Verizon confirms Droid Eris 2.1 update "coming soon" & will require a full wipe


Monday 10th of May 2010 / androinica.com
Verizon has recently listed the Droid Eris 2.1 update as coming soon, and with that little tidbit comes some good and bad. First and foremost, an estimated arrival time was not given. And with that out of the way, when the update arrives it will come as an over-the-air update. So far it sounds good, OTA and coming soon. But the catch here is that this update is being listed as mandatory. Ok, again, not bad but it has also been confirmed that the update will wipe all of the data you have on your phone. In short, you will have Android 2.1, but you will be starting over with your data and apps. In other words, make sure your data is backed up before you begin this update. That aside, if you are a Droid Eris user, here is what you can expect with the Android 2.1 update…EnhancementsPinch-to-zoom is now available when using the Gallery and Google Maps.New support for voice-to-text entry.Whenever a text-entry box appears, simply tap the microphone icon on the virtual keyboard and speak.New Gallery application with 3D layout. View and share photos taken with your phone and images from

DropBox Beta Now Available, Gives Users Opportunity to Earn an Additional 5GB of Storage


Friday 03rd of February 2012 / phandroid.com
The folks at DropBox have just announced a big beta release for their Android file sharing application. We’ve got some very interesting features here, the biggest of which is automatic uploading. Much like the feature on Google+, DropBox can automatically upload your photos and video to the service to ensure that your memories are backed up as soon as you capture them.They want to give users incentive to test this feature so they’re offering up to 5GB of storage for using the feature in your everyday life. Simply enable automatic uploading and you’ll get an additional 500MB of storage for the first photo uploaded.After that, you can get 500MB more storage after 500MB of photos or video are automatically uploaded, up to 5GB. People are always looking for new ways to get free storage so if you aren’t concerned about privacy give it a shot.To go along with all of that, they’ve raised the upload limit! Instead of being limited to 180MB at a time, you now have no limits whatsoever. Thanks to that it should be even easier to get that extra 5GB they’re of

screen dying - best way to save data?


Friday 17th of February 2012 / androidforums.com
Help! My wife and I both have Epic 4Gs. Mine still runs fine, butin the past 24 hours my wife's phone's screen has started to fail. It started with a loss of colot that made everything seem dim and red-tinted. And it's getting darker by the hour.So the main concern right now is how I can back up her most important data (pictures, contacts, calendar). Now, I know how to get the photos off the SD by just hooking up with the USB cable to the PC. But I don't know how I can get the contacts or calendar off there. Is there software I could use?Part of the problem is that with my phone, I put everything on the Google Contacts and Google Calendar and sync all day; while my wife uses the standalone android Calendar and Contacts on the phone. So some of her data only exists on the phone.Assuming it dies before we can download the data ourselves, can the Sprint store staff get the data off without being able to use the phone's screen?Any tips (other than, "Gee, you should have backed up periodically before") would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Photo backup queries


Sunday 14th of July 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
New Nexus 4 (make that new Android user full stop), and I was reading the blog post about photo storage in the cloud. It reminded me that a need a solution similar to that of the iPhone photo backup to iCloud I was used to until now. I may have misunderstood this, but it seems pictures backup to Google+ rather than any feature which would enable you to back them up to Google Drive. In my opinion, utter madness, though I suppose it's a desperate ploy to get people to use Google+. For me that's a terrifying notion, another social network where I have to ensure my privacy settings are locked up to the hilt (for a social network I have no interest in using and managing). Then, as I was playing around in the gallery settings on my Nexus 4 today I saw the 'Google Photo Sync is ON' setting. Another terrifying notion as I have no idea where my camera roll is actually being backed up to and whether or not it's private - horrifying for anyone with kids. When I click the photo sync option what I see is a tick box for 'auto-sync app data' which sounds like nothing to do with photos at all. So th

Autobackup stops after 1000 in gallery


Sunday 25th of August 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
So I noticed on my Samsung Galaxy S4 and my wife's Note 2 that autobackup in the gallery does not show any more then 1000 autobackup pictures. So basically after 1000 the autobackup ceases to work on the phones. Looking at google+ all my photos are being backed up. This is different then my Nexus 7 which shows 1140 but when you select the folder, the only thumbnails that show up are the newer 1000. The older 140 show up as blank boxes. Is anyone else noticing this and is there a workaround in getting this fixed? After searching the forum, this is the only post relating to this issue. Can anyone display more than 1000 images in their Auto Backup photo folder?
