Samsung Moment - Multiple Sd Cards As Backup


After reading about rooting my moment, it seems most changes are made to files on the sd card.
I have the original sd card that came with the phone and i use a larger capacity card in the phone. Question is, if i had to take the phone to sprint after rooting, could i just put the original card in the phone and recover to factory? Or is it more complicated than that?

Basically, stock phone on the original sd card and my rooted phone on the other card.

Edit: found the major error in my thinking.

How To Retrieve Paths To Multiple Sd Cards - Internal & External

I ran into a seemingly simple issue to which i cannot find an answer. The application i am working on needs to read/write data from/to the sd card. All the resourcess are located in a folder rigth on the root of the sd card. To obtain the absolute path to my resources directory.

I wrote something like this:

Code:.

Which results into something like:

Code:.

This works just fine for most devices. However, there is the samsung galaxy s which has 2 sd cards, one internal, and one external. Using the code above, i get the path to the internal sd card. The path to the external card is "/sdcard/sd/" (where i belive "sd" is just the mount point).

Is there any api that i don't find which returns a list of paths to multiple sd cards (if available). Or is there any other way to scan both cards for the existence of my resources folder without hardcoding it myself. Note that changing the location of the resources dir is not an option.

Samsung Moment - Evo Vs Moment / Out Of Range Service Beeps

I am eligible to upgrade, but i want to get some opinions before i decide. I will not purchase or pre-order the evo either before it has a few weeks to settle in and also monitoring others experiences. My concern is that some of my gripes with the moment my not be corrected or addressed with htc either.

- Anyone here have htc experience as far as durability and dependability vs samsung moment. Physically and structurally to me, the moment has been great, want the same from evo/htc

- Gps, my moment sucks, what experiences have others had with comparable htc phones vs say blackberry which works wonderfully for us

- Out of range service beeps, these on htc phones or just the moment

- Cdma lockups, on my moment they are more recurring now with 2. 1 than before. Is there any reports of this with the htc phones

Hate not having a keyboard (evo), but these things actually are distractive enough for me to consider a replacement.

I have a t-mobile galaxy s t-959 and this is the first time i have ever had a smart phone.

I found out how to have all my new pics stored on the sd card but how do i move all my pics from internal storage to the new sd card? Step by step i am not very tech wise.

I just got my new phone and i have a few quick questions. There's no manual (just a quick start guide) or cd in the box. Is this normal? There is a cover over the usb port but not over the 3. 5mm headset jack ( wouldn't they have one in case theres a drop of rain)?

(The guy in the store zipped right through the screen and i couldn't see)can i set a time that it checks email? I don't want it ringing all night. My old phone was set to check from 9am to 10pm. Can i do that with this phone?What is the best free office document editing software?How do i access a "task manager"? Alls i can seem to find is all the processes running. I just want a simple list of programs running so i can switch back and forth. Is this builtin? I could do it at the store just the new phone out of the box. I know i asked more than a few questions but thought these were good ones to start with.

Issue: Multiple Recipients Text Message - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

On my droid 3 (gingerbread 2. 3) my incoming and outgoing texts were easy to tell if it was sent to multiple recipients. If it was sent to three people, when i went to my list of text messages, i could open the newly received text and see who it was sent to. And if i replied to it, it would reply to all by default. I liked this.

I just received a multiple-recipient message from my friend, but i had no idea it was also sent to my other friend too, without going to the "message details" from the settings menu. And when i reply to the one who sent it, it doesn't go to all.

Is there a way to fix this to tell who it was sent to, and to reply to all? Phone is galaxy nexus with ice cream sandwich 4. 0. 2.

Samsung Moment - Is Screen Too Small

I am one of the lurkers who is considering getting a moment over the evo and epic because of costs. However, i'm worried i'm going to hate the smaller screen. It is still a good screen, but 3. 2 inches or whatever it is is pretty small for a smartphone. I have the htc touch pro2 right now, and it's ok, thank god for htc and touchflow. Anyway it's time to get android in october.

I wouldn't even consider the intercept because it's rev. 0. So, is the screen too small? How often do the data lock ups happen? I've been to 2 or 3 different sprint stores and neither moment worked when i went to play with it, after a reboot, data worked. So i'm assuming that was the issue on those phones. Is an android 2. 2 custom rom going be done for this phone?I see the wifi tether is a go so that is good. Has anyone purchased and extra battery and charger? As in a charger that you just snap the battery into while you use the other one in the phone? Is there one that you recommend? Is the battery life really that bad?

Samsung Moment - How To Forward Message

Had this phone a couple weeks now and still haven't figured out some of it. Text messaging: how do you forward a message? How do you send a text or forward it to multiple contacts?Is there any way to save or "lock" a text message? Picture mail:how do you forward a picture message?Is there a way to "upload" or save a picture that you receive as picture mail?

General:how can you copy and paste a link or text into a text message or e-mail? How can you "refresh" a page in the browser? Example - refreshing a "live" game internet broadcast like on espn or cbs. I have more - but that'll do for now.

Log From A Samsung Moment User

If you have a samsung moment and have adb working for it, would you mind downloading deadly chambers demo off the android market and running it with the log up for me?I'm getting reports of it "not opening" but no additional details. Just the crash log would help tremendously. I think all you need to do is install and try to play the game.

I can return the favor with an evo, tattoo, g1, n1, archos 5 or droid.

Samsung Moment - Camera Driver All Messed Up In 2.1 / What To Do

Google goggles is nearly unusable because if i try to use the 'crop' feature, it misplaces it due to some bug in the camera driver and/or app. The visible area for taking a pic is not as large as the actual resolution, so it's like the viewfinder only sees the upper left 3/4 of what you're taking a pic of.

Very annoying. I'm going to ask sprint to give me a chance to upgrade my phone early in light of all the issues this phone has had. I'm sure some of you aren't as agitated as me or as picky as i am, but i have pretty much had it with this phone. I shouldn't have to learn to get around quirks and bugs or have to use root access for full functionality. It's ridiculous. All this time waiting for the 2. 1 update, and they not only didn't get it right, but they cut out features.

Samsung Moment - 2.1 Rebooting During Phone Calls / What To Do

I hate to make a new thread for this, but i just wanted to throw this out there. If your phone is rebooting during phone calls try turning off bluetooth.

I have read many reports about 2. 1 rebooting during phonecalls (suspected to be caused by using jit). Mine had not rebooted during a phone call until a few hours ago when i arrived somewhere after a short drive. After i got out of my car my phone repeatedly and without fail (4 times) my phone continued to reboot every time i tried to make or receive a phone call. I thought about what i might have done to phone in the pat hour to make it act this way. Then i remembered that i had paired my bluetooth and left bluetooth unpaired but still running on my phone. I turned it off and was able to make a receive calls.

Granted, i still get an occasional reboot from normal use. But at least i can make calls again

Samsung Moment - Not Able To Add Contacts Through Phone / What To Do

Sort of. I recently updated to 2. 1. Whenever i add a contact into the phone it says it is saved however it does not show up in the contacts list. I then have to physically go to gmail and move the newly stored contact over to "my contacts". Only then does the contact show up in my contact list on the phone.

This can be a real pain since i add people to my contacts almost daily and need to talk to them that same day. I can search under contacts and find their name and number through the phone that way, but it still wont show under contacts until i move it through gmail.

Has anyone else seen this issue before? If so is there a setting that i am missing that would allow me to add and view newly added contacts on my phone as soon as i add them?

Samsung Moment - No More Notification Vibrations / Fix It

I've had this strange thing happen to me on with every new firmware and rom that i've installed. Notification vibrations for e-mail, etc. , Work for a little while, and then they just stop working. What's strange is that after i install a new firmware, vibrations work fine and just stop again.

Handcentsms has a "test notifications" feature that i can use to confirm the vibrations. When vibrations are working, "test notification" vibrates the phone just like it should, and when the vibrations stop working, "test notifications" doesn't make the phone vibrate either. So. There's consistency there, i guess.

Anyone else seen this? Anyone else seen this and have a fix?
