Samsung Galaxy S II :: When A Text Does Come, The Actual Message Quickly Scrolls Across The Black Bar At The Top Of The Home Screen?
Feb 17, 2012
seems a bit lame compared to other questions! But, how do I set it so that when I recieve a text, it beeps every two minutes or so instead of just once? I can't find it anywhere! Also, when a text does come, the actual message quickly scrolls across the black bar at the top of the home screen..can I remove this? I would normally have the screen locked anyway but if i'd just used it and left it on the table for instance.
Home screen always looks washed out but yet, apps, videos, pics, etc. all look fine? In fact the skin tones etc. in vids and pics are much more realistic than most phones.
I mean, I know this isn't an amoled and has a reputation for being less vibrant than other phones. But I just notice the home screen and icons always look much more washed out than actual content on the phone which looks great.
After I send a text message in google messenger the screen scrolls up and I have to scroll down quite a bit to get to the current part of the conversation. I didn't seem to see anything in the settings.
My Torch 9800 has developed a weird problem with the text icon on the home screen. When I tap on it, my desktop messages open instead?it used to work fine when I first got the phone. The only way I can write a text is to select a contact from the contacts list and then select to send that person a text message. This all works but is a pain. I'm sure this is just finger trouble and a setting has been changed somewhere but where.
approximately every 4 or 5 days my phone will just freeze, usually on a black screen.Initially I removed the battery to re-boot, however the last couple of times I managed to get it to reboot with a long power button push. This latest time it was frozen on the home screen but would not respond to anything other than re-boot
In the upper right corner of my screen, when I'm typing a message (email, text, BBM) there is a black icon that contains the letters 'EN'. This appears over the 'send' (envelope) icon. What does it mean?
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.
Periodically I go to turn the display on via the power button and the screen is either completely black (powered off) or I only see a blue led light flash in the indicator area. My only way to power on the phone is to pull the battery, replace and power back on.
Whenever I receive a text message from a sender like American Airlines where their name/number is a random set of numbers, it will not remove itself from the home page list even if I delete it. If I select it after I have deleted it, it's just a blank message. Any ideas as to how to resolve this? The only thing that has worked for me so far is to reset the phone. I don't want to have to do that each time a message of this type comes in to my inbox.
since i update my phone to ICS 4.0.4 i experience camera issues. When in camera or video mode the screen is black (cant see nothing). But it works. If i take shot it flicker for split of second and shows image taken for that spit of second then goes back to black screen.
before ICS update it was on gingerbread. I tried with KIES but phone developed a fault. It wasn't allowing me to pass "Samsung Galaxy SII" screen. I went to local shop and they sort it out. So i don't know how they did it. Two days later i find that camera is faulty.
When I try to load the game "0.01 seconds pro", the screen turns black and I can hear only sound, and then after a few seconds the game crashes.. I tried updating, reinstalling, turning the device off and on.. but nothing works.
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.
i have the samsung galaxy s2. Just wondering where i find the notification for lost calls or incoming messages.i mean : when the phone goes into standby (batterisaving) and screen goes "black" , id like to know if it is possible to have a light blinking that notify my that i have had a missed call or got a text message. as it is now i have to press middle button to check.
A new problem has developed with my phone. It's hard to describe but it looks as if there is fluid under the screen (I don't have a screen protector btw). You can push the bubble of fluid (if that's what it is) around with your finger and see it move under the screen. Most unsettling. I'm at a complete loss to know what to do. MY PHONE AT NO TIME HAS GOT WET OR EVEN SPLASHED - I'VE KEPT IT COMPLETELY DRY. I HAVEN'T EVEN HANDLED IT WITH WET HANDS.
The problem is only visible on the home screen and it's not affecting the functionality of the phone in any way. However, it's a bad problem because now I've lost all security on my phone - it doesn't ask for a fingerprint swipe any more so anyone can immediately gain access to my phone merely by touching the bubble.
Interestingly, the problem disappears completely if I run the Samsung Galaxy S6 4G in Safe Mode.
I've just moved to an S2 from a Samsung i8910 HD. On that phone the next events in the calendar would appear written on the home screen. It was a very useful prompt of what was happening next.Is it possible to get a similar display on the S2's home screen?
Last night I picked up my Galaxy SII and must have accidentally deleted my AccuWeather widget off my home screen. I have tried pressing and holding the screen and looked through the widgets, and yes I found the AccuWeather.com widget, but when I drag it back onto my phone home screen. I get all weather for the next five days on my home screen as well, instead of just the current weather with the temperature etc.
I'm new to Android phones made the switch from iphone. I just finished rooting my S6, get a nice black wallpaper on my phone but i cant figure out how to change the text below the icons on my home screen, right now the font is black so it cannot be seen.
