Why does my Android 2.2 powered Samsung Galaxy I5510 receive duplicated messages (SMS)?
Friday 07th of January 2011
I own a brand new Samsung Galaxy I5510 (Android 2.2). Everything works fine and I really like the device. My problem is:Every time Some times I receive a message from a phone number that is not in my contact list, the phone continues receiving it every few hours. Facts I pointed out:The time between those messages is not constant.It never happened when the number was in my contact list.Deleting the thread does not solve the problem.The senders do not fool me and send the message again and again.It seems to stop after a day or two.restart of the phone does not solve the problem.I am not sure if it really receives the message again or if it just copies the old one.Does anybody has an idea what could cause the described behavior?Thank you!EDIT: Another point why it is not likely to be a provider issue: I never received a duplicated message while the phone was turned off. Means: I never switched the phone on in the morning and received one or more such messages instantly.EDIT 2: I looked through all the phone log. It happened by now for two numbers. Both were not in my contact list. The

Why does my android phone gain battery when I turn it off and on again?
Saturday 30th of June 2012
When I got my new android phone (ZTE N762), I noticed something. If my phone is about halfway on battery, and I turn it off for a few hours, it will gain battery life when I turn it back on, around 5%-10%. I use this trick whenever I'm low on battery.Does anyone know why this is?

Why is my android os so high?
Tuesday 18th of December 2012
Hi all, I have one question. Am trying to figure why my android os hovers around 65%. I use Microsoft exchange and gmail. I have adjusted syncing, I tried a battery monitor and that told me 121 wakelocks, which in my understanding isn't too bad. I get 16-18 hours on a charge with moderate use, but still need to know if anyone else is having same numbers. I am on sprint if that makes a difference, any thoughts would be appreciated.

charging - Why does my Android device generate more heat on an AC charger?
Thursday 16th of June 2011
My Huawei IDEOS u8150 is new and ever since I used the AC charger that was supplied with it, my device gets a bit hotter (a noticable 5 degrees Celsius extra compared to charging via USB from laptop). Why is it not that hot when I try to charge it through PC/laptop?I hear a whirring noise from the AC charger always and the adapter gets a little warm too.Also, my device charges faster on the AC charger compared to the laptop charge method. Is this normal on all devices in general? Or all Huawei devices? Or is this something faulty I should worry about?

Why has my phone gotten so slow?
Sunday 06th of January 2013
My Triumph has gotten very slow. There is like a 5 second delay when I touch an app to when it actually launches the app. A black screen usually shows up before the app's title bar does. It lags when I unlock (I'm using the Holo style ring lock). Wi-Fi turns on slow. The phone is just overall sluggish. Is it because I didn't do factory resets before flashing updated ROMs? I have never done this. I usually wipe the cache before I flash an updated ROM but I forgot the last two times. I've updated CM7 to CM7, I've never used a CM9 ROM. Running Fast Reboot used to help, but it doesn't really anymore. How can I make the phone less slow without doing a factory reset?

Why is my 4G Hotspot so slow???
Sunday 06th of May 2012
Just added the hotspot feature to my Rezound. My 4G on the phone is blazing fast at 25-30mbps download with 4-6mbps upload consistently. Unfortunately, when I use my laptop through the hotspot, I average about 2mbps download and 4mbps upload. Why is it so slow??? I can't stand it.

Why does my Android phone think my partitioned SD card is damaged?
Tuesday 18th of February 2014
For some reason, my Android phone, running on Gingerbread 2.3.3 keeps saying that my mini SD card is damaged and refuses to let me use it, when it is just partitioned. I partitioned it so that I could use Link2SD, but now it says there is no SD card there. Is there any way to make my card accept the partitioned card?
