    when sending text messages, is there a way to send the text from the message window without having to hit the button to make the keyboard disappear and then hit the send button

    The send button should be to the right of the text window even if the keyboard is up, at least in Portrait mode. In Landscape you either have to hit menu and send or just minimize the keyboard.

    Yeah, this kinda sucks. Oh well, something to get used to I suppose.

    I will try to get used to it before trying any other keyboards.

    Hmmm, Mine is syncing back some 27 months. I looked online and on the phone for a setting but was unable to find one. You know, stuff that old, you should learn to just let go. ;) (just playing)

    New android user here. I need some help.

    How do I turn off background data while still getting Push Gmail and weather updates?

    How do I use a custom background, I go to home screen, Gallery, Astro, and select the downloaded image and it says it set the image, but it doesn't.

    Thanks in advanced

    As far as sync goes those settings are at Menu/Settings/Accounts & Sync. There may be other settings in the applications themselves.

    When I open my Gallery I select an image. I then select Menu/Set as Choose Wallpaper. Then set the green box to the area you want to display. It can be made larger. Then click Save. It should set. If not See if you installed ATK or similar program to kill apps. It could be keeping it from working.

    From the Main Window
    Menu/Settings/Personalize/Scenes
    Select the scene you want to delete. Hit Menu Delete.
    Done.

    On my palm pre, I could make a call on the phone while I'm driving and transfer the call to the bluetooth of my car by selecting a button.

    How can I do this on the EVO? While I'm driving all incoming calls go straight to my car but sometimes I may just want to transfer the calls back and forth from my car to my phone?

    I have not tested this myself but I would imagine just turn off Bluetooth. There is a settings widget toggle for bluetooth that would make it a one button push.
    Hit the + button then widget/settings/bluetooth

    Hiya fellow Evo owners. I hope everyone is enjoying their Evo as much as I am. I have one quick question and couldn't find any answers using the Search feature.

    Does anyone know how to turn off/change the "green Android Robot" picture that pops up when you're trying to make a phone call?

    Is there any way to make it so that you can push one of the buttons on the outside of the phone to stop your phone from ringing? I used to be able to do that with my Instinct but can't seem to get that to work anymore. If not, not a big deal.

    Not that I know of but check this out. If you take the phone and turn it over the ringer will silence. (I love that feature!!!)

    If you use the text messaging app, Handcent, there is an option to setup a button to send it w/o closing the keyboard. the options are "Enter, ALT+Enter, or none" I think.

    Also, Handcent has better overall themes and features. It's messed up in the market right now, so you have to go to the dev homepage to get it.

    I can't seem to figure out how to really customize a scene with my EVO. Some of the preinstalled ones have smaller clocks or a smaller windowed Friendstream etc. I can figure out how to resize some of these for use in a custom scene.

    First off there are sooo many widget options thats its hard to answer your question here. My suggestion would be to start with a clean slate. Then just start adding widgets till you find the ones you like. Just know that when you select clock....there are more options when you swipe left on some of them. Good Luck

    Change the bookmarks when you are in your browser. What you set in the browser will change in the widget. ;-)
