Can't Wakeup Phone Using Bluetooth - Samsung Galaxy S2


I have paired the phone with my bluetooth successfully and had used it a few times. The problem is when the phone is sleeping (i.e. Screen locked), i tried pressing the button on my bluetooth but it won't wake up the phone. I have to first unlock the screen and then place calls. This is very inconvenient when i was driving, and defeat the purpose of using the bluetooth. I have been using the iphone 4 before and it does not have this problem. When i press the button on the bluetooth, it wakes the phone up and activate voice command immediately, even when the screen is locked.

I have searched everywhere in the setting and can't find anything that allows me to do this. Your help would be appreciated for this noob.

Bluetooth Device Crashing Phone After 2.3.5 Update For Samsung Galaxy S2

I never had issues with my phone until i updated to 2. 3. 5 and one day i accidentally turned on bluetooth got a notification about bluetooth devices and it just crashed. After that it would reload to lock screen within several seconds but the bluetooth will automatically turn on again and proceed to crash my phone.

The only way i have stopped the crashing, is to put it on flight mode. Which is no good as i can't use 3g and cannot receive calls or call. Really frustrated that i cannot use a phone to call! Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Bluetooth Bug - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I have been experiencing a 100% repeatable bug affecting the bluetooth on my galaxy nexus. First a little background: i connect my gn to my car's bluetooth for hands-free, and i also connect it to the tunelink adapter for bluetooth audio playback because my car doesn't support it. Both devices only register as having the only profile they're capable of: the tunelink knows it can only do "media audio" and the car knows it can only do "phone audio. "

Now the problem: the problem is, when both devices are connected to the gn, every single phone call i make is a garbled mess. Ever since i got the tunelink, i've hand to initiate calls and then switch them to handset or speaker mode, and that's not a good thing when you have to drive in d. C. Every once and a while with their handsfree laws.

If i'm in the middle of one of these garbled calls and i unplug the tunelink and wait for the bluetooth connection to drop, the call clears up immediately. But this just isn't a suitable solution to the problem, and repeated stress on my car's power outlets isn't a good thing.

Does anyone have a solution? I can't get rid of the tunelink. It's by far the best product i've used for this purpose, and i listen to podcasts in my car all day every day (i do a lot of driving). Apparently 4. 0. 3 was going to have some bluetooth fixes, but i'll have to wait for a future update (and for verizon) before i see any of those, and who knows if they'll address this specific issue? This is so frustrating. I finally found a great product, and now i can't use it.

Oh, and i contacted tunelink, and they saw no problems on their end (naturally - not sure whether to believe them on that one). They said to wait for a bug fix.

Bluetooth Headphones - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I work as a shipper/receiver and i'm allowed to listen to music at work. I primarly listen to tune in pro radio or google music. I'm not a big audiophile so i'm not concerned with sound that much, i just need to find a solution because i've gone through a lot of wired headphones at work as im constantly in and out of a forklift and ripping my phones outta the jack or my ears. I usually keep my phone in my pocket.

Does anyone have any experience with these guys? I've narrowed it down to four choices however i want to be sure they'll work with the phone in my pocket all day. Specifically does anyone have any reviews on either the sports and or freedoms i'm leaning towards these , other options appear to be motorola s10hd or lg sbh 700, any opinion appreciated!

Bluetooth Does Not Work After Update - Samsung Galaxy S2

So the other night i updated my software to 4. 0. 3 kernel: 3. 0. 15-19100xwlp8-cl356487dpi@dell173#3

And i went to use my bluetooth this morning to connect with the computer but the computer just says "no services available" after trying to copy. So after spending an hour or so trying to fix the bluetooth on my computer and failing then tried to get my brother to send me something on blue-tooth on my phone and it didn't work and then i tried to send him something but when i click scan for devices it just doesn't do anything. Also after the update i noticed when i go into a message sometimes it doesn't come up with the predictive text and i have to go out and back in to make it come up. I'm not appreciating this update at all.

Motorola S9-hd Bluetooth Headset Problem With Samsung Galaxy S2

I have a motorola s9-hd bluetooth stereo headset and i'm having lots of trouble using it with my newly acquired samsung galaxy i9100. It pairs and connects without any trouble, but even thought the phone says it's connected for both phone calls and music playback, none works! I can only make it work once out of 5 or 6 attempts, but then if i just let them both sit after some minutes they "lose connection", even though both remain turned on. Sometimes not even un-pairing them and pairing up again works on the first time. It's really annoying, as i had no connection problems whatsoever on my old nokia 5800. Does anyone also have problems with this combo or have it working perfectly?

Bluetooth Headset Voice Input Recognition - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

How do i get the voice input/recognition function works on bluetooth headset? When i connect to my bluetooth headset (blueant q1 v8. 15), and enable the phone audio, the voice input for texting/searching or any other text input will not recognize through my bluetooth headset microphone, instead, it sticks with the microphone from the actual phone. However, when i making a phonecall, the audio and my voice will transfer through the bluetooth headset. It's very strange how the microphone on my bluetooth headset will not work anywhere else except making phone-calls.

Java to print the application to which the pending intents are directed, but most of the times i get the intent description as "android broadcastintent" which does'nt give any useful information.

Send The Audio Via Bluetooth To The Car - Samsung Moment

1. When my car is off, i need the telephone audio to go out the headphone jack.

2. When my car is on, i need the moment to make a bluetooth connection with the car and send the telephone audio to the car.

3. I need to keep the audio cable plugged into the headphone jack 24/7.

It is an extremely long story, so just assume 1, 2, and 3 are true and accept that premise. If the car is on bluetooth is active but there is an audio cable plugged into the headphone jack, audio is sent out the cable and not via bluetooth. So when the car is on, i need to trick the moment into not realizing that there is a audio cable plugged into the headphone jack, so that it will send the audio via bluetooth to the car.

Here's my plan: disconnect the audio jack from the moment. Wire speaker audio to the audio jack. Assume i have a pace smt kit and am comfortable with dealing with surface mount components. From the physical layout, is this do-able?

Samsung Galaxy S Phone Contacts Suddenly Disappeared

Device: samsung galaxy s
Os : android 2. 1

Basically i don't use google account to sync my contacts because the groups thing doesn't work the way i want it. So instead, i use kies, which allow you to sync outlook contact with your phone, which all worked fine. However, last night before going to bed i sent a few sms message and everything was fine, i.e. All contacts were there. But this morning when i work up because of a text message from a strange number, which was actually from a friend of mine, so i thought he has a new number so i tried to update his contacts but when i click on "update existing contact" my address book pops up and is . Empty.

After that, i opened my contacts and nothing is there. I turned on displaying google contacts and its all fine, but when i choose phone contact, absolutely nothing is displayed. I did absolutely nothing last night, and i don't believe i cleared all my contacts while in my sleep (because i don't even know how to do that while im awake). Btw, i have been adding quiet a lots of contacts over the last 2 weeks (since last time i sync with kies) so i really need them back.

Samsung Galaxy S Phone Won't Charge

My charger isn't working anymore. I don't know whats the problem but i went to bell today (bell is a canadian store which sells the phone) and they said it's because i spilled water on the phone, which is why it's not working. Now this could be true because my phone fell and completely came apart at a club and the floor was sticky with booze, but that was last friday; it's been one whole week.

Should i trust the store? Is there anything i can do to fix this? I've tried charging on my laptop as well and that doesn't work either.

Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket - Phone Randomly Shutting Off

I had my 1st skyrocket for almost 2 weeks when i began getting random shutdowns. Sometimes i would have to pull the battery to get it to respond again & other times i would be able to get it to turn back on by pressing the power button for about 30sec. I took the phone back to the at&t shop where they were baffled but replaced the battery because that was the only issue they knew of. After a day or so, it began shutting off again. I returned to the store where they replaced the phone.

I have now had my 2nd phone for 2 days and it randomly shut down again this a. M. I love this phone but i am leary of keeping it in light of these issues and from the problems i have read from other owners on this forum. Has anyone had any luck in solving this issue? . Btw, the battery is charging/draining normally and i have only used the charger that came with the phone.

Samsung Galaxy S - Tried New Firmware Now Phone Won't Start

So i decided to try and upgrade to froyo after i couldn't get the kries reg. Trick to work. I was using [13. 10. 10][cf-root v1. 2] jph jpk jp6 jpm jpa - superuser+busybox+2e, cwm compat! - Xda-developers website to upgrade the kernal? To enable "2e" recovery, apparently what i needed to do to be able to do the firmware upgrade listed on [rom] [froyo] voodoo doctor edition v2. 0 | universal lagfix | cwm recovery - xda-developers.

So anyway i obvioiusly missed a big chunk of information on the basics, and basically i put the phone in download mode "down volume, home, power" then i opened odin and chose the . Tar file i downloaded from the first link, and hit start. After this the phone just sits at the galaxy start screen white letters saying "galaxy s gt0i9000 samsung"

It just sits there won't go any further. So obviously i've flashed it with the wrong firmware (kernal). I can still go into download mode, so i'm guessing there is a way to fix this i'm just not sure how >. <. I've gone into reset mode and hit reset to factory but that obviously doesn't help as it resets it to the last flashed firmware which was bad.

The phone was brought from smartphones, htc, sony ericsson, blackberry, nokia, brodit, hp ipaq, palm - clove technology the details i have from the phone in kries regeditnd the phone's download mode to restore it so i can at least turn it on?
