Motorola Droid X :: My 3G Coverage Is Terrible - Weak Signal Or No Coverage At All

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?

HTC Droid Eris : Absolutely Terrible Coverage All Time / 3g Connection Is Always Awful

May 1, 2010

Does anyone else have absolutely terrible coverage all the time? About 90% of the time I have one or no bars of service. And my 3g connection is always awful. I'm starting to think its just the Eris because I've had other phones with Verizon and have had very good coverage with them.

Motorola Droid 2 :: National Coverage Not Available / MMS

Oct 28, 2010

I have been having issues lately sending pic messages on my D2, about the past month or so.I use Handcent most the time and I just get the spinning circle.If I switch over to the default messaging app, I get the error "national coverage not available". I did the *228 and updated both my roaming profile (opt 2) and then called again and reprogrammed my phone (opt 1).I haven't changed anything in my settings with networks, access, etc.Anyone else experiencing this? I did a search on the forums but no results were found.

Motorola Droid X :: National Access Coverage Not Available

Sep 9, 2010

I'm sick of factory resetting my phone every time I see that message just so I can send pictures. Sending text is fine but when inserting pictures and sending it that message always pops up.This is the 3rd time its happen and the only way to fix it is to reset it!(only to break a week or so later) Even when I call customer service there only advice to reset it. I really need help and I was wondering if anyone out there found a fix.

Motorola Droid X :: Send Mms - National Access Coverage Not Available

Jul 18, 2010

Just got my DX friday in the mail and I didn't notice the problem until today when I first tried to send a mms to friends. I CAN'T. I've attached a picture to both the stock messenger and handcent but it's not able to go through. Stock messenger gives me an error or "National access coverage not available". I've called VZW to make sure all my settings are up to date, that there are no blocks, but nothing. Tried *228 to update roaming and also battery pulled twice after they reset some things on their end.

Motorola : Droid X Scares - Apple Tried To Cover Bad AT&T Coverage

Jul 5, 2010

I have been using a LG Voyager (Christmas gift) and a 32gb Ipod touch for the last 2 years biding my time, loathing my 2 year contract and waiting for the release of the Iphone 4 but then the droid X was announced and have spent my time since obsessing over previews, reviews, specs, hands on Youtube videos, news articles and everything Android. And this is the conclusion I have come to.

I have been following Droid X news and reviews hardcore for the last 3 weeks as well as Apple/Iphone 4 news.
Apple is desperately trying to maintain the crown while the castle walls crumble around them. The Droid X truly is the first of I'm sure many Android contenders coming within the next 2 years. Unlike the Evo 4g it is on the Verizon network and packs more features and stability than any other phone with the exception of the Iphone that finishes first only by a spider hair.

In the past 2 weeks Apple has dispatched "rumor spys" to announce "IPHONE COMING TO VERIZON!!"

Yeah well we've been hearing that for a year now. But I am actually certain this time the rumors ARE true. But the point is the usually secretive "Apple" all the sudden has leaks just in time for the Droid X release.

Today I read that Apple has said that the antenna issue isn't the problem. They say it was a "flaw" with Iphone software displaying better reception (more bars) than there actually was and that when bridging the wifi and cell antennas touching the two at once users were displaying the "actual" coverage. Well this tells us two things.
1. Apple knew that AT&t had sub par coverage that wouldn't be able to handle data heavy phones and it would show.
2. Apple tried to cover the bad AT&T coverage by making the coverage look better than it is.
Why would they do that you ask? Well think about it. When the Iphone 1g was first released there weren't many "smart phones" that also included the multimedia hand held entertainment aspect. You had Blackberry that did a lot of innovative business things but lacked any real fun. Then along came the admittedly awesome, futuristic, and fun Iphone with tons of apps and features.

The phone was expensive for its time and no matter how much the phone could do it would be hard to do all the great things in less than a month especially on a completely new un matured product. So imagine you go buy this Iphone and you know you have 30 days to see whether you like it but the first thing you notice is all the places the phone doesn't get reception. The last thing Apple wanted was bad press at a time when the whole world was lauding their greatness. Another news story that broke today was that an app maker had figured out how to hack into the Itunes App Market and charge random Itunes users for his products thus launching 40 of his apps to top status. Apple just got around to fixing this problem even though it has been ongoing for some time. Well all the secrets are coming out now. And Apple is scrambling while the bad news keeps coming and they watch their stock plummet as fast as Ilemmings off a cliff and into the ocean. But none of this recent disaster is Apple's biggest problem. The problem is while all this bad Apple press is lingering Iphone competitors sporting an ever improving Android operating system are releasing innovative envelope pushing products every month while Apple and mac fanatics will be waiting at least 1 1/2 to 2 years respectively for Apples next Iphone hardware update that will again be adding new "original features" to compete with the technological competition that came since it's last game of catch up.

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?

Motorola Droid :: Having Weak WIFI Signal

Motorola Milestone :: Music Hiccups When Network Coverage Changes / Sort This?

Feb 17, 2010

Just like many of you, I'm running 2.0.1 (build 14) on my Milestone and I'm using it as a music player while in public transport. This works fine, if it wasn't for the horrible hiccups that occur everytime the network coverage either drops out or comes back.

Basically everytime this happens (H/3G/regular coverage makes no difference) my music freezes for 0.5-1s, making it a horrible listening experience, especially when you're in the subway or train. It appears that enabling flight mode does resolve this, but since it's also a phone (and internet device), this just doesn't seem like a solution to me.

Motorola Droid X :: "National Coverage Not Available" When Sending MMS / Fix It?

Nov 30, 2010

So, it seems that several of the Android phones have been having a problem sending MMS, either through Handcent or stock text messaging app. I have never had a problem receiving MMS, just couldn't send.

Worked with VZW tech support for hours. Things we tried:
Checked all switch settings (their end)
*228, option 2
turn off phone (battery pull)
Checked, unchecked, rechecked all settings on phone
Ended up that a factory reset resolved the problem. Problem is, I had completed a factory reset not more than a couple of months prior trying to fix some of the 2.2 issues.

Motorola Droid :: Wifi On - Cell Signal Weak - Fast Battery Drain

Nov 21, 2009

I think I figured out why sometimes my Droid stays on for 1.5 days and sometimes after 6 hour of just being idle the battery is drained.

When wifi is turned on an connected to a network, the cellular signal is way low and it just drains the battery.

HTC EVO 4G :: 4G Clearwire Coverage Map

May 18, 2010

So I was looking at the Sprint 4G coverage map and they have pretty much all of my city blanketed as having 4G coverage but I wondered just how realistic that was so I went to the Clearwire website to look at their coverage map.CLEAR WiMAX 4G Coverage Area Map.I think this gives a much more "clear" view of just how your coverage will be. For intance, half of my block (luckily the half where my apartment resides) is listed as having Best Clear Coverage whereas the other half just has Clear Coverage.Just thought it would be useful for everyone to be able to have a better idea of your 4G coverage. Unless I'm wrong and Sprint and Clear's coverage are not necessarily the same thing.

Android :: Going Without 3G Coverage

Jun 8, 2010

I've been following the Android OS and admiring it for some time lately,but I don't yet own a device.The one I have my eye on later this month is the Dell Streak.My question for you experts is this : Is it worth it to use an Android device without any 3g plan at all?
I basically don't care about facebook or twitter in the slightest.I would just like to use the device as a powerful iPod touch to play videos, music, games, emulators, navigate with one of the offline apps, update my calendars and lists and take pictures / videos on occasion.And when its time to finally crash at the hotel, then get on the wifi and check my email and do my browsing.So if I were to try and use it this way, would I be missing out on anything important?Do all the major apps require 3g coverage? Can the device even be used without a 3g plan if its sold straight off of dell's website?

HTC EVO 4G :: 4G Coverage For People

May 24, 2010

I've got a friend with an Evo, and both the Sprint store and his home show to be in a 4G service area. Home is supposed to have the 'best' coverage, and the Sprint store is supposed to have 'good' coverage.Neither location has ANY usable 4G coverage on the Evo. It cuts in and out with barely any signal at all, confuses the phone and never gets data easily until you turn off 4G. BTW the 4G adapters for computers work in both locations, albeit with low signals. The Evo, unusable.My friend went to Evo training and asked about the non-existent 4G coverage. The trainer said that all they can say is 'we can't guarantee 4G, 3G or 2G coverage.' WOW, that sounds just like AT&T when I had the iPhone 3G.

HTC EVO 4G :: Roaming Coverage Area

Jun 25, 2010

The same thing happened on my Hero, so it's Sprint related. I rarely leave my house. When I do, I'm never more than 3 miles from home. My entire surrounding area is in Sprints coverage area. Ninety-eight percent of the time I'm steadily on the 3G. Every now and then though, while still at home, my phone changes over to roaming for no rhyme or reason! I know Sprint won't throw a hissy fit over the calls and data (unless over the 300mb), but why is my phone doing this? I just checked my account and it says I've used 7760kb of data while roaming.

HTC EVO 4G :: Sprint Bad Coverage Area

Apr 21, 2010

I think the Sprint coverage in my area might suck sweaty donkey balls. I really wanted to go with Sprint b/c of the EVO, my husband gets a really good discount with them through his work (22% of monthly bill and 25% off accessories), and I don't need to possibly strap a mattress on my back to pay the damn bill. I think? AT&T and Verizon have much better coverage here, and you also get a hefty bill for all that coverage. He does also get a good discount with AT&T as well but they make it so you have so sign your first born over with what they charge.

HTC EVO 4G :: Full Body Coverage

Jun 13, 2010

I stumbled upon this today. I never heard of a clear full body cover skin for cell phones. I'm interested in getting it for my EVO. Anyone already have it? how does it work on the edges? And, was it easy/difficult to install? I've been searching the web for a how-to video but haven't found one.

HTC EVO 4G :: Is Coverage Really Deciding Factor?

Apr 16, 2010

The whole idea of the EVO 4G is being able to take advantage of the faster speed for internet/videos/applications etc. Looking at the intended coverage map for the next year or so it doesn't appear the 4G network will cover my home area. While the network will be in the NYC area sooner than later, I only spend 25 hours a week in the city, and when I get home I won't be able to take advantage of the EVO network. It remains to be seen how long it will take Sprint to roll out this network to other cities in the surrounding suburbian areas.Correct me if I'm wrong but, if the device doesn't connect with the 4G network, it defaults to a 3G network? If that's the case, then switching to a device with limited usage for me personally doesn't make sense until they get up and running in more areas, which I imagine will take at least 2 years.

HTC Magic : How To Get Coverage (3g / Otherwise) Throughout UK On Vodafone?

May 17, 2009

I have just been browsing around for phones to replace my knackered Sony Ericsson and have been incredibly tempted by a smartphone. Initially it was between the g1 and the iPhone, but the styling of the g1 really didnt get me going... Now I have discovered the gorgeous Magic and just want to know a few things. How are people finding coverage (3g and otherwise) throughout the UK on Vodafone? Also, I heard someone mention a limit on data transfer, any ideas what sort of limit is imposed?

HTC EVO 4G :: How Quickly Sprint Can Roll Out Coverage

Jun 4, 2010

Call this an experimentation of sorts. I want to see how quickly Sprint can roll out 4g coverage. Vote Yes or No as to whether or not you have 4g coverage in YOUR AREA ONLY. The poll will be open for 1 week. Next month I'll post a new poll along with the results of the previous poll. I'll do this for a few months to track their progress.

HTC EVO 4G :: Slow 3G Coverage After MicroSD Upgrade

Nov 9, 2010

I just recently bought a new EVO and have absolutely loved it. However, I just began having an issue with my 3g connection which happens to coincide with a microSD upgrade. I recently switched out the 8gb mSD for a SanDisk 16gb class 4 card. Well since then (24hours or so), I have had weird issues with very slow 3G coverage. My internet takes forever to load pages (if at all.) Mail, facebook, weather take forever to sync (the htc weather widget will actually display my hometown as "current location") However, streaming video through SprintTV & YouTube seems to work fine without any stutter. So, my question is: Does this sound like an issue with my 3G network or is the card switch causing these issues? Incidentally, everything works fine when using Wi-Fi. I will test my 4G coverage at work today to see if that works at all or not.

HTC Hero :: Need Phone Coverage For GPS To Work?

Jan 3, 2010

I have observed with my HTC Hero that it needs phone coverage for the GPS to work. For applications like the GPS tracker and my position they did not work in places where there was no phone coverage. Could some one please let me know whether this is the case or do I need to change my settings for the GPS to work independently of Phone coverage.

Android :: Emma Code Coverage

We're using android for some software engineering courses at our university. The students should produce code coverage reports for their unit tests, so we looked at the android-2.0 SDK which says on the release page:

"Adds new Ant build system with support for Emma instrumentation projects (code coverage)."

However I'm unable to find any documentation or examples for this. Does someone have more information about it?

HTC EVO 4G : Sprint Coverage In Rhode Island?

May 27, 2010

I looked at their maps, and it's mostly dark green. However, my home address in Cranston is "fair"... That shouldn't be a problem right? I've got AT&T now and the coverage is great. Last time I had Sprint (or was it still Nextel?) was when the i860 was new. I remember some dropped calls or having no bars. But that was YEARS ago. People say it's changed for the better. I guess I have 30 days to make that choice, but to be honest I know that once I have the phone I probably wont care if I have 2 or 3 bars out of 5.
