HTC Magic :: Screen Lock Not Working - No Silent Mode
Nov 7, 2009
the screen has stopped locking. When i press the end call button the phone sleeps but the screen doesnt lock. I do have the 'require pattern' etc selected in the settigs, so it should work. it used to work, can anyone tell me how to get it back? spare parts doesnt work. Also, When i press and hold the end call button, the only option that appears is 'power off'. It used to say flight mode and silent mode too. Finally it appears that my phone will not receive calls. texts and outgoings fine, but no calls any help really would help, and i would like to avoid doing a hard reset.
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.
I am plan B and AVG security installed, both don't always work, I have pattern lock on the phone but even in pattern lock mode when i press and hold power button the phone gives me option to shutdown.
If someone steals my phone they will be able to shut it off without unlocking it since holding down power button still works. So is there a way to lock the power button from shutting off phone when the phone is in pattern unlock mode?
I'm the proud owner of the HTC Magic on Vodafone UK. I'm loving the Android.I have to say that after 5 days of owning this device I'm only left scratching my head on one point the auto-orientation of the home screen.I've seen videos of rooted G1's running the hacked 1.5 firmware and the recently posted video of the Samsung i7500 with the 1.5 firmware all CLEARLY show that when the device is on home screen, the desktop (read home screen) auto-rotates depending on the orientation of the device. The Samsung video shows it working in ALL FOUR orientations!This doesn't happen on my Magic . Flip the orientation in an application? Works fine. Flip it back in an application? Works fine. Do it on the home screen?Am I missing something? Is this a feature that is disabled in the offical 1.5 Cupcake release? If that's the case - fine with me. I'll stop scratching my head and move on.
new to this site as never had any problems with my magic till today, my 2 year old to my horror threw it against the wall and the battery etc fell out, Fortunatly when i examined it there was no damage screen wasnt cracked or damaged or anything, however since ive turned it back on theres safe mode in transparetn writing at the bottom left of the screen and the touch screen doesnt work and every time i go into a process such as say contacts , i get the 'the process android.process.acore has stopped please try again everything works like i say i can go online but obviously without the use of the touch screen i cant type, nor can i send texts due to the lack of touchscreen so what can i do HELP PLEASE Or do i have to face facts and get in touch with my insurance ?
I am a bit new to Android Environment and i am trying to make a snooper application. that is when ever some one enter wrong password on lock screen the front camera will automatically take a picture in invisible mode. Any source code how to do that. i have completed one component that is accessing camera and taking picture with camera but the problem is now that i don't know how to access and use the lock screen wrong password event.
I've had my Hero for less than 48 hours and twice no it goes into silent mode for no reason and when I turn silent mode off the sound still doesn't work unless I reboot. Is this a glitch that can be easily remedied or should I take it back. I still have 12 days to decide whether to keep it or not.
I'm not sure what's going on with my Evo, but all of a sudden it's been deciding to put itself in silent mode for no apparent reason and I'm missing tons of calls because of it. I will turn the sound back on and then all of a sudden it's off after a couple of hours for no apparent reason. I don't want to have to return the phone, but I'm not sure what other options I have at this point. Has anyone heard of this issue?
Just noticed this this morning (don't think it's happened before).. this is my second evo (0003 buld), had it for a few days.This morning (after having gone to bed last night and putting it on silent), i got a text and my phone started going off.Set it back to silent, and a few minutes later, it went off again after getting another text.Changed it to silent again and literally sat and watched the phone (w/ screen on) and watched it change back to "normal" on its own.Tried the same thing w/ vibe and after about 30-40 seconds it went back to normal on its own.I already did a hard reset/wipe and its still doing the same thing. I have nothing off the wall installed (that I didnt have on my 0002 device, and it wasnt doing this).
I had set the Hero to "silent mode" (by long-pressing the power-off button and selecting "silent mode"). A crossed-out quaver appeared in the notification bar to confirm that the phone was silenced. However an alarm has just gone off very audibly. What have I done wrong?
There have been some complaints floating around that the Emergency Call on the lock screen is not working. You click it and the screen just goes blank, anybody else seeing this. They better fix this fast, or there could be a potential Lawsuit in the making.
My phone has a really annoying habit. Every night before I go to sleep. I switch it to silent mode. But if a call or a text message comes through overnight it vibrates. The next morning I find that the phone is now in vibrate mode. I did have Foxy Ring installed, although it was not activated. I wondered whether it could have anything to do with this, but I've now removed it from the phone, but the irritating behaviour persists. Short of turning the phone off overnight, how can I get a quiet night's sleep?
I've noticed that my notifications were sporadic, both from e-mail and messages. I think I even missed a call once and was surprised because I never heard it ring/vibrate. After some testing I think I've figured out that when the phone is in my pocket, and I'm sitting at my office desk, the phone is face down in that same, fairly flat level position, that turns the ringer off if you flip your phone over on a desk while in a meeting. Is there any way to turn this feature off?
Any way to quickly hit a button to mute the phone when you go to sleep? Don't like my phone ringing when I am sleeping. On my G2 I just hold the power button and the mute option pops up. Or if I power on I can slide it to the right which mutes the phone. Side it left and it powers on. My gf has the HTC Desire Z I cant seem to find it. Only way I found out was to adjust the volume to lowest setting but this takes time there must be an easier way.
I'm wondering if there's any sort of temporary mute app. I'm oftentimes in meetings or on a phone call on speaker phone in my office, and my cell phone starts making all sorts of notification noises, so I'll turn the sound off. Problem is, I forget to turn the sound back on. I'd love an app that lets me tell it to go into silent mode, but come out in, say, 15 minutes. Does it exist?
I double check to make sure my phone is not on silent mode before going to sleep because I use my alarm clock on my phone (stock alarm clock). I run ATK before sleeping then turn on my alarm clock because running ATK last will kill your alarm. When I wake up I notice my phone is set to Silent mode on (holding down power button). What is the best way to fix this so I can actually get up on time with my alarm clock working properly?
I recently bought my first Android: an HTC Hero. I really like it, but there's something that doesn't quite work as expected: When I put my phone in "silent mode", and I set an alarm (Clock application) to wake me up in the morning, the alarm doesn't sound in the morning. Other cell phone alarms do trigger when the phone is in silent mode. I don't think this is such an exceptional scenario: I want my phone to be quiet all night: no calls, no SMS's, no email notifications. But I do want it to wake me up in the morning. Any ideas on how to accomplish this?
I use Ear to set my ringer profile and it seems to work great. However the ringer volume often goes to silent mode, because I unintentional push the ringer volume button and I miss the calls. Does anyone have a solution for this? Is it possible to turn of the ringer volume button on the Hero?
I just got my droid x last week and I like it. I only have a couple problems. One I can't seem to getnmy phone to vibrate when receiving txts or calls when in silent mode. I went into settings and I have vibrate set to only vibrate in silent mode but it doesn't.Also it may be just me but it seems like other phones I have the in call volume was extremely loud. My old phone I could hear the person clear as day even holding the phone away from me. With the droid x I have volume maxes out but its not white as loud. Its not that bad I can still hear but I was just wondering. My other speakers such as media work great and are extremely loud. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thank you and God bless.
Truly enjoying my EVO. On old blackberry, I could set profile to silent and assign number exceptions that would still ring through (eg wife, family etc). Is there such a setting on the EVO? I want to keep phone on silent during night, but also want critical calls to ring through. Any thoughts??
is there an app that can override the silent mode if there's a notification for a certain app?There's a lot of app that override silent mode if someone calls / sms you. But i want to do it for an app because i've been tracking a website and i need it to notify me even when i sleep that it has changed.
Sometimes when my phone is on silent and I turn it off and reboot it, it plays all the start up sounds as its loading. Sometimes, it does not. I hate this, because at work (in a spa) I keep my purse in my cabinet, and I don't love for it to play a bunch of sounds when it is supposed to be on silent. This is the only thing that makes any noise when the phone is on silent, and its only sometimes.
I got reports from some users that after making the phone silent with my application, sometimes, text messages or emails still make sounds. I don't have a phone so this is why I am asking. The application is making the phone silent this way:
final AudioManager am = (AudioManager) context.getSystemService (Context.AUDIO_SERVICE); am.setRingerMode(AudioManager.RINGER_MODE_SILENT);
Is there a application or a way to have the phone vibrate but have messages come in silently? Sometimes I need to have alerts silent, and be able to tell that there is a phone call, other times I need to have both message alerts and phone calls be audible. I'm looking for a way to quickly do this.
