HTC Incredible :: Shutting Down And Not Turning Back On1

Jun 11, 2010

Ok, this is really strange about 3 days ago my Incredible would just randomly turn off (the battery wasn't even close to being an issue.) When I tried to turn the power on the phone would not respond at all. If I take the battery out and put it back in, the phone will boot just fine....This has happened 4 or 5 times in the last 3 days. Additionally today for some other strange reason I was on a call and the phone randomly would end the call. I wasn't hitting the end key on accident I had the phone on speaker, so I am not sure if its a related issue.

General :: Shutting Down Phone From Recovery?

Oct 10, 2013

Is there a way to shut the phone down straight from the recovery? I know you can reboot from the recovery into the OS, but that gives me second partition Link2SD problems, which results in various settings such as all my account and sync settings being reset, which is a pain to set up. Is it possible to press and hold the power button on the recovery main menu after you have completed all your operations so that it shuts the phone down without rebooting? Or is this harmful to the phone? What about a battery pull at the main menu so that is shuts down after you complete all your operations?

When I trun my phone on, the scene changes from the scene I had chosen (the waving grass) to "current (unsaved)".If I change it to the one I prefer (saved with my name) I am asked to "save or cancel" the incorrect one.I click cancel, and all is well.But why does it change and how do I keep the scene selected that I want?I just want it to stick on the scene that I have chosen.

Samsung Captivate :: Want To Exchange Phone / Phone Randomly Shutting Off

Aug 3, 2010

So I got my phone a week ago or so and it just now started having problems with the GPS and randomly shutting off as well as the battery life being drained within a couple of hours from fully charged. Im guessing I should exchange my phone for a new one within my warranty period. Do I need to bring the original box and everything along with it to exchange it?

General :: Turning Off GSM Networks Without Turning Off FM Radio

I found that by typing on the call screen:

*#*#4636#*#* ( *#*#INFO#*#* )

display the menu:

"Phone info" and scroll down to

"Turn off radio"

and you can access some additionnal settings and it seems you can turn off GSM networks without disabling FM radio or other networks (source:


I try it and this is working on my Samsung Galaxy S II. But... any gadget or a small program (maybe on Market) whit which this can be done? (with simple one touch of a single icon on the screen)

HTC Eris :: Phone Keeps Shutting Off

Jul 21, 2010

Well good news is I woke up this morning to the update!! Sweet...Or so I thought, Long story short I let it do it things while I was getting ready this morning (30min) and it seemed to work fine (Not 100% sure, wasn't really looking at my phone while driving), then all of a sudden on my ride to work it caught my eye and reset itself, No biggie, then again and again and again...and you guessed it AGAIN!! it won't stop resetting itself! I tried to take out the battery but that didn't work and I'm not going to do the "hard reset" until I show Verizon what it's doing....So has anyone else had this problem after receiving the newest update?

HTC Incredible :: Phone Keeps Shutting Off While Using Multiple Applications At Once?

Oct 14, 2010

My phone seems to shut off or start a reboot loop when I either multitask and use multiple apps at once or when I attempt to do something that is data intensive such as stream a video. It then either just boots up and once it gets to the home screen then reboots again or sometimes the phone will shut off, vibrate multiple times, then the green LED will start to blink. Once this happens the only way to get it turn on again is to pull the battery. I was using the stock 2.2 froyo with no issues until this randomly started to happen about a week ago. I thought it might be an issue with the rom so now I am currently running the 2.2 with the Uncommon 1.1 rom, baseband:, kernel: htc-kernel@and18-2 #1, build number 3.21.605.1 CL231334 release keys.

Samsung Captivate :: Phone Shutting Off Randomly?

Jul 22, 2010

Has anyone else experienced trying to wake your phone from sleep only to find it has been powered off? Strangely, this did not happen the first 2 days, but started after charging the phone fully for a second time. Could this any way be app related? I've only downloaded a few so far such as ATK. I checked my phone right after writing this, and what do you know, it turned off....

General :: Samsung S3 - Turning Phone Into WiFi Hotspot?

Jan 23, 2014

I have a Samsung S3 with VirginMobile. I know in the past several years ago, you have to root the phone in order to make your phone into a WiFi Hotspot.

I just wondering if this is still true? Can I make my phone into a WiFi Hotspot without rooting the phone? If so, how can I do it?

The reason I ask, I am planning to get an Android tablet. I am going to end up getting a off brand Android tablet.

General :: Phone Turning Itself On / Off - Network Signal Loss

Nov 4, 2012

Last night my phone decided it wanted to be annoying and started turning itself on and off on its own. This has caused me to lose my network signal.

So far, I have turned the phone off (had it powered down all night while I slept).

Removed the sim card.

Used the recovery options to clear the cache.

Simulated a battery pull.

Thus far, nothing has worked.

General :: Phone Turning Itself Off And On - Continuous Never Ending Cycle

Dec 9, 2013

My phone is acting really strange. It turns itself off and then on again and again in this cycle as if the power button is always being pressed.

I can sometimes get into my recovery (CWM) but when I try to go deeper into the menu. I get kicked back to the main screen as if im pressing the power button to go "back" until the phone gets completely turned off again.

I noticed something too. When I pull out the battery and put it back on. The phone turns itself on without me even pressing the power button. Then the cycle continues again.

Could this be software, ROM, recovery, partition related or does this sound something hardware related?

Samsung Captivate :: Phone Randomly Shutting Down After Updates

Sep 25, 2010

Ever since I've updated my phone shuts down randomly. Maybe once every other day, sometimes less. It would be a huge issue but my phone is also my alarm clock for getting up for work at 4am. I don't have any app killers, or battery savers installed. One thing I did notice POST update was, when you go into the running applications menu. The uptimes on the system apps seem to indicate the phone shuts them down to sleep or something. Several times Ive noticed, that even though my phone has been on for several days, the system apps have been running for 5/ 8 hours.

General :: Turning Off Anonymous Data Collection After Phone Activated

Apr 18, 2013

I used to work with phones and am aware that most Android phones have two boxes you can check/uncheck the first time you turn them on. One says something about using your location for Google apps. The other says something like "allow Google to collect anonymous location data". When I got a new phone today, the clerk turned it on when I wasn't paying attention as part of the setup process and checked both boxes without checking with me first. Where can I disable these features now that the phone has already gone through its initial setup process?

Edit: Found the answer to one of these shortly after posting due to a better-worded search. Apparently turning off "Use wireless networks" and "Use GPS satellites" under "Location and security" turns off anonymous collection of data. (I had seen these while searching the phone earlier, but the caption does not make it clear that checking them enables Google to collect anonymous location data even when you aren't running any apps. It's only when you uncheck them and try to check them again that it pops up with this information.)

General :: Jiayu G4 Shutting Down

Nov 20, 2013

I've had the phone for 2 months without any issues (other than the crappy GPS and compass) and about a week ago, all of a sudden it started to randomly turn itself off. At about the same time it completely destroyed the SD card, after warning me a few times that it was 'unexpectedly removed' which always fixed itself on its own within a few minutes - anyway, gutted about losing all my precious data but I suppose it's otherwise unrelated, the new card runs OK so far.

The shutdowns occur on average 3 times a day and the phone can't be turned on without removing the battery, which is the biggest annoyance. Running stock G4W 20130819-085550 (upgraded from previous version but not sure what that was) but even tried MIUI 3.11.16 by sta-s2z - same problem. Bought it from which appears to be down so can't even ask about warranty. Not aware of installing anything that could be the cause.

Some logs from CatLog are attached, surprised by the huge number of errors, some fatal in case of the 2nd and 3rd log but they don't seem to be the same cause (?) also suppose the 1st log might not have any fatal errors only cos I had the write period set too long, then reduced it to 5 lines.

General :: Pressing Play / Pause Button On Headset Keeps Turning Phone On

Mar 26, 2014

Anyways, whenever i'm listening to music, and I press the play/pause button on my headset to control my music tracks, my phone turns on. This get's really annoying because every time my phone turns on, it stays on for a few seconds, and this really kills battery life. I've tried lurking around my phone's settings and even my launcher settings.

My phone is a rooted HTC Wildfire S running AOKP custom rom with Nova Launcher Prime. And if it makes any difference, I'm using the "Start" lock screen from the Play Store.

Android :: Unique Uses For Locale - Turning The Ringer Down - Turning GPS/Bluetooth/wifi

Nov 17, 2009

I see another thread on Locale, but it seems to be focused on it technical shortcomings. I thought a thread about how people are using this app would be helpful.

Now... I use Locale for the following:

- Turning the ringer down when I get to work (obviouse one)
- Turning GPS/Bluetooth/wifi on when I plug it in the phone (think car dock)
- Turn on Wifi when I get near my known hot spots.
- Turn off GPS/Bluetooth/wifi off and turn down brightness when my battery is low.

And the last one is a good one for me...

- I have a GV number. When I call my phone from that number, it turns the ringer volume all the way up and it turns on wifi and GPS. This is my "lost phone aid". It turns on the locating features so I can see where the phone is using iGoogle and Latitude, and I can hear the phone if it is "in the cushions" on vibrate.

Anyone else get creative with Locale?

HTC EVO 4G :: How To Tell If Phone Is Off W/o Turning It On?

Jul 8, 2010

I just want to verify that my phone is off before bed, because I forget whether I've turned off my phone or whether it's just sleeping.I pick up my phone, but I can't verify that it's turned off without unintentionally turning it on, because the only way to check that I know of is to press the power/sleep button. Unfortunately, that will turn on the phone if I've already turned it off, and therefore I have to wait as it boots up, then power it down.Is there a way to verify that an Evo phone is turned off without turning it on in the process of verifying that it is off?
