Nexus :: Trick N1 Into Thinking Its On WiF Evev Its On 3g?

Apr 10, 2010

On my old iPhone 3gs, once jailbroken you could install an app called VOIPover3g and trick your phone into thinking it was on wifi even if you were only on 3g so you could overcome the restrictions on certain apps like skype (only lets you make calls over wifi) and youtube (better video quality on wifi)

Well, Vonage just came out with a great app for free domestic calls with GREAT call quality, but it only works over WiFi.

How can we trick the N1 into thinking its on WiFi even if its on 3g?

Android :: Nokia N900 / Thinking Of Going Back

Feb 2, 2010

I have a Nokia N900 - it's great and so powerful but I must admit I like something that is smooth and easy to use yet still hackable so I think I want to go back to an Android device.I know a few threads ask for advice etc and this one is no different!I want the best of both worlds but would prefer a hardware keyboard,when I say best of both worlds,I want a fast processor and at least as important a device with loads of ram and of course version 2.something of Android.I know my only option currently is the Nexus One (but no hardware keyboard) so I was wondering if there is anything up and coming (or if I should compromise my requirements list)

HTC EVO 4G :: Thinking Of Rooting / Difference Between Wireless Tether And Hotspot?

Nov 9, 2010

I mainly love my Evo just the way it is, with only 1 drawback. I hate having to reconnect each time i unplug my phn from my laptop at work using easytether or pdanet. So like many others, i want wireless tethering w/o a $30 monthly fee. I've been reading up on root posts (mainly unrevoked), and have noticed it mentioned that some ROM's have a "wireless tether" or "hotspot" built in. What's the difference in the two, arent they the same? I see "Wireless Tether" in the market for root users, isn't that the same as the "hotspot" feature or am i missing something? It'd be pretty nifty to utilize my phn as a hotspot for 2-3 others in my office to connect to when needed as well.I don't really care to flash a custom ROM, as i'm content in the configuration i already have, but i would like to get rid of the bloatware and have it "frozen" so to speak. Does this have any improvement on battery life? I typically get about 15+/- hrs a day as is before i have to charge back up, and don't want to chance ruining that by trying a custom kernel/ROM that may/may not tweak the battery life. I've read too many mixed reviews to feel it's justified, so i mainly want to kill off "zone", "stocks", "navigation", "people", etc etc that run without me needing it. Does it help battery life to only freeze the bloatware with Titanium Backup and then just redo my current launcher pro screens/settings?

Motorola Droid :: Another 'Thinking Of Buying Droid' Thread

Jan 22, 2010

i'm sure this has been asked before but, with 2.01 and 2.1 things may have changed and as these are/have *just* come out I felt it was worth asking:I'm looking at either a driod or HD2. Now I really like the HD2 BUT it has the usual HTC BS issues with a buggy frontend and generaly, like all HTC stuff, being excellent in principle but rushed out and becomes major fail. So, this brings me to a Milestone (i'm in the UK).I'm very tempted by this as its similar in form factor to my current Acer M900 - large screen and slide keyboard. But before I do, i'm a little confused by some stuff and was hoping you guys can help me please?

- I'm looking at a Milestone being a UK person, can I use ROM's for a Droid and still retain the multi-touch feature?

- I have read over the past few days that some Droids can auto-reboot. Does this also affect Milestones and have the new 2.01 updates fixed it? Do we know if the 2.1 will defo fix?

- I am a hardcore Office user on my WinMobs, can I get full office functionality on the Droid? I need full outlook sync including tasks. I need to be able to edit Excel and Word and at least look at PowerPoint presentations.

- I also need OneNote or something VERY similar on Android that will sync to my PC as well, can this be done

- I have read that the keyboard can be akward, sadly I have no idea where to try one in the UK so, honestly, is it useable or too cramped

- Battery life - i'd need full push email for 7am to 10pm, can the phone battery handle this

- The HTC HD2 has the usual issue where when locked it will require a reboot to "wake it up" again, does anything like this happen with the Milestone? Its highly embarrasing and VERY frustrating to go to take notes in a meeting only to find I need to reboot before I can....

I know you can only speak from YOUR experience and EVERYONE has a DIFERENT experience, so please, answer from your point of view.Mods, why can't you send a confirmation email to my private address? I have no blocking or junk filters in place ( email service - not too bothered about people knowing it)it appears the forum numbering doesn't work so changed them to "-"

HTC EVO 4G :: Wet Screen And Rice Trick

Jul 15, 2010

So I got my phone wet and there are some water spots inside the screen. I quickly pulled the battery out and dried the phone with a towel+shaking the hell out of it. I then got a container and poured white rice into it and threw my phone and submerged it in the rice. A day had passed and I opened the lid and took out my phone to see how it was doing. Well the water spots are still there but I can see that it's drying up, that's the good news. The bad news is that the rice went inside the small holes where the battery cover locks into the phone. Now every time I shake it, I hear the rice rattling inside my phone. Just a heads up if you ever do the rice drying trick. Either leave the battery cover on or cover up the holes with tape or something.

Many have told me that you have to manually update this by going into -> Menu > Settings > System Updates > Update PRL. Let me know how it works out for you.

HTC Incredible :: Root Trick - Get Into ADB Three Times

Jun 22, 2010

I figure at this point everyone that hasn't got root yet need as many tips as possible and will try just about anything, so here is another tip. I've got into ADB 3 times (initial root, remove apps & install WirelessN), and each of them was on my first try after rebooting my computer. I'm using the pny sd card(for me it's the 4gb class 4 but 2gb works great as well), which seems to have been by far the most successful card, also I have SDK installed as my driver. The method I used was pretty standard, no clicking in & out the sd card, I just left it in the whole time, I didn't even use loop.bat. I know it's annoying to restart your computer after each attempt, but it worked for me.

HTC Incredible :: Trick Application - Android 2.2

Aug 10, 2010

XiiaLive has blocked all AAC+ streams from working on android 2.2 until the whole AAC+ debacle is resolved. I did adrynalyne's new audio fix so I am willing to bet that XiiaLive will now work with the AAC+ streams if they weren't blocked altogether. So can I somehow trick XiiaLive into thinking i am running 2.1 and get my AAC+ streams back?

HTC EVO 4G :: Trick Way To Improve Battery Life

Jun 18, 2010

OK, I found a simple trick that has dramatically improved my battery life. Up until yesterday, I thought my battery life was pretty poor. About 4-5 hours of heavy usage, and maybe 8-12 hours of moderate to light use. I had tried all the tricks of turning off radios, turning off updates to services, etc. None seemed to make a huge difference.

Yesterday at work, I did what was becoming my normal practice of recharging before leaving so I would have enough battery to last through the evening. But instead of recharging by plugging into an AC outlet, I recharged via USB to my work computer. When I went to bed last night 9 hours after the USB recharge, I still had 70% battery life left after light to moderate use in the evening. This was by far the best performance I've seen.......

HTC EVO 4G :: Trick To Listen To Voicemails Even Faster

Jun 11, 2010

When using Sprint visual voicemail and listening to a voice mail just slide your finger left to right or vice versa to the next screen and it will automatically play the next message continuously. I found this very useful in only listening to snippets of messages and much faster than hitting back and than tapping on a message.

HTC Droid Eris :: Fun Trick - Screen Fades In And Out

Dec 11, 2009

If you lock the phone by pressing end, the screen goes blank instantly. If you press the end button to bring up the lock screen (do not unlock), and then quickly double click the end button, the screen fades in and out. Phone is still locked, so no real use. Discovered this in a meeting today. I forget what the meeting was about and before someone else says it, yes, this is completely pointless.

I'm a new Evo owner, and I�m trying to get my work email on my phone. I had a BB before and didn't have any problems. Is there something special you need to enter in to get this set up?

Motorola Droid X :: Awesome Keyboard Typing Trick

Jul 17, 2010

Sorry if this has already been said, but while I was typing on the keyboard I noticed something cool. If you type a text or sentence and you look back and notice that a word you tried to type got switched to a different word because of a missed key or just because of the predictive text, instead of moving the cursor back and erasing, you can just click on that word. This brings up the original suggestions along with what you actually typed even if you've moved past this word. Maybe the original Droid had this? I came from an HTC Droid Eris.

HTC Incredible :: Trick Fitting Verizon Gloss Silicone Case

May 3, 2010

Some of us have had issues with the volume and power buttons being depressed by the case just fitting a bit too tight causing unwanted changes in volume or turning the phone off by accident. Some have simply cut out the button areas completely but I have found a better answer. Simply make two slits one above the case molded buttons and one below. This allows for the phones buttons to slightly push away the case molded buttons for a perfect fit. See pictures below. The case buttons still work fine.

Motorola Droid :: Battery Trick - Complete Drainage And Charging

Nov 20, 2009

There seems to be lots of discussions on Battery life, so I did a test myself. I was getting about the same battery life as everybody else, about 6-7 hours with moderate usage. Which is what all the beta testers were getting pre release. I thought I would give something a try. First of all, when I picked up the phone it was about 75% charged. I charged it to 100%, and let it go down to about 30% that first day and then charged it. I followed this everyday for the first week, and was still getting the same battery life out of it. I never allowed the device to completely drain and shut off. Well I gave that a shot, and what did I find, My battery is lasting much longer, like doubled. So give this a try. I let the phone die, completely die so it shuts off. Then charge it 100% overnight. Worked for me, don't know if it will work for you, but give it a shot.
