    Some incoming message go to HTC MESSAGES not Google Hangouts.

    My M8 is causing me issues with messages I recieve from one person. For everyone else, messages go to Hangouts, but a friend with an S5 causes me this problem: If he sends me an SMS it goes to Hangouts.

    Don't buy Spigen SGP Crumena Leather View Pouch

    I just bought a Spigen SGP Crumena Leather View Pouch. Apart from being far more bulky than the SENA Ultraslim pouch that I've been used to with my S2 & S3, it was okay. I really like(d) the viewing window (S-View function). But...the first time I put it in the back pocket of my jeans for an...

    Help How do you stop the S4 trying to "check-in"?

    Something is making my S4 try to check me in everywhere I go. It's not Facebook and I don't use any other social media. I think it's the Google location, but not sure. I do have location allowed for Google Now, etc.... is it that? Ideally, just need to know what/where box to uncheck to turn...

    Root [International] Which ROM do you suggest for stock Android

    I'm interested in moving to a custom ROM to give a stock android feel (like my Nexus 7). Has anyone ported the Nexus 4 ROM across, or is there a better option? I usually go to XDA for this sort of thing, but can seem to find what I'm looking on this occasion (probably because I'm looking for...

    4.2 lock screen problem

    My N7 just updated to 4.2. I also have email synced with work so there's a pin lock code. I thought this meant I couldn't change the lock screen... swiping any which way does nothing. Pin code just unlocks. Then this morning the machine acted weird for a bit and now below the lockscreen...

    Ages ago the press carried pictures of an official (Asus, I think) portrait dock for the N7. It used the side contacts to charge, etc. What happened to it? Is it available?

    Anyone noticed that the Olympic backplate (I have the dark Union flag one) makes the phone noticeably thicker than the standard backplate? Just thought I'd mention it. Compared two phones side by side and it was obvious.
