Htc Incredible - Does Dinc Only Use 3g As It Accesses New Data

Does the dinc only use 3g as it accesses new data? I rarely see a 3g signal on my phone and i live in memphis not far from verizon. Ive been with verizon for 4 years and have consistently received great signals on my other phones. But with the inc. I'll only notice i'm on 3g as i'm surfing the web or app market. When a new page loads, 3g lights up and signal increases, and after the page loads 3g signal is gone. Is this how the device is supposed to perform?

Ps: i realize signal strength is a reported issue with this device. So far i get speedy performance without dropped calls etc. I just wasn't sure if the 3g signal activity on my device is actually the phone conserving 3g connectivity.

Htc Incredible - Dinc System Crash

Driving with gps and announcement gps lost. After i arrive at destination, my phone appears to have crashed. Most applications come up with a force close message. Turned on and off. Removed battery. Removed and reloaded some apps, dolphin works after reload. Is there any thing beside reloading and/or doing a reset? Anyone else experience this problem. Not rooted. Running 2. 2. My phone book is nonexistent. Seems that htc original apps load without the force message.

Htc Incredible - Get Itunes To Recognize Dinc Just Like Ipod?

Does anyone know if there is a way to get itunes to recognize the dinc, just like a ipod? I know i can go through all of my mp3's and drag/drop but i have everything in itunes and it would be a lot easier to just do it from there.

I just got my 16gb sd in the mail today so i'm trying to figure out the best way to manage my music and movies with the dinc.

Open to any app/program suggestions or other tips.

Htc Incredible - Set Gmail Invites To Be Private By Default On Dinc

Is there a way to set gmail invites to be private by default? Google help says that if your calendar is set to private (mine is) then all invites will be private too. That is not the case though - when my husband receives an invite in outlook and he has to manually change it to private. So short of using my pc for all invites (where i can manually set them to private each time) is there a way to do this on the dinc?

Htc Droid Eris - Large Data Transfers - Most Data Is Only Like 400 Kb Or Less

We have an htc droid and we have unlimited data plans. But i was just looking over the data usage and noticed most data is only like 400 kb or less. Probably checking email and whatnot. But there are these random ones. That are like 3000 kb at around 5, 5:30, 5:50am and even like 2am, when i know for a fact we are all sleeping. And then also there were a couple over the past couple days for around 2500 and 3000 at odd times when i knew we weren't on our phone. What's weird is i know we looked at a couple youtube videos, which might make them that large, but the times it showed we used the 2500 and 3000 were way off of the times we viewed the youtube videos. I don't know if the timing could be off or something? But what would cause these random larger than normal data transfers at odd times? Is it updates? Or what? Anyone else seen this?

I know they aren't horribly large transfers. But large enough for me to wonder what would be causing it at odd times. And with the youtube videos could the time just be off? On our other phone t hey are all in sync. But that phone is an env touch. I know the droid is different. With lots of apps and updates and stuff. So i'm just looking for some clarification on this!

Htc Incredible - Possible Incredible Facebook Contact Solution

There are many topics on the subject but i couldn't find where this option was as many of us with an incredible know, the facebook integration is cool but annoying in that it throws every facebook friend with a listed phone number within your dialer screen and other key contact locations. So here's a possible solution if someone can help me. On my friend's motorola droid, his facebook app has an option that will only sync facebook contacts with known phone contacts. It's listed under menu>settings>other settings (the incredible shows only 'helpful hints' under this same menu item, although it's version number is higher). This is awesome in that it gets rid of the zillions of people you don't want showing up in your dialer.

So, can you replace the incredible's facebook app with the moto droid's? I have it downloaded but can't install it since i can't remove the stock facebook apps that came on the incredible. Is it possible to use the moto droid facebook app instead?I didn't have much time on his droid so if i'm mistaken on any point then so be it. Just hoping for options.

Htc - Data Not Storing To Sd

Previously, i kept getting messages that storage was low. So i purchased a new 4 gb sd card, and after inserting, started receiving the same notification again. It looks like nothing is going onto it, that its the phone's internal storage that is low? How do i specify that i want pictures, texts, etc to be stored on sd? As it is now, every couple of days i have to delete browser cache and all texts, and call log, so that i have enough memory to keep receiving texts and emails. Wth?

Htc - No Data Plan Questions

My family plan (familytime 1000 promotional on t-mobile) has been past it's 2 year agreement time for nearly six months now, and i'm thinking of upgrading my phone to a sleeker android device.

When i go to the "upgrade phone" page and select the mt3g/mt3g slide it states that i have to add a data package after i receive my phone, but i don't want that so can i just take the phone and never add the plan? I know people are saying "it's a smartphone, you need data, " but really really, i am under wifi 100% of the time.

An issue i've come a across is activating the phone and needing data. However, after seeing this video, it seems possible to bypass. So really, do i need a data plan with my device and need to add it when upgrading?

Htc Desire - Mobile Data Scheduler

Since updating to froyo, i notice that my phone seems to use trace amounts of mobile data constantly. Doesn't seem to make much difference to my data usage, but probably hurts the battery.

I don't want to turn this into a thread about froyo however.

What i am asking instead, is if there is some sort of app out there which can turn mobile data on and off according to a schedule.

My ideal situation would then be the following, (as and example):

Say i care about facebook and gmail, i would then set my facebook and gmail to sync once every 4 hours.

Using a mobile data scheduler app, i would set it so that my mobile data is turned off for 3hrs 58 mins, on for 2 mins, and then repeat.

Basically i only want my mobile data to turn on just for the time it takes to run a sync, and then turn off again. Is this possible?

Sprint Htc Hero - Always On Data Setting

Can anyone tell me what exactly turning off the "always-on data" setting does? Specifically, what functionality would i lose by disabling this? I already have peep set to download things manually, i have a mail account that checks my email every 30 minutes, and i don't even have the facebook app on my phone. But, will this affect the "people" app from downloading facebook updates, new contact pictures, etc?

Htc Desire - Twitter Not Connecting On Mobile Data

Using the last few versions of defrost rom and the latest radio (32. 47. 00. 32_5. 10. 05. 23) i seem to be unable to connect to twitter (thru either the official app or twicca) when on a mobile data connection (g or h). It works fine on wi-fi though. Not sure when this started as i'm usually within wi-fi range. All other apps and the browser work fine on both mobile and wi-fi. I've tried flashing to an older radio but no joy still.

Htc Evo 4g - 3g Data Connection Suddenly Drops / Solve This

I keep running into this issue. First of all, i live in a very good service area, so it's not lack of a strong signal that causes this. I'll be using the web browser and suddenly a page won't load and i look up to notice my 3g icon is gone! It usually takes turning off/on the phone to get it back. It's super annoying and i was wondering if anyone else ever experiences this and if so, is there anything that can be done to fix it?

Htc Magic - Can I Totally Block Off Data Usage Through Just Phone Itself

I have one question thats really been bugging me because i can't seem to find it any where over the internet. My question is, can i totally block off data usage through just the phone itself? Is there any possible solutions? I want this phone, but just to have the wifi capability, i do not want any expensive data charges. If this phone is not possible to do so, i know some are, but i do not know which. How about the htc touch diamond? Or any other phones you guys possibly know of that can disable the data function.

Htc Incredible - Htc Mail Memory Leak Solution

I slowly watched the memory usage for htc mail creeping up and up. I was up to over 80 megs, and the performance of my incredible was notably getting worse. I was looking and looking, and although i found a lot of other people having problems with htc mail, i never found a solution to it other than a hard reset.

So i deleted my hotmail account (left the gmail account alone). Instantly down to 15 megs. Reinstalled the account, reloaded my mail. Still only at 15 megs. So if you're getting the "low on memory" error, try removing all your email accounts except gmail, then re-adding them. Worked for me.
