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.

My Nexus 6 often slows to a crawl.  Is there anything similar to the "Performance" tab in the Task Manager for Windows that shows which resource (CPU, Memory, Disk, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth PAN, or GPU) is getting maxed out at any given moment?

any good android or iphone with 256 gb internal memory and good ram around 350$ budget in usa market? looking for unlocked phone without any contract obligations

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 …

Hi,

I am working on an iOS application (in nativescript) that needs to get and post some data to an API in the background each 5 minutes. Now it seems that iOS is closing my application so I took a look at the long running tasks section of https://docs.nativescript.org/core-concepts/ios-runtime/how-to/BackgroundExecution but I fail to see how I should configure an interval now.

Also while it works correctly on the simulator (not thinking about the interval) with the debug fetch command, I can't get it to work correctly on a real device.

I have a user that is set up on an Exchange 2013 and have been using Outlook 2016 for a couple of years.
Many people have email on their phone. I decided to set this user up to receive email on his phone.
I set up email on multiple phones without an issue. This one account is unable to get email on his phone.
I know I’m using the correct id and password. The server is the same for all other users and they can all connect.
Each time we get an error that the server does not connect.
We have attempted to set email on not just one phone but three different phones (Two Iphones and one Samsung). The phones have been on the corporate Wi-Fi and off using their own data plan.

We have confirmed that Active Sync is enabled. We have copied his AD account and then attempted to set up email on a phone with this copied account. It also failed. I then removed all Member of Entries under his AD Profile and it still failed.

Is it possible to share iTunes Library between PC & Android phone?

A brief search yielded shows information about using Android but I don't see any literature on using Android phones other than Apple Music subscriptions.

Is this a recent change or has it always taken an Apple mobile device to play your library from a mobile device?

I am creating an Android application that allows users to add notes, organize them into categories, and set reminders for the notes in the form of push notifications.

I am able to schedule reminder notifications when the phone is on. However, if you turn the phone off and then turn it on later, or restart it, then set multiple notifications: one that has a scheduled time after the phone has been rebooted or turned on again and one that is scheduled to go off at a time after the phone has been rebooted or turned off, then both notifications go off immediately after the phone turns on or is rebooted.

The expected behavior is that the notification that is scheduled at a time after the phone has rebooted fires at the scheduled time instead of right away.

Please see RebootReceiver.java and NotificationScheduler.java below and let me know if you need additional files from my project or information.

I need an Android App that will suppress any ringing on my phone, allow the playing of a Voice message advising the caller to unblock their number (Ie: Enable Caller ID) and call again.

Ideally, there would be no ring on my phone by calls without caller ID enabled and they would automatically get rejected and given the opportunity to leave a voice mail with a return number.

This would take care of 95% of the spam/scam calls & SMS's that I receive.

I do engage in the occasional scam baiting, so I'd like to have the option of letting those calls through occasionally when I'm in the mood, but for the most part, I want all private numbers blocked.

Anyone know of such an App?

Hi everyone. I have an Android 7 device. It's not rooted. I need a file manager/utility that allows me to view the files & folders of the root directory; specifically the System and Data partitions. I don't need 'Write' permissions, just Read-Only. I want to copy some files. In other words, I don't want to root the device. I just need read-only access. I would prefer a file manager type app but I'm open to other methods.

I have tried Solid Explorer. It shows the System Partition but not the Data partition. Thanks.

Hello experts, I've got a ZTE model Z933. A while back, my wi-fi stopped working on it for some unknown reason. I took it to my local Telus dealer and they couldn't figure it out - they said I would have to reinstall the OS. That seemed painful as I'd lose all my stuff on my phone (music, contacts, pictures, apps) and have to put it all back on after. Anyway, I don't use wi-fi often on my phone, but I think I will soon have a need to so I'd like to get it resolved (in the easiest way possible!).
    Here's how it's behaving now - when I go to my "Settings", and click the slider button for "Wifi" over to the ON position, it goes to ON, but it doesn't turn blue and activate like it used to. If I just click on "Wifi" itself to go into that screen, it says "To see available networks, turn wifi on" (whereas before it would always show any networks it detected). From that screen, if I click the slider button over from OFF to ON, it flashes blue VERY briefly, goes to ON... but is not blue.
   Can anyone offer any advice please? I have android version 4.3.

Thanks!
    Shawn

Trying to use a windows 10 PC as speaker phone for Android Galaxy S7 cell phone.

I want to connect my cell phone to my PC and then use the microphone and speakers in the PC as a "speaker phone".  I thought it should be simple!

According to numerous utube videos, attaching a cell phone to a PC via bluetooth and then turning on "speaker phone" on the PC bluetooth settings is easy.  

However, after I make the bluetooth connection, I see none of the bluetooth options on the PC for doing this.  Unlike the interface shown on the videos (where speaker phone is an option), I only get the windows standard services page with options for 1) stdRouterservice , 2) SMS/MMS  and 3) Unknown Service.  

Am I missing something?  The bluetooth in the computer is older (2+) but I thought that only affected speed - not functionality?  Is there some software or setting or either side that I might be missing?  Do I need to get a newer bluetooth adapter for the PC?  I'm running Windows 10 Pro and Android version 7.0

Update:  Since writing the above, I have tried using a desktop PC and purchased the ASUS USB-BT400 Bluetooth adapter (Bluetooth level 4) for it.  I now have several more options available to me (e.g. playing the music on my cell phone to my PC, using my PC keyboard / mouse to control the cell phone, file transfer - but still no speakerphone option.  I have found this question posted on  a few other sites (including Microsoft support) - but no answers.  A few people said it …

OnePlus 5 Android cell phone does not sync with my 2016 Prius 2. The bluetooth (phone and audio) connection works, but it is hard to dial out from the car because no contacts are transferred. There are over 500 contacts in the phone's contact app, and when I try to manually update to the car, the process crashes with an error message (generic, not meaningful) at about record 100.

Anyone have any ideas?
