How is it possible that people have the 2.3.6 update? I have been trying to update via OTA from 2.3.4 and the phone is telling me that it already has the latest software update? !
Also a word of advice, for those of you with the JCB EDITION, *DO NOT* factory reset without backing up the JCB app as a factory reset will wipe it from the phone.
There is a really usefull file manager app called andro zip on the market place which will let you back up apps.
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2011Do DEFY+ has wet finger tracking? I have sweaty hands and have difficulty handling other capa... moresweaty hands here too...works like a charm..only problem is that the back cover turns into a shade of light green overtime.
A quick question to Defy+ users : can this rugged beast snaps a picture when submerging into water? SE Xperia active can do as such knowing that they have shutter button. Thanks.
awesome phone in the market by motorola!
best deal!What else can u ask for! great display, decent photo, high quality sound!,minimalist and user-friendly UI,updated os version,...etc,AND affordable price!, water resistant and dust proof are just consolations I think...i
Perfect pick for price but browsing internet drains battery very soon. Only checking updates on internet would last for a day or two.
It had social widget which is just awesome and of-course the Moto UI.
I'm not able to delete MotoBlur twitter account even after revoking access from twitter account ... a real headache ...
Last but not least the IP67 certification.. scratch, dust and water proof ..

Super phone. This time Motorola made the BEST!

Woops. You can bring up a menu by long holding on the message (can't find that in the manual though) and choosing to 'Resend unsent messages' (um oxymoron).
Did not work the other day when I was attempting to do so on three messages but I stand corrected the standard SMS functionality can resend.
Still not using default message system now as there is no carriage returns in SMS and there is no option to preview more of the message by removing the grey heads.

I will check the manual again though.

bought this phone in India,hyderabad for Rs.16700..M loving it..but m really not satisfied with the battery backup. The only reason I chose Defy+ over defy was the bigger battery, only to find that this is also not enough. The battery is totally drained at the end of the day, with 15-25 calls,2-3 hours wifi,1 hr music and a few messages. That's it. I don't even use 3G and other sim based internet services.
DanBal76, 06 Jan 2012Great phone, but lets be honest, Defy+ is nothing more than a regular Defy. The CPU between th... moreI don't think it is any secret that it is the same hardware apart from the battery.
Note that if you put a Defy ROM on a Defy+ then the battery does not fully charge. only a few ROMs for the Defy+ at the moment.
I think of the Defy+ as just being the spec that the Defy should have been in the first place (with a faster processor). The larger battery obviously allows for the over clocking.
