Samsung Epic 4g - Custom Theme - Back To Factory

Uninstalled the custom theme and the other progam that makes it run. That put it back to factory. Then i was doing other things and tried to go back to home, and it made me choose which action to take to get there. I chose "android" and told it to use this by default.

Well, apparently, this takes it back to like the vanilla android, i guess? I don't like it. That was half the reason i hated the custom theme because it ran things like vanilla andriod.

I must be the only person that prefers this, but please help me get back to factory.

Display Settings For Background And Text - Samsung Galaxy S2

I do my like my samsung galaxy sii very much. But being a long time iphone user one of things i loved on the iphone was the basic display protocol is dark text on a light background, and i much prefer this to the light (white) text on a dark background that all android phones seem to have. On the iphone navigating from screen to screen everything was on a light background so visually it was very easy on my eyes (iphone did have an option to reverse this)

On my samsung galaxy sii i'm talking specifically about the applications section (has black background), or in settings, the background is always black, and just generally navigating around through emails or messaging, the backgrounds are always black and/or very dark. For example when in an actual email the background is white and the text is dark, which is great, but when you're in the screen just before this, which lists all your emails, everything is very dark.

I'm told this is standard in the android operating system, and not a samsung galaxy issue, so it cannot be changed. Is this true? If i can change it, how do i do so, and is it an easy fix?

300% Battery Improvement Settings - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I have been struggling with battery life for some time now. I have tried every possible combination of settings on juice defender but ran into issues where my 3g wouldn't connect - forcing me to power cycle. Anyway, i disabled jd but did not change anything else and now get a very noticeable improvement in battery life.

Here are screen shots from 2 separate days on the same battery from a fully charged state. In both, i am in my office, connected to the same router. I used the phone almost identically both days - talk time, screen on time, etc.

In the first shot, you can see wifi disables and enables every 5 minutes - per jd. I also had it plugged in 2x for about 5 minutes each. I got 9. 75hrs.

In the second shot, wifi is on the entire time and jd is disabled. Not sure why it was "awake" for the long period of time in the middle of the day but it still didn't affect it. I got 28hrs.

The results are drastic - nearly a 300% improvement. I have read in other places that this phone does better with wifi enabled constantly but here is the proof. Go to forum to see the screen-shots and replies from other users.

Htc Evo 4g - Can We Do A Stock Reflash Of Evo

Both my g/f and i have an evo. She's had hers a little longer and tinkered, loaded apps etc. And it crashes and reboots about 3 or 4 times a day. Mostly at random while not even touching the phone. I've only had mine a few weeks and it has not restarted once. She may have bad hardware but we don't know. So we went into settings, sd & phone storage, factory data reset. We ran that option and it cleared the phone for the most part. We thought that would be the fix but her phone still reboots a few times a day.

So is there a way to do an actual reflash of the phone? I assume that means getting the evo rom (is that right?) And an app to reflash it. We don't want a custom rom or anything, just a stock reflash so it quits crashing. Can we do that or do we have to take it into the sprint store and wait around for hours?

Samsung Captivate - What Are Complete Settings For Receiving E-mail With E-mail Boxes That Come With Phone

I went to the att site to get the proper settings to set up my att.net mail account and they are incomplete on their site, so therefore i think i am experiencing problems receiving mail. What are the complete settings for receiving e-mail with the e-mail boxes that come with the phone? I don't want to set up the yahoo icon stuff. I want one place where i can look at my e-mails. I also set the frequency to 5 minutes, the lowest time, even though i am used to "push".

Samsung Captivate - Phone Keeps Going Back / Why Is So

Does anyone have this problem?

I just got my phone today, was testing the phone to see if it works correctly. I open the menu, it went back to home screen. I clicked on the application on the menu, the application opened and soon it went back to the menu. It is random, but happens pretty frequent. It is becoming annoy because it stops my work and went back to previous screen.

Is it a hardware or software issue?

I had hard reset the phone, but doesn't work.

Does anyone have same problem?
