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.

Hi Experts,

I recently consolidated a number of contacts that were duplicated in my contacts list on my Android S9+ mobile phone.

Now I've noticed that a lot of the consolidated contacts have the wrong avatar of the persons face, in many cases, the avatar on the contact is of a totally different person than who the contact in my phone really is.

Can anyone explain the best way to fix this so that the pictures on the contacts are correct? Please include step by step instructions if possible as I'm relatively new to Android phones, being an Iphone user for many years.

Many thanks for any help.

Regards, Andrew

Referring to above unfinished EE thread,

Q1:
will anything break if I move Whatsapp photos/images from Phone to microSD & if needed,
later move the photos/images back to the phone?

Q2:
Would like to clarify what Tim Green mentioned below: I could not locate it.

"Just because it doesn't cache the email, it still save info about the mailbox that will be needed for connectivity.
The move process may be a bit different depending on the android device but you can do it like this for the most part:

1.Navigate to settings on your phone
2.Tap Apps.
3.Select an app you want to move to the microSD card.
4.Tap Storage.
5.Tap Change if it's there. If you don't see the Change option, the app cannot be moved.
6.Tap Move. "

After installing MobilePass (a 2FA/OTP app for use with Checkpoint
VPN), it has required my Android phone to enter a PIN : previously
I just need to swipe the screen.

The issue is: since MobilePass app is installed, all my various
Whatsapp groups don't give a sound/alert even if I set custom
notifications.  However, the new whatsapp messages will still
pop up (if I set a custom notification).

I would like the sound notifications for new messages at set
by custom notifications.

How can I indicate to my iPhone X that I am walking (and not driving) while I am using the built-in GPS map services to provide me with turn by turn directions?

This is especially important since I visit a lot of towns that have one-way streets.

I'm looking for an iPhone app/service that will make all outgoing phone calls originate from another phone number.

This way all calls that I place on my iPhone X will display this other phone number on the caller ID screen of the person I am calling so that I won't reveal my iPhone X phone number.

This is something that Google Voice used to do until June 1, 2018 (due to the Google Voice app no longer integrating with cell phone providers like it used to).

What apps or services will allow this to be done?

How can the changing cord could be fast or slow charge?   I understand the charger but the cord itself...  There;s no components to it.
This one for example:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0767CYH4W/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Is it a fast or slow charge?

I've got a Dell XPS laptop running Windows 10 and a Samsung Galaxy A8.
When I plug the Samsung into the laptop, the laptop thinks it's a power supply for charging and therefore rejects it.
Untitled.pngHow can I tell the Dell to connect the Samsung for data transfer rather than thinking it's a power supply?

Lately, when I have been taking pictures with my iPhone X some of the pictures have been captured as movie files (.MOV) instead of just regular pictures (.JPG files).

How can I change this so that when I use the camera app on my iPhone it will only capture picture and won't capture movie files?

Which cellular carrier has the best coverage?
There's a lot of marketing that says Verizon is the best.  But is it really?
And how about the super-cheap cellular services.  Which carrier are they using.  Surely the smaller brands don't have their own network backbone.

Another wierd observation!  Some people are able to surf the net on their smartphones in the NYC subways, others can't!  The transit authority WiFi ain't that good.  So, its gotta be the cellular carrier.
I appreciate links to useful studies, articles, or videos.

What are the best mounts for mounting an iPhone X to my car's dashboard so that I can follow my iPhone X's GPS navigation?

This must be a dashboard mount that I can easily move between cars since I drive several different cars. I also want it to be easy to detach and reattach my iPhone X to such a mount since I take my iPhone X with me wherever I go. I am looking for a mount that I can put on top of my dashboard and not one that attaches to the air vents, etc.

Let me know what the best mounts are that I can buy online or through Amazon.

After my kid helped me install Facebook, Messenger &
a few other apps (CamScanner etc), now I can't share out
my Whatsapp images via Gmail anymore:

After I selected an image in Whatsapp, select "Share", will
get to the 1st attachment which used to have an option for
Gmail but now it doesn't show the "Gmail" option anymore.
Instead when I tap on "Email" will get to the 2nd attachment's
screen which says "No email was set up" : previously it was
set up & there.

Hmm, I think I uninstalled Gmail app & disabled a couple of apps
 when I was low on storage space : could this be the reason?

Also, I've been getting beeping notifications sounds though there's
no new Whatsapp nor SMS messages coming in: could it be one of
the new app (Facebook, Messenger, ... ?)

Have a Samsung S9+ Android Phone that I purchased and am very pleased with. It's the first Android phone I've ever owned and I think it craps all over all of the iPhone's I've used for many years :)

There are three things I'd like to get for it though and not sure what and where to purchase these items online.

1)  A decent phone holder to use in my car so I can use it hands-free. I just want something that will hold the phone firmly and allow me to talk while driving as I can get "Bixby" or "OK Google" to answer any calls for me by just using that feature.

2)  A good protective case for it that doesn't restrict any functions like the buttons and camera and hopefully, still being able to use my Finger to unlock the phone while it's still in its case.

3)  A suitable charging cable that will plug into my car's cigarette lighter socket.

Cost of the items is not so much of an issue, the quality of the products, however, is.

Can anyone suggest a good place to purchase the above items online?  

Also  perhaps suggest what you use for the above purposes if you own the same phone?

Thanks.

What "security lockdown" method (i.e. Symantec EndPoint Mobile, etc) do you recommend for corporate Verizon Android phones that are connected to a 200 user onPremise Exchange Server to somehow lock down so users cannot

  1. install APPS on their phone, only allowing UPDATES for existing "IT approved" apps to work
  2. browse to websites that are on a blacklist/etc

automatic call recorder
free version
app version 5.42.1

recordings were good then I noticed last recording was at a low volume
Maybe in a version upgrade
volume is lower which is very difficult to hear
If I pay for paid version, do you think this will fix.

My Galaxy Note 4 (already updated to latest Android) tends to lose
connectivity to GPS (even though the connection to cellular/mobile
data network seems to be intact) while driving for 3 to 30 secs.

I'm using Waze.  The disconnection can happen even on a bright
sunny day (ie don't have to be cloudy/rainy days) or in open
highway (ie not while going through tunnels).

The same SIM card was previously used on my Galaxy Note 2 for
for almost a whole year previously & I never had this issue.

Is this a known issue with Note 4 or the Telco ?  Maybe one way I
can test this is to use the Note 4 as a hotspot (tethering) to an
iPhone & test to see if Waze/GPS  disconnects intermittently:
map is still there but there's a red alert message that 'connection
to GPS is disconnected' at the top of the screen.

I only noted 2 changes:
1. I switch from Note 2 to Note 4 at around the time I disposed
    the old Honda Airwave to Toyota Sienta hybrid: not sure if
    there's something in Sienta that interferes
2. Note4 tends to get very heated up while Note2 is not that
    hot while Waze is in use: I've since taken out the backcover
    of the Note4 (& used scotch tapes to hold the battery & SIM
    card in place) when in use so that the heat dissipates

What is the process for setting up an Office 365 shared email account within the built-in mail app on an iPhone?

The user who will be setting up this app already has full rights to both this shared email account and full rights to send emails directly from this shared email account.
