Samsung Captivate :: Free Location Based WiFi Switch

Jul 24, 2010

For those of you trying to squeeze as much time out of the battery as possible, I came across this nifty program which I don't think has been mentioned yet: AppBrain: Y5 - Battery Saver - Android app on AppBrain Official: Y5 Battery Saver: Home. When you connect to a Wi-Fi network, it uses the GSM base tower identifier (CellID) to determine the location of the Wi-Fi network and stores it in memory. It does not use the GPS. I saved my home network earlier this afternoon and went out, Wi-Fi was turned off while I was out, then after I came home and started using my phone, I was connected again, so it seems to be working so far.

Samsung Captivate :: Connecting To Web Portal-based Wifi Network?

Nov 18, 2010

At my college we have this annoying web based login and my android phone doesn't like it. It connects easily but when I go to either browser or opera mobile it doesn't load the login page the browser still thinks it has no connection. Is there anyway to approach this in a better way or bypass the login or at least save it to automatically do it each time.I need a wifi connection! every building has it. annoying this is once you move to a different building the settings are changed(probably because of the routers) and I have to redo it. of course it never works

Nexus :: App That Disable Wifi/enable 3g Reception Based On Gps Location

Jan 20, 2010

Wouldn't it be cool if I could tell my phone to switch wifi on and switch 3g reception off when it senses that I am at work or home based on my gps coordinates and then reverse that when I'm on the road i.e. not at those coordinates I set. Is there an app that does this?

Samsung Epic 4G :: Good App For Location-based Reminders?

Sep 30, 2010

I had an app on my Pre called Geostrings that did location-based reminders, and it was really handy. I see a few out on the Android market, anyone have one they use that they could recommend? Ideally it would work with the GPS off and just use cell towers for location if necessary, since I tend to leave my GPS off unless I need it to conserve battery, and may forget to turn it on when I have an alarm enabled. I tried "Location Alarm", but it may require the GPS, because I got no alarm with it at all, then later realized I had the GPS off.

Samsung Captivate :: Making Switch To A Captivate

Jul 26, 2010

AT&T decided that it won't allow its users to have any unlimited data plans for smartphones after like june of this year. My unlimited plan is grandfathered in, and I would like to keep it that way. but if i go to the at&t store and buy a captivate like I want, they are going to make me change my contract from the unlimited I have now to either 200mb or 2gb per month when they activate the phone. Would anyone know a way to buy a captivate and get it working with my current service without getting screwed out of my unlimited data by at&t? Is it really as simple as buying one from another source and transferring my sim card to the captivate?

Samsung Captivate :: Captivate Free At WalMart

Jul 18, 2010

Unbelievable sale at WalMart right now. Free with no contract or 2 year renewal, $229 without a contract. Got mine ordered off contract and overnight delivery for additional $19. No tax, no activation free, and best of all, no need to deal with AT&T store people about dropping price from $500 or switching to a hobbled data plan. If you are more patient than me, they offer $9 for two day shipping or free shipping options as well.

Samsung Captivate :: Any Toggle Switch To Disable 3G?

Jul 25, 2010

I have an AT&T Captivate with a 200 MB data plan. I want to have an easy toggle switch to disable any data transfer that counts toward that 200 MB. So far I've only done mild browsing/email and navigation off wireless, yet I've already used 67 Mb in 4-5 days. Anybody else having similar experiences?

I've tried the APNDroid widget set to "Red", but when I disable Wifi, the 3G icon pops right up in the notification bar and 3G seems to work normally. I've also tried the JuiceDefender "Toggle Mobile Data" and tapped it to make it yellow "ON", and again the 3G pops up when I disable WiFi. Anybody having any luck disabling 3G? Also, it would be nice to still get push gmail, which seems like it wouldn't using much data.

Samsung Captivate : Way To Switch Upgrade To Another Line On A Family Plan?

Sep 13, 2010

Probably belongs in the AT&T section but that's basically what this is When I got my Captivate, I renewed my line on the family plan for 2 years. Question is, can I switch the renewed contract to another line on my family plan or the only way is to return the phone, cancel the renewal and resign for the 2 years on the second line?

Samsung Galaxy S :: Phone Not Correctly Switch Back To 3G After WiFi Connectivity

Jul 10, 2010

Very happy with the i9000 in the last few days of ownership, using launcher pro in place of stock but otherwise mostly unchanged. One issue we have is that after being at home overnight on WiFi, the phone doesn't automatically re enable 3g. To restore the mobile data you have to go into the network operator selection and re select Optus (our carrier here in Aus). Leaving it on auto doesn't help, and you have to manually choose it each time (ie: it "forgets" what I selected or something). Using apndroid to mangle the apn on/off doesn't help. Restarting the phone fixes it but obviously not ideal.

Have tried entering the code to change it to gsm only instead of the default wcdma/gsm auto with no benefit. When the mobile data is working, it happily switches between 2g and 3g, but will sometimes simply stop working as per the wifi overnight problem and I have to manually select the operator again. This happens very randomly and can go several days without drama, our only a few minutes. While this data won't connect, the phone capabilities aren't affected and you can make and receive calls fine. In fact if you dial a number it sometimes causes the data to re connect.

General :: Switch Profile Based On Lockscreen Pattern

Jul 14, 2013

My rooted device is shared. I already set-up multi-user profiles for each of us:

1-Family mode
2-My mode

How is possible to switch profile based on lockscreen pattern?? example: "pattern1" triggers My mode while entering "pattern2" triggers Family mode.

So I will have certain apps automatically blocked when in family mode (hides some applications, sms, calls, and/or maybe starts a blacklist?) But unlocked in My mode

Is there a way to do this? or is there an app/hack that can closely do some of it?I don't need exactly the multiuser feature. but at least a way to start an app or two (maybe a blacklist, lock gallery/other app) with the pattern2 of the lockscreen.

Samsung Captivate :: How To Free Up Space Without Deleting Applications?

Oct 4, 2010

Any ideas on how to free up space without deleting apps? I really like One Click Lag Fix, I don't wanna get rid of it just for space reasons. I was just looking using Root Explorer and there are some massive files in /data/fota. What are they? I have 3 files, fota.status, (Size 36) and fota_delta_dp1 and fota_delta_dp2 both size 62914560. That seems like a lot, I'm guessing it's measured in bytes so that'd be 60 megabytes or so, so 120 total. Are they safe to remove, seems like the results from the over-the-air update.

Samsung Captivate :: Location Not Clickable In Calendar Widget / Need Different App?

Jul 22, 2010

I am just using the stock calendar app that came with the Captivate. It syncs with google just fine, but the location addresses are not clickable to pull up the map. Very frustrating. I had tried out the EVO for 3 weeks before getting the Captivate, and the stock android calendar would let me pull it up via maps or use navigator which was awesome! Any ideas on what I can do to get the same feature? Maybe I need a different calendar app. Any recommendations?

HTC Incredible :: Location Based Services

May 24, 2010

I know there are many posts about location based widgets not working correctly (and I have read lots of them). Some people say they do and others say they don't work right. on my DI I can not get the Sense Weather/Clock to follow where I am currently (GPS on or off). Is it supposed to?? It would seem to me that it should be able to get a rough area based on what cell towers I'm hitting, but that doesn't work for anything. Every weather based widget I've tried works solely off GPS and when I am in my building at work there is no connecting to the GPS Sats. So before I go off on a tangent I'll ask my question(s). Should non-GPS location services work? Or does everything need GPS on and connected? I only have about a week left and I want to make sure that my phone is working correctly before my 30 days are up. This is the only frustrating thing I have found with the phone so far.

Android :: Location Based Reminders App?

Jul 27, 2010

Is there a location based reminder app? For example, let's say I need something from the store. I would like an app that would remind you to go to the store when you are near one. It would be cool if you could select specific locations or use generic locations (based on what is in Google Maps maybe). Hopefully it uses the location service without using satellite GPS.
