Lumia Icon :: How To Keep Phone From Locking When Connected To Friendly WiFi Or Bluetooth

Aug 21, 2015

There is an app for android phones that prevents the phone from locking when it is connected to "approved" wifi or bluetooth connections.

Is there something like this for my Lumia Icon?

This allows me to keep it from locking while in the car or at home and then when disconnected it goes into the lock mode based on time frame selected as in when leaving the car and no longer connected to the bluetooth.

Having to enter the PIN every time I want to access the phone at home ( after time out ) is a pain. I would assume the app would be able to "disable" the lock timeout function when connected to specified wifi or bluetooth connections.

Lumia 950 :: Phone Bluetooth Reporting (Connected Voice) Only With Car Stereo

Dec 9, 2015

I recently switched from a BlackBerry Z30 to the unlocked Lumia 950 Dual-SIM. I have been slowly moving things over and so far it has been working out OK until last night. That's when I tried to pair my 950 with my 2010 Toyota Prius. No matter what I do, it only reports "Connected Voice" but no music.

I was able to Bluetooth connect and stream music on my Z30, Z10, and my wife's iPhone 4 and 6, so I don't think this is an issue with my car. I looked around online and in the forums and saw others reporting issues with 8.1 and a couple with 10, but there really wasn't a fix that I could see that applied to my situation.

Lumia 1520 :: How To Get Notifications Sounds To Come Through Phone With Bluetooth Connected

Apr 30, 2014

I have 8.1 on my 1520 and use my Bluetooth headset 97% of the time. I leave it connected all the time and noticed that I do not hear audible incoming text messages, e-mail alerts etc....... The alert sounds come through the Bluetooth headset, so just because I have my Bluetooth connected to my 1520 doesn't mean that I wear my headset all the time, so if I'm not wearing the headset a text message for example will come in and play the alert through the headset but I won't hear it obviously, so I have to check my phone periodically to see if I have text messages or e-mails that have come in.

My wife has even complained that I don't respond to her text messages right away the way I use to when I had my Note 2. On the Note my Bluetooth would be connected just like I do with my 1520, but the sounds/alerts would still be through the phone and audible for me to hear unless I put the phone on silent. Is this an oversight on MS part? Or just something that'll be fixed when the official 8.1 update rolls out???

Lumia 1020 :: Nokia Phone Only Stays Connected To WiFi When Plugged In

Jul 27, 2014

My new Lumia 1020 was connected to wifi when I began setting it up. I got a data usage warning message the next day, so I made sure it was still connected to wifi - then I got another warning message advising me more charges were being applied to the data plan. I called ATT and explained and was told that the 4GLTE runs all kinds of stuff in the background that uses data and to turn the data off. I did - since then, no more data usage - however - it will not stay connected to wifi after a time out unless it is plugged in. It still shows that its connected to wifi but its not.

Lumia Icon :: Bluetooth Audio On The Phone

Jul 11, 2014

I recently updated my Nokia 928 to a Nokia Icon. Ever since, I have had intermittent problems with my Bluetooth audio in my Acura TSX. The song will sometimes breakup or skip, almost like an old record with a scratch. Despite reminiscing about the good old days of record albums, this is a real nuisance.

Lumia Icon :: Bluetooth Connection Fails - Phone Does Not Recognize Radio

Aug 12, 2014

Nokia Icon received last week from Verizon. I generally like the phone and am excited about using it since I am a Windows user and want to take advantage of using my phone with Windows PC. Heard great things about this phone and wanted to try it after years of Android use. I have heard complaints about lack of apps but I am not an apps user except for the most basic ones. My problem is more with connecting to other devices. After receiving phone, downloading updates to installed apps out of the box, I have had problems with connecting/staying connected to WiFi. Had to reboot phone to get any recognition of networks. Working better now. Bluetooth is the current problem.

Phone does not recognize radio. Just searches and searches. Talked to both Verizon and Alpine Stereo. Alpine says I need to update a file since the head unit is four years old. Took Icon to my wife's brand new Escalade and it will not recognize it either. Just searches away. So, four year old or brand new units don't seem to have been set up for Windows phones.

Lumia 1320 :: WiFi And Bluetooth Shutting Off And Random Phone Reboots

Mar 18, 2015

I have a 1320 that I got brand new back on Black Friday from Cricket. The problem is after it has been on for a while, the wireless and/or bluetooth or both shutoff. When I bring the status bar down, the wireless icon and/or the bluetooth icon will be cleared out and not active. If I try to turn it back on, nothing happens, the icons stay black. I reboot and usually that fixes it but not always. Sometimes I have to reboot it a couple of times.

Also my phone sometimes reboots when I'm using the GPS to track my bike rides when the phone is in my bag. I know that because when I get to the end of my ride and check the app, Cyclometer, it stays "it has been shut off, do you want to resume" or something to that effect and then I resume it and a portion of my ride is missing from when it apparently has rebooted. I also have had it reboot on me in the middle of something that doesn't happen often.

My phone is on 8.1 and has no more pending updates. this is eating up my data plan because I normally use wireless at home. I also can't use my bluetooth speaker while riding because if I connect my bluetooth speaker to my phone, the bluetooth will shut off after about 15-25 minutes of use. It first starts to become somewhat intermittent for couple of minutes then bluetooth shuts off altogether.

LG G3 :: Why Does WiFi Drop When Bluetooth Is Connected

Sep 23, 2015

Yesterday my wifi started dropping and my phone was unable to find/connect to my home wifi. After some internet searching, I restarted the phone, to no avail. Then I pulled the battery out, no luck there. Finally a read that shutting the bluetooth off can fix the problem. Well, yes that does work. But I actually use my bluetooth regularly with my wifi.So I guess my question is, is there any way to remedy this?It started happening out of the blue yesterday. No recent updates, no new have have been downloaded recently. The only thing I did was turn my mobile data off. It seems like the issue started once I turned the mobile data back on. But turning my mobile data off is not a new thing for me.

Motorola Droid 3 :: Not Connected To A Bluetooth Device, The Icon Is White (gray)?

Oct 11, 2011

I'm seeing a problem since the update. When my phone is not connected to a bluetooth device, the icon is white (gray). When it is connect, it is blue. Sometime when I power off my headset (Motorola HX-1 or H17txt) I notice the icon stays blue.his is bothersome becuase I'm not sure if something else is connecting to my phone. I check the wireless settings and all my devices will show Paired but not connected.Anyone else seeing this issue? I'm in NYC a lot and call me crazy but I worry about these kind of things. Back in the analog cell phone days, my phone would get cloned at least every other month going over the GWB resulting in $3-4k in cell bills.

Xperia Z2 :: WiFi Dropping When Connected To Bluetooth

Dec 15, 2014

I am having a strange issue when using both Bluetooth and Wifi simultaneously.

This happens pretty regularly when using the Spotify app whilst having the phone audio connected to a Bluetooth speaker. The pairing process works without issue. However, as soon as I begin searching the app for music, and select a track for playing, the WiFi connection drops. Sometimes It eventually reconnects, other times I have to go back to settings and manually select the network once again.

During the connection drop, I can still see the Wifi network and all my other devices still remain connected. Rebooting the doesnt fix it, nor does disabling/enabling the wifi. Its rendering the phone useless for music streaming!

Motorola Droid Razr :: Data Icon While WiFi Is Connected?

Jun 13, 2012

I noticed that the 4g data icon remains on when a WiFi connection is active on my Razr Maxx. Is this normal behavior?The reason I'm asking is because the 3g icon used to disappear on my Droid X when WiFi was connected, I thought the Maxx would behave in the same way.

Motorola Droid Razr :: 3G Icon Stays On When WiFi Is Connected?

Feb 11, 2012

Noticed lately that when I enable my Wifi connection that the 3G icon will stay active at the same time as the Wifi icon (I live in Northern New Jersey, no 4G for me). In this state, the Wifi icon is blue and the 3G icon is white. Usually when you activate wifi and it is done connecting the 3G icon goes away completely. Was thinking maybe one of my installed apps hosed this up. Tried running the phone in safe mode to see if it would change anything, but the condition persisted. Not a big deal, wifi works's more of a problem with the owner (me) who can't seem to let things like this go

Lumia 1020 :: No Ringer Volume Slider When Bluetooth Connected

Nov 20, 2014

I've just noticed on my Lumia 1020 that when I have a Bluetooth headset connected to it I don't have the option of adjusting the Ringer volume as the slider disappears. You can see in the screenshot that I only get the one slider for Bluetooth volume.

Is this normal? I found below a topic where someone thought it was normal..if I have the headset connected, but sitting on the desk beside me waiting for a phone call, and I want to adjust the ringer volume. I don't want to have it always in my ear when not on a phone call, and I would've thought the ringer volume for the phone should always be available? Volume/Mute for Windows 8.1

Lumia Icon :: Bluetooth Power Usage

Mar 11, 2015

I've never really used the Bluetooth on the icon before and wanted to know what the power drain would be like. I have the Denim update. A little background is that I want to use Bluetooth to connect to my car while commuting for phone calls. Do people just leave the blue tooth on all the time even when walking around? Or do you just turn it on when you get into the car

Lumia Icon :: Why Can't Pair Bluetooth Since The Denim Update

Feb 17, 2015

I have a JBL Micro external speaker (small, round and colorful). On 8.0 it connected beautifully on BT with my Icon; with Denim, I can't seem to pair it. I have a Jabra BT earpiece that has worked before and after the upgrade to Denim, so I know BT is working.

I have no expertise in these matters other than knowing that I have a connection or I do not.

Google Nexus 5 :: Bluetooth Is Showing Connected And Audio Plays Through Phone Speakers?

I have several bluetooth speakers. I'll pair a speaker (UE boom in this case), connect the phone to the speaker and start to play some music. The audio comes out of the phone speakers. I had the phone "forget" the bluetooth speaker and then re-paired, no dice, audio still comes through the phone speakers. The same thing happens with my car sometimes. I've tried everything.

Galaxy S6 :: New Phone Connected To WiFi Without Password?

Jul 30, 2015

I thought it was very strange that after taking home my new Galaxy S6, that when I prompted it to connect to my personal password protected (WPA/WPA2) Wi-Fi, that it connected with no problems and never asked for a password.

That prompted me to check the security for my Wi-Fi, which is still in place. I use the Cisco Linksys EA6300 for my Wi-Fi. I have always been prompted for a password when first connecting. Maybe it was me signing into my Google account? Maybe it stores Wi-Fi passwords?

Galaxy S5 :: Why Won't Phone Stay Connected To WiFi

Nov 23, 2014

I've never had a problem connecting to my home wifi, everything was working fine on Friday, I left the house, went to my girlfriends and my phone connected to her wifi without a problem as usual. I returned home on Saturday and my S5 failed to connect to my wifi, I connected it manually and it connects and disconnects almost instantly. I have 5 other devices including a samsung galaxy note 4 in the house which all work perfectly fine. I've tired switching the router off and on again and that makes no difference, I removed the phone battery for 5 minutes and it then connects to the wifi for about 5-10 seconds then again disconnects, what else I can try....

Galaxy S5 :: Phone Connected To WiFi But No Internet

Sep 22, 2015

I recently moved off to college and for the first two weeks the WiFi worked great. Then all of a sudden the WiFi would say connected and strong signal but all of my apps would say check connection. I've been going over my limit on mobile data because of this and recently I went home for the weekend and the phone had no problem using my WiFi at home. Also anywhere on campus my laptop and old iPhone 4 get great WiFi service so the problem has to be with my S5.
