Re: Moto Droid Tips and Tricks - Ask Questions Here

I've found so far that Open Home isn't playing very well with the clock and weather widgets. Both Beautiful Widgets and Weather Widget Donate both seem to make it want to force close often, even when it's just running in the background. Techguru, I switched back to GDE and got things set up like I want them and it's running well now. I guess I gave up on it too soon. I switched the transitions to normal because rotate is still a little choppy and fade causes graphical glitches from time to time, especially in landscape mode. It's now actually smoother than stock 2.0.

Odd that it says "GSM Service: In service" and "GPRS service: connected" right on top of "Network type: CDMA - EvDo rev. A" haha

Do the alternative home apps give you more than 3 home pages?

Yes. Some only do 4 screens while others do up to 7.

Severely missing the scroll wheel of my old Titan, i am now pleased as punch to learn that (while using the Dolphin Browser), the volume rocker can be used to scroll up and down !!!

Re: Moto Droid Tips and Tricks

It would be easier to do it from the computer and mount the SD card as a drive. You could also use ASTRO or OI File Manager to make the folders.

Re: Moto Droid Tips and Tricks - Ask Questions Here

ask questions.....ok.

I put my photos on the SD card.......when I go to the gallery it shows me 2 folders with the same pictures. One has a plain file folder in the bottom right corner of the icon and the other has a file fiolder with a circle on it. Anyone know what this is all about?

Also....##PROGRAM is ##7764726 and when I try to dial it it asks for an SPC password.
the other one is *#*#4636#*#*.....that one works.
