Flipout, Froyo update and covers

2010-10-22, 7:24 AM

Hi there,

two questions about the Flipout:

  1. are there system updates available to Froyo or at least bugfixes? the phone keeps saying "update checking is currently not available. Try again later." Later when?
  2. Motorola shows nice colored covers to sell the phone, but there is no trace of them nor in off-line or on-line shops.

I bought my phone last September, how long should I wait?

Or should I desume that now that the Flipout is in my pocket, and my money in Motorola's pockets there is no interest to invest in this phone?

cheers,

-Gian

1. The message seems odd. It shouldn't say that it's not available but rather that the phone is up-to-date. We haven't added the FLIPOUT to our software upgrade news site but I've asked for it to be added. I'll also ask about updates(bug fixes).

2. You want covers other than what came with your phone? I'll have to see if my local counterparts can find anything out.

Mark,

thanks for your kind reply.

1. seems odd to me too, because I get the same message no matter if I'm offline, or online.

2. well, I liked the idea of having a colored Flipout, but I am disappointed to find out that colored covers are vaporware... I can understand if I can't find them in shops, but when Google cannot find'em, they DON'T EXIST! not a funny joke, Motorola.

Hi Gian,

1. Don't worry, as soon as there will be an update, you'll be able to connect to the server and download it.

2. Unfortunately, the covers are not for sale as an accessory, but as there are several retail packs for the Flipout with e.g. 3 or 5 covers, chances

are good, you'll be able to get some on e.g. Ebay.

In the UK rear covers are available from Clove Technology (www.clove.co.uk) who can supply internationally. The covers that I received were identical to the OEM Motorola covers in every way and were even in a pack of three colours. Hope this helps. I'm loving having a bright colourful cover.
