Nexus :: Getting A Red Circle With Number 2 In It On Status Bar
Jan 12, 2010
hey, ever since installing the swype beta (which sucks on this phone btw) im getting a red cirlce with a number 2 over it in the status bar. Im pretty sure it is related to swype but im not sure what its trying to tell me...any help?is there any app that takes screen shots so i can post up?
When I have a status bar notification with a number inside, it shows the number fine. But later if I show another notification to replace this one, with no number, it shows an empty red circle. This circle shouldn't be there. How do I remove the red circle? See image here: http://jump.fm/UYHGV.
I want to know if there is a way to change the phone number in Settings> About Phone > Status. It's strange - I've only had the phone a few days, got one at the same time as my wife. For some reason the Phone number according to my device is my wife's number although it definitely has my SIM card in the slot and is functioning with the right number. Whereas my wife's device reads unknown in this field. How can I change it to my number?
Not really a "problem" per se, but an annoyance.I ported my number across to Orange from Voda but in the Phone Status the MSISDN field is still displaying the old number. It's not that I can't remember my number (it's a memorable no. which is why I wanted to keep it), but it's annoying me as I can't seem to get this field to reflect the change.I've tried rebooting it after leaving the SIM out but no difference.Is this just a "bug" or is it something Orange will have to fix/update for me by sending a request to my SIM or something?
You know what I'm talking about: for example when you get multiple new emails the notification icon in the status bar is augmented with a little red circle that contains number of unread mails. Twitroid has the same icon. Any idea how it's done? I don't think (or so I hope) there are 10000 similar icons. Is this red circle generated and overlaid the notification icon?
I actually like the stock Sms app before the update, my contacts showed their facebook updates. Now with the update all they show is their number and a picture right next to every message. Does chomp or handcent show status updates on individual contacts?
Is there a way to mute audio notification of new emails without also suppressing notifications in the status bar? I get way too much email to have it play a sound every time one comes in, but I do still want to be able to see at a glance when I have new messages I've figured out how to change the ringtone, but there's no option to use no ringtone at all. I'm hoping there's a better solution than recording a blank ringtone!
I'm running 4.4.2 on nexus 5. All I'm trying to do is put a custom carrier logo image in the top left of my status bar. I used the method in this thread- [URL] to do it. Although this is for ICS roms specifically, I compared both status_bar.xml's from KK and ICS and they are VERY simlar. So I figured this would work. I like to do most of my themeing with the use of zip themer so I built a custom image (yes, its the correct size) called "carrier_logo.png" and stuck it my drawable-xxhdpi folder and added that line of code to my status_bar.xml and flashed the update.zip. When I reboot, the phone is in chaos and I get a repeated message over and over that systemUI has stopped, plus my status bar is completely gone lol. I'm assuming that line of code is just not compatible with KK systemui. So...how do I go about calling an image from my drawable-xxhdpi folder into the status bar's top left corner from my status_bar.xml?
Is it possible to get the black status bar similar to the Sense UI bar without rooting the phone? I don't want to root my phone b/c I love everything else but I want that status bar really bad. Any ideas?
I picked up a Nexus One last week from someone who got it from the TED Conference. Apparently Google also gave out a SIM card with a month of service on T-Mobile. When I go to Settings / Call settings / Voicemail settings and the number shows the number that was given at the TED Conference, which is the old SIM. I keep changing it to my phone number as I am using my SIM. It takes the changes but if I reboot the phone, it reverts back to the old number.
My Nexus One reports "My phone number" (Settings => "About phone" => Status ) - as the SIM number before my "previous 'phone" number was PAC'd and ported... The PAC transfer happened about 3 weeks ago.,... The phone appears when calling anyone else as my transferred number, rings when called as the transferred number, ... but the beast reports the original, old" number. As it happens I've also done a "Factory reset" on the N1 ... Weird... so everything works as it should do, but the number is miss-reporting...
Any suggestions...e.g. ???? a) It's just one of those things, deal with it.. b) It's a known Android bug, deal with it... c) It's a Nexus-One special, deal with it... d) Oh! New one, report it to Mssrs Google... e) HTC dogs all behave like this....
Basically I'm trying to get my Wife/teens to stop using carrier text messaging without having to explain to them how to use two different applications to send texts.
Doesn't have to be Google voice, really any app that will act as the default messaging app and when texts come in over the Verizon number and they reply to the text the recipient gets the "free" text number to respond to will work - Gvoice just seemed like the easy choice.
What I'm looking to do is change the reply-to number that gets sent to text message recipients from the default messaging app, Go SMS or Handcent SMS. What I do NOT want to do is have two separate text messaging apps. I want all texts to come from one application.
The idea here is to avoid paying Verizon text messaging charges and eventually block carrier text messaging altogether by using Google voice to send/receive all SMS.
Ideally this is how it would work - When a friend sends me a txt using my Verizon number I get a notification. I click reply and then press send and one of two things happens:
1. Instead of sending the text over Verizon's network the text automatically sends it through Google voice and my friend sees my Google voice number and replies to it, essentially encouraging them to use the new phone number but seamless from my perspective.
2. Another alternative is to send the text message over Verizon's SMS network but have the reply-to number be my Google voice number so when they reply it will go through Google voice.
While #1 will more quickly reduce the number of text messages sent through the carrier network what's most important is I'm using the same app for all texting.
I don't mind purchasing an app that can do this either.
I'm new to openGL and I have done some first tests with drawing a triangle. Now I would like to draw a circle, which is filled with a texture, but I have no idea, how to do so.Can someone of you give me a hint?
I'm currently running xtrSENSE 4.2 and was wondering if anyone has a circle battery with the percent inside zip I can D/L and flash? I've been searching and haven't found a zip and I'm not comfortable with renaming files or running commands/prompts. If anyone can point me in the right direction.
I already have a circle dock on my computer but it would be awesome If could get it on my phone. Ive actually seen pictures of one. someone said it was a widget but couldn't remember what it was called or where he got it. So does anyone know what it is?
I am running SkyRaider 2.5.2 Vanilla and would like the round battery icon with the percentages. I have tried a few that I found but all of them altered the original look of the ROM and I really like the ROM the way it is. Does anyone know of one that won't mess up the look of the ROM?
i have noticed that when i finish a call or when i unlock the phone sometimes the timer circle appears in the middle of the screen and i can see the home screen appearing in the background, i have a task killer installed but its not set to stop any of the android phone services, just wondered if anyone else gets this , its a pain as you have to wait for stuff to load before you can use the phone
I have to recommend just getting a book on the subject.I learned most everything off of examples and documents on the web.After several months, I finally picked up the blue book and everything I had scoured to find is clearly demonstrated in it.Look for the red book and the blue "superbible."They cover everything you need.There are also books specific to ES.Make sure to get a good 1.1 one and not a 2.0-only one.
