I want to add a contact just to my phone and not to my gmail account.Whenever I start to add a contact (phone, 208544.menu, +contact, create new contact,) the next thing it forces me to do is to choose an account to create the new contact under and it lists my 3 gmail accounts.I have no option to just put it on the phone.Any ideas here?We do the same thing on the Incredible but it gives us the gmail account and the phone to choose from but not on the Motorola.
It's been awhile since I've done an update. I'm on Ult Droid 9.0.0. I noticed that there are no ROM Manager instructions for 9.8.0 but that states you have to do a wipe and clear cache prior to installing the update. Do you still do all this through the ROM manager? Or is there another way to install this that is "better"?
My name is Moondog and "I'm a tehno-phobic Moto Droid newbie"..Although the Droid is pretty easy on the basic stuff, I am sure that there is lots more I could do with the phone.I've read the online manual, but it doesn't get into much detail.Does anybody know where I could find more in-depth instructions?
I'm probably dim but I'm so mad with this phone I could throw it through the window!!It's so complicated. The best it seems to do is tell me the weather.God, I can look out of the window to do that!!Anyway,I put my SIM in and press the left thing like an arrow up.The instructions say then press People but I don't have anything that says People.Where the hell am I going wrong?Please can someone help me?I just want all my contacts on my phone.
I have home, home++, and GDE. In all three when I am trying to place a deleted shortcut in it does not even show up. For example in home++ I deleted camera thinking i wouldn't need it. Now i need it for screenshots how do I get that icon back on? Sorry for making a whole thread for this.
So i really like a lot of the new "blurless" roms, however i really miss the corporate email aspect of blur. IMHO the blur email app is significantly better than the AOSP. Does anyone know how i could be able to add this back to the "blurless" roms. I have the deodexed apk archive that i got from somehwere, i've tried just installing the apk's that i feel would be required, i.e. blurservices, bluremail,etc. but i always get an "application not installed" error. i've even placed them in the /system/app folder and corrected the permissions with no success. Does anyone have any experience in adding blur back to your phone that might be able to help me out?
Well i am new to the droid only had it for about a month. Just wondering how do you add home screens i have the home++ and the Panda and they both only have three. I am looking for more so sorry if this has been discussed before just a new be ha
It seems like I am just missing something obvious. I receive an SMS or incoming call from someone's new cell. I want to update an existing contact. I long press the number click add to contacts, but when I chose a contact it doesn't include the number. I end up writing the number down and then updating it manually. Sorry if this is a repeat post but the words are just too common I wasn't able to find anything. Everyone seems to just add to contacts with those steps but I'm just not getting the numbers I inputted anywhere.
I'd like to start getting my music and pictures etc., on my Wildfire. I've got an 8gb micro-SD card. Question is how does the phone read the card? Do I have to set up folders on the card such as Music, Photos, Videos etc., or do I just pile all my files on the card and the phone then sorts out what's what?
I have the Droid Incredible and want to add some MP3s to it. Which folder do I drag and drop to from my computer? Can I just make a folder and call it MP3? Also, does the droid know the difference between music and podcast?
Can you make a folder within the Apps screen that you pull up? I woild like for instance make a folder called Games and put all the games in this folder to clean up the App Screen a bit. I downloaded App Organizer, but it only seems to put a filder on 1 of the 3 front screens?
OK so I used the Droid 2 method of rooting and I am rooted successfully, my question is I want to start adding themes but I am unsure how? Can I download TEAM BLACK HAT to achieve this and if so what are some cool themes to use? also can I go back to the original theme at any time?
I have searched the Android store, and also searched these forums but maybe some more advanced Droid users can help me find an answer.
As with the iphone, inputting a new phone number within seconds is rather difficult on the Droid. That got me wondering if there were any third party apps or at least a way through the device OS that will let me quickly add a new contact. So far as I can tell the quickest way is to hit Phone--> input # --->option key---> add to contacts ---> Create new contact. That is 6 steps just to take someone's number! There's got to be a better way.
My Droid and the Eris I could put a 2sec pause so my password would automatically input every time. is there a way to do this on the X i tried to input it under contact edit and on settings screen with no luck.Any ideas or walk-through?
I use Gmail for my email, but I find the Email app is easier to use. There is also a Messaging app, but that incorporates texting, etc. I don't want that. I just can't figure out how to add multiple email accounts under the Email app. Under email settings I see where it says default mail account and it shows both of my account, but the front screen doesn't show both accounts?
I was so excited when LPP updated a while back and added the option for additional rows and columns....but it didn't resize things the way I wanted. I had hoped it would be tweeked and it seems better now but I'm still having an issue with Beautiful Widgets on the full size Home Weather. It doesn't fit the entire information completely with temp, etc. without pulling it down to fit across about 3 rows...which makes it look huge
Anyone else have this problem? Or should I just accept it and use the smaller Beautiful Home widget? And is there a way to resize the text size under the description of the app? I can remove it and kind of like it without it...but was curious if I'm missing something
I have an issue with using contacts on my droid. From within 'contacts' i hit the 'display options' then selecting the email account I see the drop down for system contact groups-friends, family, coworkers. I am wondering if there is any way to create additional contact types or groups? As in I have a specific group of contacts from one website I want to add to a group--can you create a contact type or contact group?? I can't find the option when adding a new contact or when within the display options as mentioned before.
I thought I would try to create a thread with short answers and links to instructions. I would like to keep this thread short. These are answers found on this forum not mine if you don't agree with them you can argue about it on the original threads. Feel free to add questions and answers/links. Please keep it short?.

I followed Caddyman's instructions on what to do if the Native SMS app was keeping my phone awake all the time. After rebooting and letting it sleep for 10 minutes, my phone is still at 100%. I just got it last night so I just have Weather Bug, Handcent SMS, Facebook, Gmail, and Peep installed. I've never had a smart phone so it's possible on of the other settings is keeping it awake, but I have no clue which it would be.
