After a couple attempts, I just decided the N1 speakerphone was garbage. I could hear the other person fine, but they said it was very difficult to understand me. I made a recording on my voicemail, using speakerphone, and it is indeed very difficult to understand. It's a garbled/underwater type of thing.
For a couple weeks, I assumed it was just that the phone was designed poorly. But my friend got an N1, so we did some comparisons. His speakerphone sounds fine (not a Nokia, but way better than my N1).
So I'm returning it to HTC for a swap.
This is just a heads-up to people who maybe don't use the speakerphone (those who do, already know if they have a bad one or not). If you think you might someday sell the phone, you probably want all of its features working correctly, and may want to consider RMA.
so i put in my headphones to listen to some music and when i pulled them out all sounds on the phone have been deleted. the only sound it makes is when someone calls me but i cant hear the person on the other side.
I have some problems when I'm using skype on my Samsung SGH-I827 (Samsung Appeal) from AT&T. Basically my problem is when I make a call to anyone of my contacts, what happens is that the other person can't hear me, I made a call to Skype Test Call service and I can't hear my own voice when I record the message that is requested in order to test the recording part.
This problem is in both ways, when I make a call and when I receive a call. I'm using only wi-fi because I don't have a data package that allows me to make calls over 3G. In addition I have a skype subscription and an online skype number that allows anyone with an landline or mobile phone reach me on skype.
So I just found out that when I'm on speakerphone, people can't hear me. I then actually called myself with another phone and realized that I can't hear myself at all when I set the phone to speaker mode! When I turn off speakerphone and talk into the mic the voice is loud and clear, but the moment I turn it on boom the other end hears nothing.
when im on a phone call it sounds very low i can barely hear the other person at max volume, someone explained how to make the EVO sound louder before on here, can someone please tell me how to make the EVO sound louder
I bought the HTC Hero recently, and I got this problem ever since. When I speak with someone on the phone, his or her voice is barely hearable. Literally, I have to ask the person on the other side to repeat her or himself 2-3 times before I'm actually able to hear her/him. So, long story short: the volume is abnormally low. What I've tried: volume control apps. They're all set at maximum volume. Hard-reset.
I have experienced making a call where I can hear the other person on the line but they can't hear me. Also, why does ending a call take forever. Also the the voice dialer can't even recognize what I am saying it always gives me the wrong information in need. Is there a calibration for the voice dialer to train my voice?
Does anyone know if there is a way to keep the screen from going to sleep mode while in alarm clock mode? Last night was my first night with it and I put it in alarm clock mode, but the screen would time out with in a minute and wont stay illuminated. Am I missing something here?
Has anyone found a good wifi tethering app that supports infrastructure mode? I tried android pre-14 on google and barnacle but both were just adhoc mode. I know google pre-14 will work once we get to 2.2 os, or it least it does on the EVO, but not sure when that is happening for the Fascinate.
I basically have no idea what I'm doing so I take no responsibility for how you use the information below, nor any responsibility for any issues it might cause. After following the rooting process and installing Titanium Backup and the 1-Click Lag Fix. I decided to explore and I was actually able to remove some of the bloatware apps without being in recovery mode. After obtaining root ADB Shell (the shell with a # sign instead of a $) I basically did the following commands:
I rooted my phone a couple weeks back. I backed up my apps with titanium pro and downloaded ROM manager. I clicked "reboot into recovery mode" from ROM manager and the phone went into recovery.
I am now stuck. I have four options: 1. reboot system now 2. apply update from SD card 3. wipe data/factory reset 4. wipe cache partition
I tried option one and clicked the button on the right side of the phone (the "enter" button), but nothing happens. In fact, none of the options do anything. seems like the phone isn't recognizing the enter button.
I have not flashed clockwork mod recovery. I think it probably requires some type of reboot but i don't know the steps.
I'm planning a solo camping trip for a week. Is there a way to make my htc incredible go into a mode where it only receives texts or phone calls from one person?
So: no email, news, weather, other texts, other voicemails, app updates...
I'm thinking it should be called Retreat Mode or Weekend Mode
I still want to have to phone on so my wife can reach me if she wants to but so I don't feel like I need to leave it behind or turn it off to avoid the other distractions. And I don't want a 2nd cell phone just for that purpose. maybe it's a long tasker script?
Until yesterday if I had an app like Pandora or ESPN Radio playing/running when the screen kicked off the app would keep playing. However, now when the phone goes to sleep everything else gets shut off. I have not altered anything myself per se. Even uninstalled a few apps like AutoKiller [which I had installed for weeks and everything worked fine with it on and installed] but the problem persists and remains. This really perplexes me as I want/need these apps to play with the screen off like they did before. For the life of me I don't know why this is; nor can I find anything in settings to change.
I just came over from a D1. I am trying to install OCLF on my SF but I am a little stuck and cannot find the answer... When I go to reboot my phone into recovery mode... what buttons do I push? On my D1 it was easy cause it had buttons ..
I love my Droid the only problem I have so far is I wish I had a "phone only" mode like on Blackberry. There are times where I like having all the sounds muted, but still want to have the phone ringtone on so that way I can hear the phone. I haven't found a way to do this yet, does anyone know how to?
1. You can access Panorama mode from the Scene menu in the top left. With Panorama mode... you will be guided by a green box, when you get close to take the next snapshot, move very slowly... especially when the green box is almost centered on your screen. This will produce better pictures with less blur.
2. Turn on Anti-shake and Auto-contrast in the settings menu. Turn on Grid if you'd like extra help with taking better photos.
3. Long press the shutter button to auto focus before taking the photo. It's a two-stage button that will take a little bit to auto focus, but it's better than not doing it before taking a photo.
Just got my Incredible and love it. I charged it up last night for the second time. Turned it on this morning and all looked good. Received a call this morning and I could hear the caller but they could not hear me. Several more incoming calls and the same issue. Then I made some calls...I could hear the person but they could not hear me. Finally turned phone off and back on and it is now fine. Mute was not on.....anyone know what this could be?
