Motorola Droid X :: Reduce Data Roaming Charges In Canada

Sep 6, 2010

I'm heading up North with my new X and want to reduce the VZW data roaming charges in Canada as much as possible, but without losing or reducing my Exchange email service.

I will:
cut back on unnecessary browsing.
stop downloading videos!
turn off background data.
turn off HTML for emails.
use Wi-Fi when possible.
turn off GPS.

Is this the right approach? Any suggestions on other uses or apps to avoid?

HTC Incredible :: AVOID International Roaming Charges?

Jun 29, 2010

Does anyone know/have experience with avoiding int'l roaming charges? I called verizon and the rep said that I would roam anytime my phone is on, and that I would incur charges, which is NOT what I want. I don't need 3G or any other type of phone or data connection associated with the network. All I want to be able to do is use Fring/skype/googlevoice through a WiFi connection. I've been reading and am getting confused with all this 'APN' on/off stuff. Can't I just put the phone in airport mode and connect to WiFi through my DINC?

HTC Desire : Getting A Local Sim - Just Paying Crazy Roaming Charges?

Aug 17, 2010

Slightly off topic, but for Desire and you lot seem to know your stuff. I'm travelling in the states for a month. Is it worth getting a local sim or just paying the crazy roaming charges. If local sim, what's the best way to get one?

I only really need the internet side of things. Will occasionally check voicemail and the odd text, but those costs will be small. Cycling Vancouver to San Fran so having unlimited access for those 2 weeks would be a massive help. Any ideas? I'm on O2 with an unbranded Desire.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Data Roaming Charges Showing Up On Bill?

Jun 30, 2010

I have been a Sprint customer for a very long time. My wife and I both have smartphones and we have the Unlimited 1500 plan. To my knowledge, this includes everything (excluding International calls.....which I know for a fact thanks to an $1800 fraud that was on my bill 2 months ago). I digress, data roaming is included as a part of this plan as far as I know.

I checked my bill online yesterday, and there was an alert that I have used 3800+KB of data roaming.

Now....let me start by saying, yes, I do have the setting checked to allow for data roaming (as to my knowledge, it's included in my plan). I do have the Hero (my second one) and for the life of me, I can't figure out why it goes into roaming mode more than any other Sprint phone I've ever owned. My wife's phone could be sitting next to mine, and I'll be roaming while she is not. That being said, I can guarantee there have been instances where I've roamed and pulled down data (checking email, automatically checking weather/facebook/twitter/etc, internet) and I've never seen this alert on my account.

I called Sprint last night to question it, and they put a $20 service credit on my account. That's all fine and great, as I'm not going to turn down free money, but I had explained that my concern was that the alert is showing up to begin with. I even explained that while I appreciate the credit, I'd rather just have this situation resolved so that I don't have to call back next month if these charges appear.

My question is this, has anyone ever seen this before? I am rooted, I am running Fresh 2.1.1 and I have the latest SPRINT radio flashed from Flipz' website. I have had this setup for a little over 2 months now, so this isn't the first billing cycle that this setup has seen. I can't figure this out for the life of me.

If this continues to be a problem, it's either going to require a new device or a new carrier. I live in a very populated western suburb in Chicagoland and have NEVER had a problem with roaming or poor signal until I got the Hero in October.

HTC Droid Eris :: Headphones Calling People

Jan 20, 2010

So on my way to class the other day listening to the media player in the car was just fine, I plug it in to one of those little FM transmitter things and it bounces along under my e-brake handle just fine. But when I parked my car and plugged in my headphones things went bonkers. It started skipping tracks, fast forward, and rewinding tracks, and finally started calling people, I called a friend of mine 4 times. When it started doing it again tonight I did some investigating and discovered that it's recognizing my headPHONES as a headSET. I tried it with my roommate's headphones and it started as headphones but if I twisted the plug the little microphone would appear.So I guess this is a 2 part question.

1.) Can I turn off the microphone of a headset through the phone?

2.) Has anyone else encountered this problem and how did you fix it?

Ok that's 3 parts but who's counting.

HTC Droid Eris :: Any Response From Verizon / HTC About 2.1?

Mar 5, 2010

I've done a quick search (best I can do at work) to see if Verizon or HTC had any comments on the leakage, but found nothing. Anyone else heard/read anything from them regarding the leak?The more they keep quiet, the more I'm thinking they are just really kicking back waiting to see what the bugs/glitches are, before they 'officially' release it.

So i received my replacement eris in the mail today from verizon and did the OTA activation..stopped in the middle and took me to verizon rep, who immediately demanded my name, phone number and password.

They are going to overnight me a eris replacement again and now i have to send back a phone that was reported stolen.

HTC Droid Eris :: Verizon Nexus One

Jan 8, 2010

I was at my local verizon store an hour ago and was talking to the sales guy about my eris and possibly getting a new battery. After asking for the date for the 2.0+ update (he didnt have one) and the nexus one, he told me that the nexus one will in fact be called the nexus one for verizon (rather than the htc passion) and that it is already in their computer system as being available in february.

HTC Droid Eris :: Is This Worth Going To Verizon For A Replacement?

Jul 6, 2010

I did a factory reset last week after reading some of the posts about it here. I had some lag issues, and the Verizon tech also suggested that. I also did the *228 tip to reprogram the phone as was suggested. It was OK for a few days, but I'm having similar problems again. Before I go to Verizon, I thought I'd list them here and see what you good folks thought.

1) I still get terrible lag from time to time, and at all different times. I know that when I'm trying to do something with the battery low (under 25% lets say), its slow, but I chalk that off as understandable.

2) Sometimes when I send a text message out, I see that it takes at least 5 minutes to get sent. During this time, I do notice that time in the notification bar is anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes behind. Then, after a few minutes, catches back up to be in sync with the time shown on the HTC Sense widget on my home screen. BTW, that frozen time has occurred when the phone is just sitting there, not necessarily during a text message being sent, so SOMETHING is bogging it down.

3) Sometimes, and this has been increasing over the last few days, when I try to type something, either in a text message or in someone's contact info, I get the text box up and the virtual keyboard, but no text shows up at all when I'm typing. I see the characters that pop up, but nothing ends up in the text box. I have to exit out of that app and try again later. Very frustrating when you're trying to text someone and you have to wait 5-10 minutes to do it.

4) I know about the battery issues and how poor the battery life is. I've tried to remedy that by only checking my email, Twitter, and Facebook once per hour, but my battery still drains pretty fast. Today, for example, I took the phone off of the charger @ 7:30am. It was at 28% left @ noon! Granted, some of the issues that I describe above were going on and probably had a lot to do with that (clock lagging behind, texts taking 5 minutes to go out), but still, almost 75% of the battery gone after only 4 hours SUCKS! I've done the usual remedies (power the phone down then back on; battery pull; factory reset last week, etc.). It seems to help for a very short period of time but reverts back to the problems I describe above. So, is a trip to Verizon in my future? If they replace it, is a refurb acceptable to get? I've read varying stories ranging from "my refurb works like a charm" to "my refurb has the same issues as my old phone". I don't want to inherit the same problem, or someone else's problem. Am I basically stuck here until my "new every 2" is up in November 2011?

HTC Droid Eris :: Verizon's Future Projects

Aug 9, 2010

One of our Verizon Wireless sources has dropped a whole bunch of info in our laps. We�re talking intimate details of Verizon Wireless plans for the rest of 2010, 2011 and even some 2012 plans. Android tablets, LTE MiFi units, Android 3.0, video conferencing, and a whole lot more. Read on for the full details! In addition to the Motorola DROID and Motorola DROID X, we told Motorola will launch a new DROID handset, the Motorola DROID Pro. It is supposed to have a 1.3GHz CPU, 4 screen and global roaming capabilities. Estimated launch of November 2010, Motorola is working with Verizon on alab form- device that sort of looks like an old Motorola Q but features a full touchscreen and global roaming. It will run Android 2.2. Maybe this will be a lower cost, MOTOBLUR handset? There are a lot more Android invasions happening before the end of the year, we told. This includes a global Android device from both Samsung and HTC.Samsung is working on a 7 screen Android tablet with front-facing camera. Motorola is also working on a tablet as well, except it will sport a 10 screen, either 1GHz or 1.3GHz CPU, front-facing camera, and Android 3.0. Don expect the Motorola so soon though, as informed that while the launch was supposed to happen in December, Android 3.0 will probably hold up the release of that device and we should expect it around February 2011. Verizon Wireless is aiming and on track to have at least 75% of the country covered in LTE coverage by April 2012 There will be a Novatel LTE MiFi device available in January or February that will apparently support up to 10 simultaneous Wi-Fi users. Lastly, we told LTE data pricing will stick at month, though it unclear what the data allowance will be. (This is for data cards, not smart phones) Regardless of whether an iPhone comes to Verizon Wireless anytime soon, it obviously clear they are not slowing down with their huge Android push. With LTE coming up, and a major stable of high-performance smart phones, it seems like Verizon has positioned themselves to win. We see how the end of the year and 2011 shape up before making any concrete judgments, though. Did we get anyone excited?

I was following another site to see if the Eris was going to get rooted and I saw that a leaked update was discovered for the Eris. IT is suppose to be the one for January 22nd. It is not an Android update, just another update to fix any known bugs on the device. Has anyone on this forum tried it yet and if so what fixes did you notice.

I am including a few links to download it in case someone feels adventurous.

HTC Droid Eris :: Verizon Won't Change My Phone

Jul 16, 2010

So i just got off the phone with a customer service rep from Verizon and was telling them about my issues because i'm on my 3rd replacement phone, and the 3rd one that just got sent out today is even worser then the ones i had to have replace, i told the rep that i wanted a new model phone, and all they could tell me was that well we'll have to just replace it with the same model, and if you're wanting to get a new model phone you would have to pay for it.How are some of you members getting the Moto Droid without any charges?? Do you guys just get nice reps? Because the rep i got was just a D*ck he wouldn't listen to what i was trying to say and kept cutting me off.

HTC Droid Eris :: Chances Of Upgrade From Verizon?

Jul 1, 2010

I want to preface all of the following by stating I love the Eris. The only reason I didn't buy an Incredible at full price was because of the nice form factor. I love the hardware buttons for end and send. I"m now on my 4th phone. 1st had a trackball issue, had it replaced at the store the following day. The 2nd had a bad GPS chip (that's what they explained it as). It said I was in Florida, Alaska, and California when I was actually in Dallas. The 3rd had dialer lag issues. (I'm guessing this is common as my roommates has it as well). When placing a call, dialed or from a contact, it will sometimes take 2-5 minutes to actually load the calling app and place the call. I just received my 4th phone Tuesday, activated it yesterday, and today at work it decides to do the same lagging when making a call.I was standing out front of an office trying to get the location of my work order from a coworker. It took about 3.5 minutes to finally attempt to make the call. My new Eris barely has any applications installed as well. (Google Voice and Timeriffic is pretty much it) It happens way to frequently to be a signal issue. It happens at different times and in different places (I work for a school district across 4 cities so I travel between them a lot) I have to make a lot of important phone calls, sometimes time sensitive, and if it takes this much time to place one call then I can't do my job.Anyone have any advice, I'm now wanting to try a different phone. I would love another Eris, but I doubt it will work the way it should. Anyone know the policies about these types of cases?

HTC Droid Eris :: Keyboard Lag Explained By Verizon

Dec 24, 2009

I recently called Verizon about the keyboard lag in my phone. Although it doesn't skip anything when typing, it can annoy me at times. Verizon said to do a soft reset which actually solved the issue... for a day. I then called Verizon another time and the lady told me that this is just an issue with smart phones and that she is experiencing it with her ERIS, Droid, and Blackberry phone. She told me if I use my phone a lot (which I do) that I should do a soft reset every few days to keep it "smooth." I think this would be a good thing, but is this actually something that I should do? Anyway, I proceeded to call HTC just to see what they would say. I had nothing to lose. The man immediately told me in the middle of my question: "NO, there is no fix." I then asked if this could be fixed with updated software, and he did his little script about not being able to talk about future updates and rumors and how he can't talk about when android 2.0 will come out exactly (although I didn't ask). Both supports were great and I was very satisfied. I am posting this to answer any future searches and to ask a question. The question: Can this be fixed with software updates? I love posting on other forums that interest me via my phone and in the browser it is SO laggy and I can't even believe it. My dad's iPhone has no lag in the browser, but I guess the iPhone doesn't have a two year old processor. Thanks for reading this mess I wrote.
