I grabbed mine at the Bradenton Sprint store yesterday and have been doing a lot of set up and transferring (God bless Appbrain!) apps. After a full night's charge and using HotSpot for an hour this morning while I was getting my car serviced, BlueTooth and a couple of calls I was still at 94% - I'll take that over my EVO!!

I had some issues transferring my old 16gb SD card - it kept freezing up on me. So, I deleted the stuff there and copied over the stuff on the stock 2gb card. It works great now!!

Ok, had this bad boy for a few days already and I'm extremely happy with it. NOW i have a few question for those who are in the know of this device or the Pro version. one of the stock icons i have here is a task manager is that the same as a task killer? and if not should i get a task killer or a different version of it? also in the home screen i have 5 pages but 3 pages are showing. a systems page where it shows wifi connect gps and airplane mode, and the other screen shows messages and calender. my question is i have 2 addition pages that are empty can i remove those pages or can i move those icons so i have less home pages to flip over?

I don't think you need a task killer with this phone - the battery has been EXPERIENTIALLY better than my EVO! Give it some time and see. As for moving the icons... oh, yes - move them to whichever screen works best for you. I've moved almost all of mine so that those that I use most frequently are on the screens closest to my home screen. Explore and you can even just ADD them - I think they are Motorola widgets, not Android. Have fun!

You got me on that one! I've got ONE contact that has disappeared from my phone - sort of: all of his info went into another similar name! I had to delete him rename him to get him back into the phone. I thought that weird, too! Good luck!

Default Great phone!

This phone is truly a blackberry killer and with an unlimited Sprint plan it's a win win situation for me. I was carrying both an HTC Hero and a BB Bold for work. Now I only need to carry one phone. The battery has been exceptional. The keyboard is really practical and easy to use. The phone is snappy for only having a single core. It's been my best experience on Android for the needs I have (massive texting, gmail, ms exchange, IM, web) and occasional youtube and pandora, google maps, navigation. I was considering leaving Sprint for Verizon and getting this guy and I almost settled for a Samsung Replenish(Good God!). 3G/CDMA Signal strength is definitely superior to my Hero and Bold, as well as call quality. The only draw back so far is Motoblur, but it's proven to be less obtrusive than I thought. So far I'm very satisfied. I picked this up on its release day. I'm looking forward to my next trip overseas with this phone. I wonder if the SIM is unlocked for use with local SIM cards...

i know i have asked this question before, the XPRT comes with a task manager, in it it has a auto end feature. my question is has any one used or played with the task manager, i have heard of task killers so i am assuming its the same thing. is it worth just using the stock version how do u guys have it set up i have everything selected to the auto end feature, but im not sure if it works. should i still get a task killer/manager from the market anyways? would it be better to get one from the market if so anyone have suggestions which one? i appreciate it..

From my readings you don't need a task killer. I think its more of a preference. Yes I believe its the same thing task killer and task manager. I had the optimus s before the xprt and did not nor need a task killer/manager. I think I am gonna leave it be and see how it goes. Hope that helps... Maybe a more experienced android user can help you.

I use the auto end feature, and it works great! It just turns those selected apps off after 2 minutes of idle time. My battery has been lasting all day.

Jesse, I had a BB Curve prior to this XPRT, and I'm lovin it. Call quality is great. The physical keyboard is very BB-ish. It seems to be louder, and many more options available.
I'm still getting use to the OS, but I'm learning. I just learned how to text multiple contacts!

Hi Jeese,
The overall feel of the phone is very good. The screen is 3.1 (close to an HTC Hero). I think its enough for most tasks but if you are used to 4.3 or 4 it may be a problem. The camera is so so. Picture quality could be better but its not terrible. Camcorder was very mediocre. However, I don't use this features often except for random shots to upload maybe to FB or twitter every now and then. There is an LED for notifications but it only works if the screen is asleep

Thanks for your quick replies, I am seriously considering this phone. I currently have the Nexus on Sprint but this phone has major signal issues and the XRPT looks to be different from ALL other Android phones. I am ready for a change. Do any of you know if it had gorilla glass?

I came from the EVO - ain't upset about it, either! I miss the larger screen a little, but I am more enthralled with the keyboard and functionality. The Motorola build is very solid, and their "Motoblur" works very nicely. What you don't want you can get rid of and off the screen. Yes, if you don't spend hours a day playing games or watching movies you will not miss the EVO that much. And, if you are as tired of having to plug your EVO in to keep the battery in the green mid-day then you will really enjoy the XPRT - I go ALL DAY without a charge and use my phone a fair amount - as a phone and for email/text messaging. Yes, sir, it is head & shoulders over the BB, and serves you well compared to the EVO.

Has anyone experience the phone getting warm when talking? It doesn't get hot to the touch but it does warm up.

I have, indeed, noticed it - apparently at the top of the phone is my recollection. But, it hasn't necessarily been when talking, but when doing other tasks, too, such as email or texting messages. I'll pay closer attention in the days ahead while I'm traveling to Vegas.

it doesn't do it much for me when texting mostly when talking, it warms up and stays warm but doesnt get hotter as time goes by its weird. it also did it when i was using Google maps for a few minutes, again warmed up but stayed at that temp, again not hot to the touch but you definitely it getting slightly warmer.

So I went to Sprint over the weekend and played with the phone.... I LOVED it! I was really hoping that i woulndt, but I did! Now I am in a hard spot! I like my Nexus, but I also like the Moto! I will wait until i find one on Craigslist so I can get it cheaper..maybe by then the Nexus will get its signal issues resolved.

BTW the only draw back on the XPRT is the camera..its one the lamest 5 megapixels I have seen! But then again this is not a media device, but still...in no way is that even close to a real 5mp camera.

Other than that I like it!

i agree on the camera for the most part, it takes decent pics but for 5 mp it should be better. but then i took pics in a natural scene like birds in a forest. the pictures came out really good and clear and colors were beautiful so i guess it depends on the scenery. but the video cam is not bad at all good colors and clear

ok clearing up the warming debate i had. the warming i feel is not from the back of phone i noticed when talking it was coming from the screen so i guess that's normal. and when using Google maps it must have been running a program or an app was running in the background because it was slightly lagging when it got warm. today i used it again it didn't get warm and it was flying. i guess that's normal too, lol.

its a 1ghz cpu so there will be some heat released. I have experienced the same warm up feeling when talking. I'm trying to get a wired earpiece soon just in case all the radiation fuzz about cellphones is real.

Well I Officailly have my Nexus S up for sale... this morning it kept losing data connection, and that was my last straw! Now I went to Amazon and they have the XPRT for $399, not bad, it will be an even swap for me!

By the way do any of you have Amazon Cloud Player or use Pandora? How's the connection when playing any of these 2?

On my NS4G it takes Pandora about 1 minute literally (or longer) to go to the next Song!!

update; do not buy any skins or cases that snap on or holsters for the XPRT. there is nothing out there available and what ever they have for the Droid pro on Verizon wont work. I tried with a body glove case and now i tried with screen protectors. too small, luckily i bought the cheesy cheap ones, the screen on the XPRT although same size the keyboard is slightly different which makes the screen slightly bigger.

Hi Jesse,
I used Amazon Cloud Player often. The 3G connection is really good. I think signal strength is definitely a plus for this phone. I live in an urban area so my coverage is always very reliable. I cannot speak for suburban areas. I ditched Pandora because of the advertisements were so annoying and repetitive. BTW, Amazon CP caches your music to use it when you don't get signal(I experience this when using the subway).

I forgot to mention that Amazon will trade in your NS4G and will send you a gift card that you can use to buy another phone from them. 399 is the exact same price at Sprint. I bought it at my local Sprint store at full price because it is a good investment given the GSM radio.

HUh... interesting on the Amazon buy back thing , let me check it out ( not good $110 for an Evo! And $185 for my Nexus..oh heck no LOL), and thanks for your feedback regarding the Amazon player,

it should do it automatically. to verify this go turn your NS4G in airplane mode and open amazon cloud player and play a song you have played recently while on 3G/Wifi. Make sure you have the latest and greatest ACP version

Great question...i also wondered the same. I want to see what kind of homescreens everyone is working with. I feel like mine is just missing a bit more inspiration to it. THE SEVEN SCREENS IS SO MUCH MORE THAN REALIZED! lol...

I'd start a post your homescreen thread, but I need to get a good one so i can post mine first (as should be the ritual). ALSO, is there a screen capture shortcut?? Like hold 2 buttons down or something? Android seems to be lacking this...

Has anyone had any lock ups on there xprt? I had the phone for 2 weeks and I had experienced 2 lock ups. 1 while playing a game and other when receiving a text. The phone didn't reboot it just froze nothing worked, not even powering it down. I had to remove the battery to get it back. Maybe I shoudnt complain coming from a BB which I did constant battery pulls

I use the "Ripoff" case that is made for iphone. I have used "ripoff" with my last three phones and love them. They have a really great belt clip and have never dropped a phone. It was too tight a fit for having the silicon sleeve on too however.

Menu>Sound>Vibrate. Select Always, Never, Only in Silent, Only when not Silent.

I'll try to nail a bunch of questions in one post:

1. Never use a task killer. You will eat your battery much more monitoring the usage with killer than this task manager. Task manager alerts you when your RAM usage is a bit high and you can auto-end apps that would normally use a lot of RAM if allowed to run in the background, thus eating battery. I put a bunch of apps on auto-end but I'm skeptical as to whether it's working. What you need is Watchdog. It will tell you what apps are using too much CPU, which will truly slow down your phone. There is a free Lite version in the Market.

2. Always use LauncherPro. The end.

3. I've yet to meet an Android phone that doesn't warm up to some capacity when being used for more than 10 mins in whatever form or fashion you are using it. If you're worried, you can download an internal temp gauge that will tell you what the battery's temp is. But what good will that do since you don't want to do anything to cool it down besides not use the phone for a minute.

4. Download a freeware called Audio Profile Manager. You can only load 3 profiles in the free version, but I have mine set to a sleep setting where it only rings at night, no notifications. The difference with Audio Profile is you can tell it to SPECIFICALLY vibrate for texts ONLY. I'm sure there's other ones like it. You can also set one to do all vibrate, but why would you do that when there should be a toggle widget that allows you to set it to vibrate only. If not, hit the sleep button on top, hit it again, slide the arrow on the right to the left and you're in vibrate.

5. I am a previous BB user. I loved my BB. But Android was so much more appealing. And now that this phone is out, BB has a run for their money.

6. If you want a good camera on a cell phone, go buy a camera, not a phone. But this one does fine for those not in photography classes or professional shooting.

7. No one asked about this, but ROOT THIS PHONE! There are instructions at the top about doing so. Why??? You can get rid of Sprint's crappy bloatware that is killing some of your RAM/battery/CPU. Also, you can have a free WiFi Tether, which I personally don't care about. And rooting won't cause you to lose anything you currently have. You can just delete the junk. Even if that's all you do, do it.


Bottom line, after coming from the Samsung Transform, this is a FANTASTIC phone. I've had a few issues where it will lock up and reboot itself, but I'm finding that I don't care because it reboots in under 30 seconds. And I'm rarely doing anything important when it does. Now that I've rooted, hopefully I will have less of those issues.

The end. Have a happy day/2 years now that you own this phone.

The Motorola XPRT is Sprint's first Android phone to focus on business consumers, particularly reformed BlackBerry usres. One quick look at the XPRT and you may do a doubletake - wait, what? Is that a BlackBerry Android Phone? No... it's no... Read More
