    what is the purpose of turning ON airplane mode when using wi-fi overseas,,,,

    and does this only have to do with using wi-fi overseas, or should this procedure be done always with wi-fi.

    thx, Vboy
    Turning on Airplane Mode would turn off the cell radio and help to reduce battery drain, especially if you go internationally where you would have no service.

    If your a developer and are loading apps for testing and have the unit plugged in, I would think you would Not want the screen to goto sleep.....
    Screen on or not, that has nothing to do with loading apps into the phone. The phone is still awake even if the screen is not.

    Yes it is, it's not for flashing the phone like was said by someone before the phone even launched.

    Thanks
    Every contact gets duplicated where? A little more info please.

Use told me standby @ 37%, display @ 12%, phone idle at 25%, android os @ 9% and rest of the stuff @ 5% or lower. I just don't get it my battery was gone in 9 hrs with light use IMO. Before the update I had much better battery life. I just wanted to see if I was being unreasonable before I decide to exchange my phone/battery. This was two days go viperboy. What do you think, exchange it?
    Yeah, that is pretty significant drain for barely using the device. Take it in and have it looked at, that's your best bet.

    VZW to VZW don't count.....Another Network, Yes...unless you have them in your Friends and Family list...
    Correct. Thanks for answering that.

    Nothing official that I have heard. I would doubt it though because as I was told by a Motorola rep, they found that for use in the browser and galley and things that multi-touch was more cumbersome to use than just double tapping. That is why this phone doesn't do that, so I hear.

    I disagree, but that is what Motorola chose to do with Verizon's Droid.

    Edit: It also does it if i just open a txt thread and let it sit there. Also when it happens i lose signal for a split second.

    Odd, any other 3rd party apps that might affect it? Did you try in SM and see if this happens? You could probably master reset to fix it, but I know you probably don't want to do that.

    Viperboy - Appreciate you helping us all out. I am using Google Talk for messaging. I have not sent or received any SMS messages, however, when I check my status on Verizon's website, it shows that I have 7 messages. I looked at the details and they are messages that I sent and received using gTalk. I sent an e-mail to Verizion and got a reply that they cannot tell anything until the actual bill comes out. Thanks in advance for your help. Norm

    Do you have similar (But not exactly the same) contacts within G-mail that are also in Exchange/Outlook?

    What I have seen to be the problem is when you have your Exchange/Outlook have something similar, and you import or setup on G-mail a slightly different version of the same contact. Normally, the phone should intelligently merge them, but I noticed when I just got laid off and tried to put some of my old Outlook contacts in there, sometimes dup entries are there due to small discrepancies that I need to resolve and merge to get them lined up properly. Look in the contacts themselves, some of them are separated by sections, showing where they are associated from.

    Many of us are having issues with the search hotkey. It seems to pop up all the time, and it's getting rather irritating. Is there a quick fix for this? I've looked to try to turn that feature off, but for some reason I can't. I'm not much of a 'voice activated' kind of guy, and when I want to look something up, I'll go right to google. Thanks.

    I agree, that voice search thing gets hit all too easily, and it is really annoying. I also would appreciate a tip. Thanks in advance.

    Wired headphone w/mic question

    All:

    I want to use my Droid for playing mp3s while I commute, and would like to have a functional set of headphones that can be used for phonecalls and music listening. So I would be looking for headphones with the following features:

    Inline mic
    Volume control
    Track forward/backward
    Track pause
    Call pickup
    Call end

    I've already tried the Z'agg headphone (no track forward/backward and kept falling out of my ears) and a pair of Schoche (only the pause worked). Somewhere along the way, I faintly remember a post on a forum that the music control functions may not work due to compatibility with Android, but then I could never find that post again, so not sure.

    Anyone able to offer a suggestion here? I'm pretty sure I could get everything I want with a bluetooth stereo headset, but my preference is wired.

    Thanks
