I'm new to smartphones. I hate the keypad on the calling app. Running 4.3 on xperia z1 compact. Just can't hit the right numbers. I notice that the numeric keypad in a number of apps is a lot more usable, Because there's physical separation between the numbers. I've tried searching around the subject, but just get info on text keypads, not calling keypads. Can I configure my calling app keypad?
I have created an edit text. Currently the writing keypad is made visible when i click on it. Is there a possibility where I can make the writing keypad visible from starting itself i.e. no need to click on the edit text view.
I would like the Gmail client to open when I tap the Email icon on the bar on the bottom the screen (the app the is preinstalled on the Captivate and located in the application list). Currently, the stock application is launched, and since this application is short to worthless, I want the Gmail client to open instead of it so that I don't need to add a short cut to it and at the same time end up with a static button that I will never use.
Can anyone with a Vibrant change their voicemail number in settings->call settings->voicemail->voicemail? I'd like to change it so when I speed dial 1 it goes to google voice. I called TM and they said I should be able to change that setting. I installed a new SIM, and I removed TM's visual voice mail. Out of ideas here. I'd at least like to know if it's like this on all Vibrants or just some Vibrants.
How do you change the notification sound for calendar? The one that goes off on calendar is different than the notification sound in settings. Annoying!Also, any idea how to change the color of the default calendar (exchange not google?)Seems like Samsung makes a lot of these kind of settings much harder to find/change than HTC.
Just got an HTC Magic and must say I am really impressed with Android so far. I have one small issue, however, in regards to special characters.
I prefer the keypad with T9 as it is much faster for me than both the compact QWERTY and the full version. For some reason "�", "�" and "�" seems to be hidden away in contrast to ordinary phones. Usually, the 2-button ("a", "b", "c") holds "�" and "�" (written "ae" and "aa") and the 6-button ("m", "n" and "o") has "�" (written "oe"). These vowels is quite common in Danish (and other Scandinavian languages). The compact QWERTY has the "�", "�" and "�" placed on-screen, which makes me wonder why these characters is so difficult to type for the other keyboard types. If these characters were added to the keypad buttons (like any non-Android keypad-based device), it would be quite easy to write (and of course these extra characters would only show up when using a language where they apply).
Where do you suggest such a change? Is it already pluggable or configurable?
I looked through the forum and didn't find a clear answer on this. Is it possible to change the default browser for the google search widget? I use Opera and Operabridge won't do the trick. Every time the search will result on the regular browser.
Is there a way to change the default calendar to which events are added to? I'm syncing to google calendar but when I create an event, it's set to be added to the "My Calendar"and had to be changed each time.
Okay so here is another strange thing I noticed with the update.2 of the 3 phones that got the update now have a little home icon on the bottom of one of the touchwiz screens when you are in the edit mode. This page with the home icon can now be moved to whereever you want it in the positioning of the 1-7 screens you have and when you click on the "home" key at the very bottom it will go to that screen. Previously there was no home key and your home screen was either the middle or far left screen depending on the number of screens you had.
So I just installed the android 4.0 and my keyboard is stuck on the Google keyboard. It says it is default and it is the only keyboard option I can check or uncheck. how to change the default keyboard from the Google one?
I have a MK802 II. Unfortunately my TV seems to have issue with 720p, it works perfectly on 576p. ICS is set to boot into 720p and so I would have all the time after booting to revert through the setting applet to 576p. Is there any way (a config file? a kernel option?) to have the OS start by default in 576p?
When I make phone calls, the default screen is the large Droid with the Mute, Speaker and other buttons. I always end up having to press the Keypad button to get the phone keypad to display (checking voicemail or skipping voicemail greetings)Is there anyway to have the keypad be the default screen during phone calls? It seems like the keypad is used much more than Speaker or Mute.
I have Go Launcher installed and would like to change the default icon for an app in the tray. When I press on the icon now it gives me the choice to replace it with a custom icon and that is what I would like to do. I actually would like to use the icon for the default calendar (on my Bionic) for the icon for this app but I can not seem to locate the calendar icon.
how I can locate this icon for use or if not possible then suggest other method to show a calendar as the icon.
is there any way to change the default camera app on android? I ask because I have a Moto X and want to get a alternate camera app when I do the twist camera gesture on it. I figured it runs very-close-to-stock android so if possible it's an OS option first.
How do I change the default video player? Right now it is set to open and play videos in the default Android video player, but I want to use a better, more feature rich video player from the marketplace. I tried using apps that changed defaults, but they didn't have any options for videos, just which default app would open pics.
I want to change default settings in update.zip. How i can do this? Where is file responsible for default setting after flashing ROM? I want to change incoming call style from ring to sliding tab. In update.zip.
I have some apps such as Google Drive where I have no options to set the download directory, so it will only download to my internal storage in the default Downloads folder. How can I change this default Downloads folder to something else?
