Samsung Infuse (Android) Issues
Posted on 2011-09-11
I'm using my first Android device (Samsung Infuse phone) and am lost on a couple issues. I had initially set up the phone using an existing Gmail account then decided I wanted to use a different Gmail/Google account as the primary account on the phone. The only way I could see doing this was a Restore/Factory Reset. I did the restore and was able to set up the phone again pretty well with all my previous settings. However, I encountered a few problems almost immediately:
1) I could not find all the applications I had already installed with the initial setup (I ended up re-purchasing a couple along with all the freed apps);
2) I can not get the phone to pair with my Bluetooth earpiece (Jawbone Icon). In fact, the phone doesn't even "see" the device as it scans;
3) The Android Market is essentially "gone" from the phone; when I try to open the Market app, I get a blank screen with this message: "Market needs background data to be enabled".
I'm really lost and these issues have created a real headache so any help is greatly appreciated.
