Hi I just picked up the Galaxy S Vibrant last friday and can not seem to get the swype function to work. I looked into the setting and see that the keypad sweep is on however do not see the swype function on the qwert key pad. Am I missing something here? Do I need to install swype keypads?
I have Gingerbread UGKG2. When I first started swyping I'll admit I didn't really know what I was doing. I'd correct a word and if it said "would you like to add 'es' to the dictionary" (or whatever I had typed in) I just said yes. Now it keeps putting in these non-words and I can't get rid of them. I've seen the threads where people point out where the dictionary is found in other O/S's but not this one. I've also seen people post that you just highlight the word and you'll have the option of deleting it from the dictionary, no so on my phone..
i have just downloaded the new firmware and was wondering wich files were the PDA file and the PHONE file as on the update it says moden on one of them. i have already found the CSC just its been a while ive done this and cant remember if the moden file was th PDA or the PHONE file?
My Galaxy SII had to have it's screen replaced (I'll hold my hands up, I dropped it). Before the repair I'd updated the phone to 2.3.5 which saw significant improvements such as battery life etc.During the repair the phone was reset to 2.3.4 and now I can't get it to update to 2.3.5 either via Kies or over the air.
I mean by before, I have noted other posts refer to factory reset, cache clearing, and a couple of other bits/bobs, what is the best route from scratch? I have done a small list below, if you can put it into do first, 2nd, 3rd etc and add any other actions I may have missed off? I want this to be as near a perfect upgrade as possible...Fully charge battery Factory reset + How to get to (the button route) Cache Clearing + How to get to (the button route)Back up and what needs backing up, and what not to back up Any other missed off procedures before updating?
I need help updating to android 4.0. I have been going trough pages and reading, but there is simply too much stuff that i cant understand. Here is the situation: I can't update to android 4.0 through kies. What i need to do?
I have rooted my phone earlier, installed custom ROM, and then installed android 2.3.4 stock firmware. Information above tells everything about my SGS2. I can't find android 4.0 firmware download links, or instructions how to even do it. I have odin, and before i rooted my phone i took this information up what my phone used to be
baseband 19100xxki4 kernel i9100xwki8
To be hones, i don't know what those even mean. I only know that now they are different, and because my CSC is wrong i cant update with kies. I installed application called CSC select and it says my CSC is KOR. I also read that it needed to be NEE(nordic countries), to be able to update with kies. How ever CSC select application doesn't have a NEE available...
I've been told by Samsung technical support that updating from Gingerbread 2.3.X to ICS won't be available over the air because it's such a large file and the risk of updating OTA is too high. So [according to Samsung technical support] the only way to update to ICS (other than via ODIN) will be via Kies.
Am I correct in thinking that to have a hassle free upgrade from Version 2.3.X to ICS you should do a factory reset prior to downloading the update then another factory reset after you've downloaded the update?Also can you still update OTA after doing the first factory reset?Is it better to update OTA rather than use Kies? Also do the apps that you downloaded under 2.3.X still work under ICS?Most of all is ICS worth it?
I am having alot of problems with updating my samung galaxy s2.everytime i connect my phone to my laptop and open up Kies it tells me i have a software update so i try update and it looks like its updating but every few mins it stops and tells me " The internet is not connected do you want to check the internet connection and try again ? " i retry and it starts off again but stops a min or 2 later.There doesnt seem to be a problem with my connection cause i can run websites and other internet programs without any trouble.
I''m trying to update the firmware on my Galaxy S2 (or GT-i9100) phone through Kies 2.1.1 on Windows 7 x64.. If finds the update available for the device and shows windows to update firmware. The new/latest update version available is PDA-KL1/PHONE:KL1/CSC:KL1(INU) After clicking to update, it downloads the update and goes into next step of "Preparing firmware update components", but then the process terminates after few seconds and nothing happens. The phone reconnects to kies s/w and again the firmware upgrade window is shown. So cannot update the firmware.
When Jelly Bean becomes available either OTA or via Kies will I have to go though the same procedure I had to when I updated to ICS i.e. back-up, factory reset then download and install ICS then another factory reset?
Ive had no problems with my sgs2 since getting it apart from battery life being very poor and only lasting a day at work, so a friend told me to turn on the power saving, i cudnt get along with that as i like my phone bright and fast...so i turned it off.
Since doing this my emails no longer update unless i click refresh in the gmail app? im no longer getting notifications for new emails and i cant find any setting to stop this?
I'm on the Three network in the UK and upgraded to ICS yesterday. Since then the S2 continually crashes and restarts every few minutes. I took a backup before I upgraded although I didn't backup my photos. Because of the constant crashing I can't use the phone long enough to do much of anything. When I try and run apps, like Google Play the S2 becomes unresponsive. Not sure if my problems are caused by an app, but at one point I did manage to get a list of all the apps that were running:
So, simple question, is there, or is there not a way to turn off auto-correct on the S6, for the Swype keyboard?
My title is as it is because, no matter how concise your search is, on here, or on google, searching ANYTHING for turning off autocorrect will give you results for every other device in the universe but the s6.
The menu is different, the settings are different, there is no "auto-complete" in the menu...the way you do it s5 and prior does NOT apply. Turning off some other option, like the auto-predict, auto-capitolize, etc, etc...does NOT work.
I have an s6 and the factory installed 4x1 clock/weather app no longer works. The clock still keeps time, but the weather icon on the right hand side does not show the current weather, will not update, nor will it allow me to touch the widget and enter into the settings/different cities. It was working fine up until about a week ago. I've tried restarting my phone and removing/re-positioning the widget, but no luck. It can't be uninstalled as it came with OS.
My S2 is only about four or five months old and I recently started noticing that it is not alerting on text messages anymore. I checked the settings and the obvious stuff such as the volume being on and a ringtone for text notification is set. I just went to unlock my phone and I noticed that the phone did not play the click or pop noise as I hit the keys to unlock the phone. Again, the volume was on....maybe this is a larger issue...
I've managed to browse to an online forum (using the Google Search widget, I think!) on my phone - most things work fine, but if I hit "reply" to a forum post the text-box opens, and it even establishes a cursor in there - but my phone's keyboard does not pop up like it usually does if one clicks in a text-box. So I cant insert any text Insert text in forum box?It's a board based forum powered by Moodle, if that makes any difference?
I am new to the world of Android (previous BB User), I have both a gmail and an ISP email in my phone, and for some reason when i compose a ISP email, the body of the email is underlined, I have looked through the settings and cannot find anything that relates. If I send a email through gmail its is fine. I have even tried tapping the info in a notepad app, copy & paste into the body & it still underlines the body only
I sent an SMS text message to someone yesterday from the default Messaging app and could thereafter see it sitting there in the "Conversations" list. My phone then ran out of battery and turned itself off overnight after which I've since given it a full recharge. However, that text message I sent has now disappeared from the conversations list and although I can see the start of it under the contact's name in the Contacts app, it responds by telling me it's been deleted when I try to select it. I did see an option in the settings to "Delete Old Messages" which was enabled but given that I had a total of 1 text message on the phone then I assume that was not the culprit.
just like to say that this is my very first post in this forum. I have been the proud owner of my Samsung Galaxy S II for the past week now. Couple of things to ask that is annoying me a bit though, and just wondering if there's a solution to these. Consider these scenarios:
First one: I receive a text from a friend who says that he has a new number. Because he's in my contacts, I can simply add his number to it. So I open the text, I press the menu key and tap "Add to Contacts". I then find him and tap his name. Usually it appears underneath the rest of the numbers, but because he has Facebook and I've selected to have my friends from there appear in my contacts, it doesn't. Apart from manually typing it in myself, is there a way to add his number?
Secondly: I play some music using the built-in music player (Applications > Music). Once the track starts playing, I press the back button continuously until I reach the home page/idle screen. To go back into it quickly, I pull down the status bar down from the top, and tap the Music panel. From here, how can I go back to a previous screen within the Music player to select a playlist, switch to a new artist, etc? The back button this time returns you to the home/idle screen. The list button just shows the current playlist that is being played. What would be good is to see that scrolling menu at the top again.
