HTC Desire :: Privacy -tab Is Missing

Sep 16, 2010

I just found out, that the "Privacy" -tab (home-menu-settings-privacy?) is missing ?

I gave the "factory defaults" reset in two ways, but it didn't help.
(home-menu-settings-sd&phone storage-factory data reset and pressing vol-power etc)

How could I get the backup data from the SD, while the bloody tab has gone somewhere...

It seems, that backup-directory still remains with several *.arc -files.

The phone is HTC Desire; with sw-version 2.10.205.2

HTC Desire :: Privacy Issues With Market Apps

Oct 6, 2010

There was an article on the BBC website a few days ago about a study that was done that found applications on the Android Market were transmitting information back like phone numbers, IMEI numbers and SIM serial numbers when the permissions were only for location, camera and audio data. (Original article: BBC News - Google Android apps found to be sharing data )

It appears that Google's response was something along the lines that the apps give the user the choice to continue with the install and it is up to the user to only install apps they trust. I for one think that I am a bit careful in what I choose to download (ie: why would an app for wallpapers want access to my contacts? etc) but how can you really know for sure it is only getting the info it says it wants and where are the boundries?

I don't know enough about programming and the like but was just wondering with the new Sense and other apps where you can remotely wipe your phone if stolen and other such things, if other companies (or even a kid in his bedroom who write a simple app game and gets access to your phone's details) have this info (IMEI number etc), how do you protect yourself? Am I just being overly paranoid? On the other hand, I don't want to have a phone and *not* download any apps!

Is there someplace that can explain what permissions would give me a definite "no" for certain types of apps? Something like "a game should never want access to x, y, z." Although this probably wouldn't help if the app was taking more info than it needs anyway from the particular 'permission'.

I had a quick browse of the actual research paper and a lot of it is just techno-jiggery to me but I do recognize some apps that I would have normally trusted (ie: Layars, Barcode Scanner, Astrid). I don't know if these particular apps took more info than they should have but it does make me wonder. (Research can be found from here: TaintDroid: Realtime Privacy Monitoring on Smartphones )

The option to allow the phone to backup automatically to SD card in Settings > Privacy have gone, does anyone know where the setting is now or even if a backup option is even available in froyo 2.2, because i can't find it anywhere even after a factory reset.

HTC Desire :: Power Button To End Call Is Missing From My Desire

Nov 10, 2010

I've been scouring the web a solution to this but can't seem to find it anywhere. I know it's possible to end a phone call on the Desire by pressing the power button after enabling it in settings. But when I go to Settings/Accessibility I get a pop-up message saying, 'No accessibility related application found. You can download a screen reader for your device from Android Market. Click OK to install the screen reader.'If I press 'Cancel' I'm in the accessibility settings with a single grayed-out 'Accessibility' option. But no other options are available.

HTC Desire :: Voice Actions - Some Commands Missing

Aug 26, 2010

HTC Desire, Android 2.2, new Google Voice Search

Several commands - 'send text to', 'send mail to', 'note to self' and 'go to' - are missing. They are not parsed, and they do not appear in the Help list when voice search is launched.

Is this because I don't use the standard HTC message, mail and browser apps, by any chance? (But they are still on the phone, of course.)

I noticed that if I just speak a web search, it launches the HTC browser, whereas Dolphin is my dafault browser.

HTC Desire :: Missing Touch Input Settings

Jul 17, 2010

I just purchased this awesome phone a few days ago, and while searching the forums on how to disable the word prediction, alot of people suggest to go to the Touch Input settings in the phone, but whenever I go to Settings -> Language & Keyboard, the only choice I have is to Select Locale, which in turn gives me a list of the locale, so I choose the Locale then it just returns me to the Language & Keyboard settings screen which only has the Select locale option. So I can't find the Touch input settings to try and disable the word prediction.

Android :: Missing Memory For Apps On HTC Desire

I had 18mb internal memory free for apps and after installing an epub reader i kept getting the message running low on memory.I uninstalled it and did a reboot and now i have 70mb free and all the existing apps are running fine.Somehow i have managed to free up a huge amount of lost space which I assume was being taken up by apps not uninstalling correctly.Either way i'm happy until froyo comes out.Just wish I knew where the memory keeps disappearing to over time.

Android :: Replacement HTC Desire / App Marketplace Missing

Sep 19, 2010

I'm new to the forum as I'm trying to help out my girlfriend who is being driven nuts by Orange.She had various problems with her HTC Desire, which led to them sending her a replacement handset. The user interface on the handset is a little different, which I assume is down to a different firmware version.The problem is that the App Marketplace is nowhere to be seen! She has called Orange several times but they haven't been able to help. They did send a text to perform some sort of update but nothing changed.Any ideas on how to find or activate the App Marketplace?
