    Default Items waiting to upload?

    I have a new problem now, Saturday I noticed up in notification bar at top a grey arrow pointing up so I open notifications and it says 6 items waiting to upload and under that it says Remotr device offline. I tried turning phone off and on turning on computer and checking all settings on phone and PC and cannot figure out what it is and cant get it off notifications bar either.Help

    I had the same issue recently. It was pictures that I had taken that wanted to upload to MotoCast. They wouldn't upload until I connected to wi-fi. Even after I did, it took a little while before it kicked in and worked.

    I tried that keeping WIFI on for a couple hours and keeping computer on and nothing has happened.

    Unfortunately all I can tell you is be patient and it will eventually work. The icon stayed on my phone for over a day last time I ran into that issue. I just had to wait it out. Cold comfort, I know. Maybe rebooting the phone will speed things along. Worth a shot.

    What app might that be? I went into manage apps and went to close Motocast but it said something like it could mess with other things. I'm not trying to upload anything and now it says 7 items waiting to be uploaded. A device is not connected below that message so turned on PC and put phone on wifi for two hours and still there

    It's a general warning saying if you force close this it might have negative side affects to how your phone will react. Usually it won't do anything and some times it might make something else fc. Its not going to mess your phone up. At most it will just put you in a position where you have to reboot your phone. I suggest going in and fc it and see if that helps. Still doesn't work try clearing data.

    It's Dropbox. I bet you're all Dropbox users...yes?

    It automatically uploads your pictures to Dropbox. Tell Dropbox to upload over cellular, or turn that feature off, and you'll be good.

    The files waiting to upload is moto cast. If your host computer is sleeping or not online it has no place to upload too. go to my gallery go to motocast and hit the menu button, there you can turn the automatic upload off if you want

    I also experienced this as well as other problems including gps not finding location and the screen not auto-rotating when viewing photos or using the browser. Called VZW and they had me power off, pull my SIM and then replace it and power up. Problems solved. Looks as though the SIM pull replaces the battery pull on phones with non-replaceable batteries.

    BTW I had my phone in my house on wi-fi for almost 2 days except for a few short outings.

    Computer was on and tried it with WIFI and 4G for hours and nothing. When it was workig my computer didn't have to be on, I could be out for the day and sending pics via quick upload and when got home they were in my email ready for downloading. Thank you

    I figured it out, sandylove. go to:
    "my gallery" app,
    settings,
    motocast settings,
    motocast auto upload settings,
    motocast auto upload and uncheck it to disable auto upload.

    I recently formatted my computer and when i reinstalled motocast the pictures would not upload and they would be waiting. TO FIX THIS you have to go to camera then settings, motocast auto upload, motocast auto upload settings. there you can turn off auto upload or select which computer to upload to. Hope this helps.

    In my case it turned out that when I looked at my devices in Motocast on my PC, my home PC was shown twice, once as online, once as not - I moved the slider to hide the offline one. That actually was not the problem. The problem was in Autobackup settings, the wrong device was selected.
