Hello, I am new to the android market. I am coming from a BlackBerry Storm2 and one of the most helpful features I am missing on this phone is the ability to list my contacts by last name. Anyone know how to do this or an app to download that will allow it? I have looked and haven't located one yet. Any help is appreciated! Thx...
Ok, so I'm at the point of "irratness" lets pretend that's a word
Im wondering if anyone else is having the same issues as me...
With my bluetooth connected, my headset will launch the phone commands for voice dialing... problem is, I can't hear the damn prompts off the phone... the volume is super low
After I disconnect my bluetooth to make a call from the handset all of a sudden my phone volume is through the roof... Its not super deafening loud, but its loud enough (at the lowest volume setting) that I worry about blowing out the speaker
If you subscribed for the Family Locator service try my Family Locator application for Androids. It emulates web browser to send location request and get result from https://fl.vzw.com but displays it on Google Maps view instead of web page. Also you can pass coordinates to Google Maps/Navigation app. Search market for Family Locator (V). Try free Demo version first. Before this make sure that location service works for you on official Verizon site https://fl.vzw.com
For those who are not getting the battery life you would like...
Along with the other power saving ideas mentioned in this forum... You might want to try turning OFF the "AUTO" mode in the display brightness setting, and then manually set your display brightness to the absolute lowest level...
This is still plenty bright on my unit... and this has made a considerable increase in my battery life...
Let us know if this noticeably helps with your battery life...
I got my droid x the day it came out. I can't go to dl the update manually. They said at the verizon store that google would have to push the update to my phone when they get around to it. Kinda not cool. The customer service people said to give it until the middle of the month, but that's only 3 days away now. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to get the update. Has this happened to anyone else?
I was curious about other peoples comments since various versions of the Droid have been out for a while.
I have seen countless apps in the Market that provide anti virus protection, one (lockout) by Verizon themselves. Yes, I understand the purpose of these programs being in the IT field. However, I have to ask is anyone using them? I guess the answer might be yes. But the reason for this post is to ask why?
It's very possible I am missing something since I know little about the Android operating system. But thus far I have heard of no infections or attempts to infect a "phone". Nor do I know if it's even possible. I am guessing yes it's possible like most things if people want to me mischievous and are determined.
Is anyone having the same problem with the People widget? I set up all the favorites , the screen looks like the HTC sense screen , but when I press on the persons picture to dial it comes up with there info and then i have to press the phone icon, so 2 clics instead of one. (the HTC sense all you have to clic is the picture and it dials.
For all the FROYO hype...just not understanding or feeling the amazement. Yes, there are some nice UI upgrades (ie camera button), but ther seem to be more quirky things going on...just not sure whether these are bugs or my lack of understanding the update; please advise (I have gone from LOVING my Droid X to merely liking it)
1. When using the general search (google), on 2.1 you would get a listing olf local items (ie contacts, applications) as well as web findings, Now using google search(all) only renders web findings. You can switch to find contacts, apps, etc...however each time you do a new search you default back to google (all) which only finds web sites...no real way of doing a thorough search of all relevant information a...

For those who have updated to 2.2, do we now have flash support for web browsing? I checked my phone and it says I have a system update available, so I assume it's 2.2 (I really don't know much about how the update works). I haven't done it yet because many of you seem unhappy with 2.2 on the X so far. The only reason I want it is if it now gives us flash support on the web. Any input?
Ok so i've been reading about how the task killer is not needed and even harmful to my beloved X so i thought i'd see how it goes without it. I was driving myself crazy closing apps every time I did something my head was about to explode. My question is that I listen to a lot of music. How long will the music player continue to run since I can no longer "turn it off"? Thanks guys and i'll let you know how the battery performs without the TK.
I updated to 2.2 early this afternoon, and phone worked fine all throughout the day until I got home. Now I have no signal in my apartment when I used to have at least 2 bars. Text's won't send, can't make calls, etc. I've done soft/hard reset but no good, tried *228 option 2, no good. Anyone else having issues with the 2.2 update?
