HTC Droid Eris :: Phone Wont Wake Up / Way To Program Works?
Feb 10, 2010
My phone "eris" was in my back pocket for about an hour as I was Food shopping. When I took it out It would not come out of Lock screen / sleep state. The Only thing that brought it back to life was taking the battery out and replacing it several times. I did not Sit on the phone or bump it in anyway that might have caused this. Also, when I put it in my pocket, the screen was already locked. This has happened about 4 times in the last week and the phone is just past the 30 day window for a return. On a side note, I recently installed Beautiful Widgets Version 2.85 and have noticed the phone will not go to sleep. I even unchecked the notifications option and chose all the different weather refresh settings, but it still would not sleep. Is this a bug or just the way the program works? By the way, When I say sleep I don't mean clicking the "End" button and locking the screen, But the internal phone "awake time" as found under phone status.
I have 2.1 leaked version 3 on my Eris and have question regarding screen wake-up.I am usually using speaker phone while I am on conversation. And after 5-10 minutes, the screen goes to black.Sometimes, I want to turn off speaker phone or use phone to look up some numbers.However, pressing call button or track ball won't wake up the screen. If I press end call button, it just hung up.It seems that there is no way to wake up the screen except hanging up and call again.Anyone has same problem?
I know I'm comparing phones that are different, but the Blackberry has the option to turn off the phone, and 'wake up' right before the alarm goes off. This helps save battery life and keep from waking you up in case you get an email or text in the middle of the night. Is there any way the Eris has something comparable? I know there is an airplane mode - what is this? Any chance that's what I'm looking for?
I am thinking of purchasing this TP2 battery charger on ebay cuz i heard you can use the tp2 batteries in the eris.. has anyone used this before? HTC Touch Pro2 T7373 Pro 2 PRO II AT&T Battery Charger - eBay (item 320521593865 end time May-22-10 11:32:54 PDT)
Just did a factory reset to solve my Gmail and contact syncing issues, and now that the phone is all started up again, I keep getting a voice while doing the *228 option 1 that says "we are unable to program your phone at this time". Anyone have any ideas?
Ever since the latest OTA update, the 3G on my Eris just stops working when I wake it up. The 3G icon at the top tool bar disappears even though the Mobile Widget I have on one of my screens says that it's on. So what I have to do is toggle the Mobile Widget to turn 3G off then on again. But oh wait, sometimes the Mobile Widget doesn't even respond so I have to go to settings and turn off then on the 3G. This is really annoying and this happens with my aunt's Droid Eris too. Any ideas on what my aunt and I should do?
Since the Evo has a bug with activesync causing the phone to constantly reboot if you shut it off and turn it back on, is there another problem I can download to work with Exchange to replace the Android activesync program until its fixed?
Since 1.5 I've been having partial wake problems. My eris normally will last a few hours in airplane mode or with just wifi on before the battery drops one or two percent. Sometimes, it will drop like 5 percent in an hour with low battery usage occuring, for example, when airplane mode is on. I check spare parts under partial wake usage, and it is usually very high, sometimes 100% after hours. I have to reboot my phone to fix these problems.
I have a Sprint Galaxy 4. I understand that there is a google speak to text program already installed in the phone but I cannot find it. how to make it work?
Also, it is important to be that a [B]program not only reads the incoming texts but that I can respond to them handsfree via the Blue tooth speaker in my car. Can I do that with the google. program? If not, what is another good program to use?
My emails are showing up in the gmail app at sporadic intervals; sometimes they show up immediately while other times I only receive the email if I refresh within the app itself. I noticed this after I manually did the update last Friday on my Eris. Emails are showing up rather quickly on 3G, but hardly at all on wifi. I'm testing this by sending myself emails to the gmail account from a non-gmail account on the laptop. I saw over in the Moto Droid forum that some users there are experiencing gmail push slowness/problems.
I'm wondering how I can choose to wake up my phone without having to do the slider everytime or at all.I work at my home office 12 hours a day and my phone is on my desk always.I use it alot and put it down, then use it some more and back down again.I'd like to conserve battery and not set it to just "screen stay" aka never timeout because that just uses so much battery with the screen on.And using that slider over and over and over well you get the point.So how can I just set it to wake up on like touching the screen or something?
This has almost become a gag, if I hit the lock button or allow the screen to timeout while inside of a text message, when I awaken the screen for whatever reason and I do not immediately hit the home button the messaging app freezes and then force closes. This happens if I try to respond or go back to the msg list. Is anyone else experiencing this issue?
Password: 000000 I don't take responsibility for what happens to your phone when doing this nor do I know what half of this does. There are many different changeable fields and I REALLY don't recommend changing any. I wish I could just to play around but I don't want to fight Verizon again for a new phone.
I know I'm on ver2. But is it the root? When I downloaded it there was also a recovery that I did not use. Did that screw me for root? Or am I just thinking wrong? Do we know if someone is working on rooting the leak versions? I know a lot of questions. My phone works really well on ver2 and I am afraid to go to ver3 and get the crap everyone else is dealing with, but root would be nice. Now that I have had the time to learn about it and how it works.
Before i start i just want to say that this worked for me. i do not have multiple eri (plural of eris)to test this on.. so if you want to try it and post your results. i was just playing around with my phone and decided to turn sense off. i was playing around with it and then i decided to try youtube. it worked on every video that i tried (with different users and everything). some background info>> my youtube application has never really worked.. it used to be where i could just try the video a few times and after a few error messages it would work. but now, with sense off, it works perfectly. i just thought i would put that out there so that if youtube was that important to you (because i would rather sense than youtube) then you can turn sense off before you decide you need to file a "law suite".
I'm running 2.1v2 (non-root...=() and I've noticed over the past few days that the dialer app doesn't work all the time. On more than one occasion it will ring and when I answer the call, there's no sound, likewise when I place a call, it won't even ring. If it helps, here are the apps I've downloaded and installed:
Dialer One Handcent handyCalc xScope (the paid version) Barcode Scanner Compass Johnson Bubble Level Metal Detector
I've set my modem slot to 1 but it hasn't fixed the issue, I have disabled haptic feedback and cleared the call log (which is usually pretty empty anyways).
Is there a program application that I can download that will provide a better alert for 'voicemail'. The HTC Droid Eris gives me tiny symbol up at the top. I would like an alert that rings periodically. Any suggestions ?
