    Hi guys, finally got into androids. Been using linux for sometime. Can see the linux roots in android operating systems or gingerbread or whatever!!!what that means to me is, it's not really very intuitive!!!!

    Got some questions:???:(

    one. how do i stop the phone from going black when i touch it to the side of my head as i talk. Then i can't use the keypad for phone trees etc nothing seems to wake up the screen.:confused

    two, i'm using the phone, and i get away from the page that originates the action, and i can't get back. I've been able to get back to a call sometimes, like a video is playing or something like that then i can't shut the video off.!!!:confused:

    three; one touch dialing, where do i find it and set it up??

    four; setting alarms, i couldn't find it but i set by voice, then when it went off i couldn't shut it off, had to power it down.:confused:

    I'm really not very sophisticated just really basic stuff like that ANY help would be appreciated!!!

    1) I'm not sure you can disable the screen turn off during calls. At least, I don't see any option in my settings to do it.

    2) I don't understand what your problem is. Could you please rephrase?

    3) Depending on your model of phone, you can create shortcuts that do this. Hold your finger down on an open spot on a homepage (basically, anywhere on the wallpaper) and a popup will come up asking you what you want to do. Add a shortcut and then you'll find an option that will pick a contact (my phone calls it 'direct dial').

    4) I personally like the app AlarmDroid as my alarm clock. It's pretty easy to use.

    Once you get used to your smartphone, it actually is pretty easy to use. Feel free to ask any question you need to :)

    1. Well this has to do with the proximaty sensor. Basically, if you don't know what it is, a proximaty sensor will detect objects and if it 'sees' anything then it will preform a specific action. I've only seen two things that use this thing, one, the phone calls, and two, a third party app that locks your phone when the proximety sensor detects something close by. As for your problem, the only way i would see being able to fix it is modifying the OS code manually and disabling it. I don't have a clue about that tho, sorry.
    2. And yes, i don't understand your problem here either. sorry.
    3. Jerofld can help you out on 3 :)
    4. Alarms is kind of disgued in the clock app for ICS, i'm not 100% sure if thats the same for older OSes or not, but as jerofld said, you can always download third party alarm app and it will most likely work even better.

    1) That seems weird. There is a proximity sensor on the phone that checks to see if your face is near the phone when you are on a call and turns off the screen (so your cheeks don't press any buttons). But the screen should turn back on after you move it away from your face.

    1. The screen turns on again after you move it away from your face. If it does not, then there is something blocking the sensor which makes it think its near your face.

    2. hold down the home button. It will show the recently used app. For example, if you had a video open, do this and it will show you recent apps. If the app you left is still open, when you get back to it, it will show you where you last left off.

    3. make a shortcut on your screen.

    4. As for shutting alarms off, there's a slider on screen. You slide it from one side of the screen to the other.

    thanks guys, appreciate the input. I think the skin i had over from my last Nokia E71 fits nicely but blocks the proximity sensor.
