New user with some basic questions
Hopefully someone can assist. Being the proud owner of an X10 I have a few issues to resolve:
1. Battery life. As suggested on this site I have installed Juice Defender and Advanced Task Killer. However I'll be honest, I don't know how to use them, they seem to have numerous options. What I want to achieve is maximise the battery life and use the phone for calls / text / internet as and when I want. I'm not bothered about stuff running in the background or the phone checking my e-mail every 10 mins for me etc etc!! Can anybody suggest if Juice Defender and Task Killer are the right things to have installed, should I have one and not the other, and how do I set them up?
(Yesterday I made / received 5 short phone calls and 2 texts and spent about 10min on the net. Battery went from fully charged to 10% in 18 hours)
2. Regularly when I try to connect to the internet or check e-mails I get a message saying "Unable to connect to the network" or "Error loading messages - retry?" This is despite having a good signal and being able to send / receive texts and phone calls no problem.
3. What do the following icons mean? On the home page there is a row of four icons. I know one is bluetooth and another is ringtone off / vibrate, but what are the other two that look like radar dishes ?
4. Occasionally a tiny radar dish icon appears at the top of the screen next to the 3G icon and signal strength bars - what does this mean??
I think this is a great phone but I need to know what I'm doing to use it to its full potential. Thanks for any assistance.
