Sprint Motorola Moto Q Smartphone Update w/ Internet

Ok so this is an update. Up until recently i never had internet on my Moto Q and in doing so didn’t care much but now i do and ive been looking at how to make it work for me!

One thing i want to point out for Moto Q users is a Speed hack. While im sure some of you have seen this and wondered what exactly will it do, let me explain what it has done for me.

I changed the first setting to 65535 and what this appeared to do was open programs on the Q much faster. So for example i would open IE icon and it would load in aprox 4 secs.

With this change its almost instantaneous. Maybe .5 secs. The same goes for Windows Media Player and TCPMP. So this registry hack is very recommended.

Moto Q Speed Increases

The following 2 hacks increase system performance significantly for me. They make the Q much more responsive:

changed limit from 16384 to

changed – CacheSize to 4096

Second hack will be making the internet FASTER!

Using a Registry Editor like Resco, edit this registry key: HKEY\Comm\Cellular Line\Parms\TcpIp\DNS

Default values are:


Change them to:


This changes the DNS servers from Sprints to Open DNS. While i have not tested this completely many people are saying it works.

Just got a new phone the Moto Q and I’ve already did some quick tweaks to basically make the battery life last longer. The tweak for me involves turning off Bluetooth and EVDO because I’m not using either of these features. I can always turn them back on but for the time being I’m going to use the phone for making calls and doing text messaging. So extending the battery life is the first priority and these are the first things I did.

Mod 1: Turn off infrared: go to Start > Settings > Connections > Beam > make sure “Receive incoming beams” is unchecked

Mod 2: Turn off Bluetooth or turn off Bluetooth when not in use: go to Start > Bluetooth > Bluetooth Manager > Settings > Select “Bluetooth OFF”

Mod 3: Shorten Display time out: – go to Start > Settings > Power Management > Display time out [this ranges from 5 seconds to 10 minutes, or Never

Mod 4 Disable EVDO to increase battery life: type ##33284# and press send >Scroll Down to Field Test Menu > HDR Preference > CDMA

1x will now be showing at the home screen meaning it’s a slower connection which is the equivalent to dial-up versus EVDO which is like high speed DSL however it will GREATLY increase battery life.

More to come

Other areas that I just found out are:

Removing an App that was installed: go to Start > Settings > More > Remove Applications

Installing Custom ringtones:

Part 1: Open ActiveSync on your pc > Double click My windows Mobile Powered Device > Application Data > Sounds > Copy ringtone into this folder

Part 2 go to Start > Settings > Sounds > Ring Tone and Press the Navigation Key Remove Applications

Automatic Profile Settings: If “Automatic” profile is set, your Q will switch your profile automatically depending on your schedules and others. For example, if you have a meeting in your calendar, it will switch to “Meeting” profile during that time and switch back when it is done.

Quick Key Lock Feature: Press Home and then Spacebar to lock your phone quickly, without having to hold down the Home button. Very useful because I found that I would hit buttons while it was in my pocket unlocked.

Call History: To view recent call history incoming missed and outgoing: Press “Spacebar” at the Home Page to access the Recent Call List or Press the “Send” button. This Is one area that I must say is not the easiest to read when you’re trying to see who has called you.

Quick access to voicemail: press and hold the number 1 button

A quick note about installing CAB files on the moto. Its pretty easy to install an app but if you have never done so you might be confused. So in order to install the cab files what I have done is send them to my moto Q and store them in a temp folder i have created. Then from the phones File Manager go into that directory and click on the filename.cab and it should ask if you would like to install.
If you are running Office6 on your moto like me you might want to know how to create a word doc, excel or Powerpoint slide in Office 06 for your smartphone. You can’t. Their is no setting to create a new document from scratch. However, what you can do is save a blank document of each type and open it, write to it, and then save it as another name.

  1. Hi,
    I learned a lot from your tips. I can’t seem to be able to write to a word doc file. I can open one that i sent from my pc. But it is view only. Any ideas?

  2. View only if im not mistaken. Maybe there is an updated version i havent looked in ages for any updates as i hardly use word and excel.

  3. Thanks for you tips! They have helped me use my Q a little bit better! I do have one question though, how do I download songs into my media player? I tried doing somethign through ActiveSync, but was unsuccessful.

  4. You go into the media player and update the library.

    open Media player.

    Menu then update library
