HTC Incredible :: What Is Icon That Looks Like Satelite Dish?
Jun 29, 2010
I have notived a new Icon that seems to pop up every thirty seconds or so, It lis located to the left of the GPS Icon and it looks like the side view of a satelite dish at a forty five degree angle with three flashing green semi circle "signals" coming out of it? What the heck is this.When I go to advanced task killer and kill absolutely everything it still comes up?
Was hoping someone could help me out. I like how my Eris has default buttons to quickly switch on Wifi and Bluetooth, is there an option to do the same for GPS Satellites? i hate going through the settings menu to turn it on or off. I think i've seen pictures of peoples setups where they have this and airplane mode as quick on/off buttons but i can't seem to find it.
Not sure where the problem is but I can't get video from the Note 3 to display on the Dish Hopper. Music from the Note streams to it with the Hopper displaying album art and play controls. When I try video it shows a loading progress but fails with video cannot be played error. I have tried very short videos thinking it may have been a file size problem but this happens with all video.
Does anyone know if there is an Icon of the Incredible? I would like to replace the old telephone receiver icon on the dock with an Icon of the Incredible. If not could someone make me one from a picture or explain how to reduce the pic to a sice for the Icon? Currently I downloaded the Windows 7 icon pack from the market and i'm using the default cell phone icon which looks like an old canybar Nokia.
I received the OTA for my DInc this morning. The most noticeable difference is that I no longer have a 3G icon. It has been replaced with a new icon that looks like a stack of windows (or pages) and is always constantly lit and never changes. Is this Verizon's response to the grayed out 3G ? To remove it entirely?
So after using google maps to navigate somewhere today, the small icon on top of the phone saying that the gps is active will not go away or turn off. i don't have any crazy apps and i even tried using task killer to stop maps and also the force close on it from settings not sure what to do to make this go away. hopefully it's not messing with the battery life. does anyone else have this issue or know more about it?
I've gotten a few icons on the notification bar lately i'm not familiar with.I don't think they correspond to events but more service notifications.One is next to the 3g. and it looks like a compass or crosshair.Is there a key online to see all of the icons in the notification bar?
I've been having a problem for the past few weeks with my Incredible being in a constant state of sync. I can tell this by the sync icon spinning around and around in the bar up top. There's a rouge app calling for sync somewhere, how can I find it? I've already tried to obvious method of going into settings > accounts and sync and disabling literally everything in there. Facebook, Weather, Google, everything is turned off. Another app somewhere is using sync. The only way to get it to stop is to hit the cancel sync button on that page and then it goes away for a few hours and then it comes right back. I'm sure this is a huge battery suck. Is there an app that monitors other app usage with sync or something?
I had a weird thing happen today someone was trying to call me i didnt get the phone in time.then i got a notification that contained my GV # saying I had a message. the person who called doesnt have my GV #. now when i go to GV on the computer or the inc it says i have no messages yet the notification wont go away at the top the INC saying that my GV# has a message.I use my VZW # for my VM through GV I never use the GV # at all.not sure how to remove the message icon.
Is there any way to change the default android icon that pops up when you receive a call? I know you can add pictures to the contact and get that to show up. But is there any way to load another "default" icon?
On another note, this forum has been great. The incredible is my first smartphone and I've had it for about a week.This forum has been a great resource to get me going.
I saw my friends iphone and I like the size of their icon. I know there's few apps to make IC screen looks like iphone but, I just want my icon bigger. Is there any apps for this? Also, is there any apps that can replace Launcher Pro Plus?
I went into recovery and moved the VV.apk and other file to an app.disabled directory on my phone, the issue is that the icon is still in the apps section? Any reason you guys could think of as to why? Actually now that I click on it it for some reason takes me to MMS messages and the icon is just called voicemail. Can I get rid of that icon as I use google voice?
So I noticed that my battery icon is showing nearly a solid green battery, just slightly below it (a thin sliver of black). I've been on the phone for over an hour, played some games, got some e-mails etc and was wondering why it hasn't moved because before (had the phone since the beginning of May) it always seems to drop pretty accurately based on my usage (granted it's just observation, never studied it or anything). I went to settings - about phone - battery - and saw that I'm actually at 70%...but yet the icon hasn't moved down. Played a game for about 3 minutes and checked again, and the green icon now accurately shows what a 70% battery life should look like. Does anybody else know if their icon doesn't accurately represent their usage? Is this nothing to worry about? haha just concerned it will lag more and more with time or something...
So obviously, I need to enable Location Settings in order to get GPS ability in Google Maps. But I don't see why it needs to have an icon taking up valuable space in the status bar (as a side note, there's an icon to indicate that it's OFF, so you can't NOT have a location setting icon on there). There was no such icon on my Droid.
Is there a way to disable this icon that anyone knows of? With Wifi/3G, the battery meter, alarm clock, the time, and the bars, they take up over half of my status bar. The problem is compounded by the fact that I have a battery app that always displays the exact battery percentage on the left side (another side note; why isn't the exact percentage shown on the default battery icon?
I was wondering if it was possible to remove the persistent location icon that takes up space on the status bar. It doesn't make sense to me that the location icon ALWAYS has to be there, whether you enable GPS tracking or not, to let you know one way or another. Especially since the Motorola Droid didn't require this.
Also, it would be nice if the battery indicator could be changed to a percentage. Right now, I have an app - Battery Indicator - that tells this, but it places an icon in the left side of the status bar, needlessly taking up space as well.
It would be killer for me if I could get rid of these 2 superfluous status bar icons and leave room for other stuff.
I'm running Third Wave, Hydra Kernel 1, but I'm guessing a separate ROM would be necessary to do what I want. MetaMorph doesn't work for me, for what it's worth.
