On the second point, it only blacks out my screen. It does not lock it.
Are you using a different video player? Only works in the stock one
I don't think so. I just hit the youtube app that came on the phone to test it out and it keeps blacking out the screen. Also, I made a thread about it in another area of the forum, but there is no voice talk installed on this phone either. Is there something different with the SHW-M250S model or something? it seems lacking compared to the stuff I see in this thread.
I dont know, but try watching a video file from your phone, not.in tje youtube app and then.locl the screen, it should work.
I took a video and played it back and it worked. Thanks. Now to figure out why voice talk is not on the phone
after spending a lot of time to do this. the apps icons reset when i rebooted my phone. how do i fix that?
Provided you saved your list it should have survived a reboot.
If it is still giving you issues there is a free App on The Market you could download which sorts out your list alphabetically.
It's titled AppZorter Lite for Touchwiz.
About taking screenshots..
Press and hold the homebutton and THEN press powerbutton. No need to press simultaneously. Then you dont need to think about timing and such.
additional kies connecting tips:
- delete files with a large number of chars in the file extension, usually in the picture folders as thumbnail files
- enable flight mode before connecting usb cable.
my phone sits at connecting constantly unless im in flight mode, regardless of any of the other steps ive read on various sites. its the single thing which now allows me to connect on a number of computers where it would sit at connecting previously.
does anyone have a way to make the middle screen your home without rooting? all tips i see involve rooting.
not sure why it was middle on my galaxy s and they switched it to the very left first home. middle allows me to quickly slide left or right for other much used screens...whereas left one makes me slide at least two screens to the right....anyone?
never mind...i can add a tips as a solution to my issue...i stumbled on go launcher ex with no root needed. learned from pocketnow tips video for galaxy s2 and although i have only just downloaded...i used tip it prompted for a migrate app that made copying from touchwiz pretty easy to get my homescreens.
I love this...the scrolling bottom icons...allowing 5 on screen rather than 4...resize widgets...9 home screens not 7. wow. wow. wow.
hey, when i press  audio then there is no option but there is caution menu being blocked. plz help
Can you access the menu by pressing the menu key (bottom left of the phone) and then enter the value (5) via the keyboard ?
I strongly recommend using the latest firmware though, as that fixes the volume issue.
Any way to remover icons in the status bar? after i updatet my firmware the vibration icon is up there all the time exept when in silent....
Want it to vibrate exept in silentmode , but without the icon.. (wasn't there before update)
yah, i was looking for an answer for that as well, but i couldn't find one except costume roms, which i done use now..
something changed on my phone and bloody AUTO CORRECT is now in text.
To swap back = settings/language and keyboard/samsung keyboard/XT9 Predictive text....untick it. (vise versa if you want it on)
Secondly, It must have come from a GO! update, my incoming calls started to "read out" the callers id etc....very annoying. Turns out "driving mode" decided to turn its self on. Only way i found to stop it was to put the "VOICE" widget on a screen, and deactivate the driving mode.
Neat trick I just found.. dunno if was written previously: IF you want to change brightness rapidely, touch and hold the upper bar (the one with hours and stuff) and slide left to right
Another tip for voice action that is funny You can change the intro that the lady says when you activate " What would you like to do? "
Goto: settings/Voice Input and output settings/Voice reg. settings/Voicetalk/ Voice Talk Settings/Customise main prompt
Can't tell you what I put instead ;-)
BtW if some are like me .. Im french canadian and I prefer my phone in English but voice recognition to be in french. You can do that by changing the in voice talk the language.
When receiving a call you can put your phone face down to silence the call.
Also i discovered that doing this while playing a video will pause it.
social hub says email/password is incorrect when it isnt
thank you to all contributors.
hey.. so I just bought my SG2.. and I was wondering if I can make the picture of a person show when he is calling me
As anyone who updated knows, the most recent version of Pinball HD for Tegra broke the menus for us.
Downloading edition 2077 will fix it (this was the previous version).
using the same downward swipe action to drop down the notification bar, will drag the bar back up again i.e. swipe down to drop down the bar, swipe down again in exact same way to collapse the bar to normal state.
saves having to swipe up from the bottom of the screen, and sometimes having to swipe up a few times because you didn't swipe far enough or whatever.
For those syncing with an Exchange server.......
...Took me a while to work out how to carry out an Online Exchange Address book search so thought this may be of use to someone...
-Long press menu soft button to bring up search
-Type first few characters of contact name, when a result isn't found on the phone the online search button will appear
-Continue typing name and then press the online search button
-Choose the contact from the results to see details and optionally save to any of your address books.
