General :: Galaxy S4 - Lock Or Password Protect Phone Settings Or Data Usage?

Nov 19, 2013

I'm on a family plan with my wife and 13yr old son. We purchased a Galaxy S4 for our son as a Birthday present in October. However, as of recent his grades have taken a dive. We notice he eats, sleeps and breathes on the phone. He primarily uses it for surfing the net, instagram or youtube. We were thinking of grounding him and removing his phone but we need him to have his phone as a point of contact. However, is there anyway to stop his data usage. I realize there is a setting on the phone to disable data usage but it is fairly easy to re-enable it.

Is there anyway to lock or password protect the phones settings or data usage?

I tried googling but the results kept yielding information relative to the "lock screen" which isnt what im looking for.

General :: Lock / Password Protect Specific Settings?

Apr 14, 2011

Is there a way or an app that will let me lock certain parts of Settings? Like if I want to allow our users to change Sound, Display, etc, but lock them out of Applications and Accounts&Sync?

I have found a few apps that will let us password protect things on the phone, but with them if I choose Settings, then they can't change anything and I want them to have a bit of flexibility, but I have to keep them out of Applications because then they could just kill the password app that locks them out of certain apps.

General :: Lock Or Password Protect Wallpaper Settings

Jun 3, 2013

I'm looking for a way to lock or password protect the wallpaper settings. There are apps out there that lock apps, and lock the "settings" app, but long pressing the homescreen allows you to alter wallpapers directly and circumvents any such protection.

I know you can password protect the whole phone, but that's besides the point. I'm looking for a way to protect wallpaper settings specifically.

General :: Data Usage Settings Crashes When Opened

Aug 7, 2013

I have a Motorola RAZR V XT885 running stock Android 4.0.4 on Virgin Mobile.

A couple days ago I tried to set a mobile data limit at 6gb using the stock app. For some reason it thought I wanted a limit set at 500gb. Since then I have not been able to reopen the app to reset it or turn off the limit, settings crashes and sends me back to my home screen. I have rebooted my phone multiple times and cleared the cache, but I'm unsure where to go from here.

General :: Password Protect Some Photos In Gallery?

Apr 22, 2014

I had a Galaxy Ace S5830 phone and now I've changed my phone. It had one app that I could protect any of my gallery photos with a password. I don't know if it was a pre-installed app by Samsung or I had installed it manually and I can't remember the name of that. I need it for my new Galaxy Note... Remember I just want special photos in my gallery to be password protected. I DON'T mean an "App Locker Program, such AppLocker Pro app or similar to it".

Android :: Lock Data Usage To Email?

Jun 19, 2009

Is it possible to lock down the phone so that the only data usage is email? I don't even mind if the email has to be manually send / received; due to the small amount of data I have on my plan, I just don't ever want to use edge / 3g for anything other then email data. Once I'm on wifi then other data is fine.

General :: Samsung Galaxy Note - Lost Password / How To Unlock Without Losing All Data

Sep 28, 2013

A friend of mine set a password on his Galaxy Note and then he forgot it.Now, I know the solution is to access recovery and wipe data/factory reset.

BUT unfortunately he has lot of pictures and videos stored in the phone memory, not on SD, and he'd like not to lose all of it.

Is there a workaround for that? The Note is stock, but I can work on it, if there's a way to unlock the phone without losing data.

Samsung Captivate :: Does Android Have Support For Apps That Can Use To Password Protect Certain Apps On Phone?

Jul 21, 2010

I'm new to Android. I recently was an iPhone fan but thought that Android was a better alternative to iPhone. So anyway, I have a few questions about the Captivate. Does Android have support for apps that you can use to password protect certain apps on the phone? Like messages, and photos for more private stuff. Another question I have: is the Captivates reception really bad? I currently have the iPhone 4 while it doesn't have the best of signal, its not too bad either. And my last question is if the captivate has support for 32gb cards. I'm sorry if someones already gone over these but I could find anything right away. Anyways, I look forward to Android and the Captivate.

General :: Migrating From 3G To 4G Phone - Will Data Usage Increase

Sep 14, 2012

I plan to upgrade to a 4G LTE device this year. Typically, my usage on my 3G device (a Droid 2 Global) runs less than 1 GB a month. Have any people experienced increases in their monthly data usage after switching to a 4G-enabled device? And if so, do you think it would be due to the fact that you're consuming more data at a faster rate, watching more videos, streaming more content through your cellular data network because of the increased capability?

I'm trying to decide between buying old technology off of a third party (e.g. Droid 4/Razr Maxx at no contract) or upgrading to the latest and best (GS3/Razr Maxx HD) for the same cost, but losing the unlimited.

General :: Samsung Galaxy S2 Power Lock Button Not Showing Network Data On / Off Toggle

Feb 10, 2013

I was searching online to see how to make a shortcut to toggle the 3G connection on and off without having to sift through multiple menus. I came across the method of having a long press on the power lock button to pull up the menu but mine does not show the network data on/off option and never has. It only shows

* Silent mode
* Airplane mode
* Power off
* Restart

Nothing else. Is there a way I can make a shortcut or some other way to ADD the network data on/off on this pull up menu from the power lock button? By the way why would my phone not have this option from the start when the phone came with Gingerbread and was updated to ICS 4.0.4? I have Sprint so they call this the Epic 4G Touch, so not sure if it was Sprint that buggered this from the other SGS2s that have this feature or not.

Jelly Bean :: Galaxy S3 Settings And SIM Lock?

Apr 10, 2014

' I'm having a few issues with my Galaxy S3, I was getting an error 923 when trying to download or update apps from Google Play, I searched and found a solution is to clear the cache from Google Play and reboot the phone.

When I go to the "app Info" in settings the data and cache sections both say "computing".

Then 1 or 2 things happen, 1: it will drop back to the home screen or 2: the phone will reboot.

I am unbale to update or download apps any longer on Google Play.

Other issue is I have a SIM Lock pin set, now when the phone reboots it is not showing the unlock sim screen and boots straight to the home screen and not connecting to my mobile providers network.

I have to go into settings remove the SIM Lock Pin and then the phone will connect to the network and then set the pin again.

HTC Hero :: Security Flaw - Password Protect The Recovery Image

Sep 19, 2010

Is it possible to password protect the recovery image; where we flash our roms ect...?

I have password protected the device to stop the phone being used while it is on, but it's really pointless when someone can turn the phone off and just reflash the device.

Granted, they could do that anyway even if i had an offical rom without the recovery image, but it would still be a nice feature if it's possible.
