Samsung Fascinate :: Add To Shortcut Menu For Custom Icon Replacement?
Nov 6, 2010
I am trying to customize my dock so I removed all the stock dock icons by choosing the "blank" shortcut. Now when I add a custom icon it won't perform the function because I designated it blank. How do I add the actual function along with the custom icon?
Just picked up a Fascinate for my wife and as we all know it's infested with Bing (until the 2.2 update). I have installed google search etc and its mostly running like her Eris was BUT the car home app that pops up when you place the phone in the car mount is the Samsung Bing app. The icons point to VZ navigator etc and she is like WTF I can't get the nav to work. Anyone know the easiest way (here come the "root the phone man....." comments) to disable the car home or replace it will the stock google one?
I have had the fascinate since September and love it. One day the speaker phone went out and I called the rep and they did not have a fix, so they sent me a replacement phone. The sound quality on my old phone was fine. A bit tinny at times but OK. But the replacement blows it away. I didn't even send it back for that, it was just an added bonus. So for those of you with sound issues. May want to get a replacement and see if its better?
I'm now using the 1.6 OEM thanks to the users in this community! But only for another few weeks before I ditch this phone. I'm planning on sticking with TWiz, and since I've never actually used it, I'm curious if anyone can help with some tips. 1. The icon shortcut layout is annoying. I don't like how they won't snap to a grid, and can overlap and be all over the place. Is there a way to change this? 2. That silly Quick List? Is that just another useless app window with recently used apps, or can it be edited to list apps I want in there? I'm not looking for home replacement apps because I've tried them all, and I'm just looking to get by for the next few weeks.
I've found some other threads discussing the fact that the default shortcut for Facebook is actually just a shortcut to a browser bookmark for Facebook. If you delete this shortcut, you can re-create it, but it has a boring red flag icon. With a custom bookmark app, you could restore this original icon... but only if you know where to find it. Where is that icon stored? It has to be somewhere on the root of the phone. Using root explorer, I can't find it. I'm guessing it's stored inside of an archive somewhere. Any ways to search more thoroughly?
Related: can I somehow use my PC (Windows explorer) to browse the root of the phone?
Or, can I find it somewhere in the original .tar file containing the flash update for the phone?
I finally got the answer to what the D icon is by verizon techs which stand for Digital signal in regards to calling not data. This should be on in most cases right? meaning that if your not seeing this D then your using an analog signal which could contribute to the poor call quality for some.When I first got the Fascinate this D showed up every ones in a while but then did the *228 option 2 then I got this constant D which lead me to this quest to find out what it was. Now the question is does every one get this icon in a consistent bases?
Dunno if this has been covered and maybe this is a stupid question. I have not had the phone long enough to have much call waiting experiences but the times I did, I noticed I had to press menu and then go thru a menu to "click over" to the other call. This is g=fine and dandy from the comfort of your couch but is not advisable if you are driving a car. Is there a one button shortcut to go to the other call without having to look at a menu?
how do I go about using all the icon packs for the phone or skins for widgets I'm finding?I installed LauncherPro today and am ready to customize but I'm unsure how.After searching I cant tell if i can just unzip the files on my computer and transfer them somewhere on the phone (not sure where) or if I need a third app like Folder Organizer?
I cannot answer about 75% of calls from my wife. The Answer Icon does not appear when it rings and I do not have any way of answering it then except for the incoming call to end, then I go to call log and call her (them) back.
I think we all have this, at least the one guy awake at this hour on IRC did confirm.If you have jt's clean rom see if you can unlock the lock screen by merely pushing the menu soft key?I'd prefer not to have this ability quite frankly
When you click applications button, you will see all the applications icons. I like this icons better than home screen icons because it looks bigger and feel more comfortable when I look at it. Well, yes it looks like iphone screen.
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.
I just purchased a fascinate today and it's pretty solid, however I noticed that when I try to set a custom picture for the background, it won't let me select the whole picture and it zooms in ridiculously too much. Now, I've tried almost everything, but nothing seems to work. Can anyone help me?Oh, if you have the fascinate, download handscent for messaging. I had a blackberry before the fascinate and it's similar to the crunch sms for blackberry. It's convenient because it allows you to customize the length of the vibrations and led lights, but the fascinate doesn't seem to have led light capability. It also allows you to customize the bubbles a well as the colors per contact and all that. Definitely something to look into.

I've downloaded some custom ringtones and notification tones onto my SF. However, they all end up in the music player. I don't want to hear my ringtones and notification tones while I'm going through all my music... Does anyone know how to get keep these custom ringtones and notification tones out of my Music Player?
I currently have Hand cent installed, and would like to use it as my shortcut instead of the android default of Messaging. That said, I'd like to continue to use the Messaging icon, AND the wording Messaging for the icon. Can these be changed? Rename the shortcut, and change the icon of the shortcut?
Can I rename icons on the Droid X? For instance, I have an application shortcut named 'Email' on a screen that is actually my 'Work Email' and I would like to rename it to that. Is there a way to do this?
