Motorola Xoom :: Updating Profile Still Requires Nonsense Info?
May 13, 2011
I went to update my profile since I saw the message that they had separated the tablets from the phones.Not quite.They still require you to enter a serial number for your phone or you can't save the profile.Even though I'm not using a Motorola phone.I put the tablet serial number in there and it took it. So I put the tablet serial number two places.No harm done just irritating.If they aren't any smarter than this that they can't even organize a logical personal info sheet where the entries pertain to what you are entering info about ... what kind of stuff are they making?Incompetence really torques my jawInfo sheets for phone users should be COMPLETELY SEPARATE from info sheets for TABLET users, not combined
If you would like to be included in Motorola Feedback Network activities it is important that your information stored in your profile is correct. I just reviewed mine and found that my serial number (IMEI) was only displaying the first 14 characters. I was able to update and save the full 15 so it is good now.
Ever since I got my Xoom back from the 4G upgrade I have a problem with no internet access and generally a restart seems to wake it up. is anyone else experiencing thisIt might be my routine combined with geographic locations at specific times (e.g., commutting.)
It asks for my tablet's "serial number" for this forum profile. My tablet has a serial number field that is completely different and separate from the MEID, which is what you usually want. Which information do you want, and can you please clarify it and give an example and number of characters expected on the profile page?
I can't figure out why my xoom no longer saves my log in info, not only on this site but on all sites all the time! I used to only have to enter my password for email ,banking and other sites like these because my user name was always saved but now when i click on "keep me logged in" nothing happens and i have to enter all my info for every site i'm on now every time i go on them, very annoying.
I have read the discussions on the screen glare on the xoom and do not find the answer to my question. I was told by sales person to install the Zagg Screen protectant. I did so and what a mess, so I took it back to Best Buy and they replaced it and installed it for another $15. I went outside to take some pictures of a quail and her 15 babies and could seen nothing on the screen. Tried different ways. Then I thought about doing work or play with my Xoom outside on the deck and that was a lost cause too.
What can I do to get rid of the glare on the Xoom screen with the Zagg installed? Can I put something over the Zagg? It was not cheap and I paid to have it installed.The person who answered my question I though was just making a joke. I tried full brightness of the screen and my sunglasses. IT WORKED> Kind of dark but good enough to see what I was taking a picture of I need to find the name of the last reply because that was the one with the answer that worked.
Has anyone else received an OTA to Android 4.1.2 for their Xoom Wifi only? I got the update on Friday but did not receive an invite to a soak test so I believe that this update was an update to all US Xoom WiFi tablets.
After installing app updates yesterday and today, I noticed app did not clear update section at the top of installed apps. It happened while updating Dungeon Defenders yesterday. It finally cleared to installed after reinstalling Dungeon Defenders three times. Could not uninstall Dungeon Defenders while trying to clear the app from the update list. Just kept reinstalling. Finally stopped showing on update list. App started normally and ran afterwards. Same thing with Angry Birds this morning. Still not off Update app list.
I have discovered that the list of email messages in the corporate email widget stops updating shortly after a reboot. It continues to display a static list of messages. If I tap the widget to open email, I find many new, more recent, messages in my inbox.
I have been having a problem where the email widget is not updating except when I reboot. the email is working and syncing but the widget itself is not showing the new mail. The gmail one is working fine. Also the calender widget does not change dates until reboot. If all else fails Reset I guess but I am trying to avoid that. I have a Canadian Xoom running Android 3.2 no Root.
I found one issue that seems to be very irritating with my BB which other phones have done fine in the past and I cant figure out how to on my Tour. My brother texted me with a new phone number he is now using so I hit options in the test message and then the only thing is "add to contacts" so I choose that but it is a brand new contact.Why cant I choose to update a contact?
Ever since I have updated to iOS5, I have been having problem with updating my song info (artist, album. song title however seems to work). I manage my songs manually and they are shown to be updated in itunes. However this is not the case when I browse my songs in the music app in my iphone.
I have tried various ways such as switching off 'group by album artist' in setting, updating ID3 tags, but these did not work. The only way to get the songs showing up normally is if I add my songs to the itunes library, change the info there and drag them back to my iphone in the Device section. Is there any way I can update my song infos in the device section and have them correctly showing in my iphone like the old days?
I just received a Motorola w385 from Page Plus and when I try to check my text messages, I get an error that says "Inbox requires Setup." and then forces me to exit.I've tried calling Page Plus but their CS is overloaded. Any ideas how to fix this?
My W385 requires a BT50 battery. The Motorola replacement battery is $25, and is rated at 850 mAh. There are aftermarket batteries available at 1/3 the price, but although it is referred to as a BT50 replacement, it is rated at 1,000 mAh. Is the difference in ratings a problem?
Using GB, every time I activate GPS in settings it asks me if I agree to the terms. I can avoid this by using a third party widget to activate GPS. But is there any way to get the warning agreement to take the first time and not have to see it each time I use settings?
At home I have a wireless router and a modem. When accessing the internet via a netbook running Windows (XP and 7), I first connect to the router and then log-on to the ISP, which I've set up as a network connection with the relevant username and password.Despite a favourable tariff for data, 3G connection here is not great. So when at home I'd like to improve browsing speed by linking to the broadband/DSL. So far I can get it to connect to the router, but I haven't yet found a way to log on to the ISP, or even somewhere to put in the account details.I'd be very grateful if some kind soul could point me in the right direction in how to configure my phone, which currently appears to be smarter than I am.
I lost my data signal AGAIN while uploading a picture from Facebook. Now I have this orange triagle in the upper left corner of my screen and on the drop down menu is says "Download requires network" which I can not get rid of.
I do not want my contacts stored ANYWHERE except on my phone and on my laptop (Outlook; not using exchange server).However, when I try to create a new contact, the phone asks me to select a gmail account.It does not offer any option to select something other than a gmail account.I have accessed all menu settings and have limited my gmail accounts to only syncing gmail.There must be an option to create a new contact without linking it to a gmail account.
I have recently switched to a XPRT and have been having a problem with the phone audio (speaker, earpiece and mic) that requires me to reboot the phone EVERYDAYAll other audio functions work properly. Speaker for music, notifications, phone rings...but when i try to make or receive a call, there is no audio on my end (whether on speaker, earpiece or bluetooth) and the microphone is dead as well.The only way to resolve this issue is to power cycle (reboot) the phone. THIS HAPPENS EVERYDAY!
Is there a way to connect to a bluetooth device that requires a code to be entered? I am trying to connect to my Microsoft Sync radio so I can stream music. The MA detects the Sync but when I click on it it just says connection fails. The Sync requires that you enter a code so I assume this is the reason for the connection failure.
