I have crap (edit) service out here in el cerrito. At&t was nice enough to give me a microcell. However for whatever reason, my phone doesn't connect (sometimes). No biggie, I just tap my airplane mode widget to reset my connection. It just happenedThis time when I was reconnecting, t-mobile popped up in my left hand service provider area. It was there for about 10 seconds. Then went to the red x. After that I was connected to my microcell. What was that all about.
I'm using the MML 1.5 and the latest drivers from the Motorola site for the Atrix.Running XP SP3,I was able to sync with my Atrix a few time, but MML doesn't work consistantly at all. Any advise in order for this to work properly. I've tried removing and reinstalling with no avail.I've also put my phone in each of the USB modes without luck..
The first time I tried it out it worked fine and now my Atrix is paired with the mouse, but now the mouse will continue to flash blue (which I belive means that it is searching for a device?) but will not connect.
I have just done an update on my phone. Now it can't access the Internet and when I connect the USB cable it doesn't recognise the connection however, it does show the phone as recharging. Does anyone know if there is a problem with the upgrade or is unique to my service provider (Telstra) in Australia?
I purchased a Atrix2 sometime back but just recently was looking to connect it to my PC to download some stuff onto the phone.When I connect my phone to the PC (windows 7 64 bit), the PC is not able to install the required drivers for my motorola phone. It fails with an error that says failed to install something called "ADB" drivers. I've tried installing the drivers from the page below to no effect :http://www.motorola.com/Support/US-EN/SupportHomepage/Software_and_Drivers/USB-and-PC-Charging-DriversAlso if I put my phone in the "Charge only" mode, on the phone I see the "lighting" icon continously coming and going on the battery icon in the notification bar at the top of the phone.
I have really nothing done! After I have received the phone. I have used it some time... I have installed some free apps. Then the battery was empty after some hours. I didn't charged it! After a while the phone has turned by it self off. I used the usb cable to charge him.
I tried to turn the phone on, but there was no reaction. I only could seen that the green led goes on and off after a time when I pressed on the on/off button. I thought that battery was completely discharged, so I left it to charge.
After an hour, tried to turn the phone on, BUT it doesn't start! I really don't know what it is.. Only the green led goes on and off when I press on the button. Also when I put the usb cable in to the phone, the green led goes on and the after a while off.
I bought the Atrix 2 today.Initial thoughts, the screen looks really nice, the soft rubber back feels better then the Atrix 1. I got the same internet speeds as the Atrix 1. Camera button convenient though pressing it doesnt launch camera app. On the Atrix 2 internal memory isnt accessible, even hooking up to pc you cant browse it, so you need a SD card to put music and videos, etc on it.HDMI mirroring worked as expected. I think the MHL mirroring from the SGS2 was better quality though.
I go to the Phone Dialer and make a call. Few seconds and or a 1/2 ring and then the phone goes "Boop" and reverts to the lock screen. Sometimes the slider will not work or the Lock screen freezes, until you reset via the power/reset button on the back of the phone.
Have an Atrix 4G by At&T. I plug my HDMI cable into the TV (in an attempt to show video, pics, anything) and I get a Motorola logo flashing around only. The Entertainment Center shows up on the phone. If I press anything on the Entertainment Center it disappears, my TV goes blank for a few seconds, then the Motorola logo comes back. I can get the Entertainment Center back thru the pull down, but any selection, it starts all over again.
I have a few problems with the Atrix 2 and curious if others see these things.First...I really like this phone. I like the size, the weight, the speed, the apps, etc. was annoying enough that I decided to use my bluetooth headset. The sound improved immeasurably by doing that. But, I noticed that while at work, listening to music, that I couldn't turn on wifi while I had bluetooth engaged. The music would haltingly play, like a skipping disk, until, finally, after about 30 seconds it stops altogether. As soon as I turned off wifi, the bluetooth playing would reengage where it left off and play perfectly.I also notice that with the plugged in mic or with my bluetooth headphones connected, if a call comes in while I'm listening to something, about 1/2 the time, the phone wouldn't ring or vibrate.
I recently rebooted to factory settings my Motorola Atrix (UK) - Android 2.3.4.Before resetting it, Motoblur was correctly retriving Twitter and Facebook messages. I was able to update both services status and leave comments on friends' status and messages.Following the factory reset, Motoblur can only post my status updates, it doesn't retrieve twitters from whose I'm following and Faceebook friends updates.Motoblur application is fully enabled in Facebook settings page.
When I used to plug in my phone to the tv with my hdmi cable it would pop up on the phone wanting me to pick entertainment center or webtop connector. I chose the entertaimnment center last time and chose the option to always pick that. Now when I connect my phone to the tv, the Motorola logo appears on the screen of the tv, but the phone does nothing, like it doesn't recognize it. Is there a way that I can redo whatevr it is I do so I can watch my videos on my tv?
My phones screen doesnt turn off unless I manually make it, I have screen set to turn off every 1 minute and I checked under development to make sure keep display on while charging was unchecked. Is there way to have phone display turn off every 1 minute while docked?
When going to a baseball game my phone loses it's signal, however, the Diamondbacks offer AT&T hotspots throughout the building. I have AT&T service so you would think this is a no brainer, my son who has Sprint gets on with no problem, my husband with Verizon has no problem, (both have Android phones), my daughter with A&T service and an iPhone has no problems, however when I go on, it searches for awhile and then I get the following error message and it shuts off my wifi
AT&T Wi-FI Hot Spot Status Unable to confirm eligibility, please call Customer ---and then it fades away, if you click on the error message it completely disappears and there is no phone number to call. This is my second phone because of this issue and it isn't fixed. I would like to be able to use my phone to use MLB at the Ballpark but it's like taking a brick to the ballpark.
I can't seem to connect my new Atrix 2 to my Macbook Pro at all.. not even through USB. I am not able to receive an item nor am I able to connect successfully through USB. At first, I just connected my phone through USB and it popped up to install a link but it was only an ".exe" file. I than downloaded Motorola Media Link and there is no connection link. I am on a Macbook Pro 10.6.8 and I have searched through the forum as well but nothing really specific on my issue. I have restarted my Mac and my Atrix 2 but to no avail.
Since I updated to the Gingerbread operating system the phone does not recognize the USB to charge and the pc is telling me that it cannot recognize the device either. I have tried to update drivers, but that has not worked.
After the battery died, the phone would flash on the Motoblur screen for a few seconds. Eventually (after more than 12 hours of the flashing on and off screen) it did charge up, but I don't know how to keep it charged and I cannot connect or sync with the computer. It is not the cable, as I have the same issue with the car charger connected.
I was able to do a External Reset, but it still has the same issue. AT&T doesn't know anything about it and has offered no solution. What should I do? Everything was working fine before the update. Is there any way to restore the old operating system?
When I connect my phone to a wall charger (provided my Motorola), the touch screen responds rarely (slowly). As soon you disconnect the charger it works fine. I had talked to Motorola specialist over the phone and she provided me with a new charger. However, the problem still persists.
Yesterday, I used a Blackberry charger (with very close voltage and current output) and the phone worked fine.
I thought I had read somewhere before that the locking security feature still allows someone to answer an incoming call, if it's set to lock. I tried it yesterday, and it's true. I don't know about anybody else, but I thought that if I locked my phone....I locked all aspects of it.
I have a Pattern Setup as my lock screen for my phone, and 2 out of the 3 times I try to unlock it, it doesn't work. I try to drag the pattern out, but it thinks i lifted my finger and the lines go red, like when you guess the wrong pattern, and the lines go crazy, shooting to random dots on the lock screen, making it very tempremental. When this occurs i just click the lock button to shut the screen off, and then try again. Even after I do this, it still won't work and the lock screen will go crazy.
I had over half a charge after sending a text message yesterday around 3pm. I looked at the phone at 4:30 and the screen was black and the device doesn't respond. I removed the battery and put it back to no avail. If I plug it in, the green light comes on - the Motorola splash screen displays - then a battery meter displays.
Has anyone managed to get Skype contact sync to work with their Atrix? I added the Skype account but it doesn't seem to synchronize any contacts. I've also had the account mysteriously vanish from the list of accounts.how to get this working?
Ok, after fooling with my phone and checking out all the cool new things it can do after the GB update, I have finally found a flaw, at least on my phone. In the past when listening to music, either with the car dock or headphones or hooked to my speakers at work, whenever I paused the stock music player, it would always keep the playlist current and I could pick up where I left off. Even if I just shuffled all songs. Now when I shuffle all and come back to it later or the next day, it either doesn't show any music as queued or will show the song, but when I hit play, it just takes me to the music player home screen. I also have winamp installed and it does not have a problem keeping my songs in the list. I like to use the stock music player because I can pause or FF a song without having to unlock the phone. Nifty feature being able to see the song playing and having those options on the lock screen. Why is my music player losing the song list? On a side note, winamp remembers what I was playing even after a reboot, but it does not show up on the lock screen.
When checking for system update, all I get is perpetual checking for update... it doesn't give you the up to date message anymore. Have tried #35468# for log in, but no help. Thought service updates were still being supported?
In the Settings, Applications, I noticed the Double Tap Home Launch function. I've tried using it, and it doesn't launch anything. I've tried setting it to camera, messages, and text...but nothing. Should I exchange the phone?
I can't seem to get my phone to communicate with Moto Cast USB. I use Zumocast for wireless, but I wanted to use Moto Cast to sync my music and videos over USB. When I plug the USB in everything starts up automatically. A screen pops up and tells me its preparing my device, then another screen pops up telling me to wait while it loads content. However, this second screen has a large yellow triangle with an exclamation in it and lists things to try if you are having connection issues. I have tried every USB option I have on the phone, it seems to force the connection back to USB mass storage, so I assume that is where it needs to be.
Just purchased Atrix 2 and I cannot connect to internet using wifi. It scans, connects and immediately disconnects.I have followed the instruction re: forget and reconnect. I have my passwords correct. I have a tablet and iphone that connects to the Netgear N600 without any issues.
I've had my Atrix for a couple of months now and I noticed this problem back within the first 30 days but thought it was an issue with our network at work..ie the wrong password. After getting our tech guys to set the right password I have tried to connect to the WiFi at work but it gets to the point of obtaining an IP address and disconnects. I know the password is right because my co workers newish laptop will connect and another coworkers Iphone 3GS will connect.
My Atrix will connect at home, Applebees guest and the local hospitals guest connection. The work connection is secured with WPA/WPA2 PSK according to my phone. It's a small work place and really the only person that would every use the connection would be me and honestly I'm a little peeved that I can't get it to connect. The routers are probably about 3 years old so I'm not sure what that would have on them but they should work just fine with this phone. I can't really log into the routers and change anything there because of some other things that are networked into the system. Are there any setting I can change in my phone that might force it to work?
When I got my Atrix 2 days ago, I brought it home and connected to my home wifi with no problem. Downoaded the 1st of 2 updates/upgrades and after installing it, I was no longer able to connect to it. "Obtaining IP address" was all it displayed until disabling it and connecting to one of my neighbour's unsecured, poor signal, on and off connection.I've tried the tech people at Bell Mobiity and even my internet provider and they are clueless.Everything else in the house connects without issue, including my old blackberry bold 9000, xbox, 3 laptops, tv, etc. Just not my Atrix.I've rebooted the router several times, renewed WAN settings, switched to static ip. I've also pulled the battery for 2+ minutes, rebooted the phone, told it to forget, then re-entered the password to try to reconnect. Nothing.I also don't have any issue connecting to other wifi networks. Just the one in my house.
I upgraded my Atrix 4.1.57. Since the upgrade, I have not been able to connect my phone, via Bluetooth, to my car. The phone and car find each other, the phone asks for the PIN code and it says connected. But, when I try to connect the phone to my car, I get an error message that the car has rejected the connection.
I have just bought an Atrix 4g european version. A great phone, but is there a bug in the operating system ? (2.3.4 was preinstalled) When I try to connect to my home network via wifi and the router is not broadcasting the SSID, the phone cannot connect. When I change the router so the SSID is being broadcast, the phone can connect and has an "excellent" connection. My other mobile phone (HTC diamond 2) and laptop can both connect to the router when it is not broadcasting the SSID, so the router is okay.
