1. I don't think so.
2. Why would you want to? Didn't you buy the iPhone for the OS aswell? If you want blackberry / palm pre's OS why didn't you just buy one of them? :|

Just buy one of those if you like their crap so much. Anything else is impossible.

I don't think Blackberry or Palm software would work, but they're working on putting Linux on the iPhone

Uh, no.

They run different file systems and have different hardware...

Can/do Windows Mobile/WebOS even run on an ARM? If not, the architecture is completely different, making it doubly impossible.

Late last year, there was a group of people working hard to try to get linux and possible android running on the iPhone OS platform, but I haven't heard much about that lately.

Well the Blackbery or Palm Pre OS is never gonna run an iPhone. That should be obvious.


However, if you want the screen on your iPhone to resemble a Blackberry or Palm Pre there are themes for that.

Don't the Pre and 3GS use the same CPU?

I believe MacCiti has a theme for a Palm.
