    G2 battery finally met it's Kryptonite

    Unplugged as normal in the morning, normal days worth of activity which for me is pretty average. After work used 1.5hrs of GPS. Decent drain, but not horrible. Then went to a concert. Phone is in pocket started getting warm. Turns out, in the building cell reception was spotty, and was on...

    Change default notification light

    I know you can customize the color of the notification LED per contact. That's pretty cool. But can you change the default notification color? In display settings, there is a area for notifications and it lists some options you can toggle on and off, but can you change the default colors...

    G2's screen is polarized

    I guess this is what you call it? Perhaps a side effect of the display tech. Noticed this the other day when wearing polarized sunglasses. Turned the phone horizontal and the display disappeared. Took sunglasses off and everything was fine. Happened to me with a outdoor rugged digital...

    Verizon G2 in hand

    Picked it up this morning from local corp store. Bought it at retail. Yes, I got the soft sell on Edge, but I think guy saw I knew my stuff and didn't go too far. One bonus, I mentioned the coupon code and got 10% off. I did pick up a pack of screen protectors. I like the flip cover...

    Help Can't make or receive phone calls....but have data access

    So overall I've been very happy with my launch day Gnex. No real issues to speak of. Verizon 4G has been good to me. But this afternoon, I made a call (checking voicemail), no problem. This evening, I went to make another call and I can't. It states dialing, but never connects. After...

    Help Browser unresponsive and hangs

    While using the stock browser, sometimes clicking a link or opening up a new tab will load ~75%, then lock up and become non-responsive. I have to wait a few seconds and then get the "This app has stopped responding. Wait/Close" dialog box. Clicking "Wait" everything returns to normal until...

    Material for Nexus back cover

    In case anyone was interested, the back cover was advertised as "hyper skin" or some other marketing buzzword. Its just Polycarbonate with 10% glass fiber reinforcement. Still, that plastic formulation is pretty durable and there shouldn't be any issues with durability.

    Funny thing happened at B&N

    At Barnes & Noble looking at cases for my Nook Color. At the Nook kiosk, there is an older couple being helped by another customer, since the actual B&N employee couldn't answer all the questions. She's an old lady, but very into books and her Nook Color. Probably like 60 or so, gray hair...

    Help Notifications while on call

    My wife complains to me about a problem with her Droid 2. When on a phone call and she gets a notification, it beeps through the headset speaker (not external speaker) until she silences it. Very annoying. My Droid X doesn't have this same issue, and to be quite honest, never spent the time...

    Consumer Reports on the Droid X

    Anyone see the Jan 2011 report on cell phones and providers? Stopped by a resturant for some takeout (yummm, crabcakes), and the owner had a bunch of mags on a table while I waited. I always take the reviews of consumer reports with a grain of salt. For instance, their car ratings are a...

    Help Manually forcing facebook sync

    Is there a way to force the sync for facebook contacts? In accounts, the only thing there is the user/password. I can't find anyway to manually force the sync. Is there also a way to clear out the cache, just in case the phone thinks it downloaded the info, but for whatever reason wants to...

    Help Screen freezing

    So my wife has had a Droid 2 for about 2 weeks. Let's just say, she's not the most patient person when it comes to learning new technology. The screen has frozen on her 4 times in that period. The first time I was able to witness. The phone itself doesn't seem frozen, just the screen input...
