[Engadget]Andriod text messaging bugs and alarm clocks that dont work - Page 5

post #41 of 61
I was having an even worse issue. Texts refused to send. I nearly threw my nexus one because of it. The godamn thing would just not send a text. Finally, Cyanogen made a feature in their ROM to lock the messaging app into memory during the 6.0 update. I have yet to have that issue since.

As for the article, I haven't personally experienced these bugs, but I will vote to get it fixed.

haha i had that env2 as well but i got tired of verizons crap software being so restrictive.

30 dollar data plans are garbage so I agree, I don't need unlimited, most people are unaware of how much they don't need. I dont even hit 2gb a month and that's always downloading crap off the market.

That's the downside with verizon, they overcharge for everything, but people stick with them because their coverage and service is some of the best. Of course they can't please everyone so theres always going to be an unhappy camper but in the 5 years I've been with them , I've had like 3 dropped calls.

I have never had a messaging or alarm bug before (using Android a little over a year) but I have have other strange bugs like a contact not saving immediately after entering it or phone calls not wanting to hang up.

The weird thing is, most of the bugs I have seen are a one-time only event. I have had many things happen that I never saw again.

Overall an awesome device and operating system (Froyo 2.2). I wouldn't give it up for the world. Seriously. I have my Droid so tweaked and modded I wouldn't know where to begin starting over again with a new device.

I had this headache with my HD2 (Android ported onto it) and found out that my APN settings (mobile carrier SMS settings) just weren't right. Simply changing the APN settings in the control panel fixed it.

when you try to select the 2nd caller in the list, the call always goes for the 1st..you can only call the 2nd one after you do a scroll..
why dont you flash it with CG 6 and reduce the screen density to 110.
you will get to appreciate your wildfire more

this has happened to me on a few occasions, The 'recent calls' list does not update fast enough from hanging up and pressing call(last dialed number)

Ive had alarm clock bugs before I set two alarms so it wasn't a big deal. I think it just did not go off and it stayed set.

I gave my En-V2 up for a couple of reasons. The En-V 2 is a one-trick pony. Well, two. It's tough as hell and it plays music. My Droid, on the other hand, can:

Act as a bubble level
act as a metal detector
tell me all sorts of info on GPS satelites
check out Wi-Fi signal strength
Get people's attention
act as a ruler
act as a speedometer
act as a satnav
Allow me to be an arse to people who call me(<3 soundboards)
play games
act as a modem whether Verizon likes it or not
Act as a netbook
play music
play videos
play movies
play games
remotely control my TiVO
Measure G-forces in all three directions
act as a seismometer
Porn on the go
real-time currency conversions
Tough as hell
act as a flash drive
still camera
video camera
digital audio recorder
portable weather station
flashlight
police scanner
portable radio, mainly because I have an FM station worth listening to
Encyclopaedia


Then there's the durability. It's just as tough as my En-V 2 was. And the cost. I paid a whopping 20 bucks for it! Let's Talk!, the cell phone department within Walmart, was having a crazy good deal on Moto Droids about the time I came up for upgrade. So bam. Went for it. Can't say I regret it, either. The Droid is a swiss army knife in cell phone clothes, and I haven't even scratched the surface of how many apps there are and what those apps can do.
