Samsung Galaxy S : Phone Keeps Going Back - To The Home Screen

Sep 8, 2010

Something weird happens to my phone. At times when I am browsing through my apps in the applications window, the phone suddenly goes back to the home screen after about 10-15 secs of inactivity. It vibrates a little bit as if the back button is being pressed. I am 100% sure I am not pressing the back button.

Other times, when I start up an app (gmail, facebook, internet, music player, etc) it goes back after about 10 secs of inactivity. It seems to always want to go back to the home screen and it will keep going back till it arrives at the home screen.

I just got my phone two days ago and haven't done anything much on the phone yet.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Transparent Screen? Not Reflected Back Off The Screen

Aug 3, 2010

At certain angles under strong lighting (basically when light is shining onto, but not reflected back off the screen) I can see a line that looks like it might be the edge of a circuit board behind my screen (when the display is off). Initially I thought it was a scratch, but on closer inspection, it's too thick a line, and much too precise and engineered looking to be one.

It's sorta this shape and runs across behind the screen, about 2/3 of the way up:

Has anyone else noticed this? Tis rather odd.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Returns To Home Screen During And After Call

Oct 17, 2010

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 :: Missed Calls Jigsaw Display On Home Screen

Aug 11, 2010

Noticed yesterday that on the homescreen when the phone was locked that a missed call and voicemail notification appeared as pieces removed from a jigsaw overlay of the background homescreen image. Hadn't seen that before. Is that a default thing or can I change it (did look rather cool though). I usually use the pattern lock rather than the default swipe lock, so I'm wondering if it's to do with that default setting.

HTC EVO 4G :: Keep On Adding All News Back On Home Screen

Jun 11, 2010

I have 4 subscriptions in the news app and the widget on the home screen. The problem is, read news keeps refreshing on the app after i've read and deleted it. If I read all the news, then delete them all so that it's empty, the widget will "load news" and everything will come back. Is this the way it's supposed to work? I thought only unread articles were supposed to sync but mine just keeps loading all the same crap again, as well as new stuff too.

Motorola Droid :: Phone Reset After Call / Not Going Back To Home Screen

Jul 8, 2010

I've had my Moto Droid since it basically came out last Nov and I have never ever run into a problem with the phone until last night. I had a phone call and after I got off the phone, I noticed my droid reseted itself and it wasn't going back to the home screen. Meaning it would just display the word "Droid" then go right into the droid red eye screen, then right back to the word Droid and just kept repeating itself.

I took the battery out and put it back in, but it kept doing the same thing. I am really not sure what would cause my phone to do this, but the only new change I can think of was that I installed the "TMZ" application to my droid about 3 hours prior to this happening. But the application worked fine and I really hope it wasn't because of that. Is there anything I can do before going to Verizon? I would really hate giving up my phone with all my stuff in it, but I know theres probably not much I can do if I cant even get to the home screen.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Slow - Takes A Minute To Go Back To The Home Screen LauncherPro Crashes A Lot

I have an HTC Hero, rooted, latest Cyanogen with LauncherPro Plus. But I don't know if it's a rooted issue so I posted here. Sometimes scrolling slows to a crawl, sometimes it takes a minute to go back to the home screen, LauncherPro crashes a lot, the lock screen takes a few seconds to unlock. Other times all of that zips through. It's maddening About 24 megs of free storage on phone. What could it be? And the phone reboots a lot on its own also.
