It sounds like you just dragged the tray shortcut off the action bar accidentally. Try doing the following: Long press on an empty space on any home screen Select "Launcher Actions" from the menu that appears Select "Open/Close App Drawer" Drag the new shortcut back onto middle button of the Action Bar

They both may have 3.5mm jacks, but if you look at it you can see the the insulating plastic bands around the metal jack. The problem is that Apple wire these sections of the jack up to different inputs than other manufacturers, so that different sections of the jack carry different signals than normal. I have heard that as long as you're happy with getting ...

There's a forum post at xda-developers which details a fairly involved and definitely for the faint at heart. However, do not follow that guide, it's included only for posterity, and there is an easier way to skin your particular cat. At this point, cue the huge disclaimer that a lot of things might go wrong when doing this, and always be sure to follow ...

An Apple accessory only working in Apple hardware - sounds about right to me ;-). You can get converters take a look here but it's probably cheaper to just get some 'standard' ones.

Since you mentioned text-messages my guess is that maybe you have a draft that the messaging app wants you to finish, although with my HTC Evo it doesn't do what yours is doing. Try opening the message app and on the screen where you can see "All Messages" open the menu and you might see an option to select "Drafts" (looks like a old 3.5" floppy). If you ...

No. It's a CDMA phone using 800 and 1900 mhz bands. CDMA phones can't be used on GSM networks (AT&T, Tmobile...). GSM and CDMA are completely different technologies.

The Thunderbolt has DLNA, so if your TV supports DLNA you can use that. On my Samsung phone, you use the AllShare app for DLNA, but I think the Thunderbolt has another app built in. Page 275 of the User Manual describes how to use DLNA. This droidforums thread has a discussion of ways to use DLNA without a compliant TV, I'm not sure how well other ways ...

There are many people facing similar problem here, http://community.htc.com/na/htc-forums/android/f/107/t/12961.aspx?PageIndex=3 The solutions they came up with was: Use handcent SMS app instead of stock SMS app Keep low number of messages in inbox Delete read message Waiting for Gingerbread update which will fix it If I were you I'd choose number 1.

Had this problem for the past couple days, and finally was sick of it. This morning, I tried deleting all my SMS messages. After that didn't work, I did this: Menu - Settings - Applications - Manage Applications - All - Messages, then hit "Clear Data". That resolved the issue. You can try doing this before deleting your SMS messages, but it may delete them ...

Menu - Settings - Applications - Manage Applications - All - Messages -> Clear Data worked for my HTC Thunderbolt.

This (the mic not working) is apparently a widely known bug with the Thunderbolt. Sorry, this is probably not the answer you were looking for, but it appears to be an issue with that particular phone and TRRS (tip ring ring sleeve) headsets. Out of curiosity, do you see a "headset" (little boom below the 'phones) icon on the phone when you plug it in, or ...

I have been neck deep in exactly this for a long time, the problem is Apple innovates special stuff that's not compatible with other brands, they have deals with many accessory manufactures to make stuff that has many functions like Mic and buttons that do great things like change tracks and skip etc. What I find is Android is totally lacking, and it's a ...

Are you able to get into the recovery boot menu? (On my phone, it is accessed by holding down the vol down button when turning on the phone). If so, there may be something that can help you. I have had this happen to me, and what I had to do was to try re-installing the ROM from the zip file, using the process described here (scroll down to Flashing ...

It could be your number being "blacklisted" on your wife's phone. There are a lot of apps on the playstore offering this feature, and some Android versions can do so on their own (just configure the contact in your contacts list correspondingly). So here's what you could do: check with your SIM card placed in some other phone (if that option exists; at ...

Definitely, the most unusual timing to anwser my own question! When I picked up the phone. I accidentally held down the menu button and the on screen keyboard came up. The up▲ and down▼ buttons there will do the trick!

If your home screen is dying like this, check your debug logs (if you have adb installed). My guess? You're running out of RAM and Android is killing the home screen process to get more RAM. You might want to stop some services (or root & remove stupid carrier bloatware). CyanogenMOD and some other custom Android builds will allow you to "lock" the ...

Switch to the call you want to end, hit end. A few seconds later the other caller will "call you back", which is actually just the other call resuming. It's weird, but that's how cdma signaling works. "it's not a bug, it's a feature"

Go into Settings -> Applications -> All -> Messages. Clear the cache and the data for the app the restart the device. I was having the same issue with messages to my wife and it cleared it up. Hope this helps!

If the files were stored on a physical microSD card, you may be able to use file recovery software on your computer. There are a number of undelete and recovery software options, but many cost money. http://pcinspector.de has a flash memory recovery tool for free (Smart Recovery handles flash memory). Writing more data to the card increases the chance that ...

If your TV doesn't support DLNA and you have some other DLNA capable device, like an Xbox360, PS3, or DLNA capable blu-ray player, you can use that as a bridge between your TV and the phone. Just set your phone to use wi-fi and run whatever app comes w/ the phone (or download some other app on the market) to stream via DLNA. Your DLNA capable device should ...

Regarding the battery, there's an LTE toggle on the market which might help. You can find a blog post about it here. This is a major culprit, and from what I've seen there's no native way to disable LTE as you can WiMAX on Sprint's phones (I don't own an Thunderbolt, I've just been reading about them so I'm not sure how accurate this is). That being said, ...

Right now my HTC EVO does not have this issue. However I have noticed from time to time that the typing something in the virtual keyboard can be slower than usual. Usually though this is due to an app being installed or I'm switching around in several apps really fast and the lag doesn't last more than the first one or two key selections. If you haven't ...

The guy at Bestbuy has incorrectly informed you, it will work, but it depends on the phone. It works on my Droid Charge.. with the mic, I had to force the headphone plug to go further into the phone... and the mic work... the remote however requires a driver... that has not been made yet (to my knowledge) for the headphones

The configuration for i devices in the case of headphones that also use a mic is different than for other products in general. Headphone & mic combos that state "designed specifically for ipod" etc. often will not function with non mac devices. The headphone may function but mic and volume controls etc may not function correctly. If you're lucky they ...

I have the Droid Incredible 2, and I was running into the same thing, but I figured out a way to get it to work: hold down the volume down button of the headset while inserting into your phone. You should now see the headset recognized as a microphone headset, and so your mic and your clicker should both work.
