My Incredible is still on the charger and will be for a few hours. Since I can't poke around in the settings yet, is there a way to find your MAC address? My WAP is setup with MAC filtering, so I will need to know it for wi-fi to work properly.
How can I find the IP address of the an HTC incredible connected to Verizon's network? My other question - do I have to make any changes to my App to run it on a cellular network? Till now the App was running on a Nexus One connected to a local Wi-Fi network.
A long long time ago, like 2.5 yrs ago when I was using a Treo, there was a great app called Directory Assistant (DA for those ex treo users).
It was a dedicated white pages, and very fast.
What everybody has been telling me on my droid is just to type the name into the search bar up top. That then brings up a browser with google's results. So when I went to look for 'joe blow' 'anycity' yesterday it brought up a link for his facebook, linkedin, research paper he wrote, etc.., everything but his phone number.
What is the best way to find someones phone number or address if you know their name and state with Android on the droid?
Is there a way to find the IP address of the desktop machine connected the android phone after USB tethering is turned on? Does android assign a fixed IP address to the desktop? Or does it assign a dynamic address (dhcp)? Is there a PPP connection created between the phone and machine?
I searched through another thread and it wasn't specified, but I have the Droid2 and want to connect to the home wifi router, but don't know my phone's MAC address as this is the setting of the router to make it more efficient for gaming.
I have already gone to the settings page under wifi and 'advanced' but it has a MAC ADDRESS listing, but won't let me select it saying it is unavailable.
1. How can I enable and find out my MAC Address 2. While I'm at it although I have not been on the forums in a few weeks and admit this is a lazy ploy at help, has a one click or 'user-friendly' root come for Droid2 that doesn't require me to read pages of a thread and go through 100 steps!?
1. When I turn on my phone, the boot up with the Droid mascot and the HTC logo is extremely loud. Is there any way I can lower the volume on this? Does the Media volume control this?
2. Is there any way I can find out the ip address my phone is using when it is connected via wi-fi? I know you can set-up a static IP, but I'm just trying to see what my ip address is without using a static one.
This is a HOW TO about how to spoof your MAC address. A MAC address is a combination of numbers and letters that are unique to your own wifi card. I am not responsible for how you use this, I am just putting it out here. Don't flood this thread with how it is illegal because there are legal uses for this (such as pen testing).
First, you need to download a free app called Android Terminal Emulator. It is free and works on the Incredible. You do not need root for this to work. To change back to your normal MAC Address, just follow these steps to change it back or restart your phone.
It makes this easier if you already know your real MAC Address which can be found at: All Programs > Settings > Wireless & Networks > WiFi Settings > Menu button > Advanced
Keep this in mind
Then, open the Terminal Emulator previously installed. You need to run a few linux commands to get the change. You need to find the name of your card. To do this type this without the quotes (''): 'ip link show'
This will provide a list of a bunch of different interfaces. Find the one that has the same MAC address as the one found above. On the Incredible, it is the last one called eth0. I will use eth0 in the examples, but if it is different, then change eth0 to your own one in the following commands.
To change the MAC Address, type this without the quotes (''): 'ip link set eth0 address XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX' 'ip link set eth0 broadcast XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX'
XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX is the new MAC Address you want where each X is a letter A-F or number.
Finally, to check if the MAC Address has changed, type this without the quotes (''): 'ip link show eth0'
It should now show the new MAC Address. I haven't checked if it sends this MAC address to the router, but I think it will. I will update once I check it.
I like to add addresses to my phone book in Android. As a lot of my contacts live in buildings i also like to add the floor and apartment number to the address: Looking like that:
Street and Number, Floor and Department number Town, zip code State Country
Av. Whatever 12345, Floor 5-A Buenos Aires 1007 Argentina
When clicking on the address the GPS of my wish opens , finds the country, city but not the street because of the additional Floor and department information. Without this additional information everything well with Google Maps or Sygic.
So, how should i add this additional Floor and department information to my address without the GPS has problems to find the main location.Also from ICS on there is only one filed to add the whole address not as with Gingerbread where you had a field for street, city, etc.
Can anyone suggest a good addressbook. The one that comes native to Incredible poorly shows address information. Also, is it combine exchange mail and pop mail so that it just all goes into one mailbox?
In going through the online order process today, I noticed this on the "Review Changes" page.Listed as a new feature is "General IP Address" as a no charge addition.Anyone know what this is for?Tethering?WiFi Hotspot?I have a WinMo smartphone and this "feature" isn't listed for my current plan.Just seems like an odd feature to be listed.
I have a friend that texted me and his name, number, and facebook picture came up as expected. Later on when I went to call him, turns out he isn't in my "People" application. However, if I click the search button within the "People" app and look for his name he comes right up. If I open his contact info up, I can't add him to my contacts or anything like that. Do "Facebook Only" contact not show in the People app?
Is there a way to somehow link a contact's address to a calendar event? For instance, if I have a meeting at Joe Bob's office, I'd like to be able to type in Joe Bob's name in the event location field on the calendar and have it insert the address for me, instead of having to switch to contacts, find Joe Bob, copy Joe Bob's address, switch back to calendar, and paste the address.
Just getting used to my HTC Desire, after reading your forum I was comforted regarding battery life and it seems much better now than the first few days. I see another post on this but no answer, the address book only gives one line of the address is then any way round this? Even my first pda a Psion 3 had the option of which fields to display etc. there seems very little option to format what is seen, not that I am unhappy about the rest but to have to edit to see all the address is barmy. Another thing way back then that still is not found is search all fields of the contacts, i.e. to find a number of someone that rang on another phone.
I am using the HTC mail app, to get emails from a Gmail account, which gets messages from a POP3 account. In Gmail online, I can send all messages as being sent from the Pop3 account. I cannot figure out how to do this with the HTC mail account, which makes it pretty useless. Anyone else using HTC mail and receiving and sending from different accounts? I've tried changing the outgoing server stuff, but I keep getting failed message sent errors.
When viewing an individual contact in People (Contacts, Address Book equiv.) the single address field contains the street, city, state and zip. (The Google Contacts, which is the source for the 'People' is also a single field for street, city ,state, zip.) The latter part of the field (zip, state and sometimes city), does not show up without clicking on the address, loading the map (with GPS running) and then clicking on the address balloon in the map.Is there an easier way that I should be doing this to read the entire address for a contact?
I'm using Handcent (recent convert from BB) I have a few shortcuts setup for frequent persons I text but wondered the fastest way to compose a text for a random person in my address book. Here's what I've done:
1. press Handcent 2. press top left icon for new message 3. press + sign 4. scroll list for contact 5. press check mark 6. press check mark to select mobile phone 7. press ok 8. press menu 9. press "end select" 10. compose text. so, that's nuts. The other way I've tried is: 1.press people shortcut 2. scroll list for contact 3. press contact 4. Look at the 3 entries for "send message" (my example contact) and try and remember which is the cell phone. 5. press send message. 6. compose text
So I guess the second way is better but I'd rather not have to figure which is the cell phone and rather than scrolling to find the name I'd rather type first letters of name.
Is there an easier way to move certain facebook contacts to my main address book? right now I've been creating new contacts in my address book and then syncing it to their facebook account. Am I missing something?
I've rooted my phone and patiently waiting for some custom roms and such. Does anybody know if the roms or froyo update will address the charging issue with the incredible. I hate having to shut off my phone to get a full charge, and that extra 10% makes a big difference.
The verizon lady set up a gmail for me when I first got my phone. I guess I used that email to buy my apps and stuff because using my current gmail it wants me to buy the apps again. It's been a while so I forgot the email she set up and I don't know the recovery email I gave her (if I even gave her one) Is there any way I can find out what email I used to buy the app?
