    visual voice

    Hi, I got this visual voice thing. But it was the wrong one. My sons works fine he uses another one and it does not cost anything and this one does. But it wont let me use his because of this one. But it wont let me delete this one. I can delete any other apps, But this one is not under apps. Do I have to turn it back into how I got it to make it go away, if so how do I do that?
    Thank you

    Or you can use the old man method and hit it with a wrench.

    Trouble with Lookout Mobile Security

    Below is an issue and solution that I had with my Motorola Droid. The solution has not been "verified by others and by officials" but it worked for me. So I felt it was worth posting...


    Trouble with Lookout Mobile Security
    I have had Lookout Mobile Security on my phone pretty much since day one. My Droid is rooted. I recently updated my ROM to Bugless Beast V1.0 (the freakin Bomb by the way) and somewhere along the line it uninstalled my Lookout. When I tried to reinstall it from the Market it downloads it and tries to install but comes back with an error message saying something about not enough memory. I have installed several apps after this so I know it has memory. Anyone have any ideas or alternative to Lookout Mobile?

    The Solution...
    You probably need to uninstall it first, then download it again from the market. If "Lookout" isn't in your settings--manage applications, look for something like com.lookout. And uninstall that. Then go back to the market and you should be good to go.
    Solution posted by "gszeman"
    I guess it was confirmed by "brian.lookout" of support@mylookout.com

    this is not really an issue..... the screen will not turn with the default home w/o the keyboard out. this was done intentionally on OS development. Helix is an exultant replacement for the default home screen with the auto orientation feature.

    Major issue

    I am having a big problem with my motorola droid. I am currently using ChevyNo1 Froyo v4.1 rom. I have had a problem with my external speaker for about a week. I cant find out the problem at all and its really stressing me out. The external speaker works but only when i put it on speaker phone. Other than speaker phone no other sound will come out of it. When i try to play music the timer moves extremely slow and with the videos they play choppy but both with no sound. I have tried many things such as rebooting, battery pulls, uninstalling apps, restoring, even different roms. Someone please help me out of this jam.
