HTC Droid Eris :: Screen No Longer Turning Off / Only Dimming

Dec 12, 2009

My Eris has been working fine with the screen timeout. It is set to go off at 1 minute. But since last night, it's only dimming the screen now. It will not turn off unless I press the end call button. It hasn't been doing that, so I'm not sure what's going on.

HTC Incredible :: Screen Dimming And Phone Locking

Jul 28, 2010

I recently made the switch from a BlackBerry Curve to the HTC Incredible. One of the "features" of my Curve that I'm having trouble duplicating on the Incredible is this: I was able to set a timeout to lock the phone and a separate timeout to blacken the screen. That is, if the screen went black after 30 seconds of inactivity, the screen wouldn't necessarily lock until 30 minutes of inactivity. I have increased the screen timeout on my Incredible, but the screen doesn't dim at all. I tried installing the No Lock application, but now I can't find a way to manually lock the phone if necessary.

Samsung Moment :: Screen Dimming Vs. Timeout

Apr 15, 2010

Is there a way to separate the dimming vs. sleeping timeout? It appears that if I set the screen timeout to any value, it dims first, then sleeps. I have the "never sleep when charging" setting checked, and what it does when charging is the screen dims, but the moment does not sleep. Is there a way to prevent the dimming while charging?

General :: Cyanogenmod - Why Can't Turn Off Screen Dimming

Apr 23, 2012

I have recently installed cyanogen on my desire and have found the mod to be an absolute joy to use. The one irritation however has been the automatic screen dimming. Every 6 or 7 seconds or so the screen dims itself. This can become very annoying when reading long messages or any other text. Surely there must be a simple solution to turn off this automatic dimming setting?

Certain apps disable auto-sleep while they're open.Is there any way to force my device (Nexus 7) to sleep in these apps after a certain time.

HTC Droid Eris :: Way To Prevent Swype To Offer English?

Mar 8, 2010

Swype is really great, BUT: Sometimes I need to write in a language other than English. I found this nearly impossible with swype. It keeps trying to force English words on me. There should be an easy way to prevent swype to offer English (or any) words altogether. I want to be able to use Swype so it takes whatever word I swyped (swope?) in. There should be an easily accessible toggle control to allow this.

HTC Droid Eris :: Apps That Prevent Phone From Sleeping

Dec 6, 2009

As I continue to downlaod and try new apps, I notice that some of the permissions that some of them have are/is: "Prevent phone from sleeping". I didn't think much about it, but after conditioning my phone...for a few days I was getting around 11% awake time, now after a few of these apps after a recharge this AM I am showing 26%...before the charge my awake time was very high again. I always use Adavanced Task Killer after messing with the phone, 9/10 trials.

HTC Droid Eris :: Auto Turn Off / On GPS

Mar 9, 2010

This seems like a simple concept, but when I open up and close a program that uses GPS, why can't its just automatically turn on the hardware when it needs it and turn it off when you close out of the app? When I start any navigation program its ask for me to turn on the GPS, I go to that page, select to turn it on, then it ask about my location/911 setting. Why can't there be a setting to just have it do it automatically, it can't be that hard right?

HTC Droid Eris :: Auto-add To Home

Dec 6, 2009

I got my Eris only a few days after playing with an iPod for the first time.Besides the widgets feature, there is an aspect of the iPod interface that I like better than Android.I like how the "Home" of an iPod lists all of the installed apps, but you can move them to different pages to categorize them.With Android, I go through the market and add a bunch of apps, but then I have to go add each one to one of the Home pages. Does anyone know of a Home interface that auto-adds apps when they are downloaded?

Motorola Droid :: 2.2 Screen Auto Rotation?

Aug 16, 2010

Since the 2.2 update my screen auto rotation is horrible. When I want it upright, it goes sideways. WHen I hold the phone sideways, it flips the other way. Apps that I open seem to always start out sideways even when the phone is upright. I turn it around, nothing happens. If it does rotate back, it is so delayed you think it is not working. It never seems to be the direction I want it, getting very frustrating and annoying to keep flipping the damn phone around all the time to try to get it right. I sure hope the new FRG22 update, if it ever comes, can fix this problem. So far, 2.2, besides flash, has been a big disappointment for me.

HTC Droid Eris :: Contacts Not Auto-filling

Jun 23, 2010

I am running 2.1 V3 and every time I try and formulate a new text message using the standard messaging application, the contacts field will not auto-populate suggestions when I begin typing someone's name (they used to come down in a drop-down list which I could select from). It has always done this before and I don't really know what changed. In order to send a message to anyone, I have to now click on the "person" icon next to the "To" field and wait an unbearably long time for the list to come up and then scroll to the contact I want and checkmark the person. I have tried restarting the phone...battery pulls...etc. Aside from a factory reset.

HTC Droid Eris :: Email Never Auto Syncs

Jul 24, 2010

My girlfriend and I both have Eris's which we got back in March. Up until the 2.1 OTA update we both received our emails without fail. I have a Live, Hotmail, and Gmail account and she has a Live and an Exchange school account. Once we got the update we both started noticing that we weren't getting our emails on our phones. I found the manual sync button and since then we have both been just using that to receive our email, but it is getting on my nerves now as I have gotten important emails late on a few occasions. This problem happens no matter what network we are connected to, either 3g or my home WiFi. Has anyone found a fix for this other than using an app like K9? I have a lot of apps on my phone and don't really have room to spare, and I like the stock mail app so please don't suggest using another app.

HTC Droid Eris :: 2.1 Auto Starting Apps

Mar 8, 2010

I loaded ATK onto 2.1 which tells me that more apps are running than the built in proc manager does. So I killed everything except clock. Put the phone to sleep, and came back an hour later to find that Clock, Voice Dialer, MP3 Store, Settings, Shopper, Google Voice, Mail, Messages, chompSMS, and Handcent are all running.

Now, I have sent/received a few texts, so that'd explain the messages, chomp and handcent (still screwing with figuring out which one I want, but only Chomp is set to notify).

This is the third time I've done this today, so can confirm it's no accident. I have never used the MP3 app, don't even have any music on the phone, so no idea why that or for that matter, Voice Dialer, Shopper, or Mail are even running. I've never launched any of them.
