Motorola :: Droid Provide Internet Access To IPod Touch?

Dec 16, 2009

I see a previous question about the fact that the Blue tooth technology on an iphone will only allow it to pair with the Nike shoe thing and some kind of head set, and will not allow it to pair to the Droid for transferring files or even to access internet. So, is there a way to use the wireless capabilities of the Droid to share its internet connection since the ipod touch can also use wi-fi? I don't have an ipod touch or I'd try it but I'd like to buy one (for the wife) and if we're in the car, she can use my droid's Verizon signal to get on the internet with the ipod torch's wi-fi capabilities.

Motorola Droid :: Droid Vs Ipod Touch Vs Archos 5

Nov 19, 2009

I bought the droid, love it (using it as a wifi enabled media player with tons of apps), and can still return it penalty free, but am not impressed with the call quality. I am thinking about either getting the ipod touch, dropping the verizon service and using the droid, or getting the archos 5. I dont need GPS, phone, or the camera. I have a few questions.

1 Is this a stupid idea? I can get a 64gb ipod touch for $399. The 16gb droid will be $375 after early termination penalty.

2 How will it function without verizon? I will only be using data downloads where WIFI is enabled, everywhere else it will just be a stand alone media player.

3 I would like to use skype over WIFI. The skype lite app for droid does not allow that. Does the ipod touch require you to use an accessory with a microphone?

4 Battery power. I read on these forums that turning off the droid does not stop the battery from draining. If i turn the droid off and dont use it for a week, will it be dead?

5 How about Archos?

HTC Hero :: Connect Ipod Touch To Internet Via Hero

Jan 26, 2010

I've got no wireless network at work, but sometimes want to connect my ipod touch to the itunes store to get new tunes. I've heard it's possible to use the 3G on my hero to route my ipod touch and get online - is this true? And if so, anyone know how it's done?

Android :: Switching From IPod Touch To Droid?

Jul 9, 2010

I am currently using a dumb phone and an iPod Touch for my mobile needs. I was hoping Apple would come out with a Verizon model, but that may or may not ever happen. I have been reading about the new Droid X and have been impressed with what I've read. However, I have a number of apps on my iPod that I use on a regular basis and am wondering how happy I would be with what's available for the Droid.I am using Gmail, so that's not a problem. I use Apple's address book and have not been satisfied with the way Google handles that, so I would need to be able to sync my contacts to Apple. I have tons of music and audio books in iTunes, I have a number of books from, and I use Fluent News for the iPod for my newspaper fix (along with an AP app, the NY Times, and USA Today). I have a diet program that keeps my meals on the iPod, not on the web, and allows me to quickly enter without any fuss the foods I eat and gives me a balance of how many calories I have left (and allows me to customize the food bank without having to scan through hundreds of foods I don't eat). I have a few e-books from Project Gutenberg that I read on Stanza, though any e-book program that would allow me to access them would work fine. I also keep my ToDo list on Toodledo and use their iPod app to access it on the move.

Have any of you made the move from an iPod or iPhone to a Droid? How happy are you with the apps. Would the Droid have apps that would give me what I have above (not the same developers, of course, but something comparable)? I've done some reading and my son-in-law let me play with an older model Droid, but before I invest, I would like to know more. I can return the Droid X to Verizon within 30 days with a re-stocking fee, so a switch that didn't work wouldn't be devastating, but I hate to invest the time if I don't have a good chance of being satisfied.

HTC EVO 4G :: Tired Of Carrying My Touch Pro And An Ipod Touch

Jun 14, 2010

I'm really struggling between the EVO and the iphone 4.My HTC Touch Pro looked shiny when I bought it a year and a half ago, and now it feels obsolete. I can barely use it for more that texting/phone, far less than the device promised. In the time I've had it, there was one update which mostly just fixed bugs. And in my other pocket I have a first generation ipod touch that feels superior in every way, except the phone part.I have no confidence in HTC's ability to support it's products and improve them over time, Apple does do this, my ipod touch is better than when I bought it four years ago. But the EVO runs android and it looks like that is something that is going to develop over time.Will the device be able to rely on android in that way? I'm already seeing people suggest that HTC will lag behind android updates because they'll fail to update their android skins in a timely manner.Can the EVO run on just android if that UI experience turns out to be better than what HTC can offer?

My other primary concern is itunes syncing. I have dozens of 'smart playlists' that I've pretty carefully designed to change and improve with my listening habits, and all of my podcasts sync through itunes. Also, I've been using 'itunes U' to listen to full courses and my itunes is set up so that every time I sync my finished lectures are replaced with the next in the series.... So, I'm sure many of you have seen the EVO "tutorial" showing you how to load music onto the device, literally just dumping files onto the devices hard drive, that is effing laughable. Is there a reasonable way to sync and listen to music on the EVO?

Motorola Droid :: BB 7.9 - Wifi Connects But No Internet Access?

Mar 2, 2010

I'm having an odd issue w/Pete's BB 7.9...

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 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.

HTC Incredible :: Should I Sell My IPod Touch?

Jun 23, 2010

I'm a soon to be Android owner and will probably start using this forum often, but I currently have an iPod Touch. I'm upgrading from my Blackberry Storm (for obvious reasons) to the HTC Incredible. So I'm having a tough time deciding if I should sell my iPod Touch when I get the Incredible. Is the music player as user friendly and high quality as the iPod's? How is the browser speed over WiFi?

Android :: Hardware Like Ipod Touch?

May 20, 2010

I know this gets asked from time to time, just thought I would ask to see if anything has changed.Is there a current or an announced future of hardware similar in size and price to the Ipod Touch that supports Android 2.X?My guess is that the answer is no. Apple can sell it at low margin because of the Itunes store lock in, which is not applicable to sellers of Android hardware.

Motorola Droid :: Wired Tether Not Working / No Internet Access

Apr 20, 2010

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.
