Re: HTC Raider

Ok the issue with returning it is my usage says 113 weekend and 36 weekday. There us no way I've used that since last Thursday since I was in Seattle til Monday and didn't talk at all until this Tuesday. Is there a way for them to see my usage since last Thursday?

The back also got some scuff wear on the metal plate from sliding and a small ding on the plastic bezel before I got a cover for it, but I can't see that being an issue since I can just keep the same phone from processing a return and signing a new agreement with the same device.

Re: HTC Raider

I would call Rogers and ask for an itemized list of numbers called and for how long.  If there is no way you could have made the calls you may be a victim of fraud.  Don't take no for an answer, expect to be transfered several times and you will have to set aside at least an hour or more for a resolution.  They should be able to tell where you were and to whom you called.  Let them know why you are interested (cheaper phone) as they can give up to a fifty dollar goodwill credit on your account.  Hope that helps.

Re: HTC Raider

I think what us showing is more than the last 10 days, as I looked at my call history and it was 20 min.

The store I got it from cancelled the previous one for 99 and processed a new one for 25 effective today.

Now I just have to ask a CSR why I don't see either charges on my card yet.

Re: HTC Raider [Calendar / Maps, driving directions]

Quick question(s), kinda general and not necessarily related directly to the Raider.

 

Calendar

When I add a new calendar entry on my phone, what settings must I have in order for this to AUTOMATICALLY try and sync to the google calendar right away?

-Under Accounts & Sync, I have Background Data box CHECKED; Auto-Sync is UNCHECKED because it freezes up the sync when it's checked, and once I forgot to disable the mobile data and left the phone in my bag, dropbox ran up the mobile data usage 100MB.

-Right now, I have to manually "sync" the calendar to make sure that it will push it to google calendar from my phone, otherwise I have no idea when it decides to syn on it's own.


Maps / Navigation: Very confusing...

1.When I open a contact and click on their address, it opens "Locations". When I click the car icon, it gives me a popup saying "you need the following navigation license to accomplish this trip" - CANADA [with options, Buy, voucher, Syn licence, cancel]
-Anyone know if this is a free license or not?  I do have to say that the map here looks awesome in 3D and it's nice to have offline maps; apparently this is Tom Tom's partnership with HTC.

 

2.If I open a calendar entry (using native calendar app) and click on the address, same thing; goes to Locations and then from there the same story with the license, etc, etc..

 

3.If I open a calendar entry in Business Calendar free version (awesome calendar app if you ask me), it gives you a choice on what app to open it with (Maps, Waze); then from there I can select Navigate (blue triangle) which is free.

 

** Help, can someone tell me if I can change the default behaviour so that it opens up Navigation instead of Locations??


Latest google map upgrade killed my Navigation (blue triangle icon).

-Before, I could start navigate with data on (wifi or mobile), after it calculated the route, I would turn data off and it worked fine. With the latest updated to google maps, this NO LONGER works; when I turn off mobile data it gives me "data connection lost" and a black screen, no more routing etc.

 

** Help!! How do i uninstall the last update to google maps?

 

Thanks y'all!

"** Help, can someone tell me if I can change the default behaviour so that it opens up Navigation instead of Locations??"

 

 

Found this app that will do it: "Select Other Map for HTC". once you install this it wil give you a choice of what to open... it's perfect!!

 

Just thought I'd share..

 

 

Yes, I've gone and done it, I bought a Atrix 4G off Ebay... will check it out, if I like it I will be getting rid of the Raider... too bad so sad. I like the HTC but it's not pocket friendly. Also the Atrix has a separate HDMI out port, AND a dock! 🙂
