Galaxy S6 :: Can't Shut Off System Update Alerts During Certain Hours On Phone?
Dec 12, 2015
Every single member of our family was awakened at 2 am last night when their phones were beeping about a system update. ALL of our phones were in "Do Not Disturb" mode with the only exclusion list being a couple family members' phone numbers. There is no option to block system update alerts in the middle of the night. There is no slider to select/deselect that. It seems like this would be a pretty basic option.
Without having changed any default or preference settings on my BB Curve, I suddenly now receive notification alerts when e-mails arrive and reminders for calendar events. I have chosen "silence" on the menus I receive through the sound icon, but nothing changes. How can I shut off these alerts ?
I have a curve 8530 hooked it up to PC and was updating software. I got a message it could find connection to phone, now my phone just blinks red. wont come on, I took battery out and tried but nothing but blinking red l ight, what happened??
When my phone is dark, in sleep mode after a timeout, I am not receiving any alerts/sounds when I receive an email. The LED light doesn't even light up. I receive alerts for Text Msgs & other "messaging" type apps, just not email. Immediately upon waking up the phone & authenticating, I get the Alert sound & the email msg pops up. This was an intermittent issue prior to the 5.1.1 update (which I had hoped would fix), but NOW it happens every time & is thus worse than before the update. I have tried several email APPS - and they all behave this way. Currently I have K9 Email installed. (I have WiFi enabled & Smart Wifi Search enabled).
I have a G920F and I noticed that the call alerts menu is missing. I looked under Sounds and Notifications menu and in the phone app. After a google search I learned that many are having the same issue. So now I cannot set the minute beep or the vibrate when pickup, hangup notification and all the rest. Is there any way I can get them back?
I have a Galaxy s6 model SM-G.920F that hangs on the main screen and cannot shut down. I cannot go into recovery mode either to factory set it. So, I flashed with stock firmware from sammobile and phone works. I then hard reset it from recovery mode and phone boots and everything fine. Then after a couple of minutes hangs again and same problem.
Everytime I take a picture with my s5 it shuts off and i have to pull the battery and restart, then it'll do it all over again. Started happening about a week ago, phone is 4 mos old. what should I do?
As the title says, I have my s2 set to 'never' vibrate.Why then does my phone vibrate VERY strongly when I get ebay alerts?It doesn't vibrate for any other notifications.Has anyone got any ideas as to what I can do to stop thisy phone crashed about a month ago and I've had problems with it ever since.
My phone shut off earlier, while I was using it. The battery was just about fully charged, and it was plugged in. I've tried holding down the power button, power and volume down, power, volume down, and home. I tried taking the battery out as well. Its been a few hours, and it still wont turn on.
I just got an S6 and immediately rooted via ping pong. The problem I've got is that the phone downloaded the 5.11 update and then asked me if I wanted to install, which I obviously don't. I just used the back button to leave the update screen, but now I'm left with a notification saying "System Update - Update Postponed".
I had a system update on my brand new s6 and now it won't vibrate for notifications it works for the keyboard and when it turns on and off so the motor is good. And I went into setting and it's all on. But I just can't get it to work.
Ive seen people complain about speaker phone automatically being on when they answer the phone. However my problem is sort of the opposite. When I am on a call and using speakerphone is randomly shuts off. I dont realize it until its the other persons turn to talk and I can hardly hear them.
Samsung Galaxy S6 and Chromecast - after about 10mins of screen casting and watching videos/movies, my Samsung mobile reboots? Am not sure if Chromecast disconnects first but it's not until the TV screen freezes and I look at my phone that i realise that it's shutting down. Not sure if Chromecast issue or mobile phone issue. Have good Wi-fi, Good batt charge, close proximity to each other.Chromecast is using USB power supply.When watching movies or vids on my Samsung phone it doesn't shutdown and reboot ever, but when I connect with Chromecast, which I have had for aprox 2 weeks, it does?
I was charging my phone while using it and it suddenly shut off. Whenever I try to turn it on the welcome screen "samsung powered by android" comes up for 1 second and then goes black and nothing else happens. I've had the phone for about 8 months and never rooted or installed any software other than official updates. I was just playing a game while it was charging when it stopped working.
every combination of buttons i press even the factory reset gives the same result, the welcome screen for 1 second and then nothing. I was able to get to the OS change warning screen though but when i cancel it goes back to the welcome screen problem. Charging it shows the charging symbol going on and off every second.
I downloaded the new system update, now my phone is in a constant recovery reboot saying installing system update. I press the power button plus the volume up and i can see what it is installing it goes through the same thing over and over and just reboots back in the recovery booting again when its done installing...what is causing this i cant do a system reset either it wont let me (volume up +home+power ) does not work , removing the batter does not work (soft reset)...
When I go to wipe my cache partition, before the boot menu appears I get a message every time that says "Installing System Update" and the little Android guy appears and acts like he's doing something. Normally functioning phones seeing this message before getting to their cache wipe?
I've done full Factory Resets twice now and also many cache wipes but I'm wondering if that original T-Mobile update on the first day got hung up and won't fix itself even with Factory Resets. And, wondering if perhaps other T-Mobile users have the same problem too causing the litany of issues we've seen.
I've tried to install Helvetica Neue by overwriting "Roboto-Regular.ttf" but only some UI elements have been changed, settings menu is still unaffected, which font file is being used in quick settings, settings menu and notification bar?
Changing font in "Settings > Display > Font Style" will change all UI elements, maybe there is one way to add my own font file into that list?
So I started to update my BB 9700 tonight, since it hadn't been done in awhile. I followed the instructions including the "don't unplug the device if you ever want it to work again" segment.All was going well until I got to step 10 of 12 (Loading Applications) It has now been trying to load applications for over 3 hours, with no advancement in the status bar at the bottom of the screen. My Desktop manager says it is disconnected, but I'm not sure how or when that happened. My screen is white with the computer and the BB and a pair of arrows, but nothing has happened for hours.I'm afraid to disconnect incase I lose everything on my BB and render it unusable!
I'm running a rooted 6P with TWRP and a custom kernel. Just got a notification for an OTA. Obviously, I can't run this update. How can I disable the update check? I have ROM Manager and know how to disable apps, but don't see any obvious update check system app.
