General :: How To Prevent Some Applications To Connect To Internet

Jul 18, 2012

I am looking how to prevent an application to connect to internet either on wifi or on data network mode.

My problem is that some applications are connecting, in background, to internet and I would like to restrict it.

For example in windows, you have a firewall and you can allow or prevent each program to connect to internet.

Android :: App To Block Unwanted Callers AND Unwanted SMS

Apr 4, 2010

New to Android. I always used a app called Magicall on my WM device. I want to be able to block specific contacts, unknown number or anonymous numbers and also specific contacts for SMS. I can see I have the option to send a contact direct to voicemail but don't have the same facility for unknown/anonymous callers and nothing to block SMS. Any recommendations for an app that works with 2.1? (I'm using a HTC Desire)

Android :: Remove Attention Box While Activating Soft Key Board

Mar 11, 2010

I am developing android applications. currently I have customized the sample softkeyAndroid project to include amharic language (Ethiopian language). The keyboard works well. But when I try to activate it from the setting (Local & Text) option, it displays some warning message that says "This input method may be able to collect all the text you type, including personal data like password and credit card numbers. ....".

I think this text is include for security purpose. But users may not be interested to use the keyboard. So my question is How can I remove this warning message to make the keyboard available for users (without payment). or is there anything that I have to consider while developing the application?

HTC Desire :: ROM Closest To Stock With Unwanted Applications Removed?

Nov 28, 2010

I have a stock froyo 2.2 on my device with no o2 operator logo thanks to the debranding batch file on xda developers, it's also got root. This seems quite stable and hasn't displayed the random crashing that happens on almost any ROM that I've tried. What's the closest ROM to stock but with a lot of the unnecessary apps removed?

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.

HTC Desire :: Unwanted Facebook / Email Contacts In Message Recipient Auto-suggest

Aug 15, 2010

First of all I'd like to point out that I have posted this in the HTC Desire section because I'm not sure whether my problem is Android or HTC Sense related.I have linked my contacts to their facebook profiles so I can see thier pictures awesome.Except that whenever I compose a new text message and click on the people icon, I get a list of every single one of my facebook friends, and multiple entries for each - one for email, phone etc.Except obviously I only want to text one of the people in my contacts, but keep slecting someone's email address that they've listed on facebook, or the wrong person who shares the same first name. This is highly frustrating - random people appearing in my message recipients list is something I have never had to deal with before in my 10 years as a mobile phone user.

HTC Desire :: Prevent Screen From Going Into Sleep Mode

May 26, 2010

I want to use the Smart Alarm Clock (same as the Sleep Cycle alarm clock for iPhone), but my Desire goes into sleep mode automatically. Can only pick a time between 15 sec to 30 min. The Smart Alarm Clock doesn't work properly because it requires that the screen is on during the entire night. Is there an application or something else than can disable the sleep mode when I want it?

HTC Desire HD :: Best Protection To Prevent Screen Scratches?

Nov 10, 2010

I'm considering getting a screen protector, but I'm also wondering how much it'll affect sensitivity/responsiveness. If I do get something to protect my phone, what is the best material/brand/manufacturer to go with? Or perhaps just a leather case would be enough? That way the screen stays perfect and it's still protected when I'm not using it.

After all, I heard the screen quality is pretty good. It's glass, or am I thinking of a different phone? It might not be a "Gorilla" screen like the Samsung Galaxy, but I've heard it's pretty resilient. I think it should be ok with just a leather case, unless anyone here's already got some bad experiences with the screen?

General :: HTC Desire HD - Prevent Battery Check On Boot?

Apr 1, 2014

Yesterday I made some modifications to my old HTC Desire HD. I removed the battery and instead soldered a fixed power adapter to the phone (at + and - where the battery usually is). It worked well, I could reboot it, turn it off and on as usual. But then I desided to flash another ROM (an unofficial CM 4.4 port), and now the phone is shutting down as soon as it enters the launcher. It says I need to connect the charger.

I can successfully boot the phone if I start the phone with the charger plugged in (which probobly isn't healthy for the phone but whatever). Then I can unplug the charger with no problem.

So, i've tried deleting the batterystats.bin file, replaced it with an empty file with no r/w permissions at all, but it will still be replaced by the system at reboot.

How can i skip the battery check att boot, or how can i lock it to 100% forever?

HTC Desire :: Connect To Internet Through PC?

Jun 18, 2010

I'm new to my HTC Desire and Android in general, so please bear with me. At home, I have no Wi-Fi but my PC is connected to the web via ADSL. 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?

HTC Desire :: Need Gps Translators And Internet

Sep 10, 2010

I got my HTC desire to help me while traveling extensively overseas. I need the gps to get places and translators as well as the internet for booking stuff. On getting to Europe I can't find a prepaid sim that includes data. As my partner says all I have now is an expensive majong set. I can phone and text but what is the point of having translators if you can't use it overseas.

HTC Desire :: App To Turn Off The Internet?

Jun 7, 2010

I have an app that allows me to turn off/on my bluetooth and wifi with one click but can't seem to find one that turns off the GPRS data connection.

I've gone into turn off the Background data but i still get the arrow pointing away from the phone at the top under the "H" symbol showing that data is still being transmitted intermittently. I have set my facebook, email and weather etc to update manually.

the only way that i can stop the arrows under the H from flashing (i presume thats the gprs transfering data) is to have my wifi on then the "H" goes away. But I am trying to conserve battery so i would like to have wifi, bt and gprs off until i need it.

HTC Desire :: No Internet - No Signal ?

Jun 30, 2010

I recently bought a desire and I love it, the only problem I have with it is that sometimes I can be somewhere, like a train station I change at, and even though I have full signal my phone won't make/receive calls or receive/send messages? This only seems to happen when my internet disappears, I had it at a Stevie Wonder concert at the weekend as well, full signal but no internet which somehow prevented me doing the above?

HTC Desire :: Internet Conctivity Through PC

Jul 23, 2010

I recently migrated from HTC touch HD to HTC desire, in my previous phone which was Windows mobile 6.0 I could easily connect to my Internet connection on my PC and update whether & GPS info without ever subscribing to a data plan on my mobile. Unfortunately I was not able to do so on my HTC desire phone I was kind of wondering if anybody know how could I do this without utilizing WiFi or data plan on the phone by means of some application or some settings.

HTC Desire :: Internet Doesn't Work

Jul 10, 2010

Since a couple of days the internet on my Desire doesn't work anymore. (WIFI does) the weird thing is: When i have my phone in my pocket or on the table and my screen is off, it recieves gprs. But when i turn my screen on the gprs turns into 3g, then in HSPA and then it disappears. This takes about 5 seconds or less..
When i put my simcard in my old iphone 3g the internet works fine, so that means its my phone to blame and not the network
