HTC Desire :: Shuts Down When Running Applications And Internet
Aug 25, 2010
the phone is top notch but every now and then it will just shut down and then will take bout half hour to get back on as when turn on it shuts down again and again. It mainly happens when running apps and internet, say i got internet n fb running then i start typing a text it will shut down for no reason i havnt a clue why this is happening. Getting so frustrating as i love the phone but i cant deal with it. Also why cant i browse the main browser using my 3g connection only with wi-fi but i can use opera mini using 3g ? thanks alot !
My internet connection seems to be running pretty slow atm. It keep jumping from 3G+ which is really fast then back to G which is pretty slow, Why is this? Is there a way to make it 3G+ all the time and be stable or is it common for it to flip through them its changing like every few seconds.
I have a sprint Samsung Galaxy S3, rooted...Int he past week or 2, whenever I am in an application (Chrome, Yahoo, GTalk, etc) The screen will sometimes randomly shut off. It just goes black, i can still touch and use whatever app I was in (I can hear the sounds of clicks, etc) and the buttons stay lit on the bottom. When I press the lock button it makes the lock noise. When I then unlock it, i get to the lock screen with no problems. If I unlock into whatever app I am running, the screen will almost immediately shut off again, or sometimes after a few seconds, or sometimes it waits until i touch the screen. BUT, if I unlock into a system app (messages, phone, homescreen, etc) the problem doesnt happen. I have tried adjusting all the display settings for screen timeout, rebooting, battery out, killing services, etc and nothing seems to work.
for some reason my phone keeps shutting off. the only times it shut off on me is when i've been using either: google maps, browse the internet, sprint family locator, yellow pages, i think that's it.i've also had problems with my phone not staying asleep. i've posted about it before, but never found a resolution.i have wiped, reflashed, PLENTY of times.
Went to use my phone today, not only would it not connect to the internet via mobile data connection or WiFi, when it did it had removed more than half of my previously installed apps. Eventually they all 'turned up' but one, Soundhound had reinstalled twice and both times the paid version.
1. Can u use the Desire GPS without sim or internet connection 2. Are there apps for reading excel files or pdf files 3. Does the OLED screen leave finger prints 4. how does the OLED screen compare to a iphone 4 or HTC HDA2 5. What is the desire like for syncing with vista or windowblows 7.0 6. Can the desire run DIVX files
From last one day, I am suffering from this problem, my HTC Desire HD rooted and installed with ViperDHD keeps restarting as it soon as it boots. The phone bootscreen shows, finishes, even the android home screen appears but just for one second and then goes blank and restarts. This all started happening, when I had connected my phone with my computer and a restart occurred, instantaneously.
I have tried everything, Factory reset, full wipe, keeping battery out for 10 minutes, removing SIM and SD card, formatting SD card, even re-installling 2 different ROMs with Full wipe but the problem still persists.
While I do realize it might be a hardware issue but it is impossible go give it up to any service center because it is an imported piece without any warranty. I won't give up that easily. Here are some of the stuff I tried, and some observations I made Device shuts off at bootscreen if there is no SD card, (I doubt that SD card is an essential thing).
I can only boot into recovery where adb logcat or adb bugreport don't work. I tried adb shell find -f | log. None of the log files seemed useful. Is there something I can find here?
What kind of hardware issue might it be? Is it possible to debug it? and what causes shut down? and since I am have some knowledge of computers at lower level, C and linux, is it possible to hack into the kernel and perhaps correct what might be wrong?
I have in my car a hands-free kit for a Qtek 9100 which has work fine for years with the Qtek. I bought a mini to micro USB adapter so that I could use the kit with the new Desire HD, but when I plug the new phone to the micro USB adapter the Desire HD just shuts down and I have to remove and replace the battery to get it working again.
With increasing frequency, pressing the power button on my HTC desire running Froyo only dims the screen, it doesnt put it into standby. This never happened until recently but is now quite a regular thing. In order to put it into stand by i have to press the button several times before it decides to do what I'm telling it to.
Right basically you can find the UK T mobile internet settings on the T mobile website. On the Speed Test app, the highest speeds I get are 1.8m/bs downloads and around 500kpbs upload. However, those were at off peak times at night etc (probably when nobody is using the net).Generally I get anything from 0.3 m/bs to 0.9 m/bs though. Lately I've been experiencing some inconsistent internet speeds and reconnection attempts so for I've gone back to the default settings. Tbh though I'm not sure if it makes much difference.
I had an application on my home page that looked like a a small green cylinder. it told me how many applications were currently running. if i clicked on it, it would tell me what applications were running in the background. now the green bar is gone and i can't seem to figure out how to get it back. not sure if it was a standard android application or something i downloaded. can anyone help me figure out how to get it back?
Is there any program witch turns on/off Internet connection? Because some programs use Internet automatically and this cost me some money. And I need program witch repeat SMS notification (vibration and sound) in periods like 5min. I found "Alertsms" but I don't like it become it looks like I get two messages instead of one (one from peaople who is in my phone book and another from unknown number).
I'm new to the world of android so trying to get used to all the stuff on here. Whats the difference between using specific apps e.g. facebook / ebay etc or just going on the web and visiting these places? Do they use a lot less internet allowance? Any other advantages / disadvantages?
I am trying to connect to a network that uses proxy. I have entered the manual settings in the network and I am able to browse on the browser as well without any issues. However, no internet applications like playstore whatsapp or youtube works for me.
Any way I can assign proxy for all the applications on the phone.
I was screwing around with battery usage today and here is what I found as the bottom line. Now this doesn't mean this is the same for you, but I'm sure you all know that. I changed nothing on the evo besides Gtalk automatically signing me in. (No skimping if you would) and I was at a golf club all day yesterday and had perfect signal strength. My EVO went 23hrs on one charge with decently heavy use. When I went back home (bad signal, 1 bar, no 3G) my phone's battery lasted just about 13hrs. Therefore I think TWS is one of the biggest battery culprits. Hence why if you complain to Sprint, they send you a free Air Ave like they did for me and many others.
I just bought a Legend and am loving it for the most part. But I have one big problem - apps are not accessing the internet when not on WiFi. I have Vodafone, and the EDGE connection (we don't have 3G in India yet) works in the Internet browser, but none of the apps (twitter, facebook, nytimes, kayak) work on EDGE. Is there something I need to change in permissions or settings? All these apps have full internet access in their permissions, so I don't get why they are not working.
AS per the question, how many of the HTC apps require you to be online to do anything? Like are they all weather, sat nav, or use the internet to show you locations, and such? I'm just wondering how many apps will require me to use GPRS when outside of a WiFi zone, which would be quite a lot of places really!
It's a Motorola Xoom running Android 4.1.2. The issue it's having is that even though the tablet is connected to the internet none of the apps (play store, YouTube, etc) will connect. They all say 'no internet connection'. The only way I know the tablet is actually connected to Wi-Fi is that the internet browser still works. This might be unrelated to the issue but every single website I go to it gives me the warning 'Security warning: There are problems with the security certificate for this site'. Sometimes I will have to hit cancel 10 times before the warning goes away.
this is something I can fix without doing a complete reset because there are pictures and stuff I don't want to lose. Since I can't connect to google play I can't back them up to am app like dropbox either.
I have been trying moving applications to SD card but failed when I go to terminal and use CP command. Is anyone done applications to SD card and if yes how can somebody share some details please. A to Z. My hero is already root, just running out of space on my internal memory. Its sad that HTC don't allow to put applications on SD. Love to have an option to ask where do you want to install the apps?
When I first boot up the phone and check the memory (after shutting down all the apps I don't want running) I notice my phone has about 220-250 MB free after leaving the phone on for about 2-3 hours, with no activity on my part, that number gets smaller and smaller. I just rebooted my phone again because it was down to 125 MB free with no applications running.
Also, "Android System" is consuming 65% of my battery life. I realize that number is inaccurate after a fresh reboot so I played with the phone for a good 4 hours running apps and such, so that I could get a good test of how much the OS is eating up in comparison to other apps. 65% is a bit much no?
Every so often I check my memory with Advanced Task Manager and I see certain applications running in the background and my available memory has dropped quite a bit. Now I am using the HTC Incredible so I still have about 127 MB free, however what concerns me the most is why the programs are even launching themselves in the first place. I could see some application having to start themselves, like a twitter client or an email client, however one of the programs that seems to be launching itself is the eBay app. I installed the app in case I wanted to view an ebay listing however I never use the program and it still seems to launch itself. Is this an example of a poor application design (i.e. ebay app) or is there some other reason these programs are launching themselves?
I have advanced task killer and auto killer installed but I still have random apps still running in the background that I don't even have running, even in the background or memory! Is there anything I can do as I feel that this is killing my battery life!
Scenario: I turn my phone on and multiple applications are running in the background. I run Advanced Task Killer and close all applications in the background. I respond to a text message and all of a sudden FRING and QIK are running again? Why? Can settings be adjusted manually or do I need to Force Stop in Settings - Applications every time I turn on the phone?
I wrote a simple hello c program. I pushed the program to either Android Emulator or a device. When I run it, however, I got "./hello: not found" message. I ls-ed it and it's right there. Is this purposely disabled?
I am looking at which HTC phone to buy. I need WiFi to connect to the Internet at home. I also want PUSH email, my understand of PUSH email is that every half n hour or something I can get the software to go out and search for new emails whilst not having to go into the app and click refresh to see new emails, something which I have to do on my N95. I also need a decent SatNAV, now I know that google navigation is out. I don't know how good it is due to the lack of information out on the Internet. Do all HTC phones drain the battery with GPS? Okay so I need SatNAV, then I also need a phone with decent car cradles, I need something that enables me to rotation it portrait and landscape easily.
Do HTC phones come with a car charger in the box? I also use Gmail a lot, now is there any advantages that I will get from getting a HTC phone and utilizing my Gmail account, as well as calendar. Is there a simple way of getting the phone to sync with outlook such as the tasks and notes you make? Are most applications on Android free? Do the phones last a long time? I like the idea of the kickstand in the Droid incredible I think, that phone is very appealing for me. I am just thinking of getting the phone not for phone and text use but for just Internet and applications.
I have been having 3G issues on my captivate for a while. I can browse the web just fine and email, text, mms all fine. But downloading apps or things that need continuous internet download (i.e. speed test) will start then stop very slowly. The 3G window in the status bar will then flash occasionally but primarily stay unlit. I've hoped that it would continue to download, but after leaving my phone with the screen off for over an hour with an app downloading (only 2mb) gone from 20kb downloaded to 50kb and my battery went from 80 to 30. This happens for every app I attempt to download over 3G (wifi is perfectly fine) no matter what the size. Any idea why it seems to put the download into the background. I'm currently running cognition mod v2.3b2. This has happened on all versions of cognition I've had. I'm pretty sure it happened while I had stock 2.1 also.
Is there an application or a way I can view running apps and processes on my phone from my PC? I have the eris (obviously not rooted but patiently awaiting the good news! good speed devs, good speed) with pdanet 2.41. I have a few applications I would like to mod while running.
I've been researching the OS a bit and I can't really tell what happens to programs when you hit the home button to leave them. Do they stay running in the background? After a little bit of time does the system close them out? What happens to them? I have a Sprint Evo and I don't see a way to close them out. I know that battery life can always be helped, and I would hate to leave them running all day just sucking the life out of the phone if they don't have to be.
I noticed that I end up lgoing to advanced task manager and ending a ton of processes and apps constantly. I remember within a few minutes I of just ending a set, there were about 19 more running again. I feel like my phone is bloated right now and all I do is check gmail and google voice and I end up having a bunch of other crap running. My phone was officially charged 100% around 12am EST this morning and its less than 15% now.
I have tried the task killer and that does not seem to stop the applications running. I find that everytime I open and application it I can not close it down it just runs in the background. I have tried force stop and that does not work so what is the answer?The more apps you have running the more it kills the battery life. Apple have released one for the iphone so I can not see it being a big problem to have one for the X10 users or I am missing a trick somewhere?
