Default How to change SMS tone?

I just got the HTC One and was curious how you change the SMS Notification tone, I just realized that Notification Tone alone doesn't change when you get a SMS I am tired of this old tone already.

system Settings, Sounds should let you set ringtone and notification tone. Also, most apps let you specify the notification tone either to default or to a specific tone for that app.

I believe the setting for SMS ringtone is in settings in the SMS app itself.

Go to Messaging App then the 3 dots in the Upper right hand corner then Settings then Notifications and then Notification Sound.

right... you can set a default notification sound in the system settings. then in each app you can set them as well, either specifying "default" or a specific one. Most SMS apps also let you specify a specific notification per contact as well.

WELCOME TO ANDROID FORUMS Jim_Ladd:



The 3G icon should look something like what's depicted here:

http://forums.androidcentral.com/attachments/htc-one/66636d1367361442t-change-icon-color-white-notification-bar-uploadfromtaptalk1367361438970.jpg

However,some slight variances have been noted in some carrier-specific models for some notification bar icons.

Jim,

There is an icon on your desktop that links to an online operators manual for the device. The icon descriptions are located there.

If you are new to android, please look over the faq and spend a little time reading threads here.

You are welcome to send me an offline message and I can help you get your feet wet if need be.

I get 4G (not LTE) occaisionally at my house. Then the symbol swaps to E , but never 3G ( My Dads iPhone says 3G ). If I go to the city I get 4G LTE.

Do I have it turned off some how? I have AT&T.

That's true, unless you have a carrier-branded one, in which case they will look different.

For example, the AT&T Model will say E, 4G, or 4G LTE.

Perhaps "E" means EVDO which is 3G.

No. EVDO is a CDMA term (Sprint, Verizon). Most likely E stands for Edge.

No, you're fine. AT&T reports what we used to refer to as 3G (which is HSPA/HSPA+) as "4G" now (its a marketing ploy of some sort), and LTE (which is actual 4G) as "4G LTE". Edge is still "E"

The reason the iPhone reports 3G is that it's probably from back before at&t started changing their marketing (lying in my book, but that's just me) about what signal is what generation.

any screen within the booted OS,simply hold power and tap the "home" softkey. youll have to do tis almost simultaneously,pressing the power button slightly first.

pressing power and holding it too long before hitting home key will bring up the power off/reboot menu

Default The Phone app, display (US) State on incoming calls?

New to Android and HTC one. Can't see where or how to do this.

My previous phones, when an incoming call is from a number not in a contact list, would display the State, the call originated from, as in:
201-555-1212 -New Jersey,
Or with an additional app (Palm OS), would also display the city associated with the exchange:
610-555-1212 - Pennsylvania/Allentown.

Is this (popping up the the state) a setting that I've missed? Is there an app to do it? Preferably one that doesn't sniff all your incoming caller numbers...

I had this same issue (using Exchange Server). The only work-around I could find is to remove the Sent and Deleted folders from the Synced items. This keeps them from being automatically synced, but I can still click on those folders and pull up any idea in them. It just takes a bit longer to load, as they haven't constantly been syncing in the background. However, after doing this I no longer have the issue I had as it always just defaults to the only folder I have synced - Inbox.

Hopefully HTC has a resolution - it's inconvenient for work when I'm waiting for my Sent Items to load, as they could be hundreds per day. Not a deal-breaker as I don't do it often, but still inconvenient.

Default Call history and recent calls.

Hello all. Long time reader, however this is my first post as well as my first HTC phone. My question is two fold.

1. Is there not a way to erase all of the call history with out having to manually check a box to next to each dialed/received/missed call?

2. When done making a call, and I want to go back into the phone to make another why does it automatically load to the phone dial pad? Is there not a way to have this phone go straight to favorites or recent history?

Thank you for any help

1. In the stock dialer, swipe to the left to get to the call history tab. press the three dots, remove call history. Tick one of the numbers in the list, tap the three dots, select all.

2.from the phone dial pad, swipe to the right to get to the people tab.

WELCOME TO ANDROID FORUMS,Cactusjack!



To answer your questions:

1) Go to phone>call history & tap on the 3-dot icon in the upper right corner.Tap "remove call history.Then,tap on the 3-dot icon again & you'll see an option to "select all".Then @ the bottom of the page press "delete" & you're done

2) Go to phone & press on the 3-dot icon.Select "edit tabs".
Long press on the tab on the right side(where the 3 lines are) & hold on & arrange the tabs in the order you desire.The one in the middle should be the default view when opening up the phone.

Looks like the option to change the default screen in the phone is going to persist on opening up to the dialer.

The closest you can get to that is re-arranging the other options you desire to the left & right of the dialer.

My apologies for the misinformation.

You'll probably be able to find a dialer replacement app in the GOOGLE PLAY STORE that has a bit more flexibility,if you desire.

I myself have never cared for replacement dialers,but perhaps others who've had more experience w/such will have some suggestions.

I thought I was doing something wrong again after trying your suggestion. I'd rather not import another dialer, as this phones stock one is fine. I guess I've just gotten used to having a phone that opens up to the last function I was using. THANKS AGAIN

Could be incompatible, sorry about that.

The Store's claim of compatibility isn't reliable, unfortunately.

I'll see if I can find a better option, if you see one first, please post back.

Default HTC Fast Boot

Anyone know of the PROS-CONS of the FAST BOOT option?

[SETTINGS>POWER>FAST BOOT>Start up and shut down quickly]

FWIW,I think the phone starts up & shuts down quickly enough w/o the option enabled.I fail to see any added benefit of the option other than to shave a few seconds off of each,hence the question.

THX!

Fastboot causes more harm than good. App cache isn't emptied, and some things can get tangled (Early Mon's word I've taken as my own ) up in this fastboot environment. The more 3rd party apps running can also cause more issues. This doesn't happen upon every reboot but if you're trying to troubleshoot and using fastboot, it may not make things better and may not clear the issue...

HTC would have fastboot ticked from fresh out of the box on earlier handsets but it's nice to see they have it disabled upon out of the box status on this flagship device...

My previous phones, when an incoming call is from a number not in a contact list, would display the State, the call originated from, as in:

Is this (popping up the the state) a setting that I've missed? Is there an app to do it?

And the app store shows "...compatible with your Sprint HTC One." Am I supposed to reboot or restart something? Or maybe it really doesn't work with an HTC One?
App incompatibility is sometimes an issue w/new phones,especially if they're sporting tech that hasn't been seen on another handset.

We've seen this w/the AMAZON ANDROID APP STORE application,& the issue has since been resolved.

An e-mail to the application developer would be a step in the right direction to getting this resolved.

Default How to select multiple photos from gallery and whatsap

my old android phone use to allow me to select multiple photos all at once but simply long hold one pic, then checking off the rest of the pics that i want to use to send via email or whats app. however that doesn't seem to work with the One.

Also i use to be able to select multiple photos to send directly from whatsapp, now i can only do it one at a time.
is there some way around this?

thanks!

So I emailed the developer. Got back a short reply, with an ambiguous answer:

I said: It doesn't appear to work on my phone. Do you know if this is supposed to be compatible with an U.S. HTC One, Andriod 4.1.2, HTC Sense 5.0.?

Response: "The app will show a overlay when you receive a call. It will show the location of the caller only when you receive a call."

I can interpret that to mean it should as far as we know. So my conclusion is look elsewhere. And be very cautious of all the over the top permissions on these caller ID apps, especially the ones coming from (what look to be) various eastern europe locales.

Ok, I know that there's another app for this, I recall seeing it in another one of our forums a few months back. I'll check again.

Agree with you on your permission ideas btw.

Default Can the lock screen only be brought up by the lock button?

With the htc one is it possible to bring up the lock screen other than with the lock button? I have tried the phone numerous times inshore and I think this was the only way I could get the screen to show when the phone was not being used.

With such a bad spot(IMO) for the lock button is there any other way to bring up the lock screen? Volume buttons???

Default HTC ONE Power Button Alternatives/Volume Rocker Actions

Yeah,it'd be nice if such options were baked-in vs. loading up another app.

I'm guessing there's an app that'll allow the volume rocker to do what you're looking for as well.

Speaking of volume rocker,is there a setting to change the action of the volume rocker when receiving a call?

Seems hitting the volume rocker will answer an in-coming call w/o any way of changing this action.I'd like to be able to lower the volume of the ringtone instead of answering the call.

THX!

Default Google Now

When I first got this phone a long press on the home button would bring up Google Now. Now that I have a bit of time to try and learn the Google Now app the long press no longer brings it up. It goes to a Google search. Could it have gone away b/c I kept ignoring it? Any ideas on how to get it to come back?

Default HTC ONE & GOOGLE NOW Shortcut

GOOGLE SEARCH & GOOGLE NOW are basically the same thing,but,I think you're referring to a direct link to VOICE SEARCH.Seems the action you're describing was present on my phone @ one time,but,I can't get the long-press action to open directly to VOICE SEARCH anymore,but......

If you go to GOOGLE SEARCH,scroll down to the bottom of the page & press on the 3-dot icon,which opens up a menu,press SETTINGS > VOICE > & select "HOTWORD DETECTION".

Then,the next time you long press to open GOOGLE SEARCH,just speak the word "GOOGLE" & VOICE SEARCH will be open.

If you're using an aftermarket launcher such as APEX/HOLO/NOVA,you should be able to set-up a long-press profile for the home key to open up to just about any application or shortcut imaginable.

Thanks, I actually found it in the available widgets as well and when I put the widget on a screen the long press on the home button now works again. Again, I appreciate all your help

Hmm... I did not know that stuff was in that menu.

That said, have either of you noticed that google now is malfunctioning slightly?
I use the timer in it often and I just long press and "Google set timer for xxxxx"

It acks by saying "setting alarm", the text is the exact command I gave but the timer will be for like 1 hour.... 8 hours or something

Just behaving odd the last few days.

Default (Resolved) Twitter has synced all the people I follow to my 'people' list

I recently got the new HTC One and I have been using twitter on it since I bought the phone. I'm not sure what I pressed, but suddenly all the people I follow on twitter have synced over to my 'people' list. All the people from twitter have little twitter symbols below their names. I've tried going to settings > accounts and sync > twitter and turning sync off, and it was already turned off. Help please!

Welcome, jakea. Congratulations on your new One.

Unwanted syncing can happen with a configuration error by the user either at the site or on the device. I'd check both (you say you've already checked the device.. be sure to hit all syncing apps/widget areas).

I'd even go so far as to see if it repeats after clearing all the data from those apps and rebooting. That'll probably take care of things as long as you are careful about your settings.

The HTC One is pretty new.. I hope we're not talking about a quality control bug in some of them.
