How to remove the display of text messages on the unlock screen. When I receive a new message all I want is to see the icon up in the notification area and the green blinking light. I don't want the message displayed at all on my unlock screen. So does anyone know if there is a setting or a hack that can be done to do this?
When I get a text message Ive got my phone set to turn the screen on. I have a stand for my phone that props it up and points it at me in my office. Is there a way to get it to display the notification horizontally on the screen rather than in the standard vertical position on the lock screen?
I have recently got my samsung galaxy android phone. Today i downloaded some applications like power saver, no lock, etc. suddenly it started blinking system process information at right top of the screen. I have uninstalled all downloaded applications but system information keeps on blinking. Sometime it is occupying entire right side portion and i am unable to see screen content. System process information like "3.56/5.67/3.84 system_server akmd2 android.process.core" is displaying in low size text. It seems as it is showing information for debug purposes.
I have stopped all services, all application, etc. forcefully even then it keeps on displaying. Can anyone help me how to disable showing such information ?
Hello there I have a problem regarding the new HTC Magic I purchased : in my text display where I read the conversations between me and my contacts... it has all of the messages I sent in 1 group together, and all of the messages my contacts have sent together. How do I change this to display the order in which they were sent and received? For example right now it is
ME : blahblahblah ME : blahblahblah ME : blahblahblah
You : blahblahblah You : blahblahblah You : blahblahblah
I would like to know how to get a pre-saved image from the gallery and then display it onto the screen. Any tutorials/helpful links and info would be appreciated. If there is anything you would like me to explain more, please ask.
I am writing a app for which i need to display the Time elapsed when user presses a button in UI screen . So please guide me in writing the code in Android. I need to display the time in seconds, mins and hours.
I downloaded SMS Popup and Missed Call because I want to use the LED notifier to change colors and display text messages, but even after selecting those options, it still doesnt work. Has anyone figured this out? Or is there a better app that works?
I'm looking for a text widget that can access a text file that is located on my phone or dropbox and display the contents of the file. It should always update itself as soon as there is a change in the text file. Does an app like this exist and where can I find it?
I am just looking for opinions, which phone do you think has the better screen (display), the nexus one or the Droid? I guess 2 things to consider are 1. The Droid is 480 x 854 while the nexus one is only 480 x 800 and 2. The nexus one has an AMOLED display. Now I am not the most tech savvy person so I am not 100% sure what these mean lol all I know is that from what ive heard, #1 goes to the Droid and #2 goes to the nexus. So idk, is it really just a matter of opinion? I own a nexus one and it has a great screen but from what I've seen from the Droid, the droids screen looked a tad better. However that could be due to my limited experience and if I had the Droid for a while, my opinion might change.
Yesterday my Droid 2 got automatically updated to 2.3.20.A955. It worked fine yesterday. I turned it off when I went to bed and now this morning after turning it on, it appears to be functioning except the only screen display I get is the white M (Motorola logo) that normally appears when starting up. I have tried to turn the phone off and on several times, although with no display it's hard to even know if it's happening. So far, nothing.
Edit to add: Well, I took the battery out and put it back in, now it's working. I should have tried it earlier but I didn't. I'll leave the thread up just so people know there is an issue.
One thing i absolutely HATE about my Droid INC is the wallpaper is the same for all screens.Can the X display a different wallpaper for each home screen? If not do you know of any Android VZW phones that will?
Some questions regarding locked screen. 1) How do you get the locked screen to show for more than 5 seconds? 2) Where is the clock that is on the box? 3) Is there a way to be able to use the "droid" theme that is shown when you power the phone up?
The gap between the screen and housing, particularly at the bottom, seems to be pretty wide on my phone. i notice at night that light shines through that gap. Can't tell if the gap has gotten any wider. Just wondering if anyone else notices something similar. Seems like a great place for dust to enter the screen. Especially if light can come through there. Doesn't mean it's not sealed, but obviously it's not a super tight fit.
I'm having a problem with my Driod Eris. It's moving on its own, if I unlock the screen it starts to move to the left and stays there. I try to scroll over it moves back I press the home button and it does the same thing. I've tried powering down taking the battery put nothing seem to work.
I dropped my Droid today about a foot onto a carpeted floor and upon picking it up, the screen no longer displays anything, but does respond to swiping to unlock, etc. Can someone post a picture of the Recovery menu(s) for factory data reset and wipe cache? would this even help, or maybe an SBF flash?
Well, I've been noticing a few more problems with my eris as of late (if you want to know the others look at my post history)I've been unable to get past the lock screen to display sometimes. I just got off the phone with a friend, it was a long call as the phone/battery had heated up a bit. Now, everything with the phone seemed to be okay, I went and pulled up the HTC battery widget and was around 34C. I've seen it get this high before and had no problems. Now, I locked the phone and a few minutes later I tried to unlock it. The unlock screen would display but the touch screen wouldn't not receive any of my input. The Menu button did not work either. I could push the end button time and again and the display wound turn on and off, but no touch input ever worked. I just had to do a battery pull to get into my phone.
I've also been noticing inside TaskPanel that the amount of available memory steadily declines even if no programs are running. I have mostly sense programs ignored and I've included timerriffic and beautiful widgets as they are always running and need to be so they will function. (beautiful widgets I just purchased yesterday and I've had this problem for a week or two) If I do successfully get past the lock screen the phone will be extremely slow and TaskPanel will report something like 20 megs of available memory, with no applications running. If I restart the phone I'm usually fine. I think it is happening around the 13-14 hour mark of my phone being turned on.
I'm assuming something is hogging up my phone and I just can't tell what it is. I don't have very many 3rd party applications installed. They are closed immediately after I'm done with them except for beautiful widgets and timerriffic. I've had timerrific since the 2nd day I've owned my Eris and it's never been a problem (not to say an update didn't hose it)Anyone have similar problems? Anyone think of anything that could be causing this? [side note: I did notice a few weeks back my exchange calendar was freaking out and draining my battery, but deleting and resetting up my exchange email fixed that and it doesn't seem to be a problem now]
I have e mail set up on my Droid. I used to get a green flashing light when a new message would arrive. Somehow I had the sound alert set to silent. My Handsent would receive a sound as well (it is still set) and a flashing pink light appears on my phone. Now the green light does not come on. can I set it to and if so....how do I do it?
I have a stock droid x. When i press the power button to lock my screen and put it to sleep when im done using my phone sometimes i get a constantly blinking blue led like im receiving an incoming call. This only happens when the phone is locked or on standby. A simple phone rest fixes this. I used a task killer and killed one app at a time thinking mabey one of my apps is causing this problem but even after killing all apps it still blinks. Any one else have or had this issue ? Any fix ideas. I have did a simple turn off the phone and it fixes it temporarily. I have also did a battery pull. Id hate to do a master reset.
Ive noticed when I put the Droid to my ear to make a phone call... the screen goes black... then it takes a couple seconds when i pull it away for the screen to re-appear.... How do I stop that from happening?
