    Has any one figured out how to bypass the Facebook and other online pictures that open up when trying to look at pictures in the photo gallery? I have a grandfathered 150MB data plan and don't wish to use precious data when trying to show off pictures of my adorable dachshunds.

    I couldn't so I went to the Market and got the older Gallery and I use that instead.

    Go Into the "My Accounts " app and delete facebook . Then you have to delete the pictures 1 by 1 . Thats what I did .

    In reply to the OP, I use QuickPic. Works great, os lightweight and fast with several viewing options.

    Try this: Backup the data on the card, format (using the phone), copy the data back.


    To format the SD Card, do Menu > Settings > SD card & phone storage > Unmount SD card > Format SD card

    That's exactly why I installed QuickPic. It doesn't get FB pics from my friends- only shows my photos. Why in the world Moto thought everyone would want other people's photos on our phones is beyond me. If I want to see them, I'll go to their FB page.

    Remember to put all your pics in the DCIM directory, if it's not on your SD card make one.
    I all my pics are in sub-directories in the DCIM, family, dogs, camera etc. So you can find the pic later.

    That's a helpful suggestion because it keeps your pictures in one place, but from a technical standpoint, it's not required. Android scans all non-hidden folders for new media when a drive is mounted.

    Removing FB profile updates from Photo Gallery for Droid X2

    Under your All Apps menu,
    • Select the Social Networking app.
    • Select and hold the profile update notification.
    • When the "Select" menu appears, you will have the option to either Like, Write on wall, Poke, etc.
    • At the very bottom, you will notice the "Hide social activity"
    • Select this option and accept the following prompt.
    The update will fall from your gallery and you should be good to go.

    The General has spoke...

    Ok, General, I got so excited when I saw this that I grabbed up my phone and started looking. Could you tell me where I might find this Social Networking app and what do you consider my All Apps Menu?? I clicked on the icon that brings up all my apps and Social Networking is not among them. So, I went to the settings, manage applications and it is in there in the all apps area. But I can only uninstall it or force stop. So please tell me where I go to find the Social Networking App that will actually let me manipulate it?? Thank you ever so much!!!

    Wendy

    Hi Wendy, Here is a link that should help.
    https://motorola-global-portal.cust...93/~/droid-x2---social-networking-application

    The social networking icon is a teal-ish color with three human silhouettes. I believe it is one of the default apps that appear on the x and x2.

    Hope this helps!:motdroidvert:
