HTC Desire :: Internet Connections - No 3G Signals

Oct 3, 2010

Is there any option that makes it so the phone connects automatically when its required? For example, I open up the internet browser or an app that requires a connection and it starts the Internet connection without me having to do it manually? And is there a way of it disconnecting automatically when the connection is idle? Also, on my phone, when I am connected, I only ever see H, E and G but never 3G. I am on o2 in the UK, can anyone tell me why I'm not seeing 3G?

HTC Desire :: Only Getting GPRS Signals When Surfing Internet

Aug 7, 2010

I've had the Desire a few weeks now and I love it. My problem is that when I surf the mobile internet. I am only getting a GPRS signal? i.e., I am only getting the 'G' symbol and the arrows in the notification bar when I am surfing. I've been various parts of the country surfing the internet but never ever seem to be able to get anything other than GPRS? - I keep reading about 3G,EDGE and HSPDA but it just doesn't seem like my Desire will connect to these, just the bog standard GPRS? Any settings I need to change?

Cos I am thinking that my web pages could be loading a lot quicker. Its just annoying because you read that 3G covers most of the UK, yet everywhere I've been going doesn't seem to show anything other than the single 'G' on the notification bar. (One interesting thing to note is that I downloaded the 3G watchdog app and that app shows you a little 3G notification in the upper bar - strangely enough this shows I have a half decent 3G signal, yet whenever I am surfing I am only getting GPRS).

General :: CM7 Flashed - Now No Internet Signals And Camera Not Working

Mar 28, 2012

Once upon a time I used another website to customize my new Ascend. Long story very short, I messed it up. I am pretty sure I deleted some stock stuff, and since my computer that had all of the backups on it has died, I have no way of getting it back.

I've tried flashing back to stock, I've tried flashing to different roms, I've tried doing a factory reset, I've even tried loading the stock zipped rom from the sd card. Of all the methods that I tried, the only one that doesn't hang on the android screen is flashing a new rom - so I'm using CM7 for now. Everything else kills the phone, it never boots past the android screen.

I just went thru the gauntlet again, trying to "fix" my phone, but nothing worked except flashing CM7. My camera hasn't worked since I started messing with this phone when I first got it. Now, all of a sudden, my internet is having issues.

I have tried downloading the camera.apk, but it doesn't seem to do anything - is there something I'm supposed to do other than stick the apk file in the sd card root?. I still can't use the bar code scanner, or a shopping list scanner thingy - everything says the camera had an unexpected error and/or the device failed to give access to the camera.

Going to RoM Manager, trying to download a different RoM (I have paid for the premium) and I get the you must have CWM installed message. Okay, I wiped everything, that makes sense. Click the install and either nothing happens or I get the message can't get an internet signal. The browser will connect, if I click retry, retry, retry 20 times.

I really dont know if I can justify the cost of a new phone, seeing as I dont really need it - I just want it. Need fixing the signal and camera on this one? FYI, the 3g icon on the status bar shows connected.

General :: Manage All Outgoing Internet Connections?

Aug 6, 2013

I am Android user and will be soon have be out on a rgular basis. Till now i have been using a hi speed internet connection of the wifi. But i need on mobile connection as well. The one within my budget is a hi speed plan but data valumn based.

My question is regarding that whenever i switch on my wifi, every single app and service starts connecting to the net. The over all internet browsing speed falls, the phone performance falls. My a whole lot of data is downloaded.

Is there a way to selectively allow/dis allow apps and services from eating away data from my data based mobile internet plan ? So that say only few apps, like AC Forum app/Gtalk/Google+/Gmail/Email apps gets the internet and the others remain on hold till i reach home and open up the lock for all apps, etc via wifi. Is this reallu possible ? Or do i have to go cut off the mobile data when the capping for my plan is reached ?

HTC Desire :: Does Desire's Wifi Interfere With Other Wireless Connections?

Oct 20, 2010

I'm not sure if it's just me experienced this wired situation. I got TP-Link 108M wireless router at home and all my 4 PCs and 1 wireless cam connected to the router with no issues for 1.5 years. But ever since I brought in my HTC-Desire last week, I experienced dropped connections almost everyday. If I switch the Desire off, then every thing gets to normal. Have you experienced same? Is this something I can overcome by set some settings?

HTC Desire :: T Mobile Faster Internet Speed Settings / What Is Your Internet Speeds?

Jul 7, 2010

Right basically you can find the UK T mobile internet settings on the T mobile website. On the Speed Test app, the highest speeds I get are 1.8m/bs downloads and around 500kpbs upload. However, those were at off peak times at night etc (probably when nobody is using the net).Generally I get anything from 0.3 m/bs to 0.9 m/bs though. Lately I've been experiencing some inconsistent internet speeds and reconnection attempts so for I've gone back to the default settings. Tbh though I'm not sure if it makes much difference.

Android :: Why Phone Has No Signals?

Nov 7, 2009

I have a doubt I have been trying to solve since several days but still giving me troubles. Is there a way to detect when the GPS has lost signal (when I drive through a tunnel for example)? I tried to use te on Status Changed listener because I thought that the "temporarily unavailable" status was associated to a lack of signal but it doesn't seem to work well. I also tried to make a count with low precision locations rounds to trigger but it also fails.

Samsung Vibrant :: Lag - Not Getting 3g Signals

Jul 24, 2010

I had horrible lag ever since I got my vibrant from market, web, email everything. I even thhought about returning it, BUT I solved my problem(at least mine). I was at t-mobile vibrantforum and one post saying that factory reset will fix this problem. I gave it a try, and BANG! My phone is lag free. If you have lag problem, give it a try. I know its pain, reinstalling all the apps, but having lag all the time is much bigger pain. Also, I had trouble getting decent 3g signal, and I unchecked data roaming, and I am getting much better 3g signal too.

HTC Hero :: Stopped Detecting Wifi Signals?

Jul 21, 2010

My 3 month old hero ( 3 UK - 1.6 ) has just stopped detecting ANY wi-fi signals. I haven't rooted. I have removed the battery and removed then reinstalled the we-fi application. I toggle on/ off / on the wi-fi and the phone indicates this as being on. My next idea is to factory reset the phone and if that does not work to send it back to 3.

HTC Incredible :: Network Extender For Poor Signals

Apr 29, 2010

Does anybody have experience with network extenders? Would it help preserve battery life in poor signal areas?

Also, has anybody used Sprint's Airave network extender? I get terrible service here in college, but back home (Suburban Chicago) Sprint has great 3G and even WiMax. My 2-year with Sprint is up in October, and with the EVO 4g coming out (+WiMax back home) I was wondering if an Airave would help my reception woes during the school year.

HTC Hero :: Downloads Not Work On 3G (Only Start With HSDPA Signals)

May 13, 2010

I'm on the Orange network and am having problems with the 3G network. Various apps (Facebook, Market, Head to Head & Internet Browser) will only download data when there is a connection to the HSDPA signal.

The 3G signal has shown as 3 or 4 bars but will consistently not download any data. Once the HSDPA signal is found, then the download starts. This can be frustrating as there isn't always a HSDPA signal.

Android :: How To Receive Signals In An Activity To Kill Child Process?

Jun 2, 2010

My application calls Runtime.exec() to launch an executable in a separate process at start up time. I would like this child process to get killed when parent activity exits. Now I can use onDestroy() to handle regular cases, but not "Force quit", shutdowns from DDMS, or kill from the console since those don't run onDestroy(). The addShutdownHandler() does not seem to be invoked in these cases either. Is there any other hook or signal handler that informs my activity that it's about to get terminated? As an alternative is there a way to have the system automatically kill the child process when the parent die?

HTC Droid Eris :: Phone Dropping Calls / Low Signals Indoor

Nov 20, 2009

I had Verizon about 2 years ago before I switched to AT&T for the iPhone. I can't remember ever having issues with dropped calls before, and that's what made me come back to Verizon from AT&T. However, since I'm back I'm having all kinds of trouble with dropped calls. I'm dropping 1-2 calls a day. Also, I find I'm rarely seeing more than 1-2 bars of service, especially indoors. What gives? I know Verizon has the best coverage in my area, so is it the phone, or just my phone?

Samsung Galaxy S :: WiFi Signals Weak And Drops Frequently

Aug 27, 2010

I have a lot of issues with my device. It hangs frequently and the WiFi signal is weak and drops after a few minutes no matter what. I have the latest firmware so that isn't the problem. Many apps seem to run in the background even though I didn't start them and when I exit them the right way with the back button they're still running. What to do? I like the phone but it doesn't seem very stable so far.

Is there a way to allow my HTC Desire to connect to the internet via USB using the connection my PC has to the internet (i.e. using it as a gateway)? I know that you can use the phone to allow the PC to connect to the web - but is the opposite possible as well?
