Even though the Backflip comes to AT&T in a week, it looks to me that the Droid/Milestone may be the better phone. Bigger but better. But can I get one that uses all the AT&T 850MHz bands? It doesn't seem to be like Nokia, where I could simply buy the phone I wanted from (e.g.) J&R or NewEgg; where does one buy unlocked NAM (North American) Motorola Milestones from?
What frequency bands will the Telus Moto Milestone support? All the info seems to indicate 850/1900 for 3G and no info on 2G except for rumors saying the same as the EU milestone or only 850/1900.I was hoping for at least tri-band 3G and quad-band 2G. I am sick and tired of these phones with weak-sauce frequency bands.
I am a Milestone user and I want my booloader unlocked. I live in Romania and I have to inform you that you are in breach of the Romanian Constitution. My Milestone is not carrier locked and my owner rights are guaranteed and protected by the Romanian Constitution.
I own a French Retail A953 Milestone 2 and I'm looking forward to android 2.3 update. So, after followed the thread [URL]and it's on ! The update is here.Unfortunately when trying to update my mobile using MSU the answer is "no new update availlable yet for your mobile"...I'm using A953 with Android 2.2.2 and the system version is Version.62.4.24.A953.Retail.en.FR.
Old V9x was Telstra locked and ran on 3G 850 MHz (called NextG here) which suits me fine. Flip on phone got damaged, so bought another that is unlocked. Has GSM 850, 900, 1800, 1900 and 3G HSDPA, but not 3G 850.
Q1: Is the band availability able to be changed via software or hardware?
Q2: If it is hardware is there any issue with swapping the chip set PCB from old phone to new? (Have seen the dismantling stuff on the net)
is there anything i can do to improve flash video playback? after the 2.2 update i was excited to be able to use flash on my phone, but video playback on it seems so bad that it's unwatchable.it's like a slideshow at best, and at worse i'm only getting one frame every thirty seconds or so. oddly enough the sound never skips or stutters at all.i've tried it over wifi and 3g. Internet videos in the native app and other non-flash streaming media seem to work perfectly.i'm using the stock browser with flash player 10.2.157.51 (the latest one available in the android market), and i've tried several different videos linked from m.flash.com
I updated my Milestone which is UAE version to Froyo yesterday after a long delay, was really excited all evening until i discovered two problems with my wifi.The Device does not connect to the corporate network as my office uses 802.1x EAP and there is no place to enter proxy where as my friends using samsung galaxy s (Froyo 2.2) connect to the network and browse using the wifi advanced settings to enter the proxy in their device.
I have a problem in my milestone. Im trying to update my milestone to froyo from eclair 2.1 update 1 via MSU (Motorola Software Update). But after some minute It restart with a blank screen then reboot to OS and MSU says update failed. My last resort is to flash it via RSDLITE but when im trying to get into bootloader it shows blank screen then reboot to OS. I cant enter to my bootloader.
Have a brand new install of Windows 7 64bit and a 6 month old Milestone 2 which has always succesfully connected to PC/Mac in USB mass storage mode, but when trying to connect to new Windows & PC the PC tries to install MTP drivers that fail.Solution is to select the failed device in device manager and manually install the driver selecting the device as a USB mass storage device and not the default MTP device.
After spending 2 hours on the forums and 2 hrs on motorola website, downloading the motorola software update and finding that the updater says that your phone is up to date with 2.1 (where as the motorola site says 2.2 is now available) and browsing thru unending discussions, I was unable to update my Motorola milestone to Android 2.2. I last week sent my phone to the service center to ask them to update it to 2.2, they returned the phone saying it is up to date.I am sick of removing applications and always worrying about the remaining ROM availability.

If the official version is not available in Dubai can someone tell me of a shop where I can get it updated, as I dont really understand the concept of rooting and stuff like that.
Does anyone know if a version of the Galaxy S is going to be released with the AT&T 3g bands? I've heard AT&T is supposed to be receiving the Captivate, however, I have no interest in picking up a branded (and most likely crippled) phone. I wanted to purchase an unbranded and unlocked Galaxy S that supports AT&T 3g, but I search Google and the forums here and found no information about where to purchase one, or if one even exists. It shows on gsmarena.com that there is supposed to be a version of the Galaxy S with AT&T bands but I wanted to know if anyone has any information on where to purchase one or if one is actually going to be released and when.
I bought a BB Torch 9860 in USA, and I live in Argentina, and as I couldn't get 3G on it I was searching and I foun out that I got a wrong 3G bands units. mine is model RDQ71UW with bands 1-4-8, and local mobile provider here, Claro, explained to me that I need the bands 1-2-5-6, that I understand is on model RDP71UW.I also understand that it is not something that could gets re-configured.So I should buy a correct unit and try to sell this one, is that right?Is not possible to get this model in Argentina because we have many limitations to importations. at the States do they sell/use boht models? so, in that case I could get the correct one there, and also offer mine there, correct?What countries or regions uses each of those models?
Looking to upgrade soon and might have the option of getting a phone with just 850 3g band and wanted to see if there was a way to test coverage locally. My blackjack does both so that doesn't help alone, and if I set it to 850 gsm it loses all signal. That might mean no 850 3g, but wanted to be sure that was the case and if not conclusive what I can do to see signals in the area.
Trying out Milestone in home. Keeps disconnecting from wifi have to keep checking it and reconnecting. Btw, is there an app that gives a wifi symbol at the top of the screen? Wifi works perfectly with my laptop.
In your opinion, what is the best GPS software for milestone? It doesn't matter if it's paid or non paid software as long it work good..I've found on the Market a paid one for US$29,99 - CoPilot Live.Is it good?
I updated my milestone to 2.2 But it has got very slow, Moreover it hangs itself. Screen shows some lines n then when i press the screen lock button the screen goes black and the shortcut screen still glows.Phone recieves the call and if i press the volume button it correctly vibrates and beeps. I have tried formatting, flashing from the service centre everything. The people here in service centre are dumb. They say that the fone have problem in flex, but My phone used to work fine when I had 2.1.
**** complete edit by fletch33. just too much to edit out to save this post. please see our house rules in regards to dicussion and links to information that alters the system or requires root.there are plenty of forums to discuss this however the Motorola corporate forum is not one of them.
so i recently just got the milestone and it connects to wifi fine and all.. the connection is okay, but when i try to disconnect from what im connected to, the wifi freezes and it stays on "turning off"it doesnt go away until i restart the phone.
I was interested in getting a Milestone, but before I do, I was wondering if there are any issues with the SMS time stamps when you receive a new SMS message? I had an HTC Hero before (I'm on Rogers network) and it would always be off by 3 hours and I couldn't find a resolution for it.
I have an unlocked motorola milestile that I just bought about 2 weeks ago and had it unlocked for bell. Anyways, recently bell called me saying that I owe them about $250 for tethering my phone, I apparently used about 15mb by tethering. I got pissed and told them I never did that and they said the best they could do is reduce the bill to $100, I took what I could get.
After talking with them, I realized that I always connected my phone to my computer in order to recharge it during the night (it's more convenient and safer then using the wall jack, the wall jacks are in places people can step on my phone). I figured I must have been accidentally tethering with it.Anyways, I still wanna use my computer to recharge the phone when it needs recharging. So how do I disable the tethering to make sure this doesn't happen again? Also, is there a good way for me to confirm that tethering is disabled?
I've tried several times but the message I'm sending with the photo seems to just hang with the timer symbol to the right of the message. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if there's another step I'm leaving out.
