Re: Unable to access some Market apps even after Market fix?

I can confirm bhmm's technique works.
I can't find the new 10.2 adobe flash in my market until I did the "unfix" and I found pocket legends, too but still can't get MLB at bat. I'm using the A28.

Re: Google Voice how to?

Sipdroid. From the Market. There is no wizard. There is no button. Geez. Bad news, you're right. I just tried using the GV and pbxes setup button, I get a notice that states Capacity Exceeded Automatic Account Creation Has Been Disabled. I uninstalled and re-installed Sipdriod 3x and the GV and Pbx...

Re: Google Voice how to?

I upgraded my GV account and obtained a phone number last night. Today I was going to go through the Sipdroid setup but forgot to bring my phone number to the wifi hotspot. I deleted the old sipdroid and dl'ed a new one from Google Market. When you first open the app on the bottom it has a button to...

Re: Google Voice how to?

You won't get the automated options unless you uninstall and then re-install Sipdroid. The automated options only appear upon first install. If you've setup a pbxes account, don't use that account, have the wizard setup a new pbxes account. Also, if you've manually configured your GV to work with a...

Re: Archos Plus LG Optimus V:new best deal in town

As a long time virgin mobile customer and Intercept owner, VM blocks tethering to other appliances. THE ARCHOS WILL NOT LINK TO THE PHONE. They also block blue tooth to everything except select ear pieces. That said, I do have 300 mins, android, and unlimited everything else. If I needed to buy ano...

Re: Thinking about getting the A32 please help!

I second what gondel stated. I too, have the A28, and will probably not be happy with the 32 because the screen is too small. I mainly use it to check my e-mails at public hotspots and to listen to a couple of CDs I've put on it. MLB at bat 11 and angry birds seasons works well on my 28. I don't kno...

Re: Bought my wife an iPad - here are my thoughts

Thank you for that review. If i were rich, I would get the Ipad but since I'm poor with no credit card, it's really not in my future.
I didn't know Itunes needed a credit card for their free apps. It probably will be Archos for me.

Re: Playon (Hulu, Netflix, etc) now available for Android

I've been using PlayOn since 2008 when it was in beta. Absolutely wonderful service and worth every penny. For the record, for those of you who don't have the option of a flat fee.. it's only $40 for the first year, and $20 thereafter. The $20 yearly is basically a service fee, as they are constant...

Re: Price Changes for A43, A70 and A101 on Archos.com

Hasn't hit any of the brick and mortar stores yet. J and R and B&H prices still the same.
Maybe the tablet PC craze got people interested in Archos.

Re: archos 70 and android market place

I get that too on my 28 trying to get into Market.
I'll wait till I get a reliable wifi signal to try it again. If not, I'll see what happens when I set up a new Google account.

Re: Firmware 2.1.04 released - report bugs here

[quote="CrunchyDoodle"]With my A43, I noticed that the warning about putting a finger or two over the lower right corner of the device is real. That's where the WiFi antenna is and if the signal is a bit weak, lifting my finger can mean connecting or not connecting. I'll assume the other phone-sized...

Re: Firmware 2.1.04 released - report bugs here

I updated my A28 via dl to device.
I've noticed the wifi appears weaker, I used to be able to connect to a signal with one dot.
Now it shows Out of Range. No files were deleted, so far so good.
Battery seems OK, I'm letting it discharge. Last night at 51, this morning at 45.

Re: Firmware 2.1.04 released - report bugs here

I tried updating my firmware via public hotspot, it got stuck at 79 percent. I'll try it again at a warmer place. My A28 shows firmware ver. 1.0.90. I checked the archos site and there's no 1.0.90 firmware, I just bought this at J&R. (usa) Sidenote, wifi was much faster than my Ipaq and now I know I...

Re: Why did you chose an Archos device?

Honestly? For me, it was the price. I just bought my Archos 28 yesterday. It was either this or find a Maylong m-150 that's on sale for $100. Duane Reade was selling them for that price over the Christmas holiday. This is at the moment the cheapest Wifi enabled device for me to check my e-mails. Pre...
