Re: Personal hotspot + A70 = perfect

I've been using my A70 with my Nexus One hotspot since day one. That is until last week when I bought a Nexus S. :)

Re: WiFi randomly cutting out since firmware update

Same problem with my A70/8GB. I went back to 2.0.71 and my WiFi is steady as a rock. Now it does everything I want very well with the possible exception of the Flash playback in the browser not being the best. I have no intention of loading any new firmware for the forseeable future.

Re: Charging from off

When I got to work this morning, my battery was showing 25%. I plugged in the charger and kept the unit on to monitor my Twitter account. Some time later (a couple hours maybe??), it was at 98%. I don't know why yours wouldn't charge when it was on....sure not a problem with mine.

Ditto here. I used it constantly last night for several hours with no drop out--even had a 5200kbps download on Speedtest.
Happy camper!!

Re: Firmware 2.1.03 (was .02) released - report bugs here

I went back to 2.0.71 and now everything is back to normal with my WiFi. As a bonus, now my SMB works. Now that it's doing everything I want it to do, I have no plans to update the firmware without some really pressing reason to do so. :D

Re: Firmware 2.1.02 released - report bugs here

I have been thinking that even when custom ROMs are created for the device, I will probably stay with the stock rom because the video playback outperforms any other device I have used including high end phones and iPad.

Re: Firmware 2.1.02 released - report bugs here

I put the old firmware back on and now I cant seem to download anything from the market. It says my download will begin but nothing happens. Can I turn the clock back 12 hours? I had a unit I was VERY happy with back then. :(

Re: Firmware 2.1.02 released - report bugs here

For anyone with WiFi issues. I fixed mine by doing the following. First I did a complete Format / Erase. Make sure the update firmware is on your PC.. cause it will go into USB mode.. and want you to copy it over during. Then I rebooted my router. Since then WiFi is now working. Sounds worth a shot...

Re: Firmware 2.1.02 released - report bugs here

Well one thing it did fix for me is SMB. I couldn't get past a screen asking for a login, and now I can see all my files. That's cool but it's not something I'm going to use often (if at all). I have a very limited use for my A70 which is keeping up with Twitter and Facebook, some light browsing, an...

Re: Firmware 2.1.02 released - report bugs here

I'm having some problems with WiFi. I did a couple speedtests just before the upgrade and both were over 4200/1200. Since the upgrade, it seems to work intermittently--sometimes I have to turn it off and back on again in order for the browser to work. And now my speedtests are less than half of what...

Re: Swype no longer works

Or FlexT9. It's not free, but it's terrific! Finger tracking just like swype, voice translation, and the keyboard is compact and fits very well. I started a thread on FlexT9 but now I'm having a problem with it. I can't get the long press to work at all. So if I want to type a "#", I can't do it. I...

Re: RMA Update

I posted on Jan 7 that I called Archos and they had no information on my A70. I checked online again yesterday at work, and still nothing. When I got home, my new A70 was sitting on the kitchen table! Turns out they shipped it on the 6th (from Colorado). I got a brand new, shrink-wrapped unit which ...

Re: 70 vs 101 as an e-reader

I appreciate all the well reasoned responses. I've decided I'm going to hang tight and hope the A70 becomes available. One thing that helped me decide was a trip to an AT&T store today where I played with an Ipad and Tab. I just like the smaller form better. Hopefully, the wait isn't going to be too...
