Does anyone know if I need a special app to be reminded of calls/texts that I've missed? I've had this feature on Motorola phones and on Samsung.
Ideally, if I miss a call and/or text, I would like to be reminded every n minutes either by vibrate or by ringtone (whichever's activated) until I acknowledge the missed call/text.
I don't know how people live without this. I've had a Nkia for 18 months and I got tired of having to look at the screen of the phone every time I finished taking a walk(could never feel vibrates while walking) taking a shower (they're not waterproof yet), etc.
I like would like to have a clock/weather app, shortcuts to phone, camera, and messaging, battery indicator, and notifications for missed calls and texts. Another big thing for me is the ability to turn off wifi/noise/and screen brightness from the lockscreen
I came across this in the marketplace. It basically lights up your screen on and off when you have a missed call or text. You have to option to set the frequency your screen flashes to notify you (every 5, 10 seconds, etc) and for how long this goes on (1 hour, 2 hours, etc) Gonna try it out. Not sure if it's a battery drainer or not, just trying it out myself.
Any way to allow certain phone calls to come through when your phone is in airplane mode? I would like to set my phone up so that in an emergency my husband and children can reach me even if my phone is in airplane mode.
My only complaint about the Droid is the seeming lack of options for notifications.
Is there a way, or an app, that would allow you to assign different notifications to emails vs texts vs missed calls?
Also, does anyone know if there's a way to set the phone to re-notify you periodically if you have a notification that has not been looked at? I tend to leave my phone sitting on my desk at work and would like it to let me know if I missed a call or text while I was away from my desk.
Ideally I'd like to silence email notifications, but have text and missed call notifications with unique ring tones for each, and I'd like the phone to renotify me every 10 minutes or so if I have a text or missed call waiting for me.
For whatever reason, some of my contacts don't notify me when they send texts. The pop-up box shows up, but no notification at the status bar and no sound. It only happens for a few of my contacts and others work.
Not sure if this is technically the "silent bug" but calls do not even show up on the phone, they just appear as "missed call from...." no noise no other notification. I restarted phone but it did it again right away. Phone does show the 50% bug in battery info.
having problems receiving calls. When I call the phone from another line, nothing happens except its logged as a missed call. The screen doesnt light up and no options for receiving calls. This happened before I installed Google voice. I disabled Google voice and still no joy. Everything else works. I can make calls, browse over WiFi and 3G.
Sorry for my English, I use the Google translator. I ask about a small application that I'm doing. This is a custom control panel with the things I most use my own phone, you know, something to personalize it a bit I put a direct button to call my home, a shortcut to the music player, another for a given e-mail address, etc.Now I want to put a button to turn on airplane mode to at night, but this is where I'm confused. I found a lot about AIRPLANE_ MODE_CHANGED, which I understand is used to detect changes in airplane mode, but can not get anything to work, or what I find or what I do or do nothing or give forced closure. At this point I should clarify that I'm using the permissions of the manifest (android.permission. WRITE_SETTINGS, android. permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS) I really do not want a button that I change the status, what I want is a button that simply activate an airplane mode. Someone would have an explanation or example of how I can do this?
Anyone know of an app that will automatically put my phone into airplane mode? I frequently go in and out of secure facilities throughout my work day and I often forget to put my phone in airplane mode, (using the widget), causing serious battery drain. Is there an app that will do it for me after not haveing a signal for a certain period of time?
I was just wondering if there are any apps that take advantage of GPS while in airplane mode? I was really hoping the reason why apps like Maps or Google Sky didn't work without a network connection because all that data could not be stored on the phone's internal memory. Now that we can move apps to the SD card, are there any apps out there that work with the cell radio off? Or do you think we will see more of this? The only reason I ask is because I travel out of the country alot and it sure would be nice to be able to use an app like Google Maps when it would be most useful.PS.when I use the "GPS Test" app in airplane mode, the phone is seeing plenty of satellites at least 10.Also it would be nice to be able to use Google Translate when it would be most useful trying to speak the language in another country although I realize that is totally unrelated to GPS but it is related to apps2sd just irritating that it doesn't work without a network connection again, I would assume that the network connection is needed for data storage purposes? why not store it on the SD card it is only text in this case.
Is there any way to get a notification of a missed text/call/etc? Like maybe an occasional flash of the screen?
I often keep my phone on silent so I don't always notice texts. My old phone had the LED light to notify me, and before that I had an iPhone which would flash the display with a notice about the missed text/call.
I'm aware of NoLED, but I tried it and wasn't a fan, the icons are annoying. Plus it seems like it would take up battery.
I spend a good two nights a week at a good friend's house of which I don't get a cell signal at his house. I'm wondering if I can turn on airplane mode, then turn on wifi (which does work, I tried) and still get calls/texts through google voice through the wifi? Does anybody have experience with this?
Airplane mode disables bluetooth and I can't use my bluetooth stereo headphones on the plane. I have looked and I can't find a widget that will disable the cellular radio without disabling the Bluetooth. Since many planes have WiFi Internet now, it should be okay to use bluetooth which uses the same 2.4GHz frequency. Does anyone know of a widget that will disable the cellular service without disabling the bluetooth radio?
I know I shouldn't complain about receiving a 4g signal. But even when I am in airplane mode I can receive a signal in 4g. I can't make phone calls but I can use the internet. The part I don't like it that it beeps when it gets the 4g signal with notifications about emails and stuff. Anyone know how to fix it.
I have done lots of research on this, and Im confused at what to do.This is my first android phone, im trying to figure it out.I have had sprint for a few months, and coverage inside my house is terrible. Dropped calls, late texts, slow internet on my Blackberry Tour.I got the Evo, so that i could use WiFi. But, im concerned that the low signal is killing my battery. Its been a lot worse, but at the moment im at 37% Time without signal.Ive researched and found a few things:
1- I dialed *#*#4636#*#* and switched to CDMA Auto Prl
2- Also, I use WiFi while at home, but i cant turn on airplane mode, because i need to answer some calls and some texts. However, leaving airplane mode off, im concerned it will kill the battery faster while its searching for signal.
Im thinking of calling sprint and asking for the 'Airrave'.Would that fix the time with out signal, give me better reception, and save the battery?
have written code in my application to programmatically enable/ disable the airplane mode. This part of the application is working as intended. However, I also wish to disable only specific radios when the airplane mode is switched on. I found that there is the following string constant in android.provider.Settings.system: public static final String AIRPLANE_MODE_RADIOS A comma separated list of radios that need to be disabled when airplane mode is on. This overrides WIFI_ON and BLUETOOTH_ON, if Wi-Fi and bluetooth are included in the comma separated list. Constant Value: "airplane_mode_radios" So, I tried to change this system setting in my code to be able to disable only the WiFi radio in the airplane mode The problem is that doing this does not change the airplane mode as intended. It still seems to switch off all the wireless interfaces. I am using eclipse with the ADT plugin and using an Android 1.5 AVD Emulator. Can someone guide me on whether I am doing something wrong or if this is not supported on the emulator?
In my app I should do some action when a call comes but not answered by the user.I have searched in the android.telephony and the NotificationManager, but I haven't found a method to solve this problem.Does someone have an idea of how to get to know if there is a missed call on the phone or not?
ive seen alot of posts in some threads with people thinking official standby numbers are done in airplane mode. i have some proof that says otherwise. sry about the blur took them with my evo in bad light 8 days from 100% to 85%. this is just a post about official standby numbers are not done in airplane mode, otherwise they would show way higher numbers
After updating to 2.2 on tmobile when it eventually came to us how ever many weeks ago, all seemed fine untill the phone rebooted and turned back on in airplane mode - try as I did, I couldnt turn it off, none off the different ways to do it seemed to work (home screen widget, long hold on on/off button, settings-wireless and networks-airplane mode off)- I eventually, having called t-mobile who where almost as helpfull as a bag of jelly had to factory reset which did seem to sort it out.The reason I am writting now is because after reading the threads about how often people turn their phones off, I did just this. Low and behold the ruddy airplance mode was on when phone turned back on and same again, couldnt turn it off. I turned the phone on and off for about 10 times and eventually it seemed to work although I couldnt tell you why in that particular instance. Now this isnt a major issue as I do actually keep the phone turned on for the most, but I am obviously tyring to foresee possible future problems..ie battery running out, having to reboot because or a dodgy app etc Id like to know if anyone has any ideas of why this happens and anything I can do to avoid this in future. I did read an old thread on here about airplane mode sticking because of sim card age but not sure why this would make a difference, it was fine with 2.1 and only started happening after the froyo update.
im just wondering , Im going to Greece in a week and was wondering , If i use Airplane mode will it be ok to have the phone on without getting charged to hell for turning on my phone abroad?Will i be able to connect to Wifi while in Airplane mode?
Just switched from iPhone to new HTC Desire, which I love! Only one problem though! When I put my phone into airplane mode, but with wifi on, Spotify goes offline. When I take phone out of airplane mode Spotify still doesn't come back on. I want to be able to use Spotify at night, but with phone in this mode. I used to be able to do this in iPhone, am I doing something wrong? Would it have something to do with SD card?
i understand this might be a known issue (radio crash after froyo update). anybody know what to do?rooted my phone awhile ago... upgraded to Froyo a couple days ago (leaked FROYO.DJ29) and things were moving along pretty well. today while the phone was sitting inactive, it decided to go into airplane mode.the last thing it did was try to download a google maps update.i'm completely unable to get out of airplane mode. if i unselect it, it says "turning on wireless connections." but never finishes that. resetting doesn't help. taking the battery out doesn't help.in fact, the date on the phone reset to December 31, 2004.
Just installed this last night. worked well. Actually woke me up 10 min earlier than alarm time. Guess it works. what sold me on it, besides free, is that it has a airplane mode. I dont know about others, but when i sleep, i sleep. i dont wake up at a drop of a hat when (and if) i hear the phone go off. (plus it saves on battery)
