I own a BB Playbook tablet for about a year now (bought it during the when it was about 200$ because I needed a 7'', the hardware was specs were nice at the time and the company promised Android app support). Regardless of the sanity of my decision the device saves me about 2 hours per day (I use it mainly to read pdf and build an xls database).
I've converted many apk to bar in order to sideload them to my device (not all of these work). Recently I tried Firefox on my Xperia mobile and was quite pleased with the ABP plugin So I tried to convert the apk but both the apk2bar and the Blackberry Graphical Aid Tool complain that the version number is too long...
I've experienced two problems with Google Voice that are causing me to get charged minutes I wouldn't usually get charged. If I can't solve them, I'll have to go back to using my Verizon number. First, let me say that I'm using a new Google Voice number that isn't Verizon cell phone number or any other preexisting number. Second, my girlfriend is on my family plan, but she doesn't have GV yet. We're using the 700-minute plan, so we don't have a friends circle.
Problem 1: When I call my girlfriend's Verizon wireless phone using the GV on my Verizon phone, I get charged, and when she calls my GV number on my Verizon Wireless phone from her Verizon wireless phone, she gets charged. We don't cash in on our free in-network calling. I know, this should have been obvious, but it just never occurred to me until after I looked at the bill. I'd be able to work with that, though, and just select "Call without using Google Voice" or whatever when calling her if it weren't for the second problem. When people call my Google Voice number, I get charged when I don't answer. Usually, it's just a one-minute charge, but sometimes it's two or three minutes (don't know why). With anything less than an unlimited plan, minutes count. Not good.
I've recently bought a Cubot x6 and I'm having trouble adding a new APN, it will not save when I change the MNC from 33 to 30, but will allow me to change and save all other APN settings. I've seen this problem solved elsewhere with the use of app's, but to my knowledge APN settings cannot be altered by apps in the latest android version (im running 4.2.2).
I have been using a Pantech Sky Vega racer 2 but it just get Android 4.1 and I would like to upgrade to 4.2 or 4.4 (the best one). How can I upgrade for my device ? or That brand should buy your license to upgrade that version ? the Android 4.2 is a lot of better than 4.1 and a lot of app I need to use so how can i get that upgrade for my self of my business ?
when the Optimus V came out, I found a thread either on here or XDA about how to change the model number to think it was a different phone. I did this to allow for the usage of Netflix, and I think I may have changed it to a Nexus model..
My current phone, the Optimus F7, is rooted and running stock Android 4.1.2 JB. (I rooted in order to allow for uninhibited tethering from my carrier.)I have browsed here, XDA, and countless pages on Bing and Google... yet I have found nothing about doing this... to any phone.My only desire (not the phone) is to make my F7 think it's - at least - a Galaxy S3. Many of my friends, coworkers and family have the S3 and I figure out things and solve problems on their phones, yet I find nothing on my own, so I simply wanted to turn it into an S3.
I am aware that I could simply get an S3, but I have had horrid luck with Samsung devices (not software) in the past, but have had wonderful luck with LG devices.
I have Galaxy Gio(Running on JellyBread). Is it possible to change IMEI no. Without changing hardware? If yes then how will it change my device(I mean will it cause some problems e.g network operator problems)
So, I've just started create my first Android ROM, for my Galaxy Note. I'm now enjoying my break from school, and what could be better then spending it developing? Well, let's start!
I've downloaded two ROMs that a friend of mine has created. He's right now on vacation, so I can't ask him.
My first problem is probably a simple one. But how do I change the "About Phone" section? I understand that I can't change the model number, or the Baseband version. But how do I change the Build number so that it shows my ROM name?
Remember do tell me idiot simple, due to the fact that this in my first ROM.
I've recently been searching for a root for the LG Optimus L7 p705g v10e for a friend of mine and learned that there is no root available for this software version (v10e). I am unable to update his software version in order to root.
know a way to change this software version so that I will be able to root this phone?
Basically I'm trying to get my Wife/teens to stop using carrier text messaging without having to explain to them how to use two different applications to send texts.
Doesn't have to be Google voice, really any app that will act as the default messaging app and when texts come in over the Verizon number and they reply to the text the recipient gets the "free" text number to respond to will work - Gvoice just seemed like the easy choice.
What I'm looking to do is change the reply-to number that gets sent to text message recipients from the default messaging app, Go SMS or Handcent SMS. What I do NOT want to do is have two separate text messaging apps. I want all texts to come from one application.
The idea here is to avoid paying Verizon text messaging charges and eventually block carrier text messaging altogether by using Google voice to send/receive all SMS.
Ideally this is how it would work - When a friend sends me a txt using my Verizon number I get a notification. I click reply and then press send and one of two things happens:
1. Instead of sending the text over Verizon's network the text automatically sends it through Google voice and my friend sees my Google voice number and replies to it, essentially encouraging them to use the new phone number but seamless from my perspective.
2. Another alternative is to send the text message over Verizon's SMS network but have the reply-to number be my Google voice number so when they reply it will go through Google voice.
While #1 will more quickly reduce the number of text messages sent through the carrier network what's most important is I'm using the same app for all texting.
I don't mind purchasing an app that can do this either.
Any way to get the version/build number programatically? I dug into Settings source code, it indicated that this info could be read from the file /proc/socinfo, but this file doesn't seem to exists on any of the devices I'm working with?! Wondering where else I might be able to get this info.
We have a set of 3-5 android applications that we have developed for an enterprise to integrate with our back-end. How do we create an installer system that upgrades applications automatically. We were thinking of getting version numbers and querying the backend to get current versions and downloading them. How do I get the version number of an application in Android?
I have a droid, and google voice. I have setup my 5th number as xxx-xxx-xxxx, and tmobile as the name. If I go into GV settings and select :use google voice for all of my calls", does that mean that they will all be free since they are using the GV# for both in and out calls?
We are using Hudson to automate our Android build. I need to incorporate the build number into the version string used in our app. Was wondering if anyone had an example of doing that before I (re?)invent that wheel. Obviously I need to replace a string value in one of our config files.
Everyone probably has the exact same Build Number, but than again, maybe a couple don't. So after a search, I was not able to find a thread like this, so here it is. I just received my X10 yesterday and per Sony Support, my X10 has the current OS. So here is my info:
I was wondering if it is possible to have Eclipse automatically increment the build version number inside of the Manifest each time that I either build or run an Android app. Has anyone ever done something like this?
Basically, i use my personal cell phone for work and personal use, i have multiple exchange accts that keep things sorted and seperated.
recently though i have been getting more and more business calls to my cell phone, during and outside of normal business hours.
what im looking for is an app that will take a selective group of contacts/phone numbers/CID strings and if it is a "business" call then forward it to a specific phone number (external number, the actual business line).
I have seen apps on the market and around that will forward calls to voicemail if they match certain filters, but i cant really seem to find an app that will forward to an external number. Any way I could accomplish this?
My son decided to lock his tablet with a random number he plucked from the universe! one that he can't remember! I'm pretty sure it's a MID here is the link to where I got it from. 8G 7" Android Tablet 4.1 Dual Cam Keyboard Case | Trade Me. I have tried all the different power volume button combos that were suggested on web, also have tried downloading the program to my pc to share info with the tablet, but the information sharing must not be turned on in the tablet, as when the device showed up in my computer it was empty! Where I purchased it from will send me a Getroot, but I have to pay and I'm not sure if this will even work!
I know this is a rather odd question, but, I know that on the damageless rom, it defaults to locate for GSM Radio Towers. Now, I know there is two HTC Hero devices, The Eris (GSM Version) and the Hero (CDMA Version), however the ability to search for different towers in the Damageless rom has me intrigued on if it is possible at all.
Why I ask is, I am going out of the country, specifically to the carribean islands and mexico. I am wondering if it is at all possible to use it like that. I really doubt it because I don't think that the CDMA version is backwards compatible with the GSM version, but I thought I might as well ask.
While creating a new android project in eclipse 3.5, i have selected Android 2.1 Update1 as build target. But i forgot to give the mini SDK version. Now when the build the project, its giving a warning message "WARNING: Application does not specify an API level requirement!Device API version is 8 (Android 2.2)"
The application is running fine..but when i run that application is my Samsung Galaxy S which is having android 2.1, the application is behaving differently.
I have even tried adding <uses-sdk minSdkVersion="7" /> in the manifest file..But still i am getting the warning message..
So how can i change the mini SDK of my project in eclipse to 7,so that i get the same result in my emulator and Mobile phone?
I want to know how to use the setResultData() in worker thread
1. Registered a broadcast receiver for this intent "android.intent.action.NEW_OUTGOING_CALL" 2. So using "intent.getStringExtra", i got the user dialed number. 3. After that i need to do some database operation and after that i have to change the user dialed number. 4. Using setResultData(), i will update the dialed number.
here i want to do the database operation in worker thread instead of doing it in OnReceive() of BroadcastReceiver.So from the worker thread how can i use the setResultData()?
