click "applications", click menu button, click "edit". You should now be able to drag the email icon away. Then just replace it with the gmail icon by dragging it to its place. The other way is to configure the mail application to connect to gmail with imap or pop, but I wouldn't recommend it since gmail app is much better. Hope this helps!

No, the Droid is a CDMA phone. In general you can assume that phones on Verizon and Sprint won't work on AT&T or T-Mobile, and vice-versa.

You can install apps on the HTC Aria using the ADB client. You'll need to install the android SDK on your PC, and then use ADB to install the .apk files. To install the android SDK, follow the steps in the Android Developer's guide to setting up your phone for development. If you're on Windows, you'll need to go to HTC to get the device drivers, as ...

This might have something to do with a feature of MMS called Content adaptation. Your operator's MMSC (Multimedia Messaging Service Center) determines if the data sent is in a format supported by your handset, and if not, transcodes it into another format. This can cause some problems between different devices and operators. For example, my Android receives ...

Unfortunately, it seems like the HTC Aria does have that ability, but AT&T has removed it.

The short answer is: No, they are not the same. The long answer is as follows: At least for dimensions, they are not exactly the same (HTC One XL, to the right, is a bit smaller) Also, from the comparison table you talk about: HTC One X AT&T wouldn't support HSDPA 900, while HTC One XL does. HTC One X AT&T supports 4G network with LTE 700 MHz ...

No you can't flash an international ROM on your device. Because your phone's configuration is different than international version. Details are given below: Chipset: Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon (AT&T)----- Nvidia Tegra 3 (International) CPU: Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait (AT&T)----- Quad-core 1.5 GHz (International) GPU: Adreno 225 ...

Things that I tried that did not fix this problem: Restarting the phone Removing and reinserting the sim card Uninstalling the Skype app Calling AT&T support (611) and asking for them to reset the network registration of my phone Restarting my phone in safe mode Booting my phone into system recovery mode and wiping the cache partition Solution: ...

For the record (mostly for foreign googlers): A working solution has been proposed here: Is there an app for searching installed apps? (Dumb Search alternative)

Calling AT&T may get you an unlock code within 24 hours. You do not need to buy one, or follow this technical guide. But if all else fails, you can unlock via a downgrade to 4.1.1. How to do this is below. The most reputable source I found is here: XDA Developers AT&T Samsung SGH-I317, a BIG thank you to: Odin Guide and last steps are from After ...

Okay, here's what I can gather... There should be no real loss of capability if you move to AT&T. While AT&T does not advertise LTE Band 8 capability on its S5s, Band 8 is largely used in South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan; unless you travel to those places, it shouldn't be a problem. I would, however, check AT&T's coverage map to be certain. ...

Previously I have used Sizable Send to transfer very large videos from my phone to my boss's. You can send them the download link via email or text. Alternatively, if the video isn't very large you could use Dropbox in the same way Depending on the file size it might take a while to transfer.

I just wrestled with this on my galaxy note 9.0. In /system/app there is a file called (for me) FWUpgrade.apk Even though I am rooted it refused to rename or remove it in a file explorer... I tried a few. I eventually just used terminal to chmod 666 it after su-ing to get root. Then I removed it no prob. So, at the term prompt: su cd /system/app chmod 666 ...

I called AT&T, and this is a mandatory update. Other than rooting, there's no way to avoid the message. You can avoid the download by not going onto WiFi. If you install the update, you need to re-enter WiFi passwords EVERY time you reconnect to a WiFi network. Horrible! I'm avoiding this thing even if have to keep hitting the home key when the message ...

If you don't have a Nandroid backup, you'll have to find a stock ROM for your device. Your device is not that well-known, the only resource I could find is on XDA-Developers. There you can find information on how to use ODIN to flash a stock ROM (post #5). In the future, creating a Nandroid backup is always recommended before flashing a ROM, just in case ...

I went around in circles with this by trying open and WPA security but nothing worked. The phone was not even listed on the router's device list. The MAC address filter was the problem. I fixed the issue by adding the phones mac address to the routers "white list" and now everything works well. Check you router mac filters or turn them off.

I have AT&T U-Verse at home. My S3 connected to the gateway with no issues. Did you try to remove the saved network from the phone, factory reset the gateway and then try adding it. If that fails, try to manually add the SSID and key after you remove the network from the phone settings. Worst case ask them to send you a new gateway. If you changed the ...

Routers from Mikrotik with RouterOS has problems with 4.0.4 Androids as well. You have to upgrade to 5.22RC1. Contact Support@mikrotik.com to get this test version (In case if you are reading this the 5.22 isn't already released officialy =)

Easy fix. Don't use your wi-fi password. Use the Wireless Key #. I have been trying over and over with my personal password and kept getting the same authentication errors everyone has been discussing with u-verse. I pulled the paperwork that the installation guy gave me and just taking a last resort shot at it, I tried the Wireless Key # written on the ...

Unfortunately for us (not so much for manufacturers and carriers,) Gingerbread closed the exploits that were previously being used to gain root privileges on older Android OS versions. This means that tools like SuperOneClick and similar will no longer work. The only way to get root on Samsung devices with Gingerbread is to flash a pre-rooted image onto ...

Odin-ing to 2.2 should be no different than Odin-ing to 2.1. If you flash pure stock no traces will be left in the system or data partitions of any rooting or custom ROMs or whatever. You may need to clean your internal/external SD to remove folders from apps that require root, just in case, but that's about it. This XDA thread has 1-click Odin for 2.2. ...

I found this: http://ars.samsung.com/customer/usa/jsp/faqs/faqs_view_us.jsp?SITE_ID=22&PG_ID=2&PROD_SUB_ID=557&PROD_ID=558&AT_ID=368733 and it seems to be working. I'm not really sure now what that OTA update was but I'll ignore it.

The official update will almost certainly unroot and not allow free WiFi tether. I'll let someone with experience speak to the bluetooth issues.

I know this is a really old (and probably no longer relevant) post, but as I have an HTC Aria and I shared the same issue, I thought it was worth posting another option. I would suggest checking out a program called SuperOneClick. With it, I was able to permanently enable my Aria to install non-market apps. It will also allow for the installation of the ...
