I just ordered the MAXX (took advantage of the leap day sale) and got the sale discount $100 + they honored my NE2 of $30 = $169.99. Will receive (at the latest) 3/14.

Re: Any validity to no one will really be "grandfathered" in on any current unlimited plans?

in the Article: Verizon Confirms Tiered Data Plans to Start in July forum

Yes, we will be "grandfathered" as long as you don't change data plans. If you decide to upgrade to a 4G phone that may be considered as a data plan upgrade. I sent an email and actually discussed on the phone with Verizon. He basically said to watch the website for an official date for the tiered pricing. I have the Droid 1 and have been messing with ROM's which added life to my OG - waiting ...

It causes my Droid to reboot on its own (happened 3-5 times). Also randomly my screen will turn on.

I am running FRG83D and I recently upgraded Juice Defender. I am not sure if Juice Defender is causing the reboots or if it is FRG83D. Any thoughts or ideas?

2.2 update - now I have to enter a PIN
Sep 30, 2010, 8:09 PM
in the Motorola Droid X forum

I have 3 email accounts on my phone: GMail, Yahoo & Corportate. Apparently after the update the Corporate Sync forces me to enter a PIN whenever I answer a call, unlock the phone, etc. I am going to delete the corporate account. I do have some questions: Has this happened to anyone else? If I re-add the corporate account, will I be forced to enter a PIN again?

I just don't - I am not in my car enough, plus I don't use the GPS (google maps) much.

I try to only charge my phone at 20% or less. The only time I charge the phone with a higher battery % is when I will be leaving the house and need to make sure my phone doesn't die (I don't have a car charger).

I did the manual update. So far I like what I see. I tried flash - no go. I went to the Market to see if I had to download it - not there. Am I missing something?

I have no idea about the official release date, but the July 13th date you are speaking of was just a rumor.

Email App Issue/Question

I use the Email App (ever since upgrading to 2.1). I setup 2 accounts: 1) Work - POP3 2) Personal - POP3 When I responded from my Personal email, the contact received the body of an email from my work acct. The email address was right, but the email body was wrong. Then a week later (could have been less) I opened an email in my Personal Acct and the subject was correct, but the body was from an email that was from ...

Thanks, but I am looking more for something like this: http://www.motoroladroidaccessories. com/motorola-droid-aluminum-case-8199.html This one (http://www.amazon.com/Body-Glove-Snap-Motoro la-Doid/dp/B002XNJCBA) is ok to, but I don't have a need to be able to slide the keyboard out - I am fine with virtual keyboard. But I would like it in a rubber case (similar to the boot for the BB Curve). I just want a case that I could put the phone in my pocket. Currently I have the Velcro side holster from Verizon.

Looking for a good case!
Apr 22, 2010, 12:05 PM
in the Motorola Droid forum

I currently have the full body Invisible Shield by Zagg. I use the Verizon Velcro Case for carrying the phone on my belt. I am looking for a case/glove. I do not need to use the slide out keyboard so a case/glove that covers the device (similar to a Blackberry Boot). A Rubber Case or Hard Case will suffice. Thanks in advance!

I am assuming that there won't be a separate icon, but if you click on the Android Market icon there should be 3 options: Apps - Games - Verizon. I assume you would click on Verizon for the Verizon Market.

FknTwizted, I setup my Earthlink Account in Gmail and it worked great until yesterday. I haven't been receiving notifications on my Droid. I use Advanced Task Manager to kill processes. I ran a test and sent 1 email to my Gmail and 1 to Earthlink. Only the Gmail email was received on the Droid, but both were received in their respective accounts (checked from PC). Is there something I have to double checkin on the Droid or Gmail? Thanks in ...

Got the Droid today - haven't turned it on yet (currently at work). Verizon has definitely cut down on packaging - the box that it came in wasn't much bigger than the Droid itself. I also have the Zagg InvisbleSHIELD. Any recommendations on a case? From a previous phone I have the Jawbone BT (first release) Headset. I will review this weekend!

I have never owned a smartphone, but I do work in IT. So if figure I will have some growing pains, but working with computers day in and day out should work to my advantage. I am also sure I will be in the 99.99 percentile. Seeing Mupi's and Menno's comments on here have really helped with my decision. Plus they seem like they are willing to help (if someone has a question). So Mupi & Menno if ...
