App To Save Home Screen - Wifi Is On Constantly - Samsung Galaxy S2

I have some questions and would be grateful if someone could let me have an answer or two: -

1. I saw a home screen recently which had a shortcut on it to mobile networks/use packet data. How was this done/what program was used to create it etc?

2. When i first got my phone i configured the phone to only switch on wifi when the screen was active. For the life of me i do not know how i did this. Recently this setting has been lost and the wifi is on constantly. When i am at home i would like it to switch off when the screen goes off and comes on when active. The only thing i can find is "wifi sleep policy, which i have configured to "when screen turns off". However after my screen switches off and i turn it back on, i do not see any signs of it having been off - ie; i do not see it switching back on like it used to do, by observing the top notifications bar. This is a drain on my battery - yesterday i noticed that it had been on all the time i was at work - over 10 hours - and the battery reduced by 50%, which is not what it used to do. In wifi settings, even though i am locked on to my home wifi, the phone is constantly scanning away every few seconds - i would like it to stop doing this when connected. Any thoughts etc please?

3. Is there a program out there which can save your home screens/application screens? Yes i know i can restore my phone using cpw/titanium backup but i only want to restore my home screens after diddling about with new themes etc. I usually always prefer the look and feel of my existing ones but am getting fed up with restoring manually and titanium backup doesn't appear to do this - it wants to restore all my previous apps etc. Again some help would be appreciated.

4. In cpw/titanium backup how do i start to freeze a program? I would like to experiment with freezing wifi sharing but not sure how to do this exactly ie; what exactly do i do? - The opening screens are not that user friendly. Fwiw i am on 2. 3. 4 cpw (waiting patiently for an upgrade via kies) and cf-1 kernel (i think).

Possible To Detect Which Grid Sections Used By Widgets On Home Screen

My understanding is that any of the available home screen spaces are compromised of a grid view. These slots in the grid view can contain a simple shortcut to a program or/and a single widgets can take up multiple rows or columns of the grid (e.g picture frame generally takes up one 2 columns & 3 rows)

Is there a way to detect which grid blocks are occupied on the home screen and what is available and how big of a block is available? There must be since sometimes when trying to add a widget it will tell you, "no space on this home screen. "

Wifi Issue After Updated To 4.0.3 - Samsung Galaxy S2

I have a uk sim free galaxy s2 which i recently updated to ofw 4. 0. 3. In 2. 3. 4 when i switched from mobile internet to wifi, it used to connect instantly to my home wifi. But in 4. 0. 3. It takes ages to authenticate etc, and sometimes takes around 30 seconds to a minute to actually connect? This happens each time i try to connect to my home internet when i come in. Is there a fix for this?

Can't Set Samsung Galaxy S2 As Wifi Hotspot

I was out of the house with my laptop the other day and thought i'd see if i could set up wireless access to the net through my galaxy s2. I think i turned it on through the "portable wi-fi hotspot settings" option and the laptop found the signal but wouldn't connect for some reason! Is it a setting i have missed or is it something to do with the carrier - i'm on three but not the "all you can eat data" tariff! Can you only do this with certain carriers or should it work on any?

Issue: Samsung Galaxy S I9003 Cannot Connect To Wifi

I used to have a samsung galaxy s i9000, it was replaced when i lost it recently by a samsung galaxy scd i9003 (pretty sure thats the name). Other than being pretty miffed by the dire lack of memory and slightly reduced spec, my main problem is that the phone will not detect to my personal wifi, where the old one could detect and connect with no problems. I do not currently have access to the broadband router page, as i live in rented accommodation and it is controlled by the landlord.

I cannot understand why, when both have the same wireless receiver and wifi set up, one phone can see and connect to the wifi with no problem, and yet the new one cant detect it. Its a bt home hub that has been there for over a year. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cannot Remove Home Screens On Samsung Galaxy S2

My old galaxy s2 on orange uk was perfect, i could delete unused home screens and i customized it exactly how i wanted it. However today i had to have my phone replaced under warranty as the touch screen became unresponsive in places. The phone they have sent me obv has different software on it because i don't like it and i cant customize it!

My first problem is that i never had on my old phone was i now have 5 home screens and a orange scroll bar across the bottom. I don't use widgets or any of that crap, i use 1 home screen with 4 icons on and everything else is organized in folders in the app screen. However i cant remove them. If i hold them down all i get is a "add to homescren" window with the following listed:

Orange widgets
Orange shortcuts
Android widgets
Android shortcuts

If i press the menu button on said screens, i get

All programs
Add to homescreen

By default it also opens straight to the 3rd (middle) screen of the 5. I have no trash bin to drag them down to like my previous phone. Somebody please help me and tell me how to get rid of them?

Samsung Galaxy S (vibrant) Home Key Issue

It was too good to be true. A perfectly working phone. So i started having the issue where the home key doesn't register alot of times, and apparently its a known issue over the net. Many people are having this same issue where the home key doesn't work properly. Every other key is perfect, but the home key doesn't listen. I wonder if samsung will recall it, or could this be fixed with a firmware update? Or is it hardware? That's why i should have bought from t-mobile so i dont have to deal with wirefly.

Ics - Roaming Indication On Home Network - Samsung Galaxy S2

Recently upgraded my galaxy s2 to ics using a guide at All appears to work fine apart from one thing - sat at home, my signal indicator shows that i am roaming and a warning notification reports "you have lost data connectivity because you left your home network with data roaming turned off". To clarify, i'm at home, a three network customer and never saw the roaming indicator at anytime before in the uk. I also have data roaming turned off for the usual obvious reasons. Has anyone encountered this and does anyone have any ideas how i can remedy this situation?

Samsung Galaxy S - Unable To Launch Via Vol Up+home+power

I'm unable to launch the via vol up+home+power so i attempted via adb and i receive the status 7 error. After that failed i figured i'd check to see if i could get 2. 2 for my phone. Kies tells me there's a firmware upgrade to i897xxx7 (sorry forget the version name). I attempt to upgrade it however kies crashes at the same point each time. I then tried on my 2nd pc and the same problem happened. I tried to update kies on both however i ended up doing a full reinstall. Kies now does not recognize my phone on both computers yet windows (32b xp) does. Also reinstalled usb drivers. *So to sum it up, i cannot root, cannot get kies to recognize my phone, and cannot upgrade the firmware.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 - Wifi Won't Work At Home / What To Do

I got this phone yesterday, and everything's been working great except for wifi.

I have wifi at home, and the phone is able to connect to it (obtain an ip address, show signal strength, etc. ), But internet is not available.

I cannot browse or use the market application because it's not really connected to the internet.

I only have this problem at home, however. Wifi on my x10 works great everywhere else.

My brother's phone and both of our laptops are able to access wifi at home, so i'm thinking it's a settings problem on my phone?

Flashing Samsung Epic To Cricket With Wifi

I'm buying a samsung epic 4g and want to get it flashed to my cricket account and i have some questions about wifi-tethering and mms. First, i am new to the android world so please forgive my ignorance in advance. Id like to enable the free wifi-tether option on my epic so i can connect my laptop to the internet via the phones wifi-hotspot capability. As i understand it, this feature is disabled in this phone by default with cricket. What is the best/easiest method for enabling free wifi-tether with cricket, and should i do this before or after i have cricket flash the phone to their system?

I'd also like to enable mms messaging as i've heard others have done with their epic and cricket, but have no idea how to do this. How is this done? Again, should this be done before or after the flash to cricket?

My concern is that i'll mess up the cricket flash by rooting the phone and enabling the free wifi-tether. Is this a possibility? I'm just too unfamiliar with how it all works so any clarification would be greatly appreciated. Fyi, i am a coder and have fairly decent knowledge of high-end programming so understanding the code and technical details shouldn't be an issue. *
