Verizon Palm Pre Plus Experiencing Problems?
Verizon hasn’t had the webOS toting Palm Pre Plus on their network for too long but it appears the smartphone is already experiencing a couple of issues as precentral reports on GPS and WiFI issues.
Apparently there have been several reports of that when users of the Verizon Palm Pre Plus use WiFi they are unable to send an MMS message, which appears needs to be sent via Verizon’s EVDO, an issue the Sprint Palm Pre hasn’t had thus far. The easy workaround is of course simply to turn off WiFi before sending the MSS.
Another issue being experienced and is looking like becoming a serious one is GPS, the issue being full tower assisted AGPS only works with Verizon Navigator and no other application, which is leading people to believe Verizon is locking it down.
However they say that this may not be the case as the Verizon Palm Pixi Plus can gain quick access to GPS locks. Apparently the quick workaround for the problem is to open Verizon Navigator before using GPS on other applications.
