  1. So I guess this is my official "I'm and Idiot" post. I talked to a friend of mine who got the Pro1 and he was able to address almost all of my issues. Talk about Seller's remorse. I know you all told me, and I have to live with the fact that I had it in hand and didn't give it a chance. So it's back on the list I go, along with 7 other people I got to sign up for one. Please forgive me.

  2. Hi I'm from Germany, after I had received the stock assignment mail at the 29th of November, I got a UPS tracking number today, with a estimated arrival date of the 19th of December. Backed the moto mod and preordered the Pro1 very early as I thought, but my order number was already >11000... Greetings

  3. The bluetooth that had to pair it, remove it, and repair it. Stupidest thing ever. And the wi-fi calling was a custom T-Mobile push that they turned on the feature - apparently it needs to be done for the phone, not just the number.

  4. I do have my Pro 1, so these answers are for it. 1) Same as above, I don't want to remove the fingerprints, etc. I assume it's the same as the next case. 2) short press: nothing long press: opens the camera app. Does not take a picture. Does not allow access to any pictures, whether those taken in the current session or a previous session. I have not found any way to customize which app opens when you press the camera button. 3) (long press) launches the camera. No access to earlier photos. 4) it's a multi-stage button. half-press: focuses. full press: takes a pic

  7. Remains to be seen. I feel so much better now that I ordered another one. I don't care what the wait its. Today I went into a T-Mobile store with my husband's okay to get whatever I wanted with no regards to cost. I left the store almost in tears because nothing would do. I guess maybe I needed to learn this lesson to know what I really wanted. And I missed all you guys ❀️

  8. No, please be amused. Please laugh your ass off - my husband is. I definitely want this little puppy to grow. I learned my lesson. Now if my Nexus 5 KitKat can just nag on a little bit longer... hopefully this time it won't take a year to receive.

  9. Tha is both sad (for you) and encouraging (for the Pro1); and also, forgive me, a bit amusing. Before you get mad at me let me explain: I read the whole thread from the beginning just now so it seems the change of heart was almost instant. On the bright side, thank you for spreading the word about the Pro1 and bringing new buyers aboard! By selling it to someone else you have actually expanded the circle of influence that will be reached by your former Pro1, this can only be good for business and we all want Fxtec to succed, don't we?

  11. Picked up today in UK by UPS, delivery in France scheduled for tomorrow. 😱 😱 However, tomorrow will be a massive strike day in France, not sure I'll get it. Can't wait anyway, it's moving, and it's moving fast!

  12. I have i tracking number! πŸ™‚ It's from UPS, so far just says label created, so UPS has no day scheduled yet but from experience that will be early next week. Can't wait to check out the phone in person!! Very good job to all working on getting the phones out :-).

  14. Pro1 is currently 7th and top 10 is allowed to present product live onstage at the Last Gadget Standing finals at CES in Las Vegas. However, it is a quite tight race between 3rd - 10th. Pro1 only needs about 80 votes to 3rd place.

  15. I don't have Pro1 (yet) but I have Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact running Android 9.0 Pie with physical camera button. I believe that the action of the button is pretty much the same (on the Android level) but of course the camera app itself might be working differently. 1) With the phone screen off, but no screen lock enabled, when the button is pressed, what happens? - I am too lazy to test since I would have to delete fingerprint from the phone... 2) With the phone screen off, but with screen lock enabled, when the button is pressed what happens? - Single press: nothing happe

  16. I've just checked. Order id #40 on IGG. I think that I'm the #26 backer, but some in front of me bought more than one. I remember #26 or #2X because I counted sometime ago, when it could be done. Frustration? πŸ˜„ You could add that I bought an Moto Z2 Force, which sits brand new in some drawer and my daily Relay 4G is dying. IF, either being #26 or #40 IGG backer, I have NO stock assigned so far of the 1-2-3 batches, the question is: how may phones were actually made and sent?!? 20? 25? 39? Like I've said earlier, maybe can someone explain to me like I'm a 4 year old...

  19. [Sarcasm] No way, no how! There is ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE for this and everyone responsible, in even the slightest way, should be shot! [/Sarcasm] Your kidding right? Nothing to apologize for, the missing r could have just been a typo. It's amazing to me how well those from non-English as their first language countries write in English (which is far from easy!). Heck, English is my first language and, due to lack of sleep, I didn't even spell the word "hear" correctly the other day! Separately, Google SafetyNet means absolutely nothing to me either.

  20. Now you're going to get FxTec disqualified and won't get their free press at CES! You should edit and remove that, I haven't read the rules, but I mean common sense, don't post publicly that you cheated!

  23. You are clearly not an engineer. This is a common "problem" of engineers (note: I'm myself one), you always pursue of perfection without accounting costs or other stuff. Probably this is even "worse" if you are a startup, because your first product will mostly define your way if your survive or not. But honestly why do people buy a 650€ phone if you don't have the money in your pocket? This is a dangerous ride for just a phone (even if it is with a keyboard)

  25. The way it worked on the Z2 was that you could only see the pictures you took in the current "session" without unlocking. Seeing earlier pictures required unlocking the phone.

  30. I did try TWRP, but it has very little functionality at the moment. It did not prompt for a password, for example. I am *not* stuck at the moment. I bit the bullet and completely wiped. I was also able to root -> use phone -> unroot -> Apply OTA -> root again without losing data, which is what I really wanted. I am not likely to experiment further while that is still true. The process of getting everything working just takes too long.

  31. Well, I thought it was clear I just meant with a light tone that this thread is not the right place to argue on lawyer terms either. I guess I'll stick to the real core topic, it would be a shame to dilute the dense and non-speculative production information being posted since 87 pages.

  33. I didn't scream, but could you explain to me, like I am a 4 year old, why the promise that the first batches will be for the IGG backers has been broken? I wrote to support and they told me that it was an error. C'moon. I understood that there were manufacturing and shipping delays, I undestand if they send first to some testers or people like EskeRahn who can give tech feedback and helped the company with the forum, but I don't understand why they didn't respect such a simple promise. BTW, if I'm not mistaken, I'm #26 IGG backer (+/- 1-2). No stock assignet yet. #26!

  34. That would be true of any provider where not all the bands are supported and a person only has unsupported bands in their location. We are talking about a specific issue of T-Mobile in Chicago, IL. But to attempt to get T-Mobile working at all, it seems that the APN needs to be added manually. The APN to add has been provided in another thread, but here it is again: https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-2090

  38. It seems pretty clear to me that, for now, future shipments will go straight to customer from Hong Kong, regardless where on Earth said customer has it delivered. The part about that that is unclear to me, is if that applies to the 3rd batch that will be assigned shortly? I'm guessing yes, cuz we only know about that cuz of Erik's pre-announcement... For the 2nd batch, shipping from HK only applied outside Europe, confirmed by 2nd batch Europeans who received tracking info originating in UK, and are presently awaiting delivery this week (and outside Europe, reported deliveries in Ja

  39. I just got the Pro1 Update December Mail. The Mail I just waited for. @FxTec...why this took so long???? I'm only customer and not your friend. We may have the same interest to have this great phone but this mail came to late...You should send it in November. put there end of febuary and you have space left. Everytime remember. The people without a Phone by now pay what fxtech want or need. This Mail should be send month ago. For me all is fine now. Only the Phone is the real PRO here. Regards Panic Brothers

  43. Yes and no. I think for the most part, the Pro 1 does work right out of the box. There are some bugs being picked up in the software, but that's to be expected even with big companies, especially when the users are so tech savvy (the ones finding the bugs). As for getting US telco stuff right, small companies and international phones have always had trouble with that because, frankly, you can never do all the testing required. The big boys like Samsung, Apple and Google have the clout to work directly with the big Telcos and get their phones to all the big telcos and have the right se

  44. I think it's extremely likely that the delays and multiple other issues are caused by third parties, but I don't really care. I'm not doing business with those third parties, I'm buying from F(x)tec. And if they say something that doesn't pan out because of third parties, they still broke a promise. It's up to them then to deal with the third parties however they wish, but that doesn't change the fact that they broke a promise in that situation. It's up to them to use third parties they can trust, if they don't then they're still accountable for errors that those third parties produce. An

  46. that's very generous of you, but you shouldn't generalize. Just because people will wait calmly for their devices doesn't mean they want to let pass other people in the queue. It could help to calm down some screamers, but I think the effect on the others would lead to a worse feeling, at least if they didn't accept that explicitly. For example myself nearly never starts to scream, because I think it's worthless and it doesn't make sense to needle someone every week. But if I feel it's enough I just will take actions.

  47. I've switched from the Pro 1s native launcher (called Quickstep) to Nova launcher, which I have used for years and enjoy it's greater feature set. For now I'm not going to use the assigning keys to apps as I use a lot of input ready apps that end up with letters being printed from the held down key. If they fix that later, I will look at that feature again. Also, Quickstep organizes the homescreens into two columns which prevents you from placing widgets in the center (or at least it did me-- maybe user error). What I wanted to show is that Nova behaves very well jumping from Portrait t
