General :: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 - Cannot Get Notifications On Home WiFi
Jan 21, 2014
Lately I have realized that at home I don't get notifications from most of my apps. I have notifications turned on and I do get them pushed to me when I go to other places with high-speed internet. The internet at home isn't blazing fast but isn't slow at 13 Mbps. I don't get notifications for most games and some other apps, like hangouts, where I could end up missing out on a conversation because I never got the notification. I get notifications about new emails and updates from the Play Store but that's about it. Is there something I can try or do to fix this problem and get my notifications?
My phone only displays notifications from certain apps (FB Messenger, Snapchat, Tinder, maybe a few others) when it is connected to wifi. When I am not connected to wifi, I can still use these apps and send/receive messages, but when I get home and connect to wifi again I receive all the notifications I should have gotten earlier in the day. Email, SMS, WhatsApp, and BBM all deliver notifications just fine over the mobile network.
Potentially relevant info... - Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini - Android version 4.2.2 - sync and mobile data are enabled - "restrict background data" is NOT enabled for the affected apps - connected to Koodo (Telus) network in Canada
Only had my phone a day or so and am receiving email and whatsapp notifications but nothing for facebook and twitter. Have uninstalled/reinstalled, rebooted my phone, ensured that the notifications box is ticked in the application manager and in apps themselves.
I have a Samsung Galaxy S 2 and I recently installed MIUI on my device. Didn't like it, so I flashed it back to the stock settings and now my Wifi isn't functioning. It will turn on and scan for networks for a few seconds, then turn off automatically.
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.
So recently I have started to have a problem with my Wi-Fi Connection on my Samsung Galaxy Blaze 4G , So I would be on the Wi-Fi fine then each time i click on a video it asks for "Complete action using" then my Wi-Fi instantly stops and the Wi-Fi icon isn't there anymore . After i clicked one of the option on complete action using, couple seconds later my internet comes back.
So problem is that each time i try to watch a video my Wi-Fi Stops when on Web. But then I can watch videos through the Youtube application.
Also Another weird thing is that after the Wi-Fi reconnects My "Use packet data" setting is auto enabled again.
On my Samsung galaxy s3 I have 2 flashing arrows under my wifi bar.. I went to Samsungs chat and the first time I was told that it was because I was transfering data but I wasn't. She then told me to do a soft reset so it did and it still continued. Then I went back on because the first person told me it would eat up my data if I didn't break the transfer. The second lady said that all that means is that it's showing that it's connected to my router and is normal and won't use my data..
I have a project where I want to create my own custom sensor to be used with my Android device. Im hoping on using a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wifi but I can get hold of basically any available tablet if that makes solving the problem easier. The solution is just for me so it can be heavy modifications to the Android OS if needed (preferable not though...)
The custom sensor is going to be connected with the device using bluetooth. I have currently a setup with my sensor connecting nicely and sending the values into my custom Android app but it is just my app and not any app on the device. I want to take it to the next level by basically overriding some of the built in sensors with my values to enable me to play any game that is meant to be controlled by the accelerometer my custom sensor.
How to change on a system level the constant variable SENSOR_TYPE to a public variable which I then can either override or change permanently to point to my sensor function instead. As I understand this it would need a fully custom ROM. So when any game call for example
I just bought one Samsung Galaxy S wifi 4.0 and would like to know if any possibility to upgrade the "default" Android version 2.2.2 (Froyo) to a newer one.
It seems that a couple of applications out there do not run on this version. For example NDrive 11 says its incompatible with this and a HTC running 2.3.4 is compatible. Maybe the version or something else?
I already ran Kies and it says the version 2.2.2 is the latest.
To get the car and desk home apps you see on the advertisment, you need market enabler, set it to us tmobile(long press the provider to set), then search in the market for 'desk home samsung vibrant' and 'car home samsung vibrant'.
how to change bottom icons on home screen (e.g. phone,contact,message,internet,apps) i think its called the bottom dock its for new Samsung Galaxy S3 4G i cant find any forum or vids on youtube, i can find plenty on how to change the icons on the lock screen but thats not what i looking for.
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've got new phone (Samsung Galaxy Express 2 ) and when i try to connect to internet with wifi it just writes that i have no connection.Yesterday it started working for a while but after i restarted my wifi router it just stopped.Wifi works on my laptop and tablet but not on phone.
I just got my first android phone, a samsung galaxy s4 and love it. I have been able to set it up as I want for the most part. One thing I cant figure out though, how do you set google account sync to only sync over wifi? I know you can go into the data section and choose which apps can update over wifi, but I don't see one for google account sync. Is it called google services or something? In the google plus I was able to set it to update photos and videos over wifi, but what about the calendar, app data, drive etc.?
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".
Got a Samsung Galaxy Nexus that I continually use for Wifi Tethering. The only problem is that it tends to run hot and sometimes reboot since it's continually being used. Is there a way I can fix it with an app? Or is there a cooling dock I can use (like Laptops use)?

Just wondering I have the above phone, and ever since I bought it, I cant seem to configure my personal hotspot SSID and passcode, without it defaulting back to AndroidAP and default passcode I enter in my desired SSID and passode, click save, and if I go to conect on laptop it will come up ok, but only that one time. If I literally go straight back into the configuration of wifi hotspot, it has defaulted back to AndroidAP
I ordered Asphalt 8 and i went to Multiplayer mode I found its only playable uaing wifi not the 3G I dont have wifi , and even the 3g is faster than my wifi Is there any way to play asphalt via 3g not wifi ?
after changing some router settings (like the number of the channel) my SGS2 on 4.0.3 ICS doesn't connect anymore. WiFi itself is working fine, except the AP of the router i changed. Deleting all AP information and reentering all WPA2 data will change nothing. In my eyes the phone is not forgetting AP data completely when you try to delete an AP entry.
