If you want the OP updated then PM me, I can't check this thread everyday.I think we could use this thread to keep track of 4G coverage as Sprint and Clear roll it out as well as rumored 4G spots. Here's a map and list of cities so far Clear has covered.

Motorola Droid :: Turn Off Sync In Areas Of Poor Coverage?

Mar 29, 2010

I have a Verizon brand car charger but have never had the need to use it until this weekend when I traveled from NJ to VT for skiing. I had the navigation and pandora going the entire trip with the charger pluged in. However when I got there and unplugged the battery was almost completely dead.

Does the car charger not supply enough power to charge and run the droid with all the data and gps usage going?

Also the area where I was staying had very poor coverage and once the droid was charged it lost its charge very quickly. should I turn off sync in areas of poor coverage?

Aug 11, 2010

No matter where I go I have terrible 3G coverage. Either a weak signal or no coverage at all. I've had a blackberry before and always had great 3G coverage in these same areas. What could be the problem?

Android :: Managing Wimax

Oct 19, 2010

You can manage wifi connectivity, and you can kind of manage 3G, but what about 4G, more specifically WiMAX? I saw an API on ClearWire's website, but I am not sure if Google is planning to include WiMAX as part of the SDK. Does anyone have an insight? I am looking for connect/disconnect functionality, failover connection settings, etc.

Android :: What Are Some Techniques To Create Scrollable Areas?

Mar 17, 2010

I'm getting started with OpenGL ES on Android and I'd looking to learn some techniques to have a game map larger than the visible area.I'm assuming I've somehow got to ensure that the system isn't rendering the entire scene, including what's outside of the visible area.I'm just not sure how I'd go about designing this.This is for simple 2D top-down tile based rendering. No real 3D except what's inherent in OpenGL ES itself.Would anyone be able to get me started on the right path? Are there options that might scale nicely when I decide to start tilting my perspective and doing 3D?

Android :: Set Clickable Areas Of Single Image?

Nov 2, 2010

I want to create a scrollable map and trigger different actions when the user touches a different areas. With iPhone, it was easy by putting buttons on top of the image. How do I do it in Android? I used a custom view to enable scrolling in both directions. Now how do I make different parts of the image trigger different events on click?

Android :: WiMAX System Software

Oct 7, 2009

using Clearwire WiMax Innovation Network in Silicon Valley. The speed is unbelievable. Perhaps it is because the network is open only for the developers. If this kind of connectivity and speed is available to the public, then it will be awesome.

Instead of the PC, can I use Android phone to access this network. I can connect the WiMAX modem through the USB on my phone. But I may need the WiMAX system software.

Android :: AApp Not Connecting Using WIMAX/4G

Nov 16, 2010

I have an Android application that uses URLConnection to connect to a REST service and gets some content. I am getting a ton of complaints that it doesn't work over a 4G connection like WiMAX, though it works fine over WiFi or 3G connections. Is there anything special I have to do before attempting the REST request to allow it to use the 4G connection? I am using Android 2.2. This is very hard to test as I only have Droid and a HTC Hero to work with.

Android :: Block Guest Users From Going Through Certain Areas Of Phone?

Oct 2, 2010

When my nephew is at my house, he likes to mess around with my HTC Desire. He usually plays games on my phone. Recently, he's been going into places in my phone that I don't want him to go in. My email, my contacts, and other files. Once, he even sent out a massive test to random people on my contact list. So, I banned him from playing with my phone until I find an app that blocks guest users from going through parts of my phone that I don't want them too.

HTC EVO 4G :: Cannot Update Wimax

Sep 29, 2010

Using Clockworkmod recovery, I flashed the HTC OTA Froyo 2.2 Final (3.26.651.6) Odexed ROM from here. I also flashed the Radio update as well as the Wimax update.

The first two seem to work, since I see Android version 2.2 and Baseband version in phone info. I downloaded the latest Wifi Tether for Root, installed it and got it to work successfully.

However, the Wimax was not updated. Android Terminal Emulator still shows the older version "" and not 26023. I believe I did the flashing correctly, rebooting after each update. I tried it both with ROM Manager, as well as manually. I didnt see any issues/errors while flashing.

HTC EVO 4G :: Radio - Wimax - PRI - NV

Oct 11, 2010

Can someone explain this thread:

It has the Radio / Wimax / PRI / NV

I understand in concept that the radio is the 3G cellular antenna, and Wimax is 4G, and that you could have various versions that may differ in different ROMs, correct?

What is PRI?

And what is NV? Who do these things do?

HTC EVO 4G :: Use WiMAX LED For SMS/MMS Notifications

Sep 29, 2010

How to use WiMAX LED on HTC EVO for SMS/MMS notifications

"Since the notification LED on the left side of the HTC EVO 4G's earpiece isn't customizable, you can't tell if a flashing green light means a missed call, SMS/MMS, email, alarm, reminder, or voicemail without turning on the phone and looking at the screen. Wouldn't visual notifications be more useful if the WiMAX LED on the right side of the earpiece displayed some of them too? Then you could get a better idea of what was going on more quickly and decide whether it was worth stopping whatever you were doing to deal with it. Text messages, for example, are almost always important, so why not assign SMS/MMS notifications to the WiMAX LED?

Here's how you do it:

1. Download bludragon742's WiMAX Notifier. The latest version (10.09.06), released earlier this week, doesn't require root and can be used for SMS/MMS (stock messaging app, Handcent, and Chomp have been tested). Later versions will support missed calls, Gmail, and voicemail. Install it on your EVO and launch it to adjust the settings.

2. Choose your desired LED color and blinking rate from the list: green slow, green glow, green & red alternate, orange glow, red solid, green solid, orange solid. Press Home -> Menu -> Settings -> Display -> Notification flash.

3. Uncheck the SMS/MMS option so that the standard notification LED does not blink when a message is received.

Now whenever you get a new SMS or MMS, the WiMAX LED will let you know about it. And when the notification LED goes off at other times, you'll know it's not because of a text message"

HTC EVO 4G :: Wimax Vs HSPA Or LTE

Mar 29, 2010

I was just thinking yesterday about download speeds and such and I remembered, just 10 years ago a T1 line was the standard for any real business to have internet access. T1 was so expensive also. only the people with real money could afford one to their home. T1 is a dedicated 1.5Mbps.

I could do anything I wanted with a T1 line.

Wimax will give me more then a T1. Why do I care about theoretical speeds that HSPA+ or LTE will give me? I don't.

HTC EVO 4G :: Wimax Useability On LTE

May 6, 2010

Clear recently suggested that if they want they can switch over to LTE. Now does that mean that the EVO that is said to work on Wimax will be able to be used on LTE? This is a HUGE question and a determining factor in my purchase of the first Wimax phone.

HTC EVO 4G :: Wimax - Connection Correction

Nov 3, 2010

This is a confirmed fix for the long lag time (5+ minutes) to reconnect after losing a 4G signal.
Those of us using a rom with the newest software 1.47.651.1 have been having issues with the 4G connection not reconnecting when losing 4G signal. These instructions fix this problem.

Your MSL code (See Here: [How To] Retrieve MSL CDMA Workshop Method - xda-developers)

Turn OFF your 4G radio if it is turned on!
1) Click on phone and dial ##DATA# (##3282#)
2) Click on "Edit Mode"
3) Type in your MSL code (see above if you don't have it yet)
4) Click on the menu entry "WiMAX"
5) Scroll down the list and click on "WiMAX_Scan_Retry(s)"
6) Enter the number 15 and click "OK" (This equals 15 seconds instead of 300 seconds)
7) Scroll down the list and click on "WiMAX_Entry_Delay(s)"
8) Enter the number 0 and click "OK" (This equals 0 seconds instead of 300 seconds)
9) Press the "Menu" key and click on "Commit Modifications"
10) Grab a cup of coffee, get a bite to eat, or sit back and wait for your EVO to restart

1) Go to your phone's settings and click on "Wireless & networks"
2) Scroll down and click on 4G settings
3) Click on 4G to turn it on and wait for the status to change to "Connected to Sprint"
4) Without touching any of the menu items, cover the top half of your phone with your hands until the status changes to "Scanning..."
5) Uncover the top of the phone and count the seconds until it says "Connecting to Sprint"
6) Realize that you no longer have to cycle the 4G radio to reconnect

After modifying my EVO and my girlfriend's EVO and inputting these changes, the phone will reconnect to the 4G tower in as little as 20 seconds!
Yes, 20 seconds, the most I have seen so far is 30 seconds after dropping the connection. This is a HUGE improvement over the 5+ minutes to reconnect (300+ seconds).

HTC EVO 4G :: Is Wimax Even Worth Turning On

Jul 14, 2010

I've been enjoying my evo so far with one huge complaint. I don't think wimax 4g is even worth having right now. First it is a battery hog, and second building penetration is terrible....i stay on wifi most of the time but when I do turn 4g it just doesn't am practical. Another thing is that sprint is really advertising this as a 4g phone but for the normal customer I would think they would beupset that their signal isn't reliable...well the point of this thread its to see how everybody else feels about wimax. And for those who want to call me a troll you can check my history.

HTC Hero :: Overheating In Particular Areas While Talking On Phone

Oct 21, 2009

Just got my sprint hero last week. I noticed that while talking on the phone for longer than 5 minutes the phone seems to get extremely hot. In particular the speaker in the front and where the camera is in the back. The heat generated is really intense and is really uncomfortable after a certain amount of time. What I want to know is anybody else having this issue?

HTC Droid Eris :: Polish Chrome-like Areas?

Feb 3, 2010

I noticed some small scratches on the chrome-painted headphone jack today. I assume it's just a chrome paint and would probably wear off with even the slightest effort. But I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask if anyone has ever tried to polish something like that with any luck.

HTC EVO 4G :: Flashing Radio / WiMax Updates?

Jul 19, 2010

Does doing a clean wipe for a ROM install erase any previous radio / wimax updates? I switched from Fresh 1.0 to Backed Snack but did a radio and wimax updates with Fresh. Should I re-apply those updates after flashing the Baked Snack ROM or are they still updated from the Fresh 1.0 ROM?
