General :: USB Tethering Creates Endless New Windows Networks

Sep 18, 2012

Whenever I tether my laptop via the USB cable it takes a long time for the laptop to connect and when it does, it says "Connected to Network X", where X is a number. Everytime I reconnect via USB X increases by 1 so the last time I did it I was on Network 43!!!!! I accept that this could be in part a windows thing and not a GS3 thing BUT when I connect via a Wifi Hotspot it connects really really quickly and always says I am connected to AndroidAP. Its as if the USB tethering firmware is

Therefore connecting via hotspot seems much more stable and smooth however I was under the impression that the laptop internet speed will be quicker using USB tether rather than wifi and as I primarilly use my SGS3 as my home broadband connection I want to try and configure it to get the fastest speed on my laptop as possible. If I do an internet speed check on my SGS3 while my laptop is tethered the phone connection is always faster than the doing the same on the laptop. I guess this should be perhaps expected but as much as 4Mbits/s. I.e My phone was getting speeds of 6Mbits/sec but without having any apps open on the phone, my laptop would only get 2Mbits/s?

General :: Bluetooth Reverse Tethering To Windows 7 PC?

Dec 14, 2012

How can I reverse tether my Android phones to my PC via Bluetooth? Is this even possible?

PC is running Windows 7 x64. Phone is an HTC HD2 running JellyBean AOSP from NAND. I know Wifi would be easiest, but this is a work PC and company policy is we are not allowed to run our own Wifi networks.

I managed to connect the HD2 to the PC via Bluetooth with a PAN network, it only worked when I turned on Internet Tethering on the phone. this makes the HD2 into the server and PC into the client so PC can use phone's internet connection. I need the reverse! I need HD2 to be the client, PC to be the server. I found a Bluetooth PAN client from the Play store, but it can't connect via PAN to the PC. I assume because the MS BT stack only has a PAN client and not server. Is there such a thing as a PAN server for PC? I've looked at Widcomm and Bluesoleil BT stacks, but neither specifically mentions having a PAN server.

I found this tutorial that sounds promising, using DUN instead of PAN: URL....It's for reverse tethering an Android device to another Android device. Looks like BlueVPN on the Android side will do what I want, be a DUN client. However, similar problem to PAN, I can't find a DUN server. It's apparently not built into the MS BT stack either.

Is it even possible to reverse tether an Android phone to PC over Bluetooth? Only other idea I can think of is to use an intermediate device as a bridge. USB reverse tether a phone to PC, and use phone's Bluetooth tethering abilities to tether my bluetooth phone to it.

General :: MMS Creates New Thread For Same Contact

Jun 9, 2014

I have a message thread between my fiance and I. But, for some reason, when i send her an MMS, it will create a new thread. So, then i will have 2 message threads between the same contact. Even when I am in the actual thread itself and try to add a photo that way, as soon as i click send, it appears as if the mms will go inside the same thread i'm already in, but then it disappears and when i go back to my conversations page, it shows as a new thread. Then all further sms' received will go inside the new thread the MMS created.

I already tried [URL] .... but all that did was merge the threads together, but, then again, i send an MMS and it creates a new thread.

i did notice, however, when i use SMS Backup and Restore and i use the "Backup selected threads" feature, it will show the phone number in different formats. EX: +1xxxxxxxxxx and +1 xxx-xxx-xxxx

I know that has something to do with it because every time i tried the method in the link above, The new MMS that created a new thread, will show up in the .xml file under a different number format than the other SMS'.

I don't understand why my phone doesn't recognize the number formats as the same contact .

Here is a screenshot of what i mean by 'Multiple Threads for the Same Contact'

General :: Galaxy S3 / Bootloop / Endless Restart (Android 4.3)

May 25, 2014

My Galaxy S3

GT-I9300
Newest Firmware I9300XXUGNA5 / I9300DBTGNB1 (DBT)
16 GB
NOT rooted / original ROM and absolutely unmodified

is restarting all the time and so caught in a bootloop. Most of the time it restarts when reaching the PIN or Code screen, sometimes I mange to enter the code and can see the desktop for some seconds. Then it restarts, endlessly until I remove the battery. Most of the time it directly restarts in the bootlop when putting in the battery, but sometimes not and this way the recovery and download mode can be accessed.

I need my phone and some data on my phone so urgently (unfortunately some are directly on the phone).

What I tried:

- remove battery for hours
- load battery for a long time (over night)
- recovery mode -> delete cache
- starting with / without SIM
- starting with / without SD card
- managed to activate flight mode within seconds in loop
- used other battery
- flashed original firmware with Odin two times (4.3, I9300XXUGNA5)

But ... It restarts again and again. I really want to avoid a complete reset due to the fact that there is really important data on the phone and in addition some really unique photos. I don't think that there is a hardware defect since the hone sometimes starts untill it reaches the main screen.

Possible reason: I use "HD Widgets" and there are some widgets on the main screen. When I manage to see the main screen for some seconds I can see the widgets loading (emty spaces with progress bar). I use this app fore some time but maybe there was an udate causing problems. Maybe this app or others are the trigger.

General :: Endless Download Of Random Photo Despite Hard Reset?

Nov 15, 2012

A friend of mine has a Droid Incredible 2 (ADR 6350). Over the past few days it has been downloading some random photo every 15 minutes, saving a new version in her Gallery each time. She installed anti-virus software and it found nothing, then she uninstalled suspect apps (she doesn't have many on the phone)-- did nothing. Then (and this is the part that really confuses me), she did a factory reset and wiped everything but the SD card. Sure enough, it kept downloading the random photo every 15 minutes once it was setup again (and with no non-core apps re-installed). It is some photo for a flooding house, she has no idea what it is from. A

BTW, it does stop when she puts the phone in airplane mode and kills the data connection.

HTC Incredible :: Endless Reboot Loop - Overheating?

Sep 12, 2010

I have seen some others having this problem, but they talk about it being a glitch associated with tower switching? But I think my endless reboot loop is due to heat. I did not have this problem until 2.2. I can just be surfing the web or running any simple app and the phone gets really hot and bam. reboot...reboot..reboot. Have to pull the battery to stop it.

After reading a few other threads, I did the factory reset nd even completely cleaned my external card. I installed all my apps again. Then I used the web browser for about 5 minutes and ..... reboot loop.

Anyone else having this problem? I guess I am just going to have to go to verizon and get a refurb, but then I might also get an SLCD huh? Am I really going to tell the difference between those two screens? Will verizon only replace my phone with another incredible? I am just sick of this reboot thing and don't know what else to do.

HTC Incredible :: Calendar Bug / Creates Events Off By One Day

May 3, 2010

I want to let you know about a glitch with HTC's calendar that I have noticed and that HTC confirmed to me today on the telephone.Occasionally, when creating a calendar event, the calendar app will record the event as being one day later than the date selected by the user. Apparently, according to the HTC rep with whom I spoke, this issue is known and they are working on it.Clearly, it is a software glitch, but it is a particularly unhelpful one for those of use relying on accurate calendars

Android :: Streaming Video Files Endless Buffering

Dec 14, 2009

I have a problem streaming live video files. When I stream a file say of duration 5 minutes, it stops after streaming 2 to 3 minutes and enters in to endless buffering state. The VideoViews's OnBufferingListener is endlessly executed, however it shows that the buffering is not progressing anymore : MediaPlayer's buffer says it has buffered for example 90% whereas when I call videoView.getBufferPercentage(), I get something very low, like 1% or 5% ... After a while in the buffering state, the application crashes. It seems like the buffering is taking all the memory.

HTC EVO 4G :: Endless HTC Sense Force Close Loop After Froyo Update

Aug 3, 2010

I did the offical Froyo update on my phone this afternoon. It was stock with the latest OTA update 1.47. Followed the directions for the update and it went by smoothly until after I tried setting up my phone (Google account). I did a hard reset and everything was fine until a few minutes ago. I was able to sign into my Google, Facebook and Aim accounts. It is now back to an endless loop of trying to load Sense and force closing. Of course I can do another hard rest but is it too early to assume the force close loop problem will return? My phone is not functioning and I cannot even go into the setting to turn of Sense.

Android :: PendingIntent Always Creates New Activity Instance?

May 21, 2010

My app consists of an Activity and a service that runs in the background. The service periodically checks a website for an alarm condition. When the service detects the alarm, it should put a user notification into the status bar. If the user clicks the notification, it should display the app's activity. If the activity is already running, that activity should become visible. If the activity is not currently running, it should be created.

However the notification created by my service *always* creates a new instance of the activity, whether the activity is currently running or not. How do I get the desirable behavior?

Here is my service pseudo-code:

General :: WiFi / Unable To Scan For Networks

Mar 18, 2013

In Jan. I switched from Sprint to a different carrier and got a new phone with the new carrier which left me with my HTC Evo 4G and I've been trying to use the Wifi so I can use it at work or at home when I don't feel like using my laptop and whenever I try to turn my WiFi on it just turns on then off and tells me "Unable to scan for networks".

I've noticed that it says that my IP address is unknown and Bluetooth isn't working either. I did a factory reset on my phone and all that did was delete my Doctor Who background.

Sidenote: my husband was on my family plan and he had the same phone with the same service and his WiFi is working fine.

General :: No Push Notifications On Certain WiFi Networks

Sep 6, 2011

The problem I'm experiencing is that I am not receiving push notifications of any kind while my phone is locked/sleeping (screen off) on my wifi network at work.

My home wifi network and mobile connection have no such problems, i get the notifications instantly. My wifi is set to never sleep.

I do get the notifications a couple of seconds after I unlock my phone though. Not very useful because I have to keep checking my phone.

Not sure if this has anything to do with it but my home network is WEP secured and work is WPA/WPA2 secured.

General :: Mobile Networks - Setting Goes Automatically In GSM Only?

Apr 25, 2014

I have a problem with my android tablett, with sim card slot.In the mobile network settin, we can find this :

GSM/WCDMA (auto connect) - automatically switches between 2G/3G modes. When signal strength is low, 3G is favored more

GSM only - 2G only mode. When 2G signal strength is low, you get no data.

WCDMA only - 3G only mode. When 3G signal strength is low, you get no data.

But in my case, i can't switch to " GSM/WCDMA " or " WCDMA only ", it still changing in gsm only, when i change to " GSM/WCDMA " or " WCDMA only ", the setting goes automaticly in " GSM only ".

With Android 4.2, I can't do that it seems and I am left with upper drop-down menu. Any way around that to make my access to Wireless Networks settings faster? Even, better it would be to have access to various system settings as described above.

I am on the Three network down south and so long as my phone connects to Three (UK) when it roams i dont get charged a cent. Sometimes it likes to jump to O2 or other networks and it is costing me a lot of money. Is there a way to fix the network its allowed to connect to without turning off the "roaming" setting?
