Hello

I'm trying to take screenshots on the Samsung S8

Apparently this is done by pressing the right hand button along with one of the volume keys at the same time. All this seems to do is make the ringer volume go up or down.

I've tried this many times and it still doesn't work. Is there a setting I actually need to enable?

Many thanks in advance

There is a blue light Setting that basically reduces the brightness and supposedly the amount of blue light sent

But I'm not understanding this. The feature documentation says this is supposed to be enabled to help people sleep

But if I'm sleeping I'm not using my phone?

Or is this in case I wake up and check something ?

Or supposed to turn this feature on in the evening as I am starting to get tired so when I do check my phone it keeps me up less?

Hello

I understand with the Samsung S8 that there is the ability to view more than one app on the screen at the same time

Some questions

1. I know Mac can do this, can IOS iPhone and iPad

2. When I try this on a Samsung S8, i always seem to get the Settings as the first app and then any other app as the second. How can I get two real apps to run in multi screen

On the new Samsung Edge can there is a feature where the edge light will go off if there is a notification rather than a vibration or noise

Does anyone know

1. How to actually turn this on and simultaneously not have noise for notification

2. Does the S8 go into Do Not Disturb mode when someone puts it face down?

3. How can I control which notifications use this feature

Last week my Note 2's phone popped up the above message & while this message
is showing up, it won't allow any activity (reading, typing) etc in Whatsapp: it took
more than 15mins & I decided to power cycle it.

Presume its whatsapp messages/content being backup : does it backup to
the microSD card in the phone or to Cloud & how can I restore (ideally selective
restore of selected messages) ?

Do not comment on gmail auto fetch; looking for other reasons battery is losing power.
Gmail auto fetch may be the main reason but I would like to know other reasons

I need to keep gmail auto fetch; but how can I save power

 Screen dims right after I touch, there is no screen light also
 Goes to blank (less than screensaver)

 Samsung galaxy s6
  android 7

  on light screen power
  not auto updating

  loses 5% per hour battery power when I sleep every night

  I don't know what apps I am running

  I need to respond to messages so I can not just turn phone off all day to save battery power

  Is there a setting where I can get
  1 app, gmail, messages, phone calls
  so that is 4 apps

  can I just run those 4 apps

Is there a way to automatically have an alert set without having to manually add it when setting up an iPhone Callander event?  I might set one up manually or via Siri but the annoying thing is it does not add the alert by default.

Last week my Android popped up a message saying the memory of the phone is
full & whether to save into microSD (I can't recall the exact message).

Q1:
How can I choose what to save: say selective Whatsapp threads / groups    messages and images

Q2:
Can I choose to save photos in galleries & SMSes into the microSD as well?

Afternoon All

I am having a number of problems with clients using their cellphones to save contacts. They are linked to Office 365 and the devices vary between IOS and Android.

When saving contacts they do not manage where they are saved so it can either be saved in Whatsapp, Contacts on device or via Office 365. We then find that a year or two later they get a new device and the mission begins getting everything in sync.

Is there an easy way to make the device just use Office 365 when saving any contact from any app? I must admit I am finding the problems far more frustrating on Android than IOS. Specifically the Sony Xperia Z5 phones.

Any help would really be appreciated.

Hello. When I go into my Hotmail .com acct via the Outlook app on my Android phone, it indicates there are 12 draft emails. However, when I go into the Drafts folder there are none in there. New drafts are saved and they do appear in Drafts and I can delete them, but never these 12. If I go into Outlook on my PC it doesn't say I have 12 drafts, so it is just the phone app that is affected. Any ideas how to view and delete them? Thanks!

Am trying to set up my icloud email account on an Android phone (Doro 8030). I have carefully followed all the instructions in setting it up. As follows:
 
User name (excluding the '@icloud.com part .  Email address and Password.   Incoming Server: imap:mail.me.com. Security Type SSL, Server Port: 993.  Outgoing Server: smtp.mail.me.com . Security Type SSL (I have also tried STARTTLS).  Server Port: 587.

 However when I finally press 'Confirm' I get the following Message: 'Could not connect to email server, please check your email settings. '
I cannot get any further than this.

I'm an iphone user. I have only had iphones. I currently have the iphone 6 plus.
I have AT & T as my service provider.

I was thinking of getting the Samsung galaxy S8.
I want to have both phones.
I still want to keep my iphone.

I never had an android phone so was I wondering the following.

Is it possible if I own both phones to use both phones with my current AT & T service.

What I mean is,  can I use my iPhone on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.
Then on Tuesday and Thursdays take the sim card out of my iphone and put it in the galaxy s8 and then use that phone on these days?

Will that work?

Or

Is there some other way that I can do this like with some adapter or something?

Has anyone does this before?

We are looking at a couple of applications for voice recording on corporate owned mobile devices. We want these to be hidden, such that the user can't delete these. Is this possible on iOS / Android? I'm not sure what the correct term is but I've chosen 'headless'.

Going one step further, is it possible to prevent these being stopped from running on iOS/Android?

Hello

I quite often make visits to buildings where there is no Wi-Fi I can utilise. In the meetings, I'd like to be able to use my laptop and have it connected to my work VDI.

I have a personal MacBook Air with a USB port. What is the best solution to have in order to connect to a 3G/4G connection via Cell to provide me internet access at an efficient price? Since I am actually connecting to my work VDI, this will only be light browsing traffic, no downloads or anything.

Thanks in advance.
