I've been trying to take advantage of googles 10p app promotion but it seems that for any app I buy I get stuck at the "starting download" screen. This is the first time I've tried buying an app and its just not working. I can download free apps from the Market just fine, its just the paid apps that are giving me grief! I've googled about and tried the "clear cache" from Market app and "clear data" from download manager but it just doesn't work!
Rooted GS2 on standard O2 firmware connecting via wifi.
I've had my GS6 for about 6 weeks now and for the most part its been good but i've noticed in the past week or so its starting to slow down. Camera doesnt launch as quick as it used to with double tap, switching between apps is not as fast, scrolling thru websites isnt as smooth, it stutters now. I've restarted the phone and that works for a few hours then back to slow.
i just got a galaxy s2 and the videos keep crashing the phone while using the video player that comes with the phone. also, the phone crashes when watching video on the Internet app and embedded videos on webpages. dice player seems to work ok though.
Its been 4 weeks since I upgraded to SGS II,,so far so good,,have the following issues though:
1. the battery life,,I get just about 24 hrs with moderate usage,, 2. The phone gets reallly hot when the GPS or some of the games are on,,I mean reaallllyy hot. 3. I don't seem to be able to send videos via the MMS?? even a 6 second clips is rejected as (TOO long)??!! 4. If u write a text message that's too long ( more than 3 standard text messages) it converts to MMS!! Despite the above,,,I am still very happy the I left the apple world for this,,cant believe I stayed with iphone for 2 years ??!!
Video files recorded on my sgs2 have the file extension mp4 but wont play on my sony bravia tv or via my sumvision cyclone mkv2 media player. They do however play on my windows 7 laptop.wehen playing a video on the sgs2 you can get more info by tapping menu/details. This tells me the format is 3gpp. I believe 3gpp forms a simple wrapper around the mp4 file and suspect this is the element my other devices can't handle.If I copy the files to my laptop and convert them to mp4 using [RZ Video Converter] program then copy them back to my sgs2... They now play fine on all my devices including the sgs2.
When I first got the phone it was on gingerbread 2.3.3 - now ive updated the firmware to 2.3.5 I can no longer play videos on the BBC website...[URL]When I click on play the red 'loading' circle goes round and round and round...nothing loads.I have flash 11 installed, tried resetting the browser to default.
I open my gallery, and find strange commercials and such saved to my video files. It's gotta come from the web browser I would think, but why would files save automatically, without me ever noticing anything? Also, there's a problem with this website... every time I try to post a thread, I hit Submit and get taken to a blank screen with this URL:[URL]It drives me up a wall, because I have to post on here using Internet Explorer.
How can I get videos from my computer to play on my phone? I've tried mp4 and 3gp and I can put them on my SD card but they don't show up on my phone anywhere, in any of the folders. I've already formatted my card, etc. I am adding them by connecting the phone with USB. If I need to actually take the card out, put it in the adapter and plug it into my computer, that is fine, but I am unsure of how to get my card out of my phone, haha, I don't see anyway to get it out.
Dropped phone 3 stories out of a window and LCD and screen broken and wont turn on so cannot retrieve data, pictures or videos it wont sync to computer and I don't know the username or password of the Gmail that is connected to the phone.
When I open sent or received picture texts, they appear with a white circle and black triangle as if it were a 'play' button. If I click on the pictures, they open as if they were a video, 'playing' anywhere from 5 - 10 seconds with a play bar below. There's no problem opening or downloading the photos, but it's weird/annoying that pictures are opening this way.
Not sure how this changed. Use to be able to simply view videos and photos on websites, but now they must be downloaded to be viewed, which isn't ideal. Would love to go back to just viewing, but can't find settings to make this happen anywhere.
I'm unable to access my videos or music as a message is displayed saying 'not enough memory'. My internal storage says I have used 739MB and have 1.2GB free. My external 8GB micro sd card shows I have 5.6GB available. However, my usb storage says I've used 12GB and have no free space. I guess the usb storage is the problem (unless there is something else) and I would like to know how I came to fill up the usb storage when I thought I was saving things to my external 8GB sd card.how to rectify the problem and also how to manage it in the future?
For whatever reason, Pandora stops after each song when my phone goes off and the only way to go to the next song is by turning the screen back on and opening the app. WiFi is set to always on during sleep. I'm connected via Bluetooth if that matters. Is it the app? There's a setting in advanced in Pandora about auto lock and I have clicked and unclicked and it still stops after each song. Once I turn the screen back on and open the app, the advertisement turns back on or the next song plays.
I started using Hangouts again for SMS on my Verizon S5 and quickly remembered why I had stopped in the first place. I cannot seem to turn off the Hangouts app vibrations for new texts. See, I use Light Flow for all my notifications, and I have it set up to vibrate twice when I get a new text message. Light Flow is working fine, but the problem is that there is always a third, longer vibration immediately before the Light Flow ones. I assume it's coming from the Hangouts app itself but I've poured through every setting, turned off vibrate everywhere I've seen it, and yet the single, long vibrate persists. I've even gone through all the main phone settings to no avail. I'm also relatively certain that Light Flow isn't the issue; when I disable that app, I still get the single, long vibration from Hangouts.
Before i switched to the s6 I was using an iphone 5s. I usually watch videos on chrome while laying on the bed so on my iphone i rotate the video to landscape and watch while the phone is portrait. Using the s6 was a bit different i had to use the phone 180 degrees so that the auto rotation wont disturb the video while watching it landcape on portrait.
Some of the older videos only have a black screen, but I can hear the sound. Screen even says "play audio only". I'm not a genius at tech stuff, but I've looked it up and done it all to fix it. Pull battery put, clear cache... ect. Recently, I didn't have enough storage to download an update, so I disabled a lot of apps I never use. Maybe I disabled one I need?? (But only the oldest 10 videos do this, not the rest)!! These videos were of the birth of my daughter and I want them back!!! (-:
I realized today that all of my photographs and videos had been deleted off my Galaxy S5. I'm not sure how it happened... All of the recovery apps I've found won't work on files lost before the app was installed, and the only Windows based programs I've been able to find require the phone to be recognized as a USB device, which doesn't seem like an option for the S5. The phone is not rooted. How to recover the deleted files?
My wife has an Iphone 6. She likes to send me periodic videos of my son throughout the day. I just upgraded from an Iphone to the S5 and now whenever she sends a video, when I try to play it I get a "Can't play video." message in the center of a black screen. Is there a way around this?
When someone calls me and I want to answer the call by swiping the green button I got nothing even I can't end the call by swiping the red button or even by pressing the lock key. I have to wait until the caller ends the call and then I call him back.
I have a Galaxy S5 and would like to be able to stop the notification of receiving an e-mail without stopping the notification of text messages. Is there a way to differentiate? I was able to do this on older phones.
I used it heavily to see if i breaks or not. It was working fine until yesterday when I felt it so hot.I couldn't hold it in my hand anymore to play so I put it aside for a couple of hours to get back.
