Using SD Card Vs. Internal Memory

battery life

I love this phone but the battery life sucks. I stopped gettin online and I turned of a lot of stuff thinkin it wud help but the battery still dies after the phone has been on for roughly 4.5 hrs. my LG dare wasn't a smart phone but I could browse the web anytime I wanted and make phone calls and still get at least 7 hrs worth of battery life. how can I improve battery life on this phone other than simply not turning it on at all b4 I get home near my charger?
I easily get a full day out of mine. If I had better reception in my apartment, I could probably comfortably get two days of usage per charge. I'd recommend three things...

USB Charging Issues

Does anyone else have this issue?

When charging via usb, the comptuer recgonizes the phone, and lets me know the device is plugged in. Now I dont want to install the drivers to this computer so it pops up the unknown device message. I close it and thats it. But when I simply move the phone a bit the message pops up agagin. This happens all thetime when I bearly move the phone. I'm thinking this could just be a simple usb issue, I have not done any troubleshooting on this just want to see anyonelse ideas outside of the obvious.

recovering a lost Droid......

I was wondering if there was an app out on the market that helps you find your droid via a gps map on a laptop or something like that if I was to loose my phone...my friend had one for his blackberry so I figured Android being as big as it is would have something similar if not better....thanks In advance for any help or suggestions Very Happy

Droid Eris - 2.2

I am a novice when it comes to phones, especially the android OS but I'm learning more and more about rooting.


I am posting here to see if anyone else has had the question, and hopefully the answer as, to if the HTC DROID ERIS will be able to run 2.2 either w/ or w/o rooting..
we arent getting 2.2 Sad
As far as a OTA update being sent out its doughtfull that it will happen.....however I have seen a few 2.2 based ROMS over at xda's website for rooted users...hope this helps :-)

Adjusting Vibration

Was wondering if it was possible to increase or decrease the vibration on the phone. Curious because my wife's phone seems to be not as strong as mine. I can't find any settings ... thanks
You can change the vibration settings, but I believe that you need to do it separately for each notification. Thing is, I don't believe that many (or any) of the included apps allow you to change this. You can, however, download replacement apps in mo...

Help with facebook

My phone is in spanish when I log go to facebook. How do I get it back to English?
You'll need to be more specific. Are you using the Facebook site through the browser, or are you using the official Facebook app? Also, is it just Facebook that displays in Spanish, or is it all of the text within your phone's OS?

Manual Update to Android 2.1

Just in case you're still waiting for the OTA update to 2.1, here's a means of doing it early:

http://www.androidcentral.com/how-manually-update-yo ... »

This IS the official OTA release, albeit downloadable as a ZIP file. I'm in the process of doing it right now, and it seems to be working just fine. If the process appears to freeze up at any particular point (namely when deleting files), then BE PATIENT. It should resume shortly. I've been hearing that the process takes anywhere from ten to twenty minutes.
Did it work for you?

Has anyone had problems with speedials not being saved since the update. Voicemail is in the #1 spot, but I can not get the phone to save any more.
I also had this exact same problem. I contacted Verizon and walked through some steps with them, which just ended up bricking my phone. After they replaced my phone I received the OTA update again and had the same problem. I decided to resolve the iss...

Favorite Widgets (or Apps with Widgets) from Android Market

Since the 2.1 update, I've been far more interested in using widgets. I figured that it'd be nice for everyone to share which widgets they happen to use on a regular basis, as well as describe what they're like. Also, give everyone else an idea as to which sizes the widgets are available in (width x height, in tiles).

Don't bother listing built-in widgets or the HTC widgets (including the ones that you need to download). Those are obvious.

Word of the Day (4x1) - Download Dictionary.com from Android Market to get this widget. If you're into learning new words, then you'll get a kick out of this widget.

WxWidget (1x1, 2x2, 4x1) - Download The Weather Channel from Android Market to get this widget. The best feature that ...

My data plan if i get this

I have my 4th LG Dare which I have been notified requires the new $30 data plan. I have had problems with this device and the money hungry verizon employees said "well if u wait til february, u can upgrade to anything for $50 or less" etc....

I want the Eris but online it says i have to change my plan.

Is there anyway to bypass this?? or is there another GOOD touchscreen phone i can upgrade and not downgrade to?? i refuse to go back to buttons and phones with small screens
The LG Chocolate Touch, LG enV touch, and Samsung Rogue only require a $9.99/month data plan. The rougue and env touch also have full physical qwerty keyboards and the choc touch is touch screen only.

verizon has posted a "coming soon" update page in the eris support page

this was posted at www.androidforums.com. it gives a full list of what will be in the update for the eris. it is coming but it does not say for sure when. i am running a "leaked" version of 2.1 that came from htc/verizon and it works great. just thought I'd share the news.
Also just for everyone's information. There is a way to hold off the OTA and copy it from the phone before you dl and install it on your phone. Please check http://androidforums.com/htc-droid-eris/77290 -people-about-do-update.html for the steps on ho...
