Am I missing something or is there not a character counter for when you are composing text messages on the standard Desire text message app? If there isn't one - is there a recommended alternative solution?
The Droid is my first smartphone. Before it I was texting with the dialpad, and the phone would count down how many letters I have left (out of 160, the text msg length). Using the "messaging" icon on the Droid it never says when I'm approaching the text message limit. So is this "messaging" icon really like an instant messenger? It's not GTalk, that's another icon. If I send a 250 character txt message through the "messaging" app, does it get broken into 2 messages for the receiver?
I was wondering if it is possible that when I swipe to clear a notification (in particular messages, I used GO SMS for text messages and Whatsapp) that it counts as a 'read' message. At the moment it just removes it from the notification bar although the message is still unread.
I hope I made clear what I am trying to get across. Is what I am looking for even possible?
I'm about to purchase an Eris, and I'm unsure whether I should order the visual voicemail ($3 per month), or is there a good app available. (I don't know why there isn't a website where I can see all the apps available, why must you do it from your handset only?). And either way, does the notification count as a text message? I don't text much, but I might need to buy a higher level text plan if so.
I kept getting this pop up screen whenever I received message. The pop up screen is so big that my message will be displayed and anyone can read it. I have searched everywhere on the setting to turn this off, I also called the support and they cannot help me. The pop up screen has the sender phone number, the message, a sunglass and hello message. At the bottom, it has reply, dismiss or replay with a busy message. I am using nexus 1. It is very irritating to just keep getting the poop up without any privacy.
This is the only thing I miss from my Blackberry. I know I can add a message icon on the homeccreen but I want to have 1 inbox on my homescreen that displays an unread message count and the inbox includes:
-all missed calls
Is there an app for this? or a way to do it i'm missing? search resulted in unadressed topics.
I'm working on an Android app that will send an automated response every time a text message is received. I looked around a bit on android's development site but haven't had anything that points me in the right direction. Does anyone have any ideas on where I should start with this or have any good links that might help? I am a total beginner with developing Android apps so please bear with me if I'm a little slow with this.
In my messages it says i have a multimedia message from S@(the lower loop on the s is joined to the middle section but dont know what font it is) and when i go into it there isnt anything there but it looks like it is saved to my sim. once in the message it says it is from triangle symbol@. What is this?
I keep getting the message after every text I send saying SMS received. Tracking has been reset. Not only do I get this message but so do the recipients of my messages. This has only started since I upgraded to Kitkat. I've tried googling it and even spent an hour on the phone with O2 but not had any luck. How I can stop it on my Galaxy S4.
I have just started using using handcent SMS which i love. Couple of things i am not sure of though. How do i dasable the standard HTC app as i seem to get a notification on both. Also i have moved the handcent app to the home screen but it does not display a numerical display of a received text message (on the app icon) which i liked on the standard app. Is there a way to get it to do this?
I've seen a few threads on this but they haven't been answered.When I install Handcent, the delivery confirmations will not show up (little green check marks) and they also stop showing up in my regular messages. I have to uninstall Hendcent for the delivery report option to show up again.My question is how do I set it up so that I can see the little green check mark confirmations in Handcent?
I have noticed that once I have sent a text I am not getting any tone to let me know that the text has been delivered which is rather annoying as I have to keep on long pressing the text I have sent to "view report". I am getting the Notification tone Hours later after the text has got to the person I sent it to. On all my other phones (I am on 3 Mobile) the tone is straight away once the text gets to the other person.
I was wondering if someone could tell me how do i forward a text message i received on my incredible to someone else. For some reason i cant for the life of me figure out how to do it. I would appreciate any help or info on how to do it.
I have the Motorola Razor Maxx on the Verizon network. Recently have received text messages I could not download. doesn't state why just "message size: 30KB" ask if I want to download or reject. When I try to download I get the same message "failed to download" is there a setting to change file sizes allowed or something else I'm missing.
I thought I would put one of the available pedometer apps on my Incredible, thinking it shouldn't be too hard to find one as handy as what my old Sony Walkman phone shipped with (it ran when the screen was off, tracking my whole week's walking). Needless to say, I am disappointed that HTC does not support this functionality, causing any installed pedometer apps to quit counting steps as soon as the phone sleeps. With the supercharged battery which I plan on buying, I wouldn't be sweating so much the power consumption, and it's really disappointing to be left without the choice to let programs of my choice run. Will there be a fix for this problem anytime soon? Anyone happen to know, of if there's something else I can do about it?
I am using the stock messaging program on my new Droid2. When I receive a picture message and I click on the picture to enlarge it. It only stays big for a few seconds and then minimizes again. How do I keep it large? Also, How do I save the pictures? I can't seem to save the pictures anywhere.
I would like the phone to alert me approx every 5 minutes that there is an unread text. My phone alerts that I have a new text but I also want it to alert me again if I don't hear the first alert. Is there a way to do this?
I went to text someone today, and for what ever reason, the message failed to send, and I received the "Message not sent" notification. I tried again, and the message was sent. Now every time I send, or receive a message that notification pops up. "Message not sent - Select to review the message and try again" and when I open the error message, it triggers another to appear. "Undelivered message - Unable to Deliver this message" even though all the txts have been confirmed to go through. This is driving me crazy, any one have any thoughts? It even gives me the message when I open an old text that I have already read.
