Motorola Droid :: GPS Always On Notification Area / Cause Of This - Shut It Off?

May 18, 2010

The GPS icon is now always on my notification area. This has only been happening for the past couple of days. Previously, it would come on when in use (e.g. using Google Maps or some other application that was using the GPS) and then would disappear when the application terminated.

I used Taskiller to terminate all running applications, but the GPS icon was still on after I killed ALL of the running applications. So, I'm assuming that it's not because of a new, or updated, application I installed.

It doesn't appear to be causing any problems, but wonder if it's really on and draining the battery more than necessary. Also, it was a reminder to me that I'd left an application running that was using the GPS.

Is anyone else seeing this?

Motorola Droid :: Way To Install Theme / Hide Notification Area?

Dec 27, 2009

Just a quick question, is there a way, with out installing a theme or Home replacement, to remove the text under the icons, so its just an icon only? also, is there a way to hide the notification area? I thought it would be cool to tap the screen once, and have the batter/time/date/notification area drop down from the top like how it is right now with the stock version, then tap the screen again and it hides the notification area. Wouldn't that be cool? Any way to do this or does something do this already?

Motorola Droid X :: Media Link - Freezes Up - License In Notification Area

Aug 11, 2010

Works nicely for my X. I just downloaded about 8 gigs of my music. It sync'd my videos also. Works well, but you have to select what you want to sync in the settings. Took me a while to figure it out. Also, if you try to sync a DRM protected MP3, the X gets cranky and kind of freezes up and displays a get license in the notification area.

HTC Droid Eris : Can't Find A Duplication Of Icon In Notification Area

Apr 17, 2010

I hate posting a query about something so seemingly simple. I googled around and can't find a duplication of the icon in the notification area of my new (since January) Eris running 1.5 stock.

I'll describe it: it in most ways resembles a little musical note, perhaps an eighth-note, but with a diagonal slash through it (not in a circle as the "no" sign).

Nothing running in the background, music-wise. On page 47 of the user guide/manual is a list of all stock icons; it is not there. No new apps have been installed for weeks.Any ideas as to what it could be?

Android :: Create A Notification That Appear In Ongoing Area Of The Bar

Aug 17, 2010

I am trying to create a notification that will appear in the "ongoing" area of the notification bar (like WeatherBug).

Here is the code that I am using:

PendingIntent intent = PendingIntent.getActivity(lastContext, 0, notifyIntent, PendingIntent.FLAG_UPDATE_CURRENT | Notification.FLAG_ONGOING_EVENT | Notification.FLAG_NO_CLEAR)

From what I understand, FLAG_NO_CLEAR, should also prevent the notification from being cleared by pressing the Clear button, this is also not working.

HTC Legend :: Notification Area Swipedown Not Working

Aug 19, 2010

I had reception issues on my Legend so vodafone sent me a new (well, pre-owned/refurbished) one today. I haven't had it long enough to test the reception issues but I am unable to bring the notification area at the top of the screen down by swiping my finger. I can click 'menu>notifications' from the homescreen and that brings it up but I can't swipe it down - most odd. Although I have seen it come down about 30 seconds after I swipe it on occasion. This was the case with the old firmware and still is with the new. I've done soft and hard resets and it's still the case. Everything else on the phone works perfectly as far as I can see.

Android :: Recently Used Apps In Notification Area

Sep 19, 2010

Does anyone know of an app that achieves the display of recently used apps in the notification dropdown area?Essentially, performing the same function that a long press on the home button does, but obviously eliminating the need to press a button. I've been looking for something like this for a good while, and was pleasantly surprised to see HTC had included this very function in their latest version of Sense.... when I went to the HTC London meet last week. unfortunately, the HTC guys demoing informed me there is currently no way to obtain this feature for current handsets.

Sprint HTC Hero :: GPS And EV Symbols In Notification Area / What This Is?

Oct 25, 2009

I live in an area where there is solid EVDO coverage yet my Hero doesnt display the 'EV' over the signal bars like it says it should according to the manual. My old Pre would tell me if I was on Sprint's EVDO network or 1x. Am I missing something?

Also, I constantly have a symbol of a satellite dish with flashing incoming network waves on my notification area even though I have turned off GPS and location services. I can't find anything about this symbol in the manual. anyone know what this is?

Motorola Droid X :: Random Shut Down

Jul 29, 2010

My DroidX has been rooted for a couple of days now and I'm loving that new features that I can utilize. However, I didn't check my phone for a couple of hours and when I took it out to send a text I realized that my phone was shut off. Has anybody encountered this same issue? I didn't even have to hold my power button to start it back up. I simply pressed it like I was waking it up and it showed the power up symbol.Update: When starting up, it did not show the Motorola symbol but skipped ahead to the "Droid" sign.

General :: Notification Area Missing Mounted Micro SD Card?

Jul 6, 2013

I have a TF101g transformer. I just recently rooted it and installed Jelly bean with EOS-tf101-20130617-120.zip and gapps_4.2.2_TF101_20130323b.zip Everything seems to be working fine except with the notification area failing to show mounted sd, micro sd and usb drives. When they are inserted into the tablet I see in the notification area that the system is scanning the micro sd card but after it is mounted nothing is there. As a result it is difficult to unmount them except for going to settings and then storage device and then unmount them from there.

With Ice cream android, when I put in any sd cards, the notification area would have the sd cards listed. I could open it with a folder and browse it and I could unmount it also when finished with it.

What I must do to get the sd card listed in the notification area?

Motorola Droid X :: Shut Down - Completely Unresponsive

Nov 11, 2010

After 10 years of Blackberry I made the switch to a Droid X six days ago.

Twice in the last 6 days my phone has shut down and become completely unresponsive.

The first time was the first time I powered it off. When I attempted to power it on the phone would only show me the Motorola logo and do nothing else.

A battery pull fixed it.

The second time it went dead was as I unhooked it from my computer USB...it's a PC and I "dismounted" the phone manually first...but then...nothing....

A battery pull fixed it again.

So. That's a long way of asking: is two 'dead' experiences in 6 days leading to two battery pulls normal? Should I take it back while I can?

Motorola Droid :: Alarm Not Turn / Shut Off

Nov 7, 2009

Had a problem with my alarm clock this morning. It went off @ one of the alarm times I have (although I could swear it wasn't checked to be on for today). But then I could not shut it off. Tried hitting nearly ever button both physical and virtual and the damned alarm wouldn't stop. I eventually just shut it off and turned it back on and that did the trick. Did I miss a step in how to turn alarm off?

Motorola Droid :: 3G/1x Switching Back / Forth Area?

Nov 16, 2009

I'm a noob to the whole smartphone with data thing. Is it normal for my phone to switch in and out of 3G in an area that the verizon map shows as being a 3G area? At home I seem to stay on the 3G fairly constantly, but at work (which is at the edge of coverage) and especially while driving I seem to drop 3G quite a bit. It makes playing Slacker in the car not worth while. Just wondering if this is "just the way it is" or if I may have an issue.
