Ok.. Before I say I give up and my phone and the docking station were a bad purchase, let me ask for some help here, since the forum seems to be pretty helpful. And help me with establishing the initial connection with my webtop dock.
I got my Motorola Atrix and the webtop docking station at August (2011).After finally succeeding to connect it all together - phone-keyboard-mouse-docking_station, I was quite happy every time I connected it and it worked properly.
My wife and I both have Atrix 4G phones. I frequently get a Popup window when I unplug the charger reminding me to unplug the charger. This happens both with my 12V to USB adapter plugged into my motorcycle and with the home charger from Motorola. Also, I lose the settings for my home wireless and have to re-enter everything. I've gotten notifications that I'm using up my data plan because I lose my wireless and emails then start downloading over the cell network without my knowing it. I'm about ready to get rid of the so called smart phone and go back to my basic cell phone.
For the last several weeks neither the WiFi nor the Bluetooth will turn on. When selecting to turn on WiFi is starts to turn on then stops and displays Error. About 75% of the time after attempting to turn on the WiFi the phone will reboot. I have factory reset the phone and the WiFi and Bluetooth will work once after the reset but once the phone sleeps neither WiFi nor Bluetooth will operate. This is even after a power down. I have checked my settings and can't find anything that would cause this.
I have seen people having several problems with sync'ing. My problem is probably a variation of the basic underlying problem.I got my Motoactv a couple of days ago. I did a workout, and then tried to sync it wirelessly. I tried several times, but each time it gave me a network error. So then I connected the device to the computer via USB and the sync was successful.The next day, I did a couple of workouts. This time both the wireless and USB syncs failed numerous times. After reading several other posts, I did a factory reset.I then did a workout, and tried the wireless sync, and that failed. I didn't try the USB sync at that time. I went to bed, and when I got up this morning, Motoacdtv said that the sync was successful. So sometime during the night, the wireless sync occurred. I then did another workout today, and then did a USB sync which was successful. Another workout, and then the wireless sync (without intervention) worked.
I'm trying to sync my phone with my MAC using USB. I have the latest Motocast s/w installed.I have no PIn set on the phone, I have USB debug disabled..when I plug in the phone the motocast usb screen launches but I can't see the phone like I used to under windows it just says"Havin Trouble Connecting..?".I see the device under Finder and can browse the SD card..
I recently purchased my ATRIX 2 and want to put information from my old phone on the ATRIX 2. My old phone was a HTC Tile 2. I have the information on MS Outlook and would like to synk it to my new phone. There is no app on the phone for Note
I just figured out how to use my mac to sync to my MOTOROLA ATRIX 4G. in itunes i made about 20 playlists since i have more music than space available, then i used the motoblur software to sync, only about 6 playlists went over but it says 4.6 gigabytes transferred and i had 10gb available so that doesn't explain where the rest of the music is, the error that pops up says only 12 songs won't transfer due to their file types....so why doesn't it all transfer?...furthermore not all songs are available for instance 1 artist had a few albums in the playlist but only 6 songs are there for that particular artist, some of these are not iTunes downloaded files either, they are mp3 not mp4 for instance...so it's a mixed bag of files from different sources so i can't peg it that for instance only iTunes purchased music works vs. music i converted from cd's eons ago.
Suddenly I can't sync Exchange Calendar (Exchange 2007) with my Atrix 4g (ATT network). I can sync my mail but not the calendar. Can somebody be able to point me to a right direction to resolve this issue. I have tried removing the Exchange from my Phone and also from my Exchange phone linkage. I am able to sync my Calendar with the another e-mail client(Can't remember/find the name of the app, Icon say EMail
I'm a brand new Atrix owner and am going nuts trying to figure out how to sync my outlook contacts into my Atrix Contacts.Motorola Media Link doesn't have Contacts as a Sync. choice. Phone Portal says I have no contacts and MotoBLUR is no
I cannot synch my new Atrix 4G with my ISP (Fairpoint Communications). I have my Fairpoint email acct. set up, as well as a gmail and Motoblur acct. as required during my phone set up. I have verified all of my server settings with the ISP. They are:
If I create calendar items on my PC using Outlook 2003, they sync to my Atrix running Android 2.3.4 without problems, but if I enter them on my Atrix (selecting the calendar that syncs, not the phone calendar), they never show up in my Outlook 2003 calendar.
fetch schedule set to manualunder accounts and my google account, i have data and sync unchecked for everythingwhy am i still getting email pushed or pulled to the phone?the notification is always the messaging icon, so i don't think it's gmail doing it.
I just purchased my Atrix phone yesterday. I am a complete newbie. At the store, the sales person moved my phone contacts from my old phone to the Atrix. When I got home I added my Facebook account and the app sync'ed my facebook friends to my contacts. Now I don't see any of the original contacts that were transfered when I purchased the phone.Is this a bug with the Facebook app, have the numbers been deleted or is there a setting that will display them?
I am having the following significant corporate sync issues with Contacts and Calendar after upgrading my Atrix to Gingerbread 2.3.4. 4.5.91.MB860.ATT.en, Calendar events entered on Atrix do not show up on Outlook (exchange server) through corporate sync. Events entered on Outlook do show up on Atrix. Events originally entered in Outlook and then modified on Atrix disappear in Outlook although they remain on Atrix. When I add a picture to a contact on the Atrix the "file as" disappears in Outlook. When I add the "file as" back to the contact in Outlook the picture disappears from the contact on the Atrix. This is very annoying as I rely on the pictures associated with the contacts for phone, emails and messaging. In addition this makes it difficult to find my contacts in Outlook.
I've been having a lot of trouble getting this done, and it's quite frustrating. I want to stream music from my computer to my Atrix phone so I can listen to my computer music library anywhere. That's all. All Motocast USB lets me do is sync my music to the SD card, which I DON'T want to do.

I just upgraded from a Samsung Galaxy to an Atrix 2. All my contacts are stored on my corporate exchange server. I had no trouble setting up my Atrix 2 for corporate sync, and all my e-mails, calendar appointments, and contacts came down to my phone quickly.
However, none of my contacts have pictures. I have searched the forums and found an article telling me to go to the accounts menu to select which account pictures should come from, but there is no such menu on my phone.
What do I need to do to get contact pictures on my phone ? I administer the phones for my corporation, and this is the only smart phone I have ever encountered that did not show contact pictures (Samsung, HTC, Iphone, etc, etc).
I've had the phone for around two weeks and so far about every few days I get the "unable to connect" notification regarding my corporate sync account through Motoblur. The latest incident was this morning. When I woke up I noticed that I didn't have the indicator light blinking on the outside of the phone when I know that I should've received e-mails throughout the night. When I went to go check it, I got the spinning circle for a minute or two and then "unable to connect" or whatever the connection error says. In this instance I was connected to my wireless network at home and my web browser was moving along very quickly so I know it wasn't the means to connect to my mail server that was the problem. Simply shutting off my phone and restarting fixed the connection issue this morning. The time before that, I received the error and then left the phone on my desk for about 20 minutes and it reconnected itself.
I would like to know if it is possible to sync my text messages from my Atrix4g to my laptop(Sony Vaio) using Motoblur? I have noticed that Motoblur does allow for syncing Podcast, Videos, Photos, and Music, however; I have not found the ability to sync my text Messages. Please tell me if it is possible to do this, and if not , is there any other way to tranfer my text messages from my Atrix4g to my laptop? I once had a Nokia and used OVI suite to sync text message to my laptop. This was a very usefull feature as it provided a means of permanently keeping all text mesages.
I've been trying to sync phone to get music from Itunes. Tried Double twist... when connected my computer says there was a problem and it had to close. Send report...blah blah blah. Okay... so this didn't work. I down loaded tunesync..looks like a great app... somehow I cannot not get it to sync my playlists or music whether using wifi or usb connection. Says it's searching for connection.
I originally returned the atrix because it would drop the wifi connection every few minutes eventhough I was sitting next to my router. My iphone, ipad and home computers did not exhibit this behavior. I was thinking of trying the phone again after the new maintenance updates but it looks like this is still an issue. I wanted to bring this to the attention of Motorola. The following thread at XDA shows that many people are having this issue.
