I have Wildfire with 3 network and they have installed Skype on it. But whenever I get calls from Skype I don't know who is calling since it only gives a specific number but not the name (ID) of the person. Anyone knows how can I change the settings of Skype so that instead of number the name 9ID) should appear?
On HTC's website, the Wildfire phone is said to be all quiet when you turn it upside down. So when I got mine, I tried putting it upside down and calling it from another phone. It didn't work. I found no settings on the phone and nothing in the manual. Anyone facing the same problem?
My dad is going overseas and has a BlackBerry Storm with Skype and I have a Droid with Skype. Can I call him overseas for free using skype? I know that if we both used our laptops to talk it would be free, so is there any difference in using skype mobile to skype mobile?
When I hit the "phone" button on my HTC wildfire it brings up all my contacts on both my SIM card and in the phone memory. Is there anyway that I can see just the SIM card contacts as it shows up all of my contacts twice! When I hit the HTC people button it will just bring up a list of each contact only once, but this takes a few seconds to load.
I was wondering if there are any applications for free or cheap international SMS available for android (wildfire). I found a application with the name Free SMS in market but that doesn't work and get disconnected from Internet every time.
I bought myself the HTC Wildfire about a week back. I have a few questions regarding the wallpaper and the lock screen resolution.
The Wildfire screen resolution is 240x320. What should the ideal resolution be for my lock screen and wallpaper images?
When I set a 240x320 image as wallpaper or lock screen it appears very pixelated. However, when using resolutions of 640x480 and above, the wallpaper looks great but the lock screen is still pixelated. Also, when selecting the lock screen image I can't select the whole thing. Parts always get cropped.
Somehow the HTC backgrounds that are present on the phone don't look as pixelated although they are of a lower resolution.
I'd like to know if it is possible to get an app or change the settings so that message contents won't be shown on the top of the screen?I've managed to get Handcent which allows me to stop the contents to be shown at the bottom of the screen
I have a 1 day old wildfire and have an annoying problem with my apps and widgets disappearing from the main screens. The apps and widgets that go are the one I put on it myself. It then replaces them with the one that are on the phone from new.
Hope I haven't missed anything obvious, had wildfire for about a week, all ok.Now suddenly, I can only connect either my laptop or wildfire to wifi, not both at the same time, only started happening a couple of days ago.can anyone help please?
I have an unbranded HTC Wildfire, but it doesn't download any firmware updates. At the moment my software number is 18.104.22.168 and I know that there's an update to 1.25.405.1. But when I want to check for Software updates it says that there are none. What might be the problem?
Is it possible that the phone is still branded but without a sim-lock? Because I get T-Mobile start up screen,but use whole other SIM and there's no T-Mobile in the country i'm from.
what's the best video format to use on the Wildfire? I have successfully used 3GP, but, the quality isn't that good.According to the official HTC website, it supports MP4 and WMV, I tried converting an .avi to MP4 using OJO Soft Total Video converter, transferred it to phone, it shows up in the Gallery, but, when I try to play it, it just displays a static picture and plays the audio. Also, the only way to put it off, is to take the battery out as the phone totally freezes!
Does anyone know a way to get all the birthdays that are listed under people to show on the calendar......i know if i sync to FB i can get all the birthdays from there but only want the people on my contacts birthdays?
I have a nokia bluetooth car kit that supports voice dialing, my ancient nokia 6230i had voice dialing and I miss it on my wildfire. I see from some other threads that this seems to be an issue. Has there been any update on voice dialing on the lastest wildfire or are there any apps that enable voice dialing?
after 2 failed attempts of installing copilot on my wildfire im assuming its not compatible? On their website its not showing the wildfire but i guess thats because the phone is just released.Have sent them an email but while I wait on reply was wondering if anyone on the forum new otherwise? Btw this is my first android and im very much loving my new toy! Screen res is not a problem (previously had N86) although the camera is the only thing im disappointed with.
I am not happy with the sync thingy or it's attempt to use itunes. I wanted to get away from itunes/ Apple altogether.I have had a go at media monkey but it is a long way off filling my needs.But I have found Sony's Media Go.Media Go: Download - Sony Media Software and Services Inc.It is not perfect by a long shot but at least my Wildfire can use the playlists it creates and does a nice job on getting my podcasts in some kind of order.
The thing I miss most from my itunes/iphone setup is play count and ability to manage the correct placement of folders on the wildfire.Please can we have a discussion on your setup on this matter and what you peeps use for your media management.
I wanna change APN settings in a phone. Looked the api and there is a content provider named ACTION_APN_SETTINGS developer.android.com/reference/android/provider/Settings.html#ACTION_APN_SETTINGS but I'm having a hard time figuring out how to use it. Is there any example or something that does not involve the "contacts" content provider?
