that 6.1 update became available when i first picked up the phone about 5 or six days ago.the lady who sold me the Razr also had a Razr and was waiting for reviews before upgrading because her phone was working perfect.
Does anyone have trouble when tapping on the screen? Mine sometimes doesn't do anything when I tap on it : ( I'm thinking I should of gone with the resound phone instead ...
I have a question maybe you can help me with!! I downloaded the JD Ultimate and I used the Balanced setting. I contacted JD about this and they came back and ask me what kind my phone was and if I downloaded from Amazon or the Android market. Of course I told the Droid Razr and Android market...but they have not responded since then and that was earlier today. I can tell that JD was helping with my battery but no wonder....nothing works!! LOL
Okay, my question. I have done everything I know possible to cahnge it, but aside from totally diabling JD, I cannot connect to anything...the market, facebook, the browser nothing. Is there no way to have a data connection without disabling JD?
I would really appreciate your help! I had to take my husband to have oral surgery today and for 2 hours I could not get a data connection to do anything! After I finally disabled I sent a message to JD customer support...for all the good it did!!
Thank you for your help in advance!!!
Wow this poor thread just got all sorts of walked on. I'm just going to do a blanket post and hope I cover all the replies I had in mind.
List Running Apps:
To see the running (i.e. currently loaded in RAM and requesting CPU cycles)applications do this:
From any Home screen tap Menu>>Manage Apps Once in the App Manager, tap on the far right-hand Tab labeled 'Running'
This is a very robust app, if you dig into it you'll find it does an amazing number of things. Automatically.
For purposes of energy saving I created some custom actions - one automatically connects to any of my memorized WLAN's. Another, when it senses that WLAN is connected, disables the 4G radio - this does NOT stop SMS or phone calls. Yet another says 'Whenever I'm charging I must be at a location where there is a memorized WLAN, so connect to it"
Do you see the chain here? Everything leads back to shutting down my 4G when I don't need it Frankly, if I'm in my office @ work, I don't need 4g so why let it chew my battery? If I'm at home or a friends where there are memorized WLAN's, similarly, why do I need 4G? WLAN is a much better consumer of your battery's finite life expectancy.
JD worked very well on my DroidX and transient Bionic - however on the Razr I've not seen an appreciable increase in battery life. I'm not against it and certainly YMMV so if it works for you, use it. I would not however pay for it, there isn't enough difference in the Free vs. Paid versions to make it worthwhile for the avg user. JD and Smart Actions together make up the Ultimate version of JD.
Again, YMMV, if ya' want it, buy it.
I would be very cautious here. If you are a first time owner of a smart phone, how do you know what to kill? This is #9 for me (PPC-6700, Sch-i760, Omnia, Omnia II, OG Droid, Droid Incredible, DoidX, DroidX2, Droid Bionic and finally this little jewel known as the Razr) AND I'm a Network Engineer(with 21 years experience) - but I don't usually mess with auto-killing apps or automatic task managers. You've heard of the Law of Unintended Consequences, right?
You simply should not have to auto-kill applications on a GB based Android - the manufacturer(Motorola)and vendor(Verizon) aren't going to intentiionally set the device up to fail - yes they often make mistakes but there are usually specific fixes for those. Blindly killing everything you see running in the Running Apps list is NOT a good choice (IMHO).
Some of you may well have a defective device - that does happen. Happened to me with my first Incredible(IMO the most aptly named smartphone ever!)and happened to me with the Bionic, faulty devices do slip through. I wold pursue that angle if you recently got the device - if you are past your NQA warranty return then you may well end up with a refurb phone but as long as it functions, right?
