Motorola Droid :: Lookout Mobile Security No Backup

Aug 16, 2010

I have used Lookout since it was introduced but lately I have been unable to connect to do a backup. Either via my phone or their website, neither method works. I sent feedback to them via their website but their silence is deafening. It keeps saying "connection error" and will NOT complete a backup.Is anyone else having backup issues? Or is it just me?

Motorola Droid :: DVD Video Solutions

Jun 15, 2010

After a bit of frustration, I finally found a couple different methods to encode a DVD for successful viewing on the Droid. My first successful attempt involved using CloneDVDmobile using Playstation 3 AVC/H264 settings for screen size 720x480. I was able to view the video (full screen/aspect) using Act 1, Meridian and Video Player. A preferred method uses DVD Catalyst for conversion with resultant screen size of 848x480, and video quality at 900kbps. Viewed successfully on all 3 previously mentioned video players. I recommend both CloneDVDmobile and DVD Catalyst. However, DVD Catalyst gives the user significant control regarding the quality of the finished product.

HTC Desire :: Charging Solutions And Battery Improvement

May 12, 2010

I've got a number of particular questions, and having read all the threads I can find, there's still a couple of things i am not 100% on. 1. Would any micro USB 1A charger be safe to use with the phone? It's just I'd like to have a spare charger to take with me when at work/away on business, and having found that just USB from the PC is far to slow, I wanted to make sure it was ok? 2. Is regularly (daily) overnight charging ok? It's just that i have read it's not great to leave it on charge once it's full. That seems problematic to me if a overnight charge = 7 hours charging, but the phone only needs 3 hours to charge at least 90%. 3. I seem to get about 20-22 minutes of heavy usage (Wi-Fi on, browsing / using apps) to 10% of the battery at the moment. The phone is only 1 week old though, am I likely to see an improvement, and if so what sort of one?

HTC Droid Eris :: Phone App Gripes / Are There Solutions?

Feb 10, 2010

I've had my Droid Eris for a week now and have reserved any comments/complaints about it until now. While i have other issues with other parts of the phone (Battery Life, Mail App, etc), the Phone App is one i need to sort out first... Please let me know how you "get around" these isues or if there are actual settings to help me. The thing i find most annoying about the phone app is the following:

1. When hitting the call button or "Phone" touch button on the home screen you get the dial pad overlay on top of the call history..fine. But if you try to drag the dialer out of the way to see the rest of the history, and accidentally touch and not drag it, you get the "Smart Dialer Tip screen", to which you have to hit "Back Arrow" soft key to get rid of.. UGH! What ever happened to "Do not show me this tip Again" option? please make it stop.

2. When looking through my call history i can't see the times in which the tims were placed. WHAT!? I have to hit "Menu" and then hit "Call History" to get a separate Call History screen that has this information. Come on, that's not OK. The Call History screen from the Menu option is GREAT! That's EXACTLY what i want and exactly what's on every other cell phone i've used...Only better, cuz you can hit the icon next to the person to see a history of just that caller (again, same on BBerry). From THERE, you can see messages you've received from them, or view their contact card. Why can't THIS screen be the one that is under the dial pad.. SOOO much more useful.

3. Particularly annoying for me, when using Smart Dial and typing out a company name it does not show up. Often times i only remember the company name to the person i'm calling and not the particular representative for which i'm calling... for Example if i have a contact called "Name: Hugh Hefner - Company: Playboy". I want to call that guy at Playboy but can't remember his name, so i type in the company name..."Playboy", it does not show up. If i type in "Hugh Hefner", voila, but i didnt remember that so i had to go to People to start typing the company name to get this information... Not efficient. Again to compare to BB (only because this is the ideal setup) When typing in ANYTHING, it will attempt to find the text you're entering in any of the Contact NAME or COMPANY Name... THIS is how it should be. PLEASE FIX!

4. On the same token, whwen i've then placed a call to a company that does not have a persons name in the name field, the call history just shows a number. Not to mention, when the call is incoming, i do not see their company name on the incoming call screen. The only way i know that someone called that i KNOW is because the listing in the call history has a contact card and not "+" Sign. Bad.

So, when i start to type "Pizza Hut" i get nothin, have to go to People and click search and enter again, then i call, no answer. They call back but i dont know who it is cuz it doesnt come up. I go to look at my call history afterwards and the number is there, but i dont know who it is, until i hit the contact card...then i can click a few more buttons to call thenAnd i just wanted a damn pepperoni pie!

and 5. I would LOVE the option to switch the dialer from 123 to ABC so that it will begin to spell out the name you're entering (like BBerry). Right now, when using Smart Dial, and you're typing Pizza Hut. You get "7499...". Now, what if i misdialed the number/letter and i'm on the wrong path? How am i to know which letter i dialed incorrectly? All i see is a bunch of numbers. All I can do is hit the backspace key to the point at which my narrowed down Smart Dial list is beginning to return results. If I dialed PITZ (7489).. instead of the intended PIZZ..(7499), then i'm screwed and end up starting all over. (More accurately i panic and end up hitting the end key or clear and have to get back into the phone app again)....

Basically, we just need more options.Is there help on the way with Android 2.0/2.1?Is there settings that can help me for now?Is there a 3rd party Phone App that is better

Android :: App Security

May 12, 2010

So I had a question about the security of apps on the market. I read the sticky about it which was very helpful but have a question about a particular app. In my hunt for a good alarm clock app I found "alarm clock plus" which I downloaded and think its a great app but I'm kind of worried about some of the permissions it uses.

They are:

Your Location, coarse (network based) location Network communication, full internet access Phone calls, read phone state and identity System tools, modify global system settings, prevent phone from sleeping

Is there anything here that seems sketchy? I thought it might need location for some sort of weather functionality, but it doesnt have anything like that. And I dont know why it would need full internet access either.

Maybe I am being to paranoid about the whole app security thing, what do you guys think?

Android :: App Based Security

Dec 16, 2008

I want app-based security.If I lose my phone, I don't care if someone sees my contacts, or views my pictures, or plays my games. I do care, however, if they use my email.So, why not be able to assign on an app-by-app basis what is security protected?I should have to log in (a la Android screen lock) whenever I open my email.... but I don't have to just because the screen is asleep.

Android :: GSM Security - EDGE Or 3G

Aug 1, 2010

I stumbled upon this article yesterday:
Hacker Spoofs Cell Phone Tower to Intercept Calls | Threat Level |

I realize that there is a relatively small number of people who would actually try to do such a thing to intercept calls (and potentially data at some point with some tweaks), but assuming that this can easily be done and such, how big of a deal is this really? I'm not too well-versed when it comes to cell phone communications technology, so I'm just curious if anyone here can offer any opinions as far as just how vulnerable this leaves those of us on networks that use GSM like AT&T and T-Mobile. The article mentions that the hacker was only really able to make it work on 2G. Does that mean we're okay as long as our phones show we're on EDGE or 3G?

Android :: Install To SD Security

Sep 23, 2010

I was wondering if using the option in the Android manifest to install to SD would make a game any easier to pirate. I really don't know how hard it is to pirate an app on Android Market as it is actually. I am assuming someone with some knowledge can do it but can the average consumer? Would moving to SD make it so even the average consumer can steal it?

Android :: Is There A Security Camera App

Aug 22, 2010

I was curious about whether or not there is a security app that would let me record video while i am gone with my droid, that would have the capability of motion detection or just "always recording." It would be really nice if i could hook it to my computer via my usb cord and record it continuously on my 1 tb hard drive or something in that realm. someone has been snooping around and things are always misplaced or stolen, and I'm worried as to whether or not they have a camera set up in here bugging the room (bunch of freaks.) if i could just catch them it would be great. the room's dead bolt is broken. and I'm not here 70% of the time. If they do have a camera already in the room, i can set it up in a way that they wont notice the camera I've placed. Please help!

Android :: Need To Update Our Security Settings?

Sep 17, 2010

Since the recent Froyo update myself and some co-workers are having trouble with Outlook. It always worked fine before but now it keeps saying we need to update our security settings. When you click it though it just disappears and then comes back later. It receives e-mails fine, but Outlook doesn't want to send e-mails anymore for some reason.

Android :: Phone Security Profiles

Nov 26, 2010

Hey guys, I previously posted this (i have now added something extra to this one) on another thread, it took me about 20 minutes to write, surpassing by far any the maximum time I ever spent on one single forum post in the past lmao.It was originally a response to someone who wanted to activate gps remotely if they lost their phone in order to use 'lookout' and then deactivate it afterwards to save battery. I though I'd make it its own thread since it took me ages to write, and it can effectively replace several features of the 'lookout' security app.
