I used to be one of the $UCKER$ loyal customers who upgraded my phone acocunt to a BackFlip last July 2010. I hated it, and now they do not even stock it. Well, I lost the phone so they sent me a replacement since my BackFlip was something I was paying for the Warranty on. So like, I got myself a brand new FLIPSIDE in the mail to replace my lost phone! I wasn't sure what to think, since everyone in the AT&T store told me to ask for something comparable, but NOT ANOTHER MOTOROLA (although the Atrix looked sort of neat, being a 4G phone and all,Anyway, I got the phone and logged on with one of two MotoBlur accounts I have. I forget if it is the newer one or the older one, but either way, it seems that so far, this phone is much better than the BackFlip.

However, so far, each time I go into ACCOUNTS and try to add either my Facebook or my Twitter account, it fails every time, after sitting there saying "Adding Your Facebook Account..." for a very long time, the bar slightly moving. But then it fails. Epic Fail.So I can download the Apps off of Market and run Facebook and Twitter that way, and get my updates like that, but my AT&T Social Networking App is useless (off of Market), or the Updates app or the Happenings app that both come with the phone. Both are useless. All three are useless. I don't know why on Market if you go to ATT's site, they have a new Social Networking app, but I can't use it without adding the Facebook or Twitter accounts in the Account section of the phone, which it still fails to let me do.I have the phone set up and running nicely, and there have been no issues so far, except that it keeps running out of space on the tiny little MICRO SD card that came with the phone 2 GB. I assume that is the same with the BackFlip? But I NEVER ran out of space on the BackFlip. maybe I upgraded my SD card or something and just blanked on it, but I doubt it. But anyway, I have gotten all the major issues I had with the BackFlip solved with this phone, even though it certainly is not a great phone. I am thinking maybe I should just factory reset the phone and start over wtih a brand new MotoBlur account and see if that fixes it.... but I don't want to lose all my phone numbers. So I guess I need to know:
Is adding Social Networking accounts to the Accounts menu in the phone an issue with this phone? And if I had to waste all the time I put into this phone to do such a stupid thing, how would I backup all these phones and apps I do like? I love how the Live Wallpapers works on this phone over the BackFlip. But I also hate how the AT&T store I saw this phone at to report the phone lost or stolen (and was told I couldn't order a replacement there at the store, but call them on another phone.... I don't own another phone, not even a land line this IS my lifeline so I had my parents do it, wheeeee anyway, I have once lost the phone and had it replaced by going to the big new store in San Francisco, so this is a refurbished replacement phone, and I noticed even with another Motoblur account, it DID NOT FIX THE ACCOUNTS ISSUE -- so both my MotoBlur accounts have this issue) - the AT&T store doesn't STOCK this phone even anymore! That's how fast this stupid line of phones seems to have gone down the drain in about a year. Wow. And I started the "ADD ACCOUNT" for FACEBOOK in my ACCOUNTS section of the phone when I began typing up this forum message.Still shows the bar SLOWLY moving to the right but I am sure it will fail when it eventually gets tired. It does this every time. I just UNINSTALLED the FACEBOOK and TWITTER APPS that I got off of MARKET..Wow I got to format this entire message and it STILL IS TRYING TO ADD MY FACEBOOK ACCOUNT TO THE ACCOUNTS SECTION OF MY PHONE!! I am on WI-FI AS I DO THIS TOO. Oh yeah I guess that is IMPORTANT, TOO. I am using Wi-Fi as I do this, so I am not having any connectivity issues. Everything else works fine connective-wise. So how could my Apps work for the social networking but not the social networking accounts that are supposed to be built in features to this line of social connectivity phones??
