Most of my work phone calls are unknown number and lately I kept getting a phone call from a private number every half hour or so and it only ring once then hang up. I want to block that private number but not the unknown, I tried couple of apps but it doesn't allow me to just block private number. I have to block unknown, private etc..
The one thing I miss from black berry is I could make my # private, I use my phone for business and take calls for after hours issues, there are times where I dont want people to have the #, I cant figure out how to do this on my Incred, is there an App
Is there away to automatically block private numbers? I get stupid robot calls, leaving blank voice mall things, Dickheads calling me ect, if you don't have a number I don't Wanna talk to you. How can I stop this? I have a rooted HTC One.
i have tried nearly ever single application on the market that claims to block private numbers but it none of them work for me... Idk if its because of the Sprint service or the applications just dont work. I know GBlocker blocks the calls. But it dont block the texts, or prevent it from going to voicemail. Nor does it block private calls. There was this other one I had that blocked calls too but same thing with GBlocker. What i dont understand is that if you choose the option "BLOCK ALL CALLS" it will then block private calls. But the option to just block the private calls fails to work. Is there anything out there that actually works? I have considered buying extreme blocker for $5 but whats the point if it might not work? When blocked numbers call, i dont want their voicemails. Nor do I wanna know their calling.
Is anyone else receiving phone calls from Home Secure 207-512-2295? This effing phone number calls me about every single day, its an automated recording. After the first time i made the mistake of answering my phone it has been non stop. Is there a feature on the evo to where i can block a number? If so, how do i get to it.
I somehow (knowingly or unknowingly) touched & dialled a number from an adult content app and then hung up. Since that day, I keep getting text msgs from different numbers, with lewd text & asking me to call a number (constant across all these sms-es). I block the number using MyVerizon number blocking service; but in 2-3 days I get similar text, asking me to call the same number, from a different number. I keep on blocking this new number (from where the text came) and they keep on sending same text from a different number. This keep on increasing my text bill.
If I reply to one of those texts saying "STOP", as the verizon customer care rep suggested, wouldn't that flag my number as LIVE and they'll start sending me more texts?How about using sms blocker apps? Again, question there is - do the sms blocker apps just delete spam msgs upon receiving and will I still incur the sms cost in my bill?
I just got the Samsung Galaxy S Captivate. Seems like a nice phone. Every phone I've had in the past (Nokia, Sony, etc...) has always allowed me to hide my number so that the call display on the receiver's phone shows my call as 'private'. This is useful for when you don't want certain people to have your number when you call. Is there a way to do this on the Galaxy S? I couldn't seem to find any setting how.
I'm currently developing my own Android widgets. To help me in future projects and speed up my developments, I've been trying to create a private jar that contains all those widgets (that extend from Android classes such as View or ViewGroup). To do that, I created a project and included all files (.Java and resources) in this project. I exported this as a jar file. To test this jar file I created a new project and tried to include my widgets using an XML layout. Unfortunately, it seems that the system does not "see" my resources. Looking at the Android source code, I noticed that android.jar contains its own resources so I assume this is possible.
I'm sure I've done something wrong...but what? What is the problem? And how to solve it?
I've integrated lots of private information like accounting, messaging, emails, tasks and so on, into desktop widgets and everywhere around the phone. Every so often, someone wants to take a look at the phone and play around. Reading some important stuff is one thing, but people tend to mess the stuff around as well. Have you found a program or a way to protect from that? (other than denying to the people :> ) I guess some kind of shell program that you turn over when someone wants to demo the phone would be a nice solution.
iFMW was upgraded: Mobile site for public person or private file share for secret person in one app.
It has two inversion functions on one app. Public person can get his/her own public web site on the phone and secret person can use only private file sharing directly on the phone without uploading. Those who want two demands above will use whole functions.
I am developing an application that involves some sensitive user information. I retrieve this information via a private web API. I am trying to determine the best way to get this data into my app. Right now I'm exploring creating a content provider that can do so; my hesitation is in making it secure. I want this data to be usable only by my application. Ideally, no other apps would even know it exists.
Do you have any pointers or advice on how to do this effectively and securely? Any info on content providers who's data source is a remote OAuth'd API?
I say content provider, but if that isn't the best way to do what I need, by all means let me know what else to look into.
I would like to forward all calls to my number on to the new predefined number automatically. Is it possible to forward incoming call? Probably it is possible for Froyo at least. I found application called Easy Call Forwarding. But many people reckon it dosen't work actually. We can notice forwarded call by onCallForwardingIndicatorChanged() from PhoneStateListener but I have no idea how to set forwarding mode.
I have some new requirement. I have to write a video player which plays the content from the net.Some times the app downloads the video content, and this downloaded data should be private to only my app. No one should not access it.Simply saying providing security to my own content (though the content is taken from the sdcard, it should not be playable).
I synchronize my HTC Desire calendar with an Exchange server.How can I on the phone when I create a new appointment mark it as "private"? I do not want people at my work to see all my calendar appointments. It was possible on my old HTC with windows Mobile.
I'm trying to find a way to access private files created by other packages.According to the dev site (plz see the following), I can read/write files of other packages if some flags are set on the create of those files, but I don't know how. Can I just open those files with Context.openFileInput(or Context.openFileOutput)? Do I need a different way for those three cases? By three cases, I mean getSharedPreferences(String, int), openFileOutput(String, int), openOrCreateDatabase(String, int, SQLiteDatabase.CursorFactory).
Here http://source.android.com/submit-patches/code-style-guide#shortmethods it is stated that :
"Field Names * Non-public, non-static field names start with m. * Static field names start with s. * Other fields start with a lower case letter. * Public static final fields (constants) are ALL_CAPS_WITH_UNDERSCORES.
also states that : "The rules below are not guidelines or recommendations, but strict rules. You may not disregard the rules we list below except as approved on a need-to-use basis." I don't like the "m" convention before private or package fields in a class... I really find this uninspired. I mean, if we try to apply good designs, the low coupling of the classes implies having few public fields. actually, in my programs I usually have no public fields, even when I need some I use getters and seters. so, why should I be forced to have almost all my fields in the program with an "m" in front of them? wouldn't be easier to have the few public fields, if there are any, with some "g" in front or something? or just use setters and geters as beans suggest? this really makes my code harder to read. also, following these guidelines, local temp variables used in the methods have no restriction so they could easily be mistaken for public global fields (also without restriction). this also I find to be wrong, as it is a probable source of mistakes. I understand to have a way of differentiating from fields, but private/protected member fields are the most used in an application, they shouldn't be less "readable". what do you think? should I follow the guidelines?
Talks about it and gives commands, but it doesn't actually say where and in what folder to key in the commands. I am sure I am missing something easy here, but could anyone guide me to where I need to start with this?
I want to rename an context private file created with openFileOutput() but I don't know how...
I tried that:
This code throw FileNotFoundException but the documentation said "Open a private file associated with this Context's application package for writing. Creates the file if it doesn't already exist." so the new file should be created on disk.
The problem: When I try to read from the new renamed file I got FileNotFoundException!
I need to sync some data from a phone with a server in the cloud. To do so, it appears I must create an Account via the AccountManager. If I do this is there anyway to keep the authtoken private (e.g. not accessible to other apps). I understand the value of sharing authentication with services such as Gmail, Facebook, etc; however, the data I am trying to sync is sensitive and for security and performance reasons (e.g. limiting calls, etc.) I would like to control access to the associated APIs.
I have a with regards to an update feature that I am trying to put in my application. I am wondering if it is possible for an application to download a new apk and install it inside the /data/app- private folder (which i presume is for copy protected apps)?
