Yep...First download the latest version of the Play Store.

The new version is horribly pale green and personally I don't like it.

Anyway it's version 4.0.26 and you can get it from:
Androidheadlines.com/2013/04/google-play-gets-updated-to-v4-0-26-get-your-apk-here.html

After downloading, you will have to go into your Security settings and tick the option for "Unknown Devices" allowing you to install apps from outside the Play Store.

then install it from your Downloads folder

It looks quite good actually if you use facebook a lot.
Didn't allow it to always load "always" instead of Sense 5 so I could switch it off.

I uninstalled it today actually...

Tell me what you think.

I have a Vodafone Contract HTC One...It gets rid of all Vodafone recommendations too...the version I had installed previously was 3.1 something...way behind the stock version...As it treats it as an upgrade you can always uninstall Play Store too if you want.

Default 3 part question: Dialer, Go SMS, and Yahoo!

Loving the phone so far...

I noticed that when I'm making a call and I have to go through a phone tree or a queue and I have to hit the "1" on the keypad there's some contact options pop-up window that comes up. Can I disable this?

Second, I got really excited about the native Yahoo support in the Sense 5.0 mail, but how do I enable push notification? Right now it is set to Smart Sync and I don't see any "push" options.

Lastly, I'm using Go Pro as my sms, since I like the emoji kb and also having individual text alerts sounds for certain contacts. Is there anyway to disable the text notification sounds when I'm in the app and having a text conversation? If the app is open, everytime that person responds to a text, the notification sound plays, very annoying. I'd much rather use the built in Messages up if they supported those two feature (emoji and notifications)

Thanks!

1. not that I am aware of.

2. native HTC email app does not support push it seems. this may be addressed in a future update. perhaps open a ticket with HTC and advise them you need yahoo push support on their native client. you can install the yahoo app from the store and that will give you push. I know the EVO lte has push
support for yahoo in the htc app.

3. send the dev of the app an email.

Loving the One so far, two days in. But when I send a text to my wife's phone (917) 555-1212 it doesn't arrive up on her phone. A minute later I get a text message saying my "message was successfully delivered to an answering machine or voicemail at (817) 555-1212. Thanks for using Text to Landline!" What could be causing this?

broadway, you sent an SMS message to a LANDLINE phone. Sprint converted the SMS to voice as it detected it was calling a landline phone.

re check the number you sent the SMS too..

Take a look at the numbers again. I sent the text message to my wife's cell, a 917 area code. But I'm being told it was sent to an 817 area code (obviously someone's land line.) When she sends a text to me the alert at the top indicates it came from her 917 number, but the actual message appears under the thread for an 817 contact. Very weird.

Switched to Chomp SMS. Much much much much nicer. Still has the annoying notification sounds while in a chat. I emailed support and they got RIGHT BACK TO ME TODAY. Said it's not a function... yet. They noted feedback, whatever that means. Hopefully they address it in the future.

On a side note, I setup my ME.COM (apple icloud) email and it was BEYOND easy. Just had to enter my email address and Sense Mail did the rest!! Very nice!!

What I can tell you for sure is the system sent your SMS to a landline phone. This is why you received the return message.

I saw your numbers bolded.

Was the number ported from another carrier, or did it used to be a landline possibly? I know we recently in the last year changed our landline over to a Sprint cell based number.

P.S. Broadway/Mods I'd recommend removing the wife's actual phone number from the prior post before/after this gets resolved. Protecting your personal data is important in these days.

You are mostly correct. It will not push the mail however you can setup a time frame for it to refresh. If you use a low time it will eat up more battery life. You can also have it sync mail when you open the app. Just enter your username and password it should setup for you. Then go to settings and make changes for how you want the email to behave.

Was this an error? setting a lower time should NOT use more battery power.

I probably should have worded that better. If you set the email to check more frequently it will eat up battery. Say setting it to check every 15 minutes vs. every hour. Every 15 will use more battery. sorry for the confusion.

Default Loving the one so far but.....

I went from a desire to a one X that was plagued by the WiFi antenna problem. As it was out of guarantee, I went for the upgrade to a one. All good so far but two initial observations. I'm missing the recent apps button. I used this all the time (also on the nexus 7). Also i hate the metro type desktop. What are others thoughts on this and what are the workarounds?

I used the apex frontend on the one X but if I use that again am I just replicating my one X! I thought I would try the new HTC Sense for a bit.

Interested to hear what you have to say.

Cheers

Daz

My prior T-Mobile HTC myTouch 4G had a HTC mail widget. The HTC One doesn't seem to have one. Is that true?

Does anyone know how to enable swype? I enabled the trace keyboard but seems a little sluggish and I prefer swype but can't figure out how to get it working or is it considered the same thing in the Ones mind

settings/language & keyboard/tap on "swype".

does that not enable it for you?

when you are doing something that requires keyboard, you get the keyboard icon up top on the screen. tick it and you will also see your keyboard list populate there also.

Default Waking HTC One

I recently got the HTC One and I really like the phone but I'm kinda worried because it only has one wake button that turns the phone on. I don't want the button to wear out. Is there a way to use the volume buttons so I can wake the phone? Also is the a way for the screen to turn on if I see a notification instead of just a sound/vibrate?

I wouldn't worry about it only having one way to wake the screen, it's designed to be pressed thousands of times, so I'm sure it will be fine.

If you're that worried, I'm sure Widget Locker has an option to wake the screen with the volume buttons.

Re the notifications, you could use something like Lite Flow to handle notifications as opposed to the stock apps? You can configure that to have the LED flash for notifications so you know when something is waiting for you. There's also an option to have the screen turn on as well.

So that's it as far as I know... This is my 3rd HTC phone, I've had the Hero and Evo 3D, both for at least a year and a half each, and I've never had a problem with the power button for waking the phone and powering on/off. Never had a problem with the volume buttons either, for that matter.

I concur. I have had the HTC Mogul, Touch Pro, Touch Pro2, Hero, Evo 4g, Evo 3D, EVO 4G LTE, and now the One and I have never had an issue with the Power or Volume Buttons.

Default How do you save an email address?

In the native email app how do you save the email address from the sender? I'm sure I'm missing something obvious but for the life of me I can't figure it out.

in the email, where your address is, there should be an arrow on the right hand side of the grey bar that has your e-dress in it. click on the down arrow, you should see the email participants. tap on the e-dress you want to save, you should see a list of options.

Default Couple questions from a soon to be HTC One owner

First of all hi I'm new to these forums. Ok now here are my questions.

I already ordered my HTC One and HTC car kit from T-Mobile yesterday and am patiently waiting for it.

I have had the Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant for 3 years keeping it because I couldn't find a worthy upgrade, now I am VERY excited for a new phone. The Vibrant has been great the first year but now it just lags, is slow, force closes everything I open, keyboard lags every second, camera is very slow, I've even factory reset a couple times and the same problems occur days after reset, Facebook, Instagram, and mostly every app I use just doesn't respond at all, I've just had it.

Now question is, will this HTC One be a big upgrade for me? The last upgrade I've been on is Froyo so surely Android is much further along now. Is there still lag? Are there still problems that occur as commonly as these first gen Android devices as my Vibrant?

Second, I know that the One has some sort of transfer method but I have an old phone so I don't think it works. Will I just have to copy everything from my SD card and phone to my computer?

I also want to mention battery life, my Vibrant would go from 100% to %10 with moderate use in 2 hours, something I'm tired of.
I'm really hoping the HTC One will impress me.

Thanks.

had the One since launch day.. while i like the phone.. i like the new blacked out widgets and such.. there are a few things that i really dont like..

1. i dont like the fact that Facebook has taken over my gallery.
2. i like blink feed, its all fine, i just made my home screen different
3. the menu button.. i liked where i could set one of the capacitive buttons was the menu. lose alot of screen space with the 3dot menu button
4. not very intuitive on the changing the lower buttons.. but i managed.. also.. seemed to struggle with removing apps from a folder..
5. also, not happy bout the dang wifi popup whenever i go into some apps.

1 . turn off that option in the gallery settings
2. Yep not for everyone. I quite fancy it
3. Devs need to update their apps.
4. No issues with that. Care to elaborate?
5. Turn that off in wifi advanced settings

@dgrobe :-),


I never said I had a solution to make the one behave like the htc Evo 4G LTE. different sense versions. Your post didn't suggest that you were looking for a way to have the gallery behave like an older device...

You are welcomed to root your device to gain certain functions back that you miss. There is a rooting subsection to assist you with that if interested.

Default Completely new with Android, HTC One as my first device; looking for some tips?

I guess this can serve as my introductory thread as it's my first post on these forums. I came from the apple ecosystem, owning a iPod 1G, iPod 2G, iPhone 4, thus leading to the end of my contract; therefore I recently ordered and received my sleek new HTC One.

I have absolutely no idea how to completely take advantage of the customization provided on the Android platform, though I did jailbreak all of my past iDevices. I have a couple questions that I'd rather ask the community in real time than simply read a thread. I decided to post here instead.

What are the advantages of gaining root access to your phone?
What are some useful vanilla tweaks or apps that I can find on the google play store?
Is there a "find my iPhone" style service for Android?
Are you able to change the wallpaper for home/lockscreen separately?
What deterred you from getting other phones (iPhone 5, SG4) and made you get this?
How have you been enjoying your new HTC One?

I hope that I will continue to contribute to these forums, and hope for a good time with Android.

Hi and welcome!

As for me I eventually want to root just because it's MY phone why shouldn't I have root access to my phone and all the goodies that come to rooting that I wouldn't give justice trying to explain as me being a noob in that area as well
I chose the One because it just looks freakin awesome, show stopper, I was never into iphones, I'm not sure why and now it just looks so plain compared to all the new android devices coming out and I was close to getting the S4 but all those devices look the same as well once I laid my eyes on the One I was sold and I'm loving everything about it!
I didn't answer all your questions but that's my 2cents

Yeah, was going to wait until the SG4. Fell in love with the dual silver speakers after seeing them in an ad. Wanted something different, didn't like style of SG4, and wanted away from iPhone 5. I loved the fit and look of the iPhone 4, but can't go back after experiencing this huge yet compact screen to play with.

Don't download any app killers, or worry about apps running etc...android manages it's own memory.

ok im not new to android but did they get rid of the apps transfer. I remember entering my google address when I first started my phone and contacts and all my apps I downloaded started to show up. not the case. It was a pain trying to get my contacts of the other sim card. Had to transfer my contacts from sim to phone then transfer. So how do I get my play store to recognize and download my apps? or do I have manually do it one by one now?

Check out "Wheres My Droid"

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.alienmanfc6.wheresmyandroid

And there are many others as well.

Getting root is the same exact thing as getting admin access on a PC (Win, Mac or Linux). Unlike jailbreaking, you don't leave the ecosystem for another. Root isn't required to customize your phone and you can do more customizing with a stock HTC than you can a jailbroken iDevice - and then root takes it to the next level. With it you can obtain fundamental changes to Sense or abandon it. (Personally, I like Sense so I go the fundamental changes way.) Visit our rooting forums for more details (under construction/expansion starting today).

Common stock customizations - first, your browser. We have more than I can name. I recommend Boat Browser and strongly believe that it's better than stock by far.

If you'd like to experience a different home screen approach without Blinkfeed, try the Nova Launcher and its wealth of free themes. If you don't like it, uninstall it and you've harmed nothing.

For a better video playback experience, try Dice Player or MX Player. Dice is better but I find it easier to play some audio files with MX, so I use both.

Anyway, just some ideas, nothing that you _need_ to do (but you'll thank me for Boat Browser after you customize it to your tastes).

Welcome to Android and the forums!

PS - I don't have the One yet but I'm a reliable haunt for HTC forums lol.

On initial setup, there should be an option to restore from Google servers (or something similar, I can't remember the exact wording, sorry). Did you notice/leave that unchecked?

Ah, ok. I seem to remember on my One X, I had to add the Google account separately. If you head to accounts menu, add a new account, select Google that should sort you. (if you've not already tried that).

sorry you're having issues fine69,

after i entered my google login and also made sure unknown sources was ticked, my apps started downloading.

in the initial setup (you can restart this) it asks you if you want to use google servers to back up or htc (the htc backup uses your free 25gb dropbox storage by the way). so if you chose htc backup this could be the reason why your apps did not immediately download.

also make sure you are logged into the correct play store account.

if you are overseas and not in the US, things could be different, but this phone behaves just as prior htc phones ive used.

Well I took a look at the programs on my other phone and noticed most of them are now included in the software, so I just redownloaded the apps. Took like 10 minutes. It's all setup.

Thanks that's reassuring but are there any other available apps that can wake my phone when a notification like a text or email comes much like the iPhones? Light Notification requires access to my personal information which I'm slightly uncomfortable with

People weren't lieing when they said volumes for ringers and media were loud. I'm kinda missing being able to set different volume levels for notifications and ringer, seems like it is now lumped together and I prefer my notifications lower. Any ideas?

Press up or down on the volume rocker and then on the volume bar that appears click the gear. you can lower Ringtones, Music and Videos, and Alarms separately. Not sure which one notifications falls under but maybe alarms?

In text Messaging App go into Settings and then General and scroll down to Personalize. you can change the colors around as well as add a background image if you would like. Are you talking about the Power Saving options always being in the the Pull Down area? If so, Swipe Down and then long press the Power Saver area until App Info pops up and then press that and click force stop in the next menu. It will now disappear until you restart your phone or run the battery down lower than 15%. It is just a work around. If you want it permanently gone you would probably need to Root your phone.
