Samsung Galaxy Ace - Broken Screen - Is There A Home Fix ?

My girlfriend has done this to her brand new (2wk old) ace, is this something i could try and fix through the laptop, or is it going to need a new screen and can i do it? Or does it need to go to a shop? The touchscreen is ok, it looks the lcd screen behind has gone funny. It still makes startup noises as usual, just no display.

Samsung Galaxy Ace Blank Screen (gt-s5830d)

My friend, the owner of this phone, came to school today and the screen was blank and the phone was unusable. When the lock button is pressed, the screen lights up black, and the buttons light up, which suggests that the phone is still thinking. I tried getting recovery mode (home+volume down+power) but it still had no image on the screen. I have no idea what he did to the phone. Any ideas?

3g Turn Off When Phone Screen Is Locked - Samsung Galaxy Ace

I have a samsung galaxy ace. I have turned on 3g and it is working but as soon as my screen locks it goes off and i do not receive emails or whatsapp messages. When i pick up my phone and unlock the screen, the 3g symbol is not there but a few seconds later it appears and my emails and whatsapp messages come through. This is very annoying i want my 3g to be on all the time and emails and messages to come through immediately without me having to touch my phone. Can anyone help?

I have had the phone for 2 weeks and 3g was working fine until yesterday. I started using wifi for the first time yesterday at the office and i noticed this problem with the 3g yesterday evening. I definitely have my 3g turned on. As it works but only when the screen is unlocked.

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).

Samsung Galaxy Ace And Microsoft Activesync

Currently i have an htc touch using windows mobile v. 6 but it's time to upgrade to something better. I'm very tempted by the galaxy ace as it seems to offer what i need in a phone except that it's android not windows mobile which is where my question comes in.

I have activesync already installed locally on my work pc so that my calendar, tasks etc (not email - i have no intention of having my work emails pop up on my phone) sync across when i'm connected via usb (not an over-the-air set up).

This works great for me and i've googled whether activesync can be used with android and apparently it can, but all of the posts refer to exchange activesync - is this different to a local installation of the software?

If it is; when i buy my new phone and i plug it in can i simply set it up as a new device for as to sync or do i have to do something like the complicated hotmail to outlook set up that i read about in razzmatazz's post on the subject? As auto detects my current phone when plugged into usb and syncs my calendar, tasks and contacts from outlook which is what i am hoping it will do to my android, otherwise i'm stuck with buying another wm device which i don't want to do.

How Do I Restore Stock Apps On Samsung Galaxy Ace?

I've got gt-s5830 phone running 2. 3. 3. So far the phone is working perfect. I was messing around the other and deleted some stock apps by error. I used ti backup for this. I would like to restore a couple of them back, so i used the restore function in ti backup, but for some reason it did not work. Did not give any errors, just rebooted without the app being restored.

Anyway, i believe i have 2 options.

1). Flash 2. 3. 3 which i found - droidangel. Blogspot.com/2011/05/samsung-galaxy-ace-s5830-original-stock.html

2) upgrade to 2. 3. 5 which is also located at the above page. But i am not sure what 2. 3. 5 would be best to use. I'm in the uk, using a vf contract with a unlocked phone.

I have no issues on flashing, but i don't want to flash using the wrong rom and messing it all up.

Low Battery Warning Notification At About 35% - Samsung Galaxy Ace

I've tried to find some more information about this, haven't found it yet. When the battery has still about 35% of capacity left (at least when i look at the battery symbol), i'm already getting a notification that i should charge up. Apart from that, my battery is functioning normally. Anyone familiar with this? Could it be that default battery symbol is giving incorrect information?

I am pretty new to android and have a couple of questions:

1. Is it possible to drag and drop a ui widget from one activity to another activity?

2. Does android support multiple non fullscreen applications running active concurently  (say a browser and phone screen next to each other)?

3. Is it possible to customize the home screen instead of going with android default home screen? If so, can we change the layout and widgets in that screen completely?

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
Folders
Wallpapers

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

All programs
Add to homescreen
Wallpaper
Search
Notifications
Settings

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?

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?
