Looking to learn more about this phone Its also my first smart phone
I cant be the only new owner of a rugby smart here can I ??
I don't own the phone, but if you've generic Android questions, I'll try to do what I can to assist.
Thanks El Presidente,
My new issue.... I cant get the phone to notify me of new gmails It was but has now stopped any ideas?
Have you turned autosync or background data off? Despite the fact the gmail app uses Push notifications, it needs autosync on to work properly.
Thanks where would I find autosync?
It should be in Settings -> Accounts & Sync.
Although if you've not changed anything, it shouldn't have changed it itself. Have a look anyway, if it's still active, we'll have a mess about with other things.
Thanks again autosync did it
No problem, glad you sorted it!
I got a whole lot of sorting to do lol this is all new to me
I found it took me a while to get to grips with my first Android handset, then all of a sudden, everything just clicks into place.
It does seem daunting at first, but you'll get the hang of things. Shout if you get stuck, I'll be happy to help (or at least try to).
Hopefully if the device gains a little popularity, this forum will get a little busier too.
Busier is good lol theres not much info out there on this phone by buddy is a droid nut and he sees things that are different with this phone
Ok my autosync just unsynced itself after its been working all day I put it back on lets see how long it stays
Well my autosync came undone again any thoughts as to why?
Oh El Presidente did you abandon me all ready twice today I set auto sync and twice today it went off auto sync and ideas
Have you installed any 3rd Party battery saver apps/task killers etc?
Are there any Samsung apps built in that perform similar functions?
Yes I have task killer
I'll get you some links, explaining why they're not needed, but uninstall the task killer. I imagine (hope) your problem will go away.
Thank you El Pres Ill do it now
Well after my app killer uninstall my Gmail was working fine up untill this afternoon when I went in and looked to see autosync off So I did a little digging around inside my phones brain and discovered that when the phone went into power saver mode the autosync was checked to shut down So I unchecked it and will see what happens
Hi. I am am a novice smartphone user. I've been reading your post here and I could use some help as well. I also have the Samsung Rugby Smart (SGH-I847) and am completely buffaloed!
I read something about "rooting the device" and deleting the "bloatware" so games can run faster. I get the idea of removing junk I'll never use, like "Family App". I'm charging every day, due to reaching 50% level, should I adjust the "Power Saving" point down? I constantly adjust my Brightness and check Task Manager to exit all. If I set up the phone to charge when I get the 50% warning, am i setting a memory on the battery?
Re the memory, no Lithium batteries don't work that way, as long as you charged it completely the first time, then let it discharge fully once, it should be fine.
Don't exit stuff in Task Manager, let Android handle task management. Also, turn off the battery saver thing, or set it to a lower level (mine is at 15%, but I generally charge my phone when it reaches 40%).
Ok Im not getting Gmail replies to this thread lol and autosync still on
