HTC Eris :: Triangle About Service Bars

Nov 29, 2010

My eris was having issues (scrolling to the left by itself and not scrolling back, shutting off, force closing everything, etc) so i took it into verizon and even the guy working there got frustrated so he did a factory reset (i think thats what you call it) and once it was FINALLY done he came out and said that my phone still had its problems. Once I learned that verizon no longer has phones like the enV, voyager, etc i just left since mine could still answer phone calls and some stuff on a good day, or so i thought. Once i got home and looked at my phone and it was done loading I noticed there was a triangle above my service bars and my phone has no connection to anything except wi-fi even though it has 2 bars of service. Sorry i'm not very good at explaining, but any help is great. I just want to know how to be able to re-connect it so i can at least make calls or send texts.

HTC Hero :: Icon - Above The Bars There Is A Triangle

May 2, 2010

I have a weird icon on my HTC Hero that I have never seen before. Above the bars there is a triangle. The Hero manual does not address this icon. It seems to be completely undocumented. Although the manual says that an "R" in this area means your phone is in "roam mode", I believe my phone uses a triangle instead. In any case, my phone says that it is in digital roam mode. I have no idea why it seems to be stuck in this mode. I have rebooted it several times and, each time, it always goes into digital roam mode.

HTC Droid Eris :: How Do Little Triangle Make Stay?

Dec 16, 2009

On one of the home screens or scenes, whatever, i had put the 30 day month view HTC calendar widget. it synced with the Google calendar just fine and there was a little triangle in the upper left corner of the box for the days that had an event. however, they only stay once i reload the widget. and after a little while they go away, but if i pick a day, my events are still there. i really like that the little triangle. how do i make it stay? is there another app or widget that will allow a full month view with the little triangle or similar mark for days with events?

HTC Droid Eris :: Signal Issue - Never Get More Than 2 Bars

May 26, 2010

No matter where I am I NEVER get more than 2 bars and more often than not, there's only 1 bar! Really? I'm not convinced it is only cosmetic. I seem to get most of my calls, but occasionally they go through to voicemail even though I've got the phone right next to me. It is so frustrating to be in the house with no signal! I always had at least 3 signals in my house.

Has anyone contacted Verizon about this? It is the only thing bothering me from 2.1 upgrade. Other than that I find the phone is truly awesome, but it IS a phone! However, I'm afraid to call Verizon tech people who always seem to go through the basics without any real regard to your issue, and have the screw up the phone with some random setting they want to try.

HTC Droid Eris :: Signal Strength/Bars

Mar 21, 2010

Couldnt find my answer on the previous topics. But my phone on verizon hardly has full signal. Im running 2.1 on a brand new phone that i bought off a guy from craigslist. It seems my signal is only 1 to 2 bars most of the time, giving me around -86dbm. Sometimes it will be 3 bars, then it drops to one or none. Wondering if this is killing my battery too. Is there some update that fixes this? Or some test to perform if whats happeneing is normal or what?

HTC Droid Eris :: Signal Bars After Update

Dec 14, 2009

Really interested to find out if in fact the fluctuating signal bars (and numeric value in settings) are fixed or not. I'm reading various things. Dealbreaker for me if it's not. I realize it's a UI issue only but how would I know the real signal strength if I'm say traveling and outside my usual comfort zone as to known coverage?

HTC Droid Eris :: When Cover The Side Signal Bars Seem To Go Down

Mar 10, 2010

So my virgin mobile phone that I had a while ago had this same problem, but less severe. I had fluctuations in the signal strength. Cover the side of the phone and the signal will go down, uncover, signal goes up.

Basically what I found, or in this case hypothesize, is that the internal antenna may be somewhere on one of the sides of the phone. When you cover the side the signal bars seem to go down. Hold the phone on the top corner and they may go back up. I've done this in a few places around my usual usage areas and all seem to follow this trend. Im not saying that correlation leads to causation, but im just saying maybe we're overlooking something here. This usually happens on the right side. However, I am puzzled that this would mean flesh interferes with radio waves...Also, I'm not complaining or questioning why as I've read several other threads on this issue and side with those who think the bars mean nothing. I've been able to make perfectly good phone calls with 0 bars, no dropped calls, and perfect sound quality.

HTC Droid Eris :: Red Triangle / Exclamation Point Show Rooting Attempt?

Jul 9, 2010

Sometimes when I reboot my phone, I first see the 3 androids on skateboards and then it goes to a pic of phone with the red exclamation point in a triangle (same as the failed recovery error). I can pull my battery but that does not help. My phone is useless for at least 30-45 minutes. I have pulled my battery up to 20 consecutive times to fix with no avail.

The variables: This is a refurb phone with 2.1 pre-installed. I have tried to root my phone with the whole timing trick, pull card, insert card. This was done a week or two ago. I do not have that file on my card, nor was my rooting successful. I am thinking that my problem is due to the refurb. My dialer lag is way worse than my previous phone. I can make one phone call every hour or so and I can forget calling someone right back if I missed their call. Does the red triangle/exclamation point show an attempt at rooting?

HTC Droid Eris :: Signal Bars Grayed Out - Applications Force Closes

Jan 27, 2010

This has happened to me three times since getting my phone a little over a month ago. The four signal bars at the top go gray and an 'X' appears over the top of them. After this happens, all of my applications force close. The first time this happened, I took my phone to Verizon and they said they have never seen or heard of this happening so they just swapped out my phone for a brand new one. This worked for a day, until the same thing happened. Instead of waiting in line at Verizon for 3 hours again, I called customer service. The lady said it could be from an app. So I just decided to do a hard reset on my phone. It has worked for about 2 weeks and now its at it again.

HTC Droid Eris :: No Service - Signal At All

Aug 19, 2010

For the past two days, I've had no service. I was using xtrROM4 when it first started. So I went back to EvilEris and it worked for a little while, then yesterday stopped working again. So I re-flashed xtrROM4 and it worked all night and this morning. Now it's gone again. Can't make a call, send a text, get online, nothing.

I'm at work, and I never had the 'best' signal, but I'd go by a window and be fine. Now nothing, no matter where I go.

HTC Droid Eris :: Factory Reset And Now I Have No Service

Apr 19, 2010

So, I was one of the people with an Eris that was not receiving MMS messages anymore. Because of this I decided to do a factory reset at the suggestion of some users with the same problem and now that I have done one I no longer have service. I was able to download stuff from the marketplace, but no calls or texts. Whenever I make a phone call it says "welcome to verizon wireless, your service has been temporarily disconnected, please call your customer service representative." I have done *228 to reprogram and activate, I have done it to update roaming, and I pushed 3 and activated the phone again but said it was already active.

HTC Droid Eris :: Page Plus Cellular Service?

I've looked around and haven't found a whole lot about Page Plus. But from what I can gather, they use the Verizon network, and you can use any (or most?) Verizon phone....like the Eris. And the reviews seem to be pretty positive.Anyone have any experience with Page Plus?cause their plans are cheap....much cheaper than Verizon.

HTC EVO 4G :: PRL To FORCE ROAMING With And Without Triangle?

Jul 27, 2010

I been searching to force my phone to roam since purchasing my EVO June 4th. I even returned a Hero at one point because it couldnt force roaming...At that time.(seen a hack recently) I did come across the this post by Technofile over in the XDA forum [6/16]*techknowfile's* - Hack the HTC EVO - 3G w/o Sprint EVDO coverage! - xda-developers

I tried this and although it DID allow me to roam on Verizons Network I still didnt have any bars at work, no triangle and the signal was still low. I believe he had listed this Corolada PRL Page for older PRLS and I also found these PRLS for anyone looking to reverse back to a better Sprint PRL after they updated a more current version http://cid-eabe29f3770d8d15.skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/.Public/PRLs...........

HTC Droid Eris :: Phone Recently Stopped Getting 3G Service

Jan 6, 2010

My Eris recently stopped getting 3G (or even 1x) service. When I try turning mobile network on it takes a long time like its searching then says it is on but when you go into "about phone" and look at mobile network it says it is not connected and there is no 3G or 1x display in the status bar. I am currently at school in the bay area and it worked for the first few days I was here, not sure exactly when it stopped cuz I mostly use wireless but noticed it when I wanted to do something off wireless. Pretty sure it is not a coverage issue because my friend with a moto droid gets 3G and it is almost as fast as his wireless connection at full bars. Also now I cant send or receive MMS due to this (apparently cant transmit over WiFi or voice signal), making my smart phone less useful than a dumb phone.

HTC Droid :: Eris Wifi Working Without Mobile Service

Jan 7, 2010

This is news to me and I figured i would share it with my fellow Droiders. I just switched from the Eris to the Moto Droid. I figured switching would render my Eris usless because when starting up the Moto Droid, I had to go through an update orientation and had to connect the phone to a number before getting a chance to view the hoem screen. However, my Eris still works. I can not make phone calls, but I can still use it with the Wifi in my house and can play the music that is stored on the memory card. It is like an Eris Touch. I can also still get apps from the Market and update existing apps.

HTC Eris :: Error - Message Saying Number Is No Longer In Service

Or when I try to text my phone gives me an error of class 255 cause 3. Now this person can send me texts just fine but for some reason my phone will not send anything to them.

I've uninstalled the app. reinstalled and unblocked again. done a naand restore, wipe, and everything I can think of. I just don't get why my phone is doing this.

General :: LG Optimus G Recovery Red Triangle?

Jul 7, 2013

I cannot get into my recovery. Alright so i bricked my AT&T lg optimus g after trying to delete some bloatware after rooting my phone. I unbricked it by using LGNPST and got stock android 4.1.2. My software version is E97020j. The phone works perfectly fine but i cant get into recovery and i want to flash some custom roms. I can root my phone perfectly fine. The only way ive seen that unlocks the bootloader of the optimus g is a program called project freegee. When i try it, it tries to reboot into my recovery and bricks my phone. Then i have to use LGNPST again.

Ive used apps like clockwork mod manager and it says i already have TWRP and Clockworkmod recovery installed but it wont reboot into any of them. It just comes up to a black screen and says "Secure boot error, cause: boot certification verify." Ive tried getting into recovery using adb on my computer and using the old hold power button and up volume button method but nothing has worked. I cant find online how to get my old stock recovery image or how to fix the red triangle and i dont know how to uninstall TWRP and Clockworkmod. The methods for other phones doesnt work on mine.

Development Eris :: Operate Wifi While Having Text Service Turned Off?

Jan 11, 2010

Is it possible to operate the wifi on an eris while having the phone/text service turned off (airplane mode)? My home is the only place that I don't get voice/text signal and if I leave my phone on it drains the battery searching for signal. I typically leave the phone in airplane mode while in the house and occasionally turn the airplane mode off to pick up the wifi and check email. Is there anyway to have the wifi operate continuously to notify me of emails, but have the voice/text service off to conserve battery?
