comment How to allow Android Market License Check through a secured network?
And you can still block users from the Market too? Impressive find!

comment Pandora pauses randomly?
I think it's a bug with their Android client. I have the same problem -- it even happens on my home WiFi! When I use my desktop or laptop systems (website or AIR app) it's fine.

comment Pandora pauses randomly?
@Joe: They don't need to, a store could simply use femtocells to make sure that the signal is very strong in their store and able to handle the load of a concentration of phones (for both display models and customer's phones). It'd be a pretty underhanded thing for them to do if the area's signal was otherwise poor though.

+1 - It's going to be the first thing that VZW support suggests anyway.

comment Moto Droid v1 disabling primary Wireless AP
My wife's Droid 1 has problems connecting to our AP too. Sleep Policy is set to "Never", but that hasn't helped. Happens on all of the stock ROMs, CyanogenMod, and Sapphire.

comment Is it normal for Android System to be the top battery user?
Those seem to be awfully high numbers for Cell Standby and Phone Idle too -- what's your signal strength like? Being in an area with poor reception can cause your radios to use a lot of extra power.

comment Why are some songs are not named correctly in media players?
It's not that strange once you start to see the mishmash of different tagging pseudo standards. Between ID3v1, ID3v1.1, ID3v2.3, ID3v2.4, and APEv2 it's bad enough. Then you have the differences between how different players use those tagging standards to store information. Add in the various tag parsing, writing, and codepage bugs and hacks in different players over the years, and it's amazing that any info can be passed between programs at all.

comment Does the HTC Droid Incredible Ship with Android 2.2 (Froyo)?
2.2 has been out long enough, and the device is popular enough, that any new Incredible that the OP orders is going to ship with 2.2. In fact, I think that all SLCD Incredibles (which the OP will get) are 2.2.

comment Is a Class 10 MicroSD overkill or is a Class 6 adequate?
This, of course, assumes that the phone can actually take advantage of the additional performance. Other bits (controller, CPU, etc.) might end up becoming bottlenecks or reduce the utility of a Class 10 card. It might be more useful for the OP to get a larger card instead of a faster one.

comment What are some Facebook contact integration alternatives?
Bonus: If you have contacts that aren't linked (most probable cause: name differences), if you edit the contact and tap the menu icon, there's probably going to be a "Join" item that lets you manually select the Facebook contact.

comment How do I unroot my Evo (using unrevoked 3.21)
The RUU is basically a nice, executable version of step 2. The OP will need to flash S-ON first, then either flash the RUU or the ROM extracted from it.

comment How can I boost the volume on my Droid's speaker?
I've gotta ask: Why? The speaker on my wife's Droid is LOUD when it's turned up all the way. Beyond that, I haven't seen anything myself that does what you're looking for -- sorry I can't actually help.
