Samsung Galaxy S :: Phone Lacking Characters From Key Map

Jul 28, 2010

This one mostly goes out to my fellow Swedish forum dwellers but if anyone else has a solution please chime in. My brother just got himself a Galaxy S, partly on my recommendation. He bought it from a Swedish (we presume) web shop but he seems to be lacking Swedish characters from they key map. He is not using Swype but the Samsung keyboard, he changed the phones language layout to Swedish but that wasn't enough. If you check the keyboard language, its set to "automatic" but he cannot - apart from me, set it to Swedish. This seems very strange, is it an import phone? And if so - can he add the Swedish language somehow?

General :: Samsung Galaxy S2 Unable To Text More Than 80 Characters?

Nov 8, 2013

Last year when I was living in South Korea I bought a Samsung Galaxy S2 and I had no problems with it but since i've been back in the UK every time I text it converts my message into a MMS even though i'm only sending about 80 characters. It's really annoying and means I can only send a few words on each text hah

I've read up online and ive tried downloading some SMS apps such as handcent etc but nothing is working I can't afford to buy a new phone currently, desperately trying to fix this.

General :: Samsung Galaxy Nexus Won't Send Special Characters Anymore

Jul 28, 2013

Samsung Galaxy Nexus. I could send special characters (i.e: �, �, �, �, �, ect) in text messages. Then, it wouldn't anymore. I believe my phone updated to Jelly Bean before it stopped, so it may be connected to that. When I try to send a message with any type of special character in it, the message simply won't send. No matter if I use the messenger than came on the phone, or the one I installed (Handcent). I still get the message just not sending. It'll send once I take the characters out of the message, though. I can normally receive messages containing special characters, but they sometimes it shows up as squares.

Mostly, I want to know if I can fix it. I understand that it may be the update, which I'll have to wait out. Or that it could be the phone itself, which in that case I'd just have to wait till I can upgrade again. It's just very annoying not being able to send accents or special characters. Especially to my Spanish only speaking friends.

Samsung Captivate :: Messages - After 100 Characters Cuts It Off - Phone Doesnt Connect To Computer

Aug 1, 2010

So im looking at my messages and i get a long one. After like 100 characters or something it cuts it off and replaces it with ... And then i have to click on it to see the rest. Is there any way to take this off in the settings?

And my second question, my phone doesnt connect to my computer right. I plugged it in, it said it didnt have the right software or something, so i went and downloaded the the Vista 64 bit thing thats stickied on here. I plug it in, and the "you have the wrong software" thing was gone, but nothing else happpened. The screen says its connected and it vibrates and i hear the noise thru the computer, so what am i doing wrong. I read somewhere that you pull down the little bar at the top and hit dock or something like that. I cant do that. If i can pull it down theres no buttons to hit. Can someone walk me thru this process? FIXED

Samsung Fascinate : Homescreen Setups - Severely Lacking In Creativity

Nov 3, 2010

I'm just curious how you have the homescreen (and all the other screens) setup? I'm severely lacking in creativity, and I just noticed all of my screens are just random messes of crap that looks bad and could probably be a lot more streamlined. If anyone would be willing to post up SS of their screens.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Samsung Galaxy-S Phone Number Incorrectly Shown In System Info

Nov 5, 2010

When connecting my Galaxy-S to the Samsung Kies software, my telephone shows up with an incorrect telephone number. I did change the sim-card (and subsequent number) since first using it, but I never logged intio Kies with the old sim-card.The phone is rooted.How do I get Kies (or my Samsung phone) to show my current telephone number?In the phone properties (Menu, Settings, About, Status) the same wrong number is shown.When calling, the receiver sees the correct telephone number. So the issue is not operator related but telephone related.

Samsung Moment :: Strange Characters Received In Text Messages

Dec 1, 2010

So my girlfriend is having an issue with her phone. I don't see it being an issue with mine but it might be something else. She is receiving non-alpha numeric characters in her text messages. So far shes gotten it from me and one of her other friends not knowing what to say she called it "caligraphy". Anyways, I am on Metro and her friend is on Verizon. I'd figure its a CDMA issue but she is on a Samsung Moment on Sprint which is also CDMA so idunno.

To me they send fine, but to her some of the texts she receives come in all garbled. Not sure whats going on, anyone got any ideas? Her phone is unrooted, stock, and like a week and a half ago had a factory reset done. Its 2.1 android. In this screenshot I asked her to forward me the "jibberish." She had tried to do it several times earlier but i never got the messages, this time i got it so heres a screenie for you all.

Android :: Things Devices Are Still Lacking

Aug 2, 2010

I'm new here and I want to start things out by asking you guys about certain things Android is lacking. As many of you know, the OS is only a year old but is rapidly evolving. I don't own an Android device yet (I currently have the HTC HD2). I'm waiting for Android to grow considerably bigger so I won't have to worry about future upgrades. Android is an awesome OS and a lot of devices carrying the OS is very good, but I feel there are some things is still lacking. In your opinions, what are the things still lacking? I can only think of one (only because my brain is dried out from work): full flash support. I guess you can also add: more memory but this is more of a micro-SD card issue instead of Android.

HTC Incredible :: Lacking Support For Google Docs

Sep 8, 2010

Ok, so this is more of an Android thing than Inc, but the two things that I think are still sorely lacking are support for Google Docs, and some form of Google virtual drive (like DropBox). On the Docs front, I realize there's GDocs, but since Google Docs is a Google initiative, it'd be nice to have an official app. And on the storage front, it'd be great to have access to the same storage that I have with picasa, Gmail, and google docs, as a desktop accessible drive, with an android component.Anyone know of any solutions other than GDocs and DropBox to achieve these.

HTC :: Incredible Lacking In Quality Wireless Communications

Apr 26, 2010

I wonder if sometimes I don't get caught up in the hype of all the features and cool stuff and forget that first and foremost this is a phone and expect that part to be good, too. I'd love to hear opinions from those who already have received the Incredible as far as call quality and reception issues. Hoping to hear good news because I really want this! Yes, I will keep in mind that this review was only the opinion of the reviewer and it is actually nice to hear the bad with the good to help make an informed decision.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Contacts Lacking Substance

Nov 13, 2010

In regards to the "CONTACTS", or rather the Phone Book, I have a question. Currently when I need to place a significant date on a Contact, I am NOT able to do so. I must switch over to the Calendar app and place the date and significance in this app. However, unless you know every contacts significant in your contact or phone book app, this is not really a fix. It is a simple band aid. Has anyone figured out a way to add a date field (or any fields for that matter), within the contact app on the x10? I know the field is possible, because the field and data is on the contact in Gmail. However, when the x10 and Gmail sync, the dates are omitted from the phone since there is NO corresponding field on it.So, how can this be fixed? Any ideas??? Or is this a 1.6 issue and it is resolved in 2.1? I guess a real quick answer would be for the folks with 2.1 to check a contact on their phone and see if it is there. Or add a NEW contact and see if the field is presented. So, who can shine the light in this dark tunnel?

HTC Droid Eris :: Email Notification Lacking Info

Jan 14, 2010

I setup both my company exchange email and a Gmail account on my new Eris. However, the notifications for a new email on the exchange account only say "1 new email (exchange active sync)", instead of specifying the subject/sender. If I receive a Gmail notification, it shows all the info in the notifications screen.Is there a setting somewhere that affects this? I'd like to be able to see the info in the notification screen without opening up the mail app. I've searched my heart out but couldn't find any solutions. A similar thread from October is here.

Android :: Touch Sensitivity With HTC Dream 1 Device Lacking

Apr 16, 2009

I am the developer of WordUp! This game makes heavy use of the View touch apis to detect press and drag gestures across the letter cubes. Once in a while, I'll get a complaint (unfortunately coupled with a lower star rating) related to not being able to press and drag very easily. For example: "Would be fantastic if touch sensitivity wasn't so off-I had to practically dig my finger into the screen and drag it to connect letters." As a developer, this is really frustrating as I think this is an issue with the HTC Dream 1 hardware and possibly the Android 1.1 OS. I don't think it's fair that I would get dinged for a problem which rightly falls into the court of HTC/Google. In my experience with my own dev phone, I have found that a certain amount of natural oil on your fingertip makes a big difference in how easy it is to press and drag. I know that the touch screen is based on electrical current and, as such, it makes sense that the more oil on your finger, the better "connection" your finger will make with the screen. Perhaps the aforementioned user windexes the screen on a regular basis or compulsively hand-washes? In any case, I am requesting some reasonable explanation for this as I know it's not an isolated incident.

HTC Incredible :: Talk To Type Lacking Basic Features

May 11, 2010

I am very impressed with Talk To Type's accuracy. It's great for chat and many informal things but seems to be missing some features that would have been very easy to implement.1. Automatic capitalization - no brainer - it should capitalize obvious proper names, the word "I" and the beginning of every sentence, or at least this should be an option. 2. Automatic punctuation - it should be an option to place a period at the end of each phrase (defined by when you stop speaking) and if the beginning word was "who", "what", "where", "when", "how", should be an option to automatically enter a question mark. I get that you can speak the name of the punctuation mark, but this option would make it more useful. 3. Numbers less than ten should be spelled out (e.g. "nine" instead of "9") It's so accurate compared to many that I've tried to use in the past, yet it doesn't have these super-basic and very easily implemented features. It makes it less useful for e-mail, especially corporate e-mail, where the mail needs to not resemble a high school text message.

General :: Android Device Landscape Mode Lacking

Jun 16, 2012

Since i have an android device and tried some roms for this device (HTC One S)and its dissapointing to see that landscape mode is so lacking in the space that could have been used in messaging apps.

Its quite annoying (for me atleast) to have to withdraw my keyboard whilst typing something because the one i am texting with has sent something new.

I understand that this is not a place for requests, so my question is, is there any way to make messaging look like this (this image is not real)

and not like this..

I am not looking for a specific rom that allows this, im just looking for anything that makes this possible on any rom.

HTC Desire :: Camera Quality - Images Too Dark And Saturation Lacking?

I'm quite pleased with the camera as long as you have good light - good amount of detail and sharpness for a camera phone. But I do find that the images are often too dark and lacking in saturation, while being too contrasty. Thankfully, there is plenty of info in the camera image files that can be pulled out. There are some sample comparisons on here if you are interested: HTC Desire smartphone camera still photo quality? - Discussion Forum.
