Just got my Fascinate and want to know if there is a way to have my phone audible/vibrate alert me when a text message comes in while I am on a voice call. I left my daughter sitting at school for 30mins the other night since I didn't see the message until I hung up from my voice call! If I can't find a way to have this feature I might have to switch to the X!
a) set the native text appl so that there is no content preview in the notification bar, or
b) with Handcent still have the special puzzle piece show up on your lock screen when you have a new text message?
I really liked how that puzzle piece showed up but now it is gone and I suspect it is ever since I installed Handcent and I don't know how to get it back.
Follow up question -- if I go back to the native text app, is there a way to increase the font size of incoming and outgoing messages? I don't want to have to put my reading glasses on everytime I get a text.
Is there a setting in LP or any apps that would allow me to toggle off and on the soft keys when a new notification comes in? Anytime I get an email or text the soft keys stay lit until I check the message.
I'm new to Android and I'm deciding on which phone to get. I believe I want the Fascinate but this issue with Google Maps navigation is an issue since turn-by-turn navigation is a big feature for me. Does Bing Maps also offer turn-by-turn navigation as well? Is it voice assisted? Personally I don't care if it's Bing or Google but I don't want the Verizon one since it will require a monthly fee. As long as Bing Maps offers the same functionality as Google Maps, I'm fine.
I would like to know where i can change the setting to disable vibration when a key is pressed (home, back etc or any key on QUERTY keyboard). I tried to look through the manual, But couldn't find. Let me know.
Just wondering if anyone else has this with their phone: When I have haptic feedback activated and i am texting(not using swipe) with each vibration I can hear a very very feint tinny ring (This is the best way i can describe it) And the major emphasis being on FEINT. Ive never owned a samsung before and so im wondering if thats just something that comes along with the vibration.
i love this new HTC Desire phone, but only thing i dont like about it, is the text messages appear on the bottom of the home screen. i dont want a preview of the messages i receive by text before i unlock the phone. how do i turn this off?
Does anyone know how to turn off the text message notification sound whilst on call? Ive never noticed this before my phone updated to the new 2.2 software and my old nokia used to give a little beep but the desire is a full blown message tone in your ear! Makes me jump everytime. Ive started putting my phone on vibrate to avoid this dreaded noise.
All I want to do is create a simple "vibrate" profile that turns phone calls and text messages to vibrate. I have the call part but the messages just come in silently with no vibrate. I have the following in the task:
1) Vibrate on Notify: On 2) Vibrate on Ringer: On 3) Silent Mode: Vibrate
I have swipe. How do I turn off the keyboard? The reason I ask is that I lile the regular android keyboard better. The onw that when you hold it landscape way there the spacebar in the middle and not off to the side. I purchased "better keyboard" didn't like it so I uninstalled it.
I own the Samsung Facinate and when the phone loses and regains signal it begins beeping. Currently working out of town where there is very little signal and it is driving me and my coworker crazy. How can I turn this off?
I have already gone into the settings tab and turned off Haptic feedback. I still get it regardless though when I get SMS. Is there a setting that I may have enabled on accident when I used the Keypad to adjust Nav volume?
I installed the JClean Rom after rooting... is there something inherit in that Rom that does the Haptic SMS?
So my wife has a Samsung Fascinate no-rooted and running the official Gingerbread update for a while now. The issue started a few weeks ago. At night she turns the phone off, plugs it into the wall charger to charge overnight, and then the phone turns itself back on. The phone will not stay off while she is trying to charge it. She has had the phone for over a year and this just started happening recently.
Okay. So i thought i could survive without the LED notification. But....i cant. Its killing me not being able to glance at my phone and know if i have missed something. Does anyone have any suggestions whatsoever on a good notification app or something?
I just started noticing this yesterday, and it's bugging the crap out of me now.
Essentially, this is what's happening.
I'll get a text, and in the notification bar where it shows the preview of a text, it'll say "Sarah Klein hey what's up?"
So then I'll pull down the notification area and in that it will again say "Sarah Klein hey what's up?"
Then I'll open the text.. and it's actually from another person! So the notification bar will say one name, but when I open the text, it goes into the actual person's sms thread. This has happened 4 times in the past day now that I've noticed. Has anyone else had this happen?
