Samsung :: Intensity - How To Put Wallpaper Image From Pc To Phone
Mar 30, 2010
I got a samsung intensity and I was wondering how to transfer a image(to be a wallpaper) from the pc to the phone? I tried to use the data cable it came with (the usb cord), and also the samsung pc studio. But I guess I can't figure it out. Also, can I set seperate ringstones for my contacts? I tried, but they are still all the same.
This phone is so slippery! I can't seem to use it without throwing it on the floor, which I have done about a dozen times now. My other phone was a Motorola with a soft grip rubber built into the case, very easy to hold on to.
What is a solution here? Any recommendations on how to gold on to it? I was thinking of some type of case, maybe a neoprene rubber type that would allow easy access to the buttons/functions, but thought I would ask some folks who may have already experienced this problem.
Just got new Intensity. After activating and playing around with it for awhile, I updated the software through the "Phone Info" menu. This appears to have worked, everything on the phone still works fine, however there is now an "AA" on the middle left side of the home screen. It even rotates to middle left with the screen when you slide out the keyboard. When bringing up Menu's it disappears, but is always back on the home screen when you return. Have tried changing wallpapers, verified that no banners were turned on. Have tried power cycling the phone several times, no luck getting rid of it.
I have been enjoying the various threads related to ios 4 wallpaper and I have a simple question to ask: how does one change the wallpaper to one of these custom images? I have looked at DiskAid and iPhone Explorer so far, and neither seems to point towards the wallpaper folder.
Has anyone figured out how to get stereo sound out of the 2.5 mm jack on a Samsung Intensity? I have obtained several different "stereo" adapters for 3.5 mm headphones, and I still get either mono sound or sound out of only one channel.
I changed my wallpaper on my Blackberry 8520 OS 5 a week ago, and I did zoomed-in before I settled it as my wallpaper. Now, my wallpaper is still there, but the picture that is currently my wallpaper is gone.. I have done a lot of ways to try to find it, but it is really gone..
I formatted, then put a couple of songs on it to test it out. The phone recognized and played them, so then I added the rest of my music to the memory card. There's about 14 gb on the card now, so it's almost full. The phone also accurately tells me that there's about 14gb of the memory card that's occupied. BUT The music player now only puts a small portion of all those songs into its playlist, I would say it only plays about 2 gb out of the total 14 gb. I also cannot choose which songs get put on the playlist. I am on Telus, NOT Verizon, by the way. Why can't I access ALL my music in the music player? Is there a maximum to the number of songs in the mp3 playlist that I wasn't aware of? Did I buy the wrong memory card?
Have tried holding various keys in an attempt to access a BIOS screen or some such thing to no avail (why aren't cell phones more like computers?). As for how my phone got to this state...
-I wanted to add custom ring tones to my recently purchased Samsung Intensity but found that texting them to myself via vzwpix.com led to a significant decrease in quality and the costs would quickly add up as I attempted to fix the issue by editing the sound files in Audacity and texting newer versions to my phone
-To get around using vzwpix.com, I found a method of putting the files directly on the phone by installing the phones drivers to my computer using Samsung PC Studio 3 and moving them directly to the phone using Qualcomm Product Support Tools. The method is copy+pasted below for reference
-After a while I got the ring tone to how I wanted it and went to delete the experimentation files on the phone. I had done this in the past through the phone's interface without issue (though an attempted file rename had caused a quick freeze which was solved by removing and replacing the battery), but this time it froze when attempting to delete the final file
-The phone would not respond to any keypad presses including the power button, so I chose to restart the phone by removing and putting back in the battery
-The phone will no longer pass the "Verizon Wireless" screen and reboots after hanging on that screen for ~7 seconds
Pasted below is the complete method I used to transfer the files for reference. Other smarter methods may exist, but given the issue I had with vzwpix.com, my lack of a mircoSD card, and my desire to avoid media messaging charges I elected to go with this method. Credit goes to ch from the Mobiledia forums for figuring this out and typing this up. It works beautifully aside from the issue I have had. I suggest that anyone who chooses to use it remove sound files from the phone only through QPST and not through the phone's interface.
Software required: 1.Samsung PC Studio 2. QPST (Or other software to allow you to browse the phone's file system)
1. Install Samsung PC Studio (Will only be used to install drivers for the intensity) 2. Change USB Port Map to "Modem" on your phone a. Go to Settings & Tools > Phone Info > and then press the # button. b. Enter 000000 for the lock code. c. Select option 2 "Port Map" d. Select option 4 "USB" e. Select option 4 "Modem" 3. Plug phone into usb port. 4. Go to device manager and install drivers for the unidentified devices a. The drivers will be located in C:Program Files SamsungSamsung PC Studio 3 5. Start QPST EFS Explorer 6. Browse to brewmodmr on the phone 7. Delete MrInfo.db 8. Drag and drop your mp3 ringtone files into this directory 9. Restart the phone. 10. A new MrInfo.db file will be created. Copy it to your desktop. 11. Edit the file with notepad. You should see an entry for each sound file in the directory, followed by |0|0 or something like that. For the first file change the second 0 to a 2. For the next file change that same zero to a 3, and so on. I guess the second zero just needs to be a 2, 3, or 4. 12. Copy MrInfo.db back to the phone in same directory. 13. Reboot the phone and your mp3 will show up under the "My Ringtones" menu.
I just got the Samsung Intensity for Verizon. Everything is great except for one critical thing. I download audibooks from my local library which come as DRM protected WMA files. They play just fine BUT if I exit the music player (to make a call, or just put it away for a while) when I bring it up again, it does not remember its place and goes back to the beginning of the file. This is crippling when you have 72 minute "songs" since you can't be scanning to find your old place every time. With non-protected WMA's even of the same length,it remembers it's place just fine. Also, on my old Samsung Juke it was not a problem. I asked Verizon tech support and they are forwarding my issue to Samsung. I am hoping they will come out with a fix, but they easily could just ignore a complaint from one lone user. Is this a problem that other people have seen? What are the chances that Samsung will actually produce a fix? Is there a workaround to get it to remember its place in a protected WMA?
how do i get my images on my wallpaper to have the central part of the image in the centre of th home screen part of the wallpaper? I hope this makes sense. I mean so I dont have to scroll along to see it, I would just like it to fit my home screen!
Running v188.8.131.52 on my Bold 9900 and images (sized to 640x480 in PS) are not correctly displayed on the screen. I seem to be losing about 10-15% of the right hand side and rather less on the bottom of the image. Am I correct in assuming that the wallpaper should fill the entire screen to the above resolution?
So I just got the factory unlocked HTC One M8 from the website and so far I'm loving it. The only thing with me though is that I REALLY think the vibration intensity on this device is too high (or is it just me?).
I know that it's possible in Samsung B5722 to have a 3 screen wallpaper because there are default wallpapers that I can use to do this. Thing is, I've been trying to create my own 3 screen wallpaper but I can't set it up to have different images in 3 screens. Here are what I've done.1. I've tried placing images on screens. Example, scroll to 1st screen, set wallpaper. Move to 2nd screen, set wallpaper. FAILED.2. I've tried creating my own 3 screen wallpaper (just like the ones in the default wallpaper). 3 different images, all sized at 240x320. I used MSPaint to join the 3 images (making it 720x320). I've tried setting it but only the middle image is seen. Even if you scroll through the 1st and 3rd screen, there's only one part of the image that can be seen (the middle one)
i decided to go Cricket and got this Samsun U340. I downloaded one ringtone fine but now it keeps saying i already downloaded the others i tried to grab. I tried multi sites so it has to be the phone. It says i can replace it or cancel but only thing it shows/can do is hit cancel. I know this phone is not super great but until i get another i am stuck with it. I like to put a few decent tones and a couple wallpapers and would be happy.The wallpaper problem is it shows the image only. There is no option to save it in web browser or gmail email. I tried email with attachment and a hyperlink. I went in menu to see if i can save it but nothing. I used cell phones for about 5 years with non prepaid services. This is the first prepaid i used and wow it is sure limited. If anyone can help me and used this cell and got it to work would be great.
The Samsung Impact comes with some default wallpapers that cycle through as a slideshow when you lock your phone. Is there a way to delete these? I hate having little flowers and what not when I lock my phone. I tried Samsung Customer Service (e-mail is useless, they don't read the request) and when I called they said they'd have someone contact me back but of course no one ever did (this was over a month ago).
I was looking for Samsung Galaxy S wallpapers online and I found some that are 360x640. I tried to use these on the phone but it makes me crop the picture before I can set it as a wallpaper and I'm only ending up with 40 % of the original wallpaper. what size I need to create them in on photoshop?
I got my S2 a few days back, and am quite impressed with the scrolling background wallpaper. However, I don't understand how to make a wallpaper scrollable. I installed this app called Zedge that lets you download free wallpapers etc. When I choose the image to use as wallpaper, I'm taken to a screen with the following:
- A thumbnail of the image with a resizable orange rectangle. - 2 icons below that - one with 3 panes that looks like it's meant to select a scrolling wallpaper and the second one showing a single pane.
I choose the one on the left that appears to be for scrolling, then I suppose I have to select the area of the image I want. I want the entire image to be used as a wallpaper, so I select the whole thing. (I've also tried selecting only a sub section). I click save. It generates and sets the wallpaper and...it does not scroll. (I have all 7 home screens enabled).
I go back, choose the icon on the right, select a small area of the image and that gets set as a wallpaper. This also does not scroll. I don't want to go install a 3rd party app just to do this. I have tried with Zedge, as well as locally stored pictures from my Picasa albums. Also, how does one change the 3 default pictures in the 'wallpaper gallery'? I can't find them on the SD card.
I am using a Samsung T401G (Net10) but I guess this would apply to any Qwerty slider phone. My resolution is 176x220. No matter what I size the wallpaper at, it only works correctly in portrait mode, but when turned to landscape mode, it has gray bars at either side.
My wife has just gotten a Convoy 2 and would like to change the wallpaper on the inside screen.She wants me to take a pic from her camera and make that the inside screen wallpaper.nyone know what size they have to be Also I am going to assume it has to be a JPEG...correct me if I am wrong..
