HTC Incredible :: Application For Calls Only Notification Mode
May 6, 2010
These are our only phones and they stay on the night stand while we sleep. With the BB there were sound profiles you could easily select and the most useful one was "calls only". You select that and all of your notifications go silent except for incoming calls which would ring. This was perfect for switching on right before bed.
This is more of an issue for my wife because she's usually on call 24/7 so it's important to wake up or hear incoming calls overnight so vibrate mode isn't going to cut it. But at the same time, she has various notifications for email and messages and all of that so it's incredibly tedious to have to manually tweak all of those each night before bed and then turn them back on. So, at the very least is there an app or a way to easily switch the phone into a phone call notification only mode? A full blown sound profile app would be great too, but just being able to easily turn all notifications silent but the ringer with a few taps on the screen would be huge.
I came across this in the marketplace. It basically lights up your screen on and off when you have a missed call or text. You have to option to set the frequency your screen flashes to notify you (every 5, 10 seconds, etc) and for how long this goes on (1 hour, 2 hours, etc) Gonna try it out. Not sure if it's a battery drainer or not, just trying it out myself.
I'll be talking on the phone and might receive a text message or gmail from someone. My phone immediately vibrates twice to notify me. Not only is this unpleasant when I have the phone to my ear, but it's also an annoyance to the person I'm talking to as they hear the vibrate sounds. In fact any time I'm talking to my girlfriend and my phone vibrates, she asks "who is texting you now?" I really just want the notification turned off while I'm on a call. Is there a way to prevent this from happening while on the phone?
I can't get a little vibration when I receive an email/text message when the phone is set to vibrate mode? I'm the kind of guy who likes to set his phone to vibrate, put it in his pocket, and only (or mostly) take it out when a notification arrives.
I just got the HTC Incredible and one of the things I haven't been able to figure out is how to set incoming phone calls to vibrate, yet play the notification sound. None of the profiles seems to make that combination happen. If I switch it to silent, no sound or vibrations happen for calls or notifications. In the vibrate profile, both calls and notifications only vibrate. In normal mode, I can't get calls to vibrate only. If I slide the call ringer volume all the way down and slide notification volume up, it switches it to silent mode. If I have call ringer volume up one notch from silent, it still plays the ringtone. Is this something I can accomplish or do I have to have silent calls only if I still want notifications played?
Is there any way to get an email or text notification once my phone is in sleep mode? If my phone is "awake" it rings but once asleep I don't get any notification. Also, if my phone ringer is set to vibrate is there any way to set my email/text notification to ring or does it have to be both vibrating or both ringing.
Now that we installed ChompSMS, we need to turn off the notifications in the stock messaging app so that we don't get two notifications for each message. But I don't find any settings in the messaging app menu so that I can change it there. And I can't find it in the general Settings. So, how do I do this?
Using standard Google navi software, incoming and outgoing calls are vertical when the should orientated horizontally like the rest of the phone in the horizontal dock/mount. Its a new Moto Droid with 2.1 I believe.
I'm a new user to this site, search for some related problems, but I couldn't find anything related to my problem that resolves it.I bought a HTC Magic this week, the best mobile I ever owned.Anyways, the problem is that when someone calls, the "Silent Mode" icon shows up at the "taskbar" and no sound is played. It's really annoying because I can't find the settings for it.I haven't set them to be like this, but it worked the same day I bought it.Not now.So, incoming call->no sound and the icon shows up->the orb flickers->I answer and I can talk without problems.The only thing is that even tho the ringer volume is at max, no sound is played during an incoming call.
having problems receiving calls. When I call the phone from another line, nothing happens except its logged as a missed call. The screen doesnt light up and no options for receiving calls. This happened before I installed Google voice. I disabled Google voice and still no joy. Everything else works. I can make calls, browse over WiFi and 3G.
I have got a project on Android application- silent features in my college. We have to develop an android app which will put the phone in silent mode for all incoming calls, expect for those the user selects (for these selected contacts the phone should ring).
Is there any online tutorials available for android where i can start learning android programming ? As i don't have much time left to join any classes for the same. This project has to be submitted within 3 weeks.
Is there a way to mute all notifications (preferably set them on vibrate) and still have the phone ring when someone calls. I found many apps that do that for certain contacts, but is there a way to do this for ALL calls?
Any way to allow certain phone calls to come through when your phone is in airplane mode? I would like to set my phone up so that in an emergency my husband and children can reach me even if my phone is in airplane mode.
Is there anyway to change the notification of missed calls, so it shows up on the home screen similar to how new messages, SMS or voice mails show up. The little notification Icon at the top of the screen in the status bar is way to small and gets lost among all the other notifications. Not looking for something that blinks or changes the color of my LED.
I'm on Virgin Mobile, LB Optimus F3 4G LTE (it wasn't an option in the forums, so I came here instead). Not sure if this is an Android feature or an LG feature.
Anyway, this thing called "Quiet Mode" will randomly turn itself on at nighttime or in the middle of the day with no warning and silence all sounds and block calls from all contacts. This is obviously frustrating. I'm not bumping it in my pocket or anything -- you can't even turn this mode on without unlocking the screen and scrolling all the way over in my top pull-down bar. For instance, it's been sitting on the chair next to me for the last two hours and I just checked it and it's been in Quiet Mode for who knows how long.
I can add contacts to the allowed calls list, but I still won't hear the ring, and I can only add a limited number of contacts. Also, all the writing within this mode is really poor English, which is odd. Example: "Please mind that incoming calls with exactly the same numbers with below list will only be allowed." Anyway, it can be scheduled for certain times and I'm going to try scheduling it for just one minute from 4:00 - 4:01 AM every night and see if that satiate its compulsion to be in control.
Any ways I can keep it from doing this otherwise? It doesn't appear to be an app that I can fiddle with.
Does anyone know how to get an audible notification for a missed call.I have tried the "Missed Call" application but it doesn't seem to give an audible notification.It will vibrate.I have a Nexus One and am really disappointed that this function isn't available on what is supposed to be a great phone.
I have written a little application that gives LED notification for missed calls. (the default behaviour gives you only LED notifications for SMS, email and voicemail).
Features: Customizable sound, vibration, led, repeat notifications for missed calls, incoming calls, sms, bluetooth enabled/disabled, bluetooth device connected, airplane mode, battery level low, etc. Version 0.8.9 includes a Locale plug-in! For all the Droid users make sure that you have got "Missed Call for Android 2.0" installed. You can try it out if you want.
If the user clicks on the Notification, the onCreate() method is called. But I want that a specific method in my app is called, or if the app is not in the foreground, that it is brought back to the foreground. I know there are lots of tutorials that explain how to handle notifications, but I just don't understand them completely and wasn't ever able to implement the things like I'd like to.
I am going to play music using the music icon mind you not pandora or google listen at an event for a little over an hour and a half and when the phone (Moto Droid) is silenced it still interrupts the music a little whether it be a text or a phone call.
