Htc Incredible - Hearing Noise Like Two Screws Tapping Together When Set Phone Down / Stop It


My phone is in my pocket often as i leave my desk at work; no need to leave my gem out in the open alone.

When i set the phone down on hard surfaces, i can hear a bit of a noise almost like two screws tapping together. What i think is, it may be the device that makes the phone vibrate.

My real question is if i can feel the phone hitting against my leg as i walk around, is that going to break anything overtime? Or did that create this rogue noise i hear when i set the phone down? Leaning towards paranoia, but wanted to see what i could get!

Htc Incredible - Unrevoked Forever Tool To Set Your Android Phone's Security Level To S-off

Just got released like 15 minutes ago. Anyone try it yet!?

Public:forever [rootwiki]

Unrevoked forever is a tool to set your android phone's security level to s-off. The security level is a flag stored on the radio; when the flag is s-off, the bootloader (hboot) will no longer check the signatures of firmware images before flashing them. This allows custom firmware images to be uploaded, including unsigned boot, recovery, splash1, and hboot images (as well as official images that have been modified).

Htc Evo 4g - Would Sprint Repair Center Be Able To Tighten Screws

I have some moderate light leakage coming out between the end of the "display slab" and the bezel and after reading on other topics pertaining to this i learned there are two hex screws that connect the panels. Do you believe a sprint location would be able to help with this? Anyone have any experience with similar issues (with any phone?). Thank you!

Samsung Behold 2 - Hearing Buzzing Sound Inside Phone / Get Rid Of It

I have an unlocked samsung behold ii on at&t and i was just wondering if anyone else has noticed a buzzing sound when they use stuff on twiz. Whenever i click on any of the 4 buttons on the bottom (dialer, contacts, web, or quicklist), click anything in the quicklist, or send a text using the stock samsung messaging, i hear a small buzzing sound coming from inside the phone. Something similar to the sound of a hard drive reading. I thought it might be the processor working extra hard to use the stuff samsung put on it or something. Anyone else hearing it? The phone is only a couple months old.

Htc Incredible - Keep Getting Random Vibrations / Stop Them

I keep having random vibrations every few minutes, usually 2 quick short vibrations but sometimes there are 3-4. There are no visual alerts to go along with the vibrations and i am pretty confused. It has been doing this for about 24 hours now at least.

I tried disabling many of my widgets/apps that i know cause vibrations but no results yet. I have also restarted the phone and it seems the vibrations start right away after reboot (but that could be a start-up vibration if there is one). Anyone have any ideas or know how i could create a log of apps calling the vibration feature?

Htc Incredible - Notification Sounds Changing By Themself / Stop Them

Anyone have a problem with notification sounds changing on their own? It seems that every once in a while my notifications will switch and its always to the same songs by don henley and blind guardian (lol). No one else is doing it and i havent been able to pinpoint a certain app or update that has caused this. My gmail notifications, handcent, and k-9 notifications have all changed at some point to songs from my sd card. I have ringdroid, lite profiles, and rings extended installed.

Htc Incredible - Set Gmail Invites To Be Private By Default On Dinc

Is there a way to set gmail invites to be private by default? Google help says that if your calendar is set to private (mine is) then all invites will be private too. That is not the case though - when my husband receives an invite in outlook and he has to manually change it to private. So short of using my pc for all invites (where i can manually set them to private each time) is there a way to do this on the dinc?

Htc Incredible - Set A Default Group Like "my Contacts" (on Google)

I spent a nice amount of time on google sorting my contacts by groups so it's neat and being i dont have a landline i have numbers in there that i dont ever call but i need to kepp them. And i know smart dial searches everyone if they are in a group or not.

My question is: is there a way to set a default group like "my contacts" (on google) when you go into your contacts insteal of "all contacts" (on the incredible)?

On google all the people who are in my contacts just fall under "all" even google considers it a "group"

Or maybe just put all of them in a new group and set it to default to that group?

Removing System Notifications Audio Noise That Annoy Me - Samsung Epic 4g

I finally took the plunge and rooted my epic. It is great now that i can delete all of the useless scheisse on the phone. Now what i would like to do it remove a couple of the system notifications that annoy me. The first one is the noise it makes whenever you move in and out of service. I am guessing the audio file for it is in /system/media/audio but after that i am not sure which file it is. Does anybody know what it is? And can i just delete the audio file or do i need to replace it with a blank audio file?

The second one is the battery full unplug charger bs. Is this one possible to remove? I thought i found once that if you are rooted you can but i cannot find anything on it at right now. Thanks for any help.

Htc Evo 4g - Phone Dials Then Nothing Happens / Stop It

I left my iphone because i hated whenever i dialed and got an immediate call failure. It wouldn't even attempt to dial out. Now i have my evo, and it dials out all the time, but about 5% of the time, i don't hear the ringing or the other end. I've had it happen where the person on the other line is frustrated with me because they think i'm prank calling to them.

Has this happened to anyone else? Dial out but nothing in the ear piece? If so, did you find a fix?

Htc Droid Eris - Phone Answers Calls In Pocket / Stop It To Do So

There are a couple threads already on this issue but they are old and dont seem to address the exact issue i am having.

The problem i am constantly having with my eris is that it tends to answer call by itself while in my pocket. This tends to happen while i am either on a mower or motorcycle and cant hear the phone ringing. It picks up by itself and its not until later that i find out someone called and my phone answered.

Is there any way i can change the process for picking up a call? Ideally i would like so that i have to press the actual hard green call button to pick up a call or have some sort of double lock on the screen.

Htc Desire - Phone Makes Strange Sounds Each Time Clap Upper Part On Table / Stop It To Do So

I've recently bought htc desire and have discovered that the phone makes a "sound" each time i clap the upper part on the table (or clap it on fingers) the sound is hard to describe, it's like the inner parts in that particular area are not that sturdy or firmly assembled.

The bottom part of the phone is completely firm and solid. I'm just wondering if the upper part is not supposed to be as firm as the bottom.

Is anybody else experiencing this?
