General :: Phone Will Not Shut Up?

Feb 9, 2014

For some reason whenever I now use the keyboard on my LG 4X HD the phone says aloud the key I'm pressing. I don't even know what it's called, perhaps "keypress vocals"? Can't find where to switch it off or even turn down the volume, which is really loud, very annoying as it does it even when the phone is on mute. Searched the settings, no luck. I'm going to be travelling a lot on planes and trains in the next few weeks and I really don't want people listening to what I type. I think on some forum somewhere mentioned that it could be a Driving Mode setting, but I can't find that anywhere either.

General :: Any Way To Make It Impossible To Shut Down Phone In Certain Periods

Dec 10, 2012

I would like to know if there is a possibility (maybe an app) to make it impossible for me to shut down / turn off my Android phone (in certain periods of the day). I want to not be able to turn off my phone.

(The reason behing it: In the morning every time the alarm goes off, instead of solving the math problem to turn it off, I turn off my phone and continue sleeping )

HTC Desire :: Overheating While Phone On Charging

Jun 3, 2010

I have had my HTC Desire, so I have had it for too long, yesterday it was a hot day and I put my phone in charge whilst it was on with mobile internet on, and was on my bed just under the cover and I completely forgot about it, when i come back after around 7-8 hours the phone is extremely hot and I can smell the phone. I looked at the phone and the battery had only 2 percent charge left which is odd considering it had been in charge for around 7 hours and was very slow like sliding from home screen to home screen was painfully slow, once I left the phone to cool and gave it a charge to 100% I turned the phone back on to find the phone was and still is very slow, also by hot I mean a good 60 degrees hot. Do you think I have done any permanent damage to the phone and that it will never be fast again? Also have I damaged the battery? Can any of the phones get internals damaged by this? Anyone had any overheating issues or problems resulting from this?

HTC Incredible :: Phone Overheating While Charging

May 8, 2010

I was charging my incredible today and after a few hours I noticed the red led light blinking. Thinking it was a missed call I picked it up and noticed it was really hot! I have battery snap app and when I checked the status it said the battery was overheating. I had it plugged into the wall charger that came with the phone. Is this normal? It wasn't charging that long...maybe 4 or 5 hours. I'm worried about leaving my phone on the charger at night time (which is usually when I charge my phones). Does the standard charger not have one of those chips that keeps the battery from over charging? Also, when I took the phone off the charger after noticing it was hot, the battery widget said it dropped from 100% to about 90% after only 10 min. Did I screw up my battery? If so, please tell me it's covered under the insurance.

HTC Incredible :: Phone Overheating / Does Not Charge?

May 30, 2010

I was using my DI as a GPS today, in a mount on the windshield, and had it plugged in the whole time. It was about 90 degrees outside and I had the AC blasting in my car as I drove along the highway.....I noticed after a while that the bolt in the battery display was missing, meaning it wasn't getting charged, and that at the same time the notification LED was alternating between orange and green. I couldn't figure out why it wasn't charging anymore, but after I changed the vent in my car from forward to indirect (there is a vent that shoots air upward right below the mount, coincidentally) it cooled down and started charging again.

HTC Desire :: Overheating Of Phone While Charging In Car

May 16, 2010

Also the SMALLER the better when it comes to the Lighter adapter, as its right next to my hand break etc and gets in the way if tall. Its either the way above or to get the HARD wired BRODIT cradle.

HTC Incredible :: GPS Active - Overheating Phone?

Aug 16, 2010

While making an 8 hour trek to Chicago this weekend, I learned something horrible about my dearest Incredible. She overheats, BADLY when I have my GPS on. Three hours into my drive, my phone actually shut down. So I was curious if anyone had any pointers, or had this happen as well? I had my screen at MINIMAL brightness, had the GPS on and had screen on to follow along, was streaming music from pandora as well. All updates for email/twitter/fb or anything were turned off. Now I had the phone on my shifter console, where there was no sun. But it was on it's back, so on the assumption that it couldn't "breathe", I wedged the top against the opening to my CD player so it was tilted. So air could get to the back of the phone, STILL my status for my battery was "over heat." I had no case, or holder on, nor did I plug it in to charge.

After the phone shut down I took the back casing off, took the battery out, and let it sit on the floor and turned the A/C vents towards it. But really disappointed that my phone couldn't handle the trek. Anyone have any helpful tips about keeping their phone from overheating, or WHAT TO DO? Or if I damaged my phone? It overheated 3 times on my drive...and really disappointed I'm going to have to dust off my Garmin.

HTC Hero :: Overheating In Particular Areas While Talking On Phone

Oct 21, 2009

Just got my sprint hero last week. I noticed that while talking on the phone for longer than 5 minutes the phone seems to get extremely hot. In particular the speaker in the front and where the camera is in the back. The heat generated is really intense and is really uncomfortable after a certain amount of time. What I want to know is anybody else having this issue?

HTC Incredible :: Overheating Of Phone Specially Battery

May 1, 2010

I used the camcorder on my Incredible today while outside to shoot some footage and test out the quality. I had the camcorder running for about five consecutive minutes and noticed the back of the phone was hot (it's in the Verizon shell/holster combo). I have BatteryLife running and it said the battery was overheating at 118 degrees. I turned the camcorder off, but it stayed that way for at least half an hour afterwards, even though I had gone inside. It was around 85 degrees outside, which may have been a factor. The Incredible is my first smartphone, so I'm slowly learning what it's all about. I'm not sure what is considered an acceptable temperature. Even though it was hot out, it struck me as odd that the battery would heat up like that.

Motorola Droid :: Overheating And Phone Restarts

Oct 29, 2010

After months without a random reboot, my phone did it twice consecutively today while I was trying to navigate while streaming music (Pandora) on the way from the airport this morning. It worked perfectly on the 1 hour drive there (also on the round trip going there the previous week), but while I was waiting for the guys I was picking up at the arrival gate, I was browsing the web and still streaming music and my phone just did a "soft" restart (where it doesn't show the Moto logo, just the boot animation). Slightly annoying. At least it gets to the launcher pretty quick still. Then, maybe 30 minutes later on the trip back, it does it again while I'm driving back. This time when it got back to the home screen, it refused to pick up any sort of cell signal like it was in airplane mode, but all the other radios were on (BT and satellite). Toggling airplane mode had no affect on it. So I had to totally reboot my phone to get it to work again. I think it may be heat related, when it came back up the first time, SetCPU read the CPU at 51�C/124�F and that was immediately after reboot, so it may have cooled down some during that. After the second reboot I brought the clock down to 800 MHz from 1.1 GHz and it was good for the rest of the trip. But I was running the exact same load/apps on it the last trip and the ambient temp in the car was the same. So I wanted to see if there some system log/app that can tell me what process forced the phone to reboot or maybe what the CPU temp was when it crashed, to rule out software. Is there anything like this? If not, does anyone know what the max temp the CPU can handle before it forces a reboot? I'm sure there's a threshold for this, just like there is for PCs (but usually they just throttle instead of shutting down), but I don't know what it is. I would think ~60�C would be way too damn hot for a CPU in a hand held device.

Samsung Vibrant :: Phone Started Overheating?

Aug 1, 2010

my phone has started running hot. I'm not talking about when I'm charging it, I expect it to get warm while charging, I'm talking about just normal use. It gets very warm, almost hot, back of the phone, above the battery, near the camera lens/sd card/sim card area. Again the battery is cool to the touch if I remove the cover, but the area above the battery is getting really hot, and I noticed when my phone gets hot, the battery life starts to drain like crazy.

Samsung Moment :: Rooted Phone Overheating Now

Aug 7, 2010

My phone is rooted. I was able to get rid of a few stock apps I did not use. However, now my phone is overheating, battery life is about the same as before, (short) and I cannot tell there are any tangible improvements with the rooting procedure!... Applications take time to load up, and touching screen to open them freezes now and then constantly. Is it the phone or is it the rooting that is causing the problem??

Android :: Openly Hostile Rant To Android Developers On Apps That Won't Shut Off Or Stay Shut Off

Jun 28, 2010

What possible reason could there be for you to code your apps so that they switch on in the background when the phone is turned on and use up precious battery life?

Or, why would you code your apps to stay on after I, the user, have hit the back button because I no longer want your app to run?

I mean, REALLY! Yes, I own up to being a newbie Android user, and what I don't know could fill the Library of Congress. Still, this is common sense we're talking about here. I've done some industrial app development and Enter/Exit, On/Off are basic pieces of logic in the main loop of an program in any language.

The only reason that we phone users need task killer apps is because you developers insist on creating apps that don't know when the f**k to turn themselves off.

And, it seems to me like you, the app developers, are one of the main reason why these phones have such crappy battery life. I mean, my Samsung Instinct, as bad as it was, got 18 to 24 hours of life off of one charge. With the Hero, I'm lucky if I can get 10 hours, and that's even with configuring my email download to only three times per day!

This is not hard, people. You code the app to stay off until, I, the user, manually turn it on. AND, you also code it to turn off when I, the user, hit the back button.

Yes, I understand that there are certain apps that it is advantageous to keep running in the background. So, fine, make it so those keep running. BUT, there is no possible reason for apps like Flashlight, or BBC News, or Camera, or SprintTV to have to run all the time in the background!

I am so tempted to just trash the lot of you. If I did, maybe I might not have as much functionality, but my teenager would be able to reach me late in the day because my phone battery would still have juice.

General :: How To Prevent Google Contacts From Synchronizing With Phone

Oct 16, 2012

I like all the functionality Google has to offer with their contacts management. It's nice to know my contacts are backed up on-line so that I they're not lost if I manage to lose my phone. However, I do not want contacts loaded onto my phone that I do not communicate with by cellphone (only e-mail). There's simply no point to it. I do not use a local client e-mail application--only GMail. I'd rather keep my phone contacts list succinct. But I have yet to figure out a way to do this, except by keeping a separate GMail account specifically for managing my phone contacts (I keep only those with phone numbers, and synchronize with that one). I'd rather keep it all unified in one account (both contacts and calendar).

General :: Prevent Screen Wake After BT Phone Call

Jun 30, 2012

Any way to change how the phone behaves in regards to the screen waking up after ending a Bluetooth phone call? Windows Mobile handled this correctly. Android does the opposite.

For example, I am on a phone call using BT headset, I press the power button and put the phone to sleep, put the phone in my pocket, end the call and the screen wakes up with the dialer open. Guess what happens next.....pocket dialing!

WM would end the call and the screen wouldn't turn on, and even after waking it up it was locked.

BT headsets, voice dialing, but I can't just leave the phone in my pocket?

End call should equal no wake or unlock(no action)

General :: Prevent Phone Locking - Not Bypass Lock Screen?

Feb 25, 2012

I've tried so many app's over the last couple of days that claim to stop the screen from locking but they have all just bypassed the lock screen... Well, they've tried to anyway. These kind of work arounds don't actually stop my phone from locking in the first place though.

My phone is a W008+ iPhone clone with Android 2.3.3. When it's charging, the screen will time out and switch off; But it doesn't lock. So I can hit any key to bring the screen back on and as it wasn't locked in the first place, I'm taken straight back to where I was.

When not charging, I get the same behaviour for ~2 or 3 seconds... Any longer and it locks forcing me to use the power key and swipe the lock screen along with any other security measures I may have in place.What I'd like is to be able to set the 'lock' timeout in the way that I can set the 'screen' timeout.How far will I have to go to get this functionality?

Is there a setting I've missed? I'm very new to Android so there's lots I don't know yet.

Are there any app's that can really do this? Maybe this would need a root app?

General :: HTC Desire S Overheating While Charging?

Nov 24, 2011

I have a HTC desire S S-OFF rooted 3 days back. I flashed it with Endymion Rom 2.2 2 days back. I was charging my battery and when i saw it after a while it was at 50 degrees C and it was discharging though connected. after unplugging temperature reduced.

I calibrated my battery last night by fully charging it, the charged it again at off state the again when its on then wiped battery stats and charged again. the voltage is a little over 4.2V.

Now i had put it for charge and when i saw it was 85% charged and Temp was 40 degrees C and phone was idle all this while . at 85% it was 4220mV. i was using it while charging and temperature dropped to 38 and voltage reduced till 4214mV and again incresed to 4219mV by the time it was 87% charged. is it heating more when its idle? What is the solution? Is this normal?

General :: I9300 Extreme Battery Drainage And Overheating

May 10, 2013

Before I entered the world of custom ROMs, my i9300's battery was fine. However, when I flashed my first custom rom months ago (CM10.1 nightly), my battery would drain from 100% to 0% in around four or five hours. This was only on light to moderate use, with a bit of Web browsing and Kindle. GPS and mobile data are almost always both off, other than when I need them, and brightness is set at the lowest possible 90% of the time. I checked my battery usage in the settings and there was no evidence of the renowned mediaserver cause of battery drainage, so I'm not really sure what the cause is.

Also, a few days ago my phone began reaching extreme temperatures when I executed any operation on my phone. At the moment I am typing in xda only and my battery is at 111 degrees. I noticed that it began with a certain nightly of Carbonrom and Temasek kernel.

I have done numerous factory resets and flashed different ROMs and even gone back to stock and fully unrooted, but the problem persists.
