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.

There is an app titled Samsung Smart Switch Mobile that supports such transfers.
Sadly, it appears that there is not a copy of the APP for the Samsung GT-P7500.
When I attempt to download the APP to the  Samsung GT-P7500 it fails.
Who knows maybe I am looking for the APP in the wrong area of the Internet....

How do I get around this challenge?
Thanks!

My Samsung Galaxy S8 phone is stuck at the "LTE Plus More Spectrum Better network" screen & won't power off.

It was powered on and the battery level was around 85% when this happened.

Now the phone has simply stopped responding.

I have held the power button down for several minutes but there is no response including while the phone is plugged into power.

The phone is also starting to get hot.

What can be done to fix this?

How can I make the show desktop menu stay at bottom of a Samsung Galaxy S8 phone?

How can I prevent a Samsung Galaxy S8 from constantly prompting to join Wi-Fi networks?

If the phone finds a Wi-Fi network and has the password saved for that network I want it to join that network but otherwise if it finds a Wi-Fi network such as a Comcast Wi-Fi network that a Comcast subscriber can join I don't want it to prompt to join that network.

This Android phone also has the secure Wi-Fi app installed.

My parents are both on t-mobile and both have iPhone 5s.
Occasionally their voicemails come few hours late.  Text messages are even worse.  Once I reboot one of their phones and received a dozen of texts messages from two weeks ago.

Is that an issue with t-mobile network or something else?  This is in US.
Thanks.

Hi,

I want two Android devices to communicate with each other Via USB only.
I have two apps, One as a USB Server and other as a USB client. The Server Device recognizes the client device and is able to fetch the USB configuration. But the client device does not recognizes the server device.
Can someone help me head in the right direction or let me know what am I doing wrong?


Thanks.

What is the process to add the clock app icon to the main Samsung Galaxy S8 screen's list of icons?

Currently I have to search for the clock app and I would prefer for this icon to be located on the main Samsung Galaxy S8 screen so that I can easily access it.

I was cleaning up some mailboxes (disabling ActiveSync on mailboxes the employee isn't authorized to access email from their phone) and came across the setting to enable/disable OWA for Devices. At first, I mistook this as the setting for the PC browser-based OWA feature, then I noticed that as a separate option. So after some quick Googling, I see there are three ways for people to access their email from a Smartphone:

1. ActiveSync using the built-in mail app, such as an iPhone's Mail app
2. Using the Outlook app
3. Using the OWA app

So... I guess my questions are:

1. What's the difference?
2. I know the built-in mail app uses ActiveSync, and the OWA app will use OWA for Devices. Which does the Outlook app use?
3. Does it matter which method employees use, or is it just a personal preference?

I've always used the built-in mail app when setting up my own and everyone's Smartphones. I like the ability to have one app check work email, personal email, gmail, etc. Since I have not set up the OWA app on any devices, I'm wondering if I should just disable that on everyone's mailbox.

I have added a home location to Google Maps on my Galaxy S6 phone, but am not able to add a work location.

On the screen where you set these addresses (Your places, labelled), my home address is there, and there is a spot for my work address, but when I tap "set work address". the box flashes to acknowledge the tap, but nothing happens.
In researching the problem, I found some mention that "Web & App Activity" must be on for setting your work address. So I went to the settings, and there is a line that say it is off, but no indicator of how to change it.

Every search I do is filled with discussion about not being able to set a work address because Google Maps won't accept a name of a place. My problem is different since I don't have the opportunity to add anything.

I have an Exchange Server 2010 that is currently running activesync and 3 phones are syncing with it.  The server name and the SSL certificate all references the firms old domain name.  I set this up 4 years ago with the assistance of paid for technical support and have forgotten most of what we had to do.  I have googled articles about it but have not found anything that goes into details.  Does anyone have a link to a good set of instructions for modifying or setting it up?

Hi, It's been quite a while since I connected my phone to my computer so I don't know if I'm doing something wrong but can't imagine what it might be.  I connected the phone to one usb port and got no action on the phone or the computer. I switched over to another usb port and no action.  I then switched cables and tried both usb ports and no action.  Finally, I rebooted my computer and again no action.

I was expecting to see something show up under This PC or in the Device Manager but I see nothing.  A couple of times I heard a faint sound from the phone, like it connected to something but that was it.  

Is it possible that I have to change my settings either on the phone or the computer?
Thanks in advance.

I used this Note 5 for 2+ years with a great experience.  Great phone - large bright screen 5.7" 2560x1440 pixels, fast 4GB RAM and 32GB Storage, 16mp camera.   All good except.. battery life is terrible.  Time for an upgrade.  
Should I stick with Samsung and go with Note 8 or what would be other recommendations?  

Thanks in advance.

Is there a feature available within a Samsung Galaxy S8 to allow rings and notifications only from certain phone numbers? This feature is available for iPhones and now I'm trying to figure out how to activate this feature on a Samsung Galaxy S8 cell phone

This is a very important feature for me to have while I'm sleeping and only want to be disturbed by certain people.

I'm going to be starting a project where I need to be able to answer my phone 24 hours a day.

I also need to be able to completely silence all other alerts from my phone so the only times I will be woken up will be if someone calls or texts my Google voice number.

Is there a way to completely turn off new call, email, & text alerts on Samsung Galaxy S8 accept for Google Voice alerts?
