    When you press and hold home, I noticed there is no Task Manager, where is that located at. I can't seem to find it as with normal 2.2 android phones.

    I want to setup my yahoo mail with the phones email. I already setup my gmail account in it. But I cannot get the yahoo mail to work. I've used these settings I found in another posts.

    Protocol: IMAP
    IMAP Server: imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Security: None
    Server port: 143

    Check Login required
    SMTP Server: smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
    Server Port: 25

    Easiest way is just click and drag. Just make sure the drivers are installed first.

    I use iSyncr because of iTunes.

    Does anyone know how to get rid of the slide down lock and just have the pattern lock?

    My Inspire is charging, so some steps may not be perfectly described:

    From the home, press the Menu button
    Then choose Settings
    From there, go to Applications (You need to scroll down some)
    Then, you can manage running apps. If you don't like it this way, you can install a 3rd party application manager (Ex. Advanced Task Manager).

    I can't help you here, but if you wait for another member to stumble upon this thread, they may be able to help you out.

    Did you get your driver problem figured out? PC or Mac?

    On Windows 7, I just plugged in the phone, selected "Disk drive - Mount as disk drive" and clicked Done (you may or may not have to pull down the notification blind for this). The drivers automatically installed on my pc. Wait a few minutes and it appears as a drive in My Computer.

    And if that still doesn't work, you can also transfer music wirelessly with Winamp.

    Thank you. I just installed the yahoo mail app. The app works great. I thought it would be nice to have both email accounts in the same mail program. I am now glad I installed the yahoo mail app.

    When I unlock my phone, the clock widget seems to always update itself by flipping and it is always exactly 1 hour 2 minutes behind my time when it flips. Does anyone else do this, is that just the way it is or is there a setting I need to check.

    Watched some Youtube vids and theirs did it also, have to watch closely when they unlock but their clock widget updates too and it was 1 hour 2 minutes then it flips as soon as they unlock, odd for it to do that but at least it's not just mine LOL!!

    I'm new to Android, but is there a way to prevent some apps (such as "Stocks" for example) and others from running unless you actually choose to open them?

    I downloaded Advanced Task Manager, and it seems like every time I open it, there are certain apps that always (or virtually always) show as running, and for the most part, they are ones that I do not need unless I specifically want to view them

    Go to settings: Date & Time. Make sure everything is correct. Mine is set to Automatic. It looks like you can change it manually also.

    Is your weather set to update automatically? When I open the weather app, go to settings, I cannot choose to update automatically.

    Hi, this is a pretty newb question, but i cannot figure out this people function. I know the people widget is based on groups. All of my groups are blank.

    When i go to add contacts to my group, the list of contacts is blank even though i have tons of people in the people list.

    Can anyone walk me through this step by step? Why is my contact list blank?

    I don't know if you figured out yet but I thought I would throw my 2 cents in. Make sure your wifi is OFF while setting up IMAP or it will not work.

    For your contacts, did you get those backed up on the SIM card??? Because if so, they should have transferred, like mine did.

    Second, the widget for people is something that I don't have any experience with, so as hard as it is to say this, I cannot help you here.

    Yes your weather widget will refresh every 3 hours, unless you change it. If I can remember how to do so, I will get back to you. While I was going through the phone today I saw that setting, so I will do my best to find it.


    UPDATE::: OK, when you click on the clock/weather widget, you come to the desk clock. Then you click on the desk clock to update the widget. Then touch the "Menu" capacitive button and pull up Settings. For me, for some reason, I cannot choose the update schedule, but you may. For me, it may be because I have a different launcher that also runs on the phone. Could be different for you, but I could access it earlier before I installed that launcher.

    Hope that helped!

    I don't have any idea of what to do here, but I tried the switching thing that you do and didn't find it hard or a waste of time. The way I did it was go into the Gmail app, then click on my e-mail address and change it from there. If that is how your doing it, I think it will work out fine, but if not, let me know.

    does anyone elses phone freeze occasionally when typing text messages? Mine seems to have short lapses where the phone doesn't detect me touching the screen. This only last for a few seconds then goes back to normal. Too many apps running perhaps?

    I downloaded handcent. Is there a way to stop texts from showing up in the stock sms app? Every text I get a handcent notification and one for the default sms app.

    Hey Marc, can you post a screen shot of what we should all see when we log into our account as for data plans? I just looked at my and it's still says the iPhone unlimited, so I know I'm not getting all the speed I could be.
