Motorola Droid :: 3G/1x Switching Back / Forth Area?

Nov 16, 2009

I'm a noob to the whole smartphone with data thing. Is it normal for my phone to switch in and out of 3G in an area that the verizon map shows as being a 3G area? At home I seem to stay on the 3G fairly constantly, but at work (which is at the edge of coverage) and especially while driving I seem to drop 3G quite a bit. It makes playing Slacker in the car not worth while. Just wondering if this is "just the way it is" or if I may have an issue.

Motorola :: Switching Back To Swype 2.1 From 2.2 On Droid X?

Sep 14, 2010

I had updated my DX to 2.2 a few weeks ago without rooting and DESPISE the new Swype keyboard in 2.2. It's smaller, white, and doesn't seem to work as well as the one installed on 2.1 on the DX which is black and seemed to have bigger keys to Swype to on the keyboard. How can I revert back to the old Swype keyboard that I had on 2.1 but keep 2.2 installed? I was told to move the Swype.apk file from 2.1 to the system/app directory in addition to the old lib file to the lib directory and then reboot the phone. The only problem is when I try to paste those files over, it won't let me. I'm guessing I need to be rooted to have access to those directories? What's the easiest way to root a 2.2 Droid X? Also, I was told the files need to be given special permissions. Is there an easier way to install the Swype from the DX running 2.1 onto a DX running the first leak of 2.2 for the DX?

Motorola Droid X :: Switching Back To Previous Call?

Aug 12, 2010

There is a "switch calls" button when I answer a call on call waiting, but is there any way to switch to the previous call, hang up, and come back to the new call? I tested it today and I hung up on everybody.

Motorola Droid X :: Switching Back To In Call Once You Leave?

Jul 27, 2010

If I am on a call and leave the dialer area to search for something, is there a way to get back to the phone menu that offers mute/end call/speaker an so on? I hit dialer to get back but it just shows the dialer and none of those options. I have to wait for the other person to hang up first to even end the call. So far this is happens to me with dialer one,stock dialer and takephone.

Motorola Droid :: Verizon's Return Policy / Switching Back From Eris

Dec 4, 2009

I bought the eris almost a month ago so my 30 day return policy is getting close. I like the eris a lot, mostly because of it's size and the senseUI, but a part of me yearns for the larger, sharper display of the moto droid. Now, I've noticed my eris is starting to chug slowly to do things like typing, changing apps and I'm not sure if it's just because I'm running a bunch of stuff at once or what, but its making me feel like I'd rather have the powerful processor of the droid as well.But, what if I get the droid and decide that I liked the eris better. Will I be stuck with the droid or can I return it and go back to the eris? I guess what I'm really looking for is an explanation of verizon's return policy and perhaps some feedback from those of you who switched from eris to droid.

HTC Droid Eris :: Switching Back From Google Voice

Jul 10, 2010

Don't burn me at the stake, but I want to switch back from Google Voice, but when I switch to carrier voicemail, it asks for a voicemail number, which I assumed was my phone number, but when I enter that, calling voicemail just goes to voicemail, as if someone called me. My reason for switching is because the SMS feature is about 25% accurate and when I turned that off, I stopped getting sotifications that I had received a Voicemail.

Motorola Droid X : Back Button Functionality - Cannot Simply Go Back One Menu Using The Back Key

Jul 15, 2010

This is my first android device and i'm loving it... but one thing that irks me is the use, or lack thereof, of the back button.

As I am navigating menus and options in the Settings, I cannot simply go back one menu using the back key. For example, if I go to Settings->Battery Manager->Battery Profile Options and want to go back to the Settings screen, I cannot.

Pushing the back button does nothing and I can only go back to the Settings menu by going Home, then re-entering.

Another quirk regarding the back button is when reading emails. Using a regular email account such as Hotmail, I cannot simply read an email and go back to the inbox using the button.

It makes navigating the phone very tedious.

Motorola Droid :: GPS Always On Notification Area / Cause Of This - Shut It Off?

May 18, 2010

The GPS icon is now always on my notification area. This has only been happening for the past couple of days. Previously, it would come on when in use (e.g. using Google Maps or some other application that was using the GPS) and then would disappear when the application terminated.

I used Taskiller to terminate all running applications, but the GPS icon was still on after I killed ALL of the running applications. So, I'm assuming that it's not because of a new, or updated, application I installed.

It doesn't appear to be causing any problems, but wonder if it's really on and draining the battery more than necessary. Also, it was a reminder to me that I'd left an application running that was using the GPS.

Is anyone else seeing this?

Android :: Locale - Not Switching Back To Defaults

Dec 1, 2008

new to Android, G1 and the forums Wondered if any of you can help?
I have 4 things set up in locale
1) turn on silent when at work
2) turn on Wi-fi when at home
3) turn on silent 6:30PM to 7:30PM (when getting my son to bed)
4) turn on silent 11PM to 8AM (so no emails are waking me!) number 2 works fine, the problem however is with the silent ones, ALL of them never go back to the default (ringer at full volume) when the time is up or when I'm away from the location. any ideas? I don't have GPS on, but the distance from home to work is large so it can't think I'm still anywhere near there plus that won't affect the time related ones.

LG Ally :: Switching Back To Clockwork From Amon_RA?

Nov 10, 2010

I can't seem to figure out if it's possible to switch back to CWM from drelisdee's amon_ra custom recovery. I assumed it would be as simple as to "flash" recovery from within ROM manager, and it would switch back, but apparently I was wrong since I can't seem to get it to reboot into clockworkmod's recovery interface.

Anyone know of a 3g toggle widget on the market like the one on the incredible? I live in a horrible reception area and my dx gets hot and gets a lot of battery drain searching for 3g. I noticed my incredibles battery life improved vast amounts when I turned the 3g off when I'm not using data.

Motorola Droid :: Google Navigation Working In Area?

Jan 19, 2010

I'm on the outskirts of Houston. I was using a Garmin that was quite reliable. I started using the Google Navigation on the Droid and was instantly hooked. I love hearing the actual street names and running it in "satellite" mode, so I can see the actual buildings and scenery. However, over time, I've seen that it gets me to about 6 out of 10 destinations perfectly. The ones it misses are usually at least pretty close, but sometimes I really have to search and sometimes find that it overshot the location by a mile or so, or that the big loop that took ten minutes to complete could have been eliminated by just turning right at "x" and left at "y"...

Android :: Switching Activities Back / Need To Make GridView Again?

Sep 22, 2010

I'm starting on Android and got a beginner question on switching between multiple activities. I understand i can go between two activities by invoking an intent and then returning with setResult(). What I want to know is how to jump between multiple activities. Specifically I want to learn about the process life-cycle. I understand how every activity is started ar onCreated(), but I'm not sure how to implement onResume() or onRestart() when I want to come back. So basically I have 3 activities: Activity1, Activity2 and Anctivity3. I start with Activity1 and then invoke Activity2 with an Intent, and Activity2 invokes Activity3. Using buttons. Now I want to come back to Activity1 from Activity3. I do the same thing here too. Make an Intent and call startActivity(Activity1_Intent). But it gives a runtime error.I think I need to implement OnResume() or onRestart(), but I'm not sure how to do this. In onCreate() I make a gridView, so when I come back, do I need to make that gridView again? If anybody could give a small explanation of refer to a tutorial it would be great.

Motorola Droid X :: Unable To Deliver Re-send With Area Code

Jul 19, 2010

I have looked and looked for a solution to this problem and have not found one. I see others are having the same problem though.I have the Droid X I am using the messaging that the phone came with not an added app (I am on Verizon). When I try to reply to a text from my husband I get a message saying "unable to deliver. Please re-send with area code". He is in my address book with an area code and the callback number has the area code. But next to his name it does not have the area code (again, it is entered in my phone with an area code). I have tried to delete his phone number, text my phone with his phone, and reply, but that still does not work. It is so frustrating and weird. Even when I do not have him in the address book the call back number (shown as cb#) has the area code, but up higher when his name would be does not have the area code.

Motorola Droid :: Way To Install Theme / Hide Notification Area?

Dec 27, 2009

Just a quick question, is there a way, with out installing a theme or Home replacement, to remove the text under the icons, so its just an icon only? also, is there a way to hide the notification area? I thought it would be cool to tap the screen once, and have the batter/time/date/notification area drop down from the top like how it is right now with the stock version, then tap the screen again and it hides the notification area. Wouldn't that be cool? Any way to do this or does something do this already?

HTC Incredible :: Switching Back To Verizon Voicemail From Google Voice

Jul 12, 2010

I was having some issues with Google Voice (people saying that they didn't always get my voicemail or sometimes it was some automated thing instead of my Google Voice message). I can't afford not getting my voice messages so I want to switch back. However, now whenever I get a voicemail it shows up in my notification bar and I click on the notification and it automatically calls a google voice number. However, when I enter my pin it says I have no messages. So I'm assuming they are on my Verizon Voicemail. But I can't get to them. I finally figured out that in settings you have to then go to the Call menu and change the Voicemail Service back to "My carrier" from Google Voice. But then the Voicemail Number stills shows as the google voice number.What is the number to change it to for Verizon Voicemail? Will that take care of it and allow me to check the 3 unheard messages and then get all of my messages from here on out?

Motorola Droid X :: Switching To X

Aug 21, 2010

I just convinced Verizon to send me an X to replace my second Inc due to horrendous voice quality issues. Hopefully this switch works out because I was very impressed with the unit I tested a few weeks ago.Anyway, there's 2 questions I need answers for and was hoping someone could help me out.

1) Is the standard battery good enough to get through a days usage with heavy call volume? My phone is for business purposes and I'm on it a lot....several hours each day. My Inc never makes it through the day. Do I need an extended battery or will the OEM unit be fine?

2) When using the GPS, does the voice prompt switch over to your BT headset if you're in a call? I LOVE Google Maps, but the voice prompts come through my headset during a call and are extremely loud and distracting. Does the X do this as well? If not, I might be able to return the Garmin that I just bought (and hate) and go back to using the amazing Google Maps again.
