Samsung Moment :: How To Make Moment A Wireless Tether For Internee?
Dec 8, 2009
So i had a hard decision to make when buying a new phone. It was between the HTC Hero and the Samsung Moment. After about 2 weeks I finally made the jump. A lot of the apps are on the I phone and I touch which is pretty cool. But can anyone tell me if it is possible to maybe change the phone kinda like jail breaking? Is there anyway of making the Moment a wireless tether for internee?
I have the latest froyo rom 1.87 installed and i can not get this app to work. Didn't work with the previous version either. I don't understand what is going on or what m doing wrong. Have tried to have my PC, blackberry,ps3 and psp try to find the hotspot but none of them could, not with manual entry of the SSID either. Is there anything m supposed to be changing in other settings of the phone?
I keep hearing that Sprint is going to start prohibiting tetheing. First off, how do they know that we are tethering? And I guess the answer to that question will answer this one.....but then how will they prevent us from tethering???
Ive seen other Android phones with this capability, including the G1 that also has 1.5. Does anyone no if its available for the moment? Ive tried an .apk for a similar phone with 1.5 but it said i didnt have the appropriate kernal? Oh and yes i am updated with the latest rom from SDX
I got it to work on my htc hero without a problem but I'm trying to get it on my girls samsung moment and its giving me hell.Does any one have some simple steps for installation? I know it has something to do with samsung PC studio but she is currently out of town and I'm trying to help her over the phone. Any help will be appreciated as well as suggestions on another app that works better than Easy tether.Is the paid version worth it?
I have 4 phones for my company. 2 HTC Heroes and 2 Samsung Moments.I setup both phones on my 2 pc's and laptops.Both phones worked great.Now only the Heroes are working with Easy Tether.I have loaded and reloaded the Samsung drivers. This problem occurred in the last few days.Sometimes the Samsung are recognized as "Legacy USB's".The Moments are supposed to be backup phones.I have not upgraded to the Full Easy Tether until I can get the problems 100% resolved.
Is there a way to use your samsung moment to give you internet for your ps3 to use the Play station network? I can't connect my phone to anything except the charger. the computer is up stairs,and the ps3 has to stay down stairs.
I just recently updated from cupcake 1.5 on the samsung moment to a 2.1 android updated, rooted and have the wireless tether working perfectly fine. how many were rooted and are not having any problems.
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?
Is there anyway to make certain apps private, hidden or locked on the menu screen. I have lil brothers and nephews who I don't mind playing games or watching movies on my phone; but I don't want them getting into certain "adult" apps or my fake call and sms apps. I believe it's possible to do b/c there's an app called Call Log (Secret Monitor) that has in its description "No icon in the list of applications. Completely hidden at you eyes". I downloaded it just to check and it really doesn't appear in the menu. So does anyone know how to do it for any app that we choose?
On my second Moment and this one has been ok(with the exception of airplane mode) until now... I tried to send a text eariler and I got the message not sent error then I tried to make a phone call and it wouldent go through.. the call timer didn't even pop up. The odd thing is my internet works fine... I. Went back to factory settings via menu privacy reset and still no phone.
What do I have to do to make ADW my default. After everything I do, I get a pop up saying Complete action using ADW or Home. I checked the option to "use by default for this action", and then choose ADW, but the same pop up comes back. Is there anything for me to do once and for all to make ADW my default?
In the thread where some users where posting their screenshots, I saw what appeared to be contacts as a shortcut on one the main screens. I was just curious how or what program is used to do this. Any help? Here is an example.
I need a way that I have to acknowledge that I have gotten a notification. Sometimes the noise level is too high and i will not know that I have gotten a message, email or missed a call. I there a way or app to make me acknowledge that there is a notification that has occurred?
Does anyone know how to make ALL calls go direct to voicemail? When i try to upload a large file to YouTube, FB, etc - an incoming call/SMS kicks me off; and, I have to start all over. I have found how to do this on the HTC, through Settings:Wireless:Mobile Networks.... but similarities stop there.
OK so i got this application because it says it can make phone faster or make it save battery, i dont know what settings to have it at or what presets for sleep/wake, etc. if someone can help me as to what settings it would help alot. currently its running at 800max and 66 min.
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?
Gizmodo has a Black Friday list and just added the Moment at a big discount. About the 12th deal listed under Cell phones. It's supposedly offered from Wirefly. Come on and join us the more the merrier. I got mine from BB @ $99.

I currently have a voice plan, with sprint, for my dying LG Musik and my father's Palm Centro and am seeking to replace my Musik with a Samsung Moment. I have an upgrade available on my account, however I don't want to get locked into a data plan, since I rarely spend any time away from Wifi.
Does anyone know if there is a way for me to use my upgrade to aquire the Moment without commiting to the data plan?
