    Network Extender

    Long time reader, first time poster.....

    Anywho, got a new droid x and every once in a while there is an audio notification that says, "Network Extender". HOW DO I MAKE THE VOICES STOP?

    In the phone that is.

    Thanks

    lol, good thing you said in the phone.

    I don't know, I've got a Droid 2 which is very similar to an X and I've never heard that. Yours is the first post I've seen on this.

    Edit. A network extender is the device that you use to pull in a week signal from Verizon. It plugs into the wall. Why your X is looking for one or thinks it sees it, I have no idea.

    Do you or don't you have a network extender? I have a NE and the only time I get any audio from it is if I dial #48 Send. Then it says, "You are under network extender coverage" over and over if I am in range of the NE.

    As long as I don't dial #48, but I dial out regular, it will make a short audible beep when first connected to indicate that the call is being made under network extender coverage.

    Maybe a neighbor has one, and you are picking up and losing the signal.

    That would be my guess. If that is the case, the neighbor needs to call Verizon and learn how to designate only their phones as authorized devices for the NE and to exclude other devices.

    Aha.... Weird. The thing is, it didn't give me that notification prior to the froyo update and now it does.

    Oh, and thanks for the help peoples.

    One other question actually; is there a way to have my email accounts (I.E gmail and school account) to refresh more frequently than the standard amount of time? For example, my last bb storm2 didn't it instantaneously.

    Thanks again.

    Gmail should be able to set for instant push notification. Your school account should be able to set as low as 5 minutes, but if you want instant, you should forward to your Gmail acct.

    Is there a place that I can see the setting to ensure it is set for instant push notification?

    As for my prior issue, nope, I don't have a network extender.

    My 2.2. OTA X has Data Push as an option in the stock email app.

    I don't see any way to change the data fetch interval in Gmail, so it must be Push by default.
