Fuze Issues?
Edited by mzshortay on Nov 11, 2008 at 8:03:04 PM
I picked up my Fuze today, right after work, and not to be too surprised that not many people had gotten this phone. It's funny how the employees were all "ohh" about it wishing they had waited instead of buying the other phones. Anywho...
 
  1. I thought it was possible to change the background on the Fuze by default [w/o installing any cab files, etc.]?
  2. Also, when I tried to change things on my today screen, such as putting the device lock on the today screen, it never shows up. When I go back into the settings, the box is unchecked, repeatedly. I can not get this to work.
  3. And I thought when the stylus was pulled out, it was supposed to wake up my device? Is there any settings for this, or what?
  4. Lastly, I know most people don't care, but when I went into the AT&T tab, and selected the Games & Apps folder, it was empty. Is this the same for everyone?
 
Can my phone be defective? I think this phone is nice, certainly something that I'd have to get used to, but I'm questioning if I rather keep my tilt or not. Help!

You can set the wallpaper using the "Settings" tab in TF3D, but that only affects the "Home" screen.  Anything more than that requires changing the theme, which requires a program that isn't installed on the device but can be found on the xda-developers site (and, no doubt, elsewhere).

1. The "Today" settings apply to the native Windows Mobile setup.  If you are using TF3D, it replaces the WM "Today" screen with the tabs you see.

2. Pulling out the stylus wakes up the phone for me.  Did you pull it all the way out?  There's a little switch just inside the mouth of the silo that senses whether the stylus is there or not -- pushing the stylus in depresses that switch.  Yours may have gotten stuck down.  Somebody mentioned freeing it up with a toothpick, or you may want to exchange your unit for another if the switch is defective.

3. I have no idea what might be going wrong with that -- I have more than a screen full of stuff when I select that button on the AT&T tab.

You don't need to upgrade to .net compact 3.5, the 3.5 is the latest release of .net frame compact which is already cooked into AT&T's WM6.1 Rom.  You only have to install the schap's advanced configuration tool on your devices main memory (not your memory card).  The main tweeks you are looking to change are the tweeks under the performance tab, mainly the file system cache.  I have mine set on 4mb the higher you set this setting the faster your fuze will run.  I have provided a screen shot of my device showing the performance specs I have set for mine and it runs FAST!!

When you get a new device, it is suggested that you might want to do a thorough search of the device first.

Start > Programs > Messaging > Get Blackberry Connect.

You might want to try that and see what you get, before you return the device.

I tried this yesterday and got the coming soon message.  It does launch opera and directs you to htc's site.

Fuze issues.

Phone sync's with the work laptop (XP & Activesync 4.5).  However, it will not sync with the desktop at home (Vista Business).  Any guesses?
Also, neither Google Maps, nor Live Search are able to access the GPS.  Is there something that needs to be enabled prior to it working?

Actually, according to a post linked on www.fuzemobility.com, it indicates that WM 6.1 does not have .NET Compact 3.5 installed.  It also tells you the file you can look at to see if it does. ( mine did not) So, in order to use some of the newer apps, you will need to install 3.5.

Here is my experience, I was certainly frustrated until I got it to work.  However, I'm not sure of the exact steps to make it work here, but I do try to recreate the steps I took:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=2899803&postcount=119

Some have tried this and it works, and some have tried and it's still not working.

If you can nail it down, let us know!  ( had 8-10 satellites on my drive after work today on GM and it worked GREAT!)

To follow-up on the issues I previously posted about...
 
 
I went back to the AT&T store today where I purchased my phone. Funny thing is, I guess I had a new employee helping me cause he barely even understood what I was talking about and I think he never even used a windows mobile phone before. Also, when I spoke to another guy, I asked if they were trained on these phones. Funny...he said they normally are but they JUST got these phones in, as of yesterday, so it's tottally new to them, but many of the employees like what they see. I was also told, there isn't even a tutorial available for them yet. Basically, if you go to a store for help, it's not guarenteed.
 
 
As for the issues I had, most of them were corrected when I was given a new phone. I guess the software was messed up on the phone, for the whole AT&T apps folder was empty! My new phone is working great. I'm considering keeping it now. I just only wish that the TouchFlo today screen was customizable. Why would I want the calendar right there, when it's already set at the bottom tab? Such a mistake AT&T!!Smiley Indifferent

I just purchased the new AT&T Fuze, but I am having a problem with the Music application in TouchFlo 3D. I am wondering why it won't display the album art for some of my albums? I have about 3GB of WMA files that I synced (using Windows Vista/Windows Media Player 11). On my Fuze, ALL of the album art shows up when I play music using Media Player Mobile. However, when I play music through TouchFlo 3D (which I would prefer to do), the artwork does NOT show up for most of the albums; only a small portion. Does anyone know why this is? And how I can fix it?

Update to my post.  Still no GPS despite fiddling with the options under external GPS & in Google Maps.  Seems to be mixed  views, some successful on com0, some on com4.  Neither working for me yet.  I will try Quick GPS later.

As for the syn issues.  I was able to fix the issue with connecting to Vista Business.  Settings > Connections > USB to PC.  I unchecked the box for Enable advanced network functionality.  worked with no problems after that.  I hope I don't have an issue with the work laptop tomorrow morning.

So, I would rather not have to deal with this, but it looks like I will. Antiprodigy, did your device come with 3.5 out of the box?

My Fuze did not come with .NET Compact 3.5.  I followed the directions as indicated in that post to install 3.5.  It's not difficult, and in the end you will either have to do it to access some of the more recent software, or wait till AT&T/HTC do another Rom.  And we know how long that will probably be.  Want to start a betting pool on that one? I'll take 8 months.

I think what lee1199 mentioned about AT&T not even provisioning this handset for the network is 100% valid.. Is there any way that we can find out if this is the case?

did it, got NET Compact Frame 3.5 installed.  You were right, the directions were clear and easy to follow.  Was then able to install and run the Advanced Config program

Thanks, I promised you I tried to do it and it would not let me. I was on with tech support for 2 hours and they agreed I will not be able to do it until ATT provisions the FUZE units to the BB connect service.

  1. I thought it was possible to change the background on the Fuze by default [w/o installing any cab files, etc.]?
  2. Also, when I tried to change things on my today screen, such as putting the device lock on the today screen, it never shows up. When I go back into the settings, the box is unchecked, repeatedly. I can not get this to work.
  3. And I thought when the stylus was pulled out, it was supposed to wake up my device? Is there any settings for this, or what?
  4. Lastly, I know most people don't care, but when I went into the AT&T tab, and selected the Games & Apps folder, it was empty. Is this the same for everyone?
 
Can my phone be defective? I think this phone is nice, certainly something that I'd have to get used to, but I'm questioning if I rather keep my tilt or not. Help!

I am having the problem now with the stylus not waking up the phone, what is ATTs replacement policy? Do I have to gather all of the accessories up or will they just swap out the phone? or will they have us go through htc?

First thirty (30) days after purchase, no "regrets" policy. You can exchange for new phone.
For the following eleven (11) months, you are stuck with warranty replacement. You might get a new phone or a refurbished. You will not know until you receive it.

The only problem I seem to have is a sync problem. Sometimes it syncs up just fine others it does not. It takes a couple times to plug it in and it finally syncs up. I believe it has something to do with the phone not recognizing when the device is plugged in. I notice when I plug it in sometimes the 3g designation stays on and thus no sync. Other times it goes directly to the arrows pointing different directions indicating it is trying to sync. Hope they come out with a fix sometime.

Hi all,
 
Is anyone else having trouble hearing your calls? I turn the volume button all the way up, but still I can barely hear the caller.

You might want to try this & see if it helps your sync issues.

Settings > Connections > USB to PC.  You should have the Activesync enabled.  You might want to try unchecking the box for Enable advanced network functionality.

That feature works by means of a microswitch near the mouth of the stylus silo.  If you look inside with a flashlight, you'll see a small switch that is supposed to pop up when you remove the stylus.  Some people have reported it getting stuck in the depressed position and that they have been able to free it with a toothpick.  If not, then you should definitely exchange your phone for a working unit.

(I don't know AT&T's replacement policy.)

I think I figured out my problem, at least here on my work machine. I have Blackice running as a firewall. I turn that off and it syncs just fine. I will see what I have at home that is screwing it up there. I am sure it is something going. Thanks for your input

I went to this link and tried their solution but it didn't work for me.  Instead, when you're in a doc or message and using the touch keyboard, if you touch the arrow next to the keyboard icon (bottom center of screen) a menu pops up.  At the top of the menu is "Touch Input Settings".  If you click on that you can check the boxes next to the options you want to use.  This only works for the input options that are preinstalled.  I installed SPB keyboard and I can't get word completion to work though.

Also, does anyone know how to get word completion to work with the slide out keyboard.  I'm having no luck.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I turn the volume button all the way up, but still I can barely hear the caller.

Same hear. It's up full but hardly anything audible. The rear speaker and music/video playing is fair to good. ( and WHY would someone put a speaker on the back of something you watch on the front!?) Head phones are good and strong, but that ear speaker stinks! Anyone other that gadgetgurl and me having this problem - got a fix?? Thanks,  ed

I don't know if it is the same as the in Fuze as it is in the Tilt, but you have to adjust your call speaker phone while making a call.
During a call, touch the speaker phone icon on the top bar and adjust it like normal
