    Is there a way to add Wikipedia to the Google Search option?

    I too am missing the ability to just pull down my damn keyboard and start typing.

    Have you tried Swype3 beta? I prefer it to Swiftkey.

    After 2 years (I feel like such a D-Bag ) with the Pre- you couldn't drag this EVO 3D away from me with a team of Clydesdales.

    P.S. Sure am glad I didn't get the Nexus S 4G.

    I had a pre- since Aug 09 and even a Pre2 the last few months, but I hopped to the Evo 3D on Friday.

    I do miss the physical keyboard. Texting has become slightly annoying. Using the swiftkey X beta keyboard, hoping it will grow on me.

    I miss being able to swipe away individual notifications instead of just tapping "Clear".

    Of course I miss the cards, but "Perfect Task Switcher" has made it better.

    As for your texting app, go download "Go SMS Pro". It's pretty impressive on every level.

    The Sprint TeleNav is also a LOT better than on the Pre.

    If you are used to just typing the persons name, add "Call History" to the search settings. Helps a lot.

    Also if you've been using Neato!, go check out "Chrome to Phone". Not as feature rich, but pretty much the same and for free.


    Just a few observations from the last two days. Lovin the phone so far.

    Not sure if this question has already been posted or not, haven't taken the time out to review every single one in this thread, so forgive me if it has. Are there any possibility of transfering all ( or even most ) of my sms text messages from palm pre over to my EVO 3d? I've done some research on this ( mostly google ), but so far its not looking promising. Figured ill give this forum a shot. Thanks!

    My other gripe has to do with Google Music...
    For the "lack of synergy", can you explain that a little? I think that Android Sync does everything that does.

    Android can automatcially sync Exchange, Facebook, Flickr, LinkedIn, Twitter, and other accounts into your Calendar and Contacts. As friendsupdate their email addresses, birthdays, phone numbers, events, photos, and status, your phone is automatically updated.

    Are you talking about Outlook Sync? Are you using to keep your Google Calendar (used in Android) synced with your Outlook calendar. and can sync Outlook contacts, calendar, notes, tasks, with Google (Android). I use CompanionLink.

    For Exchange, everyone loves Touchdown. Just add it into your sync.

    For music, I prefer • • .

    I can confirm. I had a day one Pre, I was on my 3rd a year later when I got the EVO. One Evo survived the year to 3VO.

    I really did love WebOS, and will miss some of it's features. But weak hardware and little support from developers made it hard to stick with it.

    I've been using a Palm branded usb cord that came with my Pre on my EVO & 3VO with no problems. I'm sure they all function the same.

    Well, you can't really just type on the Pre because you still have to pull out the keyboard and Android you have to hit the search button.

    Yes, download the app and it will be there...some apps you download will make themselves available in the search for you to select as a search option.

    Wikipedia: let's you include Wikipedia in your search results. Also see .

    For more, see the Getting Started section on Applications.

    Also forgetting on this phone: hit the power button, unlock with the ring, then hitting search. To me, and I'm sure a lot of other Pre users, it doesn't feel as convenient. I'm not really knocking it, it's just quite a bit different than what we're used to.

    Is there any way to "unhide" the passwords for email accounts on the palm pre? If not, when I switch phones, I will lose access to that email as that phone is the only place I have the password stored.

    Any help would be apreciated..
    I think you'd have better luck asking this question on PreCentral, or contact whoever you have the email account with. I'm sure they'd have some way of resetting your password (after you prove your identity to them!)

I don't know why people cling to any platform, especially webOS, it will take HP YEARS to catch up to what is available today on iOS, Android and WPmango.
    I'm with you Vick - Launch day Pre owner who was holding on and finally realized that it was way past time to move on. My son got an EVO 4G a couple of months ago and I was pretty impressed. Now with the 3D, I gotta do it. I'll be at my Sprint store tomorrow when they open to upgrade to a 3D

    My thinking is that two years down the road, either webOS will have fulfilled its potential and I may switch back, or I'll stay with another great OS, Android.

    If you buy a phone with a slide-out keyboard like the Epic or EVO Shift, then you can just slide out the keyboard to turn on the phone and then just type.

    If you buy a phone that does not have a slide-out keyboard, you can't slide out the keyboard.

    Would that make the phone light up showing that there's a message? I don't want pop-up intrusive notifications while USING the phone though.

    It should light up for all messages, check your setting if you haven't already.

    Which settings menu would that be under? I checked "display" and "privacy" and nothing like that. The lock screen "display text" box is checked.
