Is there any way to locate my downloads? See what's on my SD card? access the native .pdf reader directly? See a directory of my files? In other words, generally use Android as it comes out of the box like a normal operating system?
Anybody else have/had this problem. My phone doesn't care where I am. I could be standing outside, driving, in my apartment (where I've gotten it to locate me plenty of times), ANYWHERE..."Unable to locate"
Blackberry user for the last 6 years. Just left the Storm & received my DInc today! A friend of mine sent me a mms with a sound file attached that I want to use when receiving text messages. I clicked the message & saved the file but cant seem to locate it anywhere. Anyone know how I can locate this file & set it as my default text sound?
Is there any kind of app that can locate other Android phones? Like, maybe run the app on both phones, then have it show up on the maps, so we could find each other using GPS? Me and my friend go in the trails around my house a lot, and our phones are very accurate for where we are, so we're not worried about the accuracy of the GPS, as we know how it is already.
I recently lost my phone, and had an app on it that texted me the location. Unfortunately I was overseas and didn't get the phone back, but it was a good little app - but for the life of me I can't remember the name of it or find it in the market.
The exact fucntionality was that when a different sim card is put in the phone, it preiodically sends you 3 texts with the location of the phone by cell tower, GPS and another (WPS I think?) format. So you get a rough location and also the phone number of the person with the phone. Handy...
Anyone got an idea of what this app was called? It's not Wavesecure, Lookout (which totally failed to locate the phone or restore the backups - rubbish), Where's My Droid...
As I say, done an extensive web and market search and can't find it anywhere..
I had a scare today where I left my phone at the gym and thought I had lost it. Whats a good app to locate the phone remotely? (preferably works with GPS AND cell tower location, because I don't have GPS on most of the time.) It would be nice to be able to remotely lock it as well... looks like there are some options available but I'm not sure which one works. The thing with the app store is that you can't sort by reviews, its hard to tell which app is good and which one doesn't work
I lost my phone last night, and I had wavesecure on it, but I haven't been able to locate it or even lock it! but I know the battery was really low. Does wavesecure not work if it's uncharged? Anyway, I'm still on contract, but no insurance. Is there any way to still somehow locate my phone using wavesecure?
Just picked up my Incredible earlier today. Was tired of waiting on Amazon so found the last remaining one at the Bestbuy instead. Anyway, they threw in a free 2GB SD card. I already bought a 8gig card. Should I return it? Will the 2gig be enough plus the phone memory? I know I'm being a little cheap but the extra cash wouldn't hurt.
Is there a way to save photos i take to my phone instead of SD CARD when my sd card is mounted. because i want to take some pictures for my contacts but i plan to switch sd cards in the future so i dont want to retake photos for my contacts.
Okay, so my phone has been freezing a lot lately, just locking up, going black. I couldn't find the issue, phone is rooted, tried many different roms, virtuous has been the best to me freeze wise. I wasn't even able to get through setup 99% of the time. I finally found out everything works fine when the sd card isn't in there (only 4 GB - class 2 / upgrading soon). It is formatted as FAT32. Do you think transferring all the files to my computer, reformatting it, and then putting all the files back on will fix the problem? Or have any other suggestions?
So I have had my replacement phone for about a month now. I haven't had time to play with it that much. I clicked on PDF, and low and behold there is something that was downloaded to the SD card as a PDF on it. I did not download this, which means they gave me a used SD card with the replacement phone ( sketchy right?) Anyway, I want to delete the pdf, how do i do it? I know there is an uninstall place somewhere, just not sure where it is. Also how do I check to see what else is on the SD card?
I have several avi files stored on the internal 8GB phone memory drive feature in my Incredible. Unfortunately, Rockplayer only accesses my 2GB micro SD card! Unsuccessful workaround I thought I could navigate to the 8GB drive via ASTRO, and then play the avi files, but Rockplayer show as a player option!
Was thinking about upgrading my stock 2gb card to a 16 or 32 soon. So I have a few questions. 1)Since my Dinc is rooted, will I have to copy anything to the new card after formatting it, or should my phone remain unaffected? 2) I know there is class 2, 4, and 6, with each having faster read/write speeds and being quite a bit more. Will those speeds really make much difference when being used in my phone for backups, random files, apps, and music or videos? 3) Can I copy my sd card files to my phone's internal memory and transfer them that way? Or do I need to transfer them through my computer?
Just updated to 2.2 and phone/sd card will mount to pc but then it randomly acts like it has been unplugged and plugged by in. For instance I was copying a 1gb file from the phone to the sd card and it was copying for all of 20 seconds then it was gone then it was back and wanted to know if I wanted to copy over the existing files that had been transfered before the disconnect (or whatever). It does this on both the sd card and the phone memory; anyone else have this problem? Have a solution? Oh, and this is done over the same usb cable I have been using for months without the slightest problem.
I am becoming sick of the Incredible's stock player, mainly because of its poor shuffle mode. I have looked at apps like MixZing, Cubed, and DoubleTwist, but these all seem like they won't play music from both the sd card and internal phone storage like the stock player. Are there any players that will do this, and perhaps find album art like the others?
