General :: Samsung Galaxy S - Test 3G Hardware Is Working?
May 6, 2013
I have a Samsung Galaxy S running CyanogenMod 9.
I want to test if my 3g is actually working or not. I used to use the 3G internet on the phone until I changed plan without mobile internet and now I've changed back. The problem is there is no 3G connection now.
I've been onto my network's forums and followed their instructions for setting up APN's etc. and the settings are perfect (even though I never changed them since the last time it worked) So my question is that is there some way to test if your 3G hardware is actually functioning?
Whilst sitting in my home, with full bars for reception on my Galaxy S, I ran a SpeedTest on it. The icon on the 'phone displays a 3G symbol. Results: Download: 384kB Upload:482kB Provider: Tele2/Amsterdam,NL. 3G is really exceeding exceptions. This is on a 2Gb download data plan. Great (Feel the sarcasm )Is this to be expected? Regards.
i just want to know where the hell am I via gps. but the gps circle on the notif bar is winking consistently. i tried almost everything such as Faster fix, gps aids, gps doctor, gps surgeon etc but no success.
My data plan is eating me alive and I didn't know why until I finally noticed that when I am at a hot spot, my wifi never connects until my data plan is locked out.
I have a Note, not a Note II. I am on Rogers, not ATT.
I've tried adjusting everything I can think of, tried a hard reboot of my phone, and when I looked for support with android OS, I couldn't find this Wi-Fi disconnect policy they were talking about anywhere on my phone.
im having a problem with my samsung galaxy s advance. Few weeks ago i spilled some pepsi over my phone. I dried it and everything was working fine. 3 days ago, my speaker stopped working. I reflashed my firmware and it worked for about 5 seconds and then it made cracking sound and would not work. I noticed that, if i suck air from the speaker with my mouth(sometimes i can just put my mouth over it) it would work for 5-30 seconds. But as soon as i remove my mouth it stops working.
I just got a "new" samsung galaxy s3 a few days ago and the only problem I've come across so far is that none of the sms pop up apps I download work. I've used SMS Popup on my previous phones in conjunction with Handcent SMS with no problem. I'm frustrated because I can't figure out why NONE of the apps, SMS 7, Popup Notifier, or SMS Popup, will work. And when I say doesn't work I mean I can open the app and change the settings, but nothing ever happens when I get a text - no popup, no notification, no sound, no LED light. But I've tried the Handcent pop up and it works just fine?
Ok, so i bought a use samsung galaxy s3 I747M. When i got home I was excited to test out all the cool features advertised in the comercials, to my horror, none of them worked. palm screenshot, video while texting, and i cant find the driving mode or s-voice. After tearing through all the settings, I found the the previous owner replaced touchwiz with cyanogenMod 10. Is this why these features don't work?how to get touchwiz back?
I have a Samsung Galaxy s3 and i am banging my head against the wall because Play store won't open or do anything when connected to my wifi. it is however functional when wifi is turned off and only mobile data is active. Things i've tried (and still not working)
1. Cleared cache and data for Play store, google services, download manager and download. 2. uninstalled updates 3. Have tried seeing if anything has disabled and it hasn't, the last app on my 'all' is you tube 4. reset my phone to factory settings.
I feel like a pleb as I had this problem when I first got the phone but the clearing cache and data worked then and was fine for weeks but now nothing seems to work.
I have a samsung galaxy grand and I so like it but I am quite disappointed as some of its features aren't working. For instance, the automatic feature for making calls. The instruction says that if you put the device on your ear, it will automatically prompt you to contacts where you can make calls.
So I flashed the latest nightly and stable Cyanogenmod yesterday and it as garbage. Keyboard wasn't working, wifi, lots and lots of problems. Then I flashed Vision-X, which was very nice, however my wifi was not working. I figured it was the kernel so I tried to download one and flash it, didn't fix it. So I went back to stock. Then I came across Omega ROM, which looks amazing. I want it, but I'm afraid that if I go through the flashing process, the wifi won't work again, and to get it back to stock is time consuming. I came across this page: [REF] GALAXY S4 (I9500/I9505) GSM / NON-HLOS.bin - MODEM'S Collection (Odin/CWM/TWRP) - xda-developers
which is supposed to let you flash one of those files in odin and it corrects the wifi issue. The problem is, how in the world are you supposed to know what version to get? There's like 50 listed. I have a Sprint SPH-L20, which is another thing that confuses me, I figured out it's a "I9505", but no where on the box, or in the phone does it say "I9505".
Dialer codes are not working on the Verizon Note 2? I tried em all and none of them work. I am trying to find a way to disable 4G so I can conserve battery, like I was able to on my Bionic, but I am unable to.
my galaxy s2,it is rooted,and i have another problem : the phone restarts by itself and gets stucked in the boot loop, i never flashed a new rom ,it is running the stock rom,Someday i needed to factory reset the phone so i rebooted into recovery mode (power + home button +vol up) ,. I booted into recovery mode but the power button does NOT react as 'select' button although it works just fine for power on and off. I select a function and press [power] an the first line becomes the selected. pushing it again just flashed the screen. But pressing it long turns the phone off,and even after the factory reset from phone directly(with out going to recovery mode)
I have recently upgraded to Android 4.0.4 on my samsung galaxy s2. I used the ressurection remix rom 1.9
I have noticed that although holding down the menu button will go to google search from the main screen, it no longer works in certain apps that used to work before the upgrade. In fact it doesnt seem to work in any apps.
Yesterday I was having fun trying out the secret codes (like *#*#4636#*#*) and tried out the touch screen code. Then clicked on update (firmware).
Then the touch was not working. I tried taking out battery and putting it back on. Tried factory reset after backing up data with Kies. Tried rooting the simplest way. Tried to flash using Odin with a recovery and pit file. Still nothing is working.
Can I test Android smartphones applications on Samsung Galaxy Tab? Let's say I want to develop Android applications for HTC,and I only have Galaxy. Can I simulate smaller resolutions on Galaxy to see how it would work on HTC?
I buy cable for tv out for my galaxy s i9000 bet it was not working just big noise and i could see something on tv from my phone but almost nothing it was really bad then i desided to buy samsung cable from ebay original for this phone but it was the same, and couple of my friends have the same problems so what we are doing wrong.
This video is working perfectly on my Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant stock video player, however the audio is not working at all, can somebody please point out why? im a noob with all these codecs and stuff and dont know what the SGS can play and cant
Has anyone else noticed that on the Galaxy S, the Wifi will stop to respond after a few disconnects? I usually have wifi off to save battery, but now and then some application will turn it on and after I stop it (either using the message bar or settings) the wifi stops working. Under settings it will be greyed out and say something like "Shutting down..." but you cannot click it again, turn it on or anything else. A reboot works but thats kind of annoying.
On android-hilfe.de I just found: OpenGl ES Auf dem I7500!! Ja es geht wirklich - Android-Hilfe.de
I tested it and it works - i can run opengl games fluently on my samsung galaxy now.
For those of you who can't read German: you can get opengl hardware acceleration working on the samsung galaxy on II5 and probably any other version by copying the libhgl.so from a htc G1 device.
Unfortunately the only way to legally do this is probably by owning a HTC device, but there are some HTC system/recovery images available for download, from the HTC website. Be sure to download the OTA image as it contains the files directly and you can just copy the libhgl.so file directly.
Root your phone, remount the /system filesystem as read/write, then copy the HTC libhgl.so to /system/lib/libhgl.so . Reboot phone.
had the phone for 2 weeks now no problems, last night my battery was drained fully so i charged it fully. now swipe isnt working. when i press the swipe button (the option button at the bottom left) it freezes and force closes. tried rebooting and no luck. i can see the blue line when i swipe but no letters pop up whats goin on?
