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 recently bought a second-hand 5800 XM with product code 0574326 and decoded to RM-356 MENA_D BLUE. I have the latest software 50.0.005 but the problem is I can't connect on UMTS network. I use the phone in Romania and RM-356 I think it should work here. Can anybody give me some advices ?
In Costa Rica we have 3G UMTS 850. I research BB Storm 2 and I am sure I saw that it has UTMS 850. Today I went to our provider (ICE) and they told me that Storm 2 is not umts 850 capable. SO anyone can confirm if it is or NOT. Can I change firmeware or get other type Storm or?? I really like Storm and would like to make it work. I have Storm 2 9550 and Storm 9530 now.
my ATRIX 4G toggles from UMTS to HSPA and back all the time. i see that on the mobile network type under settings--> about phone--> status.
After each of these toggles the mobile network state (same status menu) is connecting (and then connected until next toggle)
i suspect this phenomena to be the reason that my internet connection is unstable (disconnected very often). I'm using original ROM w. MotoBlur of course. any way i could just disable the HSPA and check if the UMTS is enought ?
I have noticed that since my latest upgrade on my AT&T Galaxy S5 that my Calendar was not automatically syncing. I did find how to turn the syncing back on and how to choose what Google function to sync or not, but I have not found anywhere on the phone where I can adjust how often the syncing should take place. Like most people I would prefer to have this happen with some sort of time frequency so as to not use up too much of my data.
If I go into the "Mobile Network Engineering Screens" menu and then into "Cell Information..." the bandmode is set to "GSM850" which is causing me to get SOS. How do I change the bandmode to GSM900? I've tried clicking on GSM800 and selecting "All" but when I back to the menu and then back into Cell Information it changes back to GSM850.
Just bought the V10, setup everything that I had on my Note 3, including my Gmail account. Now Gmail does not notify immediately when an email arrives. I've gone into the Google account settings, and do not see anywhere where I can set the frequency of syncs. How to get it to instantly notify me of incoming emails?
Just upgraded from an S4 where I could set sync schedule to every 5 mins. Now told minimum possible is 15 mins or else have to set to manual. Used to be able to rely on mobile for alerts re important emails if away from computer and be able to get immediate updates as soon as turning back on after meetings etc. Is there any way around this?
My friend bought me at RIM, BlackBerry 9900but I cannot use it coz my service provider use 2100 mhz and my mobile is 1700 mhshow can I change the frequency into high frequency or can I return my phone?
I'm an engineer, and a collegue of mine has a friend (tedious link I know!) who works for a mobile phone manufacturer as an engineer. His take on the whole atenna issue is the following:
1. Sticking your hand over the join between the atennae short circuits them (we all knew this!)
2. The short circuit causes the two small antennae to form one much larger one (obvious I know...bear with me!)
3. This larger antenna has a different frequency to the small one.
4. The phone detects this and switches between frequencies.
Sounds simple in practice, but apparently it takes an age for the software to switch between the two frequencies. My guess would be this is to prevent the phone from hunting between signals. This could indeed be what Apple were talking about when they mentioned that the new phone placed lower demands on the network.
For the sake of making things easy to understand, have a read through the two artciles on Wikipedia and HowStuffWorks:
Basically, a Cell Tower has a finite number of frequencies it can use and assigns your phone to one of these frequencies. As you move around however, you'll be assigned different frequencies on different towers depending on what's available. As you can imagine, if a phone is super sensitive to variations in signal quality, it can reach a point where it jumps continuously between cell towers, placing high demand on all the switching hardware in the network. In reality, the user wouldn't notice any change in call quality if it stayed on one tower. By placing a delay in the frequency switching on the phone, your call will no longer be shuffled around towers constantly and will instead stick to one cell tower for longer, reducing the amount of juggling the network servers have to do and hence reducing dropped calls.
Here in lies the problem. When you change the length of the antenna on the phone, you cut out it's ability to see one segment of frequencies. The phone then starts looking for another available frequency. This now takes forever. Although the frequency may well be avaible, by the time it's found it, the call has been dropped as the slightly weaking signal it is expecting as you move away from the original tower has completely dissapeared.
The design of the antenna is undoubtably a fundamental design issue, which has somehow been overlooked or ignored. Let's not get into the politics of that here. What this does highlight however is that, if the delay between frequency switching is removed, reduced or in some way made smarter, the switch will be so quick, it won't have any noticeable effect on your call as it will just be another frequency switch similar to that between a towers.
It always show that I have exercised 0 out of 4 days and wellness summary seems off as well. It shows I have 0% Intermediate and Vigorous activity, which has to be off based on my previous workouts. I also have worked out mutiple times this week, so I am nopt sure why it always shows 0 out of 4.
Is there a way to change how often Social Feeds update?I have a feeling it is killing my battery. I remember when I had a news app on my Bold.It completely destroyed my battery life since it kept checking for news updates throughout the day.
After my update to Gingerbread I thought I'd give the X10 email another shot. It syncs fine with my accounts but the "Inbox Check Frequency" keeps resetting to never despite several attempts to set it.
My question is about the circles widget. It is beyond frustration to me that it takes what seems like hours to update the weather. Even after touching the weather circle and it displaying the weather app, it still will typically not update. Maybe it's just me, but I see zero use in having a widget that tells me the weather from 2 hours ago. It is also incredibly annoying to be driving to work, the sun has been out shining bright for an hour and a half, it's 50-60F degrees outside, and I unlock the phone to see an image of the night sky and the moon, and a temp of 30F.
I would have more forgiveness if this was some random widget I downloaded from the Play store, but this came installed with the phone, created by Motorola, designed for my device. For the time being, I have actually removed it from the main screen because it has just become frustrating and I am tired of constantly tapping on the weather and hoping it will update. There doesn't even seem to be a refresh option once the weather opens. What I would really like, and what I have not found, is a way to change the frequency in which the weather is updated. Setting the location statically versus automatic doesn't seem to have an effect either. I am in an area with great signal, 4-5 bars, and always with LTE, otherwise I have WiFi, so it's not a network connection issue. It's not like I want it to update all the time while the phone is off either (and risk draining the battery), but when I unlock the phone, that seems like a good time for the widget to check and see if it's been more than X minutes since it last updated (X being the number I can configure).
I am hearing impaired and rely on the Maxx vibrate mode to catch messages.However the vibration is weak and only vibrates in two very short bursts.I cannot feel it.Is there a way to change the level and frequency of vibration? I didn't see anything is the Settings app.
