So.. Anyone overclock their phones? (PDA's?) - Page 3

post #21 of 36
I used that omap on my old HTC Prophet (Orange SPV M600), and it went from 200mhz to 260mhz or something not too much change in battery life but i didnt notice a huge difference in speed either except when opening pdf's and stuff.

Have your 3rd one replaced asap (before 1 year warranty) If it's out of warranty then this isn't an option. But make something up, you drop calls every day, your phone shuts off by itself randomly, things that the tech can't duplicate. Never mention battery life or problems during this encounter.

After your 3rd replacement, they are allowed to put you into a different model phone close to the price you paid when you bought it. Just be nice, ask 'Since I've had this problems with this phone for the 3rd time, Can I switch to a different model. They may tell you no. Ask for the manager, then very politely explain all the problems you've had. Mention that you haven't had these problems with other verizon phones, just the chocolate. They will put you into a different model. It's not difficult at all. You may not even have to speak with a manager since it's policy. Well, not policy, but allowed. Just remember to be very very nice about the whole thing. If you go in with attitude, they hate that.

But that should fix your problem. They may offer you a couple different models to choose from. Pick whatever floats your boat. Hope that helps...

EDIT: This only applies to Verizon. And to everyone who has verizon. Give it a shot. It's an excellent way to get into a different model phone. But again, you need 3 swap outs within the first year of having the phone. By the way, the least problematic phone I see for repairs are Samsungs. The most that come in are LG/motorola, but I only account that due to the fact that like 75% of verizons phones sold are either motorola or LG so naturally we'd see them more often.

Thanks for the advice. Actually I might not have to make something up. On the first phone the recharge jack went bad. The second phone's screws came out making the face fall off (supposedly a defect and happens all the time according to them), and not fixable. This third one is about to do the same thing even though that problem had been "resolved" by the manufacturer supposedly. I'll have to see how long I've had this contract because I think it's been over a year.

By nuked software, I meant that it seems the razr has different software than the rest of the verizon phones. Some of the menus look much different and have less functionality. I was just wondering if there was any way I could flash the software from newer phones onto mine to get the flashy new themes.

People have tried and failed. I've tried myself. The software will go onto the phone, thats the easy part. But for some reason, the phone will no longer connect to a verizon cell site or recognize a tower. Verizon cripples their phones on purpose unfortunately. Verizon's PDA's on the other hand, aren't crippled.

My Q isn't overclocked, but I've turned off the scaling and performed some "speed hacks" via the registry (Among many other registry hacks )

If anyone plans on overclocking their PDA or phone, an extended life battery will make a world of a difference. Just remember to get one from ebay, because buying them from Verizon or a brick and morter store will be extremely expensive.

I think I would need more OC head room if I were to overclock my Nokia 5300. Blew the graphics processor two days ago! No kidding. The display is a garbled mess until the replacement comes.

Nope, my N95-3 doesn't need overclocking as I doubt it would load the camera any faster.
I've already lowered the power used by the wifi to get a little more juice out of it.(100mW to 10mW)

The two most battery impacting things on a normal phone (non-PDA) are making phone calls, and screen backlight. Easy way to get a boost in your battery life would be to dim the screen as dim as you can and be happy with it. And text message instead of calling. Calling drains the most, then screen backlight.

Hope this helps some...
