2G question and also Battery

2010-12-30, 9:43 AM

Hi all,

I bought this phone for my girlfriend from the UK (Im in Portugal) and I have 2 questions:

- For battery saving porpuses we try to use 2G whenever we dont need to use fast data speeds. The issue with this option is that it looses signal significantly (from full to almost any). Is this a phone limitation or maybe this phone has an issue? (Im/shes using the central europe rom withought motoblur);

- The phone wont charge via USB after the 15% warning??

Apart from these "issues" she is pretty please with the phone, I must say.

Thanks and Regards!

Two more issue I forgot to mention.

If the battery runs out when we turn the phone on it wont ask for the pin and we are able to work with it as if we has put the pin. This also happens when he randomely reboots (not very often but it happened 3 or 4 times) .

randomely rebboting is the second issue...

Thanks!

When you say you are running the central EU rom without Motoblur - I assume this is not the ROM that came on the phone? I have not heard of any Flipout ROMs without Motoblur.

Are you running the Moto software that came on the phone? How are turning off 3G? What menu are you using to do this?

Re: 2G question and also Battery

Hi,

About the 2G I think I understand whats going on. Im running the rom from the link above RUTEM_U3_01.14.2 ad this only supports 900 / 2100 I tryed with the italy rom RUTEM_U3_00.28.11 and the 2G was good but since it has a limitation of the number of SMS you can save I rather loose the 2G functionality.

Is there a way of building this rom RUTEM_U3_01.14.2  with support for 850 / 1900 / 2100 ? That would be great!

After yesterday testing and rom installing the phone seems to be more stable now even if 2G not working...

I wish I could help you, but we can only support the Firmware that shipped on the phone.

You will have to look on other forums for help with other ROMs.

Just to resume this:

The issue with the 2G was because of the ROM that came with the phone (it was set for UK, it only supports 900/2100 frequencies); I believe this was also causing the random reboots.

Thanks!
