I just published a Hands-Free texting app called Shout. Just say a phrase like "Text Doug With I am On My Way Home" and Shout will search your contacts for matches, confirm "Sending 'I am on my way home' to 'Doug Hansknecht', correct?". Simply tap the Big Green Yes button and you're done.
I am getting my first Android phone on monday, and I want to alleviate some of my bill with AT&T, so i was thinking of getting just the talk and 2GB of data a month. But I was wondering if anyone knew how the apps like Handscent send their text messages, and if they do. do you know how much data that takes up each time you send / receive a text? I want to make sure I won't go over my 2GB a month (screw them for not having unlimited data anymore)
Since my car stereo doesn't have an aux input I am looking for a good fm transmitter. I used to have an Alpine car stereo for my iPhone, but I don't own an iPhone any longer so I put my factory stereo back in I basically wanted to forget anything associated with an iPhone as you can tell
I'm finally going to make the jump over to android from winmo this week after years of loyalty but the one thing that could sway my decision is the ability to do t9 texting. yeah i know there are all these new fangled ways to text like swype but imo nothing beats the simplicity of a 9 button predictive layout I played with my brother's incredible which had it but i'm unsure if that was an HTC thing or not. So are all android keyboards the same with the same option and if not does anyone know if the X will have t9 text?
The vibrate feature for my text and email alerts no longer functions. It is just completely silent (ringer is off, but phone is set to vibrate, not silent). I have the setting for Also Vibrate on Notification checked so my setting are right, it seems. The vibration works for incoming calls, but not my alerts... I did have locale installed which is the only app I can imagine messing with it. I have uninstalled Locale but the problem persists.
I have had a slider phone for years and could text super fast. Then I switched to an Eris where I had the option of using the qwerty keyboard on landscape OR I could hold it upright and use the numeric keyboard with T9 like I did on my slider. I always held it upright and was very happy. I was having reception issues with my eris so I traded it for a Moto Droid. Is there an option for the numeric type of keyboard becuase it takes me friggin forever to type a text.
So i have my contacts in my phone, fine and dandy, when i first got my phone i accidently synched facebook contacts with my phone, meaning every person on my facebook with a phone # on their fb was imported into my phone, you know as well as i do, 90% of our fb friends arent phone contact friends, so i unsynched fb..now the issue im having is this. If i go into messaging, and in the To: feild i start to type a persons name in my contact to text them, for some people it doesnt show up, altho if u go into my contacts their name is clearly there. The other issue, is when i start to type names, it still brings up peoples names and numbers from FB altho their contact isnt saved in my phone..so everytime i wanna text someone i hasve to goto contacts, find them, clickhold and select text contact..kind of annoying for mass texts ect....
It seems like every now and then when I'm texting my 3g service goes out and is now 1x.. i live in a small town so do you think this is normal? it has been doing this since i got it. I heard handcent is really good. is that more bugles then the default texting app on the droid?
I think I read it on here a while back, but can't find the post, about setting up an autoreply for texting. Something along the lines of "I am currently driving and cannot read nor respond to your message," that you turn on and off like an email "Out of Office" reply. Anyone know if there is an app that does this?
Is there a way to have a pic. show up in place of the android dude when texting?
Like it shows the other person's pic next to their text when msging but when you reply it shows only a cartoon image of the android dude for you. Is there a way to change that picture? I can't seem to locate it.
12-1:30 "texting, downloading youtube videos and listing to music on droid live" dropped from 100% to 60% from 1:30-6:45 "listening to droid live but probably lost connection half way through the night" 60%-0%
i also have wifi and gps on all the time, settings for brightness is automatic. cpu set 550min to 880max. and have juicy defender free running. also tons of widgets "about 3 screens full of widgets. and lookout defender/set cpu/ nimbuzz/ battery status running in the notification bar. to me it looks like its fine, but what i noticed after really looking at the plot is the battery power drops 10% almost every 30 minutes during heavy use. and a hour between 10% drops and its almost on the dot to.
With low use - screen at almost 0, pandora for less an hour, browsing for less then an hour and some mild txting/emailing, my phones about to die. I rarely get 8 hours of use like this. Screen times out at 15 seconds, all GPS, WiFi and BT off......all the tricks and tips.
I am thinking of exchangin it, but i really dont want to have to re-install all my apps and widgets, input all my contacts and re-set everything up like I have it. ive had the phone since day 1, and have spent a ton of time tweaking it how i like it.
Is this info stored on the SD card so it can be easily swapped over to the new phone?
Do you have a problem with the letter "C" always popping up where you don't want it when your texting or entering info via the tap screen? This is so annoying! LOL! I keep forgetting I have the slide up keyboard to use sometimes.
So here's the thing, my battery life before the update was incredible (20 + hours.) I received the update, and now by battery barely lasts 11 hours with little to no use at all. What's going on? Will Verizon give me a free new battery if I argue in the case of a defect?
