Samsung Moment - Deactivate Screen Lock

I don't mean the lock pattern. I mean the very first screen after you push end to wake up the phone? I hate having to push menu and am wondering if there is a way around this that i'm missing somewhere.

Htc Desire - App To Use A Numeric Password To Lock Phone

Has anybody found an app that will just let me use a numeric password to lock my desire?

Pattern lock is a great idea, but you end up with the pattern being visible if you don't wipe it down all the time, and that drives me crazy!

Samsung Moment - Evo Vs Moment / Out Of Range Service Beeps

I am eligible to upgrade, but i want to get some opinions before i decide. I will not purchase or pre-order the evo either before it has a few weeks to settle in and also monitoring others experiences. My concern is that some of my gripes with the moment my not be corrected or addressed with htc either.

- Anyone here have htc experience as far as durability and dependability vs samsung moment. Physically and structurally to me, the moment has been great, want the same from evo/htc

- Gps, my moment sucks, what experiences have others had with comparable htc phones vs say blackberry which works wonderfully for us

- Out of range service beeps, these on htc phones or just the moment

- Cdma lockups, on my moment they are more recurring now with 2. 1 than before. Is there any reports of this with the htc phones

Hate not having a keyboard (evo), but these things actually are distractive enough for me to consider a replacement.

Samsung Galaxy S Lock Screen Stays On

The other day i fell asleep with my vibrant in my pocket woke up 3 hrs later and it was dead. Had no idea why, id only had it less than 24 hrs, and it was almost fully charged b4 i passed out. Well sitting here with the phone on my desk today i got a text, didnt look at the text, and the screen stays on the "sweep screen to unlock" screen fully lit up until i do something with it. I just got a text and its goin on 14 minutes of that screen. Problem fixed as to why it died, but why is it doin that? Is it written into the program, is my phone jacked up, is there a setting? Cuz ive checked all those. My screen is supposed to time out after 1 min which it does if im doing something or have just done somethin and set it down. Thanks in advance for the help and input.

Way To Change Vibration Pattern For Phone / Sms / Email

I'm new to android, coming over from bb, so please forgive me if i ask some stupid questions below. I need some assistance on a few things:

1) i have the htc incredible with sense ui, but i notice that when contacts im me in gchat, the im isn't linked the sense ui message panels for that particular person. For example, if john smith ims me in gchat, and i go under people->john smith, i don't see that im. I have to go directly to the talk app. Is there any way to fix this so that all chats, sms, etc are linked under john smith's name?

2) some of my contacts have been autolinked to facebook, but i notice that - even though the facebook picture is already linked - the contact page asks if i want to "link to facebook. " I've also noticed there are two facebooks, htc sense and regular. Is this why i'm getting this message? Why would i need to link it twice?

3) is there any way to get a combined email box where all emails (exchange, gmail) and smss come into one inbox, without having to toggle between accounts. I'm used to this on my bb and find it much more efficient.

4) is there any way to change the vibration pattern for phone, sms, email, etc? On my bb, without even looking, i always knew if i was getting a call vs an email vs an sms because of the vibration pattern.

Samsung Captivate - Lock Screen Isn't Really Secure

The other day i had my captivate lying next to my bed, when i realized that i could actually easily see the unlock path on my phone's screen from certain angles. Sure i hadn't cleaned it prior to putting it down, but who does?Perhaps or those of you who use swype this isn't an issue, but i realized that the only time i do an elongated swipe is to unlock the phone. I don't use "swype" for input so the only other drag marks on my screen are from answering calls or flipping through pages of apps and those are much smaller motions, easy to distinguish.

I think the option for a numeric input like a pin code would be much better. Even if the four to 6 digits of the pin were visible on the screen, the order would not be and there would still enough guessing required on-average. Am i too paranoid or anyone else found this also?

Samsung Moment - Is Screen Too Small

I am one of the lurkers who is considering getting a moment over the evo and epic because of costs. However, i'm worried i'm going to hate the smaller screen. It is still a good screen, but 3. 2 inches or whatever it is is pretty small for a smartphone. I have the htc touch pro2 right now, and it's ok, thank god for htc and touchflow. Anyway it's time to get android in october.

I wouldn't even consider the intercept because it's rev. 0. So, is the screen too small? How often do the data lock ups happen? I've been to 2 or 3 different sprint stores and neither moment worked when i went to play with it, after a reboot, data worked. So i'm assuming that was the issue on those phones. Is an android 2. 2 custom rom going be done for this phone?I see the wifi tether is a go so that is good. Has anyone purchased and extra battery and charger? As in a charger that you just snap the battery into while you use the other one in the phone? Is there one that you recommend? Is the battery life really that bad?

Samsung Moment - How To Forward Message

Had this phone a couple weeks now and still haven't figured out some of it. Text messaging: how do you forward a message? How do you send a text or forward it to multiple contacts?Is there any way to save or "lock" a text message? Picture mail:how do you forward a picture message?Is there a way to "upload" or save a picture that you receive as picture mail?

General:how can you copy and paste a link or text into a text message or e-mail? How can you "refresh" a page in the browser? Example - refreshing a "live" game internet broadcast like on espn or cbs. I have more - but that'll do for now.

Log From A Samsung Moment User

If you have a samsung moment and have adb working for it, would you mind downloading deadly chambers demo off the android market and running it with the log up for me?I'm getting reports of it "not opening" but no additional details. Just the crash log would help tremendously. I think all you need to do is install and try to play the game.

I can return the favor with an evo, tattoo, g1, n1, archos 5 or droid.

How Good Is Samsung Moment Phone ?

I'm a sprint hero user, my girlfriend is thinking about joining my plan and getting a moment. I know a good amount about android now but not about the moment. Would she be able to use the touchscreen to text or only the keyboard? And what are the good and bad features of the phone? Thanks for the help guys!

Samsung Moment - Camera Driver All Messed Up In 2.1 / What To Do

Google goggles is nearly unusable because if i try to use the 'crop' feature, it misplaces it due to some bug in the camera driver and/or app. The visible area for taking a pic is not as large as the actual resolution, so it's like the viewfinder only sees the upper left 3/4 of what you're taking a pic of.

Very annoying. I'm going to ask sprint to give me a chance to upgrade my phone early in light of all the issues this phone has had. I'm sure some of you aren't as agitated as me or as picky as i am, but i have pretty much had it with this phone. I shouldn't have to learn to get around quirks and bugs or have to use root access for full functionality. It's ridiculous. All this time waiting for the 2. 1 update, and they not only didn't get it right, but they cut out features.

Samsung Moment - Multiple Sd Cards As Backup

After reading about rooting my moment, it seems most changes are made to files on the sd card.
I have the original sd card that came with the phone and i use a larger capacity card in the phone. Question is, if i had to take the phone to sprint after rooting, could i just put the original card in the phone and recover to factory? Or is it more complicated than that?

Basically, stock phone on the original sd card and my rooted phone on the other card.

Edit: found the major error in my thinking.
