Lately I have noticed that when I go to use the web browser on my droid the browser hangs and I get a page cannot be viewed message. I always assumed it was the browser as the vpn to work is still connected. I recently downloaded weather bug and have noticed that when I can't view a web page I also loose all weather access. (vpn still shows connected) If I shut down my phone and restart it things work great.
Ever since the 2.1 OTA update that I received back in July, my phone has been burning through the battery quickly and places that I usually get a 3G signal I now get no signal and the big X in the signal bar.
when I opened Handcent SMS on my phone, it came up with a white screen that I had assumed was just a bug, but after sending a text message,I realized that all of my previous messages had been lost or deleted for some reason. Absolutely nothing happened between last night and this morning that would have led me to expect such a result, and as you can imagine I'm pretty upset about the data loss. If you have any suggestions for steps to take, I would sincerely appreciate them. My phone is not rooted or anything of the sort if that changes anything. Also, I've been using SMS backup to back up to my gmail, but there are some longer texts that Handcent converts to MMS that were not backed up.
i rooted a few days ago...(moto droid), my wife has the same phone unrooted, i put each phone in each hand and hers has full bars ...i only have 1...is there a way to fix this...is there a rom that is better for servive?... (i have the frg22).
I did a factory reset 2 weeks ago, because when I uninstalled launcher pro, my dx went black. reboots did not help. Since that factory reset, everything has appeared to be fine though. I just read the big read stickied warning, and figured I better ask about the potential issue.
I've had unaccountable SD card memory loss since the update. Is it the upgrade or one of the apps I've downloaded since then. It seems to happen when I use picsaypro and an online animator even if I don't save anything.
I bought one of the $4 batteries from Amazon. I dropped the Droid from several low levels at several angles and it never rebooted. Clearly the original battery was just slightly smaller dimensionally to allow a brief but significant loss of contact with the Droid. Verizon did send me a "refurb" but I send it back with a note that it was unacceptable to send a phone which at one time had someone else's problems in it as a replacement. I'm so very glad I did.
Several Droid users have reported that my app's entire database just destroys itself randomly after a few days or so. This seems to be specific to the Droid. I'm at a loss. My app has a service that runs in the background to display notifications, it also supports widgets. Both of those (and the app itself, of course) access the database, and I marked every accessor to the database "synchronized", just in case. Any remote idea what could cause the entire database to just vanish?
My wife has a bone stock Droid.. Nothings rooted ed, modded or anything. Can she use it to get online on her laptop? I know with my EVO, I had to root it to get wireless. She just has a month unlimited data. Does that work or will I have to do pdanet/easy tether or a wifi hack on the phone for her? She is leaving today for a trip and seems to think its just going to work because the phone says wifi on it.
I'm sitting next to my girlfriend in class right now and we both attempt to look at our internet banking. I was able to pull mine up, then hers up before her banking home page would even load. I tried the google homepage and it seems to take even longer than most other websites. I would think of all sites to go slow, google.com would not be one of them. Anyone have any ideas as to why my browser loads pages so much faster than hers?
Anybody notice they are losing their Internet connectivity while tethering with 2.2 Roms. I have run BB, Kangerade, and CM6 rc1&2 with them all losing Internet connectivity completely. I have tried different kernels and different baseband all resulting in the connectivity loss. Is this a hardware problem with the phone or is it software based. This is a somewhat new phone and I honestly can't remember my previous one giving me this many problems while running 2.2 roms when they first came out.
I have looked around and I can't seem to find this answer. I currently have com cast high speed internet and my laptop broke yesterday. I now have a desktop and would like to know how to turn the DROID to act as a wireless card so it can connect to my home router using the internet?
I am thinking of switching over to the DroidX from the iphone 3gs (ATT).I was wondering if I will be able to browse the web via 3G while I am on a call. I read that due to CDMA tech, I will not be able to do this on Verizon.
When I'm ordering something on the internet using my Droid X and highlight the initial form field, my keyboard opens, but I lose the ability to see the webpage.No big deal until I have a form that requires multiple entries (Last Name, First Name, etc) at which point I have multiple data field boxes that need to be completed, but no way to see exactly what data is being requested in each box. Is there a way to set the keyboard so that only one data box shows at a time, or so that I can close the keyboard after each entry so that I can see the next box on the webpage?
Does anybody else notice at times their internet connection hanging? It will sometimes partially load a page and then not respond for minutes after. I end up force closing the browser, waiting a few minutes and then trying again.
Has anyone been able to do this? USB or Bluetooth DUN? I installed PDAnet on the phone but the Archos won't pair with the Droid. They're both running Android so I thought it might work. The archos has WiFi and bluetooth. I've tried WiFi-net sharing on my Touch Pro 2 but it won't recognize the network?
B4 I buy PdaNet for tethering my new DROID, I really need to know how Internet usage is measured, so I don't get hit with a huge data overage bill. Specifically, how much is being used by Skype w/video. Also, what about using the legal poker sites, e.g. Pokerstars, U.B., Fulltilt, etc. As far as bandwidth/downloading, is safe to tether to all these sites, or is there cause for concern re: going over 5GB per month. On MyVerizon, they tell you what your up to date cell minutes for your monthly cycle are, but I don't see that for the Internet; how do you know where you stand?
When I go to some forums on the internet I can never figure out how to get back to my Home internet page. Instead of always pressing the back button to get there is there an easier way to do it? I do not mean my home screen on the phone but rather my internet home page.
Im really looking at getting this phone. What I really need though is to have the ability to use my phone as a wifi router to use my laptop when needed. My current 2 year old samsung i760 is running an app called WM wifi router that is currently doing this, for free. To me this is a deal breaker if the phone cannot do this. I have looked everywhere on the interwebz and have not found no such info for this phone.
First of all I have a Droid X flashed to Cricket.All was well including 3g internet.That is until last week when I decided to upgrade to 2.2.I lost the internet.Went back to where I had it flashed.He had to wipe the phone and reflash it.This included him pushing the file to the phone that gives me internet.The phone worked the rest of that day. Then the next morning the phone kept locking up.I took it back to him again, he wiped it reflashed it and pushed the file again with the same result of it locking up.We found that it was the internet file that was locking up the phone.As of right now it is flashed without the internet working. If we push that file to the phone it locks it up. The same file that gave me internet when I was on 2.1.My question is, is there a way for me to be on 2.2 and get the internet on Cricket?Why is this happening? How do I make it work without going back to 2.1
I've had an issue w/ my Internet browser closing on me for quite a while. It just closes down to where ever I was before the Internet was launched, w/o a "force close" message box. This has happened across many diff ROMs, many diff browsers, and many diff kernels. Hell, it's been happening since at least 2.1 and perhaps 2.0.1. I've tried clearing caches, wifi, lowering the kernel MHz, yet the issues still persist. Sometimes it happens instantaneously upon opening, sometimes it waits till I'm enjoying surfing away from my pc.
I am able connect via WiFi to home network just fine - connects quickly and I get a proper IP.
However, nothing will connect - email, browser, marketplace, etc...
Everything works fine from my laptop on the same wireless network. Never had any issue w/any guest laptops at my home on the network. I don't have mac address filtering or any other settings like that...am using wpa.
Any ideas? Never seen this happen before...previously I've used my phone on wifi from home it worked, but that's been quite a while, can't remember when/which ROM.
Again - I connect fine to my wireless network, get an IP, but when I try to access anything from my phone it acts like I'm not connected. Go back to 3G and all is fine. Tried going back and forth between wifi and 3g, and it behaves the same way each time...appreciate any help.
Now it's working...weird. Didn't change any setting. I was trying another ROM (that wouldn't even boot for me - Chevy has a new 2.1 w/working auto-brightness, mute, keyboard lock) and after flashing back to 7.9 now wifi is working.
I've had WiFi tethering for awhile now, but I have never got it to work properly. The problem is that I will have, say, my laptop, or any device for that matter, connected to my Droid and I am able to maintain a steady internet connection for about a minute. After that, the tethering application reports a download speed of 0.0kbps. If I disconnect my laptop (or other device) and reconnect it, it'll start to work again, but only for about another minute. Any ideas as to why this is happening?
Running Fab's NexTheme ROM that has Wired and Wireless Tether. Problem is Wired Tether doesn't work for me. The program runs without a problem, but my laptop that is connected to the Droid via USB cable doesn't access the Internet. Drivers and what not are all updated - just curious to know what the problem is. Funny thing is that when connected via USB normally, my laptop recognizes my Droid with no problem. It's only when I run the Wired Tether program that all of a sudden my laptop no longer recognizes my phone and, as a result, won't access the Internet.
