DROID X 2.2 issues

Member

Here is the problems that I faced so far.

 

1-      No option to silent the phone.

2-      No option to disable the screen slide lock.

3-      Screen is very sensitive, especially with the application drawer. It will automatically select any app once you start scrolling.

4-      It’s very hard to delete apps or widget from the 7 home screens unless you resize them.

5-      Text messaging not in order.

6-      Slower internet.

7-      Slower android market.

 

I think 2.1 sounds like an upgrade if I can have it back.

I performed my update yesterday and so far the only issue I have found is when in landscape while texting the screen doesn't display all the characters.. I am still working through the remaining applications and will post more after I get through everything else.  Is anyone else have the same issue when in landscape orientation?

The only thing I have really noticed is that a couple apps were no longer there after the upgrade.  I have only had my phone a couple of days, but one of the apps I noticed was the bar scanner.  After the upgrade it was missing.  I was able to download it from the apps store for no charge, but I didn't really understand why it would delete the app in the first place.

1. click settings then sound and click silent mode.

2. looks like your right on that one. lol

3.my screen seems fine and it never launches an app unless i press it firmly.

4. deleting things off your home screens is as simple as holding your finger on the shortcut or widget until it highlights and then just slide it to the basket.

5. texts are in the order that they are received.

6. no slowdown on my end.

7. the market seems like it always has.

The update is rubbish, I went to verizon store yesterday and the droid x they had in display was still running on 2.1. I compared mine which is running  2.2 and it was way slower than the 2.1 at the store. And I mean slower in every aspect. 

PS. 

some how I have this feeling that all the people that have something good to say about that update, they might be verizon agents with customer accounts just to cover that rubbish update.

Everyone don't forget that verizon pushed this update at the last minute by the last day of the summer to avoid lawsuits on false advertisement. I know the update will be bad but I didn`'t expect it to be that ridiculous.

And for the 5th point about the text messages, could you explain how all of us have the same issue?

Concerned (really??), I think it takes an incredible amount of unmitigated GALL to come in here and call people like me out and out LIARS. And that is exactly what you are doing when you spout off that people like me are working for Verizon. Don't you DARE tell me that I'm wrong and I'm a Verizon shill when I talk about the cool things now going on with my phone because of the update. Besides, who's right, you or me? Since your post already alludes to your opinion, what qualifies you to say so? What makes you right and me wrong? The truth, whether it suits your agenda or not, is that aside from a bluetooth headset issue that seems to have cleared itself up and a speed dial thing (can't set a speed dial number past 2, anyone seen this or know about it), my X is indeed a better phone because of the update. The battery life, amazingly, has improved, although the real battery test will be at our shop today where the signal strength is fair to midland and our shop is a metal building (Where Verizon, with a tower 4 miles away, works better than the AT&T tower that is 1 1/2 mile away). The phone rings louder, which was my only complaint in the first place. It seems to be "snappier". And I could on and on, but unfortunately,  I've run out of give-a-d**m. 

 

There's a lot of people that genuinely want to help folks who are having problems with their phones. No  one expected the update to go smoothly for 100% of the X owners (and trust me, we have fared WAY better than the Incredible owners) and lots of people are eager to try and help folks with problems and I happen to be one of them. The very first thing people should do after an update is to perform a hard reset on their phones. I know that this isn't an official directive from Moto or Verizon,  but it just makes sense from an update perspective. You are starting over fresh. I think this bears because a lot (but not all, mind you) of Incredible owners have solved their update problems by doing the hard reset. It's a good place to start. And if I cared, I'd suggest, as an approach to the out-of-order text message issues, to try using Handscent, if you haven't already.  Will it help? I have no idea. 

 

That's all I'm going to offer at the moment. Past that, with an attitude like yours, you are on your own, as far as I'm concerned. From the looks of  things, you need to go to Ebay and find an old Razr and avoid the entire smartphone revolution altogether.

 

I love how folks with your point of view love to brag about "computer engineering"  "web development' or whatever your supposed field of expertise is in. We aren't discussing brain surgery or developing IT systems for the government. We are talking about phones. Your superior intellect insulting response isn't serving you so well when you approach people that don't know you from Adam's housecat. Trust, I realize that you didn't come in here looking for help, but again, I'm not going to silently listen to your assertions about folks like me that aren't having problems

 

Otherwise, good luck with your issues

 

Respectfully, for some reason that I can't think of at the moment,

Geri,

I wasn't calling you a liar, I put all the basic problems that I noticed and I mean "basic". For you to come and say no those problem does not exist, it means that am a liar. Second of all what are you try to accomplish here, some of us trying to get their phone fixed or getting a new update that works for everyone. But people like you that they are just saying nothing is wrong with the update and we need to reset it or do a factory reset, you are holding us back. 

Do you honestly think when you tell me I need to reset my phone, its like a big news for me. Do you think I didn't do that several times before even writing anything. Some of us we have a life and have respectful jobs, so am sorry if I cannot reset my phone 4 times a day or do a security wipe everyday to fix my phone problem. And my intention here is to get help other than "LOL", "reset", "take the battery out" , etc.............. all of us know how to do that.

First, I NEVER said the problems don't exist, read my reply again.

 

And I have no idea what you need or don't need to do with regard to your phone. 

 

I never asserted that you or anyone didn't have problems. And I didn't, as someone else 100% jokingly implied, that you work for Apple or AT&T or Sprint and are presenting problems that don't exist.

 

Did I?

I'm done, all yours. And sincerely, good luck
