    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. :rolleyes:


    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.
