HTC EVO 4G :: Connecting To Wireless Shuts Down 3g?

Jul 2, 2010

Sorry if this has been asked and answered but I searched and could not find a reply. I am new to Android OS and I noticed today that when I start my wireless connection on my EVO the 3G connection closes. When I disconnect wireless 3G starts. Is this normal or have I tripped a setting somewhere that causes this?

HTC Eris :: Wireless Tether - Ad Hoc Connections For Wireless Mouse

May 27, 2010

The main reason i wanted a rooted phone was so i could connect to my laptops ad hoc network and use a program for wireless keyboard and mouse. i cant really afford the real thing at the moment and with my laptop hooked up to my flat screen its kind of necessary to have..

So ive rooted my phone and tried a few roms. currently i have this one: [ROM] [05/18/2010] Tainted Vanilla V1.4 OVERCLOCKED - xda-developers

I always run into the same problem though. wired or wireless, i cant get it to connect right. wired never works in any way but i dont really care about that. wireless however shows some signs of working. it shows some data has been sent, not received though. and my computer will detect and connect to it, but seems to lose the signal after a few moments. when i bring up a browser it doesnt even look like something might load. it just says im offline. could someone help me with this?

The other part of this problem is i really just want to connect to my computers ad hoc network and use a wireless keyboard and mouse program. none of them seem that great unfortunately.. recommendations are appreciated. but my biggest issue is that i cant seem to connect to an ad hoc network. i believe my phone detected it only once while i was on the "white widow" rom, but could never quite connect..

HTC EVO 4G :: Rooted - Phone Shuts Down Whenever Use GPS

Sep 5, 2010

I recently rooted a 2.2 stock phone, using the XDA method (clockwork). Everything seems to work fine, except for two things: BIG THING: Whenever I try to use the GPS function on my phone the phone just shuts off and restarts. (this is when I use the GPS satellites function. NOT when I use the "use wireless networks" setting under the Location sub-section of settings) When I turn on GPS and try to get "my location" in google maps. It restarts. When I use Yelp it turns off.

SMALL thing: The wifi tether is decent but it often stops working (I used the google one). I.e. The computer that's connected to the wireless network either gets disconnected, or it thinks it's disconnected but the internet just doesn't work. At this point, I just simply shut the tether on and off. But it's slightly inconvenient. Is this an issue other people are having?

HTC EVO 4G :: 4g Won't Scan - Immediately Shuts Off

Sep 28, 2010

I turn the 4g on and it immediately shuts off when it says scanning. It only rarely actually works and this has only been happening the past month or so. I just rooted it with unrevoked3 last week though. the problem has been before that. I do now have wireless tether installed but I don't have it active when I try to update. I've tried it with Wireless tether On and Off, with Mobile Connection On and Off, with Sprint Hotspot On and Off, nothing makes a difference. I've rebooted numerous times. The past few days I've been using Advanced Task Killer to kill apps every 30 minutes in aggressive which gives me crazy good battery life even with syncing and fairly bright light and normal usage. Like three days with only two spots of 30 minute charging. It also charges much faster though.

I don't know why it works sometimes. I can't find anything linking the working moments. I'm in a fairly good 4G area when it works, I get around 1.3 megabytes coming down at the peak. Is there anything I can do? Is anyone else experiencing this? I would think that if it actually scanned, it would take longer than an eighth of a second to do so.

Samsung Moment :: Screen Shuts Off

Mar 26, 2010

Have been having this problem for the Moment for a while now. Once a call is placed the phone will go black and I am unable to access the onscreen functions (Speaker, Dialpad, etc). I've tried tapping the screen, hitting the back button and hitting the menu button, but the screen remains black. At some point it MAY come on or just briefly flash on. This has been very annoying - especially with calls that require multiple prompts.

HTC EVO 4G :: Screen Shuts Off After Morning Alarm

Jun 15, 2010

I use my phone as my alarm clock. Every night I put it on the charger and leave the night desk clock on. It stays on and doesnt shut off. In the morning the alarm goes off but Tue screen is blank. Pushing any button on the device puts the alarm in snooze mode. The only way I can make the alarm stop is to have the screen on and waiting for the alarm to sound so I can press the dismiss button. I'm pretty sure this started after I installed Brightness Profiles from the marketplace. I have since uninstalled that program but the problem persists. I have "Never sleep while charging" checked in the options but it makes no difference. There was a new development this morning. I was using the web browser this morning while plugged into the charger and the screen just shut off. I turned it back on with the power button and had to slide to unlock. The screen never shuts off in the car while charging. I have the timeout set to "Never".

HTC EVO 4G :: Navigation Shuts Off My Music Permenately

Aug 18, 2010

EVO newbie here. I was using iheart radio along with Google navigation a few days after getting the phone. It worked the way it should have, navigation voice comes on, radio pauses, navigation voice stops, radio resumes broadcasting.Well tried to use it the same way and every time the nav. voice spoke the radio paused but wouldn't resume like it should have. I thought it might be the iheart radio app so I tried it with the stock music player and the same thing. Nav. voice speaks, music pauses, nav. voice ends, music doesn't resume.What's up with that? That is one of the main features that turned me to the EVO.

Samsung Moment :: Google Shuts Down Browser

Aug 9, 2010

Encountered a wierd issue with my Samsung Moment this weekend. I would click on my browser icon (Google is bookmarked as my home page) the google page would load, start "acquiring my location" and then automatically shut down my browser. So I went through the Sprint help desk for several hours with no answer and no fix. I changed my home page to something other than Google and now my browser seems to work just fine. But everytime I go to the google webpage, like I'm doing a google search it shuts down the browser. Flipping weird! Another heads up. if I use my Google searchwidget, it seems to work just fine.

Android :: Dimming Before Phone Shuts Off / Need To Stop It

Nov 21, 2010

I've read all the posts I could find. I just want the phone to never dim. The option to have it shut off at 2 minutes is perfect. I just hate the dimming that happens before it shuts off. I have tried screebl but is completely disables screen off timer. I just want it to stop dimming and just shut the screen off according to the display timeout. It dims reguardless of manual or automatic brightness. I don't want to disable the screen off timer either. IF I leave the phone on at the table and walk away, I do want it to turn off in 2 minutes.
What can I do to just keep the freaking phone from dimming yet still shut off with the timer?

Does it some how register that I'm getting a call or text and automatically turn the service back on or what?

HTC Incredible :: Hydra Kernel - Browser Shuts Down When Open Certain Websites?

Jul 8, 2010

I'm currently having an issue where my browser shuts down when I open certain websites. In particular. androidforums.com. The strange thing is it doesn't force close. The screen just goes black momentarily, then I'm back at my home screen. It's happening on all browsers, so it's not an application issue. I've never had this issue before, and I recently installed Hydra Kernel #3 (UV/OV 1.15 w/ N). Is this something other people are experiencing in conjunction with a hydra kernel? If not, do any of you guys know what could be causing this?

Samsung Captivate :: Updated To Froyo - Now Phone Shuts Off At Random

Oct 29, 2010

I upgraded my Captivate to 2.2 two weeks ago and ever since the phone will shut itself off without making a sound (screen just goes black like the battery was pulled out) randomly. I do notice it never does it if the charger is plugged in.

I also am having a problem with txting. Sometimes when I am replying to a txt to one person, it will sent the message to a random person in my contacts instead of the person I intended to send the txt to.

Lastly, when I take a pic with the camera or download a pic from a txt, it takes awhile for it to show up in my gallery...

None of these things were happening when it was still running 2.1.

Samsung Captivate :: Spontaneously Shuts Off - Short Battery Life

Sep 18, 2010

Ive been stalking the forums for a few weeks, reading up on all the issues and things associated with this phone and i can say ive experienced most of them (excluding rooting issues, i havent rooted).

*(of course) gps issues
*phone spontaneously shuts off and battery has to be removed before it will turn back on
*randomly awakes itself from sleep just to display the lock screen
*painfully short battery life
*no signal for a long time, have to restart phone several times before it returns.

These have all plagued me horribly the past month or so. then today it decided it wanted to....::gasp:: behave?

My battery still had half its life left when i got home tonight and its usually dead or yelping for a charge by that time (activity/usage the same today too). pages loaded quickly today and i had a signal all day.

Motorola Droid : Streaming Horrid For Everyone - Shoutcast Feed Shuts Off?

They tend to shut off on my laptop too but nowhere near as frequently. What are your experiences?

HTC EVO 4G :: Potential For 802.11n Wireless-n On The Evo

I was wondering about this earlier in the weekend because I know the Nexus One features a broadcom communications chipset that features 802.11n support. Searching did not turn up any specifications on the Evo with regard to its wireless package though... until today. i Fix it just released its teardown of the Evo 4G, ( HTC Evo 4G Teardown - Page 2 - iFixit ) and it turns out that it features the Broadcom BCM4329 chipset -- known to have 802.11n support! I've read that some people believe that wireless-n support for the Nexus One comes with Froyo... maybe this is something else to look forward to when Froyo comes to the Evo.

HTC EVO 4G :: How To Get Wireless Tether?

Jul 14, 2010

I have a stock EVO with the latest OTA update (software version: 1.47.651.1) and it has never been rooted. All I want to do now is be able to use wireless tether (with multiple laptops) via my EVO. What is the easy/best way to achieve this? I know the first thing I need to do is root the EVO. Should I do this using Unrevoked, or using something like SimpleRoot? For my purposes, what's the difference b/t these two methods?

Next, is wireless tether an app that I have to download somewhere? If so, which is the best one (if there are more than one). Or will this feature surface automatically after rooting the phone. Or does it come on some ROM that I need to flash? And finally, what is this Radio/WiMax patch thing that everyone is trying to put on their phone?
