    Thread T-Mobile Jump return packaging?

    The instructions for returning the old phone for a Jump! upgrade (this is not JoD, but Jump version 1) say to package the phone in the bubble package that was provided, but I can't find any. There was the loose plasticy envelope that the phone came in that was bubble-ish, but it was sealed with...

    Thread Suggestions for microSD

    [TLDR/Summary] Many have pointed out that unless you are constantly loading new content onto the card, the only thing that matters is whether it can keep up with video recording. With sample 4k videos on the S7 Edge only coming in around 6MB/s byterate, any U1 or U3 card should be fine. If you...

    Thread Stock email app "Load More" feature not working

    [Situation resolved, see following message...] Recently, probably since the 5.1.1 update, but I don't remember when this first stopped working, the "Load More" feature has stopped working on the stock email app. If an email was too large to load fully, then the Load More button appears, but...

    Thread [Q] Storage sizes don't add up

    I'm having a very odd problem with my S5. When I go to the storage tab for the internal storage, the bar graph initially shows that I have it about 3/4 full, but it is still calculating the sizes of everything. When it is done calculating, the bar graph (shown in attachment) is now totally...

    Thread annoying auto dim at night

    I'm having an annoying problem where the screen is too dim to read comfortably at night. I started thinking that there was something about the settings that was refusing to remember my brightness setting, but then I realized that it only happens at night. If I wake up the watch it is set to a...

    Thread [Q] Exercise tracking only for moving activities?

    I was checking out the Fit and Gear 2 in BB today and the exercise tracking/coaching apps seemed to only be set up for various activities that involve movement such as jogging, hiking, and biking. I was hoping to use it to track gym workouts (whether weightlifting or aerobics workouts), but...

    Thread Reverse camera sync?

    I had to replace my phone and re-pair the gear with the new one. In the process it does a factory reset on the Gear. I saved the photos from the old Gear, but don't know how to insert them back onto the watch. I put them in the camera directory, but as I might have expected this did not cause...

    Thread Dark mode (for theaters, etc.)

    Last night I was watching a movie with a friend and afterwards she complained that my watch kept turning on and was distracting. Good point. You can make the watch silent with a fairly quick toggle, but you can't disable its display when a bright light would be inappropriate very easily...

    Thread "app" could not be downloaded due to an error (920)

    I just booted my brand new 2014 note and when the home screen finally showed up the notification bar was full of warning sign/exclamation marks each mentioning a different app saying "<app name>" could not be downloaded due to an error (920)". I've bought well over a dozen Android devices...

    Thread Alarm auto snoozing

    I searched and didn't see anyone complaining about this here, but I found hits on other sites. I've only had a Sensation for about a month now (warranty replacement for my G2) but I've had the biggest problem with the alarm not sounding, or sounding only very briefly. I just had an alarm go...

    Thread [Humor] Official, and very tasty, Froyo! (non-Google)

    I stopped off to get some groceries on my way back home tonight and lo and behold there was Froyo waiting for me (officially released from the source through regular distribution channels)! I didn't want to make a mess trying it out right there in the grocery store so I waited until I got home...

    Thread Nexus One model name is "Passion" (i.e. not "Dragon"?)

    I see some references here that the Nexus One is the Dragon phone, but the evidence would suggest otherwise. First, the names "Dragon", "Passion" and "Bravo" were the subject of leaked rumors for a while before any of the devices appeared. The first spy photos were of the Nexus One and the...

    Thread Grrrr! All SMS deleted...

    I had all of my SMS messages for over a year saved on the phone. A couple thousand of them at least. Until today. I was receiving a couple of SMS from a friend of mine and lamenting that the built in messaging software doesn't provide a nice way to see a message at a glance without having to...
