Motorola :: Droid ICS 4.0.4 Not Working In Cradle Properly
Aug 18, 2012
Droid 4 formerly worked fine with new, more expensive cradle. Had a nightime cradle mode that showed a dimmed clock, for example.Now that the phone is "upgraded" to ICS 4.0.4. it is oblivious to cradle; charges, but screen goes blank a few minutes after inserting into cradle.Offers no cradle modes.
OK, just found another issue with my Droiid X2 running 2.3.4...
I'm having issues with Pandora on my X2 running 2.3.4, I cannot get Pandora to connect and play at all unless it is through WiFi. Then, it only buffers one song and dies due to the problem with the X2 wifi not staying active even when the sleep policy is set to never.Pandora doesn't work on 3g except for the inital advertisement.
It does work correctly when i put it in my pocket it does shut the screen of, When i see the problem is using the phone in portriate mode. it will just shut the screen. Seems to happen whent he phone is straight up and down ti will just lock the phone. i can unlock it and it goes straight back to locked. I have my screen time out set to a minute, and since i disabled it a few days ago i haven't had the issue. and also seems like the setting may be related to pulling down the notifications bar. It kind of makes me think my finger is hitting the light sensor that makes the phoen think it is in my pocket. Maybe that setting needs increased to a few seconds before it locks. Or maybe we just need an option under in pocket detection to set our own preference in seconds from 1 to 10. Either way wanted to report the problem and see if others have noticed this.
When I select the Where Am I option in the Card Dock app, it comes up fine and shows where I am and my progress. However, when I select the Google Maps button, it brings up a web based Google Map application instead of the DroidX's Map application as described in the instructions I've read.
I've been using my Bionic for about 24 hrs now (pretty heavy useage) and only 3 items show up in the "Battery and Data Manager":
Southwest Airlines App (96%)
Cell Standby (2%)
Phone Idle (2%)
That's it. I've used about 30 different apps and I've had WiFi on and off, I've been on LTE and switched to CDMA only for a bit. I've tried out the GPS, used Google Talk, the browser and a bunch of other stuff that I know takes up battery life and I want to know what is killing the battery? Is there a fix for the Battery and Data Manager or somewhere else on the phone I can look for this info?
I had put my comment in another post, but by the looks of it, it had never been addressed by any Motorola expert/employee, etc. Upon allowing my phone to sit, or after a reboot I can only make one phone call that is dialed at what I would call a rapide pace. It is what appears to be every call after that where I have a problem. In other words, I find the person in my contacts, select to dial it (or I input the phone number) and it just sits there. It can be anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute until ti finally dials.
How does one setup the task manager properly? Which tasks and processes can be killed? What can I do to create a better D2G? Is the task manager really a good idea? Why do some applications keep starting when I kill them?
My Droid takes pictures, but once the preview of the picture disappears off the screen, it saves in the gallery as blackness. When I turn the phone off and back on, the "pictures" are gone entirely. This just started happening a moment ago.
I have the tasks widget on one of my homescreens and it would be great if it worked properly. Anything I create a tasks, it doesn't show up in the widget unless I go to the widget settings and change which tasks are viewed (I normally leave it on all tasks). If I complete a tasks and it was in the widget, it's not removed from the widget unless I manually refresh it. If I try to delete the widget, the tasks process force closes.I can create tasks and get reminders and everything just fine, but they just don't show up in the widget properly.
RAZR Maxx My problem is about the 4 bottom icons/buttons/keys (Menu, Home, Back, Search) not lighting properly. When in a fairly dark room they always stay lit. Last night before sundown the icons were not lit. It was too dark to see them without being lit. It also depended on the position. I do not know if this was due to internal position sensors or just getting different levels of light from the light sensors. I called Verizon Tech Support and they said this was normal. It may be "normal" but hard to use the phone if I cannot see the icons/buttons/keys.
yesterday I receive my Lapdoc, it was working fine in the beginning. but today when I plug the atrix into the lapdoc again, only appear motorola sign in the screen. The lapdoc battery is full charged and when I plug the Atrix in the slot doesn't appear anymore the lapdoc option
When accessing a contact group, the bionic will always open the last opened contact group. I worked through some settings with motorola last winter, but the problem has never corrected. I even received a new phone when the speaker jack crapped out, same issue.
couple of weeks ago i started having issues with the social networking (and perhaps messaging) widgets. I see there is a new message on the widget and when I click it all the panels are Loading with blank info, when I go back and it says there are no recent unseen updates and I click on it and see all updates I can see all of them however any pictures will not load as well.everything is else is working good. I tried factory reset and few other suggestions from around this forum with no luck. the only thing I didn't try yet is a new blur account.
This is the 2nd 32gb sd cards I brought and it still not working well on motorola atrix. When I sync video into my phone (mp4) only 3 out of 15 video that plays. Last thread I created they said it was the sd card that was corrupted so I brought a new one and this one is still the same. Is it atrix doesn't work on 32sd card?
I purchased my Xoom a month ago and haven't had any problems except when i turn it off it ma or may not start again so i leave it on all the time. I hold the on button and volume high button on for three to five seconds . sometimes this works and som times it don't. If i hold the two buttons for longer a message appears about start protocolect. I have no idea what this means.
im using a bell atrix and my data has been wonky. My phone will show that it is connected to h+ with the up down arows showing but my phone is unable to open any web page or do a speed test. This issue is intermittent and a phone tester will provide a temporary fix. It even drops a connection during continuous data use. I register the Host Routing Table.
Where can I find some genuine or good looking iPhone 3GS cradle charging dock? I need it for my work office. I went on eBay and I found a bunch of fake replica docks from China/HK. I feel I should avoid it because I don't fakies. If anyone know any stylish looking one or way better than the one from the pics, let me know. I am really interested in purchasing a genuine cradle dock.
Bold "Bury" 9900 Car cradle, Bluetooth sync.I have purchased a bury 9900 genuine cradle for my car kit , and the phone will charge on the cradle, but will not sync to my blue tooth ? Have no idea what I can do. This is my 9th Blackberry phone and appx 5th model. 9900 absolutely is a commercial disaster for me. Low battery life, intermittent software failures. My phone is a tool not a toy, so this may have to be my last Blackberry.
I want to use my Storm as a clock in the cradle. Right now it does not go to bedside mode when you put it in the cradle and even when you manually put it in it locks and does not show clock. I am on an enterprise server and our company requires a password lock. Any suggestions on how to work around this?
I have a desktop cradle and have upgraded to Android 4.0.3, and now the power consumption when in the cradle is so high that charging from USB is not always enough to avoid the battery running out of power. (And I'm even connected to a USB hub with separate power supply.)
Just went to use my GPS for one of the first times since I updated to GB back when it came out and it never seemed to work. I turned everything on and when I clicked on driving directions (inside of Google Maps) it just says Searching for GPS and never seems to connect.
I just bought a Droid Razr Maxx to replace my Droid Bionic yesterday. I purchased it on Craigslist, and just now realized the GPS isn't working. If I use any of the GPS apps it finds 0 satellites in view no matter how long it stays out. I'm really hoping I didn't get screwed on this craigslist deal, but my stomach is sinking right now. So far I have.
My camera on my new xt5 that I bought is not working it never worked even straight out of the box, is there an update or software patch that can fix this, I've tried everything resetting it twice taken out the sd card putting in a new one nothing works it just fails, when i touch the camera or camcorder button the screen just goes all black and stays like that indefinably... until I press the home button. Absolute failure.
