Welcome to the new AT&T Community
We've got a fresh look! Take the tour to see what's new.
I've now seen two different side by side comparisons with the Samsung Skyrocket,
Other than the better display and build quality on the Vivid, the Skyrocket beats it on:
1.) Benchmark tests
2.) Download speeds
3.) Battery life
I was told that fast startup lets some apps continue running even though the phone restarts or shuts down, disabling it is like pulling the battery adter shutdown, I think.
Mostly correct. The HTC fastboot option really just puts your phone into a deep sleep instead of really powering it down, allowing it to power on quickly. So if you have apps running in the background, they won't be closed. This is especially true if something is misbehaving, powering down and back up again with fastboot activated will usually not fix the issue. Either choose the "restart" option when you hold the power button (which is a real reboot), turn off fast boot (Settings » Applications » Fastboot) or do a battery pull.
Yes, I imagine that I could disable Sense and a few other apps lol
Funny thing is when I checked what was using my battery, I saw after Display that it was Calendar that was using a lot but I would not disable that.
OK, I found it, it says I am using pta, I cannot edit the access point. If I try to hit menu and "new APN", then there is a whole list of things to enter and I do not know what goes in there.
What was this APN thing about anyway? I don't think I have a network problem.
So, you 're saying that changing my APN will stop Gmail from crashing when I view an email with a bunch of images in it?
no, I haven't had the time to look into the APN, everywhere I look says to stick with the original, PTA? APK whatever it is..
funny, I just got a text from att about an update, I'm wondering if it is a message about the one I installed or did they make a new one?
