i found a resolution after some research... i stopped using Pandora lol
instead i switched to slacker radio for online radio (sound quality is even better imo) and mixzing for music already on the phone.

both return to the music after voice directions from the navigation
That was going to be my next suggestion lol. cool glad it worked.

Scroll through the list till you find Keyboard Calibration and select it. Then click create. This will create a direct shortcut to the calibration tool. If that doesn't work then I would suggest a factory reset.
thanks Sir Slayer those directions were spot on again thank you

I accidentally imported all my Outlook contacts. I turned off the Outlook contact sync so it won't happen again, but I need to know how to delete all of these contacts from my phone. It makes scrolling through my phone for #s impossible. Help!

Do they show up on your Google Contacts page on the web? If so it might be easier to delete them there.

If you are in the main people app (the one that lists them all) you should be able to select menu/delete and then check all the contacts you want to delete.

Question: (THANKS FOR THIS THREAD!!)

.01 How do I know if a contact is stored on my phone or on Google's servers? Is there an app to move all my contacts to Google?

.02 Is there an app the adds a hyphen (-) between the area code and prefix in my contacts? (ex. XXX-XXX-XXXX) It's annoying that it all runs together (ex. XXXXXXXXXX)

Thank you

.01 - The contacts that say Google will be on googles servers. easiest way to check this is to go onto google Mail on your computer and look at the contacts there and compair to whats on the phone.

.02 - Not that I know of. You need to add them yourself. If most of your contacts are on google then it would probably be easier to edit them on the web then on the phone.

Glad you like the thread. I love helping people out.

I have a question on something I don't understand and I am not sure if anyone can help me or not. Using the main browser I go to this local radio stations website. www.wqmf.com and on there home page I click listen live. Works on Dolphin but on the browser that came with the phone when I click listen live it pops up asking me which program do I want to use to open it but my choices are messaging and handcent it's really weird. It's like they became the default for that action and I don't know how to fix it or if it can be fixed. I just want to click listen live and have the player load and start playing. I have dolphin but I usually just use the main browser. Thanks, Rose

Hmmm, I will check it out see what I can find.

EDIT: I was able to reproduce it, trying to figure a way around it. So far if I choose Handcent and then hit the back button it seems to want to load. but never does. Why not use Dolphin HD, It works hehe. ;-)

Ok, Do this:
1. From the main screen hit Menu/settings/applications/manage applications,
2. Click on the All Tab
3. Search for Internet
4. Click on Internet and clear data, cache, and defaults
5. Close back to the main screen
6. Open the browser and goto that page.
7. (not sure if this made a difference) put the phone in landscape mode
8. Click on the listen live button and click internet for all the defaults and it should play. Did for me and didn't ask for messaging or handcent.

I guess I can use Dolphin but I am used to the regular browser.. I don't know why but I mainly use the browser that came with the phone. I like Dolphin also.. When I add a bookmark to the regular browser does it automatically show up in Dolphin? Are my same ones in both? I think I have that bookmarks add on for Dolphin.

I'm trying it now but it erased my bookmarks. :-( Maybe I should of just clicked on clear defaults and maybe cache and not data. Cause now I have to sign in to stuff again like FB and it's asking about remembering password again. I have my bookmark widget with several bookmarks so I can just open them up and readd and I'll get some of them back. Is there a way my bookmarks are maybe on a folder on my sd card or can I transfer Dolphin ones back to regular browser if there all the same. Thanks though for helping me! :-)

Edit: Ok I tried it and it always ask me which browser I want to use cause I don't have a default one set up yet. But I chose the regular one and it asked me again two more times then went to the radiostation name/mediaplayer.com but it sounds funny kind of muffled it's weird.. And now it sounds funny on Dolphin. The advertisement plays clear then the song came on and sounded funny also. Somethings weird. I may reboot my phone. It p-layed nice and clear on iheart radio but somthings wrong now with the browser and listen live it's real slow and sounding so weird.

There is an app called bookmarkes to SD that is free and can be used to back up the bookmarks. Sorry about that. I just don't use the default browser so I didn't check that. For your friend though have him use bookmarks to SD first.

I think I do have Bookmarks to SD it was a Dolphin add on. I'll check. But I don't know if every bookmark on regular browser in is my Dolphon i'll have to check, I know some are. But it's weird how other radio station played fine but this particular one was muffled and funky on both browsers. Maybe it's just a fluke and there site is messed up but I forgot I had iheart radio and it played fine there. I heart buffers sometimes and goes in and out so I prefer the browser. But anyway I'll readd my bookmarks if there not on sd card. Thanks!

FWIW turning my Epic over does not silence the ringer. Need to drag the call icon to 'ignore' or 'ignore with text'. I'd like the 'turn over' feature but alas, sprint or samsung did not implement it. (android 2.1)

Us EVO Users have a sensor on the top of our phone that will allow us to do this. These tips are mostly for EVO Users. But I thank you for the info. If there is a sensor on the phone (usally the screen will black out when on a call and its held up to your cheek). You may want to check SDX- Developers to see if they have a way to enable it.

One tip I found is that if you have Swype, you can go back and forth between Swype and the standard touch keyboard with a long press in the text box in which you will be entering text. It will then let you select your input method. Much easier than going through the menu.

Hello, I was wondering if there is a way to make it so my phone doesn't auto-answer when I move my phone. Or when its dark in my room. Lately my phone rings once then answers regardless if I move or touch it when it is dark. When it is light my phone will answer if I move my phone at all. I don't put my phone in my pants pocket and I always have it in my hand when I'm out. Any tips or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

p.s. forgive me if this doesn't make sense. I have been woke up several times tonight because of this problem. ( I use my phone as an second alarm)

I searched for quite awhile for settings for this and do not see any. Just curious did you load up an app called auto answer or something similar? Sounds like an app has taken over your calls. I will keep searching though.

Nope, I don't think so. Because android was developed by google, Gmail is intertwined with the OS. I am pretty sure it will be there no matter what.

Default Contacts Management

The Google Contacts feature is pathetic. I need to list my contacts by company name, but Google doesn't allow this. Any idea if the Droid interface with Google Contacts can do this?

Faililng this, anyone have suggestions for a good Droid product that offers full contact management that can sync with my PC (either online or direct to my PC)?

Thanks!

Welcome to the forums.

First off....its Android....Droid is Verizon's brand name for Android (Can't stand Verizon lol).

On to the issue:
Do you use the groups option? You can put all your contacts in groups and can just view the groups that way. All the contacts and groups will auto sync with GMail automatically. Also if you want to us Outlook then you should be able to use HTC Sync software for that.

There may be other applications on the market you could search for. I myself use the groups and like it a lot so have never had a need to find an alternate solution.

If your not sure how to set up groups let me know and I will post the directions for using them.

Sorry for the late reply. I do not have any auto answering apps on my phone. Sometimes it happens to my husband's phone but mostly to my phone. I called customer service but they didn't know why this was happening either. ;_; I will take my phone in and see if I can get a new one. Thank you for trying though. I searched for a while and couldn't find anything about this on the internet. So I thought I'd ask. Thanks again ^_^

I have a question, I'm a noob & I recently got my EVO I wanted to add mp3 files to my SD card but I can't locate it when I sync with my PC (Disk drive mode) I tried the drag n drop method into a music folder I created, but it turns out I added the files to to my device memory instead. Coming from windows mobile there was a icon for a memory card so I just need to know of all the folders that show up when I connect my phone, which one is the SD card folder? if there is already instructions please point me in the right direction as this is my 1st time using android OS as well...Thanks in advance!

The instructions are on the very first post and is the very first tip:
Here they are as well:
A. Adding Ringtones, Alarms, and Notifications to EVO (Thanks Companyman!!!!):
1. On your SD card make a folder called Media (if it's already there skip step)
2. In the media folder make a folder called audio
3. In the audio folder make a folder called "ringtones", "alarms", and "notifications"
4. Put any ringtones that you want in these folders.

Welcome to the forums....

Water can be a very evil thing. I am afraid I don't have much to offer you accept maybe try to get it replaced if you have insurance on it. I also don't have much knowledge of the G1 either. So all I can really do is sympathize with ya and wish you the best of luck.

Thanks SirSlayer, I saw the 1st post, but where I had trouble was identifying which file was the sd card, when I usb sync in disk drive mode different folders pop up but none say SD or SD Card so I don't wanna store my music in the main memory by accident again I used astro file mgr & the sdcard file showed up but when I opened it the same folders showed up so I didn't know how yo use it, I understand I may sound frustrated & seem annoying I just want to know what the file is called so I know how to locate it to make new media files Thanks again

When you connect via USB you can only see your SD Card files. So all the files on your phone are safe. When you build the file structure like was stated in the first post you will see the notifications, ringtones, and alarms when you select those categories when picking one of them.

Welcome to the forums.

I am also using outlook but have not experienced a syncing issue with it. What exactly is it doing? Does it try to sync and not sync? does it just spin? what are your sync settings set too? To check this from the main menu select menu/settings/Accounts and Sync. then select Exchange ActiveSync. Make sure calendar is selected.

If it is selected try this:
Go into the calendar app.
Click on Menu/More/Calendars...Make sure Exchange is selected.

Now this is assuming that you are using outlook with exchange.

Let me know if this helps.

Now when you go to select ringtones on your evo your custom ringtones should show up in the list.
You can also use Astro File Mgr. Just long press the MP3 and select Music Options (last item on the file option list) and then choose to use as a ringtone.

Yep this is true. That setup that is explained is so that it will show up in the system default when you choose ringtone, notifications, or alarms. If you use Handcent it will also allow you to have more options as well.

The way I described does this for Ringtones. I long pressed on an MP3 on the SD card and chose Music Options and then Set as Ringtone. Then when you go in under Settings/Sound/Phone Ringtone it is listed there along with the other pre-loaded ringtones. Even if you change to another ringtone, the one you saved will still show up on the list so you can re-choose it. I have added several ringtone that way and they all show up.
They do not however show up on the list of Notifications though (and I haven't checked, but assume they won't be there for Alarms) but for Ringtones, all's good.

Thanks!
As a business user of the evo there is only one app I have found that really works well is Contact Search+ in the market. Worth every penny! Searching 600+ contacts (by Company, as well as every other contact field, and notes!) Is an absolute breeze.

Hello All

Succesfully started FryeO Android on my TMO HTC HD2. Please help me on the following:

1. When i reply all thru my exchange, getting a copy into my inbox. How to stop that?
2. I was a blackberry user. In that using their laptop version of their communication manager setup a rule for emails (based on either by sender or subject/body contents) and mark them as high priority and sync it with device. On the handset, on the ring profiles, specify what ring tone to play for HIGH PRIORITY items. This feature helped me to if I get high priority application support tickets. Can this feature available on Android handsets, if so what type of app/settings I have to make.

Appreciate help

1. What do you mean by this? Your getting a copy to your inbox on your computer and Phone? or in two places on your phone?

2. As far as I know there is no way to set a high priority ring for email in android. I think its a great idea though. You may want to suggest that to Google. I don't have a clue were you would send such a request.

Thank you for quick response.

What I meant for 1 was:

Let's say got an email which has multiple "TO" addressess and when I do REPLY ALL, I don't want my response to be sent to me. When I see the address list on "REPLY ALL" my email address also exists. I belive there is a way where you tell EXCHAGE what's my email address was (even though that was part of my signon), I know where to enter my email ID in WIN Mobile devices, don't know where in Android device.

Ok what's the best program out there to tell you what program is draining your battery the most. All of a sudden here lately my battery is drainign so fast and I've done all the tips and tricks. This am I woke up and it was off just from sitting on my night stand for 7 hour and it was at 98% when I went to bed. I play word feud all the time. I got this push to talk app. And I got this wimax notifier awhile back wonder if thats doing it. I had Juice Plotter and just got Juice something else and deleted them both. I have Y5 Battery Saver which I just disabled thinking maybe it had something to do with it. I don't know. I have system panel and every since 2.2 I end stuff and it comes back. And I also have been seeing under running apps google messages or something like that which maybe google talk but when I force it I see it back in there later on. I have Android Systems and Quick settings and spare parts but maybe there's something else I need. My battery has been draining much worse here lately and I don't know what from. I got Angry Birds awhile back. Just wondering what else I got recently oh Good Morning alarm which I like. And when I snooze it several times I also notice my battery drain more but it may have been draining worse before that app I can't remember. But any help would be appreciated. I would hate to reset my phone and start over but my battery was never this bad. I followed these tips one night and it drained 1% an hour then all of a sudden last night at 98% I'm turned off in the am from a dead battery. Something is not right! Thanks, Rose

Damn, I don't know you have a lot going on there. Some of those Apps I just never use, especially spare parts. I have used astro file manager in the past, they have a process manager tool in it that you can see what is using the cpu. I haven't needed it though for along time. I do know that killing apps can make it were you will chew up battery because there may be other apps that were dependent on the one you closed. You could also check so see if Google Voice is logged in. I always make sure the auto login is off because that one will drain the battery quite a bit as well. Other then that you may need to start removing apps one at a time in reverse order you loaded them, test out the battery, until you find the app thats causing the issues (Factory reset might be faster though )

Sorry if this wasn't much help, its just when you have so much going on it can get rough.
