You cannot select which contacts to sync, but you can limit which groups are visible in the Contacts/Dialer apps: In the Contacts app go to Menu -> Display options. Under the "Choose contacts to display" section, tap on the arrow next to your Gmail account to expand it. Uncheck all groups except "System Group: My Contacts" and tap the "Done" button. ...

Unlocking the bootloader performs a factory-reset on the phone, deleting all the user data. It doesn't wipe the ROM. If you're just trying to back up the stock ROM before flashing (a sensible precaution), then you can safely do that after unlocking the bootloader. If you want to back up your user data (i.e. installed apps and their data, contacts, etc.), ...

Rooting the Atrix 4G does only that - gives you elevated privileges on stock OS. In order to be able to install a different recovery image and custom ROMs, the phone's bootloader must be unlocked first. This is a fairly complicated process that carries the usual warnings and disclaimers of modifying phone software. It will most definitely void your ...

Sounds like a hardware issue. I suggest promptly replacing it with your carrier before your return grace period is up (30 days with AT&T, for example.) You will need to do this at the same store where you purchased the handset. I have the exact same problem with my new Atrix. Unfortunately (for me) I unlocked its bootloader, so AT&T is refusing ...

i had the same issue with screen not coming to live after proximity sensor has turned it off once. I tried to boot in safe-mode and the phone is working perfectly and there is no such issue in safemode. I know this is not permanent solution (there must be some limitations of safemode, though i have no idea about them), but it atleast points us that this is ...

I'd go with Tasker for this. Tasker can react on a lot of events, an incoming SMS being only one of the many. You can then have it parse the SMS text, and react on keywords. There're probably already som "profiles" out in the wild which you could adapt (just check with a Google Search), you also can find more details on SMS Notification Management - Tasker ...

I don't think it's possible to re-lock the bootloader of a Atrix 4G. You should read this too

I had the Force Close problem the error was "The process com.motorola.service.main has stopped unexpectedly please try again". Motorola support couldn't solve it so they had me send it for repair. Sent it to them 2X. When i got it back the 3rd time still had the problem so Motorola provided a replacement phone. When i received the replacement the problem ...

If you are rooted, disable your Proximity Sensor in a call. To do so, add following line to /system/build.prop file: gsm.proximity.enable=false. If you don't use Proximity Sensor other than in call, you can disable it fully. To do so, use Hardware Disabler app. But, make sure you have selected correct driver of proximity sensor, otherwise you will brick ...

I would talk to FOMA. I once got a data-only SIM from T-Mobile and my phone worked for a couple days, but then they disabled the SIM because they don't allow Android phones to be used without voice. It's pretty stupid, but that might be the situation in your case as well.
