Re: Software Update
Oct 17, 2012, 2:19 PM
in the Samsung Droid Charge forum

Is there any way to get new software. There are apps in the store now that will not work with this phone. A phone should at least be supported until your two years are completed.

in the Samsung Droid Charge forum

Wow, I have this phone as a replacement to the Bionic. This phone is, as you mention, horrible. I can sit and watch the battery die. It shuts itself off and won't come back, then it comes back on its own. It is very slow. In fact, I may not want another Android phone after having the Bionic and now the Charge. I still have a year on my contract or I would probably migrate from Verizon to ...

You were lucky, congrats. What amazes me is that I still see good reviews come out on this phone. There was one this week in Laptop Magazine...these people can't possible be actually using this phone. J

I no longer want the Lemon Bionic, what are my options
Oct 25, 2011, 3:08 PM
in the Motorola Droid Bionic forum

I got this phone on the first day it came out, so its too late to just take it back. However, I think it is a lemon, I don't want to wait for a November fix that might come and that might work, and I am paying for services that are not functioning (i.e. data). Do I have any option for getting rid of this awful phone? If I break my contract and pay the $350, could I get a ...

Bionic is basically not functional at the moment
Oct 20, 2011, 8:51 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Well, I potentially love my Bionic. But if Verizon can't fix the data problem soon, its not worth the price of a brick. If the problem is the network and not the phone, the iPhone will have the same problem. 3/4 of the time, I have no data access, and I have tried every trick I have found on the web to turn it on. Since this is a Google phone, no data is a huge hit.

I sort of solved the Car Home situation. You have to put the phone into the dock, then plug it into the Power. I was able to get the home screen to have apps I wanted, especially Google Music by adding it to the Car Home screen. All of this should have been documented. Its weird that accessing preferences is not always done in the same fashion. I was able to see the files on my SD card by using a ...

maybe the worse device I have ever owned

in the Motorola Droid Bionic forum

The more I explore this phone, the more I am disappointed. Today, I tried to use the Music application. This is the app that shows up in car mode. It will only access music that i have stored on the phone, it should connect to Google Music Beta. I read that Pandora was possible in car mode, I sure don't see that. Today, I decided to see what files I have on the SD card, since I have moved every ...

Re: Got my Bionic last night

in the Motorola Droid Bionic forum

I can follow up now. This phone has some weird problems. Most of the time, I can't get a signal, and I live in a good signal area. I get out of memory error messages sometimes when downloading an app, the gallery app does not work as well as on the original Droid. It's not any faster now tha my original Droid was. I got the car dock today and ther does not seem to be any automatic docking ...

How To
Sep 12, 2011, 9:48 AM
in the Article: Review: Motorola Droid Bionic forum

Can we have a how to section here? My biggest problem with my Bionic is the keyboard. I liked the one on my original Droid better. The one on the Bionic does not give you feedback for the letter you just pushed, it just lights up. The Droid would repeat the letter and that was a great confirmation. The other thing the Bionic does not do is advance to the next word if you choose the word they offer ...

So far, I like it. I have no problem with the screen. I am keeping my fingers crossed about the battery. Joey

I think I am with you on this. I just hope they have them in the store on my home this evening. Joey

in the Verizon Wireless forum

Actually, I have been thinking about this. Since I have the iPad2, I am wondering why I still need data on my phone. I may switch back to a plain phone and reserve the Internet for my tablet.

Oh yeah, we have the Thunderbolt...forgot that. Joey

i'm bored with my Droid now. If I did not have my iPad, I would go nuts. I wish the new phones had come out in August.

August 4 has been pushed out there as the date when lots of phones would be appearing in Verizon. I guess everyone got it wrong. Joey

not much reaction to this phone
Jul 9, 2011, 8:51 AM
in the Motorola Droid 3 forum

I sure don't see much comment about this phone. Seems like a lot of people are holding out. Which costs Verizon more money, selling phones cheaply every two years, or us keeping our phones longer and not buying new ones. This is the longest I have ever kept a phone.

Re: Tiered data is good, just not the way VZW did it
Jul 9, 2011, 8:49 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

I don't know how much it costs Verizon to offer these services, and I am not sure whose report I would even believe, maybe if I saw it on factcheck.org. However, I don't think they are charging us so little that it hurts, especially considering I am already paying them for a home phone, television, and Internet. I am like you though, I use WiFi whenever I can.

Are you sure you want to keep streaming with tiered data? J

I agree with everything you said. We can only hope that some real ISP comes along to challenge Verizon, or the government decides to regulate ISP prices.

Re: Why I prefer unlimited data....
Jun 30, 2011, 9:55 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Yes, me too. I think this sucks. I have never gone over 1gb and I use it all I want. But, I think the new prices are too high (considering I already pay Verizon once for home internet) and I really don't like having to worry about it. So much for competition keeping the prices down - HA :) ISPs have too much power. Joey

I told you they don't care if you leave. That is how they are in the stores too. But, the others are the same. J

Re: Verizon? Amazing responses
Jun 16, 2011, 8:04 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Actually, I think everyone knows Verizon has the worst phones and the best network. It's almost depressing, but it's been that way forever. And if you complain, go elsewhere, they don't need you. But, its not just Verizon, its almost all USA service companies. We let it happen.

Way to go Verizon for being first with the new M. Photon

Thank you. That does it for me with this phone. I like that the Netflix is already there though

Can you take Bing off of this phone, or at least add Google Search back?

Re: why no love for LG?

in the LG Revolution forum

I have had one really bad LG phone a long time ago, but i have never had a bad Moto phone. But, I have a question about LG that is spurred by a remark I saw here. How fast is LG to come out with software upgrades? I saw that as a complaint against Samsung here. I don't really understand though, because I thought all of the software updates were pushed by Verizon instead of the manufacturer. Thx, Joey

It is interesting to read the first two reviews here for this phone, they seem contradictory to me in terms of the battery. Joey

in the Verizon Wireless forum

Would depend on what the others offer but they will all follow the leader in prices. Even though I read my email all the time I have never approached 1gb. Still I don't loike worrying about it. I think I pay Verizon too much for the Internet between Fios and this. I am a firm believer in government regulation but I don't think that will come back any time soon.

From what I have read most people seem to agree with you on this. I will have my new phone by the end of summer, so far it would be the TBolt.

So far...that is what I am doing too.
