    band 4 for limited connectivity on verizon?

    No, I'm not really trying that hard to insist that there still might be a way to get your n5 to work on verizon. Just putting together ideas from various bits of news that came out in the past few weeks. It was "no nexus 5 on verizon, no way no how" all along because of no support for band 13...

    Close to pulling the purchase trigger, any last warnings?

    Some of you have likely had your device since launch now. I've somehow managed to delay myself, whether it was waiting for final Note 3 reviews to come out, waiting to see if the Nexus 5 was really going to get a reveal on the 15th (even though I don't expect it on Verizon and wouldn't really...

    Anyone concerned support/updates for G2 will be lacking?

    I'm facing a strange conundrum when it comes to wanting this device. As-is, if the mobile phone world froze in its tracks today and stayed there, I think I'd feel great buying the G2. Once in a while I still wonder if I'd rather have the HTC One, but the larger screen and battery of the G2...

    Soooo many complaints

    Geez I've really been turned off by the Android/Bionic community lately. So many complaints about ICS. After months of everyone acting like it was the biggest controversy in the history of the universe that we didn't have our update yet. Two news-flashes for you. 1) ICS didn't break anything on...

    Root Safestrap v3.04

    New Safestrap is available. I like it so far. Do not install it if you are currently on your safe side, go back to your stock rom and install it. Seems quicker so far and it's refreshing to finally use something other than CWM. Up to 4 ROM slots...

    Root CM10 / JB with data on boot

    Thanks to Hashcode. Last time I messed with a JB rom you had to toggle network settings for a half hour to try to get data to come up and no camera. As of today we have 4g data right on boot up and stock camera app doesn't connect but if you download Camera 360 Ultimate from the market, it...

    Would be great without the huge bezel

    For the most part I love my N7, but something has been bothering me. For being a 7" screen device, why does the device itself have to balloon up to a hair over 9"? Especially considering what it lacks. No 3g/4g components inside, no rear camera/flash, no front speaker/mic since it's not a phone...

    Labor Day deals or not?

    Forget the name of the website (J&R or something like that) but I just missed the 16gb being sold for $234. I was thinking I'd wait through the weekend to see if any sales are announced but then I thought this thing is still in demand and selling for above retail all over the place, is it...

    Bionic family - what do you think about Nexus 7

    Mods I hope this thread doesn't have to be moved or closed. While this is asking questions about a different product, I am trying to discuss it with fellow Bionic owners. I've got some Paypal funds sitting around and all of a sudden the Nexus 7 caught my eye the other day. I bought the...

    Root Overclock for those of us stuck at 1GHZ is HERE

    Finally there is a solution for us and it appears to be working as Quadrant Standard confirms my max speed is 1200mhz. Thread is here. Credit to everyone who created these things: [KERNEL][GSM/CDMA][ICS] Extra modules pack v0.1.3 (feat. overclock module) | Tweakerz - xda-developers...

    Extended battery - wish I had gotten it sooner!

    Finally bought one because they're $25 from Verzion. Right now at 21.5 hours with 60% left. I'll admit I was fairly light on using the phone today but still nice. My regular battery wasn't too terrible, it would usually be dying right around when I was ready to go to bed. Was plugging it in...

    Root Google Now is awesome

    I was getting a little bummed because I don't feel like doing the 235 or 238 ICS ROMs, the Jellybean ROMs were starting to sound tempting but I don't wanna go back to struggling to have a data connection, no working camera, etc, but the successful port of Google Now to ICS has given me something...

    Any external speaker recommendations?

    I've been in a few situations already where I wished I had a little external speaker to plug in. Even the volume through the lapdock is really low.

    Any camera apps that can do the full screen size pictures like the stock app?

    On the stock camera app when you choose the 6MP setting it takes pictures sized to fit the screen perfectly in landscape mode. I've come to really like taking pictures in this aspect ratio, it's nice scrolling through pictures on the phone and having them fit the screen perfectly. I've tried a...

    Root Messed up getting phone ready to sell

    So I dug my Ally out of the drawer and figured I'd get ready to throw it on eBay. I had a nandroid for stock 2.2.2 rooted so I flashed that. Then I thought, nah, I'll even undo the root, and get rid of Amonra and go back to the stock recovery. So I downloaded a Froyo unrooted zip and went into...

    Root Overclock help

    So I was trying to follow the method I found at Rootzwiki. The second I enter in the last command line in Terminal, my phone reboots. Am I doing something wrong, or is this just telling me that the internals of my specific Bionic do not like being overclocked? opptimizer - The OPPtimizer...

    Root Flashing 902?

    So someone made a copy of the update and made it available to others. I wanted to ask about how to do this because unlike just flashing a ROM, this can change the radio and other things, and I don't want to mess it up. I'm on 893 rooted with Eclipse ROM. Think I'd have to restore my stock ROM...

    Root lost haptic feedback

    I've been rooted and running eclipse for a few days now. Everything was fine. Then this evening haptic stopped. Four hardware buttons still make the phone buzz and the ringer will still vibrate. at this point I went into bootstrap and made a backup then wiped and restored it.no luck. Then I went...

    Any other 4G bonuses from VZW?

    I had downloaded my usual NHL game center app a few days ago until today on the market I noticed there was a version for Verizon 4g customers where you get some premium features for free. I also know there was some premium NFL app that came preloaded. I came across the NHL app by chance only so...

    Might be joining the club

    Nine tenths of the way towards deciding on a Bionic. I have an upgrade coming up and I started out thinking 4G didn't really matter to me and got interested in the DInc2, then it kinda occured to me that I might as well get grandfathered in on unlimited data with a 4G device. I was on an HTC...

    Almost upgrade time, couple ?s

    1) I'm currently getting the "you are qualified for an upgrade but if you wait until XX/XX date you will get an additional loyalty discount". My loyalty date is 1 week away. Any chance a Verizon store would bump up the date for me if I told them my current phone's battery is draining really...

    Might be upgrading out of Ally-world soon

    I'll probably be upgrading at the end of the month. Ally has served me well but the battery is getting tired and dying quicker than before and just general wear and tear. I'll have to see what the total device upgrade + loyalty discount will get me when it kicks in, probably won't have a lot of...

    VIP app for calls & texts?

    Does anyone know of an app for our Ally where you can select certain contacts that will ring even when your phone is on silent? I've done some looking through the Market and the two issues I've noticed are 1) most of these apps seem only to do this for calls and not texts and 2) varying success...

    Root Age of Zombies FCs immediately?

    Velocity 1.1 I was really looking forward to trying the new game from the creators of the addictive Fruit Ninja, but it force closes immediately upon launch. A Google search turned up a result where someone on another message board, also running V1.1, said they could not play the game. Can...
