General :: Samsung Galaxy S2 Unable To Text More Than 80 Characters?

Nov 8, 2013

Last year when I was living in South Korea I bought a Samsung Galaxy S2 and I had no problems with it but since i've been back in the UK every time I text it converts my message into a MMS even though i'm only sending about 80 characters. It's really annoying and means I can only send a few words on each text hah

I've read up online and ive tried downloading some SMS apps such as handcent etc but nothing is working I can't afford to buy a new phone currently, desperately trying to fix this.

General :: Samsung Galaxy Nexus Won't Send Special Characters Anymore

Jul 28, 2013

Samsung Galaxy Nexus. I could send special characters (i.e: �, �, �, �, �, ect) in text messages. Then, it wouldn't anymore. I believe my phone updated to Jelly Bean before it stopped, so it may be connected to that. When I try to send a message with any type of special character in it, the message simply won't send. No matter if I use the messenger than came on the phone, or the one I installed (Handcent). I still get the message just not sending. It'll send once I take the characters out of the message, though. I can normally receive messages containing special characters, but they sometimes it shows up as squares.

Mostly, I want to know if I can fix it. I understand that it may be the update, which I'll have to wait out. Or that it could be the phone itself, which in that case I'd just have to wait till I can upgrade again. It's just very annoying not being able to send accents or special characters. Especially to my Spanish only speaking friends.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Phone Lacking Characters From Key Map

Jul 28, 2010

This one mostly goes out to my fellow Swedish forum dwellers but if anyone else has a solution please chime in. My brother just got himself a Galaxy S, partly on my recommendation. He bought it from a Swedish (we presume) web shop but he seems to be lacking Swedish characters from they key map. He is not using Swype but the Samsung keyboard, he changed the phones language layout to Swedish but that wasn't enough. If you check the keyboard language, its set to "automatic" but he cannot - apart from me, set it to Swedish. This seems very strange, is it an import phone? And if so - can he add the Swedish language somehow?

Samsung Moment :: Strange Characters Received In Text Messages

Dec 1, 2010

So my girlfriend is having an issue with her phone. I don't see it being an issue with mine but it might be something else. She is receiving non-alpha numeric characters in her text messages. So far shes gotten it from me and one of her other friends not knowing what to say she called it "caligraphy". Anyways, I am on Metro and her friend is on Verizon. I'd figure its a CDMA issue but she is on a Samsung Moment on Sprint which is also CDMA so idunno.

To me they send fine, but to her some of the texts she receives come in all garbled. Not sure whats going on, anyone got any ideas? Her phone is unrooted, stock, and like a week and a half ago had a factory reset done. Its 2.1 android. In this screenshot I asked her to forward me the "jibberish." She had tried to do it several times earlier but i never got the messages, this time i got it so heres a screenie for you all.

General :: Samsung Galaxy S - Unable To Unjoin Contacts?

Aug 20, 2011

I am using a Samsung Galaxy S, with a program called DejaOffice. It syncs with a PC remotely just fine. Then it syncs with the native Android database. Recently it has started "joining" two similar contacts (Mother and Daughter, same home address, different cells numbers, different first names). The Android does this by itself. A contact disappears from the Android contacts database, and I go check one of the two contacts and find that the other has been joined to it. When I edit the remaining contact there are two Phone tabs, each with the correct information in it. I understand that if I then push the menu on the phone, there should be an option to Unjoin. But nothing happens when I press that menu button. If I simply select the contact (edit is then one of the menu choices), there is a Join menu selection (which works), but not an unjoin option.

General :: Unable To Root SCH-I589 Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos

Jun 29, 2012

I tried rooting my Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos SCH-I589 phone running GINGERBREAD.FA13 (v 2.3.6) using various methods but to no avail.

UnlockRoot gives the error "FAIL TO GET SHELL ROOT" and their website claims there is nothing they can do about it. I tried downloading other update files and placing them in the root of my sdcard but on starting the phone in recovery mode there is no option of installing from sdcard. On confirming that a new OS is to be loaded, it straight away goes to USB downloading screen (even when no usb is connected).

Any ways and means to successfully root the phone.

And before you recommend I watch the xda Noob video, let me just mention that there is no dedicated section for this particular model, nothing apart from Unlockroot and recovery mode pops up in any of the searches on any of the search engines, there are no other posts relating to rooting of this phone in this forum or any other forum on xda. (And yes I know this phone sucks but I desperately needed GSM+CDMA dual sim and this was the only option to me).

General :: Unable To Wipe Data From Samsung Galaxy I9003

Jan 21, 2012

Samsung Galaxy i9003. The phone was on stock firmware 2.2.1 but it was having a lot of FCs and sudden restarts. Also, my friend wanted to upgrade it to Gingerbread.

I managed to flash a stock firmware 2.3.4 Arabic into the phone through Odin. I selected re-partition, then in 3e recovery mode I wiped both partition cache and user data.

However, when the phone booted, it was upgraded to 2.3.4 as it should but all the data and apps were kept as they are! I tried a factory reset from setting and still all the data remain intact.

I booted into recovery again and wiped all data but all remain the same! I flashed the stock firmware again using Odin and still no data were wiped! I even formatted the internal storage with no luck...The phone wasn't rooted, how this is possible?

General :: Samsung Galaxy S2 I910 - Unable To Move / Install Applications To SD

Apr 13, 2012

i have been unable to move/install apps to my sd card ever since changing to MIUI I'm not sure whether this is a problem with the ROM or not (i think i may have insalled applications to SD on a previous GB version of MIUI)

I am using a rooted Samsung Galaxy S2 I9100 with the latest MIUI based on 4.0.4. before MIUI i was on CM7 stable and i remember messing around with some settings there to try and get my phone to read music off the sd card as well as internal memory-(where all my downloaded music was going). I also may have done a dodgy partition on my old 32gb micro sd or some how partitioned my internal storage of my phone...

I have recently successfully partitioned my Sandisk 64gb micro SDXC to this tutorial...

[URL]...

when i go to move a 'moveable' app eg. Paypal through 'Link2Sd' it comes up with an error saying "pkg:/data/app/com.paypal.android.p2pmobile-1.apk Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_CONTAINER_ERROR]

when i go to move a 'moveable' app through 'App 2 SD Pro' it says 'couldn't move app'

the following are my phones storage details...this last picture was taken before i partitioned my SD

General :: Text To Speech On Samsung Galaxy S4?

Jul 28, 2013

So, I have this annoyance on the S4 that occurs whenever I use the in-built Gallery and Internet app. Whenever I select a photo to delete, the phone goes "Tick box, ticked." Or when I unelected a photo, "Tick box, unticked." Another example of this is when I go onto the Internet on the phone, and I go to a webpage, the phone goes "Page, refreshed." I've tried to turn everything associated with this problem, off but it just keeps re-occurring. How to turn this off.

Android :: Unable To Display Chinese Characters In LogCat / Way To Do

May 11, 2009

I have a statement like:

System.out.println("My simplified Chinese characters: 好�");

However in the LogCat (Eclipse Plugin) the Chinese characters appear as some junk chars:

05-11 22:14:11.182: INFO/System.out(31582): My simplified Chinese characters: ååƒ

First, I thought it was a LogCat font issue but I tried a whole bunch of Chinese fonts and all gave the same result.

The Chinese characters display fine in my Java source code (UTF-8 encoded).

Also the chars appear fine in the Emulator. Any thoughts?

General :: Not Getting Pictures In Text Messages On Samsung Galaxy Precedent

Oct 10, 2011

I got my Samsung Galaxy Precedent last week, and after some bumps trying to get used to this, I've been able to fix most problems I've had, except with images in texts.

I can send or attach messages to texts, but I don't get any images being sent to me. The Precedent runs on Straight Talk's network, and has "unlimited" talk, text and data. It's letting me send as far as I know, but I can't get any incoming pics in texts.

Aug 11, 2013

I've had my Samsung galaxy s4 for a while, and I've never had a problem. But now, if I get a new text message, it doesn't ring or put the envelope in my notification bar. The only way to know is to go into my messages and see the new messages. I've resetted my messaging settings, but it still doesn't tell me that I have a text message. Other apps like Snapchat and Facebook notifications work.

General :: Clearing Suggestive Text In Email To Field On Samsung Galaxy S3?

Nov 11, 2013

I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 (4G). In the email application (standard) it seems to store all of the email addresses from emails I've received, even SPAM emails.

Now when I send an email and enter the "to" field, it suggests these email addresses. How do I clear out all of these stored suggestive email addresses from my phone? None of them are in my contacts lists.

Im using just normal pop email and the standard email app. I've tried cleaners, clearing cache, deleting email accounts - everything.

Motorola Droid :: Text Messages (Over 160 Characters) Sent In Multiple Segments

Jan 23, 2010

I don't know if anyone else tried/got this message but I have the stock messaging app and accidentally sent over the 160 character limit and instead of getting the verizon message that says it only sends the first 160 characters to non-verizon customers. I got a message that read "messages sent to non-verizon customers over 160 characters are sent as plain text in multiple segments". Looks like verizon is now splitting text messages for us. Just thought I would pass this along to everyone. Only problem I have seen so far is every time you go over the 160 limit verizon sends you that message every single time kinda gets annoying.

Motorola Droid :: Question Mark On Non ASCII Characters In Text Messages

Aug 22, 2010

I have a Droid with Android 2.1. I am on a CDMA network. I send messages to some people on a GSM and when we use non-ascii characters, like or or Japanese and such, over sms, the other end gets them as question marks �. I don't know anybody on a CDMA network so I can not test if the problem would be there too. I don't know if it is a problem between the networks or something wrong with my phone or what. Finding information in google has proven unsuccessful. Though I found some text naming it a 'common' problem.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Unable To Add Wireless Network

Sep 24, 2010

I have a problem with a brand new Galaxy i9000 and the wifi. I have managed to add one wifi network to it that I use at home. I have a second wifi network that I want to add, called cat, but when I try to add it from the Add wifi network place, it gives the error: Unable to save the network. i have tried a power on and off. Is there a maximum number of wireless networks one can save, or is there a problem with my actual 'phone? The phone is very laggy as well, and almost impossible to use when 3G is active. (Load averages are as high as 30 sometimes).

Samsung Galaxy S :: Unable To Download Kies

Aug 7, 2010

My wife recently got a SGS and we have just tried to download Kies so that she can put some music etc on it (she has a 16GB microsd card in it). However, when we try and install Kies it gets to the installation phase and then at the stage where it prompts you what to install, I selected "instal all" and then it thinks about it and comes back a minute later with a message "unable to connect to file server".Is this a common problem people have had? We are running Windows 7 64 bit, so I dont know if there is a compatability issue? If we cant get Kies to download (and I called their support line and of course no-one answers) is there another way to get data onto the phone and external card? Will I need to buy some kind of adaptor so that I can connect the microsd card and just treat it as any external hard drive?
