Unlock From Samsung Galaxy S2 T-mobile (root)

Couple of days ago i got brand new samsung galaxy s2 gt-i9100. It was on t-mobile network but the seller said it can be unlocked to any network. I bought the phone from him and the same day i took it to a nearby phone shop for the unlock. After the process i saw a new application on my phone - superuser. I know the phone has been rooted which apparently voids the warranty.

The phone acts funky now - when i turn it off the display alternates between the large battery icon in the centre of the screen with 5 white dots below it and an empty battery icon with a yellow warning sign and a thermometer icon overlaid. By the looks of it the battery seems to be overheated but it is at room temperature. The phone can only be turned on if connected to a pc or a power source. I am going to try another battery tomorrow, hopefully it is only that.

If i will reset the phone to factory settings or delete superuser - will the unlock still be there? Or will the phone reject the simcard? I am not sure what to do, if battery replacement won't work then i will not have any other choice but to unroot the phone and send it to samsung. But does it mean that i will have to do the whole unlocking process again or will it be unlocked? Can someone help me please?

Improve Face Unlock - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Is there a limit to how many times improve face unlock will keep improving? I've taken several improved pictures through the day today, and now that i'm back on my couch where i took the very first photo i find the phone didn't recognize me! Do the oldest photos get deleted, so is there a limit to how many photos it's best to take?

Samsung Galaxy S Plus Gt I9001 Network Issue

I have the galaxy s gti 9001 with telfort a dutch provider, when i popped over to the uk i had a full signal strength (all bars up) yet when i tried to phone or sms i got told i didn't have permission to use the network. I had to manually set it to orange then it worked, when i got back to nl the same problem again until i manually set it back to kpn (used by telfort).

I used the same sim card in my wildfire and never had this problem. Question is how to i setup the gt1 9001 to auto connect to a valid network when ever i go to different countries? I have it on roaming data etc.

Orange T-mobile Default Network - Samsung Galaxy S2

I've got a newly purchased samsung galaxy s2 on an orange contract. The network defaults to "orange", as you'd expect, but i've manually changed that to "orange t-mobile" as it makes a big difference in coverage on my journey to work.

When i power-cycled the phone, it reverted back to "orange" on startup. I don't plan to power cycle very often, but just wondered if there was a way of setting a preferred network on the handset instead of having to manually change every time the phone starts? On my old nokia e72, once i'd set to "orange t-mobile" the first time, it stuck even through many power cycles (crappy thing kept losing data connectivity until reset!).

Does Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket Work On T-mobile 3g / 4g Network ?

I just got a new samsung galaxy s2 skyrocket as a gift, it is unlocked and i'm currently using it on the tmobile network. The problem is that i can't access the 3g or the 4g and it's just using the edge for data access. Which is sad for such a powerful phone. I read around and find out that this phone does not support the tmobile band 1700/2100. Is that true? And if so, is there a way to change the software or hardware of the phone so i can receive and send on these frequencies? If not, i'll just sell it and buy a phone compatible with tmobile stupid network frequency.

Ics - Roaming Indication On Home Network - Samsung Galaxy S2

Recently upgraded my galaxy s2 to ics using a guide at cnet.co.uk. 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?

Mobile Network Signal Bar In Battery Stats - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Has anyone been able to figure out what the different colors in the mobile network signal bar in battery stats detail mean? (The one that shows the large chart of your battery draining over time and has mobile network signal, gps, screen, and awake usage bars under it). I see dark green, light yellow, dark yellow, and red on mine. Based on my usage the last 5 hours our so i'm guessing the following:

Red = no signal
Dark green = 4g
Light yellow = 3g
Dark yellow = no idea, maybe 1g?

Does anyone else have any additional colors, or idea what these mean? I'm just taking guesses here.

Issue: At&t Network Shows No Signal In A Stadium - Galaxy Nexus

This has happened multiple times, so i'm quite sure it's not a fluke. When i go to a stadium, my phone works and it has full signal. However, once the stadium fills up with 40, 000 people, my phone no longer works. No network whatsoever. You'd say it's a network overload issue, but i doubt it: i'm using at&t, and other people sitting near me are also on at&t. They are surfing and texting away, but my phone is basically a brick. So i want to know why this is. Thoughts?

How hard is it to unlock the captivate. I live an hour from the u. S border in canada and was thinking of taking a drive to pick one up. I'm with rogers which is the same as at&t.

Htc Desire - How Easy Is It To Get Back To Default

So i have decided to root. I was going to goldcard/ruu to debrand my orange uk desire but i am a tinkerer and would love to flash rooted roms etc. Before i start i have a few questions;

1. Radio firmware: this is the biggie for me - i know that doing any sort of rom change you are likely to run into issues with the radio, this seems especially true on orange ones. So without having to unlock (it may sound cheap, but i haven't been paid for 2 months ) is there a way to avoid potential simlocks? Ie can i keep the radio version that is currently only my phone (just updated to froyo).

2. I know you can't get ota updates with rooted roms, but i like to keep up to date. I assume the guys making the roms are coming out with new ones all the time so is it quite easy to flash a new rom and be on your way?

3. Titanium backup and nandroid - i have seen people saying to use these for backups when you root. As far as i can tell titanium backup is good for settings etc, and nandroid is good for getting all your apps back, right? They both seem to require root access, so that surely means i can't backup all my settings before i root?

4. How easy is it to get back to default?

5. Which rom? I have seen many singing the praises of defrost. Is this pretty close to stock rom?

6. Anything you suggest i do/install when i am rooted? Anything especially cool .

I have seen many guides about, this in particular looks pretty damn easy to follow. Though the latest comments seem to be people having trouble now that they are on froyo and not eclaire. Also i got my phone early april, so i assume the screen is amoled, it doesn't seem to suffer from backlight bleed and its black as black on black backgrounds.

Sprint Htc Hero - Easy Way To List My Apps

Just wanted to see if there was either a straightforward way or an actual app that would allow me to, say, generate a list of all my installed apps so that i could keep them in case i needed to re-download them (factory reset, etc).

Seems simple enough.

Nother think i'd like to see would be more of a shopping cart and/or wish list set up in the market. Ever been looking for one app and ran across 2 other kick ass ones. Or some that you'd at least like to look into. But knew would completely distract you from the original app you were looking for? I'd like to be able to "tag" an app as something i'd like to look into later.

Anyway, please let me know if there's an easy way to produce a list of all the apps.
