HTC Desire : GPS Usage Makes 3G Connection Stop / How To Fix?

Jun 27, 2010

Whenever I start to use my GPS (not just switching it on but actually use it) for instance using Google maps and navigation, it seems to kill my 3G connection. I can still see the icon for connection however but it stalls completely. I have to switch GPS off, then force wi-fi on, then switch wi-fi off again to establish 3G connection again. This means that I can't use my GPS at all whenever I'm off wi-fi and want to use 3G. This is absolutely not OK. I've just started with this Android business, choosing this over iPhone. Please help me not to regret my choice.

HTC Desire :: Track / Stop Data Usage - Ways To Conserve Data?

Aug 23, 2010

I just signed up for these forums because soon I will be an HTC Desire owner in Canada. Having never owned a smartphone before I do have a few questions. The plan I intend on signing up for is the Telus Student 40 and that will come with only 100mb of data. Now I don't see myself being too data using heavy so I feel like I will be able to live with it. However I do have some questions regarding my data consumption.

1. Is it possible to completely stop all data usage by somehow disabling the data connection if I find myself reaching my limit?
2. What are ways to track my data usage to make sure I don't use too much data?
3. What are good ways to conserve data usage? I'm getting the feeling that there are some applications that will constantly be sending data back and forth updating themselves, is it possible to have these applications but stop them from constantly updating and only have them update when I want to access the application?.........

General :: Kernel For GT-S5300 - Data Usage Defender App Not Able To Filter Connection?

Jul 12, 2012

Kernel with fixed Iptables/Netfilter issue!! I found that my rooted Galaxy Pocket GT-S5300 has a problem applying the iptables/Netfilter. My Droidwall nor Data Usage Defender app cannot be able to filter the connection thus, I won't be able to manage my data usage at al. Below the quote from the page:

Quote:

Common error messages:

1. can't initialize iptables table 'filter': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?) Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

This error message unfortunately means that your kernel does not support iptables/netfilter, so DroidWall will not work.

The only possible solution is to flash a customized ROM (or kernel) with full netfilter support.

2. no chains/target/match by that name

This error message unfortunately means that your kernel does not support netfilter owner match module, so DroidWall will not work.

The only possible solution is to flash a customized ROM (or kernel) with full netfilter support.

Ensure that the following configuration option is enabled in the kernel (either built-in or as a module): CONFIG_NETFILTER_XT_MATCH_OWNER

Pporting the kernel/ROM that has already support the iptables/Netfilter for Galaxy Pocket GT-S5300?

HTC Desire :: Tapping Camera Area Makes Slight Rattle Sound?

Apr 9, 2010

How amazing is the desire I absolutely love it, best phone ever. Had to get that off my chest to fellow desire owners. Anyways when I put my phone down it makes a slight rattle, after inspecting closer I noticed that when I tap around the camera area it also makes a slight rattle. I have looked around and found that people are having the same problem with the Nexus one and Hero and apparently its the auto focus.

HTC EVO 4G :: No Internet Connection - Loading Bar Go Halfway And Stop

Jul 7, 2010

For the past 3 days I have been having problems browsing the internet. Sometimes when trying to load a page the green loading bar goes about halfway and stops (the page is already loaded), if I try to stop the action and hit the X button it says 'Stopping' but the bar stays stuck on halfway, and when I try to enter text like in google, nothing happens when I hit the search button. Its not my internet as this happens both on WiFi and 3G. I would take the phone back but I am a bit scared as my phone so far has no light leakage, 30+ hours of battery life, hardware 003, and a nice novatec screen.

HTC Desire :: Usage Tracker App?

May 30, 2010

Was going through the homescreens thread and getting some ideas, picked up the battery usage widget. Thanks for that. Is there an app (widget) out there that tracks the phone minutes, sms, mms and data usage? That would be great, as i have a light contract. At a glance it would be nice to see what i've used. I noticed there was a data widget, what was that called?

HTC Desire :: Battery Usage On Andrioid 2.2

Sep 3, 2010

this thread directed at those that did not root or unlock their HTC desire but uses its original android.. before i go on, my standard usage is as follows, mostly sms using, a phone call or two, less than an hour of wifi browsing at night.. on android 2.1, my battery lasted roughly 2 days and a bit more.. after updating to android 2.2 via wifi through auto update on the phone. today was my third day after charging my phone to 100%.
its now almost 5pm, on my third day and my battery still has a whopping 40% of battery life left.. so just wondering whether anyone else have this miraculous boost of battery life with android 2.2 or not.

I'm wondering what the best charging strategy is to get the battery working at its best. Let it run down to almost empty then fully charge each time or just keep topping it up when I'm near power?

HTC Desire :: Suspend Constant 1-2% CPU Usage

Nov 12, 2010

I've had System Panel's monitoring feature enabled overnight and I've noticed something using the CPU all night at between 1 and 2%. I have managed to track it down to a process called 'Suspend'. I just wondered if this was normal for whatever this process is? I would have thought the CPU should be at 0% if I'm not using the phone.

HTC Desire :: How Long Charge Phone On Very First Usage?

Oct 7, 2010

I just bought an HTC Desire a few hours ago after having been tempted to get it having seen a colleague's Legend. Anyway, the manual that comes with it doesn't really cover that much, and the only information about that battery I can find is on the beginning where it says that it takes about 3 hours to fully charge it. However, it doesn't mention how long you should charge it on your very first usage: until the LED-light turns green, or more (like when I had to charge my old Nokia for 8 hours the first time)? If anyone would lend a helping hand, I'd really appreciate it.

HTC Desire :: Battery Life - Breakdown Of Usage

Sep 27, 2010

We've all heard the horror stories (I just bought my Desire and the battery lasts for about 4 hours!) and the fanboy wankery (I get at least 3 days of heavy use!) So today I unplugged my Desire at about 6am and set off for work. It's 7pmish now and here's some stuff you may like to look at. I have 3G disabled, Sync on manual, no "live" widgets (just WiFi and bluetooth) live wallpaper (nexus) and screen brightness on auto. Here's the battery status (rounded up from 25% according to Battery Info in the Testing app)

The breakdown of usage:
My phone was idle for 9 hours and 45 mins:
The Display was on for a mere 2hours and 46 mins
With only 1.5 hours of WiFi:
And 30 mins of calls:
So, that'll be less than 3 hours of usage.

HTC Desire :: Google Maps 3G Data Usage

Jun 1, 2010

My phone seemed to be using a lot of my months quota of data without me actually doing anything. I thought it may have something to do with google collecting location data in the background so turned off 'use wireless networks' in location settings. This seems to have fixed the problem but is there a way of having this setting enabled so the phone only uses 3G when in an application rather than using my data usage without being in any particular program?

HTC Desire :: Battery Status With 4 Hours Usage?

Apr 2, 2010

I was panicking a little yesterday as I thought I would miss the delivery of my new Desire. This was not the case at 5:30pm it arrived and it truly is an amazing phone. It took me around 4 hours to totally kill the battery from new (when you get the battery it only has a little charge in it) so this I was really pleased about, this was with WiFi on constantly and using it nonstop on twitter, flicker, taking photos, android market, internet browsing and basically just finding my ways around the menus as i've been out of the game for a while. I really think that the worries I was having about not liking it and reverting back to my iPhone are blown out of the window, this device really has blown me away and the integrated twitter app Peep is also very good, although I am now using tweetcasterPRO. It had a full charge last night so I am going to hammer the phone today to see how quickly I can get the battery to go flat so I have a rough idea if one charge will last me through the day.

HTC Desire :: Data Usage By Individual Apps

Oct 24, 2010

Can't find any previous discussions about this: is there a way I can see how much data is being used by individual apps? I use 3G watchdog to monitor total data usage, but I can't find a way to see what is using the data.

Last month I used about 550mb of my 750mb FUP allowance without doing anything to limit data use. Nothing has changed, but this month Watchdog is predicting a total use of 1.2gb at my next billing date!

Samsung Moment :: Spare Parts Other Usage / Network Usage Too High

Dec 1, 2009

I don't know if it's my phone or what but when I look up the Other Usage on my phone, it shows it "Running" more than 2/3 of the time.And on Network Usage, "Android System" and "Media" use a great deal of the phone as well.I think this might have to do with my "android.process.acore" crashing every once in a while when it's asleep. Based on everyone's feedback I might have to return the Moment for a third time.

HTC Desire :: High Data Usage: Listening To Pre-loaded Mp3?

Jul 14, 2010

I've spent the last 2 hours listening to a mix of mp3's that were either pre-loaded onto my sd card and that I've added to it myself (40-60 split) and I've noticed on 3G watchdog that my usage has shot up 40% odd!Why has this happened when I'm listening to stuff from my sd card?I have installed the last.fm app for what it's worth, is it doing soemthing it shouldn't be? I've had a look in my task manager and there is nothing obvious running that shouldn't be, if that makes sense.
