Motorola Backflip/motoblur - Cannot Download Image Sent Via Text / Get It To Work


I did a bit of searching and didn't see much on the topic other than a similar issue where a video could not be downloaded. I apologize if i missed a thread with a solution.

Has anyone seen an issue when you receive an image via text, a download button appears and it changes to "downloading" but never seems to complete? If i scroll up a little and back down, that message goes away and the button is back. Also, no notification shows in the status bar to indicate that any kind of download is taking place or anything, either. I've looked around the sd card and picture gallery and do not see that it saved anywhere.

Anyone else have this issue before? Is it something that might be corrected in the coming update?

This is far from a major upset for me, but it is a little frustrating. I suppose i could try a separate app, but i'd rather not.

Motorola /motoblur - Backflip : Send More Than One Picture In An Mms Through Text

Is there anyway to send more than one picture through text? I know with my old phone that was 3mp i was able to send like 6 pictures at one time via mms compared to the backkflip where i can only send one pic at a time and sometimes it takes too long. Is there a way to create a slide show with more than one pic? Is there an app anyone can recommend for sending more than one picture? Please help, this is driving me crazy.

Motorola Backflip/motoblur - Backflip Won't Send Sms / What To Do

I ordered a moto backflip off ebay which arrived yesterday, it is a beautiful phone. I am in south african on virgin mobile sa. The problem is that my phone comes from singapore, has all singtel apps on it. I cannot use the phones default browser but opera works fine.

I can make and receive calls, browse the web, receive sms, but not send them. I don't know why this isn't working. I cannot get virgin sa to help me because they do not support the backflip. I feel that if i can get everything else working i must surely be able to get the phone to send sms.

I'm currently using chompsms, which works if i send a sms through the chomp network. This however is very expensive and rather silly because virgin sa contracts come with free unlimited sms.

I'm sure it has to do with putting the correct sms center number in, but i cannot find where to do this.

Motorola Backflip/motoblur - No Im App On Backflip / Sms / Software Update

So just recently i got the motorola backflip on telus in canada and i love everything about it. But one thing i noticed was that, there is no instant messaging app on mine. It wasn't blocked or anything just missing. This is puzzling me as i like to im a lot.

My second question is. Is there a way to send im's via sms? What i mean is that sending instant messages using text services so you don't eat up data. Because of my phones lack of an im app, it costs me 4mb just to open the app, and then 1mb in sending. So every day i would be using up like 20mb in data if i am not on wi-fi. I have unlimited incoming and outgoing text messages so if i can send im over sms it wouldn't use my data and i won't have to worry about how much data i am using because my plan has only 500mb of data. Add this up with all other data services and i am using a lot of data.

And my third and final question is about upgrading to android 2. 1. I have been reading about software updates and that att backflip phones are preparing for 2. 1 software update in q3 2010. I read on the moto software update page that a canadian 2. 1 upgrade is still under evaluation. Does anyone know a general time period in which telus and/or motorola will have this ready to go? Does android 2. 1 have flash (lite or 10. 1)? And will the backflip eventually be compatible with android 2. 2?

Motorola Backflip/motoblur - Clarification About Q3 Update

Has there been any confirmation as to whether the android 2. 1 update will be with or without motobloat?I know this isn't very constructive, but i have to say that this phone is one of the bigger dissappointments i've experienced with a "smart" phone, and i've had practically every phone at&t has ever offered. I honestly can't determine whether it's just android that is soooo bad, or if it's this junky motoblur skin "feature", or perhaps at&t just being at&t and making motorola look really bad. Ppl loving this phone either just don't have exerience with a clean running smart phone, or they are just so enamored with google that they can't smell the stink they are standing in. You can flame me all ya want - nothing angers worse than the truth.

I don't plan on continuing to use this phone - already switched back to an iphone. I'm just trying to decide whether i hold onto it and give it another try when it's running a bit more recent operating system (hopefully without the bloat), or send it on back to at&t and look for an unlocked non-motoblur/at&t android to evaluate.

Motorola /motoblur - Alarm Clock Did Not Go Off At All In Backflip / Fix It

I am having problems with the stock alarm clock in the backflip. Anyone else having bugs? Today it did not go off at all. Other times it was 10 to 15 minutes late or the volume did not increase as it is set to. One other time i could not turn off the alarm so had to reboot phone.

Does motorola pay attention to these forums and eventually fix these problems?

Motorola Backflip/motoblur - No Sound For In-coming - Out-going Calls / What To Do

Symptoms - no sound for incoming or outgoing calls the volume button says "bluetooth in-call volume". However bluetooth is not connected to any devices. Turning off the bluetooth by holding the power button does not help. The volume button still says "bluetooth in-call volume". Powering off the phone and then powering it back on fixes the problem temporarily. Motorola support suggested to reset the battery. The problem continued. Then asked to wipe the phone back to default and start from scratch. I have done a wipe of the device and re-installed all the applications and settings to no avail. The problem persists with the phone. I noticed that it happens right after i unplug the headset jack from motoflip in my car. I do have a bluetooth connection in my car for phone calls and also use my multi-media wire to listen to audio (don't have a2dp. ) Perhaps, it only happens when the headset is used for multi-media while the bluetooth is connected. When wire is unplugged, all sound is funneled to the bluetooth somehow and the device sound is stuck on bluetooth. Hence there is no sound for "in" or "out" going calls on the phone itself. This is a major problem for me. I get several missed calls a day because of this issue and i have to reboot the phone everytime it happens.

Motorola Backflip/motoblur - Applications Missing After Repair ?

I recently had to turn my phone in to get the screen repaired. When i got the phone back and went through all the initial options again to set up the phone (which i thought was wierd, i thought it would have saved that information somewhere), none of my applications i had on my phone are anywhere to be found. I do know that i completely forgot to unmount the sd card before removing it, could that be the cause? Is there any change of salvaging any of the applications from the card, and if so, how?
