Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Android's user interface is based on direct manipulation, using touch gestures that loosely correspond to real-world actions, such as swiping, tapping and pinching, to manipulate on-screen objects, along with a virtual keyboard for text input. In addition to touchscreen devices, variants of Android are also used on notebooks, game consoles, digital cameras, televisions, automobiles and other electronics. Applications are usually developed in Java programming language using the Android software development kit (SDK), but other development environments are also available, including Delphi, Ruby and Visual Studio (using C++).

Hi Team !

I just wanted to ask if there is a way to back up SMS ,call logs and contacts from your android smart phone in increments (like dropbox) ?

Is there a way to retrieve SMS , call logs and  contacts if ever you lose the phone  ?

Is there a way to trace the device if it is offline  ? If not what would be the best options as far a tracking the  device and remotely wiping off the data ?

New Samsung phone ,and I don't want to go through it again......

Hi Experts

Could you point a way to automatically transfer a telephone contact list from a smartphone to another ?

The last time I shop a new smartphone someone transfered it by via bluetooth, I guess.

The new smartphone is using Android 8.

Thanks in advance!

Hi all :)

Have a ZTE V72M Tablet that came with my ATT Digital Life security system for touchscreen controls. I dont use the system anymore, but would like to install CWM or TWRP to flash a custom ROM, but there is no access to any android system settings to enable USB debugging etc. Even if there was a way to get rid of the ATT UI, and just have a stock Android, would be great.

And go. TIA!!

I am building a android app using Android Studio.

I need to create a custom alert dialog, with a TextView and a Spinner, to prompt a user to edit values saved in a list.  I am currently using a default alert dialog to edit the one variable in the list (quantity of the item selected), but I must now be able to edit both variables (quantity and tax amount). The quantity will be a simple int, and the tax amount is a predefined variable list found in each users personal database.

What is the best way to create and implement a custom alert dialog for users to edit their lists?

-I am trying to get current Location on  web app loaded on xamarin. Forms  3.0+ WebView,i cant get it working
and i have tried several ways for doing it based on the suggestions provided below

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/44629197/show-prompt-to-know-the-location 

 Location Issue on WebView Xamarin Forms  3.1

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/42304287/xamarin-forms-webview-geolocation-issue

*-Initially i used to get below message on logs after locaction Prompt popup
" Caught security exception while registering for location updates from the system. The application does not have sufficient geolocation permissions.
11-23 14:58:34.827 E/cr_LocationProvider(26982): newErrorAvailable application does not have sufficient geolocation permissions."*
and i solved by requesting location permission on popup prompt.

-I even went ahead and requested permission whenever there was location prompt.

-I also tried to access location before opening the WebView itself

Android phone continues to ask for password to setup account.

I just changed our cell phone users to use Outlook app, instead of default mail app on Android.

I started by going into Accounts and deleting the setup for the email app.

I then downloaded Outlook app and setup their accounts in there.

All the Android phones are randomly asking to "setup account", in the old mail app. It contains the server info and is asking for the password.  EVERY android phone is doing this.  Some users had more than one email account setup under the default email app.  Some users, their corporate account was the only email setup.  

FYI - we would sync email, contacts, calendar and tasks.
I have checked calendar and contacts settings for any reference, with no luck.

There are references under the default email app for notifications that still points to their corporate email, even though I removed it.

One user, we deleted their other email account in default mail and set it back up, still have the issue. (they no longer have a reference to the old account under notifications)

I am running out of ideas....

Hi Android Experts,

I'm after an app/program that will allow me to organize all the icons on my Samsung Galaxy S9+ 256GB 4GX phone using my computer.

I recall being able to do this with my iPhones because iTunes displayed the phone configuration on screen and I could drag and drop apps and icons around on my computer screen while my phone was connected, and then the iPhone would update itself with the changes I'd made. I found this highly helpful and an easy way to organize my icons.

I have a LOT of icons and apps installed on my Android phone and organizing them the way I like in a native way on the phone I find to be a pain, so I'd like something that will allow me to do it the way iTunes let me do it with my iPhones.

Ie: Display my Phone screen configuration on my Windows 10 computer screen and allow me to organize my icons using my computer and then have my Android Phone update itself to the configurations that I'd selected on my computer screen. I'm happy to pay for a program to allow me to do this, so it doesn't have to be free.

I've looked through Google Play Store and see a lot of App Organizers, but they all seem to be just apps that are only installed on the Android phone, rather than allow me to connect the phone to the computer and do my organizing there.

Ie: Connect my phone to the computer so I can use my computer to update the icon positions on my phone instead.

Either this isn't available, or perhaps I'm using the wrong search terms on …

I would like to know the SUREST method to backup all my contacts on my phone to my PC . I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 4. I have the Google back up checked however the last time I formatted my phone I lost quite a few contacts for some reason. Luckily I was able to find the missing ones from Google Text messages app and DRUPE{ it's a third party app which cost me $12.00 ?} it had saved my contacts. I am a bit paranoid. I want to reformat my phone again but I do not want to risk losing any contacts information. The more back up the better. So if some one can give a couple of options to back up hopefully everything on my phone specifically the CONTACTS that would be great.

Thank you.

Learn about longtime user Rowby Goren and his great contributions to the site. We explore his method for posing questions that are likely to yield a solution, and take a look at how his career transformed from a Hollywood writer to a website entrepreneur.

A very strange thing happened and wanted EE advice.  We have android phones and a iphone phones.   We are setting up some computers and its wifi router in an office.  In order to detect the best signal possible, we used an apps that would detect a wifis' router signal connection and see speed or fluctuation, etc. so we can discover the perfect spot for all devices.

For some reason the android phone had better reach to a wifi router and the iphone super less.  For example, the apps would display 121 mbps and the android phone and in the iphone would detect 23 or 50 mbps - placing both phones next to each other, inches away the wifi.  

Please advice on possible cause.

Thank you in advance.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           For troubleshooting purposes surrounding problems I am having with the setup of a Lumiman wireless light bulb, I will be needing to purchase an Android 4.1 or higher.  Seeing that I will rarely be using it, I would like for it to be something cheap and inexpensive, but, fully working.   The Android 4.1 or higher will need to support the PlusMinus app the Alexa app.  

            Thank you

All posts are how "control the desktop app from phone" :(

But a lot of people need control android device (for example connected to hifi) from other android device or windows (PC).

How do it?

https://www.spotify.com/pl/connect/

Spotify has fantastic feature "Spotify Connect" that is super easy set-up. You'll need a phone, laptop or tablet with the with Spotify app. Add another device that supports Spotify or has the app (like a speaker or laptop). Connect both devices to the same Wi-Fi network, and log in to Spotify. Then you will be control all device from all other devices.

Is it possible control android tidal app from other device with android system without root on this? How?

Hi Experts,

I recently consolidated a number of contacts that were duplicated in my contacts list on my Android S9+ mobile phone.

Now I've noticed that a lot of the consolidated contacts have the wrong avatar of the persons face, in many cases, the avatar on the contact is of a totally different person than who the contact in my phone really is.

Can anyone explain the best way to fix this so that the pictures on the contacts are correct? Please include step by step instructions if possible as I'm relatively new to Android phones, being an Iphone user for many years.

Many thanks for any help.

Regards, Andrew
