I have the samsung vice, and am able to download and install all applications properly, but when it comes to accessing the sd card, the phone won't let opera mobile do it. It says restricted api. But it is possible, I have another samsung and the same signed version on mini on it, I can download things right onto the card. So i'm asking if there is a way I can make the phone let java applications have full access to the phone no matter what. This would also let mgmaps use the gps chip.
for example a game called speedx 3d full&free one of the permissions it requires are phone calls / read phone status and id 'allows an application to access phone features of device. Applications with this permission can determin phone number and serial number of this phone, whether a call is active,the number that the call is connected to ect.why would a game need to know my phone number and phone serial, am i just being paranoid?
I've been trying lately to change the SMS char limit on my phone for a while now, but before I get into that, let me give you some background to why I'm doing this.I use to own a old Samsung phone, I can't remember the model, but I loved that phone! Best phone ever, anyways It had a SMS limit of 160 chars per text which was great, but the phone broke, it got ran over, and ever since I've never been able to get a phone like that one. So I'm using a vice now, and I like this phone as well, but it has a 140 char limit. Now What I'm trying to say is I looking for some support on how I can increase that limit to 160.
I've been looking around, and I'm not trying to put illegal software on the phone, more like modifying the firmware or software on the phone. This isn't a smart phone else I would get some app for it, plus I don't want to pay paying for a data plan for SMS when I have unlimited text messaging on my phone. I know this sounds dumb, why not just send 2 messages, well here the other reason, my friends all have phones that are 160 max, and my phone loves to spit them, and its so hard to read them, and I'm tired of this. This is not a network restriction as they also are on the same network. This is a phone lock down of some kind. Anyways enough ranting for me, this is what I've done so far. I've gotten my computer to read the phone using QPST, I do have the SPC, and I can change the system on the phone. All I need now is someone who knows little more then I do about this, and how I can modify this SMS limit, and make it 160 instead of 140. For both sending and receiving.
I am planning on getting a cell phone with virgin mobile canada and i was wondering which cell phone offers better features and more bang for your buck. they are all the same price at o$ with a 2 year contract. i am mostly going to use it for texting and talking and games, i am not going to be web browsing or using email.
I have had this phone on the Bell network for a little over two months and keep getting billed for mobile browser usage that I know I never intentionally use. I do not use the mobile browser/internet aspect at all, I use the phone as a phone and for texting.After the first bill came in with over $25.00 of data charges I called Bell and got the they are legit charges and maybe you should just pay us a extra $10/ month for unlimited data to save yourself some money.I now lock the face keys and have bought a phone case and don't carry the phone in my pocket at all now so I don't believe there is any accidental button pushed which causes the phone to go online.The per usage data is low 0.014 or 0.0068 megabytes per use but it happens every day and adds up.Is there a feature I may have inadvertently turned on in the phone which causes it to go online to update some thing? I've gone through the phone and do not see anything obvious.
I have a Samsung Vice SCH-r561 and when i opened the box i found that it has a data cable included. I downloaded some wall papers and ringtones to my home computer from a website and am trying to transfer them from my computer to the phone, but everytime i plug the usb cable in it says windows xp is looking for the drivers to install but it never finds any. It says it's looking for samsung cdma technologies software. Can someone direct me to where i can download the required software or is there another application that i could use for this?
Yesterday I updated my iPhone software and changed my Apple ID password.Then last night when sending a messege to my ex girlfriend and good friend, the messege sent through fine. However she text back shocked and asked why i had sent her an aggressive and insulting text. She sent me the messege I had supposedly sent her. The first half of the messege was normal but then the second half was someone else's abusive words. Also they insulted me by making comments about my photos. I'm completely confused, worried and paranoid about what has happened. Has someone intercepted the messege and edited it? Has someone hacked my phone? I have never heard of anything like this. I have turned off my phone and changed my password again.
"Frequent Locations" states that I was in Beijing, China yesterday but I haven't been to China in 4 years. It's very accurate otherwise, telling me my home, work and favourite cafe among other things. I just noticed this one location in Beijing.
Left my phone in a cab. ten min later it was turned off... I had a lock screen turned on but not the setting where it would wipe all data. I used the find my iphone app to see that its location was unavailable. Selected email me when it comes back on. few hours later i get an email and its new location but a few min later it was unavailable again. I am assuming to restore it to default settings or something. Is there a way for whomever turned it off to acquire my information on the phone? Such as email passwords, itunes passwords, contacts, etc...
Is there any way to have my "plain" bluetooth headset that is NOT A2DP stereo to playback music etc? Basically I want to listed to podcasts & books so I don't care about music or stereo. My BB Bold used to do it. My iPhone 3Gs is jailbroken.
I have downloaded various apps from blackberry app world e.g. screen muncher and have tried to set my permissions but each time i have tried allow is not an option I am not sure how to turn off promt or what to do to get my apps to work?
How many of you have the facebook app installed an working on your htc one or android device? I was going to use it but it has LOTS of permissions it needs access to from your calls,texts,changing things on your phone an alot more! How safe is it to use know all the things it has access to? To me its uncalled for because it doesnt need all those things.
Heres a list-read your texts,draw over others apps,add or modify calender events and send email to guests without owners knowledge,phone calls, record audio.
We've discussed before that Keep Awake and Location are the primary permissions to block with Access Lock. There are quite a few apps that have those permissions active that simply do not need them. Why does ES File Explorer need to know my Location for what it does?As a group we've worked through a lot of the whittling down for battery saving and smooth use of the G4 over the past few months. I'm now circling back to some things to see if I can't tighten things up even more.
So, what are some of the other permsissions we should perhaps disable by default (unless they are very obviously needed)? What does the WiFi Change (or Bluetooth Change) permission do? Or, more to the point, what potentially happens if I disable that permission?I figure there aren't a lot of things beyond Keep Awake and Location that are big battery eaters, but what say ye?
I just gave Google permission to access my contacts in order to use the Google voice feature to send texts. However, when I read the list of things that Google now has access to, I decided I want to cancel those permissions (directly call phone numbers, edit text messages, modify my contacts, read my contacts, etc). Is there any way to do this?
I realize that the new 5.0 update restricts third party apps from writing to the SD card. However, mine is not writing to the card even with apps that came installed on the phone, Camera, My Files, etc. Furthermore, when I try to backup files on my computer, it gives me an error message halfway through. Is there a way I can override the write permissions so I can go back to using my SD card? I like Samsung's concern for my privacy and security, but I'd prefer if they left that part up to me and let me use my SD card because, at the moment, it's useless.
Whilst my iphone quite happily connects to the internet via my router it cannot see my iMac hardwired to the same router. As a result since March 29th it has not been able to sync via wifi with itunes or sync to SOHO Notes and Daylite/Billings. All of whch worked brilliantly before.
In the iTunes WiFi sync pane on the phone Sync now is sometimes greyed out and other times it is vailable but when selecting sync now it states it is looking for my iMac and then it times out. From the Mac trying to re-pair SOHO notes and Daylite Touch the iMac cannot see the iphone as available on the same network.

I'm not really and expert on flashing stuff on Android. I was pretty comfy not rooting my phone for more than a year. TBH, I didn't really need it, because I was not a power user, but I've recently installed a root app called King User (King Root, etc.). It made things easy for the very few apps I could not use without root permission. However, when I received the latest OTA (5.1.1. security update) I had to disable root authorization in order to install it. So I disabled it using the app's built in authorization setting.
The OTA update failed and gave me the error with the opened up android and the red exclamation mark. So I thought that the app messed something up. Disabling in house did nothing. Uninstalling it did nothing. So I decided to replace it with SuperSU using this guide: [URL] .... After SuperSU deleted KingUser and updated itself the phone remained stuck inside a bootloop. So I figured this replacement process messed up permissions.
My bootloader is locked and I have no custom recovery (because like I said, I just needed temporary root access for a couple of apps and wanted to avoid the hassle). When I enter Recovery mode in default fastboot it gives me the "No command" error (probably because of SuperSU permission).
Now I don't even know if the phone is rooted or not. USB debugging was not enabled last time the phone was on and now I think I'm stuck in this point where nothing works without something else. Doing a full recovery now would probably be asking for a lot, but right now, I would be happy if I could just do a factory reset or something...
I'm struggling trying to figure out how or if it is possible to change the application permissions on the Motorola VA76r. I use the GMail app, and each time I press refresh it asks me for permission, and gives instructions on how to change them however when I try to change them I'm unable to. The only options I have are to ask, or not allow access at all, the rest are greyed out.
After downloading a free app from blackberry app world, a message has appeared saying 'The application blOC2 is attempting to access phone information. I cannot use my phone at all, none of the buttons or cursor r moving, just this message on the screen at all times.
This is getting really frustrating. We have a user here with an iPhone 4 running 5.1.1. It's connected to our Exchange 2010 SP2 Server, and he also uses Outlook 2011 for Mac.Whenever he accepts a meeting on his iPhone, that meeting will become unaccepted in Outlook.Whenever he accepts a meeting in Outlook, it becomes unaccepted on the iPhone.It's a neverending cycle! Double-accepting on the iPhone doesn't help either.I've tried re-creating his profile in Outlook and on the iPhone, emptied the calendar cache, I've restored his iPhone numerous times, the list goes on, nothing seems to work.
Can i use the charger from my i Pad2 to charge an i phone 3GS and vice versa, the one from the i phone to charge the i Pad. I believe the I pad charger charges faster or at a higher rate. Just wondered if there was any chance of damaging either unit although I suspect they should be compatible.
