KitKat 4.4 :: Reverse Phone Lookup On 4.4.2 Not Working - S4?

Mar 23, 2014

I have an unrooted S4 on ATT. I bought it 4.2.2, but I was given the 4.4.2 upgrade a few weeks ago. It's my understanding that KitKat devices will have a reverse phone lookup automatically built into the phone, displaying the name of any business that has that number listed on Google Places/Local.

It doesn't seem to work on my phone. Is this feature for KitKat devices moving forward where 4.4 is native to the phone, or are any devices on that version able to use that feature?

I can't seem to enable or or get it to work...I did some shopping yesterday and had customer services at a few stores call my phone just to see if it worked, but alas it did not. I need to do a factory reset because "old data and new data do not mix" but I have serious trepidations about doing the factory reset because I am skeptical it would change anything. The update changed enough on my phone, I find it hard to believe that some features would work, and others wouldn't.

Someone else in the aforementioned thread said they have the Google edition and enabled "Caller ID by Google". However, Under Call Settings>Additional Settings>CallerID> there are 3 options, each with a radio button: Network Default, Hide Number, Show Number. Currently Network Default is enabled, but no mention of Google.

General :: 3G Not Working After Using Reverse Tethering?

Jun 27, 2013

Today I used the Reverse Tethering tool from here and it worked fine, but to my surpries after that my 3g connection is not working. I switch it on and nothing happens. My APN configuration is correct (the same I had before).. these are the logs I am getting when I switch on the 3g:

Code:

Android :: Lookup Corresponding Contact To A Phone Number?

Jul 6, 2009

What I'm trying to do, is to get the corresponding contact to a phone number. It works perfect if the number is stored in the contacts in the following format: +<country code><area code><number> But not all numbers are stored this way. Most are without the country code or with "00" instead of "+". Do I have to parse the number by myself and set up a corresponding WHERE clause for the query, or is there anything I can't find in the internet to get this one done by the framework?

Android :: Lookup Contact Name Of Existing Phone Number

Nov 14, 2010

I'm using a Android Wildfire and I used the following code to lookup the contact name of an existing phone number.

private String getContactNameFromNumber(String number) { String[] projection = new String[] { Contacts.Phones.DISPLAY_NAME, Contacts.Phones.NUMBER };
Uri contactUri = Uri.withAppendedPath(Contacts.Phones.CONTENT_FILTER_URL, Uri.encode(number));
Log.d(TAG, contactUri.toString());
// query time
Cursor c = context.getContentResolver().query(contactUri, projection, null, null, null);
// if the query returns 1 or more results
// return the first result
if (c.moveToFirst()) {
String name = c.getString(c.getColumnIndex(Contacts.Phones.DISPLAY_NAME));
Log.d(TAG, name);
return name;
}

// return null if no match was found return null;
}

I am unable to resolve the contact name. The logcat output shows the following
11-14 13:45:35.879: DEBUG/Test(3342): content://contacts/phones/filter/%2B919773653345

KitKat 4.4 :: HTC One - Voice Input Not Working?

Mar 24, 2014

The voice input on my HTC One keyboard stopped working. On the default keyboard, the microphone key is still there but when I tap and hold it, it doesn't do anything. I tried other keyboards like Google Keyboard and TouchPal X but they don't seem to work. Google Search is enabled and is fully functional.

This is a screenshot for the TouchPal X keyboard. The stock keyboard doesn't have any messages, it just does nothing.

KitKat 4.4 :: Touch Screen Only Working When Touched Twice?

Mar 11, 2014

This may be an Android 4.4 or Nexus 4 problem, but I suspect the former. I encrypted the device (using the in-built encryption stuff) and have found that now the touchscreen will only register if another part of it is touched. For example, when entering my PIN once I get into the OS itself, I have to hold down a finger somewhere else on the screen (usually having to move it between some of the later numbers).

When it comes to multi-touch features (zooming etc.), these work fine but still require another finger held down somewhere to work.

This is definitely a software problem as the touchscreen works fine when putting in the password to decrypt storage.

Is this supposed to happen - part of the encryption process - or is this a bug?

KitKat 4.4 :: Google Apps Not Working Over WiFi

Mar 28, 2014

I recently swapped my iPhone 3GS for a Moto G and immediately upgraded it to KitKat. Since then I've been facing a variety of problems. Firstly, my camera would intermittently stop working and give the 'Camera Error' message. This was subsequently fixed by Moto when they released an update.

But another problem has been everpresent right from the start. Over my home WiFi, a number of apps requiring Google Sign in fail to work! These are :

1. Play Store
2. Facebook
3. YouTube
4. Google Search (Bing search works just fine!)

These work just fine when i switch off my WiFi and turn to 3G.

I have done a lot of research and tried a number of supposed fixes that worked for other people. They include :

1. Checking the Date & Time on my device
2. Switching to Airplane mode and back
3. Deleting my Google Account & Signing in again
4. Clearing cache, force stop etc

None of these seem to work. But at times, all of a sudden they start working. But it's completely random cause if I try the next day or something, they revert back to their non-functional state.

My WiFi at home runs on Google DNS servers. I can access these websites through my laptop.

KitKat 4.4 :: Nexus 5 - Widgets Stop Working

Dec 18, 2013

My Nexus 5 has been great but many of the widgets freeze regularly especially any with a clock or weather. I've did re-installs on them and it continues to happen. The clock and/or weather will update for a while and then after a few hours will freeze in time. I have everything stock still but did try a few custom launchers including nova & apex to see if it occurred with them as well and it did so I went back to stock. I did a hard reset and they began working for a few days then back to the same issue today. I've tried everything I can think of. The problem is consistent and with every widget no matter the developer. Those for sure affected are HD Widgets, Beautiful Widgets, PolyClock (a world clock), and RetroClock. I'm assuming this is a kitkat compatibility issue but do not know for sure.

I also have a Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 10. The 7 hasn't been affected at all but the 10 has it intermittently. All 3 devices have updated to 4.4.2

This is very annoying as widgets are one of the primary thing that sets Android apart from iOS for me.

General :: MyBackup Pro SMS Backup Not Working In Kitkat?

Feb 27, 2014

I use MyBackup Pro to backup my sms ..and some not so important apps that I rather restore than install them again. But I noticed that I can not restore SMS when I backing up SMS from CM10.2 and then flashing CM11 rom or any other kitkat roms. The hangout app or if I install the aosp stock sms app remains empty with no restored text messages

I can not make a backup with a kitkat rom and get it to restore. The app says successfull but the texting app remains empty..

I have never gotten Titanium to work to restore text messages either but that was way back with my HTC Desire..

Any alternative apps that works if MyBackup Pro does not do the trick?

General :: Galaxy Note 3 / 4.4 Kitkat - Choose File Not Working (in Browser)

Feb 18, 2014

In almost all browsers (except chrome) I can't use file browsers. For example, if I wanted to attach a picture to this post I can't. I can click manage attachments, but when I choose "choose fie", nothing opens.

It used to work, so I think it's something to do with 4.4?

I have a galaxy note 3, 4.4 kitkat

Omega rom (which has always worked, but hasn't since 4.4, even on stock rom)

Is it because it's changed to emulated0?

Android :: GPS Lookup And User Preference

Aug 6, 2010

I'm starting to dip my toes into LocationManager. I've created a service which tracks GPS location (interval is more than 60000ms) and updates my application with user location so they can find stuff nearby. As I understand it, users can go into their preferences and disable GPS for a particular application. I would essentially like to offer my users two modes.
1) GPS. 2) If GPS can not pull, device does not have a GPS chip, or GPS is turned off for my app, I would like to allow them to type in their zip code (or maybe switch to cell tower lookup).

The bold text is what I'm interested in. How can I tell if the device does not have GPS? How can I tell if the user has disabled GPS for my application?
Side question: My service gets launched from my 2nd Activity. I call stopService in the onDestroy method of this Activity. If I back up to my 1st Activity and the 2nd Activity is destroyed, I still notice the GPS icon on my phone running. Is stopping the service sufficient? Or do I need to stop the LocationManager in the onDestroy of the service?

Android :: Managing Contacts With Lookup Key

Sep 20, 2010

I'm currently writing a application that allows to save drafts (using android version >= 2.0). Each draft is connected to a contact via the ContactsContract.Contacts.LOOKUP_KEY. My problem is that if I change the name of my contact the lookup key changes also. Is that the way this works?

So for what do I need a lookup key? I thought that the lookup key does never change and now it changes anyway. I'm confused about that behavior. Can someone explain to me how to link permanently to a contact? Should I use IDs instead of the lookup key?
