On my HTC One I have a group with 218 contacts in it. I am using the stock app. I really like it and don't want to change, because it allows me to import group to bcc.
The email will not send. It tries to but says it can't send.
I can do it from my computer, and smaller groups (like 20) send fine.
Any thoughts from the experts?

Just to make sure I'm interpreting this correctly, you're trying to send an email, with the stock app, out to 218 people?

Default Turning off music at bootup

Is there a way, short of rooting or turning off the sound completely, to turn off the sound when the phone boots? It would be useful if you have to turn on the phone in the middle of the night to be able to do so quietly.

If you're forgetful, there's "Silent Boot"

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.antweb.silentboot

Doesn't work with all phones.

Are vibrate and silent treated the same on the Sprint One?
I could be wrong but in my brief 2 week stint with the One I thought I recalled having the phone on vibrate and I think it was still making start up sounds (original software, yadda yadda yadda)?

This is one of those options that can vary per carrier as in alot of cases each carrier modifies the boot animation and its options.

I have the Sprint One, and generally have my phone on vibrate. I have no start up sounds when it is on vibrate.

Thanks. I guess the memory of it is all a bit fuzzy at this point, being almost 9 months ago. I'm appalled at the length of time it has taken HTC to bring the One Max to market. After my hopes of getting the One were dashed I decided I'd hold on and wait for the then rumored One Max instead.

Default Physical power cut to reset HTC One?

My old HTC phone was just crashed by a Google Play update after I told the phone to install 22 recommended application updates. It locked up and turned off, but I was able to power it on. Then it locked up again, the charging indicator turned on, and the phone went cold. The procedure to power off the phone, by holding down the Power button until the device restarts, failed. Even after I unplugged the charging cable, the charging indicator light did not turn off.

The solution was to pull out the battery and reboot. Unfortunately, the HTC One doesn't appear to allow this solution without resorting to tearing the phone apart. Is there a pin switch somewhere on the motherboard of the HTC One that I could depress to physically disconnect the battery power?

there is no "kill switch" on the device.

short of physically disconnecting the battery from the phone, there is no other means to remove all power from what I know.

what are you trying to do? what is the issue that you think you need to remove power?

im sure you can solve any software issues by doing a factory reset.

Are you rooted?

what carrier?

I'm surprised holding down the power button didn't reset the phone, since that is a kernel-level kill switch (of sorts) that simulates a battery pull. Did the capacitive buttons start flashing at some point while you were holding down the power button?

I think "other" means "everything which isn't music, pictures or apps". My "other" is smaller than your (about 9GB) but from the size I infer that some of it is system files, some of it is other personal data which don't fit those few media categories (e.g. backups). It's not a very helpful category since it clearly mixes stuff you can change and stuff you can't.

BTW Grettz is as new here as you are. Let me welcome you both

Once you format the drive, some of that space is lost. if what you are asking for is, what is taking up the 12.43 GB listed under Other, we can't really tell. You can install a file manager (I use Astro, but there are a ton out there), and have a look around that way. You still won't be able to see everything unless you are rooted.

Everyone's amount under Other is going to be different. On my Sprint HTC One, I have been running it since shortly after it was launched, and never wiped it. Right now, I have only 6.3GB listed under Other.

There are a number of cleanup utilities out there, which might help. Of course, just using the built in Make More Space option in the Storage settings, might be enough to clean it up for you.

If I am misunderstanding your question, I apologize.

To get the rest of the Linux commands without root, check out "BusyBox Non-Root"

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=burrows.apps.busybox

To get a way to enter commands -

Check out "Android Terminal Emulator"

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jackpal.androidterm

Open the Terminal Emulator, enter this command -

df

Then post the screen shot of it here. Best way to do that -

Check out "Android Forums"

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tapatalk.androidforumscom

That will list storage to each of your filesystems and bypass the ambiguities of user-level tools trying to be friendly about the real statistics.

Then we may provide better answers.

It's basically a new phone from Verizon. I only have a few applications installed, although I would like to get rid of the Verizon-bundled applications that refuse to be deleted and seem to be taking up a lot of disk space.

The charging-indicator light stayed on, but the capacitive buttons were dark. I've had this problem before with other hardware. One device was a new DVD recorder that crashed, and holding the power button down for 15 seconds as instructed did not turn off the power; I resorted to pulling the plug from the wall socket. Another device was a printer that crashed and refused to respond to the power button, which I also fixed by pulling the plug. Yet another problem happened on my desktop PC, which didn't come up from Sleep correctly and subsequently froze, and the power button likewise refused to respond; it would flash, but the system wouldn't turn off.

That's why reset buttons are important. They used to be standard on PCs and other handheld devices, but now everything seems to be going to soft-touch buttons that aren't connected to a circuit. Many manufacturers are overlooking this important feature, but when the soft-switch fails, you're screwed without a screwdriver and some time to break into the battery compartment.

As this incident has reminded me of why I like access to the battery, I think that I just became a Samsung customer. I know a bunch of people who are very happy with their Samsung phones, and I feel so left out without their Touch feature. Upgrade time! HTC has a nice product in the HTC One, and I really like the fancy speakers, but HTC could have done a better job with the battery design.

10 seconds hold on the power button ought to perform a board level hardware reset.

Yours does not??

There are people at xda who report this only working if the phone is in a bright environment. Now my phone's buttons start flashing even if I cover the light sensor, so I don't think they are all like that, but there's nothing to lose in trying it.

Not long after getting my One I was puzzled by both available ram (1.5/2.0 gb) and available storage (22.0/32.0 gb). There was no way I'd used 10 gb of storage, and I expected to see the full 2.0 gb of ram, so I queried it with HTC support. Both apparent discrepancies are due to system usage and storage.

According to HTC, the user has 1.5 gb of ram available and 24.0 gb of storage available, and looking at my current status I reckon that most, if not all, of the system storage is in 'other'.

Thanks, Earlymon. That's ideal. I wanted something I didn't have to think about and that wouldn't turn off all the sounds. Thanks too for your suggestion, Mactronnix.

So i just bought a HTC1, my first android phone and i think i have made a huge mistake. its horrendous. i have never used a phone that need so much work in my life. the stock email client doesn't DL all my emails, the text client looks like something from the 10 years ago, the so called phone book which they call people has so much info that i don't have nor do i need on people and the large grey boxes of non faces look horrible. it all seems to be centered around FB and twitter and again i have no interest in. the top bar has a notification saying i have 255 VM but my VM is off and i can't get rid of that, the stock calendar has no month written on it only 10, or 9 ect ect. why on earth would you not write the name of the month?? and the list just goes on and on. im really hoping something changes here bc i like the look and feel of the phone and the screen size but i have to say if this is what android is about its a nightmare and way too much work. im looking through these threads ect for answers but this is going to have a very short life for me if this is the amount of work i have to do to to operate this phone.

Hi The U,

You've a long list of things there, and I can't address all of them. For some, such as your email problem, it would probably be helpful to post again with more information (who your email provider is, for example), perhaps even start a dedicated thread.

On the phone book, yes, there are a lot of fields, but if you don't fill them you won't see them except if you edit the contact. For most of mine if I click on the contact I just get a list of phone numbers and a couple of personalisation options (e.g. ringtone for that person. The placeholder for a photo is normal on android (in some views it's bigger with the HTC software than some others, but I've also seen uglier on other versions). Most of my contacts don't have photos, and while I remember this being a bit annoying when I got my first Android I don't really notice it now. I don't use FB or Twitter, and don't notice anything about them in my phonebook (there is an "updates" tab in the person details, but I only just discovered that while looking to see what annoyance I might be missing!). So I can tell you from experience that it's perfectly possible to just use this as a phonebook without any social networking stuff.

If you go into settings > apps > all you can select apps like FB and Twitter which you don't wish to use and disable them (click on the app in the list and there should be a "disable" button). If you do that they disappear from the app drawer, and the only place you'll see them is in that settings menu. That may tidy things up a bit for you.

I don't use the stock calendar app (I think I have probably removed or disabled it). There are many alternatives in the Play Store, and there are many threads about calendar apps in our Android Applications section (search that forum for "calendar" and you'll find plenty of options and discussions). I mainly use Business Calendar, but always have at least 3 calendar apps on my phone. Which app is best depends on your tastes (e.g. I use agenda views a lot, month views rarely, so what works best for me might not be what works for you).

Similarly for messages, if you don't like the stock app there are many replacements available in the Play Store (some of which offer a lot of options for customising the appearance). Just turn off notifications in the stock app's settings so that you don't get 2 notifications for every message which arrives. I'm currently using the stock app, but with my previous phone was using Chomp, before that Pansi, before that Go SMS or Handcent. Pick an app you like, set it up how you like, then forget about it and just use it.

I've never heard of that voicemail notification issue. Hopefully someone else will have a suggestion. It could be the fact that voicemail is off that's making clearing it difficult (if the phone received the wrong signal from the network, and you can't enter the VM system to get the flag cleared because it's disabled? Just guessing here).

You don't say what system you used before, but a new platform can require a bit of adjustment, especially if you are used to things working a particular way. I find that if I make a major change (e.g. changing to a completely different ROM) I notice the things that appear worse quicker than I spot the improvements). My first rule is always to explore the settings in whatever app I'm using - remember also that a long press is equivalent of a right-click with a mouse, and often brings up other options. My second is that if the built-in app doesn't do things the way I want, there will be alternatives available that I can use instead (I use HTC's phonebook, messages and camera apps, but use alternatives for pretty much everything else).

Good luck

Thanks for the reply, i use my yahoo email which i have had for years and years and i have come for using iphones. what i don't understand with this is the basic android OS seems to suck and everyone has to go looking to find better apps to replace what's not very good as it comes on the phone. also while looking around to replace these said shortfalls a lot of people review the app and say is no good only works with a certain phone or it seems to do only part of what you're trying to replace. its just at this point and it could be an unfair statement that this is not an easy phone to use and is a lot of work. will it run fine once set up?? i have no clue bc im so far from being anywhere near that ballpark right now. im seeing and hearing put this launcher on and it will change this and do that to change that and i just have no clue how to keep up with it at this point. i do have a question though?? how many launchers can you have on your phone at once?? and its also telling me to wipe the old launcher which i take is sense clean but i dont know how to do this and if its in the top of the phone, then it wont let me swipe them away. also what is this app try?? what's if for and what's its function?? between there and my home pages i see apps repeated over and over. whats the point of that?? sorry for so many questions but this seems very odd to me at this point.

Hi, The U,

On the voicemail issue if you go into settings --> Call, there is an option to clear voicemail notifications. Have you tried that ?

Hi, I might be able to help with your Yahoo email too. I have Yahoo set up in the stock app and it works fine. I'm sure it picked up the server details automatically. What problems are you having with your mail ?

If you need to input them manually the settings I have are :-

htc.imap.mail.yahoo.com. SSL Port 993

htc.smtp.mail.yahoo.com. SSL Port 465

Hope this helps.

PS. Be patient, the One is a fantastic phone !! Well...I think so anyway

Hi, if you go into the app menu --> settings --> sync, send & receive there is a download option that defaults to 3 days. There are options up to All.

Hi The U,

Hope you see this although you may have sussed it by now. You made a point about the calendar showing just 9, 10 etc and not month by name.

If you go into main settings --> Date and time, change the format there and it is reflected in all appearances, including the calendar.

Once again thank you for your help gentleman. i guess this is a learning curve that can be overcome. the only thing im not very impressed with is the stock stuff it comes with that needs to be replaced seems to be a lot and i think it may be a lot of trial and error in finding stuff to replace the stock issues i dont like.

I did wonder whether it might have been an iPhone. To be honest a lot is to do with what you are used to. For example, I find the One easier to use than an iPhone. I find iOS frustrating when I use it (e.g. helping family members with iPads) because it seems so inflexible and some operations are so long-winded. But I know that part of my frustration is just that I'm used to doing things in different ways. They key to success is learning how things work (and with android there's often more than one way of doing something), rather than just assuming that what you are used to is "right" - I've had to make that adjustment myself more than once!

Personally I'd say it's better to describe what you find awkward rather than just saying that something sucks, because the latter wastes time - people have to ask what it is that sucks before they can suggest a solution. And you don't have to replace anything, it's a matter of preference. For example, you don't like the look of the SMS app. If you install Chomp SMS then out of the box it looks very iPhone like, which I'm guessing you'd be OK with, though you can change it. Now I was using Chomp previously (except I'd turned the bubbles off completely and was using different coloured text on a black background for my conversations, so it actually looked quite different from iOS), but actually am now using the stock messaging app precisely because it looked different to what I was using before. And if I get bored then at some point in the future I can change it again. So there's no need to use a different app - it works, and many people are fine with it - but you can if you prefer something else. You have options

I'd also note that many of the system apps are HTC versions - you'd get different versions on say a Samsung or a Sony. If you really want the pure Android version, you need a Nexus device (though the Google versions of some of these apps are also available in the Play Store).

Launchers: well you can have as many as you want, but obviously only one is needed at a time. I just choose one, usually close all others (if you can't see them in the recent apps then settings > apps > all, select app and "force close") then don't worry about it. In the old days I'd have done all of that "wipe other launchers" stuff, but I've never bothered with the One - the system has enough resources and can look after itself fine, and even if it starts the HTC launcher in the background some time it will just be dormant and will drop out of memory because it's not used. I know for sure that other launchers are not using significant resources on my phone, so don't worry about them. I'd see how you get on with the Sense launcher, and if not then Nova or Apex are my preferred alternatives (they are rather similar in what they can do, both being based on the stock Android launcher, so one or the other is fine).

I guess you mean the "app tray", which I think of as the "app drawer" (so I'll probably use both terms!). This is a big difference from iOS. With iOS all of your apps live one one of your homepages (either directly or in a folder). With android you can do that if you want, but it's optional. You can also have apps which don't appear on any of your homescreens. The app drawer is a shortcut to all of your apps, whether on the homepages or not. Ironically, it's one way in which the android UI is closer to a Mac than the iOS one: on a Mac you can put app icons on your desktop if you want, but don't have to, and you will also have an "Applications" folder in your Dock. Well the "app tray" is equivalent to that Applications folder. So you can just put the most regularly used apps on your homescreens, but have access to the others when you do need them via the app drawer. Some launchers have the option of hiding an app in the app drawer if you've placed it on the desktop, but personally I find that more confusing so never do that.

In fact I'm an extreme case: I don't keep a single app launcher on my desktops. I have shortcuts to folders with my most important apps in a dock, and I have the app drawer for everything else, and only use my desktops for widgets (clock, calendar, music controls, system info, live train timetables, etc). Most people do keep at least a few app launchers on their desktops, some treat it like an iPhone and just cover their desktops with launchers. Some even treat their desktops as artworks and keep them mainly empty. I personally think it's one of the strengths of the Android system that you have all of these options, rather than having to use an approach that somebody else has decided is the best.

Finally, I'm sorry to say I've never used Yahoo so can't really offer much advise on that problem (Edit: but I see that tommo has in the meanwhile! )

The U.. i understand your frustration coming from iphone.. honestly.. when i use an iphone.. i feel like i am moving back in time.. its too simple.. sometimes to the point of dumb.. and when i say dumb.. why have a nice wallpaper or background.. and cover it up with all these ugly icons.. and folders.. after using android, i usually tell my iphone friends, give it a few weeks.. before giving up..

i am like you.. i dont like the HTC messaging app. i personally use Handcent.. have from the beginning.. there are actual themes out there, that people have created to make them look like an iphone.. lol.. however.. it is 100% customizable.. the text style.. the colors of the bubbles, the main message list.. the colors of the text.. everything.. the height and size of numbers.. and letters..

unlike iphone.. all of your apps are in the app drawer.. most apps, ironically come with a widget, of some sort.. you can put on your main screen.. remember.. android has multiple screens.. you can customize however you want.. my home screen, has the clock widget, and 4 folders.. one for games.. one for social, one for email, and one for music.. these 4 folders are at the bottom above my dock. the rest is a nice background.. however on my dock.. i got 4 things.. internet on the left, phone to the left center.. then handcent on the right center, and play store on the right.. thats all..

thats the beauty of android.. if you dont like what it stock.. you can customize it however you want.. unlike iphone.. ur stuck with it.. if you dont like an app, either remove it.. or hide it if you dont want it showing.. you dont like the stock app.. get a better one in the play store.. you dont like the stock keyboard.. download any other keyboard.. have as many keyboards you want on your phone.. switch from one to the other in a second.. if you dont like the one you downloaded.. delete it.. keep it.. and try another one.. till you find what you like.. and make your phone.. yours.. customized how you want.. with your own shortcuts.. your own design, your own everything..

everyone here is glad to help.. with anything you need help with.. there seems to be someone on this thread all the time.. so answers come quick as well..

Default HTC Share problem with other phones.

I'm having a problem sharing my photos via "HTC Share". This may be a Rezound specific problem so I apologize in advance if this is the wrong forum for the question.

I like to share my photos from my One using HTC Share and always text a link to the gallery to my family members, nearly all of whom are running HTC phones. For some reason, neither the Rezound nor the Incredible are able to open the links in the stock browser. I've tried playing around with the advanced settings to no avail.

I have, however, been able to get it working using Chrome on the Rezound phones (haven't tried on the Incredible).

Now this is an extremely minor problem as I have the Chrome workaround. I'm posting this mainly out of curiosity.

One would think that a web-based HTC service would work on a stock HTC browser. Particularly where the Rezound isn't terribly old and Chrome can render the images. It even works on my brother's iPhone 4.

Any ideas?

htc share is just a link shared with the recipient. once you send your share from the phone it goes to htc's servers and the phone no longer plays a part in it.
test with another device or even a random email to see if results are different.

Default re-order the list for "sharing"

When I want to "share" something a menu pops up that lets me choose amongst all the installed apps capable of sharing. However I see now way to select the order of these apps, so the ones I actually use frequently are not at the top, but dispersed through out the list.

Is there a way to re-order this list to my own liking with Sense?

Default How to add more than one mobile field

Hi.
Just got an HTC One and for the life of me I can't figure out a way to add more than 1 mobile phone number to a contact, because I can only see 1 mobile phone field with no option to add another.

How do I do it?

when in the contact, to the right of the section labeled "phone" (or any other section other than "phone"), you should see a "+" sign. click that.

I did that. It lets you add more fields, but no more option for "Mobile". Only stuff like Work, Work Fax, Home Fax, Pager, etc.

What service are you trying to sync your contacts to? We discovered a while back in this thread or a similar one that the options you get depend on what service you are syncing to...

Adding more Mobile numbers is not an option in my Phone contacts either, it's not just palancas7, but the Mobile label option IS available when editing a Google contact. Custom option is also available. I've changed a few Phone contacts into Google contacts so that I can add more than one mobile number. Just send the phone contact to yourself by SMS or email and save it as a Google contact then edit it. You can delete the original contact if necessary.

Reference to Google contacts was in a thread some time ago which is more than likely what GuitarG20 remembers.

So, if they are Phone contacts I can't add more than 1 mobile?

This is what I get.

Well I guess it depends on how many of your Phone contacts you want to add more than one mobile number to. It only takes a couple of minutes to change a contact from Phone to Google and edit it.

I only had a few so it was quick and easy.

Or if you create a new contact you should have the option to select Google as the contact type. Just create a duplicate and then delete the original.

I find having the Custom label option the most useful.

Possibly a dumb question but is the stock keyboard the same as the Jelly Bean keyboard? I ask as I only have the one option where I was expecting two to choose from (HTC and Jelly Bean)

Welcome to the forums!

The phone only comes with the HTC Keyboard. You can download the google keyboard from the play store (i think you referred to it as the jb keyboard) if you want to use it.

Is there any way to disable the SMS notification when you have the messaging app open?

I'm a semi-long time iPhone user and I'm used to the quiet "woosh" sound it makes when you have a message thread open and receive a new message from that contact. If I have an active messaging conversation going on with someone, I don't want my phone to sound off with the full blown notification every few seconds when a new message comes in.

Are any settings/tweaks or anything that can do this? If not, are there any third party SMS applications that can do this?

Thanks!
