So I noticed that some apps utilize a floating menu button (I think that's because the s6 doesn't have a dedicated menu button?) that appears like a circle with 3 dots on the screen wich you can move around.
However it appears to somehow be broken, as when I tap the button a menu appears for a fraction of a second and then disappears again, not giving enough time to do anything and of course rendering such an app useless.
I got my Blackberry Bold 9700 from AT&T about a month and a half ago, and recently I've been having problems opening texts. It'll say I have a new text and I'll go in my inbox to open it but when I click, it won't let me read it. It'll let me open the ones before it, but not the unread one. Even if I click the the menu button then "open" it still doesn't work.
Why does voice control keep opening up without pressing the home button? This happens when i'm listening to music or watching netflix. The songs will also skip and begin to fast forward without any buttons being pressed. I've done a restore on my iphone but this has not resolved the issue.
my 3gs iphone took 'the plunge' out of my pocket and into my toilet the other day. i was not happy. i immediately put the phone in some rice in a ziplock bag and waited. and prayed.today i took the phone out of its grain cocoon and was thrilled to see that it still worked. only problem? the home button is completely unresponsive. obviously i think this is a hardware issue, but what's really strange is that every time i restart the iphone (a few times), upon power up my phone goes immediately into voice control as if i pressed and held the home button. figuring there still may need some drying, i put the phone back in the rice for another 12 hours. questions:
1. does this whole voice control aspect put a software spin on this problem?
2. after i give the phone some more time with the rice should i do an update/restore?
3. should the genius bar be my next stop?
4. are there any other solutions out there besides this one: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=615755
so over the weekend, while I was away from home, the home button on my iPhone 4 stopped working. It happened suddenly, and the only preceding events I can think of were that (1) we had heavy rain but I kept the phone in my pocket and neither my pocket nor the phone were wet when I took it out after the rain had passed (2) I downloaded the F1 timing app which initially had some crashing issues. I'm not sure if either of these contributed but it's possible.While the home button wouldn't work at all when pressed, I found that the voice control was starting automatically (and calling my contacts without me knowing). This would suggest a long press of the home button I think however I couldn't replicate it with the button. To avoid calling more contacts from my pocket I turned the phone off but it turned itself straight back on and always went straight to voice control after starting up. I finally got around this by leaving the phone on flight mode while not in use. I also found the accessibility setting to have an on-screen home button which made the phone slightly usable but not ideal.
When I charged the phone that evening it came up with the recovery screen requesting that I plug into iTunes. As I was away and without my laptop I was not able to do this but got through the weekend by cancelling lots of voice control pop ups and a lot of flight mode use. Now I'm home I have connected to iTunes and a restore was required. I followed this right through, the restore completes and when it reconnects to iTunes it says it needs to restore again. At this stage I can unplug it, turn it off and on again and use it.If it's turned on while unplugged it will start ok and then can be connected to iTunes and synced but the voice control will still start automatically after turning on and the home button does not work at all.If it's turned on while plugged in it will be in recovery mode and request a restore again.
I cant use the volumecontrol on my IPhone 4S. Its just a few weeks old, it worked earlier, the notificationsounds works, the ringsignal works. But there is no sound when i liste to music, film, games. There are no control for volume on the screen either....I have restardet the phone from star
Having difficulty with voice control when driving at highway speeds? I drive a 2007 VW GLI and once I'm over 50 MPH I can't get the voice control to function -- even is I scream, yell or talk loudly at it.
I just downloades some MP3 files on my BB. I only can control the music (stop, pause or mute it), while I am in the music interface ('now playing' mode). When I go to an other interface or home screen, i cannot control the audio with the buttons anymore.
A couple of weeks ago the light on the back and end call button went out. It came back about a day later. Those same two buttons went out this morning and now the menu button will not work correctly. When I hit it, it types "jk" into the search menu.
So I connected my Bell Vibrant to my Win7 X64 PC via Bluetooth, and all sorts of funny issues happen when attempting to control dialing from my PC, and use my computer as a speakerphone. To begin with, the "Hangup" button doesn't work, plus whenever I press the "Connect" button to "Use this computer as a headset or speakerphone for calls on your phone (Galaxy S)," the phone starts dialing the number written in the "Make a call to this number:" field (when there's a number written there--otherwise it would start dialing the latest dialed number) without my having to press the "Connect" button. Ain't that funny? Anyone else going through this?
Recently I have updated the OS on my Bold 9700 (version 6.0 bundle 2718 - v126.96.36.1995, platform 188.8.131.52).The problem is that the menu button does not work at all when I'm in the e-mail, text, or messages.Also, the emails would not open if I just click on them - I need to hold the trackpad button and then select "Open" in the square window that appears on top.The menu button behavious is the same in all other modes, e.g. camera, browser.
It keeps telling me that the c: memory is full and that i should delete some items, however when i try to, there is hardly anything on the c:. Also the phone only works sporadically for about five minutes after switching on and after that the menu button and the touch screen do not work properly and i am unable to make any calls or texts, but can still recieve calls.
Also it is telling me that the sim memory is full and remains full despite deleting text messages. Has anyone else experienced such problems or know how i can fix these problems?
After half a day new iPhone 3GS stopped working properly. Home button doesn't respond. It works only when I plug iPhone to the computer.Voice cotrol runs by himself unexpectadly. iPhone 3GS with preinstalled iOSx 5.0.1. Should I update to the new 5.1 or downgrade to the 4.0 version?
After the latest update, when I'm texting someone and try to use the voice/microphone icon, it doesn't work anymore. The 3 purple dots just shake almost like they're saying "no" to me. A feature I found very useful doesn't work anymore.
I have a problem with my home button. It works every time I press it and iPhone act correctly, but the pressing itself isn't as it should be. So the button doesn't work soft, elastically and neatly. It feels like there's something inside the mechanism. And the sound of pressing the button isn't typical.But the iPhone is almost new and it works great apart from the button. I've searched for it on the Internet but it seems that I'm the only person with this problem, because the button actually works and the phone responds to pressings every time.
Ever since I installed the iOS 5.1 update on my iPhone 4, the home button does not work at all! I've tried every trouble shooting solution I could find. I've Restarted, I can't hard reset because the home button doesn't work, I've restored from back up, I've restored as new, I've vacuumed out and gently used a tooth brush in the port below the home button in attempt to remove any dust. I've tried opening a factory installed app such as Maps, Safari, Stocks etc and held the top button until the "Slide to power off" showed and then held down the home button until it went to home screen except it didn't go to the home screen at all the "slide to power off" disappeared after a while. I have extremely intermittent response with the Home Button. If i press it continuously it will work after 27 presses one time or 9 presses another but never when I try to do a hard reset and 9.999 times out of 10 it doesn't work.
Since I upgraded to 5.1, I encounter the above mentioned problem. On tapping the camera icon on the locked iPhone screen, I can't launch the built-in camera. Nothing happens. (I must unlock the iPhone and tap the camera icon in order to take a picture).
1. I didn't have this problem after upgrading to iOS 5.0
2. I can still access the music buttons on the locked screen on iOS 5.1 though.
This afternoon my Iphone 3gs started to vibrate continously for about 2/3 minsutes whilst having a black screen. I then tried to bring the home screen up and none of the buttons would work. The power button hasn't worked for sometime so the remedy of holding the power and home button together won't work.
Is there anything I can do or is it completely dead with no chance of survival?
