I can't use WiFi at work (a uni) as it needs a proxy address. Has anyone found an app to allow proxy settings input? It's a real bad failing for such a great device. I know Android 2.1 doesn't support as standard. Am gutted by their inability to work on this
I m running ICS 4.0.3 and I am having work wifi with proxy. I have also installed proxy droid and I am able to download apps and browse internet through my wifi. BUT THE PROBLEM is not all apps are having access to Wifi. i.e. Gtalk is not able to sign in while using internet from wifi.
I'm having some trouble with my Uni's WiFi in that it needs to use a manual proxy address to access properly. I've had a wee fiddle with many things and had a look on the marketplace but there doesn't seem to be anything that can help? (I'm still running 2.1 un-rooted btw) Heres what I'm dealing with - Web Proxy - University of Strathclyde
I know that android 2.2 also does not support proxy and its really a great problem for people like me who study in schools. I heard that there are custom roms that support proxies (cyanogen rom). There is no proper information on this. I just want to know how good it is for HTC desire.
I just got my new Droid X (2.2-rooted) and I have downloaded the wifi tether app from android-wifi-tether and I want to set up a secure, private connection in general for my laptop and phone as well as for downloading torrents on my laptop through my phone. I tried using the TOR/Orbit app but it's not working. I use Peerblock/Vuze on my laptop that will be handling my torrents but am not sure if that will keep me private over my wifi tether... I would think not. Please help me if you can. Any suggestions on configurations that would help me do this? I also just heard something about Torrent-Fu... not sure what that is yet but maybe it will help as well.
I'm having to move networks from Virgin back to o2.
I'll be returning the Virgin Desire and just received the o2 Desire today.
Setting it up went well, accounts added etc. but I'm having trouble with the WiFi - I can't disable it, every time I do it switches itself back on - I'm assuming that's something to do with the o2 firmware and it wouldn't be a big deal if the WiFi worked properly
I set it to install all my apps, but wouldn't over Wifi, only over 3G, I can't browse the internet or check for software updates in settings... I've got 2 email accounts set up - Gmail & Exchange (just as I did on the other handset), and it's just told me it can't sync to the Exchange server now though it seems to have been fine so far...
Yet I've just sent myself a test email over WiFi successfully - it appeared straight away in the webmail and then back on the handset, so some part of it's working...
It seems possible to setup a shared folder but I can't find any directions on it and none of my current shares show on the phone. Does any know how to do this or if it's even possible. I would love to transfer stuff without plugging in the phone.
is there a way to set up my email (not gmail) to only download automatically over wifi? I receive a lot of work emails and it uses data unnecessarily when it downloads on my phone when I am at work. Ideal will be to only download when I change the setting. Don't want to turn of data completely because then all the other apps stop working too (WhatsApp, facebook etc.)
Is there any way to set up WiFi so that the phone automatically connects to a saved WiFi signal? Example. when I walk into my house my phone auto detects and switches to WiFi without me going into settings?
I bought my Xperia x10 mini yesterday, and one of the first things I did was to set it up for WiFi in my house (which I already have 2 laptops and a stationary PC connected to). Setting it up was easy and quick, but my phone doesn't find the network, not even if I am standing right beside the router. I have tried to restart the WiFi connection, restart my phone, delete and re-add the home connection, but the phone still doesn't connect to the network.
The network's SSID isn't broadcasted for security reasons, could this be the problem? When I search for networks, it doesn't find any 'unnamed' networks like the windows pcs do. (which is normally the one I need to connect to.) Is there something wrong with my hardware? Or my software (my phone is completely up-to-date)? (Except broadcast the SSID, which is not an option..)
I decided to try the WiFi hotspot available through 2.2. GREAT! Actually worked quite a bit better than I thought it would. Only trouble is, ... now I'm back at home, it fails to connect to the home network.
I haven't been to this forum in a long time, as I've been traveling. I have a 4 gb card at the moment, and I'm planning to get a 16gb. How do I set up the new card? I've got a2sd+ with an ext partition, how can I transfer that without losing my apps or my data?
i recently added hotmail account and then removed it from my phone - but on the home screen it is still showing that i have emails to read i have tried to re-add the email account but a message comes up stating that it is already added.
My 1st android phone so pretty new to it all, managed to get my gmail working but cant get hotmail working. Also another question is can I get the contacts just to display only phone contacts rather then all phone, facebook and email contacts?
I'd like to use a specific graphicpicture as the wallpaper for my Desire.
I tried resizing the JPG to 800x480 which I was told is the correct sizing for the Desire, and transferred it to the phone's SD Card.
The Photo app shows the picture in its full resolution and correct aspect ratio, which looks great.
The problem comes when I select the image for use a my wallpaper, I'm presented with a square box that is wanting to select which portion of the image to use as the wallpaper. I can resize the box, but only so far as the width of the display and the aspect ratio is locked and doesn't fit the screen proportions.
If I select the image this way, only a portion of the image is used as the wallpaper and it is stretched, which looks horrible.
I'm assuming it's something to do with the 'stitching' together of the background for all of the home screens, but has anyone managed to work out what's required of the original image (size, resolution, aspect ratio etc.) to enable a good looking background on the Desire that is fixed across each of the homescreens, i.e. doesn't scroll?
Or is there an app that manages this? I've taken a good look at the market, but nothing seems to work with the Desire2.1
I have some phone contacts who are linked to their Google and Twitter accounts. The photo of the contact (when I get a call) is set to the one in the Twitter, I am trying to set it to the one used by Google. Is there a way for me to do that?
I'm trying to set up the exchange sync to sync my work email to my Desire.I go through the setup and fill in the details as required but when I go to finish the setup I always get a message saying 'Failed to create the account. Please try again later'. I've tried lots of times but always get the same message. I've tried varying the information I've put in to see if that helps but no joy.Has anyone else had this problem?
I have just installed Donut version 1.6 on my HTC Dream. The install went smoothly. But when I try to start my WiFi I get the "unable to start wifi" message. Never had a problem in 1.5. I see wpa_supplicant doesn't have access to others, I tried changing the permissions of the directories and wpa_supplicant.conf file to 777 but they keep getting set back again so that other doesn't have access. Do I need to set up a special user?
I just got my HTC Desire on Friday and I have been having trouble setting up the POP3/IMAP mail program. I have several email addresses and wanted to put them all on this but so far have only managed to get 1 to work.The address I got to work was a @hotmail.com address.
I am having some emails issues with Desire. Apart from this the phones amazing. I can send from the ntl account (set up outgoing with gmail as heard problems unless using it from home router) but I can't set up my ntl account at all for incoming.
I have two Gmail accounts setup on my phone, both of which use Google Apps, so the addresses are (at) example1.com and (at) example2.com as opposed to ending in gmail.com. I use my first account to sync my contacts, calendar and mail, and my secondary account just syncs mail. I then added an old @gmail.com account for no particular reason and now it won't let me delete it and gives this reason: "This account is required by some applications. You can only remove it by resetting the phone to factory defaults".
When I first added the account, by default it didn't turn on mail sync. I have left that unchecked, and also left contacts and calendar sync unchecked. Therefore, this account hasn't yet interacted with any apps/programs. Is the reason I can't delete this @gmail.com account because Android recognizes it as a 'proper' Gmail address? I have searched for similar threads, but ultimately the discussions there seem to focus on different problems.
I have setup and tested my personal email on my new HTC Desire and all seems fine, then when I get home and manually check my email on my Outlook client I seem to have received about 4 emails but none to my phone. When I go into my settings on my phone, the SMTP server settings for mail have changed. For example when I set it up it should be say: POP Server: mail.neilsdomain.com POP Username: email@example.com SMTP Server: smtp.ispname.co.uk SMTP Username: firstname.lastname@example.org I test this and all works wonderfully and mail flows into my phone. Then for some unknown reason when I come out and go back in the SMTP settings have changed by themselves to: SMTP Server: smtp.ispname.co.uk SMTP Username: email@example.com. Why would the SMTP Username change?
Like we all know, we can use another App to do the same things. Example we can send and receive sms using Messages Application by HTC or we can use Handcent SMS. My question is, how to find and setup and configure default App? Example for browser I choose Opera Mini. Which menu we can do it?
