The Verizon Sales assistant assured me that I'd be able to Sync my Outlook with my Droid Razr as easily as I synced it with my old Blackberry Tour. Now, after several days' worth of set-up, google searches, forum searches and FAQ's, I'm come to the conclusion that Motorola did NOT build this function into the Droid Razr, and I have to pay a hefty fee for a decent 3rd-party app to do what my Blackberry did for free. Have I missed something?
I've been using the Razr Maxx for just about a week now, and the push mail on my iMap account does not sync consistently. Sometimes it works fine, but usually mail just doesn't get pushed. When this happens, toggling the Background Data option seems to re-start the sync process, and the mails start coming in. However, after a while, it just gets stuck again. At first I thought that the trigger might be a disconnect from the network. especially during a drop from 3G to 2G, but it fails even if the network connection is stable. The POP accounts which are on a fetch-schedule work just fine.Suggestions for third-party clients such as K9 and MailDroid are fine, but these do not integrate with the Universal Inbox widget, which I feel is a great tool, especially since it combines text messaging, FaceBook and Twitter all in one.
I have the droid razr maxx and I used the stock razr account setup to setup my yahoo email. I guess my question would be is there a problem with yahoo servers or is motorola and yahoo just not playing nice? I keep getting emails in triplicate and Im not sure what causes it. Some days it will work just fine and I'll get my email correctly and other times I wake up with like 30 emails but there will be just repeat messages in triplicate.
I have an email account at optonline.net (could be optimum.net, too). Motorola's support section says that Optimum recommends using a browser to access mobile email (what???? I have to go get it??? It won't come to me???) but then provides the settings to use in the email app. Using auto configuration, I'm receiving my email in seconds, but I can't send email from the phone. I've tried to configure it manually (the automatic configuration provides the wrong name for the outgoing server) but so far, no combination of settings has resulted in my ability to send an email from optimum on my Droid Razr.
this will now work as it should.the problem was that if you set it up with Gmail selected instead of Other then when you checked an email on the RAZR it would not show as Read on your Gmail account and same with Sent folder etc...
I have recently downloaded the new Yahoo mail app and after doing so I no longer receive a notification that I have received an email. I use light flow and it is set up properly for all other notifications.
Since using ICS on my RazrMaxx When checking email it takes forever (ok 4-8 minutes) to connect and check the mail. It is a gmail based email set up under messaging. Battery Life has dropped dramatically. No universal volume controls for messaging and calls (For example if I want to adjust my phone ringtone to be very soft by using the rocker switch on the side it now only controls just the phone ringer. Messaging would still be at the volume you have the settings at. Previously the rocker switch controlled all volume.)
i cant seem to sync my fb contacts.i entered my fb email/pass into the accounts appit said it was ok, but no contacts show up in my contacts nor do any show up in my gallery app. i tried re-entering the info, removing the acct, adding it again, rebooting my phone etc. now, it looks like there is a tiny bit of progress.. i can see "me" but that's it. in the contacts app, if i only select to display fb contacts, it just shows me and not body else. in the gallery app, if i hit menu and then hit "friends" again, it only shows me. why is this not pulling in any contacts/friends?
Tapping my way through "Go to all settings" > "Accounts" > "Google". I see my gmail account shown, and under that it says "Sync is OFF". Before the update to Jellybean I could find where to turn this on and off. Further tapping on my account name I get to a screen titled "Sync" at the top-left. The options icon gives me "Sync now" and "Remove account" options. The screen is filled with a list of Google things I can sync. Tapping any of those syncs that Google thing. But, none of them are configurable.
I set up my corporate Exchange account using the Corporate Sync. It works fine when I am on 4G but when I switch to my Netgear 600 router at home I cannot sync with the Exchange account. Everything else works while on Wifi including my Gmail.
I am not able to sync the MotoActv App on my Droid Razr with the Motorola Website. It says "An error occurred on your device while performing synchronization. Please try again later or contact customer support" The last time it was able to update was on Friday June 1st.I've been trying for the last 3 days and keep getting the same error.
I set up my company's exchange email on my phone today, all the calender events, and Contacts sync, I can send email, but my inbox is always empty. I know I'm getting emails,I've sent myself things, it shows up on my laptop and my phone never receives anything. Has anyone else had this problem
Exchange Active Sync is not working for me. It will not sync anything. I can not get or send email.This had worked fine for months. Tried rebooting phone and deleting and adding back account. In the settings did the verify account and it says sucessful. Works for email if I use the "Email Accounts" option and not "Corporate Sync" option but I need my contacts and calander also to work.
I used the email app to setup my AOL email. I have noticed that when I delete email on my computer (AOL account) that those deletions are not appearing on my Razr. I used an OG Droid before the Razr and never had this issue- they are deleted on the Droid when the account syncs.
How and or what do you use to Sync Photos from Razr Maxx to a Windows PC?? Also can you Sync both ways? I have photos on my Phone that I would like to find a simple way to sync with my PC, and of course I have some photos that I would also like to Sync with me phone.
Is there a way to force manual corporate sync setup?Our corporate email settings (for phones) have just changed and they recommended (requested) I delete the prior corporate sync and re-input all settings.Foolishly, I followed this advice...Now, repeated (dozens!) auto-discover attempts have failed and no manual input option is being offered.
For some reason, I'm currently unable to sync my facebook events to my phone calendar. In the Settings>Accounts, my facebook account is listed. When i tap on my account and enter my username/password, I'm brought back to the list of accounts, and I can't sync either my contacts or my calendar with my phone.
I used to be able to do this on my Galaxy S and could do it for a minute on the Razr. Does anyone know what happened, and if I can re-establish the sync? I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling facebook, but it didn't do anything.
When I got my phone, the Verizon rep helped move my 3000 contacts from my old phone to the new one.They are all there in the phone.But, they will not sync up into Outlook via MS Exchange.It WILL sync a newly added Contact, so sync is working between my phone and Outook.This works both directions, whether I create a new record on my phone or create the new record in Outlook.It just won't work with the ones loaded on the phone at the time of purchase.How tag all my original Contacts on my phone so they will flow up into Exchange/Outlook?
I created a smart action that disables data sync when the Maxx is not on a charger. It is an attempt to solve the problem of sporadic massive battery drain. I don't think background apps are running when this occurs, but anyway I want to know if a successful sync can take place while it is enabled only when plugged in to a charger.
On my unrooted Droid Razr Maxx my email (Gmail works properly) doesn't sync all the time. Sometimes, it syncs as they are received and sometimes I have to refresh. If I don't refresh every hour I can an entire day without receiving an email.
Does anyone know how to add, for example, Sugar Sync as an option on the list that comes up when you want to attach a document to an email? Sugar Sync did mysteriously appear on the list one day and I was able to attach and send a document stored on it.However, it is no longer there and I would like to add it permanently.
