Tablet froze up and can't open up do I need a SIM card?


try holding in power button for up to a minute to force tablet to power down and then try powering it up again. Do you need a sim card depends if Tablet accesses mobile data from the mobile phone network. Some tablets only have Wi-Fi and would need a Wi FI network or WI FI mobile phone router device setup to work together in tandem.

Connecting my motorola defy to wifi router


Go to 'Menu > Settings > Wireless & networks > Wi-Fi settings', and, if the 'Wi-Fi' checkbox is unticked, tick it. After a little while, a list of available networks will be shown. If you want to refresh that list, tap 'Menu > Scan'. Anyway, if the network you want to connect to is in the list, tap over it and tap 'Connect'. You will be prompted to fill in the passphrase (if any). Otherwise, i.e. your network is not shown (e.g. it is hidden), tap 'Add Wi-Fi network', fill in its name, under 'Network SSID', the security encryption method, and the password (if any). Then, tap 'Save'. You can also specify your Wi-Fi sleep policy and other settings, by tapping 'Menu > Advanced'. After you finish, tap 'Menu > Save'. Again, press the back button as many times you need to go back to where you were before.
By the way, if your phone's user guide happens to be missing, feel free to download it from this location.
Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you out any further.

I dont seem to have internet access i did 4-5 days back but now nothing Its a Motorola Defy I must have dissabled it unintentionally....


If you mean you want to access the internet through your mobile data plan, go to 'Menu > Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks > Access point names', and make sure your carrier's data plan name is shown there. If so, tap over it and change the data, mainly 'APN', 'Username' and 'Passowrd', according to your carrier's instructions. Otherwise, i.e. if there is no data plan shown at all, tap 'Menu > New APN', and fill in the required data. In both cases, after you finish, press 'Menu > Save'. Then, press the back button as many times as required to take you where you were, before you started changing these settings.
On the other hand, if your intention is to access the internet through your phone's Wi-Fi card, go to 'Menu > Settings > Wireless & networks > Wi-Fi settings', and, if the 'Wi-Fi' checkbox is unticked, tick it. After a little while, a list of available networks will be shown. If you want to refresh that list, tap 'Menu > Scan'. Anyway, if the network you want to connect to is in the list, tap over it and tap 'Connect'. You will be prompted to fill in the passphrase (if any). Otherwise, i.e. your network is not shown (e.g. it is hidden), tap 'Add Wi-Fi network', fill in its name, under 'Network SSID', the security encryption method, and the password (if any). Then, tap 'Save'. You can also specify your Wi-Fi sleep policy and other settings, by tapping 'Menu > Advanced'. After you finish, tap 'Menu > Save'. Again, press the back button as many times you need to go back to where you were before.

My Motorola Defy will not hold a charge. Had full charge at 8:00 Am and by 2:00 PM battery was dead. No apps running or Wi-FI on. Second day in row this has happened


The DEFY is feature-rich and can run a virtually limitless number of applications, making it useful for many tasks. Your particular usage will affect how long you can go before recharging your battery. Playing games, running applications, and surfing the Web increase the power use of the computer-like functions of the DEFY Calling and texting utilize its phone functions. Depending on your use mix, time between charges will vary. We know you want to use the device to its fullest and offer you these tips to help you get the most from your phone while going as long as possible between charges.
Things you should know about charging your battery.

New batteries are not fully charged. Plug the battery charger into your phone and an electrical outlet. Your phone might take several seconds to start charging the battery.

Tip: It may take several charging cycles for your battery to reach optimum performance.

The battery charger shipped with this device is designed specifically for Motorola mobile phones. Other chargers might take longer to charge your battery, or cause your calls to fail during charging.
Tips to extend battery life:
  • During initial set up of your MOTOBLUR account, your phone's battery may drain faster than usual due to the amount of data transferred. After the initial sync, and a few charging cycles, your battery will reach its maximum capacity.
  • We strongly recommend to keep the phone attached to the charger during the MOTOBLUR initial sync.
  • When not transmitting a lot of data or surfing the Web, set your device to connect to 2G network.
  • When setting the phone down after use, quickly press the power key to invoke a blank screen. Selecting a shorter back light duration will also help conserve power by blanking the screen when not in use.
  • Lower the display brightness.
  • Use the AC adapter to charge your phone whenever possible.
  • Toggle Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS on or off as needed. There are some apps that can help do this easily. While we do not endorse or guarantee these solutions, or provide support for them, some owners have reported success using an application called "Battery Widget " which can be downloaded from Android market.
  • Ensure applications are closed when not in use.
  • Clear all notifications from the notification bar as much as possible. Click Here to learn more about notifications.
  • We suggest charging each night so you start the day fully charged and ready to go!


Motorola DEFY Battery Manager - Benefits

A feature called Battery Manager is now part of the DEFY software

  • It provides options for significant battery savings by reducing data traffic when not needed, and by dimming screen when battery is low.
  • Two optional settings:

· With this feature: After a period of inactivity, background data updates stop until the user starts using the device again.

· Without this feature: background data is constantly updated (Email, Social Networking, News Feeds, etc.), even overnight.

Auto Brightness

· When Battery Level gets low, screen automatically dims.

Battery Manager: How To Use It

Wifi is set up, how do I connect to it without going on line via vodafone? Thanks


When you are connected to an Wi-Fi network, internet data should flow through it, instead of your carrier's data plan. You can verify this behaviour looking at the notification bar: the Wi-Fi icon (blue bars) is in the positition usually reserved for the mobile network one (G, E, 3G, H), and not side by side with it. To be sure that your carrier's data plan won't be used, go to 'Menu > Settings > Data manager > Data delivery' and untick 'Data enabled'.
Hope it works for you.
Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you any further.
Regards, Carlos
