Bluetooth Bug - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I have been experiencing a 100% repeatable bug affecting the bluetooth on my galaxy nexus. First a little background: i connect my gn to my car's bluetooth for hands-free, and i also connect it to the tunelink adapter for bluetooth audio playback because my car doesn't support it. Both devices only register as having the only profile they're capable of: the tunelink knows it can only do "media audio" and the car knows it can only do "phone audio. "

Now the problem: the problem is, when both devices are connected to the gn, every single phone call i make is a garbled mess. Ever since i got the tunelink, i've hand to initiate calls and then switch them to handset or speaker mode, and that's not a good thing when you have to drive in d. C. Every once and a while with their handsfree laws.

If i'm in the middle of one of these garbled calls and i unplug the tunelink and wait for the bluetooth connection to drop, the call clears up immediately. But this just isn't a suitable solution to the problem, and repeated stress on my car's power outlets isn't a good thing.

Does anyone have a solution? I can't get rid of the tunelink. It's by far the best product i've used for this purpose, and i listen to podcasts in my car all day every day (i do a lot of driving). Apparently 4. 0. 3 was going to have some bluetooth fixes, but i'll have to wait for a future update (and for verizon) before i see any of those, and who knows if they'll address this specific issue? This is so frustrating. I finally found a great product, and now i can't use it.

Oh, and i contacted tunelink, and they saw no problems on their end (naturally - not sure whether to believe them on that one). They said to wait for a bug fix.

Orange T-mobile Default Network - Samsung Galaxy S2

I've got a newly purchased samsung galaxy s2 on an orange contract. The network defaults to "orange", as you'd expect, but i've manually changed that to "orange t-mobile" as it makes a big difference in coverage on my journey to work.

When i power-cycled the phone, it reverted back to "orange" on startup. I don't plan to power cycle very often, but just wondered if there was a way of setting a preferred network on the handset instead of having to manually change every time the phone starts? On my old nokia e72, once i'd set to "orange t-mobile" the first time, it stuck even through many power cycles (crappy thing kept losing data connectivity until reset!).

Default Browser Search Feature Broken

Default browser and search feature broken after cm 4. 2. 10. 1. I updated to 4. 2. 10. 1 (and wiped the dalvik-cache) and experienced several annoying problems, worst of which is the device is much slower than ever. The most annoying of them is the default browser is broken - it won't load. This also causes the search feature on the device to fail. I've installed dolphin browser (which is ok by me) but i want my regular browser back. I reverted to cm4. 2. 9. 1 but the device is still super-slow (slower than before updating to 4. 2. 10. 1) and still no browser. Anyone know what's up here or how i can get the browser back?

Does Default Browser In Support Js/ajax And Xmlhttprequest Object

Does the default browser in android support js/ajax and the xmlhttprequest object? Running it in small test scripts using the browser in the emulator does not seem to (a) generate the correct set of http headers (no content- type or length, no get statement and instead it shows an options entry - whatever that is) and (b) ir repeats itself every couple of seconds as if it thinks the server has not responded yet and it needs to send the request again. Has anyone used this object in android in the default browser? Any suggestions?

Samsung Fascinate - Getting Really Hot When Using Browser Or Games

Anyone else's fascinate getting really hot when using the browser or games? Mine is getting hot. Not just warm, but almost uncomfortably hot. I notice the screen is getting the hottest, but the back of the phone can be pretty warm (even through the case i have on it). It's not that big of an issue, but was wondering if i was the only one having this problem, or if i should consider taking my phone to verizon and getting it replaced.

Samsung Fascinate - Default Car Dock App

I bought the custom car dock accessory from verizon last week and although i do like the design and the way it hold the device i do have some issues with a couple of things.

1. How do you get the audio to work through the 3. 5mm jack. There is a input on the back of the sliding part of the dock but when plugged into my car head unit i can't get anything to come out. I did try to hook up when i was on a call with some one and i was able to hear them when i turned the volume up but the could not hear me. It's almost like the microphone is deactivated when the devices is connected to the dock.

2. The car dock app : where do i begin. First of all you can't turn it off completely when the device is hooked up. Second you have no choice on which search app to use and which navigation app to use. It forces you to use bing and verizon navigation. This is unacceptable. For this app to be any way useful it should be completely customizable. There should be some law that keeps verizon from forcing you to use certain applications on a device.

So does anyone know how to configure this car dock app so it's any kind of useful or does anyone know anyway to completely disable it and is there a third party car dock app that more useful?

Samsung Fascinate - Any Way To Make Youtube Default To Play Videos In High Quality

Just joined the forums, thought i'd say hey and ask a few questions. I tried going to the vzw community forums. That was useless. My wife and i both got fascinate's last month and there's a few thing i'm trying to figure out:

-A week or two ago i downloaded a system update and it worked fine, with her phone though every time i try to download the same update it gives me a "server unavailable" error message. I've tried it several times over several days. My phone just says "no update available. "

-Is there any way to make youtube default to play videos in high quality? Every time i go to watch a youtube video it defaults to normal quality and i can't find a setting to change it. Can this be done?

-My phone has 5-20 second "freezes" when opening various aps (anything from the browser to a game), even when it's the only thing running. Is this just the nature of android/2. 1 or should this not be happening?

-When i first got my phone i had an interesting issue: my 3g connection stopped working (in the middle of birmingham, al) and my clock up top froze at a certain time. If i locked the phone and hit the unlock button the correct time showed on the bottom clock. A restart fixed this. Has this happened to anyone else? Any idea what caused it? A talk with the verizon rep said to open the back and pull the battery out while the phone was running for a "hard reset. " It's not happened since.

-Finally, it seems like my battery isn't lasting as long as it "should. " I look at my usage and it says my display is sucking up 71% of my battery. But i have my brightness set to the next to lowest setting and just a picture background.

I'm sure it looks like alot of complaints but overall both my wife and i are extremely pleased with our phones, despite the few annoyances.

Possible Bug In Parcelling Of Uri Instances

I'm tripping over bugs thick and fast at the moment, i must be doing more work. This one looks like such a fundamental bug that either my understanding is completely erroneous, or its possible that no-one has ever written a contentprovider that calls setnotificationuri(). The latter is unthinkable, so i'm posting here before logging a bug.

Weird Bug In Canvas / Textview

Specially to all the android developpers. Well, let's go to the problem: i'm trying to rotate a webview according with the orientation sensor. That's because below this view i have a glsurfaceview wich i don't want to rotate, so as probably you'd have suppossed i set orientation in landscape mode, avoiding the automatic rotate of the cell.

To achieve my goal i include the class webview in another one using composition. This class is named, in example, extwebview and overrides the ondraw method with canvas. Rotate(-90) (after a translate). The class extwebview extends the linearlayout one. The problems begins when i decide set the webview in a non square portion of the screen (not the whole one). So i add the webview to the extwebview with "addview(webview, 200, 300);". In the main activity i add the extwebview with "addcontentview(extwebview, new layoutparams(layoutparams. Fill_parent, layoutparams. Fill_parent));" so it should being able to use the whole screen. And now come the problem. The rotated webview appears initially fine (rotated like expected), but if i slide my finger on it left or right (coords are changed and works like up and down, but that doesn't worry me) then only shows on the screen the portion of the view wich fits into the bounds specified in the webview with (200, 300). In other words, i rotate in the extvebview but it behaves like if i would the webview one (cutting the web page to its dimmensions).

However, that's not the only one surprise (not the most interesting one, at least for me). If i add a class wich extends textview in the main activity above the extwebview with the methods: setminwidth(300) and setminheight(300) (both of them inside the overrided ondraw method) then extwebview shows the whole page rotated exactly like expected, even behaves fine when sliding my finger on it, although the portion of the web which before wasn't showed and yes now becomes insensitive to my finger slidings. In a few words, with the setminwidth and setminheight methods the limits setted to 200x300 in the webview disappear. Is this a bug? Is there any other way of achieving this effect? I've been looking inside the code of the textview and i think the question it is in the requestlayout() method but i don't know where is implemented it's code.

Webview Bug - Not Sizing Correctly / Resolve It

It appears that my webview is always full screen and doesn't respect the layout .

Also, activity menus are not the ones i set but the browsers.

If the url is www.google.com in mobile mode or stackoverflow.com
It appears to work ok?

But once you click on classic mode or any other web site in mobile/regular it takes up the whole screen.

It works ok with loaddata.code.

Android Bug Sends Messages To Wrong Contacts

Multiple android users are reporting issues with the native messaging app on their smartphones, particularly on the google nexus one, whereby text and mms messages are sent to a person other than was initially intended. The problem - which has apparently affected both modified and stock handsets - occurs when the messaging app switches the contact in the to: field of its own accord; sometimes it can be seen to change it, while at other times it happens without any visible change.

Owners of the htc incredible have also reported the problem occurring on their phone, so it's not something limited to the nexus one. Some users have been able to reproduce the fault by maintaining two separate sms conversations and switching between them mid-typing.google are apparently looking into it, but there's no official workaround beyond deleting old conversation threads when you're finished with them.

Textview Wrapped In Scrollview - Click Problem - Bug Of 2.2

The text view is on the bottom of the scroll view.

When i scroll to bottom and click the text, the result is the scroll bar disappears, rather than the text view is clicked.

If i don't click the text at once, the scroll bar will disappear a few seconds later. After that , the text view can be clicked ok.

Is that a bug? How should i do to avoid this problem?
