Ahh Gotcha. Nope. No way in the Stock Messaging app to do that. Maybe one of the other Text apps like Chomp, Handcent, or goSMS Pro will have that option.

No blanket setting but each of the Stock apps (Messaging and Mail) have a place in their settings called Notifications. When you go into those settings you just uncheck the notification box and there you have it.

Nope, that's my only real gripe right now, ringtone and notification volume are grouped together. Guessing that's a new Sense thing.

Default feature questions before buying

Hi, I was playing with the HTC one at the ATT store and I was unsure about a few features. If current owners could answer a couple of questions I would appreciate it.

  1. Is there vibration (haptic?) feedback on the touchscreen when texting? I could not make it vibrate, except for the softkeys.
  2. Does the text on a webpage reformat when you pinch zoom? I could pinch zoom but then I had to scroll left to right. Is there an option to automatically reformat web pages?
  3. How good is the mic quality for phone calls? My current phone is actually a terrible "phone" as no one can understand me on the other end. I would like a smartphone that was actually good at making phone calls.

Any help with these questions would be appreciated

1) There IS a haptic feedback option in the keyboard settings.
2) That is browser dependent. I know Boat and Dolphin do. Unsure about the stock browser (I don't use it) nor Chrome (don't use often enough)
3) GREAT! My wife called me a while back from her One, and I thought something was wrong because I could ONLY hear her, and no road noise while she was traveling!

I love my One, and so far, my wife does, too, and she's HARD to please technologically speaking . I recommend it highly.

Go SMS has that option, as well as different notification tones for contacts as well (I wish stock had it. I like it better except for THAT).

No, that's a standard Android feature since ICS, thanks to Google.

I know of one fix.

[Hands On] ICS Enhanced Ringer Control Is A Ridiculously Simple App To Control Notification And Ringer Volumes Independently In ICS

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.brianhislop.icsringervolume

Recent comment there says it works for the One - and there's a trial version.

Dumbest change by Google, ever.

Default Sharing via MMS MIA?

This is something I've not encountered in previous phones.Seems sharing options for some apps are lacking the SMS/MMS option,such as GOOGLE PLAY & YOU-TUBE.

Is this unique to HTC &/or SENSE 5?

Using the clipboard is a workaround,but,I'm hoping I'm just overlooking something.

THX!

When I try and share something in both Google Play and YouTube Apps I scroll through all the choices and the Messages app is there. I have encountered some 3rd party apps that don't have the choice but that is a developer's option.

OK the share window only shows 4 apps at a time. Swipe up on dropbox and it should show the next 4 Apps and then swipe again, etc until you find what you are looking for.

Well, since I'm the current title holder , I've got another one:

In stock browser, web pages are zoomed when first appearing, until a double-tap fits the page to screen.
Can I default to full-page view on opening?

THX!

Can you give me an example website? Are you forcing Desktop site? Do you mean it is zoomed all the way in or all the way out?

Default Contacts to Google

Apologies if this has been covered ad nauseum:

Is there an easy way to move contacts stored on the phone over to google? And JUST use google for contacts?

Sure,this site (A/F) is a perfect example:

Whether or not I have desktop view enabled,the upper left corner of the page is whats visible,extremely zoomed in,seeing only the very top left corner of the page.

A double tap zooms out,viewing the entire page.

Hmm OK I can't recreate it on mine in the Stock Browser. Maybe go into the settings and clear Cache and History and then go into advanced and reset it to it's defaults?

There's some zoom options in the accessibility menu in the stock browser settings not sure if that'll help

Tried all of those options, even the zoom options in the advanced settings, still the same.
Not a huge issue, as a quick double tap fixes the view to the entire page.

THX for troubleshooting this, SIKCLOWN , I appreciate it!

yes,

whatever your primary gmail address is, that is the address that your contacts, apps, tasks, calendar entries will be synced to. that is the beauty of google.


so if you have an old android mobile and you are moving to the ONE, after you sign in on the ONE with your old android gmail address you used, that data will be sent to the ONE.

I could be wrong but I think they mean that they already have all their contacts on the Phone (I.e local storage called Phone) but want to move them to Google. @emf1138 if you open the people app and click on settings bar and then Manage Contacts, you Have multiple choices such as Copy Contacts and Import/Export Contacts. I would try Copy Contacts. You can choose Phone and then Copy to Google. After you do this you may have to delete the Phone contacts or run De-Duplicate. You may also be able to Use Import from Phone Storage to Google.

Default Multiple email devices

Sorry if this is in wrong area - just new and couldn't find what I was looking for.

I have just upgraded to HTC ONE from desire S as it stopped working. I have outlook 2010 and I had my Desie setup to download emails from server (SKY or SKY YAHOO as it is now). It took me ages to find solution to being able to have emails on both phone and laptop as once downloaded from server it won't do it again for device that didn't 'get it first'. After hours of trawling, I finally found on a forum somewhere that if I add the word 'Recent' somewhere into the account settings, it works. If old phone worked still, I would just look at how its configures, but as its not, having to trawl through google again looking for a solution. Has anyone heard of this before? Where do I type recent? or can you suggest another way of achieving the same end goal?

Thanks a million
Karen

I did not fully understand.

do you just need the new server settings from your old sky account to be added to your phone so you can get your email? is this what you are asking?

No, Not really. I have already set upmy phone with pop 3 and my emails download from the server. They stay on the server because I have ticked the leave a copy on the server, BUT because they have already downloaded once, outlook cannot download them as well. When My Desire S worked, I had the same problem initially but after hours of trawling, on a forum similar to this one, I found that it wasn't actually possible, but a 'workaround' was suggested which involved the insertion of a word into the account settings. from my memory, that word was recent I have tried adding this into the account details, but it just gets rejected as being 'invalid account'. Now the obvious and easiest solution would have been to look at the settings on the Desire S and see exactly what I had done, but that mobile is dead and so I can't switch it on to look. This is really frustrating because i know I can have what I want = I've already HAD it!! I hope i have been clear, but if it would help to give more details, please ask
Thanks

Default Thinking of buying phone and have a few questions.

Alright, I've been around Android since the OG EVO came out and am looking to upgrade to the H1 in June from a Photon 4G. I was wondering about the charging though. I noticed it's MHL and doesn't have a micro USB port. If I upgrade does this mean all my old chargers are now useless? I've got a few different ones for work, home and travel and it would be a bit of a PITA to have to change them all out. If they don't work, is there an adapter I can use?

I apologize in advance if these have been answered before and I didn't see it. I've just never had a MHL device. Thanks for any help in advance.

the phone uses micro usb just as prior phones such as the evo 4g lte so you can use any micro usb charger.

HTC One specifications and discussion (Keep thread on topic) for more info.

Default Lost HTC black A/C wall charger

So, my wall charger seems to have disappeared. Can I use any USB -> A/C charger or does it have to be the HTC branded version. Can I use an old iphone charger?

Is this phone capable of multi color led and has anyone tried the various apps with positive results on the One? Thanks

I believe the LED will only do green and amber. I could be wrong though.

NO the one's notification lamp does not take advantage of those types of settings in its stock configuration.

Now the obvious and easiest solution would have been to look at the settings on the Desire S and see exactly what I had done, but that mobile is dead and so I can't switch it on to look. This is really frustrating because i know I can have what I want = I've already HAD it!! I hope i have been clear, but if it would help to give more details, please ask

The only way I can think of achieving your end goal of both devices being able to download the emails without preventing the other (i.e. because the server says they've already been downloaded) is to set the accounts up in Outlook and on your phone as IMAP accounts, instead of POP3 accounts (assuming your accounts can be set up as IMAP accounts - not all can).

With IMAP accounts, the server becomes the main source, and each computer/phone keeps a synced copy of the server locally. Changes (clearing read flag, deleting, receiving) made on any device are reflected on all of the others.

This is how I've set up my accounts in Outlook, on my HTC One X and Nexus 7.

Default Factory Unlocked questions

Ordered the factory unlocked HTC One from HTC directly. A few questions.

Does this have the same radio's as buying it from T-Mobile or AT&T? Or are there different hard ware versions for different carriers? Which version am I getting.

How would updates for the phone get pushed. Would they come directly from HTC? Don't the carriers usually put out the ROM/Android updates?

Is the factory unlock a hardware or software thing? In other words, if I flash a ROM to this is it still carrier unlocked?

thanks,
BOb

I can't speak to the radios. However, if you get a phone unlocked from the factory, it won't come with any carrier bloatware, and you will get your updates pushed directly from the manufacturer as they don't have to get it approved through the carriers (slow) update approval process.

Most ROMs are carrier unlocked by default. Flashing a ROM shouldn't lock your phone to any particular carrier, and if it does you should be able to go back to being unlocked just by moving off the ROM in question.

Yes, and the radio transceivers have been upgraded, it appears to give more flexibility for T-Mobile and ATT use.

I just added the frequency comparison for the Developer Edition just after the chart, thought I'd done that before, sorry about that.

For best results, do ensure that you're flashing roms (and especially kernels) intended for your model. Roms tie to kernels, kernels tie to hardware. Follow that rule and you'll be ok.

What email server are you using? POP really doesn't work when you want to do this.

If you have an email address that goes to a POP server I would suggest getting a gmail.com (probably best with an android phone) or outlook.com account (better for Outlook on PCs) and setting it up to retrieve email from your POP server. This way you can access your email using IMAP. With IMAP the mail stays on the server so your device clients can access it, change read flags, move stuff to folders/tags etc and all stay in sync.

You can configure both outlook.com and gmail.com to send through your ISPs email servers so the email looks correctly that it is coming from that account.

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.
