Cell Phones

A cellular phone (also known as a mobile phone, cell phone, hand phone, or simply a phone) is a telephone that can make and receive telephone calls over a radio link while moving around a wide geographic area by connecting to a cellular network provided by a mobile phone operator, allowing access to the public telephone network. Mobile phones that offer services such as text messaging, email, Internet access, business applications, gaming, photography and more general computing capabilities are referred to as smartphones.

Hi,

I am trying to build a hybrid app.

When launching the Sybase Mobile Workflows - is there a way to force start a default workflow rather than displaying the list of all the workflows for the user to select?

See attached screenshot:

I signed up for a Samsung Galaxy III phone(Droid??Android??) with a 2-year Sprint plan, with "estimated" monthly charges of $79.99.

Can anyone tell me if this is a good plan, good phone? It seems to be in line with the charges other people pay per month. The phone is supposedly worth over $600 without a contract.

Is Sprint a good plan/have good service? Please tell me all you know. There is a 14 day return clause on the sales receipt, and I believe you have 3 days to legally get out of any contract. Please tell me anything you feel I need to know.

Thanks in advance,

sheana

Hello. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy SIIImini with Kies installed in my PC (WXP SP3). I'm not using Kies Air Message. I see Kies PDLR running on background in my PC. I've unchecked it from startup software with MSCONFIG but each time I use Kies the Kies PDLR is included again on startup software.
It is necessary that Kies PDLR run on background in my PC?
If the answer is "not", How can I disable this background item?
Thanks

We are using Exchange 2003 (although are due to upgrade to a new version later this year).  We have a lot of users who access our Exchange server through their personal mobile phones and a couple of users have noted that they are using a massive amount of the personal data plans.

Is there any way I can monitor how much data each user is using per month so I can establish if it is their exchange use that is using up all their data, or whether it is other usage.

We can then look at employees who may need to get business mobiles due to their high use, or work with them to reduce their non Wi-fi usage.

I'm looking for a local retail store (in or around the San Francisco/Oakland, CA Bay Area) that sells the iPhone Life Proof belt clips for the iPhone 4s model and for the iPhone 5 model.

I'd like to be able to see how well these belt clips work before actually buying one.

So far I have only been able to find them online.

I don't want to have to go through the hassle of returning these belt clips to an online seller if I need to.

I currently have 15 old AT&T Blackberry phones on our corporate plan and want to purchase 15 new "CHEAP" unlocked at&t Android/etc smartphones.

AT&T is offering their $99 iPhone, but that requires signing another 2-year contract on 15 phones I may-or-may not need in the future.

I want to stay with AT&T and purchase at&t Android/etc smartphones OUTRIGHT without extending the contracts.

What $150 or less phone allows me to check "Outlook Email" and works with the AT&T network ?

I do NOT want more Blackberrys.

Please provide a solution to restore the Android for a device from an *.img from SD card. Basically the app should be able

- to read the image from the SD card
- to restore the backup on the ROM /NAND

Thank you

Please provide a solution to backup the full content of ROM / NAND from an Android device to a single image file (*.img) on the SD card. The existing solution which I know (ROM Manager) requires CWM and my device is not in the list of compatible devices, so the alternative solution should work with a generic Android device.

Also will be nice to have that app / solution being able to allow the device to boot from SD card, select the image and do the recovery.

Thank you.

Hi,

My boss is travling to Taiwan for a meeting.  He has a verizon phone, I checked Verizon's site, I know he can use Verizon phone in Taiwan.

I basically have two questions:

I am getting different answers when I contacted Verizon, one said he has to dial country code, one said just dial as usual.  Such as 1+212+123+4567
for both calling and receiving

Any EEs have this experience?  thx

I have a Sony Experia Mini Pro, which is android based. It has an internal storage of about 420 mb and the external storage is 32 GB. I am continuously getting the message that "Phone Storage Space is Getting Low" because my internal storage is almost exhausted. I did manage to free a few MBs by shifting some applications to the SD card. But I am unable to move most of the default applications like officsuite, facebook, wisepilot for xperia, etc to SD Card. And, these applications which can't be moved to SD card keep receiving updates and always exhaust my internal memory. I am even prevented from downloading new applications. Can experts here kindly guide me with a solution to this problem.

I am fixing a customer of mines iphone 4 gsm. Her speakers and headphone jack are messed up in some way. I fix about 10 of these phones a week but ive never seen this specific problem before. Ill go into the music app and i dont have the "play, previous or next" options at the bottom. Sound usually works when i plug in the headphones but sometimes i have to unplug it and then plug it back it. Sound goes in and out of the speakers though. When i lock the screen it will give me the lock sound but when i try to play videos it gives me nothing and with music and games and everything else i get no sound either. Any help here will be greatly appreciated!
