HTC Hero :: Possible To Disable Double-press Menu Feature To Unlock Phone?

Oct 3, 2009

A couple of times today I have taken the Hero out of my pocket to find that it is unlocked and doing something (first time it tried to send an SMS to a black number and then it had loaded the browser) which is weird because I didn't think it would be able to use the touch screen while in my pocket.I'm guessing that it managed to unlock itself by pressing the menu button twice while in my pocket, but this does seem unlikely - anyway I activated the unlock pattern and it hasn't done it since, so my question is it possible to disable the ability to double-press menu to unlock it? (It's rooted if that makes it possible).It's always possible that I just didn't lock the phone either of those times, but that seems more unlikely. Has anyone else noticed this problem?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Way To Unlock Phone With Menu / Track Ball?

Nov 11, 2010

I was using CM6 and it had an option that i could unlock the phone by double pressing the menu button or by pressing the trackball. Now I am back to Darchdroid v2.8 because i like it way better than froyo, but the only way to unlock the phone is by sliding the screen icon. Is there a way to re-enable that menu/trackball way of unlocking the phone? I am using launcherpro 8.1 as home screen, not sure if that makes a difference.

Sprint HTC Hero :: On Home Screen Long Press Menu Key Function?

Nov 15, 2009

I tried searching for this, to no avail, but here is the situation. I was on my main Home screen and just trying to figure stuff out and when I long press the menu key it brings up the onscreen keyboard. I figured it was for contact search or something, but it did nothing when I typed...or so I thought. Now everytime I back out to the Home screen a little transparent "window" displays with letters i first typed. I cant type new letters to display or even use the backspace key to erase. Any one know what Im talking about?

Samsung Moment :: Long Press Icons On Home Screen When Unlock Phone

Nov 18, 2010

It seems like almost every time that I unlock my phone, one of the icons on the home screen is selected (long press, like I was intending to move it or trash it). Using Launcher Pro, if that might be causing it. I don't think it was doing this before the last Sprint update, but don't know if that's the cause either.

Jelly Bean :: Samsung Galaxy S4 - Double Tap On Top Feature?

Feb 2, 2014

I just researched about some features and found out that the s3 has a double tap on top to scroll a list all the way back to the top. my s4 doesn't have this feature? or does it?because I cant seem to find it? I know the s4 has 3 sensors on top, the rgb light, the proximity, and the air gesture on, how come the galaxy note 3 only has 2? and does the s3 have similar sensors or completely different ones?

Motorola Milestone :: Way To Unlock Phone With Menu Button?

I grew tired of unlocking with the power button so I checked the manual, which says that, alternatively, you may unlock the phone pressing the Menu button. The thing is, it does not work! I short pressed it, long pressed it and all the other 3 buttons, with no result.

HTC EVO 4G :: Swype Beta Double Tap Feature / Internal Memory Dropping

Jul 19, 2010

I have the Swype beta for android installed on my phone and I am only having one problem - double tapping in the word window. I know if you misspell a word you should be able to double tap it in the window after the fact and it should bring up the word choice window for you to choose. However, with Swype on my Evo, all it does it highlight the word and I cannot change the word.

My other question is about internal memory. My phone has been dropping MB of internal storage like a bad habit. I went from 400 to 320 in a matter of a few days and have not installed or saved anything outside of my sd card. Why is this happening? and what happens if that memory reaches 200 - 100 or even 0?

HTC Eris :: Physical Buttons - How To Disable Slide Unlock To Answer Phone?

Oct 9, 2010

I am currently using xtrROM 4.2 and like many - am SICK of pocket answering my Eris. (I know this happens regardless of rooting). Is there a way of completely disabling the slide unlock to answer the phone? Using the Green to answer, Red to deny works perfectly well. I want it like an "olden-days" dumb phone. Is it at all possible to modify/flash the ROM to render the screen inactive for this? Most threads point to unlocker apps, but I'm trying to avoid them.

HTC EVO 4G :: Slide Down To Unlock Feature - No Way To Set Delay?

Jul 3, 2010

You know when you turn off the screen. The slide down to unlock feature, there's NO way to set a delay for this to come on? What I would like would be to remove that slide down to unlock feature and just have the pattern lock on (with a delay option). But i hate having the slide down to unlock, and then unlock again with a pattern. No way to 1) delay the slide to unlock feature or 2)remove the slide to unlock and only have the pattern lock working?(with a delay feature if possible,say only show up after 2hours has passed) My windows mobile phone had this simple option built in.

General :: Unlock On Power Button Long Press?

Jun 11, 2012

I need to be able to skip the swipe screen and unlock the phone by long pressing the power button. On short press, it should act regularly (waking up and showing the swipe screen). I've tried "No Lock", "Autolock" and "My Lock Utility" but these unlock the phone immediately after pressing the power button I think this would be the ideal combination of functionality.

My phone is Motorola Atrix.

Android :: How To Implement Context Menu On Key Press Instead Of Long Click / Tap?

Jun 5, 2010

I have a ListActivity and I want to implement context menu for each of the list elements. I know that the common way to do this is to show the context menu on long click/tap. I want to know if there is a way to show the context menu for each element on a key press(preferably the menu key).To rephrase my question, how can I trigger the context menu and not the options menu by pressing the menu key(or any other key).
