Motorola Droid :: How Do I Enter The + Sign When Calling A International Number?
Feb 9, 2010
I need to dial a number in Germany which would be +49... now since i can't make that call with my verizon plan i bought a CBS phone card. so i hit 1 for English, 2 for international etc. then when i need to enter the number, on my old phone it worked fine by holding 0 for a while to dial +49. but for some reason that doesn't work with the droid. any ideas?
I am developing in android and I would like an input field for numbers, where the user can select the correct number using the plus sign at the top and the minus sign at the bottom of the input field. I know this works for date picker. Is there some property or something similar to make this available for any integer number input field?
I'd like to know whether it's possible to have phone numbers converted into international format when a call is outgoing.
For instance, if a french user (sorry it's the only format i know i won't make a mistake :-) try to call with the national format : 01.47.12.34.56 then a method will convert it into international format like this : +18.104.22.168.34.56
I've looked into the doc of the PhoneNumberUtils but i don't know if there is a method doing what i want.
Been calling home on my incredible for a couple of months now and got a nasty surprise when I got my bill.I decided to download Google Voice to call internationally as I found it's rates to be cheaper than Skype.Bill came in and again to my surprise it seems I'm getting charged by Verizon and GV now.SO what is the cheapest way to call internationally from my android phone.is it Skype, do you know a fix for GV, the international plan from Verizon (f that) or another app.
I'm heading to Halifax, Nova Scotia for a week and will be bringing my Hero with me. I'll be calling Sprint customer support to see what options are available for voice and data, but I trust the advice of folks in this forum.
Is there any international voice and data plan that i can sign up for so that I don't end up paying sky-high roaming rates? I really don't want to have to keep my phone in airplane mode the whole week. Any advice from travelers to the "Great White North" would really be appreciated, eh?
i have a Gmail account setup with a pop account tied to my Gmail. on my phone I only have the Gmail account. It does show an @ sign when i get pop mail via Gmail however it doesn't show up as a number on the mail icon. only when i get a true Gmail email does it show up as a number on the icon. once i go into mail and preview the email (pop) it will show as a number on the icon. any ideas?
For those of you who have and use Google Voice on your Droid. Is there any way to use GV when you manually enter a number? I get the choice to use GV from my contacts list but not when I manually enter the number. Has anyone else had this issue? Please only respond if you have and use Google Voice. I'm sorry I don't have any invites so please don't ask.I also appologize if that sounds harsh but I've read through some of the other GV posts and no one really seems to answer the question.
So every time someone calls me when it gets to the point where they should be able to leave a voicemail, it asks them to enter a subscriber number. I know that at that point they need to enter my phone number to leave a VM, but is there anyway to change that so they dont need to enter my number again? Sprint support cant figure it out either...
Background; I am in the process of writing an Android messaging application that needs to know the current user's phone number. This is then used to connect to other users using the application. My application relies on looking up the user's number from Android's Settings -> About Phone -> Phone identity -> Phone number (this can at times be blank.. but that is a separate problem). I am assuming that the above Phone number contains the user's full number. ie, my UK Android phone shows my number as: +447832xxxxxxxx, where 44 is the UK's international dialing code and 7832 is the operator. Is it safe to assume that all Androids phones would include the international dialing code, which starts with +? I would be indebted if any Android users could have a quick look at their Android settings and confirm whether Phone number is displayed as +international code+operator+number, i.e. US Android sets start with +1xxxxxx.
I have just bought myself a HTC Hero, but there's a thing I can't figure out.
On a specific contact person that is categorized under the "phone" (not google, exchange or anything else) listing, is it possible to enter more than one cell phone number for instance?? On the other hand, it seems to be possible to enter more than 1 home phone number for instance - also more than 1 work phone number....
Is this correct? Is there any way around this other than entering a new entry for this person with just the missing cell phone number?
Is there any way to make google voice calls to an international number (from the US to South Korea) for free using the Google Voice app on my Dx? How do I make sure Google Voice is making the call and that I am not being charged international fees?
I have a Samsung galaxy s vibrant.. One phone drops the area code from one of my contacts when i select them from my contact list or try to respond to texts they send.... I therefore have to enter their number manually everytime i want to respond or start a conversation.... this happens with no other contact......
For something like a 'help I can't get up' app -- is there a way for a user to set a contact number, and then for the app to call that number in the future WITHOUT the user initiating the dialout? I've tried the below but there seems to be a problem. Code...
So ya, there's a phone in my HTC Hero. No surprise.
My problem is this: I find that the easiest way to call a person is to go to the phone app and scroll through the call history displayed to find the person I wish to call. Once I see their name, I just press on it, and the call begins. Unfortunately, a friend I call often may use their house phone or cell phone when I only ever want to call their cell (Evo ). Often, the situation is that I previously talked to him on his house phone, and I'm calling him in the middle of the night (we're young; we don't sleep rational hours during the summer... or ever). Unfortunately for me, my call usually bugs his parents, and I get reprimanded...
Is there a setting that allows me to only call his cell, or do I just need to break this habit?
Full disclosure: There are millions of us semi-old guys who need reading glasses, but have perfect sight for everything else. We need the ability to use a larger font for the calling number. Its OK if the caller is in the contact list, but if it's not I really want to read the number quickly and decide yes/no on taking the call. Grabbing the readers takes time, and can be sketchy when driving.
When anyone calls me it just shows 'unknown' these are not blocked numbers and the the people calling me are in the contacts list (on sim & on phone) so their name should really come up. how do i get their name or just simply a phone number to come up when they call me. what am i missing?
Is there a way to hide my phone number when calling out? I came over from BlackBerry, where there is simply an option to "hide" my phone number on outgoing calls... but I can't seem to do this with my Eris. Someone once suggested that I prefix my contacts with *69... but that seems to prevent caller id from working properly, which just trades one issue for another.
If possible, I would prefer to be selective with who I do this with (it's okay for personal contacts to see my number... but it's not okay for business contacts to see my number).
Lots of people are complaining about the d-pad's existence and being on the right side instead of the left but what's not being discussed is how the d-pad functions. Is it simply a 4 way directional pad or does it also have a press functionality as the gold center would suggest? For instance, I could select various links on a web page and then press the dpad down to follow the link?
My Droid finally arrived. I'm trying to log in to an account, and my password contains a pipe symbol "|", which doesn't seem to be on the keyboard or in the list of symbols in alt-sym. I also notice that don't see back quote "` Is there a way to enter these or do I need to start changing my passwords so that they don't contain these?
I have handcent but i swear it slows down the phone i just want to know there a away where i can use the enter button to send while i have my keyboard out to send messages rather then tapping the screen to send?
