Motorola Droid :: Activating Service After Root

Aug 10, 2010

I'm extremely new at this, and I seem to have run into a problem that I cannot find a solution for from searching. To be honest, I registered this account to ask this question because right now I'm a bit frantic to get my Motorola Droid back working (Verizon service). This afternoon I attempted to root my phone, and everything seemed to be going according to plan. Right after my phone finished flashing the rooted 2.1 ROM, it rebooted and the original setup appeared on the screen.

I followed the instructions as it asked and tried to activate my phone. I pressed the little green android, and proceeded to call the Verizon number and I press 1 to activate my phone for service. Once the whole process was finished, it told me that my phone had finish being programed. When I pressed the "Next" button in the bottom right corner, I was taken back to the first setup screen which informed me that I need to activate again. Needless to say, I'm now stuck in an infinite loop of this and can't figure out what to do. I've left the phone with full bars for over an hour to try to get the service to activate with no luck. At this point, I just really want to be able to use my phone as a phone again!

Motorola Droid :: Wi-fi When Out Of Cell Service

Mar 19, 2010

I'm heading out to Haiti next week to volunteer with the earthquake relief effort. The NGO base where I'll be camping will have WiFi for a couple hours a day. I don't want to lug a laptop down there but want to stay connected to email. Do you know if there's any issue using WiFi without cell service?I don't have a desire to be using the cell phone service while I'm there; email will be enough.

Motorola Droid :: Poor Cell Reception - 3g Service

Jul 28, 2010

For the past couple weeks my phone has been acting very strange and has been getting pretty poor recpetion. I run BB.4 and P3Droid 1.0ghz and 3e baseband. I have tried .41 & .43 and did not get any better reception. Basically the issue is i get 3g for a while and all of a sudden i get 1x where i should have full 3g. If i shut my phone off and turn back on I then get 3g service back. I ultimately noticed it while in Chicago and i had terrible service when everyone else had great service. In Chi i went through all the basebands with no luck. Yesterday I restored back to rooted 2.1 by Pete and i still had a issue. So what i am looking for is there any settings i should look for that maybe off. I doubt its a common issue and i want to look at everything before calling to get it swapped out for a like new droid.

HTC EVO 4G :: Sprint Cell Phone Service Phoenix

Apr 15, 2010

If anyone is CURRENTLY with Sprint for their cell service in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area of Arizona, could you please tell me how your cell service is?I'm looking at moving to the HTC EVO in June when my contract is up with Verizon, but I'm pretty worried about the quality of Sprint's service. Most comments I have heard about Sprint have been either average or negative.On the contrary, my time with Verizon has really been stellar, few if any dropped calls, coverage EVERYWHERE it seems, and pretty decent customer service.Even though Sprints plans are $30 to $40 cheaper than Verizon, it won't matter if the service stinks and I can't make/receive calls or get on broadband.Just trying to weigh my options as the Incredible will be out as well, and may have to go with that one instead.

Motorola Droid X :: Set Bluetooth To Activate With The Car Dock App?

Jul 26, 2010

I read the thread at http://androidforums.com/support-troubleshooting-incredible/85052-bluetooth-battery-consumption.html and noticed everyone saying that BT significantly drains your battery when on but not in use. It seems like a huge pain to have to press an icon everytime I get in the car and everytime I leave to turn it back on, especially since I don't get too many calls while I'm driving. Is there a way to have BT cut on when the car dock app is activated (I have the Motorola car dock app)? And if not, does anyone know if the drain in battery on the DX is significant?

I currently have a Droid Eris phone - but I'm thinking of switching carriers and won't be able to use the Eris on the new carrier. What I'm wondering is - could the Eris still be used with WiFi only, without any cell service?For example - with no cell service and only access to WiFi access points - could I...

- access gmail or surf the web

- access the Android Marketplace for new apps or updates

Basically I'm wondering if the Eris could be used by my son as a sort of Android based iPod Touch.

Motorola Droid :: Accidental - Activate Search Feature

Dec 14, 2009

This may have already been discovered but this weekend while holding my Droid I stumbled upon a cool (maybe useless) feature. If you have the "Google Search" shortcut on your home screen like I do, all you have to do is lightly shake the Droid to activate the search feature. You have to be on the same home screen as the Google Search shortcut. The weird thing is I cannot reproduce my findings 100% of the time. For instance, this morning it worked 7 out of 10 times.

Motorola Droid :: Line Via Phandroid/Verizon Wireless - Won't Activate

Nov 8, 2009

I bought my Droid on line via Phandroid/Verizon Wireless just after midnight on Friday and filled out all the info, picked a Verizon plan, gave them my current cell number (which is an AT&T Mobile number) and checked the boxes that said "yes, please port my old number on to my new Verizon phone".

So I get the phone today (superfast -- I hadn't even paid for overnight delivery). But when I follow the instructions to activate, the activation fails. I touch the Droid on the touchscreen, it brings up the phone, I follow the voice prompts and dial my cell number, but it doesn't work.

Spoke with a VW customer service rep (late night Saturday night). He gave me a different customer service # to call on Sunday for help with "porting."

I sure hope I get this straightened out quickly. Maybe I should've just bought the Droid at a Verizon store and let the VW store guys activate it for me.

The VW customer service rep was saying I should see a "temporary Verizon cell #" somewhere on my receipt or packing slip. But there isn't any. Just the mobile # that I'm trying to port over from AT&T.

Did I do something wrong when I ordered the phone? Or is it normal for there to be a delay in getting the old # ported?

Android :: Getting Cell Signal Strength For Current Cell Vs Neighboring Cells

Jan 6, 2010

I'm writing an android application that collects cell signal strengths.I am having trouble getting the "current" cell signal strength, but I don't have any problem getting the "neighboring" cell signal strengths.To get the current cell signal strength, I created a PhoneStateListener and implemented the onSignalStrengthChanged callback.It works, but not very well.It seems like the signal strength hardly ever changes, and resolution jumps to only a few numbers.I would accept the answer that the resolution of the signal strength hardware is coarse, but when I use the TelephonyManager's getNeighboringCellInfo() method, it works much better.The signal strength readings from neighboring cells change frequently, and they have much better resolution.So, how can I get the current cell signal strength in the same way that I am getting the neighboring cell strengths?It seems odd to me that the functionality of the neighboring cells is better than the current cell.

Motorola Droid :: What Plan Do I Need To Activate Droid On Verizon?

Dec 23, 2009

I'm looking to pick up a Droid (with no contract... my wallet says ouch) but its okay because I can partially offset the costs by selling my current phone) . My family made the rushed decision to switch to Verizon in October and I ended up getting the Samsung Rogue. I currently have the family plan + a basic texting plan (200 or 300 messages a month, I forgot which one lol) + 25MB Basic Data. Would I be able to activate the Droid via the Verizon website or by phone without having to add anything extra. I know they will probably ask me to get the unlimited data, but I was wondering if there is anyway around this? I really like my rogue, but it doesn't compare to Droid. The rogue has no wifi , and its GPS is completely limited due to VZW Navigator, Not to mention the Android OS + Apps + 5MP Camera

Motorola Droid :: Cell Signal Strength Meter App

May 4, 2010

anyone seen an app that simply reports yours signal strength? the built in one (settings > about phone > status) seems to report, but in a way that makes some sense. for example, anyone know what -90 dBm 0 asu really means?

I have a cool app called GPS test that shows the GPS strength - bar chart and number and color - of GPS signals.

I have another app called No Signal Alert that tells you when you have lost your signal. I emailed them to incorporate a signal strength meter, as it seems a logical app to have it.

I'd like to watch the video on my computer screen. Is this possible or should I just look for some website that would ultimately do the same thing?

Motorola Droid X :: Battery Life Is Terrible - Shows Display At 93% And Cell Standby At 7%

Aug 2, 2010

First off, I read these forums like every day for 2 months (nearly drove my wife insane!) leading up to the release of the X. Stood in line and bought one in the store on the 15th. Had nothing but iPhones until now - loving my DroidX!

BUT

As of right now my battery is down to 60% after having been unplugged (when I unplugged I was at 100%) for 1hr 46m 9s!

It shows display at 93% and cell standby at 7%.

I'm running smart battery mode, auto screen brightness, not that many widgets, and I rooted it and have autokiller running on Aggressive.

Do I just have a bad battery? And if so will Verizon (or Moto) give me a new one?
