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.

Specific to healthcare and the privacy issues associated with it, I am looking for an app that can notify a therapist that a patient has arrived for an appointment, has canceled or will be delayed.  Ideally, there would be a smartphone app for therapists and a web front end for the receptionist to use to send out pre-set messages like "Patient has arrived."  No protected health information will be transmitted, just generic notifications for "patient."  I want to avoid using SMS if I can.  Does anyone have experience with any notification systems like this?  I am just dealing with a single receptionist and a group of 6 therapists.  Any inexpensive and proven solution is welcome.

I noticed usually  at night (though I'm uncertain at time), my Note4 (which I bought as
a used device) will go into 'silent mode' ie when new Whatsapp/SMS comes, it is quiet
despite that on some crucial Whatsapp group, I set 'Custom notifications" to alert
with sounds (as I am on-call 24x7).

I will notice that following will become disabled (ie at the lowest/minimum setting)
& after enabling it back, it will go back again & again (with each day) without
intervention from me.
  Settings => Sounds & Notifications => Notifications

When new Whatsapp comes, the pop-up still appear tho
(this is a setting under  Custom Notifications)

When I first got the device from the seller, there's a pop-up saying "Good Night,
do you want to silent your phone" which I will cancel but I don't see this pop-up
anymore the last 2 weeks.

What can I do to disable this 'auto-silent' mode which doesn't reverse itself
even day breaks (it's morning)?

Hi

I have a Samsung S8. I notice there are a couple of different home screens.

1. Home screen (has a tiny house icon at the bottom) has no apps by default
2. If i swipe that screen to the side, then I get another screen which has various apps (but not stuff like phone)
3. If i swipe UP, then i get a black screen which has all apps + phone + SMS + Settings

This seems a bit confusing. What's the point, why not just have one home screen(s) like Apple and I can move apps around?

Hi,

I have a smart phone (Samsung Galaxy S4).
I will be in travelling, and I am not able to bring my computer.
I use the WhatApps (=WA) application for chatting (daily basis); I usually move the files from WA (Video, audio and picture) to my computer every day.

Question: Is there any device that I can use to move the above files every day (Note: I am not able to bring my laptop).

Thanks,
tjie

Hi,

I have a Samsung SmartPhone with numerous photos and a few videos. I need to get them on to my PC (Windows).I hooked it up to a USB port on my computer. I see a bunch of folders, including PHOTOS. However, this folder seems not to have my videos. (On the phone, they seem to be in same folder.)

Here's a list of folders. Where would the videos be?

Where is video folder?

Thanks,
Steve

I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 that recently started having almost a 'lag' issue on my push notifications.  I'm talking the badge number next to Facebook, Messages, E-mail, that sort of thing.  The numbers do not match my notification and do not clear when I check the app.  However, they do eventually clear.  Another issue in conjunction with this is the notification bar at the top that you drag down.  I'll be told of an e-mail or post from an hour ago.  Or, with Facebook's "nearby" deal, I have been told someone is nearby at 8:17AM, but it tells me at 8:40AM, 12:30PM, and again at 2PM.  But, it STILL says it was from 8:17AM.

I have replaced my SIM card since I thought this was the issue, and it was slightly burned, but the issue still persists.  So, now I'm posting it on here.  Any suggestions?

I have a Samsung galaxy S6 (SM-G920F) from a friend. The display is broken (black screen). And additionally the cell phone is locked. :-(
So I can not make a data recovery/data transfer to another device since all is locked. I have tried Wondershare AND FoneLab software. There is a need to make a special order of pushing the home/power/volume-up-buttons. It onced worked, but not more anymore. Any other ideas how I can get the old data ?
(the cell phone is not rooted, USB-debugging is NOT turned on, I also tried OLG-USB keyboard to connect with no luck)

I used "Custom Notifications" on my Galaxy Note 2 previously for some critical Whatsapp group
(which I need to respond urgently) by making new messages to pop up with a custom sound.

After migrating to Note4 (Note2's screen broke), I set the same custom notifications but only
the "popup" for new messages surface but no sound.  Is there a setting somewhere that I
missed?

I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 and I use Android Auto to connect to my car.  I recently lost the ability to use the voice command "Ok Google". I can still prompt it if I touch the mic on my car dashboard and then voice command whatever I want it to do..

Note: That this has worked before with my current set up. It may of stopped working after a recent phone update, but I can't be sure.

My settings in Android Auto are on to allow voice command. Are there any other settings that might be causing this?

What's the best way to troubleshoot?

We are having an issue with mobile users not receiving emails that have attachments when working from home on Wi-Fi.  Email without attachments are received without issue.  

When users return to office and connect to wired network connection, all emails are received (including the ones with attachments that did not come in the day before when working from home on Wi-Fi).

 The users are connected to office network through Sonic Wall Global VPN Client to access files and folders on servers, but email is hosted using Office 365 Business Essentials, email only.  VPN is not required for them to access email.  Outlook 2010 and 2013 on users laptops.  

Any help is appreciated.

We need a stable and reliable video conferencing solution to have a meeting between our US office and some customers in China.  Does anyone have any recent experience or knowledge about which video conferencing solution (e.g. GoToMeeting, Skype, etc.) works well for video conferences between China and the US?

Previously on my Note2, when I click an entry in the Contacts, it will come out with option to
make phone call, to SMS and to Whatsapp.

Now, I'm on Note4 (Android V6.0.1), when I click an entry in Contacts, it only give option to
make phone call & SMS,  nothing on Whatsapp.    How can I get Whatsapp option back?
Do provide step by step instruction as I'm not good with mobile phones

Q1:
Does Galaxy Note 4 comes in 64GB or bigger internal storage?

Q2:
If I get a 32GB Note 4 but run out of space, what are the things I can move to the microSD?
Whatsapp threads & its photos/videos tend to take most of my phone's storage so can
these be moved to the microSD?  What about installing apps on the microSD?

Q3:
Silly question but is there any way to increase the 32GB storage at stores etc?

Free Tool: SSL Checker

Free Tool: SSL Checker

Scans your site and returns information about your SSL implementation and certificate. Helpful for debugging and validating your SSL configuration.

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.

In my older Note2 (which is now broken), I was able to change my Tethering or Mobile Hotspot
SSID name & its password but on my current Note4 (I purchased it as a used set), I could only
enable it but could not locate anything on this Android 6.0.1 anything to change the name & password.

Another query:
I recall there's a setting where the first letter after a fullstop will be auto-capitalized & the standalone
letter "i" will be auto-capitalized: can't seem to find this setting.

What processes could be used to identify either unused smartphone or tablet devices which have not communicated or synched with corporate systems and what tools can be used to enforce security controls on such devices.

We have a process for identifying stale laptpps which have no recent login in Ad but want sinilar from smartphones / tablets to ensure they havent been lost or stolen or that when an employee leaves the company they return devices and they are added to the stock room and redistributed as possible.

Also - what security controls do you enforce on mobile devices such as smartphone or tablet and how do you prevent users amending the security controls.

My old Galaxy Note 2 dropped & the screen goes blank : after resetting (& removing battery), occasionally,
it boots up (but with blank screen) & I can hear sound (or even phone calls to it: when I connect my Win 7
laptop to the Note2 with a USB cable, somehow driver did not install :
I'm looking for a microUSB to HDMI cable to view the Note2 screen

Recommend me a couple of freeware running on Win 7 that could copy out everything (all my
Whatsapp conversations, photos, Contacts, SMSes) and ideally the apps (I have AXS, ACRcalls,
various browsers and their bookmarks) out to a Note4 (I just bought this used Note4).

I'll need to retain the Android 6.x on this Note4 (ie don't copy over the Android 4.x from the
Note2) as some sites dont allow Android 4.x to connect to them anymore

I have a mobile phone which is a LG Optimus L70 (LGMS323) and the carrier is Ultra Mobile.  I have now a gifted Apple iPhone5.  My question is if I can transfer the SIM card from the LG to my apple iPhone5, and the phone number will function as the old LG.  Thank u and regards

My Galaxy Note 2 can be upgraded to the highest version of Android 4.x only.

I like Notes as it comes with fine-head stylus and fits my palms just nice but I need to upgrade to higher versions as some of my company sites can't be accessed unless I upgrade to higher versions of Androids (for security reasons).

I need to make a few decisions on whether to get used Note 3, Note 4 or Note X based on a few questions below which I need experts to answer:
a) I heard newer model phones nowadays dont allow batteries to be changeable so does Note 3, 4 or 5 allow batteries to be taken out & replaced?
b) which models of Note allows upgrade of Android to the current latest available versions?
c) which of the Note 3, 4, 5 has a width that is the same or 1mm wider only (but not narrower) than Note 2

I'm running Windows 10 v1709 build 16299.214. When I link my Android phone via Settings > Phone there is additional text above the Manage phone section. The text says:

Your Progress
(a line of grayed-out icons representing Edge, Cortana, Outlook, Skype, OneDrive, LinkedIn)
You don't have any linked apps. Add your phone to get started. Learn more.

Because this area is grayed out I can't click on Learn More. I have a number of those apps already installed in my Pixel 2 XL: Edge, Cortana, and OneDrive. I can share an item from Edge via "Continue on PC" and it works OK.

What's up with these icons? Should they be turning from gray to an "active" color? The text suggests as much (ie: Your Progress).

I have unlinked and relinked but the message persists. Google didn't return any useful search results re. this.

Thanks for any insight.
