Motorola Atrix 4G :: Will Not Connect And When Go Into Settings It Just Says 'Error'?
May 18, 2011
I am having an error with the WiFi of the Atrix 4G. It will not connect and when I go into settings it just says 'Error'. I have had the phone since it has come out and this has never happened before. I have wiped and restarted the phone twice and nothing has changed. I have attached pictures of the menu settings page and the toggle switch which just has the loading symbol and cant be switched on or off.
I removed my Facebook account from my Motoblur account listing and tried to add it under other accounts but it does not show up at all and thus no contacts get sync'd or anything though I can still use the facebook app. Do I have to login to facebook under motoblur accounts in order to get the contact syncing?
I have recently done a hard factory wipe/reset as well as erased my user data through Motoblur site, but when I turn on the phone it still retains all my screen layout settings, sticky notes and content, contact layouts, shortcuts etc...I would like to have everything reset to blank like the day I bought the phone, is there any way to do this rather than removing everything from the screen one by one?
I recently update my Attrix 4g from Android 2.3.2 to 2.3.4.Since then some of the settings in the Camera app have disappeared.The manual says the options available in the camera settings should be: Picture Res, Video Res, Exposure, Review Time, Shutter Tone and Storage Location.But only pic res, vid res, exposure, storage location are available since the update.
I have the Arix 4G running Gingerbread 2.3.4 on AT&T. However, I cannot access the "Settings" menu option on the phone. It is not listed in the "All Apps" list and when on the home screen, pressing the menu button then "Settings" does absolutely nothing. I've factory reset the phone, twice externally.
I can't get any more phone details as the menu is inacessible. how else I can get the settings menu functionality back?
I have a Motorola Atrix 4g on the Telstra Network (Australia). I recently updated from Android 2.3.2 to 2.3.4. Since then some of the settings in the Camera app have disappeared. The manual says the options available in the camera settings should be: Picture Res, Video Res, Exposure, Review Time, Shutter Tone and Storage Location, which were all present when I first got the phone. But since the update, only pic res, vid res, exposure, storage location are available. I have tried clearing the camera apps data and cache, but no changes.
I have my atrix plugged into my car dock while driving and listening to music from it through the aux input on my stereo (through the charge lead) but when every I make or answer a call while driving, the sound defaults to the speaker on the phone and nothing can be heard. I have to press the "Speaker" button on the screen and then i can hear the person on the call without issue.

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.
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 go to settings- about phone- system updates, the progress wheel just keeps turning forever. I had this problem a while ago and I was told my motoblur account was inactive. I'm assuming this has happened again somehow? How does this keep happening? I don't have any customization or rooting or anything like that. Obviously I don't want to have to perform a factory reset everytime I want to check for an update.
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 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 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.
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..
My phone currently can make calls and send text messages but it will not send/rx data type calls. The H+ icon is displayed and I'm in a good signal area. Wi-Fi works fine. In the Phone status menu, I see a potential problem in that the Mobile Network state is set to "disconnected". Mobile Net type = HSPA (which stands for what?), Service state = "in service", and I'm on an AT&T network.how to get my mobile network state back on?
