There is an HTC widget of bookmarks, could that be what you mean?
It is number 19 of 80 under "view all HTC widgets "

If it's an app, find the app in the app drawer and drag it from the app drawer to an open space on a home screen.
It's not an app that I'm looking for. It's the personalized screens that come standard on the device. Such as the home page with the clock, the people page where tyou have the head icons for your favorites, your personal agenda, the bookmarks page with mini versions of your favorite bookmarks, and so on. Of those seven pages, I accidentally deleted the headers (widgets?), so now they're are blank pages whereas before they had the google quick search, and the bookmarks page.

I also tried searching for the correct widget, but there are only 7 widget choices from my HTC Hub (daily challenge, fortune cookie, quick record, sand timer, today in history, translator, word of the day). When I click on the lower menu button for that screen, it only gives me the option to refresh, or sort.

I hope all of that makes sense. And sorry for not using the android lingo, because I'm a total newbie to android phones.

OK - long-press the free space, then select widgets.

The things you're describing are HTC widgets. You can find all 80 under the top heading or get to the popular ones like agenda (via Calendar), Clock, Bookmarks and so forth all on that same page without into the folder of all 80.

i've had my 3vo since the 24th and all has been well up until a few days ago when some of the apps i downloaded lose they're icons. not only that my screen seems to make it's own choices for example; random apps will start running even if not on the home page im displaying, when using an app settings pop ups will appear and selections are chosen all while my fingers are nowhere near the screen.....

any help or insight will be greatly appreciated.

Are the apps that are going missing installed on your SD card? If you don't know, go to Menu (button) > Settings > Applications > Manage Applications and click the SD tab. If your applications that go missing are checked here, that is why they disappear. When you plug your phone in to a computer, it's probably set up as a disk drive and the computer takes over your SD card, which removes the apps from the phone's control, which makes them look like they're deleted.

The second issue I have no clue about. But it sounds like malware.

Thanks, Early. Have you heard of this happening before? I didn't see anything in searches earlier, but I'll try some other terminology and see if something pops up.
Just saw your post here. Wanted to comment that I have it too and its lil annoying when you see it as it doesn't go away. lol

btw, this has been a topic over at xda http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=15395866#post15395866 for a bit and there seems to be various different amounts of "tilt" and also people noticing 2 manufactures for the phones again, this time novatec and sharp, and one of sets even producing a yellowish tint to the white colors on the screen.

Ive got bright whites here on mine but have the tiny tilt in the screen. Now debating if worth getting a replacement and being forced to have the 2 OTA's installed as I worry what if they figure full root s-off but only on the pre OTA versions. I know temp root is working on the current OTA's but always a chance i guess they might have to be on pre ota to get s-off if they find a new hole there that helps more....

I've been following the yellowish tint threads over there for some time - and I've heard conjecture of two screens, but not as often as I've heard a lot of things mentioned.

I cannot find any posts when searching nova or novatec in the XDA 3D general forum.

Kindly link where this information has been confirmed.

Maybe try LookOut, free in Market, or EStrongs Security - and do a scan of your phone. That's a good start, imo.

Default Anyone else having random lockups?

My grandpa just recently got himself an Evo 3D, and I've been his "go-to guy" for everything Android, but he asked me about something that I wouldn't know about, so I figured I'd ask here.

He said that 2 or 3 times since he's got the phone, after not using it for a few hours, he'll go to use it and it'll be stuck on the lock screen. He says that when he presses any buttons, it acts like they were pressed (vibrate, screen on, etc.) but they don't actually do anything. The phone is just 100% irresponsive. He says that it's fixed after a battery pull. Is anyone else having this issue? If so, have you figured out how to fix it?

Thanks.

Angry Wifi and select player

Posted this on 2 other sites. No responses. Is it working that seamlessly for everyone or does nobody use it. If you go in the music app and click evo 3d or menu -> select player it will find your computer if your on the same wifi. At least it did this the first 2 days I had it. Now it just buffers and won't find anything. Media share is working fine...
I was having an error even when this was finding my pc however it does not even show up at all now

Welcome to the forums!

First, try a router reboot - could be as simple as a stuck bit.

We have another thread for streaming media and Sprint, but I don't know if that applies here - Streaming media and the Tyrrany of the Sprint Proxies

Not using that feature as you are, so let's wait and see what others say.

Maybe reboot your windows machine, too. I have media sharing disabled on my computer, so I can't confirm this or not.

Thanks for the welcome, I will try the router reset when I get home although I'm not sure how that would help if the wifi is working correctly, but you guys know more than me so I'll try it.

Restart my windows machine? I'm thinking you mean my computer sorry if I'm wrong but I did try that I will power cycle everything and post back.

I would just like to add my xbox finds the pc easily although it is hooked up via ethernet.

Yeah, I meant your computer. But I wanted to make it more specific to the computer running Windows rather than the computer running Android

Ok, rebooted router, reset windows machine, and power cycled. Still when I select player it just buffers until it finds nothing. Jerofld you mentioned you have media sharing disabled on your computer. This computer is your pc correct not your phone? If so how do you go about enabling/disabling this so I can see if that possibly happened to me.

And I would greatly appreciate anybody with a home wifi to open your music app or any picture from your gallery and hit menu then select player and tell me if your computer pops up along side your 3vo in the list so that I could be assured this is a problem I am having and that maybe after going through the last update this isn't just an issue that popped up from htc or whatever. thanks

Thanks for the XDA link. I hadn't been on the general forums there for a bit and was thinking I might be the only one. I am guessing it had always been there and wasn't a result of whatever caused the non-responsiveness and camera glitch I had this past week. Ah well.

I brought mine to the store today and they opened it up. The screen is mounted that way and unable to be moved. I was offered a new one when they get the next shipment, probably Monday.

That little bit of me that is OCD just can't take a screen off-center on a brand new phone so I will get it switched out when that new one arrives.

Yeah, I'm on my 3rd one now, and all three have had slightly crooked screens.. the first two were a lot worse than the one I have now. It's still noticeable when I look for it, but I can usually disregard it. I've only seen one with a perfectly straight and centered screen so far, and it was one of the demo units at the Sprint Store. Not gonna lie, I really want to have a perfectly centered screen.

Huh? I am not aware of this problem. Crooked how? Pictures of it?

Update: saw pictures on XDA.

Anyone else having problems with GPS dropping in Navigator? The location gets a blue circle around it and it gets bigger until it drops completely. It then takes a couple min to pick back up and then will drop again after a few min.

I've never seen it. But I would recommend you get GPS Test and see if the signal dropping is due to your GPS receiver or maybe the Navigation app is not functioning correctly.

But some things to try:

Toggle off GPS and wait 10 seconds. Then turn it back on.

Pull the battery out of the unit and wait at least 30 seconds. 60+ seconds is recommended.

If the problem persists, you can hard reset (factory reset in the SD & phone settings menu) or take it to a Sprint repair center and have them test the unit.

Default Losing the GPS signal

When I use the Car Panel Navigation program I have lost the GPS signal multiple times, I k now this because the phone says "GPS signal lost". This just happens at random, not when there is any obstruction or bad weather and I'm using it in the same area I used my Nexus S in which never lost it's signal. Is this a common/known issue?



*Sorry if there is a thread on this, the search doesn't come up with any results when you put in GPS*

I don't know if its evo specific or not. I spent the 4th of july weekend in orlando so I was relying on gps quite a bit. There were a few times where I lost gps signal and it would reconnect as well. My dad, who has a samsung epic, was having the same exact issues as well so I don't know what is going on exactly.

Thanks for the suggestions. I tried them all except the hard reset. It's not a problem with Navigator. GPS Test is showing the satellites in yellow and orange with one of them occasionally going red or disappearing completely. Gonna take it in to a sprint store and see if there's anything they can do.

*Edit* Oh just wanted to add. I thought maybe my Otterbox Commuter case might be causing some sort of interference. I took it off, but it didn't help the signal strength at all.

I'm having the same issues with my EVO 3D GPS and I don't have it in a case. I didn't have any issues with the Nexus S NAV/GPS and I'm using the device in the same locations. Please let me know what Sprint tells you, I can't make it out to them for a few days.

If Sprint doesn't replace your unit, I would be interested in seeing if your accuracy meter in GPS Test differs in accuracy like the blue circle in navigator does. Also if you keep at least 4 yellow bars the whole time.

Default Pressing power button shows shutdown option without long-pressing power button

Anyone else seeing this?

A lot of time when I press "power" button on top right to put device in sleep, it will show the power off (shutdown) option, which normally shows up when I long-press "power" button.

For Evo or the other Android phones, I have to long press "power" button to get to the power screen. But on Evo 3d, 5 out of 10 times, when I just press "power" button to go to sleep mode, I got that screen. It feels that my power button is over-sensitive or something.

It is not a big deal and I can live with it, but it does get annoy sometimes.

I want to know if someone else also reports this. I don't see this issue in this thread yet.

I see it every once in a while (like once every few days or so). But what you can try is pull off the battery cover and put it back on, top side first. So the 3.5mm and power buttons are the first that get covered. That has fixed a sensitive power button for others in the past and I'll likely add it to the FAQ.

Three issues:

1.) I noticed recently (last day or so), I cannot connect to my home wifi (nothing changed on router's end and my iphone connects no problems. I didn't change any settings except for doing system updates (firmware/prl/profile/etc).

2.) When in the ##3282## menu, I cannot get the "USB Charging" button to stick. I click commit changes, and it says "no changes made". How do I get this to work so I can charge via PC?

3.) Gmail app never pushes, always fetches once the phone is ON (as in the screen is on). How do I make it so that it pushes (ie data always connected)?

Thanks!

1) this actually happens a lot these days with all the devices jumping on and off WiFi. Try a few things here because I would bet that the 3D is using up all the DHCP leases. Reboot the router and connect everything, then go into your router's webpage and reserve ip addresses for each device so every time they connect they get the same ip address. Or you can just manually give the 3D a static ip address and all the subnet and gateway and dns info in advanced wifi settings.

2) you shouldn't have to do that to charge from a PC. Just plug it in and then choose charge only. It charges very slowly from a PC FYI, so you may think it isn't charging but it probably is.

3) did you turn off Always on Data?

2. The check only reflects what is set in Edit Mode, you can't change it or anything in View mode.

Had a long talk with Sprint about it - they have no service notes and suggested leaving it alone.

Always-on data is ENABLED. I don't know why it'll only fetch instead of push. I have never noticed the notification go "ring" whilst the screen is off, it's only upon starting the phone again is when I hear it.

Yes, although one thing I noticed was that I had the "only notify once" thing clicked, I disabled it so I'm notified with every email. Hopefully this changes something, otherwise I have overlooked everything everybody thus far has mentioned and is on par with what's set.

Default Dropping GPS signal....

Hey Guys and Gals,

I've had my EVO 3D now for close to 3 weeks. I traded in my day 1 EVO and overall I'm happy with the upgrade. Took a little getting used to as far as text size and the new Sense UI but I like it and everything seems to be up to snuff.

However, over the last couple of weeks I've had a chance to take it on a couple of trips to Minneapolis and Chicago and use the turn-by-turn navigation in Google maps. I first noticed an issue while navigating around Minneapolis.

Part 1:
On 2 separate days (mid morning, clear weather) while driving around and using Google maps the navigation would bark out "GPS signal lost" and then pause on the screen. 15-20 secs later it would reacquire the GPS signal and continue. It did this about 5 times in a 20 minute period before I asked my wife to start up Google navigation on her original day 1 EVO. Hers worked flawlessly while my 3VO dropped GPS signal several more times. I never thought much about and just chalked it up as an anomaly in the phone. I uninstalled Google maps and reinstalled it later that night hoping that would fix it.

Part 2:
We took a trip to Chicago earlier this week and I once again experienced this issue while coming home last night. 10-15 minutes after starting up Google maps navigation my 3VO starts barking "GPS signal lost", it pauses for 15-20 secs and then reacquires the signal. After about and 4 or 5 minutes it starts barking "GPS signal lost", pauses for 15-20 seconds and then continues as normal.. It did this over and over until I just shut it off and used my wifes EVO. Weather was clear with a full moon on the interstate heading south.

In the year that I had my orginal EVO I can think of maybe a couple of times that it lost the GPS signal. It always worked very well with almost no issues in navigation other than taking me to a wrong location (Googles fault).

Has anyone else had an issue like this or have an idea to fix?

It's definitely not just you having that GPS issue - I've moved your post here where you see and join in discussions on it (I've not followed the outcome, just the issue). Please scroll up to post #124 and go from there.

Hope this helps!

Has anyone seen an issue with the Home screen folders disappearing? These are the folders created by tapping "Personalize > Folder" I created four folders(util, bin, games and media) and two of them(util and bin) are now missing. Two duplicate app icons have appeared for an app that I placed in the media folder. That app is still in the media folder as well. If anyone has seen this behavior before on the EVO 3D or the EVO 4G and knows the solution please let me know.

Hmmm. I wonder if the folders are stored on the SD card (maybe in dotted directory) and the same thing that has apps on SD cards showing up without the right icon is at play here?

Try force-closing HTC Sense - but note you may have power-restart after trying this experiment if it fails - your choice.

Thanks EarlyMon, I did a search for "GPS" on this thread and didn't find anthing. I guess I should have read more through the thread before I posted...

I am glad I'm not the only one experiencing this issue though. Doesn't seem very widespread or people just aren't noticing it that much. Strange....

No worries, it's no secret: our search tool honestly sux.

Curious, do you have tower location activated in settings as well as GPS and have you noticed your signal bars when this happens?

A known trick for smartphones is to operate that way to overcome momentary loss of skyview or problems with reception - kind of a redundant signal strategy.

Also see if the problem is location based, could be a null due to interference.

Default Green Banding

I was out on my porch today and was going to take a picture with my 3d. I activated the camera and there was green banding all over the screen. I took a picture and it was in the picture so I would guess that it is some issue with the camera sensor.

After calling the sprint to see what my option were, and to get my MSL number, I went back to the sprint store to replace it and they said it was a defective screen and i could swap it out. I would have swapped it out right then, but there internet was down and they told me to come back tomorrow.

So I go home and look up how to improve my call quality with my MSL. I do that, restart the phone, call the wife and it sounds a little better, not much. Then I start to make this post and was going to get a screen shot of the green camera banding issure again, but poof! the problem has now gone. Everything looks normal.

I still want to replace the phone, because i am worried that it will happen again and be permanent. But I can't recreate the issue. However I still have the picture so hopefully they will still swap my phone out tomorrow.

Has anyone else had any green screen issues? I guess i will let you know how it turns out after I get back from the store tomorrow.

Here is the photo

Yep, others have had that problem, and NeoteriX made a good argument that it's a software issue and had that confirmed by HTC - details are here:

Error with the 3D camera (Green hue-video inside)

Scroll up and down in that thread to see the whole discussion.

Also - on just the screen, please see also - Fast changing pixels - banding - screen defects?

Hope this helps!
