It seems my reboot didn't correct duplicate texts.My latest thinking is maybe some of my contacts are in more than one place.Is this feasible and if so how do i find the "linked" contacts.

They would all be listed under the People app. However, it is unlikely that having duplicate contacts in your address book would send duplicate texts.

Hey guys,

Quentyn from Phandroid.com here. Chiming in because I understand many of you are disappointed about the result of this ask me anything session. First of all, I feel I owe all of you a huge apology, as well as an explanation on what happened.

I originally underestimated the amount of activity this thread would get. I had every intention of answering every question that was asked, but things ultimately spiraled out of control. I posted the thread in the midst of working to provide Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KITKAT coverage for Phandroid.com, and that proved to be much more difficult than I originally imagined.

I committed a huge error by failing to communicate a couple of key things in my original posts:

* I should have mentioned that the ask me anything session was for a limited time.
* I should have clearly communicated the cut-off point for questions.

It's because of these two things that the thread ballooned into such a mess, and with a broken promise to boot. I sincerely apologize to everyone whose questions were seemingly ignored. I must admit that I am new to the whole AMA process, but I have learned a great deal from the missteps that have occurred. I will work diligently to avoid such issues in the future should I decide to do another.

Again, I just want to apologize to everyone, and hope you'll understand how truly sorry I am that this has gone down this way.

-Quentyn

You're a scholar and a gentleman Quentyn.

It seems the AF community can also help pick up the torch and answer a few questions

can you edit the keyboard?

I'd rather have the comma as the main key instead of the full stop and have the full stop as the long press

Its the Google keyboard, so you have the same setting options as the one on the market.

I have the comma on the main page replacing the voice key

Where is the voice key on Nexus 5s Google keyboard?! I've been searching everywhere and long pressing the comma does not work.
Edit: Long pressing the comma brings up only the settings button.

I'm sorry my friend. It seems only you have this problem. I would contact my carrier if I were you ASAP and make sure it isn't charging you double and if it is explain the situation to them. As for fixing the problem, try downloadung a 3rd party SMS app and see if it has the same problem. If it doesn't, try disabling hangouts, then restarting your phone and enabling it

I figured out the problem was that I had to enable Google voice typing by checking it under language & input. I had the voice input ticked but it still wasn't showing up until I enabled Google voice typing.

It's unnecessary to apologise as you have given hope to many people seeking knowledge to resolve their issues...................you owe nothing to anyone.

This thread also drawn others with interest in the Nexus 5 and KitKat. A place to ask and answer questions, creating a sense of camaraderie which is what a Forum should be. Unfortunately, forums do draw people with over sized testicles who's only objective is to be argumentative.

Oh............... My question :- How can I set a song from the Music Folder as the Ringtone ? or any other alternative to KitKat Ringtones.

If you download zedge, then download some tones. go into the app you want to change the tone of, it should come up as a choice. Hope I explained it well

Thank you for the prompt reply, I shall try your suggestion if there's no Stock ROM alternative. I'm trying to stick to pure Stock for now before Root, etcetera, at a later date as I don't wish to void the Warranty just yet.

Maybe try > Play Music > Settings (top right corner) > Equaliser > FX booster + required preferential Bass boost & Surround sound.

Get a 3rd party ringtone maker,so simple even i can manage it.

Get 3rd party ringtone will suffice, I have no interest in what you can manage.

Using 3rd party apps is simple but that's not what I asked....... I'm trying to make things work with pure Stock ROM without 3rd party software.

Another question/issue......................this is not just regarding KitKat; the issue is that some certain websites require Java plugin for Chrome and I cannot enter this MMORPG unless I install Java but receives error messages "Device Not Supported"...............any work-arounds/hacks ?........... and please do not advice to contact Java to update support, that's just being silly.

Sometimes it is easy to give the wrong impression through text messages. If I have not expressed myself correctly and given offence in the translation, I apologise, it was not my intention.
I have no reason to be a cause of offence to strangers.

May be better to ask in another XDA forum.

Quick question. How do I stop by screen from going off anytime I'm watching a video. No matter what video, web, local it goes off after like a minute. Been looking for how to change that. Thanks

What player are you using? It can probably be changed in the player's settings or download a third party player like MX player.

The maximum length of time before it goes to sleep is 30 Minutes, shortest is 15 Seconds.

Settings > Display > Sleep (select desired time limitation).

This is a lack of hindsight from Google Developers in thinking that people may wish to have an option of the device NEVER going to sleep. Similar to the thinking that people do not need to have an option to edit/save *My Phone Number* ( if your number is Ported onto the SIM, it will display the original number incorrectly) so Users WILL NEED that option.

As I have repeatedly stated, KitKat is Half-Baked, there are many other issues. When they have full Baked this ROM, they will release it as Key Lime Pie.

This is a lack of hindsight from Google Developers in thinking that people may wish to have an option of the device NEVER going to sleep. Similar to the thinking that people do not need to have an option to edit/save *My Phone Number* ( if your number is Ported onto the SIM, it will display the original number incorrectly) so Users WILL NEED that option.

As I have repeatedly stated, KitKat is Half-Baked, there are many other issues. When they have full Baked this ROM, they will release it as Key Lime Pie.
I honestly don't see the need for having your screen never turn off.

As far as KitKat being "half-baked", every release has bugs. And they get quashed in the following OTA updates like we just got today

You can install it manually if you don't want to wait for it. That's what I did.

Does it fix the screen sleep bug? (No "never" option.)

Does it fix Google Now and OK Google?

Is there a list of issues anywhere that says what it addresses?

Thanks.

I don't seem to have this issue, but maybe it is because I use Gravity Screen.

It is not about having the need to to keep the screen always On, it is about having the Option if One so desire to manually turn Off and turn On. The freedom to do so rather than not being able to do so; what the US call Liberty/democracy ?

ROM bugs are acceptable when there were no known issues but not acceptable when the developers have not sorted out the already known issues but the Company releases it to Retail anyway due to strategic marketing.

More importantly, hope they've fixed the Hangout APK issue of sending SMS Messages as MMS Messages.................some people with free inclusive texts do not realize that they are paying extra because Hangout was sending as MMS which is not inclusive.

The issue of incorrect "My phone number" in SIM after Porting can be resolved by placing the SIM into a iPhone 4/4S to Edit/Save, confirmed. Thanks to the kind Staff in an Apple Store for helping, whereas O2 Store Staff vehemently refused to even contemplate on the idea for attempting to fix their own SIM issues.
Please note that this is a SIM issue that's supposed to be fixed by the Carrier rather than phone issue to be sorted by the hardware/software producer.

OTA Android 4.4.2 System Update now available.

"This update improves the Nexus 5 camera with faster shooting (less shutter lag, less motion blur); faster, more accurate focusing; better white balancing for truer colors; and more accurate exposure. The update also includes other bug fixes and performance improvements."

It is very refreshing to know that Google knows and does care, also the fix is promptly available..................

First thing that was noticeable, the Sound is louder, found the "Touch Sound" to be a little too intrusive so had to turn it to off although the other volumes are deemed as improvement; not have sufficient time to determine other changes as yet.....................................
