  1. Why would you try to replace the screen yourself if it's under warranty? 😕
  2. I still have my Priv configured on the car's bluetooth but no other devices.
  3. Mine works fine with a bluetooth mouse with no issues. My car's handsfree audio is a whole different story. Whilst it seems to connect to the car's system in that it shows my contacts information, phone history and I can instigate a phone call via the car's system, when making a call, the audio doesn't consistently transfers to the car's system. The annoying thing about it is that I can't tell if it's going to work or not until I make the call. Even if the phone is connected and the audio is transferred successfully at the start of a journey, if I make a call later in the journey it may
  4. I generally have it sitting open on top of my laptop which is closed (external peripherals for laptop) and primarily interact with it via a bluetooth mouse. I don't use it much for phone calls (Skype for Business on my laptop when working) and only need to type for messaging apps.
  5. I'm all for it. Any company that is willing to develop smartphones with QWERTY keyboards gets my support (not necessarily financially). Not too sure about the name though. It's only one letter away from https://astroglide.com/products
  6. I don't have this issue with the phone applications but I do with WhatsApp calling. I believe I am on the "suspended" OTA update.
  7. I am indeed following @EskeRahn's advice and using an old charger from my HTC Touch Pro2 or my laptop. So hopefully it will last for years 😁
  8. I've had experience in fixing laptops for years and even disassembled the odd tablet or two. By far the scariest experience was replacing the battery in my Priv. Personally I don't think I'd have the confidence to disassemble my Pro1 even with the service instructions. I had hoped the battery would be easier to replace. Maybe I need to wait for the Pro2 for a user replaceable battery...
  9. Just for information, I was in email contact with the guys at MediaDevil.com. They said they were interested in developing cases and screen protectors for the Pro1. In our last email they said; "We're hoping to get the Pro1 at some point for testing and screen protector design but with a few other projects in the air at the moment it's a little tricky, and odds are good we will be contacting the manufacturer at some point"
  10. Thanks @EskeRahn. Does @Erik work in a support role? Is there a way of contacting him for confirmation?
  11. Is it via this forum, the Support button on the main website or by sending an email to [email protected]? How will I know if it has been received/acknowledged? How will I know that it is being investigated? How will I know that or when it will be fixed? Thanks.
  12. Thanks to the guys at MediaDevil, after a couple more attempts we found that their iPhone 6/7/8 Plus leather pulltab case is a far better fit for the Pro1. They ship internationally and I could not recommend their customer service enough. Also the quality and workmanship of the case is excellent. https://mediadevil.com/collections/apple-iphone-8-plus-accessories/products/artisanpouch-leather-pouch-case-apple-iphone-6-plus
  13. If anyone is interested in a well made leather pouch with a pull tab, I recently bought this one from MediaDevil in the UK. I tried a couple of different sizes. It's not perfect as the phone does protrude from the top a bit and it could do with being slightly narrower but until someone produces a custom fitted case for the Pro1 it's a bit more robust than the fabric sleave suplied by F(x)Tec. (It does have a couple of small holes at the back for what I assume is for a speaker on the back of the note 4). https://mediadevil.com/collections/all/products/artisanpouch-leather-pouch-case-sam
  14. Great recommendation. Liking this a lot.
  15. I'm also having bluetooth connectivty issues to a 2017 BMW iDrive hands free kit. I was able to pair with the car and I am even able to make phone calls using the iDrive interface but the call never transfers to the car's audio system even if the phone says it is using the bluetooth connection. Also previously on my Priv, I was able to press the speak button on the steering wheel and remotely listen to new text messages and reply via the iDrive interface even though I'm pretty sure it was using Google to do this. I can't seem to do this on the Pro1.
  16. @shani I stand by my original comment.
  17. Thanks @VaZso. Got it. Settings > Calling Accounts > "specific SiM card" > GSM call settings > Additional Settings > Caller ID. Talk about being buried in the menu settings!
  18. This may be more of an Android question than a Pro1 question. I have two SIMs installed. One is my work SIM which unfortunately is on EE (awful reception everywhere). I have purchased a PAYG SIM from giffgaff which being on O2 has a far better reception. I want to be able to make calls from my giffgaff SIM when I can't get a good signal on my EE SIM but I don't want the giffgaff number to be made public. Is it possible to set the giffgaff SIM to withhold my number but leave the EE SIM available? To be honest I can't see an option anywhere to withhold the number for any of the
  19. I'm been using it now for almost a week and I love it. I love the quality feel of the aluminium after my plastic backed Priv however it is slippery as hell. I am using the supplied sleeve after applying several coats of Scotchgurad, which I do like. I would really like the same design but made from a good quality (black) leather. I might also have to stick something on it to give me a bit more grip. Figuring out the best way to open the keyboard was a challenge but the videos really helped. All my previous phones were eithers straight slider or clamshell. I haven't quite figured o
  20. I recall a previous forum member said they purchased this leather sleave https://www.etsy.com/listing/719311781/leather-sleeve-for-galaxy-s10-full-grain?ref=landingpage_similar_listing_top-3&frs=1 after providing the dimensions of the Pro1 but this was before they had recieved their phone. I can't remember who it was but I would love to hear their review on the fit and quality. It's seems a bit steep at £46 though. (I wouldn't have been able to type this on the Pro1 keyboard as I can't figure out how to type the £ sign).
  21. Mine does something similar but doesn't pivot as much on the hinge. Also the volume rocker rattles a little bit. The phone has moving parts and you're comparing it with a phone that doesn't have moving parts. My Blackberry Priv also has a similar issue when you tap the screen.
  22. I don't know about headaches but it may cause respiratory infections 😁
  23. But the public holiday starts on the 24th.
