Samsung Galaxy S II :: Disable Apps Running In Background?

Jul 17, 2011

I am using Advanced Task Killer which I'm finding really useful. I have an ignore list set and it kills the apps that aren't being used regularly. However, I'm wondering why these apps keep restarting again. The sort of things that keep restarting are Gallery, Messaging, Yahoo! Messenger, Email, Skype, Maps, etc. I'm sure that I'm signed out on all of these apps and have the settings set such that they shouldn't keep restarting/synching. Are there any apps similar to 'msconfig' in Windows where you can tick which things you want to start up and what you don't?

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Messaging Remains Active In The Background After Exit

Dec 9, 2011

I opened the Messaging from one of the shortcuts at the bottom.I checked my message. I clicked the back button twice to reach my home screen.I can see that my Active applications shows that Messaging is still running?I had to "Exit" from Messaging through that.My thought was, when I hit the back button frmo the Messaging screen, it should close/exit that from the background (i.e.) it should not list in the Active Applications window?

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Change The Samsung Account In It?

Aug 8, 2011

I just purchase my sg2 phone yesterday. Unfortunately, my brother has used my phone last night and register the Samsung account in it by using his email or id. When I tried to change the account, it cannot be done cause I have to do the factory reset in privacy setting (which will erase all my personal info and downloaded applications). I don't want that to happen as well. Plus, my my brother can't even remember what the password he has used for the Samsung account I'm very pissed off now that my Samsung account belong to him and the fact that I can't do the factory reset because of him. I'll mention again, he forgot the password he used for MY SAMSUNG ACCOUNT IN MY SG2.

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Black Screen/Data Recovery?

Aug 12, 2012

This morning I left my phone in my bootbag. Came back and noticed there was a small crack not in the cover itself but the actual screen. Now the screen is black, doesn't seem like an liquid has spilt like when a screen breaks (But then what do I know?!).I got a friend to phone it, it still rings.. vibrates, the two lights either side of the button still light up.. does what it usually should. But the screen itself remains black. I plugged it into Kies via USB in the hope I could create a backup and order a new phone. But because it has a keylock on the home screen. I need to unlock that in order for Kies to connect.Is there any other way at all I can remove the sufficient data? E.g. Photo's, Videos.. as there's alot of sentimental things on there. I should really learn to start backing things up. But its always too late to say that.

IPhone :: Why Is Ipod Background 'black'

Apr 27, 2012

I'm not sure if this is a problem with my iPod, or just the way it's supposed to work.

It's an iPod, not an iPhone, but I'm using it to learn more about how the iPhone works.

I've got what I think is a second generation iPod (chrome back plate, and no camera).

Version: 4.2.1 (8C148)

Model: MB531LL

I set the "wallpaper" to the same default background as I have in my iPhone - the gray colored background with bubbles all over.

On the iPhone, this works fine.

On the iPad, the background remains black.

Is there a different setting I need to use? I think I've done everything right, and even reset the iPod to "new", but the background behind all my apps is still a solid black color.

Also, I know there's no phone, no camera, and no multitasking, but will this device function pretty much the same as an iPhone 3GS? Will I be able to install the same Wi-Fi utilities such as Skype and Viber?

iPhone 3GS, iOS 5

Galaxy S5 :: Background Data Disabled - Google Play Store Needs Background Data To Be Enabled

Jun 24, 2014

I have noticed an issue with the Galaxy S5 that apparently only occurs with the Verizon variant. I work for a place called Wireless Advocates, we are the cell phone kiosk inside of Costco. I'm asking about this because I've had three customers come in to ask about this background data issue.

I'm not sure what triggers this issue but when I try opening up google play I get the "Background Data Disabled : Google Play Store Needs background data to be Enabled" error. It then gives you the ability to either quit or enable the data. If you press enable it takes you to the account screen in settings.

When I go to Data usage the option to "restrict background data" is greyed out. You can't even select it and it isn't checkmarked either. Just to clarify, accessing the internet and other things on the phone work perfectly fine. It's just the use of Google Play that is having issues. I called Samsung customer care and they aren't aware of this issue at all. Also note that force stopping google play, play services, removing the google accounts and adding them back and rebooting the phone haven't solved it. After the reboot the phone will appear fine and then a box that says "Restricting background data".

Motorola Droid Razr :: Update Lead To Black Background?

Jul 17, 2012

Yesterday I allowed the Motorola update on my Razr Maxx & now I wish I could undo it. When I go into "Phone", "Voicemail", "Text", etc. the background is black with white font (or in the case of Text, the background is dark blue with grey lettering). I am unable to read light colored font against a dark background so am having a terrible time with this update. Is there a way to change the color of the background and make the font black? I've tried changing the Display, Wallpaper, etc but that has no effect on the default background colors of the apps.
