Re: Archos 70 Case :US$5.26.-

They all look black to me, except for the strip around the edge. I hope they send me the brown edged one but I suspect I'll get the blue one just like you.

Re: Archos 70 Case :US$5.26.-

Wow that looks great. I have the $4 one from amazon but have never been a fan of the bottom sleeve thing it has. I've placed my $5.26 order. 2 Questions: 1. They show 3 colors, I requested the middle darker red/brown looking one. Did you try and specify a color? 2. Does that elastic strap change the...

Re: Wifi issues. Do you believe what Archos support said?

The A70 also has no problems connecting to a Asus RT-N16 router using WPA2-Personal with AES encryption. Never a hiccup, using automatic ip address assignment (dhcp).

Re: Battery dead sometimes after a few hours with screen off

I have a wifi icon on my desktop but when the boss pops in I got to shut that screen off quick :) I have created a Tasker (3rd party app) task that when the screen turns off it will turn the wifi off, and vice versa. I'll keep everyone updated if it solves my problem. I also noticed that the power l...

Re: Battery dead sometimes after a few hours with screen off

I leave my wifi on all the time. I will try using tasker to have it automatically turned off to see if this is what it could be. When my power button doesn't turn the screen on, holding the power button for "any" amount of time does nothing cause the battery is dead. However, I am not experiencing t...

Battery dead sometimes after a few hours with screen off?

About once a week on my A70 I will press the power button to turn the screen off. A few hours later I bust it back out to use and it's rock solid dead. I know that it's not a "battery" issue since the rest of the week my battery lasts a long time with normal usage. My best guess is that even though ...

Re: $3.50 Archos 70 case

Are there better ones for $10? I pormptly returned the Nook case that cost me over $30 as soon as I got this one. It's the best case hands down that I've seen anyone post pictures of. I don't have anything to do with the seller and I still don't mind promoting it :)

Re: I believe you owe us some answers Archos

#4 Bluetooth turns off when the screen goes off. +1 to fixing that load of garbage! In the meantime, try an application called Tasker. Someone on here pointed me to it. You can create a task that when your Screen turns on, if the bluetooth is off, it will turn it on. Works perfectly until Archos can...

Re: any easy way to close out apps that you are finished wit

Archos has given us a free task manager application by default. You can use it to see what is running and to close those applications.

On my A70 2.2 it is called System Monitor.

Re: may return the archos 70

You are totally correct, I misread the RMA page.
- 7 days refund with 15% restocking fee on non-defective unit
- 30 day exchange OR store credit on defective product (if purchased from Archos.com)
- 1 year warranty for manufacturer defects (not misuse)

Re: may return the archos 70

If I'm not mistaken, Archos offeres a 14 day return for "any" reason. If you bought it from somewhere else then maybe you can electrocute it so it stops working. I have sat on a couch and chair holding the Archos in one hand to surf the web. It is light and worked great! I have also sat on a couch a...

Re: $3.50 Archos 70 case

I find the case comparable to the ones made and sold at Barnes and Noble stores, and the differences are: - The B&N case is heavier (made of better material), but the amazon case is lighter and thinner (+1). - The B&N case has the same hard pocket at the bottom except its made of plastic. The A70 sl...

Re: $3.50 Archos 70 case

Mine shipped (under $4 total) about 10 days ago and hasn't arrived yet.

Where did you get a swype version that works with the A70? I installed it from the real Beta Swype installer and the swyping feature does not work. Only manually typing.

Re: Four Things I Don't Like About the Archos 70

Charging via USB would not take too long. That is only dependant on your PC or Laptop that is providing the power. My Droid X charges as fast from my Dell laptop as from a wall charger (both very fast). Gingerbread does not have a 256 meg requirement and neither will Honeycomb. The ram and cpu are j...

Re: ARGH my 70 just died

You mean an A70 purchsed from Archos doesn't come with a standard 1 year warranty? I guess I'm glad I used my mastercard that extends warranties for a year and guarantees that sellers have to take the product back for 90 days :-)
