Android :: How To Enable / Disable GPRS / EDGE Data Connection?

Apr 16, 2009

The service providers in my country are charging for the MBs I downloaded in my GPRS/EDGE connection. So, whenever I want to disable the GPRS, I just change my default APN to something wrong and then correct it when I want to enable it again. I couldn't find another way to enable/disable. I think,Android team assumed that only 3G users with a good data plan only would use this phone. Anyway, I just want to develop an application which can do that automatically for me. However; I couldn't find how to change the APN settings in the docs. but I couldn't find how to use it. Could you please help me? Any alternative ways and/or suggestions are welcome.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Way To Disable GPRS Connection

Apr 8, 2010

Have finally received my X10 and must say am very impressed with it on the whole.Am finding it fast and responsive but do get the occassional need to tap the selection again and have also experienced the 'a' issue with the keyboard.

Have got a few questions which hopefully you guys can help with as Android is all new to me having come from Windows Mobile:

*Is there a way to disable the GPRS connection as it seems to be continuously connected or is this normal with Android?

*Do you guys know of a GPRS data app that can monitor my internet usage?

*Am going to purchase 'Betterkeyboard' from the Marketplace but if I was to factory reset the handset would I be able to download the app without paying again.

still scratching the surface of Android and the X10 so haven't come across the common complaints yet e.g. low sound both incall and ring tone...

Android : O2 GPRS - EDGE - G3 And H

Jun 14, 2010

I have recently upgraded to the HTC DESIRE on o2, So far all I have seen is the "G" = GPRS, so far I have not seen 3G, E, or the HDPSA or what ever it is :-). Does o2 support anything else but "G" on this handset etc etc, or is my phone faulty ? I live in the UK and so far today I cant even use my internet - O2 have said there are having issues with 3G but didnt say where in the UK or maybe this is Nation Wide ?

Android :: How To Get Connectivity On Gprs / Edge?

Jun 29, 2010

I am currently in China and therefor run a VPN on my PC to connect to the outside world, I would also like to run the same VPN (PPTP) on my android. I can connect via VPN if I am using WiFi but when I try to connect over GPRS/Edge I can't get any connectivity. All web pages load with the standard "web page not available" and apps, eg. the market place, won't connect either. I would have thought that if it was a carrier issue (CMCC) I wouldn't be able to connect to the VPN in the first place. So is this a Android issue, a setup issue or a carrier issue? And can you actuality run a VPN over GPRS om Android?

Android :: Want To Turn On Gprs / Edge Via Sms

Dec 16, 2009

Is there any app or some thing like that, that I could use it to turn on mobile Internet 2G (EDGE/GPRS) or 3G (UMTS/HSDPA).

HTC Eris :: Enable Or Disable JIT On ROM?

Jul 30, 2010

For those of you looking to either Enable JIT or Disable JIT on a ROM that has JIT built in (or you've manually flashed it) and decided you wanted to remove it. I had a little trouble searching so I figured I'd post it with a simple logical subject line for future searching.

In the /System Directory you need to fine the file called:
build.prop
then edit the line:
dalvik.vm.execution-mode=int:jit
to say:
dalvik.vm.execution-mode=int:fast
and revsere it to enable it back (fast to jit)

You can do this a few ways.
1. Use a file explorer on your phone (such as ES File Explorer) or Root Explorer find the direcotry /system make sure the drive is R/W (read/write). Open the file, build.prop, then scroll down to the bottom of the file and it should be within the bottom 5 lines and do as stated above.

2. Use adb commands, connect phone via USB.
adb remount
abd pull /system/build.prop build.prop
On your PC find this in your c:"androidsdkdirecotryhere"
ools and edit with your favorite text editor.
then save the file, and go back to your cmd window and type
adb remount
abd pull /system/build.prop build.prop

HTC Incredible :: Enable / Disable Buttons

Jun 21, 2010

I got my Incredible almost two weeks ago and haven't modified it in any way other than switching to LauncherPro instead of Sense. I've seen these buttons (highlighted in red in the screenshots) in various places; Used for selection of a single item or as "enabled" or "disabled", they just don't look right. Especially in Astrid, they don't look like they do in the screenshots from the market. what are these buttons called (they're not radio buttons or checkboxes, so I'm assuming they have a name)? Does this happen to anyone else?

Android :: Enable/Disable Networking In Emulator

Sep 22, 2009

According to the emulator docs, you should be able to enable/disable networking with the F8 key. I doesn't work for me and I'm trying to determine why.

I'm developing on OSX Leopard. I've also tried in a virtual Windows instance (Windows 2008 server running in Parallels). No luck in either case.

I've tried the obvious stuff like fn + F8, etc.

Should there be any sort of visual cue that networking has gone online or offline when F8 is pressed?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Enable / Disable APN Settings

I enabled APN in the settings. But, I want to be able to enable/disable my APN so I can be sure that I'm not getting charged for using the Internet when I'm not. On the top of my screen I see an E with 2 arrows, one pointing up and one pointing down, when I turn my WiFi on this disappears and is replaced by a WiFi icon, and I don't get charged for browsing. But I want to be able to turn APN on and off, I can't uncheck the option for APN which I chose, and the application I downloaded does not work. The icon remains there when I'm not connected to a router even if APN is disabled.

Nexus :: Any Data Enable / Disable Widget For Froyo?

Jun 5, 2010

As Nexus One is the only model which has already "partly" updated to Froyo,Before Froyo, if I wanna enable/disable mobile data usage, I used a passive way, changing the APN server setting, to fool the system so it couldn't connect.In Froyo, there is a new option under Setings -> Wireless & Network Settings -> Mobile Networks called Data enabled/disabled, which is a much direct approach than changing the APN.But up to today, I've yet to see a widget which targets at this option. Currently I hv made a 3G shortcut to that setting page on to my home screen. Really hope there will be a toggle widget instead!So how do u guys enable/disable data usage at the moment without a handy widget on Froyo?

Android :: Enable / Disable PatternLock Screen From Code

Feb 3, 2010

I try to find a way to disable the PatternLock screen temporary. I don't want the lock to be disabled completely, but the user should not need to re-enter his pattern all the time.

My idea is to write a service which disables the pattern after some user activity and re-enables it after a while. (and even more)

There are apps on the market that do something like that (i.e. AutoLock or TogglePattern), so there must be a solution ;)

I know that I can prevent a lock completely by using:
getWindow().addFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_KEEP_SCREEN_ON)
or
KeyguardLock.disableKeyguard()

But that is not what I'm after.

I saw the class "com.android.internal.widget.LockPatternUtils" in the android sources which is used by the settings activity, but this class is not (at least as far as I know) accessible for a "normal" application.

Do you have an advice?

2- enable/disable sound per app

For #1, it looks like I have to go Setting>App Manager>All>Uncheck 'show notifications'. But, apparently that will disable everything...ie, no graphic/text or sound. I've tried lock screen and notification apps without luck so far......
