HTC :: Droid Whenever At Home-screen / Tilt Phone To Left / Will Start Switching To Another Screen
Apr 30, 2010
Whenever im at the homescreen, and i tilt the phone to the left..it will start switching to another screen..when i do this in the browser/message or something the cursor will start moving which messes everything up..is there a problem with it or is this a setting?
I recently noticed that my screen doesn't respond to go on landscape mode when I tilt the phone.. Auto-rotate is on, I never experienced this before.. I saw that other ppl also had this problem, some with the update.
Is there an app or a built in function of the S6 that allows saving and switching how widgets and folders are arranged on the home screen? Some of the widgets and apps/folders I use during the working week are not relevant during the weekend. Is there a quick way of switching between work mode and weekend mode without having to manually delete and re-arrange widgets and apps/folders on the home screen?
I got my tour about 6 weeks ago, and am learning something new everyday. I lovingly call the phone "my smarter than me phone" I have used this forum alot to answer questions, and for the most part am pretty comfortable with the phone now.
The message indicator on the home screen sometimes displays to the left of the time, and sometimes to the right. I thought at first it was an am/pm thing, but 10 minutes ago (8:41 ayem now) it was on the right, and now it just jumped to the left.
my x10 mini is stuck in a cycle of switching its self on and off again before it reaches the home screen, been like it for 2 days, was fully charged when it started and drained the battery eventually doing this, put it on charge and it started the cycle again, and i can't connect it to a P.C via usb because it's not on long enough to recognize the device.
I am currently traveling and I would like to chose the strongest company in this region. The problem is that when I chose: Menu - Settings - Device - Operator selection - manual, the phone switches back to the home screen.It means my Asha is not looking for any other operator. It remains at the end on automatically.Since I have the phone it is like this, latest update is installed and no change.
I have the Samsung Galaxy S6 with Android 5.1.1. Clicking central icons so good, but if the left click-activate the right and vice versa, so it is with the keyboard.My phone will rotee, install the recovery and install a stoc-rom, which one does not remember why I did several tests to see which I liked more.
I have done everything known: factory reset of the two known forms, install multiple stoc-rom, firmwares of several countries, including return to the previous version of Android 5.0.1, which I see, can not go back. All this with the Odin program. Also with Samsung Smart Switch "Emergency Recovery and initialization software."
After installing the IOS 5.1.1 update on my iphone 4S, it left a picture on my phone screen of a USB cable pointing to the iTunes icon...i connected the phone to my macbook and it said this is a phone " IN RECOVERY' and that i needed to hit restore button for this phone to be able to communicate with iTunes ? it was working perfectly fine before i did this recommended download and installation ?
I recently bought Nokia 7020 Flip phone and found this problem with primary display which is 2.2 inches. Problem is you cannot read out the screen when you tilt the screen even 30 degrees. Photos just look like as negatives when you tilt the phone to 60 degrees angle. You can see the correct display on the screen only when it is exactly in front of your face. Is this a problem with my phone or it the problem with Nokia 7020 Flip phone itself.
Nokia Dealer told me that Nokia has introduce LCD screen for this phone and not TFT screen as found in any other model of Nokia, hence this is a normal behavior. You will see the display correctly only when it is exactly in front of your face/eyes.
I cannot check with any other dealer as they do not have any demo model of the phone which I can operate. All are factory sealed and dealer refuse to open the box to get hands-on experience. Even he refused to take back this phone saying this is normal behavior with this model, when I told him that I want to return this phone for this screen display problem.
I still cannot believe that Nokia will introduce this type of screen in this newer model, where user will have to keep the screen in from of his/her eyes without tilting even 30 degrees to see the correct display on the screen.Whether Nokia is compromising on quality to reduce the cost? Could anyone please confirm on this behavior of Nokia 7020 flip screen.
Happened a good three or 4 times on a call yesterday. I was talking on the phone and made sure I locked the screen and then ever couple minutes the screen would switch back n forth between that and speaker and nope it wasn't my face hitting the button on the screen.
Just discovered my home screen is blank, so I thought I had accidentally changed/moved it when I turned on "Easy Mode" to check that out. Switched back to "Standard Mode", but found my home screen gone, with a blank page in it's place. I found some directions on how to move pages around, making one a home screen. I selected the page I wanted as home screen and moved it to the page where the white house icon is highlighted. I was done but noticed nothing had changed. Home page still blank, so I did it again. I find that whenever I try creating my home screen page by moving it to the highlighted white house icon, the white house icon shifts to the left, remaining blank.
I got my refurb in the mail today and the left side of the screen sounds like someone spilled soda under the screen and it dried. So when I type, especially with typing in landscape it clicks and makes this weird sound like there is something sticky under the screen. Anyone else had this issue? I called Verizon and they are sending me another phone overnight...but still...
Up until about four weeks ago, things were just peachy on the Auto Home and Navigation screens. Now, no matter what the brightness widget is set to, when I have my droid docked on the windshield, I can't see the menu(s). Also, the navigation screen is MUCH darker, but managable. Both these changes took place at the same time.
Never had this problem before but it started in the last few days... I can no longer add apps to my homescreens by selecting "add to homescreen". I can move them around, delete them, add widgets and shortcuts and stuff like that. BUT I can not add an app by selecting the 'add to homescreen' option. I cleared teh cache and am not runnng any boot loaders of the type. Up to date droid x.
On my Droid X, I was able to add pictures along with Widgets and shortcuts to my home screens. I just got the Droid 4 and am unable to figure out how to do this. I Get to the "Add to home" screen, click widgets, and selected My Gallery. But I do not want to add a social media account, I just want to add a couple pictures of my dog and husband.
It has been now 4 months i have this Z2, unitl now everything was working fine, last day the battery drained completely, 0% and it got off. after some time i connected the phone to wall charger using original charger and cable , the screen boots and sony xperia flash and then it get off and then again keeps boot loop,
The RED led comes on and then off , and screen flash SE and keeps looping... i tried making power off holding UP + power nothing works.
i tried connecting to PCC but it also doesnt detect and keep searching phone. i tried repairing using PCC but it doesnt detect phone. i tried holding DOWN volume during power on but green led doesnt come ...
After playing a game, or using Gmail app, or using the stock texting s/w, etc. when I go back to the home screen there is this bothersome latency with repopulating the screen with my icons and the "basic icons" (such as phone, texting, apps, etc.) at the bottom. Is there something I can try with the app manager, or some other utility that will tell me what's causing this latency?
Now that I have ICS, I am debating whether to keep my 3rd party home screen replacement or use the stock one. Looking for opinions from this group. Also, are we limited to the 5 home screens stock provides or can we add more? OAN: So far, my battery life is MUCH improved and I got the update yesterday so if it still needs a few days to "settle" in, then I'm going to be one happy D4 owner. It also doesn't get as hot as it used to.
