It was thread about forcing your evo to roam on 3g data network. I was able to find threads about the hero but now the Evo. VZW works great at the cabin but sprint I have to walk out to the street and it will not roam onto VZW for some reason.....I have goggled and searched all the usual forums.View 3 Replies View Related
I have been trying to find a way of quickly switching off/on the Mobile Network setting from the home screen. When searching Google there's loads of pages stating that it is an HTC Widget that can be added. I have checked all the widgets on the Desire HD and cannot seem to find it anywhere. I am using an unbranded handset.
The Desire HD manual even states "You can also add widgets that allow you to quickly switch on or off certain settings of your phone, such as Wi-Fi, Mobile Network...".
Does anyone else with an HD handset have this widget ?
I recently read about roaming being free on Tmobile. My phone is set to allow data roaming already. Is there a way to roam on other networks for calls also? I frequently visit areas with no Tmobile coverage.View 2 Replies View Related
I bought my Galaxy recently. It happened I believe while using a couple of apps I downloaded called :
TOGGLE DATA and APNdroid. I wanted to use the function that would allow me to have an icon to turn on and off my 3G network. But something happened, and now I cant seem to know where to turn on 3G internet. WiFi still works fine but I cant seem to find where to get 3G activated? I have since deleted those 2 apps for the time being until I get my connection back.
Can anybody give me the Exact methodology for Connecting through Android Browsers and also Exact way for making the Map application work in my "Proxy Networked Machine"
None of the methodology in the below are working for me....
1. placing the http_proxy in settings.db 2. -http-proxy in console

I don't know how to set this up on my Droid X and Windows computers (XP Pro and Vista on the Wife's). Can someone point me to a tutorial or better yet, lay out here how to do this? I want to sync or move files between the phone and the computers, move pictures and music back and forth and anything else I desire. I see the DLNA and the Media Share stuff...I just don't know exactly how to set this up. I could probably figure it out, but I thought I'd ask because I'm sure someone already has set this up, knows how to direct the rest of us, and ultimately wants to make our lives easier.View 8 Replies View Related
Just tried it to solve the disappearing Gallery picture issue when you connect with a usb cable. SwiFTP works great and easy to set up.View 6 Replies View Related
Hope I said the color right. Tried to find something on the web (asked the seller) etc. but I bought myself ecell mirror screen guard (says on the package invisibleGUARD) It makes the screen almost from every angle and distance violet (Violet stripes). Its no usable for me. White is mostly violet and some colors get too strange like that (Makes my eyes hurt like I would use an old CRT).
Wanted to ask if thats normal and will go away when I dont know what or when . Or thats how it should behave standard (if so wont use a screen protector)? Another question which might have been answered here. Has the HTC Hero (not sprint) also a glass screen making it irrelevant to put any protector anyway? Thanks for any answer and sorry if this was already posted an answered here.
Is the desire HD Screen scratch resistant or does it need a scratch guard?View 8 Replies View Related
I was wondering whether the galaxy needs a scratch guard? I haven't yet taken off the samsung screen film yet (lol). I have an ipod touch and I didnt find the need for a scratch guard or screen protective film. I also read that capacitive touch screens are made so as to have easy moving of the finger on the screen. So would a scratch guard reduce its performance? also If i didnt use one, would the screen get any scratches?View 17 Replies View Related
I use to use the application called volume control to set my tones for notification and stuff of the sort, but they seem to have updated it and lost that feature..wtf? so, i was wondering how you set it to the evo..yes, there is prolly another thread on this, and no i did not do my research. Just answer the question and let the thread die.View 7 Replies View Related
I got the Stealth Guard for my son's D2 and I followed the instructions wetting my fingers and the adhesive sode of the plastic. After installing, the screen died and is on but no lights work on the phone to backlight it at all. I powered it off and told him to give it the night... but do you think I ruined the phone now? I'm really upset that I may have ruined my boys new phone. Please tell me that this is something that self fixes!View 2 Replies View Related
The last couple of weeks I have noticed my incoming calls while on the phone are going direct to VM and I'm not getting a waiting alert. Any suggestions before calling Sprint?View 1 Replies View Related
My phone has worked without a problem till last nite. I had a few texts and calls early eve with no issues at all then later on when I tried a text it kept giving me a 'message not sent' message? At first I thought it was an Orange issue so didn't worry too much but this am it's still the same? On doing a bit of investigating I have found I can no longer make calls either. If I try it it doesn't even get too a dial tone it just beeps and returns to the initial call screen.
The phone is showing full signal strength? When I go too call settings>additional settings it shows 'network or SIM error'. I have put my SIM into another phone and it works fine and another SIM that I know works into my Desire and have the same issues so it must be the handset. What do you lot suggest? If I do a factory reset will I loose all my photos etc. from my memory card? Or could I just un-mount it and then reset?
I am experiencing the following problem: I initiate a call, and after hang-up I end up in the "Mobile Network Settings" menu. Has anyone else encountered this? Found only one post about this on google, but its relating to a CyanogenMod ROM. I have stock Andy 2.1 with (non)Sense.View 9 Replies View Related
Some Droid users were having the same call quality issues and someone suggested this fix. Worked for some, not for others. As always, be careful if applying:
I looked and can't find any way to make the backlight stay on for more than 3 seconds after I take the phone away from my head during a call. Even if I am typing in info paying a bill it still goes out. Is there any way to change this or is it a problem with my phone?View 7 Replies View Related
I love my Hero! There is however, one setting on my Blackberry that I did like that I haven't been able to duplicate on my Hero. There was a setting on the Blackberry while sleeping, the phone would be the only thing to ring or make nose. Email notifications, etc., would be silent. Is there any quick setting or app to do this on Hero?View 3 Replies View Related
Well it looks like questions for Google Voice are in threads all over the place so I guess I'll start another one here. Here goes. I'm setting up my GV account and plan on selecting a GV number. Now will people calling me on my new number see any difference billing-wise compared to my current cell number? I know this doesn't really apply to cell phones but what about someone calling from a land line? The GV number I am selecting will be based out of the city I live in. Will that equate to the city or area of my current cell number?View 7 Replies View Related
I rooted my phone and I have Aloysius 2.0.8 2.1 update rom . Everything has been working great until today when I started get the error code 67. Data call failure.

So can anyone help me with this problem without havivg to call Sprint?View 2 Replies View Related
Is there a way to draw on or modify the key guard wallpaper programmatically?It looks simple enough for the home wallpaper, you can use WallpaperManager. But how about for the lock screen wallpaper?View 1 Replies View Related
Does anyone know where the value for "Use incoming call volume for notifications" is stored? This is a checkbox found in the Ringer Volume settings that allows you to set a separate notification volume and incoming call volume. I would like to programatically toggle the value, but I can't figure out where it's stored. I looked at Context.AudioManager, I see methods for controlling the notification volume, but I can't find a setting for separating notification volume from incoming call volume.View 2 Replies View Related
I am getting sick and tired of these AT&T/I-Phone commercials bragging about how that network and phone can multi-task on the web during a phone call. For anyone wondering why our incredible DROID doesn't do this...it actually DOES. First of all, it is not the I-Phone that can do this, it is their network. All you have to do on your Droid is turn on the Wi-Fi. With it on and connected you can surf the web, use any internet connected app, etc. all during a phone call.
Not a legal expert or anything, but doesn't this sound a little like false advertising by the "other guys"? Sorry if this has already been posted, just venting more than anything. Comments welcome...
I have been looking at the ConnectivityManager class documented at http://developer.android.com/reference/android/net/ConnectivityManage... .
I would like to know if an Android application can open a network connection (socket) on a specified network interface [on a device supporting multiple network interface types WiFi, Cellular, WiMax etc] ? I am looking for the capability for an application to open a socket on a given type of network for example over WiFi network or over 3G Cellular Data network.
If this is possible in Android, how would I code this requirement within the API Framework ? The ConnectivityManager enables an application to learn about available network connections and currently categorises them as either TYPE_WIFI or TYPE_MOBILE.
There is a member function in the ConnectivityManager class called requestRouteToHost(int,int) [url] which "Ensure that a network route exists to deliver traffic to the specified host via the specified network interface. An attempt to add a route that already exists is ignored, but treated as successful." Sounds like this would install an IP routing table entry to reach a given host via a specified network interface type (WiFi or Mobile). After calling this would it be sufficient for an application to open a socket and connect to the desired destination address ?
Or perhaps the application needs to bind() a socket to a local address of a network interface of the desired type (WiFi or Mobile) Or by setting a socket-level socket option of SO_DONTROUTE ?
I seem to be seeing an issue with the data network access on the EVO. When it happens none of my applications get internet aceess and my mobile network status says "turning on". The only way I've found to fix it is to pull the battery. Any one else seeing this? If so is there a better fix than pulling the battery?View 5 Replies View Related
My eris has always has pretty alright battery life, what I would expect out of a smartphone, if unplugged at 9AM it usually was running on its last leg around midnight. I've had it for over 5 months now, I've always had it activated on alltel, I installed the 2.1v3 leak before the official OTA was out and just lately it seems like there something very wrong with my battery life...
If I unplug my phone at 9AM within the past week and occasionaly check and respond to a text message, my battery had been down to almost 30% by NOON... what?..
I have noticed that if I disable Mobile Network (3g/1x data), the thing lasts all day and some... If I turn mobile network ON, I can't see that I have any network traffic or any apps running in the background that are syncing data at all... I've had google account sync mess up on me before and have to reset my google account because it gets stuck in a syncing loop, but its not doing that, already checked. Very weird.
Anyone thing it could be something wrong in my ##PROGRAM#/##778# provisioning menu, maybe something got changed?.. Maybe it could be do to Alltel's AT&T merger that's happening right now, maybe some 3G tower's radios are turned off or something...
I love my aria, i got it 9/29/10, for free from best buy because my contract expired... but ive already used 20MB and i only bought a 200MB plan... i might go to 2 gigs, but for an alternate, since my billing cycle ends the 28th of every month... if i disable application syncing, and mobile network from the hold menu... can i connect to my home wifi network, and go on the internet from there without that using any of my data plan?View 5 Replies View Related
I'm wondering if, with the G1, it's possible to force the network traffic to pass through the Wifi or through the Cell GSM network. I need to force an application to connect through the tower network to get some login information. Is this possible? Anyone have any ideas as to how this would be possible? I'm trying to accomplish this inside an app with the Android SDK (Sorry I wasn't more clear about that originally)View 3 Replies View Related

I use Google Voice (love it) primarily because of it's visual voicemail on my Droid. I do have a Google Voice number, and I'm trying to decide whether to set the Droid app to "make calls using Google Voice" or not.
I have no problem with giving out a different number, and my placed calls seeing the GV number in caller ID.
My question is, does this affect how the call is actually connected, from a quality standpoint? I tired a call both ways, and the sound quality seemed a little bit different. But then, I am an obsessive compulsive weirdo.
Is there any difference in call quality or routing between making a native Verizon call and a Google Voice call on Droid? (Like, does Google voice actual use 3G to connect to Google server over the internetz, then place the phone call?)
I alternate between two wifi networks on my HTC Desire running Android 2.2 ( I think!)On one network I need to specify the network IP/subnet/Gateway and so on, on the other network I can use DHCP.Is there any way to tell Android that whenever I connect to one wifi network it should use the static IP and on the other it should get an IP automatically?I am forever going into advanced wifi settings and changing them back and forth. I'd love for my phone to remember the settings used on each wifi profile.View 3 Replies View Related

I have an android application using LocationManager get the cell network location and not the Wifi location? If I have turned off the Wifi antenna and do the following:LocationManager lm = (LocationManager) paramContext.getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);I am always returned the Wifi location and not the cell network location. I want it to return the cell location since I have moved fromthe Wifi location. I tried using a LocationListener but that doesn't seem to help.View 1 Replies View Related

So i rooted with Droid Does rom, because i heard its nice and fast and what not. So basically the only problem i have with it is this.

Hi. I am looking for some advice with regards to how I receive calls on my Xperia X10i. Basically, the story goes as follows...normally when I receive a call I have to do that swipe thing to accept the call, however, at very random times instead of the swipe I get the option of pressing 'Accept Call' or 'Decline Call' which are displayed on the lower part of the screen side-by-side. Now, to be perfectly honest I actually prefer the latter option but do not know why it is so random. To be clear, I have never updated my phone since I got it and I have searched the settings but not been able to locate anything which would explain this.View 3 Replies View Related

I want to add custom fields to the Call Logs like a session ID and SIP address(name@domain) field. How can I customize the call logs database?
every time I make a call, receive a call, turn the phone off, turn the phone on, loose service or gain service, a voice says "Verizon Wireless". This is very annoying and I can't seem to figure out how to turn it off. Changing ring tones and such does not work, still says "Verizon Wireless". Is there anyway to turn this off?View 2 Replies View Related
I don't remember my DroidX always doing this, but recently after I hang-up from a call it shows the "Call Time XX:XX" in the center of the screen and I can't do anything until it goes away, which is generally 5-8 seconds. Hitting Home, Back, etc does nothing and tapping on the screen or the message also does nothing.Is this a setting I can disable? I can look at the recent calls to get the length of call if I need to see it, so I don't need the dramatic pause to give me this info.View 2 Replies View Related
