    Actually, it is if you root your Bionic. Titanium Backup makes it easy.

    Does anyone know how to use a specific notification sound for a specific contact? I can't find an option to change it. I see one to change the ringtone for when they call me, but not for when they txt.

    Thanks!

    Bring up the contact, menu button, options, ringtone

    Then pick the ring tone out you want to use.

    I don't think you can do it with the stock text messaging, but you can do it with HandCent and GoSMSPro. I use GoSMSPro. You can set individual notification tones for contacts as well as status bar icons. If you decide to use GoSMS, you can go to the settings menu and under the advanced tab, choose individual settings and there you go!

    Thanks, but thats exactly what I didn't want to do. I wanted to personalize the notification sound, I already have custom ringtones.

    I'm a newbie to Android. I have a bionic with a charging doc. Until recently, when I had put my bionic in the dock it showed the time in large numbers, which I like (no icons). Lately, it has stopped doing that and shows my icons then the screen will turn off. I didn't change any settings that I know of. Any idea how I can get the screen to display only the time again while in the dock?

    I noticed there isn't a Tips and Tricks thread yet for the Bionic, so thought I'd start one...

    While trying to organize my Bionic's apps into home screen folders that I created from widgets, I discovered an efficient way to do this using the stock App Tray. It may seem involved the first time through, but once you do it, it becomes easy. In about 20 minutes, I organized all my 156 apps into 9 folders - all now placed on my home screen. Also, you can access these folders individually via the upper left icon on the App Draw screen.

    Here's how...

    App Tray icon on home screen > icon on upper left corner of App Tray > New Group > Name it (ex: Media, Travel or ??) > press/hold folder icon on upper left corner > choose icon for the folder > THEN touch the icon immediately to the RIGHT of the folder name (a 3.5 floppy?) > Message "Empty group. select the "add" icon to add apps" > touch the "+" > apps list appears (check those you want in the folder) > OK

    If you want to put the folder icon on your home screen - App Drawer > Press/hold folder icon in the upper left corner > touch selected folder > Add to Home.

    You can add or delete apps from any folder at any time - or delete the whole folder, if you want. The presence of folders does NOT change the master App Drawer in any way.
    Thanks for that tip...very helpful

    This is for the people who have the 902 version of android and can't get root. I found a apk that runs from win7 that put root into my droid bionic and it was called Motofail_windows. I tried just about every root a apk out there and this is the only one that gave me a rooted phone. I hope this helps some of you out there and I don't remember where I found the apk so your going to have to look for it.

    Install Google calendar sync on your computer and it will keep your Google calendar and Outlook calendar synchronized.

    Hi. This may be old news to some but I was reasearching on how I could possibly use my new Droid Bionic as a mobile hotspot without having to pay Verizon Wireless an additional fee for that priviledge! I found a free app called Foxfi and it does exactly what I was hoping!! You just open the app and active Wi-Fi Hotspot and bingo.... you can now share your existing data with a laptop, ipod Touch...whatever and there is no additional cost as it again draws from your existing data plan.

    Thanks a bunch for letting us know about this program. I just downloaded this program and this works great! I don't use it enough to justify Verizon's fee but it's nice to have in case I need it in a pinch. This program fits the bill for me.
