start, it worked just fine.
This phone isn't as cool as it is cracked up to be.

Excerpt: This phone has a few cool features, but there are definitely many more cons than pros. The battery life is terrible, the internet is super slow, making it almost impossible to do anything on the web unless connected to WiFi. It comes with only a few ways to personalize your phone, the rest must be downloaded seperatly. For example: you must download a patch to switch the text messaging alert volume or to forward an email. These patches take forever to download.
Great concept, but need to work on phone and battery.

Excerpt: My husband and I got these phones when we signed up with the first provider that carried them. At first I was in love. I was able to sync my three email accounts, which automatically updated my phonebook and calendar. The phone would automatically update with necessary patches. We had to wait a couple of months for the video function. Who makes a phone these days without video? Anyhow, the phone stays smudged. The apps crap out all the time.
Summary: I've had my Palm Pre Plus for over a year now and just realized that I never wrote up a review on it. I'm honestly glad I waited this long as my love for the phone has diminished considerably since I got it back in December of 09. Pros first: -The phone gets great reception, although that probably has more to do with my carrier than the phone itself; -Fits comfortably in my hand and pocket; Not-so-good stuff: -Extremely short battery life.
Summary: I bought the Palm Pre because I had an upgrade available for my Verizon account. I tried to get a touch-screen phone without the huge, expensive data package, but there weren't any available. I received my Palm Pre in the mail and could not get it to work properly, so I went to the Verizon Store and had a representative order me a new one. The second phone I received started having sound problems within a month or so.
