Re: okay i bought the pre...now what do i do?

No need to root your phone. Get webos quick install from precentral.net. Install it on your computer. Put your pre in dev mode by typing upupdowndownleftrightleftrightbastart on your pre. Connect via to computer via usb. Select just charge on the pre.
Open quick install...The 3rd button on the right...push it. Select all feeds. Install the package manager first. Then preware.

Disconnect the pre. Turn off dev mode by typing in upupdowndownleftrightleftrightbastart

Then open preware on the pre and have fun!

For webos quick install, the phone will need to be in dev mode. But you only really need webos quick install to install preware for the first time. After that... all tweaks and themes can be done through preware ON THE PHONE.

With preware, the phone DOES NOT need to be in dev mode. There is also a tweak in preware for an icon so that dev mode is easier to get to then the code.

yeah i mean it still has the feel of android which i also digg. this thing is as good as an iphone or hero as far as im concerned. i got a great deal on the pre new and im glad i took the offer. ill probably keep this for quite awhile.

i do wish the battery life was a bit better but honestly it's not much worse than my vogue was running a custom 6.5 rom.

Re: okay i bought the pre...now what do i do?

the best decision i made was the seidio 2600 mAh extended battery.. def made my pre easier to type and hold on to.. and the extra juice it awesome.. added alittle girth to it. but now its solid...
