Previously my Xperia used to turn in by itself while charging i figured it out as an Intelligent Charging Circuit system,then i updated my phone and it stopped turning on while charging, even after 2.1 it is not resolved.although it stops charging when its powered on and fully charged but it dont when its off it neither stops charging nor turns on by itself, is it a problem if it is how can i resolve it.
Has anyone had any luck with aftermarket power supply's. I'd like a car/ac charger or a stand alone power pack. I usually use my DEXIM. but it does not work with the Behold 2. I've tried a car charger/battery unit by Wireless Gear that said it was compatible with all Samsung phones, it came with 5 power tips and a USB outlet that still would not work, even using the OEM USB cable. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I will go with OEM Samsung if necessary, but there selection is limited.
I have a rooted Galaxy S3 with Android 4.1.2, and for some strange reason they've changed the screenshot combination away from the Power+VolDown that other Androids use to Power+Home which can't realistically be pressed one-handed. How can I change it back to Power+VolDown?
At first when I used my phone. I would click on Internet, Browse to a web page, and if left my phone alone for a few minutes it would go to power save mode, and I would have to unlock the screen to keep browsing on the same internet page I was on. Now when it powers down, and I go back to it, it always defaults to my home page, and I have to browse back to the page I was just one. I have been looking for a setting to undo this, as its driving me crazy, but I haven't been able to find a way to change this.
I am browsing a lot on my android phone.Some times I see it gets restarted automatically in idle state. I saw the log and appears android.intent.action.REBOOT is causing the reset. But it seems only system can send this intent and I not able to figure out why system sending this intent. Could some one please help me to find out in which all possibilities system sends reboot intent. You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Android Developers" group.

I have been messing around with some ROMs on my Droid1, every time I flash a new rom it auto restores my apps. It hasn't done this at all until today. I have tried disabling it in my settings but it still doesn't stop. Also when I go into the downloads page in the market to cancel them, I can some of them but when I try to cancel the others if causes the market to force close. I would like to know if there is anyway to stop google from auto downloading them when I sign in? When I turned off the backup it said it would delete the info from googles servers, but it obviously has not lol because I have tried flashing the rom over again since then. I know most people would like this to happen, but I want a clean install.
At first I thought that I had bought an application by accident an just requested for the refund. Everything was fine but then I kept getting emails thanking me for purchasing apps which I would immediately request for refund. I already did a hard reset on my phone and I was wondering if I had to cancel my email and my card or if there's anything else I can do.
I am trying to determine if an Android user has had a close proximity to a list of predetermined locations. I'd like to do this with the least amount of drain on the phone's battery. The two mechanisms I see for accomplishing this are proximity alerts and requesting location updates. What are the pros and cons of the two methods? Will one have less affect on the battery than the other? In either case I would guess the specific location manager used would have some affect power usage (existing Stack Overflow answer).
my android phone's power button stopped working a few weeks ago. It wasn't a big problem, but a few days ago, the battery died. Now it is turned off and I can't turn it on. When I put it in charge, it just shows the charging screen. The phone is a Winmax W8000 (Winmax is Bangladeshi company. I'm from Bangladesh). It runs on Jellybean (4.1). It wasn't rooted. I tried to get into Download mode, but pressing the volume buttons and plugging in the charger doesn't work.
Im looking for a Android powered GSM phone that will automatically turn itself back on if the battery is dead and power is reconnected.
I want to stash this in my vintage automobile and use tracking software to locate the vehicle in the unfortunate event its stolen. The only issue I need to solve is if the battery dies and the phone turns off how to turn it back on automatically. I plan to put the device in the door panels so access will be difficult.
If I connect to my home WiFi, it works well. I'll go out of the house and come back a few hours later and the phone does not automatically connect to my home WiFi. If I go to settings, I can see it detects my home WiFi, but says "Connection unsuccessful, select to try again." When I select it, it connects and works fine. My problem is, I don't think I should have to physically select my WiFi network everytime I come home. Shouldn't it see it and connect automatically? What am I dong wrong? Do I have a setting turned on/off that should be different?
Maybe I am misunderstanding something but I believe Android is supposed to automatically kill "unused" tasks after a while. Is that correct? I own a Galaxy S and I see that I still have in the running tasks list some apps that I haven't used for more than 18 hours. And these taks do not make any kind of auto sync, they communicate with the network only when used actively. Am I misunderstanding something?
Set it up last night and went through the basic set up screens that pop up automaticall. I set up the email account I use all the time but also set up a GMAIL account as I had read that Android really likes to sync with GMAIL. Once these were done I then set up a couple of things on the home screens and then thought right, time to get some apps. Clicked on the Market icon, selcted a couple of things to download, like google voice control app, clicked ok. Download seemed to start but withing 10 seconds in the notification bar I got an error saying download unsuccessful please try later.
Now basically all I have done is set up the very basics on a brand new phone, created a brand new GMAIL account, just with username and password, and thats it. I have also tried a full factory reset of the phone and starting over, but still no good. Is there something else I need to do, that the phone isn't prompting me to do or is there something wrong somewhere.

Im a new desire user. Sorry I have a noob question. How do i power off the desire? I pressed the power button and it go into the sleep mode, I hold the power button for quite some time and nothing happens? how do i tell whether is it sleep mode or power off?
How do I power the phone off? Is there a manual somewhere out there? Mine only came with a book called 'Tips, Hints and Shortcuts.' I have a mac... is there anyway to sync this to my computer? Also how do I put files onto the phone... I have mounted the phone onto computer and can see it but I don't know where to put the files. When using the phone, can you rename folders? How do you manage these folders? Also is there a way to remove all the crap software that comes loaded.... amazonmp3, no thanks!.... Peep, no thanks!.... I read about "rooting" but this seems complicated, is there maybe an application that does it for you?
I was halfway through the 2.1 update & it came up with an error saying that the update had failed. I now can't turn on my phone. At first I thought it might be a flat battery issue (even though my battery was at 100% before starting the update). After having the mains charger plugged in for over an hour, there was no activity on the LED. When I try to power on the phone, it vibrates but nothing.
When I plug the phone into the PC USB lead, the green light comes on for about 10 seconds, then goes off for a couple of seconds. Again, if I try to power on the phone, it vibrates but nothing else. While I have the phone plugged in via USB, the PC Companion tries to recognize the phone, it does but then says it's not connected as if it's cycling the power just long enough to connect then disconnect. I've also tried all of the above without the SIM card and SD Card in.
Quicker way to power off my phone. I think that its slowly driving me nuts. Long press on power button ... do you want to power off... I did look at the Galaxy wiki and there was a code to put in the dialer to do this. It doesn't seem to be working with Galaxo.
