this is my first post so before grouching it up, i will say, overall this is a great phone..
However, there are a few things i have not been able to figure out. Let me say also that before i came here asking away i tried my best to figure these things out for myself, and searched the "Droid RAZR MAXX HD" forum here intently . Most of the online resources i have found for the problems either did not match my phone's user interface exactly and could not be followed, or, i followed exactly did not work.
And if this is at all relevant, i bought my phone in early Jan of this year and under my "about phone" it says "Android version 4.1.1 I guess this means i have the Android jelly bean 4.1 os.
1. Keyboard auto-correct:
My most frustrating problem has been the keyboard's auto-correct. In my user interface it shows "Language & input" and for keyboard it shows "Android keyboard(AOSP)". From there it shows "Text correction" and under that category it shows "Auto correction" and "Show correction suggestions". I turn "Auto correction" to "off" and "Show correction suggestions" to "Always hide". It simply doesnt work. When i text the words that my Razr doesnt like, it STILL replaces them with what it likes as soon as i hit the space bar or add punctuation. It would seem that there is some kind of bug with the system software and i havent found any solution for it yet.
2. Google Maps:
It keeps my search history. Doesn't seem there's any way to clear it although ive tried a few things
3. Email Notifications:
Cant get incoming message notifications. In the past i would as able to get email notifications on my phone but now it seems like i dont, and i have to check manually for incoming messages. In my email settings i have my "notification settings" checked on.
These last couple are things that are probably not possible with the current system software but if you have any ideas please go ahead.
4. Intermittent Audio Notifications reminders:
After receiving a notification(from say a text, missed call, email) that plays a notification sound and makes the phone vibrate, the green led will flash but what about and audio reminder if you miss it? Frequently i'm in a different part of the house when i initially get a notification and i would like to be able to hear it from the next room some time later, with out having to physically go over to where the phone is and see the green light intermittently flashing. By the way, my last 6 year old Motorola phone could do this and i miss it.
5. Better calendar notifications:
The problem here is that sometimes i want to be reminded of an event at a particular date/time and make sure i hear it! In the "Calendar" settings, "Ringtones" i am only able to assign a ringtone that i guess they would call a "notification ringtone" that is at max only a couple of seconds long. Its not something you would hear if if it was noisy or you weren't right next to your phone. After the short "Notifications" play, you can only see the light flash, which you would not see in the pocket. The "alarms" function would be a good workaround for this but you cannot set a specific date for alarms.
6. App security:
Is there any way to lock, or password protect any particular apps from anyone who i would not want seeing my content. It would be nice to be able to completely disable for instance someone seeing any incoming texts that i have. I know i can put a screen lock on my phone but thats not what i want.
For anyone that has input on any of these, thank you so much in advance.
