Samsung Epic 4G :: Way To Wake Phone Up Without Sliding Out Keyboard?
Sep 3, 2010
While on a call and using speaker how do i wake the phone up without sliding out keyboard ? keybeeetsss ~ i thought i found the answer and it was a dumb question but looking back its not because i didn't find answer.
I am looking for a case that will prevent the keyboard from sliding out. I know I will more than likely not find what I am looking for because the slide out keyboard is a selling point for this phone, but mine keeps sliding out in my pocket and I am concerned that the open portion of the keyboard might bend, flex or crack if it is bent the wrong way. Maybe I am being paranoid, but it never hurts to be preventative
I've tried looking at the videos and pics, but I am unable to see if there is a Tab key. The Tab key is very nice for completing online forms and logins. The original Touch Pro had this key, but they ditched it on the 2nd version.
Anyone know about this yet? Or does Android have another way for tabbing?
I currently have an issue with the epic. its not the battery issue or gps but the keyboard input. Sometimes at sporadic times (not every time)when I type a random letter or character I have to press a button two times to replicate the character or space and I'm a fast keyboard typer and its been bothering me lately and I'm wondering if anyone else has those issues? I already have went to sprint and had them exchanged the phone and the new phone still to no avail does the same thing. I thought it was Advanced task killer that may have caused my phone to be acting weird but I hard reset the phone and still no avail. Maybe its just a bad keyboard? both times? the phone is an august build and battery is also an august build. I'm at work right now and plan to hit the sprint repair store near home. I just want to know if anyone else has this issue? So I dont want to look like an idiot to the tech.
My keyboard is constantly sliding out when in my pocket or other times when I don't want it to. Really annoying. I like the phone but am not sold on the quality of it at all. I think I am taking it back and waiting for the passion.
I'm looking for some type of patch that would allow me to answer calls and enable speakerphone by just sliding out my keyboard on my Lg Ally. I do have some experience in coding, so if someone could point me in the right direction,
Does anyone know if it's possible to unlock the screen by simply sliding the keyboard open? My Moment does that and it's annoying as I end up pocket dialing people or opening up programs because the keyboard slide on it gets jarred and unlocks the screen.This will be a deal breaker for me between the Epic 4G and EVO.
I know this has been mentioned a hundred times...but...anyone else seeing the keyboard getting looser and looser? even when the phone is closed the top screen part seems to wiggle up and down and seems to be getting a bit looser then when I first had it...If you gently try to lift the top screen upwards away from the keyboard (while in closed position, the top screen moves away from the keyboard for me by about a 1/16th of an inch.
I know it sounds paranoid and I may just be being OCD, but is anyone else having this problem?
And before you say it I know slider keyboards often have this problem. I've had sliders before...I just don't recall if any of them got this loose this quick
They function key has a few weird stains on it that look like dirt or coffee stains. Those were there when I first got the phone. Is there any method to clean it without messing up the phone? If it involves buying some sort of cleaning solution, please suggest something I will use for other purposes other than this one issue.
I've started a few threads here n other places about the physical keyboard issue. many other ppl have to came forward having the exact issue where it does not recognize inputs. as noted, in some apps this is worse then others. stock browser I have this issue frequently so I dl xscope and at first all was ok then after decent amount of browsing issue would happen more frequent. stock sms the issue happens a lot so I try handcent and at first all was amazing then it would happen a lot again . . tried chomp and same deal. if I hard reset my phone the kb works good on most apps for a lil, then issue occurs again. does anyone who is advanced in diagnostics on these devices think this may be an angle at looking at the issue for a fix ? and if so could a custom ROM be a way at avoiding this issue ? I've never flashed a device on winmo or android but extremely love this device to the point where I would to regain a normal keyboard .. anyone have insight here ?
I'd like to remap some of the keys on the PHYSICAL keyboard. For example, I've never inserted a smiley in a message and don't intend to start now, so remaping the dedicated smiley key to something useful would be productive.
Does anybody know if it's possible to slide open the keyboard, but keep the screen locked? I couldn't find any settings connected to this, but even when the keyboard would slide (just a little), the phone would automatically turn on and unlock. I want to prevent that from happening.
I was just wondering if anyone's screen has a slight wobble with the keyboard extended out? Mine does, if everyone's is like that I'll just get over it, but it doesn't seem like it should have any give at all.
Home screen used to do landscape immediate and always. Now it doesn't do landscape at all unless I slide the keyboard out and it pops into landscape immediately. Then when I close the keyboard it goes back to portrait even when I'm holding the phone in landscape. Not sure how to fix this, help please.
I have a new Samsung Captivate. Sometimes it requires a Password to be entered upon Wake. How do you stop this? All I want to do is slide to unlock. Yes, I have checked Menu->Settings->Location and Security. I do not know what is requiring me to enter a password in order to stop it.
Is there an app or setting to force the phone to "wake up" when a new notification comes in (gmail, sms, calendar, etc...). I find it easy to miss notifications when the phone is locked and it would be nice for the screen to turn on when a new notification is received.
I realized yesterday that I'm killing my battery life by having my Droid sliding open while in my pocket. I never really paid attention to it, the sliding open never really bothered me, until I realized that basically my phone was sliding open, coming on, then closing, then opening again. Does anyone use a case that keeps it from opening?
Just bought my wife her first Android phone, an original Droid (A855). Seems they're on sale everyhwere since the release of the X. Anyway, she absolutely HATES that Motoblur green side-pulling tab thing for answering a phone call. She just can't seem to get the hang of it. Is there some way to change that, or is there an app available that will change the interface and just give her a simple button to push for answering a call?
New to Android and new to this forum. I've converted from a blackberry and I can't tell you how much I love my Captivate. Well, enough of that :-) I have a few questions. I currently have my display set to time out after one minute. When I'm using the music player is there anyway to prevent the screen from locking. I have having to unlock it to switch tracks.
As a side, is there a way to change the locking system from a sliding pattern to a number code?
My charging cable doesn't seem to plug all the way in when pressed. The phone charges fine, but I am wondering if that is the normal fit or not. It is almost like the sliding door doesn't open wide enough.
