In Ice Cream Sandwich, the old Contacts app was now replaced with the People app. This new app is meant to keep you connected with all of your contacts, not just people you call, and it does so in different ways then the old contacts app, by hooking in to social networks and things like that. The option to only show contacts with a phone number is not an ...

If you have a rooted device you can filter which specific apps can access the 3G connection with DroidWall.

The new phone App in ICS does have a contacts tab of its own, it seems to show only the contacts with numbers so you might prefer to use that on most occasions.

As far as I know, the GMail app and the mobile version of GMail does not have any way to add filters. You will have to use the Desktop/full version of GMail to create filters.

This has recently become a feature in the native GMail app.

I just happened upon the GMail Label Notifier app. I think this will do exactly what you want.

It doesn't say it on HTC's website under the specs for the One X, but this review points out that the phone has dual-microphones, used for sound cancellation during phone calls. My guess is perhaps your recording app is recording from the wrong microphone? Or using both to cancel out the pitch you're looking for? I'd look for settings in your recording apps ...

You can block all 3G usage by going to SETTINGS > WIRELESS & NETWORKS > MOBILE NETWORKS and then clciking USE ONLY 2G Networks to disable 3G usage. There are also lots of widgets available that will allow you toggle between 2G / 3G usage.

You could use a VPN to "mask" all your traffic. This way your provider would still be able to count the amount of data transfered -- but he would no longer be able to see its contents. VPN requires a client (which comes already integrated with recent Android versions -- but additionally, there are a lot of apps available for this on the Google Playstore) ...

The People app shows all the contacts regardless of what information is available. But the dialer app only shows contacts with phone numbers.

The answer to your question most likely relates to this question "How do I change the Google Play country?". It details what you should do but read through the whole thing because the first answer requires you to make a purchase, but the second says how to do it without making a purchase.

After quite a bit of searching and testing I don't think it's possible to do. Even locking SafeSearch on your Google account on the PC doesn't change it for the phone. Regardless of this I would imagine that if your son can turn SafeSearch off even if you did lock it he would probably try getting around K9. This isn't too hard, there's even a suggested ...

I'm pretty sure what you're asking for is a firewall, so by searching for that I've found what seems to be a very popular app that might work for you: DroidWall - Front-end application for the powerful iptables Linux firewall. Allows you to restrict which apps can access the network. I tried finding some other alternatives for you, but every page I ...

As ce4 pointed out, Privoxy just seems have to left the playstore within the last month. At the moment, the probably only candidate left seems to be FilterProxy. On the other hand, if you have your device rooted, there are some additional possibilities working by manipulating the device's local hosts file. A quite good candidate in that case would be ...

I have the same issue. After playing around with One X a little bit I'm pretty sure the issue is with the noise cancellation thing, most likely software issue. There are 2 microphones on the One X - one at the bottom and one at the top. I played a high frequency sound on my earphones and tested 2 cases: I put both speakers next to the bottom mic. Sound ...

Onavo will let you do this, and it doesn't require your device to be rooted: "Data hog blocking: Restrict specific apps to Wi-Fi, or block your 3G data altogether once you exceed your data cap to avoid any additional costs" note that it's only free for a limited time (http://www.onavo.com/help).

You'll need to filter it through the web interface, then you won't see them in the fb app.

For all that they've improved the Facebook app for Android lately, it's still woefully underpowered. I don't see any way to filter anything within the app.
