Android : Way To Get Setting Profiles To Work Correctly?
Aug 16, 2010
I want to keep the phone from ringing during my meal times, so I have set a profile called "Meal." I have it set to Silent mode and have turned media volume to zero (I use an MP3 song for my ring, so I figured doing both would be safer). I have set the rule to activate "Meal" from 18:00 to 19:00. I set this up over the weekend, but I got a call tonight (and it rang) at about 6:50 (18:50). Am I missing something in my settings? I have the full version, not the trial.
Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I have a profile for "in dock" to turn on GPS and bluetooth. Last night it didn't shut off and this am - DEAD battery. I've noticed sometimes in the dock it doesn't turn those features on either - but sometimes it does work?
There's something I'm not getting about this app, so let me explain what I'd like to do:
From 8 to 8:30a.m., when I'm on my way to work, I want it to turn off wi-fi and turn the phone ringer to full volume. I got that one figured out.
At 8:30, I'd like the phone ringer to go back to normal and wi-fi to come on. Do I need to set up a timed profile for that, or does it automatically happen when 8:30 comes?
Then from 5 to 5:30pm, I want the same thing to happen as I drive home. I'm guessing I can use the same "action" as above, and set the timer for 5-5:30pm.
When I get home, I'd like wi-fi to be on and the ringer to be normal. Do I have to set up a special profile for that, too?
Then I'm wondering about "locations" and this may be a stupid question: let's say I get home early, at 5:15. Is it possible to have a profile set up that says, "when you sense our home wi-fi network, turn the wi-fi on and override the timed 5-5:30 rule above?" Or does the wi-fi need to be ALREADY on to sense our home wi-fi network channel?
So I have the full version. I looked around and didn't see an answer. First off, I can't find a contact for the dev, or a FAQ on how to use it. I have had it for a few months and everything is great, but now when I am on the phone in the car on the dock and on my BT, I unclip the phone and it should change to my profile that still has the BT enabled. For some reason, my call screen is still blue (BT), but the handset engages and the bluetooth cuts out.
where I work, my signal is pretty bad. So I typically turn off Bluetooth, GPS, etc to extend my battery any little I can. So I'd like to get an app that sets up profiles for work so that between 7am-3pm, those settings turn off an than turn back on after 3. I think CM has a feature like this built in but I'm on my sgs3, TW. SCH-I535
Youtube app has never worked correctly and now doesn't work at all Since I've had the droid x the youtube app had given myself and others the log in problems where you try to log in and it will log you in"firstname.lastname@example.org" how and why does it even do this? The error "There is a problem with network response" I've had since the beginning aswell only now force closes on it self.
I have a ListView, which has a TextView and a RadioGroup with 4 RadioButtons as Children in each row. Now i can select a RadioButton in each row. But if i scroll the ListView, my Selection is gone or it does not show correctly. For example, i choose the RadioButton A in the first row, if i scroll through the ListView and then go back to the first row again, either none of the RadioButtons in the RadioGroup is checked or RadioButton C is checked instead of A.How can i fix this Problem? I have tried 7 days already, but still i find no solution.
I have a ListView, which contains an EditText in each of it's row. I also have an Array.The length of the Array==the Nr of the rows in the ListView. I want to store the user input (the text in the EditText) to the Arrray. E.g, if i type some text in the EditText in the first row of the ListView, i want the text to be stored in Array. But how can i detect to which row the EditText belongs to? I can detect the possition of the row if the row contains a RadioGroup, but not a EditText. What if i first type some text in the EditText and sometime later i want to update mein Input? How can i update it?
Has anyone noticed that when you do a search for a specific app it will say "X amount" results for "(whatever you searched for)" sometimes it wont load the number of apps it found for what I searched for. I have to perform another search for something else and try it again before it will display the apps results.
I am trying to get a profile setup for my wifi but that doesnt seems to work very correctly
Here is what i did
Cell near<scanned cells near my house> ---> wifi set on Wifi near<my SSId> <-- wifi set off Now i did this thinking if in my area using scanned cells plus in range of my wifi----> it should turn on
And if the above criteria doesnt match then it should go off
Please advise if i am doing it wrong
I was also thinking when i reach back home phone should say welcome home or something ( was trying just for fun) but that doesnt work properly either i was using it with my wifi profile but the it keeps on reading the message few times i was thinking everytime phone changes the cell it reads the message to me.
I've just rooted and Villian 2.1ified my Orange Hero.Now I swear there was an easy way to link contacts to their fb profiles, but now I can only find a way to manually do it one contact at a time. With alot of contacts, this could take somewhere between three to four years.
Since upgrading to FroYo, the stock youtube app doesn't work correctly. Most of the time I can't hear any sound at all no matter what setting the media volume is set to. The times I can hear sound it isn't audible and very very quiet. Does anyone else have this problem?
I have Flashed the LeeDrOiD v2.2b ROM and when accessing the Stock browser it will randomly crash, it's a strange crash because normally a crash will mean that you will exit from the browser and next time it will load to the homepage, on mine though it will sort of crash but then load the page I was on, even if it wasn't my homepage, if I had any tabs open I would also lose all of those, which is how I know it's crashing.
This isn't specific to this version of the ROM though as I've had this since v1.4, when I asked in the XDA forums they said it might be to do with re-installing my backed up data, basically I went from Android 2.1 to 2.2 when I Flashed the ROM and they said that backing up data when crossing over Android versions could cause problems.
What I have done this time though is not backup anything, no SMS, no system settings, nothing! I deleted everything off my SD Card, cleared the cache, then cleared the Dalvik cache, did a factory reset, Flashed the ROM and then Flashed the radio but still this problem exists, I haven't backed up anything this time, although when I logged into the Market with my Google account it synced my contacts back onto my phone, as they're linked to my Google account somehow.
This is really starting to annoy me now but I can't figure out for the life of me why it happens, I've tried replicating it to narrow down the cause but I can make it happen one time doing it a certain way but then doing it that way again it'll be fine.
Has anyone got any ideas of how I can overcome this problem or how to Flash the ROM so that my browser will work correctly, this browser problem is the only problem I have with the ROM, apart from that it is superb.
Any help very much appreciated!
EDIT: Also, the browser can crash whether I'm connected to a data plan/Wi-Fi or not!
I rooted using the nabi lab 2 (URL....), after a prior root, gapps installation which had the update issue. I am on the current .37 update.I downloaded dragonbox from the play store, and it loads but nothing on the screen responds to touch. Is there a way I can force this app to work on the Nabi? Or is this an issue with the software? (I'd be willing to get to the bones, rid the Monarch UI, etc. to have better functionality of the Nabi).
I bought a Galaxy Note GT-N7000 in Indonesia. (PDA: N7000DXLC2, PHONE: N7000DXLC1, CSC: N7000OLBLC2). The installed languages are asian languages (+English), so I would like to change the firmware to a European version, since I would like to have Hungarian language on the phone (especially but not only because I would like to be able to type messages with Swype). My plan is to change to this one: N7000XXLA6, N7000OXXLA1
The question: The new firmware belongs to a different location than the old one.
I'm trying to set up my work e-mail and the e-mail language (exchange server, POP, IMAP, ports, SSL) has always confused me. The two ways I can access my e-mail is through Outlook in the office and webmail anywhere else.
I just downloaded K-9 and I'm trying to figure out how to set it up. Am I supposed to do it by syncing with Outlook, through Webmail, or something different. Depending on which one, do I select POP3, IMAP, or WebDav(Exchange)? I tried exchange and used my webmail logins for username and password and then the Microsoft Exchange Server name that shows up in my Outlook as the WebDAV (Exchange) server. The port defaulted at 80 and I tried to do that but it didn't work.
I was looking at the bluetooth settings on the Evo, and it has an FTP server option that can be checked. Not sure how it works, but it sure sounds like it may be possible to set it up to just easily drag and drop files to the SD card from a computer over bluetooth, but maybe I'm missing something?
Ok all of a sudden, my phone will not vibrate for messages anymore. Even if I put the sound profile to vibrate, it will not. Anyone experienced this or is there some type of setting that can tweak this?
It all of a sudden started doing this like an hour ago. It will play a notification sound if I want it to but will not vibrate, which is how i like to receive my texts. I have the option checked for phone to vibrate when messages are received and nothing at all.
I just bought a Nexus 4 and I'd like to activate it on Metro PCS. I inserted the sim card thinking it would work but it doesn't. I read on various sites that it does work since Metro PCS is on T-Mobiles network. So how do i set up so it can work to make calls and stuff?
Just got this badass i9000 and loving it! I am Using 02, and before on my old ericson, you could do setup a template with *0# at the begining of every message to do a Delivery Report (lets you know that the recipient got the text by texting you back automatically) so everytime you wrote a new msg you could use that template with one click... Is this possible to tag every outgoing SMS with *0# automatically or setup templates? Otherwise how using 02 can I get a delivery report (normal setting for delivery report dont work for 02)
SMS Popup works on 2.2 -- but the setting to increase the speed doesn't work. The color changes work (note, they don't work on the app's own test function, you have to send yourself a text), which I love, but I had to uninstall after realizing that the speed increase doesn't work.
