Does this Phone have a notification led? i saw a video with a green light blinking in the top right corner when the screen was locked does it have one?
I have been using this Milestone 2, Since 1 year and its pretty awesome.. I have upgraded the phone to v2.3.4 before 6 months & it was working very well & the built quality was great. Can anyone guide me how to upgrade this phone to Ice-Cream Sandwich?
I have used this phone for a few months right now and got it for real cheap since in africa you dont get much Motorola. its almost non existant
But i must say this phone has worked perfectly only it falling has been my problem.
This is by far the worst phone I've ever used. The phone itself lags all the time and everything is so badly coded, even the lockscreen glitches. The biggest annoyance is that when launching an app, it lags and then freezes, the phone glitches all over and often just does a reset all by itself. You can't do anything substantial on this phone. The default music app won't repeat your songs in "repeat one" mode. A physical keyboard should be superior to digital typing, but no, even typing on it's physical keyboard feels laggy. There are no system/software updates whatsoever. Motorola completely abandons previous users. You can't take Motorola seriously anymore. I'm never buying a Motorola again.
Ryan, 12 Jul 2012I would not advise anyone to buy this phone...Immediately after buying, the physical keyboard ... morethe 'double pressing' you describe is a software bug in the stock Gingerbread firmware. I can confirm flashing up to ICS or Jellybean *will* resolve this issue.
I have owned this phone for 3 years. Recently upgrade it to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Don't let the horror stories about the locked bootloader fool you - There are currently NO other Android phones on the market with a hardware keyboard, or as good build quality. ICS gives new life to this phone now that Motorola no longer support it.
I have this in Hong Kong, and I have to say.... the stock rom is totally rubbish! It lags and everything runs the opposite of smoothly. This is why I flashed a custom rom on it very early. Now I am using a CM10 rom and the phone is silky smooth, everything is slappy. So summary: Good hardware, must flash custom rom
I would not advise anyone to buy this phone...Immediately after buying, the physical keyboard started double pressing letter and stuff like that..i researched it and realised a lot of persons had the problem..i downloaded and app to fix it but it did not work completely. After six months the right side of the touch screen went dead. I researched it and realised that a lot of persons had the problem also...
andoxlee, 16 Apr 2012can u share me hw to upgrade milestone 2 to 2.3!hi go settings and touch the ABOUT PHONE and touch system updates... if update available then u can download it..but u need to wifi for download this file
the rubber on the hardware keyboard is popping out on individual keys, any ideas on how to mend it?
to upgrade to android 2.3, download MOTOROLA SOFTWARE UPDATER and follow the instructions... worked fine for me, it takes maybe 20 min, and best of all, does NOT delete any of your existing data (i removed my memory card before the update)
