T-mobile Mytouch 3g Issues

My wife and i upgraded out cell phones to the t-mobile mytouch 3g phones. We received them on the same day and since have been having all sorts of what i can only assume are os issues. Maybe some of you have had the same issues or maybe you can even tell me how to prevent the issues from happening with an os patch or fix of some sorts.

The issues are happening to both phones and are the following:

1. Sd card - we sometimes have a message come up stating that there is no sd card in the phone, or that the sd card is blank when both statements are false.

2. Photos - many times, photos that i just took show up one second (in the gallery) and then dont show up at all the next.

3. Camera - when starting up either the photo or video cameras, a message will come up stating to insert an sd card, when the card is already inserted.

Those are the big three issues that we've been having, and they all revolve around the sd card. The kicker here though, is that the card seems to be working just fine after i restart the phone completely (turn off then on). It only works fine for a couple hours though, and then reverts to the above. I've taken the sd card out to look for possible damage and there is none. I've made sure there was no dust between the connections, then reassemble the phone only to have the same issues.

It's very frustrating, and before you say that it's probably the sd card. It's happening to both my wife's and my cell phone. The sd cards are the ones that came with the phone, and we don't beat the crap out of your cell phones. They are in practically new condition, as we received them new only a couple months ago. Any ideas on what could be causing this?

Review On Phantomskinz For Mytouch 4g

A quick review on the phantomskinz matte full body kit for the mytouch 4g. I had a regular "ultra clear" skin on my g1 way back when i first got my g1 and it managed to keep my phone in new condition for over a year with 1 skin and about half a year with the other. Too bad the skin didn't make the phone water proof or my g1 would've survived the accident it had . So when i saw that phantomskinz was having a black friday sale i didnt hesitate to buy a skin for the mytouch (even though i didnt even have the phone yet. ) Read more at the forum.

I Want To Downgrade The Firmware Back To 1.6 On Mytouch 3g

Mytouch 3g was adequate before the update but i was told that mobile hotspot was a feature in the 2. 2 update so i converted. Unfortunately now, my phone is incredibly slow, sluggish, crashes, etc since the update. Is there a way to downgrade the firmware back to 1. 6? I don't even mind losing the new features since we got screwed on the mobile hotspot thing anyway.

Ota Gingerbread Update Download Link For T-mobile Mytouch 4g

This is for those who have not gotten the over-the-air gingerbread update for their mytouch 4g. First, download the file named from and place it on the root of your sd card (meaning not in any folders, just dropped onto the sd card). Then, turn your phone off. Do a battery pull, or turn off "fast boot". Hold down the power button while holding down the "volume down" button. This will boot into your bootloader, where you can select "apply". Follow on-screen instructions, and enjoy the official gingerbread on your mytouch 4g.

Disclaimer: even upon successful install, you will lose your settings, apps, and possibly contacts (depending on how you have them stored). I am not responsible for your device if this does not work for you. Also, neither is the original file host. This is not my file, or website. I have had no contact with the original host. I took a shot in the dark, said "screw it" and tried the update. I did successfully update using this file.

This file will update your mytouch 4g (htc glacier) to:

Android version: 2. 3. 4
Htc sense version: 2. 1
Software number: 2. 19. 531. 1
Kernel version: 2. 6. 35. 10-g225de41
Htc-kernel@and18-2 #1
Baseband version: 12. 58. 60. 25u_26. 11. 04. 03_m
Build number: 2. 19. 531. 1 cl95282 release-keys

Difference Between Invalidate() And Postinvalidate()

What is the difference between invalidate() and postinvalidate(), except the obvious (i know that postinvalidate post an invalidate- request on the ui-thread, while a call to invalidate() invalidates the view immediately). I've done a viewgroup with some scrolling- animations, and to redraw the view from computescroll(), i needed to call postinvalidate(), the regular invalidate() does not redraw the screen. This is how it's done in scrollview too, so why isn't the screen redrawn when i call invalidate() from computescroll?

Difference Between 2 Ways To Start An Activity

I have seen the following two examples of starting activities in android:

Example 1


Example 2


It seems the obvious difference between the two examples is that you attach the logic of how an activity is created to the implementation of the activity. Are there any other key differences? (e.g. Is the calling activity told to wait until the called activity finishes in one case, but not in the other, etc. )

What's Difference Between Application And Widget

I've had my android (droid incredible) for about a month now and just starting to get into looking through good apps. I was looking at the different calendar apps because the stock app isn't that great. One thread on best calendar apps talks about pure calendar. When i go onto the android market i see a couple of widgets for pure calendar. So what's the difference between an application and a widget?

How To Speed Up Restlet When Using Odata

I am attempting to use restlet for android to query an odata data source. However, i am not impressed with its performance in both the emulator as well on a real device. I have the requests made in a wrapper asynctask to make the ui responsive but it still takes over 1 minute to finally return the objects.

I get plenty of these in the logcat window: 10-04 18:20:41. 667: debug/dalvikvm(278): gc freed 7872 objects / 523928 bytes in 279ms

What can i do to speed up the queries?

Activity Lifecycle Difference Between Device And Emulator

I recently noticed there is a difference in behavior between an actual device (htc magic in my case) and the emulator. What i noticed is that in the device when another activity is started via startactivity(), the calling activity does not get destroyed. In the emulator, the calling activity is paused, and right after the new activity is resumed, the calling activity is destroyed.

Does anyone know if these behaviors can exist in any device or the emulator behavior is local to it? I thought the emulator is supposed to behave like an actual device since the codebase are the same? Btw, both are using adroid 1. 5.

If this topic is already present in the discussions, sorry for the duplicate and kindly point me to the right direction.

Ipad Vs Android - Comparison / Consistency / Difference

Please keep in mind that the content herein is my opinion, my first android device was the htc g1/dream, purchased on release day, and i've been in love with android ever since. But, lately it seems the love affair is turning sour. Why? Allow me to explain. When i turned on my htc g1 android phone for the first time i was immediately greeted with a beautiful user interface - the buttons, the notification bar, the gradients, it was all so beautiful. I've owned several android devices spanning coby, htc, lg, motorola, samsung and am currently on the htc evo view 4g tablet. During my android journey i had the honor of running cupcake, donut, eclair, froyo, gingerbread and, finally, honeycomb. The user interfaces from cupcake through froyo were beautiful - their gradients, buttons, window animations were eye candy in every sense of the phrase.

Gingerbread brought a change, though, one that i found disappointing. The gradients and colors that i had fallen in love with were replaced with dark backgrounds and green highlights. Reminded me of something i had created decades ago with an old version of ms paint when i was just learning how to theme software. Honeycomb replaced the green highlights with blues but the dark "hacker" feel of the ui is still there. Honeycomb caused a further degradation in the ui due to inconsistent menu button placement.

Google seems to have continued this ui trend with ice cream sandwich (android 4. 0), which is simply unprofessional and somewhat painful viewing on a device that we have to stare at for the entirely of its use. What happened? The android 1. 0 ui is by far more beautiful than that of android 4. 0. I've never owned an apple product, and never had much love for apple, but i spent an hour on an ipad today. Below are just some of the differences i found: read full post at the forum.

Difference Between Sqlite On Htc Hero (1.5) And Nexus One (fr72)

Same data, same code, but different results on these two devices. On the nexus one, the (inner join) query runs (first call to cursor. Movetonext()) after a fraction of a second but on the hero it just hangs. I haven't been able to reduce the scenario to something simple yet, but it seems to involve using or within an on clause. Anyone know why there might be a difference on these two devices?
