Android :: Setting Default Email App - And Disabling The Others

Nov 25, 2010

I have 3 email applications on my GarminAsus A50:

> Default email client
> Gmail
> K9 email client

All three have been setup with email accounts.

Is there a way to set K9 as my preferred email app? Because everytime I receive an email, I get three sets of notifications (one from each app)

For the moment I've disabled the email notifications from Gmail and the default mail, but they still run in the background checking for messages which is really just a waste of CPU power and battery life.

Anything to keep them from running at all?

Motorola Milestone :: Get 2 Days Of Battery Life Disabling Backgr Data - But With Push Email On

May 9, 2010

I have a Milestone running Android 2.1

Initially, battery life was terrible, so bad I was considering returning the phone: with only K-9 email imap idle push email on in the background, and auto-sync off, I could get barely 7-8 hours of battery life, whereas with the Nokia e71 and Iphone 3gs I would get at least a day and a half, with comparable usage (push email, ca. 20 emails a day, 30 minutes of web browsing and 20 minutes of calls a day).

I then disabled background data, leaving the k-9 push email on, and now I get 2 days of battery life!

This is great, of course, but it also raises another question: what on Earth was going on in the background that was draining the battery? Thoughts?

Specifically, if you're interested in replicating my settings: I used 'any cut' to create a shortcut on the home screen to: settings -> account & sync. Once I untick 'background data', I can still use k-9 email, the browser, maps, etc, i.e. data-on-demand, if you will.

If I want to access the market, I enable backgr data again. If I want to sync contacts and calendar, I enable 'account sync' from the power control widget (which enables background data, too), and then, once done, I disable background data and account sync.

In k-9: menu -> folder list -> account -> settings -> background sync -> always. This way imap idle push works even when background data is off.

I then have a remember the milk widget (but Astrid is a valid free alternative) with manual sync, and a pure calendar widget with, again, auto sync off.

This is the best battery life I have ever had from a smartphone! But I am also curious to understand what was using data in the background and draining the battery so much... Having account sync off is a deal breaker for some, but for me it's ok: I don't update calendar and contacts every second, so the trouble of pressing a couple of buttons every now and then is well worth the extended battery life.

Android :: Default Calendar Setting

Sep 4, 2009

I am quite irritated by the feature in the calendar, that places any new events by default in My Calendar, that is NOT synced with Google cal. Is there a way to change this default setting, to have it choose my Google Cal instead? I have not been able to find any such setting, but reasonably there should be one somewhere (maybe accessible through command line instead of gui)?

Android :: Default Launcher Setting Not Sticking

Sep 13, 2010

I'm using Launcher Pro and just yesterday I started having the issue where if you long-press Home and switch apps, you remove your default launch choice and then need to reselect it the next time you short-press on Home. It remembers the setting until I again long-press and use the app switcher.My question: how do I get this to stick? What 'app' is used to do the app switch by default, and is there anything else I could use to do this? I would hate to be stuck with this permanently, and I'm not thinking it is LauncherPro's fault. What other apps could conflict and cause this behavior?

Android :: Setting Default Contact Card

Jun 5, 2010

I can't seem to set my default contact card in Android. When I open the contacts app (People) there is an entry for my Facebook account that says "My Contact Card" but I don't really use Facebook. All my info is in an entry in Google contacts. How can I change the default contact card?Also, this might be related. When I text with my girlfriend her picture shows up but mine does not. All contact entries for me have my picture so I'm wondering if it has to do with my default contact card.

Android :: Setting Dolphin As Default For Market Search?

Dec 19, 2009

Since I've set Dolphin as my default browser, when I click on a link to search for an app in the market I get a not found error. For instance, there is a link in Documents to Go (the paid key file) that is supposed to take you to the market to download the actual Documents to Go apps when I click on that link it opens the Dolphin browser and then there is a not found error. Before I set Dolphin as the default those types of links would open the market place to the application.

HTC Desire :: SMS App Default Setting

Jul 10, 2010

Out of curiosity could anyone with a Desire let me know if their SMS app settings are the same as mine Unbranded Desire on the Orange network.In 'Manage Applications' if I look at the stock HTC SMS app (Messages) the 'Launch by default' section is greyed out and says 'No defaults set'.Same thing when I look at the 'Application info' for Handcent.The problem this is causing me is that I can't set a 'default' SMS app in the GOTO lock screen app. A pop up should launch in the GOTO app asking me to set a default but it doesn't and so I can only use the stock SMS app with the GOTO lockscreen.Spoke to the developer about it and he thinks it's an issue specific to the Desire so out of curiosity I'm keen to know if other Desires have the same default settings as mine mentioned above.

General :: Setting System Root As RW Default

Aug 13, 2012

I've mapped my android phone as a network drive using Samba and changed the smb.conf file to show the System Root directory as well. However, system root is default set as R/O so to mange files USING my computer I need to change the permission to R/W using a file manager (such as root explorer). This is annoying, as I have to keep doing this in order to write to certail directories.

I would like the / directory (root) to be mounted as R/W as default so that I can quickly edit files on my PC without having to constantly change it to R/O. I want something that will automatically mount my phone's root dir into rw upon boot, without custom apps/having to manually mount as rw everytime it reboots.

Android :: Setting Up Customers Comcast Email

Feb 19, 2010

I have a customer that needs to get their comcast email setup on Motorola Droid. This seems to be an issue. First off let me give you the settings I am using.
Incoming:

1.Customer username - does not have @comcast behind it

2.their password

3. port 110

4. mail.comcast.net

5. Security type None

Outgoing

1.smtp.comcast.net

2.587 port

3.security None


I have also tried other random settings.The best I have gotten this to work is that it receives one email at a time. A couple of minutes later you click refrest and even that message is gone.I have even tried m.comcast.net for the customer and that website shows you have 2 new mail. But after you click on it once and back out there is no way to see the messages again.

Motorola Droid X :: Dialer And Setting Default Number

Nov 12, 2010

Lots of my contacts - especially my "favorite" contacts - have multiple phone #'s, which is pretty typical. So it's a nice feature in the dialer that lets you select a specific number - home, office, mobile, etc., to dial every time you pull up the favorites tab within the dialer screen. I by mistake checked "use as default number" for one particular contact, but now I want to deactivate that selection and have no default number for that particular contact.

I know how to switch the default number from one to another; is there a way to deactivate the default number and just have the phone ask me which number to dial, e.g. home, office, mobile, etc.? I've been trying to tinker with everything I can to no avail, and I've also been shut out trying to answer this question online. Only thing I haven't done is call Verizon.

Motorola Droid :: Setting / App To Make Dial Pad By Default?

Jun 25, 2010

Is there a setting, app, etc. that will make the "dial pad" show by default when I make a phone call?

Basically, there are few numbers I dial that use an automated system and I'm required to press certain numbers to continue and I grow tired of selecting the number pad myself.

It's not as important on incoming calls, but would be nice there as well I guess.
