Hi,

I use a Samsung Note 9 phone for conference calls.

These conference calls are recorded using a call recorder app on my phone.

I always get permission from those that are part of the conference calls so it is okay to record them.

We have tried different call recorders for Samsung phone but got mixed results.

Sometimes, the call recorder that we use currently only records my voice or other person's voice is very quiet when recording is played back.

It is expected that all people on the call should be recorded and heard when played back.

What would you recommend as best call recorder to use for the Samsung Note 9?

Thanks,
Robbie

The user has moved into a new apartment.  They brought their Panasonic wireless home phone system, with a base station and two satellite phones with them.  

They would like to just give everybody they know only their cell phone number.  They need an adapter that would transfer all the cell phone calls to their Panasonic system.  This way they have the convenience of the Panasonic stations, and don't have to carry around a cell phone all day.

What is a good unit that will do this?

Thanks

Hi Experts

Could you point what must to be checked/ configured to make Win 10 recognize again an Android smarttphone using USB?

I guess since the last Win 10 actualization it stopped recognize the smartphone. Amazingly a popup  rapidilly  appear/ disappear and the caracteristic sound occurs, but after that the celular drive doesn't appear at Win Explorer.

The celular's charge is occuring normaly.

Thanks in advance.

I have an earphone with a lightening port, I can use it with my iPhone.
However, I want to use it also on my other devices that only have a 3.5mm port.
Is there any adapter in the market for such purpose?

I would like to monitor my son's use of his Android phone. I do not wish to block anything. I would however like to receive reports of websites that he has visited, youtube videos that he has watched and other things that I haven't thought of. I would like to be able to install this on his phone without him being aware. Also, presumably it must also be possible to intercept traffic through our router and make some kind of record of that traffic. What is available? Obviously that doesn't help when he is not using the router, so I am interested in both approaches.
Thank you

I'm trying to share a contact folder with users within my organization so that we can see them on our smartphones as well.  I've tried to following articles but still not working.  

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/10157/sharing-calendar-and-contacts-in-office-365

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Share-a-contacts-folder-with-others-CE5A40D1-BC9F-4F5D-A2AA-5EC388573821 

I created a contact folder and I set the up the permission for myself as Editor and then sent a share contacts email.  When I try to open the contact folder, it tells me “the folder you selected is not available”. “

Any ideas why it's not working?  I would use public folders but you see those on a smartphone.

Gboard for Android and Windows desktop

I absolutely love Gboard. It works so seamlessly for voice-to-text, and for allowing you to re-use text clippings. The problem is that it only seems to be available for Android and iOS. I don't think there is a way to use it in Windows? This is disappointing, to say the least. Any assistance in finding some way to cross-platform this ability would be greatly appreciated.

I have a Droid user on outlook (cloud) with MA.  All his contacts are un-assigned.  They do not show via Blue Tooth in his car (Toyota).   If he puts them in a group they show up just fine.  As soon as outlook does its sync it un-assigns them.  Any suggestions on how to keep them in a group.

Hi,

I have a Samsung Galaxy S9 phone.

On this phone is an app that needs to be open in order to get the most out of the app.

Is there a way to have certain apps on this phone open once the phone is powered on and started up?

Thanks,

Hi,

I have an Android phone (Samsung Galaxy A3) which is connected to our network's WiFi.

There is a printer; (HP PageWide Pro 477dw), which is connected on our wired network.

Two apps have been installed on this phone;

1. Microsoft Outlook application
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.microsoft.office.outlook&hl=en_IE
2. HP Print Service Plugin
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hp.android.printservice

Email has been synced with Microsoft Office 365 and Outlook 2016 on network connected PCs.

I have logged in successfully to the Microsoft Outlook application on the Android phone and can access, send and receive emails.

The problem is that there is no option to print emails or to highlight an attachment in email and click print.

When viewing pictures from gallery and web pages through Google on the Android phone, there is the option for print and printing works successfully.

Is there a way of printing emails from the Outlook application on Android phones or if not, then what other alternative would there be?

Thanks,
Robbie

Hi,

I have a Samsung Note 9 phone.

My contacts are located in two different places; sim card and Gmail account.

There are different contacts in both of these places but would like all imported to Note 9 phone.

Also, there are some contacts which are the same in both places.

Is there a way of syncing together contacts in Gmail with contacts on this phone, where contacts were imported from sim card, without having duplication of contacts?

Thanks,
Robbie

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.

We currently have 200 android tablet devices in a CLOUD only environment, no on prem.

What i would like to do is for the tablets to have restricted internet access, what is the best way to do this? Do not want any app installation or the use of a subscription such as openDNS where there is a cost associated to it. Cant use free as there are restriction on additional entries (may be wrong)

Anyway, would love help with this and what I can do to achieve this, as I said we are cloud based and using MerakiSM MDM to manage these. Step by Step would also be appreciated.

Thanks

I have an application called Clipper installed  on my LG Smartphone. It syncs with my Samsung  tablet. It stores all clippings loosely and securely stores my hundreds of usernames  and passwords.

My crappy Smartphone is having serious problems,  so I am entertaining the thought of wiping it and Reset to Factory Settings.
Will the synced copy of Clipper on my tablet survive if I wipe the phone?

I looking for suggestions for our on-call after hours clinicians.

We currently have a business need where a rotation of 10 users needs to be contacted on a rotating but changing schedule. We need to be able to route call the users personal, business and home phones. Additionally, we'd like to be able to text or message users if necessary.

What program or application are you guys using for on-call or after hours support?

Support the build.gradle configured with compileSdkVersion 25. Should the dependencies be run in same version, ie 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:25.4.0'  ?


In resource\XML, there is 28 - 25 to choose from. Does it mean the android apps will be test to run under api 25 - 28 ?

Can I say my Android app will be compiled in v25 and will be tested in platform 25 - 28 ?

Thx

I am new to Samsung phones. I have a new S8 (running Android Oreo) and I want to be sure my notes can be restored if needed.

When I go to Setting > Cloud and Accounts > Samsung Cloud it shows Samsung Notes have synced but if I go to Notes > Settings > Import Data > (and select from google drive or Samsung account) I get the message: "No Memo data in Samsung account"

I don't have many notes yet so I can delete them and restore them to test it but how do I access the data to restore it? When I go to import data why does it say No Memo data?

Thanks,
PR
