Our Android phone keeps losing its messaging function. It will receive notices about Gmail, but if we're waiting for a notification to come in from say twitter, because we need a code to help us log in, that type of message isn't arriving.

We've fixed it a few times by going into apps, then messaging, and deleting the cache and storage, then rebooting. But it's a huge pain to have to do that, and it takes 15 minutes or more for that to work.

Anything we can do?

Say, My Android phone is backing up call log history to google drive. I can view the file under backups in Google Drive. How do I download this file and inspect it? I want to view the raw data.

Does Google keep older backups or each time over right them and if so is there a setting or way to keep a history of backup files?

Say, I have an android Black Berry Key one with Google Backups enabled. I'm after restoring a backup of my call logs from 5 months ago.
How do I go about this? tx Shaun

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 a 16GB per month plan from Verizon.  I got an email that said I can go to unlimited for 2 dollars more a month.  Is this legit?  Is there a catch that anyone knows of?  Here is a screenshot of the ad.

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?

Looking to upgrade my wife's iPhone 6 to a 7 plus or 8 plus.  I generally buy used phones if they cost enough less than new.  Is this a good strategy?  Second question is if 8 plus is worth the extra cost. I looked over the specs and many of them are the same.  She enjoys her iPhone but she's not a power user.  Likes the idea of a larger screen mostly.  Also looking for any suggestions as to good places to buy a used phone.  We use Consumer Cellular which is AT&T.
Thanks,
Al

I have 2 Galaxy Note4 : both of them tends to run out of battery
power pretty quickly (the one from Korea stays a bit longer)
despite that I replace with new batteries (merchant claims they're
original).

Then one colleague told me he faced the same issue (esp from
40-50%, it can suddenly go down to 0%) when running more
intensive apps like Waze GPS despite that he replaces the battery.

I then got this high mAH high capacity battery from Amazon:
https://www.amazon.com/Lifespan-6980mAh-Extended-SM-N910A-Smartphone/dp/B07NL42B5Q/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=Note+4+battery&qid=1565667061&s=gateway&sr=8-3
It took longer to charge & last longer too (but at around 30-40%)
or when the phone is on standby over the night for 11 hours, it'll
just go flat the next morning (despite that it was initially at 90%+).
I did set the brightness to almost 0 overnight with "mobile data"
off (but Wifi is On at home) & the "task manager" shows only
Whatsapp & Messages  apps are running overnight.

Is this quick-draining of batteries an issue with the old phone (&
can this be tuned) or there's some apps that can be tuned/removed
to reduce the battery draining.

Or all the batteries I've got so far are not good (which I doubt)??

I have an LG G3 which has now become unstable even when restarted into safe mode. The process system is now crashing right away, having got progressively earlier in its crashing behaviour. Using a different battery had no effect. The phone is rooted. I run termux on it

I'm wondering if it might be time to start over and install say a Lineage image. The problem is that i'm as yet pretty ignorant about phones at the hardware and system land level. What are the best sources of information? Do you have any suggestions about fixes?

I have been investigating the flagship phones from the Chinese brands. Specifically looking at the Xiaomi Mi9T. I know it isn't quite as good as the 1plus offering, but wondering if anyone has any experience with these phones compared to the likes of other popular Android phones such as Samsung? The websites that compare performance seem to show they are fairly close.

FYI Only looking/comparing Android phones, not into iPhones.

Thanks!

I'm looking for a 64bit smartphone with removable battery & microSD slot.
Any Oppo models have this?

if none of the Oppo models have the 2 features, I can consider any other
models as long as the internal capacity is 64GB or more.

I have many voicemails that I transferred from my Android phone Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with a file extension .smil. that I can not listen to . Can you advise me on what to use in order to listen to them? Also, why does the voice mail gets recorded in this file extension not other ones like .avi or .mp3?  Thank you

I'm after recommendations for a sim card for Travelling to Europe, specifically Portugal, England, France, Switzerland and Italy.

Just want something that is predominantly for data but has enough phone credit for calling ahead to hotels, restaurants etc.  It also needs to work across all the countries without having to change all the time.

Say, what can I do to speed up the Blackberry Q20 ? It's got much slower now with all the Apps installed on it. I have tried uninstalling as many Apps as I can. There is still plenty of free storage space on the phone and the SD card. Memory usage fluctuates between normal and moderate. Please advise.

I'm looking to control shades via Google Home smartphone software?

I found this on Amazon for under $100 and it says it's compatible with Google Home.

However, I really don't have any idea if this is the best place to start.

https://www.amazon.com/Internal-Re-Chargeable-Automatic-Motorized-Compatible/dp/B07RWTYDXG/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=google+home+automatic+shade&qid=1558928368&s=gateway&sr=8-6

What's really necessary for this?

Does Google also offer a way to control TV's also through a phone app?

Hi Experts,

I have a client with O365 and Exchange2016 and PublicFolders.
They sync their contacts from a publicfolder. But this is not possible anymore with O365.

Do you know a solution to sync contacts from a publicfolder to a mobile , like Android or Iphone ?
The solution should work without any user interaction.

Here are the specs on the phone being offered through our carrier.
https://whatismyphone.com/vendors/zte/quest-plus-z3001s

It does not say which version of Android. We currently have Android ? and need 5.0 or higher. The above phone is our "only" choice. Keep what we have (which we acquired about 2 years ago and which has Android 4.4.4) or take the one above which was released last year. Should it have Android 5.0 or higher?

>> required >> for a specific app > Android devices running on platform 5.0 and newer

Is there such a thing as a backup software for android, I have my Samsung S9 plus, and am currently using smart switch, which with 78 GB, takes a long time every time I have to backup the complete entire phone. Does someone have software that will do incremental backups on the Samsung phone?

Is there a way to send text messages to a group without displaying the phone numbers / ID's of the members in the group thus achieving the same results as blind copying contacts on an email?  I use both android and ios phones.

My current phone is LG Expressions Plus (LM-X410ASR)
It's only been two weeks and it definitely seems to be slowing.
2 GB Memory
Based on this article, it seems that 2 gb - 4 gb is the standard recommendation.
