HTC Droid : Having To Switch From My Eris - Can't Afford It

Jul 29, 2010

It's too bad, really. I love the phone. I just can't afford it the data plan anymore. So, tomorrow or Saturday, I am switching to the Samsung Reality. From what I heard, it's a good phone, and it has quite a few features I have come to love on the Eris.

Hopefully, when I get a job during the school year, I will be able to afford the data again. I plan on keeping my Eris and going back to it when I have a bit more money.

I just wanted to say, until I return, thanks for all your help with this phone and the tips to make it not suck. I'll probably lurk on here and post maybe once every so often. This really is one of the best communities I have found on the Interwebz.

HTC Droid : Having To Switch From My Eris - Can't afford it


HTC Droid Eris :: Automatically Switch Over To New Call?

Dec 4, 2009

Just got my Eris last night and am trying to figure it out. I was using a BB curve so this is different. I am following all battery tips but have a different question. When I am on a call if someone beeps in it is automatically switching me over to this new call. How do I stop that?

HTC Droid Eris :: Switch From 3g To 1x Due To Poor Reception

Dec 24, 2009

I just picked up the Droid Eris and am having serious reception issues when at work, which is here I am most of the time. I upgraded from an LG Chocolate, and did miss or have a dropped call for 2 years. After getting the Droid Eris I missed 3 calls the first day with the phone in my office. I receive adequate 1x coverage, but only spotty 3g coverage. My co-workers all have iPhones and have the same issue, but they have the ability to manually turn off the 3g, which then allows them to send and receive calls and texts without any problems using the at&T 1x network. Is there a way (or an app) that allows a user to turn off the 3g and only receive 1x coverage for the Droid Eris? I don't think turning off the mobilenetwork accomplishes this goal, but would like to know for sure.

Motorola Droid :: Contemplating Eris To Droid Switch

Jan 6, 2010

First, I've read all the "I switched from Eris to Droid" posts. Found them to be informative, most a bit dated.

Second, I've had my Eris since the first day it came out. I went to the store expecting to buy a Droid on the first day it came out. It happened to be right when I needed a new phone, I didn't have an existing phone or plan, so I was free do to what I wanted. Didn't know anything about an Eris. Went to the store and was unimpressed by the Droid's keyboard. Plus it felt blocky and I didn't like that the sliding keyboard felt like it was going to slide out all the time. Picked up the Eris and between the size, the form factor, and Sense UI's 7 screens and widgets I decided that the $100 savings was money well pocketed. It didn't take me long to start getting annoyed with it though. The battery life, the lag and other issues mounted. Then Sense kept re-booting, as did the phone. So I went back to the store inside my 30 days. I got a new one and an "extension" on my return ability.

The second phone was great...for a while. Lag returned, in a big way. In the meantime, the Droid got 2.0.1 and is getting 2.1 soon. The Eris should have 2.1 by the end of the month, but I'm not convinced it will solve my issues. I was in the mall again today and spent another 15 minutes or so with the Droid. The screen has always impressed me, but the speed just blows me away. I hate the fact that it takes Handcent 10 seconds to load, the fact that the landscape keyboard is slow in loading, then laggy. That the menus, etc. are just slow. Slow, slow, slow, and did I mention, slow? I've tweaked this phone 9 ways from Sunday, have tried all manner of task killers, task panel, startup manager, etc. I've cleared cache, re-booted, etc. This phone, in current form, lags. Now 2.1 is coming with Sense, and that may help. But the Droid's screen....oh, that screen.So here are my questions:

1) I hated the keyboard, and after using the phone for about an hour and a half in total, still don't like it. I know you don't have to use it, are there those that liked it better with time?
2) Does the sliding keyboard "loosen up" with time ? It didn't feel impressively locked closed to begin with, I don't want to feel like it's going to fall open in my hand.
3) How's the battery life? With my Eris, I can get a full day of GOOD usage without having to re-charge. The Droid?
4) I've heard issues with phone sound quality. Are those common, or isolated?
5) How's the screen in sunlight?

HTC Eris : Newbie Seeking Post-root / How Do I Switch To A Different ROM

Aug 2, 2010

I'm sorry for being a newbie with all this root stuff, but I've been searching and haven't been able to find a "set" guideline on what to do with my just-rooted Eris. So I've gotten my phone rooted with the DUMMIES phone-only guide and rom'ed with Evil Eris 4.0, but I don't know what exact measures to take from there to install Engtools, OC, flash new roms, etc. I just want to be careful with everything in order to have the best possible root experience D: Basically, I don't know what "pushing" is and how it's done. I think the first thing I want to do is install Engtools, following this:

http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-eris/121597-how-install-engineering-bootloader.html

But, is amon's recovery already installed from the dummies phone-only root? Do I just vol-up+power-on when the phone is off to start it up? After that, what do I do with the codes? How do I push?

Also, after pushing all these files and getting Engtools installed, do I start OC'ing and whatnot? What do people normally do after rooting for performance improvements and other handy-dandy things?

Finally, how do I switch to a different ROM? Do I have to undo one ROM first?

Motorola Droid 2 :: Wi Fi Switch Flickering

Aug 20, 2010

I recently purchased the Droid 2 today & noticed when I turn on the Wi Fi in settings. It was turning itself on & off, on & off rapidly for about a minute. Eventually it was stable. This was unusual. So I went back to the Verizon store. Got a replacement. While in the store. The rep turned on Wi Fi too see if it was an isolated incident. Same thing started happenning with the new replacement. Wi Fi going bananas. On, then off repeatly for about a minute. He placed a trouble ticket & gave me the new replacement. He also said this is an KNOWN ISSUE.

Motorola Droid :: Crackberrian To Switch

Dec 4, 2009

I have a friend who has a Curve for work, and a Pearl for personal use... His favorite of the two is the Pearl, as he for some reason loves the keyboard... He tells me he can type at 70+ words per minute on it, which I can believe since I type around 50wpm on the droid keyboard. He wants a new form factor for his phone, but he does use the BBs for work, and thinks they are the bee's knees... How do I convince him that for his personal phone, the Droid is the best choice for him to upgrade to?

His arguments thus far have been:

1. He has flash on his Blackberry.
2. His web browser is fast.
3. He can connect to 5 or 6 or however many exchange servers he wants.
4. It's the most stable OS for phones no matter what.
5. It's the most secure OS for phones no matter what.
6. Apps are more customizable.
7. The time of day radio signal quality can even be customized for better call quality depending on solar radiation...

Motorola Droid 2 :: Cant Switch Between Home / Launcher Pro?

Oct 8, 2010

OK so I have launcher pro plus as my home replacement, but I wanted to go back to the stock home launcher and I cant. I tried home switcher, also tried clear home defaults too, nothing has been working. I went into manage apps and neither 1 is set as a default, so I cant clear the default. I tried a force stop on launcher pro but that didn't work either. I don't wanna un install launcher pro bc I have it set up nicely, I just want to set up the stock home for fun and giggles.

Motorola Droid X :: Themes - Roms - Have Tried Out Or Switch Between

Oct 4, 2010

Two or three months ago, I'd heard all about rooting, but was "afraid" to do it as it looked complicated. Then came along 1-click rooting. I did it and was hooked.

As soon as 2.2 OTA came out, I had to re-root. It wasn't quite as easy to do as the 1-click, but in retrospect, the one-step root for 2.2 was very, very easy.

Then came the roms. Thanks to the help of D13 and a few others, I tried my first rom. R2D2. I didn't like things about it, but I did it.

I also bricked for the first time and was shown how to do the sdf file. It worked fine. In fact, I bricked again a few days ago, as I'm playing around with this stuff, a lot, and I might have forgotten to select "mount system" first. No problem. SDF plus back ups cover a multitude of sins!

To make a long story short, I now have played with about 5 or 6 different themes. Some I won't use anymore, such as R2D2 because it wouldn't work with swype, but I have several backed up zip files to switch around.

I think I have so much that I have gone overboard, have become addicted and need serious help! I love this stuff!

Here's a list of my zipped backups:

1) 928Droid Black Glass X: This is probably my favorite one, at this point. It is the most "finished", meaning that I have it just the way I want it.

2) Big DX Serenity (Red): This is the most fun. I like the way the dev has modded apps, especially LPP (as I purchased that). It's pretty much finished, the way I like it. I have a bit more work to do, but I like it a lot.

3) RubiX Focused 0.3:: This is the newest one. I tried it yesterday, but didn't like it because it was too dark and it wouldn't sync my google calendar and it was waaay to dark to view.

I came across the zip files to fix this and how to install them. I like this muuuch better, now. I simply cannot believe how fast this ROM boots up. 10 seconds from the Android screen!

This is probably the least developed, for me. I mean, I don't have much set up, but I can see myself loving this one too!

4) 2.2 ota rooted 2.3.15

5) 2.2 2.3.15 deodexed.

I love being able to do this and I want to thank everyone who has helped me. I'm also happy that I've begun to help others, considering how very, very simple all of this is, once you understand it.

So, am I the only addict here? It's okay if I am. Does anyone else have a lot of themes and roms backed up on their SD? (Perhaps I should further back these zips up on my PC, no?

Motorola Droid :: Easier Way To Switch Between Applications?

Nov 9, 2009

I am trying to figure out how to switch between apps? The expanded manual says to hole the "home" button down from the Home screen. This works to an extent but does not show all apps I have running? For instance I emailed my selt the link to the extended manual from Motorola.
http://www.motorola.com/staticfiles/Support/US-EN/Mobile%20Phones/DROID-by-Motorola/US-EN/Documents/Static-Files/DROID_UG_Verizon_68000202474a.pdf

I click on that link and it downloads the pdf then opens QuickDocs to read it. But if I want to go back to the Home screen for something I can't get back to the Quick Docs app to continue reading from where I left off? I have to go thru the whole process over again and then it tries to download the manual again, so I cancel it and click on the previous one downloaded listed above the download. Then it opens QuickDocs again , but I then have to scroll thru all the pages I read to get to the page I left off at. What gives? It is time consuming and annoying!

Motorola Droid :: Way To Switch From Curve To Phone?

Nov 12, 2009

The droid looks like a great fun device, but I use my mobile device to help me be productive in a sales position. I have some issues keeping me from pulling trigger on a droid. I use mobile device mainly for work related tasks (phone, email, calendar, etc). Any comments would be greatly appreciated. If anyone else has moved from BB to Droid and has other things they miss (besides BBM) please respond.- Lack of email search for exchange email. Almost an instant deal breaker. Is this in the works to be fixed? - Ability to operate with one hand (phone, email, etc). Very easy to dial a contact from BB home screen simply by typing their name. - Speed of typing. I send emails from my BB even when sitting in front of computer. The BB is very easy to use and type on. - Look up internal users on BES. Great for getting contact info of person at company that I don't have in my address book.
