Xperia Ray :: Turning Off GSM Networks Without Turning Off FM Radio?
Jan 21, 2012
Is it possible to disable all the telephony functions of the Xperia Ray and still be able to listen to FM radio ? (to improve battery life)
"Plane mode" is unfortunately not an option as it doesn't allow listening to the radio... (whereas it allows you to connect yourself to a Wi-fi network or to receive GPS signals, for instance) Would be great if there was a widget "Enable/Disable GSM networks" or something like that, as there is for other functions... but I couldn't find such a thing.
I was very happy with my xperia mini pro till yesterday but I was disappointed today very badly when I am turning On my WIFI it just done and didn't search any networks and didn't show any icon that its On. What I can do now? It just simply not connecting.
I have my Tour set to auto turn on/off. It shuts off fine, but when it turns back on, the radio does not turn on. The bluetooth turns on, but not the radio. I have to manually turn the radio back on everyday and it's beginning to be a PITA. TIA.
I bought a blackberry curve 8520 recently but I cannot download applications such as whatsup on my phone since when i do the setup in the second step when i connect the device a message said :BlackBerry App World requires that your device radio is turned on to continue.how can I turn on the radio...where can I find it?
I have had a Curve 8330 in service with Virgin Mobile, for a couple of years. I have just recently switched my cellphone number to a new handset and new service provider. In preparing my Curve 8330 for a new owner (at some point), I opted to use the "Wipe Handset" function, to clean the handset of all my personal information, contacts, etc. During this process, I was advised that the "radio" would be turned off. I thought I was going to be able to manually turn it back on after performing this "wipe", so I wasn't concerned. This would seem (so far) to not work; at least - not the way I was expecting to be able to. Does anyone know how I could at least turn the handset's radio on? While this wouldn't do much good without a service contract attached to the handset, it will at least assure me that the unit is still in working order, and will work properly for a new owner.
I use my wifi 24/7 then one day the radio just turn off and will not turn back on. When i select wifi under manage connections; the red 'x' remains and 'turn all connections off' greyed out. If i try turning on the wifi radio from setup wifi network i get a message saying 'Unable to to turn wifi on'. This is frustrating as my carrier data service is extremely slow.
Just recently my Bold 9650 has been periodically losing the radio connection. I usually only notice it when I attempt to place a call and get the 'radio connection off' message. When I attempt to restore the connection (via Quicklaunch) nothing happens. I have to do a hard reset to get the connection back which is a pain in the a**. I noticed it this time right after I was connected to Desktop Manager. Any correlation?
Just last night the radio/towers on my phone turned off. I turn them back on or just make a call to restore the connection but they turn off in about 10 seconds.I found this post below: radio keeps turning itself off which describes a similar issue. There hadn't been any posts on it since last year so I didn't know if there was any updates on the issue or if it still signified that it was a hardware issue with the phone.
My phone was in a reboot loop. So I asked the Provider for support. Theceommended to Reinstall Software.So I did. After this the system kept on. As soon I aktivated Mobile Network Option. Device was in reboot loop again. it does not matter if I have SIM card in device or not.
This is my second Atrix. It is failing to turn on its' Bluetooth radio. I go to Settings > Wireless & Networks > Bluetooth (and Bluetooth Settings) and try to turn Bluetooth on. It indicates that it's turning on Bluetooth and then it fails, returning to the "Turn on bluetooth" message. I've rebooted, done a battery pull, tried to turn it on from Airplane mode...everything short of a factory reset (because I really really really don't want to set this thing up from scratch again!).
I got my Nexus 5 on the 2nd of this month. I'm on Android 4.4.4. Just today, I was out and about and I realized that, although I was going into settings and turning Wi-Fi off, it just kept turning it right back on! (I had been using the Wi-Fi at the mall, then later I went to a friend's house and connected to my friend's Wi-Fi, which did not work.) So, I turned on my data, only for it to turn off after I guess about 30 seconds. I turned it back on, went on WhatsApp, in the middle of replying to a text from my friend it goes off yet again! What the... So, I went into settings and turned data on, and Wi-Fi off. As I watched, the Wi-Fi switched itself back on, and, predictably, even though there were no wireless networks to connect to, my data turned off as well.
This is really inconvenient. What could be causing the problem? I don't think I've downloaded any apps recently, but they do sometimes update. It was working fine on Thursday, but I've had my data off since then. I also booted into Safe Mode, and the problem doesn't seem to persist.
I had a contract with Vodafone over 2 years ago and decided on the BlackBerry Storm 9500 handset . After 6 Months of receiving the phone it developed a fault, i have returned it for repairs on a number of occasions and the reoccurring problem has never been solved & fixed . After eighteen months the phone will still not turn on and when it does work it turns off within one hour of it working, i have been to the Vodafone shop in Torquay South Devon and they supplied me with a new battery to try but it still switches itself off . I ave talked to Vodafone and i was told a fault has been found on this particular model of handset. After 24 months of having this contract phone i have now upgraded to a BlackBerry Torch . I would like to return the 9500 handset to get a free full repair or a replacement as i now need to use both phones. This phone has also had problems with freezing and locking up
So like a month ago my phone crashed ( i dont know why) then when i tried restarting it didnt. however if i put it in charging then after 3-4 hours it started up.After this i avoided restarting because this lead me to wait 4-5 hours and sometimes even 6 hours. Yesterday it crashed and i pluged it in charging it didnt turn on the entire night ( i was playing cod and so was awake the whole night ) even PC companion and Update service didnt help.
I just bought my xperia ray today from phones for you and as ive had an android xperia x10 mini before i knew to do an update, so as soon as i got home i plugged it in to update and halfway through it disconnected from the computer but it was still charging, so i unplugged it but it wasnt doing anything so took the battery out and tried turning it on, the little light at the bottom comes on and it vibrates as though its turning on but there is no picture coming up at all, took it down to phones for you straight away and they said they hadnt heard anything like it happening before
yesterday i was sending a text to my mate and after sending the text i put the phone in my pocket. decided to look at the phone a few mins later and was frozen on the sending message screen so i decided to turn it off but nothing worked. so i took the battery out and after that everytime i turned it on it would light up and vibrate but thats all i changed sims and battery but nothing works

My Bluetooth turned off the other night and will not turn on at all for anything, even after a full wipe and install with Sony companion. It's happened to me before when pairing with a new device then once disconnecting the device the Bluetooth won't turn back on again. Some how in the past I was able to get it working again but not this time.
My Bluetooth keeps turning on by itself. Seconds after I turn it off. This has started to happen since today morning.
I deleted all the apps I've installed since yesterday. And I disabled smart connect app. It didn't solve the issue. I rebooted my phone many times. It didn't solve it. What can I do more? I have a xperia z3
Just a day back i connected my phone to my pc and got a notification from PC companion saying that a update is there for my phone.I accepted this and the update started[note: i had updated my phone to ICS 4.1.B.0.463 or something and then i got themsg to update to 4.1.B.0.578] the contents got downloaded then it started to update half way through it got stuck and then got a error saying " Update was not succesfull" so i tried some more times did everthing according to procedure but still same problem and now my phone not even starting
I noticed when Im in an app or pretty much in anything and I press either back or main screen toexit out of it, then I go into advanced task killer they are all still running? Is there a way to exit out of the appin the app settings to turn it off completely or will I always have to use advances task killer everytime
