Not a big fan of cases myself, but after seeing someone or the other break their N4 almost every single day (on G+), I decided to buy androidcentral.com's Lloyd TPU case (with St. Patrick's Day discount!). Since it's TPU, I can easily take it off when I'm using my phone in a safe place (or if I want to show it off). And it still looks cool even with the case on - shows everyone where _my_ loyalties lie. :)

IMO looks horrible / tacky. My phone looks beautiful ;)




this is a slap in the face!

Is MMS working for others on Telecom, I'm not sure I've actually tried.. but I noticed that when people send me an MMS all I get is a notification in the notification bar saying "Message not downloaded - Touch to review etc"

When I touch the notification it just sends me to an empty new text message screen.

I'm using the default mobile networks that were configured and I can't see what would be wrong with them. I've used these in the past with my SGS2 and could send/receive fine

Ok, an update.

Got a mate with a Nexus 4 and he sent me an MMS which shows up in the notification bar but when you press it it just takes you to a "New Message" screen

Same thing happened when I sent him a MMS message

Telecom or Android issue?

I have the same problem, but I am on Telecom too. Not sure where the problem started. Are you on a custom rom?

Just tried sending and receiving from my N4, it's on VF, the other party was on Telecom using an s3. Worked fine, even got a preview in the notification tray. Don't know anyone with an N4 on Telecom to try on sorry.

Has he sent a MMS before? For whatever reason I won't receive one (after a new rom install) until i've sent one.

Disrespective: Has he sent a MMS before? For whatever reason I won't receive one (after a new rom install) until i've sent one.


This is correct, and is usually the recommendation from VF/TC support.

PS: I hate MMS. So expensive and almost pointless.

Thinking it might be a AOSP stock messaging app + Telecom issue

Browsing the XDA forums I saw someone having issues with a AOSP ROM on a SGS2 getting the same problem.

Kitinnz.... you are the man.  I had no idea about the different ampage from the wall plugs.  I just used my wall socket from the Nexus 4 and it didn't work and was convinced it was faulty.  However after  reading your post I have a working Orb again.  Who would have thought that that slight diff in amps would have made such a difference.

Thanks heaps for your work on this


Awesome, glad your Orb is up and running! Yip, I had no idea that they output different ampage, I just thought they were all transferable - micro USB was micro USB, end of the story.  After I did my trawl online I read through the Instruction Manual that came with the orb... page 4 in a highlighted bolded box "IMPORTANT Use only the power adapter and cable that come with your charger. Using a different power adapter may damage your phone or reduce charging efficiency".  Probably should have read the instructions first...Tongue Out


Did your clock end up staying on the whole night now?

I'm thinking about getting a Nexus 4, what's the cheapest way to get a 16gb one?

Import one from google play, all the details should be in this thread, and the Nexus 4 order thread.
