Nexus :: Got A Mysterious MMS Messages / Security Hole?

May 27, 2010

I got a mysterious MMS mesg this morning from an iphone-having acquaintance. I rarely talk to this person, except thru FB. the mesg came in at 4-5 am, was not titled and had an attachment. Not thinking anything of it, I opened the attachment. Nothing happened, and the notification for the MMS, and the MMS itself disappeared. Vanished. no where.I messaged the friend about it and she said that she has no record of sending me a mesg at all. My battery seems to be draining really quickly. I had it on the charger all day at work, and went to lunch and noticed that I'm at 30% and dropping really quickly since being off the charger.does froyo have a security hole? is there a virus out there? anyone else experience something like this? should I start to be worried.

HTC Desire :: Spam Text Messages Received Due To Lax In Security?

Nov 4, 2010

I have had the same mobile number for about 10 years and only ever had one problem with spam text messages, that was 7 years ago. However, since moving onto Android I have received a message every few weeks. Usually they are about wiping debts or accident law suits and come from standard mobile numbers, not premium ones. Is this just a coincidence or have I been lax in some form of personal security with apps or 3G Internet?

Nexus :: 2.2.1 Mail Asks Suspect Security Settings For Exchange

Sep 27, 2010

I use nexus one, otherwise known as a google phone, and just got the 2.2.1 update. Upon updating I got a request for a security update for the Email app. It wants to be able to:

1. Erase all data (perform a factory reset, deleting all of your data without any confirmation)
2. Limit password (reset the types of passwords you are allowed to use)
3. Watch login attempts (monitor failed attempts to login to the device, to perform some action)
4. Force Lock (control when the device locks, requiring you re-enter its password)

Call me paranoid, but this, especially no.1 seems suspect. Why would an email client need this extreme set of privileges? My spidey sense is pinging louder than a gaydar next to a drag queen. Can anyone confirm if this is a legit update or if I just downloaded a trojan horse of some sort?

General :: Connect To Nexus 10 Using ADB - No Security Popup / Device Unauthorized

May 23, 2014

I have a brand new windows 7 computer, I have installed the latest android SDK, I want to connect to my Nexus 10 using adb.

(device has windows drivers from SDK; "Android Composite ADB Interface". adb version 1.0.31)

when I do adb devices, it does see my device but it says my device is unauthorised.

It has never displayed the security popup.

I am convinced that the security pop up would make this work, but i cannot get it to show, so that it does whatever magic it does.

I have tried plugging and unplugging the usb cable,
I have tried turning USB debugging on and off.
I have changed the USB connection from Camera, to Media, back to Camera.

I can see the adbkey file under $HOME/.android in windows

The android directory /data/misc/adb/ is empty

I have root.

How can I force the security popup to display? Or how can I frig this so I can get it working?

What does the secuirty popup do anyway? probably just copy the adbkey file from windows into the android /misc/adb/ directory right? Can I do it by hand?

Slightly unrelated question, is it true that everything works first time, everytime on IOS?

Motorola Droid :: Voice Muffled / In Hole?

Jul 1, 2010

I have had my Moto Droid for around three weeks and everybody I talk to says it sounds like my voice is muffled or in a hole. Even if I hold the speaker directly in front of my mouth it sounds the same way. Is this the way you sound on a droid or is there something I can do to clear it up.

HTC Hero :: Mysterious IM Application

Oct 9, 2009

I'm a bit curious about this.. if i go into Settings > Apllications > Manage applications in the list that is displayed there in one just called "IM" which has an icon of a red and a blue speech bubble leading me to belive that it's some sort of instant messanger application. But it doesn't display at all in the list of applications so there is no way of launching it.

Now I know there are a whole range of system apps in the manage list but does anyone know what this "IM" is and is it a usable IM client?

Android :: Applications Market Very Mysterious And Secretive

Aug 19, 2010

Around the end of December or the first of January I will be getting a new Smart-Phone. In the past I've had some Nokia's, Palm's and some Blackberry's. To date, my favorite has been the Blackberrys, but being up for trying anything new/better I've been checking out the Android market. I've noticed what would appear to be some very nice phones that have the potential to meet my needs nicely. However, I've have also noticed one very odd situation in the Android market. The Android App Market appears to be very mysterious and secretive. All ads for Android devices tout the thousands of apps available, but no where are you able to see the full selection, unless you own an Android Device.

I find this very odd indeed. Places like Handango, Crackberry and others allow you to check out apps for just about any device. Additionally they have user reviews that give you some idea as to the quality of the app as well as it's price, if any. Such information provides a potential customer the ability to confirm that a particular device will meet his/her needs prior to making the investment. I would have thought that Google would be happy to provide a similar environment for potential Android buyers, but such is not the case. Kinda makes one wonder just how many apps there really are and how good they are.

Imagine, if you would, going into a diner and ordering a meal. You have no idea what's on the menu, how much it will cost or what the service will be like, but once you enter you will be obligated to pay for it. How long do you think that diner would stay in business? I haven't made up my mind yet, but in as much as I'm not very big on taking unnecessary risks and I'm not a very trusting person, it doesn't look good for Android. Can anyone explain why there's so much secrecy behind the app market and why they don't want potential buyers to see what's there before they make a decision to buy an Android phone?

Nexus :: Messages Wont Send

Mar 2, 2010

I have recurring problem where my phone will appear to have service (x>2 bars) but when I try to send a text message and even call it will give me an alert saying the text message never send or the call will automatically end before connecting. No matter how many times I resend the message, it will not send unless either wait about an hour or restart my phone. I'm pretty sure it's not the phone, however, because my last phone, a Motorola RIZR, did the same thing (I kept my same T-mobile plan). I'm wondering if it's just a network problem or something else?

Nexus :: Ring Multiple Times For Text Messages

May 21, 2010

I'm new to Android as I just got the Nexus One. On my previous flipphone, when I get a text message, it will make the ringtone sound a 4 or 5 times. My question is how to set android to do multiple rings for texts instead of once? Also, is there a way to make it sound the notification ringtone for texts only, and not for app alerts, like the weather channel widget?

Nexus :: Larger Font Size For Email Messages?

Mar 16, 2010

Does the Nexus One allow larger font sizes for email for old, tired eyes? With the move to Verizon I am considering trying one out. I already have three phones on Verizon so adding a fourth would be easy enough. I actually had the T-Mobile version but radio performance was horrid (no signal in places where an unlocked iPhone was able to make calls) and I'm hoping that on the Verizon network the radio issues will be solved. I don't remember having trouble with email, but I had the phone for such a short time (under a day) I can't remember if I had email issues.

Nexus :: Replacement N1 Gmail Messages Automatically Marked As Read

Mar 2, 2010

I just received a replacement N1 because my original unit accumulated quite a bit of dust under the screen. Anyway, ever since I transitioned to the replacement unit I've been noticing some strange behavior in my Gmail accounts, namely the fact that all my new email messages are being automatically marked as read. It doesn't happen immediately as best as I can tell, but probably in the neighborhood of 30-60 minutes after they are received.Has anyone else ever come across this issue and can advise me of a solution?

Nexus :: N1 Absolutely Refuses To Send Text Messages To Certain Short Codes

Mar 14, 2010

On my old phone (unlocked iPhone),I subscribed to news and weather updates via SMS from a local radio station. The shortcode is 411923.Then I got Nexus One (same T-Mobile service and SIM) and still receive the messages from them. Well, one day, there was a big news day (chile earthquake?) and I was getting annoyed by them, so I was gonna reply with "STOP" like you do with most short codes.The Nexus absolutely refuses to even attempt to send this number a text. It won't even try. It immediately shows the "message failed <!>" notification and sound.I can send to various other shortcodes, but this and a few others, the Nexus won't try.I am sure I could get another T-Mobile phone and swap SIMs to do it from that phone.I am just wondering what is the problem?

Motorola Droid :: Getting Messages After Messages Of Force Closing - NOTHING Works

Dec 28, 2009

I tried the steps above, and it didn't work. I then compared it to the steps on the other link, and there it says to do mtdblock4, not mtdblock3

So I typed mtdblock4 instead, and I rebooted from the adb shell in the computer.

The boot animation went fine, and then when I got to my homescreen, I freaked out!

It is all black. Instead of the unlock button, there is a green button with an airplane symbol on it. It says NO SERVICE.

The bar IS transparent, but it has these weird symbols on it, not the normal ones.

AND, to make it worse, EVERYTHING is force closing. I'm getting messages after messages of force closing. NOTHING works.

I can't even pull down the notification bar to get mount my sdcard in order to delete the .apk file from there. All these stupid force close messages keep propping up.

Also, it says that the date is Wednesday, December 31 (the 31 is a thursday, though), and it has a time of 6 hours from now.


I am actually still in debugging mode, and I still have access to adb shell.


(Why oh why did I have to root my beautiful Droid! I think I killed it!)

HTC EVO 4G :: Best Security Options

Jul 22, 2010

Just curious, are there any methods or apps that add security to your phone? Like locating a stolen phone, or wiping memory when stolen, etc.One idea, if the phone is lost or stolen: I use Locale. I could set a condition that triggers the "open shortcut" situation, and turns ON Google Latitude. The condition could be a calendar event. When I realize that the phone is lost or stolen, I could set a G-cal event that starts immediately, so when the phone syncs the calendar to Google, it triggers the Locale condition/situation.

-If you don't use Locale, you are probably really confused after reading that. That's ok.

-Google Latitude basically shows you and your friends on a G-map. That way, when it gets stolen, I could go to Latitude on my comp and find my stolen phone. It's bundled with Google Maps (I think).

I want to hear what you guys use for security on your phones. Whether it's a simple app that lets you find it around the house (Wheres My Droid), or something more complex, like the idea above.
