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++).

I have a client who deleted text messages from a Samsung Galaxy S9 phone. The service is with Verizon.  Does anyone know if Verizon retains Texts after they have been deleted and if so how long?

I'm confused about archiving. When I swipe to delete an episode I see it gets archived (I believe).

Seems to me I don't have any need for archiving. What's the thinking behind this feature?

Is there any merit to my archiving episodes? Where do they even go?

And, is there any way to disable it?

Thanks!

After Migrating Exch2016 from SBS2011 (Exch2010) I have some issues.
1. Outlook 2016 continually asks for PW and is disconnected
2. mobile email on Android will not connect to server.

Prior to Migrating some mailboxes and setting up internet facing on Exch2016 all seemed to be working OK,
Outlook 2013 connecting to non Exch2016 mailboxes is OK (have not tried connecting to Exch2016 mailboxes)
OWA works on Edge on Exch2016 for the 2016 mailboxes

I have removed internet facing settings from Exch2016 and returned them to Exch2010

Hi Experts,

I have a Sony BRAVIA 55 Model KDL-55W800C TV.
It runs Android TV.

Somehow it's locked itself in to a state for which I cannot watch broadcast TV.

I have rebooted Android TV numerous times.

I can get the "Watch TV" icon on the screen:

Watch TV icon
But when I click on the "Watch TV" icon, the "Google Play Movies and TV" screen opens up

Google Play Movies and TV screen
So I cannot see any way to watch TV.

Regards,
Leigh

For my Android Phone I need to be able to quickly turn on or turn off wifi calling.
The Problem:
When a call comes in and the phone is set to my home office to WiFi calling. The quality and sound of the call is better.
However if you need to record the call for business purposes it is difficult to switch the WiFi calling off for the recording app to work.
The apps I have require WiFi to be off in order to record both sides of the call.
Two way calling is not possible as I only hear my side of the call & not my clients.

Is it possible or am I dreaming as I know nothing of apps but learning Python lately. Can a single button (like an app on my phone screen)  be made that performs like a macro.
Which will allow me to touch one button instead of 4 switching screens each time to turn on or off wifi calling?

I have a Samsung Galaxy S8+ that does not charge properly.  I believe I have determined it to be a motherboard issue related to the PMIC.  I am looking for a company that is willing to replace this piece as I do not have the equipment nor the skill to do it.

Hi, I have an android tablet, it's old and can't be upgraded. I'm afraid maybe it's a goner. I was trying to get to Google Play store, and I keep seeing this.
Screenshot_2019-02-25-14-47-29.png and also Unfortunately Google Play Store has stopped.

I've gone to all apps, cleared the cache, deleted the data, and rebooted a few times, but still this keeps happening. This is on Android v 4.4.4. Kernel v 3.10.0.

I have been asked to look at an Android phone where the text messages were deleted and see if I can get them back. The phone has not been used since the messages were deleted.
I see there are tools for purchase but was wondering if anyone has any experience with any free tools? I have seen some older questions like this here on EE but they were either iPhone or too old.

Is there a way to stop the constant android nag to upgrade to a later version of OS, im using ver 6 and happy with it, i read somewhere that enabling developer mode would help in this respect, so far i just keep postponing the update, but will it eventually force the update?

I segregate my customer contacts in sub folders to contacts. One folder for each customer. It does cause problems. This Outook for Android isn't syncing properly. I added a new contact in a "Vendors" sub folder and for some reason it synced yet there are other contacts in other sub folders that don't sync. I haven't figure it out. Strange little program. Even then once it is in Outlook it need to sync to Android contacts which it doesn't seem to be doing either. Any ideas on what I might be missing? Anyone else find this Outlook for Android not to be all together there?

Which will allow me to touch one button instead of trying to listen to the client and going in and selecting all those choices. I have hung up on people trying to turn off wifi.

I have some users who have access to a shared calendar stored in public folders in Office 365. Is it possible for them to view this calendar using the Outlook mobile application (android\iOS)?

I have 2 main InTune app policies for IOS and Android.  

Each policy I have targeting all of my mobile users for all of my approved apps with a 60 minute inactivity timeout through access requirements through group membership.

Is it possible to setup another policy with just one of the apps (Excel for example), to grab a lower timeout like 10 minutes?  More or less create another group assignment targeting a set of users to target at 10 minutes for excel as a timeout?

My goal is to get a set of users to be an exception to the main timeout for one app (excel), but still get the main policy for all of the other apps.

Thanks experts!

I have an LG K7 cell phone. When I type a paragraph and proofread it, I may need to make a correction in the middle of the paragraph. So in this paragraph I'm going to correct the word make in the previous sentence.

I put the cursor at the end of the word make, and hit the delete key. No problem. I hit the delete key one more time and garbage appears. Often it is the last word I typed. In below paragraph is what I see after I hit the delete key twice.


I have an LG K7 cell phone. When I type a paragraph and proofread it, I may neecorrect a correction in the middle of the paragraph. So in this paragraph I'm going to correct the word make in the previous sentence.

It looks like the delete key did a lot more than delete the character 'k'.  I had:

    "need to make a correction"

and with one delete, I get

   "neecorrect a correction".

The 2nd delete caused a lot more than one char to be deleted, but the weird part is that it pasted in something that I had already typed.

How can I make this weird behavior stop?

Btw, the above is not an artificial example. It is what actually happened right now in asking this question.

If I carefully highlight the words I want to change, I think I have done better when I type in the correction. But I just want the typing to go easier.

We have an Andriod app which we build using Kendo UI.

Now we are a fresh or a newer version of the same app using xamarin and donet core.

While uploading the Alpha version of the newer application we are getting an error (shown in the screenshot).

Now we are sure from where to get the older certificate for Signing the newer application so that it becomes an update of the original application.

Is there any place where we can find it or download it and consume it for the newer application?

The customer just bought a new Samsung tablet at Office Depot that is running KitKat.  They have an app that needs a newer version of the OS.  They went to Settings > Software update and tried to get a newer version, but it said they had the latest.

In brief online queries, I am not finding an easy way to install a higher version for them, as though it's not allowed.  On a Windows 7 PC we can (obviously) upgrade to Windows 10 in most cases.  Likewise, can we upgrade a new Samsung tablet to Lollipop or Marshmallow or Nougat?  If so, exactly how would I do this for my customer?  TIA

We have a kiosk running Android with a keyboard and mouse. Trying to reinstall the OS but there is no SDcard slot just USB but it wont boot off any usb drives (tried linux and android installers). Don't know they shortcut key to get it to boot off usb. Its not a phone so there is no 'power and volume down' combos. (See pics).
 It boots and displays the kitkat 4.4.2 logo and version then goes black...then screen freezes on black. There are no model numbers listed anywhere on the board.

Am having isuuses with several apps not being able to retrieve data, and frequent messages about play services stopping...so the only advice so far seems to do a factory reset...

But can someone please advise on the following before i do this and end up wiping stuff i need

1- I want to stay with the installed older version of android (5) , how do i ensure it doesn't get updated to a later version?

2- With apps like chrome, will bookmarks and saved login passwords be transferred when i log in, or is there a way to back these up?

3- Does play automatically allow reinstall of purchased apps, or do you need anything else to reinstall paid for apps?

Any reliable apps for doing this, would prefer a backup / manual way to copy unique stuff incase apps dont work so well..

When on AC power how can I make my Current Screen my Lock Screen?  

So that, let's say I'm using Itunes.  

Set the device aside.  Have a 5 minute time out.  Once the 5 minutes passes, rather than going blank / dark, it just stays at Itunes.

Then, when I try to interact with the device, it asks for the password, and returns me to Itunes, or wherever else I was before.

Any such Android app / option?

Thanks!

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

            My fiancee wishes to back up her pictures stored on an iPhone 5s to a new Alcatel idealEXTRA Android Version 8.1.0 which brings me to this upcoming question of interest.  Is it possible to hook up a small USB storage device about the size of a flash drive to the iPhone 5s, back up the pictures to it, disconnect it, plug it into the Alcatel idealEXTRA and transfer or copy the pics to it?  If there is such an external storage device for backing up and transferring pictures between phones, could someone provide an online purchase link?

             Thank you

             George
