how can i make my sprint Q stay on evdo? it goes on like once in a blue moon.
That's how mine was when I first got it last Feb. A few months later after talking to a rep at a sprint store, they forced my phone to take a update to the "tower list". I don't think they actually call it the tower list, but thats what it is. Then after they do something I called *2. Instead of the normal options when calling *2, it says something about "your phone is about to get an update do not hang up." After that I was on the EVDO network about 80% more often!
It could be as simple as that, or you just live in a rural area that doesn't have newer cell towers.
This forum is not really for this subject anyway. If you want more info about evdo service goto http://www.EVDOforums.com
is there any kind of middle ground to make it tad faster and still good battery
I do not think anyone is saying there is any battery loss. Your battery will run out fast no matter what you do to the Q. LOL :tounge:
PS- I just got two big batteries off ebay, so far I am impressed with the extended battery life!
Can anyone help with this?
So what's the latest consensus on what's the better hack - profile or threshold? BTW, I don't have insurance on my Q9c (yet) :wink:
Threshold. Profile adjusts automatically after you edit the threshold.
Thanks! I just tried the hack - seems to work pretty well... what are your feelings about potential risk of damaging the phone?
Also - I just checked my memory usage under task manager and I'm just idling between 3 & 4% so the CPU only runs full tilt when its fully running apps right? I was worried because I thought it ran at 314 100% of the time. When not in use or no major apps running its possible for the CPU to run slowly.
those values look like percentages to me.
i.e. CPU usage > 60% and CPU speed is increased to 208mhz, CPU usage > 85% increase to 312mhz
Yes, and Steve already does mention that in his post...
I'm also looking for the original shell memory value. Did you ever find out?
Or, you could optimize those settings to get better battery life, and good performance.
I've looked everywhere in the Q9h registry, one reference to threshhold's is in the Backlight folder which can't be correct. I don't know if anyone else recently has found the folder if it even exists for our phones. Tho it would be really cool if it does actually exist.
That happens with the Verizon Blackberrys. They once in awhile need to update the towers around them. This baisicly tells the phone what towers are around and what services the towers offer the phone.
I realized why there is no folder for Q9h users, the cpu is already set at 315 mhz if the benchmark on TCPMP is correct.
hey warfarin are u related to coumodin and InR?
When TCPMP is open, it may put the cpu under enough load at the time it checks, causing it to show full speed, even if it doesn't always run that way.
No, like 10 years when I started playing online games like Counter Strike I needed a handle and I saw this drug and I thought the word sounded cool, now it's just stuck with me.
lol so you precede the pharma tag....you know that could be copy right infringment lol
sorry to interupt post ttfn
