Samsung Epic 4g - Cut And Paste Certain Things But Not Others On Phone

Hey. I just switched from a black berry bold to my new epic. On my old phone i was able to cut and paste any text (read only and input). On my epic i've figured out how to cut and paste certain things but not others. For example i cannot read an e-mail and then cut and paste something from that e-mail to an input field somewhere else. On the black berry it was as easy as holding down the shift key and using the arrows keys to select the text. This does not seem to be an option with text in received e-mails that are read only.

Samsung Galaxy S - If Root Vibrant Will 2.2 Update Take

I want to root my phone to enable wifi tethering. But! From what i understand the froyo 2. 2 update will allow wifi tethering for our vibarant's. (Can anyone confirm?)Ok, with that said. "If" wifi tethering is availble with the 2. 2 update will i be able to update my rooted phone?The 2. 2 update is also important to me because of the flash 10. 1, so it is definitely a prioirity for me.

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?

Samsung Galaxy S - Epic Unresponsive After Unsecessful Root Attemt / Restart It

I made 2 unsuccessful attempts to root my galaxy s epic. The device is now unresponsive. Only the front lower buttons and a red indicator light are lit (and wont go out). Nothing responds.

The first attempt i made was from this link:
Root samsung galaxy s android 2. 1, 2. 2 on windows, mac os x

I followed the instructions, and the comand screen went through until it stopped at 'your device is now rebooting' . My device was not rebooting, no recovery, nothing was happening. I just closed the cmd window and unplugged the epic. Things were still working ok after that.

The second attempts i made was from this link (thru this forum):
One click root & recovery for the epic 4g! V2. 4. 0 now has clockworkmod! - Xda-developers

I ran the run. Bat again, nothing. I ran the adb.exe. Still nothing, but i believe this is where my trouble began. I closed everything and unplugged the epic.

Then the trouble started. Email stalled when i opened it, but it came back. Then fb stalled when i opened it. It never came back, the whole thing went black and unresponsive.

I just got this thing. I'm totally sick over this. What did i do?!

Also, how do i get the battery out of the epic, and how do i restart it?

Samsung Moment - How To Undo Root For Phone

I have a few questions. I am super new to android, but i have been playing with my moment non-stop since i got it last night (had it flown in next day air). I rooted and put a custom rom on my moment last night. Forgive me if these questions have been answered somewhere else on the forum.

1. How do you undo the root for the moment (unroot)?

2. How do you remove the custom rom and go back to stock 2. 1?

3. Will wifi tethering make sprint charge you? (I'm pretty sure they won't, but
Want to make sure)

4. My phone has network errors a lot, and i have to reboot. Do i have a faulty handset or does this happen to you guys?

5. How do you automatically start wifi when a remembered network is in range?

6. In your opinion, did i make the right choice in buying this phone or is it outdated? Should i have stuck with my blackberry curve 8330 and waited for the epic? (I know it won't get any official updates, but i realized that people are working on an unofficial version of 2. 2)

7. Has sprint said whether or not they will charge the extra $10 a month on the epic?

8. What is a good app that helps save battery?

Root T-mobile Usa Galaxy Vibrant

I finally decided to root my vibrant and have root access. But, all is not going as planned. When i volume up/down/power to load a rom i get an error on a line as it is loading. This happened with 4 roms. The only rom that will take is debusrom_a4, but i still get an error. When, i cant connect to 3g, i can connect to wifi. I can log into market through wifi but i cannot download anything as it says i have no storage space. When i look at the utility manager is reads internal space a zero bytes, but have gigs free on the sd's. I have run out of ideas, short of going back to try to re-root?

Basically when i turn my sgs2 on and enter the pattern lock many force close boxes appear and its impossible to get rid of these and i cannot access anything. I was told this is due to some problem with corrupt files/software or something, and the only way round it is hard reset(factory reset).

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.

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.

Best Protective Phone Cases For Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I have just bought a samsung galaxy nexus in australia and am looking at getting a phone case for it. I've had a bit of an internet search but can't find anything very conclusive on the most decent cases. Basically i'm looking for the best protective cases to minimize the damage impact on my phone in case i drop it. I'm also a little bit of a typical girl and am biased towards good-looking (maybe colorful) cases if possible. Any suggestions would be great.
