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?

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).

Android :: Shortcut - Disable And Enable DATA 2g 3g

Jun 28, 2010

I want, and I have for a while been willing to, disable and enable DATA (2g, 3g, whatever) with a long press of the search button. And I mean only long-pressing it, NOT opening an app with it and disable it from the app (doesn't make any sense, otherwise one would press the HOME button and disable it from a widget there).

Android :: Enable/Disable Auto Sync And Background Data

Apr 20, 2009

I want to develop an application that disable the Background Data (new feature in Android 1.5) and Auto Sync and then enable GPRS/EDGE connection and vice versa.

I figured out how to enable/disable GPRS/EDGE by changing the APN settings. (weird solution. However; Android developers couldn't think a user may want to disable GPRS/EDGE) But, I couldn't find a way to enable/disable Auto Sync and Background data.

I investigated the Android code and as I understood, the Sync operation is an intend. So, I wanted to reach with putExtra to the intend and trigger the enabling/disabling. But; I couldn't find the correct keyword.

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?

I am unable to use Gtalk, gmail, Maps, Market, Email (all pre installed) using GPRS/EDGE (Vodafone Live) on my Milestone. But All of these works with Wi-Fi connection. I installed Meeboo Messanger, this is also not working with GPRS/EDGE.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini/Pro :: Cannot Sync Via Cellular Data (3G / Edge)

Oct 20, 2010

Got my x10 mini pro this week and had to swallow three times as I'd not been exposed to android and expected a SE experience. I got the google sync to work without a problem, internet and facebook updates feeding into the timecape - great. I managed to upload my old phone's contacts onto my newly creates SE account on this website, great. Then on the x10 mini pro, I set up the sync using standard SE button, entered my details of this website, which created a default entry trying to get to sync.sonyericsson.com which I cannot change.

When I try to synchronize, (Internet connection def working), this immediately fails, does not even seem to try to connect to the sync server. Error message appears in the status bar: Could not synchronize: Sony Ericsson (which is the name of the default sync entry). I tried creating a sync entry using the SE portal, finding out the secret username/password. That got exactly the same instant response apparently not even trying.

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?

Android :: Enable / Disable Auto Brightness Mode From API?

From what I read until now there is a SCREEN_BRIGHTNESS_MODE in Settings.System but only for API level 8 or higher and also not recommended to mess wit it. But currently my phone has Android 2.1 (API 7) and there are widgets that can control this setting (enable/disable auto brightness and set the level). How is this done?

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?

HTC Desire :: Calls Going Straight To Voicemail / Not Sure About GPRS Data Usage

Jul 27, 2010

There have been numerous times when people have tried to phone me and it's gone straight to voicemail. I know when using GPRS you can't use voice and data at the same time but I can't figure out what's using the data stream. I only have the weather application which updates every 3 hours but even when it's not due an update this issue has occurred. Can anyone suggest how to figure out what's using data? The only fix I can think of is to turn off Internet while in a GPRS area assuming the problem is a clash of data / voice.
