I"m looking for the settings for the wired headset. There was a screen that allowed you to set sound effects and I believe equalizer settings. Was this screen eliminated? I can't seem to find it.

Motorola Droid 4 :: Shut Off Phone Mic When Using A Wired Headset?

Mar 9, 2012

When I am using a wired headset with my phone the microphone on the phone remains on and it becomes very noisy; therefore making the use of a wired headset almost impossible. I know I may be able to avoid this by using a blue tooth; however, I need to use a wired headset and not a blue tooth in many situations..!

Motorola Droid Bionic :: Wired Headset Will Not Work In Bluetooth Environment

Sep 16, 2011

I have found it almost impossible to get a wired headset to work on my bionic when in my car (which has built in bluetooth, and which is bonded to the phone just fine). The only way I can make the wired headset take precedence over the bluetooth, and/or the phone's speaker phone, is to:

1. Make a call in the car (any mode).
2. Plug in headset.
3. Click on the phone's speaker icon (headset works for 1/2 second before sound reverts to bionic's speakerphone).
4. Unplug and plug the headset into the bionic, often 2 or 3 times.

Obviously this sucks and would cause a terrible accident if one were driving and doing all these procedures. I have read every documentation on the phone to no avail. I have called Motorola twice, to no avail (and was hung up on by the tech), and called Verizon tech, who also hung up on me.

Motorola Droid Bionic :: Losing Wired And Bluetooth Headphone For Non-phone Audio?

Sep 26, 2011

Occasionally, I will lose both the wired and bluetooth headphones. My bluetooth headphones will work for the phone, but not for game or music player audio.When I disconnect the headphones, the speaker works fine. When I reconnect them, I still get nothing, but again, after disconnecting, the speaker works.Rebooting the phone corrects the issue.The best I can relate this to is muting the phone during a meeting.I have use the volume rocker and my "Volume Control" app.If I mute it, and put it back quickly, it works. It's when I've had it muted for an hour or so that I see the problem.

Galaxy S6 :: Swipe Back From Magazine To Homescreen

Apr 21, 2015

I'm going to buy S6 but I would only go for the unlocked/non-carrier version so I'm still waiting. During the time, I try S6/edge several times at Bestbuy and did find something very strange when I swipe the screen left or right. I didn't realize it's the problem(actually I was thinking my finger was too dry) until I tried the S5 right next to it and didn't find anything wrong.

It happens when you swipe left back to Homescreen from magazine app(Flipboard integrated). It's playing animation and don't let you do anything during this animation. So basically if you swipe left twice quickly, it is supposed to go to the second screen on the right but it didn't. That works fine on S5 but not on S6. On S6 the second swipe(or any extra swipe after that but before the animation is over) didn't work and didn't react to your finger until the animation is played completely. I am not sure if it's the problem of display phones or a general problem.

Motorola Droid 2 :: Can't Get GB Update

Sep 14, 2011

I have an R2D2 Droid 2 that I (foolishly) flashed over to the standard Droid 2 system version, in order to run the Gingerbread build for it that came out a couple weeks ago. At the time, I was convinced that the R2 would not be getting a GB build, so I jumped the gun.

Now that the official R2 GB has been released, I would really like to get back to stock. It's kind of the whole reason I bought this phone instead of a regular Droid 2. Unfortunately, along the way I've managed to lose my stock image for the R2, and AFAIK there has never been an SBF released for the R2.

I've been trying for at least a month to come up with a solution to this problem, have scoured the internet (and noticed a lot of people that have had the same problem), and have pretty much run out of ideas at this point. I also know that rooting and flashing aren't necessarily condoned by Motorola in general, but does anyone have any other ideas on how I could get back to stock R2, Froyo or GB, at this point?

Motorola Droid X :: Check For Update Not Available?

I have been checking for the latest update for a few days now and keep getting the message: "Check for update was not available at this time. Try again later." Is this because the GB update is being rolled out in stages still or is there a problem with my particular phone's ability to update?

Motorola Droid X2 :: Gingerbread Update For It

Jun 1, 2011

When is it reasonable to expect the X2 to receive the update to Gingerbread not that the Droid X is receiving it in the field? As a consumer I would have expected the newest model of the Motorola family to have been shipped with Gingerbread but seing the old model Droid X receive it before the X2 is a little puzzling.

Motorola Droid X :: Wi-fi Unusable After Update?

Feb 27, 2012

The update has made the wi-fi next to unusable. I have removed the Wi-Fi connection and re-entered it. Power cycled the phone, done a battery pull. Nothing fixes the issue. Try running a speed test it either fails consistently with "network communication failure" or the bandwidth is horrendous. I never had such issues before the update. The issue is not only at home even at work. I was wondering if others were seeing such abysmal performance. I have NEVER rooted my phone. I wish I had and switched to community ROM, they seem to be doing a better job than a corporation like Motorola. I just wish Motorola never updated this phone, every update has caused the phones performance to deteriorate. The Droid X could have been a worthy successor to the Droid but Motorola just screwed it up. I have been a loyal motorola and verizon customer for close to 10 years now. When my contract gets done one thing is for certain I will never ever be buying another Motorola device nor will I ever recommend a Motorola device ever again. Releasing half a dozen devices every year is only what Motorola is good at

Motorola Droid X2 :: GPS Fix Doesn't Update

Aug 26, 2011

For the past few days my GPS will freeze once it's obtained a fix on my position. If I open a new application that uses the GPS, it will obtain a new fix, but again freeze as soon as it's done so. This issue is consistent across all GPS applications I've tried (Google Maps, Navigation, Waze, GPS Status, GPS Test). It also happens regardless of whether the phone is in my car dock or not.

Motorola Droid 4 :: Only Able To Update 1 App At A Time?

Nov 16, 2012

I'm running into an odd issue, and I can't seem to find any fixes for it. For some reason, I can only update apps in the Play Store one at a time. For example, this morning I had 10 apps show needing updates. I tapped on "Update All". One app updated fine, then the next one went to "Downloading", but never showed a statusAfter over 30 minutes, it still just showed "Downloading". I tapped on "Stop", then "Update All" again, and one more app updated, then the same behavior of the next one just sitting on "Downloading" happened. I kep repeating this, and got all of the apps updated.This happens on 3G, 4G, and Wi-Fi, both at work and at home. I've tried clearing all data/updates from the Play Store app, and completely removing and re-adding my Google account.
