From the sound of it all, there were no workaround required in getting the smartphone activated and working on Sprint’s network. And on top of that, it seems to be handling webOS 2.2.4 without any major glitches or problems. Rummaging through the handset...

The Verge recently posted a fantastic article on the rise and fall of Palm and webOS. It's definitely worth the read.

WebOS was great, but the build quality of the original Pre was a trainwreck... Customers hated that phone, Sprint was right not to release the sequel unfortunately.

Wow, did I enjoy my Palm Pre Plus while I had it. Yes, the hardware was a bit of a train wreck, but boy did WebOS make for an enjoyable experience. The funny part is the most loyal Palm customers were on Sprint, even as small eve of a community as it was.

What a waste.

For it's time the Palm Pre.. Atleast was ahead of it's time. Someone dropped the ball. Webos ahead of it's time.
