Samsung Moment : App To Automatically Input Number Into Dialer?
Jan 21, 2010
Ive been searching for this for a few days and Ive got nothing so hopefully someone knows. Is there any way to call a number that's been sent via sms? Ex: My wife sent me a text containing the phone number of a client. On previous phones, that number would be a hyperlink and when I clicked it the dialer would open with that number pre-inserted. It seems on the moment I have to memorize the number, go to the dialer and input it in. This isn't so easy when your driving or doing much of anything.
Is there any app or setting that allows me to automatically input the number into the dialer? I tried copy and paste but you cant paste into the dialer.
Most every other "issue" to this phone has been a non-issue for me to this point.However, the one feature Samsung really screwed us on is the voice capabilities of the phone.I think they are tied to the Nuance system and therefore unusable by other apps like google voice search and where.I hope samsung or sprint writes a live search app for this phone.I bought the phone with the expectations of this phone being capable of voice commands without being limited by nuance.
this keyboard is light years ahead of the default virtual qwerty.I bought the Moment for the hard qwerty and absolutely love it, but hated to have to open the phone for each and every little thing due to the god-awful virtual keyboard.Installing HTC's Touch Input was the best decision I've made. It's super responsive and typing is almost as easy as with the iPhone. I use the T9 numeric as opposed to the full qwerty. There's also a compact qwerty if that's your thing (Blackberry-esque)It's not on the Market AFAIK, but a quick google search will show you where it is. Even has a calibration tool!
This is weird, and I haven't installed anything new since this has started happening.
I listen to podcasts a lot on my Moment thru the cassette tape headphone jack in my car. I use Meridian for my podcast player. Starting about mid day, when I plug the headphone jack into my moment with a podcast loaded into Meridian, the $%#in Nuance Voice control activates and asks me for a command. Then, seemingly unprompted, it will open up my music player and start playing a song at the same time as the podcast. Then, after I've killed the music player, when I unplug the jack, it does the same thing. I've tried rebooting, and it's still doing the same thing..
I would like to forward all calls to my number on to the new predefined number automatically. Is it possible to forward incoming call? Probably it is possible for Froyo at least. I found application called Easy Call Forwarding. But many people reckon it dosen't work actually. We can notice forwarded call by onCallForwardingIndicatorChanged() from PhoneStateListener but I have no idea how to set forwarding mode.
Is there a way to set the screen NOT to lock automatically? I'm thinking of something similar to the Samsung Rogue. The screen can time out, go dark, but unless you lock the phone, the touch screen stays active - or can be triggered to start up by any hard key?
I just switched to the Moment and I'm really digging it so far, except for the battery. I was wondering if anyone knows of an app out there or some settings that can prevent apps from loading automatically. Often, I find that apps like Sprint Nav, Sprint TV, Moxier Mail, etc. loaded automatically. I'm getting tired of killing apps all day long to save memory and battery. It seems like my Moment doesn't want to run with more than 30mb free cause it just keeps loading apps until it gets to around 26-30mb.
I am having problems getting the moment to automatically connect to my car's bluetooth .. I can pair it properly and it works but the next time I get in the car it never automatically finds the unit. Turning of/on bluetooth on the phone has no effect. What does work is going into the bluetooth configuration in settings and turning the phone to 'discoverable'. The car then picks it up and it works fine until the next trip.
The phone should not have to be 'discoverable' in my experience. I have had several other phones and the bluetooth has always worked fine in the car so I know it's not the car's system..
Wondering if anyone knows of an application that can automatically dial a number at a set date and time. I have a meeting to attend, and I need to call my house at a certain time to make sure my kid gets up for school. They ignore the alarm clock, but always wake up when the phone rings. I can't use my phone during the meeting.
I don't know what has caused this but each time I reboot my wireless is on and the screen timeout is set to 30 sec(my setting is 10min) even after adjusting it reverts back to these settings on reboot. Does anyone have any idea what is causing this?
This is driving me nuts. When I get in my car and bluetooth connects to the phone, the phone automatically starts playing music through BT audio. I cant find any way to disable it short of turning off BT and I dont want to do that as I play Slacker through BT. Is there an option Ive missed to disable autoplaying of music?
Am I missing a setting here or something, the last few phones I have had, Palm and WinMo, would allow you to dial a phone number from within a text or calendar event by taping on it, any string of 7 numbers or more if you clicked on it it would ask if you wanted to dial, this is really helpful of someone texts you a phone # and you want to call it
I have a serious problem when making calls without a headset, with the phone in my hand. People I call are telling me that they hear a phone number being dialed loudly while I speak to them, as if I am making a call while speaking to them. Today it happened and the person said she had to shout to be heard over this loud noise-which I cant hear!! I must be touching some button or application with my hand or face, but what?
Was out today and called up some numbers for restaurants in the browser. I tried to copy the number from the browser so I could paste it into the dialer. I managed to get the number to the clip-board, but then I couldn't paste it into the dialer! I'm using a DSTL1 which only has soft keyboard and I can't get combinations of shift and menu to make it work.
Lots of my contacts - especially my "favorite" contacts - have multiple phone #'s, which is pretty typical. So it's a nice feature in the dialer that lets you select a specific number - home, office, mobile, etc., to dial every time you pull up the favorites tab within the dialer screen. I by mistake checked "use as default number" for one particular contact, but now I want to deactivate that selection and have no default number for that particular contact.
I know how to switch the default number from one to another; is there a way to deactivate the default number and just have the phone ask me which number to dial, e.g. home, office, mobile, etc.? I've been trying to tinker with everything I can to no avail, and I've also been shut out trying to answer this question online. Only thing I haven't done is call Verizon.
I do not want my phone to vibrate when dialing a phone number on the stock dialer. I've been looking for the right menu item that controls this unwanted (on my part) feature of my otherwise perfect Evo. Anybody know where to find the setting that turns off the phone dialer vibrations?
How do I get a Edittext with both a phone input and the ability to hide the string. I know that android:inputType="textPassword" hides the string, while android:inputType="phone" brings up a dialpad interface.
If (in Android) you wanted to write an alarm app where the user entered in the time for the alarm by swiping the hours & minutes up and down, what's the easiest way of achieving this? Is it the Swipe or Fling command?
I am developing in android and I would like an input field for numbers, where the user can select the correct number using the plus sign at the top and the minus sign at the bottom of the input field. I know this works for date picker. Is there some property or something similar to make this available for any integer number input field?
I was thinking if i could have an app wherein i can set a particular date and time and at that set moment my phone automatically calls the number that i set. Also if possible the call should be disconnected as soon as the call is received at the other end.
I tried to search a little if such apps were existing i found an app called "Wakeup call alarm" which is not existing any more.one application of such an app is to call my landline number in the morning so that i get up from bed at least pretty lazy to wake up from bed in mornings.
I was wondering if it is possible to have Eclipse automatically increment the build version number inside of the Manifest each time that I either build or run an Android app. Has anyone ever done something like this?
