Around a week ago I used a friends 'selfie stick'. The same day I was walking around Windsor and noted that the phone had powered down. I tried pressing the power key, but the phone did not turn on. I took the battery out, replaced it and then the phone came back on.
The problem now seems to reoccur when I have put my phone in my back pocket and either walk some distance, or keep it in my back pocket in the car (for some reason).
Google Calendar lost all data... looks fine on PC and Nexus 7... will not sync... tried clearing app cache... tried clearing all phone cache... tried reming and reinstalling Google Calendar app... tried removing and reinstalling Google Account... when looking at sync settings for google account, calendar is not listed... Gmail is syncing but seems to be extremely slow in doing so...
basically my phone is not connecting to mobile data after wi-fi connection is lost or manually disconnected. This is not always happening but once it happens the only way to bring back mobile data is by restarting the phone or manually toggling mobile data on and off in settings. Once it connects to mobile data it'll work for a while but then after being connected on WI-FI for a while it won't go back to mobile data on its own.
I tried rebooting 3 times and still did not come back. I did not install or uninstall anything. I did not even use my phone today except to answer a call. When I went to use it all my contacts and favorites were gone
So as things are perfect and smiley in the world, the way to make your day complete is to drop your brand new samsung galaxy s2 from a pathetically small height and watch as the whole screen shatters to bits. Enough to put anyone in a great mood.Fixing the screen isn't the problem though. 02 have agreed to fix it for me, for a small fee, but they have confirmed that the whole phone will be flashed before hand. This is not good. I have a lot of memories on the phone that i would like back.I have connected the phone to samsung keis, however, since the screen locked, the dam thing won't let me in to my own data. Understandably this is to ensure absolutle security to your sh** but I can't help wondering why samsung didn't install an option that allows you to unlock the phone from your computer. really need some help figuring out how I can get my sh** back. If anyone knows how to bypass the screen lock or just refresh it. Any advice would be greatly appriciated. I'm not in a great rush since my mum refuses to pay for the fix. and it'll take me a few weeks to save up.i can't unlock the phone because i can't see the screen and i think the touch pad is bust as well.
I am a BES user and recently my account had to be recreated. I had taken a back up of the device from desktop manager. However after restore I find that all the BBM contacts, Bookmarks and Auto-text was not restored.I had spent a lot of time in making all the Auto text relevant to me. Doesn't the back-up process back up all these data?
I have a lot of content on my s5 in my memo and alarms, lists etc. I really need these backing up! I asked in the Samsung store and searched online and still haven't managed to do it! Samsung guy said to download an app, which I couldn't find, then I also tried backing it up on family, to no avail!
I flashed to 5.1.1 T-Mobile when it came out, then learned it was a leak and wasn't ready for release yet. Unsurprisingly I'm having issues with System crashing, etc. I tried to flash back to 5.0.2 and I end up in a bootloop.
I'm stuck! The only ROM that seems to work now is 5.1.1, all others get me stuck in a bootloop in which I must use TWRP to flash back to 5.1.1. How to be able to go back to a stable 5.0.2!
my s6 is new upon 2 days of using it it gave me that problem at random where the back(return) key just works on its own,I brought my phone to the seller and they supposedly fixed it but now im having this issue again,I live in seychelles and I bought this phone from UAE. When trying to download a recommended app which can connect my phone to samsung headquarters to diagnose the issue and fix it.
the back button is flipping out, nit touching it. phantom taking all apps back to the main screen. I cant restart, turn off, use any apps at all, I cant even get into the settings to factory reset anything. I did manage to do a clear up yesterday but it didn't seem to work. I have had the phone for 4 months. I have no insurance on this device, is it even worth taking it into a store? I'm presuming its something to do with the screen on the inside. when the screen is black and not in use its fine.
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.
My phone gets hot to the touch when fast charging, but after a while, it cools back down. Usually when it gets closer to finishing it gets cool again. And should I be worried about it heating up? I rarely fast charge for fear that the heat will cause damage
After I updated to android 5.1.1 on my S6 edge Ive lost my badge app icon aka notification count for whats app textra and other apps that used to show notification counts on them prior to the update ( android 5.0.2). I am using the normal touchwiz launcehr that came with my phone. I have used it as well before the update.
Go to HOME screen, swipe down from top to reveal actions and click on SETTINGS WHEEL in upper right corner. Under settings click on ACCOUNTS under Personal and your accounts should be displayed. Click on MORE (3 vertical dots) in the top right and "Turn on auto sync" should be displayed.
I was "playing" with my phone and first tried the fingerprint, which i had trouble getting in after that. Then i tried the 4 digit code. I went back in to change it back to swipe but it is no longer an option. It says it is turned off by administrator, encryption policy or credential storage. Not sure what I did, but I need getting swipe back. Should have been working instead of playing anyhow...
How I would go with setting my phone back to factory settings after it was rooted "i purchased it like this" Bare in mind i live in Australia and my model is SM-G900I and im locked to the Australian OPTUS network, I am needing the factory ROM so i can reset the phone, been trying to find one but have had no luck...
I have gotten the inside of my phone wet and now the menu and back buttons click on their own, it's really annoying so I just want to disable the buttons and use assistant cursor that is built in the phone.
I want to transfer _everything_ from my Galaxy S3 to a new LG G3 (verizon version, btw, not rooted). I know that Lollipop has some ability, but I also want all the apps and app data, including acct passwords, wifi passwords, SMS, MMS, contacts, photos, etc.
