Country you are using your phone in ? US


I have only a few questions
1. anyway or any fix to correct the battery drain? Is there a known issue?
2. can I delete city id, and peep, along with a few other factory installed programs
3. Is there an application that I can use to add separate notifications for different email accounts? I am in an on call situation and would like to have the emergency emails have a different ring tone. OR can I set the email address to use a different notification?

Other than that the phone is "incredible" - a little cheesy but it does everything it said it would.

I am currently running a Droid ERIS on leaked 2.1v3. I have loved this phone from day one (even with cupcake) without any major problems, however, I am up for an upgrade. The Incredible seems to be the obvious choice for me as of this point, but I don't want to jump on a phone at a contract extension price if there's something better coming out by August. Any suggestions or rumored phones are appreciated.

Default Saving contacts to SD Drive or syncing to gmail contacts

2.) Firmware Version ? __1.5_________
3.) Baseband Version ? ___1.04.04.10.09________
4.) Kernel Version ? _2.6.27-6c66721___htc-kernel@and18-2#958_____
5.) Build Number ? __1.6.568.1 CL101407 release keys_________

Also do you have a T-Mobile Data plan on your
PayAsYouGo or FlexPay Plan? ___no____________

Carrier ? ___CellCom_______ (we know some are also Unlocked so not Just T-Mobile)

Country you are using your phone in ? ________USA_______ (we know that not everyone is from the US)

Is the phone SIM registered in T-Mobile as the Correct phone?
T-Mobile Customer Services can tell you that and make
any necessary corrections so that it is properly recognized
when connected. -


PROBLEM needing help with: I want to save my contacts to an SD Drive - don't see any menu option that allows me to do that. Also tried syncing to gmail and lost all the contacts loaded on my phone from my old phone -- was able to reload, but don't want to sync again for fear of same thing happening -- therefore, want to save them to SD Drive before syncing again. Do I understand correctly, if the contacts in the People file say Google, you won't lose them in the syncing process. As now they say Google, but I don't think they did before. I also would like to know, how to sync without getting all duplicates -- and without losing similar but not the same contacts - i.. one contact has their email address, and another one has their phone #. Or they have multiple email addresses, so don't want them overwritten. Appreciate the help. (still have contacts on my old HTC 6850 - which I could also save from to SD Drive, if I knew how to do it. THANKS!

I bought it last year (croatia) and since day one nothing but problems.

I'm a total noob,so please tell he how to fix all those bugs by upgrading or something.
I'm so frustrated,phone was expensive and yet it's like the model of a 3g phone.
thanks.

Noob here - My Eris will not rotate to landscape even though I have it set for automatic orientation. Makes it a PITA for email / text (especially with fat fingers). Any ideas? If I have to do a hard reset, what info will / will not be wiped out? How do I go about saving any data that might be lost in the process? Thx.

4.) Kernel Version ? 2.629
5.) Build Number ? 2.36.605.1

I was wondering if anyone has an idea on how to send calls on an Eris with using only the send button (mechanical button next to the ball). My wife keeps calling people on accident by hitting the button too many times. I haven't found an app that will do this on our phones (we have the same model). Something like on flip phones when you open the phone but it doesn't answer until you hit send.
Please help if possible

Hi There,

My problem is that I've tried several Sterero Bluetooth headsets with my phone but they all produced a very annoying cracking sound at middle and high freqs. I looks like the phone is encoding the audio stream at a very poor quality. (this degradation can't be heard if I use a wired headphone)
The latest set I bought finally was a SE MW600. I tried it out with other phoned as well an it sounded great except on my phone.
Now the question is that can I tweak the A2DP setting on my phone the same way it can be done on windows mobile to improve A2DP quality or is there any other way to get around this issue.

Thanks for your answers in advance.

Default My droid hero upgrade 2.1 is not good

1st of all when I call someone there is a little vibration for no reason (I don't want like or need this feature)
2nd thing when I make a call the screen blacks out and I cannot find a solution for this. In my world I need to be able to use the screen to select options switch between calls mute the phone and un-mute I work for a living and (I don't want like or need this feature)
3rd thing is I use a blue tooth head set and for some reason my hero now when I answer a call and say "Hi" the other party barely hears me and then for just a second I hear them on the hand set not my head set but then it links up and we hear each other nicely. It appears to be some delay (more than with 1.x) (I don't want like or need this feature)
there are other features that have not caught my interest maybe Iíll work through it or I wonít. I do love the phone but 2.1 makes me miss my Black Berry
The expanding function like the iphone is cool to zoom in on a doc or browser. So there is something good about the new Android 2.1

Hi,

My HTC Legend craches and says Android.process.acore has stopped unexpectedly, force close. There is nothing I can do about this and I have to reset to factory settings. This is very anoying as I loose all my settings, apps etc.
Is there anyway of solving this without having to reset the entire phone? I've tried to delete the app I blame for this problem but that did not help.

Thank you

Mads

Carrier ? unlocked using it with 02 (we know some are also Unlocked so not Just T-Mobile)

Country you are using your phone in ? UK (we know that not everyone is from the US)

Now to the problem!!

To recieve my emails I use the googlemail app that came already installed on the phone but there seems to be a problem as when I try to refresh it to sync with googlemail for me to get my emails I keep getting this error message saying 'the process com.google.process.gapps has stopped unexpectedley. Please try again' and then the only thing I can do is to force close it. So I assume its some sort of syncing problem. This problem happens when trying to sync both over wifi and the 3G network.

I've been having this problem since about 1800 last night and is a major problem for me as I receive 100+ emails a day. So I do hope someone can give me a quick solution.

Thanks Ryan

Hi,

I already have another question thread open but I just found out about this one.

  1. When I place/take off my phone from the dock charger all of my apps from my homescreens disappear and only return when I shut the phone down and turn it back on. Why is this happening.
  2. I've just recently decided to sync my Facebook account to my contacts. For some reason I only have pictures for a few people and emails for everyone else. I have everyone's names set up as they appear of their Facebook accounts. Does this just take a long time because I synced my phone a number of times and no progress has been made.
  3. When I add a contact my phone asks me what account I want to add it to (Gmail and YouTube). Obviously I choose Gmail because I sync my contacts to Google Contacts and YouTube wouldn't make any sense. To add the contact I have to go to Google Contacts online and add it to my phone. The contact info I added on my phone is only online and not in my phone. Any suggestions?
  4. Sometimes when I use the Google Search widget with the touchscreen widget the widget gets stuck at the top of my screen and I have to reboot my phone for it to move back to its regular place (it moves to the top of the screen so the keyboard can fit)

I haven't rooted my phone or done anything along those lines at all. None of this started until 2.1 came out.

I have just bought the phone, HTC DESIRE and have the following problem:

In summary, when I get a call or sms, and the number is already saved in my phonebook:

1. If the number is from abroad, there is no problem, it shows the saved contact name.

2. If the number is local, it only shows the name if the number was saved without the international calling code, ie if saved as 5987321xxx

3. If the number is local, it does not show the name if the number was saved with the international calling code, ie if saved as +44 5987321xxx

Please let me know if it can be solved and how.

Can't connect to Google apps at all! so close to ditching android...

1.) Model Number ? LG GW620
2.) Firmware Version ? 1.5
3.) Baseband Version ? doesn't display on my phone
4.) Kernel Version ? 2.6.27 LGE@new1 #4
5.) Build Number ? Not displayed on my phone

Also do you have a T-Mobile Data plan on your
PayAsYouGo or FlexPay Plan? I am with Virgin but when I look at 'network' under 'settings' 'status' it does say T-mobile...

Carrier ? Virgin

Country you are using your phone in ? UK

Problem:

Had problems right from the beginning because my google calendar syncs to the phone and deletes everything off the one I view on my PC (work or home). Worked around this because I have a sky google calendar, so manually input everything in there and shared with my other google account. Google never responded, took months of googling for it and finally figuring out for myself what to do!
Then 2 weeks ago downloads from the market stopped working. This drove me mad as I have only had the phone since Jan this yr and I'm still exploring apps to find the right ones for me... so I googled for a fix and someone suggested clearing the caches. Did this, phone then asked me to log back in to my google account, but refuses to let me! If I try and log in, it says

'Can't establish a reliable data connection to the server - This could be a temp problem or your SIM may not be provisioned for data services. If it continues, call Customer Care.'

What customer care?! I will try my carrier's customer line, but this is happening to lots of people on the android bug reporting site, with lots of different models. Some people suggest a factory reset but others say this doesnt help and I don't want to risk loosing all the info I already have stored on my phone. Some have talked about rooting, but I don't understand what that is or what the implications are or how to do it! I am so close to ditching the Eve, getting a basic phone and getting an ipod touch. At least they have a customer service line!

I really don't wanna bail until I've tried my hardest. So is there anyone out there that could shed some light on my situation? I am slightly techy, but not techy enough to understand what the problem is.

Thanks so much, any helpful comments greatly appreciated!!

Default My Droid Eris is acting screwy...

On the front screen, it "fights me." What I mean is, it scrolls all the way to the left so I can't do anything with my phone. When I try to scroll back to the right, it keeps fighting me and scrolling to the left. This only started happening after the Eris got the 2.1 update. I took it to Verizon and they reset my phone to its original settings (keeping the software update at 2.1 of course), but it's still acting funny.

Also, today, I was in my facebook app and I was trying to type something, but it kept exiting the keyboard screen.

Thanks.

New to rooting so please forgive my noobish questions. I have superuser permissions before installing Jrummy's Remix v0.8 onto my rooted 2.1 droid. After installing the rom, I can no longer see my superuser permission's. Is this normal? I also can no longer access apps I have for rooted user's only.

My second problem is before installing the above rom I tried to root the 2.2 froyo using the instructions for clockwork mod. The installation was aborted and it had something to do with apps2sd so I recovered my previous rom.

Hi,
I'm new to android. Have a Sony Ericsson X10 Xperia for a few days.
Love it so far.
the ony problem I have is I've added apps to folders on the home screen, I assume it's just a shortcut.
As the main apps page still has the app. How do I keep track of What is new or old.
Thanks
Gareth

Questions:
-Is there a "primer" for rooting, kernals, etc? My Droid is unrooted running 2.1, considering rooting but my head starts swimming when I see discussion about it. Need a n00b simple understanding of how it all works and what I should look for. I tried Home++ and Helix Launcher earlier and didn't like either, both seemed plain and uninteresting. Maybe I'm just ******ed. I want something that's not NECESSARILY more glitzy/graphics intensive, but is DEFINITELY sleeker, faster, and gives me more control over my phone. If I can streamline the existing system, don't think I would want to overclock.

-App/OS for viewing more types of media files? MPEG4 only gets a bit boring...

-What apps/services/system processes that are running are CRITICAL for system stability and which ones can I stop to increase performance? I'm running ATK for that purpose but focus only on Apps that I chose to run/stop.

As you can see I know enough to get myself in trouble.

1.) Model Number : ADR6300

4.) Kernel Version : 2.6.29-cc1c2268 htc-kernel@and18-2 #1
5.) Build Number : 1.22.605.2 CL161494 release-keys

I have the HTC Android and all was going well until a couple days ago, when I got the notification "Low on space - Phone storage space is getting low"

I checked the phone storage, and I have plenty of storage, plenty of memory, and plenty of sd card storage space. I tried to clear the notification, but to no avail. I tried rebooting several times, and it still will not go away. Then I when I woke up this morning, I saw that I have another notification in addition to the first one.

"Not enough storage space for SMS.. Your phone's storage is almost full" Again, I checked my storage levels and they are all nearly empty.

What's the deal?

Also do you have a T-Mobile Data plan on your

Carrier ?Rogers (we know some are also Unlocked so not Just T-Mobile)

Country you are using your phone in ? Canada (we know that not everyone is from the US)

Is the phone SIM registered in T-Mobile as the Correct phone? With Rogers Yes.

My issue is that I just upgraded my Spica with the new 2.1 Firmware and i am unable to access my data plan. I have called Rogers and they said because I have upgraded it there might be some problems and that is why I am unable to use my data plan.
I need some help!!!

1.) Model Number hero200
2.) Firmware Version 2.1 - update 1
3.) Baseband Version 2.42.01.04.27
4.) Kernel Version 2.6.29-bc0d2cff (htc-kernel@and18-2#1)
5.) Build Number 2.27.651.5 CL169236 release-keys

Im having problems with the keyboard where it will not display the characters while im typing. This doesnt happen all the time, but it does happen quite frequently. Has anyone else had this issue? Can it be resolved completely?

The other issue im having is when i try to make an outgoing phone call, it takes about 15-20 seconds before the screen pops up that shows the call in progress. This does happen A LOT! Is there any way to resolve this as well?

Any help or advice would be GREATLY appreciated!!

Thanks so much!

Ok here is my dilemma. I am looking to get the iPhone's new message HORN sound uploaded to my Nexus One. Does anyone know a website or location where I can simply download it and then save it to my phone??

I'm NOT referring to the old car horn which is also on the iPhone. I'm looking for the one that sounds like a lunch cart/clown horn.

PLEASE HELP...

Default Do People Still Listen To Songs In Order Any More?

i have Motorola Model a855. as far as the other information requested i am so new to this i have no idea what that information is.

my problem is with the Android music player. i have spent the entire day reading reviews of the stock player and a variety of other players available. no where does a single review/post mention that the Droid cannot play songs in the order as they appear on the CD. am i the only person more concerned with how the player works (plays music) than how "cool" it looks (boy this this is sleek and sexy)?

a great example might be how can one listen to the great works like Opera...say La Boheme? or my choice on music classic rock. how does one listen to Dark Side of the Moon out of order? or side two of Beatles Abbey Road or Tommy? is it me? am i the last person on earth who cares that their classic music play in the order it was intended?

can't this problem be resolved?

Hi. I have a new Droid Eris and have a few questions.

1. I have somehow de-activated the pull down notification bar and now I want it back. How can I get it back?

2. I previously had a Palm Centro. When I switched my data over I lost all of my calendar entries and the addresses of all my contacts. This includes birthdays. I asked Verizon how to get the info. but they said it would all have to be re-entered. Is this correct?

3. What is up with the weather on the home page? I don't feel like it is ever accurate. I think I have it set to update but it never does.

Thanks so much in advance!!

Is the phone SIM registered in T-Mobile as the Correct phone? NO
T-Mobile Customer Services can tell you that and make
any necessary corrections so that it is properly recognized
when connected. <<< BEEN THERE DONE THAT !!! AND ...

The problems I have seen showed up with the FroYo update recently. Got OTA-WiFi from FRF50 to FRF91 and here's what I saw:

WiFi Settings screen would not scroll with my finger swipes and was rather unresponsive. Access Points(APs) would page in and out of view but scrolling with my finger was useless. This problem later went away and I've not seen it since.

Later on, days later, I could not unlock my phone with the finger swipe. The screen was unresponsive to swipping. Even the power button didn't always turn the backlight on, it might light the buttons but not the LCD. An hour later after I changed locations, I was able to unlock the phone but my WiFi icon was not there and it should have been. A notification said something like "WiFi Error" so I rebooted the Nexus One and the problem no longer showed up.

I just looked at a few posts and it looks like lots of people are asking usage questions and not posting "problems". I turned the light off, now do I turn it back on type questions are probably not the kind of support questions they were expecting. The general forum area is where those kinds of things should go. Questions like 'my phone won't turn on' or 'my screen is broken how do I get this fixed' might be more like what they are looking for.

So I have been looking through the forums and can not find out how to sync to my Outlook. I need the contacts and calendar sync nothing else. After reading the forums it seems that this issue is fairly mundane but I am a bit tech-fobic and a simpleton. Please teach me how to do this in simple steps? I am new to this Evo/Android world. Thank you in advance.

I don't use MS eXchange but I saw it here:
Go into Settings and then Accounts & Sync. In there you should see an Add button and when you tap that, you should see MS eXchange as one of the options. You're on your own from there. good luck.

Hi I'm using a Motorola Droid and am having a problem syncing only ONE contact with their facebook profile.

Everything was fine until Handcent SMS wouldn't pop him up as a suggestion when typing in a recipient. I would type in "Erik" but his number wouldn't be listed. I had to click the '+' icon on Handcent and then go into the "Recent" tab. Yes, I have Handcent set to only show MOBILE numbers however, his number WAS listed as his mobile.

I posted on Handcent's forum and they said to delete the contact and just re-add him. So I did. However, now his photo (aka his facebook profile) will not sync with my Google Account. I've tried putting his full name, first name, last name, more information that matched his Facebook but with no success.

This is where it gets really interesting, when I open my facebook app, normally there's that "box" around the contact's picture that pops up with options (text, call, etc) when you click their picture. However, with this contact, there's no nifty box there...

Any ideas? Thanks for the help!

I have moved from a Blackberry to an Incredible. On the Blackberry I had a message in case the phone was lost with name and contact number. How can I put a similar message on the lock screen? I'm sure it must be a simple mod. Thanks

Ok now to my issue. My friend wanted to play with my phone. He does not know my unlock pattern at all. He grabs the phone and just does some random fast scribble scrabble pattern and magically unlocks the pattern. I grab the phone lock it by pressing on the end call button to lock it again and i go ahead and do the same thing he did and it unlocked my pattern. Why is this happening? could it be cause my phone is rooted? is this a flaw from android? He told me that it is a bug or something that all android phones have. Hope you guys can help. Thank you very much....

Default Android market and new apps

Hi,

I'm kinda new to this whole thing and so i'm having a little trouble with some stuff. Firstly i'm trying to add new apps to my htc desire but up until now have been having problems finding the apps to download. A lot of sites say that i have to 'search' the android market for the specific app but i can't find anywhere the search function on this site! I have a really bad feeling that this could be a very simple question but if anyone could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

Secondly, the apps that i am able to stumble across are still not available for me to get on my phone, for example barcode scanner, skype etc. are these apps even available for the desire. If so then what am i doing wrong that i can't get them on my phone??

Again i'm sorry if these are silly questions but this process is not going as smoothly as i would have hoped being new to android!

Thanks for any help/advice

Hi all,

Hope you can help. I have a slightly odd problem with my HTC Hero.

When I save a number to my phonebook it says it saves but after a while it disappears from my phonebook. If I immediately try to save it specifically to the SIM card it says: "SIM card error. No contacts saved"

It doesn't matter if I type the numbers in manually or save them from a text message or from the call log.

I'd like to avoid sending my phone off and I am wondering if anyone has had a similar problem and can help??

Any help well appreciated. Thank you very much!!

I'm on verizon using the A855 and the same thing happens to me... I wake the phone up, the screen blinks and then goes blank and I lose all icons. I can access them from the bottom menu but have to restart the phone to get the icons back on all three of my home screens... If you find the answer lemme know; I'll do the same.

This morning I purchased and downloaded/installed the 'chomp sms' texting app and set it up to work on my phone. I love it, it works great. The only thing is, when I receive a text message, in the 'notifications box' that you can pull down, i get notifications for two different message programs. The standard messaging system in the phone, as well as the 'chomp sms' system. When I receive a text, both of the programs set off their notifications/rings/vibrations. Is there a way I can turn off the standard messaging systems program, or at least make it so it does not notify me? That way when I receive a text, only 'chomp SMS' will notify me?
