Samsung Galaxy S : Way To Mute Ringtone Alert When Receiving A Call?


I had a look to the user guide but it seems that when receiving a call, I can only accept it or reject it. I'd like to be able to mute the ringtone instead of rejecting the call. Any clue?

Samsung Galaxy S :: Mute Ring Tone Of Incoming Call
Is there a way to mute the ring tone of an incoming call while I am deciding what to do with the call? This morning some idiot rang me at 0150h. I was fumbling to mute the tone before it woke up the whole house. But I could not find any option. In meetings, it is a nuisance if the ringing blares away while I make my way out of the room to take the call.

Samsung Fascinate :: Cannot Mute While Call
While in a call I cannot mute the call whether on speaker phone or headset speaker. I have tried soft reset, hard reset and the dreaded factory reset. Nothing, still am not able to mute a call. This will be a deal breaker for me as I need this to work for my job. I have searched for this and pretty much have found nothing other than folks having muting problems when their face makes contact with the screen while in a call. I have no prob with that. As long as I am listing probs that I have found: Whenever I exit browsing the web my screen brightness goes to full bright and will not adjust itself anymore until I turn the phone off and then back on.

GPS takes from 10 sec to 10 min to connect, very sporadic, and the turn by turn Nav is pretty much useless due to the extreme low volume. Why is it that the speakerphone is extremely loud and most media volumes are nearly whisper quiet? 3G is on again off again 50 % of the time and it shows by my time without a signal, anywhere from 25% to 45% on a daily basis. I never had that problem with the Dinc. Never had more than 2% TWS with the Dinc. Not praising the Dinc here, just stating a fact.

dbm readings are way off. Standing right next to a tower I cannot get below a -86 dbm reading. Again not praising the Dinc but it would read -50 dbm in the exact same location. Just using the comparison for myself to determine if it is a prob with the SF. Get a ton of complaints when using the phone outside when there is even the slightest breeze. Folks have a hard time hearing me over the howling wind noise. Very aggravating. For those that are gonna bash, save it. If you have solutions to the above problems please let me know what they are as my 30 day trial is coming up and I am leaning towards a return. This is the 2nd SF that I have tried with the same results also. The screen on this, camera, video pic quality, and many other great features make this a real bitch, but I need first and foremost a phone that I can mute calls on and talk on outside even when its a breezy day.

Samsung Moment :: Accidental Speaker / Mute Press While On Call
I don't know how many others are having this problem, but I hit the mute and/or speaker button frequently while on a call. Is there any way to remove these buttons from the dial screen? The proximity sensor "works" but not in the sense that it works on the iphone. The screen takes several seconds to dim and then can pop on at any time during the call allowing these buttons to pressed with my cheek. Many many times, the speaker has been activated in an environment where it should not be. Are there any apps to prevent this, or do I have a bad proximity sensor? Does the fact that I hold the phone on the left side of my face effect this at all? (most people hold on the right) The last time I tried other advice of pressing home button, the phone has opened a self service apps and was about to start programming itself by the time I got off the phone.

Samsung Moment :: Mute Ringer Option In Call Or Text Message
On my old flip phone when i got a call or text message with ringer on i could just hit the volume rocker and it shuts it up when i don't wanna take the call or message. On the moment i don't have that option. I have to hit end button, then menu, and then slide the notification bar down to shut it up. This be kind of annoying, especially when I'm in a meeting and forget to silence my phone before hand. There's a lot of times when i can't answer my phone and would love to reach in my pocket and hit volume button once to shut it up. So i guess what I'm asking is if there is a setting for this that i'm missing, or a different button that does the same.

Samsung Galaxy S :: SMS - New Message - Alert?
I just got my Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant from Bell, and I am not verry technical. I have some (maybe 10) additional apps installed since i got the phone, including advanced task killer.

My issue is this: when I get a new message, it appears in the blinds (the thing at the top?) like it is supposed to, but after I check the message, it stays there, saying I have the new message. I can clear it and it goes away, but shouldnt it dissapear after I check the text?

I also crash frequently, but I am thinking newer firmware will fix that

Samsung Galaxy S :: Google Talk Not Receiving Messages / Solution To This?
I've seen such posts on the site earlier, however never found a solution to this problem.

I'm able to send messages from my Google Talk on Samsung Galaxy S running Android 2.1 update 1.

However, I'm not receiving any messages at all from anyone. This is making me feel horribly disabled.

Has anyone found any solution to this problem?

I tried several things like restarting the phone, clearing Google talk service and app cache, signing out and back in, etc. I don't want to reset the phone again and loose all my current setup. I've read some posts that reset also doesnt work.

Is there any solution to this problem?

Samsung Moment :: Call From XXXX Ringtone?
Ok. I did one of the updates to 2.1 on my moment back when it was first leaked, and did the change to CE10 or whatever it was, then I just did the other day a custom makeshift one from the pick and choose list from Joey. Both of these 2.1 updates land me in this issue.

I can not find a setting to change it, and I thought it might have been from the Dialer One application but it isn't.

Whenever I choose a ringtone whether from Android, Music, or Zedge, no matter what it is. My ringtone when I get a call is always an audible call from John Doe. Or if the number isn't in my phone book it would say call from ###-###-####.

I have tried multiple ringtones and I still run into this. It never happened on the original 1.5. Is there a setting I need to change?

Samsung Galaxy S :: Way To Set Custom (mp3) Ringtone To Specific Contact?
Got the new Galaxy (specifically the vibrant) and I love it. One thing I can't figure out though. How do you set a custom (mp3) ringtone to a specific contact? I've done a good bit of searching on this and it seems to work as long as the contact is stored on the phone however the option is NOT there when it's a contact sync'd from Google.

So I could easily do this with my other Captivate before I traded in for a new one (last one was defective, thats a different story) they are both rooted. The thing is I can't remember how I set my song as my ringtone. It is a full song and I easily set it as my ringtone. I didn't put it in a custom "ringtones" folder or anything.

Samsung Galaxy S : Deleted Mailbox / Start Receiving Officials Mail Again?
I bought a SAMSUNG Galaxy phone and had set up my official mail (yahoo business mail) under E-Mail settings. And I was receiving mails for a week. Now for the last 3 days, no mails are downlaoding and when I click Email, it only shows 'Load More Messages', but on clicking nothing happens. I am think of resetting it, but dont know how to do it. I tried holding the Email and drag it to the Trash, it moves to trash, but reappears. I tried to delete the Yahoo Biz Mail credentials I had given, so as to recreate, but after clearing each field, there is no way you can save it.

how to start receiving my officials mail again?

Android :: Detect If Microphone Is Mute During Call
I would like to detect if microphone in the device or in a headset is mute during a call. Currently I've taken the following approach (unfortunately - it does not work): 1) register PhoneStateListener to detect when a call is started/ finished 2) when call is started then I start a thread that periodically calls audioManager.isMicrophoneMute() method to discover a microphone status. (audioManager is obtained by calling getSystemService (AUDIO_SERVICE) ) 3) when call is finished I stop a thread started in bullet 2

Unfortunately audioManager.isMicrophoneMute() always returns 'true', does not matter if I select or deselect the 'Mute' option in the menu during a call. Does anybody know if it is possible to detect the state of a microphone during a call?

Samsung Galaxy S : Ringtone Volume Go On Level 6 To Loud To Room-filling Boombox
why does the ringtone volume go from too quiet on level 6 to loud to room-filling boombox level on level 7?

there should be one step in between 6 is way to low and 7 is way to high.

using JM2 maybe it's fixed on a later firmware?

is there any other way to add a more sensitive adjustment?

Samsung Moment :: Moment Intermittently Won't Respond / Wake Up When Receiving A Call
I've already done the update but both pre and post update, my Moment intermittently won't respond when getting a call. The call comes in, I hear the ringtone but no matter what buttons I press, the phone won't respond. I have to wait until voicemail kicks in or the call has ended.

I called Sprint technical support and they're going to send a new (I hope it's new) phone. I hate to set up the phone for the third time. Is there a fix or should I just bite the bullet and get the new? phone? Has anyone had this problem?

What experiences have you had with replacement phones from Sprint?

Should I be worried about getting a lemon phone?

Samsung Galaxy S :: Notification When My Call Is Waiting
I have had my Samsung Galaxy S for just over a week now and have almost got to grips with it!

One thing that is annoying me and that I can't seem to change is the call waiting option. I have set up my own call options and they work fine - what I am having problems with is when I call someone who is already on a call - my phone does not tell me that I am waiting. I have always had this with my other phones without having to set up or do anything - how do I manage this on teh Samsung Galaxy S? I am with Vodafine and have Android 2.2 Froyo.

Samsung Moment :: Ringtone Have Created Don't Show Up In All Ringtone Areas Of Phone
I purchased my moment about 2 weeks ago and have been having fun figuring it out however there are some areas where I am having problems.

1. When you want to attach a document it selects the picture folder/area, how do you browse instead of being forced into that area.

2. I downloaded ringtone app and have found the app quite useful, the problem I am having is, the ringtones I have created don't show up in all the ringtone areas of my phone, what needs to be done to correct this.

3. The basic user guide that comes with the phone says there is an app I can download called samsung new pc studio. When I call sprint or samsung they say this app is not available or can't be used by a casd(the u.s. standard, I think casd is right), they say this software is only for the other standard, I did find this app on the web. Is what sprint and samsung saying true if not can I use the ones I found on the web.

4. If you could choose only ten apps to have(free)which ones would you choose?

Samsung Galaxy S :: Returns To Home Screen During And After Call
During a call, I will hold the phone away from my face to see how many minutes I've been talking. Normally, it will correctly show me the call screen, however, sometimes it will flash the home screen briefly before going back to the call screen. There seems to be no rhyme or reason about when this happens. Even worse, sometimes it flashes the home screen briefly and will go to a blank screen. I will then need to press the home key in order for it to return to the call screen. This happens sometimes, as well, when I finish the call. Previously, I had the Not Call Log application installed but I've removed it. Also, I previously had my screen timeout set to one minute but changed that to thirty minutes. But, this behavior still happens

Samsung Galaxy S :: Software Which Allow Me To Have A Video Call From Phone To PC?
Maybe someone can help me. I am living in Europe and travelling quite often. So far when I was going abroed I have talked to my girlfriend using my notebook (wifi connection and using skype video call). Using the video call I was able to see her, talk to her and the other way around. Now as I bought my first smartphone (Samsung Galaxy S) I would like to do the same thing without taking my notebook to my travels.

Is there any software which will allow me to have a video call from the phone to PC? I am asking about software which work on Android 2.1 and support front face camera on the phone, so I am able to see her (and she can see mee) while talking to her!

I do not have Froyo as in my country there isn't original update yet. And I would rather wait for the official update.

Phone: Samsung Galaxy S
Firmware: Eclaire (2.1)

Samsung Galaxy I7500 : Audio While In A Call - Galaxo
Admittedly I don't use my phone as a phone a whole lot. I didn't notice this before, but today while actually using this thing as a phone, the sound of the person at the other end would completely cut off if I said anything. It was exactly like using a speakerphone or a walkie talkie. Is this a bug with Galaxo or has my Galaxy always done this and I have failed to notice ?

Samsung EPIC 4G :: Samsung Desk Home - Ringer Volume Mute
Got my daughter the Samsung Epic this morning and grabbed a case and the home dock for it. Hate the fact that you have to remove the back of the case to plug it into the home dock and the fact that it sets the ringer volume to mute every time I plug it in, not to mention the fact that the external speaker option for the dock won't go active until the phone is updated to Android 2.2. Now that my mini rant is over, I do actually have a question, anyone know what you need to do to get the weather stuff to come up on the Desk Home screen when that software is active, I am having no luck at all. There is no option for it anywhere and the auto magic stuff must be broken. It clearly shows weather info available on all the pics and stuff Samsung has shown off and I would kind of like it to be there.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Display Contact Type During Call Instead Of Number
I'm using Android 2.1 on the Galaxy S.I have multiple numbers defined per contact, e.g. mobile, work, home. Whenever I make or receive a call, the name is shown, and the phone number is shown underneath the name instead of the type that the number is associated with.Any way to show the type (mobile, work, home) instead of the number itself? Otherwise are we supposed to memorize which numbers belong to work, mobile, or home?I don't even see any icons, or colour changes that would signify one of the types.

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that they removed the text alert while on the phone w the recent 3.29.651.5 update? They added it to the update before this, but then removed it again on the the up to date software. I can't find anywhere on this forum where anyone else cares about this removal. Just thought I'd see if I'm the only one who misses this feature lol. And yes, I'm aware of Handcent and Chomp but I really prefer stock.
