General :: Xperia Play - Lost All Saved Settings And WiFi Keeps Turning Off?
Jan 31, 2013
I've been having problems with my Xperia Play. Any app involving the internet would force close after being on it for a certain amount of time, which was no big deal, I would just restart my phone. But then it started happening more frequently, and it would force close sooner, sometimes even force closing as soon as I entered the app. Then this morning, I found that my WiFi was off (which was weird because i don't turn off WiFi at home). I went into my settings to turn it back on, locked my phone, and went to do something else. When I went to check Facebook, I saw that the WiFi wasn't on. So again, I went into settings, but instead of just pushing "Turn on Wi-Fi", I went into "Wi-Fi Settings". I saw that I had lost all my saved WiFi networks (including my house), and it wasn't picking any up, even though I know that there are multiple in my area. I tried re-entering my home WiFi settings, but that still didn't work. I did a few more times, then when it still failed, I restarted my phone and tried again. Still nothing. Then I went out, and was still unable to pick up any WiFi, and any internet based apps still weren't working, even with 3G on.
Can anyone please help me? I have an 8gig micro SD card and none of my contacts, photos, songs or anything will save to it, they save to the phone instead and I don't know how to change it.I would just just the usb but my computer doesn't recognize the phone on my computer either.any help would be much appreciated!
My X10i keeps dropping its WiFi conection. It is in an "excellent" signal strength area. I can now see that is related to my poor mobile network coverage at home. When the mobile network signal drops, then the WiFi turns off and the turns on again, scans and reconnects. When the mobile network connects again (after a minute or two) the WiFi turns off, then on again, scans and reconnects. This cycling is happening every minute or two. Which leads to lots of frustrating network errors. Things improve if I turn off 3G and set network to GSM only.
I see another thread on Locale, but it seems to be focused on it technical shortcomings. I thought a thread about how people are using this app would be helpful.
Now... I use Locale for the following:
- Turning the ringer down when I get to work (obviouse one) - Turning GPS/Bluetooth/wifi on when I plug it in the phone (think car dock) - Turn on Wifi when I get near my known hot spots. - Turn off GPS/Bluetooth/wifi off and turn down brightness when my battery is low.
And the last one is a good one for me...
- I have a GV number. When I call my phone from that number, it turns the ringer volume all the way up and it turns on wifi and GPS. This is my "lost phone aid". It turns on the locating features so I can see where the phone is using iGoogle and Latitude, and I can hear the phone if it is "in the cushions" on vibrate.
love my new x10,beautifully.conquered most probs. but i use sky mobile TV, had it on n97 and worked lush. the x10 seems to de scale it small and stream it in 3gp making it look uguly and distorted on the large screen. laso noticed their no media settings to play with. same with youtube on t-mobile and beep player,and yango, all the streams seem to be limited and the phone not showing the full asspects of the streamed videos.does anyone have any tips or use mobile TV?
Sometimes when unlocking or turning on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the Play Store opens by itself.
Before the store opens, the browser goes to www.ads.glispa.com or www.hastrk2.com which then opens the Play Store. I've tried using those ad detectors but I won't be able to find the culprit without uninstalling my apps to see what's causing it.
I own a BLU Dash 5.0 sim unlocked from factory. It's a double sim model, which I have two sims, since the companies are spanish, let's call them Green Sim and Blue Sim (since that's how they are color coded in my status bar). It is also running Android Jelly Bean 4.2. Here is the problem. Ever since of March 20, a Chinese app appeared on my home screen, I don't know how, something called "Mobile Video" but the content was in a foreign Asian language. I suspect of my friend since I lent it to him for 15 minutes and then it appeared. Aside of this, the wifi and the Green Sim 3G was turned on.
I clicked on the app curious of it was something my friend downloaded from me, but then the app prompted me two options, I didn't know what it said since again, it was Asian. Next, I proceeded to uninstall it, going to my apps list, I was surprised to see another mysterious app, "Push_Down", that was the name. I uninstalled both Mobile Video and Push_Down.
Next day when I woke up, I found two new apps on my homescreen, and again, the Wifi and Green Sim 3G was on.These were Chinese also. I uninstalled them both and found once again "Push_Down" in my apps. After I uninstalled them, I thought the problem was finally fixed. Wrong again. Since this event, about every 2 or 3 hours, my Wifi and Green Sim 3G turn on automatically, but haven't downloaded anything new, one, because I have no credit left, and two, I have no internet at home. Ever since, daily I wake up, the same problem, the Wifi and 3G are on. I checked my SD Card, I checked my Phone Storage, both with 2 Antivirus (Avast!, and Lookout Mobile) and with Addons Detector. Surprisingly, nothing has appeared.
My last option is what hurts me most, to reset my phone, which I don't want to do since I have lots of apps installed, progress made with certain games and etc, etc. Also, I am not a root user, so I haven't rooted and won't root my phone.
I have an ACER touchscreen that is running Android, I am using it for a display and want to disable WiFi so it can not be connected to the internet unless I want it to. There will be multiple people looking at things but I want to be the administrator.
lately in my Asus Padfone 2, the wifi keeps turning on automatically without my permission. Everytime I wake the screen from lock screen, I can already see the WiFi indicator is on above, it's driving me nuts I have to turn it back off every once in a while. This only happen lately when I install many apps from Store I can't remember, so I reckon one of those apps is the main cause of this problem. Which in my running apps turns on my WiFi automatically?
Here a list of all my running apps

I wish my phone stops turning on without any notice it drains my battery and my patience.
Anyways, whenever i'm listening to music, and I press the play/pause button on my headset to control my music tracks, my phone turns on. This get's really annoying because every time my phone turns on, it stays on for a few seconds, and this really kills battery life. I've tried lurking around my phone's settings and even my launcher settings.
My phone is a rooted HTC Wildfire S running AOKP custom rom with Nova Launcher Prime. And if it makes any difference, I'm using the "Start" lock screen from the Play Store.
I've had an LG Optimus S phone for a month, that I run almost exclusively on wifi (I have a pay-as-you-go plan for data, so I've turned 3G off so I only use it when I need it). Often at home the wifi turns off when the phone is sleeping... I'll turn on the phone to check something, but then I have to manually click the wifi back on and wait for it.
> LG Optiumus S running Android 2.2 > Wifi sleep policy has been set to "never" so wifi should stay on when phone is sleeping. > 3G set to off > Not rooted - it's "out of the box" > Static IP set to "Off" > No power control apps on phone > My router security is set to "WPA-PSK (TKIP) and WPA2-PSK (AES)" ... I _can_ change it to "WPA2-PSK (AES)" only.
I have just noticed that since a few days back my wifi icon in my CM7 nookcolor is not turning green anymore. Apparently the only related problem is gmail is not refreshing automatically. Google Play is working fine and I'm able to browse the internet.
The problem must be related to my wifi, because whenever I connect to my neighbors or my office wifi, it goes green without doing anything special.I read google play requires an specific port open in the firewall, which is not open in mine although Gplay is working without it.
Is there any specific port or another setting that should be enabled in my wifi in order to my nook to connect to Google servers?
My data and Wi-Fi keeps turning itself on. I googled around and found that this problem has been around for a while and a lot of people are complaining about this however there still isn't any solution. Some suggested that ShopSavy was doing this, but I uninstalled it and still got the problem, and I even re-installed the ROM. Looks like this is happening to ICS users only.

Just downloaded Handcent and the settings that I want on it are not saving. For example I want vibrate only when phone is in vibrate mode. That is not working at all. I also disabled notifications in the notification bar and I'm still getting them. Don't know if being on a custom rom (omj) would affect any of this. Pretty annoying though and was wanting to know if anyone else is having this sort of problem. I also rebooted the phone and no dice still.
I was having problems with the play store and I was told to clear data from the Play Sore and GoogleServicesFramework app. That didn't work and I got a server error. Also my signal bars and wifi/3G icon are not turning blue as usual when connected. I feel disconnected from the play store .
I recently purchased an Evo and have spent the last day getting it up and running, customized etc. I have a few questions I haven't been able to find the answers to yet.
1. Following instructions to conserve battery life, I turned off the email notification light and sound, but every time I get an email it chimes and the light starts blinking. I have reset the phone after making the changed, and when I go into setting it still says the light/sound are off.
2. Similar to #1, I turned off the haptic feedback, but I am still getting it when I use the keyboard. My phone says haptic feedback is off, but when I use the keyboard in the web browser or my contacts, I get the little rumble for each keystroke
3a. Is there any non-warranty breaking way to customize what apps are opened on start up? Every time I turn my phone on I have to go in and taskiller all the sprint nascar, tv, etc crap.
3b. Clicking on taskiller throughout the day, apps I have killed always come back, even when I don't use them, don't have their widget running, etc. This happens with 3rd party apps like tweetdeck, and stuff built into the phone like "news" "music" and others. Is there a way to stop this? Does this stuff (and widgets in general) drain the battery life that much at the end of the day?
4. In the tv ads and in the store and reviews online, everyone made a big deal about Swype and how great it is. All the reviews of it was a big reason why I decided to not get the Epic since everyone was saying they never even touched the keyboard after getting the hang of Swype. Now I have my Evo and I find out that I cant get swype at all? So people suggest a different, similar app, but that one isn't available in the market any more either? What gives? I assumed swype was built into the phone in the first place. I feel a little swindled on this point
5. I have a second domain name attached to my gmail account (i.e. I started out with firstname.lastname@example.org, then later bought email@example.com for work). When I am sending emails in gmail, I can choose which domain I want the FROM: field to show. Is there a way to do this on my Evo? I am using the Mail app, not the gmail one (although I could always switch?)
Coming from Windows Mobile with Sense, I am new to android and unfamiliar with the default Android interface and would like to check it out. If I have saved my custom scene, then disable Sense to experiment with the Android launchers, will my custom settings still be saved when I re-enable sense?
Does anyone have an issue with their Media Volume being set to 0 and when you adjust it, either when in an app (YouTube, mp3 player, RingDroid) or via Settings>Sound>Volume, it still won't adjust? I can't set the volume for Media no matter how I try. It visibly shows that I raised it in Settings, but then I back out and go back in to check, it's 0 again.
When I am in RingDroid, for example, I hit the volume button, the pop up for Media Volume shows at 0, and won't let me raise it with the volume buttons same for YouTube, etc. I know previously, I've reset the phone to fix it, but this is ridiculous. I don't know what's causing it other than possibly putting my phone on vibrate while at work, but that shouldn't affect the Media Volume, just Ringer and Alerts. And before anyone suggests it, I took the phone Off vibrate mode and still get the same result.
