Motorola Droid Turbo :: Cannot Uninstall Apps Only Disable

Aug 23, 2015

I had a recent update that updated all my apps. My Droid Turbo that I bought about a month ago came with 54 apps. All of them you can only disable not uninstall since it is part of the OS from what I understand.

Motorola Droid Turbo :: How To Disable Mic

Sep 26, 2015

I want to take full advantage of HD video camera on my Droid Turbo, and found an external lavalier lapel microphone (Audio Technica 3350iS, which comes with an adapter for "smartphones including iPhone and newer Android phones"). But even when I use the adapter, the video recorder will only use the phone's on board mic. How can I disable/mute the onboard mic? Scoured the interweb, and at one point there was a perfect app "Mute Mic", but the NSA or Google or Motorola decided it was too useful to live.

Motorola Droid Turbo :: How To Disable Visual Voicemail

May 29, 2015

I am wondering if there is a way to get rid of or disable visual voicemail on my Turbo? It is getting annoying any time I get a voicemail and the phone tries to default me to visual voicemail instead of standard (non visual) voicemail.

Also, is it now the norm for voicemail messages to be "read" as to the exact time/date/length of the voicemail? Or is that a component of visual voicemail? My messages often take longer to "load" than to listen to the actual vm itself since it is telling me what day it was sent, what time, how long, etc

Motorola Droid X :: Disable "SAFE MODE" On It?

Aug 20, 2011

I accidentally left my phone in my truck yesterday while taking the kids school clothes shopping for about an hour. When I returned, my phone was in "COOL DOWN MODE" (due to the extreme TX heat we are experiencing for the last couple of months). Once it cooled down it seemed to be returned to its once wonderful glory and working just fine.

I drove home (about 1.5 hour drive) and somewhere in that time frame the phone put itself in "SAFE MODE". I have since been unable to disable the "SAFE MODE". I have followed the suggested power off and reboot method and that has done nothing. I have powered off, removed battery and then powered on and that has also produced no positive results. I am looking for another option than FACTORY RESET.

Motorola Droid Turbo :: Email Apps That Can Use All Folders?

Mar 15, 2015

I've always used whatever email app was stock on my phones but I've recently been experimenting with other apps. My primary acct. is with Comcast and I have multiple folders set up for organization purposes; receipts, auto, ebay, etc. None of the email apps I've tried recognize any of the folders other than the inbox. Are there any apps out there that support this? Also, every app I've tried seem to only be able access the most recent 45 emails? Why don't they see everything in the inbox?

Motorola Droid Turbo :: Is There Any Way To Control What Apps Will Run At Start-up

Feb 8, 2015

Coming from a Razr Maxx that had issues, I am accustomed to checking my Running Apps list following a start-up/power cycle and force stopping the ones that are not essential to the phone functioning properly. And it seems old habits die hard as I caught myself doing just this on my Turbo and, what do you know.. some of the same apps are running immediately after start-up, despite the fact that I haven't opened them. A few of the culprits are Password Keeper and YouTube. I do use/open these apps on occasion (1-2 times per month) but I certainly do not like them running automatically for no reason. Nothing I do on the phone on a daily basis requires them to be open. It's a PITA to have to go in and manually tell them to shut the heck up! (Yes, I have gone into the settings on each of these apps but there is no box to uncheck to not have the app run on start-up.) So, it would be ever so nice to be able to have a say on what runs and what doesn't

Motorola Droid Turbo :: Offline Topo / GPS Apps

Apr 4, 2015

So I'm thinking about switching ecosystems and this handset is on my list.

One of the things that is important to me is offline topo mapping apps.

1) What are your go to apps for offline topo use? A lot of my buddies use Backcounty Navigator.

2) How long will this handset's battery run a GPS app like Backcountry Navigator? I typically go into airplane mode to conserve battery (no cell signal where I go typically anyway) and just use GPS.

Motorola Droid Turbo :: Screen Go Blank After Using Any Of Apps (Lollipop 5.1)

Jul 4, 2015

After updating to Lollipop 5.1, I noticed my screen is blank after using any app (messaging, GMail, etc.) and it won't come back. Calls and texts and other notices come (can actually answer calls and see the call screen) through, but home screen and any adjacent screens are all black. The status bar and icons are visible though and I can use the pull down menu. It's as if it is refreshing but never gets to the end. I installed many apps, even used a stock wallpaper), but it still will do this. I have to keep rebooting until it eventually stops; I check it by using a random app and seeing if I can see the screen by pressing the Home button. I also wiped the cache partition after the OS upgrade.

Motorola Droid Razr :: Option To Disable More Apps?

Jul 12, 2012

On the next update we need the option to disable more apps like that weather thing that's always running and backup assistant + media that I don't use and dlna. We need to be able to disable all apps that is safe to do so. Cause the three that I mention here are running all the time and I don't even use them. I've stopped them and there already running again. At least make these 3 so that they can be disabled.

Motorola Droid Turbo :: Automation Apps Can't Turn Of Mobile Data Anymore?

Jul 16, 2015

After the 5.1 upgrade, my automation apps can't turn off mobile data anymore. That was how I was stopping beeps while I was sleeping. How do I get the phone to go completely silent except for phone calls overnight?

My goal: phone goes silent during set night hours; the only thing that can get it to make noise is a phone call or alarm. It would also be convenient to be able to toggle that mode on or off manually. I need it to be 100% effective in shutting up every single app and beep, and so far the only way I've found to do that is to turn off all data connections.

Would the new 5.1 "Downtime" option fix this problem? On the Interruptions settings page, I could set only phone calls to be priority interruptions, and then set only priority interruptions to come up during quiet hours. Would that really stop all apps, or just those that play nice? Can't seem to trigger that downtime time manually, though.

I've been using Battery drain analyzer free to set up a silent mode at night. It has a simple night and day setting, where at a set time, it can turn things off or on. So every night at bedtime, it turns off wifi, sync, and mobile data, so the only things that could really happen are phone calls and text messages. (I'd like to silence texts, too, but have not figured that out.) Then it all comes back on at a set time in the morning. Simple and straightforward -- that's all I want. It's also convenient to be able to hit the "night" button if I go to bed early or sleep past the usual wakeup time, or to hit the "day" button if I wake up early.

But with the update to 5.1, that app doesn't automatically turn off mobile data anymore. I've also noticed that my Power Toggles notification bar button no longer turns off mobile data with one click; instead it sends me to the settings page for mobile data, where I click again to turn off mobile data. There's no option in Automate It, either.I'm guessing that this is a settings change in 5.1.

Motorola Droid Turbo :: Random Battery Drain Due To Phone And Dialer Apps

Aug 4, 2015

Every once in a while (has happened 2 times in as many weeks) the phone or dialer APP will suck battery and throw off my typical discharge time WITHOUT me ever placing a call (let alone opening the phone interface). For example, as shown in the attached, I'm down almost 70% on just 19 hours and change of use, with just 2.5 hours of screen on time, with the phone app draining 7% without any phone usage. Typically, I can make it 24+ hours with 4+ hours of screen time on that level of battery drain.

Aside from those instances, battery has been great on L. Used to get, typically, about 26 hours before charging at 25%. Now, I consistently get 29+ hours on the same usage.

Motorola Droid Turbo :: Google Maps Voice Not Working Over Bluetooth With Other Apps

Jul 9, 2015

Prior to the lollipop update everything was working fine. Now if I am listening to something on the Audible app or Pocketcast app the Google Maps voice will not break in with directions. There will just be a brief silence where it is trying to speak but no actual voice. If I pause the book or music the maps voice works. If I turn the Bluetooth on the phone off the voice breaks through just fine on the phone speaker. It's very frustrating.

Motorola Droid Turbo :: Rainbow Colors While Charging With Turbo Charger?

Mar 14, 2015

More recently, my droid turbo has been turning rainbow colors instead of black with the time when it's charging. If I press the lock button myself, the phone will lock and stay black with the time. If I unlock my phone and let it be, it'll turn to the rainbow colors. I have my phone on the turbo charger when this happens!
