I gladly installed the 2.1 update on my girlfriends mobile and everything worked fine. However, under "Settings - Language&Keyboard" there is NO menu item for Android keyboard.... As it appears, she uses the standard T3 enty mode and simple does not like the recommended words. There is no way to set it back now and I am thinking about playing it back to 1.6 despite the advantages coming with it.
I have a rooted AT&T S6 and was using Tasker normally, but I decided to clean up/freeze some more system apps, and then I ran into a problem. For some reason, accessibility settings for Tasker become disabled and when I tried to re-enable them, I was prompted with this error message: "Error: "Turn on universal switch. Universal switch does not support the current system language. The text-to-speech language will be set to null, but this might cause unexpected behavior". After hitting "Ok", it would say settings has crashed.
I fixed this by unfreezing Samsung text-to-speech engine. Afterwards, the message about Universal Switch never came up again. This is just an FYI if cannot enable any accessibility settings due to settings has crashed.
The sony ericsson xperia mini st15i was really a pocket sized monster but pls sony put up an option to turn off the brightness auto adjusting.. everything was good and i can even say perfect just that that brightness sensor ****** me off because at places with low lighting, the screen flickers because of the brightness auto adjust...
I got the ICS update on my XMP. But there is one problem which I am facing. In the Settings, if I tap on "Language & input" settings, the phone hangs and nothing appears. And then when I slide out the physical QWERTY keypad, the "Language & input" settings appear in the landscape mode and then again when I slide in the keypad, the screen goes blank and none of the keys on the phone work.
When at work I always enable the passcode so that my co workers don't start playing my games and reading text messages. Lately they have been getting mad at me for putting the passcode on there and they know that after 5 wrong guesses it locks you out of your phone for 5 minutes. Is there any way to edit the files that control the passcode and remove the setting that locks the phone after 5 wrong guesses? I just don't wanna wait 5 minutes to use my phone after they do it on purpose.
Is there any way/app to adjust the Auto Brightness on the Droid X? The brightness that the phone picks is way too bright, so I normally turn it down/off. But when I am in direct sunlight I can not see the screen well enough to find the brightness settings to adjust them so I can use the phone.
I currently use the Android Power Control Widget to change my Brightness settings. It does a good job for me, except in the above mentioned issue. I have looked in the Android Market Place, but most applications just talk about predefined brightness settings. I found one called Custom Auto Brightness, but it does not seem to work on the Droid X.
My iphone 5s tells me that my settings need to be changed in order to watch video playback if I'm not on Wifi. I go into settings and everything looks right but it still will not allow me to watch video playback through cellular connection.Â What do i need to do?
Somehow i'm not able to access my settings anymore. It gives the following error code (translated from dutch) 'The application 'Settings' (proces com.android.settings) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again'.I haven't downloaded any new apps recently, no new SIM or SD. I've already tried removing battery, SIM card etc. and putting them back in.
i m having the xperia x10mini which i got unlock from my brother and i would like to setup the gprs for internet on it. in the phone settings there is a tap for phone settings but it is not working for me. and still i have the 1.6 android os i tried to download it but it did not update also..
i am using GPRS services for now almost an year and half. i was having windows mobile till 16th Sept'11 on which i was using gprs very happily but on 17th Sept'11, i did purchase Xperia mini from G. V. Puntambekar(Pune based dealer). The phone is now installed OS as Andriod 2.3. Ever since i have purchased the phone i am not able to use GPRS services on it. I did speak to Airtel (my current service provider) and whatever settings they have given but not able to save them on my phone bcoz it asks for MCC and then MNC code. hence after talking to Airtel somehow i got these code. but depite of entering them into the settings along with other settings, i am still not able to use gprs. i was told that once you save the gprs manual settings it creates a profile on phone but it is not saving any profile on my phone. Sony dealer is sayingthat it is a service provider problem and Service provider is saying that we have given you all the settings so it is a phone manufacturer's problem. I am getting penalised in these two contradictory statements. Without GPRS the phone is like any ordinary phone. I feel like cheated even after paying Rs.13000/- and buying Sony's product. Feels like lesson learnt that never buy SONY product again..
i have successfully upgraded to 2.1.Still facing some problems...My Notification tone always beeps with a vibrating mode as well...When i tried to disable the vibration mode, To my surprise i could not find SMS settings option in the SettingsSonyericsson?? menu....i have settings for camera, timescape only..So shud i repair my upgrade?
i was just wondering if i can change the settings for my camera such as, the photo's size or can it zoom while taking a picture? i'm quite confuse on how to use the camera. i don't know where is the settings for camera.
I've been having problems with my phone recently, it doesn't recieve some text messages or show my missed calls. A friend suggested that it may just need updating, which made sense because I'd been getting update notifications, just hadn't got round to hooking my ohone up to my laptop. So I did just that and installed the 'companion' but when I try to update, it's asking me to insert a memory card. I've never taken it out! Not once. So i've turned the phone off and on again, as you do.
I've been using my X10 Mini for about 3 months now. This is my first Android/smartphone device.I've been shocked so many times at the unbelievable cost of internet usage (or related) costs on the device. I'm currently in Italy (for now) and the costs here are even worse than at home. Totally, totally shocking.What I'd like to do is identify and understand, then control all the settings related to this. I hope this helps out others in the future.
1 Settings, Wireless & Network, Mobile Network, DATA ROAMING, DATA TRAFFIC . So roaming for outside your usual network, traffic is WHAT? Allow internet in general?
2. Settings, Accounts & Sync, BACKGROUND DATA, this is what? Allow apps to use internet? E.g. for weather apps etc.?
3. Anything related to GPS (various settings in location services and wireless) should be hunted down and switched off.
I've used phones since I was about 12. I've been a tech geek for as long as I know, very early adopter of 3G blah blah but I'm surprised by the complexity of the internet options on these android devices and shocked by the million ways they steal your credit.
After speaking to O2 for a few days now to send me the Internet and MMS Settings which failed to download each and every time, they have now sent me

Them. ^ I'm now confused as to where I enter them. I have the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro.
I just updated my Xperia Mini Pro, but after the update, a) new text messages appear at the bottom of the list of texts (so annoying!) and b) the newest text message does not appear on the list when I reply to it.Is this a bug? I really don't think it's a feature.
Just wanted to share my experience. I did the update on November 8. I didn't bother to do the backup. The only real important is the contacts and Google have them already. I used the Update Service tool and it worked like a charm. After restarting the phone I had to go through the setup wizard, which by the way is much improved. I now realized that I had lost all my downloaded applications. I downloaded them again from market. Most of them had all the old data, nice. Some games lost all history, no big deal really. My contacts, mail and calendar was downloaded from Google.
I realy like the fact that it is possible to send contacts by SMS. The images from facebook also works very well.
The one thing that I am still not used to is the unlooking. The habbit of pressing the menu button twice is had to kick. I think the new way with the slider is somewhat safer.Now I am waiting 2.2 with tethering. I hope this will be available for X10 mini some time in the future.
