i rooted to get better battery life and my brother has the dx also non rooted and his battery life destroys mine i have the brightness turned to 0 and have set CPU and juice defender plus i have the build prop mods and the blacked out top bar that was downloaded from ROM manager.Now what did i do wrong
I just got a OG droid or droid 1 and I cant figure out how to turn off my keypad tones. it gets annoyin when im texting and hearing the ting ting ting noise. I've already went to the sound menu and turned off keypad tones or watever and still didnt make a difference.
Calling someone using the dialer keypad will never route over Google Voice. Calling someone from the "People" application works fine. Of course I have GV enabled for all calls. Is this the way it is or is something messed up?
I've had my Hero for over 2 weeks and just recently noticed that the top of the silver keypad area at the bottom of the phone is slightly raised from the level of the glass. I don't remember it being that way but maybe I just didn't notice it until now. For some reason I thought it was flush (even) with the glass before. When I run my finger over it and onto the glass I can tell it (the silver keyboard area) is slightly raised.
When I am in a call on my Sprint HTC Hero, if I bring up the touch-keypad, hit the number 1 and then slide the keypad away, I get a message "Starting MMI sequence" and the call disconnects. The reason I discovered this is because I use Google Voice and I need to press 1 to accept a call or 2 to send it to voic email. But, when I press 1 and slide away the keypad, it disconnects. This does not happen when I press the actual keypad soft-button to get the keypad to disappear, it only happens when I swipe it down and away. It runs other MMI Sequences, depending on which key I press... (2 and 4 give me a dial tone to make another call, 3 gives me a popup that says "unable to conference calls", etc...) so is this a function of the phone (like a shortcut or something), or is it something that shouldn't be happening? Like I said, I don't think I've noticed it before the last day or so and I can't find anything about it in the manual or on any of the forums. Should pressing a button on the soft-keypad and swiping the keyboard away while in a call always run an "MMI Sequence"?
My phone unpredictably generates DTMF tones , which is a PITA when calling automated menu systems, as it will get you into menu items which were called by the DTMF tones. This happens for up to about 30 secs into a call.
Before upgrading to 2.1 I was able to use MP3 songs as ring tones, so for the people I associate a song with, I recognize who is calling before looking... Am I missing something, or is this capability gone with 2.1? Was there a market place app I was running that I forgot to reload, or is this feature just gone?
Overall I'm pleased with the phone, but the volume seems a bit quiet. I've maxed all the volume settings, but my ring tone and notifications are definitely less audible and crisp than on my old HTC Magic. Has anybody else noticed this?
Just picked this up yesterday and I'm very impressed. This is my first droid phone and it blows away the other phones I've owned in the past. Not really a fan of the iPhone and have been on AT&T forever..it's time for a change. My last phone was a Nokia E72 which is a great phone, but wanted more! Gonna put that on E-bay soon hah.
The only complaints I have so far are the notification sounds are quiet even at the max volume setting. The Nokia E72 is a lot louder both in ringtone and sms tones. Also, the four buttons on the bottom sometimes don't respond. I find I have to occasionally hit the same button a couple times to get it to work. Very minor tho imo. It's not too frequent.
I have been missing many calls from my Hero more than any other Sprint phone I owned, has anyone experienced this issue? not even a ring, full bars of signal strength and goes to voicemail at times, not all the time but my wife says it happens a lot when she tries to contact me, any suggestions folks? I read some stuff about the Slot Index would this solve my issue? or would I be best to root my phone since I am still stock?
I want to use speech to text which I thought was going to be in this update. I installed Better Keyboard and Swipe keyboard. I enabled both in the settings (they are checked), but when I click the options button on the keyboard and try to select a keyboard, I only get the 3 standard options (QWERTY, Phone, Compact QWERTY). Any ideas why?
Whenever I put my phone on "silent," its not suppose to make a sound. I have my media volume all the way down. When I get a call, it doesn't ring or vibrate or anything, but when I get a text, it rings. I searched through all the threads about the apps for the volume, but I want to know which one is the best free one. I really don't want a repeat of what happened in my class.
I doubt it but it's worth a shot. Is it possible to have a different volume assigned to each app by use of a setting or app? I like plugging my phone into my car speakers and playing pandora while using gps. The only problem is that the music overpowers the gps voice. It would be nice to be able to lower the pandor app volume and raise the gps voice volume.
I have done the latest firmware update and for some reason I can not find the App called Calorie Counter. This was one of my favorite apps and now its like it never existed? Does anybody else not see calorie counter when they search for it? I don't understand how it could just not show up anymore in the market. If anyone has it, could they possibly back up the app to there SD card and send me the .apk file so I can install it? Would that work?
I completed a root last night (after a ton of help from the board - thanks again!) my only thing is i am missing navigation. any idea how to restore this? i attempted to follow flips tutorial for adding missing apps, but had no success. any ideas? is there an easy way to do this? via command prompt?
I have spent way too many hours, and too much of a very nice forum member's time as well, trying to add back the HTC Stock app missing from DC 2.08.1.Download: Removed APK's from Fresh Rom 2.1 Geek For Me - Android CDMA Sprint Hero Tried pushing from adb, tried installing thru apps installer, tried from astro file manager, tried from root explorer.
I had Shooter Lite (a free ballistics app) on stock Hero. Then I wiped and flashed Fresh. Now that app won't show up in the market for me.I know I read something about apps not showing up if the ROM is not "signed" by Google, or something. But the zip from Fresh 2.1.2 ends with "_signed_release". So what do you do to get missing apps to show up?
I just rooted my phone and flashed 2.2, but Sprint Navigation is missing. The navigation that loaded up is painfully slow, anyone know how I can get Sprint Navigation or an equivalent navigation app back onto my phone?
I am trying to ascertain if the missing apps problem is a phone problem or a network issue. Anyone here running stock Hero 1.5 able to download Weatherbug Elite, Camera Zoom FX or tapatalk? I was told by our network that when we get 2.1 they will appear, but if I remember right there were folks here running stock Hero 1.5 on Sprint who had them.
The only app so far I've noticed to be missing in the market since I've installed the latest RUU 2.1 leak for the Hero is Pure Calender Widget (Agenda). I've tried scanning a QR code and it wouldnt work.
Has anyone's email notification stopped working? The envelope that usually appears in the notification bar doesn't show anymore, but when I look at my mail shortcut on the homescreen, it shows the green circle with the number of new emails. Did I accidentally change something or do you think it's a bug?
For some reason I am getting alerts for text messages and then when I try to read the message it is not there. Its like I never received it. I am using Handcent to manage my sms messages. I don't have it set to display a pop-up, which now I am thinking I should.
