Smartphones

A smartphone or smart phone is a mobile phone with an advanced mobile operating system that combines features of a personal computer operating system with other features useful for mobile or handheld use. They typically combine the features of a cell phone with those of other popular mobile devices, such as personal digital assistant (PDA), media player and GPS navigation unit. Most smartphones can access the Internet, have a touchscreen user interface, can run third-party apps, music players and are camera phones. Most Smartphones produced from 2012 onwards also have high-speed mobile broadband 4G LTE internet, motion sensors, and mobile payment mechanisms.

A user with a Sprint PCS iPhone X running ios version 11.1.1 (15B150) that has Google voice installed on it only slightly vibrates during incoming calls to either its phone number or to the google Voice number.

I have checked the obvious settings and everything seems to be set correctly.

The Do Not Disturb feature is turned off.

What needs to be done to change this so that the iPhone X will ring during incoming calls.

one of our corporate applications have recently issued a windows/android app for smartphones, to give the users an alternative to using their web app. the suppliers are a relatively small company. Some of the end user smartphone devices are currently not encrypted, but the suppliers say this is not a show stopper as security is 'contained' within the app itself. The login to the app is single factor authentication, username/password. how practical is it that security for an app would be 'contained' within itself, so if someone lost the smartphone with the app itself there would be no data specific to the app accessible on the devices storage. And perhaps more relevant what type of testing would you suggest to see what data specific to the app is stored and retrievable on the phone itself? or what types of security sensitive data do/could apps leave on the phones themselves and what could be retrieved if the device was lost/stolen?

Free Tool: Site Down Detector
LVL 11
Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

I am looking for an Android App to scan barcodes which will place the decoded barcode text in a web page text box as if the code had been entered by the keypad (The web page having currently being displayed).

Alternatively, the App could be configured to launch a web site request with a parameter being the barcode scanned. This is NOT for looking up products/reviews on line.

For example, if the app scans a barcode  CD1234, the app could be configured to execute the following command :

http://10.41.23.3/query?label=CD1234



Thanks,

Roger

I got my wife's old iPhone 6 when she upgraded. it worked perfectly. After I put my data on it, then upgraded the firmware, now my touch is not responsive, but only when it is in portrait mode, and only is about half of the apps (mostly native apps)

When I try to install profiles for my data and xfinity wifi, I cannot click install or back. Facebook won't let me post status updates, and  to be completely honest, it's driving me crazy. I've wiped it a few times, and I can't get past the initial setup if I try to set up the phone as a new one. Any suggestions?

My mom is recently blind and currently SIRI can only open a few many apps but once those apps are open, you need to be visually capable to navigate them.  

Ex:  You could ask SIRI to open Safari and do a search but then it only lists the search on the screen.  The touch/tap capability doesn't work after doing a voice search. And well touch/tap is very cumbersome in general -- even for me and I can see.    

Ex. 2: My mom likes Pandora and SIRI will open Pandora, but again once in, it will not close the app by voice nor will it allow you to change stations or do a search.

SO... my question is...  is there an app -- possibly similar to VYSOR for Android -- that will allow an Iphone to be remote controlled completely by a PC.  My aim is to connect my mom's Iphone to a PC and not only mirror the screen (she cannot send screenshots anyway -- you have to be able to see to do that), not only open Apples basic features (like mail, photos, calendar) but where you can also fully open and navigate ALL apps like Pandora, BARD Audiobooks, Youtube or Netflix (she may not be able to see shows but she listens to them) from a PC.

If there's anything currently available or new applications in the works, please let me know.  

Otherwise... we may have to bite the bullet and move to Android since it's phone and apps seem to be more ADA (american disabilities act) compliant.

I had this question after viewing many beeps instead of one quick beep.

1 notification per 1 minute. You can create a mp3 file for a customized notification tone which comprises of 6 or more short beeps in one minute.

How can I do this in android 7

I am currently setting up a training room where I want everything to be automated. I have door style windows on a slanted roof that currently needs to be opened manually. The problem is that the windows are very high, and it is not practical to try and open them manually.

They are side hung escape windows with wooden frames and dimensions 660x1180mm.

I want to convert the windows so they can open automatically, preferably using a remote or voice commands using my SmartThings hub or Amazon Alexa. Would this be possible?

Would you be able to guide me to the type of window opener/actuator that would best suit my window and what else I would need to get to be able to use my SmartThings hub or IFTTT event triggering.

Any solutions would be much appreciated.

Regards,
Robbie

It is also important to note that I am doing this project on my phone; therefore, solutions available for Android phones will be highly appreciated.

Please reply soon, because the due date for this project is close. Thank you. :)

I have a client whose company has a specific office 365 account for contacts only. The entire company adds contacts to it and it has ~7850 contacts in it. No one has problems syncing to this account on their phone for contacts except for one user. He complains that his sync is completed but his phone shows only 7650 contacts, missing about 200. His Outlook on his PC is showing 7850.

I have had him remove the account and re-add it. I removed the account from the mobile devices list in 365 admin and had him restart his phone to re-sync completely, it leads to the same number when done.  I also checked and he has full access to every contact and group.

When done syncing he says he does have the latest contacts added as well but is concerned about the number shown. He is using a Samsung Galaxy S7, while others using the same phone do not have the issue.

I changed the account on his phone to sync only contacts from this specific account, hoping that it would fully sync, but that did not fix it either.

At this point I can't tell if it is an issue regarding the number his phone is showing or if his account is actually not syncing all contacts.
