Htc Evo 4g - Google Talk Connection

I had a question regarding google talk.

Is it normal for my google talk connection to drop after i make or get a phone call? I had an iphone before and google talk would remain connected through meebo when i made or got a call.

On my evo the google talk connection seems to drop and when i try to sign in again it takes a while to sign in again. Is this normal?

Htc Incredible - Google Talk Icon On One Of My Screens

So i am a big google talk user (gchat) and i see that the program comes preloaded on the incredible. For one, how come this app is not available in the marketplace (i wanted to see if there was an update to install)? Also, what is the best way to switch back and forth between chats and other programs? I thought doing this on my old blackberry was pretty easy but have not discovered an efficient way of doing this. I just have the google talk icon on one of my screens that i have to keep clicking on every time i want to go back into chat. I know when you have a new google talk message you will get a notification at the top of the screen, but is that all i am going to get? It would be nice if the icon showed something, like changed a different color or had a number next to it indicating a message.

Htc Incredible - Google Talk Homescreen Icon

Is there anyway to have the google talk homescreen icon to show how many messages are received? It shows a little chat bubble in the notification bar but nothing on the icon.

For example, the htc mail icon has the number of emails received on the icon as well as on the notification bar.

I sometimes find myself looking for what app got the message and its bugging me.

Nexus - Remove Google Talk Storage App

I have cyanogen 5. 0. 6 baked on modaco with a lot of things stripped out.

Having a task manager as well i can see what's running in the background, i've noticed that 'google talk storage' is running constantly and reloads once killed.

I do not have, nor want, google talk so i don't see why this app would continue to run even when killed. I would presume that gapps is reloading it but i cannot tell for sure.

Does anyone know what the apk name is for this so i can remove it from my device?

Htc Incredible - Google Talk Is Counting As Texts

The last couple months i have gone over my texts by a couple hundred each time. I thought maybe i was sending a lot of normal texts. This last month i only sent 20 normal texts and a boatload of google talk messages because i thought they wouldn't count towards my limit.come to find out they do. I kept reading that it used data and not texts, guess thats not the case.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 - Deleted Google Talk

I rooted my xperia x10 mini pro and used titanium to get rid of all the apps that were annoying me that i would never use, google talk was one of these. However, after doing this none of my apps download in market place, i later found that the app market and various other services depend on google talk.

I searched and found the apk files for google talk, however, when i went to install them i was greeted with the message 'google. Talk.apk could not be installed on this phone'. I tried resetting my phone to factory settings but that didn't work as google talk did not install as i must have permanently deleted it.

Htc Droid Eris - Google Talk Problems Running 2.1 - V2

I'm running version 2 of the 2. 1 leak, which seems to have messed up my google talk. Messages are coming in out of order, and showing up late (i'll get a message at 3:14, message time is shown as 3:08). I've tried looking on here to see if it was a known problem, but didn't find anything.

User Suggestion On Using Google Wallet App

To all of you who love using google wallet like i do, if you add funds to a google card, write the information on that card down. I love using gw and added funds to it. Yesterday, i replaced my phone and had assumed that reloading the gw app would find all of my funds, but they weren't there. I figured that calling gw would easily solve the issue. I was transferred to the responsible financial institution behind gw and they asked for the user id# associated with the card (found by clicking on the card icon inside of gw app). Since the card wasn't showing up, they couldn't help me without that id#.

I was transferred back to google who asked how if i had "side loaded the app onto my phone" i told them that i had. They said that it isn't officially supported and without that if i had that id# they could retrieve my money, without it i am out of luck. He also informed me that the app could be removed and/or incapacitated if google decided to (and might if alot of people have issues) so i should always keep the id handy, just in case. In the end, my new phone gave me $10 and my old one had a balance of maybe $14, so no big deal. But i will keep up with that information from now on.

Btw, i was very surprised that none of my gw transactions showed up in my google checkout online account. The cs rep reiterated that this was also because the app isn't 'officially' supported. He said there is no news if or when it will ever get the official green light. Just a heads up to save you guys some money, keep up with those id#'s or don't damage or lose your phone.

Can User Upload Apps To Phone Without Google / Operator Intervention

I am new to android and would like to understand the concept. Some beginners questions. Is android truly open in the sense that one can you distribute apps without having to pay google / operator (or anyone else)?

Can the user upload apps to the phone without google / operator intervention (for example by going directly to a site)? How is the upload actually done?

Will there automatically be google ads in the android application or is this controlled by the app developer / user?

Does Email Always Contain Exchange

It seems like android 2. 0 is good enough for verizon to ship. All the rumors point to the end of this month. But as a developer how can one know what to depend on android 2. 0 devices? Is the calendar app there? Does email always contain exchange? I'ts not clear to me where the line between android os, google, and handset makers is. It would be nice if there was a list of features/components in these categories:

Included in android os. There unless the maker exluded it. ( Contacts, email, etc). Licensed to google. There if the maker licensed it ( maps, gmail, etc) - added by makers ( motoblur, etc. ) Will android 2. 0 come with a new sdk?  If so, when do we get to see it?

Activesync And Exchange Calendar

Having a bit of an issue trying to set up my wife's new vzw lg ally. It runs android 2. 1 for those that don't know. I am trying to get it to sync with an exchange accout. It works fine for email and contacts but won't sync at all with the exchange calendar. It says "sync error - sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly. " This message never goes away unless i turn off syncing the exchange calendar. Everthing else seems to sync fine regardless of this message.

I have tried to remove syncing the google calendar with no luck. I know i can use tounchdown since i am using it on my hacked tp2 android with the same exchange server, but really wan't to use the stock stuff. It seems like it should be an 'easy' fix since i am not having problems syncing contacts or emails. Btw - this is with an exchange 2003 sp2 server.

Exchange Activesync And Patternlock

Just got my htc legend a couple of days ago, and i'm loving it!

One thing i like is that i can unlock the phone quick and easy, through the pattern. But when i enabled my work email through exchange activesync, it forced me to put a password on instead of using the pattern.

Anyone know if i can bypass the "you need a password", and still use the patternlock when i have my work emails on my phone?

Syncing With Exchange And Local Computer

I had windows mobile before, so it was pretty easy to setup syncing of calenders and contacts. I have my work exchange account setup and everything syncing, and i want it to sync to my local outlook on my home computer. But it is keeping 2 seperate appointments and contacts in the phone and not just combining everything into 1. Can i change this? I hate it because if i put something in the calendar at home, i dont see iton my work calendar, and vise vera.

Lg Ally - Syncing Microsoft Exchange

Is there any direct way to sync ms exchange with the ally? I have the roadsync app as a trial version which works, but soon ill have to pay for it which i don't want to do. The phone manual says it can sync directly like the other email formats, but you have to contact the administrator. Has anyone figured out how to do this? It just seems so unneccesary to have to get an app when the other email formats don't need one.

Email Exchange Missing Drafts Folder

Mot droid x running droid 2. 2. 1 on verizon, i'm accessing my email on an exchange server and life is good. Except (why else would i be here). My drafts folder is no where to be found on my droid x list of folders. I am a new user (about 2 weeks) and have noticed this since day-01, i'm just now looking for a solution. I've looked for it as a subfolder - no dice. I can access the same exchange email account with outlook, and via web access and the drafts folder is there and it is accessible. How do i get my drafts folder to show up on my droid-x?

Htc Incredible - Setup Exchange Activesync

I just set up exchange activesync, and here are my thoughts:

1. Very easy to set up. My company does not use security policies, though. I just typed in server, domain, username, password, and email address, and everything worked flawlessly.

2. Emails sync with outlook (both send and receive) about as fast as they did on my blackberry with bes server.

3. Calendar stuff syncs fine and i have had no problems yet, but it seems to take a little bit longer than email to sync. Maybe a few minutes or so. (Or maybe i just had a weaker signal when i was messing around with the calendar, so everything was just slower).

4. Folder view for emails is far superior to blackberry. I can easily view the directory structure of outlook and view the emails within each individual directory.

5. I don't use notes or tasks, so i can't comment on that.

6. Overall, i will have to say that my experience rivals my corporate email experience on blackberry, which is a huge surprise. I thought blackberry was far and away the best device for email, but i guess i was wrong.

On a side note, i still think that blackberry's notification profiles kill android's notification profiles, even with the various apps out there for android.

Htc Desire - Exchange Activesync Contacts

I use activesync to synchronize my contacts between my exchange server 2010 and my htc desire (2. 2). Quite a few of my contacts just have a company name but no first/last name (like hotels, banks, etc).

When synchronizing, first and last names get added to these contacts, e.g. Having a contact with company name "adobe systems incorporated" will add "adobe" as first name and "incorporated" as last name.

Having far more than 1'000 contacts, whereof an unknown number gets messed up is rather annoying.

Htc Hero - Syncing Contacts With Exchange

I want to sync contacts. The days of "this data is exclusively on my phone" and "this data is exclusively in my e-mail" is over for me. But there is still a difference between what is useful to me on a super-portable device (handset) used not least for calling, texting and on-the-fly data checks, and a less portable device (laptop) used not least for writing and overview. My contacts contain many kinds of data, multiple phone numbers, addresses, b'days, notes and stuff.

The following is my findings:
- Android seems to think that syncing contacts with exchange is bad. Maybe it's a google vs.microsoft thing. I don't know. Can't make it work for contacts unless using a third party client.
- When syncing contacts with google i can only sync all my gmail contacts or none.

My dilemma is this: i can't sync with either platform without a mess!

In the blue corner: i have in my outlook exchange my telephone contacts. This is because my previous phone was winmo, not because i love outlook.

Syncing: either via a third party client (which has yet to work for me) or i can stuff them in a csv-file and put them on my handset - but then i can't sync them and every subsequent update will only exist on the handset.

In the red corner: i have in my gmail account a huge mess of e-mail receipients. Syncing between handset and google is hella easy. But many, many of the gmail contacts i very seldom use, and only for e-mailing.

To sum up rhetorically: am i the only one to think that my handset contact list should consist of some of my gmail contacts (e.g. Those with a phone number attached to them) rather than all of them?

I think i need a separate site: contacts.google.com where i can decide what contacts i want to share between which platforms, sites and clients.

I want to leave exchange behind. I want to sync with google. Not one-off import from google, but sync. How do i not get every last person i ever sent an e-mail to clogging up my handset's phonebook?

What Makes It Impossible To Exchange Applications Between Phones

I've got some questions about a possible android weak point:

1. What makes it impossible to exchange applications between android phones? Can't they be cracked? If so, what's the use of android market?
And don't tell me that this is illegal :-).

2. Would an android based p2p application be accepted in the android market?
