The Weekly Q&A

Every week, we select five questions and answers, found on the forums. Even though some of these questions and answers might not be of help for you, they might still be interesting to read.

Q ‘I recently got an unlimited data plan through Verizon, while my internet and map searches work well, my phone (Vogue) cannot get any GPS satellites. I’ve changed the baud rate several times but still nothing. I am using NFSFAN’s WinMo 6.5 from October I think. Anyone have any suggestions?’

A GPS in the Vogue is not the greatest, but it works when it feels like it. Aside from changing the baud rate (which should be left at 4800 for the Vogue), you need to make sure that your device is on a radio 3.xx.xxx or higher. Also, make sure that whatever app you use, is configured for COM4. Lastly, make sure that location is tuned on. It may take a while for the Vogue to get a lock on satellites, but it works eventually.

  • Q&A originally posted in the HTC Vogue General Forum thread.

Q ‘How do I go about relocking the rhodium from sprint for my warranty return? any help would be appreciated. thanks for in advance.’

A You have to flash back to stock SPL and also back to stock rom. To find out how to flash back to stock SPL, please take a look at the following thread.

  • Q&A originally posted in the Rhodium CDMA Forum thread.

Q ‘So, are HSPA+ phones retrocompatible with HSPA networks?’

A Short answer is yes. Will you be able to use the full potential of the newer one on an older network? Not likely.

Q ‘New to the site and not EXTREMELY computer savy, but i have the HD2, and someone told me that on this site you can find out how to change it to the android operating system, any chance of helping me out with that’

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop.

But it'll be a long time...
