Motorola Defy :: Email Auto-retrieval Defy 2.2.1 Versus 2.1?
Dec 2, 2011
setting up auto-fetching applies to all email accounts. I swear on my 2.1 Spice XT300, the auto-retrieval was by email address (and also the smallest interval between fetches was 5 minutes, not 15 like on the Defy). I have never used 2.1 on the Defy; mine was original 2.2.1.
My phone has multiple resets ad the direction of Motorola, and has been in for a circuit board replacement.Now the screen still freezes and the reception is hopeless.I am sure this handset is a lemon.It is still under warranty, 11 months old.
I updated to Froyo via Motorola website but it hasn't worked. My phone still shows firmware 2.1.1. Tried to update again via Motorola website but it now tells me that there are no updates for my phone.....I presume that it somehow detects that my phone previously downloaded froyo update.
My Defy is denied application on the market with no reason that I understand.Some apps are not visible from the phone, and are said "non compatible" from the market website. Sometime the website talks of country restriction while they should not be.
I have had my defy now for a few months, and I have been pretty happy with it (babyproof smartphone!)Unfortunately, its becoming more and more unreliable, and am having to reboot it regularly.This weekend is the worst. Here are some of the things it is doing:
all apps keep freezing and crashing (no fancy apps, mostly use it for twitter, facebook etc).phone keeps freezing and being unresponsible on the home screen keep getting an 'emergency calls only' notification, which then clears straight away when i go into notifications.mms photos - both sent and received take up to 5 days to be visible. until then they are just flagged as 'downloading'. I'm pretty sure it shouldn't take 5 days to download a 27kb file.After rebooting, I did have a gmail widget require a forced close immediately. I was never using that widget anyway, and couldn't see it, so I uninstalled it. Now on rebooting I have to force close Google Services Framework. I have decided that looks reasonably important and useful and have declined to uninstall that so far.
I have a my Defy & XT and as of 9:22 am the weather widget hasn't udated and I've turned the phone off and on etc and then I deleted my location and tried to readd it and it said something like.. location information cannot be found (not sure off hand).. I don't know what to do but it won't let me add any loactions but apps from the market work.
I've bought my 'Defy, motoblur - MB525' on 'T-mobile - UK. It doesn't seems to be connecting to 3G. I've gone thru different checks on the phone with t-mobile support, even sent my phone for 3 weeks but still the same problem. They'v ask me to sent it back. Mobile network is set on auto, but i m unable to view any videos or download a simple pdf, it takes very long to connect to some sites. There is always a 'G' on top of the screen.
I did the factory reset and i have installed no additional application in defy. I just set up the google account and logged in to Gtalk... again after the phone goes to sleep mode Gtalk gets automatically logged off and hence i dont receive any msg. I have kept the batery manager in Performance Mode.I am having this problem since very begining inmy defy. However my friend using samsung spica with 2.1 doennot have this problem and remains online and receiving msg instantly.
After i upgraded to FroYo, my camera no longer does the auto focus. The image will be blurred. When i press the soft key on the cam screen, it starts focussing and get a clear picture. Also there is a delay bet image capture and flash.
i tried to redgester my email into my phone that i got today and it came up saying my email was unvalid i have not yet loaded any money on it is this the problem? ide like to use it it isnt a cheep phone, oh yes i have tried several email accounts but still nothing ......
I have just used the Email app that came with my Defy to send a message for the first time. The only trouble is that it didn't send. It is sat in the outbox not actually doing anything. what I can do about it to try and get it to send it? I just don't see much in the way of options.
I have looked at the settings for the different email accounts I have and that particular one all the settings for incoming and outgoing servers are correct and just the same as they are in outlook on my computer.
Yesterday I upgraded my Defy to Froyo 2.2.2 (from the Moto website). Everything is great except my phone beeps everytime I get an email. I have gone into email settings and changed it to silent, but it still plays the ringtone. If I change the ringtone for email notification, it changes and plays the one I select, except if I change it to silent, it plays the "Bells" ringtone, which I think is the default. I have tried turning the phone off and on, but it still rings. I am using the stock email app with 2 pop accounts and a Yahoo account, and it plays the ringtone for all of them.
I have 2 corporate sync accounts setup on my defy+ - but cannot work out how to view them both
Currently I have to go into settings and set one or the other as default to see the emails Or Wait for an email to come in, and go into it from the notifications. I used to have a Samsung Galaxy (Android 2.2), as that had an option for 'combined inbox'
Got a new 5230 Nuron a few weeks ago. So far: quite pleased with it. With one exception: I have set up 4 email addresses. I'd like to set them all to auto retrieval; but the phone only lets me set 2 with that option. If I select a 3rd it tells me "maximum amount of mailboxes already automatically retrieving e-mails". Is there a way around this?
Just updated to 2.2.2 (CEE) and everything works fine. Thanks guys from Motorola. I have only two questions:1) How can I disable haptic feedback on buttons under the LCD? In settings I have already disabled it, same problem I had on 2.1? Is there any possibility to hide email contacts from all contacts? For example something like "hide all contacts without phone number" like it was on my previous Android phone?
that my Defy is downlading data only over 3G though I have the WLAN connected. It starts its download with WLAN, and after 30 seconds, when the screen is off, it starts or continues the download over 3G and is eating my Data Package.
If I keep the Screen ON, from the Display settings, it uses the WLAN, but as soon as the screen is off it uses the 3G.
I cant seem to figure out how to update to 2.2. I have an unlocked Defy in the U.S. with AT&T. When I do system update it sais it is current. If I try to update through motorola it directs me to the t-mobile update. How do I get a stand alone download file to update my Defy to android 2.2?
My Defy+ only lasts for 2 days, even without actually using it (only standby and 2G network). The screen is always off. This is nowhere near the 384h as advertised. probably need to take it back to the shop but I wanted to ask if it can be fixed easily.
I just have three quick questions I hope you can direct me to links or previous posts on: How do you back up your defy phone completely ahead of upgrading the o.s. software? Where is the information/instructions/download for upgrading from Android 2.1 to 2.2? How do you root the Defy and what exactly does the process do and involve as well as solve? Stability Issues? Crashes? Software glitches and hangs?
I have a problem with my Motorola Defy. is almost new, and the battery is charging only 84%. On the forum I read that I need to flash new firmware. My version is 4.5.1_128 (UK). Where can I download the official software for my phone to flash by RSD Lite?
I bought a car dock (TrailBlazer Advanced Pro Universal Car Charger and Holder [URL] for my Defy that goes into the cigarette lighter socket and the Defy sits in it and you can connect it to the power.Unfortunately the Defy doesn't charge when connected, and it often says to even unplug it! It makes no difference whether I have it connected or not because it eventually runs out of power and the battery is flat.Is there something I am doing wrong? I am also unsure how I did it but apparently there is a car dock mode for the Defy? I'm being a bit lazy and haven't read the manual on this but how exactly do you put it into car dock mode and will it charge when in this mode?
I am going to try and troubleshoot whether this is an issue with the Defy or Car Dock. I know it can't be the socket because I have a separate small 80w inverter and that will charge the Defy when connected to that with its main plug. Unfortunately I can't use the dock and the small inverter at the same time.I have also tried using both the small tip connector and the usb connector when plugging it into the Trailblazer holder/charger but it makes no difference it still runs out of ju ju. I think there has only been a couple of times out of ten or twenty attempts when I have managed to get it charging from the trailblazer - I'm not sure how I did it but that was after it had run out of juice and I still had no indication that it was charging or anything.
