Will do, thanks.
Added tip about changing the voice codec for better call quality and how to turn automatic text formatting off.
ChrisK this thread just keeps getting better. Nice work.......
Since they stickied it in these forums as a courtesy you SHOULD put a link to Droid forum's.net Gallery as well.
Some peeps put in a lot of work uploading walls here for everyone : )
Oh yeah, thanks for the idea. I'll post a link to the gallery of pics taken by the Droid too.
Nice list of questions and answers... Very informative..
Looks like they figured out the camera bug. Gonna update that.
wow, this is a very informative thread!! does the call quality procedure really works?
fell on my droid
I was on my bicycle the other morning and I took a fall. I had the Droid in a belt clip with the backside facing out. When I fell ,I landed on my left side where I hung the Droid from my belt, and my full body weight , 190 lbs, landed on the phone. Fortunately the ground was soft soil. The phone impacted the dirt and dug in about an inch or so. The back battery cover popped off and the battery flipped out and the battery compartment became jammed with florida soil. I picked myself , the bike and the phone up and in my haste dropped the phone, from waist height onto the concrete sidewalk. I settled down and gathered all my implements of destruction to assess damages. I cleaned the dirt out of the Droid and readjusted the bags and derailuer of my bike. I imagined the phone to now be a dirty dinged brick. Well after I cleaned it up and put it back together it worked just fine. No problems. Never had a cell phone stand up to a beating such as that. Can you beat that?
Seems like I get the echo problem more often with the -B codec on... but I"ll try it again.
Is it possible that towers in my area don't use -B well?
Is it an all or nothing thing.. .if so, why aren't all the phones running that?
What are the negatives?
Some cities don't have support for EVRC-B. I didn't think it would actually make it worse if you weren't in a supported area, so maybe it depends on location. The codec is just supposed to improve compression quality in the same amount of bits. If it does sound worse, I'd change back.
not to pick on you ChrisK but if this is going to be a FAQ and stickied it should be accurate.
What you have below needs to be changed to: the phone was not designed to go into landscape mode unless the keyboard is deployed.
Why won't my home screen switch to landscape mode when rotated?
Nobody knows yet, but so far everybody has this problem. This fix might be included with the next update.
Again it's not a problem and there is no fix.
I edited it to mention the fact that a lot of people did in fact have it rotating at one point, but then stopped. I removed the part about it being a bug or problem.
