 I wonder if the battery will be compatible :) 


Now that would make the Defy I have just that little bit better.  




Didn't anybody tell you I was a hacker?

Hi all,

I am having a hard time putting video files on my Defy.

I am using drag and drop to get the files on the phone on as Motorola Media Link would take hours.

Once the files are on it says 'This file cannot be played or displayed".

Any suggestions of a file converter?

Motorola beefs up rugged Android smartphoneDefy+ hits the 'G' spot?

By Caleb Cox • Get more from this author

16th August 2011 10:16 GMT
Despite obvious distraction in the form of a rather large Google takeover yesterday, Motorola still found time to announce a Defy refresh, upping the speed of the rugged smartphone by 25 per cent.

The Motorola Defy+ now packs a 1GHz processor, which not only puts it 200MHz ahead of its predecessor, but also keeps one foot in front of Samsung's durable and similarly-specced Galaxy Xcover, announced last week.
Defy+The multi-element enduring Defy+ shares quite an alikeness with its older brethren in that it packs a 3.7in touchscreen with a scratch-resistent Corning Gorilla Glass cover, a 5Mp snapper and 2GB of storage.

While the Android OS has here been updated to 2.3 Gingerbread, the Defy+ still sports the company's front-end, Motoblur, which includes a customisable homescreen and easy access social network widgets.

The Motorola Defy+ will be out, come rain or shine, sometime this autumn. ®
 



Don't be fooled by Motorola's tactics, the DEFY+ is pretty much EXACTLY the same as the DEFY, including the processor, which has just been clocked to 1GHz instead of 800MHz, which you can easily do on your current Defy. Heck, if you have a red lensed Defy you can even get official Gingerbread running (and for all us green-lensed there's CM7 :) Only actual difference I can see is a larger battery for the Defy+ (1700mAh  vs 1540mAh)

Good news! You don't need a file converter, all you need is an app that can play a variety of formats. I strongly recommend MoboPlayer, it's fantastic. Plays just about anything you throw at it. A bit like VLC for the PC.

I was wondering if that indeed was the case.  From the get go the DEFY specs smacked of it being more capable, a lot of which was later proven to be the case (GPU and multitouch.. see XDA forums).

So we all get the new model at minimum cost.... (just got to see which camera I have)

i know it's dumb question. but does anyone tried imported defy on telecom? does it work? when I scan available networks I can see Telecom... but I guess it wont work because of different 3G frequency.

Maybe anyone tried? :)

Have not tried it, it should work but only on a limited range of telecoms frequencies.

I just got my Defy from Expert Infotech. It came with andriod 2.2.2 pre-installed. Laughing
I bypassed the motoblur setup and everything works well. Anyone know how I can load my contacts from a csv? Apparently you need a motoblur account to do this. Cheers

Are you going to use google to manage your contacts? Its by far the easiest to sync with that - you can import/export a variety of formats that way too.

alright, weird situation.

I've just came from Telecom store where I tried Telecom SIM in my UK defy. What i've got is an "Emergency calls only" message in status bar. Checked settings: 3G Only enabled. Tried manually set Telecom NZ as network, got a message that I can not register my SIM this time. So me and helpful lady in the store decided it's not compatible with Telecom, checked IMEI - looks like not compatible.

However, on Monday I've tested my mate's Telecom SIM and all looked fine, I was not cleaver enough to make any test txt or call :( and my mate is off to overseas for 3 months :( Don't have any other access to Telecom SIM to make more test, maybe it's mine custom ROM which I updated this morning... or any other issue :(

I was so tempted to make a switch and now meh :(

Maybe some one have a spare Telecom SIM I can borrow for a day or two in Auckland? I'm on Ponsonby during the working hours :) or maybe someone can definitely answer me if he/she uses imported defy from clove or any other shop on Telecom network?

Thanks guys.

It's more than likely you were using the 2100MHz infill - which is not recommended.
UK Defy will be 900MHz + 2100MHz which is good for Vodafone or 2 Degrees, but will not work well at all on Telecom.

Got my Defy running motoginger V.3 last night.

WOW. Loving this ROM. Nicer to use than CM7 by a long shot, and has Exchange company directory access unlike CM7's default mail client.

Now this is odd and odder

Few weeks ago I changed my SIM, upgraded from a fairly original 32k one to a 256k. This coincided with a plan change at VF.

I immediately noticed a SIM icon in the notification bar and having read on other threads about this wasn't too worried.

Last evening (about mid rugby) in the middle of reading a txt the phone effectively did a soft reset... powered itself off and restarted... Odd incident No.1.
However the obvious net result of this was that the SIM icon disappeared from the notification bar.

Forward to today... check the handset for missed-calls/messages (been doing lawns) and see a little Red Star in the Notification bar... Odd incident No.2.
Pull the bar down and there's some reference to 'getting a Green card' and link to a site I choose to ignore/delete (the greenback just doesn't do it for me), but it looks like some association to Motorola as theres a 'moto' reference in the url

Has anyone else seen this??

Unit is running Stock 2.2.2

^ that's very strange.   I assume you haven't rooted it?

 

I'm no expert on Android at all, but if it were running windows I'd say it's got a malware infection.  Have you tried downloading an antivirus app and running a scan?
