Android :: Devices Sync Apps And Settings Between Each Other?

Aug 29, 2010

Android tablets seem pretty cool, but what about those who already have Android smartphones? Will they have to manage two separate devices if they get tablets as well? My question is this: Can android devices sync apps and settings between each other? Will a Google account transfer all apps on one device to another automatically?

Android :: 2.1 Devices Won't Sync With Exchange 2003 SP2

Aug 2, 2010

We have a client running Exchange 2003 SP2, and a few users would like to sync their Android phones - a Motorola Droid and an LG Ally, both running Android 2.1. Both phones give us the following error when configure a sync account:

This Exchange ActiveSync server requires security features your phone does not support.

I've made sure that Exchange ActiveSync is working, I've tried allowing unsupported devices in Exchange System Manager, adding the users to the device security exclusion list, but I'm not coming up with anything that will allow the Android devices to sync.

Android :: Purchased Apps On Multiple Devices?

Mar 20, 2010

I have a question about the way the Android market handles purchased apps.I've seen in other posts where if you upgrade to a new phone, your purchased apps will follow you.But how about if you use more than one Android device? For instance, later this year I may get an Android tablet. Presumably the apps I purchased on my Droid will downloadable on the tablet. But will they remain downloadable on my Droid? And if I purchase an app on the tablet, will it also be downloadable on my Droid?It seems to me that if the apps are associated with your account, then you should be able to download them on multiple devices.I was just wondering if anyone has actually tried and confirmed this.

HTC Droid Eris : Unable To Get Exchange Sync Settings

Jun 2, 2010

Ever since 2.1 OTA I can't get my sync settings to stick.I want it to push items as they arrive. I check that box, but when I exit out, it goes back to manual. I've tried changing this in the email settings and in the main sync settings.This is driving me crazy- I keep missing my work emails!Also- I have never figured out how to get my vibrating notifications back after the OTA. If my ringer is on vibrate, the only notification I have that an item arrived is my LED.Finally- has anyone found the fix to the multiple notification email bug? I still get 3-4 notifications for one email when my ringer is on ring.

HTC Hero :: Not Getting Past First Settings - No Apps?

Jan 9, 2010

I just got a new, unbranded, unlocked Hero (my first, so I have no idea how things are supposed to work), and can't seem to get anywhere:After start I get language settings, then select "next", then a request for a SIM card. I don't have that card yet, but I can't skip this window. According to HTC-support, a SIMcard is not necessary for setting up the phone, using many of the functions, and using WiFi. But they didn't tell me how to solve the problem.After a lot of fiddling around, I managed to find the WiFi settings and got connected there. But there simply is no Home Page (or whatever its called, the main page that you see in all the adverts), I can't get to settings, there are no applications.I did a hard/factory restart, but no joy - the problem stays the same.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Go From Apps2SD To NOT Using It Without Losing Apps / Its Settings?

May 20, 2010

Is there a way, to go from Apps2SD to NOT using Apps2SD without losing apps or app settings?

The process as I understand it is:

Make a Nandroid Backup (or do you need Nandroid+ext?)
copy SD contents to PC
Wipe phone, Wipe and repartition SD card w/ no ext
replace contents of SD card (while in Recovery you can mount the card, correct?)
flash ROM
Restore

The question I have is, will all the apps and settings be in the restore, or will I need to reinstall and set everything up again?

I already have Astro, and have backed up my apps to my SD card. But I would like something more comprehensive, say the way Blackberry Desktop software can do a complete back up from one phone and restore it all to a different phone. What backup apps do you use?

HTC Incredible :: Factory Settings Restore Stock Apps - Bloatware

I'm worried that a factory reset won't revert them because I theoretically shouldn't have been able to ever remove "system" apps in the first place. I'd like to hope/think that the developers would have this feature as part of a reset but who knows.
